SFL - Sale of older VLCC

(GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Press release from Ship Finance International Limited, May 13, 2016.

Ship Finance International Limited SFL, -1.56% ("Ship Finance" or the "Company"), today announced that it has agreed to sell the 1998 built VLCC Front Vanguard to an unrelated third party. Ship Finance has simultaneously agreed to terminate the corresponding charter party for the 18-year old crude oil carrier with a subsidiary of Frontline Ltd. ("Frontline").

The vessel is expected to be delivered to its new owner by the end of June, and the net sales price is approximately $24 million, including a compensation of $0.4 million from Frontline for the early termination of the charter.

Divesting of older vessels is a part of the Company's strategy to renew and diversify the fleet, and the proceeds are expected to be reinvested in new assets. Following this sale, the number of vessels on charter to Frontline will be reduced to 13 vessels, including 11 VLCCs and two Suezmax crude oil tankers.
