Teekay Tankers Ltd. (Teekay Tankers or the Company) today reported its results for the three months ended June 30, 2012. During the second quarter of 2012, the Company generated $11.8 million in Cash Available for Distribution(2), down from $13.6 million in the first quarter of 2012. On August 8th, 2012, Teekay Tankers declared a dividend of $0.11 per share(3) for the second quarter of 2012, which will be paid on August 27, 2012 to all shareholders of record on August 20, 2012.

Teekay Tankers' policy is to pay a variable quarterly dividend equal to its Cash Available for Distribution, subject to any reserves its board of directors may from time to time determine are required. Since the Company's initial public offering in December 2007, it has declared a dividend in 19 consecutive quarters, which now totals $7.135 per share on a cumulative basis (including the $0.11 per share dividend to be paid on August 27, 2012).

 

1. Adjusted net income attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers is a
non-GAAP financial measure. Please refer to Appendix A to this release
for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure as used in this release to
the most directly comparable financial measure under United States
generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).
2. Cash Available for Distribution represents net income (loss), plus
depreciation and amortization, unrealized losses from derivatives, non-
cash items and any write-offs of other non-recurring items, less
unrealized gains from derivatives and net income attributable to the
historical results of vessels acquired by the Company from Teekay
Corporation, for the period when these vessels were owned and operated
by Teekay Corporation.
3. Please refer to Appendix B to this release for the calculation of the
cash dividend amount.

Summary of Recent Transactions

In June 2012, Teekay Tankers completed the previously announced acquisition from Teekay Corporation of 13 double hull conventional tankers, including seven crude oil tankers and six product tankers. The acquisition of 10 of the 13 vessels was completed on June 15, 2012 and the remaining three vessels (LR2 product tankers) were acquired on June 26, 2012. The total purchase price of all 13 vessels, including related time-charter out contracts, assumption of certain debt facilities and an interest rate swap, was $454.2 million.

In addition to nine vessels acquired from Teekay Corporation with existing fixed-rate time-charters, during the second quarter of 2012, Teekay Tankers time-chartered out two of its owned Aframax tankers and concurrently time-chartered in one Aframax tanker, as described below:

Time-charter Out of Existing Owned Aframaxes

 

-- Erik Spirit time-chartered out for a period of 12 months at a time-
charter rate of $13,900 per day, which commenced on July 12, 2012.
-- Kanata Spirit time-chartered out for a period of 12 months at a time-
charter rate of $14,000 per day, which commenced on July 1, 2012.

Time-charter In of Aframax from Third Party

 

-- Star Lady chartered-in for a period of six months at a charter-in rate
of $11,750 per day with options to extend up to an additional 18 months
at escalating rates, which commenced on July 25, 2012.

"After the completion of our 13-vessel acquisition from Teekay Corporation in June, we continue to focus on managing employment of our significantly expanded fleet to achieve the right balance of downside protection through fixed-rate coverage and upside through spot market exposure," commented Bruce Chan, Chief Executive Officer of Teekay Tankers. "With energy agencies such as the Energy Information Administration recently downgrading their oil demand forecasts for 2013 due to a softening global economic outlook, our ability to leverage Teekay Corporation's chartering relationships to secure favorable time-charter out contracts has become an even greater competitive advantage. In addition to the nine vessels acquired from Teekay Corporation with existing time-charters, we recently time-chartered out two additional Aframaxes for respective 12 month periods. One of these out-charters, when paired with an additional recently chartered-in Aframax, will effectively lock-in approximately $2,000 per day of cash flows for the initial six-month time-charter in period, and when combined with the 13-vessel acquisition from Teekay Corporation, will increase our total fixed-cover for the 12 months commencing July 1, 2012 from 29 percent to 47 percent. In addition, our spot-traded Aframax, Suezmax and LR2 vessels continue to trade in Teekay's commercial tonnage pools, which provide the scale benefits of a significantly larger fleet and have historically out-performed the market."

Mr. Chan added, "Through this period of seasonal and cyclical spot tanker market weakness, Teekay Tankers remains financially well-positioned with over $386 million of available liquidity and no significant debt maturities until 2017."

Estimated Third Quarter 2012 Dividend

The table below presents the estimated cash dividend per share for the quarter ending September 30, 2012 at various average rates earned by the Company's spot tanker fleet and reflects the estimated contribution from its existing fixed-rate, time-charter contracts and estimated reserves for scheduled vessel dry dockings and debt principal repayments. These estimates are based on current assumptions and actual dividends may differ materially from those included in the following table. In addition, the Company's Aframax and Suezmax spot rates earned during the third quarter of 2012 may not necessarily equal industry averages:

shares.

