Such statements are subject to numerous risks, uncertainties and assumptions that may cause actual results to vary materially from those indicated, including:
our ability to complete the combination with Rowan;
failure, difficulties and delays in meeting conditions required for closing set forth in the Rowan transaction agreement;
our ability to obtain requisite regulatory, court and shareholder approval and satisfy the other conditions to the consummation of the transaction with Rowan;
the potential impact of the announcement or implementation of the transaction with Rowan on relationships, including with employees, suppliers, customers, competitors, lenders and credit rating agencies;
our ability to successfully integrate Rowan's operations and employees and to realize synergies and cost savings;
our ability to successfully integrate the business, operations and employees of Atwood Oceanics, Inc. ("Atwood") and to realize synergies and cost savings in connection with our acquisition of Atwood;
changes in future levels of drilling activity and capital expenditures by our customers, whether as a result of global capital markets and liquidity, prices of oil and natural gas or otherwise, which may cause us to idle or stack additional rigs;
changes in worldwide rig supply and demand, competition or technology, including as a result of delivery of newbuild drilling rigs;
downtime and other risks associated with offshore rig operations, including rig or equipment failure, damage and other unplanned repairs, the limited availability of transport vessels, hazards, self-imposed drilling limitations and other delays due to severe storms and hurricanes and the limited availability or high cost of insurance coverage for certain offshore perils, such as hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico or associated removal of wreckage or debris;
governmental action, terrorism, piracy, military action and political and economic uncertainties, including uncertainty or instability resulting from civil unrest, political demonstrations, mass strikes, or an escalation or additional outbreak of armed hostilities or other crises in oil or natural gas producing areas of the Middle East, North Africa, West Africa or other geographic areas, which may result in expropriation, nationalization, confiscation or deprivation of our assets or suspension and/or termination of contracts based on force majeure events;

1



risks inherent to shipyard rig construction, repair, modification or upgrades, unexpected delays in equipment delivery, engineering, design or commissioning issues following delivery, or changes in the commencement, completion or service dates;
possible cancellation, suspension, renegotiation or termination (with or without cause) of drilling contracts as a result of general and industry-specific economic conditions, mechanical difficulties, performance or other reasons;
our ability to enter into, and the terms of, future drilling contracts, including contracts for our newbuild units and acquired rigs, for rigs currently idled and for rigs whose contracts are expiring;
any failure to execute definitive contracts following announcements of letters of intent, letters of award or other expected work commitments;
the outcome of litigation, legal proceedings, investigations or other claims or contract disputes, including any inability to collect receivables or resolve significant contractual or day rate disputes, any renegotiation, nullification, cancellation or breach of contracts with customers or other parties and any failure to execute definitive contracts following announcements of letters of intent;
governmental regulatory, legislative and permitting requirements affecting drilling operations, including limitations on drilling locations (such as the Gulf of Mexico during hurricane season);
new and future regulatory, legislative or permitting requirements, future lease sales, changes in laws, rules and regulations that have or may impose increased financial responsibility, additional oil spill abatement contingency plan capability requirements and other governmental actions that may result in claims of force majeure or otherwise adversely affect our existing drilling contracts, operations or financial results;
our ability to attract and retain skilled personnel on commercially reasonable terms, whether due to labor regulations, unionization or otherwise;
environmental or other liabilities, risks, damages or losses, whether related to storms or hurricanes (including wreckage or debris removal), collisions, groundings, blowouts, fires, explosions, other accidents, terrorism or otherwise, for which insurance coverage and contractual indemnities may be insufficient, unenforceable or otherwise unavailable;
our ability to obtain financing, service our indebtedness and pursue other business opportunities may be limited by our debt levels, debt agreement restrictions and the credit ratings assigned to our debt by independent credit rating agencies;
the adequacy of sources of liquidity for us and our customers;
tax matters, including our effective tax rates, tax positions, results of audits, changes in tax laws, treaties and regulations, tax assessments and liabilities for taxes;
delays in contract commencement dates or the cancellation of drilling programs by operators;
the occurrence of cybersecurity incidents, attacks or other breaches to our information technology systems;
adverse changes in foreign currency exchange rates, including their effect on the fair value measurement of our derivative instruments; and
potential long-lived asset impairments.

Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in Part I and "Item 1A. Risk Factors" in Part II of this report and "Item 1A.

