Navig8 Seals Financing for Two More Newbuilds

Navig8 Product Tankers Inc has entered into an amended loan facility for USD 128.5 million with Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank (CACIB) and BNP Paribas to provide additional financing for LR1 74,000 DWT product tankers being built at STX Offshore & Shipbuilding Co. Ltd.

The initial USD 64.3 million loan facility with CACIB, which was announced in November 2015, covered the first two newbuilding contracts at STX. Under the amended loan facility, the third and fourth newbuilding contracts at STX have been financed. The debt financing will cover approximately 65% of the contract price of each of these four vessels.

“We are pleased to report that we have completed further steps to finance our newbuilding program,” said Nicolas Busch, Chief Executive Officer of Navig8 Product Tankers.

“Thus far, we have closed senior debt and sale and leaseback financings for 19 vessels, including the vessels that will be financed under the amended facility with Credit Agricole and BNP Paribas. We are also excited to continue to take delivery of our vessels on schedule and that the Navig8 Excelsior and Navig8 Stability have delivered into a strong product tanker market.”

The company took delivery of two newbuilding product tankers, the Navig8 Excelsior and the Navig8 Stability, thus far and anticipates that its entire newbuilding fleet will be delivered by the end of 2016.
