Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.


On December 11, 2020, Nabors Industries, Inc. (the “Company”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nabors Industries Ltd. (“Nabors”), completed a private exchange transaction whereby $31,648,000 aggregate principal amount of its 5.75% Senior Notes due 2025 were exchanged for $16,457,000 of the Company’s newly-issued 9.00% Senior Priority Guaranteed Notes due 2025 (the “Additional Notes”) pursuant to the provisions of that certain indenture dated as of December 1, 2020, by and among the Company, the guarantors party thereto (the “Guarantors”), and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee (the “Indenture”), whereby the Company had previously issued $175,575,000 aggregate principal amount of its 9.00% Senior Priority Guaranteed Notes due 2025 (the “Initial Notes”).


The Additional Notes will mature on February 1, 2025 and pay interest at a rate of 9.00% per annum. The Additional Notes will be the Company’s senior unsecured obligations and will be guaranteed by (i) Nabors, (ii) each of the subsidiaries that guarantee Nabors’ existing 7.25% Senior Guaranteed Notes due 2026 and 7.50% Senior Guaranteed Notes due 2028 (together, the “Existing Guaranteed Notes”) and (iii) certain lower tier subsidiaries of Nabors that guarantee the Company’s revolving credit facility but do not currently guarantee the Existing Guaranteed Notes. The guarantee of the Additional Notes by such lower tier subsidiaries will be contractually subordinated in right of payment with respect to such lower tier subsidiaries’ guarantee of the Company’s revolving credit facility. The Additional Notes will (i) rank pari-passu with the Company’s Initial Notes and (ii) be structurally senior to all other outstanding notes issued by the Company and Nabors, including the Existing Guaranteed Notes.


The summary description of the Indenture in this report is qualified in its entirety by reference to Exhibit 4.1.
