TORM has today entered into an agreement to purchase three 2013-built MR eco product tanker vessels for a total cash consideration of USD 48.5m and the issuance of 1.42 million shares. The transaction will increase TORM’s total fleet to 88 vessels on a fully delivered basis.
The vessels that are all built at a tier 1 Korean yard and have fuel-efficient eco vessel specifications are expected to be delivered no later than 31 May 2023. The cash element of the transaction is expected to be financed through traditional bank financing, and in connection with each of the three deliveries TORM will issue one third of the total share issuance, corresponding to 50% of the total consideration.
Loyal to its commitments to the UN Global Compact and Sustainable Development Goal 13, TORM is pushing fast forward in environmental efforts and will reduce carbon intensity by 40% compared to the IMO baseline by 2025 – instead of 2030 and zero CO2 emissions from its operating fleet by 2050
