• The Company paid an amount of approximately $19.3 million or $0.60 per share in November 2023 as a dividend classified for accounting purposes as a return of paid-in capital.
• On January 26, 2024, we entered into amendments to the existing sale and leaseback agreements for the VLCC vessels Nissos Kea and Nissos Nikouria (the “Existing Leases Amendments”) with CMB Financial Leasing. The Existing Leases Amendments, effective from the first quarter of 2024, provide for a reduction of the pricing of the variable amount of charterhire payable thereunder to 200 basis points over the applicable Term SOFR on both vessels, extend maturities to December 2030 for the Nissos Kea and March 2031 for the Nissos Nikouria, and eliminate the previously stipulated early prepayment fees in the case of exercise of the purchase options by the Company after the first year.
• On January 29, 2024, we entered into a new sale and leaseback agreement of approximately $73.5 million for the VLCC vessel Nissos Anafi (the “Anafi Lease”) with CMB Financial Leasing. The agreement provides for a bareboat charter with the charterhire being paid on a quarterly basis, is priced at 190 basis points over the applicable Term SOFR and matures in seven years. The Anafi Lease includes purchase options for the Company after the first year and throughout the tenor of the lease and is guaranteed by the Company.
• On January 31, 2024, we entered into a new $34.7 million senior secured credit facility with a syndicate led by Kexim Asia Limited to finance the option to purchase back, in February 2024, the Suezmax vessel Milos from its current sale and lease back financier. The facility is repaid quarterly, matures in six years, is priced at 175 basis points over the applicable Term SOFR, is secured by the Milos, and is guaranteed by the Company.
*The Company uses certain financial information calculated on a basis other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, including TCE, Adjusted EBITA, Adjusted profit, Adjusted earnings per share, and opex. For a reconciliation of these non-IFRS measures please refer to the end of the attached report.
