Oslo, 30 August 2019
Hunter Tankers AS (the «Company»), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hunter Group ASA, is pleased to announce that it has agreed to enter into a binding term sheet for a 5-year sale-and-leaseback agreement with a large leasing company at highly attractive terms.
The Board is of the opinion that the agreement is beneficial to all shareholders as it retains maximum flexibility for the Company and eliminates the need for any additional equity in order for the Company to take delivery of all vessels in the newbuilding program. Consequently, the Company has cancelled the senior secured term loan announced on May 22 2019.
Further details will be provided upon closing of the transaction.
