OSG Suspends Quarterly Dividend

(Press Release)
Saturday, February 11, 2012


 

Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. (NYSE: OSG), a market leader in providing energy transportation services, announced that its Board of Directors has suspended the payment of regular quarterly dividends.  No dividend will be paid in the first quarter of 2012.

Commenting on the dividend suspension, Morten Arntzen, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated:  "The downturn in our international flag markets has been deeper and has lasted longer than we anticipated, as evidenced by a fairly tepid winter market.  At the same time, economic uncertainty in the world persists and the banking markets have become more challenging.  Therefore, to preserve liquidity and maintain financial flexibility, the Board suspended the quarterly dividend until further notice.  The Board will reassess the dividend as our markets improve."
