  • Reported TCE rates for Capesize and Panamax/Ultramax vessels of $38,142 per day and $24,733 per day, respectively, in the third quarter of 2021. Reported TCE rate for the whole fleet of $32,262 per day.

    • approximately $41,900 per day contracted for 83% of the available days for Capesize vessels and $27,300 per day contracted for 87% of the available days for Panamax vessels for the fourth quarter of 2021; and
    • approximately $33,200 per day contracted for 30% of the available days for Capesize vessels and $24,150 per day contracted for 36% of the available days for Panamax vessels for the first quarter of 2022.
  • Announced a cash dividend of $0.85 per share in respect of the third quarter of 2021.

Ulrik Andersen, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

"Golden Ocean has maintained significant exposure to the strong freight rate environment throughout the year, resulting in significant cash flow generation. In keeping with the Company's long-standing policy, I am pleased that we are in the position to return value to our shareholders through dividend payments, which have amounted to $321 million thus far in 2021, including the Q3 distribution. We have already contracted more than 30% of our open days for Q1 2022, mitigating risk and ensuring cash generation into next year. The combination of expected global demand growth, modest fleet growth and inefficiencies we believe will persist in the coming years creates a powerful dynamic for Golden Ocean. Based on our long-term market outlook and the successful execution of our fleet growth and renewal program, which has positioned the Company as the industry leader in the large size dry bulk segments, we expect to continue to deliver strong operating performance to the benefit of all stakeholders."

Wholesale has been a very low-profit business in Finland and has not been a significant part of the group's strategy and does not support our other activities in Finland. The fresh fish business of the group will in future rely mostly on own farmed fish. The wholesale of salmon in Baltics will be continued from our Saaremaa factory from the beginning of next year. The Kokkola plant has been deeply unprofitable in recent years and the main reason why the Finnish unit's financial results have been negative. The closure of
