Dorian LPG Takes Over Scorpio VLGC Contracts

Dorian LPG Ltd. has entered into an agreement with Scorpio Tankers Inc. whereby Scorpio will contribute its entire Very Large Gas Carrier (VLGC) newbuilding contracts, together with a cash contribution of $1.9 million, in exchange for newly issued shares representing 30% of the company’s pro-forma outstanding shares immediately following the transaction.

As of the date of the transaction, Scorpio Tankers will have paid $83.1 million in installment payments for the 11 VLGC contracts.

As part of the transaction, the company will grant Scorpio Tankers certain protection rights customary for significant shareholders, which will terminate upon Dorian LPG’s listing on the NYSE or NASDAQ, which is expected to take place within 2014.

The above-mentioned transaction, which is subject to the execution of definitive agreements and satisfaction of customary closing conditions, is expected to close within the fourth quarter of 2013, at which time the Company anticipates to commence a capital raise.
