Winland Ocean Shipping Corp. Announces 3rd Quarter 2011 Earnings Report; Net Income Bounced Back to $3 Million, Rose 291% and 84% Compared with Prior Quarter and Same Period Last Year, Respectively

Nov 14, 2011, 18:00 ET from Winland Ocean Shipping Corp.

HONG KONG, Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Winland Ocean Shipping Corp. (OTCBB: WLOL), a global shipping Company, today announced its financial results for the third quarter of 2011.

The Company reported the 3rd quarter net income increased 291% to $3.0 million, from $0.77 million in prior quarter this year, versus, the average Baltic Dry Index only increased 10% for the comparable periods.

Compared with the same period last year, net income increased 84% from $1.66 million; whereas, the average Baltic Dry Index decreased 36% for the comparable periods.

"We are pleasant we have maintained a profit for the first three quarters this year," said Ms. Xue Ying, CEO. "The global shipping industry is still full of volatility and challenges. The majority of China's state-owned shipping companies, including COSCO and China Shipping, have suffered huge losses. The average Baltic Dry Index for the first three quarters this year dropped 50% from the same period last year, which evidenced the global shipping industry is experiencing a most difficult time." She continued, "We are glad we have withstood the difficulties and challenges in the depressed market and we are confident we will continue to maintain our growing pace."

"Our profitable performance for the 3rd quarter was mainly contributed by significant gains from the disposition of three old vessels," added Mr. Li Honglin, President. "In addition, two new 57,000 ton dry bulk carriers placed in service in the first half of this year have contributed to the profit. It evidences our fleet optimization strategy has made steady progress, and lays up a solid foundation for further optimizing our fleet structure."
