Particular risks Operating risks Currency risks Interest rate risks Human rights Anti-corruption and anti-bribery Our business depends on the level of activity in the oil and gas industry. Adverse developments affecting the industry, including a decline in the price of oil or gas, reduced demand for oil and gas products and increased regulation of drilling and production, have in the past had and may in the future have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations. The Company's functional currency is the US Dollar. However, a portion of our expenses are incurred in local currencies. Therefore, when the US Dollar weakens (strengthens) in relation to the currencies of the countries in which we operate, our expenses reported in US Dollars will increase (decrease). Future cash flows are exposed to risks to the extent that foreign currency expenses exceed revenues denominated in the same foreign currency. To help manage this potential risk, Noble Drilling Group periodically enter into derivative instruments to manage our net exposure to fluctuations in currency exchange rates. The Company are subject to market risk exposure related to changes in interest rates on borrowings and may be subject to similar exposure on future borrowing arrangements. Future cash flows for financial instruments will fluctuate because of changes in market interest rates. The Company mitigates interest rate exposure by entering into fixed rate loans or interest rate swaps at the parent company level whereas individual subsidiaries generally are funded through loans carrying floating interest rates. Noble is first and foremost a people business, focused on acting with integrity and respect, and keeping people safe. With operations globally, Noble recognizes the risk of safety and its responsibility with regard to the impact it has on people on many levels, including employees, partners, customers, and the local communities where we operate. By maintaining a structured approach and actively pursuing procedural discipline, we maintain our focus on the health, safety, and social wellbeing of our personnel, and support our goal to advance the development and retention of our diverse and talented workforce. In 2022, Noble carried out three studies on board Noble Venturer, Noble Invincible and Noble Integrator, with the purpose of learning how to increase the safety of operations through positive observation of how the crew adds safety to the work process during normal everyday tasks. The focus of the studies was work in red zones and how this is managed and coordinated. Results from these studies have been shared amongst crews to foster a learning culture and have also generated a positive response from customers, with feedback garnered that this is the right direction for the industry to move in. Going forward we will continue to strive to create a workplace that keeps people safe and offers meaningful career opportunities. Noble Corporation and each of its wholly owned subsidiaries (“Noble Group”) are committed to acting ethically and responsible in carrying out our business. This includes complying with applicable anti-slavery and human trafficking laws and implementing policies to mitigate the risk related to human rights violation in the supply chain. Noble Group’s commitment to a strong compliance culture is fundamental to our continued growth as a leading offshore drilling contractor for the oil and gas industry. Noble’s Code of conduct provides the foundation for our culture and underscores our commitment to performance with honest, integrity, and respect. The Code also includes our responsibility and commitment to follow all applicable laws as well as our own internal policies and processes, and to require any supplier of third party who works with Noble Group to comply with similar fundamental principles. In September 2022, Noble hosted a Supplier Day in Suriname for prospective suppliers. Topics included an introduction to the Company’s safety culture and company values, responsible procurement practices, including anti-bribery and anti-corruption controls, as well as the standards required to work as a supplier in the oil and gas industry. Through events such as this one, Noble aspires to play a part in developing emerging economies, dispersing knowledge about good business practices, and strengthening local suppliers. Going forward we continue to be committed to conducting business responsibly, addressing a wide range of components constituting ethical behavior such as, employing responsible supplier practices, anti-bribery, anti-corruption and upholding labor and human rights. Noble is committed to conducting business responsibly, addressing a wide range of components constituting ethical behavior such as anti-competitive behavior, antibribery and corruption controls. With operations globally, Noble recognizes corruption and bribery as a potential risk. Our commitment to honesty and integrity extends to every aspect of our operations. Noble prohibits bribery in the conduct of all its business, all over the world. Bribery can take many forms, including payments, goods or services provided “in-kind,” and lavish entertainment and gifts. We must comply with all applicable laws against bribery and corruption and to uphold our commitment our policies are regularly communicated to all employees. Going forward we continue to be committed to conducting business responsibly and prohibit bribery in the conduct of all our business, all over the world.

The Company's income statement for 2022 shows a loss of USD 201,477 thousand as against a profit of USD 342,922 thousand in 2021. Equity in the Company's balance sheet at 31 December 2022 stood at USD 2,781,030 thousand as against USD 2,972,879 thousand at 31 December 2021. The result for the year before before tax and before impairment shows a loss of USD 107,871 thousands, which is lower than management expectations in the annual report for 2021. The results for the year 2022 are impacted by continued challenges with utilisation, especially in the North Sea. While we are starting to see some increased tender activity in the UK North Sea, overall activity levels remain subdued compared to historical levels. It is currently a similar story in the Norway ultra-harsh environment jackup market where current activity also remains below historical levels, despite the market being attractive to operators given it is characterised by low-cost and low-emission barrels.
