The 73,000 dwt LR1 Nordic Anne will remain commercially managed by Hafnia in the Straits Tankers Pool, while its technical management will remain with TB Marine. All existing commercial and technical management agreements will be subject to a detailed strategic review by the Company following completion of the restructuring with a view to maximizing shareholder returns.

Following the completion of the restructuring the Company will enter into a new corporate management agreement with Singapore-based Transport Capital Pte. Ltd., an investment management firm founded by former key senior management of FSL Trust Management Pte. Ltd., headed by Philip Clausius. Transport Capital will take over the corporate management responsibilities from Hafnia Tankers (formerly Tankers Inc.), subject to a three month orderly transition period.
