Weatherford International plc Announces the Upsizing and Pricing of a $1,600 Million Senior Notes Offering

HOUSTON, October 14, 2021/PRNewswire/ -- Weatherford International plc (NASDAQ: WFRD) ("Weatherford" or the "Company") today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Weatherford International Ltd. (the "Issuer"), has priced its previously announced offering of 8.625% senior notes due 2030 (the "Notes") at an issue price of 100%. The aggregate principal amount of the Notes to be issued was increased from the previously announced $1,500.0 million to $1,600 million. The offering of the Notes is expected to close on October 27, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.

The Notes will pay interest semi-annually on June 1 and December 1 of each year, beginning on June 1, 2022 at a rate of 8.625% per year. The Notes will mature on April 30, 2030. The Notes will be guaranteed by the Company and the same subsidiaries of the Company that guarantee the Issuer's 6.50% Senior Secured First Lien Notes due September 15, 2028.

The Issuer will use the net proceeds from the offering and cash on hand to purchase, in a separately announced tender offer, or redeem, up to $1,600.0 million principal amount of its 11.00% senior notes due December 1, 2024.

The Notes are being offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and outside the United States, only to non-U.S. investors pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act.

The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from registration requirements or a transaction not subject to the registration requirements of the Securities Act or any state securities laws.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes or any other securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
