Maritrans Reports Good Quarter Results
Tuesday, February 20, 2001
Maritrans Inc. reports net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2000 of $2.3 million on revenues of $32.2 million. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2000 was $5 million on revenues of $123.7 million. Commenting on the results, Stephen A. Van Dyck, Chairman and CEO, said “The year 2000 was the first full year of operating with a smaller fleet and a reduced shoreside staff. Our lower operating costs reflect this. The results in the second half are more representative of our expectations for the next several quarters.
In December 2000, Maritrans 244 went back into service after her successful double hull rebuild. We have received a patent on this proprietary process, and prefabrication has begun for the rebuild of the barge Ocean Cities, scheduled to enter the shipyard this spring.”
