CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and are intended to be covered by the safe harbor provided for under these sections. These statements may include words such as “believe,” “estimate,” “project,” “intend,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” and similar expressions in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future operating or financial performance or other events. Forward-looking statements reflect management’s current expectations and observations with respect to future events and financial performance.
Where we express an expectation or belief as to future events or results, such expectation or belief is expressed in good faith and believed to have a reasonable basis. However, our forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors, which could cause actual results to differ materially from future results expressed, projected or implied by those forward-looking statements. The principal factors that affect our financial position, results of operations and cash flows include market freight rates, which fluctuate based on various economic and market conditions, periods of charter hire, vessel operating expenses and voyage costs, which are incurred primarily in U.S. dollars, depreciation expenses, which are a function of the purchase price of our vessels and our vessels’ estimated useful lives and scrap value, general and administrative expenses, and financing costs related to our indebtedness. The accuracy of the Company’s assumptions, expectations, beliefs and projections depends on events or conditions that change over time and are thus susceptible to change based on actual experience, new developments and known and unknown risks. The Company gives no assurance that the forward-looking statements will prove to be correct, does not undertake any duty to update them and disclaims any intent or obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors which could include the following: (i) volatility of freight rates driven by changes in demand for seaborne transportation of drybulk commodities and in supply of drybulk shipping capacity; (ii) changes in drybulk carrier capacity driven by levels of newbuilding orders, scrapping rates or fleet utilization; (iii) changes in rules and regulations applicable to the drybulk industry, including, without limitation, regulations of the International Maritime Organization and the European Union (the “EU”), requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency and other governmental and quasi-governmental agencies; (iv) changes in U.S., United Kingdom, United Nations and EU economic sanctions and trade embargo laws and regulations as well as equivalent economic sanctions laws of other relevant jurisdictions; (v) actions taken by regulatory authorities including, without limitation, the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”); (vi) changes in the typical seasonal variations in drybulk freight rates; (vii) changes in national and international economic and political conditions including, without limitation, the current conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the current economic and political environment in China and the environment in historically high-risk geographic areas such as the South China Sea, the Indian Ocean, the Gulf of Guinea and the Gulf of Aden; (viii) changes in the condition of the Company’s vessels or applicable maintenance or regulatory standards (which may affect, among other things, our anticipated drydocking costs); (ix) the duration and impact of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic and measures implemented by governments of various countries in response to the COVID-19 pandemic; (x) volatility of the cost of fuel; (xi) volatility of costs of labor and materials needed to operate our business due to inflation; (xii) any legal proceedings which we may be involved from time to time; and (xiii) other factors listed from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
We have based these statements on assumptions and analyses formed by applying our experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors we believe are appropriate in the circumstances. The Company’s future results may be impacted by adverse economic conditions, such as inflation, deflation, or lack of liquidity in the capital markets, that may negatively affect it or parties with whom it does business. Should one or more of the foregoing risks or uncertainties materialize in a way that negatively impacts the Company, or should the Company’s underlying assumptions prove incorrect, the Company’s actual results may vary materially from those anticipated in its forward-looking statements, and its business, financial condition and results of operations could be materially and adversely affected. Risks and uncertainties are further described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022, as filed within the SEC on March 10, 2023 (the “Annual Report”).

EAGLE BULK SHIPPING INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)
Note 1. Basis of Presentation and General Information
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Eagle Bulk Shipping Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company,” “we,” “our” or similar terms). All dollar amounts are stated in U.S. dollars and are presented in thousands, on a rounded basis, using actual amounts, except for per share amounts and unless otherwise noted. Minor differences in totals or percentages may exist due to rounding.
The Company is engaged in the ocean transportation of drybulk cargoes worldwide through the ownership, charter and operation of drybulk vessels. The Company’s fleet is comprised of Supramax and Ultramax drybulk carriers, and the Company operates its business in one business segment.
