Through our efforts to grow our fleet, including the newly-delivered m/v APL Garnet, we now have a fleet of 10 vessels – a significant increase over the two vessels we owned at the end of 2010. The growth of our fleet contributed to a dramatic rise in revenues and solid earnings for the third quarter of 2012.
