Safe Harbor statements as to the future                                         
Matters discussed in this release may constitute forward-looking statements.    
 Forward-looking statements reflect our current views with respect to future    
 events and financial performance and may include statements concerning plans,  
 objectives, goals, strategies, future events or performance, and underlying    
 assumptions and statements other than statements of historical facts. The      
 forward-looking statements in this release are based upon various assumptions, 
 many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including without  
 limitation, management's examination of historical operating trends, data      
 contained in our records and other data available from third parties. Although 
 TORM believes that these assumptions were reasonable when made, because these  
 assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and            
 contingencies which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond our  
 control, TORM cannot guarantee that it will achieve or accomplish these        
 expectations, beliefs or projections.                                          
Important factors that, in our view, could cause actual results to differ       
 materially from those discussed in the forward- looking statements include the 
 conclusion of definitive waiver documents with our lenders, the strength of the
 world economy and currencies, changes in charter hire rates and vessel values, 
 changes in demand for 'tonne miles' of oil carried by oil tankers, the effect  
 of changes in OPEC's petroleum production levels and worldwide oil consumption 
 and storage, changes in demand that may affect attitudes of time charterers to 
 scheduled and unscheduled dry-docking, changes in TORM's operating expenses,   
 including bunker prices, dry-docking and insurance costs, changes in the       
 regulation of shipping operations, including requirements for double hull      
 tankers or actions taken by regulatory authorities, potential liability from   
 pending or future litigation, domestic and international political conditions, 
 potential disruption of shipping routes due to accidents and political events  
 or acts by terrorists.                                                         
Risks and uncertainties are further described in reports filed by TORM with the 
 US Securities and Exchange Commission, including the TORM Annual Report on Form
 20-F and its reports on Form 6-K.                                              
Forward-looking statements are based on management's current evaluation, and    
 TORM is only under an obligation to update and change the listed expectations  
 to the extent required by law.

mic AG: Millionen-Exit + Börsengang

Die mic AG erntet jetzt die Früchte ihrer Aufbauarbeit. Nach dem erfolgreichen Exit der Beteiligung neuroConn steht nun die Tochter micData AG vor dem Sprung an die Börse – und 2015 sollen weitere Börsengänge folgen. Noch hat die Börse das Potenzial des mic-Geschäftsmodells nicht erkannt. Der aktuelle Börsenwert von nur 16 Mio. Euro spiegelt das wahre Potenzial der mic-Gruppe nicht im Ansatz wieder, ist CEO Claus-Georg Müller im Interview mit financial.de überzeugt.
