Success But at a Price – Box Ships’ IPO

Following quickly on the heels of the Golar LNG Partners LP offering, Box Ships Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Paragon Shipping Inc. became the second IPO of the year. Approximately three weeks ago, the company filed a registration statement to sell 10 million shares of the common stock of the company, leaving Paragon with a 22.7% stake. The sale would include a green shoe of a further 1.5 million shares. Pricing was expected to be between $15 and $17 per share and assuming midpoint pricing, gross proceeds would be $160 million. The net proceeds of the offering would be used to partially fund the acquisition of an initial fleet of six containerships, including three being acquired from Paragon, with an aggregate capacity of 28,177 TEU.
