The vessel has been sold for recycling in line with the requirements set out in the Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships, 2009 (the Hong Kong Convention). The vessel is scheduled to be delivered to the new owner ultimo January 2014.

On a consolidated basis the sale will generate an estimated preliminary book loss of NOK 9.1 million including a NOK 4.7 million reversal of IFRS translation differences.
