On May 24th Star Bulk Carriers reported its first quarter of 2022 financial results. Star Bulk’s CEO, Petros Pappas commented: “Star Bulk reported strong results for the first quarter of 2022, with Net Income of $170.4 million, EBITDA of $220.7 million and TCE Revenues of $304.9 million. TCE for the quarter was $27,405 / day per vessel, an increase of 77% YoY. This result marks our strongest daily TCE performance for the first quarter of a year, when rates are traditionally weaker, since 2009. Looking to the next quarter, we have covered 74.3% of our available days for Q2 at a TCE of $29,759 / day per vessel.
“We continue to return profits to our shareholders, with the Board of Directors approving a dividend of $1.65 per share as per the Company’s existing dividend policy. Over the last four quarters, we have distributed a dividend of $5.60 per share to our shareholders.
“Dry bulk market prospects are favorable, notwithstanding the challenging global economic conditions. Main driver remains the limited supply growth with the historically low vessel orderbook and the upcoming environmental regulations further suppressing orders and speeds. Demand is still robust with continued strong commodity flows over longer distances due to infrastructure investments and trade dislocations.”
