HOUSTON, April 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oil States International, Inc. (NYSE:OIS) today announced that its subsidiary, Civeo Corporation (formerly known as OIS Accommodations SpinCo Inc.), has filed amendment number three to its Form 10 (Form 10) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in connection with Oil States' previously announced plan to effect a spin-off of its accommodations business.

The amended Form 10 contains important information about Civeo, including standalone financial information, a discussion of the company's operating and growth strategies and progress in establishing a separate management team and board of directors for Civeo. Oil States expects that subsequent amendments to the Form 10 will be filed prior to completion of the spin-off. A copy of the amended Form 10 is available at http://www.ir.oilstatesintl.com under "Quick Resources."

Under the separation plan announced in July 2013, Oil States plans to execute a tax-free spin-off of Civeo to Oil States shareholders by the end of the second quarter of 2014. The offshore products and well site services businesses will continue to operate under the "Oil States International" name and continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the symbol "OIS." Oil States shareholders will own shares in both corporations following the completion of the transaction. Civeo intends to have its common stock separately listed on the NYSE.

The completion of the spin-off will be subject to market conditions, the receipt of an independent tax opinion, completion of a review by the SEC of the amended Form 10 filed by Civeo and final approval of the Oil States board of directors. The spin-off will not be subject to a shareholder vote.
