NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 30, 2007 -- The Capital Link Forum "Invest in International Shipping" will take place on Friday, March 23, 2007 at the Metropolitan Club in New York City located at 1 East 60th Street -- corner of Fifth Avenue.

The objective of the Forum is to provide investors with a comprehensive review and outlook of the various shipping markets right after the companies' annual results. Also, to generate maximum publicity about shipping as an industry and the shipping companies to a wide audience of investors.

The Forum will start at 8:30 am on Friday, March 23, 2007 and is expected to finish by 4:15 pm. There will be four panels in total, on Containers, Gas (LNG/LPG), Tankers (Crude Oil and Products) and Dry Bulk with each panel lasting around one hour.

For the first time, each panel will include CEOs of listed shipping companies, charterers and shipbrokers. The panels will focus on industry trends rather than individual company characteristics as the objective is to present the point of view of key participants in each shipping sector. The Forum's attendees will have the opportunity to address their questions to each panel participant and to schedule one-on-one meetings with them.
