"Teekay benefited from its large portfolio of stable, fixed-rate business during the second quarter, allowing us to generate $130 million of cash flow from vessel operations during a quarter of weak spot tanker market rates," commented Bjorn Moller, Teekay Corporation's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The combination of our stable cash flows generated from fixed-rate offshore, liquefied gas and conventional tanker businesses, our more than $2 billion in consolidated liquidity and our favorable debt maturity profile contributes towards Teekay's financial strength."

Mr. Moller continued, "We remain focused on our key priorities which include reducing our exposure to the current weak spot tanker market, improving profitability through cost reductions and contract improvements and reducing leverage at Teekay Parent by executing on our strategy of selling assets to our daughter companies and third parties. Since the end of the first quarter, we have reduced our spot exposure through the redelivery of 12 spot traded in-charter vessels and the sale of four spot traded conventional tankers. We have begun to see significant results from our cost management initiatives through lower overhead and operating expenses in the second quarter, compared to the same period last year. In addition, we have now successfully completed follow-on equity offerings at each of our daughter companies this year raising a combined $238 million of equity capital used to finance dropdown acquisitions. We have recently offered the Petrojarl Varg FPSO to Teekay Offshore and, if accepted, this transaction will result in further significant de-leveraging of Teekay Parent's balance sheet, and will provide Teekay with further financial flexibility."

Mr. Moller added, "A key strength of our business model lies in our global project management activities and our ability to focus our attention on any given segment of our business where a new project may develop. Over the past decade, our successful project management business has seen us build our fixed-rate cash flow from vessel operations to over $550 million per year. Our ability to deliver value-added solutions to our customers gives us access to profitable, fixed-rate projects throughout the tanker cycle. An excellent example is our purchase this month of a modern product tanker against a specialized charter requirement. Upon completion of modification work, the vessel will commence a 10-year fixed-rate charter to Caltex Australia, a long-standing customer who outsourced its Australian marine operations to us in 1997."
