Frontline Ltd. (NYSE:FRO) ("Frontline" or the "Company") today announced that it
has  entered into a private agreement to exchange $25 million of the outstanding
principal  amount of  the Company's  4.5% Convertible Bond  Issue 2010/2015 (the
"Bonds")  for an  aggregate of  approximately 5.8 million  shares at an exchange
price  of $2.41 per share, the closing price  of the Company's shares on the New
York  Stock Exchange on October 10, 2013, and  a cash payment of $2,250,000.  In
addition,  under  the  exchange  agreement,  Frontline  has  agreed to issue, on
October  18, 2013, up to an additional 1.2 million  shares to the holders of the

than the exchange price, subject to a minimum VWAP price of $2.00 per share.
