(1) Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net loss and Adjusted loss per share are not recognized measurements under GAAP. Refer to a subsequent section of the Press Release for the definitions and reconciliation of these measurements to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of Euroseas commented: "During the third quarter of 2012, the containership market continued being depressed with no boost in charter rates during the usual holiday-targeted seasonal uptick during September and October. Drybulk rates continued their downward slide during the quarter as well. While most of our containerships are chartered at the presently low market levels, our drybulk vessels benefit from previously entered charter contracts with higher rates well in 2013.

"Looking forward, we expect to continue facing a challenging rate environment as weaker world economic growth is projected for 2013 alongside with significant fleet supply growth. This difficult operating environment comes along with opportunities to invest in vessels at very attractive valuations. We believe that our strong balance sheet and low leverage will allow us to not only manage the challenging year ahead but be in position to capitalize on investment opportunities as they appear to renew and expand our fleet. In this context, our Board decided to declare a quarterly dividend of $0.015 per share which represents an annual yield of about 5.4% on the basis of our stock price on November 6, 2012."

Tasos Aslidis, Chief Financial Officer of Euroseas commented: "The results of the third quarter of 2012 reflect the continued depressed state of the containership market while, at the same time, our overall results benefited from above market charter rates of our drybulk fleet. Overall, lower revenues during the third quarter of 2012 partly offset by lower drydocking expenses and lower derivative losses during the quarter as compared to the third quarter of 2011 resulted in a $0.8 million loss during the third quarter of 2012 compared to a $0.6 million net income during the third quarter of 2011.

"Total daily vessel operating expenses, including management fees, general and administrative expenses but excluding drydocking costs, registered a decrease of about 1.4% during the third quarter of 2012 compared to the same quarter of last year and a decrease of about 0.2% for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 over the same period of 2011. Drydocking expenses expressed on a per vessel per day basis were lower by 71.6% in the nine month period of 2012 and 36.9% lower for the third quarter of 2012, respectively, as compared to the same periods in 2011. As always, we want to emphasize that cost control remains a key component of our strategy.

"As of September 30, 2012, our outstanding debt was $65.0 million versus restricted and unrestricted cash of about $45.4 million. As of the same date, our scheduled debt repayments over the next 12 months amounted to about $16 million, a number low enough to provide us with significant operational cash flow comfort. All our debt covenants were satisfied as of September 30, 2012."

Third Quarter 2012 Results:
For the third quarter of 2012, the Company reported total net revenues of $13.4 million representing a 17.5% decrease over total net revenues of $16.2 million during the third quarter of 2011. The Company reported a net loss for the period of $0.8 million as compared to net income of $0.6 million for the third quarter of 2011. The results for the third quarter of 2012 include a $0.2 million net unrealized gain on derivatives and a $0.4 million realized loss on derivatives as compared to $1.0 million net unrealized loss on derivatives and trading securities and $0.1 million realized loss on derivatives for the same period of 2011.

Depreciation expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $4.3 million, compared to the $4.6 million of the same period of 2011. On average, 15.00 vessels were owned and operated during the third quarter of 2012 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $10,246 per day compared to 16.00 vessels in the same period of 2011 earning on average $11,633 per day.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2012 was $4.0 million, a 39.9% decrease from $6.7 million achieved during the third quarter of 2011. Basic and diluted loss per share for the third quarter of 2012 was $0.02, calculated on 45,210,705 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding, compared to $0.02 earnings per share for the third quarter of 2011, calculated on 31,825,313 basic and 31,880,335 diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding.

Excluding the effect on the loss for the quarter of the unrealized gain on derivatives and the realized loss on derivatives, the adjusted loss per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 would have been $0.01 per share basic and diluted compared to earnings of $0.05 per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Usually, security analysts do not include the above items in their published estimates of earnings per share.

First Nine Months 2012 Results:
For the first nine months of 2012, the Company reported total net revenues of $40.1 million representing a 12.9% decrease over total net revenues of $46.0 million during the first nine months of 2011. The Company reported a net loss for the period of $11.2 million as compared to net income of $0.0 million for the first nine months of 2011. The results for the first nine months of 2012 include a $0.7 million unrealized gain on derivatives and realized gain on trading securities, a $1.3 million realized loss on derivatives and a $8.6 million loss on sale of vessel as compared to a $1.1 million unrealized loss on derivatives and trading securities, a $0.6 million net realized loss on derivatives and $1.3 million amortization of time charters acquired, for the same period of 2011.

Depreciation expenses for the first nine months of 2012 were $13.1 million compared to $13.8 million during the same period of 2011. On average, 15.28 vessels were owned and operated during the first nine months of 2012 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $10,373 per day compared to 16.00 vessels in the same period of 2011 earning on average $11,356 per day.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2012 was $12.3 million, a 20.0% decrease from $15.4 million achieved during the first nine months of 2011. Please see below for Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation to net income/(loss) and cash flow provided by operating activities.

Basic and diluted net loss per share for the first nine months of 2012 were $0.30, calculated on 36,806,388 weighted average number of shares outstanding basic and diluted, respectively, compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.00 for the first nine months of 2011, calculated on 31,769,312 and 31,792,558 weighted average number of shares outstanding basic and diluted, respectively.