Tanker Market

Crude tanker rates softened during the second quarter of 2012 due to a combination of tanker supply growth, reduced tanker demand and seasonal factors. According to the International Energy Agency, global oil demand declined by 0.6 million barrels per day (mb/d) during the second quarter due to refinery turnarounds in both the Atlantic and Pacific basins. A decline in non-OECD oil stockpiling following heavy build ups during the first quarter also reduced demand for crude tankers. The onset of oilfield maintenance in the North Sea and a strike by Norwegian oil workers also negatively impacted crude tanker rates during the second quarter.

Long Range 2 (LR2) product tanker rates strengthened considerably during the second quarter of 2012 and as of July had risen to their highest level since the third quarter of 2010. The recovery in LR2 rates was driven by an increase in Asian naphtha imports from the Middle East and Europe coupled with reduced competition from uncoated Aframax newbuildings for gasoil cargoes loading in the Far East.

The global tanker fleet grew by a net 11.0 million deadweight (mdwt), or 2.3 percent, through the first half of 2012 compared to fleet growth of 15.6 mdwt, or 3.5 percent, for the same period of 2011. Fleet growth accelerated during the second quarter due to an increase in vessel deliveries and a decrease in scrapping compared to the first quarter. The decline in scrapping partially reflects the reduction in scrap prices, which as of end-of-July 2012 averaged $380 per lightweight tonne (ldt) compared to $480 per ldt at the beginning of the year.

The outlook for the global economy has weakened in recent weeks due to ongoing stress in the Euro zone and slower growth in the US and China. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) recently downgraded its outlook for global economic growth in 2012 and 2013 to 3.5 percent and 3.9 percent, respectively, (from 3.6 percent and 4.1 percent in their previous forecast). As a result, the Energy Information Administration downgraded its global oil demand growth forecast for 2013 to 0.9 mb/d from 1.5 mb/d forecasted at the start of the year. This is expected to translate into slower tanker demand growth during 2013 than was previously expected, although a simultaneous slowdown in tanker supply growth could help offset this weaker demand outlook.

Financial Summary

The Company reported adjusted net income attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers(1) (as detailed in Appendix A to this release) of $0.9 million, or $0.01 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared to $4.3 million, or $0.07 per share, for the same period in the prior year. The reduction in adjusted net income attributable to the shareholders of Teekay Tankers is primarily the result of lower average realized tanker rates for our spot and time-charter Aframax fleets during the second quarter of 2012, compared to the same period in the prior year, partially offset by higher average realized tanker rates for our spot Suezmax fleet during the second quarter of 2012, compared to the same period in the prior year. Moreover, in the quarter ended June 30, 2012, two Suezmax vessels which were on time-charter out contracts at $30,500 per day, expired and commenced trading in the spot Suezmax pool. Adjusted net income attributable to the shareholders of Teekay Tankers excludes a number of specific items which had the net effect of increasing net income attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers by $0.2 million, or $nil per share, and decreasing net income attributable to the shareholders of Teekay Tankers by $2.9 million, or $0.05 per share, for the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, as detailed in Appendix A to this release. Including these items, the Company reported, on a GAAP basis, net income attributable to the shareholders of Teekay Tankers of $1.1 million, or $0.01 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared to $1.4 million, or $0.02 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. Net revenues(2) were $50.9 million and $56.6 million for the second quarters of 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Adjusted net income attributable to the shareholders of Teekay Tankers (as detailed in Appendix A to this release) for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $4.0 million, or $0.05 per share, compared to $9.9 million, or $0.17 per share, for the same period last year. The reduction in the adjusted net income attributable to the shareholders of Teekay Tankers was primarily due to lower average realized tanker rates for our spot and time-charter Aframax fleets during the first half of 2012, compared to the same period in the prior year, which was partially offset by higher average realized tanker rates for our spot Suezmax fleet during the first half of 2012, compared to the same period in the prior year. Adjusted net income attributable to the shareholders of Teekay Tankers excludes a number of specific items which had the net effect of increasing net income attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers by $1.2 million, or $0.02 per share, and decreasing net income attributable to the shareholders of Teekay Tankers by $1.4 million, or $0.03 per share, for the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, as detailed in Appendix A to this release. Including these items, the Company reported, on a GAAP basis, net income attributable to the shareholders of Teekay Tankers of $5.2 million, or $0.07 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $8.5 million, or $0.14 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2011. Net revenues(2) were $104.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $112.7 million for same period last year.

For accounting purposes, the Company is required to recognize the changes in the fair value of its derivative instruments in the statements of (loss) income. This method of accounting does not affect the Company's cash flows or the calculation of Cash Available for Distribution, but results in the recognition of unrealized gains or losses in the statements of (loss) income.

The Company's financial statements for the current and prior periods include historical results of the 13 vessels acquired by the Company from Teekay Corporation, referred to herein as the Dropdown Predecessor, for the periods when these vessels were owned and operated by Teekay Corporation.

