Third quarter results reflect a drop in shipping pricing, as expected. Shipping rates have fallen sharply in the last few quarters. Although management took some steps to lock in pricing this summer, it should be pointed out that the bulk of its fleet is on spot or indexed rates. We lowered our estimates in October to reflect weakening industry fundamentals, so weaker results were largely anticipated.
Slightly better-than-expected results reflect increased operating days. Seanergy brought several vessels into dry dock for repairs and upgrades in previous quarters. As a result, it was able to keep its ships active in the most recent quarter. The result was an increase in operating days above our expectations leading to higher-than-expected revenues.
