Contract coverage in terms of operating days is now 95% for 2022, 77% for 2023, and 57% for 2024.
The company also agreed to sell two 20-year-old 6,422 TEU vessels for $130 million and are expected to be delivered to their buyer in November 2022.
"We are very pleased to announce the continued improvement of our contracted backlog with multi-year charters for 11 of our vessels and the profitable sale of two older vessels. The combined result is up to $1 billion of contracted revenue accretion and sales proceeds. These transactions significantly improve our liquidity and cash flow visibility for the next several years and further strengthen our balance sheet," said CEO John Coustas.
