Tasos Aslidis, Chief Financial Officer of Euroseas commented: "The results of the third quarter of 2012 reflect the continued depressed state of the containership market while, at the same time, our overall results benefited from above market charter rates of our drybulk fleet. Overall, lower revenues during the third quarter of 2012 partly offset by lower drydocking expenses and lower derivative losses during the quarter as compared to the third quarter of 2011 resulted in a $0.8 million loss during the third quarter of 2012 compared to a $0.6 million net income during the third quarter of 2011.
"Total daily vessel operating expenses, including management fees, general and administrative expenses but excluding drydocking costs, registered a decrease of about 1.4% during the third quarter of 2012 compared to the same quarter of last year and a decrease of about 0.2% for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 over the same period of 2011. Drydocking expenses expressed on a per vessel per day basis were lower by 71.6% in the nine month period of 2012 and 36.9% lower for the third quarter of 2012, respectively, as compared to the same periods in 2011. As always, we want to emphasize that cost control remains a key component of our strategy.
"As of September 30, 2012, our outstanding debt was $65.0 million versus restricted and unrestricted cash of about $45.4 million. As of the same date, our scheduled debt repayments over the next 12 months amounted to about $16 million, a number low enough to provide us with significant operational cash flow comfort. All our debt covenants were satisfied as of September 30, 2012."
