If Korea Lines pays their bills to Eagle, I see no problems.Consensus is that shipping rates have hit bottom and areon their way up.Eagle has the optimum size of ship and a lot of them,and will survive quite nicely.That is my opinion.

Here's the problem: EGLE is mired in debt - 1.13 billion drawn against a 1.2 billion revolving credit line (700k buys bunkers for one ship for one trip). The total asset value of their fleet is way below their debt load and current market conditions are making it very difficult for them to cover operating expenses. The freight market will have to turn around considerably and fast to overcome this problem. With some 1600 new buildings slated for delivery worldwide in 2012 into an already vastly overtonnaged market, I just don't see this market improving at the rate necessary to improve EGLE's prospects much, if at all.
