The Proxy Statement included a proposal to approve the vessel acquisition proposal for the proposed acquisition by Seanergy Maritime Holdings Corp. (f/k/a Seanergy Merger Corp.), a wholly owned subsidiary of Seanergy (Seanergy Buyer), of six dry bulk carriers, including a newly built vessel and one vessel currently under construction, from affiliates of members of the Restis family (Restis) and the proposed dissolution and liquidation proposal pursuant to the plan of dissolution and liquidation of Seanergy Maritime Corp. We are now supplementing our definitive proxy statement to reflect that certain Amendment No. 2 (the Amendment) to the Voting Agreement by and among Seanergy, Mr. Panagiotis Zafet, Mr. Simon Zafet, the Investors, and the Original Founders, and that an affiliate of members of the Restis family purchased 1,565,020 shares of our common stock on August 11, 2008.
