Omega Acquires Two Tankers

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

Payment terms provide for a 10% deposit payment, payable now, and the balance of 90% at the respective deliveries of each vessel. The Company has secured bank financing at competitive terms for 90% of the deposit payment and 75% of the entire purchase price.

Each vessel has currently secured employment to ST Shipping, a subsidiary of Glencore International, AG, under a three year time charter commencing at the time of delivery at a gross daily rate of $21,135. The time charters on both vessels include profit sharing arrangements settled on a quarterly basis, pursuant to which earnings from the vessels in excess of $21,135 per day will be divided equally between owners and ST Shipping.

With the addition of these two vessels, Omega's fleet will expand to 15 product tankers, including seven newbuilding handymax vessels, expected to be delivered between the second quarter 2009 and early 2011, with a total deadweight capacity of 791,358 dwt.
