Arlington Tankers Announces Unaudited 2Q 2007 Results

Wednesday, July 25, 2007
Arlington Tankers Ltd. announced financial results for the second quarter and the six months ended June 30, 2007. For the quarter ended June 30, 2007, the Company's total revenues were $17.8 million, consisting of $16.5m in basic vessel charter hire and $1.3 million in additional charter hire that the Company received under its profit sharing arrangements. On the basis of the second quarter results, Arlington's Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.59 per share. The dividend is payable on August 6, 2007 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 3, 2007.

The additional charter hire earned during the second quarter of 2007 was derived from profit sharing arrangements under the time charters of the company's V-MAX, Panamax and Product vessels. Of the $1.3 million in additional charter hire, $545,000 was attributed to contractually guaranteed profit sharing for the two V-MAX vessels. The additional $751,000 was attributed to additional charter hire from the Company's two Panamax tankers and the Company's two Product tankers that are eligible to earn additional charter hire. For these four vessels, the average time charter equivalent rates under the Company's profit sharing agreements over the preceding twelve months were in excess of contractual minimum levels. The company's operating expenses during the second quarter of 2007, including depreciation costs of $3.8 million and administrative expenses of $614,000, were $9.4 million. The Company's interest expense, net of interest income for the second quarter of 2007, was $3.2 million. This expense represents interest under the company's $229.5m, secured credit facility with The Royal Bank of Scotland plc. The Company's net income for the second quarter of 2007 was increased by an unrealized gain of approximately $3.4 million, representing the change in the fair value of the Company's interest rate swap arrangement related to its secured credit facility with The Royal Bank of Scotland plc. As a result, the company's net income for the second quarter of 2007 was $8.5m, or $0.55 per share. Excluding the effect of this unrealized gain, the Company's net income for the second quarter of 2007 was $5.1m, or $0.33 per share.
