Interest expense and finance costs, which include loan interest, capital lease interest and amortization of deferred financing fees, were $1.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, an increase of $0.4 million, or 40% from $1.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The variance was driven by an increase in our average debt balance due to the delivery of two vessels (the Ardmore Seavaliant and Ardmore Seaventure), additional interest costs associated with the capital lease facility for the Ardmore Calypso and Ardmore Capella executed in April 2013 and a write-off of $0.2 million of deferred financing fees upon the repayment of senior debt in connection with the capital lease. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in interest costs associated with our revolving credit facility and an increase in the amount of capitalized interest.
