Eagle Bulk secures increase to loan facility

US dry bulk vessel operator Eagle Bulk has secured a $34.3m incremental term loan under its existing five-year senior secured term loan facility maturing in 2024, from existing lenders ABN AMRO, Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank (Credit Agricole), Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (SEB), DNB Bank ASA (DNB), Danish Ship Finance, and Nordea.

The incremental amount of the facility is secured by the three ultramaxes the company recently acquired – Copenhagen Eagle, Dublin Eagle, and Sydney Eagle.

The proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, including capital expenditures relating to the installation of scrubbers.

Eagle Bulk owns a fleet of 47 supramax and ultramax dry bulk vessels.
