Dividend Announcements

This was the Company's fifth consecutive quarterly dividend since it commenced trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

Mr. Gregory Zikos, Chief Financial Officer of Costamare Inc., commented:

"During the fourth quarter and the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company delivered positive results.

"In 2011, we executed our growth plans investing, at an opportune time, in excess of $ 1 billion in newbuilding and secondhand ships. Debt funding for our capital commitments has been arranged in order to minimize financing risk.

"We have been selective in our investments; we remain returns-oriented and we do not seek growth at unjustified prices by assuming excessive market risk.

"Consistent with our progressive dividend policy, we already increased our dividend once since going public, and our goal remains to increase dividend payments over time, consistent with our dividend policy.

"Going forward, our contracted cash flows combined with our low leverage, put us in a position to execute quickly, should attractive opportunities arise in a down market or remain firm and benefit from the upside of a healthy market environment."

(1) Accrued charter revenue represents the difference between cash received during the period and revenue recognized on a straight-line basis.
(2) Voyage revenue adjusted on a cash basis represents Voyage revenue after cash changes in "Accrued charter revenue" deriving from escalating charter rates under which certain of our vessels operate. However, Voyage revenue adjusted on a cash basis is not a recognized measurement under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or "GAAP." We believe that the presentation of Voyage revenue adjusted on a cash basis is useful to investors because it presents the charter revenue for the relevant period based on the then current daily charter rates. The increases or decreases in daily charter rates under our charter party agreements are described in the notes to the "Fleet List" below.
(3) Adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures. Refer to the reconciliation of net income to adjusted net income and net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA below.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures used in managing the business may provide users of these financial measures additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures can provide additional meaningful reflection of underlying trends of the business because they provide a comparison of historical information that excludes certain items that impact the overall comparability. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating the Company's performance. Tables below set out supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the three-month and the years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures include (i) Voyage revenue adjusted on a cash basis (reconciled above), (ii) Adjusted Net Income, (iii) Adjusted earnings per share, (iv) EBITDA and (v) Adjusted EBITDA.

Weighted average number of shares 49,113,425 60,300,000 55,384,783 60,300,000

Adjusted Net income and Adjusted Earnings per Share represent net income before gain/(loss) on sale of vessels, non-cash changes in fair value of derivatives, non-cash changes in "Accrued charter revenue" deriving from escalating charter rates under which certain of our vessels operate and the cash of partial purchases of consumable shares for newly acquired vessels. "Accrued charter revenue" is attributed to the time difference between the revenue recognition and the cash collection. However, Adjusted Net income and Adjusted Earnings per Share are not recognized measurements under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or "GAAP." We believe that the presentation of Adjusted Net income and Adjusted Earnings per Share are useful to investors because they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. We also believe that Adjusted Net income and Adjusted Earnings per Share are useful in evaluating our ability to service additional debt and make capital expenditures. In addition, we believe that Adjusted Net income and Adjusted Earnings per Share are useful in evaluating our operating performance and liquidity position compared to that of other companies in our industry because the calculation of Adjusted Net income and Adjusted Earnings per Share generally eliminates the effects of the accounting effects of capital expenditures and acquisitions, certain hedging instruments and other accounting treatments, items which may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance and liquidity. In evaluating Adjusted Net income and Adjusted Earnings per Share, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. Our presentation of Adjusted Net income and Adjusted Earnings per Share should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.

Adjusted EBITDA $ 223,609 $ 274,669 $ 56,228 $ 74,671

EBITDA represents net income before interest and finance costs, interest income, depreciation and amortization of deferred dry-docking & special survey costs. Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before interest and finance costs, interest income, depreciation, amortization of deferred dry-docking & special survey costs, gain/(loss) on sale of vessels, non-cash changes in fair value of derivatives, non-cash changes in "Accrued charter revenue" deriving from escalating charter rates under which certain of our vessels operate and the cash of partial purchases of consumable shares for newly acquired vessels. "Accrued charter revenue" is attributed to the time difference between the revenue recognition and the cash collection. However, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized measurements under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or "GAAP." We believe that the presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful to investors because they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. We also believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful in evaluating our ability to service additional debt and make capital expenditures. In addition, we believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful in evaluating our operating performance and liquidity position compared to that of other companies in our industry because the calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA generally eliminates the effects of financings, income taxes and the accounting effects of capital expenditures and acquisitions, items which may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance and liquidity. In evaluating EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. Our presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.

Note: Items to consider for comparability include gains and charges. Gains positively impacting net income are reflected as deductions to net income. Charges negatively impacting net income are reflected as increases to net income.

