On March 7, Castor Maritime says the company completed the previously announced spin-off of the Aframax/LR2 and Handysize tanker segments through the distribution of all of the common shares of Toro Corp. to CTRM shareholders of record as of February 22.

What Else: Castor Maritime says the spin-off is an important strategic step that will establish Toro as a ‘pure play' tanker business at a time of increased focus on energy supplies and as the tanker shipping market enjoys strong supply demand fundamentals, as demonstrated especially in the second half of 2022.

According to data from Benzinga Pro, CTRM has a 52-week high of $2.45 and a 52-week low of $0.76.
