Felipe Menendez, Ultrapetrol's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "During the third quarter, Ultrapetrol achieved strong growth in its River and Offshore Supply businesses while taking steps to position its Ocean Business for future growth.

"In the River Business, volumes increased 21% as we transported significantly more iron ore cargoes, consistent with our expectations. In addition, third quarter and nine-months segment adjusted EBITDA in the River Business grew more than five and six times respectively. We believe that this growth was a direct result of the Company's efficiency initiatives focused on operating an increased number of new barges, utilizing larger and more efficient engines and transporting a better mix of cargoes."
