Reverse Stock Split

Following the 1-for-4 reverse stock split which took effect on July 29, 2010, the issued share capital as of the date of this release is 7,240,852 shares of $0.004 each.

Fleet Development

In February 2010, the mid-1990s-built Handymax vessels "Sea Globe" and "Coral Globe" were delivered to their new owners, two unaffiliated third parties, generating net cash proceeds of $33.0 million in total.

In March 2010 the Company agreed to purchase en-bloc, from an unaffiliated third party, two dry bulk sistership geared and grab-fitted Supramax vessels for $32.85 million each. The vessels, named "Sky Globe" (built in November 2009) and "Star Globe" (built in May 2010), were delivered to Globus in May 2010.

In June 2010 the Company agreed to purchase from an unaffiliated third party the dry bulk Kamsarmax vessel "Jin Star" (built in January 2010) for $41.1 million, with an attached bareboat charter agreement at the gross daily rate of $14,250. The vessel was delivered to Globus on June 29, 2010.

On the date of this release, the Company's subsidiaries own five modern dry bulk carriers, consisting of three Supramaxes, one Panamax, and one Kamsarmax. On June 30, 2010 the fleet had an aggregate carrying capacity of 319,913 DWT and a weighted average age of approximately 3.4 years, which is a 72% reduction from the weighted average age of 12.1 years at June 30, 2009.

Fleet Deployment

The Panamax "Tiara Globe" is currently on a time charter with Transgrain Shipping that began in February 2010 and is scheduled to expire in a minimum of 24 months -- maximum of 26 months from such date, at the gross rate of $20,000 per day.

The Supramax "Star Globe" is currently on a time charter with Transgrain Shipping that began in May 2010 and is scheduled to expire in a minimum of 11 months -- maximum of 13 months from such date, at the gross rate of $22,000 per day.

The Supramax "Sky Globe" is currently trading in the spot market.

The Supramax "River Globe" is currently on a time charter with Eastern Bulk Carriers A/S that is scheduled to expire in September 2010 (maximum November 2010) at the gross rate of $25,000 per day.

The Kamsarmax vessel "Jin Star" is on a bareboat charter with Eastern Media International and Far Eastern Silo & Shipping for a period of five years (which can be extended for one year at the charterer's option, and thereafter extended one additional year at the Company's option), at the gross rate of $14,250 per day. As of the day of this press release, we have secured under fixed employment 73% of our fleet days for the remaining of 2010 and 51% for 2011.

Management Commentary

George Karageorgiou, Chief Executive Officer of Globus Maritime Limited, said:

"Taking into consideration both the reduced size of our fleet during the reporting period and the prevailing market conditions, we are happy to report healthy results for the three month and six month periods ended June 30, 2010.

"During the first six months of 2010 we continued with our fleet renewal and expansion strategy enhancing the foundation of long term growth for our company. We sold two 'older Handymaxes' and acquired three 'newer and larger' vessels, expanding the operational versatility of our fleet with the addition of a Kamsarmax vessel. We now have a modern fleet of five dry bulk carriers comprised of three Supramaxes, one Panamax and one Kamsarmax with a weighted average age of just 3.4 years, which is a 72% reduction from the weighted average age of 12.1 years at June 30, 2009.

"As of today, we have secured under fixed employment 73% of our fleet days for 2010 and 51% for 2011.

"We are also pleased to reinstate the dividend, and have declared an interim dividend of GB 7.3 pence per share, consistent with our dividend policy.

"We are currently evaluating strategies that can enhance shareholder value for the long term. In July 2010, we consolidated our shares through a 4-for-1 reverse split, in preparation of a possible listing on a U.S. Stock Exchange. As announced, we believe that listing Globus on U.S. Exchange may result in our shares trading at a more favorable price relative to their net asset value than has recently been the case. In addition, we also believe that through a U.S. listing our Company would be in a better position to raise funds for its future development.

"We remain committed to pursue further accretive expansion opportunities, while safeguarding the strength of our balance sheet maximizing shareholder value. With a modern fleet, a strong balance sheet, a clear strategy and experienced management team we believe that Globus is strategically positioned to take advantage of the positive long term fundamentals of dry bulk shipping."

Elias Deftereos, Chief Financial Officer, added:

"Our results for the reporting period reflect the smaller size of our fleet and the continued volatility of market conditions. Taking into consideration the reduced size of the fleet we report a net income of $1.0 million during the period compared to a net loss of $11.6 million in the corresponding period in 2009.

"Our Company is in a strong financial condition. As of today, total bank debt outstanding is $102.2 million while our restricted and unrestricted cash balances are $27.1 million. Our net debt to net book capitalization (net debt plus equity) stands at 40%, a moderate figure for our industry, enabling us to pursue further fleet growth opportunities."

Review of Results for the Second Quarter 2010 -- unaudited

Globus began the second quarter of 2010 operating only two vessels, the "River Globe" and the "Tiara Globe". The sistership vessels "Sky Globe" and "Star Globe" were delivered to Globus in May 2010, and the vessel "Jin Star" was delivered on June 29, 2010. Consequently during Q2-10 Globus had an average of 2.9 vessels in its fleet whereas during Q2-09 the average number was 7.0 vessels.