 

1. Adjusted net income attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers is a
non-GAAP financial measure. Please refer to Appendix A included in this
release for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to the most
directly comparable financial measure under United States generally
accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and information about specific
items affecting net income that are typically excluded by securities
analysts in their published estimates of the Company's financial
results.
2. Net revenues represents revenues less voyage expenses. Net revenues is a
non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors to measure the
financial performance of shipping companies. Please see the Company's
website at www.teekaytankers.com for a reconciliation of net revenues to
the most directly comparable financial measure under GAAP.

i. One chartered-in Aframax, the Star Lady, is currently time-chartered in
for a six-month period ending in December 2012, with options to extend
the time-charter in period for additional periods of six and 12
months,respectively, at escalating rates.

The fleet list above includes a very large crude carrier (VLCC) newbuilding that Teekay Tankers owns through a 50/50 joint venture it entered into with Wah Kwong Maritime Transport Holdings Limited in October 2010. The newbuilding is scheduled to deliver in April 2013, at which time it will commence a time-charter out to a major Chinese shipping company for a period of five years. The time-charter includes a fixed floor rate, coupled with a profit-sharing component.

In July 2012, the Company time-chartered out the Aframax tankers, Erik Spirit and Kanata Spirit, and concurrently time-chartered in the Aframax tanker, Star Lady, as described above under "Summary of Recent Transactions".

In July 2010, the Company made loans secured by first-priority ship mortgages on two VLCC newbuildings, the income of which the Company believes approximates that of two vessels trading on fixed-rate bareboat charters. Including the income earned from these loans, the Company expects to have fixed-rate coverage of approximately 48 percent for the 12 months commencing July 1, 2012.

Liquidity

As of June 30, 2012, the Company had total liquidity of $386.1 million (which consisted of $18.6 million of cash and $367.5 million in an undrawn revolving credit facility), compared to total liquidity of $357.0 million as at March 31, 2012.

1. Results for 13 conventional tankers for the periods prior to their
acquisition by the Company when they were owned and operating under
Teekay Corporation, are referred to as the Dropdown Predecessor.
Dropdown Predecessor amounts included in the financial results are
summarized for the respective periods in Appendix A. The amounts
included in this release related to the Dropdown Predecessor for the 13
conventional tankers are preliminary, and will be finalized for
inclusion in the Company's Form 6-K for the second quarter of 2012. Any
revisions to the preliminary Dropdown Predecessor figures are expected
to impact only the accounting for periods prior to the dates the
Dropdown Predecessor described above was acquired by the Company, and
therefore to have no effect on the adjusted net income or Cash Available
for Distribution of the Company for any period presented in the table
above, including the second quarter of 2012.
2. Includes realized losses relating to interest rate swaps of $2.4
million, $2.4 million and $2.6 million for the three months ended June
30, 2012, March 31, 2012 and June 30, 2011, respectively and $4.8
million and $33.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and
June 30, 2011, respectively.
3. Earnings per share attributable to shareholders of Teekay Tankers is
determined by dividing (a) net (loss) income of the Company after
adjusting the amount of net (loss) income attributable to the Dropdown
Predecessor by (b) the weighted-average number of shares outstanding
during the applicable period.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This release contains forward-looking statements (as defined in Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) which reflect management's current views with respect to certain future events and performance, including statements regarding: tanker market fundamentals, including the balance of supply and demand in the tanker market, and spot tanker charter rates; the ability to leverage Teekay Corporations chartering relationships to secure new time-charter contracts; the Company's financial position and ability to acquire additional assets; the Company's ability to manage its significantly expanded fleet; estimated dividends per share for the quarter ending September 30, 2012 based on various spot tanker rates earned by the Company; the Company's fixed coverage for the 12-month period commencing July 1,2012; anticipated dry docking costs and debt principal repayments; and the Company's ability to generate surplus cash flow and pay dividends. The following factors are among those that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements, which involve risks and uncertainties, and that should be considered in evaluating any such statement: changes in the production of or demand for oil; changes in trading patterns significantly affecting overall vessel tonnage requirements; lower than expected level of tanker scrapping; changes in applicable industry laws and regulations and the timing of implementation of new laws and regulations; the potential for early termination of short- or medium-term contracts and inability of the Company to renew or replace short- or medium-term contracts; changes in interest rates and the capital markets; future issuances of the Company's common stock; the ability of the owner of the two VLCC newbuildings securing the two first-priority ship mortgage loans to continue to meet its payment obligations; increases in the Company's expenses, including any dry-docking expenses and associated off-hire days; the ability of Teekay Tankers' Board of directors to establish cash reserves for the prudent conduct of Teekay Tankers' business or otherwise; failure of Teekay Tankers Board of Directors and its Conflicts Committee to accept future acquisitions of vessels that may be offered by Teekay Corporation or third parties; and other factors discussed in Teekay Tankers' filings from time to time with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. The Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect any change in the Company's expectations with respect thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.
