Financial Performance

BW LPG Limited ("BW LPG", the "Company", OSE ticker code: "BWLPG.OL") reported a
Q3 2020 net profit after tax of USD 25 million and a YTD September 2020 net
profit after tax of USD 167 million, yielding a YTD September 2020 annualised
return on equity of 19% with USD 400 million of free cash flow. With a solid
cash flow, BW LPG paid down debt and reduced its net leverage ratio to 44% in Q3
2020, from 54% in Q3 2019.

Time Charter Equivalent (TCE) income amounted to USD 101 million in Q3 2020 and
USD 413 million in YTD September 2020. VLGC freight rates collapsed at the end
of the second quarter and recovered in a V-shaped trend. As guided in the Q2
earnings release, this made Q3 the weakest quarter in 2020.

EBITDA was USD 67 million for the quarter and USD 307 million for YTD September
2020, representing an EBITDA margin of approximately 66% and 74% respectively.
Earnings per share was USD 0.18 in Q3 2020 and USD 1.21 in YTD September 2020.

The Board has declared a Q3 2020 cash dividend of USD 0.15 per share amounting
to USD 21 million. With this dividend, BW LPG has paid USD 0.50 per share
to-date, representing about 42% of FY2020 YTD earnings per share. The shares
will be traded ex-dividend from 18 November 2020. The dividend will be payable
on or about 11 December 2020 to shareholders on record as of 19 November 2020.


Market Outlook

Q3 has proven to be the weakest quarter thus far in 2020. BW LPG remains
optimistic about the VLGC market for the rest of the year and we have also
upgraded our view for 2021. The VLGC freight market is strong and is supported
by resilient LPG exports out of the US, recovery in LPG exports from the Middle
East, and a widening arbitrage driven by strong demand and reduced fleet
availability.


Pioneering LPG Propulsion Technology

BW Gemini, the world's first VLGC to be retrofitted with pioneering LPG
propulsion technology, is now in operation. She is on a historic transpacific
crossing on LPG propulsion to the USA, where she will receive the largest ever
load of LPG on a single keel. BW LPG is proud to take the lead and advance
technology towards zero-carbon fuel propulsion.
