On a time charter basis, revenues for the quarter were $41,771,000 an increase of 29.9 percent over the $32,157,000 recorded in the third quarter of last year, mainly due to the expansion of the fleet.

Our focus on signing long-term time charter contracts has proven its worth as a way to generate considerable profitability in a challenging tanker market. In the third quarter, we continued to sign profitable contracts that will provide our shareholders with significant earnings visibility through 2004."
