First Quarter 2014 Financials We reported shipping revenues for the first quarter of 2014 of $24.5 million compared to shipping revenues of $19.2 million in the first quarter of 2013. The increase was mainly due to an improvement in rates. Voyage expenses for the first quarter of 2014 were $6.6 million, compared to voyage expenses of $6.9 million in the first quarter of 2013. Vessel operating expenses for the first quarter of 2014 were $7.5 million, compared to $5.4 million in the first quarter of 2013. The increase was mainly due to certain non-recurring positive items in the first quarter of 2013 related to the redelivery of vessels from OSG and startup cost related to the delivery of DHT Hawk and DHT Falcon in the first quarter of 2014. Depreciation and amortization, including depreciation of capitalized survey expenses, was $7.0 million for the first quarter 2014, unchanged from the first quarter of 2013. General & administrative expense (“G&A”) for the first quarter of 2014 was $2.7 million compared to $2.2 million in the first quarter of 2013. G&A for the first quarter of 2014 reflects performance related compensation for 2013 and high level of activity during the quarter in connection with equity offering, acquisition of vessels and ordering of newbuildings. Net financial expenses for the first quarter of 2014 were $1.1 million, compared to $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2013. We had a net loss in the first quarter of 2014 of $0.5 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to a loss of $3.7 million, or $0.24 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2013. The improvement was mainly due to an increase in shipping revenues. Net cash provided by operating activities for the first quarter of 2014 was $10.1 million compared to $14.3 million for the prior-year period. The decline is mainly related to $6.9 million in deferred income in the first quarter of 2013 in connection with the sale of the OSG claim and increase in bunkers inventory in the first quarter of 2014 offset by a lower loss in the first quarter of 2014 and an increase in accounts payable in the first quarter of 2014. Net cash used by investing activities for the first quarter of 2014 was $178.0 million, compared to $0.8 million for the prior-year period. The increase was due to the acquisition of two VLCCs totaling $99.0 million, pre-delivery installments of $77.2 million related to VLCC newbuildings ordered and capitalized drydock cost totaling $1.9 million. As of March 31, 2014, the Company had made $114.3 million in predelivery payments related to the six newbuilding contracts entered into in December 2013 and January and February 2014. The remaining payments are expected to be $57.0 million for the remainder of 2014, $135.9 million in 2015 and $266.1 million in 2016. Net cash provided by financing activities for the first quarter of 2014 was $261.9 million, compared to $9.3 million used in financing activities for the prior-year period. In the first quarter of 2014 we completed a registered direct offering of 30,300,000 shares generating net proceeds of $215.9 million after expenses and issued long term debt of $47.4 million. In the first quarter of 2013 we made a repayment of long term debt totaling $9.0 million. At the end of the first quarter of 2014, our cash balance was $220.0 million, compared to $75.5 million at the end of the first quarter 2013. We declared a cash dividend of $0.02 per common share for the first quarter of 2014 payable on May 22, 2014 for shareholders of record as of May 14, 2014. When determining the dividend our Board has taken into account the general business conditions. As of March 31, 2014, we had 69,416,381 shares of our common stock outstanding compared to 29,040,975 as of December 31, 2013. The increase is mainly a result of the issue of 30,300,000 shares of common stock and the exchange 97,579 Series B Participating Preferred Stock into 9,757,900 shares of common stock during the first quarter of 2014. We monitor our covenant compliance on an ongoing basis. Decline in vessel values could result in our company no longer being in compliance with our minimum value covenants. Such non-compliance could result in us making pre-payments under our credit agreements. As of the date of our most recent compliance certificates submitted for the first quarter of 2014, we remain in compliance with our financial covenants. Second-hand tanker values can be highly volatile. We will assess the market value of our fleet in subsequent quarters and, depending on second-hand values at those times, may be required to pay down a portion of our indebtedness to banks in accordance with the terms of our outstanding credit facilities.

The condensed financial statements have been prepared on a historical cost basis, except for derivative financial instruments that have been measured at fair value.