Results of Operations

Three-month period ended December 31, 2011 compared to the three-month period ended December 31, 2010

During the three-month periods ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, we had an average of 48.3 and 42.0 vessels, respectively, in our fleet. In the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, we accepted delivery of the secondhand vessel MSC Methoni with a TEU capacity of 6,724, and we sold three vessels, while the vessel Rena was determined to be a constructive total loss ("CTL") for insurance purposes in October 2011, with an aggregate TEU capacity of 8,922. In the three-month period ended December 31, 2010, we accepted delivery of the vessels Karmen and Rena with an aggregate TEU capacity of 6,702. In the three-month periods ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, our fleet ownership days totaled 4,446 and 3,864 days, respectively. Ownership days are the primary driver of voyage revenue and vessels operating expenses and represent the aggregate number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet is owned.

Voyage Revenue

Voyage revenue increased by 19.0%, or $16.3 million, to $102.0 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, from $85.7 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2010. This increase is mainly due to increased average number of vessels in our fleet during the three month period ended December 31, 2011 compared to the three month period ended December 31, 2010. Voyage revenues adjusted on a cash basis, increased by 25.8%, or $22.4 million, to $109.1 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, from $86.7 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2010. The increase is attributable to the increased ownership days of our fleet, as well as to the increased charter hire received in accordance with certain escalation clauses of our charters, during the three-month period ended December 31, 2011 compared to the three-month period ended December 31, 2010.

Voyage Expenses

Voyage expenses increased by 80.0%, or $0.4 million, to $0.9 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, from $0.5 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2010. The increase was primarily attributable to the third party commissions charged to us in the three-month period ended December 31, 2011 compared to the three-month period ended December 31, 2010.

Voyage Expenses - related parties

Voyage expenses - related parties in the amount of $0.8 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2011 and in the amount of $0.4 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2010 represent fees of 0.75% on voyage revenues charged to us by Costamare Shipping Company S.A. as provided under our management agreement signed on November 4, 2010 (Initial Public Offering completion date).

Vessels' Operating Expenses

Vessels' operating expenses, which also include the realized gain (loss) under derivative contracts entered into in relation to foreign currency exposure, increased by 3.4%, or $0.9 million, to $27.0 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, from $26.1 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2010. The increase is attributable to the increase of 15.1% of the ownership days of our fleet offset to a great extent by more efficient logistics achieved in the three-month period ended December 31, 2011 compared to the three-month period ended December 31, 2010.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expenses increased by 250.0%, or $1.0 million, to $1.4 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, from $0.4 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2010. The increase in the three-month period ended December 31, 2011 was mainly attributable to increased public-company related expenses charged to us (i.e. legal, audit and Directors and Officers insurance) subsequent to the completion of our Initial Public Offering on November 4, 2010, compared to the three-month period ended December 31, 2010. Furthermore, General and administrative expenses for the three-month period ended December 31, 2011 include $0.25 million compared to $0.16 million for the three month period ended December 31, 2010, for the services of the Company's officers in aggregate charged to us by Costamare Shipping Company S.A. as provided under our management agreement signed on November 4, 2010 (Initial Public Offering completion date).

Management Fees - related parties

Management fees paid to our managers increased by 32.3%, or $1.0 million, to $4.1 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, from $3.1 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2010. The increase was attributable to the daily management fee charged by our managers subsequent to the completion of our Initial Public Offering on November 4, 2010 and to the increased fleet ownership days for the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, compared to the three-month period ended December 31, 2010.

Amortization of Dry-docking and Special Survey Costs

Amortization of deferred dry-docking and special survey costs decreased by 13.0% or $0.3 million, to $2.0 million during the three month period ended December 31, 2011, from $2.3 million during the three month period ended December 31, 2010. The decrease is mainly attributable to the amortization expense not charged relating to the vessels sold during the year ended December 31, 2011 as their unamortized dry-docking balance at the date they were sold, was written-off and was included in the sale result; partly offset by the amortization expense charged for the vessels that were dry-docked during the year ended December 31, 2011. During the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, no vessel underwent special survey. During the three-month period ended December 31, 2010, three vessels underwent special survey.

Depreciation

Depreciation expense increased by 13.1%, or $2.4 million, to $20.7 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, from $18.3 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2010. The increase was primarily attributable to the depreciation expense charged for the two container vessels that were delivered to us in November 2010 and to the ten container vessels that were delivered to us during the year ended December 31, 2011; partly offset by the depreciation expense not charged relating to the vessels sold during the year ended December 31, 2011.

