Direct Registration is a method of recording shares of stock in book-entry form. Instead of being represented by a physical share certificate, your SLB shares are held directly in your name and recorded electronically in "book-entry" in our records, which are maintained by Computershare. Shares held in book-entry have all the traditional rights and privileges of shares held in certificate form.
What are the benefits of book-entry?
- Eliminates the risks and costs associated with the storing certificates and replacing lost or stolen certificates.
- Permits electronic share transactions between your broker or dealer and Computershare.
Can I exchange my stock certificate for book-entry shares?
You can direct that existing physical certificates be converted to book-entry shares at any time by sending your physical share certificates along with a letter of instruction to Computershare. No endorsements on the certificates are required. The method of delivery of certificates is at your election and risk. If delivered by mail, we recommend registered, insured mail for at least 3% of the market value. A Direct Registration Transaction Advice ("Advice") will be mailed to you promptly upon deposit of your shares.
Can I get a stock certificate for my book-entry shares?
You can request a physical share certificate representing all or a portion of your book-entry shares at any time. To request a certificate for your book-entry shares, you may call Computershare, visit their website, or prepare a written instruction and mail it to Computershare.
How do I transfer my shares to or from my brokerage account?
Have your broker request that your shares be sent to them through the Depository Trust Company's Direct Registration System. You may need to supply your broker with a copy of your latest Advice and the following information:
- Your Computershare account number (on your Advice)
- Your Social Security Number
- Computershare's DTC number, 7807
- The number of whole shares you wish to move from your Computershare account to your brokerage account
You can also instruct your broker to transfer whole shares from your brokerage account to a book-entry account maintained at Computershare.
How can I sell my Direct Registration shares?
The use of Computershare's sales facility is completely voluntary and you may sell your book-entry shares through Computershare at any time. Computershare cannot accept instructions to sell shares on a specific day or at a specific price. You may sell your shares as a market order or batch order. A market order sale is a request to sell shares promptly at market price. Market order sales are only available at www.computershare.com/investor through Investor Centre or by telephone.
A batch order sale is an accumulation of all sale requests submitted together as an aggregated request. Sale instructions for batch orders received by Computershare will be processed no later than five business days after the date on which the order is received, assuming the market is open for trading. All sales requests received in writing will automatically be treated as a batch order sale. Batch orders are submitted on each market day, assuming there are sale requests to be processed.
Note: The proceeds you receive will be reduced by a sales fee of $15.00 and $0.12 per share for a batch order sale, and $25.00 and $0.12 per share for a market order sale.
The price per share you receive will be the average price per share of all SLB shares sold by Computershare for holders of book-entry shares on the day your shares are sold. The proceeds you receive will be reduced by a sales fee of $15.00 and trading fees of $0.12 per share. The net proceeds from the sale will be mailed to you within approximately 7-10 days of the date of sale.
To authorize the sale, you can access your account via the Internet at the website listed on your Advice, by calling Computershare at the telephone number appearing on your Advice, or in writing. For security reasons, your telephone transactions will be recorded.
Please contact our transfer agent, Computershare, at 1-877-745-9341 or 1-781-575-2707 for shareholders located outside the United States. They will be happy to provide you with the necessary documents and instructions.
If your stock certificate is lost, stolen or destroyed, you should notify Computershare immediately so that a Stop Transfer can be placed on the certificate. Lost, stolen or destroyed stock certificates must be replaced under an open-penalty indemnity bond for which the insurance carrier charges a premium. Computershare will be happy to assist you in obtaining the necessary forms.
If you own your shares in book-entry form, please promptly notify Computershare of a change in your mailing address, to reduce the possibility of a delay in receiving your dividend checks and other important shareowner mailings. You can change your address by using your dividend check, the tear off portion of your account statement, or by calling and speaking with a customer service representative.
When a stockholder owns shares in more than one account, or when stockholders live at the same address, duplicate mailings may result. If you receive duplicate reports, you can help eliminate the added expense by requesting that only one copy be sent. To eliminate duplicate mailings, contact Computershare, our transfer agent and registrar, at the address and phone number listed above.
SLB shareholders who own shares through a brokerage or bank arrangement must contact their broker or bank for all account information.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires Computershare to withhold taxes for the applicable rate of backup withholding for U.S. persons without a W-9 tax certification who are not otherwise exempt. Computershare must withhold and pay to the IRS the applicable tax rate of such payments under certain conditions. This is called “backup withholding.” Supplying Computershare with your correct Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), and signing this form will generally allow you to receive your payments without being subject to backup withholding. Failure to supply your TIN, or supplying Computershare with an incorrect TIN, could result in a $50.00 penalty being assessed by the IRS. Receipt of a completed Form W-9 will discontinue backup withholding unless otherwise required.
The United States Internal Revenue Service requires that all non-resident alien investors certify their foreign status by completing Form W-8BEN. Failure to provide a completed Form W-8BEN may result in the imposition of a U.S. backup withholding tax on all payments to your account.
Printable copies of Form W-9 and Form W-8BEN may be downloaded at Computershare. Go to http://www.computershare.com/investor and click on Printable Forms. You may also update your tax status online.

SLB has become aware that some members of the public have received unsolicited telephone calls or correspondence concerning investment in debt or notes purportedly issued by SLB or an entity related to SLB, often claiming that the investments will pay above-market rates of interest.
These are typically from overseas "brokers" or "investment advisors" who target unsuspecting people, offering to sell them what often turn out to be non-existent, worthless, fraudulent or high-risk securities. These operations are commonly known as "boiler rooms."
These "brokers" can be very persistent and extremely persuasive.
These types of brokers often state that they are acting on behalf of, or as agent of, the issuer of the purported securities. You should thoroughly investigate any security being offered to you, as well as the person offering to sell you the security, before you decide to make an investment. If you are the recipient of unsolicited investment opportunities and you feel pressured in any way, simply end the call. Investment in any such fraudulent offers is at your own risk.
