Note 4 – Interest bearing debt

Interest is payable quarterly in arrears. As of March 31, 2011, the Company had one interest rate swap in an amount of $65,000,000 under which DHT pays a fixed rate of 5.95% including margin of 0.85%. From January 1, 2009 the Company has discontinued hedge accounting on a prospective basis. Derivatives are re-measured to their fair value at each balance sheet date. The resulting gain and loss is recognized in profit or loss.

The Company’s credit agreements contain a financial covenant related to the charter-free market value of the Company’s vessels that secure the obligations under the credit facilities. With regards to the credit agreement related to the DHT Phoenix entered into in the first quarter of 2011, the charter free value of the vessel shall at all times be above 130% of the outstanding under loan. As of March 31, 2011 the Company was in compliance with the financial covenant.

Note 5 – Vessels and Vessel Acquisitions

For purposes of calculating the depreciation of our vessels, the scrap value used to calculate the estimated residual values has been changed as of January 1, 2011 to $300 per ton. This will reduce the depreciation on our vessels owned as of January 1, 2011 by about $2.2 million per year.

On March 1, 2011 DHT took delivery of the DHT Phoenix, a 1999 built VLCC. The purchase price was $55,000,000 which has been financed with cash and $27,500,000 in debt financing. The vessel is expected to enter the Tankers International Pool in April 2011.
