Recent developments

  • As previously announced, M/V Jonathan P (a 1,740 teu container feeder vessel built in 2006), was delivered to the Company in October 2021. Within the same period, the Company drew a loan of $15 million with M/V Jonathan P used as collateral. The loan will be repaid in twelve quarterly installments of $1.1 million each, followed by a balloon payment of $1.8 million. Upon delivery to the Company, the vessel commenced a three-year charter at a net rate of $26,662 per day.

  • On November 11, 2021, the Company announced the acquisition of M/V Leo Paramount (to be renamed M/V Marcos V), a 6,350 teu containership build in 2005, for $40 million. The vessel, which is expected to be delivered to the Company within 2021, will be financed by own funds and a bank loan. Contemporaneously with the acquisition, the vessel will enter into a three-year time charter contract at a daily rate of $42,200 with a possible extension for an additional (fourth) year at the option of the charterer at $15,000 per day.

  • The Company is in the final stage of documentation of a $16.5 million “top-up”/second lien loan over the loan collateralized by its four “Synergy” vessels with the same bank.

1Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted earnings per share are not recognized measurements under U.S. GAAP (GAAP) and should not be used in isolation or as a substitute for Euroseas financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. 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.

Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of Euroseas commented:
“Containership charter rates during the third quarter reached new record highs propelled by strong demand for and limited supply of vessels coupled with increased inefficiency of the worldwide transportation system. Indeed, long lines of vessels waiting to enter are being observed outside ports the world over. In the latter part of October and early November, certain indices that track the market have retracted from their high levels but it is questionable whether this reflects easing of the tightness of the market or lack of transactions as most vessels are committed.

On the supply side, while the orderbook ranks have been filling up, the majority of the deliveries are scheduled for the second half of 2023 onwards. Thus, over the next couple of years, especially during 2022, we believe that fleet growth will remain modest and provide us with opportunities to re-charter our vessels at very attractive rate levels. In addition, incremental regulatory requirements coming in effect in 2023/2024 will further restrict the effective supply of vessels and assist in absorbing increased new deliveries. We expect our profitability to increase alongside with increased visibility of our earnings which now extends well into 2023, especially following our recent acquisition of M/V Leo Paramount, a 6,350 teu vessel, which we chartered for a minimum of three years at $42,200/day, with an optional one-year extension at $15,000/day.

This latest acquisition reaffirms our strategy to grow Euroseas to a long term participant in the feeder/intermediate containership segment, a strategy further supported by our newbuilding program with our two 2,800 teu vessels scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2023. We are committed to grow with accretive transactions that minimize market and other risks, maximize returns and generate rewards to our shareholders, especially, as our earnings accumulation rate increases during the fourth quarter of 2021 due partly to the $202,000 per day charter rate earned by one of our vessels.”

Tasos Aslidis, Chief Financial Officer of Euroseas commented:
“The results of the third quarter of 2021 reflect the significantly higher time charter rates our vessels earned in the third quarter of 2021, compared to the corresponding period of 2020 although the Company operated an average of 14.0 vessels, versus 16.52 vessels during the same period last year. Our net revenues increased to $23.0 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to $12.3 million during the same period of last year. On a per-vessel-per-day basis, our vessels earned a 131.8% higher average charter rate in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to the same period of 2020. At the same time, total daily vessel operating expenses, including management fees, general and administrative expenses but excluding drydocking costs, during the third quarter of 2021, averaged $7,321 per vessel per day, as compared to $6,759 for the same period of last year and $7,033 per vessel per day for the first nine months of 2021 as compared to $6,234 per vessel per day for the same period of 2020. The increased operating expenses for the third quarter of 2021 are mainly attributable to the increased hull and machinery insurance premiums and the increased crewing costs for our vessels resulting from difficulties in crew rotation due to COVID-19 related restrictions.

