        Easterly资产管理公司旗下海事投资公司Maritime Logistics Equity Partners (简称MLEP)即将安排其第二批化学品运输油轮下水出航。
 
        第一批船只中,MLEP公司收购了四艘船只,分别为“Easterly Beech Galaxy”号、“Easterly Lime Galaxy”号、“Easterly AS Omaria”号和“Easterly AS Olivia”号。这些船建造于2007年和2008年,都是由日本制造的尺寸相似的J19型不锈钢化学品运输油轮。
 
        现在,第二批船只中,MLEP公司打算收购所有尺寸的化学品运输油轮,其中包括尺寸较大的不锈钢涂层船,例如中程灵便型油轮。
 
        该公司表示,Easterly公司预计筹集1.5亿至2.5亿美元的股权,并将其目标定为再收购15-20艘船只。
 
        Easterly资产管理公司管理负责人和MLEP公司首席执行官Darrell Crate说:“由于我们第一批船舶航行顺利,目前为止我们已经收购了四艘不锈钢油轮,能为投资者推出第二批船舶下水,我们为此感到非常激动。考虑到船舶的有限供应和对其需求量的不断增长,未来航运建设的低额订单量和化学品贸易通道的扩大这些情况,投资二手化学品运输油轮的机会仍然令人瞩目。”
 
        “我们现在知道了,船只部署混乱和后续投资机会比我们最初想象的要大,而且不仅仅是在不锈钢这个子行业,其他更广范围中其他尺寸的化学品运输油轮上也是如此。”
 
        据称,为了应对行业趋势,如用于运输散装液体的化学品油轮建造量减少,MLEP公司认准了在经济繁荣时期建造仍有多年生产寿命的油轮,并将其出租。
 
        如同第一期船舶,MLEP公司将再次把第二期收购的所有船舶投入WOMAR公司的油轮船队使用。
 
        WOMAR公司的首席执行官Hans Van der Zijde说到:“我们很欢迎与MLEP公司继续合作的机会,以建立一段长期商业资产管理关系"。

MLEP launches second chemical tanker tranche
 
Easterly Asset Management’s maritime investment company Maritime Logistics Equity Partners (MLEP) is launching its second chemical tanker tranche.
 
In the first tranche, MLEP acquired four ships Easterly Beech Galaxy, Easterly Lime Galaxy, Easterly AS Omaria, and Easterly AS Olivia. The ships, constructed in 2007 and 2008, are similarly sized Japanese built J19 stainless steel chemical tankers.
 
Now, in its second tranche, MLEP intends to acquire all sizes of chemical tankers, including stainless and coated vessels of larger sizes such as medium-range and handysize tankers.
 
Easterly expects to raise between $150 and $250 million of equity and will target acquiring 15-20 more ships, the company informed.
 
“Due to the success of our first tranche, in which we have acquired four stainless steel tankers to date, we are excited to launch our second tranche for investors. There continues to be compelling opportunity to invest in pre-owned chemical tankers, given the limited supply and growing demand for the vessels, a low future order book for shipping construction and the expansion of chemical trade lanes”, said Darrell Crate, managing principal of Easterly Asset Management and MLEP’s CEO.
 
“We now know that the dislocation and subsequent investment opportunity is greater than we first thought, and not just in the stainless steel sub-sector, but also more broadly in other sized chemical tankers as well”.
 
Said to respond to the industry trends such as a decline in the building of chemical tankers intended for the transport of bulk liquids, MLEP targets tankers built during the boom but with years of productive life remaining and puts them out for hire.
 
Just like in the first tranche, MLEP will again place all of its vessels acquired in the second tranche into WOMAR’s Tanker Pools.
 
WOMAR’s CEO, Hans Van der Zijde, commented: “We welcome the opportunity to continue to work with MLEP and to build a long-lasting commercial asset management relationship”.