As of March 31, 2023, the Company owned and operated a modern fleet of 53 ocean-going vessels, including 25 Supramax and 28 Ultramax vessels with a combined carrying capacity of 3.21 million deadweight tons (“dwt”) and an average age of approximately 10.4 years. Additionally, the Company chartered-in five Ultramax vessels on a long-term basis, with remaining lease terms ranging from five months to 13 months. The Company also charters-in third-party vessels on a short-term basis.
For each of the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, the Company had no charterers which individually accounted for more than 10% of the Company’s gross charter revenue.
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”), and the rules and regulations of the SEC that apply to interim financial statements and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes normally included in consolidated financial statements prepared in conformity with U.S. GAAP. They should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s 2022 Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on March 10, 2023 (the “Annual Report”).
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited and include all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) that management considers necessary for a fair presentation of its condensed consolidated financial position and results of operations for the interim periods presented.
The results of operations for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the entire year.
The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates include fair values of long-lived assets (primarily vessels and operating lease right-of-use assets), impairment of long-lived assets (primarily vessels and operating lease right-of-use assets), stock-based compensation and financial instruments (primarily derivative instruments and Convertible Bond Debt (as defined herein)), residual values of vessels, useful lives of vessels and estimated losses on accounts receivable. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Note 2. Significant Accounting Policies and Pronouncements
The Company's significant accounting policies are described in Note 2, Significant Accounting Policies, in the notes to the consolidated financial statements included in the Annual Report. Included herein are certain updates to those policies.
Vessels and Vessel Improvements, At Cost
Vessels are stated at cost, which consists of the contract price, and other direct costs relating to acquiring and placing the vessels in service. Major vessel improvements, such as scrubbers and ballast water treatment systems (“BWTS”), are capitalized and depreciated over the remaining useful lives of the vessels. Depreciation is calculated on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the vessels based on the cost of the vessels reduced by the estimated scrap value of the vessels as discussed below. The Company estimates the useful life of the Company's vessels to be 25 years from the date of initial delivery from the shipyard to the original owner.
F-6


Effective January 1, 2023, we increased our estimated vessel scrap value from $300 per light weight ton (“lwt”) to $400 per lwt. This change was driven by increases in 15-year average scrap price trends sourced from a third-party data provider as well as similar increases by certain of our industry peer companies. The change in the estimated scrap value will result in a decrease in depreciation expense over the remaining life of our vessel assets. For the three months ended March 31, 2023, net income increased by $1.0 million, or $0.08 per basic and diluted share as a result of the change in this estimate. We expect depreciation to decrease by approximately $4.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2023 solely as a result of the prospective change in this estimate.
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
In March 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2020-04, Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting (“ASU 2020-04”). ASU 2020-04 provides optional expedients and exceptions for applying U.S. GAAP to contracts, hedging relationships and other transactions that reference LIBOR or another reference rate expected to be discontinued because of reference rate reform. ASU 2020-04 establishes (1) a general contract modification principle that entities can apply in other areas that may be affected by reference rate reform and (2) certain elective hedge accounting expedients. ASU 2020-04 is optional and effective for all entities as of March 12, 2020 and may be applied prospectively to contract modifications made on or before December 31, 2024 (as extended by ASU 2022-06, Deferral of the Sunset Date of Topic 848). In January 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-01, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848), Scope (“ASU 2021-01”), which clarifies certain provisions in Topic 848, if elected by an entity, to apply to derivative instruments that use interest rates for margining, discounting, or contract price alignment that is modified as a result of reference rate reform. The Company has not yet modified any contracts under the expedients or exceptions allowed by ASU 2020-04 or ASU 2021-01. If and when a contract modification within the scope of ASU 2020-04 occurs, it is not expected to have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.

