Important factors that, in our view, could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements include the strength of world economies and currencies, general market conditions, including fluctuations in charter rates and vessel values, changes in demand in the tanker market, as a result of changes in OPEC’s petroleum production levels and worldwide oil consumption and storage, changes in our operating expenses, including bunker prices, drydocking and insurance costs, the market for our vessels, availability of financing and refinancing, changes in governmental rules and regulations or actions taken by regulatory authorities, potential liability from pending or future litigation, general domestic and international political conditions, potential disruption of shipping routes due to accidents or political events, vessels breakdowns and instances of off-hires and other important factors described from time to time in the reports filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the prospectus and related prospectus supplement, our Annual Report on Form 20-F, and our reports on Form 6-K.

    Nordic American Tankers Ltd (NYSE: NAT) – Comments on the opening of the Suez Canal

    Tuesday, April 6, 2021 Dear Shareholders and Investors, On 24th of March 2021, one of the largest ships in the world blocked the Suez Canal. The ship was blocking the canal until Monday, March 29, about a week after the closure. Already Thursday, March 25, we commented on the blocking of the Suez Canal. Thereafter, when the canal was opened, tanker rates fell back, although slightly less than the original increase. The immediate strong increase in tanker rates due to this short blockage of the Suez Canal, is an illustration of a market nearing a boiling point. Long before the Suez Canal was closed, we saw a strong increase in rates for our Suezmax tankers which can load one million barrels. The strategic position of our company has been substantially improved over the last two years. We have 24 ships trading on short term contracts, whilst one ship is on a longer term contract. There is a strong drive in the market, indicating an improvement in the time to come. We have recently seen this improvement, having concluded contracts giving rates between USD 15,000 a day up to USD 25,000 a day. In the weeks rather than months ahead, we expect an increase in rates for our ships. This development has already started. Sincerely, Herbjorn HanssonFounder, Chairman & CEO Nordic American Tankers Ltd. www.nat.bm CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS Matters discussed in this press release may constitute forward-looking statements.
