The outstanding amount that the time charter partners have as a consequence of the amended contractual conditions as well as a fee to the banks are estimated at a total net present value of USD 200 million that will be converted into shares in the Company. The conversion to new share capital will take place in connection with the completion of the restructuring. The future ownership structure is hereafter expected to be as follows:
|| Expected ownership share

The equity allocation between the banks and the time charter-in partners has been separately agreed between them and is part of the Restructuring Agreement.
With the conversion of the consideration of USD 200 million in aggregate and the expected issuance of 655.2 million new shares, the implied subscription price for the new shares will be DKK 1.79 (approximately USD 0.31 per share). The Company will apply to have the new shares admitted to trading and official listing on NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen after the completion of all conditions to the restructuring and following the preparation and publication of a listing prospectus.