Convertible Bond Debt
On July 29, 2019, the Company issued $114.1 million in aggregate principal amount of 5.0% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024 (the “Convertible Bond Debt”). After deducting debt discount of $1.6 million, the Company received net proceeds of approximately $112.5 million. Additionally, the Company incurred $1.0 million of debt issuance costs relating to this transaction. The Company used the proceeds to partially finance the purchase of six Ultramax vessels and for general corporate purposes, including working capital.
The Convertible Bond Debt bears interest at a rate of 5.0% per annum on the outstanding principal amount thereof, payable semi-annually in arrears on February 1 and August 1 of each year, which commenced on February 1, 2020. The Convertible Bond Debt may bear additional interest upon certain events, as set forth in the indenture governing the Convertible Bond Debt (the “Indenture”).
The Convertible Bond Debt will mature on August 1, 2024 (the “Maturity Date”), unless earlier repurchased, redeemed or converted pursuant to its terms. From time to time, the Company may, subject to market conditions and other factors and to the extent permitted by law, opportunistically repurchase the Convertible Bond Debt in the open market or through privately negotiated transactions. The Company may not otherwise redeem the Convertible Bond Debt prior to the Maturity Date.
Each holder has the right to convert any portion of the Convertible Bond Debt, provided such portion is of $1,000 or a multiple thereof, at any time prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding the Maturity Date. The conversion rate of the Convertible Bond Debt after adjusting for a 1-for-7 reverse stock split effected on September 15, 2020 (the “Reverse Stock Split”) and the Company's cash dividends declared through March 31, 2023 is 31.0670 shares of the Company's common stock per $1,000 principal amount of Convertible Bond Debt, which is equivalent to a conversion price of approximately $32.19 per share of common stock (subject to further adjustments for future dividends).
Upon conversion of the remaining bonds, the Company will pay or deliver, as the case may be, either cash, shares of its common stock or a combination of cash and shares of its common stock, at the Company’s election, to the holder (subject to shareholder approval requirements in accordance with the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange).
If the Company undergoes a fundamental change, as set forth in the Indenture, each holder may require the Company to repurchase all or part of their Convertible Bond Debt for cash in principal amounts of $1,000 or a multiple thereof. The fundamental change repurchase price will be equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Convertible Bond Debt to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest. If, however, the holders instead elect to convert their Convertible Bond Debt in connection with the fundamental change, the Company will be required to increase the conversion rate of the Convertible Bond Debt at a rate determined by a combination of the date the fundamental change occurs and the stock price of the Company's common stock on such date.
F-8


The Convertible Bond Debt is a general, unsecured senior obligation of the Company. It ranks: (i) senior in right of payment to any of the Company’s indebtedness that is expressly subordinated in right of payment to the Convertible Bond Debt; (ii) equal in right of payment to any of the Company’s unsecured indebtedness that is not so subordinated; (iii) effectively junior in right of payment to any of the Company’s secured indebtedness to the extent of the value of the assets securing such indebtedness; and (iv) structurally junior to all indebtedness and other liabilities of current or future subsidiaries of the Company.
The Indenture also provides for customary events of default. Generally, if an event of default occurs and is continuing, then the trustee or the holders of at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the Convertible Bond Debt then outstanding may declare 100% of the principal of and accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on all the Convertible Bond Debt then outstanding to be due and payable.
As of January 1, 2022, in accordance with the adoption of ASU 2020-06 under the modified retrospective approach, the Convertible Bond Debt no longer required bifurcation and separate accounting of its conversion feature that was previously separately accounted for as an equity component. As such, an adjustment to beginning retained earnings of $8.7 million was recorded within Accumulated deficit and a $20.7 million reduction to Additional paid-in capital was recorded to reverse the equity component and an offsetting $12.0 million was recorded within Convertible Bond Debt, net of debt discount and debt issuance costs as a reversal of the debt discount. See Note 2, Significant Accounting Policies, in the notes to the consolidated financial statements included in the Annual Report for additional discussion of the impact of ASU 2020-06 on the accounting for the Convertible Bond Debt and the condensed consolidated financial statements upon adoption on January 1, 2022.
