Recent performance

Safe Bulkers posted second-quarter profits on the back of increased charter rates.

The company reported net income of $10.1m compared with a $4.8m loss in the same period last year.

Its earnings per share were $0.04, compared with a loss of $0.13 per share the previous year, missing analysts’ expectations by $0.03 per share mainly because of increased drydocking costs.

The company’s TCE reached $12,605 per vessel per day, compared with $9,698 a year ago. Company president Loukas Barmparis said that the increase was due to new charters replacing older expiring charters at higher rates.
