Arlington Tankers Announces Unaudited 3Q Results

Tuesday, October 24, 2006
Cash Dividend of $0.60 Per Share Arlington Tankers Ltd. announced unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2006. For the quarter ended September 30, 2006, the company's total revenues were $17.6 million, consisting of $16.2 million in basic vessel charter hire and $1.4 million in additional charter hire that the Company received under its profit sharing arrangements. On the basis of the third quarter results from operations, Arlington's Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.60 per share. The dividend is payable on November 7, 2006 to shareholders of record at the close of business on November 3, 2006. Third Quarter Results The additional charter hire earned during the third quarter of 2006 was derived from profit sharing arrangements under the time charters of the Company's V-MAX, Panamax and Product vessels. Of the $1.4 million in additional charter hire, $600,000 was attributed to contractually guaranteed profit sharing for the two V-MAX vessels. The remaining $800,000 was attributed to our Panamax and Product tankers where the average time charter equivalent rates under our profit sharing agreements were in excess of contractual minimum levels over the preceding twelve months.

The company's operating expenses during the third quarter of 2006, including depreciation costs of $4.1 million and administrative expenses of $562,000 were $9.2 million. The company's interest expense, net of interest income for the third quarter of 2006, was $3.2 million. This expense represents interest under the Company's $229.5 million, five-year, secured credit facility with The Royal Bank of Scotland plc.

The Company's net income for the third quarter of 2006 was reduced by a $5.2 million unrealized loss 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 third quarter of 2006 was $37,000, or $0.00 per share. Excluding the effect of this unrealized loss, the Company's net income for the third quarter of 2006 was $5.2 million, or $0.34 per share.
