Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Results

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $8.3 million, an increase of $1.3 million, or 18.6%, from $7.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. Product tanker revenue was $5.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, an increase of $2.1 million, or 61.6%, from $3.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The increase primarily relates to additional revenue attributable to the Ardmore Seavaliant and Ardmore Seaventure, which were delivered to us on February 27, 2013 and June 7, 2013, respectively. Chemical tanker revenue on owned vessels was $2.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to $2.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. Ardmore previously chartered-in two chemical tankers, the Hellespont Crusader and the Hellespont Commander, commencing on May 12, 2011 and July 17, 2011, respectively. These vessels were redelivered to the owner on May 29, 2012 and June 23, 2012. These chartered-in vessels contributed $0 to revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and contributed $0.8 million to revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2012.

Commissions and voyage related costs were $0.15 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, a decrease of $0.02 million, or 12%, from $0.17 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012.
