The timing and amount of dividends, if any, is at the discretion of the Board. The Company cannot guarantee that its Board will declare dividends in the future.

Corporate strategy

The objective for Himalaya is to maximize shareholder returns from the twelve Newcastlemax vessels once the vessels are complete and delivered by the yard. The Group will look to charter the vessels with significantly lower emissions compared to a standard capesize to strong counterparties and will focus on returning the maximum capital to the shareholders in the form of a high dividend yield payout. The Company will have an opportunistic approach to growth and M&A, however it intends to be disciplined in its investment strategy to maximize shareholder returns.

Financial strategy

The strategy for the company is to maximise the financial results from the investment through low G&A cost, a sound financial debt structure, and monthly distribution of all free cashflow.
