INTERNATIONAL SEAWAYS, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)

Note 1 - Basis of Presentation:

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of International Seaways, Inc. ("INSW"), a Marshall Islands corporation, and its wholly owned subsidiaries. As of September 30, 2021, the Company owned and operated a fleet of 89 oceangoing vessels, including two vessels that have been chartered-in under operating leases for durations exceeding one year at inception and four vessels in which the Company has interests through its joint ventures, engaged primarily in the transportation of crude oil and refined petroleum products in the International Flag trade through its wholly owned subsidiaries. In addition to its operating fleet of 89 vessels, three dual-fuel LNG VLCC newbuilds are scheduled for delivery to the Company in the first quarter of 2023, bringing the total operating and newbuild fleet to 92 vessels as of September 30, 2021. Subsequent to September 30, 2021, the Company chartered-in an LR1 (see Note 15, "Leases") and sold and delivered a Panamax to buyers (see Note 6, "Vessels"). Unless the context indicates otherwise, references to "INSW", the "Company", "we", "us" or "our", refer to International Seaways, Inc. and its subsidiaries.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. They do not include all of the information and notes required by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the results have been included. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021.

The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2020 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and notes required by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States for complete financial statements. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

All intercompany balances and transactions within INSW have been eliminated. Investments in 50% or less owned affiliated companies, in which INSW exercises significant influence, are accounted for by the equity method.

Note 2 - Merger Transaction:

Completion of Merger Transaction

On July 16, 2021 (the "Effective Time"), pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") dated as of March 30, 2021, by and among INSW, Diamond S Shipping Inc., a Republic of the Marshall Islands corporation ("Diamond S"), and Dispatch Transaction Sub, Inc., a Republic of the Marshall Islands corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of INSW ("Merger Sub"), Merger Sub merged with and into Diamond S (the "Merger"), with Diamond S surviving such merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of INSW. Immediately following the Effective Time, the Company contributed all of the outstanding stock of Diamond S to International Seaways Operating Corporation, a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

At the Effective Time, each common share of Diamond S (the "Diamond S Common Shares") issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (excluding Diamond S Common Shares owned by Diamond S, the Company, Merger Sub or any of their respective direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries) was cancelled in exchange for the right to receive 0.55375of a share of common stock of the Company (the "INSW Common Stock") and cash payable in respect of fractional shares. The aforementioned 0.55375exchange ratio set forth in the Merger Agreement resulted in the issuance of 22,536,647shares of INSW Common Stock, with the pre-merger INSW shareholders and the former Diamond S shareholders owning approximately 55.75%and 44.25%, respectively, of the 50,674,393issued and outstandingcommon stock of the Company immediately following the Effective Time.

As provided for under the terms of the Merger Agreement, on July 15, 2021, prior to the Effective Time, INSW paid a special dividend to its shareholders of record as of July 14, 2021 in an aggregate amount equal to $31.5million ($1.12per share).

On May 27, 2021, the Company entered into Amendment and Restatement Agreements with (i) Diamond S, Nordea Bank Abp, New York Branch, as Administrative Agent, and the lenders constituting the Required Lenders under that certain credit agreement of Diamond S first dated as of March 27, 2019 (the "$360Million Credit Agreement") in order to amend and restate Diamond S' $360Million Credit Agreement (as amended and restated, the "Amended and Restated $360Million Credit Agreement") and (ii) Diamond S, Nordea Bank Abp, New York Branch, as Administrative Agent, and the lenders constituting the Required Lenders under that certain credit agreement of Diamond S, first dated as of December 23, 2019 (the "$525Million Credit Agreement"), in order to amend and restate Diamond S' $525Million Credit Agreement (as amended and restated, the "Amended and Restated $525Million Credit Agreement" and together with the Amended and Restated $360Million Credit Agreement, the "Amendment and Restatement Agreements"). On May 27, 2021, the Company executed a guarantee of Diamond S' obligations under each of the Amended and Restated $360Million Credit Agreement and the Amended and Restated $525Million Credit Agreement (the "INSW Guarantees").

At the Effective Time, as a result of the consummation of the Merger, and following the payment by Diamond S of fees required to be paid to the lenders, the Amendment and Restatement Agreements and INSW Guarantees became effective.

Directors and Certain Officers

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, following the Effective Time, the Company now has a board of directors (the "Board") consisting of tendirectors comprised of (i) a chairman, Douglas D. Wheat, designated by the Company, (ii) sixadditional directors, designated by the Company and (iii) threeadditional directors, designated by Diamond S.

Effective as of the Effective Time, as contemplated by the Merger Agreement to permit threedirectors designated by Diamond S to serve on the Board, Mr. Ty E. Wallach resigned as a member of the Board. Mr. Wallach was a member of the Human Resources and Compensation committee of the Board. In connection with his resignation from the Board, the Board approved the accelerated vesting of his 5,035shares of restricted INSW Common Stock.

The three vacancies created by the resignation of Mr. Wallach and the expansion of the Board were filled by the Board with Mr. Craig H. Stevenson, Jr., Mrs. A. Kate Blankenship and Mr. Nadim Qureshi, the threedirectors designated by Diamond S in accordance with the Merger Agreement. Each of Mr. Stevenson, Mrs. Blankenship and Mr. Qureshi was a director of Diamond S immediately prior to the Effective Time and will serve as a member of the Board until the Company's 2022 annual meeting of stockholders or until his or her earlier death, resignation or removal. During this period, Mrs. Blankenship will also serve as a member of the Audit Committee of the Board and Mr. Qureshi will serve on the Human Resources and Compensation Committee of the Board.

Each of Mr. Stevenson, Mrs. Blankenship and Mr. Qureshi will be compensated in accordance with the director compensation program as described in the Company's definitive Proxy Statement filed with the SEC on May 5, 2021 (reduced on an appropriate pro rata basis with respect to service in 2021). In connection with joining the Board, Mr. Stevenson, Mrs. Blankenship and Mr. Qureshi entered into customary indemnification agreements with the Company.

On July 14, 2021, in connection with the consummation of the Merger, the Company entered into a letter agreement with Mr. Stevenson. (the "Letter Agreement"). The Letter Agreement provides that during the period from July 14, 2021, until the earlier of six months following such date and the date of termination of such engagement, in addition to serving as a director, Mr. Stevenson will provide services to the Company as special advisor to the Chief Executive Officer of the Company. During the advisory period, Mr. Stevenson will receive a total consulting fee equal to $0.5million, paid in equal monthly installments, subject to reduction in the case of certain termination of services events prior to the expiration of such six-month period. As of September 30, 2021, $0.2million of such fee was paid for his services.

Following the Merger, the senior management of INSW remain in their current roles and lead the Company.

Accounting for the Merger

Based on the terms of the Merger Agreement, the Merger was determined to not meet the requirements of a business combination under the guidelines of ASC 805, Business Combinations, and ASU 2017-01, Business Combinations (Topic 805). The Merger consists of acquiring vessels and associated assets and liabilities, which are concentrated in a group of similar identifiable assets, and therefore not considered a business. As a result, the Merger is treated as an asset acquisition, whereby all assets acquired and liabilities assumed are recorded at the cost of the acquisition, including transaction costs, on the basis of their relative fair value.

The following table presents a summary of how the consideration paid by INSW for the net assets acquired was determined:

(a) Unvested Diamond S restricted stock awards of 131,845as of the Effective Time were assumed by INSW and replaced with INSW restricted stock awards of 72,994, after giving effect to the exchange ratio and appropriate adjustments to reflect the consummation of the Merger. ASC 805, Business Combinations, requires an allocation of the fair-value-based measure of a replacement award to pre-combination service and post-combination service, with the value attributable to pre-combination service included in the consideration transferred and the value attributable to post-combination service recognized as compensation cost by the acquirer. The fair-value-based measure of such replacement award attributable to post-combination service was determined to be $0.6million.
(b) ASC 805 requires an evaluation of all consideration transferred by the acquirer to identify the inclusion of any payments that might be related to goods and services that are separate from the combination. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Diamond S' management services agreements with Capital Ship Management Corp ("CSMC") were terminated and a termination fee of approximately $31.1million was paid by Diamond S. As INSW is the recipient of the future economic benefits of such restructuring activities, such termination fee is deemed to be a cost incurred by the acquiree on behalf of the acquirer and is considered as part of the consideration transferred that is not related to the fair value of the net assets acquired. As a result, the consideration transferred allocated to the net assets acquired was reduced by termination fee amount.

Supplemental cash flow information for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 associated with the stock-for-stock acquisition of vessels and associated assets and liabilities aggregating $328.9million were non-cash investing activities. The Company incurred and paid $0.1 million and $0.8 million in equity issuance costs during the three and nine months ended September 31, 2021, respectively.

The $1,271.0million value of the 64vessels acquired is comprised of (i) $1,259.6million in vessel fair values assessed in accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement, using an average of current valuations obtained from third-party vessel appraisals, (ii) $6.6 million of the initial lube oil inventory on board the vessels on the acquisition date and (iii) $4.8 million in deposits for ballast water treatment system installations. Deferred drydock expenditures are taken into consideration in the vessel appraisals obtained to determine the market values of the vessels acquired and are therefore not identified as a separate asset acquired. In accordance with the requirements of accounting for the Merger as an asset acquisition, the value of the vessels was adjusted down to $941.3 million after the allocation of the $340.5 million excess of net assets acquired over the consideration transferred by INSW and the capitalization of approximately $10.8 million of legal, advisory and other professional fees directly related to the Merger. Of this amount, $5.2 million was paid during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and is included in expenditures for vessels and vessel improvements in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of cash flows.

In accordance with ASC 820, the above market time charter contracts were recorded at their estimated fair value at the time of the Merger taking into consideration future cash flows under the stated time charter rates compared to estimated future market-based charter rates, using a discounted cash flow model.

The operating lease right-of-use asset of $5.1 million and the corresponding current and long-term operating lease liabilities of $0.8 million and $4.3 million, respectively, relate to Diamond S' former headquarters office space lease expiring July 2026. Such lease was terminated on September 30, 2021 for a fee of $0.4 million. Accordingly, the Company derecognized the lease liability and right of use asset for this office space as of September 30, 2021.

The fair value of Diamond S' secured borrowings assumed as part of the Merger was measured using the income approach, which takes into account the future cash flows that a market participant would expect to receive from holding the liability as an asset. The carrying amount of the variable rate borrowings under the secured debt facilities at the time of the Merger approximates the fair value estimated based on current market rates and an appropriate credit spread. The credit spread is estimated as the margin over LIBOR in Diamond S' recently entered secured debt facilities, which varies from 2.5% to 3.25%, and represents INSW management's best estimate of such credit spreads. All unamortized deferred financing costs associated with existing financing arrangements of Diamond S were eliminated as part of the fair value measurement.

In connection with the Merger, the Company acquired 51% of the net assets of two joint venture entities which were determined to be variable interest entities ("VIEs") of which the Company is considered the primary beneficiary. According to ASC 805, a primary beneficiary's initial consolidation of a VIE whose assets and liabilities do not constitute a business is excluded from the scope of business combination. Accordingly, the Company applied ASC 810, Consolidation, for initial measurement and recognition of the net assets of the two joint ventures upon initial consolidation. The net assets of the VIEs are measured at fair value in accordance with ASC 805.

