Teekay Tankers Ltd. (Teekay Tankers or the Company) (NYSE:TNK) today reported adjusted net loss attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers(1) (as detailed in Appendix A to this release) of $4.1 million, or loss of $0.05 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to adjusted net loss attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers of $6.3 million, or $0.08 per share, for the same period in the prior year. The decrease in adjusted net loss attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers is primarily due to stronger spot tanker rates in the second quarter of 2014 as compared to the same period in the prior year, partially offset by a decrease in recognized interest income as a result of the monetization of the Company's investment in term loans in March 2014. Adjusted net loss attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers excludes a number of specific items that had the net effect of increasing net income attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers by $8.7 million, or $0.10 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and decreasing net loss attributed to shareholders of Teekay Tankers by $0.6 million, or $0.01 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2013, as detailed in Appendix A to this release. Including these items, the Company reported, on a GAAP basis, net income attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers of $4.6 million, or $0.05 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to a net loss attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers of $5.7 million, or $0.07 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Net revenues(2) were $40.8 million and $41.0 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2014 and June 30, 2013, respectively.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company reported adjusted net income attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers of $12.8 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to adjusted net loss attributed to the shareholders of Teekay Tankers of $9.9 million, or $0.12 per share, for the same period in the prior year. The increase in adjusted net income attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers is primarily due to the stronger spot tanker rates for the first six months of 2014 compared to the same period in the prior year and an increase in interest income recognized from the Company's investment in term loans, which concluded in March 2014. Adjusted net income attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers excludes a number of specific items that had the net effect of increasing net income attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers by $18.3 million, or $0.22 per share, and decreasing the net loss by $2.2 million or $0.03 per share, for the six month periods ended June 30, 2014 and June 30, 2013, respectively, as detailed in Appendix A to this release. Including these items, the Company reported, on a GAAP basis, net income attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers of $31.0 million, or $0.37 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to net loss attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers of $7.7 million, or $0.09 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Net revenues(2) were $101.1 million and $83.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and June 30, 2013, respectively.

During the second quarter of 2014, the Company generated $9.2 million, or $0.11 per share, of Cash Available for Distribution(3), compared to $5.6 million, or $0.07 per share, in the second quarter of 2013 due to the reasons noted above. On July 3, 2014, Teekay Tankers declared a dividend of $0.03 per share for the second quarter of 2014, which was paid on July 31, 2014 to all shareholders of record on July 18, 2014. Since the Company's initial public offering in December 2007, it has declared dividends in 27 consecutive quarters, which now total $7.365 per share on a cumulative basis.

"As we head into the mid-point of the third quarter of 2014, there has been a significant increase in crude spot tanker rates in recent weeks which has resulted in the highest quarter-to-date third quarter spot rates in the Suezmax and Aframax segments since 2008," commented Kevin Mackay, Chief Executive Officer of Teekay Tankers. "The increase in spot rates is primarily due to an increase in long-haul Suezmax movements from the Atlantic to Pacific, the end of seasonal refinery maintenance, stockpiling due to continued unrest in Iraq, and vessel delays at U.S. Gulf and Mediterranean ports. While we expect rates to soften from the current high levels, we believe that stronger oil demand, limited tanker fleet growth and improving global economic conditions will continue to support a general firming of average spot tanker rates."

"Based on our outlook for the tanker market and expected higher volatility in rates, we have been actively increasing Teekay Tankers' spot rate exposure through new in-charter contracts with favorable rates and optional periods," Mr. Mackay continued. "In addition to the six vessels we have recently in-chartered, as some of our owned vessels currently operating under fixed-rate employment contracts redeliver, we plan to trade more of these vessels in the spot tanker market rather than pursue replacement fixed-rate contracts. With this shift from fixed-rate coverage to increased spot exposure, our fixed-rate coverage for the next 12 months has reduced to 26 percent, down from almost 50 percent a couple years ago, which we believe will allow Teekay Tankers to benefit from any additional spikes in the spot market as we move into the second half of 2014."

Mr. Mackay added, "With the finalization of our 50 percent acquisition of Teekay Operations, Teekay Tankers is evolving into a full-service conventional tanker platform, which we believe will allow us to better serve our customers and generate greater value for our shareholders. Combined with an expected overall firming in spot tankers rates and our shift towards increased spot rate employment, we believe that the additional fee revenue from our ownership in Teekay Operations will further position Teekay Tankers to benefit from a sustained tanker market recovery."

