The Company will not issue any new securities in connection with the contemplated listing on the NYSE.

Kristian Sørensen, BW LPG CEO, says “BW LPGs upcoming dual listing on the NYSE is a significant milestone for our company and enhancing our access to the worlds largest capital market and its investor base. In combination with our proven commercial track record and focus on financial returns, we are confident our NYSE listing will increase shareholder values and strengthen BW LPGs market-leading position in VLGC shipping as well as adjacent areas of the LPG value chain.

The US LPG industry is playing a major role in the global LPG market, and BW LPG is already deeply involved in the US LPG exports through an extensive cargo lifting program on our ships as well as our cargo trading activities. We look forward to expanding our engagement with investors and market participants who are familiar with and close to the US energy sectors.

Today, I extend my deepest appreciation to our hardworking colleagues and partners for bringing us a step closer towards our listing on the NYSE.”
