Mr. Sam Norton, President and CEO, stated, “While seasonal softness in spot tanker rates has slowed the momentum of recent market gains, we remain confident that the mix of our revenue streams will continue to provide a solid foundation to capture the benefits of the continuing arc of improving fundamentals. Our niche businesses once again performed well and progress in securing more long-term charter contracts during recent months, coupled with resilience in our ATB earnings stream, gives cause to believe that our commercial chartering strategy is on the right track. Importantly, new contract signings for additions to our fleet position OSG well to reap economic rewards which are expected to materialize in the wake of new regulations coming into force over the next two years.”
