Since the second quarter announcement, International Shipholding Corporation’s intent to dispose of certain of its assets, their Cape-size Bulk Carrier was sold during the third quarter. The process of disposing of the LASH Assets and the special purpose barges is continuing. Excluding the $51.6 million impairment loss, net loss for the nine months of 2001 was $11.3 million as compared to net income of $61,000 for the nine months of 2000.
