Andreas Røde, CEO of Ocean Yield, said in a comment:

“The fourth quarter was another active quarter for Ocean Yield, where we acquired three Suezmax vessels and took delivery of one container vessel from the yard. Ocean Yield continues to deliver strong results, with a net profit for the year of USD 92.5 million and an EBITDA charter backlog of USD 4.2 billion as of year-end. The Company is selectively evaluating new investments in vessels with long-term charters, while always taking the cyclicality of the underlying shipping segments into account.“
