The vessels, which will be named the Omega Emmanuel and the Omega Theodore upon their delivery to the Company, each have a capacity of approximately 73,000 dwt. and are both currently under construction at STX Shipbuilding Co., South Korea.

The Omega Emmanuel is expected to be delivered on March 23 and the Omega Theodore is expected to be delivered on April 26.

The agreed purchase price of the Omega Emmanuel and the Omega Theodore is $64.5m per vessel. The acquisitions will be funded with internally generated cash and commercial bank debt totaling $60 million per vessel. The balance will be funded by a $4.5 million, zero coupon warrant issued to the seller for each vessel, which will convert into Omega Class A common shares, no earlier than March 31, 2009
