Company Description

Frontline Ltd. ("Frontline") has its origin in Frontline AB, which was founded in 1985, and which was listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange from 1989 to 1997. Hemen Holding Ltd. (a company indirectly controlled by trusts established by our Chairman John Fredriksen for the benefit of his immediate family) became the largest shareholder of Frontline AB in 1996. In May 1997, a decision was made at the general meeting in Frontline AB to change its domicile from Sweden to Bermuda and to list its shares on the Oslo Stock Exchange. The change of domicile was executed through a share for share exchange offer from the then newly formed Frontline in Bermuda. As a result of the acquisitions of vessels and shipping companies, Frontline has established itself as the world leader in the international seaborne transportation of crude oil, with one of the world's largest fleets of VLCC and Suezmax tankers and Suezmax OBO carriers. Frontline is committed to providing quality transportation services to all its customers and to developing and maintaining long-term relationships with the major charterers of tankers.
