GENEVA, Sept. 13, 2012 -- Weatherford International Ltd. (NYSE / Euronext Paris
/ SIX: WFT) today informs its shareholders that a Form 8-K has been filed with
the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").  The Form 8-K includes
notification that effective September 12, 2012, Weatherford amended its Articles
of Association to update them for changes in its outstanding share capital
resulting from its issuance of registered shares out of conditional capital in
connection with the exercise of certain warrants in February 2012. The exercise
of the warrants resulted in an increase of Weatherford's share capital by a
total of CHF 5,571,670.24 (an amount equal to the 4,803,164 registered shares
issued in connection with the transaction multiplied by the par value per share
of CHF 1.16).   As a result, the amended Articles of Association now reflect a
registered share capital of CHF 973,941,253.64, which is divided into
839,604,529 registered shares.  Weatherford also made corresponding changes to
its Articles of Association to reduce its remaining conditional share capital by
the amount of the capital increase.  The amended Articles of Association also
reflect, as required under Swiss law, the removal of Article 5 relating to
authorized capital resulting from the expiration of authorized capital on June
23, 2012.
