negotiated and agreed with the bondholders in the senior unsecured
bond in VSS A/S and that terms for the bareboat charter of Odin
Viking are re-negotiated and amended.

an impairment loss during Q2 2016 of MSEK 145 related to the PSV
fleet.

for the Ice-class 1A AHTS vessel Njord Viking. The vessel has been

the extended towing-preparedness in the area on behalf of the
Norwegian Coastal Administration. The vessel was according to the

periods of 2 x 6 months thereafter. According to the contract VSS A/S

vessel in the North Sea spot market, while also searching for
alternative contracts for the vessel.
