Greece's Diana Shipping reports fourth quarter and year ended 31, December, 2012 results.

Diana Shipping Inc. a shipping company specializing in the ownership and operation of dry bulk vessels, reported net income of US$ 5.0-million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to net income of US$ 20.2-million reported in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Time charter revenues were $49.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $57.4 million for the same period of 2011, mainly due to reduced time charter rates.