Share Lending Agreement
In connection with the issuance of the Convertible Bond Debt, certain persons entered into an arrangement (the “Share Lending Agreement”) to borrow up to 511,840 shares of the Company’s common stock through share lending arrangements from Jefferies LLC (“JCS”), an initial purchaser of the Convertible Bond Debt. In connection with the foregoing, the Company entered into an agreement with an affiliate of JCS to lend up to 511,840 newly issued shares of the Company’s common stock. The number of shares loaned under the Share Lending Agreement have been adjusted for the Reverse Stock Split. As of March 31, 2023, the fair value of the 511,840 outstanding loaned shares was $23.3 million based on the closing price of the common stock on March 31, 2023. In connection with the Share Lending Agreement, JCS paid $0.03 million representing a nominal fee per borrowed share, equal to the par value of the Company’s common stock.
While the Share Lending Agreement does not require cash payment upon return of the shares, physical settlement is required (i.e., the loaned shares must be returned at the end of the arrangement). In view of this share return provision and other contractual undertakings of JCS in the Share Lending Agreement, which have the effect of substantially eliminating the economic dilution that otherwise would result from the issuance of borrowed shares, the loaned shares are not considered issued and outstanding for the purpose of computing and reporting the Company's basic and diluted weighted average shares or net income per share. If JCS were to file bankruptcy or commence similar administrative, liquidating or restructuring proceedings, the Company will have to consider 511,840 shares lent to JCS as issued and outstanding for the purposes of calculating net income per share.
Global Ultraco Debt Facility
On October 1, 2021, Eagle Bulk Ultraco LLC (“Eagle Ultraco”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, along with certain of its vessel-owning subsidiaries as guarantors, entered into a new senior secured credit facility (the “Global Ultraco Debt Facility”) with the lenders party thereto (the “Lenders”) Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank (“Credit Agricole”), Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (PUBL), Danish Ship Finance A/S, Nordea Bank ABP, Filial I Norge, DNB Markets Inc., Deutsche Bank AG, and ING Bank N.V., London Branch. The Global Ultraco Debt Facility provides for an aggregate principal amount of $400.0 million, which consists of (i) a term loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of $300.0 million (the “Term Facility”) and (ii) a revolving credit facility in an aggregate principal amount of $100.0 million (the “Revolving Facility”) to be used for refinancing the outstanding debt, including accrued interest and commitment fees under the Previous Debt Facilities (as defined in Note 7, Debt, in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report) and for general corporate purposes. The Company paid fees of $5.8 million to the Lenders in connection with the transaction.
The Global Ultraco Debt Facility has a maturity date of five years from the date of borrowing on the Term Facility, which is October 1, 2026. Outstanding borrowings bear interest at a rate of LIBOR plus 2.10% to 2.80% per annum, depending on certain metrics such as the Company's financial leverage ratio and meeting sustainability linked criteria. Repayments of $12.45 million are due quarterly and began on December 15, 2021, with a final balloon payment of all outstanding principal and accrued interest due upon maturity. The loan is repayable in whole or in part without premium or penalty prior to the maturity date subject to certain requirements stipulated in the Global Ultraco Debt Facility.
F-9


The Global Ultraco Debt Facility is secured by 49 of the Company's vessels. The Global Ultraco Debt Facility contains certain standard affirmative and negative covenants along with financial covenants. The financial covenants include: (i) minimum consolidated liquidity based on the greater of (a) $0.6 million per vessel owned directly or indirectly by the Company or (b) 7.5% of the Company's total debt; (ii) debt to capitalization ratio not greater than 0.60:1.00; and (iii) maintaining positive working capital. As of March 31, 2023, the Company was in compliance with all applicable financial covenants under the Global Ultraco Debt Facility.
