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."
