LONDON, January 26, 2022 - Niels G. Stolt-Nielsen has informed the Board of
Stolt-Nielsen Limited of his wish to step down from his role as Chief Executive
Officer. He will continue as CEO and as a Director on the Board until the
appointment process for a successor has been completed. Mr Stolt-Nielsen has
served as Chief Executive Officer of Stolt-Nielsen Limited since November 2000
and has been a Director since 1996.

The intention is that once a suitable replacement is found, Mr Niels G. Stolt-
Nielsen will assume the role of Chairman of the Board of Directors, subject to
shareholder approval, replacing Mr Samuel Cooperman. Mr Cooperman has served as
Chairman since 2016 and will remain as a Board Director, Chairman of the Audit
Committee and a member of the Compensation Committee.

Niels G. Stolt-Nielsen said: "I joined Stolt-Nielsen in 1990 and have served as
CEO since 2000. It has been a privilege to lead and work with talented and
dedicated individuals throughout the organisation for so long. However, I feel
now is the right time for me to step aside and let a fresh pair of hands take
the Company forward. I am announcing my intention today to allow the Board
sufficient time to appoint my successor and to allow for a smooth handover.  I
intend to continue to work closely with the Board and the leadership team to
ensure the successful continuity of the businesses to the benefit of all
stakeholders. I have dedicated my career to Stolt-Nielsen Limited and will
continue to do so in the future."
