    Wow that ought to make shareholders happy... my only question is if you needed the money what did you do so that you no longer need the money?

    The money was for growth, not operations, so they will not commission additional ships for construction.

    This shareholder is happy and not happy. The not happy: It was going to use the funds to grow the company by buying cheap brand new ships to lease after it had clients sign long term leases (6-12 years). That is its business model and has done very well with it. Either they will have to find funding through some other way or not expand its business for the time being.


    Happy part: Added 420 shares yesterday below $20 for a yeild of 6.25%.

    I don't think they did "need" the money.
