Pyxis Tankers Inc. is a newly formed international maritime transportation company with a focus on the tanker sector. At the consummation of the proposed merger (the “Merger”) with LookSmart, Ltd., Pyxis’ fleet will be comprised of six double hull product tankers with an weighted average age of 4.3 years (based on deadweight tonnage as of June 30, 2015) and that are employed under a mix of short- and medium-term time charters and spot charters. Pyxis will acquire these six vessels prior to the Merger from an affiliate of its founder and chief executive officer, Mr. Valentios (“Eddie”) Valentis. Four of the vessels in the fleet will be medium-range, or MR, product tankers, three of which have eco-efficient or eco-modified designs and two will be short-range tanker sister ships. Each of the vessels in the fleet is capable of transporting refined petroleum products, such as naphtha, gasoline, jet fuel, kerosene, diesel and fuel oil, as well as other liquid bulk items, such as vegetable oils and organic chemicals.
