SEATTLE and TAMPA, Fla., June 17, 2024 — Saltchuk Resources, Inc. (“Saltchuk”) and Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. (NYSE:OSG) (“OSG”) announced that on June 10, 2024, Saltchuk’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Seahawk MergeCo., Inc. (“Purchaser”), commenced its tender offer (the “Offer”) for all issued and outstanding shares of Class A common stock (“Shares”) of OSG at a price of $8.50 per Share in cash, subject to any applicable tax withholding and without interest (the “Offer Price”). The Offer is being made in connection with the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of May 19, 2024, by and among Saltchuk, Purchaser and OSG (the “Merger Agreement”), which Saltchuk and OSG announced on May 20, 2024.

The OSG Board of Directors has unanimously determined that the Merger Agreement and Offer are fair to and in the best interests of OSG’s stockholders. The OSG Board of Directors also recommends that the stockholders of OSG tender their shares to Purchaser pursuant to the Offer.

The Offer will expire one minute after 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on July 9, 2024, unless extended or earlier terminated. Instructions to tender Shares are being communicated to stockholders through Georgeson LLC, the information agent for the Offer, or the institution or brokerage that holds Shares on the stockholder’s behalf.

Purchaser’s obligation to accept and pay for Shares tendered in the Offer is subject to conditions, including satisfaction of a minimum tender condition and other customary conditions for transactions of this type. After the completion of the Offer and the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, Purchaser will merge with and into OSG, with OSG continuing as the surviving entity (the “Merger”). As a result of the Merger, outstanding Shares will generally be cancelled and converted into the right to receive an amount equal to the Offer Price, and OSG will cease to be a publicly traded company and will become wholly-owned by Saltchuk.
