OSG Sells 5 Million Shares of DHT

Thursday, June 07, 2007
Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. and Double Hull Tankers, Inc. jointly announced today the sale of five million shares of common stock of Double Hull Tankers pursuant to an underwriting agreement with Merrill Lynch & Co. and UBS Investment Bank. OSG has granted the underwriters a 30-day over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 750,000 shares of DHT common stock at the agreed price. The shares of common stock will be offered by the underwriters from time to time to purchasers directly or through agents, or through brokers in brokerage transactions on the New York Stock Exchange, or to dealers in negotiated transactions or in a combination of such methods of sale, at a fixed price or prices, which may be changed, or at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to such prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices. OSG expects to recognize a gain from the transaction of approximately $15 million in the second quarter of 2007. After completion of the sale, assuming the over-allotment option is not exercised, OSG's beneficial ownership of DHT's common stock will be reduced from approximately 29.17%, or 8,751,500 shares, to approximately 12.5%, or 3,751,500 shares. This sale was made pursuant to DHT's existing shelf registration statement. DHT will not receive any proceeds from this sale of its common stock.
