Ian Webber, Chief Executive Officer of Global Ship Lease, commented, “I am pleased to announce the establishment of this growth credit facility, which significantly increases our ability to grow at a time when feeder containerships remain at a substantial discount to both long-term average values and newbuild price parity. The fundamentals for mid-sized and smaller containerships remain compelling, with a limited orderbook and continued demand growth. With this enhanced growth capacity, Global Ship Lease is in an excellent position to create shareholder value amid these supportive dynamics.”

Andreas Povlsen, Chief Executive Officer of Breakwater Capital, said: “As a ship finance platform with a long-term approach, we seek to work with strong management teams with a clear and sustainable growth strategy. In this context, we are pleased to provide GSL with a tailored capital solution within a specific sub-sector where we share a common view around encouraging forward fundamentals.”
