*adjusted for impairment charges of $56 million in 2011, $92.5 million in Q3 2012 and $8.0 million in Q4 2012.

** adjusted for loss on sale of vessels in Q1 and Q2 2012, non-cash impairment charge in 2011, Q3 2012 and Q4 2012 and non-cash swap related items. EPS is calculated assuming all preferred shares issued on May 3, 2012 have been exchanged for common stock and applying the 12:1 reverse stock split which was effective on July 17, 2012 retrospectively.

*** per common share. Historical dividend per share adjusted for 12:1 reverse split.

**** as % of total operating days in period.

Highlights of the quarter:

* EBITDA for the quarter of $9.8 million and net income for the quarter of $1.7 million ($0.11 per share) after adjusting for non-cash impairment charge of $8 million. Net cash provided by operating activities for the quarter was $3.4 million.

* The Company will pay a dividend of $0.02 per common share and $0.28 per preferred share for the quarter payable on February 19, 2013 for shareholders of record as of February 11, 2013. When determining the dividend our Board has taken into account general business conditions, the continued weak tanker market as well as the chapter 11 filing by Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. and certain of its affiliates (collectively, "OSG") and subsequent rejection of the Company's two long term bareboat charters.

* As a result of OSG filing for chapter 11, the Company's two long-term bareboat charters for its two Suezmax vessels have been rejected. The vessels were redelivered to DHT on December 23, 2012 and January 15, 2013 and they are currently trading in the spot market. DHT will have a claim against the OSG bankruptcy estate related to the rejection of these contracts, which are guaranteed by Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc.. The Company has not reflected such claim and the potential recovery in the financial statements as of December 31, 2012.

* DHT has entered into time charter contracts for the VLCCs DHT Ann and DHT Chris and the Aframax DHT Cathy in January 2013. The time charters are entered into with end-users, have durations up to one year and have a mix of fixed rates and market related earnings. The DHT Eagle is on a time charter until May 2013. The remaining vessels are operating in the spot market.

* Following the fleet appraisal for the fourth quarter, DHT repaid $4.0 million under the RBS credit facility in October. Following the fleet appraisal conducted in early January 2013, DHT repaid $9.0 million in January. The next scheduled principal installment under the RBS facility is in Q1 2016.

* The Company is in compliance with its loan facilities and had an unencumbered cash balance of $71.3 million (or $4.63 per share) as of December 31, 2012. The Company has no scheduled principal installments under its three credit facilities in 2013 and 2014. Scheduled principal installments under the DVB and DNB credit facilities total $4.9 million in 2015. However, further decline in vessel values may result in additional prepayments in order to remain in compliance with minimum value covenants.

* Due to the likelihood of a potential sale of one of its vessels, the Company adjusted the carrying value of its fleet through a non-cash impairment charge of $8.0 million.
