Interest Rate Swaps
As of June 30, 2012, GasLog has entered into fifteen interest rate swap agreements for a total notional amount of $868.5 million. This is in relation to the outstanding indebtedness of $269.4 million and the new loan agreements of $1.13 billion in the aggregate that will be drawn by GasLog through its subsidiaries upon delivery of the respective ships. In total 62.1% of GasLog’s expected floating interest rate exposure has been hedged at a weighted average interest rate of approximately 4.3% (including margin) as of June 30, 2012. During the second quarter of 2012, GasLog recognized a loss of $5.3 million on interest rate swaps, primarily attributable to a $4.1 million loss from the mark-to-market valuation of six interest rate swaps agreements signed in 2012 which do not qualify for hedge accounting and a $1.2 million loss recognized at the inception of three interest rate swaps signed in the second quarter of 2012 and designated as cash flow hedging instruments.
