Revenues improve with the addition of vessels and higher shipping rates. EuroDry took possession of three ships during the quarter and put them into service, resulting in additional operating days. The average shipping rate of $14.570 rose 20% quarter over quarter. EuroDry continues to be the most sensitive to rate changes of all the shipping companies we follow. 

Expenses went up with more ships, but costs per operating day were flat. Vessel operating and depreciation costs rose with an increase in voyage days. Vessel operating costs per voyage day were $5,421 in the most recent quarter versus $5,343 in the previous quarter and $5,366 in the same period last year. Financing costs rose with the issuance of $32.5 million to finance the acquisition of vessels.
