Euroseas Ltd. Reports Results for the Nine-Month Period and Quarter Ended September 30, 2019

/EIN News/ -- MAROUSSI, ATHENS, Greece, Nov. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Euroseas Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESEA, the “Company” or “Euroseas”), an owner and operator of container carrier vessels and provider of seaborne transportation for containerized cargoes, announced today its results for the three and nine month period ended September 30, 2019.

Third Quarter 2019 Highlights:

  • Total net revenues of $10.3 million. Net loss of $0.2 million; net loss attributable to common shareholders (after a $0.2 million dividend on Series B Preferred Shares) of $0.3 million or $0.01 loss per share basic and diluted. Adjusted net loss attributable to common shareholders1 for the period was $0.5 million or $0.021 per share basic and diluted. 
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 was $1.6 million.
  • An average of 13.5 vessels were owned and operated during the third quarter of 2019 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $8,554 per day.
  • During the third quarter, the Company took delivery of four feeder containerships, owned by affiliates of the Pittas family controlled by the Company’s CEO, agreed to be acquired in May 2019. The consideration for the acquisition included a cash payment of $15 million and the issuance of approximately 22.5 million shares of common stock to the sellers at a share price of $0.71. The four vessels, one with capacity 3,100 teu vessel built in 2007, two with capacity 1,740 teu vessels built in 2005 and 2007 and one with capacity 2008 teu vessel built in 1998, represent a significant expansion of Euroseas’ fleet both in terms of units and value.
  • Finally, the Company declared its third cash dividend of $0.16 million on its Series B Preferred Shares.

Other Developments:

  • As previously announced, the Company acquired, and took delivery, from companies controlled by Synergy Holdings Limited (from November 18, 2019 to November 21, 2019), for approximately $40 million, four container carrier vessels of intermediate size of 4,253 teu, all built in South Korea, three in 2009 and the other in 2008.
  • The acquisition of the four vessels was financed by bank debt of $32 million, existing funds of the Company and a private placement of $6 million at a share price of $0.71 subscribed equally by an entity affiliated to the Company’s CEO and an entity controlled by the seller of the four vessels.

Nine Months 2019 Highlights:

  • Total net revenues of $26.7 million. Net loss of $0.9 million; net loss attributable to common shareholders (after a $1.1 million dividend on Series B Preferred Shares and a $0.5 million preferred deemed dividend arising out of the redemption of approximately $11.7 million of Series B Preferred Shares in the second quarter of 2019) of $2.5 million or $0.15 loss per share basic and diluted. Adjusted net loss per share attributable to common shareholders1 for the period was $2.8 million or $0.161 per share basic and diluted.
  •  Adjusted EBITDA1 was $4.1 million.
  • An average of 11.83 vessels were owned and operated during the first nine months of 2019 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $8,638 per day.

Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of Euroseas commented:
“The feeder and intermediate containership markets have increased further in the third quarter as compared to the first half of 2019, while for the last several weeks have largely maintained the levels reached during the month of September. In August 2019, we added four feeder containerships to our fleet, two built in 2007, one in 2005 and one in 1998, while last week, we added four additional vessels of intermediate size (“panamax”) built in 2008 and 2009 increasing our fleet to 19 vessels. Thus, over the last four months our fleet has increased by more than 70% in terms of units and about 100% in terms of carrying capacity.

The expansion of our fleet since August, paid partly in shares, has validated our strategy of pursuing the consolidation of the feeder and intermediate containership sectors in our publicly listed platform. We expect to continue to build on this growth path at a time during which the market fundamentals on the supply side indicate a small – by historical standards – fleet growth over the next couple of years. We believe that containerized trade growth will positively contribute to the level of rates and values over the next couple of years assuming that trade tensions further subside and economic growth returns to 2018 levels as expected by the IMF.”

Tasos Aslidis, Chief Financial Officer of Euroseas commented:
“The results of the third quarter of 2019 reflect the decreased levels of the containership market compared to the same period of 2018. At the same time, total daily vessel operating expenses, including management fees, general and administrative expenses but excluding drydocking costs, remained at the same levels for the nine month period as compared to the same period of last year and increased by about 6.6% for the three month period ended September 30, 2019 over the same period of 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA during the third quarter of 2019 was $1.6 million versus $0.6 million in the third quarter of last year, and it reached $4.1 million versus $3.1 million for the respective nine-month periods of 2019 and 2018.

As of September 30, 2019, our outstanding debt (excluding the unamortized loan fees) was $57.6 million versus restricted and unrestricted cash of $7.4 million. As of the same date, our scheduled debt repayments over the next 12 months amounted to about $9.7 million (excluding the unamortized loan fees).”

Presentation of results due to the spin-off of May 2018
On May 30, 2018, the Company spun-off its drybulk fleet (excluding M/V Monica P, a handymax drybulk carrier, which was agreed to be sold) into EuroDry Ltd., a separate publicly listed company also listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market. Shareholders of the Company received one EuroDry Ltd. share for every five shares of the Company they held. As a result of the spin-off and the subsequent sale of M/V Monica P, the Company has become a pure containership company and the only publicly listed company concentrating on the feeder containership sector.

