OceanFrieght Inc. Amends Credit Facility

Thursday, January 15, 2009

OceanFreight Inc., (NASDAQ:OCNF) a global provider of seaborne transportation services announced that it has entered into an amendatory agreement to its $325m senior secured credit facility with Nordea Bank Norge ASA, as Administrative Agent, under which the lenders have agreed to an amendment and waiver of the collateral maintenance coverage ratio covenant contained in the agreement.

Anthony Kandylidis, Chief Executive Officer of the Company commented “Our proactive approach with our bankers has allowed us to enter into this amendment to our loan agreement and achieve a lower collateral maintenance coverage ratio in light of the recent decline in vessel values, particularly in the dry bulk sector. Given the challenging financial and shipping landscape, this agreement places one uncertainty behind us and positions us to capitalize on opportunities as they may arise in the future. ”

OceanFreight Inc. was incorporated in 2006 to acquire secondhand vessels and deploy them on medium and long term charters. The company began operations with the delivery of its first vessel in June 2007 and currently owns and operates a fleet of thirteen vessels, consisting of one Capesize drybulk carrier, eight Panamax drybulk carriers, one Suezmax tanker and three Aframax tankers with a total carrying capacity of 1,170,633 dwt.
