A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S initiates demerger and separate listing of Maersk Drilling Holding A/S

ANNOUNCEMENT

A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S initiates demerger and separate listing of Maersk Drilling Holding A/S

In continuation of the announcement on 17 August 2018, the A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S (APMM) Board of Directors has decided to initiate the separation of APMM’s drilling activities through a demerger of APMM. The shares in Maersk Drilling Holding A/S (Maersk Drilling) and its subsidiaries as well as certain other assets and liabilities will be contributed to a new company with the legal name “The Drilling Company of 1972 A/S” (Maersk Drilling Listco) and the shares hereof will be admitted for trading and official listing on Nasdaq Copenhagen A/S (Nasdaq Copenhagen).

Following the anticipated signing and publication of statutory demerger documents on 4 March 2019, the Board of Directors of APMM intends to propose the demerger for approval by the shareholders at the APMM Annual General Meeting on 2 April 2019. Subject to such approval, the shares in Maersk Drilling Listco will be distributed to APMM shareholders, who in addition to their shareholding in APMM will become shareholders in Maersk Drilling Listco. The anticipated first day of trading for the shares of Maersk Drilling Listco on Nasdaq Copenhagen is on 4 April 2019.

The APMM Board of Directors intends to propose a single share class structure for Maersk Drilling Listco with shares in Maersk Drilling Listco being distributed to the APMM shareholders on a pro-rata basis based on the nominal value of the shares in APMM. Shareholders will receive one share in Maersk Drilling Listco per nominal APMM DKK 500 share and two shares in Maersk Drilling Listco per nominal APMM DKK 1,000 share. The demerger and distribution of the Maersk Drilling Listco shares will be tax-exempt for Danish tax purposes.

A.P. Møller Holding A/S, who holds around 41.5% of the shares in APMM, has agreed to a 360-days lockup of their shareholding in Maersk Drilling Listco, subject to certain customary exemptions.

The Executive Management team of Maersk Drilling consists of CEO Jørn Madsen and CFO Jesper Ridder Olsen, who will also serve as Executive Management team in the future listed company. The Board of Directors of Maersk Drilling consists of Chairman Claus V. Hemmingsen, Vice Chairman Robert M. Uggla, Kathleen McAllister, Robert Routs, Martin N. Larsen and Mads D. Winther. The Board of Directors, except from Mads D. Winther, will be proposed as members of the Board of Directors in the future listed company. Two employee representatives are expected to be elected in March 2019 for a term of four years and join the Board of Directors upon completion of the demerger.