Charter agreement early termination fee

The Charter agreement early termination fee of $9.5 million represents a one-time payment made to the charterer of MSC Navarino (renamed to Hyundai Navarino in January 2011) in December 2010, compensating the charterer MSC for the early termination of the charter party agreement of MSC Navarino. The vessel was redelivered to us by the charterer on January 28, 2011 and on January 30, 2011 she was delivered to charterers HMM for a daily charter rate of $44,000, compared to a daily charter rate of $22,000 under the MSC charter party agreement.

Gain on Sale of Vessels

During the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, we recorded in aggregate, on a net basis, a gain of $2.3 million from the sale of three vessels and the "CTL" of the vessel Rena. During the three month period ended December 31, 2010 no vessel was sold.

Foreign Exchange Gains / (Losses)

Foreign exchange gains/(losses) were gains of $0.2 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, compared to losses of $0.3 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2010, representing a change of $0.5 million resulted from favorable currency exchange rate movements between the U.S. dollar and the Euro.

Interest Income

During the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, interest income decreased by 66.7%, or $0.2 million, to $0.1 million, from $0.3 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2010. The change in interest income was mainly due to average lower cash balances and to the decreased interest rates on our cash deposits in interest bearing accounts during the three-month period ended December 31, 2011 compared to the three month-period ended December 31, 2010.

Interest and Finance Costs

Interest and finance costs increased by 9.6%, or $1.7 million, to $19.5 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, from $17.8 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2010. The increase is partly attributable to increased financing costs and commitment fees charged to us mainly in relation to new credit facilities we entered into with regards to our newbuilding program partly off-set by the capitalized interest in relation with our newbuilding program.

Gain (Loss) on Derivative Instruments

The fair value of our 28 interest rate derivative instruments which were outstanding as of December 31, 2011 equates to the amount that would be paid by us or to us should those instruments be terminated. As of December 31, 2011, the fair value of these 28 interest rate derivative instruments in aggregate amounted to a liability of $170.7 million. Twenty-seven of the 28 interest rate derivative instruments that were outstanding as at December 31, 2011, qualified for hedge accounting and the effective portion in the change of their fair value is recorded in "Comprehensive loss". For the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, a gain of $3.6 million has been included in "Comprehensive loss" and a loss of $0.9 million has been included in "Gain (loss) on derivative instruments" in the consolidated statement of income, resulting from the fair market value change of the interest rate derivative instruments during the three-month period ended December 31, 2011.

The increase was primarily attributable to (a) increased cash from operations of $22.4 million deriving from increased number of ownership days and escalating charter rates, (b) to decreased dry-docking payments of $1.8 million partly offset by unfavorable change in working capital position, excluding the current portion of long-term debt and the accrued charter revenue (representing the difference between cash received in that period and revenue recognized on a straight-line basis) of $6.0 million.

Voyage Revenue

Voyage revenue increased by 8.2%, or $29.0 million, to $382.2 million during the year ended December 31, 2011, from $353.2 million during the year ended December 31, 2010. This increase was mainly due to increased average number of vessels in our fleet during the year ended December 31, 2011 compared to the year ended December 31, 2010. Voyage revenues adjusted on a cash basis, increased by 21.5%, or $72.9 million, to $412.5 million during the year ended December 31, 2011, from $339.6 million during the year ended December 31, 2010. The increase is attributable to the increased ownership days of our fleet, as well as to the increased charter hire received in accordance with certain escalation clauses of our charters, during the year ended December 31, 2011 compared to the year ended December 31, 2010.

Voyage Expenses

Voyage expenses increased by 100.0%, or $2.1 million, to $4.2 million during the year ended December 31, 2011, from $2.1 million during the year ended December 31, 2010. The increase was primarily attributable to (a) the off-hire expenses, mainly to bunkers consumption, of the eight out of ten container vessels which were delivered to us by their sellers in the year ended December 31, 2011 and the five out of seven vessels sold in year ended December 31, 2011, and (b) the third party commissions charged to us in the year ended December 31, 2011 compared to the year ended December 31, 2010.

Voyage Expenses - related parties

Voyage expenses - related parties in the amount of $2.9 million during the year ended December 31, 2011 and in the amount of $0.4 million during the year ended December 31, 2010 represent fees of 0.75% on voyage revenues charged to us by Costamare Shipping Company S.A. as provided under our management agreement signed on November 4, 2010 (Initial Public Offering completion date).

