GLYFADA, Greece, Oct. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Globus Maritime Limited (the “Company” or "Globus") (NASDAQ: GLBS), a dry bulk shipping company, announced today that it has entered into, through a separate wholly owned subsidiary, an agreement with an unaffiliated third party to purchase a 2015-built Kamsarmax vessel built by the Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding shipyard, for $18.4 million.

The vessel is expected to be delivered to Globus during the fourth quarter of 2020.

“We are very pleased to announce the agreement to purchase a modern vessel that will increase our fleet carrying capacity, lower the average age of the fleet and expand the company in a larger asset class.

We believe that this investment is a good asset in a market with promising prospects with a long operating life. We are thrilled to welcome the vessel in our fleet and operations.

We continue to view expansion opportunities and as the market moves towards healthier fundamentals we are carefully and continuously searching for vessels that fit our profile and operational needs.”