PART I - FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Item 1.Financial Statements

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 
The Board of Directors and Shareholders
Ensco plc:
 
Results of Review of Interim Financial Information
We have reviewed the condensed consolidated balance sheet of Ensco plc and subsidiaries (the Company) as of September 30, 2018, the related condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, the related condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, and the related notes (collectively, the consolidated interim financial information). Based on our reviews, we are not aware of any material modifications that should be made to the consolidated interim financial information for it to be in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.
We have previously audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB), the consolidated balance sheet of the Company as of December 31, 2017, and the related consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive income (loss), and cash flows for the year then ended (not presented herein); and in our report dated February 27, 2018, we expressed an unqualified opinion on those consolidated financial statements. In our opinion, the information set forth in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2017, is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the consolidated balance sheet from which it has been derived.
Basis for Review Results
This consolidated interim financial information is the responsibility of the Company’s management. We are a public accounting firm registered with the PCAOB and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.
We conducted our reviews in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. A review of consolidated interim financial information consists principally of applying analytical procedures and making inquiries of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters. It is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB, the objective of which is the expression of an opinion regarding the financial statements taken as a whole. Accordingly, we do not express such an opinion.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

Note 1 -Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
 
We prepared the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements of Ensco plc and subsidiaries (the "Company," "Ensco," "our," "we" or "us") in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") included in the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. The financial information included in this report is unaudited but, in our opinion, includes all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) that are necessary for a fair presentation of our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented. The December 31, 2017 condensed consolidated balance sheet data were derived from our 2017 audited consolidated financial statements, but do not include all disclosures required by GAAP. The preparation of our condensed consolidated financial statements requires us to make certain estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the related revenues and expenses and disclosures of gain and loss contingencies as of the date of the financial statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
The financial data for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 included herein have been subjected to a limited review by KPMG LLP, our independent registered public accounting firm. The accompanying independent registered public accounting firm's review report is not a report within the meaning of Sections 7 and 11 of the Securities Act, and the independent registered public accounting firm's liability under Section 11 does not extend to it.
 
Results of operations for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that will be realized for the year ending December 31, 2018.  We recommend these condensed consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, filed with the SEC on February 27, 2018, and our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on April 26, 2018 and July 26, 2018.

Proposed Rowan Transaction

On October 7, 2018, Ensco plc and Rowan Companies plc ("Rowan") entered into an agreement that provides for the combination of the two companies (the "Transaction Agreement"). Ensco has agreed to acquire the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Rowan in an all-stock transaction (the "Transaction") by way of a scheme of arrangement to be undertaken by Rowan under Part 26 of the UK Companies Act 2006.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Transaction Agreement, each Class A ordinary share of Rowan will be converted into the right to receive 2.215 Class A ordinary shares of Ensco plc. We estimate the total consideration to be delivered in the Transaction to be approximately $2.3 billion, consisting of approximately 283 million of our shares based on the closing price of $8.11 on October 22, 2018. The value of the Transaction consideration will fluctuate until the closing date based on changes in the price of our shares and the number of shares of Rowan common stock outstanding.

The completion of the Transaction is subject to various closing conditions, including, among others, (i) the receipt of certain approvals from the Rowan and Ensco shareholders, including approval of the allotment and issuance of the Transaction consideration by Ensco's shareholders, (ii) the sanction of the Transaction by the High Court of Justice of England and Wales, (iii) the receipt of certain required regulatory approvals or elapse of certain review periods with respect thereto, including those in the United States, United Kingdom and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, (iv) the absence of legal restraints prohibiting or restraining the Transaction and (v) the absence of any law or order reasonably expected to result in the dissolution of the Saudi Aramco Offshore Drilling Company, Rowan’s joint venture with Saudi Aramco (the “ARO JV”), or the sale, disposition, forfeiture or nationalization of Rowan’s interest in the

ARO JV. The Transaction is expected to close during the first half of 2019, subject to satisfaction of all conditions to closing.

New Accounting Pronouncements

In August 2018, the FASB issued Update 2018-15, Intangibles—Goodwill and Other—Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That is a Service Contract ("Update 2018-15"), which aligns the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract with the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use software (and hosting arrangements that included an internal-use software license). This update is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020 and interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the effect that Update 2018-15 will have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

In February 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the "FASB") issued Update 2018-02, Income Statement - Reporting Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects From Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income ("Update 2018-02"), which allows for a reclassification from accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI) to retained earnings for stranded tax effects resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This update is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 and interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. We adopted Update 2018-02 effective January 1, 2018. As a result, we reclassified a total of $800,000 in tax effects from AOCI to opening retained earnings.

In August 2017, the FASB issued Update 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities ("Update 2017-12"), which will make more hedging strategies eligible for hedge accounting. It also amends presentation and disclosure requirements and changes how companies assess effectiveness. This update is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the effect that Update 2017-12 will have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

During 2016, the FASB issued Update 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) ("Update 2016-02"), which requires an entity to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and to disclose key qualitative and quantitative information about the entity's leasing arrangements. This update is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. During our evaluation of Update 2016-02, we concluded that our drilling contracts contain a lease component. In July 2018, the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842), Target Improvements, which (1) provides for a new transition method whereby entities may elect to adopt the Update using a prospective with cumulative catch-up approach and (2) provides lessors with a practical expedient, by class of underlying asset, to not separate lease and non-lease components when the non-lease component is the predominant element of the combined component. The lessor practical expedient is limited to circumstances in which the non-lease component otherwise would be accounted for under Topic 606 (discussed below). We are currently evaluating the effect these Updates will have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures. With respect to leases whereby we are the lessee, we expect to recognize upon adoption on January 1, 2019 lease liabilities and offsetting "right of use" assets ranging from approximately $55 million to $75 million.


