ING bankrolls Scorpio Bulkers

Drybulk operator Scorpio Bulkers has received a commitment for a loan facility of up to $30 million from ING Bank to refinance two Kamsarmax bulk carriers (SBI Zumba and SBI Parapara).

The loan facility has a final maturity of five years from drawdown date and bears interest at Libor plus 2.20%.

This loan facility increases the company’s liquidity by about $8.0 million after repayment of the vessels’ existing debt.
