Danaos' CEO Dr. John Coustas commented:

The company's performance for the first 9 months of 2012 is a testament to the resilience of our business model during a challenging period for the container market. Adjusted Net Income stands at $48.8 million or $0.44 per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $45.0 million or $0.41 per share for the same period one year ago. Adjusted EBITDA has reached $319.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to $229.8 million for the same period one year ago as a result of our fleet expansion program concluded in the previous quarter.

In terms of macro-economic fundamentals, the European financial crisis has been at the forefront of a global economic slowdown this year, with the expectation being that European GDP will marginally contract in 2012. This has also impacted economic growth in the United States which has been sluggish but still expected to do better than 2011, while it is now clear that the pace of growth in China will be moderated. This global slowdown has adversely affected container trade growth and it is clear that the industry is currently facing a demand supply imbalance.
