Ensco plc and Rowan Companies plc Merge to Form Ensco Rowan plc, Industry-Leading Offshore Driller
Ensco Rowan plc announced the completion of the previously disclosed merger of Ensco plc (“Ensco”) and Rowan Companies plc (“Rowan”), which follows the satisfaction of the transaction’s closing conditions including overwhelming approval by each company’s shareholders and sanction by the UK Court of the scheme of arrangement implementing the transaction. The Company will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol ESV. EnscoRowan will maintain its headquarters in London, England, with a significant presence in Houston, Texas.

Under the terms of the transaction agreement, Rowan shareholders received 2.750 Ensco shares for each Rowan share they owned immediately prior to closing. Legacy Ensco and Rowan shareholders own approximately 55% and 45%, respectively, of the outstanding shares of EnscoRowan. Following the closing of the transaction, ordinary shares of the combined company have been consolidated through a 4:1 reverse stock split, resulting in approximately 197 million ordinary shares outstanding.

Tom Burke, EnscoRowan’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “The successful completion of our merger further enhances our market leadership with a fleet of high-specification floaters and jackups and diverse customer base. Our growing geographic presence, technologically-advanced drilling rigs and talented employees position us exceptionally well to meet increasing and evolving customer demand. I look forward to executing on the significant long-term growth opportunities we believe we can capture from our combined strengths as the offshore sector recovers.”

Carl Trowell, EnscoRowan’s Executive Chairman, stated, “The combination of Ensco and Rowan creates an industry-leading offshore driller across all water depths, establishing a stronger company capable of thriving throughout the market cycles. Our increased scale, diversification and financial strength will provide significant advantages to better serve our customers and unlock long-term value for our shareholders. We are excited to move forward together as a combined company.”

In conjunction with the closing of the transaction and the termination of the Rowan revolving credit facilities, the Company has executed an agreement with its banking group to increase the capacity under its revolving credit facility. As a result, EnscoRowan will have borrowing capacity under its unsecured revolving credit facility of approximately $2.3 billion through September 2019, and approximately $1.7 billion from October 2019 through September 2022. It is EnscoRowan’s intention that the senior notes issued by Ensco plc and the senior notes issued by Rowan Companies Inc. guaranteed by Rowan Companies plc will be made pari passu and equal in right of payment with each other.

Jon Baksht, EnscoRowan’s Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, added, “We are pleased with the support of our banking group and their recognition of the strengthened position of the Company following the closing of the merger. We will have one of the strongest liquidity positions in the offshore drilling sector, giving us a competitive advantage as we move forward as a combined company.”

Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC acted as lead financial advisor to Ensco. HSBC Securities (USA) Inc. and Citigroup Global Markets Inc. also provided financial advice to Ensco. Ensco’s legal advisors are Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP and Slaughter and May. Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC served as financial advisor to Rowan, and Kirkland & Ellis LLP served as legal advisor.