11



During 2014, the FASB issued Update 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) ("Update 2014-09"), which requires entities to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. Update 2014-09 is effective for annual and interim periods for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017. We adopted Update 2014-09 effective January 1, 2018, using the modified retrospective approach. Only customer contracts that were not completed as of the effective adoption date were evaluated under the transition guidance to determine if a cumulative catch-up adjustment to retained earnings was warranted. Revenues recognized in prior years for customer contracts that expired prior to the effective adoption date continue to be reported under the previous revenue recognition guidance. Our adoption of Update 2014-09 did not result in a cumulative effect on retained earnings and no adjustments were made to prior periods. While Update 2014-09 requires additional disclosure regarding revenues recognized from customer contracts, our adoption did not have a material impact on the recognition of current or prior period revenues as compared to previous guidance nor do we expect a material impact to our pattern of revenue recognition in future periods. See "Note 2 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers" for additional information.
Note 2 -Revenue from Contracts with Customers
 
We provide drilling services on a day rate contract basis. Under day rate contracts, we provide an integrated service that includes the provision of a drilling rig and rig crews for which we receive a daily rate that may vary between the full rate and zero rate throughout the duration of the contractual term, depending on the operations of the rig. We also may receive lump-sum fees or similar compensation for the mobilization, demobilization and capital upgrades of our rigs. Our customers bear substantially all of the costs of constructing the well and supporting drilling operations, as well as the economic risk relative to the success of the well.

Our integrated drilling service provided under each drilling contract is a single performance obligation satisfied over time and comprised of a series of distinct time increments, or service periods. Total revenue is determined for each individual drilling contract by estimating both fixed and variable consideration expected to be earned over the contract term. Fixed consideration generally relates to activities such as mobilization, demobilization and capital upgrades of our rigs that are not distinct within the context of our contracts and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the contract term. Variable consideration generally relates to distinct service periods during the contract term and is recognized in the period when the services are performed.

The amount estimated for variable consideration is only recognized as revenue to the extent that it is probable that a significant reversal will not occur during the contract term. We have applied the optional exemption afforded in Update 2014-09 and have not disclosed the variable consideration related to our estimated future day rate revenues. The remaining duration of our drilling contracts based on those in place as of September 30, 2018 was between approximately one month and four years.

Day Rate Drilling Revenue

Our drilling contracts provide for payment on a day rate basis and include a rate schedule with higher rates for periods when the drilling unit is operating and lower rates or zero rates for periods when drilling operations are interrupted or restricted. The day rate invoiced to the customer is determined based on the varying rates applicable to specific activities performed on an hourly basis. Day rate consideration is allocated to the distinct hourly increment to which it relates within the contract term and is generally recognized consistent with the contractual rate invoiced for the services provided during the respective period. Invoices are typically issued to our customers on a monthly basis and payment terms on customer invoices typically range from 30 to 45 days.

Certain of our contracts contain performance incentives whereby we may earn a bonus based on pre-established performance criteria. Such incentives are generally based on our performance over individual monthly time periods or individual wells. Consideration related to performance bonus is generally recognized in the specific time period to which the performance criteria was attributed.


12



We may receive termination fees if certain drilling contracts are terminated by the customer prior to the end of the contractual term. Such compensation is recognized as revenue when our performance obligation is satisfied, the termination fee can be reasonably measured and collection is probable.
 
Mobilization / Demobilization Revenue

In connection with certain contracts, we receive lump-sum fees or similar compensation for the mobilization of equipment and personnel prior to the commencement of drilling services or the demobilization of equipment and personnel upon contract completion. Fees received for the mobilization or demobilization of equipment and personnel are included in operating revenues. The costs incurred in connection with the mobilization and demobilization of equipment and personnel are included in contract drilling expense.

Mobilization fees received prior to commencement of drilling operations are recorded as a contract liability and amortized on a straight-line basis over the contract term. Demobilization fees expected to be received upon contract completion are estimated at contract inception and recognized on a straight-line basis over the contract term. In some cases, demobilization fees may be contingent upon the occurrence or non-occurrence of a future event. In such cases, this may result in cumulative-effect adjustments to demobilization revenues upon changes in our estimates of future events during the contract term.
 
Capital Upgrade / Contract Preparation Revenue

In connection with certain contracts, we receive lump-sum fees or similar compensation for requested capital upgrades to our drilling rigs or for other contract preparation work. Fees received for requested capital upgrades and other contract preparation work are recorded as a contract liability and amortized on a straight-line basis over the contract term to operating revenues. Costs incurred for capital upgrades are capitalized and depreciated over the useful life of the asset.

Contract Assets and Liabilities

Contract assets represent amounts previously recognized as revenue but for which the right to invoice the customer is dependent upon our future performance. Once the previously recognized revenue is invoiced, the corresponding contract asset, or a portion thereof, is transferred to accounts receivable. Contract liabilities generally represent fees received for mobilization or capital upgrades.
    