Gross revenues were $5.8 million during Q2-10 compared to $14.8 million during Q2-09. Net revenues reached $5.4 million in Q2-10 compared to $13.8 million a year ago. The decrease is attributable to the decrease in the size of the fleet. Furthermore, during Q2-10 the vessels earned an average TCE of $20,724 per vessel per day as opposed to Q2-09 during which they earned an average TCE of US$22,065.

Voyage expenses decreased by $0.6 million, or 60%, to $0.4 million in Q2-10 compared to $1.0 million in 2009. This decrease is attributable to the decrease in revenues and the reduction of the size of the fleet.

Vessel operating expenses, which include crew costs, provisions, deck and engine stores, lubricating oils, insurance, maintenance, and repairs, decreased by $1.6 million, or 55%, and came to $1.3 million for Q2-10 versus $2.9 million a year ago, a decrease mainly due to the smaller fleet. While crew salaries were paid in U.S. dollars, a significant portion of other vessel operating expenses are regularly paid in currencies other than the U.S. dollar.

Average daily operating expenses reached $5,146 in Q2-10 compared to US$4,491 for the same period in 2009. The increase in the average daily operating expenses is mostly due to the initial supplies for the vessels "Sky Globe" and "Star Globe" which were delivered to Globus in May 2010.

Administrative expenses for Q2-10 decreased by $1.3 million or 62% to $0.8 million, compared to $2.1 million in 2009. The decrease is due to the decrease of share-based payments.

Interest expenses amounted to $0.4 million versus $0.8 million in Q2-09, attributable primarily to the lower level of debt.

Moreover, the results for the second quarter of 2010 include a $0.4 million non-cash loss from the change in the fair value of interest rate derivatives compared to a $0.2 million non-cash gain in the second quarter of 2009. The valuation of these interest rate swaps at the end of each quarter is affected by the prevailing interest rates at that time. The changes in the fair values of interest rate swaps are recorded in income as they do not meet the criteria for hedge accounting.

Foreign exchange losses amount to $0.2 million for Q2-10. Foreign exchange losses resulted primarily from currency exchanges to pay for operating expenses of the fleet and general and administrative expenses, a material portion of which were in currencies other than the U.S. dollar.

Three newly-established 100% subsidiaries of the Company bought the vessels "Sky Globe", "Star Globe", and "Jin Star" in Q2-10; cash used in investing activities was $106.1 million in the second quarter of 2010.

Review of Results for Six Months Ended June 30, 2010 -- unaudited

Globus began the year operating four vessels. The vessels "Sea Globe" and "Coral Globe" were sold in February 2010, the vessels "Sky Globe" and "Star Globe" were delivered to Globus in May 2010, and the vessel "Jin Star" was delivered on June 29, 2010. Consequently, during H1-10 the Company had an average of 2.97 vessels in its fleet whereas during H1-09 the average number was 7.0 vessels. The ownership days came to 538 versus 1,267 ownership days in H1-09, a reduction of 58%.

For the six months ended June 30, 2010, as a result of the decrease in the number of vessels in the Company's fleet, gross revenues amounted to $11.6 million versus $26.5 million in the corresponding period of 2009. Net revenues in H1-10 came to $10.8 million versus $24.5 million a year ago, a reduction by 56%.

During the first half of 2010 the vessels were earning an average TCE of $20,060 per vessel per day as opposed to H1-09 when they were earning an average TCE of US$19,484.

Voyage expenses decreased by $1.3 million, or 62%, to $0.8 million in H1-10 compared to $2.1 million in 2009. This decrease is attributable to the decrease in revenues and the reduction of the size of the fleet.

Vessel operating expenses decreased by $3.1 million, or 54%, and came to $2.6 million for H1-10 versus $5.7 million a year ago, a decrease mainly due to the smaller fleet. While crew salaries were paid in U.S. dollars, a significant portion of other vessel operating expenses are regularly paid in currencies other than the U.S. dollar.

Average daily operating expenses reached $4,922 compared to US$4,481 during the same period in 2009. This 10% increase in the average daily operating expenses is mostly due to the initial supplies for the vessels "Sky Globe" and "Star Globe" which were delivered to Globus in May 2010.

Depreciation decreased by $4.2 million to $2.8 million for H1-10, compared to $7.0 million for 2009. Amortization of drydocking costs decreased by $0.5 million to $0.3 million compared to $0.8 million for 2009. The decrease is directly the result of the decrease in the number of vessels in the fleet.

Total administrative expenses for H1-10 (including administrative expenses payable to related parties and non-cash share-based payments) decreased by $1.3 million or 43% to $1.7 million, compared to $3.0 million in 2009. The decrease is largely due to the decrease of non-cash share-based payments. Non-cash share-based payments of $0.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 relate to the amortization of the cost recognized for vested share awards issued to executive officers and employees under the Company's incentive plan.

In H1-09 the Company had incurred a non-cash impairment charge of $18.8 million. There was no impairment charge in H1-10.

