Borr Drilling’s ATM Program

Baker Botts advised Clarksons Platou Securities, Inc. as sales agent on the deal.

Borr Drilling Limited (NYSE and OSE: BORR) announced that it has established an “at-the-market program” and entered into an Equity Distribution Agreement with Clarksons Platou Securities, Inc., as sales agent, under which we may offer and sell from time to time up to $40 million of our common shares to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

In accordance with the terms of the Equity Distribution Agreement, the Company may offer and sell its common shares at any time and from time to time through Clarksons Platou Securities, Inc. as its sales agent. The sales agent may act as an agent on our behalf or purchase shares of our common shares as a principal.  Sales of our common shares, if any, may be made in ordinary brokers’ transactions through the New York Stock Exchange at market prices or in block transactions or as otherwise agreed between the Company and Clarksons Platou Securities, Inc. as sales agent. The securities may be sold at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to such prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices. No common shares will be offered or sold on Oslo Stock Exchange.

The Board does not currently anticipate to sell any shares under the ATM program at this point in time, however the facility has been set up to provide the Company with flexibility going forward, including as markets improve.

The Company plans to use the proceeds from these sales, if any, for general corporate purposes, which may include, among other things, payments on our debt obligations, which may include in the future payments to our creditors in return for potential concessions or extensions of current facilities, capital expenditures, including costs in connection with activations and re-activations of rigs being brought into operations, or funding of our working capital.
