Baltic Trading Takes Delivery of Drybulk Vessels

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Baltic Trading Limited (NYSE: BALT), a drybulk company focused on the spot market, has taken delivery of the Baltic Bear, a Capesize newbuilding, and the Baltic Jaguar, a 2009-built Supramax vessel. The Baltic Bear and the Baltic Jaguar are the third and fourth vessels, respectively, to be delivered to the company under agreements signed in February 2010 to acquire four 2009-built Supramax drybulk vessels from an unaffiliated third party as well as two Capesize newbuildings from another unaffiliated third party.

The Baltic Bear was delivered to its charterer, Cargill International S.A., on May 16, 2010 to commence a spot market-related time charter for 11 to 13.5 months. The rate for the spot market-related time charter will be based on the average of the daily rates of the Baltic Capesize Index (BCI), an index published by The Baltic Exchange reflecting the average freight rate for four major Capesize time charter routes, as reflected in daily reports. Hire will be paid every 15 days in arrears net of a 5% brokerage commission, which includes 1.25% commission payable to Genco Shipping & Trading Limited. Baltic Trading will not be responsible for voyage expenses, including fuel.
