Euroseas Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESEA) has decided to terminate the existing charters for its container vessels, M/V Rena P and M/V Emmanuel P, through a mutual agreement. This announcement was made on July 25, 2023.
Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of Euroseas commented:
“We are pleased to announce we have reached a mutual agreement with our existing charterer to terminate the charters of our two intermediate containerships built in 2007 and 2005 respectively, while having successfully replaced these charters at $21,000 per day, following the agreed termination of their current charters in August 2023.
By maintaining a very healthy employment coverage of about 95% for the remainder of 2023 and approximately 66% for 2024 at very high levels, we can safely continue paying our quarterly dividend, continue implementing our buyback program and still have significant funds to invest in other opportunities that will arise.”
