Noble Corporation Board Schedules Previously Approved Dividend Payment To Shareholders

Stocks in this article: NE





ZUG, Switzerland, Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Noble Corporation (NYSE: NE) today reported that the Company's Board has set the record and payment dates for the third installment of a payment to shareholders in the form of a dividend funded from the Company's capital contribution reserve.  This installment payment will be in the amount of USD $0.13 per share.  The ex-dividend date for this payment is expected to be February 7, 2013, with a record date of February 11, 2013 and a payment date of February 21, 2013.  

An aggregate dividend in the amount of USD $0.52 per share, to be paid in four quarterly installments of USD $0.13 per share, was previously approved by shareholders at the Company's Annual General Meeting on April 27, 2012. This payment is the third of these installments, with the final installment expected to be paid in May 2013.  We expect that this dividend will be treated as a qualified dividend for purposes of U.S. taxes.
