CEO Statement
Mr. Paul Wogan, Chief Executive Officer, stated “This has been yet another good quarter for GasLog. Not only did we continue to execute on our existing business plan that we outlined to investors at the time of our initial public offering (“IPO”), we have once again been able to add further growth at attractive returns. The latest 2 newbuildings that we have ordered from Samsung and which, on delivery, will commence 7 year charters to BG, clearly demonstrates the ability of GasLog’s LNG shipping platform to continue to add accretive growth in what we believe will be a positive long term secular trend for the LNG industry."