Merger and integration related costs represent transactions that are separate from the acquisition of assets and assumption of liabilities in the Merger and are comprised of the following:

As discussed above, the CSMC termination fee is accounted for separately from the asset acquisition, as part of the consideration transferred, that is not related to the fair value of the acquired net assets.

The Company recognized noncash stock compensation cost of $5.3 million related to the accelerated vesting of 600,816 outstanding Diamond S restricted stock and restricted stock units awards upon change of control and involuntary termination as the involuntary termination trigger was initiated by INSW.

The Company incurred severance costs for the former executives of Diamond S totaling $6.8 million during the three months ended September 30. Total severance costs expected to be incurred in connection with the Merger will increase if there is a further reduction in force. As of September 30, 2021, $0.7 million related to such additional severance costs is accrued and included in accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Note 3 - Significant Accounting Policies:

For a description of all of the Company's material accounting policies, see Note 2, "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies," to the Company's consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2020 included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K. The following is a summary of any changes or updates to the Company's critical accounting policies for the current period:

Cash, cash equivalentsand restricted cash- Interest-bearing deposits that are highly liquid investments and have a maturity of three months or less when purchased are included in cash and cash equivalents. Restricted cash of $23.7 million as of September 30, 2021 represents legally restricted cash relating to the Company's Sinosure Credit Facility, the $66 Million Credit Facility, and the Macquarie Credit Facility (See Note 10, "Debt"). Such facilities stipulate that cash accounts be maintained which are limited in their use to pay expenses related to drydocking the vessels and servicing the debt facilities. The restricted cash reserves included in the current assets section of the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets relates to the $66 Million Credit Facility that matures in November 2021.

We are also exposed to credit losses from off-balance sheet exposures related to guarantees of joint venture debt. See Note 7, "Equity Method Investments," for more information on these off-balance sheet exposures.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company did not have any individual customers who accounted for 10% or more of its revenues apart from the pools in which it participates. The pools in which the Company participates accounted in aggregate for 87% and 88% of consolidated voyage receivables at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.

Deferred finance charges- Finance charges, excluding original issue discount, incurred in the arrangement and/or amendments resulting in the modification of debt are deferred and amortized to interest expense on either an effective interest method or straight-line basis over the term of the related debt. Unamortized deferred finance charges of $0.7 million and $0.8 million relating to the $390 Million Facility Revolving Loan (See Note 10, "Debt") as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively, are included in other assets in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. Unamortized deferred financing charges of $6.2 million and $6.9 million relating to the Company's outstanding debt facilities as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively, are included in long-term debt in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. Interest expense relating to the amortization of deferred financing charges amounted to $0.5 million and $1.6 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively, and $0.6 million and $2.2 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively.

Vessels construction in progress - Interest costs are capitalized to vessels during the period that vessels are under construction. Interest capitalized aggregated $0.2 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Time Charter Contracts Acquired-The Company follows the provisions of ASC 350-20-35, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other. Intangible assets with estimable useful lives are amortized over their estimated useful lives. The Company's intangible assets consist of charter-in contracts with contractual rates in excess of fair market charter rates that were acquired as part of the Merger (See Note 2, "Merger Transaction"). These assets are amortized on a straight-line basis as a reduction of time charter revenues over the remaining term of such charters. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, amortization of time charter contracts was $1.7 million.

Variable Interest Entities - The Company determines at the inception of each arrangement whether an entity in which we have made an investment or in which we have other variable interests is considered a variable interest entity ("VIE"). We consolidate a VIE when we are the primary beneficiary, i.e., when we have the power to direct activities that most significantly affect the economic performance of the VIE and have the obligation to absorb the majority of its losses or benefits. If we are not the primary beneficiary, we account for the investment or other variable interests in a VIE in accordance with applicable generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

Periodically, we assess whether any changes in our interest or relationship with the entity have occurred that may affect our determination of whether the entity is a VIE and, if so, whether we are or remain the primary beneficiary. See Note 8, "Variable Interest Entities," for additional information.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards - In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (ASC 848),

which provides relief for companies preparing for discontinuation of interest rates such as LIBOR. A contract modification is eligible to apply the optional relief to account for the modifications as a continuation of the existing contracts without additional analysis and consider embedded features to be clearly and closely related to the host contract without reassessment, if all of the following criteria are met: (1) contract references a rate that will be discontinued; (2) modified terms directly replace (or have potential to replace) this reference rate; and (3) changes to any other terms that change (or have potential to change) amount and timing of cash flows must be related to replacement of the reference rate. In addition, this guidance provides relief from certain hedge accounting requirements. Hedge accounting may continue uninterrupted when critical terms change due to reference rate reform. For cash flow hedges, entities can (1) disregard potential discontinuation of a referenced interest rate when assessing whether a hedged forecasted interest payment is probable; (2) continue hedge accounting upon a change in the hedged risk as long as the hedge is still highly effective; (3) assess effectiveness of the hedge relationship in ways that essentially disregards a potential mismatch in the variable rate indices between the hedging instrument and the hedged item; and (4) disregard the requirement that individual hedged transactions must share the same risk exposure for hedges of portfolios of forecasted transactions that reference a rate affected by reference rate reform. Relief provided by this ASU is optional and expires December 31, 2022. In January 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-01, Reference Rate Reform (ASC 848) to refine the scope of ASC 848 and to clarify some of its guidance. The Company has determined that its primary exposure to LIBOR is in relation to its floating rate debt facilities and the interest rate derivatives to which it is a party. On November 30, 2020, the benchmark administrator for the U.S. Dollar ("USD") LIBOR announced a proposal to extend the publication of the most commonly used USD LIBOR settings until June 30, 2023. In light of this proposal, in an interagency statement, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency issued guidance, strongly encouraging banks to cease entering into new contracts that use USD LIBOR as a reference rate as soon as practicable and in any event by December 31, 2021. Only in limited circumstances will it be appropriate for banks to enter into new contracts referencing USD LIBOR after December 31, 2021. The principal objective, and result, of these actions appears to be that legacy USD LIBOR-based instruments (i.e., those maturing after December 31, 2021) may continue to use USD LIBOR as a reference rate through June 30, 2023, without undermining the regulators' determination that LIBOR should not be available for any other purpose. On January 25, 2021, the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. ("ISDA"), published new fallback provisions for derivatives linked to key interbank offered rates ("IBOR") which will be incorporated into all new derivatives contracts that reference ISDA's standard interest rate derivatives definitions. Such fallback provisions will also be included in legacy non-cleared derivatives if the counterparties have bilaterally agreed to include them or both have adhered to the IBOR fallback protocol. The Company has engaged and will continue to engage in discussions with its lending banks and the counterparties to its interest rate derivative contracts in advance of the June 30, 2023 sunset date for the USD LIBOR reference rate settings used in its agreements to evaluate the Company's options. Based on information available today, the Company's current view is that the Secured Overnight Financing Rate ("SOFR") will be the alternative reference rate that the Company's LIBOR-based agreements will transition to as the sunset date draws closer.

Note 4 - Earnings per Common Share:

Basic earnings per common share is computed by dividing earnings, after the deduction of dividends and undistributed earnings allocated to participating securities, by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period.

The computation of diluted earnings per share assumes the issuance of common stock for all potentially dilutive stock options and restricted stock units not classified as participating securities. Participating securities are defined by ASC 260, Earnings Per Share, as unvested share-based payment awards that contain non-forfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents and are included in the computation of earnings per share pursuant to the two-class method.

Weighted average shares of unvested restricted common stock considered to be participating securities totaled 106,384 and 73,172 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively, and 51,561 and 47,269 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. Such participating securities are allocated a portion of income, but not losses under the two-class method. As of September 30, 2021, there were 242,643 shares of restricted stock units and 811,906 stock options outstanding and considered to be potentially dilutive securities.

Note 5 - Business and Segment Reporting:

The Company has two reportable segments: Crude Tankers and Product Carriers. The Company's investments in and equity in income of the joint ventures with two floating storage and offloading service vessels are included in the Crude Tankers Segment. Adjusted income/(loss) from vessel operations for segment purposes is defined as income/(loss) from vessel operations before general and administrative expenses, reversal of expected credit losses, third-party debt modification fees, merger and integration related costs and (gain)/loss on disposal of vessels and other property, including impairments. The accounting policies followed by the reportable segments are the same as those followed in the preparation of the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.

Consistent with general practice in the shipping industry, the Company uses time charter equivalent revenues, which represent shipping revenues less voyage expenses, as a measure to compare revenue generated from a voyage charter to revenue generated from a time charter. Time charter equivalent revenues, a non-GAAP measure, provide additional meaningful information in conjunction with shipping revenues, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, because it assists Company management in making decisions regarding the deployment and use of its vessels and in evaluating their financial performance.

Note 6 - Vessels:

Vessel Impairments

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company gave consideration on a quarterly basis as to whether events or changes in circumstances had occurred since December 31, 2020 that could indicate that the carrying amounts of the vessels in the Company's fleet may not be recoverable. During the quarter ended September 30, 2021, the Company continued to monitor industry and market factors and its intentions regarding its vessels to determine if indicators of impairment were present and determined that none of the vessels in the Company's fleet met held-for-sale criteria as of September 30, 2021 and no held-for-use impairment indicators existed for the Company's vessels as of September 30, 2021. The Company concluded that the contracted sale of one 2003-built Panamax resulted in a held-for-sale impairment as of June 30, 2021. Held-for-sale impairment charges aggregating $3.5 million were recorded during the second quarter of 2021 including a charge of $3.4 million to write the value of a held-for-sale Panamax down to its estimated fair value at June 30, 2021, and a charge of $0.1 million for estimated costs to sell the vessel. The amount of the charge to write down the vessel to its fair value was determined using the market approach by utilizing the sales price as per the memorandum of agreement associated with the sale of the vessel.

Vessel Acquisitions and Construction Commitments

On March 11, 2021, the Company entered into agreements to construct three dual-fuel LNG VLCCs at Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering's shipyard. Title and risk of the vessels remain with the shipyard while the vessels are under construction until delivered to the Company. The VLCCs will be able to burn LNG in their power plant, which will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Upon delivery to the Company in the first quarter of 2023, the vessels will be employed on seven-year time charter contracts with an oil major - Shell. The total construction cost for the vessels will be approximately $290.0 million, which will be paid

for through a combination of long-term financing, cash on hand and availability under the Company's $390 Million Facility Revolving Loan. Accumulated expenditures of $29.4 million (including capitalized interest costs of $0.2 million) are included in vessels construction in progress in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2021. The remaining commitments on the contracts for the construction of these vessels as of September 30, 2021 was $259.4million.

See Note 2, "Merger Transaction" for a description of the acquisition of 64 vessels through a stock-for-stock merger.

Vessel sales

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company recognized a net aggregate gain of $8.6million on disposal of a 2002-built VLCC, a 2002-built Panamax, a 2003-built Panamax, and seven MRs that were acquired as part of the Merger, which were built between 2006 and 2009. In addition, during the three months ended September 30, 2021, the Company entered into memoranda of agreements for the sale of three additional 2002-built Panamaxes. The Company received a deposit totaling $2.1 million related to one of the Panamaxes, which was delivered to its buyer in November 2021. This deposit is included in cash and cash equivalents in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2021. Also, in October 2021, the Company entered into a memorandum of agreement for the sale of a 2007-built Handysize product carrier acquired as part of the Merger. The Handysize product carrier and the remaining two Panamaxes are expected to be delivered to their respective buyers during the fourth quarter of 2021.

