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. The terms and conditions will be similar to those set out in the company’s existing credit facilities. The loan facility is subject to customary conditions precedent and the execution of definitive documentation.
Scorpio Bulkers also announced that it has agreed to modify a previously announced contract with an unaffiliated third party to acquire a 2015 Chinese built Ultramax dry bulk vessel.
Scorpio Bulkers Inc. is a provider of marine transportation of dry bulk commodities. After the completion of its recent acquisitions of nine Ultramax vessels, the company will own or finance lease 55 vessels, consisting of 18 Kamsarmax vessels and 37 Ultramax vessels.
The company also time charters-in one Ultramax vessel and one dry bulk Kamsarmax vessel is expected to be delivered to the company in the second quarter of 2018 from a shipyard in China. Upon final delivery of all the vessels the owned fleet is expected to have a total carrying capacity of approximately 3.9 million deadweight tonnes.

Sonia Irvine, the driver behind Amber Lounge, Formula One’s biggest weekend bash, confirmed that, as of yesterday, Amber Summer is a go…
For the first time in its 14-year history, Monaco's Grand Prix ultimate post-race party known as Amber Lounge will morph into 'Amber Summer' the week following race weekend. “I’ve been wanting to do this for a few years,” Sonia tells Monaco Life, “and all the pieces fell into place, so it was time. I’m very excited to be doing something new.” Open daily from 17:00, Amber Summer will take over 350 square metres at the Meridian Beach Plaza serving an Asian-style night menu, a late night menu and, for revellers, breakfast from 05:00 to 07:00. Unlike Amber Lounge and it’s wild nightlife, Amber Summer will be a place to relax, as Sonia explains: “You can come in your beachwear and have a casual drink, or bite to eat before heading out at midnight to the clubs, like Jimmyz, and then come back to Amber Summer for breakfast.”