Contract assets and liabilities are presented net on our condensed consolidated balance sheet on a contract-by-contract basis. Current contract assets and liabilities are included in other current assets and accrued liabilities and other, respectively, and noncurrent contract assets and liabilities are included in other assets and other liabilities, respectively, on our condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Deferred Contract Costs

Costs incurred for upfront rig mobilizations and certain contract preparations are attributable to our future performance obligation under each respective drilling contract. Such costs are deferred and amortized on a straight-line basis over the contract term. Demobilization costs are recognized as incurred upon contract completion. Costs associated with the mobilization of equipment and personnel to more promising market areas without contracts are expensed as incurred. Deferred contract costs were included in other current assets and other assets on our condensed consolidated balance sheets and totaled $29.0 million and $40.6 million as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively. During the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018, amortization of such costs totaled $10.1 million and $26.0 million, respectively. During the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2017, amortization of such costs totaled $7.1 million and $21.8 million, respectively.

Deferred Certification Costs

We must obtain certifications from various regulatory bodies in order to operate our drilling rigs and must maintain such certifications through periodic inspections and surveys. The costs incurred in connection with maintaining such certifications, including inspections, tests, surveys and drydock, as well as remedial structural work and other compliance costs, are deferred and amortized on a straight-line basis over the corresponding certification periods. Deferred regulatory certification and compliance costs were included in other current assets and other assets on our condensed consolidated balance sheets and totaled $13.0 million and $15.3 million as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively. During the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018, amortization of such costs totaled $3.3 million and $9.6 million, respectively. During the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2017, amortization of such costs totaled $3.3 million and $9.1 million, respectively.    

Future Amortization of Contract Liabilities and Deferred Costs

Our contract liabilities and deferred costs are amortized on a straight-line basis over the contract term or corresponding certification period to operating revenues and contract drilling expense, respectively.

Note 3 -Acquisition of Atwood

On October 6, 2017 (the "Merger Date"), we completed a merger transaction (the "Merger") with Atwood Oceanics, Inc. ("Atwood") and Echo Merger Sub, LLC, our wholly-owned subsidiary. Assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the Merger were recorded at their estimated fair values as of the Merger Date under the acquisition method of accounting. When the fair value of the net assets acquired exceeds the consideration transferred in an acquisition, the difference is recorded as a bargain purchase gain in the period in which the transaction occurs. As of September 30, 2018, we have completed our fair value assessments of assets acquired and liabilities assumed.

The measurement period adjustments reflect changes in the estimated fair values of certain assets and liabilities, primarily related to inventory, capital equipment and other liabilities. The measurement period adjustments were recorded to reflect new information obtained about facts and circumstances existing as of the Merger Date and did not result from subsequent intervening events. The adjustments recorded resulted in a $6.5 million decrease and a $1.8 million increase to bargain purchase gain during the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018, respectively, and are included in other, net, in our condensed consolidated statements of operations.
(2)  
Upon closing of the Merger, we utilized acquired cash of $445.4 million and cash on hand from the liquidation of short-term investments to repay Atwood's debt and accrued interest of $1.3 billion.
(3) Gross contractual amounts receivable totaled $64.7 million as of the Merger Date.


15



Bargain Purchase Gain

The fair values assigned to assets acquired net of liabilities assumed exceeded the consideration transferred, resulting in a bargain purchase gain primarily due to depressed offshore drilling company valuations. Market capitalizations across the offshore drilling industry declined significantly since mid-2014 due to the decline in commodity prices and the related imbalance of supply and demand for drilling rigs. The resulting bargain purchase gain was further driven by the decline in our share price from $6.70 to $5.83 between the last trading day prior to the announcement of the Merger and the Merger Date.

Intangible Assets and Liabilities

We recorded intangible assets totaling $30.1 million representing the estimated fair value of Atwood's firm drilling contracts in place at the Merger Date with favorable contract terms compared to then-market day rates for comparable drilling rigs.

Operating revenues were net of $2.8 million and $8.6 million of asset amortization during the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018, respectively. The remaining balance of $5.4 million was included in other assets on our condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2018. This balance will be amortized to operating revenues over the remaining drilling contract term on a straight-line basis totaling $2.8 million and $2.6 million during the remainder of 2018 and 2019, respectively.

We recorded intangible liabilities of $60.0 million for the estimated fair value of unfavorable drillship construction contracts, which were determined by comparing the firm obligations for the remaining construction of ENSCO DS-13 and ENSCO DS-14 to the estimated current market rates for the construction of a comparable drilling rig. The liabilities will be amortized over the estimated life of ENSCO DS-13 and ENSCO DS-14 as a reduction of depreciation expense beginning on the date the rig is placed into service.

Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan Assets
 
Our supplemental executive retirement plans (the "SERP") are non-qualified plans that provide eligible employees an opportunity to defer a portion of their compensation for use after retirement. Assets held in the SERP were marketable securities measured at fair value on a recurring basis using Level 1 inputs and were included in other assets on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. The fair value measurement of assets held in the SERP was based on quoted market prices.

