FRO – Termination of charter-in contracts of VLCCs

Frontline Ltd. («Frontline» or the «Company») has agreed with Ship Finance International Limited («Ship Finance») to terminate the long term charter parties for the 1998 and 1999 built VLCCs Front Champion and Golden Victory and Ship Finance has simultaneously sold the vessels to unrelated third parties. The charter parties are expected to terminate in November 2013.

The decision to terminate the long term charter parties was taken in view of the required investment to take the vessels through the 15 year special survey and current market rates. While the VLCC spot market has recently shown some signs of recovery, there is still a fundamental oversupply in the market and the retirement of older vessels should assist in balancing the market going forward.

Frontline has agreed an aggregate compensation payment to Ship Finance of approximately $90 million for the early termination of the charter parties, of which approximately $11 million will be paid upon termination and the balance will be recorded as notes payable, with similar amortisation profiles to the current lease obligations, with reduced rates until 2015 and full rates from 2016. Front Champion and Golden Victory have the highest charter rates among the vessels Frontline has chartered in from Ship Finance and the level of compensation is a reflection of this.

These transactions will reduce the Company’s obligations under capital leases by approximately $105 million and the remaining obligations under capital leases following these terminations will be approximately $735 million related to 15 VLCCs and five Suezmax tankers.

GC Rieber Shipping – beste kvartalsresultat i selskapets historie

GC Rieber Shipping opprettholder den gode underliggende driften i alle segmenter i tredje kvartal, og leverer sitt beste kvartalsresultat i selskapets historie.

Totalt hadde selskapet en kapasitetsutnyttelse på 96 prosent for flåten, tilsvarende samme periode året før. Salg av skip har frigjort betydelig med kapital og GC Rieber Shipping er godt posisjonert for videre vekst.

Driftsresultatet (EBITDA) endte på 137,9 millioner kroner, opp fra 106,9 millioner kroner, og tilsvarer en EBITDA margin på 60 prosent.

GC Rieber Shipping fikk et historisk godt resultat på 439,5 millioner kroner i tredje kvartal, mot 60,2 millioner kroner i tilsvarende periode i 2012.

«Det gode resultatet i tredje kvartal bekrefter nok en gang at selskapet har god underliggende drift. Gjennom salget av «HMS Protector» fikk vi frigjort betydelige midler, og vi har styrket vår finansielle posisjon ytterligere. Strategiske salg av enkeltskip er en del av vår forretningsmodell og muliggjør videre investeringer i nye skip innenfor våre kjernemarkeder», kommenterer administrerende direktør Irene Waage Basili.

Per 30. september 2013, hadde GC Rieber Shipping en solid ordrereserve på 3,1 milliarder kroner med en gjennomsnittlig kontrakts lengde på 2,5 år.

Aker Philadelphia Shipyard ASA (Oslo: AKPS) announces that its wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary, Aker Philadelphia Shipyard, Inc. (APSI), has been selected by Matson Navigation Company (Matson) to construct two 3,600 TEU containerships. Firm contracts are in place for the two vessels with a total value of $418 million. The vessels will be delivered in Q3 and Q4 2018 and will not require additional financing by APSI.

The 850 foot long vessels will be the largest Jones Act containerships ever constructed and will be utilized in Matson’s service from the U.S. West Coast to Hawaii. The vessels are capable of carrying a variety of container sizes and are able to operate at speeds in excess of 23 knots. The vessels will be built with dual fuel engines and will be ready for conversion to LNG propulsion.

«We have a proven track record of building containerships and are greatly looking forward to being partnered with Matson again,» said Kristian Rokke, Aker Philadelphia Shipyard President and CEO. APSI previously delivered four containerships to Matson between 2003 and 2006.

Rokke continued, «The planned delivery dates for these new containerships allow APSI to continue to capitalize on tight oil opportunities by constructing eight product tankers between 2015 and 2017 while still positioning the shipyard for the renewal of the Jones Act container fleet. The winning of this order provides the shipyard significant backlog and valuable visibility out 2018, which is positive for our shareholders and other stakeholders as we expect to use this opportunity to further strengthen our competitive position.»

APSI is currently constructing two 115,000 dwt crude oil carriers for SeaRiver Maritime, Inc., Exxon Mobil Corporation’s U.S. marine affiliate. Both of these crude oil tankers are scheduled for delivery in 2014. Pursuant to the joint venture announced on August 9, APSI also has contracts for the construction of product tankers with Crowley.
