About Castor Maritime Inc.

Castor Maritime is a shipping company specializing in the provision of maritime transport services with a wide range of dry bulk cargo that they carry on global shipping routes. It is a young and ambitious company that was founded in 2017 and acquired its first ship in September. The fleet now consists of three bulk carriers. Castor’s primary goal is to expand the fleet by taking over other bulk carriers with the profits they make.

The vision behind the offer

The net proceeds of the offering will be used for further investments, working capital, fleet expansion, other assets, for other general corporate asset purposes or a combination thereof. The Company incurred a net loss of $259,868 earlier this year for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The loss in that period is $0.07 per share. Due to the expansion of the fleet, significant investments have been made which have also resulted in a 200% increase in time charter revenues. Castor indicates that the COVID-19 has had a major impact on the revenues, because they have been delayed a.o. the dry dock repair of one of the ships. The company is convinced that now that COVID-19 is declining in various parts of the world and the economy is picking up again, the figures speak again in favour of shipping.

The share at this moment (June, 25)

There is much talk and speculation about the share on social media channels. The share previously ended at $0.4265 and currently stands at $0.4558 and has a value increase of +6.87%. The speculation is that tomorrow the share can increase in the form of a big wave.
