The sustainable growth drivers we have put in place enabled our team to continue delivering positive results despite persistent industry headwinds.

Mr. Tavlarios continued, "With Aegean's U.S. East Coast operations successfully integrated, we have strengthened our industry leadership and global market share.  We remain focused on diversifying our geographical presence and increasing asset utilization both through the expected introduction of our new Fujairah storage facility in the second half of 2014 and the potential addition of new service centers.  In addition, with the sale of two older, non-core vessels, Aegean continued to streamline its expense structure and generate sustainable results.  We are excited about our opportunities to build significant shareholder value over the long-term."
