Golar LNG's CEO Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Going down to the time charter equivalent rates, as you can see there, there is an increase of approximately 8% from Q1 of 90,464 a day to Q2 level of 97,118 a day. The utilization is slightly down from Q1 to Q2 as a result of idle time for Hilli and the Gandria. Also as announced, we increased our dividend by $0.05 from $0.35 in Q1 to $0.40 in Q2 representing approximately 14% increase.

Going over the page to the liability side of our balance sheet, one point to note there really just long-term a lot of numbers are pretty stable and really the main decrease there is a result of repayments during the quarter. At the bottomline of the presentation page, we have a fixed interest debt of approximately 83% and we’re averaging approximately 3.15% in weighted average interest.
