The Company's authorised share capital is $900 million comprising 450 million common shares with a nominal, or par, value of $2 each. As a consequence of the combination, Subsea 7 S.A. has issued 156,839,759 new shares in Subsea 7 S.A. based on 147,267,380 shares issued and outstanding in Subsea 7 Inc. at completion.

A further 583,000 shares are held indirectly in an employee benefit trust to support the 2009 Long-Term Incentive Plan.

Kristian Siem, Chairman, Subsea 7 S.A. said: "When we announced the intention to combine both organisations we said this was an excellent strategic fit, with industry fundamentals strongly supporting the logic of the combination. Now that we have closed I strongly believe that the logic behind the combination is correct. The new Subsea 7 is well positioned to deliver enhanced long-term value for our clients, our people and our shareholders."

Jean Cahuzac, Chief Executive Officer, Subsea 7 S.A. said: "This is a very exciting day for our shareholders, our clients and our people. The creation of a global leader in seabed-to-surface engineering, construction and services contractor to the offshore energy industry worldwide will allow us to secure and deliver offshore projects of the size and complexity that we expect will emerge in the coming decade.

Subsea 7 S.A. will benefit from the value created by the combination of our people, our expertise and our highly complementary fleet, supported by a larger capital base and the synergies expected to result from the combination. Our leadership position and global footprint will give us opportunities to grow faster than either Acergy S.A. or Subsea 7 Inc. could have achieved on their own."
