Valaris, the world’s largest offshore drilling firm, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy with a plan to reportedly reduce its debt by $6.5 billion.
The company, formed last year through the merger of Ensco and Rowan, filed for Chapter 11 in the US in order to implement a new agreement with 50% of lenders that will “reduce its debt load substantially, support continued operations during the lower demand environment and provide a robust financial platform” for the market recovery.
According to financial reports, first half results, ending June 30, showed huge pre-tax losses of $4.28billion, with total long-term debt $6.6bn. The company blames the substantial downturn in the energy sector, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, for the restructuring.
The firm reportedly announced in April it would cut up to 330 jobs as a result of the downturn, but has not revealed any further planned cuts.
According to MarketWatch today, shares of Valaris are down -97.29% YTD.
