Announcement no. 30 / 21 August 2012 Second quarter report 2012 6 of 22

Bulk Division

The bulk market experienced positive freight rate movements in April 2012 as a result of the South American grain season, which was replaced by a negative market sentiment due to the macroeconomic uncertainty and events like the Indonesian commodity export ban.

In the Pacific spot market, the Cape market continued its dismal performance as a result of continued tonnage inflow, high iron ore prices and high stock levels in the Chinese ports with freight rates dropping to USD/day 3-4,000. Freight rates in the Panamax segment were about USD/day 7-10,000 throughout the period. The reduced trade volumes from the Indonesian export ban especially affected the Handymax segment where freight rates temporarily dropped to USD/day 3-4,000 and later increased to USD/day 8-9,000.
