Tsakos Energy Navigation Limited (TNP: Quote) reported that its first-quarter net income attributable to the company was $1.02 million or $0.02 per share, compared to a net loss of $8.81 million or $0.19 per share in the year ago quarter. The results were mainly due to increases in product carrier rates, and ability to capitalize on significant presence in this sector and to the impact of the LNG carrier Neo Energy.
