Monaco-based Scorpio Bulkers Inc. announced on Monday, December 4, that the company has received a commitment from a leading European financial institution for a loan facility of up to €32.6 million ($38.7 million).

The loan facility will have a final maturity of five years from the signing date and bears interest at LIBOR plus a margin of 2.85 percent per annum.
