Seanergy Maritime Holdings Corp. (“Seanergy” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: SHIP) announced today that it has entered into time charter contracts (“T/C”) for two additional Capesize vessels with Anglo American, a leading global mining corporation, and Pacbulk Shipping, a major Asian drybulk operator. Furthermore, another Capesize vessel of the Company is extending its current time charter employment.

M/V Fellowship

The M/V Fellowship has been fixed on a T/C with Anglo American, a leading global mining company. The T/C is expected to commence in the beginning of the second quarter of 2021 and will have a term of minimum 12 to maximum 15 months. The daily hire of the T/C will be based on the 5 T/C routes of the Baltic Capesize Index (“BCI”), while the Company has also the option to convert the daily hire from index-linked to fixed for a minimum period of three months to a maximum of 12 months based on the prevailing Capesize Freight Futures Agreements (“FFA”) curve.

M/V Geniuship

The M/V Geniuship has been fixed on a T/C with Pacbulk Shipping, a major Asian dry bulk operator. The T/C is expected to commence in the beginning of the second quarter of 2021 and will have a term of approximately 11 to 14 months from the delivery date. The daily hire will be based on the 5 T/C routes of the BCI, while the Company has the option to convert the daily hire from index-linked to fixed for a minimum period of three months to a maximum of 12 months based on the prevailing Capesize FFA curve.

M/V Gloriuship

The same Asian dry bulk operator, Pacbulk Shipping, has agreed to extend for the second time the T/C of the M/V Gloriuship for a period commencing from the expiration of the current T/C in June 2021 until maximum April 2022. The daily hire will be based on the 5 T/C routes of the BCI, while the Company has the option to convert the daily hire from index-linked to fixed based on the prevailing Capesize FFA curve.

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

“We are pleased to further expand our relationship with leading global charterers through two additional Capesize vessels entering into long period employment. The relationships we have established with our charterers attest to the operational and commercial quality of our fleet.

Following the delivery of the M/V Fellowship and the M/V Geniuship to their subject charterers, 82% percent of our fleet will be employed under index-linked time-charters allowing Seanergy to be highly correlated with the performance of the Capesize index.

Based on the significantly improved market conditions, the strong fundamentals, and the worldwide positive sentiment, we believe that Seanergy, being the only pure-play Capesize owner listed in the US equity markets, is best positioned to fully benefit from the rising trend in the Capesize market.”
