|(d)||Appointment of Director|
On June 1, 2016, upon the recommendation of the Nominating and Governance Committee of the Board of Directors of Schlumberger Limited (the Company, and such board, the Board), the Board appointed Helge Lund as a new director in accordance with the Companys Articles of Incorporation. Mr. Lund will serve as a director until the next annual general meeting of the Companys stockholders and will be subject to election by the vote of stockholders of the Company at such meeting.
The Board expects to appoint Mr. Lund to one or more committees of the Board at a later date. As of the filing of this Report, the Board has not determined Mr. Lunds initial committee assignments, nor has the Company determined whether Mr. Lund or any member of his immediate family has a material interest in any transaction that would require disclosure pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K. The Company will provide the foregoing information by filing an amendment to this Report after the information is determined or becomes available.
As a non-employee director, Mr. Lund will participate in the non-employee director compensation arrangements described in the Companys definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) on February 19, 2016 and will be eligible for a pro-rated portion of the Companys annual non-employee director compensation. In addition, it is expected that he will enter into the Companys standard form of director indemnity agreement. The form of the indemnity agreement was filed as Exhibit 10 to the Companys Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on October 21, 2013 and is incorporated herein by reference.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the duly authorized undersigned.
