EURONAV funnelANTWERP, Belgium, 15th October 2014 – Euronav NV (the “Company” or “Euronav”)
(Euronext: EURN) announced today that due to unfavourable current capital market
conditions, it is postponing its contemplated initial public offering of ordinary shares in the
United States and related offer to exchange the company’s outstanding unregistered
ordinary shares in Belgium for ordinary shares registered under the Securities Act of 1933,
as amended.

The company will continue to evaluate the most appropriate timing for the offerings as
market conditions develop.

The registration statements on Form F-1 and Form F-4 relating to these securities have
been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, but have not yet become
effective. The securities may not be sold, nor may offers to buy be accepted, prior to the
time the relevant registration statement becomes effective. This press release does not
constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities issuable
pursuant to the registration statements, nor will there be any sale of these securities in any
state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to
registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
