Odfjell Drilling Ltd: Supreme Court verdict


Odfjell Drilling has received a Supreme Court verdict ruling in favour of Odfjell Rig Ltd for tax assessment for the years 2009 - 2011.

Odfjell Rig Ltd. disputed the Norwegian Tax Authority's view that Odfjell Rig Ltd. is taxable in Norway for its participation in Deep Sea Drilling Company II KS.  Odfjell Rig Ltd. appealed the case to the Supreme Court.

The estimated effect of the verdict on Odfjell Drilling's consolidated profit statement in 2015 is a reversal of booked tax expenses of NOK 400 million plus interest and a corresponding positive equity effect.
