ATHENS, Greece, July 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TOP Ships Inc. (the "Company"), an international owner and operator of modern, fuel efficient "ECO" tanker vessels currently focusing on the transportation of petroleum products, announced today that, effective immediately, it is terminating the equity distribution agreement (the "Agreement") with Maxim Group LLC providing for the "at-the-market" equity offering program (the "ATM Offering").