Note 7 - Equity Method Investments:

Investments in affiliated companies include joint ventures accounted for using the equity method. As of September 30, 2021, the Company had a 50% interest in two joint ventures - TI Africa Limited ("TI Africa") and TI Asia Limited ("TI Asia"), which operate two Floating Storage and Offloading Service vessels that were converted from two ULCCs (collectively the "FSO Joint Venture").

The FSO Joint Venture is a party to a number of contracts: (a) the FSO Joint Venture is an obligor pursuant to a guarantee facility agreement dated as of July 14, 2017, by and among, the FSO Joint Venture, ING Belgium NV/SA, as issuing bank, and Euronav and INSW, as guarantors (the "Guarantee Facility"); (b) the FSO Joint Venture is party to two service contracts with NOC (the "NOC Service Contracts") and (c) the FSO Joint Venture is a borrower under a $220 million secured credit facility by and among TI Africa and TI Asia, as joint and several borrowers, ABN AMRO Bank N.V. and ING Belgium SA/NV, as Lenders, Mandated Lead Arrangers and Swap Banks, and ING Bank N.V., as Agent and as Security Trustee. INSW severally guarantees the obligations of the FSO Joint Venture pursuant to the Guarantee Facility.

The FSO Joint Venture drew down on a $220 million credit facility in April 2018. The Company provided a guarantee for the $110 million FSO Term Loan portion of the facility, which has an interest rate of LIBOR plus twopercent and amortizes through July 2022 and September 2022. INSW's guarantee of the FSO Term Loan has financial covenants that provide (i) INSW's Liquid Assets shall not be less than the higher of $50 million and 5% of Total Indebtedness of INSW, (ii) INSW shall have Cash of at least $30 million and (iii) INSW shall be in compliance with the Loan to Value Test (as such capitalized terms are defined in the Company guarantee). As of September 30, 2021, the maximum aggregate potential amount of future payments (undiscounted) that INSW could be required to make in relation to its equity method investees secured bank debt and interest rate swap obligations was $26.6 million and the carrying value of the Company's guaranty in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet was nil.

Investments in and advances to affiliated companies as reflected in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2021 consisted of: FSO Joint Venture of $139.3 million and Other of $38.1 million, which primarily relates to working capital deposits that the Company maintains with commercial pools in which it participates.

Note 8 - Variable Interest Entities ("VIEs"):

Consolidated VIEs

We consolidate VIEs in which we hold a variable interest and are the primary beneficiary. In connection with the Merger, the Company acquired 51% of the net assets of two entities which were determined to be VIEs for which the Company is considered the primary beneficiary. The results of operations and balance sheets of these VIEs are included in our consolidated financial statements.

Diamond Anglo Ship Management Pte. Ltd. -Diamond Anglo Ship Management Pte. Ltd. ("DASM") was formed in January 2018 by Diamond S and Anglo Eastern Investment Holdings Ltd. ("AE Holdings"), a third party, to provide ship management services to some of Diamond S' vessels. DASM is owned 51%by the Company and 49%by AE Holdings.

NT Suez Holdco LLC -The NT Suez Holdco LLC ("NT Suez") joint venture was formed in September 2014 to purchase two Suezmax newbuildings. The two vessels weredelivered in October and November 2016. NT Suez is owned 51% by the Company and 49% by WLR/TRF Shipping S.a.r.l ("WLR/TRF"). WLR/​TRF is indirectly owned by funds managed or jointly managed by WL Ross & Co, LLC ("WLR"), including WLR Recovery Fund V DSS AIV, L.P. and WLR V Parallel ESC, L.P., which are also shareholders of the Company. The results attributable to the 49% interest in NT Suez held by WLR/​TRF is included in net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. The Company and its joint venture partner are currently in the process of dissolving the NT Suez joint venture. Such dissolution will result in the distribution of one of the two Suezmax vessels owned by NT Suez to each partner. See Note 10, "Debt," for further information on NT Suez's debt facility obligation, which matures in November 2021, and the Company's plans to refinance the debt associated with the Suezmax that will distributed to the Company at dissolution.

Unconsolidated VIEs

As of September 30, 2021, one of the commercial pools in which the Company participates and the two FSO joint ventures were determined to be VIEs. The Company is not considered a primary beneficiary of either the pool or the two FSO joint ventures.

In addition, as of September 30, 2021, the Company had approximately $16.6 million of trade receivables from the pool that was determined to be a VIE. These trade receivables, which are included in voyage receivables in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet, have been excluded from the above tables and the calculation of INSW's maximum exposure to loss. The Company does not record the maximum exposure to loss as a liability because it does not believe that such a loss is probable of occurring as of September 30, 2021.

Derivatives

The Company uses interest rate collars and swaps for the management of interest rate risk exposure associated with changes in LIBOR interest rate payments due on its credit facilities. In connection with its entry into the $390 Million Facility Term Loan (see Note 10, "Debt") on January 28, 2020, the Company, in a cashless transaction, converted the $350 million notional interest rate collar into an amortizing $250 million notional pay-fixed, receive-three-month LIBOR interest rate swap subject to a 0% floor. The term of the new hedging arrangement was extended to coincide with the maturity of the $390 Million Facility Term Loan of January 23, 2025 at a fixed rate of 1.97%. The interest rate swap agreement has been re-designated and qualifies as a cash flow hedge and contains no leverage features. Changes in the fair value of the interest rate collar prior to the re-designation on January 28, 2020 recorded through earnings during the first quarter of 2020 totaled a loss of $1.3 million.

INTERNATIONAL SEAWAYS, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)

During April 2020, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement with a major financial institution covering a notional amount of $25 millionof the $390 Million Facility Term Loan that effectively converts the Company's interest rate exposure from a three-month LIBOR floating rate to a fixed rate of 0.50% through the maturity date of January 23, 2025, effective June 30, 2020. The interest rate swap agreement, which contains no leverage features, is designated and qualifies as a cash flow hedge.

The Company is also party to a floating-to-fixed interest rate swap agreement with a major financial institution covering the balance outstanding under the Sinosure Credit Facility that effectively converts the Company's interest rate exposure under the Sinosure Credit Facility from a floating rate based on three-month LIBOR to a fixed rate. The interest rate swap agreement, which contains no leverage features, is designated and qualifies as a cash flow hedge. In July 2020, the Company extended the maturity date of the interest rate swap from March 21, 2025 to December 21, 2027 and reduced the fixed three-month LIBOR from 2.76% to 2.35%, effective June 21, 2020. The new interest rate swap agreement does not in its entirety meet the definition of a derivative instrument because of its off market fixed rate at inception and is deemed to be a hybrid instrument with a financing component and an embedded at-the-market derivative. Such embedded derivative is bifurcated and accounted for separately in the same manner as the Company's other derivatives. The financing component is recorded in current and noncurrent other liabilities in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets at amortized cost. Due to an other-than-insignificant financing element on a portion of such hybrid instrument, the cash flows associated with this hybrid instrument are classified as financing activities in the consolidated statement of cash flows. In connection with the prepayment of the Sinosure Credit Facility in early November 2021 (see Note 10, "Debt"), the Company terminated this interest rate swap on November 2, 2021, and made a payment of $11.7 million to the swap counterparty.

In connection with the Merger, the Company assumed the interest rate swap agreements associated with the $525 Million Facility Term Loan (see Note 10, "Debt"). The interest rate swap agreements cover a notional amount of $163.5 million of the $234.3 million outstanding balance of the $525 Million Facility Term Loan, which was assumed in connection with the Merger, that effectively converts the Company's interest rate exposure from a three-month LIBOR floating rate to an average fixed rate of 0.54%through the maturity date of December 23, 2024. The interest rate swap agreement has been designated and qualifies as a cash flow hedge and contains no leverage features.

The Amended and Restated $525 Million Credit Agreement consists of a five-year term loan of $375 million (the "$525 Million Facility Term Loan") and a revolving loan of $150 million (the "$525 Million Facility Revolving Loan") that was collateralized by 36 vessels at the Effective Time, with reductions based on a 17-yearage-adjusted amortization schedule, payable on a quarterly basis with a maturity date of December 23, 2024. The term loan and revolving loan bear interest at LIBOR plus a margin of 2.50%, and the interest is paid quarterly. Commitment fees on undrawn amounts related to the $525 Million Facility Revolving Loan are 0.875%. The outstanding principal amount under the $525 Million Facility Term Loan and the $525 Million Facility Revolving Loan assumed by the Company at the Effective Time was $262.5 million and $150.0 million, respectively.

The Amended and Restated $360 Million Credit Agreement consists of a term loan of $300 million (the "$360 Million Facility Term Loan") and a revolving loan with an original availability of $60 million (the "$360 Million Facility Revolving Loan"), which as of the Effective Time had been reduced to an availability of $53 million as a result of pre-merger vessel sales by Diamond S. The Amended and Restated $360 Million Credit Agreement was collateralized by 26 vessels at the Effective Time, with reductions based on a 17-yearage-adjusted amortization schedule, payable on a quarterly basis with a maturity date of March 27, 2024. The term loan and revolving loan bear interest at LIBOR plus a margin of 2.65%, and interest is paid quarterly. Commitment fees on undrawn amounts related to the $360 Million Facility Revolving Loan are 1.06%. The outstanding principal amount under the $360 Million Facility Term Loan and the $360 Million Facility Revolving Loan assumed by the Company at the Effective Time was $167.9 million and $53.0 million, respectively.

The sale and delivery of seven MRs during the three months ended September 30, 2021 reduced the number of vessels collateralizing the Amended and Restated $525 Million Credit Agreement and the Amended and Restated $360 Million Credit Agreement to 34 and 21 vessels, respectively, and also resulted in a permanent reduction of the drawdown availability under the $525 Million Facility Revolving Loan and the $360 Million Facility Revolving Loan of $5.8 million and $8.4 million, respectively and a reduction in the scheduled future principal amortization under both facilities. As of September 30, 2021, there was no further drawdown availability under both revolving facilities.

The Company also assumed a $66 million five-yearsenior secured term loan facility (the "$66 Million Credit Facility") entered into by NT Suez with Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank ("CA-CIB") and a syndicate of financial institutions arranged by CA-CIB on August 9, 2016 for the purpose of financing two vessels controlled by NT Suez (see Note 8, "Variable Interest Entities"). The $66 Million Credit Facility, which is collateralized by the two vessels, is a nonrecourse term loan with reductions that are based on a 15-yearamortization schedule and is payable on a quarterly basis with a balloon repayment upon maturity on November 18, 2021. The $66 Million Credit Facility bears interest at LIBOR plus a margin of 3.25%. The outstanding principal amount under the $66 Million Credit Facility assumed by the Company at the Effective Time was $45.2 million.

The $66 Million Credit Facility includes restrictions and financial covenants including, among other things, the Company's ability to incur indebtedness, limitations on the payments of dividends by the NT Suez joint venture, minimum cash balance, collateral maintenance, and other customary restrictions. The $66 Million Credit Facility permits the NT Suez joint venture to pay dividends so long as the payment of dividends does not cause an event of default under the credit facility and does not exceed an amount equal to 75% of the consolidated net income of NT Suez, as determined in accordance with GAAP.

