GC Rieber Shipping: GC Rieber Shipping - first quarter 2014 results

GC Rieber Shipping maintains stable and good operations, and delivers a good
result for the first quarter.

Total fleet utilisation was 89 percent in the quarter, down from 100 percent
in the corresponding period in 2013. The decrease is related to a planned
yard stay for the upgrading of "Polar Marquis", which will be ready for
operations second half of May 2014.

Operating revenues for the first quarter 2014 was NOK 167.9 million, down from
NOK 181.0 million in the first quarter 2013. EBITDA ended at NOK 74.9
million, compared to NOK 89.8 million, and corresponds to an EBITDA margin of
45 percent. The decrease is mainly related to reduced revenues following the
sale of "HMS Protector" in September 2013, and the rebuilding of "Polar
Marquis".

During the quarter, GC Rieber Shipping has sold its share in Reef Subsea and
taken delivery of the vessel "Polar Onyx".

GC Rieber Shipping had a profit of NOK 41.8 million in the first quarter,
compared to NOK 11.2 million in the corresponding period in 2013.

"First quarter past without any operational surprises, and the result was as
expected. We have restructured our portfolio and strengthened the focus on
the core business",
comments CEO Irene Waage Basili.
