Seanergy Maritime : to Acquire an additional Modern Capesize Vessel and Sell the Oldest Vessel of the Fleet; to Acquire an additional Modern Capesize Vessel and

07/07/2021 | 11:38am EDT

Glyfada, Greece - Seanergy Maritime Holdings Corp. (the 'Company' or 'Seanergy') (NASDAQ: SHIP) reported today that it has entered into a purchase agreement with a major Japanese company to acquire a 2009-built Capesize vessel (the 'Vessel'). In addition, Seanergy has entered into a sales agreement with a far-eastern company for the sale of the 2001-built M/V Leadership, the oldest vessel in the Company's fleet.

The substitution of the M/V Leadership with the more modern Capesize vessel will significantly improve Seanergy's average fleet age. The total Capesize acquisition capex for the Company year to date adds up to approximately $160 million and are fully funded through the Company's cash reserves and recently concluded debt financings.

Acquisition of an additional Japanese, high quality Capesize vessel with prompt delivery

The new acquisition was built in 2009 at a reputable shipyard in Japan, has a cargo-carrying capacity of approximately 177,000 deadweight tons ('dwt') and will be renamed M/V Friendship. The Vessel is expected to be delivered imminently, within July 2021, subject to the satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions. The gross purchase price of $24.6 million is expected to be funded with cash on hand.

Sale of a Capesize vessel

Additionally, the Company has agreed to sell the 2001-built M/V Leadership for further trading to far-eastern buyers. The net sale price is approximately $12 million, and the vessel is expected to be delivered to its new owners within the third quarter of 2021.

Stamatis Tsantanis, the Company's Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, stated:

'I am pleased to announce another high quality, Japanese Capesize vessel acquisition with prompt delivery, during a strong market dynamic. The M/V Friendship will replace the M/V Leadership, our oldest vessel, improving the age and operating profile of the fleet. This is consistent with our fleet growth and renewal strategy that will ensure that our fleet remains competitive, efficient, and fully compliant with the upcoming environmental regulations.

The sale of the M/V Leadership was agreed at what we believe to be an attractive price, and has been timed optimally, ahead of the relevant survey capex requirements. The sale proceeds will further enhance the Company's strong cash reserves.

We remain committed to further accretive acquisitions in the Capesize segment, and we believe Seanergy is optimally positioned to take advantage of an unfolding super-cycle.'
