    sorta. Raised the same amount as the $1B dividend. Bad financial management all around.

    Management just greatly diluted earnings and value -- no wonder investors began dumping their shares. Had I known in advance, I would have too.

     

    I have held RIG for quite some time, and was NOT notified of this, yet alone been told there was a vote on the matter. Poor management.