Interest income decreased by $0.3 million to $0.2 million in 2010, as compared to $0.5 million in the same period in 2009. The decrease is attributable to the lower prevailing LIBOR rates.

Interest expense decreased by $0.6 million or 38%, to $1.0 million in 2010, compared to $1.6 million in 2009. The decrease is attributable to the decreased average loan balances. All of the Company's bank loans are denominated in U.S. dollars.

Moreover, the results for the first half of 2010 include a $0.6 million non-cash loss from the change in the fair value of interest rate derivatives compared to a $0.3 million non-cash gain in the same period of 2009. The changes in the fair values of interest rate swaps are recorded in income as they do not meet the criteria for hedge accounting.

Foreign exchange losses amount to $1.0 million for H1-10. Foreign exchange losses resulted primarily from the change in the fair value of cash deposits in Euro, as well as currency exchanges to pay for vessel operating expenses and general and administrative expenses, a material portion of which were in currencies other than the U.S. dollar.

Net Income for H1-10 came to $1.0 million versus a Net Loss of $11.6 million for the first six months of 2009.

Two subsidiaries of the Company sold the vessels "Sea Globe" and "Coral Globe" for $33.0 million in total in Q1-10, and three newly-established subsidiaries of the Company bought the vessels "Sky Globe", "Star Globe", and "Jin Star" for $106.1 million in total in Q2-10; cash used in investing activities was $72.7 million in the first half of 2010.

Financing Activities & Cash Management

Outstanding bank debt at December 31, 2009 was $43.6 million to Credit Suisse and $27.0 million to Deutsche Schiffsbank, or $70.6 million in total. In addition, at December 31, 2009, the Company had committed undrawn funds up to $36.4 million under the facility with Credit Suisse.

In February 2010, Globus fully repaid the $27.0 million loan to Deutsche Schiffsbank upon the sale of the vessels "Sea Globe" and "Coral Globe". The Bank released $5.0 million from the deposit that was pledged as security for this loan.

In April 2010 Globus repaid early to Credit Suisse the regular semi-annual installment of $3.6 million (due in May) and reduced the committed undrawn funds to $35.5 million.

In May 2010 the Company drew the $35.5 million from Credit Suisse to finance the vessels "Sky Globe" and "Star Globe".

In June 2010 a subsidiary of the Company agreed a new facility with Deutsche Schiffsbank for $26.7 million, which it drew to finance the acquisition of the vessel "Jin Star".

Globus paid $0.4 million in interest for its bank loans during Q2-10, bringing the total interest paid for H1-10 to $0.9 million.

Cash provided by financing activities was $58.0 million in Q2-10 and $35.5 million in H1-10.

At June 30, 2010, total debt to the two banks amounted to $102.2 million while no amount remained undrawn.

Cash at June 30, 2010 was $22.7 million. Cash on the date of this release is $27.1 million.

Notes:

(1) Average number of vessels is the number of vessels that constituted the Company's fleet for the relevant period, as measured by the sum of the number of days each vessel was a part of the fleet during the period divided by the number of ownership days in the period.

(2) The average age of the fleet is calculated by aggregating the individual age of each vessel in the fleet at the period end weighted by each vessel's deadweight tonnage in proportion to the deadweight tonnage of the whole fleet at the period end.

(3) Ownership days are the aggregate number of days in a period during which each vessel in the fleet has been owned by the Company. Ownership days are an indicator of the size of the fleet over a period and affect both the amount of revenues and the amount of expenses that are recorded during a period.

(4) Available days are the number of ownership days less the aggregate number of days that vessels are off-hire due to scheduled repairs or repairs under guarantee, vessel upgrades or special surveys and the aggregate amount of time spent positioning vessels. The shipping industry uses available days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels should be capable of generating revenues.

(5) Operating days are the number of available days in a period less the aggregate number of days that vessels are off-hire due to any reason, including unforeseen circumstances. The shipping industry uses operating days to measure the aggregate number of days in a period during which vessels actually generate revenues.

(6) Fleet utilisation is measured by dividing the number of operating days during a period by the number of available days during the same period. The shipping industry uses fleet utilisation to measure a company's efficiency in finding suitable employment for its vessels and minimising the amount of days that its vessels are off-hire for reasons other than scheduled repairs or repairs under guarantee, vessel upgrades, special surveys or vessel positioning.

(7) Average daily vessel operating expenses, which include crew wages and related costs, the cost of insurance, expenses relating to repairs and maintenance, the costs of spares and consumable stores, tonnage taxes and other miscellaneous expenses, are calculated by dividing vessel operating expenses by ownership days for the relevant period, excluding bareboat charter days.

(8) TCE rates are defined as time and voyage charter revenues less voyage expenses during a period divided by the number of available days during the period, excluding bareboat charter net revenue and days, which is consistent with industry standards. Voyage expenses include port charges, bunker (fuel oil and diesel oil) expenses, canal charges and commissions. TCE rate is a standard shipping industry performance measure used primarily to compare daily earnings generated by vessels on time charters with daily earnings generated by vessels on voyage charters, because charter hire rates for vessels on voyage charters are generally not expressed in per day amounts while charter hire rates for vessels on time charters are generally expressed in such amounts.
