The Spin-off
Euroseas Ltd. (“Euroseas”) contributed to the Company seven subsidiaries comprising its drybulk fleet of six vessels, one Ultramax and two Kamsarmax vessels built between 2016 and 2018, and three Japanese-built Panamax vessels built between 2000 and 2004. The Company was spun-off from Euroseas Ltd. on May 30, 2018. Comparative period results for the full year 2018 reflect the results of the carve-out operations of the seven subsidiaries that were contributed to the Company from Euroseas.

Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of EuroDry commented: “During the fourth quarter of 2019, the drybulk market experienced a decline in rates which in some cases exceeded a 20% drop compared to third quarter’s rates. This decline in rates was not fully reflected in the net revenues and time charter equivalent rate of the fourth quarter of 2019, due to the fact that certain vessels were employed under long-term time charters fixed in prior periods and certain vessels were fixed at favourable rates during the third quarter of 2019 running through the fourth quarter of 2019. However, the market continued declining during January and February of 2020 as, on the top of trade uncertainties which by December 2019 seemed to be subsiding, new concerns were added regarding the effects of the coronavirus epidemic on the world growth and trade.

The positive by-product of the uncertainties in the marketplace is the limited numbers of new orders placed and the declining orderbook as a percentage of the fleet. Thus, we continue to believe that drybulk markets could offer significant opportunities for sizable returns in the medium term.

In the capital markets, we continue to pursue opportunities to merge with other fleets to grow the company providing a platform for consolidation. At the same time, we are pursuing initiatives to increase EuroDry’s visibility amongst investors. We believe that such increased visibility with investors will help reduce the significant discount to the NAV our stock trades at, thus, offering additional upside to our shareholders and new investors alike.”

Tasos Aslidis, Chief Financial Officer of EuroDry commented: “The operating results of the fourth quarter of 2019 reflect the average level of charter rates our vessels enjoyed during the quarter which was similar to the average time charter equivalent rate our vessels earned in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Total daily vessel operating expenses, including management fees, general and administrative expenses, but excluding drydocking costs, increased approximately 2.7% during the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to the same quarter of last year, while for the full year 2019 we had a decrease of approximately 7%. This decrease is mainly due to the lower general and administrative expenses incurred in the twelve months of 2019 compared to the same period of 2018. In the same period of 2018 general and administrative expenses were higher due to expenses incurred for the Spin-off and the operation of the Company as a separate public company. As always, we want to emphasize that cost control remains a key component of our strategy.

Adjusted EBITDA during the fourth quarter of 2019 was $3.8 compared to $3.5 million achieved for the fourth quarter of last year. As of December 31, 2019, our outstanding debt (excluding the unamortized loan fees) was $56.9 million versus restricted and unrestricted cash of approximately $9.1 million.”

Fourth Quarter 2019 Results:
For the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company reported total net revenues of $7.6 million representing a 8.8% increase over total net revenues of $7.0 million during the fourth quarter of 2018 which was the result of the increased average number of vessels in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to the same period of 2018. The Company reported net income for the period of $1.4 million and net income attributable to common shareholders of $1.0 million, as compared to net income of $0.8 million and net income attributable to common shareholders of $0.6 million for the same period of 2018. Depreciation expenses for the fourth quarter of 2019 amounted to $1.6 million compared to $1.5 million for the same period of 2018.

Interest and other financing costs for the fourth quarter of 2019 amounted to $0.8 million compared to $1.1 million for the same period of 2018. Interest during the fourth quarter of 2019 was lower due to lower debt during the period as compared to the same period of last year.

On average, 7.0 vessels were owned and operated during the fourth quarter of 2019 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $12,439 per day compared to 6.3 vessels in the same period of 2018 earning on average $12,513 per day. 

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $3.8 million compared to $3.5 million achieved during the fourth quarter of 2018.

Basic and diluted earnings per share attributable to common shareholders for the fourth quarter of 2019 were $0.45 calculated on 2,261,103 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding, compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.25 for the fourth quarter of 2018, calculated on 2,240,794 basic and 2,250,946 diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding. 

Excluding the effect on the earnings attributable to common shareholders for the quarter of the unrealized loss / (gain) on derivatives, the adjusted earnings attributable to common shareholders for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 would have been $0.43 per share basic and diluted compared to adjusted earnings of $0.32 per share basic and $0.31 per share diluted for the quarter ended December 31, 2018. Usually, security analysts do not include the above item in their published estimates of earnings per share.

Full Year 2019 Results:
For the full year of 2019, the Company reported total net revenues of $27.2 million representing a 11.0% increase over total net revenues of $24.5 million during the twelve months of 2018, as a result of the increased average number of vessels in the Company’s fleet partly offset by the decrease in the average time charter equivalent rate our vessels earned in the twelve months of 2019 compared to the same period of 2018. The Company reported net income for the period of $0.02 million and a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $1.9 million, as compared to net income of $1.1 million and net income attributable to common shareholders of $0.6 million, for the twelve months of 2018. Vessel operating expenses were $10.8 million for the twelve months of 2019 as compared to $9.2 million for the same period of 2018, mainly due to the increased average number of vessels operated. Depreciation expenses for the twelve months of 2019 were $6.5 million compared to $5.4 million during the same period of 2018. Interest and other financing costs for the twelve months of 2019 amounted to $3.5 million compared to $2.9 million for the same period of 2018. This increase is due to higher average outstanding debt in the twelve months of 2019 compared to 2018 and due to interest capitalized in 2018 during the construction period of m/v Ekaterini.

On average, 7.0 vessels were owned and operated during the twelve months of 2019 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $11,190 per day compared to 5.7 vessels in the same period of 2018 earning on average $12,484 per day. In the twelve months of 2019, two vessels underwent special survey and one vessel underwent intermediate survey for a total cost of $1.7 million, as compared to two vessels that underwent special survey and one vessel that underwent intermediate survey in the twelve months of 2018 for a total cost of $1.5 million.

Adjusted EBITDA for the twelve months of 2019 was $10.3 million compared to $9.4 million achieved during the twelve months of 2018.

Basic and diluted loss per share attributable to common shareholders for the twelve months of 2019 was $0.85, calculated on 2,251,439 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding compared to earnings of $0.25 per share basic and diluted for the twelve months of 2018, calculated on 2,232,821 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding.

Excluding the effect on the loss attributable to common shareholders for the year of the unrealized (gain) / loss on derivatives, the adjusted loss per share attributable to common shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2019 would have been $0.69 compared to adjusted earnings of $0.25 per share basic and diluted for 2018. As previously mentioned, 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 incl. 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, pool agreements 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:
EuroDry Ltd. considers Adjusted EBITDA to represent net income before interest, income taxes, depreciation, unrealized loss on Forward Freight Agreements (FFAs) and (gain) / loss on interest rate swaps. 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, unrealized (gain) / loss on FFAs 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 income / (loss) and Adjusted earnings / (loss) per share Reconciliation:

EuroDry Ltd. considers Adjusted net income / (loss) to represent net income / (loss) before unrealized gain / loss on derivatives. Adjusted net income / (loss) and Adjusted earnings / (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 / loss on derivatives, which items may significantly affect results of operations between periods. Adjusted net income / (loss) and Adjusted earnings / (loss) per share do not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income / (loss) or earnings / (loss) per share, as determined by GAAP. The Company's definition of Adjusted net income / (loss) and Adjusted earnings / (loss) per share may not be the same as that used by other companies in the shipping or other industries.
