Aristides J. Pittas

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and thank you all for joining us today for our scheduled conference call. Together with me is Tasos Aslidis, our Chief Financial Officer. The purpose of today's call is to discuss our financial results for the three-month period ended September 30, 2019.

As a reminder, I would like to mention that on May 30, 2018 the company spun off its drybulk fleet into EuroDry, a separate publicly listed company also listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market. Shareholders of Euroseas received one EuroDry share for every five shares of Euroseas they held. As a result of the spin-off, Euroseas has become a pure containership company and the only publicly listed company concentrating on the feeder and intermediate containership sector. The results below refer to Euroseas Ltd. continuing operations, excluding the contribution of vessels spun off into EuroDry Ltd. in May 2018. The historical comparative periods have been adjusted accordingly.

Now please turn to Slide 3 to see our income statement highlights. For the third quarter of 2019, total net revenues were $10.3 million. Net loss was $0.2 million. Adjusted net loss attributable to common shareholders was $0.5 million, or $0.02 loss per share, basic and diluted, after a $0.2 million dividend on Series B Preferred Shares and a $0.1 million 04 05 paper loss due to the below-market charters of the four vessels acquired during the quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $1.6 million. Please turn to Slide 4 for our chartering and operational highlights. The highlight of the quarter was the delivery of the previously announced four vessels agreed to be acquired in Q4. Specifically, we took delivery between the 2nd and 7th of August of the following ships. And I note here, that there is a small error in the presentation, noting all the ships as being of the same
