Teekay Tankers Post Loss in Q2 2012

Press Release
Friday, August 10, 2012

Teekay Tankers Ltd. reports results for the three months ended June 30, 2012, pays out reduced dividend compared to Q1.

Excerpts from the quarterly report follow:

In June 2012, Teekay Tankers completed the previously announced acquisition from [parent company] Teekay Corporation of 13 double hull conventional tankers, including seven crude oil tankers and six product tankers.

"After the completion of our 13-vessel acquisition from Teekay Corporation in June, we continue to focus on managing employment of our significantly expanded fleet to achieve the right balance of downside protection through fixed-rate coverage and upside through spot market exposure," commented Bruce Chan , Chief Executive Officer of Teekay Tankers.

Mr. Chan added, "Through this period of seasonal and cyclical spot tanker market weakness, Teekay Tankers remains financially well-positioned with over $386 million of available liquidity and no significant debt maturities until 2017."

Reportedly crude tanker rates softened during the second quarter of 2012 due to a combination of tanker supply growth, reduced tanker demand and seasonal factors. According to the International Energy Agency, global oil demand declined by 0.6 million barrels per day (mb/d) during the second quarter due to refinery turnarounds in both the Atlantic and Pacific basins.
