used to repurchase bonds at 50 % discount).

Furthermore, DOF would convert all bond loans of NOK ~2,000 million to a NOK 1,000 million subordinated convertible bond (at 50% of par value); Soften the secured debt terms in “DOF Rederi” by reducing installment by 75 % on 27 vessels, and implement further cost-cutting measures, including reduction of staff, salary and benefits.
