Operating IncomeThe Company’s Gross Voyage Profit, which represents the operating results of its five reporting segments, was $10.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2011 compared to $10.4 million in the 2010 three month period. While total results were comparable, individual segment results varied. The U.S. Flag Time Charter Gross Voyage Profit was approximately $3.5 million lower in the 2011 fourth quarter in comparison to the 2010 fourth quarter results. This was primarily driven by reduced supplemental cargo volumes and higher operating cost on the Pure Car Truck Carriers (“PCTC”). The International Flag Time Charter segment reported improved results from Dry Bulk operations partially offset by a drop in the Indonesian contract rates. The Company’s Contract of Affreightment and Rail Ferry segments reported improved results due to increased tonnage carried during the quarter. The Other segment, which consists of supporting ancillary services, improved slightly in the fourth quarter of 2011 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010. Administrative and general expenses during the fourth quarter of 2011 were at comparable 2010 levels.
