Schlumberger Holdings Corporation Announces Results of Early Tenders in Debt Exchange Offer, an Increase in Aggregate Principal Amount of New Notes due 2028 to $1,500,000,000, and the Waiver of the $500,000,000 Principal Cap on its 2025 Notes
Schlumberger Holdings Corporation (“SHC” or the “Company”) today announced the early participation results of a private offer to exchange three series of senior notes in the table below (collectively the “Old Notes”) for a new series of senior notes to be due in 2028 (the “New Notes”). The offer is referred to herein as the “Exchange Offer.”
The table below identifies the aggregate principal amount of each series of Old Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) in the Exchange Offer as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 26, 2019 (the “Early Participation Date”):
|Title of Security||CUSIP Number||ISIN||Outstanding||Level||Tendered|
|3.000% Senior Notes due December 21, 2020 (“2020 Notes”)||
|3.625% Senior Notes due December 21, 2022 (“2022 Notes”)||
4.000% Senior Notes due December 21, 2025 (“2025 Notes”)
A total of $873,539,000 aggregate principal amount of 2025 Notes was tendered for exchange by debt holders in the early participation window. Consequently, SHC decided to increase the aggregate principal amount of New Notes offered in the Exchange Offer to $1,500,000,000 from the previously announced $1,250,000,000 aggregate principal amount and to waive the $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount cap applicable to the 2025 Notes. The 2025 Notes tendered for exchange will be subject to proration pursuant to the terms of the Exchange Offer, as described in the offering memorandum (the “Offering Memorandum”), dated March 13, 2019.
SHC expects to accept all 2020 Notes and 2022 Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn as of the Early Participation Date. Because the aggregate principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn as of the Early Participation Date exceeds the increased $1,500,000,000 cap in aggregate principal amount of New Notes that SHC intends to issue in the Exchange Offer, SHC does not anticipate accepting any additional tenders of Old Notes in the Exchange Offer.
Holders whose Old Notes are accepted for exchange will receive in cash accrued and unpaid interest from the last applicable interest payment date to, but excluding, the date on which the exchange of such Old Notes is settled, and amounts due in lieu of fractional amounts of New Notes.
The Exchange Offer was conducted upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offering Memorandum.
Terms of the Exchange Offer
The Exchange Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on April 9, 2019, unless extended or earlier terminated by SHC.

The New Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws. Therefore, the New Notes may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws.
