All Three Leading Independent Proxy Advisory Firms - Glass Lewis, ISS and Egan-Jones - Recommend Rowan Shareholders Vote "FOR" the Combination with Ensco
Rowan Urges Shareholders to Vote "FOR" the Ensco Transaction Today

HOUSTON, Feb. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Rowan Companies plc ("Rowan" or the "Company") (NYSE: RDC) today announced that, in a report issued on February 8, 2019, Glass Lewis & Co. ("Glass Lewis"), one of the world's leading independent proxy advisory firms, joined Institutional Shareholder Services, Inc. ("ISS") and Egan-Jones Proxy Services ("Egan-Jones") in recommending that Rowan shareholders vote "FOR" the Company's pending combination with Ensco plc (NYSE: ESV) ("Ensco").

As previously announced, Rowan and Ensco amended the Transaction Agreement between the two companies such that, upon closing of the transaction, Rowan shareholders will receive 2.750 shares of Ensco for each share of Rowan they own. All other terms and conditions of the agreement remain the same.

Commenting on the recommendations, Rowan issued the following statement:

We are pleased that all three proxy advisory firms recognize the compelling rationale behind our proposed combination with Ensco. Notably, in its report, Glass Lewis highlighted that the transaction would provide Rowan shareholders with greater upside potential in a recovery scenario as well as a margin of safety should challenging conditions persist.

The recommendations of ISS, Glass Lewis and Egan-Jones in support of this amended transaction at a 2.750 exchange ratio further reinforces the significant positive feedback we have received from many investors. All three firms recognize that combining with Ensco maximizes value for all Rowan shareholders and represents the best path forward for the Company. With substantial synergies, as well as enhanced scale, backlog and financial flexibility, this combination creates a premiere offshore service provider poised to succeed in any operating environment.

We look forward to completing this transaction during the first half of the year so that we can begin integrating the two companies, achieving the substantial synergies we have identified, and strengthening the combined company's balance sheet. We are confident this transaction will create meaningful value for shareholders.

In connection with the amended transaction agreement, Odey Asset Management LLP, one of Rowan's largest shareholders as of the most recent regulatory filings, has pledged its support to Ensco by entering into an irrevocable voting agreement for the firm's holdings of approximately 9% of Rowan's shares outstanding.

Rowan urges all shareholders to submit a proxy or voting instruction card for each of Rowan's Court and General Meetings as soon as possible. The BLUE form of proxy corresponds to Rowan's Court Meeting and the YELLOW form of proxy corresponds to Rowan's General Meeting. Rowan's Court and General Meetings to approve resolutions relating to the transaction with Ensco will occur on February 21, 2019.

Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC is serving as financial advisor and Kirkland & Ellis LLP is serving as legal advisor to the Company.

Rowan shareholders who have questions or need assistance voting their shares should contact Rowan's proxy solicitor, MacKenzie Partners, Inc., by calling toll-free at (800) 322-2885 (from the U.S. and Canada) or (212) 929-5500 (call collect from other locations) or via email at proxy@mackenziepartners.com.
