7 Chairman s Statement This has been a busy year for many of us in the shipping business and that is certainly also true for the Baltic. We launched Baltex, our on-line trading system for FFAs, in June and have made steady progress since then, though without achieving the rapid success many may have expected. We have maintained our financial discipline, while funding the Baltex start-up, and benefited from an extraordinary receipt as a result of a Rights of Light payment related to the development of a site adjacent to 38 St. Mary Axe. We have also devoted much time to ensuring that our benchmark freight market data moves with the rapidly-changing times. Financial performance Revenue for the year of 5,470,028 was 175,078 better than last year. Income from membership activities, including the sale of data to information vendors and clearing houses, rose marginally to 4,286,187. Income from Property rose by 119,592, an increase of 11% compared to last year, benefiting from an increase on review of the Balls Brothers lease now assigned to Novus Leisure and the letting of the 5th floor to Marisec, offsetting the reduction from the new lease terms with H W Wood. The rights of light settlement of 853,751 was received from the developer of the new building at 6 Bevis Marks. This is more fully analysed in the Chief Executive s Report. Costs are higher than last year at 5,399,610, compared to 4,867,682, and reflect the continuing commitment to the Baltex project. This leads to an overall profit after investment gains and before taxation of 1,601,416, compared with 1,266,813 in the prior year. After absorbing Baltex costs the membership activities (i.e. excluding property and investments) area of the business slipped into a loss of 95,989 with property and investments showing profits of 299,371 and 253,032 respectively. Without the effect of Baltex the profit in membership activities would have been 608,177 (: 839,960). Dividend Last year your Board proposed to maintain the dividend despite the short-term expenditures on Baltex. While the financial performance of that project has been disappointing so far, the Board considers it appropriate still to maintain the dividend at last year s level and recommends a final payment of 1.75 per share, making a total for the year of 2.15 per share. Assisted by the rights of light payment, the cost of dividends this year will be more than covered by the profit for the year, although under the accounting rules now in force the final payment will be shown in next year s Accounts. Although your current Board has no desire to see the reserves of the Company increase, it clearly cannot bind future boards with regard to dividend policy. Baltex Both financially and strategically our FFA trading system, Baltex, is one of the most important initiatives we have launched in recent years. The system opened for trading on 8 June with just 8 principals on board and the main FFA brokers. At the time of writing we continue to run at a monthly loss, but now have over 30 principals as members, including the majority of key names in the dry bulk FFA market. Although the evolution of volumes in these early stages continues to be erratic, we have seen upward movement in the moving average of volumes since the autumn and have set new peaks for the day, week and month. Although this does not guarantee success by any means, it does give us good reason to continue to support the project in the expectation of a profitable outcome in the medium term. Convincing the FFA broking members that this project is not damaging for their businesses continues to be a challenge and we have worked hard both in routine communication and by modifications to the price discount structure to convince them. However, we firmly believe the project is right for the Baltic. It is an appropriate response to the demands of the marketplace and the changing regulatory environment and will help hold off other exchanges from entering our market. The main obstacle to success is the need to change the everyday working habits of traders, and this inevitably takes time. Your board is confident that the project is well managed and the costs well controlled and is therefore minded to support the project until it is successful or until such time as it becomes clear that it will not be successful. More details of the progress of the project are contained in the Chief Executive s report and I will be able to give a further update at the AGM. Marketplace developments The shipping market, especially in dry bulk, is developing and changing at a speed not seen for generations. New tonnage delivered has doubled the capacity of the Capesize fleet, and there have been substantial additions to tonnage in all the other sectors. Authority has followed cargo to the East and we now see active fixing of ships of all sizes during the normal Asian working day. 5

8 Chairman s Statement 6 In addition, historically high bunker prices, in parallel with low freight rates, have led to demand for ships which perform well at slow speeds, encouraging new hull and engine design. All of this has presented the Baltic, its staff and the Freight Indices and Futures Committee considerable challenges and there are many issues to resolve in the coming year in partnership with our members who have made increasingly heavy use of our index rates and route assessments in recent years in the physical market, in derivatives and in internal risk management. Member relationships I once again thank all of the panellist brokers who contribute their market knowledge to the process of index production. This has been an especially demanding period for reporting, requiring careful thought and great expertise from panellists and we are most grateful to them. We place great demands on panellists not just in terms of daily inputs of rates, but also by our frequent calls on them to help us understand their thinking and market view. We also consult them seemingly continuously regarding possible changes to route and vessel descriptions and are grateful for