Ed Coll, said “We came through the toughest dry bulk market the industry has ever experienced in excellent shape.  We generated $67 million of adjusted EBITDA during this two year span, and deployed capital to expand our fleet and grow our business in ways that better serve our customers, spread shipping risks, and provide steady returns to our shareholders.  We did this while recording positive net earnings, paying down debt and keeping our promises to our lenders by improving our balance sheet and leverage ratios. These actions helped us expand our credit capabilities to borrow for expansion at reasonable rates and terms.  I am very thankful and proud of our entire organization, our customers and partners, and all of our employees for the hard work in difficult times.  We look forward to even greater success as the drybulk market continues to improve.”