The results below refer to Euroseas Ltd. “continuing operations” excluding the contribution from Euroseas Ltd. of vessels spun-off into EuroDry Ltd. in May 2018 (“discontinued operations”) from historical comparative periods which have been adjusted accordingly.

Third Quarter 2019 Results:
For the third quarter of 2019, the Company reported total net revenues of $10.3 million representing a 23.4% increase over total net revenues of $8.3 million during the third quarter of 2018 which was the result of the increased average number of vessels operating in the third quarter of 2019 partly offset by the decrease in the average time charter equivalent rate our vessels earned in the third quarter of 2019 compared to the corresponding period of 2018. The Company reported net loss for the period of $0.2 million and a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $0.3 million, as compared to a net loss of $0.9 million and a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $1.1 million respectively, for the third quarter of 2018. The results for the third quarter of 2019 include a $0.2 million amortization of below market time charters acquired. Drydocking expenses amounted to $0.4 million during the third quarter of 2019 comprising the drydocking cost of one vessel that entered into drydocking in the third quarter of 2019 and completed its special survey in the fourth quarter of 2019. Depreciation expense for the third quarter of 2019 was $1.1 million, higher compared to $0.8 million for the same period of 2018 due to the increased number of vessels operated by the Company.

Vessel operating expenses for the same period of 2019 amounted to $6.3 million as compared to $4.6 million for the same period of 2018. The increased amount is mainly due to the higher number of vessels owned and operated in the three months of 2019 compared to the same period of 2018. Additionally some of our vessels incurred unexpected spare parts maintenance costs in the third quarter of 2019 compared to the same period of 2018.  

On average, 13.5 vessels were owned and operated during the third quarter of 2019 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $8,554 per day compared to 11.00 vessels in the same period of 2018 earning on average $9,704 per day. 

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the third quarter of 2019 was $1.6 million compared to $0.6 million achieved during the third quarter of 2018.

Basic and diluted loss per share attributable to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2019 was $0.01 calculated on 26,268,409 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding, compared to basic and diluted loss per share of $0.10 for the third quarter of 2018, calculated on 11,183,899 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding. 

Excluding the effect on the loss attributable to common shareholders for the quarter of the amortization of below market time charters acquired and of the unrealized gain on derivative, the adjusted loss attributable to common shareholders for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 would have been $0.02 per share basic and diluted compared to an adjusted loss of $0.10 per share basic and diluted for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. Usually, security analysts do not include the above items in their published estimates of earnings per share.

Nine Months 2019 Results:
For the first nine months of 2019, the Company reported total net revenues of $26.7 million representing a 1% increase over total net revenues of $26.4 million during the first nine months of 2018 which was the result of the increased average number of vessels and increased voyage days in the first nine months of 2019 partly offset by the decrease in the average time charter equivalent rate our vessels earned in the third quarter of 2019 compared to the corresponding period of 2018. The Company reported net loss for the period of $0.9 million and net loss attributable to common shareholders of $2.5 million, as compared to a net loss of $0.1 million and a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $1.2 million, respectively, for the first nine months of 2018. The results for the first nine months of 2019 include $0.2 million of amortization of below market time charters acquired and $0.04 million of unrealized gain on derivative. The results for the first nine months of 2018 include $1.3 million gain on sale of a vessel and $0.2 million of unrealized gain on derivative. Depreciation expense for the first nine months of 2019 was $2.7 million compared to $2.5 million during the same period of 2018.

Vessel operating expenses for the same period of 2019 amounted to $16.1 million as compared to $15.4 million for the same period of 2018. The increased amount is mainly due to the higher number of vessels owned and operated in the nine months of 2019 compared to the same period of 2018.

Drydocking expenses amounted to $1.2 million for the nine months of 2019 (one of our vessels completed her special survey with drydock, another one completed her intermediate survey in-water and one vessel entered into drydock that was completed in the fourth quarter of 2019), compared to $2.4 million for the same period of 2018 where three of our vessels completed their special surveys with drydocks and another two completed their intermediate surveys in-water.

On average, 11.83 vessels were owned and operated during the first nine months of 2019 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $8,638 per day compared to 11.64 vessels in the same period of 2018 earning on average $9,371 per day. 

Interest and other financing costs for the first nine months of 2019 amounted to $2.3 million compared to $2.1 million for the same period of 2018. This increase is due to the increased amount of debt and increased LIBOR in the current period compared to the same period of 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the first nine months of 2019 was $4.1 million compared to $3.1 million during the first nine months of 2018. 

Basic and diluted loss per share attributable to common shareholders for the first nine months of 2019 was $0.15, calculated on 17,033,863 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding compared to basic and diluted loss per share of $0.11 for the first nine months of 2018, calculated on 11,150,659 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding. 

