Teekay Tankers Ltd. has agreed to acquire a fleet of 12 modern Suezmax tankers currently owned by Principal Maritime Tankers (Principal), a portfolio company of funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, LLC, for an aggregate purchase price of $662 million.

The acquisition is expected to be immediately accretive to Teekay Tankers' earnings, free cash flow and net asset value per share and, when combined with the Company's existing fleet of 10 Suezmaxes, will make Teekay Tankers one of the largest owners of Suezmax tankers in the world. With an average age of only 5.5 years, the 12 Suezmaxes to be acquired will reduce the average age of Teekay Tankers' fleet by 1.2 years. The vessels included in the transaction are scheduled to deliver to Teekay Tankers by the end of October 2015 and are expected to operate in the spot tanker market upon or soon after delivery.
