SeaDrill's (SDRL) chairman and top shareholder appears to be putting his money where his mouth is by offering to lend the Bermuda-based deepwater driller as much as $1.2 billion. The company's shares soared Tuesday after SeaDrill's chairman appears ready to provide the company the major loan to help it restructure its more than $9 billion debt stack, according to Bloomberg. The offer was reportedly made via a group of fewer than 10 banks. SeaDrill shares have recently been pressured by a wave of new rigs throughout the industry.