Summary of Recent Developments

Completed the Acquisition of Teekay's Commercial and Technical Operations

On August 1, 2014, Teekay Tankers' completed the acquisition of a 50 percent ownership interest in Teekay Corporation's commercial and technical management operations (Teekay Operations) for approximately $15 million. Consideration for the transaction was paid in shares of Teekay Tankers at a price of $3.70 per share, which represents the trailing 20-day volume-weighted average price at the time of the agreement. Teekay Operations includes direct ownership in three commercially managed tanker pools, which currently generate income from commercially managing a fleet of 84 vessels, and direct ownership in Teekay Marine Limited, which currently generates income from technically managing a fleet of 53 vessels, including vessels owned by the Company.

Fixed-Rate Time Charter Coverage

During the second quarter of 2014, Teekay Tankers secured time charter-in contracts for two Aframax vessels and four Long Range 2 (LR2) product tanker vessels which increased Teekay Tankers' total time charter-in fleet to eight vessels. The new time charter-in contracts have an average daily rate of $15,600 for the Aframax vessels and $15,975 for the LR2 product tanker vessels.

Tanker Market

Crude tanker spot rates in the second quarter of 2014 averaged approximately 20 to 30 percent higher compared to the same period of 2013, reflecting improving tanker market fundamentals and higher fleet utilization compared to the previous year.

Since the beginning of the third quarter of 2014, Aframax and Suezmax spot rates experienced a counter-seasonal rally to the highest levels seen in the month of July since 2008. The third quarter rate spike was primarily due to refinery throughput increasing as seasonal refinery maintenance concluded, coupled with an increase in long-haul Suezmax movements from the Atlantic to Pacific, fear-driven stockpiling due to uncertainty caused by unrest in Iraq, and vessel delays at U.S. Gulf and Mediterranean ports. This significant increase in tanker rates during what is usually a weak part of the year for crude tankers, is a further sign of improving tanker market fundamentals and is a positive signal ahead of the seasonally stronger winter market, which begins in the fourth quarter.

Long Range 2 (LR2) product tanker rates strengthened in the early part of the second quarter due to higher naphtha exports from the Middle East and Europe to Asia before declining in June due to increased competition from cheaper liquefied petroleum gas. Medium Range (MR) product tanker spot rates weakened during the second quarter of 2014 due to a combination of lower U.S. export volumes and the impact of new fleet supply growth.

The global tanker fleet grew by 2.6 million deadweight tonnes (mdwt), or 0.5 percent, in the first half of 2014 compared to 10.8 mdwt, or 2.2 percent, in the same period of 2013. A significant portion of this fleet growth occurred in the MR product tanker sector while the world Suezmax and Aframax crude tanker fleets shrank by a net two vessels, or 0.4 percent, and 13 vessels, or 2.1 percent, respectively, during the first six months of 2014. Taking into account newbuilding orderbook slippage and scrapping, the world tanker fleet is forecasted to grow by approximately 1.2 percent in 2014, the lowest level of tanker fleet growth since 2001, and by approximately 1.6 percent in 2015. The mid-size tanker fleet is forecasted to further reduce in size during the second half of 2014 and into 2015 as scrapping of older vessels is expected to outweigh new deliveries into the fleet.

In its July 2014 "World Economic Outlook Update," the International Monetary Fund revised its outlook for global GDP growth in 2014 downward from 3.7 percent to 3.4 percent, with global GDP growth in 2015 unchanged at 4.0 percent. The downward revision is mainly due to a weaker than expected GDP growth in the United States for the first quarter of 2014 as a result of extreme weather events, softening domestic demand in China, geopolitical instability between Russia and the Ukraine, and a less optimistic growth outlook for several emerging markets.

Global oil demand is projected to grow by 1.2 million barrels per day (mb/d) in 2014 and 1.4 mb/d in 2015 based on the average of forecasts by the International Energy Agency, the Energy Information Administration, and OPEC. Accelerating global oil demand growth coupled with very low tanker fleet growth, particularly in the crude sectors, is expected to drive an increase in tanker fleet utilization and spot tanker rates during the remainder of 2014 and 2015.

