G. Shivakumar, chief financial officer & executive director, The Great Eastern Shipping Company, during the earnings call, said, “Coming to the financial results for the first quarter of FY 2021, we had an extremely profitable quarter. In fact, the most profitable quarter since the September 2008 quarter, which was just before the start of the global financial crisis. This quarter was, of course, helped by huge turmoil around the pandemic and which resulted in tanker rates spiking to levels not seen before, at least not in the last 20 years. And therefore, very strong earnings on the tankers.”
