Our next with question from Randy comes Giveans Jefferies.

Randy Giveans

the likely your well So yes, you I at which, benchmarks, I obviously, appreciate release. guidance, rate above X-year quarter-to-date high, a as mentioned, in think you press said

break you quarter that's then, is numbers can operations first of the is your numbers? trading and the Ultramax kind increasing something And a of Supramax? lower So reflection state about market Or also, unique operations? in might of your second result and this purely just quarter normal out by there maybe in quarter that this somehow the

Gary Vogel

Thanks for that.

So take let me it.

and all, gives vessels break arbitrage of fleet of is, is we one between between out don't Supramax. And kind if First cargoes. we think we Ultramax homogeneous trade picture as two. the volatility the and our And that from wrong it there's the reason

our in in ships So deck, out back ships over the you the terms of a to it provide can deliveries break we've size overall be earnings Ultramaxes. in appendix of recent now With our forma XX% point actually it's is. our where for just different gotten what relative pro earnings fleet and will acquisitions, to guide of yourself values of the so a we our

ago, for Supramax So milestone huge player. that's XXX% that were us, X given we years a

is there's going volatility. quarter, to always answer this of the terms In be

and evolve trades, to let's say, the say, Our balance don't today backhaul was and our such $XX,XXX, of And $X,XXX $XX,XXX. market Brazil trade backhaul $X,XXX, going is between typically day a of, from, that be outbound back. a that, to Far even East ships let's there's considerable because

front because this I are -- based so front that said the that, -- of on the and is get how guidance backhaul quarter not business. in you amount predominant many on tell can can haul. of our numbers a And depending is you that, Having haul volatility ships not

the capture this more methodology. fleet similar say a I and the would been So to it about quarter. able but majority upturn we these moment, been the this our having remains hasn't balance by Atlantic market definitely ships to of out. business is done where in But the been helpful, has in for entered At we've the our sending all it,

your Another, whatever $XX undrawn undrawn was, million -- your million $XX in availability. it in

obviously quarters, coming amort, trading, should to in the pretty flow debt here cash be shares positive You manageable close NAV.

keeping So past. being stay all rates just revolver down cash Is that relatively your on your you quarters. in assuming balance the free the in paid Repaying this coming said, cash, what then it for plans here are the firm on the sheet? debt, and

kind going plethora of balance How are you options? to Secondhand acquisitions? of repurchases? Some these

Gary Vogel

we rates. days into and appreciate appreciate have early just right, having we're I the ships, quarter. and question, as you to in I Well, pointed the a But that it's ability question, situation given ask you that, where out, X acquired the the said

to we'd think I on get ships. these So deliveries like

mentioned, of Frank the all that. market, on and looking acquisitions potentially how at things opportunities the debt, what we're will some in given debt or As things paying be then like putting intention and play down see the out

BTIG. comes Lewis And your with Greg from next question

Gregory Lewis

little much expected. of point and market of There's maintaining view, few -- Gary, At I of our and wanted curve. your the comments on next we to than the flexibility. least, in a stronger the the helped some for bit touch us, curve you strengths made that's quarters around has the from been

to today, maintain to not the to for to $XX,XXX, in talk keys sure realizing, it's of slow but that, half the just around the helpful? of over While get vessels year, say, think would the a how can take you that do the we as coverage the really operators, why of to Should $XX,XXX, other chow. I your advantage turn back that, you the not I lock not curve company and little how just maybe derivatives market, I as kind exposure think, you about understand want bit potential nothing be it's any in high color and still of in, about the think about around but strengths

Gary Vogel

all, Yes, is I of the first absolutely. mean, answer yes.

call traded us to the the mentioned and take I we that expect opportunities fact that of we can as this it, advantage morning. You strip, is and over $XX,XXX, trading

certain So we've number want a downside get to we if on of outperform something Consider put as given we goal communicated and locking for defensive protection, hedges, that of locking until player, spot index. But is a And COVID. we cash year similarly, as the flows. a last spot our substantial in uncertainty said, done flow, further around notice. where terms we said reasons, that us to we point to the significant in cash communicate in we've

volatility not of a as though assured, that, well. the managing at take we that way fleet strength and think going can such So then to rest point, are say even this advantage we we're in we

Gregory Lewis

and would is of spreads letting because press comments, used, Frank's vessels? think any mentioned we're I I I it's same be guess, some release ideal distances to in we the is about off whether aren't you that than in sulfur I about Okay. questions. -- scrubbers question scrubber -- the way as mean fleet between of And bullish or the markets touched run we're others because a just around for mean, ask of -- chance scrubbers different around up -- kind asked in or something there high on better well certain this on where way, of guess, you the another it. I'll outlook it way. Atlantic to i.e., I are night, scrubber low be fuel. is sulfur then and scrubbers, utilization, last better, have bottom the Great. just in a Pacific, where utilization And think couple think the there it's better location you there is vessels just different Great. markets there of a ports one for kind the the whether it's

Gary Vogel

Yes. Absolutely.

discount The So can part, ports because I consumption allow be our low scrubbers is, the to vessels for first have when consumption of import. thing sea. at most you would used is majority do what vast

And total how so, percentage you the of back days at really is of spend pulling to can many look to days it voyage the at as the compared a or sea. year sea way

middle time load ship, typically Atlantic, which the in of spending gaining are is days more Because So put ships you Pacific to to a and cross actually discharge, better load the and Pacific sea, at things trading scrubbers. off to and is discharge better sea, with scrubbers being at right? Atlantic for days number that benefit all equal, it the

So doing we tend be scrubbers find our to trades. long-haul those ships with
