NOTE 19 – FINANCIAL MARKET RISK
             
The company's operations expose the company for currency risk and interest risk, whilst the company only have a very limited exposure to credit risk and market risk.
CURRENCY RISK AND INTEREST RISK
Investment in ship owning companies
The operations of the company's investments in ship owning companies accounted for according to the equity method are mainly USD based. Most of the revenues are in USD. The majority of the income is in USD. Furthermore, the market value of the ships, and thus most of the assets, are priced in USD. Most of the debts are also in USD. This leads to foreign exchange exposure being limited.

Most of the company's debt is share of the debt in the ship owning companies accounted for according to the equity method. This is denominated in USD and is priced by floating LIBOR interest. All loans are at floating interest rates. The company has an acceptable equity ratio. This together with an active handling of interest rate exposure, leads to the risk of any changes in the interest rate level being limited for the company.