Derivatives
 
Our derivatives are measured at fair value on a recurring basis using Level 2 inputs. See "Note 5 - Derivative Instruments" for additional information on our derivatives, including a description of our foreign currency hedging activities and related methodologies used to manage foreign currency exchange rate risk. The fair value measurement of our derivatives was based on market prices that are generally observable for similar assets or liabilities at commonly-quoted intervals.

(1) 
The reduction in carrying value of our senior notes due 2019, 2020 and 2021 resulted from repurchases and redemptions during the first quarter 2018. See "Note 7 - Debt" for additional information.

(2)  
Our exchangeable senior notes due 2024 (the "2024 Convertible Notes") were issued with a conversion feature. The 2024 Convertible Notes were separated into their liability and equity components on our condensed consolidated balance sheet. The equity component was initially recorded to additional paid-in capital and as a debt discount that will be amortized to interest expense over the life of the instrument. Excluding the unamortized discount, the carrying value of the 2024 Convertible Notes was $835.7 million and $834.0 million as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively.

The estimated fair values of our senior notes and debentures were determined using quoted market prices, which are level 1 inputs.

The estimated fair values of our cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments, receivables, trade payables and other liabilities approximated their carrying values as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017. Our short-

17



term investments consisted of time deposits with initial maturities in excess of three months but less than one year as of each respective balance sheet date.
Note 5 -Derivative Instruments
    
Our functional currency is the U.S. dollar. As is customary in the oil and gas industry, a majority of our revenues are denominated in U.S. dollars; however, a portion of the revenues earned and expenses incurred by certain of our subsidiaries are denominated in currencies other than the U.S. dollar. These transactions are remeasured in U.S. dollars based on a combination of both current and historical exchange rates. We use foreign currency forward contracts to reduce our exposure to foreign currency exchange rate risk.
 
All derivatives were recorded on our condensed consolidated balance sheets at fair value. Derivatives subject to legally enforceable master netting agreements were not offset in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Accounting for the gains and losses resulting from changes in derivative fair value depends on the use of the derivative and whether it qualifies for hedge accounting.  Net liabilities of $8.9 million and net assets of $6.8 million associated with our foreign currency forward contracts were included on our condensed consolidated balance sheets as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively.  All of our derivative instruments mature during the next 18 months.  See "Note 4 - Fair Value Measurements" for additional information on the fair value measurement of our derivatives.

We utilize cash flow hedges to hedge forecasted foreign currency denominated transactions, primarily to reduce our exposure to foreign currency exchange rate risk associated with contract drilling expenses and capital expenditures denominated in various currencies. As of September 30, 2018, we had cash flow hedges outstanding to exchange an aggregate $187.9 million for various foreign currencies, including $79.0 million for British pounds, $57.5 million for Australian dollars, $20.7 million for euros, $14.0 million for Singapore dollars, $13.9 million for Brazilian reals and $2.8 million for other currencies.

Changes in the effective portion of cash flow hedge fair values are recorded in AOCI.  Amounts recorded in AOCI associated with cash flow hedges are subsequently reclassified into contract drilling, depreciation or interest expense as earnings are affected by the underlying hedged forecasted transaction.

(2)
Gains and losses recognized in income for ineffectiveness and amounts excluded from effectiveness testing were included in other, net, in our condensed consolidated statements of operations.

(3)
Losses on interest rate lock derivatives reclassified from AOCI into income were included in interest expense, net, in our condensed consolidated statements of operations.

(4) 
During the three-month period ended September 30, 2018, there were $800,000 of losses reclassified from AOCI into contract drilling expense and $200,000 of gains were reclassified from AOCI into depreciation expense in our condensed consolidated statement of operations. During the three-month period ended September 30, 2017, there were no net amounts reclassified from AOCI into contract drilling expense and $200,000 of gains were reclassified from AOCI into depreciation expense in our condensed consolidated statement of operations.

(5) 
During the nine-month period ended September 30, 2018, $1.8 million of gains were reclassified from AOCI into contract drilling expense and $600,000 of gains were reclassified from AOCI into depreciation expense in our condensed consolidated statement of operations. During the nine-month period ended September 30, 2017, $1.4 million of losses were reclassified from AOCI into contract drilling expense and $600,000 of gains were reclassified from AOCI into depreciation expense in our condensed consolidated statement of operations.

We have net assets and liabilities denominated in numerous foreign currencies and use various methods to manage our exposure to foreign currency exchange rate risk. We predominantly structure our drilling contracts in U.S. dollars, which significantly reduces the portion of our cash flows and assets denominated in foreign currencies. We occasionally enter into derivatives that hedge the fair value of recognized foreign currency denominated assets or liabilities but do not designate such derivatives as hedging instruments.  In these situations, a natural hedging relationship generally exists whereby changes in the fair value of the derivatives offset changes in the fair value of the underlying hedged items. As of September 30, 2018, we held derivatives not designated as hedging instruments to exchange an aggregate $153.2 million for various foreign currencies, including $89.4 million for euros, $18.8 million for Australian dollars, $11.6 million for Indonesian rupiahs, $11.6 million for British pounds, $8.6 million for Thai bahts and $13.2 million for other currencies.
     
