Een berichtje van…
Beursmanager Joost Ringeling

HISWA 2016 ligt alweer een aantal maanden achter ons en de zomer heeft inmiddels haar intrede gedaan. Het doet me goed weer volop sloepen door de Amsterdamse grachten te zien varen. Ook de Loosdrechtse Plassen, waar ik afgelopen weekend zelf met mijn gezin aan het varen was, waren drukbevolkt…

july-3016-3342684c-342e-4633-a0df-4f4b83d9d043

 

(Friday 29th July, Puerto Portals) – While Quantum Racing wrapped up their third regatta title of the 52 SUPER SERIES season with a race to spare on the Bay of Palma, winning 2016 Puerto Portals Sailing Week, Vladimir Liubomirov’s Bronenosec completed a notable comeback after a disappointing ninth at the Audi Settimana delle Bocche. A nailbiting finish to the final race when they pipped Provezza on the finish line by the length of their bowsprit, gave Bronenosec second overall on a tie-break with Azzurra.

Declaration of Dividend for the 76th consecutive quarter. Solid results in the second quarter.

NAT vessel

Hamilton, Bermuda, July 28, 2016

THE SECOND QUARTER OF 2016 SHOWS SOLID RESULTS. THE RECENT DELIVERIES OF FOUR JAPANESE-BUILT SECOND HAND SHIPS (COSTING $106M) AND THE PURCHASE OF TWO NEW VESSELS FROM KOREA ($64M CASH DELIVERY PAYMENT IN TOTAL FOR BOTH) TO BE DELIVERED IN THE NEXT SIX MONTHS ARE BEING FINANCED FROM OUR OWN RESOURCES, WITHOUT RAISING NEW EQUITY. THE MAKING OF THIS CASH PAYMENT IN TOTAL OF $170M, WHICH BRINGS THE FLEET TO 30 VESSELS AND ENHANCES OUR EARNINGS POTENTIAL SIGNIFICANTLY, GUIDED US IN SETTING THE DIVIDEND FOR 2Q2016. THE TANKER MARKET IS VOLATILE. A HIGHER DEMAND FOR TANKERS SHOULD RESULT IN HIGHER DIVIDENDS. WE BELIEVE THAT IN THE PRESENT CIRCUMSTANCES THE STRATEGY OF DEPLOYING OUR CASH BOTH TO PAY DIVIDEND AND TO BUY SHIPS AND THEREBY INCREASE OUR DIVIDEND CAPACITY IS IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE NAT SHAREHOLDERS. GOING FORWARD, COMPETITIVE DIVIDEND PAYMENTS, A STRONG BALANCE SHEET AND A HIGH LIQUIDITY IN THE STOCK, COMPARED WITH OUR COMPETITORS, CONTINUE TO BE PRIORITIZED OBJECTIVES FOR NAT.

 

In view of the above, the Board of Nordic American Tankers Limited has declared a cash dividend of $0.25 per share to shareholders of record August 17, 2016. The dividend is expected to be paid on or about August 31, 2016.

 

The 2Q2016 earnings report is expected to be released Monday August 8, 2016 before NYSE opening.
