"Diamond S Acquires Three Medium-Range Product Tankers from Carval Investors."

12/12/2013

New York, New York, December 12, 2013. Diamond S Shipping Group announced today that it had acquired three modern medium-range clean product tankers from funds managed by CarVal Investors. In the transaction, a group of funds managed by CarVal became a significant investor in the Diamond S clean product tanker business, and Ranjit Ahluwalia, managing director of CarVal, joined the Diamond S Board of Directors. Founded by Cargill Inc. in 1987, CarVal Investors is a global investment fund manager.

“With refined product exports from the U.S. ramping up as a result of the shale revolution in North America and ever-increasing globalization, we think that this is a good time to invest in clean product tankers,” said Wilbur Ross, Jr., Chairman of Diamond S. “With this transaction, we’ve expanded our clean product fleet to 33, one of the largest in the world, and added CarVal to our roster of world-class investors,” Ross said.
