Second quarter events:

As previously announced, the Gas Kalogeros was delivered to her new owners on May 4 th, 2012. The vessel was sold at a small profit.

The Company took delivery from the yard of the 7,500 cbm LPG carrier, Gas Esco, as expected in June 2012. With the delivery of the Gas Esco, the Company's newbuilding program has been completed and there are no remaining capital expenditure requirements.

The time charter for the 5,018 cbm, built 2011, LPG carrier, Gas Cerberus has been extended for one year until July 2013.

CEO Harry Vafias commented

"We have seen considerable improvement in our bottom line as compared to the same period last year, as a result of the strengthening of the LPG market and our chartering strategy. Even though we may expect some typical seasonal weakness during the summer months, we are confident that the fundamentals in our core segment point to further market improvements in the future. With an improved cash position, we are still evaluating strategic opportunities to grow and renew our fleet and increase our market share."
