Euroseas Ltd. Reports Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2013

May 17, 2013

MAROUSSI, ATHENS, GREECE--(Marketwired - May 17, 2013) - Euroseas Ltd. ( NASDAQ : ESEA ), an owner and operator of drybulk and container carrier vessels and provider of seaborne transportation for drybulk and containerized cargoes, announced today its results for the three month period ended March 31, 2013.

First Quarter 2013 Highlights:

  • Net loss of $4.6 million or $0.10 loss per share basic and diluted on total net revenues of $10.9 million. Adjusted net loss1 for the period was the same.

  • Adjusted EBITDA1 was $(0.1) million.

  • An average of 15.00 vessels were owned and operated during the first quarter of 2013 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $8,718 per day.

  • Declared a quarterly dividend of $0.015 per share for the first quarter of 2013 payable on June 14, 2013 to shareholders of record on June 5, 2013. This is the thirty-first consecutive quarterly dividend declared.

1 Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net loss and Adjusted loss per share are not recognized measurements under 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 U.S. GAAP.

Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of Euroseas commented: "During the first four months of 2013, both drybulk and containership markets appeared to be bottoming out. Renewal rates were just slightly higher than fixtures that were made during the last six months; however for expiring charters that had been concluded more than six months ago (mostly our drybulk vessels) renewal rates were lower than the previous ones. We do not see any significant improvement in the near term as deliveries of new vessels are to continue at a high rate eclipsing any demand growth. The current market information for supply and demand trends seems to indicate that in all likelihood a meaningful charter market recovery will have to wait the coming of 2014. Our chartering strategy is focused on keeping our vessels employed ideally with charters of short duration so our vessels could take advantage of any market recovery.

"On the investment front, the depressed charter market is starting to suggest that attractive investment opportunities for both sectors can be made as ship values appear to be bottoming out too. We continue to evaluate such opportunities and we intend to soon acquire additional vessels whilst possibly selling some of our older ships.  During the first quarter, we invested our remaining capital commitment of $6.25 million in Euromar, our joint venture with two private equity firms. Euromar has a young fleet of ten large feeder vessels and is in a position to expand further by acquiring 2-4 vessels worth $30-35 million, thus, benefiting from the current state of the containership market and the expected recovery.

"Faithful to our strategy of paying meaningful dividends, our Board decided to continue paying a dividend of $0.015 per share which represents a yield of about 5.4% on the basis of our stock price on May 15, 2013."

Tasos Aslidis, Chief Financial Officer of Euroseas commented: "The results of the first quarter of 2013 primarily reflect depressed state of the markets and the drydocking expenses that we incurred for the drydocking of 3 of our vessels. If we compare our results for the first quarter of 2013 with the same period of 2012, our net revenues declined by about $3 million and we incurred an additional $1.8 million of drydocking expenses for a total of $4.8 million difference, or about $0.11/ share, which explains the difference in the results between the two periods.

"Total daily vessel operating expenses, including management fees and general and administrative ('G&A') expenses increased by 4.7% on a per vessel per day basis during the first quarter of 2013 as compared to the first quarter of 2012. This increase mainly reflects higher running expenses and higher G&A expenses per vessel because our fleet was reduced by about one vessel during the first quarter of 2013 as compared to the first quarter of 2012. Our drydocking expenses in the first quarter of 2013 were $1,343 per day per vessel a level that was significantly higher than the $22 per day per vessel for same period of 2012. We believe that we continue to maintain one of the lowest operating cost structures amongst the public shipping companies which, we believe, is one of our competitive advantages.

"As of March 31, 2013, our outstanding debt is about $59.5 million versus restricted and unrestricted cash of about $35.9 million. We were in compliance with all our loan covenants."

First Quarter 2013 Results:
For the first quarter of 2013, the Company reported total net revenues of $10.9 million representing a 21.7% decrease over total net revenues of $13.9 million during the first quarter of 2012. The Company reported losses for the period of $4.6 million as compared to a net loss of $9.0 million for the first quarter of 2012. The results for the first quarter of 2013 include a $0.5 million unrealized gain on derivatives as compared to $0.2 million unrealized gain on derivatives and trading securities for the same period of 2012; and a $0.4 million realized loss on derivatives compared to a $0.4 million realized loss in the same period of 2012. Drydocking expenses of $1.8 million during the quarter were higher than the $0.03 million incurred in the first quarter of 2012 and refer to expenses for three of our vessels drydocked in the first quarter of 2013. Depreciation expense for the first quarter of 2013 was $4.3 million compared to $4.5 million during the same period of 2012. On average, 15.00 vessels were owned and operated during the first quarter of 2013 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $8,718 per day compared to 15.92 vessels in the same period of 2012 earning on average $11,258 per day.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2013 was $(0.1) million, a 101.5% decrease from $4.9 million achieved during the first quarter of 2012. Please see below for Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation to net loss and cash flow provided by operating activities.

Basic and diluted loss per share for the first quarter of 2013 was $0.10, calculated on 45,319,605 weighted average number of shares outstanding compared to basic and diluted loss per share of $0.28 for the first quarter of 2012, calculated on 31,910,518 weighted average number of shares outstanding.

Excluding the effect on the loss for the quarter of the unrealized gain and realized losses on derivatives, the adjusted loss per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 would have remained the same at $0.10 per share basic and diluted, compared to the loss, for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 of $0.00 per share basic and diluted. 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 our fleet for the relevant period, as measured by the sum of the number of calendar days each vessel was a part of our 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. The shipping industry uses available days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels were available to generate revenues.
 
(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 days of vessels laid-up.
 
(5) Commercial off-hire days. We define commercial off-hire days as days waiting to find 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. The shipping industry uses voyage days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels actually generate revenues.
 
(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. The shipping industry uses 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 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 a vessel on a per voyage basis. Our method of calculating TCE is consistent with industry standards and is determined by dividing revenue generated from voyage charters 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. 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.
 
(12) Daily vessel operating expenses, which include 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 excluding drydocking expenses. TVOE is the sum of vessel operating expenses and general and administrative expenses. Daily TVOE is calculated by dividing TVOE by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period.
 
(15) Drydocking expenses, which include expenses during drydockings that would 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.

Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation:
Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted EBITDA to represent net earnings / loss before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, gain / loss on derivatives, and gain / loss from the sale of vessels. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income / loss or cash flow from operations, as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is included herein because it is a basis upon which we assess our financial performance and liquidity position and because we believe that it presents useful information to investors regarding a company's ability to service and/or incur indebtedness. 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 Net loss per share Reconciliation:
Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted Net loss to represent net loss before gain / loss in derivatives, unrealized gain on trading securities, and loss on sale of vessel. Adjusted Net loss and Adjusted Net 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 gain / loss on derivatives, and unrealized gain on trading securities, which items may significantly affect results of operations between periods.

Adjusted Net loss and Adjusted Net loss per share do not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or loss per share, as determined by U.S. GAAP. The Company's definition of Adjusted Net loss and Adjusted Net loss per share may not be the same as that used by other companies in the shipping or other industries.
