Speaking in a Capital Link webinar on the Competitive Advantages of Shipping Small Caps, Tsantanis said the figure is a result of an internal study conducted by the company into how much dry bulk listed companies have lost over the last five years.

As disclosed, the calculations were made based on net losses available in the companies’ balance sheets.

Individual data shows that the list was topped by Genco with USD 1.7 bn lost over the period, followed by Eagle with almost USD 1.1 bn lost, with other companies from the list losing somewhat below the USD 1 bn mark.

On the other hand, according to Tsamatis, unlike its counterparts, Seanergy Maritime managed to earn USD 55 million over the past five years.

“I generally agree that the size is important, but it is also a matter how big a company can get. Bigger companies tend to add extra management layers creating disarrays with the company management and operation of the fleet,” he said.

“We don’t see the size being a problem in achieving the maximum revenue, or achieving the same terms in raising capital. It is not a matter of size, but the quality of the balance sheet and the type of focus you have.”

The company operates a fleet of eleven dry bulk carriers, consisting of nine Capesizes and two Supramaxes. However, by the end of the year, Tsantanis expect the company to sell its Supramaxes, thus becoming a solely Capesize owner as he believes the sector offers the best returns.

Product DescriptionOUCO-Belt-Mounted-Port-Hopper-Manufacture.jpg

OUCO Conveyor design and manufacture a wide range of hopper / feeder units to customers specific requirements and to suit required capacities and feed arrangements.
Discharge from the Eco-Hopper may be direct to a belt conveyor for a fixed installation. In this case the bulk material is reclaimed by a gravity discharge unit which feeds the material onto the conveyor at the required outputrate.

Unloading with traveling hoppers has the advantage of being a very flexible solution. The throughput of the terminal can be increased by just adding one or more hoppers, provided the collecting belt conveyor and the subsequent handling equipment are designed for future capacity increase with larger vessels.
