ATHENS, Greece, July 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capital Product Partners L.P. (CPLP) , an international owner of ocean-going vessels, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, CPLP Shipping Holdings PLC, has successfully priced its previously announced offering of ?100 million of unsecured bonds (the ?Bonds?) in Greece. The Bonds will be guaranteed by CPLP. The Bonds will mature in 2029 and will have a coupon of 4.40%, payable semi-annually. The offering is subject to customary closing conditions, and settlement is expected to occur on July 26, 2022. The trading of the Bonds on the Athens Exchange is expected to commence on July 27, 2022.

The proceeds of the Bonds will be used to either repay debt or/and to finance the acquisition of new vessels and the remainder of such proceeds, if any, will be used to finance working capital needs. CPLP estimates the expenses of the offering to be approximately ?3.4?million.

Mr. Jerry Kalogiratos, Chief Executive Officer of our General Partner, commented:

?We are pleased to announce the closing of our second bond offering at the Athens Exchange. The successful issue of this ?100.0 million Bond on the Athens Exchange with a fixed coupon of 4.40% for a term of seven years, demonstrates the ability of the Partnership to raise incremental capital and provides us with financial flexibility in view of our vessel acquisition program in a rising interest rates environment. Importantly, the bond was issued at the low end of the yield range based on exceptionally high demand.?

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Bonds, nor shall it constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. In addition, this announcement is not intended as and shall not constitute a public offer or advertisement of securities in Greece or an invitation to make offers to purchase any securities in any EEA Member State within the meaning of Art. 2(d) or 2(k) of the Prospectus Regulation, respectively.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
