Songa Bulk Collects USD 75 Mn for Additional Ships

Norwegian shipowner Songa Bulk ASA has completed the issuance of a USD 75 million senior secured bond to finance acquisition of additional dry bulk vessels.

The company said that the bond issue, which has a total borrowing limit of USD 150 million, was oversubscribed and “received strong demand from high quality investors.”
