Seanergy announces additional share buybacks

Seanergy announces additional share buybacks

(Posted on 01/07/22)

 Seanergy Maritime Holdings Corp. has announced that the Board of Directors has authorized an additional share repurchase plan (the “Plan”), under which the Company may repurchase up to $5 million of its outstanding common shares, convertible notes or warrants.

Seanergy Maritime Holdings Corp. is the only pure-play Capesize ship-owner publicly listed in the US.

Moreover, the Company’s CEO, Mr. Stamatis Tsantanis, intends to purchase an additional aggregate of up to 500,000 common shares of the Company in the open market. Within the last 7 months, the Company has already completed two repurchase plans totalling $26.7 million that were utilised for buybacks of its common shares, convertible notes and warrants. Stamatis Tsantanis, the Company’s Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Our management and board of directors believe that our current share price is significantly undervalued. Considering this, we feel that authorizing a share buyback is now a well-timed capital allocation decision. “In addition, I intend to buy an additional 500,000 of Seanergy’s common shares in the open market on top of my previous open-market purchases, which reflects my strong confidence in the Company, its fundamentals and the Capesize market. “Over the last 18 months, we have concluded a series of significant transactions, resulting in a great fleet of high-quality Capesize vessels and a solid balance sheet position.

The Company is optimally positioned to capitalise on the strong outlook of our sector.” The Plan The Company may repurchase common shares in open-market transactions pursuant to Rule 10b18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or pursuant to a trading plan adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5?1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Any repurchases pursuant to the Plan will be made at management’s discretion at prices considered to be attractive and in the best interests of both the Company and its shareholders, subject to the availability of stock, general market conditions, the trading price of the stock, alternative uses for capital, applicable securities laws and the Company’s financial performance. The Plan may be suspended, terminated, or modified at any time for any reason, including market conditions, the cost of repurchasing shares, the availability of alternative investment opportunities, liquidity, and other factors deemed appropriate.

These factors may also affect the timing and amount of share repurchases. The Plan does not obligate the Company to purchase any of its shares, and the Company may repurchase other outstanding securities of the Company, including its outstanding convertible notes or warrants, under the Plan. The Board of Directors’ authorization of the Plan is effective immediately and expires on December 31, 2023. About Seanergy Maritime Holdings Corp.