Consequently, the Company has one operating segment as defined in IFRS 8, Operating Segments. Information about major customers: As of March 31, 2014, six of the Company’s ten vessels were on charter, pursuant to time charters to different customers for periods up to 15 months. One vessel operate in a commercial pool and three vessels operated in the spot market. For the period from January 1, 2014 to March 31, 2014, four customers represented $5.9 million, $4.9 million, $2.9 million and $2.5 million, respectively, of the Company’s revenues. For the period from January 1, 2013 to March 31, 2013, four customers represented $3.2 million, $2.7 million, $1.9 million and $1.8 million, respectively, of the Company’s revenues. Note 4 – Interest bearing debt On February 10, 2014 we entered into a credit facility for up to $50.0 million with DNB, as lender, and DHT Holdings, Inc. as guarantor for the financing of the acquisition of the two vessels, DHT Falcon and DHT Hawk. Borrowings bear interest at a rate equal to Libor + 3.25% and are repayable in 20 quarterly installments of $1.0 million from May 2014 to February 2019 and a final payment of $29.0 million in February 2019. The credit facility is guaranteed by DHT and contains a covenant requiring that at all times the charter-free market value of the vessels that secure the credit facility be no less than 135% of borrowings. Also, DHT covenants that, throughout the term of the credit facility, DHT, on a consolidated basis, shall maintain value adjusted tangible net worth of $150 million, value adjusted tangible net worth shall be at least 25% of value adjusted total assets and unencumbered consolidated cash of at least the higher of (i) $20 million and (ii) 6% of our gross interest bearing debt with value adjusted defined as an adjustment to reflect the difference between the carrying amount and the market valuations of the Company’s vessels (as determined quarterly by an approved broker). As of March 31, 2014, DHT had interest bearing debt totaling $205.4 million, of which $113.3 million is priced at Libor+1.75%, $18.4 million is priced at Libor+3.00%, $24.8 million is priced at Libor+2.75% and $49.0 million is priced at Libor + 3.25%. Interest is payable quarterly in arrears. As of March 31, 2014, three month Libor was 0.23%. In March 2012 we entered into agreements to amend the credit agreements related to DHT Phoenix and DHT Eagle. The agreements were amended whereby, upon satisfaction of certain conditions, including the prepayment of $6.7 million and $6.9 million (equal to all scheduled installments through 2014), respectively, until and including December 31, 2014: (i) the “Value-to-Loan Ratio” will be lowered from 130% to 120%; and (ii) the margin on the loans will be increased by 0.25% to 3.00% and 2.75%, respectively. These two credit facilities also contain financial covenants related to each of the borrowers as well as DHT on a consolidated basis. DHT covenants that, throughout the term of the credit agreements, DHT on a consolidated basis shall maintain unencumbered cash of at least $20 million, value adjusted tangible net worth of at least $100 million and value adjusted tangible net worth of no less than 25% of the value adjusted total assets. In April 2013 the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, DHT Maritime, Inc., amended its credit agreement with the Royal Bank of Scotland (“RBS”) whereby the minimum value covenant has been removed in its entirety. Furthermore, the installments scheduled to commence in 2016 have been changed from a fixed $9.1 million per quarter to a variable amount equal to free cash flow in the prior quarter – capped at $7.5 million per quarter. Free cash flow is defined as an amount calculated as of the last day of each quarter equal to the positive difference, if any, between: the sum of the earnings of the vessels during the quarter and the sum of ship operating expenses, voyage expenses, estimated capital expenses for the following two quarters, general & administrative expenses, interest expenses and change in working capital. The next scheduled installment would at the earliest take place in Q2 2016. In April 2013 the Company made a prepayment of $25 million and the margin has increased to 1.75%. DHT Maritime’s financial obligations under the credit agreement are guaranteed by DHT Holdings, Inc.. As of the date of our most recent compliance certificates submitted for the first quarter of 2014, we remain in compliance with our financial covenants. Scheduled debt repayments (USD million) *Commencing with the second quarter of 2016, subject to a free cash flow calculation, we will be required to pay installments under the RBS credit facility equal to free cash flow (after adjusting for capital expenditures for the next two quarters) for DHT Maritime, Inc. during the preceding quarter, capped at $7.5 million per quarter. Note 5 – Vessels The carrying values of our vessels may not represent their fair market value at any point in time since the market prices of second-hand vessels tend to fluctuate with changes in charter rates and the cost of constructing new vessels. Historically, both charter rates and vessel values have been cyclical. The carrying amounts of vessels held and used by us are reviewed for potential impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of a particular vessel may not be fully recoverable. The Company has performed an impairment test using the “value in use” method as of March 31, 2014. In assessing “value in use”, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value. In developing estimates of future cash flows, we must make significant assumptions about future charter rates, future use of vessels, ship operating expenses, drydocking expenditures, utilization rate, fixed commercial and technical management fees, residual value of vessels, the estimated remaining useful lives of the vessels and the discount rate. These assumptions are based on current market conditions, historical trends as well as future expectations. Estimated outflows for ship operating expenses and drydocking expenditures are based on a combination of historical and budgeted costs and are adjusted for assumed inflation. Utilization, including estimated off-hire time, is based on historical experience. Although management believes that the assumptions used to evaluate potential impairment are reasonable and appropriate, such assumptions are subjective. The impairment test did not result in a non-cash impairment charge in the first quarter of 2014. The impairment test has been performed using an estimated weighted average cost of capital of 8.86%. *Accumulated numbers **Relates to the acquisition of the DHT Hawk and DHT Falcon and the docking of the DHT Cathy. Vessels