Shipping IPOs

Capital markets and shipping IPOs are once again a hot topic in shipping; high prospects and expectations from a new crop of shipping companies, quite a few now sponsored by institutional investors. Hopefully, this new round of shipping IPOs will manage to bring to the public markets a more distinguished management style than the shipping IPOs of the last decade.

Interesting article in the Tanker Operator magazine, June 2014 issue.

‘Fairplay’ Profiles Bail M Karatzas and Karatzas Marine Advisors & Co.

The January 8th, 2015 issue of the well-respected international shipping weekly publication ‘Fairplay’ (published since 1883) has honored in its weekly ‘Profile’ pages Basil M. Karatzas, CEO of Karatzas Marine Advisors & Co., and Managing Partner of Karatzas Maritime Capital Management. Karatzas Marine Advisors & Co., based in Manhattan, has been acting as shipbroker and shipping finance advisor to shipowners, institutional investors, banks and leasing companies worldwide. Karatzas Maritime Capital Management has been investing along its clients in transactions in the shipping and maritime sectors.

It has been a tremendous horor for the firm and its principals to be recognized so prominently in such well established trade publication and reflects on the progress, success and reputation the firm and its principals have been enjoying since the inception of the firm in 2011. The firm is extremely thankful and appreciative of the trust and support its clients have placed in its principals and business practices, and looking forward to successfully grow along its clients; ‘by doing always your best and placing clients’ interests first, success will come and that soon,’ as Basil Karatzas delights to remind in the office.
