Turning to slide number 5, we’d like to point out in this slide that since reinstituting the dividend in the second quarter of 2009, we have rewarded shareholders with 8 consecutive dividends. Our dividend represent a meaningful yield which currently is the highest within the dry bulk universe, 8.7% on an annualized basis calculated as of yesterday’s close.As you can see on the graph, only five out of 11 dry bulk peers distributed dividends to their shareholders, with Star Bulk having currently the highest dividend. I would like to remind our investors that Star Bulk is one of the few companies in the dry bulk industry that has paid dividends for 12 out of the 14 quarters since inception three years ago.
