    Chesapeake completes spin-off of oilfield services business

    Chesapeake Energy Corp.

    Chesapeake Energy Corp. (NYSE: CHK) has completed the spin-off of its oilfield services business, previously conducted through Chesapeake Oilfield Operating LLC, into a stand-alone, publicly traded company called Seventy Seven Energy Inc. (NYSE: SSE).

    Following the close of business on June 30, Chesapeake distributed to its shareholders one share of common stock of SSE for every 14 shares of Chesapeake common stock outstanding as of 5 p.m. EDT on June 19, the record date for the distribution. No fractional shares of SSE common stock were issued; however, shareholders entitled to receive a fractional share of SSE common stock in the distribution instead received the cash value of that fractional share.

    SSE common stock began “regular-way” trading under the symbol “SSE” on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on July 1. Chesapeake common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE under the ticker symbol “CHK.”
