Diana Shipping Inc., a global shipping company specializing in the ownership  and operation of dry bulk vessels, has announced that the company, through a separate wholly-owned subsidiary, took delivery of the m/v Artemis (formerly Shoyo), a 2006 built Panamax dry bulk carrier of  76,942 dwt that the company entered into an agreement to purchase in  May 2013.

As previously announced, the m/v Artemis is time chartered  to Rio Tinto Shipping Pty Ltd., Melbourne, Australia, at a gross  charter rate of $9,375 per day, minus a 3.75% commission paid to  third parties, for a period of minimum 22 months to  maximum 26 months. The charter commenced today.

This employment is anticipated to generate approximately $6.2  million of gross revenue for the minimum scheduled period of the charter.

Including the newly delivered Artemis, Diana Shipping Inc.'s fleet  currently consists of 34 dry bulk vessels (two Newcastlemax, nine Capesize, three Post-Panamax, two Kamsarmax and 18 Panamax). The Company also expects to take delivery of two newbuilding Ice Class Panamax dry bulk vessels  during the fourth quarter of 2013 and the first quarter of 2014, and two new-building Newcastlemax dry bulk vessels during the second quarter of 2016. As of today, the combined carrying capacity of our fleet, excluding the four vessels not yet delivered, is approximately 3.8  million dwt with a weighted average age of 6.6 years.
