We are lowering our assumed TCE shipping rate for non-fixed vessels. We are lowering third-quarter TCE rates to $20,000/day from $23,000/day to reflect weaker shipping rates in the quarter. The impact on EuroDry cash flow and earnings is somewhat muted relative to other shipping companies given fixed rates for the bulk of its fleet. Nevertheless, we are adjusting downward our estimates to reflect the impact on ships tied to market prices.
Revenues, EBITDA and EPS estimate all come down slightly. Our new third quarter and 2022 revenues estimates are $25.4 million and $96.3 million, down from $26.1 million and $98.4 million.
