Prior to the completion of the acquisition, Smith and Schlumberger operated M-I SWACO, a drilling fluids joint
venture that was 40% owned by Schlumberger and 60% owned by Smith. Effective at the closing of the transaction, M-I
SWACO became 100% owned by Schlumberger. As a result of obtaining control of this joint venture, Schlumberger was
required under generally accepted accounting principles to remeasure its previously held equity interest in the joint
venture at its acquisition-date fair value and recognize the resulting pretax gain of $1.3 billion ($1.2 billion after-tax) in
earnings. This gain is classified as

On November 15, 2012, Cameron International Corporation (“Cameron”) and Schlumberger announced that they
had entered into an agreement with respect to the creation of OneSubsea, a joint venture to manufacture and develop
products, systems and services for the subsea oil and gas market. Schlumberger will own 40% of OneSubsea. The
transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions and is expected to close by the
second quarter of 2013. Under the terms of the formation agreement, Cameron and Schlumberger will each contribute
all of their respective subsea businesses to the joint venture and Schlumberger will make a $600 million cash payment
to Cameron. In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, upon the closing of this transaction,
Schlumberger will recognize a gain as a result of the deconsolidation of its subsea business. This pretax gain will be
equal to the difference between the fair value of the Schlumberger subsea businesses and their carrying value at the
time of closing and is currently estimated to be in excess of $1.2 billion.
