(Posted on 11/10/18)
Scorpio Bulkers Inc. have announced that the Company has received a commitment from Nordea Bank Abp, acting through its New York branch, and DVB Bank SE for a loan facility of up to $90.0 million. The loan facility will be used to finance up to 60% of the fair market value of six Ultramax dry bulk vessels (SBI Orion, SBI Hyperion, SBI Tethys, SBI Hercules, SBI Samson and SBI Phoenix).
The loan facility has a final maturity date of five years from signing date and bears interest at LIBOR plus a margin of 2.35% per annum. This loan facility, which is expected to close within October 2018, would increase the Company’s liquidity by approximately $28.0 million after repayment of the vessels’ existing debt. The terms and conditions are similar to those set forth in the Company's existing credit facilities and the loan facility is subject to customary conditions precedent and the execution of definitive documentation.
Scorpio Bulkers Inc. is a provider of marine transportation of dry bulk commodities. Scorpio Bulkers Inc. has an operating fleet of 57 vessels consisting of 56 wholly-owned or finance leased drybulk vessels (including 19 Kamsarmax vessels and 37 Ultramax vessels), and one time chartered-in Ultramax vessel.
