The first quarter is characterized by low activity, vessels in storage and low utilization of vessels in the spot market. During the quarter, the company obtained contracts that provide increased earnings in the next two quarters.
An agreement with the lenders entered into in 2020 clarifies the company’s obligations to the lenders for the period until 2024. The agreement does not prevent the company’s fleet from being reduced as a result of the sale of vessels with lower revenues than operating costs for the individual vessel.