Excluding the effect on the loss attributable to common shareholders for the first nine months of 2019 of the unrealized gain on derivative, the gain on sale of vessel, and the amortization of the below market time charters acquired, the adjusted loss attributable to common shareholders for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2019 would have been $0.16 per share basic and diluted compared to an adjusted loss of $0.24 per share basic and diluted for the same period in 2018. As mentioned above, usually, security analysts do not include the above items in their published estimates of earnings per share.

(1) Average number of vessels is the number of vessels that constituted the Company’s fleet for the relevant period, as measured by the sum of the number of calendar days each vessel was a part of the Company’s fleet during the period divided by the number of calendar days in that period.

(2) Calendar days. We define calendar days as the total number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet was in our possession including off-hire days associated with major repairs, drydockings or special or intermediate surveys or days of vessels in lay-up. Calendar days are an indicator of the size of our fleet over a period and affect both the amount of revenues and the amount of expenses that we record during that period.

(3) The scheduled off-hire days including vessels laid-up are days associated with scheduled repairs, drydockings or special or intermediate surveys or days of vessels in lay-up.

(4) Available days. We define available days as the total number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet was in our possession net of scheduled off-hire days including laid up. We use available days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels were available to generate revenues.

(5) Commercial off-hire days. We define commercial off-hire days as days a vessel is idle without employment.   

(6) Operational off-hire days. We define operational off-hire days as days associated with unscheduled repairs or other off-hire time related to the operation of the vessels.

(7) Voyage days. We define voyage days as the total number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet was in our possession net of commercial and operational off-hire days. We use voyage days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels actually generate revenues or are sailing for repositioning purposes.

(8) Fleet utilization. We calculate fleet utilization by dividing the number of our voyage days during a period by the number of our available days during that period. We use fleet utilization to measure a company’s efficiency in finding suitable employment for its vessels and minimizing the amount of days that its vessels are off-hire for reasons such as unscheduled repairs or days waiting to find employment.

(9) Fleet utilization, commercial. We calculate commercial fleet utilization by dividing our available days net of commercial off-hire days during a period by our available days during that period.

(10) Fleet utilization, operational. We calculate operational fleet utilization by dividing our available days net of operational off-hire days during a period by our available days during that period.

(11) Time charter equivalent, or TCE, is a measure of the average daily revenue performance of our vessels. Our method of calculating TCE is determined by dividing time charter revenue and voyage charter revenue net of voyage expenses by voyage days for the relevant time period. Voyage expenses primarily consist of port, canal and fuel costs that are unique to a particular voyage, which would otherwise be paid by the charterer under a time charter contract, or are related to repositioning the vessel for the next charter. TCE is a standard shipping industry performance measure used primarily to compare period-to-period changes in a shipping company's performance despite changes in the mix of charter types (i.e., spot voyage charters, time charters and bareboat charters) under which the vessels may be employed between the periods. Our definition of TCE may not be comparable to that used by other companies in the shipping industry.

(12) Daily vessel operating expenses, which includes crew costs, provisions, deck and engine stores, lubricating oil, insurance, maintenance and repairs and management fees are calculated by dividing vessel operating expenses by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period. Drydocking expenses are reported separately.

(13) Daily general and administrative expense is calculated by dividing general and administrative expense by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period.

(14) Total vessel operating expenses, or TVOE, is a measure of our total expenses associated with operating our vessels. TVOE is the sum of vessel operating expenses, management fees and general and administrative expenses; drydocking expenses are not included. Daily TVOE is calculated by dividing TVOE by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period.

(15) Drydocking expenses include expenses during drydockings that would have been capitalized and amortized under the deferral method divided by the fleet calendar days for the relevant period. Drydocking expenses could vary substantially from period to period depending on how many vessels underwent drydocking during the period. The Company expenses drydocking expenses as incurred.

Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation:

Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted EBITDA to represent net loss before interest, income taxes, depreciation, loss on interest rate swaps and amortization of below market time charters acquired. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income / (loss), as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is included herein because it is a basis upon which the Company assesses its financial performance because the Company believes that this non-GAAP financial measure assists our management and investors by increasing the comparability of our performance from period to period by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods of, financial costs, amortization of below market time charters acquired and (gain) / loss on interest rate swaps, and depreciation. The Company's definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be the same as that used by other companies in the shipping or other industries.

Adjusted net loss and Adjusted loss per share Reconciliation:
Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted net loss to represent net loss before unrealized gain on derivative, gain on sale of vessel and amortization of below market time charters acquired. Adjusted net loss and Adjusted loss per share is included herein because we believe it assists our management and investors by increasing the comparability of the Company's fundamental performance from period to period by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods of unrealized gain on derivative, gain on sale of vessels and amortization of below market time charters acquired, which items may significantly affect results of operations between periods. Adjusted net loss and Adjusted loss per share do not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or loss per share, as determined by GAAP. The Company's definition of Adjusted net loss and Adjusted loss per share may not be the same as that used by other companies in the shipping or other industries.

Refer to a subsequent section of the Press Release for the definitions and reconciliation of these measurements to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
