As part of the transaction, the company will sell a 2015 Japanese built kamsarmax dry bulk vessel, SBI Samba, for a consideration of US$21.4 million and then lease it back from the buyer through a five-year bareboat charter agreement at a rate of US$6850 per day.

This transaction increases the company’s liquidity by approximately US$6.9 million after repayment of the vessel’s existing loan.
