SEADRILL

Class action lawsuits have been filed against the Norwegian offshore driller on behalf of purchasers of Seadrill’s U.S.-listed shares, The Rosen Law Firm, Robbins Geller Rudman & Down LLP and Scott+Scott said in separate statements late on Friday.

In August, Seadrill said it had the ability to maintain its dividend well into 2016 even if the rig market failed to make a significant recovery, but on Nov 26 Seadrill said it would suspend dividend payments as the offshore drilling market continued to sour with low oil prices deepening its troubles.

Seadrill’s shares fell sharply following the Nov 26 announcement.

The company did not respond to requests for comments on Monday. Separately, the firm told financial daily Dagens Naeringsliv it did not whish to comment on the lawsuits.
