The acquisition of Gener8 resulted in the recognition of a gain on bargain purchase on business combination of USD 36.3 million being recorded in the consolidated statement of profit or loss in the second quarter, says Euronav.

The largest NYSE listed independent crude oil tanker company in the world said that it booked a gain on bargain purchase as a result of the Net Assets acquired being higher than the consideration paid.

Paddy Rodgers, CEO of Euronav said: "Completion of the Gener8 merger during the second quarter of 2018 reflected a huge amount of work by Euronav and provides the Company with a market leading large tanker platform of over 70 vessels. Demand for and supply of crude oil remain resilient, boosted recently by a directional change from key OPEC participants and well supported by expansion in ton miles, elevated recycling activity and impending regulatory change.

However, the rebalancing of the tanker market requires further affirmative action in reducing primarily older tonnage, restraint from contracting and a supportive oil price structure. Euronav remains confident on the medium term prospects for the large tanker market and today we see some short term improvements in the supply of both crude and tankers."

On June 11, 2018 Gener8's shareholders approved the merger between the two companies. Upon closing the merger, Gener8 became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Euronav. Holders of 81% of the outstanding shares of Gener8 cast their vote, and of those 98% approved the merger.

The Combined Entity balance sheet assets of over USD 4 billion has marked-to-market leverage of less than 50% with the Company retaining around USD 758 million of liquidity as at the end of June 2018.