The Company is in the process of dissolving NT Suez and taking full ownership of one of the two Suezmaxes owned by the joint venture. In conjunction with such process, the Company is refinancing its half of the $66 Million Credit Facility on a long-term basis. The entire remaining outstanding principal amount of the $66 Million Credit Facility is reflected as a current liability in the accompanying condensed balance sheet as of September 30, 2021. This refinancing is also expected to result in the release of the Company's share of restricted cash attributable to this facility. The dissolution and refinancing are expected to be completed before the scheduled November 18, 2021 maturity of the $66 Million Credit Facility.

Macquarie Credit Facility

On September 30, 2021, the Company, Seaways Shipping II Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, and Seaways Shipping II Corporation's three subsidiaries (the "Borrowers") executed a credit agreement for a $20.0 million term loan facility with Macquarie Bank Limited, London Branch, as lender, facility agent and security agent (the "Macquarie Credit Facility"). The Macquarie Credit Facility is comprised of three loans, each secured by a first lien on one of three LR1s owned by the Company, along

(UNAUDITED)

with their respective earnings, insurances and certain other assets, as well as certain additional assets of the Company's subsidiaries. The facility bears interest at LIBOR plus a margin of 3.825%. The loan amortizes in quarterly installments varying in amount between $0.5 million to $0.9 million commencing December 31, 2021, and matures on March 31, 2025, with a balloon payment of approximately $11.7 million due at maturity. The maturity date for the loan is subject to acceleration upon the occurrence of certain events as described in the credit agreement. The Macquarie Credit Facility is guaranteed by the Company and Seaways Shipping II Corporation. The full $20.0 million was drawn down on September 30, 2021.

$390 Million Credit Facility

In January 2020, the Company, International Seaways Operating Corporation and certain of their subsidiaries entered into a credit agreement comprising $390 million of secured debt facilities (the "$390 Million Credit Facility") with Nordea Bank Abp, New York Branch ("Nordea"), and a syndicate of other financial institutions. The $390 Million Credit Facility consisted of (i) a five-yearsenior secured term loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of $300 million (the "$390 Million Facility Term Loan"); (ii) a five-yearrevolving credit facility in an aggregate principal amount of $40 million (the "$390 Million Facility Revolving Loan"); and (iii) a senior secured term loan credit facility with a maturity date of June 30, 2022 in an aggregate principal amount of $50 million (the "$390 Million Facility Transition Term Loan"). The $40 million remaining outstanding principal balance under the "$390 Million Facility Transition Term Loan was repaid in full using available cash on hand in August 2020.

Sinosure Credit Facility Refinancing

On October 26, 2021, the Company entered into lease financing arrangements with Ocean Yield ASA for the sale and leaseback of the six VLCCs that collateralized the Sinosure Credit Facility, for a net sale price of $374.6 million in total, which represents 90% of the fair value of the sixVLCCs. The proceeds of the sale will be recognized as a financing obligation. The proceeds from the transactions, which were received on November 8, 2021, were used to prepay the $228.4 million outstanding loan balance under the Sinosure Credit Facility, with the balance intended for general corporate purposes. Approximately $16.1 million of cash that was restricted by the Sinosure Credit Facility was released as a result of the prepayment of the outstanding loan balance. Under these lease financing arrangements, each of the six VLCCs is subject to a 10-yearbareboat charter with purchase options exercisable commencing at the end of the fourth year and purchase obligations at the end of the 10-yearterm. Charter hire under the arrangement is comprised of a fixed monthly repayment amount of $2.4 million plus a variable interest component calculated based on three-month LIBOR plus a margin of 4.05%. The terms and conditions, including financial covenants, of the arrangements are in-line with those within the Company's existing debt facilities.

Debt Covenants

The $390 Million Credit Facility, the Amended and Restated $525Million Credit Agreement, the Amended and Restated $360Million Credit Agreement and the Macquarie Credit Facility contain customary representations, warranties, restrictions and covenants applicable to the Company, the Borrower and the subsidiary guarantors (and in certain cases, other subsidiaries), including financial covenants that require the Company (i) to maintain a minimum liquidity level of the greater of $50 million and 5% of the Company's Consolidated Indebtedness; (ii) to ensure the Company's and its consolidated subsidiaries' Maximum Leverage Ratio will not exceed 0.60 to 1.00 at any time; (iii) to ensure that Current Assets exceeds Current Liabilities (which is defined to exclude the current potion of Consolidated Indebtedness); (iv) to ensure the aggregate Fair Market Value of the Collateral Vessels will not be less than 135% of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Term Loans and Revolving Loans of each Facility ("LTV Ratio") ; and (v) to ensure that for as long as such covenant is required under the Sinosure Credit Facility, that the ratio of Consolidated EBITDA to Consolidated Cash Interest Expense will not be lower than 2.50:1.00.

Under the Sinosure Credit Facility, the Obligors (as defined in the Sinosure Credit Facility) were required to comply with various collateral maintenance and financial covenants, including with respect to:

(i) minimum security coverage, which shall not be less than 135% of the aggregate loan principal outstanding under the Sinosure Credit Facility. Any non-compliance with the minimum security coverage shall not constitute an event of default so long as within thirty days of such non-compliance, Seaways Subsidiary VII, Inc. has either provided additional collateral or prepaid a portion of the outstanding loan balance to cure such non-compliance;

24

(UNAUDITED)

(ii) maximum consolidated leverage ratio, which shall not be greater than 0.60to 1.00 on any testing date;
(iii) minimum consolidated liquidity, under which unrestricted consolidated cash and cash equivalents shall be no less than $25million at any time and total consolidated cash and cash equivalents (including cash restricted under the Sinosure Credit Facility) shall not be less than the greater of $50million or 5.0%of Total Indebtedness (as defined in the Sinosure Credit Facility) or $9million (i.e., $1.5million per each VLCC securing the Sinosure Credit Facility); and
(iv) consolidated interest expense coverage ratio, which shall not be less than 2.50to 1.00 for the period commencing on July 1, 2020 and shall be calculated on a trailing twelve-month basis.

The Company was not in compliance with the consolidated interest expense coverage ratio financial covenant contained in the Company's debt facilities for the Test Date ending on September 30, 2021. As described above, on November 8, 2021, the Company completed alternative financing on the six VLCCs that collateralized the Sinosure Credit Facility and simultaneously prepaid and terminated the Sinosure Credit Facility in order to both increase liquidity and remedy the covenant noncompliance that existed for the Test Date ending on September 30, 2021.

The 8.5% Senior Notes Indenture contains certain restrictive covenants, including covenants that, subject to certain exceptions and qualifications, restrict our ability to make certain payments if a default under the Indenture has occurred and is continuing or will result therefrom and require us to limit the amount of debt we incur, maintain a certain minimum net worth and provide certain reports. The Indenture also provides for certain customary events of default (subject, in certain cases, to receipt of notice of default and/or customary grace or cure periods). Pursuant to the limitation on borrowings covenant, the Company shall not permit Total Borrowings (as defined in the Indenture) to equal or exceed 70% of Total Assets (as defined in the Indenture). The Company shall also ensure that Net Worth (defined as Total Assets, less Intangible assets and Total Borrowings, as defined in the Indenture) exceeds $600 million pursuant to the Minimum Net Worth covenant.

Note 11 - Taxes:

The Company derives substantially all of its gross income from the use and operation of vessels in international commerce. The Company's entities that own and operate vessels are primarily domiciled in the Marshall Islands, which do not impose income tax on shipping operations.

A substantial portion of income earned by the Company is not subject to income tax. With respect to subsidiaries not subject to income tax in their respective countries of incorporation, no deferred taxes are provided for the temporary differences in the bases of the underlying assets and liabilities for tax and accounting purposes.

The Company qualifies for an exemption from U.S. federal income taxes under Section 883 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code") and U.S. Treasury Department regulations for the 2021 calendar year, as less than 50 percent of the total value of the Company's stock was held by one or more shareholders who own 5% or more of the Company's stock for more than half of the days of 2021.

The Company also has or had subsidiaries in various jurisdictions that perform administrative, commercial or technical management functions. These subsidiaries are subject to income tax based on the services performed in countries in which their offices are located; current and deferred income taxes are recorded accordingly.

In addition to the Company's shipping income and pursuant to certain agreements, Diamond S has historically performed commercial, technical and administrative management services for its vessel owning subsidiaries. These management services, which are performed by Diamond S Management LLC, a Marshall Islands entity ("DSMM"), will be phased out by the end of 2021 as vessels are delivered into third party commercial pools and technical managers. DSMM elected to be taxed as a corporation for United States federal income tax purposes. As such, DSMM is subject to United States federal income tax (imposed a 21% rate) on its worldwide net income, including the net income derived from providing these management services.

The Company has two entities that were established in Singapore. The income for these two entities is taxable at the prevailing Singapore Corporate income tax rate, which is currently 17%. The Company's Singapore-based subsidiary Diamond S Management (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. ("DSMS") and its Singapore-based joint venture that is consolidated - DASM (See Note 8, "Variable Interest Entities"), recorded income tax provisions of $0 and $35, respectively, during the three months ended September 30, 2021.

Issuance of Shares upon Merger

At the Effective Time, the Diamond S Common Shares issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (excluding Diamond S Common Shares owned by Diamond S, the Company, Merger Sub or any of their respective direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries) were cancelled in exchange for 0.55375of a share of INSW Common Stock and cash payable in respect of fractional shares. The aforementioned 0.55375exchange ratio set forth in the Merger Agreement resulted in the issuance of 22,536,647shares of INSW Common Stock with the pre-merger INSW shareholders and the former Diamond S shareholders owning approximately 55.75%and 44.25%, respectively, of the 50,674,393 issuedand outstanding common stock of the Company immediately following the Effective Time. The Company incurred and paid $0.1 million and $0.8 million equity issuance costs during the three and nine months ended September 31, 2021, respectively.

Restricted Common Stock

The Company awarded a total of 57,178 restricted common stock shares during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 to its non-employee directors. The weighted average fair value of INSW's stock on the measurement date of such awards was $18.95 per share. Such restricted share awards vest in full on the earlier of the next annual meeting of the stockholders or June 2, 2022, subject to each director continuing to provide services to INSW through such date. The restricted share awards granted may not be transferred, pledged, assigned or otherwise encumbered prior to vesting. Prior to the vesting date, a holder of restricted share awards otherwise has all the rights of a shareholder of INSW, including the right to vote such shares and the right to receive dividends paid with respect to such shares at the same time as common shareholders generally.

Pursuant to the Merger, the Company assumed certain equity awards granted under the Diamond S Shipping Inc. 2019 Equity and Incentive Compensation Plan, amended as of March 27, 2019 (the "Diamond S Plan"). After giving effect to the exchange ratio and appropriate adjustments to reflect the consummation of the Merger, outstanding awards of 131,845 unvested Diamond S restricted stock issued under the Diamond S Plan, as of the Effective Time, were assumed by the Company and converted into 72,994 of unvested restricted shares with respect to INSW Common Stock, on the same general terms and conditions under the applicable Diamond S plans and award agreements in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time. ASC 805 requires an allocation of the fair-value-based measure of a replacement award to pre-combination service and post-combination service, with the value attributable to pre-combination service included in the consideration transferred and the value attributable to post-combination service recognized as compensation cost by the acquirer. The fair-value-based measure of such replacement award attributable to post-combination service was determined to be $0.6 million.

