New Bank Facility established

Reference is made to Songa Offshore SE's ("the Company") press release sent out on 16 August 2010, regarding the new committed bank facility.  The Company is pleased to announce that the documentation is now finalized and the Loan Agreement has been signed by all parties.  Drawdown on the facility has taken place today. The new facility is in the amount of USD 532 million, split into a term loan of USD 368 million and a revolving credit facility of USD 164 million.  The new facility is a 5 year loan with 20 equal installments. This step completes the refinancing of the Company and the new bank facility will reduce the repayment commitments going forward.   Seen in combination with the sale of the drillship Songa Saturn, the Company is now in a situation with a comfortable cash balance and where the net debt is reduced to approximately USD 310 million.  The mentioned revolving credit facility is undrawn for the time being.  The Company should therefore be well positioned to finance its investment in the deep water segment through the investment in Deepwater Driller Ltd, and to further look for other growth opportunities.
