SDLP - Amended Term Loan B Credit Agreement

London, United Kingdom, February 13, 2018 - Seadrill Partners LLC ("SDLP" or "the Company") announces that it has filed a 6-K containing an amended Term Loan B ("TLB") credit agreement reflecting an agreement reached with the required majority of TLB lenders to waive the leverage covenant until the maturity of the TLB in February 2021. 

In connection with entering into the amended TLB credit agreement, we have agreed to several terms, including but not limited to, increasing the applicable margin by 3%, a par prepayment contingent on the successful outcome of certain ongoing litigation, adding the West Vencedor as collateral and certain amendments relating to cash movements outside of the TLB collateral group.

The required majority of TLB lenders representing greater than 50% of amounts outstanding has been reached and documentation is agreed.  This agreement will become effective upon receiving consent from secured lending banks representing greater than 66 2/3% of amounts outstanding in each of the Company's three secured bank facilities and after satisfying customary closing conditions.  The secured lending bank credit approval process is well advanced and we expect it to conclude in the coming weeks.
