SeaDrill Limited (SDRL)



Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In SeaDrill Limited (SDRL) To Contact The Firm

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, notifies investors in SeaDrill Limited (“SeaDrill” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SDRL) of the February 3, 2015 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against SeaDrill and certain executives and directors. 

A complaint has been filed in the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons who purchased SeaDrill American Depository Receipts (“ADRs”) from July 10, 2014 through November 25, 2014, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning its business, operations, and prospects.

Specifically, the action alleges that during the Class Period, SeaDrill made false and/or misleading statements that its backlog and strong balance sheet were sufficient to support paying a $4 annual dividend through 2016.

On November 26, 2014, the Company announced that it was indefinitely suspending its dividend.

Following this news, the price of SeaDrill’s stock declined by $4.72, or nearly 23%, to close at $15.99 on November 26, 2014.
