INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS FORM 6-K REPORT

TOP Ships Inc. (NASDAQ: TOPS) , an international ship-owning company (the "Company"), announced today that it has completed the previously announced purchase agreement by and among the Company and Kalani Investments Limited dated February 2, 2017, as amended (the "Purchase Agreement") and that since September 29, 2017 it has issued and sold 3,073,168 common shares par value $0.01 per share pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. As a result of these issuances the Company currently has issued and outstanding 10,154,220 shares. Also, as of the date hereof, the Company has 1,736 Series C Convertible Preferred Shares outstanding.
Furthermore in connection with sales completed under the Purchase Agreement, the Exercise Price (as defined in the Warrant Agreement) of the Warrants (the "Warrants") issued in a public offering by the Company pursuant to the warrant agreement dated June 11, 2014 (the "Warrant Agreement") is adjusted to $0.48 and the number of common shares of the Company purchasable by each Warrant is 5.19 Warrant Shares (as defined in the Warrant Agreement). Also, as previously announced, the issuance of the Series C Convertible Preferred Shares constitutes an issuance of Variable Price Securities (as defined in the Warrant Agreement) and that, pursuant to Section 2(d) of the Warrant Agreement, each Holder shall have the right, but not the obligation, to, in any exercise of Warrants, adopt the Variable Price (as defined in the Warrant Agreement) at which the Series C Convertible Preferred Shares are convertible as the Exercise Price of the Warrants.
Finally, the Company announced that its remaining contractual commitments for the acquisition of its newbuilding fleet, net of expected debt drawdowns under debt facilities in place, amounts to $30.7 million and that it expects to fund current and future capital commitments, pursuant to its growth strategy, partly through traditional bank financing and partly through the capital markets via debt and equity issuances.
The information contained in this report on Form 6-K is hereby incorporated by reference into the Company's registration statement on Form F-3 (File No. 333-215577) that was filed with the SEC and became effective on February 1, 2017.

Forward-Looking Statements
Matters discussed in this press release may constitute forward-looking statements. The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides safe harbor protections for forward-looking statements in order to encourage companies to provide prospective information about their business. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events or performance, and underlying assumptions and other statements, which are other than statements of historical facts.
The Company desires to take advantage of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and is including this cautionary statement in connection with this safe harbor legislation. The words "believe," "anticipate," "intends," "estimate," "forecast," "project," "plan," "potential," "may," "should," "expect" "pending" and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements in this press release are based upon various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including without limitation, our management's examination of historical operating trends, data contained in our records and other data available from third parties. Although we believe that these assumptions were reasonable when made, because these assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond our control, we cannot assure you that we will achieve or accomplish these expectations, beliefs or projections.
In addition to these important factors, other important factors that, in our view, could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements include the strength of world economies and currencies, general market conditions, including fluctuations in charter rates and vessel values, failure of a seller to deliver one or more vessels or of a buyer to accept delivery of one or more vessels, inability to procure acquisition financing, default by one or more charterers of our ships, changes in the demand for crude oil and petroleum products, changes in demand for dry bulk shipping capacity, changes in our operating expenses, including bunker prices, drydocking and insurance costs, the market for our vessels, availability of financing and refinancing, changes in governmental rules and regulations or actions taken by regulatory authorities, potential liability from pending or future litigation, general domestic and international political conditions, potential disruption of shipping routes due to accidents or political events, vessels breakdowns and instances of off-hires and other factors. Please see our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a more complete discussion of these and other risks and uncertainties.