Excluding the effect on the loss for the first nine months of 2012 of the unrealized gain on derivatives, realized gain on trading securities and realized loss on derivatives and the loss on sale of vessel, the adjusted loss per share for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012 would have been $0.05 per share basic and diluted compared to earnings of $0.01 per share basic and diluted for the same period in 2011. Usually, security analysts do not include the above items in their published estimates of earnings per share.

(1) Average number of vessels is the number of vessels that constituted our fleet for the relevant period, as measured by the sum of the number of calendar days each vessel was a part of our fleet during the period divided by the number of calendar days in that period.

(2) Calendar days. We define calendar days as the total number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet was in our possession including off-hire days associated with major repairs, drydockings or special or intermediate surveys or days of vessels in lay-up. Calendar days are an indicator of the size of our fleet over a period and affect both the amount of revenues and the amount of expenses that we record during that period.

(3) The scheduled off-hire days including vessels laid-up are days associated with scheduled repairs, drydockings or special or intermediate surveys or days of vessels in lay-up. We use available days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels were available to generate revenues.

(4) Available days. We define available days as the total number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet was in our possession net of scheduled off-hire days including days of vessels laid-up.

(5) Commercial off-hire days. We define commercial off-hire days as days waiting to find employment.

(6) Operational off-hire days. We define operational off-hire days as days associated with unscheduled repairs or other off-hire time related to the operation of the vessels.

(7) Voyage days. We define voyage days as the total number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet was in our possession net of commercial and operational off-hire days. We use voyage days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels actually generate revenues.

(8) Fleet utilization. We calculate fleet utilization by dividing the number of our voyage days during a period by the number of our available days during that period. We use fleet utilization to measure a company's efficiency in finding suitable employment for its vessels and minimizing the amount of days that its vessels are off-hire for reasons such as unscheduled repairs or days waiting to find employment.

(9) Fleet utilization, commercial. We calculate commercial fleet utilization by dividing our available days net of commercial off-hire days during a period by our available days during that period.

(10) Fleet utilization, operational. We calculate operational fleet utilization by dividing our available days net of operational off-hire days during a period by our available days during that period.

(11) Time charter equivalent, or TCE, is a measure of the average daily revenue performance of a vessel on a per voyage basis. Our method of calculating TCE is consistent with industry standards and is determined by dividing revenue generated from voyage charters net of voyage expenses by voyage days for the relevant time period. Voyage expenses primarily consist of port, canal and fuel costs that are unique to a particular voyage, which would otherwise be paid by the charterer under a time charter contract, as well as commissions. TCE is a standard shipping industry performance measure used primarily to compare period-to-period changes in a shipping company's performance despite changes in the mix of charter types (i.e., spot voyage charters, time charters and bareboat charters) under which the vessels may be employed between the periods.

(12) Daily vessel operating expenses, which includes crew costs, provisions, deck and engine stores, lubricating oil, insurance, maintenance and repairs and management fees are calculated by dividing vessel operating expenses by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period. Drydocking expenses are reported separately.

(13) Daily general and administrative expense is calculated by dividing general and administrative expense by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period.

(14) Total vessel operating expenses, or TVOE, is a measure of our total expenses associated with operating our vessels. TVOE is the sum of vessel operating expenses excluding drydocking expenses and general and administrative expenses. Daily TVOE is calculated by dividing TVOE by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period.

(15) Drydocking expenses, which include expenses during drydockings that would have been capitalized and amortized under the deferral method divided by the fleet calendar days for the relevant period. Drydocking expenses could vary substantially from period to period depending on how many vessels underwent drydocking during the period.

Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation:
Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted EBITDA to represent net earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, gain / loss in derivatives, loss on sale of vessel and amortization of deferred revenues from above or below market time charters acquired. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or cash flow from operations, as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is included herein because it is a basis upon which we assess our financial performance and liquidity position and because we believe that it presents useful information to investors regarding a company's ability to service and/or incur indebtedness. The Company's definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be the same as that used by other companies in the shipping or other industries.

Adjusted Net Income/(loss) and Adjusted Net Income /(loss) per share Reconciliation:
Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted Net Income/(loss) to represent net earnings before gain / loss in derivatives, amortization of deferred revenues from above or below market time charters acquired, unrealized gain/loss on trading securities, and loss on sale of vessel. Adjusted Net Income/(loss) and Adjusted Net Income /(loss) per share is included herein because we believe it assists our management and investors by increasing the comparability of the Company's fundamental performance from period to period by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods of gain / loss in derivatives, amortization of deferred revenues from above or below market time charters acquired and unrealized loss on trading securities, which items may significantly affect results of operations between periods.

Adjusted Net Income/(loss) and Adjusted Net Income/(loss) per share do not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income/(loss) or earnings/(loss) per share, as determined by U.S. GAAP, The Company's definition of Adjusted Net Income/(loss) and Adjusted Net Income /(loss) per share may not be the same as that used by other companies in the shipping or other industries.
