Summary Consolidated Financial and Other Data (Unaudited)

The Company's markets include its physical supply operations in the United Arab Emirates, Gibraltar, Jamaica, Singapore, Northern Europe, Vancouver, Trinidad and Tobago (Southern Caribbean), Tangiers (Morocco), Las Palmas, Tenerife, Barcelona, Algeciras, Hamburg, U.S.A. and Greece, where the Company conducts operations through its related company, Aegean Oil.

The ownership of storage facilities allows the Company to mitigate its risk of supply shortages. Generally, storage costs are included in the price of refined marine fuel quoted by local suppliers. The Company expects that the ownership of storage facilities will allow it to convert the variable costs of this storage fee mark-up per metric ton quoted by suppliers into fixed costs of operating its owned storage facilities, thus enabling the Company to spread larger sales volumes over a fixed cost base and to decrease its refined fuel costs.

Third Quarter 2015 Dividend Announcement

On November 19, 2015, the Company's Board of Directors declared a third quarter 2015 dividend of $0.02 per share payable on December 17, 2015 to shareholders of record as of December 3, 2015. The dividend amount was determined in accordance with the Company's dividend policy of paying cash dividends on a quarterly basis subject to factors including the requirements of Marshall Islands law, future earnings, capital requirements, financial condition, future prospects and such other factors as are determined by the Company's Board of Directors.
