Company’s equity investment in Scorpio Tankers Inc.;

a write?down of assets held for sale of approximately $5.2 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, related to the classification of two Ultramax

the write?off of deferred financing costs of approximately $2.7 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, related to the refinancing of existing debt.

For the same period in 2018, the Company’s GAAP net income was $0.8 million, or $0.01 per diluted share.
