Shipping rates improved at the end of the quarter. At the end of the third quarter, management indicated that it had locked in 60% of estimated operating days at $21,640/day and that at current spot prices, the average TCE rate for the quarter would be $19,480/day. With spot prices rising, the average TCE rate will most likely be closer to $23,000/day. The addition of a new vessel and limited drydocking will mean increased operating days. Raising the TCE rate in our models increase revenues by approximately $4 million.

Shipping rates have fallen in the 2024-1Q due to seasonal factors such as the Chinese New Year and the rain season in Brazil but remain above historical 1Q levels. We have lowered our revenue projection to reflect lower rates and decreased fees from related parties (Seanergy receives revenues for third party ship management which included abnormal gains in 2023-3Q).
