The total price value of the contract is about USD 122 million. . The vessels are expected to be delivered in September and October 2015. NAT does not plan to issue equity to finance these two vessels.
The plan will lead to an increase in the dividend capacity and earnings potential of Nordic American Tanker. A strong balance sheet, the dividend policy and a well defined and transparent operating model provide NAT with a solid competitive position.
The addition of the two Suezmax tankers has expanded its fleet to 26 vessels.