under construction During the first quarter of 2014 we entered into agreements with HHI for the construction of four VLCCs with contract prices of $92.7 million, $97.3 million, $98.8 million and $98.8 million, respectively and paid 20% pre-delivery installment relating to these vessels totaling $76.9 million. The following table is a timeline of future expected payments and dates relating to vessels under construction as of March 31, 2014*: *These are estimates only and are subject to change as construction progresses. Note 6 – Equity Offerings Private Placement On November 24, 2013, we entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement among us and the investors named therein (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”) pursuant to which we agreed to sell approximately $110 million of our equity to institutional investors in a Private Placement (the “Private Placement”). The equity included 13,400,000 shares of our common stock and 97,579 shares of a new series of our preferred stock, the Series B Participating Preferred Stock. The closing of the Private Placement occurred on November 29, 2013, and the Private Placement generated net proceeds to us of approximately $106.7 million (after placement agent expenses, but before other transaction expenses). We called a special meeting of our shareholders of record as of December 13, 2013 to consider an amendment to our amended and restated articles of incorporation to increase the authorized number of shares of our common stock to 150,000,000 shares and to increase the authorized number of shares of our capital stock to 151,000,000. The special meeting took place on January 20, 2014 and our stockholders voted in favor of the amendment to our amended and restated articles of incorporation, and such amendment was filed with the Republic of Marshall Islands on January 20, 2014. As a result of such stockholder approval and the filing of such amendment, each share of our Series B Participating Preferred Stock was mandatorily converted into 100 shares of our common stock at a 1:100 ratio on February 4, 2014. Registered Direct Offering On February 5, 2014 we completed a registered direct offering of 30,300,000 shares generating net proceeds of approximately $215.9 million. Note 7 – Stockholders equity and dividend payment Common stock: Each outstanding share of common stock entitles the holder to one vote on all matters submitted to a vote of stockholders. Preferred stock: Terms and rights of preferred shares will be established by the board when or if such shares would be issued. Series B Under the terms of the Private Placement that closed in November 2013, 97,579 shares of Series B Participating Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share, were designated and issued by the Company. The Series B Participating Preferred Stock participated with the common stock in all dividend payments and distributions in respect of the common stock (other than dividends and distributions of common stock or subdivisions of the outstanding common stock) pro rata, based on each share of the Series B Participating Preferred Stock equaling 100 shares of common stock. In addition, one share of issued and outstanding Series B Participating Preferred Stock equaled 100 shares of common stock for purposes of voting rights. On February 4, 2014, all issued and outstanding shares of our Series B Participating Preferred Stock were mandatorily exchanged into shares of common stock at a 1:100 ratio. *Total payment on May 23, 2013 includes $0.25 per Series A Participating Preferred Stock. **Total payment on February 19, 2013 includes $0.28 per Series A Participating Preferred Stock. Note 8 – Accounts receivable A significant part of the accounts receivable as of March 31, 2014 relates to working capital for vessels operating in commercial pools and in the spot market. Note 9 - Financial risk management, objectives and policies Note 9 in the 2013 annual report on Form 20-F provides for details of financial risk management objectives and policies. The Company’s principal financial liability consists of long-term debt with the main purpose being to finance the Company’s assets and operations. The Company’s financial assets mainly comprise cash. The Company is exposed to market risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. The Company’s senior management oversees the management of these risks. Note 10—OSG Bankruptcy and Claims In connection with the Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing by OSG and certain of its affiliates commenced on November 14, 2012, OSG subsequently rejected our two long-term Suezmax bareboat charters with the approval of the presiding bankruptcy court. We and certain of our affiliates filed claims against OSG and certain of its affiliates, including two subsidiaries of OSG, Dignity Chartering Corporation (“Dignity”) and Alpha Suezmax Corporation (“Alpha” and together with Dignity and OSG, the “Debtors”), for damages arising from the Debtors’ rejection of the bareboat charter agreements for the Overseas Newcastle (now known as the DHT Target) and Overseas London (now known as the DHT Trader), respectively, and against OSG on account of its guarantees of the obligations of Dignity and Alpha, respectively, under each of the respective bareboat charter agreements (collectively, the “Claims”). We entered into Assignment of Claims Agreements with Citigroup Financial Products Inc. (“Citigroup”) on March 14, 2013 in connection with the Claims whereby Citigroup agreed to purchase the undivided 100% interest in our right and title and interest in the Claims for a purchase price equal to 33.25% of the amount of the claim ultimately allowed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court (the “Court”). We received an aggregate initial payment of approximately $6.9 million from Citigroup in the first quarter of 2013. In November 2013, DHT and OSG agreed to a final claim amount of $46 million. The amount was approved by the Court on December 19, 2013 and Citigroup made the final payment of $8.5 million on January 7, 2014. This amount was recorded as an accounts receivables as of December 31, 2013. The final payment of $8.5 million combined with the $6.9 million paid in February 2013 totaling $15.4 million was recorded as shipping revenues in Q4 2013. Separately we filed six further claims in the amount of $3.4 million plus attorneys’ fees against various affiliates of OSG, and OSG as guarantor of each claim on or about May 30, 2013. In November 2013 DHT and OSG agreed to a final claim amount of $1.5 million related to these claims. The amount, timing and form of a recovery is not known and we have not recorded any amount related to a recovery in our financial statements as of March 31, 2014.
