Maritrans Announces New Financing Arrangement

Monday, December 03, 2001
Maritrans Inc. announced that they have entered into a new five-year financing agreement with a syndicate of financial institutions. Mellon Bank led the transaction and was joined by Fleet Bank, Hibernia Bank and SunTrust Bank. The new facility consists of a $45 million term loan and a $40 million revolving credit facility. The new debt will have floating interest rates and should cost significantly less than the previous 9.25 percent fixed-rate indenture that was paid off in October. This new financing is another step in Maritrans' efforts to improve the efficiency of its balance sheet and will facilitate the ongoing capital reinvestment program.
