Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On December 18, 2018, Captain Robert Hughes was appointed by Genco Shipping & Trading Limited (the "Company'), as the Company's Chief Operations Officer, effective January 22, 2019. The Company announced Captain Hughes' employment by press release on December 18, 2018.

Captain Hughes, age 43, has over 20 years of operations and leadership experience in the drybulk and broader shipping industry. Most recently, Captain Hughes has been employed by Cargill Ocean Transportation, serving as Americas Operations and Global Technical Manager since November 2013. Prior to that, he served as Deputy Commercial Operations Manager at OSG Ship Management from 2008 to 2012 and held senior positions at Stolt-Neilsen and the U.S. Merchant Marines. Since 1997, Captain Hughes has also held a variety of active and reservist U.S. naval positions in Asia, East Africa, Europe and the Middle East, currently serving as a Commanding Officer at Military Sealift Command in the U.S. Navy Reserve. Captain Hughes earned a Masters in Strategic Studies from the United States Army War College, an M.B.A. from Molloy College, a diploma from the Air Force Command & Staff College and a B.A. from the United States Merchant Marine Academy.

In connection with his employment, Captain Hughes will be paid a base salary of $240,000 per year, have a target cash bonus of 65% of his salary, and be eligible for grants under the 2015 Equity Incentive Plan and to participate in other compensation plans for executive officers.

There are no arrangements or understandings between Captain Hughes and any other person pursuant to which he was selected as Chief Operations Officer. There are no family relationships between Captain Hughes and any director or executive officer of the Company, and he has not been a party to any transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Securities and Exchange Commission Regulation S-K.

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

The Company today disclosed that it has contracted to sell three of its Panamax vessels, the Genco Beauty, the Genco Knight, and the Genco Vigour for an aggregate price of $19.3 million. These vessels are the last of the 1990s-built vessels that the Company previously determined to dispose of. The Company delivered the Genco Beauty to its purchaser on December 17, 2018. The Company expects to deliver the Genco Knight to its purchaser by December 31, 2018 and the Genco Vigour to its purchaser by January 31, 2019. In addition, pursuant to the Company's previously announced sale agreements, the Company delivered the Genco Explorer on November 13, 2018 and the Genco Muse on December 5, 2015 to their respective purchasers. After the completion of these sales, the Company expects the average age of its fleet to be reduced by nearly two years to 8.9 years. This compares to an average age of 10.7 years based on a fleet of 60 vessels prior to any sale and purchase activity that occurred in 2018.
