Scorpio Tankers Inc. (NYSE: STNG) (the "Company") announced today that it intends to establish an “at the market” offering program (the “Program”) pursuant to which the Company may sell up to $100 million of its common shares, par value $0.01 per share. The Company expects to enter into an equity distribution agreement with a sales agent that has been identified by the Company, pursuant to which sales of the Company’s common shares may be made from time to time in transactions by means of ordinary broker transactions through the New York Stock Exchange or in negotiated transactions at market prices prevailing at the time of sale or as otherwise negotiated prices, or as otherwise agreed with the sales agent.
Sales of the Company’s common shares under the Program, if any, will be made pursuant to the Company’s effective shelf registration statement on Form F-3 (File No. 333-230469) by means of a prospectus supplement to be filed by the Company. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from any sales under the Program for general corporate and working capital purposes.