Pursuant to the Global Ultraco Debt Facility, the Company borrowed $350.0 million and together with cash on hand repaid the outstanding debt, accrued interest and commitment fees under the Holdco Revolving Credit Facility and New Ultraco Debt Facility (each as defined in Note 7, Debt, in the notes to the consolidated financial statements included in the Annual Report). Concurrently, the Company issued a 10-day call notice to redeem the outstanding bonds under the Norwegian Bond Debt (as defined in Note 7, Debt, in the notes to the consolidated financial statements included in the Annual Report). Additionally, in October 2021, the Company entered into four interest rate swaps for the notional amount of $300.0 million of the Term Facility under the Global Ultraco Debt Facility at a fixed interest rate ranging between 0.83% and 1.06% to hedge the LIBOR-based floating interest rate (see Note 5, Derivative Instruments, for additional details).
As of March 31, 2023, there are no amounts outstanding under the Revolving Facility.
A summary of interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 is as follows:

Note 5. Derivative Instruments
The Company uses interest rate swaps to manage its exposure to interest rate risk on its debt. Generally, the Company enters into interest rate swaps with the objective of effectively converting debt from a floating-rate to a fixed-rate obligation. As of March 31, 2023, the Company’s outstanding interest rate swaps were designated as hedging instruments and qualified as cash flow hedges.
The Company uses forward freight agreements (“FFAs”) and bunker swaps to manage its exposure to changes in charter hire rates and market bunker prices, respectively. Generally, the Company enters into FFAs with the objective of effectively fixing charter hire rates for future charter transactions and the Company enters into bunker swaps with the objective of effectively fixing forecasted bunker transactions. The Company utilizes these derivative instruments to economically hedge these risks and does not designate them as hedging instruments.
For derivative instruments that are not designated as hedging instruments, changes in the fair value of the instruments and the gain or loss ultimately realized upon settlement of the derivative are reported in Realized and unrealized loss on derivative instruments, net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.
As of March 31, 2023, the Company has International Swaps and Derivatives Association agreements with five financial institutions which contain netting provisions. In addition to a master agreement with the Company supported by a primary parent guarantee on either side, the Company also has associated credit support agreements in place with the one counterparty which, among other things, provide the circumstances under which either party is required to post eligible collateral when the market value of transactions covered by these agreements exceeds specified thresholds.

Note 6. Fair Value Measurements
The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instrument:
Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash—Carrying values reported in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets approximate fair value due to their highly liquid and short-term nature.
Collateral on derivatives—Carrying values reported in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets approximate fair value due to their short-term nature.
Derivative assets and liabilities—The fair values of derivative assets and liabilities, which include interest rate swaps, FFAs and bunker swaps, are estimated using observable inputs for similar instruments as of the measurement date and standard valuation techniques to convert future amounts to a single present amount assuming that participants are motivated, but not compelled to transact.
Long-term Debt—The fair value of Convertible Bond Debt, which is traded in the over-the-counter market, is estimated based on quoted prices in markets that are not active on identical instruments. The carrying amount of the Term Facility under the Global Ultraco Debt Facility approximates its fair value, due to its variable interest rates.
The carrying values of other financial assets and liabilities (primarily accounts receivable, accounts payable and other accrued expenses) approximate their fair value due to their relative short-term nature.
The Company defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and provides disclosures about fair value measurements. The fair value hierarchy for disclosure of fair value measurements is as follows:
Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 – Quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical assets and liabilities in markets that are not active or other observable inputs.
Level 3 – Inputs that are unobservable.

Note 7. Commitments and Contingencies
Legal Proceedings
The Company is involved in legal proceedings and may become involved in other legal matters arising in the ordinary course of its business, principally personal injury and property casualty claims. Generally, we expect that such claims would be covered by insurance, subject to customary deductibles. The Company evaluates these legal matters on a case-by-case basis to make a determination as to the impact, if any, on its business, liquidity, results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.
