Vantage Drilling Company received a notice dated August 31, 2015 from Petrobras America, Inc. (PAI) and Petrobras Venezuela Investments & Services B.V. (PVIS) stating that PAI and PVIS were terminating the Agreement for the Provision of Services Contract for the Titanium Explorer dated February 4, 2009 (the "Drilling Contract"), between PVIS and Vantage Deepwater Drilling Company, a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of Vantage, and which had been novated to PAI. The Notice alleges that Vantage has breached its obligations under the Drilling Contract. The Notice does not provide any explanation as to the facts and conduct that constitute a breach by Vantage of its obligations under the Drilling Contract.

Vantage strongly disagrees with the allegations of contractual breaches made by PAI and PVIS in the Notice. Vantage has filed for arbitration to challenge the assertions made in the Notice and to assert that the Notice is a wrongful attempt to terminate the Drilling Contract. Vantage believes that it is in compliance with all of its obligations under the Drilling Contract.
