National Oilwell Varco, Inc. says that its Board of Directors has authorized Company management to move forward with exploration of a plan to spin-off NOV's distribution business from the remainder of the Company, creating two stand-alone, publicly traded corporations. The Company believes that the separation of the distribution business can be accomplished via a tax-efficient spin-off to NOV shareholders.

Pete Miller, Chairman and CEO of National Oilwell Varco, remarked, 'Through the hard work and dedicated efforts of its employees, and with last year's acquisitions of Wilson Supply and C.E. Franklin, we believe the Company's distribution business now has the market size and scale to operate as a standalone, world class, distribution company. As a separate company, the distribution group would have over 415 locations and operations in 26 countries, representing approximately 85% of the revenue of NOV's Distribution and Transmission Segment for the six months ending June 30, 2013. This distribution company will be a leading, pure play, provider of maintenance, repair and operating supplies to the global energy and industrial markets, and poised for continued profitable growth.
