GMR Combines with Arlington Tankers

Friday, December 19, 2008

General Maritime Corporation (GMR) announced that Historic General Maritime and Arlington Tankers Ltd. have completed their combination to form public company to be known as General Maritime Corporation (formerly known as Galileo Holding Corporation).

In accordance with the terms of their merger agreement, Historic General Maritime and Arlington each became wholly-owned subsidiaries of General Maritime. All outstanding shares of both companies were exchanged for shares of General Maritime. Arlington shareholders are entitled to receive one share of General Maritime common stock for each share of Arlington common stock they held immediately prior to the effective time of the combination, and Historic General Maritime shareholders are entitled to receive 1.34 shares of General Maritime common stock for each share of Historic General Maritime common stock they held immediately prior to the effective time of the combination.

No fractional shares of General Maritime common stock will be issued in the combination, and shareholders who otherwise would have been entitled to receive fractional shares are entitled to receive a cash payment in lieu of those fractional shares equal to the fractional share interest multiplied by the closing price of a share of General Maritime common stock at the end of regular trading hours on the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday, December 17, 2008, as that price is reported on the NYSE Composite Transaction Tape.

Existing shareholders holding share certificates of Historic General Maritime or Arlington will receive a mailing in the next few weeks that includes a Letter of Transmittal from BNY Mellon Shareowner Services, who is acting as Exchange Agent. This mailing will contain specific instructions regarding the exchange of shares. Existing shareholders of either company who hold their shares in "street name" need not take any action with respect to the exchange of shares.
