Luxembourg, November 11th, 2015 â€“ The Board of Directors of dâ€™Amico International Shipping S.A. (Borsa Italiana: DIS) (the Company, dâ€™Amico International Shipping or the Group), a leading international marine transportation company operating in the product tanker market, today discussed and approved the third quarter 2015 financial results.
Marco Fiori, Chief Executive Officer of dâ€™Amico International Shipping S.A. commented:
â€˜DIS has achieved one of its best quarterly results. The Product tanker rates are still gradually improving, leading to a very positive outlook for the current year, leading me to be very confident about the perspectives of the product tanker industry in the medium and long term driven by factors such as the US ever growing role as a net exporter of products and the boosted refining capacity in the Middle and Far East which will further expand the tonne/mile demand. We have secured already a good percentage of DIS future revenues at advantegeous rates, expanding our fleet, allowing us to be ready to take the maximum advantage of what we think it will be a strong market. These additions brought DIS total fleet to more than 50 operated vessels, placing the Company amongst the top players of the industry.â€™
Giovanni Barberis, Chief Financial Officer of dâ€™Amico International Shipping and of dâ€™Amico Group commented:
Thanks to a favorable market and an extremely efficient structure, on one hand we have achieved significant results in just one year, as doubling the EBITDA margin and a considerable net profit, on the other hand, notwithstanding a huge investment plan of over USD 750 million, the ratio Equity / Debt remains balanced, highlighting the ability of the Company to generate significant operating cash flows.
