We announced earnings per share of $0.22 for the quarter and $0.41 for the year. These include some non-recurring and non-cash items related to the swaps and the fair values of our swaps and foreign exchange and book losses on the sales of our vessels in the second quarter.Excluding these our fourth quarter earnings per share was $0.17 and full year were $0.66 compared to $0.41 last year. I believe that we have started seeing the improvement in the LPG market filtering down to our earnings. This is a very difficult environment for shipping companies and few are reporting earnings at all and as a result of our focus on the LPG market we continue to operate profitably and have laid solid foundations for the company, avoiding any difficult financial position that so many other shipping companies are already in.