(1) In 2010, the Company invested in two term loans (Loans) secured by two  
    2010-built VLCC vessels. The borrowers under the Loans were in default  
    on their interest payment obligations since the first quarter of 2013,  
    and subsequently, in default of the repayment of the loan principal from
    the loan maturity date in July 2013. In late-March 2014, the Company    
    took full ownership of the vessels held as collateral in satisfaction of
    the Loans and accrued interest and recorded the vessels at their fair   
    value at that date. As a result, the Company recognized an additional   
    $9.1 million of interest income owing under the Loans for the three     
    months ended March 31, 2014.                                            
(2) In early May 2014, the Company sold to Tanker Investments Limited (TIL) 
    two wholly-owned subsidiaries, each of which owns one VLCC, for         
    aggregate proceeds of $154.0 million plus related working capital on    
    closing of $1.7 million. In the second quarter of 2014, the Company     
    recognized a $10.0 million gain on this transaction.                    
(3) Includes realized losses relating to interest rate swaps of $2.5        
    million, $2.5 million, and $2.5 million for the three months ended June 
    30, 2014, March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2013, respectively, and $5.0      
    million and $4.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, and    
    June 30, 2013, respectively.                                            
(4) Earnings (loss) per share attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers
    is determined by dividing (a) net income (loss) of the Company by (b)   
    the weighted-average number of shares outstanding during the applicable 
    period.

Set forth below is a reconciliation of the Company's unaudited adjusted net (loss) income attributable to the shareholders of Teekay Tankers, a non-GAAP financial measure, to net income (loss) as determined in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company's financial performance. The items below are also typically excluded by securities analysts in their published estimates of the Company's financial results. Adjusted net (loss) income attributable to the shareholders of Teekay Tankers is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

    market value of derivative instruments that are not designated as hedges
    for accounting purposes, including unrealized gains on losses on        
    interest rate swaps and the TIL stock purchase warrant.                 
(3) In 2010, the Company invested in two term loans (Loans) secured by two  
    2010-built VLCC vessels. The borrowers under the Loans were in default  
    on their interest payment obligations since the first quarter of 2013,  
    and subsequently, in default of the repayment of the loan principal from
    the loan maturity date in July 2013. In late-March 2014, the Company    
    took full ownership of the vessels held as collateral in satisfaction of
    the Loans and accrued interest and recorded the vessels at their fair   
    value at that date.                                                     
(4) In early May 2014, the Company sold to TIL two wholly-owned             
    subsidiaries, each of which owns one VLCC, for the aggregate proceeds of
    $154.0 million plus related working capital on closing of $1.7 million. 
    The Company recognized a $10.0 million gain on this transaction.        
(5) The amount recorded for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014    
    relates to foreign exchange gains (losses) and a 50-percent portion of  
    an unrealized derivative instrument loss recorded by the High-Q Joint   
    Venture, through which the Company owns a 50 percent interest in one    
    VLCC vessel.                                                            
(6) Reflects the fair value on the initial recognition of the stock purchase
    warrants issued by TIL to the Company during the three months ended     
    March 31, 2014, which were received in connection with the Company's    
    involvement in the formation of TIL.                                    
(7) Reflects the dilution gain from the share issuance completed as part of 
    TIL's initial public offering in March 2014.

Description of Non-GAAP Financial Measure - Net Revenues

Net revenues represents revenues less voyage expenses where voyage expenses are comprised of all expenses relating to certain voyages, including bunker fuel expenses, port fees, cargo loading and unloading expenses, canal tolls, agency fees and commissions. Net revenues is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors to measure the financial performance of shipping companies; however, it is not required by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to revenues or any other indicator of the Company's performance required by GAAP.

This release contains forward-looking statements (as defined in Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) which reflect management's current views with respect to certain future events and performance, including statements regarding: the crude oil and refined product tanker market fundamentals, including the balance of supply and demand in the tanker market, estimated growth in the world tanker fleet in 2014 and 2015, estimated growth in global oil demand and crude oil tanker demand in 2014, and tanker fleet utilization and spot tanker rates in 2014 and 2015; the Company's financial position and ability to take advantage of growth opportunities in an expected future tanker market recovery; the Company's plans regarding increased spot market exposure; the Company's fixed-rate coverage for the next 12 months; and the expected effects of the Company's acquisition of a 50 percent interest in Teekay Operations. The following factors are among those that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements, which involve risks and uncertainties, and that should be considered in evaluating any such statement: changes in the production of or demand for oil; changes in trading patterns significantly affecting overall vessel tonnage requirements; greater or less than anticipated levels of tanker newbuilding orders and deliveries or greater or less than anticipated rates of tanker scrapping; changes in applicable industry laws and regulations and the timing of implementation of new laws and regulations; the potential for early termination of short- or medium-term contracts and inability of the Company to renew or replace short- or medium-term contracts; changes in interest rates and the financial markets; increases in the Company's expenses, including any dry docking expenses and associated off-hire days; failure to realize expected benefits of the acquisition of an interest in Teekay Operations; failure of Teekay Tankers Board of Directors and its Conflicts Committee to accept future acquisitions of vessels that may be offered by Teekay Corporation or third parties; and other factors discussed in Teekay Tankers' filings from time to time with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013. The Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect any change in the Company's expectations with respect thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.
