Schlumberger, NOV Complete Wilson Transaction

Schlumberger Limited has completed the sale of its Wilson distribution business to National Oilwell Varco, Inc.

Terms of the all-cash transaction, which remains subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approval, were not disclosed.

Founded in 1921, Wilson is a leading distributor of pipe, valves and fittings as well as mill, tool and safety products and services to the international energy business and to other industrial customers. The company manages a distribution business of approximately 200 sales and operations locations across the United States with a growing presence in other key international geographies. Wilson employs approximately 2,500 employees as a standalone Schlumberger business unit.

Additionally, Schlumberger has committed to divest the remaining portion of its distribution business by agreeing to support NOV’s previously announced proposed acquisition of all outstanding shares of CE Franklin Ltd.  for CAD$12.75 in cash per share. Schlumberger owns 9,729,582 common shares of CE Franklin, or approximately 56% of CE Franklin’s outstanding common shares.
