Ultrapetrol Reports Financial Results For Third Quarter 2010

Mr. Menendez continued, "In our Offshore Supply Business, we nearly doubled segment adjusted EBITDA for the nine-month period, reflecting the operation of six vessels secured on attractive long-term charters in Brazil. We look forward to doubling the size of our Offshore Supply fleet over the near-term, as we take delivery of six new PSVs. With our anticipated growth, we are in a strong position to support Brazil's drilling program that will make the region the second largest market in the world for offshore services.

"In our Ocean Business, we continued to successfully operate our product tankers during a time when we eliminated our Capesize exposure by disposing of our remaining Capesize vessel in the third quarter. We are pleased that our new container feeder operation has met its target sooner than expected and as a result we have decided to add a new vessel to this service which we expect to receive in the Far East in the fourth quarter."

Overview of Financial Results

Total revenues for third quarter of 2010 were $58.6 million, as compared with $58.5 million in the same period of 2009.

Adjusted consolidated EBITDA for third quarter 2010 was $14.0 million compared with $14.3 million in the same period of 2009.

Reported net loss for the third quarter 2010 was $7.0 million or $0.24 per share, as compared with a net loss of $4.2 million, or $0.14 per share, during the same period of 2009. Third quarter 2010 net loss includes a $2.0 million, or $0.07 per share, income tax loss for unrealized foreign exchange rate gains on U.S. dollar-denominated debt of our Brazilian subsidiary in the Offshore Supply Business, excludes a $1.3 million realized net gain, or $0.04 per share, on account of a net gain on FFAs and includes a loss on a payment of $1.3 million, or $0.04 per share, made to the tax authority of Paraguay in full and final settlement of a claim pertaining to years 2002 to 2004. Excluding the effect of these items, the adjusted net loss for the third quarter of 2010 was $2.5 million or $0.08 per share.
