THE VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE


Full report can be viewed on the following link: www.compassmar.com/reports.cfm Tanker sale and purchase activity has been picking up, especially in the MR sector where several MR resales were reported sold this week at much higher price levels than recent transactions. Are these "one-offs" from buyers who are willing to pay up for the few available prompt delivery ECO designed vessels or "new benchmarks"? Navios Maritime Acquisition and Scorpio Tankers are using proceeds from recent equity raisings to expand their ECO product tanker fleets through new orders and by buying resales from third parties. Navios purchased the M/T "IVORY POINT" / "INDIGO POINT" (50,922 DWT/Built 2007 and 2008 at STX Shipbuilding in Korea) for about $24 mill. and $22.4 mill. respectively and placed orders for 2 option 2 ECO Mr2 newbuildings in Korea for $31.5 mill. each basis delivery third/fourth quarter 2014. In addition they purchased a resale ECO MR tanker (50,400 DWT/Delivery 3rd quarter 2013 from STX Jinhae Shipyard in Korea) for about $34.5 mill. Scorpio Tankers exercised two newbuilding options for two 37,000 DWT ice class Handysize product tankers at $31.5 mill. each basis delivery in the 3rd quarter of 2014 and picked up 4 x 50,000 DWT ECO MR tanker resales (via novation contracts) at $36.5 mill. each which are scheduled for delivery from Hyundai Mipo in 2nd and 3rd quarter of 2013. Ship owning companies continue to restructure and this week STX Pan Ocean put four ships for sale in a bid to raise cash after their tender to sell a 36% shareholding of associated companies STX Group and STX Offshore failed. The four ships in question are the M/V "STX DALIAN" / "STX QINGDAO" (23,579 DWT/Built 2010 and 2009 at Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard in China - 1,740 TEU's - Cranes 2/45 tons) and two kamsarmax newbuildings (83,000 DWT/Delivery 5/2013 and 10/2013 from STX Dalian Shipbuilding in China). The Japanese shipping community is working together to help major shipowner Daiichi Chuo Kisen Kaisha (Daiichi) get out of deep financial trouble after they posted a first quarter deficit of $228 mill. Mitsui OSK Lines (MOSK) is a major shareholder and they purchased about 95% of the second YEN 15 bill. (about $160 mill.) new preferred "A Class" share issue (same amount as the February 2013 issue) and Japanese owners Doun Shipping Group and Nissen Kaiun Group also participated. Have a great weekend!
