Set forth herein as Exhibit 1 is a copy of Announcement No. 8 - 2007 -
Agreement on the acquisition of the shipping company OMI Corporation - issued by
A/S STEAMSHIP COMPANY TORM (the "Company") to The Copenhagen Stock Exchange on
April 17, 2007.

                                                                       Exhibit 1


                                                                   17 April 2007

Agreement on the acquisition of the shipping company OMI Corporation

A/S Dampskibsselskabet TORM (TORM) has in cooperation with the shipping company
Teekay Shipping Corporation(Teekay) today signed an agreement with the shipping
company OMI Corporation (OMI), located in Stamford, Connecticut, and listed on
the New York Stock Exchange (web site: to acquire the entire
share capital of OMI. The agreement was unanimously approved and recommended by
OMI's Board of Directors.

The agreement with OMI was made with a company established for this purpose and
with a 50-50% ownership between Teekay and TORM.

The price per share is agreed to USD 29.25 corresponding to a total purchase
price of USD 1.8 billion excluding net interest-bearing debt estimated at
USD 400 million end 2006.

The company's fleet consists of 47 modern vessels - of which 13 are Suezmax
crude oil tankers, 15 MR product tankers, 17 Handysize product tankers incl. 2
newbuildings and 2 LR1 vessels.

When the company is taken over by Teekay/TORM during the coming months, it has
been agreed that the Suezmax vessels as well as 8 product tankers will be taken
over by Teekay, whereas the remaining 26 product tanker will be taken over by
TORM. The agreement is subject to the acceptance from OMI shareholders
representing over 50 percent of OMI's outstanding shares, usual reservations and
approval by the authorities.

In addition to giving TORM a very modern and uniformed product tanker fleet, the
acquisition will ensure TORM's presence in the American market. Furthermore, OMI
has a technical organization in India, which still will be at TORM's disposal
and thereby ensure the neces-sary continuity for the acquired fleet most of
which is chartered out to oil companies on time charter for an average duration
of 2 years.

Teekay and TORM will in close cooperation ensure that the acquisition of the
company takes place in the best possible way in the interest of the employees
and the continued operation of the OMI fleet.

The offer to OMI's shareholders is expected to be circulated on or before 27
April 2007.

TORM's expected pre-tax result for 2007 of USD 780-800 million is not expected
to be affected by the acquisition of OMI. However, transaction and restructuring
costs are not included.

Matters discussed in this release may constitute  forward-looking  statements.
Forward-looking statements reflect our current views with respect to future
events and financial  performance and may include  statements  concerning plans,
objectives,  goals,  strategies,  future  events or performance, and underlying
assumptions and other statements, which are other than statements of historical

The  forward-looking  statements in this release are based upon various
assumptions,  many of which are based, in turn, upon further  assumptions,
including without limitation, management's  examination of historical  operating
trends,  data contained in our records and other data  available  from third
parties. Although TORM believes that these assumptions were reasonable when
made,  because these  assumptions  are inherently  subject to significant
uncertainties  and  contingencies  which are difficult or impossible  to predict
and are beyond our control,  TORM cannot assure you that it will achieve or
accomplish these expectations, beliefs or projections.

Important  factors that, in our view,  could cause actual results to differ
materially from those discussed in the forward-looking  statements  include the
strength of world economies and currencies,  changes in charter hire rates
and vessel values,  changes in demand for "tonne miles" of crude oil carried by
oil tankers,  the effect of changes in OPEC's  petroleum  production  levels and
worldwide oil consumption and storage, changes in demand that may affect
attitudes of time charterers to scheduled  and  unscheduled dry-docking, changes
in TORM's  operating  expenses, including bunker prices,  dry-docking and
insurance costs, changes in governmental rules and regulations  including
requirements for double hull tankers or actions taken by regulatory authorities,
potential liability from pending or future litigation, domestic and
international  political conditions,  potential disruption of shipping routes
due to accidents and political events or acts by terrorists.

Risks and uncertainties are further described in reports filed by TORM with the
US Securities and Exchange Commission, including the TORM Annual Report on Form
20-F and its reports on Form 6-K.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
