Genco Shipping & Trading Limited reports its financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012.

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.

EBITDA was $82.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 versus $249.1 million 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.

John C. Wobensmith, Chief Financial Officer, commented, "During the year, management took proactive measures enabling Genco to enhance its financial strength and flexibility. Specifically, we amended our three credit facilities under favorable terms and completed a follow-on equity offering."
