Nikolas Tsakos

Yes. Good morning. Thank you for attending our half year and second quarter call. We have been discussing since the last quarter that we could foresee the measures we have taken in the company on the chartering and operational side are turning the curve towards a better performance. We are glad to announce a better performance. However, a loss is never gratifying. So we are looking forward to going back to our continuous profitability trick, as we speak.

We believe that we are taking the internal measures, the cost controls, the correct allocation of vessels in the right parts of the world where demand is stronger, we’re taking measures to enhance the company’s growth, looking at new, much more profitable segments like the offshore through our shuttle tankers and the LNG which has been a very large contributor to our bottom line, to the betterment of our bottom line.
