Arlington Tankers Ltd. (ATB), a sea borne transporter of crude oil and petroleum products, announced first quarter financial results, reporting a net loss, reversing a profit in the year-ago quarter.
The , Bermuda-based company's first quarter non-GAAP net income declined to $4.64m or $0.30 per share from $4.93 million or $0.32 per share in the same quarter a year ago. On an average, four analysts polled by First Call/Thomson Financial estimated the company to earn $0.29 per share for the quarter.
