Teekay Announces IPO

Tuesday, December 04, 2007
Teekay Corporation (Teekay) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Teekay Tankers Ltd., has filed a registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for an initial public offering of its Class A Common Stock. The offering currently is scheduled to include 10,000,000 shares of Class A Common Stock (11,500,000 shares if the underwriters exercise their over-allotment option in full), representing a 40% ownership interest. The Class A Common Stock has been approved for listing on The New York Stock Exchange, subject to official notice of issuance, under the symbol "TNK."

Teekay Tankers Ltd., a recently formed Marshall Islands corporation, will acquire from Teekay upon the closing of the public offering a fleet of nine double-hull Aframax-class oil tankers, which an affiliate of Teekay will manage under a mix of spot-market trading and short- or medium-term fixed-rate time-charter contracts. In addition, Teekay will offer to Teekay Tankers within 18 months of the public offering the opportunity to purchase up to four Suezmax-class oil tankers. Teekay Tankers intends to distribute on a quarterly basis all of its cash available for distribution, subject to any reserves established by its board of directors. Citi and Morgan Stanley will act as joint book-running managers and as representatives of the underwriters, who will include Merrill Lynch & Co., Wachovia Securities, Deutsche Bank Securities, JPMorgan, Dahlman Rose & Company, Scotia Capital, and Johnson Rice & Company L.L.C.
