NADL - North Atlantic Drilling Ltd. Files For Initial Public Offering

HAMILTON, Bermuda, Nov. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

North Atlantic Drilling Ltd. (NADL, or
the Company) announced today that it has filed its first amended registration
statements with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in
connection with its initial public offering and concurrent offer to exchange
previously issued unregistered common shares, other than the common shares owned
by affiliates of NADL, for common shares that have been registered under the
Securities Act of 1933, as amended.  These filings follow NADL's announcement on
October 11, 2013 that it would proceed with an independent listing of its shares
on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). The initial public offering of NADL's
common shares and concurrent exchange offer are expected to commence after the
SEC completes its review process. The amended registration statements on Form F-
1 (File No. 333-185394) and Form F-4 (File No. 333-185395) can be publicly
accessed through the EDGAR system available at http://www.sec.gov. NADL has
applied to list its common shares on the NYSE under the symbol "NADL".

Morgan Stanley will act as the Global Coordinator and Lead Bookrunner for the
initial public offering. The offering of the common shares will be made only by
means of a prospectus. A written prospectus meeting the requirements of Section
10 of the Securities Act of 1933 will be made available when the SEC has
completed its review process.

Registration statements relating to these securities have been filed with the
SEC but have not yet become effective. The securities may not be sold, nor may
offers to buy be accepted, prior to the time the registration statements become
effective. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or the
solicitation of an offer to buy any securities issuable pursuant to the
registration statements, nor will there be any sale of these securities in any
state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be
unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any
such state or jurisdiction.