Net gains of $2.2 million and $2.7 million associated with our derivatives not designated as hedging instruments were included in other, net, in our condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Net gains of $9.7 million and $8.9 million associated with our derivatives not designated as hedging instruments were included in other, net, in our condensed consolidated statements of operations for the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. These gains were partially offset by net foreign currency exchange losses during the respective periods.
    
As of September 30, 2018, the estimated amount of net losses associated with derivative instruments, net of tax, that would be reclassified into earnings during the next twelve months totaled $4.0 million.
Note 6 - Earnings Per Share
 
We compute basic and diluted earnings per share ("EPS") in accordance with the two-class method. Net loss attributable to Ensco used in our computations of basic and diluted EPS is adjusted to exclude net income allocated to non-vested shares granted to our employees and non-employee directors. Weighted-average shares outstanding used in our computation of diluted EPS is calculated using the treasury stock method and excludes non-vested shares.

During the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, all income attributable to noncontrolling interests was from continuing operations. The following table is a reconciliation of loss from continuing operations attributable to Ensco shares used in our basic and diluted EPS computations for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 (in millions):

Losses are not allocated to non-vested share awards. Therefore, only dividends attributable to our non-vested share awards are included for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017.

Anti-dilutive share awards totaling 1.6 million and 1.7 million were excluded from the computation of diluted EPS for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018. Anti-dilutive share awards totaling 1.3 million were excluded from the computation of diluted EPS for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2017.

We have the option to settle our 2024 Convertible Notes in cash, shares or a combination thereof for the aggregate amount due upon conversion. Our intent is to settle the principal amount of the 2024 Convertible Notes in cash upon conversion. If the conversion value exceeds the principal amount (i.e., our share price exceeds the exchange price on the date of conversion), we expect to deliver shares equal to the remainder of our conversion obligation in excess of the principal amount.

During each reporting period that our average share price exceeds the exchange price, an assumed number of shares required to settle the conversion obligation in excess of the principal amount will be included in our denominator for the computation of diluted EPS using the treasury stock method. Our average share price did not exceed the exchange price during the three-month or nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017.
Note 7 -Debt

Senior Notes

On January 26, 2018, we issued $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of unsecured 7.75% senior notes due 2026 at par (the "2026 Notes"). Interest on the 2026 Notes is payable semiannually on February 1 and August 1 of each year.

Tender Offers and Redemption

Concurrent with the issuance of the 2026 Notes in January 2018, we launched cash tender offers for up to $985.0 million aggregate principal amount of certain series of our senior notes issued by us and Pride International LLC, our wholly-owned subsidiary. The tender offers expired February 7, 2018, and we repurchased $182.6 million of our 8.50% senior notes due 2019, $256.6 million of our 6.875% senior notes due 2020 and $156.2 million of our 4.70% senior notes due 2021. Subsequently, we issued a redemption notice for the remaining outstanding $55.0 million principal amount of the 8.50% senior notes due 2019 and repurchased $71.4 million principal amount of our senior notes due 2020.

The following table sets forth the total principal amounts repurchased as a result of the tender offers, redemption and repurchase (in millions):

Maturities

Following the January 2018 debt offering, repurchases and redemption, our only debt maturities until 2024 are $122.9 million during 2020 and $113.5 million during 2021.

Revolving Credit Facility

We have a $2.0 billion senior unsecured revolving credit facility ("Credit Facility") with a syndicate of banks to be used for general corporate purposes. Our borrowing capacity is $2.0 billion through September 2019 and declines to $1.3 billion through September 2020 and to $1.2 billion through September 2022. The credit agreement governing the Credit Facility includes an accordion feature allowing us to increase the commitments expiring in September 2022 up to an aggregate amount not to exceed $1.5 billion.

Advances under the Credit Facility bear interest at Base Rate or LIBOR plus an applicable margin rate, depending on our credit ratings. We are required to pay a quarterly commitment fee on the undrawn portion of the $2.0 billion commitment, which is also based on our credit rating.

In January 2018, Moody's downgraded our senior unsecured bond credit rating from B2 to B3. The rating actions resulted in an increase to the interest rates applicable to our borrowings and the quarterly commitment fee on the undrawn portion of the $2.0 billion commitment. The applicable margin rates are 3.00% per annum for Base Rate advances and 4.00% per annum for LIBOR advances. The quarterly commitment fee is 0.75% per annum on the undrawn portion of the $2.0 billion commitment. 
    
The Credit Facility requires us to maintain a total debt to total capitalization ratio that is less than or equal to 60% and to provide guarantees from certain of our rig-owning subsidiaries sufficient to meet certain guarantee coverage ratios. The Credit Facility also contains customary restrictive covenants, including, among others, prohibitions on creating, incurring or assuming certain debt and liens (subject to customary exceptions, including a permitted lien basket that permits us to raise secured debt up to the lesser of $750 million or 10% of consolidated tangible net worth (as defined in the Credit Facility)); entering into certain merger arrangements; selling, leasing, transferring or otherwise disposing of all or substantially all of our assets; making a material change in the nature of the business; paying or distributing dividends on our ordinary shares (subject to certain exceptions, including the ability to continue paying a quarterly dividend of $0.01 per share); borrowings, if after giving effect to any such borrowings and the application of the proceeds thereof, the aggregate amount of available cash (as defined in the Credit Facility) would exceed $150 million; and entering into certain transactions with affiliates.

