Shipbuilding Order Dispute to the Tune of US$300-million

Press Release
Friday, March 08, 2013

FLEX LNG (HQ in Tortola) is in continuing dispute with Samsung Heavy Industries and briefs its shareholders as follows:

"As previously announced, FLEX LNG considers the four shipbuilding contracts and the EPCIC that were entered into with SHI in 2008, to have been abandoned.

FLEX LNG has requested that SHI repays a net amount in excess of USD 300 million and appropriate actions are being taken to secure the repayment of the said funds.

In response to FLEX LNG's actions, SHI has recently  maintained that it has no obligation to repay any funds and, as was expected, on 05 March 2013 SHI purported to terminate the aforementioned contracts.

The purported terminations – which cannot be effective if the Contracts have been abandoned as FLEX maintains, do not alter FLEX LNG's position, nor do they affect the actions currently being taken by FL EX LNG for the commencement of arbitration proceedings to recover its funds.

FLEX LNG will update its shareholders of the ongoing dispute as additional information becomes available"
