GasLog Ltd. Reports Financial Results For The Quarter Ended June 30, 2012


GasLog believes the strong fundamentals of the LNG industry will provide significant growth opportunities for GasLog’s high quality LNG shipping operations. Focus in the near term will be on delivering the growth of the business, through the on-time delivery of the newbuilding fleet while ensuring full utilization of the existing ships. GasLog expects that its strategy of leveraging its established platform and customer relationships will aid in qualification for charter possibilities for the two uncommitted newbuildings and the options it holds for two additional newbuildings. GasLog’s experience and track record may also allow GasLog to explore possibilities for industry consolidation of new entrants and to be flexible to adjust to market developments.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

EBITDA represents earnings before interest income and expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA before loss on interest rate swaps and foreign exchange differences. Adjusted Profit/(loss) and Adjusted EPS represent earnings and earnings per share, respectively, before loss on interest rate swaps and foreign exchange differences. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Profit/(loss) and Adjusted EPS, which are non-GAAP financial measures, are used as supplemental financial measures by management and external users of financial statements, such as investors, to assess our financial and operating performance. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures assist our management and investors by increasing the comparability of our performance from period to period. We believe that including EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Profit/(loss) and Adjusted EPS assists our management and investors in (i) understanding and analyzing the results of our operating and business performance, (ii) selecting between investing in us and other investment alternatives and (iii) monitoring our ongoing financial and operational strength in assessing whether to continue to hold our common shares. This increased comparability is achieved by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods of, in the case of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and, and in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Profit/(loss) and Adjusted EPS, loss on interest rate swaps and foreign exchange differences, which items are affected by various and possibly changing financing methods, capital structure and historical cost basis and which items may significantly affect results of operations between periods.