Effective as of the Effective Time, as contemplated by the Merger Agreement in order to permit three directors designated by Diamond S to serve on the Board, Mr. Ty E. Wallach resigned as a member of the Board. In connection with his resignation from the Board, the Board approved the accelerated vesting of his 5,035 restricted shares of INSW Common Stock grant made in June 2021.

Restricted Stock Units and Stock Options

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company granted 64,943 time-based restricted stock units ("RSUs") to certain of its senior officers and employees. The weighted average grant date fair value of these awards was $21.58 per RSU. Each RSU represents a contingent right to receive one share of INSW common stock upon vesting. Each award of RSUs will vest in equal installments on each of the first three anniversaries of the grant date.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company awarded 64,943 performance-based RSUs to certain of its senior officers and employees. Each performance stock unit represents a contingent right to receive RSUs based upon the covered employees being continuously employed through the end of the period over which the performance goals are measured and shall vest as follows: (i) one-half of the target RSUs shall vest on December 31, 2023, subject to INSW's return on invested capital ("ROIC") performance in the three-year ROIC performance period relative to a target rate (the "ROIC Target") set forth in the award agreements; and (ii) one-half of the target RSUs shall vest on December 31, 2023, subject to INSW's three-year total shareholder return ("TSR") performance relative to that of a performance peer group over a three-year performance period ("TSR Target"). Vesting is subject in each case to the Human Resources and Compensation Committee of the Company's Board of Directors' certification of achievement of the performance measures and targets no later than March 15, 2024. The weighted average grant date fair value of the awards with

27

(UNAUDITED)

performance conditions was determined to be $21.58 per RSU. The weighted average grant date fair value of the TSR based performance awards which have a market condition was estimated using a Monte Carlo probability model and determined to be $22.50 per RSU.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company awarded to certain of its senior officers and employees an aggregate of 141,282 stock options. Each stock option represents an option to purchase one share of INSW common stock for an exercise price of $21.58 per share. Each stock option will vest in equal installments on each of the first three anniversaries of the award date. The weighted average grant date fair value of the options was $9.92 per option. The fair value of the options was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model with inputs that include the INSW stock price, the INSW exercise price and the following weighted average assumptions: risk free interest rates of 1.06%, dividend yields of 1.23%, expected stock price volatility factor of .55, and expected lives at inception of six years. Stock options may not be transferred, pledged, assigned or otherwise encumbered prior to vesting. The stock options expire on the business day immediately preceding the tenth anniversary of the award date. If a stock option grantee's employment is terminated for cause (as defined in the applicable Form of Grant Agreement), stock options (whether then vested or exercisable or not) will lapse and will not be exercisable. If a stock option grantee's employment is terminated for reasons other than cause, the option recipient may exercise the vested portion of the stock option but only within such period of time ending on the earlier to occur of (i) the 90th day ending after the option recipient's employment terminated and (ii) the expiration of the options, provided that if the optionee's employment terminates for death or disability the vested portion of the option may be exercised until the earlier of (a) the first anniversary of employment termination and (b) the expiration date of the options.

Dividends

At September 30, 2021, the Company expects that it will reclassify $8.8 million (gross and net of tax) of net losses on derivative instruments from accumulated other comprehensive loss to earnings during the next twelve months due to the payment of variable rate interest associated with floating rate debt of INSW's equity method investees and the interest rate swaps held by the Company.

Note 14 - Revenue:

Revenue Recognition

The majority of the Company's contracts for pool revenues, time and bareboat charter revenues, and voyage charter revenues are accounted for as lease revenue under ASC 842. The Company's contracts with pools are short term which are cancellable with up to 90 days' notice. As of September 30, 2021, the Company is a party to time charter out contracts with customers on two Panamaxes, one LR2, one Aframax, two Suezmaxes (controlled through the 51% owned joint venture NT Suez), one MR and one VLCC with expiry dates ranging from October 2021 to March 2023. The Company is a party to a short-term profit share agreement to participate in a share of the profits and losses generated from a chartered-in MR commercially managed by a pool in which the Company participates. The Company's share of earnings and charter hire expenses from this profit share agreement are included in voyage charter revenues and charter hire expenses, respectively, in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. The Company's contracts with customers for voyage charters are short term and vary in length based upon the duration of each voyage. Lease revenue for non-variable lease payments are recognized over the lease term on a straight-line basis and lease revenue for variable lease payments (e.g., demurrage) are recognized in the period in which the changes in facts and circumstances on which the variable lease payments are based occur.

Lightering services provided by the Company's Crude Tanker Lightering Business, and voyage charter contracts that do not meet the definition of a lease are accounted for as service revenues under ASC 606. In accordance with ASC 606, revenue is recognized when a

customer obtains control of or consumes promised services. The amount of revenue recognized reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for these services.

We receive payments from customers based on the schedule established in our contracts. Contract assets relate to our conditional right to consideration for our completed performance obligations under contracts and decrease when the right to consideration becomes unconditional or payments are received. Contract liabilities include payments received in advance of performance under contracts and are recognized when performance under the respective contract has been completed. Deferred revenues allocated to unsatisfied performance obligations will be recognized over time as the services are performed.

Performance Obligations

All of the Company's performance obligations, and associated revenue, are generally transferred to customers over time. The expected duration of services is less than one year. Adjustments in revenues from performance obligations satisfied in previous periods recognized were nil during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared with $32 thousand and $47 thousand, respectively, during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020. These adjustments to revenue were related to changes in estimates of performance obligations related to voyage charters.

Costs to Obtain or Fulfill a Contract

As of September 30, 2021, there were no unamortized deferred costs of obtaining or fulfilling a contract.

Note 15 - Leases:

As permitted under ASC 842, the Company has elected not to apply the provisions of ASC 842 to short term leases, which include: (i) tanker vessels chartered-in where the duration of the charter was one year or less at inception; (ii) workboats employed in the Crude Tankers Lightering business which have a lease term of 12-months or less; and (iii) short term leases of office and other space.

1. Charters-in of vessel assets:

As of September 30, 2021, INSW had commitments to charter in twoAframaxes and oneworkboat employed in the Crude Tankers Lightering business. All of the charters-in, of which the two Aframaxes are bareboat charters with expiry dates ranging from December 2023 to March 2024 and the other oneis a time charter expiring March 2022, are accounted for as operating leases. In October 2021, the Company chartered in an LR1 for 18 months through April 2023. The Company's bareboat charters contain purchase options commencing in the first quarter of 2021. The Company has determined that the purchase options are not reasonably certain of being exercised.

Payments of lease liabilities and related number of operating days under these operating leases as of September 30, 2021 are as follows:

Future minimum revenues do not include (i) the Company's share of time charters entered into by the pools in which it participates, and (ii) the Company's share of time charters entered into by the joint ventures, which the Company accounts for under the equity method. Revenues from a time charter are not generally received when a vessel is off-hire, including time required for normal periodic maintenance of the vessel. In arriving at the minimum future charter revenues, an estimated time off-hire to perform periodic maintenance on each vessel has been deducted, although there is no assurance that such estimate will be reflective of the actual off-hire in the future.

Note 16 - Contingencies:

INSW's policy for recording legal costs related to contingencies is to expense such legal costs as incurred.

Multi-Employer Plans

The Merchant Navy Officers Pension Fund ("MNOPF") is a multi-employer defined benefit pension plan covering British crew members that served as officers on board INSW's vessels (as well as vessels of other owners). The trustees of the plan have indicated that, under the terms of the High Court ruling in 2005, which established the liability of past employers to fund the deficit on the Post 1978 section of MNOPF, calls for further contributions may be required if additional actuarial deficits arise or if other employers liable for contributions are not able to pay their share in the future. As the amount of any such assessment cannot be reasonably estimated, no reserves have been recorded for this contingency in INSW's consolidated financial statements as of September 30, 2021. The deficit valuation as of March 31, 2021, is expected to be issued during 2022, and the Company expects no deficit contribution will be required.

The Merchant Navy Ratings Pension Fund ("MNRPF") is a multi-employer defined benefit pension plan covering British crew members that served as ratings (seamen) on board INSW's vessels (as well as vessels of other owners) more than 20 years ago. Participating employers include current employers, historic employers that have made voluntary contributions, and historic employers such as INSW that have made no deficit contributions. Calls for contributions may be required if additional actuarial deficits arise or if other employers liable for contributions are unable to pay their share in the future. As the amount of any such assessment cannot be reasonably estimated, no reserves have been recorded in INSW's consolidated financial statements as of September 30, 2021. The next deficit valuation will be as of March 31, 2023.

Spin-Off Related Agreements

On November 30, 2016, INSW was spun off from OSG as a separate publicly traded company. In connection with the spin-off, INSW and OSG entered into several agreements, including a separation and distribution agreement, an employee matters agreement and a transition services agreement. While most of the obligations under those agreements were subsequently fulfilled, certain provisions (including in particular mutual indemnification provisions under the separation and distribution agreement and the employee matters agreement) continue in force.

Legal Proceedings Arising in the Ordinary Course of Business

The Company is a party, as plaintiff or defendant, to various suits in the ordinary course of business for monetary relief arising principally from personal injuries, wrongful death, collision or other casualty and to claims arising under charter parties and other contract disputes. A substantial majority of such personal injury, wrongful death, collision or other casualty claims against the Company are covered by insurance (subject to deductibles not material in amount). Each of the claims involves an amount which, in the opinion of management, should not be material to the Company's financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

INTRODUCTION

This Management's Discussion and Analysis, which should be read in conjunction with our accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements, provides a discussion and analysis of our business, current developments, financial condition, cash flows and results of operations. It is organized as follows:

General.This section provides a general description of our business, which we believe is important in understanding the results of our operations, financial condition and potential future trends.

Operations & Oil Tanker Markets.This section provides an overview of industry operations and dynamics that have an impact on the Company's financial position and results of operations.

38

INTERNATIONAL SEAWAYS, INC.

Critical Accounting Estimates and Policies.This section identifies any updates to those accounting policies that are considered important to our results of operations and financial condition, require significant judgment and involve significant management estimates.

Results from Vessel Operations.This section provides an analysis of our results of operations presented on a business segment basis. In addition, a brief description of significant transactions and other items that affect the comparability of the results is provided, if applicable.

Liquidity and Sources of Capital.This section provides an analysis of our cash flows, outstanding debt and commitments. Included in the analysis of our outstanding debt is a discussion of the amount of financial capacity available to fund our ongoing operations and future commitments as well as a discussion of the Company's planned and/or already executed capital allocation activities.

General:

We are a provider of ocean transportation services for crude oil and refined petroleum products. We operate our fleet of VLCC, Suezmax, Aframax and Panamax crude tankers and LR1, LR2, MR and Handysize product carriers in the International Flag market. Our business includes two reportable segments: Crude Tankers and Product Carriers. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, we derived 48% and 63%, respectively, of our TCE revenues from our Crude Tankers segment, compared with 85% and 79%, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020. Revenues from our Product Carriers segment constituted the balance of our TCE revenues in the 2021 and 2020 periods.

