Genco Takes Delivery of New Capesize

Monday, January 05, 2009

Genco Shipping & Trading Limited (NYSE:GNK) has taken delivery of the Genco Hadrian, a 170,500 dwt Capesize newbuilding. The Genco Hadrian is the sixth vessel to be delivered to the Company under Genco's previously announced agreement on July 18, 2007 to acquire nine Capesize vessels from companies within the Metrostar Management Corporation group.

The Company has commenced a time charter upon delivery of the Genco Hadrian with Cargill International S.A., for 46 to 62 months at a gross rate of $65,000 per day, less a 5% third party brokerage commission. The charter, which is due to expire between October 2012 and February 2014, also includes a 50 percent index-based profit sharing component.

Genco has drawn upon its 10-year, $1.4b revolving credit facility to finance the remaining balance for the Genco Hadrian of $96.8m. The Company expects the delivery of three additional newbuilding vessels by the end of 2009 and intends to utilize the undrawn portion of its $1.4b revolving credit facility as well as cash flow from operations to fund these acquisitions.
