Before one-time gains resulting from dilution on Stolt-Nielsen S.A.'s (SNSA) interest in Stolt Offshore S.A. and the sale of assets, the net loss for the nine-month period ended August 31, 2000 was $7.5 million or $0.14 per share. For the nine-month period of 2001, the weighted basic average number of shares outstanding was 54.9 million, compared with 54.6 million for the same period in 2000. Stolt-Nielsen Transportation Group's (SNTG) income from operations during the third quarter improved to $41.1 million, almost doubling the $21.2 million in the third quarter of 2000, and was also up from the $35.8 million in the second quarter of 2001. For the nine-month period in 2001, income from operations improved to $106.1 million from $60.9 million last year. Results also benefited from lower bunker fuel prices. Income from operations rose to $29.7 million in the third quarter from $11.6 million in the third quarter of 2000. In early December, we expect to take delivery of the M/T Stolt Perseverance, the last ship of our 24 ship, $1.3 billion newbuilding program.
