New Directors Elected at Aker Maritime

Tuesday, December 18, 2001
Aker Maritime's corporate assembly has elected Bengt A Rem and Olav Revhaug as the new shareholder representatives on the board of Aker Maritime ASA. Aker Maritime's corporate assembly has elected new directors to take the place of Kjell Inge Røkke and Helge Lund who resigned as directors of Aker Maritime after being elected to the board of Kværner ASA. The election was in accordance with the election committee's recommendations. Bengt A Rem is executive vice president of Aker RGI with responsibility for finance and administration. An employee of Aker RGI since 1995, he previously held positions at the Oslo Stock Exchange and Arthur Andersen & Co. He is a state-authorized accountant and a graduate of the Norwegian School of Management. Olav Revhaug is a director of Aker RGI. Previously he was the financial head of Resource Group International. He has worked for companies in the Aker RGI group for more than eight years. Before that he was the financial head of Gresvig ASA and Brooks Sports, Inc. He is also a graduate of the Norwegian School of Management. Aker Maritime's board now consists of Bjørn Flatgård (chairman), Bjørn Gabriel Reed (deputy chairman), Bengt A Rem, Olav Revhaug, Christian von der Ohe, Atle Tranøy and Stein Aamdal. The last three are employee representatives.

In addition, Aker Maritime announces that the sale of shares to Aker RGI can go ahead. An extraordinary general meeting (EGM) of shareholders in Aker Maritime ASA today agreed to alter the resolution on capital reduction taken by the shareholders' meeting of July 6, 2001. This opens the way for Aker RGI's purchase of Aker Maritime shares to go ahead. Nearly 4,400 Aker Maritime shareholders have accepted the offer made by the company's main shareholder Aker RGI Holding ASA. Acceptances have been received on behalf of 7,621,516 shares in Aker Maritime, corresponding to 13.44 percent of the company's share capital.

Following the transaction Aker RGI will own 43,341,346 shares, corresponding to 76.42 per cent of the company's shares. According to Aker RGI, these figures may change somewhat, and the final degree of acceptance will be made known on December 19.
