Hey hum !

My question is ... why? are they shedding all this money now?



Seadrill indicated they did it for the benefit of US shareholders- that whole "fiscal cliff" thing.

Being consistent, two other companies with major Fredriksen stakes, Golar LNG (GLNG) and Ship Finance
Intl (SFL), have followed suit and combined their respective Q3 and Q4 dividends into one payout in 2012.