Vessels' Operating Expenses

Vessels' operating expenses, which also include the realized gain (loss) under derivative contracts entered into in relation to foreign currency exposure, increased by 7.4%, or $7.6 million, to $110.4 million during the year ended December 31, 2011, from $102.8 million during the year ended December 31, 2010. The increase is attributable to the increase of 12.6% of the ownership days of our fleet partly offset by more efficient logistics achieved in the year ended December 31, 2011 compared to the year ended December 31, 2010.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expenses increased by 316.7%, or $3.8 million, to $5.0 million during the year ended December 31, 2011, from $1.2 million during the year ended December 31, 2010. The increase in the year ended December 31, 2011 was mainly attributable to increased public-company related expenses charged to us (i.e. legal, audit and Directors and Officers insurance) subsequent to the completion of our Initial Public Offering on November 4, 2010, compared to the year ended December 31, 2010. Furthermore, General and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2011 include $1.0 million compared to $0.16 million for the year ended December 31, 2010, for the services of the Company's officers in aggregate charged to us by Costamare Shipping Company S.A. as provided under our management agreement signed on November 4, 2010 (Initial Public Offering completion date).

Management Fees - related parties

Management fees paid to our managers increased by 35.4%, or $4.0 million, to $15.3 million during the year ended December 31, 2011, from $11.3 million during the year ended December 31, 2010. The increase was attributable to the daily management fee charged by our managers subsequent to the completion of our Initial Public Offering on November 4, 2010 and to the increased fleet ownership days for the year ended December 31, 2011, compared to the year ended December 31, 2010.

Amortization of Dry-docking and Special Survey Costs

Amortization of deferred dry-docking and special survey costs decreased by 4.7% or $0.4 million, to $8.1 million during the year ended December 31, 2011, from $8.5 million during the year ended December 31, 2010. The decrease is mainly attributable to the amortization expense not charged relating to the vessels sold during the year as their unamortized dry-docking balance at the date they were sold, was written-off and was included in the sale result; partly offset by the amortization expense charged for the vessels that were dry-docked during the year. During the year ended December 31, 2011, eight vessels underwent special survey. During the year ended December 31, 2010, twelve vessels underwent special survey.

Depreciation

Depreciation expense increased by 11.1%, or $7.9 million, to $78.8 million during the year ended December 31, 2011, from $70.9 million during the year ended December 31, 2010. The increase was primarily attributable to the depreciation expense charged for the two container vessels that were delivered to us in November 2010 and to the ten container vessels that were delivered to us during the year ended December 31, 2011.

Gain on Sale/disposal of Vessels

During the year ended December 31, 2011, we recorded in aggregate, on a net basis, a gain of $13.1 million from the sale of six vessels and the "CTL" of the vessel Rena During the year ended December 31, 2010, we recorded a gain of $9.6 million from the sale of four vessels.

Charter agreement early termination fee

The Charter agreement early termination fee of $9.5 million represents a one-time payment made to the charterer of MSC Navarino (renamed to Hyundai Navarino in January 2011) in December 2010, compensating the charterer MSC for the early termination of the charter party agreement of MSC Navarino. The vessel was redelivered to us by the charterer on January 28, 2011 and on January 30, 2011 she was delivered to charterers HMM for a daily charter rate of $44,000, compared to a daily charter rate of $22,000 under the MSC charter party agreement.

Foreign Exchange Gains / (Losses)

Foreign exchange gains/(losses) were gains of $0.1 million during the year ended December 31, 2011, compared to losses of $0.3 million during the year ended December 31, 2010, representing a change of $0.4 million resulted from favorable currency exchange rate movements between the U.S. dollar and the Euro.

Interest Income

During the year ended December 31, 2011, interest income decreased by 66.7%, or $1.0 million, to $0.5 million, from $1.5 million during the year ended December 31, 2010. The change in interest income was mainly due to the decreased interest rates on our cash deposits in interest bearing accounts during the year ended December 31, 2011 compared to the year ended December 31, 2010.

Interest and Finance Costs

Interest and finance costs increased by 4.9%, or $3.5 million, to $75.4 million during the year ended December 31, 2011, from $71.9 million during the year ended December 31, 2010. The increase is partly attributable to increased financing costs and commitment fees charged to us mainly in relation to new credit facilities we entered into with regards to our newbuilding program partly off-set by the capitalized interest in relation with our newbuilding program.

Gain (Loss) on Derivative Instruments

The fair value of our 28 derivative instruments which were outstanding as of December 31, 2011 equates to the amount that would be paid by us or to us should those instruments be terminated. As of December 31, 2011, the fair value of these 28 interest rate swaps in aggregate amounted to a liability of $170.7 million. Twenty-seven of the 28 interest rate derivative instruments that were outstanding as at December 31, 2011, qualified for hedge accounting and the effective portion in the change of their fair value is recorded in "Comprehensive loss". For the year ended December 31, 2011, a loss of $55.5 million has been included in "Comprehensive loss" and a loss of $7.3 million has been included in "Gain (loss) on derivative instruments" in the consolidated statement of income, resulting from the fair market value change of the interest rate swaps during the year ended December 31, 2011.
