TORM Sale, Leaseback Agreement for Product Tanker

Thursday, June 09, 2011

TORM has entered into a sale and leaseback agreement for the product tanker TORM Marie. The vessel has been sold for a total consideration of $46m. The transaction will be treated as a sale with an accounting profit of $7m.                                                                       

The sale will be effected in the second quarter of 2011 where the effect of the transaction will be recognised in the financial statements. At the same time, the vessel will be leased back on a bareboat charter for 7 years.
 
The transaction does not change the company's forecast for 2011 of a loss before tax of $100-125m. Following the sale and leaseback agreement, TORM's own fleet consists of 68.5 product tankers and two dry bulk vessels. In addition, TORM has four product tankers and two dry bulk vessels on order.