The Credit Facility also includes a covenant restricting our ability to repay indebtedness maturing after September 2022, which is the final maturity date of our Credit Facility. This covenant is subject to certain exceptions that permit us to manage our balance sheet, including the ability to make repayments of indebtedness (i) of acquired companies within 90 days of the completion of the acquisition or (ii) if, after giving effect to such repayments, available cash is greater than $250 million and there are no amounts outstanding under the Credit Facility.

As of September 30, 2018, we were in compliance in all material respects with our covenants under the Credit Facility. We had no amounts outstanding under the Credit Facility as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017.

Our access to credit and capital markets depends on the credit ratings assigned to our debt. As a result of recent rating actions, we do not maintain an investment-grade status. Our current credit ratings, and any additional actual or anticipated downgrades in our credit ratings, could limit our available options when accessing credit and capital markets, or when restructuring or refinancing our debt. In addition, future financings or refinancings may result in higher borrowing costs and require more restrictive terms and covenants, which may further restrict our operations.
Note 8 -Income Taxes
 
Historically, we have calculated our provision for income taxes during interim reporting periods by applying the estimated annual effective tax rate for the full fiscal year to pre-tax income or loss, excluding discrete items, for the reporting period. We determined that since small changes in estimated pre-tax income or loss would result in significant changes in the estimated annual effective tax rate, the historical method would not provide a reliable estimate of income taxes for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017. We used a discrete effective tax rate method to calculate income taxes for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30,

22



2018 and 2017. We will continue to evaluate income tax estimates under the historical method in subsequent quarters and employ a discrete effective tax rate method if warranted.

Discrete income tax benefit for the three-month period ended September 30, 2018 was $7.9 million and was primarily attributable to an election under recently issued U.S. Treasury Regulations not to apply U.S. 2017 operating losses to deemed repatriated income, which provided for utilization of foreign tax credits that were subject to valuation allowance, and U.S. tax reform, partially offset by discrete tax expense related to the settlement of previously disclosed arbitration proceedings, rig sales and unrecognized tax benefits associated with tax positions taken in prior years. Discrete income tax benefit for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2018 was $19.1 million and was primarily attributable to the aforementioned election not to apply U.S. 2017 operating losses to deemed repatriated income, U.S. tax reform and a restructuring transaction, partially offset by discrete tax expense related to the settlement of previously disclosed arbitration proceedings, repurchase and redemption of senior notes, unrecognized tax benefits associated with tax positions taken in prior years and rig sales.

Discrete income tax expense for the three-month period ended September 30, 2017 was $3.2 million primarily attributable to the sale of a rig and resolutions of prior year tax matters. Discrete income tax expense for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2017 was $13.0 million and was primarily attributable to the exchange offers and debt repurchase, rig sales, a restructuring transaction, settlement of a previously disclosed legal contingency, the effective settlement of a liability for unrecognized tax benefits associated with a tax position taken in prior years and other resolutions of prior year tax matters.

U.S. Tax Reform

The U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“U.S. tax reform”) was enacted on December 22, 2017 and introduced significant changes to U.S. income tax law, including a reduction in the statutory income tax rate from 35% to 21% effective January 1, 2018, a one-time transition tax on deemed repatriation of deferred foreign income, a base erosion anti-abuse tax that effectively imposes a minimum tax on certain payments to non-U.S. affiliates, new and revised rules relating to the current taxation of certain income of foreign subsidiaries and revised rules associated with limitations on the deduction of interest.

Due to the timing of the enactment of U.S. tax reform and the complexity involved in applying its provisions, we made reasonable estimates of its effects and recorded such amounts in our consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2017 on a provisional basis. As we continue to analyze applicable information and data, and interpret any additional guidance issued by the U.S. Treasury Department, the Internal Revenue Service and others, we may make adjustments to the provisional amounts throughout the one-year measurement period as provided by Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118. Our accounting for the enactment of U.S. tax reform will be completed during 2018, and any adjustments we recognize could be material. The ongoing impact of U.S. tax reform may result in an increase in our consolidated effective income tax rate in future periods.

During the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018, we recognized a tax benefit of $400,000 and $12.1 million, respectively, associated with the one-time transition tax on deemed repatriation of the deferred foreign income of our U.S. subsidiaries.