their patience and engagement. My thanks go to Philippe Van den Abeele of Castalia Fund Management for his leadership of the vital Freight Market Information Users Group (FMIUG) (Dry) and to Janet Sykes of Clarksons Securities who has now handed over the Chairmanship of the FFA Brokers Association (Dry) to Emily Driver of SSY Futures. Unfortunately the year has seen a number of changes at the top of the tanker FMIUG with Matthew Holme of Trafigura handing over to Jeremy Harris of Shell who in turn was forced by a change of location to hand over to Susan Glover of BP Shipping. Despite the changes we have enjoyed excellent teamwork with the FMIUG (wet) in the last 12 months. Andrew Jamieson of GFI Brokers completed his extended spell as Chairman of the FFABA (wet) and we welcome Nils Arnesen of Marex-Spectron in his place. We once again thank all these leaders for their support and their help in ensuring the Baltic remains engaged with the market and responsive to its needs. We have placed more emphasis in the last 12 months on providing services to members which go beyond the simple provision of benchmark data. We have provided a number of briefings on matters such as sanctions against Iran and Syria and the UK Bribery Act which have the potential to cause great difficulty in the shipping industry. We expect to continue to develop this side of our member services. The Membership Committee, ably led by Stephen Baldey, has been busy and effective with our dispute resolution service. Although sadly the market turmoil of recent years has led to a substantial increase in the number of companies posted on the Baltic, the Committee have proved most effective in collecting debt on behalf of members and I commend this service to all. External relationships We have worked hard this year in representing the shipping industry to the UK government, particularly highlighting the importance of a stable Tonnage Tax regime, though we were unsuccessful in achieving a rethink of further proposed changes to the nondomiciled tax regime. However, in conjunction with our partners in Maritime UK we feel there has been a much improved level of recognition of the vital role of our industry and the importance of the maritime business conducted in London. We have also continued to support Maritime London in its trade promotion activity, including coordinating a dinner with Lord Green to promote the UK as a capital market for international shipping. Directors and staff At the AGM Paul Over and I will step down from the Board. Our positions will be filled, no doubt very ably, by Stefan Albertijn of Toepfer and Tony Carroll of Grey Page. Quentin Soanes has been elected by your Board as Chairman and Guy Campbell as Vice- Chairman and I offer them both my very best wishes. This follows Paul Over s decision last autumn that his other business interests would prevent him from committing to the chairmanship of the Baltic. Paul has agreed however to continue for the time being as Chairman of Baltic Exchange Derivatives Trading Ltd, the subsidiary which operates Baltex, and we are grateful to him for that. I would like to thank the Chief Executive and each of the Directors who have served during my 3 year tenure as Chairman for their time, commitment and wise counsel. Once again I must highlight the work of our loyal and hard-working staff and their commitment to the success of the Baltic. M R Jackson Chairman 1 June

9 Chief Executive s Report Key performance measures At the end of March corporate memberships stood at 600, compared with 593 at the same time last year. The theme this year in membership recruitment has been one of volatility. We have seen a number of resignations as firms have changed their business or ceased trading. However, we have also seen a number of new entrants and Baltex has led to the addition of eight new members. Progress in recruiting members in China has been disappointing but we continue to target this vital market. In Greece, despite the difficult economic environment, we have added three new corporate members in the last year. Revenue from membership subscriptions and members access to freight market information grew to 2,165,014 (: 2,127,674). Although we are not directly affected by lower freight rates, business failures have an impact and the overall environment makes growth more difficult. Revenue from information vendors was slightly better at 1,023,613 (: 1,003,304). We should expect the picture in this area to be, at best, stable now that shipping has lost its allure for many in the financial markets. Income from clearing houses to cover licence fees for the use of our data in their FFA settlement and margin calculations has held up well at 416,145 (: 419,870) despite sometimes soft FFA volumes and often fierce price competition between the clearers. Subscriptions from non-members to our freight market information, sold online via our website, have also remained surprisingly steady at 342,224 (: 342,457). Sales in this area are sensitive to media coverage of shipping, especially BDI, so a slowdown would be expected as shipping has become lower profile from a financial markets point of view. The average monthly number of logons to our website was 32,820 (: 29,435), which shows that the information we provide continues to be of vital interest to the marketplace. The same can be said of the number of members accessing our information via an automated xml feed, which has risen from 42 to 47. Baltex Direct costs attributable to Baltex were 761,181 against income of 57,015, giving rise to a loss of 704,166 which forms part of the membership activity results. We have capitalised the sum of 173,355, related to certain bespoke development activity, which is being depreciated over four years. Staff and technology costs represent the main elements, with little room for reduction because of the important role played by the staff in monitoring the system and building member relationships. We currently have five full-time staff, which is the minimum to provide appropriate operational