Simultaneously with the purchase, she will be time-chartered back to Vitol SA for a minimum period of three years.

The company also announced that its associate, MUNIA Mobiliengesellschaft mBH & Co. KG ("MUNIA"), has agreed to sell its container vessel, Maersk Belawan to a third party for a gross consideration of $13.15m. The proceeds will be used to prepay the loan balance on the vessel and pay the costs and duties incurred in connection with the sale. Remaining net proceeds are expected to be distributed to the shareholders of MUNIA, including the Company, which will receive $1 million plus 40% of any amount in excess of $4.9 million. The delivery of the Maersk Belawan vessel to the buyers is expected before the end of February 2008.
