ST. HELIER, Channel Islands –March 5, 2012–
DHT Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:DHT) (“DHT” or the “Company”) today announced:
DHT today confirmed that it has regained compliance with the New York Stock Exchange, Inc.’s (“NYSE”) continued listing standards.
On December 20, 2011, DHT received notice from the NYSE that the Company was no longer in compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing standards because the average closing price of the Company’s common stock was less than $1.00 per share over a consecutive 30 trading-day period. Pursuant to the NYSE’s rules, the Company had a six-month cure period following receipt of the NYSE notice to bring its share price and average share price above $1.00.
The Company received confirmation from the NYSE on March 2, 2012 that it had regained compliance after its average closing share price for the 30 trading days ended February 29, 2012 and its closing price on February 29, 2012 exceeded $1.00.
DHT operates a fleet of 12 double-hull crude oil tankers, of which 11 are wholly owned by the company. The fleet consists of six VLCCs, two Suezmax tankers and four Aframax tankers. Eight of the vessels are on medium-term time charters, two are on long-term bareboat charters and two are operating in the Tankers International Pool. For further information: www.dhtankers.com.
