MPC Container Ships (MPCC) has upgraded its earnings after raising another $71.6m from two more sub-panamax boxship sales.

The company is selling the 50%-owned, 2,564-teu AS Petulia (built 2008) and the wholly-owned 2566-teu AS Palatia (built 2006) for $35.8m each.

The sales helped the Oslo-listed company upgrade its revenues forecast to the range of $360-365m and expected Ebitda in the range of $305-315m.

That includes an estimated gain of $99m related to nine containerships sold since July, of which six will be handed over by the end of the year.
