GLBS Gains Big On Earnings

During the quarter, this figure came in at $5,079, compared to $2,211 in the same quarter last year. Here are a few key comments offered by GLBS management…
“In Q12017, we took further steps to improve our balance sheet in order to position us better for the future and shield us from any near term market volatility. After working closely with our banks, we have managed to get some payment and waiver relaxations for 2017 and part of 2018.
The market started to soften recently but the signals we get for the market encourage us to remain cautiously optimistic. The fleet operated well in Q1 with no major technical or operational challenges.”
