Noble Corporation plc announces changes to its share capital

November 07, 2022

SUGAR LAND, Texas, Nov. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Noble Corporation plc ("Noble") (CSE: NOBLE, NYSE: NE) today announces changes to its share capital.

Noble has today issued 1,782,340,951 new capitalization shares, each with a nominal value of USD 1. These shares are non-dilutive to holders of A ordinary shares and will not be admitted to trading and official listing on any exchange.

The capitalization shares have been issued without voting rights attached to them, and have no entitlement to dividends. Capitalization shares do not carry the right to participate in any distribution on a winding up of Noble other than on a deferred basis.

The new capitalization shares have been issued to a Noble subsidiary to capitalize the merger reserve created in connection with the business combination with The Drilling Company of 1972 A/S. It is expected that such shares will be subsequently cancelled, with no impact on the A ordinary shares, as part of the planned reduction of capital to create further distributable reserves in Noble.
