Oslo, 25 March 2022 – MPC Container Ships ASA (the "Company", together with its subsidiaries the "Group") today published its FY 2021 Annual Report, including the Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Statement, Remuneration Report and Corporate Governance Report as separate sections. Furthermore, the Company’s FY 2021 ESG Report has been published as a separate document.
As at 31 December 2021, the Group owns and operates 68 container vessels, whereof 61 are fully owned and 7 are operated in a joint venture.
CEO Constantin Baack comments in relation to the announcement: “For MPCC the year 2021 marks the successful transition from significant growth to a very strong value proposition on the back of high earnings visibility for the years ahead.
At the time of issuing our FY 2021 Annual Report, we continue to see supply chain disruptions, that are recently re-emphasised by the lockdowns in China, which will continue to exert pressure on the logistical infrastructure. Moreover, we are presently witnessing a geopolitical crisis which we sincerely hope will de-escalate.
During the first months of 2022, we have significantly improved our earnings visibility as we continue to conclude charter contracts well in advance of redelivery of the vessel, at prolonged periods and record rates. The milestones and impressive results of 2021 have only been possible due to the dedication, tremendous efforts and flexibility of the crews onboard our vessels and our onshore staff, for which I am grateful. Furthermore, I would like to thank our customers and partners for their vote of confidence in MPCC, and our shareholders for their continued support.”
The FY 2021 Annual Report and the FY 2021 ESG Report are attached hereto and made available on the Company's webpage www.mpc-container.com.
The Company also publishes the annual report in European Single Electronic Format (ESEF), available as an attachment to this release.
