HAMILTON, Bermuda, Nov. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Nabors Industries Ltd. (NYSE: NBR) (“Nabors”) announced today that Nabors Industries, Inc. (“NII”), its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, has commenced an offering of $550 million senior priority guaranteed notes due 2030 (the “Notes”). The Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by Nabors and certain of Nabors’ indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries which also guarantee the Existing Senior Priority Guaranteed Notes (as defined below).
The Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of NII and will rank pari passu with NII’s existing 7.375% Senior Priority Guaranteed Notes due 2027 (the “Existing Senior Priority Guaranteed Notes”). The Notes will be guaranteed, jointly and severally, by (i) Nabors, (ii) each of the subsidiaries that guarantee Nabors’ existing 7.25% Senior Guaranteed Notes due 2026 and 7.50% Senior Guaranteed Notes due 2028 (together, the “Existing Guaranteed Notes”) and (iii) certain lower-tier subsidiaries of Nabors that guarantee NII’s revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”) but do not currently guarantee the Existing Guaranteed Notes (the “Lower Tier Notes Guarantors”), other than Nabors Alaska Drilling, Inc. The guarantee of the Notes by the Lower Tier Notes Guarantors will be contractually subordinated in right of payment with respect to the Lower Tier Notes Guarantors’ guarantee of the Revolving Credit Facility. Each of the guarantors of the Notes have guaranteed the Existing Senior Priority Guaranteed Notes and will guarantee the Notes on an equal and ratable basis.
Nabors intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay all of its outstanding 5.75% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Senior Notes due 2025”). The remaining net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes. As of today’s date, there is $474.1 million in aggregate principal of Senior Notes due 2025 outstanding.
The Notes will be offered and sold to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to persons outside the United States in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act and applicable exemptions from registration, prospectus or like requirements under the laws and regulations of the relevant jurisdictions outside the United States. The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Notes will also not be registered in any jurisdiction outside of the United States and no action or steps will be taken to permit the offer of the Notes in any such jurisdiction where any registration or other action or steps would be required to permit an offer of the Notes.
