Euroseas Ltd. was formed on May 5, 2005 under the laws of the Republic of the Marshall Islands to consolidate the ship owning interests of the Pittas family of Athens, Greece, which has been in the shipping business over the past 140 years. Euroseas trades on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the ticker ESEA. Euroseas operates in the container shipping market. Euroseas’ operations are managed by Eurobulk Ltd., an ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certified affiliated ship management company, which is responsible for the day-to-day commercial and technical management and operations of the vessels. Euroseas employs its vessels on spot and period charters and through pool arrangements.

Euroseas signed a two-year charter contract for the M/V Leonidas Z at a rate of $20,000/day. The rate will commence upon delivery which is expected at the end of April or beginning of May. The rate is above the rate we had assumed in our model although the increased impact on revenues and earnings is minimal given the size of the Euroseas’ fleet.

We are initiating 2025 quarterly and annual estimate. Revenues and earnings will be challenged by the roll off of several attractive charters and rising interest expenses. However, results will be boosted by the addition of six ships in 2024 including four in the 2024-2Q and two in 2024-4Q. We believe the net result will mean 2025 revenues will be similar to 2024 and earnings will be modestly below 2024.
