Weatherford International announced that the shareholders of its predecessor company Weatherford International, formed in Switzerland, have approved changing its place of incorporation from Switzerland to Ireland. This action was taken at an Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders held yesterday at which the proposal was overwhelmingly approved by over 98% of the shareholders voting. Weatherford Switzerland merged into Weatherford Ireland, which has now become the parent of the Weatherford International group of companies. With the completion of the merger mentioned above, the parent company of the Weatherford International group of companies continues to be subject to SEC reporting requirements as well as the rules of the NYSE, and its ordinary shares will be exclusively listed on the NYSE under the symbol "WFT." As previously announced, Weatherford's shares have been delisted from the NYSE Euronext Paris, and Weatherford also expects to delist its shares from the SIX Swiss Exchange on or about June 19.

16:18 EDTWFTWeatherford recommends rejection of 'Mini-Tender' offer by TRC Capital
Weatherford International has received notification of an unsolicited "mini-tender" offer by TRC Capital Corporation to purchase up to 5M shares, or approximately 0.65%, of the outstanding ordinary shares of Weatherford at $21.15 per share. TRC Capital's offer is approximately 4.3% below Weatherford's closing price of $22.10 on August 18, the day before the offer commenced. Weatherford does not endorse this unsolicited mini-tender offer and recommends that shareholders reject the offer. Weatherford recommends that shareholders who have not responded to TRC Capital reject the offer by taking no action because the offer is at a price below the current market price for Weatherford shares and is subject to numerous conditions, including any decrease in the market price of Weatherford's shares and the ability of TRC Capital to obtain financing on satisfactory terms. Weatherford further recommends that shareholders who have already tendered shares in TRC Capital's offer withdraw their shares by providing the written notice described in the offering documents prior to the time of expiration stated in the offer, which is on Thursday, September 18.
