Navig8 Chemical Tankers (A-Ships) Inc issued US$93,029,972 in aggregate principal amount guaranteed amortising notes due 2027 (the “Notes”) in a private offering to institutional buyers outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S of the Securities Act of 1933.

Navig8 Chemical Tankers (A-Ships) Inc is a 100% subsidiary of Navig8 Chemical Tankers Inc (the “Company”).

Payment of 100% of all regularly scheduled instalments of principal of, and interest on, the Notes will be guaranteed by KEXIM. The Notes are being issued in connection with the credit facility announced by the Company on 3 February 2015 (the “Credit Facility”) and replace the bank notes previously issued by certain lenders under the Credit Facility. The initial amount of that Credit Facility was US$390 million, and the purpose of the facility was to finance the acquisition of 18 x 37,300 dwt chemical tankers.
