Iraklis Sbarounis

Good morning, everyone. This is Iraklis. Thank you for participating in Ocean Rig’s second quarter earnings conference call. I am starting with Slide 3, our income statement.

Our adjustment of the income statement is $6.4 million, associated with the statutory periodic surveys of the Ocean Rig Mykonos, Ocean Rig Skyros and Leiv Eiriksson. For everyone’s benefit, we wish to remind our investors that Ocean Rig’s accounting policy is to expense SPS costs as they occur as opposed to capitalizing and deferring them.
