Financial Review: Full Year 2012
The net loss attributable to Genco was $144.9 million or $3.47 basic and diluted loss per share for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to net income attributable to Genco of $25.4 million or $0.72 basic and diluted earnings per share for the year ended December 31, 2011.

TCE rates obtained by the Company decreased to $9,706 per day for the year ended December 31, 2012 from $17,644 per day for the year ended December 31, 2011, mainly due to lower rates achieved for our vessels during 2012 as compared to 2011.