Note 9 -Contingencies
Brazil Internal Investigation

On August 29, 2018, we received a letter from the Division of Enforcement of the SEC informing us that the Division had concluded its investigation into previously disclosed alleged irregularities related to the drilling services agreement with Petrobras for ENSCO DS-5 (the “DSA”) and does not intend to recommend any enforcement action against us. On August 31, 2018, we received a letter from the DOJ stating that it had closed the inquiry into this matter and acknowledging our full cooperation with the investigation. Our investigation did not identify any evidence that Pride International LLC (“Pride”) or Ensco or any of their current or former employees were aware of or involved in any wrongdoing. For additional information about this investigation and the DSA dispute discussed below, see Note 10 to our condensed consolidated financial statements included in our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

In August 2017, one of our Brazilian subsidiaries was contacted by the Office of the Attorney General for the Brazilian state of Paraná in connection with a criminal investigation procedure initiated against agents of both Samsung Heavy Industries, a shipyard in South Korea (“SHI”), and Pride in relation to the DSA. The Brazilian authorities requested information regarding our compliance program and the findings of our internal investigations. We cooperated with the Office of the Attorney General and provided documents in response to its request. We cannot predict the scope or ultimate outcome of this procedure or whether any Brazilian governmental authority will open an investigation into Pride’s involvement in this matter, or if a proceeding were opened, the scope or ultimate outcome of any such investigation.

DSA Dispute

On January 4, 2016, Petrobras sent a notice to us declaring the DSA void effective immediately, reserving its rights and stating its intention to seek any restitution to which it may be entitled. The previously disclosed arbitral hearing on liability related to the matter was held in March 2018. Prior to the arbitration tribunal issuing its decision, we and Petrobras agreed in August 2018 to a settlement of all claims relating to the DSA. No payments were made by either party in connection with the settlement agreement. The parties agreed to normalize business relations and the settlement agreement provides for our participation in current and future Petrobras tenders on the same basis as all other companies invited to these tenders. No losses were recognized during the current period with respect to this settlement as all disputed receivables with Petrobras related to the DSA were fully reserved in 2015.

In November 2016, we initiated separate arbitration proceedings in the U.K. against SHI for any losses we incur in connection with the foregoing Petrobras arbitration. SHI subsequently filed a statement of defense disputing our claim. In January 2018, the arbitration tribunal for the SHI matter issued an award on liability fully in our favor. SHI is liable to us for $10.0 million or damages that we can prove. We have submitted to the tribunal our claim for damages. The arbitral hearing on damages owed to us by SHI is scheduled to take place in the first quarter of 2019. We are unable to estimate the ultimate outcome of recovery for damages at this time.

Other Matters

In addition to the foregoing, we are named defendants or parties in certain other lawsuits, claims or proceedings incidental to our business and are involved from time to time as parties to governmental investigations or proceedings, including matters related to taxation, arising in the ordinary course of business. Although the outcome of such lawsuits or other proceedings cannot be predicted with certainty and the amount of any liability that could arise with respect to such lawsuits or other proceedings cannot be predicted accurately, we do not expect these matters to have a material adverse effect on our financial position, operating results or cash flows.


24



In the ordinary course of business with customers and others, we have entered into letters of credit to guarantee our performance as it relates to our drilling contracts, contract bidding, customs duties, tax appeals and other obligations in various jurisdictions. Letters of credit outstanding as of September 30, 2018 totaled $124.3 million and are issued under facilities provided by various banks and other financial institutions. Obligations under these letters of credit and surety bonds are not normally called, as we typically comply with the underlying performance requirement. As of September 30, 2018, we had not been required to make collateral deposits with respect to these agreements.
Note 10 -Segment Information
 
Our business consists of three operating segments: (1) Floaters, which includes our drillships and semisubmersible rigs, (2) Jackups and (3) Other, which consists of management services on rigs owned by third-parties. Our two reportable segments, Floaters and Jackups, provide one service, contract drilling.
    
Segment information for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 is presented below (in millions). General and administrative expense and depreciation expense incurred by our corporate office are not allocated to our operating segments for purposes of measuring segment operating income and are included in "Reconciling Items." We measure segment assets as property and equipment.

Concentration of Risk

We are exposed to credit risk related to our receivables from customers, our cash and cash equivalents, our short-term investments and our use of derivatives in connection with the management of foreign currency exchange rate risk. We mitigate our credit risk relating to receivables from customers, which consist primarily of major international, government-owned and independent oil and gas companies, by performing ongoing credit evaluations. We also maintain reserves for potential credit losses, which generally have been within our expectations. We mitigate our credit risk relating to cash and cash equivalents by focusing on diversification and quality of instruments. Cash equivalents consist of a portfolio of high-grade instruments. Custody of cash and cash equivalents is maintained at several well-capitalized financial institutions, and we monitor the financial condition of those financial institutions.  

We mitigate our credit risk relating to derivative counterparties through a variety of techniques, including transacting with multiple, high-quality financial institutions, thereby limiting our exposure to individual counterparties and by entering into International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. ("ISDA") Master Agreements, which include provisions for a legally enforceable master netting agreement, with almost all of our derivative counterparties. The terms of the ISDA agreements may also include credit support requirements, cross default provisions, termination events or set-off provisions.  Legally enforceable master netting agreements reduce credit risk by providing protection in bankruptcy in certain circumstances and generally permitting the closeout and netting of transactions with the same counterparty upon the occurrence of certain events.  See "Note 5 - Derivative Instruments" for additional information on our derivatives.
