OMI Corporation Announces Vessel Sale

Tuesday, December 18, 2001
OMI Corporation announced that it has sold the Soyang, one of its Suezmax tankers, to Jacob Tankschiffahrtsgesellschaft GmbH & Co. KG and agreed to time charter the vessel back for a period of five years. The company has options to extend the time charter and to repurchase the vessel at the end of the time charter. The transaction results in a gain of approximately $5 million dollars, which will be realized over the term charter. The transaction has increased the company’s cash by approximately $20 million after repayment of the debt allocable to the vessel. Craig H. Stevenson, chairman, chief executive and president OMI commented that “in potentially prolonged weak markets, it is especially important to have cash on hand both to withstand the lower cash flow and take advantages of opportunities. This transaction is an important step in increasing the company’s liquidity.”
