GK Investor's Genco Campaign Results in Material Improvement

Business Wire 16-May-2024 2:48 PM

Notes Company's Significant Share Price Increase Following Public Pressure

GK Investor LLC ("GK"), a shareholder of Genco Shipping & Trading Limited ("Genco" or the "Company") (NYSE:GNK), today announced the following:

On December 28, 2023, the last trading day before GK publicly announced its position in Genco, the closing price of Genco's common stock was $16.48. Yesterday, the closing price of Genco's common stock was $22.53. GK believes that its advocacy on behalf of all common shareholders has been an important wake-up call to Genco's complacent Board of Directors (the "Board") and has contributed to the improved performance of Genco's common stock – thereby providing an attractive return to shareholders, including GK. GK also believes that its efforts were a principal driver behind Genco's decision to focus on capital allocation, reduce its discount to NAV and add a new voice in the boardroom. Consequently, GK is withdrawing its nomination of Mr. Robert Pons as a candidate for election to Genco's Board as well as its bylaw repeal proposal. GK intends to continue to closely monitor Genco and the actions of its current Chairman and Board, and expects to continue to hold them accountable.

GK thanks Mr. Robert Pons for his tireless efforts as its nominee and willingness to represent the best interests of all shareholders, despite being subject to baseless personal attacks from Genco's Board.
