12 Φεβρουαρίου 2018.

economou41DryShips Inc., a diversified owner of ocean going cargo vessels, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Gas Ships Limited Inc., (“Gas Ships Limited”) has filed a registration statement on Form F-1 with the U.S. Securities & exchange commission. The filing relates to the company’s spin off of its gas carrier business from the Company. In the spin-off, DryShips will distribute to holders of its common stock 49% of the issued and outstanding shares of Gas Ships Limited’s common stock. Following the spin-off, Gas Ships Limited will be a publicly-traded company, and DryShips will retain a 51% ownership interest in Gas Ships Limited.

Mr. George Economou, the company’s chairman and chief executive officer, commented “The filing of the Form F-1 Registration Statement is an important step in the process of establishing Gas Ships Limited as a new, stand-alone company with its own strategic focus, independence and priorities. We believe that this business is well-positioned for success as a separate company.”

The initial Form F-1 Registration Statement may be subsequently amended to provide further information regarding Gas Ships Limited and the spin-off prior to its completion.

The spin-off is subject to certain conditions, including the effectiveness of Gas Ships Limited’s Form F-1 registration statement and final approval and declaration of the distribution by DryShips’ Board of Directors. DryShips may, at any time until the closing of the spin-off, decide to abandon, modify or change the terms of the spin-off.
