Paragon Shipping Inc's Comment on Competitors and Industry Peers

We operate in a highly competitive market based primarily on supply and demand. We compete for charters on the basis of price, vessel location, size, age and condition of the vessel, as well as on our reputation. Allseas arranges our charters through the use of brokers, who negotiate the terms of the charters based on market conditions. We compete primarily with other owners of drybulk carriers, many of which may have more resources than us and may operate vessels that are newer, and therefore more attractive to charterers, than our vessels. Ownership of drybulk carriers is highly fragmented and is divided among publicly listed companies, state controlled owners and independent shipowners. Some of our publicly listed competitors include Baltic Trading Inc. (NYSE: BALT), Diana Shipping Inc. (NYSE: DSX), DryShips Inc. (NASDAQ: DRYS), Eagle Bulk Shipping Inc. (NASDAQ: EGLE), Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. (NYSE: NM), Star Bulk Inc. (NASDAQ: SBLK), Safe Bulkers Inc. (NYSE: SB) and Scorpio Bulkers (NYSE: SALT).

In the future, entities affiliated with our Chairman, President, Chief Executive Officer and Interim Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Michael Bodouroglou, may seek to acquire drybulk carriers. One or more of these vessels may be managed by Allseas and may compete with the vessels in our fleet. Mr. Bodouroglou and entities affiliated with him, including Allseas, might be faced with conflicts of interest with respect to their own interests and their obligations to us.

Mr. Bodouroglou has entered into an agreement with us pursuant to which he and the entities which he controls will grant us a right of first refusal on any drybulk carrier that these entities may acquire in the future. In addition, we have entered into an agreement with Box Ships and Mr. Bodouroglou that provides that so long as (i) Mr. Bodouroglou is a director or executive officer of both our Company and Box Ships and (ii) we own at least 5% of the total issued and outstanding common shares of Box Ships, Box Ships will not, directly or indirectly, acquire or charter any drybulk carrier without our prior written consent and we will not, directly or indirectly, acquire or charter any containership vessel without the prior written consent of Box Ships.