Completion of Merger Transaction

As described in Note 2, "Merger Transaction," to the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements, on July 16, 2021 pursuant to the Merger Agreement dated as of March 30, 2021, the Company completed a stock-for-stock merger with Diamond S.As of September 30, 2021, the Company operated a fleet of 89 vessels, consisting of 53 product carriers and 36 crude tankers with an aggregate carrying capacity of approximately 9.8 million deadweight tons ("dwt"), including two vessels that have been chartered-in under operating leases for durations exceeding one year at inception, two FSO service vessels in which we have ownership interests through joint venture partnerships, and two Suezmaxes owned through another joint venture. In addition to our operating fleet of 89 vessels, three dual-fuel LNG VLCC newbuilds are scheduled for delivery to the Company in the first quarter of 2023, bringing the total operating and newbuild fleet to 92 vessels. Subsequent to September 30, 2021, the Company chartered in an LR1 for a minimum period of 18-months.

The Company's revenues are highly sensitive to patterns of supply and demand for vessels of the size and design configurations owned and operated by the Company and the trades in which those vessels operate. Rates for the transportation of crude oil and refined petroleum products from which the Company earns a substantial majority of its revenues are determined by market forces such as the supply and demand for oil, the distance that cargoes must be transported, and the number of vessels expected to be available at the time such cargoes need to be transported. The demand for oil shipments is significantly affected by the state of the global economy, levels of U.S. domestic and international production and OPEC exports. The number of vessels is affected by newbuilding deliveries and by the removal of existing vessels from service, principally through storage, recycling or conversions. The Company's revenues are also affected by its vessel employment strategy, which seeks to achieve the optimal mix of spot (voyage charter) and long-term (time or bareboat charter) charters. Because shipping revenues and voyage expenses are significantly affected by the mix between voyage charters and time charters, the Company measures the performance of its fleet of vessels based on TCE revenues. Management makes economic decisions based on anticipated TCE rates and evaluates financial performance based on TCE rates achieved. In order to take advantage of market conditions and optimize economic performance, management employs all of

the Company's LR1 product carriers, which currently participate in the Panamax International pool, in the transportation of crude oil cargoes. Our revenues are derived predominantly from spot market voyage charters and our vessels are predominantly employed in the spot market via market-leading commercial pools.We derived approximately 80% and 76% of our total TCE revenues in the spot market for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively, compared with 67% and 81% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively.

INTERNATIONAL SEAWAYS, INC.

The following is a discussion and analysis of our financial condition as of September 30, 2021 and results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020. You should consider the foregoing when reviewing the condensed consolidated financial statements and this discussion and analysis. You should read this section together with the condensed consolidated financial statements, including the notes thereto. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes industry data and forecasts that we have prepared based, in part, on information obtained from industry publications and surveys. Third-party industry publications, surveys and forecasts generally state that the information contained therein has been obtained from sources believed to be reliable. In addition, certain statements regarding our market position in this report are based on information derived from internal market studies and research reports. Unless we state otherwise, statements about the Company's relative competitive position in this report are based on our management's beliefs, internal studies and management's knowledge of industry trends.

Operations and Oil Tanker Markets:

The International Energy Agency ("IEA") estimates global oil consumption for the third quarter of 2021 at 97.8 million barrels per day ("b/d"), up 6.2% from the same quarter in 2020. The estimate for global oil consumption for 2021 is 96.3 million b/d, an increase of 6.1% over 2020. OECD demand in 2021 is estimated to increase by 6.0% to 44.5 million b/d, while non-OECD demand is estimated to increase by 6.1% to 51.8 million b/d.

Global oil production in the third quarter of 2021 was 96.3 million b/d, an increase of 6.0% from the third quarter of 2020. OPEC crude oil production averaged 26.9 million b/d in the third quarter of 2021, an increase of 1.4 million b/d from the second quarter of 2021, and an increase of 3.1 million b/d from the third quarter of 2020. Non-OPEC production increased by 2.2 million b/d to 64.1 million b/d in the third quarter of 2021 compared with the third quarter of 2020. Oil production in the U.S. in the third quarter of 2021 increased by 0.9% to 11.3 million b/d compared to the second quarter of 2021 and by 3.4% from the third quarter of 2020.

U.S. refinery throughput increased by 0.9 million b/d to 16.5 million b/d in the third quarter of 2021 compared with the second quarter of 2021. U.S. crude oil imports in the third quarter of 2021 increased by 0.5 million b/d to 6.4 million b/d compared with the third quarter of 2020, with imports from OPEC countries remaining flat and imports from non-OPEC countries increasing by 0.5 million b/d.

China's crude oil imports declined by 0.5 million b/d from August 2021 to September 2021 and declined by 1.8 million b/d from September 2020. For the first nine months of the year, China's crude oil imports declined by 6.8% compared to the comparable period in 2020 to average 10.4 million b/d. Due to higher oil prices, China drew down more inventories from commercial and strategic reserves.

As a result of rising oil demand outpacing production of crude oil and refined products and significant increases in current prices of crude oil, global inventories were drawn down during the third quarter of 2021 to below the average over the last five years. Total commercial stocks in the OECD have declined by approximately 30 million barrels in the two months ending August 2021, the most recent available combined inventory data. Large draws in total inventories have negatively impacted current tanker market earnings.

During the third quarter of 2021, the tanker fleet of vessels over 10,000 dwt decreased, net of vessels recycled, by 0.2 million dwt as the crude fleet decreased by 0.5 million dwt, with VLCCs and Suezmaxes declining by 0.8 and 0.4 million dwt, respectively and Aframaxes growing by 0.7 million dwt. The product carrier fleet increased by 0.3 million dwt. Year-over-year, the size of the tanker fleet increased by 12.3 million dwt with the VLCCs, Suezmaxes, Aframaxes and MRs increasing by 5.1 million dwt, 3.0 million dwt, 2.2 million dwt and 2.1 million dwt, respectively. The LR1/Panamax fleet remained flat.

During the third quarter of 2021, the tanker orderbook declined by 3.8 million dwt overall. The crude tanker orderbook decreased by 2.4 million dwt, with decreases in the VLCC, Suezmax and Aframax sectors of 1.3 million dwt, 0.2 million dwt and 1.0 million dwt, respectively. The product carrier orderbook decreased by 1.4 million dwt with LR1s declining by 0.1 million dwt and MRs declining by 1.2 million dwt. Year-over-year, the total tanker orderbook increased by 0.4 million dwt, with VLCCs increasing by 3.4 million dwt and all other sector orderbooks declining.

After a weak first half of 2021, crude tanker rates remained under pressure and all tanker types operated at or below industry average cash breakeven levels on benchmark routes during the third quarter of 2021. So far in the fourth quarter of 2021, rates in all segments continue to be weak.

The pandemic involving the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has adversely affected the Company's business, operations and financial results, and will likely continue to do so. See Item 1A, Risk Factors in our December 31, 2020 Form 10-K - The current pandemic involving the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has adversely affected the Company's business, operations and financial results, and will likely continue to do so.

Update on Critical Accounting Estimates and Policies:

The Company's consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, which require the Company to make estimates in the application of its accounting policies based on the best assumptions, judgments and opinions of management. For a description of all of the Company's material accounting policies, see Note 2, "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies," to the Company's consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2020 included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K. See Note 3, "Significant Accounting Policies," to the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements for any changes or updates to the Company's critical accounting policies for the current period.

Results from Vessel Operations:

During the third quarter of 2021, results from vessel operations decreased by $79.6 million to a loss of $62.8 million from income of $16.8 million in the third quarter of 2020. Such decrease resulted principally from $47.0 million of one-time merger and integration related costs incurred in the current quarter related to the Company's Merger with Diamond S, and increased vessel expenses, which were not sufficiently covered with a corresponding increase in TCE revenues despite having a larger post-Merger fleet, partially offset by a net increase of $21.9 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared with the third quarter of 2020 in gain on the disposal of vessels.

The decrease in TCE revenues in the third quarter of 2021 of $21.0 million, or 22%, to $73.0 million from $94.0 million in the corresponding quarter of the prior year primarily reflects lower average daily rates across the majority of INSW's fleet sectors, which accounted for a decrease of approximately $64.6 million. Partially offsetting this rates-based decline were significant days-based increases in the Suezmax and MR fleets, which reflected the growth in the vessel count in these fleets that resulted from the Merger.

During the first nine months of 2021, income from vessel operations decreased by $230.2 million to a loss of $92.1 million from income of $138.1 million in the first nine months of 2020. The primary drivers of the decrease were consistent with those described above in the quarter-over-quarter analysis.

The decrease in TCE revenues in the first nine months of 2021 of $186.2 million, or 53%, to $162.9 million from $349.1 million in the corresponding period of the prior year primarily reflects lower average daily rates across all of INSW's fleet sectors, which accounted for a rates-based decrease of approximately $221.0 million. Also contributing to the decrease was a decline in revenue days in the VLCC fleet principally due to the sales of three older VLCCs between November 2020 and July 2021. Partially offsetting these declines were days-based increases in the Suezmax and MR fleets, as described above.

See Note 5, "Business and Segment Reporting," to the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements for additional information on the Company's segments, including equity in income of affiliated companies and reconciliations of (i) time charter equivalent revenues to shipping revenues and (ii) adjusted income from vessel operations for the segments to income before income taxes, as reported in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

INTERNATIONAL SEAWAYS, INC.

During the third quarter of 2021, TCE revenues for the Crude Tankers segment decreased by $45.0 million, or 56%, to $34.8 million from $79.8 million in the third quarter of 2020, principally as a result of significantly lower average blended rates in the VLCC, Suezmax and Panamax sectors aggregating approximately $50.0 million. Commencing from the latter part of the second quarter of 2020, principally as the result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, oil production has declined. This development, which negatively impacted the demand for oil tankers during the second half of 2020, continued through the first three quarters of 2021. The extent to which the current COVID-19 related market conditions will continue to negatively impact the tanker rate environment will depend on (i) the extent to which oil demand is met from excess crude inventories that were built up during the period of oil demand destruction, (ii) the timing and magnitude of oil demand recoveries in the various parts of the world and (iii) the levels of oil production during such periods.

Also contributing to the decline in TCE revenues was (i) a $19.6 million days-based decline in VLCC revenue which reflects 429 fewer revenue days in the current quarter, driven by the sales of older vessels discussed above, and (ii) a $1.0 million decrease in revenue in the Crude Tankers Lightering business in the current quarter. Partially offsetting the decreases to TCE revenues was a $25.1 million days-based increase in the Suezmax fleet, which reflects an incremental 908 revenue days in the current quarter arising from the Company's acquisition of 13 Suezmaxes as a part of its Merger with Diamond S. The revenue days in the Aframax fleet during the current quarter decreased marginally as compared to the third quarter of 2020, as the impact of the acquisition of one Aframax as a part of the Merger was offset by the Company's sale of a 2001-built Aframax in November 2020.

Vessel expenses increased by $0.1 million to $24.4 million in the third quarter of 2021 from $24.3 million in the third quarter of 2020. Such increase reflects an approximately $7.8 million increase in the Suezmax fleet due to the additions to the fleet described above. This increase was substantively offset by (i) a $2.7 million reduction in the VLCC fleet principally relating to the vessel sales discussed above and (ii) a $2.7 million reduction in the Panamax fleet that reflects the sales of a 2002-built and a 2003-built Panamax during August 2021, and a reduction of $1.0 million in drydock deviation costs from what was incurred in the prior year's quarter.Charter hire expenses decreased by $0.6 million to $4.1 million from $4.7 million in the third quarter of 2020. Depreciation and amortization increased by $1.1 million to $16.0 million in the current quarter from $14.9 million in the prior year's quarter. Such increase resulted from the additions to the Suezmax and Aframax fleets noted above, along with the impacts of scrubber installations and drydockings performed during 2020 and 2021. These increases were offset to a large extent by the vessel sales noted above and impairment charges recorded in December 2020.

