Interest income for the three months ended June 30, 2010 was $60,000 and was $163,000 in the comparative 2009 period. For the six months ended June 30, 2010, interest income was $95,000 and was $305,000 in the comparative 2009 period.Change in Fair Value of Financial Instruments The Company hedges the majority of its interest rate exposure by entering into derivatives that swap floating rate debt for fixed rate debt to provide long-term stability and predictability to cash flows. As these hedges do not qualify for hedge accounting under US GAAP, the outstanding hedges are marked to market at each period end with any change in the fair value being booked to the income and expenditure account. The Company's derivative hedging instruments gave a $16.4 million loss in the three months ended June 30, 2010, reflecting primarily movements in the forward curve for interest rates. Of this amount, $3.9 million was a realized loss for settlements of swaps in the period and $12.5 million was an unrealized loss for revaluation of the balance sheet position. This compares to a $13.9 million gain in the three months ended June 30, 2009 of which $2.8 million was a realized loss and $16.7 million was an unrealized gain.
