TORM Sells Two Dry Bulk Newbuilds

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

TORM has entered into an agreement to sell the two Kamsarmax dry bulk newbuildings TORM Karen and TORM Kate. Both vessels are planned to be delivered to TORM in Q1 2011. The newbuildings have been sold for a total consideration of USD 90 million with a total net loss of $16m.

The newbuildings are expected to be delivered to the new owner in the first quarter of 2011, where the effect of the transaction will be recognized in the financial statements.

"We consider timing of the sale to be attractive given the large number of new vessel deliveries in the coming years. Going forward we expect that the continued volatile dry bulk market will offer many interesting opportunities which we are ready to exploit," said CEO Jacob Meldgaard.

Following the sale of the vessels, TORM's owned fleet consists of 68 product tankers and two dry bulk vessels. In addition, TORM has seven product tankers and two dry bulk vessels on order.
