Overseas Shipholding Group Inc. (OSG) said that its subsidiaries have entered into agreements with BP Oil Shipping Company USA and BP AMI Leasing Inc. to buy
U.S.-flagged crude oil carrier vessels operated by Alaska Tanker Company LLC
or ATC. Overseas Shipholding Group currently owns a 37.5% interest in ATC.

As part of the deal, OSG will acquire the remaining 62.5% interest of ATC that it does not own.

The agreements provide for deposits equal to 20% of the purchase price to be
paid upon their execution, with the balance of the consideration to be paid at

Upon completion of the transaction, each OSG subsidiary will enter into a bareboat charter of its vessel with ATC, and ATC will in turn enter into back-to-back time charters for each of the vessels with BP Exploration (Alaska) Inc. as charterers.