Adjusted EBITDA during the third quarter of 2021 was $10.6 million versus $1.2 million in the third quarter of last year, and it reached $26.6 million versus $9.7 million for the respective nine-month periods of 2021 and 2020.

As of September 30, 2021, our outstanding debt (excluding the unamortized loan fees) was $59.7 million versus restricted and unrestricted cash of $10.2 million. As of the same date, our scheduled debt repayments over the next 12 months amounted to about $15.0 million (excluding the unamortized loan fees).”

Third Quarter 2021 Results:
For the third quarter of 2021, the Company reported total net revenues of $23.0 million representing a 86.9% increase over total net revenues of $12.3 million during the third quarter of 2020 which was the result of the higher average charter rates our vessels earned in the third quarter of 2021 compared to the corresponding period of 2020, partly offset by the lower average number of vessels operating in the third quarter of 2021. The Company reported net income and net income attributable to common shareholders for the period of $8.5 million, as compared to a net income of $0.2 million and a net income attributable to common shareholders of $0.03 million, respectively, for the third quarter of 2020. Related party management fees for the three months ended September 30, 2021 were $1.1 million compared to $1.4 million for the same period of 2020. The decrease is due to the lower average number of vessels operated by the Company in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to the same period of 2020. Depreciation expense remained unchanged at $1.6 million for both the third quarter of 2021 and 2020. Although the average number of vessels operating in the third quarter of 2021 decreased to 14.0 as compared to 16.52 for the same period of 2020, the new mix of vessels, taking into account the new vessels acquired at the end of 2019, has a higher average daily depreciation charge as a result of their higher initial values (acquisition price) compared to the remaining vessels.

Vessel operating expenses for the same period of 2021 amounted to $7.6 million as compared to $8.2 million for the same period of 2020. The decreased amount is mainly due to the lower number of vessels owned and operated in the three months of 2021 compared to the same period of 2020, partly offset by the increased crewing costs for our vessels compared to the same period of 2020, resulting from difficulties in crew rotation due to COVID-19 related restrictions and the increase in hull and machinery insurance premiums.

On average, 14.0 vessels were owned and operated during the third quarter of 2021 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $19,482 per day compared to 16.52 vessels in the same period of 2020 earning on average $8,403 per day.

Interest and other financing costs for the third quarter of 2021 amounted to $0.6 million compared to $0.9 million for the same period of 2020. This decrease is due to the decreased amount of debt and decrease in the weighted average LIBOR rate in the current period compared to the same period of 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the third quarter of 2021 was $10.6 million compared to $1.2 million achieved during the third quarter of 2020.

Basic and diluted earnings per share attributable to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2021 was $1.18 and $1.17 calculated on 7,198,991 and 7,241,740 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding, respectively, compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.01 for the third quarter of 2020, calculated on 5,708,610 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding.

Excluding the effect on the income attributable to common shareholders for the quarter of the unrealized gain on derivative, the adjusted earnings attributable to common shareholders for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 would have been $1.16 per share basic and diluted, respectively, compared to an adjusted loss of $0.26 per share basic and diluted for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, after excluding unrealized loss on derivative and net gain on sale of vessels. Usually, security analysts do not include the above item in their published estimates of earnings per share.

Nine Months 2021 Results:
For the first nine months of 2021, the Company reported total net revenues of $55.6 million representing a 34.8% increase over total net revenues of $41.3 million during the first nine months of 2020, as a result of the higher average charter rates our vessels earned in the first nine months of 2021 compared to the corresponding period of 2020. The Company reported a net income for the period of $20.2 million and a net income attributable to common shareholders of $19.6 million, as compared to a net income of $3.5 million and a net income attributable to common shareholders of $2.9 million for the first nine months of 2020. The results for the first nine months of 2021 include a $0.6 million unrealized gain on derivative. The results for the first nine months of 2020 include a $1.3 million net gain on sale of vessels, $1.5 million of amortization of below market time charters acquired, a $0.1 million loss on write down of vessel held for sale and a $0.6 million unrealized loss on derivative. Related party management fees for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 were $3.2 million compared to $4.0 million for the same period of 2020. Depreciation expense for the first nine months of 2021 was $4.8 million compared to $5.0 million during the same period of 2020. The decrease in related party management fees and depreciation expense is due to the lower average number of vessels operated by the Company in the first nine months of 2021 as compared to the same period of 2020.