Excluding depreciation and amortization, the reversal of expected credit losses and general and administrative expenses, operating income for the Crude Tankers Lightering business was $1.2 million for the third quarter of 2021 compared to $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2020.

During the first nine months of 2021, TCE revenues for the Crude Tankers segment decreased by $172.7 million or 63%, to $101.8 million from $274.5 million in the first nine months of 2020, principally as a result of the market factors described above which resulted in significantly lower average blended rates across all the Crude Tankers sectors aggregating approximately $166.6 million. Also contributing to the decrease was an aggregate 722-day decrease in VLCC and Aframax revenue days, which had the effect of decreasing TCE revenues by $35.6 million and was driven by the vessel sales described above along with the additional impact of the sale of a 2002-built Aframax in January 2020, partially offset by 125 fewer offhire days in the current year's period. The reduction in current period offhire days was principally driven by fewer VLCC out-of-service days for scrubber installations in the current period. Serving to partially offset such declines were the Suezmaxes and Aframax added to the Company's fleet as a result of the Merger, as noted above.

Vessel expenses decreased by $7.9 million to $65.3 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $73.2 million in the corresponding period of 2020. The primary driver of the net decrease were the vessel sales referred to above. Charter hire expenses decreased by $2.5 million to $12.2 million from $14.7 million in the prior year's period. Consistent with the quarter-over-quarter comparison noted above, such decrease related to a reduction in short-term time chartered-in vessels in the Crude Tankers Lightering business as a result of lower anticipated lightering activity levels in the current year's period. Depreciation and amortization decreased by $1.8 million to $42.0 million in the current period from $43.8 million in the prior year's period. The drivers of such decline were the vessel sales and 2020 impairment charges discussed above.

44

INTERNATIONAL SEAWAYS, INC.

Excluding depreciation and amortization, the reversal of expected credit losses and general and administrative expenses, operating income for the Crude Tankers Lightering business was $3.6 million for the first nine months of 2021 and $5.5 million for the first nine months of 2020. The decrease in the current period's operating income as compared to the prior year's period primarily reflects lower levels of lightering activity in the current period. During the current year's period, 253 service support only lighterings were performed, as compared to 290 service support only lighterings in the prior year's period. Additionally, during the prior year's period the Crude Tankers Lightering business utilized its chartered-in Aframaxes on three spot voyages.

(1) During the 2021 and 2020 periods, each of the Company's LR1s participated in the Panamax International Pool and transported crude oil cargoes exclusively.
(2) During the three months ended September 30, 2021, MRs acquired by the Company through the Merger were employed on transitional voyages in the spot market prior to delivering to pools. These transitional voyages are excluded from the tables above.

During the third quarter of 2021, TCE revenues for the Product Carriers segment increased by $24.0 million, or 168%, to $38.2 million from $14.2 million in the third quarter of 2020. In conjunction with the Merger, the Company acquired 44 MRs. The Company subsequently sold seven of the MRs during the third quarter of 2021. The net effect of these transactions was the driver of a 2,719-day increase in MR revenue days during the current year's quarter, which contributed a $37.0 million days-based increase in TCE revenues. The Company also acquired six Handysize vessels in the Merger, which contributed a total of $1.6 million in TCE revenues during the period. Partially offsetting such increases were period-over-period decreases in average daily blended rates earned by the MR and LR1 fleet sectors, which accounted for a rates-based decrease in TCE revenues of approximately $14.7 million.

46

INTERNATIONAL SEAWAYS, INC.

Vessel expenses increased by $26.6 million to $33.8 million in the third quarter of 2021 from $7.2 million in the third quarter of 2020. Such increase reflects increases of approximately $22.8 million and $5.1 million in the MR and Handysize fleets, respectively, primarily driven by the additions to the fleet described above. Depreciation and amortization increased by $5.7 million to $9.8 million in the current quarter from $4.1 million in the prior year's quarter. Such increase resulted primarily from the additions to the MR and Handysize fleets noted above.

During the first nine months of 2021, TCE revenues for the Product Carriers segment decreased by $13.5 million to $61.0 million from $74.5 million in the first nine months of 2020. Approximately $54.3 million of such decrease was attributable to decreases in the average daily blended rates earned across all Product Carrier fleets. Also contributing to the decline in TCE revenues was a $2.9 million days-based decrease in the LR1 fleet that resulted principally from 150 more drydock days in the current year's period, partially offset by $0.5 million in loss of hire proceeds received in the first quarter of 2021 and the impact of the purchase of a 2009-built LR1 that was delivered to the Company in February 2020. Serving to further offset the above net decreases was a $42.2 million days-based increase in the MR fleet and TCE revenues for the Handysize fleet of $1.6 million, each of which was driven by the Merger.

The $4.5 million decrease in charter hire expenses during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the same period of 2020 was due to the redelivery of three time chartered in MRs to their owners between March and July 2020. The drivers of the increases in vessel expenses and depreciation and amortization as compared to the prior year's period are consistent with those described in the quarter-over-quarter discussion above.

General and Administrative Expenses:

During the third quarter of 2021, general and administrative expenses increased by $0.8 million to $8.2 million from $7.4 million in the third quarter of 2020. The primary drivers for such increase were related to the Merger and comprised of (i) increased rental costs of $0.3 million relating to the legacy office space of Diamond S, which will not be a recurring cost as the lease for such office space was terminated effective September 30, 2021, (ii) increased insurance costs resulting from the Merger of $0.4 million, and (iii) increased communications and technology expenses of $0.2 million.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, general and administrative expenses increased by $1.7 million to $23.2 million from $21.5 million for the same period in 2020. The primary drivers for such increase were consistent with those described in the quarter-over-quarter discussion above. Also contributing to the increase was the recognition during the first quarter of 2021 of $0.7 million of previously deferred costs related to the Company's filing of a Form S-3 registration statement in October 2018, as the Company determined it to be probable that securities would not be issued under such registration statement prior to its expiry in October 2021.

Other Income/(Expense):

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021 other income was $0.4 million compared with other expense of $13.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The nine months ended September 30, 2020 includes a prepayment fee of $1.0 millionrelated to the repurchase of the 10.75% Subordinated Notesand a write-off of $12.5 millionof unamortized original issue discount and deferred financing costs associated with the payoff of the 2017 Term Loan, the ABN Term Loan Facility and repurchase of the 10.75% Subordinated Notes during the first quarter of 2020, which were treated as extinguishments, and prepayment fees of $0.2 million and a write-off of $0.6 million of unamortized deferred financing costsassociated with the payoff of the Transition Term Loan Facilityin August 2020, which was treated as an extinguishment.Other income/(expense) for both periods also includes net actuarial gains and currency gains or losses associated with the retirement benefit obligation in the United Kingdom.

Interest Expense:

Interest expense was $10.6 million and $8.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter increase is primarily attributable to $3.8 million interest expense of theAmended and Restated $525 Million

Credit Agreement, Amended and Restated $360 Million Credit Agreementand the $66 Million Credit Facility that were assumed in connection with the Merger, partially offset by the impact of the $40.0 million payoff of the $390 Million Facility Transition Term Loan in August 2020 and regular quarterly principal repayments. Interest expense decreased by $4.0 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2021 to $24.9 million compared to $28.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, as a result of lower average outstanding debt balances in the current year period compared to the 2020 period, which included the aforementioned impact of the$40.0 million payoff of the $390 Million Facility Transition Term Loan, and the use of cash in the January 2020 refinancing to reduce outstanding debt balances. In addition, lower average margins and interest rates on the refinanced portion of debt entered into by the Company during the first quarter of 2020 and lower average LIBOR rates during the first nine months of 2021 compared with the corresponding periods of 2020, contributed to the decreases in interest expense in the current year periods. See Note 10, "Debt," in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements for further information on the Company's debt facilities.

Taxes:

The Company qualifies for an exemption from U.S. federal income taxes under Section 883 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code") and U.S. Treasury Department regulations for the 2021 calendar year as less than 50 percent of the total value of the Company's stock has been held by one or more shareholders who own 5% or more of the Company's stock for more than half of the days of 2021. There can be no assurance at this time that INSW will continue to qualify for the Section 883 exemption beyond calendar year 2021. Should the Company not qualify for the exemption in the future, INSW will be subject to U.S. federal income taxation of 4% of its U.S. source shipping income on a gross basis without the benefit of deductions. Shipping income that is attributable to transportation that begins or ends, but that does not both begin and end, in the U.S. will be considered to be 50% derived from sources within the United States. Shipping income attributable to transportation that both begins and ends in the U.S. would be considered to be 100% derived from sources within the United States, but INSW does not and cannot engage in transportation that gives rise to such income.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA:

EBITDA represents net income/(loss) before interest expense, income taxes and depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA consists of EBITDA adjusted for the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented to provide investors with meaningful additional information that management uses to monitor ongoing operating results and evaluate trends over comparative periods. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent, and should not be considered a substitute for, net income or cash flows from operations determined in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results reported under GAAP. Some of the limitations are:

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; and
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt.

While EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used by companies as a measure of operating results and performance, neither of those items as prepared by the Company is necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.

Liquidity and Sources of Capital:

Our business is capital intensive. Our ability to successfully implement our strategy is dependent on the continued availability of capital on attractive terms. In addition, our ability to successfully operate our business to meet near-term and long-term debt repayment obligations is dependent on maintaining sufficient liquidity.

Liquidity

Working capital at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 was approximately negative $52.0 million and positive $148.0 million, respectively. Current liabilities include current installments of long-term debt of $220.8 million and $61.5 million at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. Such amounts are excluded from the definition of current liabilities for purposes of the working capital covenant in the Company's debt facilities. Current assets are highly liquid, consisting principally of cash, interest-bearing deposits and receivables.

The Company's total cash decreased by $83.1 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2021. This decrease reflects cash used in operating activities of $49.0 million, $44.7 million in expenditures for vessels and other property including transaction costs incurred and paid by the Company in connection with the Merger and construction costs for three dual-fuel LNG VLCCs, $6.9 million net working capital deposits made to commercial pools in which the Company's vessels operate, scheduled principal amortization for the Company's debt facilities totaling $112.4 million, $14.2 million in net repayments on revolving credit facilities, $4.0 million in cash settlement payments on derivatives containing other-than-insignificant financing elements, and cash dividends of $37.9 million. Such cash outflows were partially offset by proceeds from disposal of vessels and other property of $113.5 million, proceeds from issuance of debt, net of issuance and deferred financing costs of $19.5 million, and cash acquired, net of equity issuance costs related to merger of $54.2 million.

Our cash and cash equivalents balance generally exceed Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insured limits. We place our cash and cash equivalents in what we believe to be credit-worthy financial institutions. In addition, certain of our money market accounts invest in U.S. Treasury securities or other obligations issued or guaranteed by the U.S. government or its agencies, floating rate and variable demand notes of U.S. and foreign corporations, commercial paper rated in the highest category by Moody's Investor Services and Standard & Poor's, certificates of deposit and time deposits, asset-backed securities, and repurchase agreements.

49

INTERNATIONAL SEAWAYS, INC.

As of September 30, 2021, we had total liquidity on a consolidated basis of $172.6 million comprised of $132.6 million of cash (including $23.7 million of restricted cash) and $40.0 million of undrawn revolver capacity.