cover. After a slow start in our list of 30 principal members (up from 8 at the outset) now covers nearly all of the main market participants, a position which has inevitably taken some time to achieve. Since the start of the year we have set new highs in trading volume terms for day, week and month and are optimistic of developing real momentum. Nonetheless we still have considerable distance to go before we reach operating breakeven on a monthly basis. We are dependent not only on changing work habits, but on good volumes in the underlying FFA market which have been poor in the last few weeks. The system is currently authorised throughout the European Economic Area and in Switzerland and is made available with the agreement of the regulators in Singapore and in Monaco. We will extend the geographic coverage as necessary in response to customer interest. A number of major market players show and execute significant business on Baltex, but some have been less committed than we had expected. We are working to remedy this by continuously encouraging usage, maintaining regular dialogue with traders and their management. We have also continued to work with the FFA brokers with the aim of making the system as attractive to them as possible, and have experimented with a number of price schemes, which are approved by the FSA. Other market developments and member services Dry FFAs averaged a weekly volume of 20,109 lots (: 19,947) where one lot is one day of timecharter or 1,000 MT of voyage transportation, while tankers were 24,454 per month (: 29,870). Despite occasional periods of volatility, the generally low and flat rates in the physical market have discouraged growth in FFAs. Countering this 7

10 Chief Executive s Report 8 has been continued expansion in the use of Baltic rates in establishing floating rates for period business. In dry we spent considerable time during the year considering the vessel specification for both the Cape and Panamax TC routes. After much discussion with users and panellists we did not implement a change, however the issue remains on the near-term agenda for Capes at least. We have also come under pressure to find ways to respond both to the use of (usually un-warranted) ecospeed specifications and to the very substantial shift of business to the Pacific, which has arguably unbalanced our traditional TC averages. It is vital that we find a response to this to ensure the Baltic rates, which have become essential tools for both physical and derivative markets, maintain their worldwide position. In a further change to the marketplace, we have seen a distinct shift of market activity to Asia, especially to Singapore, and we have moved our daily reporting of certain Pacific Supramax routes to 1300 Singapore time. We will look over the next 12 months at what changes may be needed for other vessel types and will work to resolve the many implementation issues this generates. We remain determined both to stay in line with market developments and to minimise the disruption caused when we make changes. We have continued to speak at a number of conferences around the world in order to explain the Baltic information production process and to publicise the benefits of membership and engagement with the Baltic. This is in addition to our now very successful dry and wet FFA forums, which this year we ran in London and Shanghai. The Membership Committee, ably supported by Barrie Wooderson, has been instrumental in recovering almost $700,000 owed to members during the financial year. Our help was also enlisted with regard to an unpaid arbitration award of almost $4.0 million which was subsequently paid. These results reflect the standing of the Baltic in the global shipping marketplace. Building and investments The building at 38 St Mary Axe is once more fully let with a rental yield of 7.4% (: 6.9%). We completed the assignment of the Balls Brothers lease to Novus Leisure, securing an increase to the rent on the related rent review. We also negotiated a new contract with Novus Leisure for the provision of catering services. This has so far had a series of setbacks, in many cases linked to their staff turnover. However, we are working with Novus Leisure to ensure that the service offered to members and to customers of our conference facilities is of the required standard. In view of the relatively weak rental market for a building such as ours and the insistence of some tenants on a capped service charge when negotiating new leases, we have set ourselves a target of reducing the service charge costs below the caps we have negotiated. During the year we obtained a payment of 853,751 from the developer of the new building at 6 Bevis Marks as compensation for the loss of light which is expected to result from the previous building, which has been demolished, being replaced by a taller development. The investment portfolio has continued to perform well with a total return for the period of 7.0% (: 8.1%). Fixed income has offered gains as yields have continued to come down. However, at the beginning of March we felt that the fixed income side of the investment portfolio has played itself out and either side of the year end we realised substantial gains, selling all the fixed interest and index linked bonds in the Charles Stanley portfolio. We are considering how best to redeploy the funds for an environment in which interest rates start to rise in the next year or two. Sports and social The Baltic remains enthusiastic about supporting sports clubs and social activities among members, especially those under 35 who are able to participate in the Young Baltic Association (YBA). The YBA held events in London and Singapore. The Sailing Association (BESA) and the Golf Society (BEGS) continue to run an active programme throughout the summer, with financial assistance from the Baltic. The Sub-Aqua Club and the Cricket Club continue too to be active, while competition is fierce for the David Bradley trophy in which member firms compete in sailing, golf, tennis and a quiz night.