Certain routine commercial claims have been asserted against the Company that relate to contractual disputes with certain of our charterers. The nature of these disputes involve disagreements over losses claimed by charterers during or as a result of the performance of certain voyage charters, including but not limited to delays in the performance of the charters and off-hire during the charters. The related legal proceedings are at various stages of resolution.
In March 2021, the U.S. government began investigating an allegation that one of the Company’s vessels may have improperly disposed of ballast water that entered the engine room bilges during a repair. The investigation of this alleged violation of environmental laws is ongoing, and although at this time we do not believe that this matter will have a material impact on the Company, our financial condition or results of operations, we cannot determine what penalties, if any, will be imposed. We have posted a surety bond as security for any potential fines, penalties or associated costs that may be incurred, and the Company is cooperating fully with the U.S. government in its investigation of this matter.
F-15


We have not been involved in any legal proceedings, other than as disclosed above, which we believe may have, or have had, a significant effect on our business, financial position, results of operations or liquidity, nor are we aware of any proceedings that are pending or threatened, other than as described above, which we believe may have a significant effect on our business, financial position and results of operations or liquidity. However, these proceedings, even if lacking merit, could result in the expenditure of significant financial and managerial resources.
In accordance with US GAAP, the Company accrues for contingent liabilities when it is probable that such a liability has been incurred and the amount of loss can be reasonably estimated. The Company evaluates its outstanding legal proceedings each quarter to assess its contingent liabilities and adjusts such liabilities, as appropriate, based on management’s best judgment after consultation with counsel. The Company incurred no costs associated with contingent liabilities for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and incurred $0.1 million in costs associated with contingent liabilities for the three months ended March 31, 2022. There is no assurance that the Company’s contingent liabilities will not need to be adjusted in the future.
Note 8. Leases
Time charter-out contracts
Time charter-out contracts are accounted for as operating leases. The Company records revenue generated from time charter-out contracts on a straight-line basis over the term of the respective time charter agreements as Revenues, net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. See Note 9, Revenue, for additional details.
A summary of lease payments expected to be received on fixed time charter-out contracts, net of commission, assuming no off-hire days, other than those related to scheduled interim or special surveys of the related vessel and excluding any voyage expenses associated with such contracts, as of March 31, 2023 is as follows:

Time charter-in contracts
Time charter-in contracts are accounted for as operating leases. The Company records operating lease cost for time charter-in contracts as Charter hire expenses in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Due to the volatility of freight rates, the Company generally concludes that it is not reasonably certain to exercise any options to extend the lease term at lease commencement.
As of March 31, 2023, the Company chartered-in, on a long-term basis, five Ultramax vessels. Details of modifications of or new long-term time charter-in contracts for the three months ended March 31, 2023 are as follows:
On October 17, 2018, the Company entered into an agreement to charter-in a 62,487 dwt, 2016-built Ultramax vessel for two years. The hire rate for the first year was $14,250 per day and the hire rate for the second year was $15,250. The Company took delivery of the vessel in December 2018. In December 2019, the Company entered into a lease addendum which replaced the original lease’s second year’s hire rate with a new hire rate of $11,600 per day from March 1, 2020 through July 31, 2021 and added an option to extend the lease term for an additional year at a hire rate of $12,600 per day from August 1, 2021 through July 31, 2022. In May 2021, the Company exercised its option for the additional year. In March 2022, the Company entered into a lease addendum that extended the lease term at a hire rate of $23,888 per day from August 1, 2022 through June 1, 2023 and added an option to extend the lease term at a hire rate of $25,888 per day from June 2, 2023 through July 1, 2024. In March 2023, the Company entered into a lease addendum that replaced the hire rate from June 1, 2023 to May 1, 2024 from $25,888 per day to $17,500 per day and added an option to extend the lease term at a hire rate of $19,500 per day from May 1, 2024 to April 1, 2025. The lease is expected to terminate in April 2025.
