On the ship management front, the Co-operation Agreement between our manager and V-Ships provides us both with the resources needed to achieve our growth plans and the flexibility to adjust the size of our fleet depending on market conditions in a highly cyclical industry.

Regarding new transactions, we bought a 2003 built approx. 6,000 TEU container vessel for a purchase price of $22.2 million. The vessel has been chartered for a period of 12-15 months at a rate yielding attractive returns with a lot of upside.

At the same time we took advantage of a strong demolition market and sold a 29 - year old vessel; the transaction resulted in an accounting gain of approximately $3.2 million.

In a challenging market we have minimized our re-chartering risk. The charters for the vessels opening in 2013 and 2014 account for approximately 4% and 3% of our 2013 and 2014 contracted revenues respectively."
