Our announcements of earnings forecasts, plans, strategy, etc, which are not historical facts, are made based on the information currently available and certain assumptions. Consequently, please be advised that the actual performance could vary significantly from the prospects. Some of the factors that could influence actual performance are significant changes in the shipping markets, and fluctuation of currency exchange rates, interest rates, and bunker oil prices.
