Rowan Updates Timing Of Change In Corporate Structure

Rowan Companies, Inc. is a major provider of global offshore contract drilling services with a leading position in high-specification jack-up rigs. The Company's fleet of 31 jack-up rigs is located worldwide, including the Middle East, the North Sea, Trinidad, Southeast Asia and the Gulf of Mexico. Rowan will enter the ultra-deepwater market with three high-specification drillships expected to be delivered starting in late 2013. Rowan's stock is traded on the NYSE under the symbol "RDC". For more information on Rowan, please visit www.rowancompanies.com.  

This press release contains forward looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including, without limitation, statements about the proposed change in corporate structure as well as statements as to the expectations, beliefs and future expected financial performance of the Company that are based on current expectations and are subject to certain risks, trends and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected by the Company. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include oil and natural gas prices, the level of offshore expenditures by energy companies, energy demand, the general economy, including inflation, weather conditions in the Company's principal operating areas and environmental and other laws and regulations, including changes in tax laws, whether our stockholders approve the merger (and related transactions), our ability to implement a Class A Share capital structure and whether we achieve the benefits we expect from the proposed change in our corporate structure. Other relevant factors have been and will be disclosed in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  

Rowan UK has filed with the SEC a registration statement on Form S-4, which contains a definitive proxy statement/prospectus in connection with the proposed merger, and each of Rowan and Rowan UK may be filing other relevant materials with the SEC in connection with the transaction. The Company urges its stockholders – including participants in its equity based incentive compensation plans — and investors to read carefully the proxy statement/prospectus (and any other document that Rowan or Rowan UK subsequently files with the SEC) before making any voting or investment decision about the proposed merger, because they contain important information about Rowan, Rowan UK and the proposed merger and related transactions. Stockholders and investors may obtain these documents, as well as other filings containing information about Rowan and Rowan UK, for free at the SEC's website, www.sec.gov, and Rowan's website, www.rowancompanies.com, under the "Investor Relations" heading by accessing the "SEC filings" link.  

Rowan, Rowan UK and their directors and executive officers and certain other members of management and employees, as well as Innisfree M&A Incorporated (Rowan's proxy solicitor), may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies in respect of the proposed change in corporate structure. Information about the directors and executive officers of Rowan and their ownership in Rowan is included in the registration statement filed with the SEC and the documents and information incorporated by reference therein. Other information regarding the participants in the proxy solicitation and a description of their direct and indirect interests, by security holdings or otherwise, is contained in the definitive proxy statement/prospectus and other relevant materials filed with the SEC. You can obtain free copies of the documents by accessing the SEC's and our website as described above.