13 Directors Report Membership At the end of March there were 600 organisations in membership of the Exchange compared with 593 last year. The total number of people representing those organisations at the end of March was 2,454 as compared with 2,449 at the end of March. Donations During the year the Group made charitable donations of 25,660 principally to maritime or City of London organisations. Going concern The Directors of The Baltic Exchange Limited, having made appropriate enquiries, consider that adequate resources exist to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future and, therefore, it is appropriate to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the financial statements for the year ended 31 March. Fixed assets In the opinion of the Directors, the current open market value of the interest in land and buildings exceeds the book value of 10.2 million. At 31 March 2010 the freehold property was valued at 14.8 million by CB Richard Ellis Ltd, Chartered Surveyors. The valuation was carried out on the basis of market value as defined in the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Valuation Standards (6th edition). If the accounts reflected the increase, there would be a revaluation adjustment of 4.6 million. Financial risk management The Group does not use derivatives to manage its financial risks. The most important components of financial risk are interest rate risk, currency risk, credit risk, liquidity risk, cash flow risk and price risk. Due to the nature of the Group s business and the assets and liabilities contained within the Group s balance sheet the financial risk the Directors consider most relevant to the Group is interest rate risk in relation to the investment portfolio which is mitigated by the Group s investment strategy. Auditors A resolution to re-appoint Deloitte LLP will be proposed at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting. Statement as to disclosure of information to auditors Each of the persons who is a Director of the Company at the date of approval of this annual report confirms that: So far as the Director is aware, there is no relevant audit information of which the Company s auditors are unaware, and: The Director has taken all the steps that he ought to have taken as a Director in order to make himself aware of any relevant audit information and to establish that the Company s auditors are aware of that information. This confirmation is given and should be interpreted in accordance with the provisions of s418 of the Companies Act By Order of the Board D W T Bain Company Secretary The Baltic Exchange St. Mary Axe London EC3A 8BH 1 June 11

15 Directors Responsibilities Statement The Directors are responsible for preparing the Annual Report and the financial statements in accordance with applicable law and regulations. Company law requires directors to prepare financial statements for each financial year. Under that law the Directors have elected to prepare the financial statements in accordance with United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice (United Kingdom Accounting Standards and applicable law). The financial statements are required by law to give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Company and the Group and of the profit or loss of the Group for that period. In preparing these financial statements, the Directors are required to: a) select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently; b) make judgements and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; c) state whether applicable UK Accounting Standards have been followed, subject to any material departures disclosed and explained in the financial statements; and d) prepare the financial statements on the going concern basis unless it is inappropriate to presume that the Company will continue in business. The Directors are responsible for keeping proper accounting records that disclose with reasonable accuracy at any time the financial position of the Company and enable them to ensure that the financial statements comply with the Companies Act They are also responsible for safeguarding the assets of the Company and hence for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities. The Directors are responsible for the maintenance and integrity of the corporate and financial information included on the Company s website. Legislation in the United Kingdom governing the preparation and dissemination of financial statements may differ from legislation in other jurisdictions. M R Jackson Q B Soanes Directors 1 June 13

16 Independent Auditor s Report to the Members of The Baltic Exchange Limited 14 We have audited the financial statements of The Baltic Exchange Limited for the year ended 31 March which comprise the Consolidated Profit and Loss Account, the Consolidated and Company Balance Sheets, the Consolidated Cash Flow Statement and the related notes 1 to 21. The financial reporting framework that has been applied in their preparation is applicable law and United Kingdom Accounting Standards (United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice). This report is made solely to the Company s members, as a body, in accordance with Chapter 3 of Part 16 of the Companies Act Our audit work has been undertaken so that we might state to the Company s members those matters we are required to state to them in an auditor s report and for no other purpose. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we do not accept or assume responsibility to anyone other than the Company and the Company s members as a body, for our audit work, for this report, or for the opinions we have formed. Respective responsibilities of Directors and Auditor As explained more fully in the Directors Responsibilities Statement, the Directors are responsible for the preparation of the financial statements and for being satisfied that they give a true and fair view. Our responsibility is to audit and express an opinion on the financial statements in accordance with applicable law and International Standards on Auditing (UK and Ireland). Those standards require us to comply with the Auditing Practices Board s Ethical Standards for Auditors. Scope of the audit of the financial statements An audit involves obtaining evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements sufficient to give reasonable assurance that the financial statements are free from material misstatement, whether caused by fraud or error. This includes an assessment of: whether the accounting policies are appropriate to the Group s and the Parent Company s circumstances and have been consistently applied and adequately disclosed; the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by the Directors; and the overall presentation of the financial statements. In addition, we read all the financial and non-financial information in the annual report to identify material inconsistencies with the audited financial statements. If we become aware of any apparent material misstatements or inconsistencies we consider the implications for our report. Opinion on financial statements In our opinion the financial statements: give a true and fair view of the state of the Group s and the Parent Company s affairs as at 31 March and of the Group s profit for the year then ended; have been properly prepared in accordance with United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice; and have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Companies Act Opinion on other matter prescribed by the Companies Act 2006 In our opinion the information given in the Directors Report for the financial year for which the financial statements are prepared is consistent with the financial statements. Matters on which we are required to report by exception We have nothing to report in respect of the following matters where the Companies Act 2006 requires us to report to you if, in our opinion: adequate accounting records have not been kept or returns adequate for our audit have not been received from branches not visited by us; or the financial statements are not in agreement with the accounting records and returns; or certain disclosures of Directors remuneration specified by law are not made; or we have not received all the information and explanations we require for our audit; or the Directors were not entitled to take advantage of the small companies exemption in preparing the Directors Report.

20 Notes on the Accounts for the year ended 31 March 1. Accounting policies The accounts have been prepared in accordance with applicable Accounting Standards in the United Kingdom and in accordance with the Companies Act on a going concern basis. These have been applied consistently in the current and preceding year. The particular accounting policies adopted are described below. a) The accounts are prepared under the historical cost convention. b) Basis of consolidation. The consolidated profit and loss account and balance sheet include the financial statements of the Company and its subsidiary undertakings made up to 31 March. Intra-group transactions are eliminated fully on consolidation. c) Fixed asset investments are stated at cost less provision for any permanent diminution in value. Premiums paid on the acquisition of securities that are held to maturity are amortised over the remaining life of the investments. Included in fixed asset investments are short-term deposits held for future investment. d) Tangible fixed assets are stated at cost net of depreciation and any provision for impairment. Depreciation is calculated to write off the assets to their residual value on a straight line basis during their expected normal lives at varying rates depending on the type of asset. The principal annual rates of depreciation used for this purpose are freehold buildings 2%, building plant 4%, other plant and equipment 25%, fittings 10% and furniture 25%. An annual rate of depreciation of 25% is applied on the Baltex platform assets with effect from the year of launch. No depreciation is provided on freehold land. e) Taxation is provided at amounts expected to be paid (or recovered) using the tax rates and laws that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the balance sheet date. Deferred taxation is provided in full on timing differences that result in an obligation at the balance sheet date to pay more tax, or a right to pay less tax, at a future date, at rates expected to apply when they crystallise based on current tax rates and law. Timing differences arise from the inclusion of items of income and expenditure in taxation computations in periods different from those in which they are included in the financial statements. Deferred tax assets are recognised to the extent that it is regarded as more likely than not that they will be recovered. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are not discounted. f) Pensions. The Company operates a defined contribution pension scheme. The assets of the scheme are held separately from those of the Company. The pension cost charge represents contributions payable by the Company under the rules of the scheme and contributions made in the alternative to the private pension plans of certain members of staff. Differences between contributions payable in the year and contributions actually paid are shown as either accruals or prepayments in the Balance Sheet. 18
