Effective April 7, 2021, the Organizational Regulations (as amended, the “Organizational Regulations”) of Transocean Ltd. (the “Company”) were amended by the Company’s Board of Directors to reflect the updated name of the Board’s Health, Safety, Environment and Sustainability Committee (formerly the Health, Safety and Environment Committee), among other technical updates.

On April 6, 2021, the Company’s Articles of Association were amended (as amended, the “Articles of Association”) to reflect changes in the Company’s total issued share capital resulting from the issuance of 46 million Company shares (the “Treasury Shares”) to one of the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries at par value for a total consideration of CHF 4,600,000. The issuance of the Treasury Shares is exempt pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, which exempts transactions by an issuer not involving a public offering. Our Articles of Association now reflect a share capital of CHF 68,567,616.50 divided into 685,676,165 fully paid registered shares.

The foregoing descriptions of the Organizational Regulations and Articles of Association do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Organizational Regulations and Articles of Association, respectively, copies of which are filed herewith as Exhibit 3.1 and Exhibit 3.2, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.
