13 December 2022 - Hamilton, Bermuda 


Reference is made to the stock exchange release by Northern Ocean Ltd. (the
"Company") on 13 December 2022 regarding the intention to carry out a private
placement (the "Private Placement") of new shares in the Company.

The Company is pleased to announce that the Private Placement has been
successfully placed, and that it has allocated subscriptions for 47,022,157
offer shares (the "Offer Shares") at a subscription price per share of NOK 9,50
(the "Offer Price"), raising approx. USD 45 million in gross proceeds. The
Private Placement attracted strong interest from existing and new Norwegian and
international high-quality investors and was substantially oversubscribed.

Completion of the Private Placement and the issuance of the new shares were
resolved by the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board") and conditional upon
the Offer Shares having been fully paid and legally issued. Following issuance
of the Offer Shares, the Company will have an issued share capital of USD
90,809,093 divided into 181,618,186 common shares, each with a nominal value of
USD 0.50.

Notification of allocation, including settlement instructions are expected to be
distributed by the Managers on or about 14 December 2022, with settlement on or
about 16 December 2022.

In order to facilitate timely delivery of already listed shares, delivery of
Offer Shares allocated in the Private Placement will be made by delivery of
existing shares in the Company borrowed by the Managers from Hemen Holding Ltd.
("Hemen") pursuant to a share lending agreement between such parties and the
Company. The shares delivered to investors in the Private Placement will thus be
tradable on Oslo Børs immediately upon allocation. The Managers will settle the
share loan from Hemen with the new shares issued in connection with the Private
Placement. The new shares will be registered under a separate ISIN pending
approval of a listing prospectus and will not be listed or tradable on Oslo Børs
until this prospectus has been approved.

The Board will consider carrying out a subsequent offering of up to 2,500,000
new shares towards the Company's shareholders as of 13 December 2022 (as
documented by the shareholder register in the Norwegian Central Securities
Depository (VPS) as of the end of 15 December 2022) who i) were not allocated
shares in the Private Placement (the "Subsequent Offering") and ii) are not
resident in a jurisdiction where such offering would be unlawful, or for
jurisdictions other than Norway, would require any filing, registration or
similar action. The subscription price in the Subsequent Offering will be equal
to the subscription price in the Private Placement. The Subsequent Offering is
subject to i) the publication of a prospectus approved by the Norwegian
Financial Supervisory Authority, and ii) the prevailing market price of the
Company's shares following the Private Placement. The Board may decide that the
Subsequent Offering will not be carried out in the event that the Company's
shares trade below the subscription price in the Subsequent Offering at adequate

The Board, together with the Company's management and the Managers, has
considered various transaction alternatives to secure new financing. Based on an
overall assessment, considering inter alia the need for funding, execution risk
and possible alternatives, the Board has on the basis of careful considerations
decided that the Private Placement is the alternative that best protects the
Company's and the shareholders' joint interests. Thus, the waiver of the
preferential rights inherent in a share capital increase through issuance of new
shares is considered necessary.

Norwegian Branch and Pareto Securities AS acted as Joint Lead Bookrunners in the
Private Placement. This stock exchange announcement was published by Jonas
Ytreland, CFO of Northern Ocean Ltd., on 13 December 2022 at 23.00 CET.