Vessel operating expenses for the same period of 2021 amounted to $21.4 million as compared to $24.7 million for the same period of 2020. The decreased amount is mainly due to the lower number of vessels owned and operated in the nine months of 2021 compared to the same period of 2020, partly offset by the increased supply of stores, the increased crewing costs for our vessels compared to the same period of 2020, resulting from difficulties in crew rotation due to COVID-19 related restrictions and the increase in hull and machinery insurance premiums.

Drydocking expenses amounted to $2.9 million for the nine months of 2021 (two vessels passed their special survey with drydock), compared to $0.4 million for the same period of 2020 (one vessel passed its intermediate survey in-water and two vessels their special survey in-water).

On average, 14.0 vessels were owned and operated during the first nine months of 2021 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $15,478 per day compared to 18.17 vessels in the same period of 2020 earning on average $9,171 per day.

Interest and other financing costs for the first nine months of 2021 amounted to $2.0 million compared to $3.3 million for the same period of 2020. This decrease is due to the decreased amount of debt and the decreased Libor rates of our bank loans in the current period compared to the same period of 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the first nine months of 2021 was $26.6 million compared to $9.7 million during the first nine months of 2020.

Basic and diluted earnings per share attributable to common shareholders for the first nine months of 2021 were $2.84 and $2.82, calculated on 6,898,195 and 6,942,614 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding, respectively, compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.52 for the first nine months of 2020, calculated on 5,621,159 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding.

Excluding the effect on the income attributable to common shareholders for the first nine months of 2021 of the unrealized gain on derivative and the net loss on sale of vessel, the adjusted earnings per share attributable to common shareholders for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021 would have been $2.76 and $2.74 basic and diluted, respectively, compared to adjusted earnings of $0.15 per share basic and diluted for the same period in 2020, after excluding unrealized loss on derivative, net gain on sale of vessels, amortization of below market time charters acquired and loss on write down of vessel held for sale. 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, vessels committed for sale or vessels that suffered unrepaired damages, are days associated with scheduled repairs, drydockings or special or intermediate surveys or days of vessels in lay-up, or of vessels that were committed for sale or suffered unrepaired damages.

(4) Available days. We define available days as the Calendar days in a period net of scheduled off-hire days as defined above. 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 rate, or TCE rate, 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 expenses 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 income before interest, income taxes, depreciation, loss / (gain) on interest rate swap, net (gain) / loss on sale of vessels, loss on write down of vessel held for sale and amortization of below market time charters acquired. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, 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, net gain / (loss) on sale of vessels, loss on write down of vessel held for sale, amortization of below market time charters acquired and loss / (gain) on interest rate swap, 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) / income and Adjusted (loss) / earnings per share Reconciliation:
Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted net (loss) / income to represent net (loss) / income before unrealized loss / (gain) on derivative, net (gain) / loss on sale of vessels, loss on write down of vessel held for sale and amortization of below market time charters acquired. Adjusted net (loss) / income and Adjusted (loss) / earnings 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 loss / (gain) on derivative, net (gain) / loss on sale of vessels, loss on write down of vessel held for sale and amortization of below market time charters acquired, which items may significantly affect results of operations between periods.

Adjusted net (loss) / income and Adjusted (loss) / earnings per share do not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net (loss) / income or (loss) / earnings per share, as determined by GAAP. The Company’s definition of Adjusted net (loss) / income and Adjusted (loss) / earnings per share may not be the same as that used by other companies in the shipping or other industries.
