    (1)       The Headline Loss for the year ended December 31, 2017 includes an adjustment of US$21,765,000 for impairment loss
              on joint venture’s ships in the Final Results that was not included in the Abridged Results

              in the Abridged Results based on a headline loss of $(27,096,000) and 19,063,833 shares. In the Final Results, the
              headline loss per share and diluted headline loss per share for the year ended December 31, 2017 were calculated based
              on a headline loss of $(5,331,000), for the reason referred to in note 1 above, and 19,063,833 shares.
    (5)       There was no change in this item.