Restricted cash of $23.7 million as of September 30, 2021 represents legally restricted cash relating to the Sinosure Credit Facility, the $66 Million Credit Facility, and the Macquarie Credit Facility. Such facilities stipulate that cash accounts be maintained which are limited in their use to pay expenses related to drydocking the vessels and servicing the debt facilities.

As of September 30, 2021, we had total debt outstanding (net of original issue discount and deferred financing costs) of $1,108.4 million and net debt to total capitalization (including noncontrolling interests) of 44.0%, compared with 24.8% at December 31, 2020.

The Company was not in compliance with the consolidated interest expense coverage ratio financial covenant contained in the Company's debt facilities for the Test Date ending on September 30, 2021. As described below, we completed alternative financing on the six VLCCs that collateralized the Sinosure Credit Facility and simultaneously prepaid and terminated the Sinosure Credit Facility in order to both increase liquidity and remedy the covenant noncompliance that existed for the Test Date ending on September 30, 2021.

Sources, Uses and Management of Capital

We have maintained a strong balance sheet, which has allowed us to take advantage of attractive strategic opportunities during the low end of the tanker cycle and we have maintained what we believe to be a prudent financial leverage for the current point in the tanker cycle.

In addition to future operating cash flows, our other future sources of funds are proceeds from issuances of equity securities, additional borrowings as permitted under our loan agreements and proceeds from the opportunistic sales of our vessels. Our current uses of funds are to fund working capital requirements, maintain the quality of our vessels, purchase vessels, comply with international shipping standards and environmental laws and regulations, repay or repurchase our outstanding loan facilities, pay a regular quarterly cash dividend, and repurchase shares of our common stock from time-to-time.

The following is a summary of the significant capital allocation activities the Company executed during the first nine months of 2021 and sources of capital the Company has at its disposal for future use as well as the Company's current commitments for future uses of capital:

On March 11, 2021, the Company entered into agreements to construct three dual-fuel LNG VLCCs at Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering's shipyard. The VLCCs will be able to burn LNG in their power plant, which will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Upon delivery to the Company in the first quarter of 2023, the vessels will be employed on seven-year time charter contracts with an oil major - Shell - at a rate that consists of a floor rate plus profit sharing. The total construction cost for the vessels will be approximately $290 million, which will be paid for through a combination of long-term financing and cash on hand. Accumulated expenditures totaling $29.4 million have been made in connection with the construction contracts as of September 30, 2021. The Company currently has a financing commitment from a financial institution covering approximately 85% of the vessel construction costs. Such commitment is subject to finalization of definitive documents, and other customary conditions for similar transactions. We expect to execute and close on the financing during the fourth quarter of 2021.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company's Board of Directors declared and paid regular quarterly cash dividends of $0.06 per share. The Company's Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share of common stock on November 8, 2021. The dividend will be paid on December 23, 2021 to shareholders of record as of December 9, 2021.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company sold and delivered a 2002-built VLCC, a 2002-built Panamax, a 2003-built Panamax, and seven MRs acquired as part of the Merger, which were built between 2006 and 2009, for net proceeds of $113.5 million. The sale and delivery of the seven MRs during the three months ended September 30, 2021 reduced the number of vessels collateralizing the Amended and Restated $525 Million Credit Agreement and the Amended and Restated $360 Million Credit Agreement to 34 and 21 vessels, respectively, and also resulted in a permanent reduction of the drawdown availability under the $525

50

INTERNATIONAL SEAWAYS, INC.

Million Facility Revolving Loan and the $360 Million Facility Revolving Loan of $5.8 million and $8.4 million, respectively. As of September 30, 2021, both of these revolving facilities were fully drawn. Also, as a result of these vessel sales, total quarterly principal amortization under the Amended and Restated $525 Million Credit Agreement and the Amended and Restated $360 Million Credit Agreement has decreased from $30.9 million to $28.2 million per quarter.

In addition, the Company entered into memoranda of agreements for the sale of three additional 2002-built Panamaxes and one 2007-built Handysize product carrier acquired as part of the Merger for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $29.0 million. One of the Panamaxes was delivered to its buyer in November 2021, and the other three vessels are expected to be delivered to buyers by the end of the fourth quarter of 2021.

As described above, the Merger (see Note 2, "Merger Transaction," to the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements) with Diamond S became effective on July 16, 2021 and resulted in the acquisition of 64 vessels and their associated assets and liabilities in exchange for the issuance of 22,536,647 shares of INSW Common Stock. The Company paid a $31.5 million special dividend on July 15, 2021 to INSW shareholders of record as of July 14, 2021 prior to the Merger.

On September 30, 2021, the Company, Seaways Shipping II Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, and ACG Guarantor's three subsidiaries (the "Borrowers") executed a credit agreement for a $20.0 million term loan facility with Macquarie Bank Limited, London Branch, as lender, facility agent and security agent (the "Macquarie Credit Facility"). The Macquarie Credit Facility is comprised of three loans, each secured by a first lien on one of three LR1s owned by the Company, along with their respective earnings, insurances and certain other assets, as well as certain additional assets of the Company's subsidiaries. The facility bears interest at LIBOR plus a margin of 3.825%. The loan amortizes in quarterly installments varying in amount between $0.5 million to $0.9 million commencing December 31, 2021, and matures on March 31, 2025, with a balloon payment of approximately $11.7 million due at maturity. The maturity date for the loan is subject to acceleration upon the occurrence of certain events as described in the credit agreement. The Macquarie Credit Facility is guaranteed by the Company and Seaways Shipping II Corporation. The full $20.0 million was drawn down on September 30, 2021.

On October 26, 2021, the Company entered into lease financing arrangements with Ocean Yield ASA for the sale and leaseback of the six VLCCs that collateralized the Sinosure Credit Facility, for a net sale price of $374.6 million in total, which represents 90% of the fair value of the six VLCCs. The proceeds of the sale will be recognized as a financing obligation. This refinancing generated incremental liquidity of approximately $150 million for the Company. The proceeds from the transactions, which were received on November 8, 2021, were used to prepay the $228.4 million outstanding loan balance under the Sinosure Credit Facility, with the balance intended for general corporate purposes. Under these lease financing arrangements, each of the six VLCCs is subject to a 10-year bareboat charter with purchase options exercisable commencing at the end of the fourth year and purchase obligations at the end of the 10-year term. Charter hire under the arrangement is comprised of a fixed monthly repayment amount of $2.4 million plus a variable interest component calculated based on three-month LIBOR plus a margin of 4.05%. The terms and conditions, including financial covenants, of the arrangements are in-line with those of the Company's existing debt facilities.

The Company is in the process of dissolving NT Suez Holdco LLC and taking full ownership of one of the two Suezmaxes owned by the joint venture. In conjunction with such process, the Company is refinancing its half of the $66 Million Credit Facility on a long-term basis. The entire remaining outstanding principal amount of the $66 Million Credit Facility is reflected as a current liability in the accompanying condensed balance sheet as of September 30, 2021. This refinancing is also expected to result in the release of the Company's share of restricted cash attributable to this facility. The dissolution and refinancing are expected to be completed before the scheduled November 18, 2021 maturity of the $66 Million Credit Facility.

As of September 30, 2021, the Company has vessel construction commitments for the three dual-fuel LNG VLCCs discussed above. The Company also has contractual commitments for the purchase and installation of ballast water treatment systems on 25 vessels. The Company's aggregate purchase commitments for vessel construction and betterments as of September 30, 2021, are presented in the Aggregate Contractual Obligations Table below.

Outlook

The first nine months of 2021 has proven to be a weaker rate environment for tankers than the same period in 2020 although we continue to expect that oil supply and demand will start to come back into balance during the first half of 2022, creating a market rebound when worldwide demand for oil increases. Oil demand has increased considerably since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. With strong economic growth and high vaccination rates, oil demand is expected to continue to grow. With expected growth in demand, during the third quarter of 2021 OPEC+ announced plans to steadily raise production. Diminishing oil stocks and increased oil supply should increase tanker demand and strengthen freight markets.

We believe our balance sheet positions us to support our operations over the next twelve months as we continue to advance our disciplined capital allocation strategy and execute on various liquidity raising measures in the remainder of 2021.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

As of September 30, 2021, the FSO Joint Venture had total bank debt outstanding of $52.4 million, of which $26.2 million was nonrecourse to the Company.

The FSO Joint Venture is a party to a number of contracts: (a) the FSO Joint Venture is an obligor pursuant to a guarantee facility agreement dated as of July 14, 2017, by and among, the FSO Joint Venture, ING Belgium NV/SA, as issuing bank, and Euronav and INSW, as guarantors (the "Guarantee Facility"); (b) the FSO Joint Venture is party to two service contracts with NOC (the "NOC Service Contracts") and (c) the FSO Joint Venture is a borrower under a $220 million secured credit facility by and among TI Africa and TI Asia, as joint and several borrowers, ABN AMRO Bank N.V. and ING Belgium SA/NV, as Lenders, Mandated Lead Arrangers and Swap Banks, and ING Bank N.V., as Agent and as Security Trustee. INSW severally guarantees the obligations of the FSO Joint Venture pursuant to the Guarantee Facility.

The FSO Joint Venture drew down on a $220 million credit facility in April 2018. The Company provided a guarantee for the $110 million FSO Term Loan portion of the facility, which has an interest rate of LIBOR plus two percent and amortizes through July 2022 and September 2022. INSW's guarantee of the FSO Term Loan has financial covenants that provide (i) INSW's Liquid Assets shall not be less than the higher of $50 million and 5% of Total Indebtedness of INSW, (ii) INSW shall have Cash of at least $30 million and (iii) INSW shall be compliance with the Loan to Value Test (as such capitalized terms are defined in the Company guarantee). As of September 30, 2021, the maximum aggregate potential amount of future payments (undiscounted) that INSW could be required to make in relation to its equity method investees secured bank debt and interest rate swap obligations was $26.6 million and the carrying value of the Company's guaranty in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets was nil.

In addition, and pursuant to an agreement between INSW and the trustees of the OSG Ship Management (UK) Ltd. Retirement Benefits Plan (the "Scheme"), INSW guarantees the obligations of INSW Ship Management UK Ltd., a subsidiary of INSW, to make payments to the Scheme.

Risk Management:

The Company is exposed to market risk from changes in interest rates, which could impact its results of operations and financial condition. The Company manages this exposure to market risk through its regular operating and financing activities and, when deemed appropriate, through the use of derivative financial instruments. To manage its interest rate risk in a cost-effective manner, the Company, from time-to-time, enters into interest rate swap, collar or cap agreements, in which it agrees to exchange various combinations of fixed and variable interest rates based on agreed upon notional amounts or to receive payments if floating interest rates rise above a specified cap rate. The Company uses such derivative financial instruments as risk management tools and not for speculative or trading purposes. In addition, derivative financial instruments are entered into with a diversified group of major financial institutions in order to manage exposure to nonperformance on such instruments by the counterparties.

The Company uses interest rate swaps for the management of interest rate risk exposure associated with changes in LIBOR interest rate payments due on its credit facilities.

Based on that evaluation, the Company's management, including the CEO and CFO, concluded that the Company's current disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of September 30, 2021 to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports the Company files or submits under the Exchange Act is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to the Company's management, including the CEO and CFO, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There was no change in the Company's internal control over financial reporting during the three months ending September 30, 2021 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.
