Planned listing on the Warsaw Stock Exchange

Kostiantyn Molodkovets, CEO of KDM Shipping Ltd, commented: We are pleased with the interest shown by investors during the public offering, despite the discouraging situation on the capital markets. Taking the company public is an element of the implementation of our long-term growth strategy, and the listing on the Warsaw Stock Exchange will be the beginning of our long-term relationship with the Polish capital market, based on transparency, which we intend to maintain. Although we will raise less proceeds than we anticipated, they will enable us to begin the process of expanding our fleet in order to take advantage of the excellent growth prospects of the river-sea dry bulk freight sector in the Black, Azov and Mediterranean sea region in which we operate. We are happy that the investors who appreciate our unique business model and strong fundamentals will be able to participate in the further growth of the company.
