Management Commentary

Athanasios Feidakis, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Globus Maritime Limited, stated:

"As the year evolves we are pleased with our efforts bearing fruit. In the first half of 2017 we saw our total revenues increase by 63% compared to the same period last year, we were also able to reduce our debt by about 30% again compared to the first half of last year.

"In February we successfully completed a private placement transaction with a group of investors encompassing a $5 million share purchase of Company's common shares plus warrants.

"We are happy to see our statement of financial position at a healthier level after almost two years.

"The recovery of benchmark dry bulk rates in the last few months has allowed us to enjoy hiring out our vessels at significantly higher rates than the previous year.

"In late 2016 we decided to increase our spending on the general maintenance of the fleet, in order to better serve our clients and improve utilization rates. We expected an initial increase in costs but also expected these costs to gradually normalize and drop, as we are actually seeing now.

"We are hoping to see a further improvement of the market fundamentals in the medium term future. We remain cautiously optimistic, and are following the market closely in our undertaking to best serve our clients and shareholders."

Voyage revenues
During the three-month period ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, our Voyage revenues reached $3.6 million and $2 million respectively. The 80% increase in Voyage revenues was mainly attributed to the increase in the average time charter rates achieved by our vessels during the second quarter of 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. Daily Time Charter Equivalent rate (TCE) for the second quarter of 2017 was $7,173 per vessel per day against $4,135 per vessel per day during the same period in 2016 corresponding to an increase of 73%.

Voyage expenses
Voyage expenses reached $0.4 million during the second quarter of 2017 compared to $0.2 million during the same period last year. Voyage expenses include commissions on revenues, port and other voyage expenses and bunker expenses. Bunker expenses mainly refer to the cost of bunkers consumed during periods that our vessels are travelling seeking employment. Voyage expenses for the first half of 2017 and 2016 are analyzed as follows:

Interest expense and finance costs
Interest expense and finance costs reached $0.5 million for the second quarter of 2017 compared to $0.7 during the same period in 2016.

Gain from sale of subsidiary
In March 2016, the Company entered into an agreement with Commerzbank to sell the shares of Kelty Marine Ltd., to an unaffiliated third party and apply the total net proceeds from the sale towards the respective loan facility. Based on certain financial conditions agreed beforehand with the Bank this resulted in the remaining principal amount of the loan to be written off. The financial effect from the sale of Kelty Marine Ltd. resulted to a gain of $2.3 million.

Interest expense and finance costs
Interest expense and finance costs reached $1 million during the first half of 2017 compared to $1.5 during the same period in 2016. The decrease is mainly attributed to the conversion of $20 million of outstanding principal of two loans to 20 million shares, as described in the Share and Warrant Purchase Agreement that we entered on February 8, 2017.

Liquidity and capital resources

Net cash used in operating activities for the three month period ended June 30, 2017 was $0.1 million compared to $0.3 million during the respective period in 2016.

Net cash used in operating activities for the six month period ended June 30, 2017 was $1 million compared to $2.7 million during the respective period in 2016.

As of June 30, 2017 and 2016 we and our vessel-owning subsidiaries had outstanding borrowings under our Loan agreement with Commerzbank AG, the Loan agreement with DVB Bank SE, the Loan agreement with HSH Nordbank AG and our Firment and Silaner Credit Facilities of an aggregate of $44.3 million and $63.7 million respectively gross of unamortized debt discount.

Amended agreements with the banks
In March 2017 the Company agreed the main terms for the restructure of its loan agreements with HSH Nordbank AG and DVB Bank SE. By these agreements the Company was successful in achieving waivers and relaxations on its loan covenants as well as defer instalment loan payments due in 2017.

Share and warrant purchase agreement
As previously reported, the Company on February 8, 2017 entered into a Share and Warrant Purchase Agreement pursuant to which it sold for $5 million an aggregate of 5 million of its common shares, par value $0.004 per share and warrants to purchase 25 million of its common shares at a price of $1.60 per share to a number of investors in a private placement. These securities were issued in transactions exempt from registration under the Securities Act. On February 9, 2017, the Company entered into a registration rights agreement with those purchasers providing them with certain rights relating to registration under the Securities Act of the Shares and the common shares underlying the Warrants.

In connection with the closing of the February 2017 private placement, the Company also entered into two loan amendment agreements with existing lenders.

One loan amendment agreement was entered into by the Company with Firment Trading Limited ("Firment"), an affiliate of the Company's chairman, and the lender of the Firment Credit Facility, which then had an outstanding principal amount of $18,524. Firment released an amount equal to $16,885 (but left an amount equal to $1,639 outstanding, which continued to accrue interest under the Firment Credit Facility as though it were principal) of the Firment Credit Facility and the Company issued to Firment Shipping Inc., an affiliate of Firment, 16,885,000 common shares and a warrant to purchase 6,230,580 common shares at a price of $1.60 per share. Subsequent to the closing of the February 2017 private placement, Globus repaid the outstanding amount on the Firment Credit Facility in its entirety. The Firment Credit Facility expired on April 12, 2017.

The other loan amendment agreement was entered into by the Company with Silaner Investments Limited ("Silaner"), an affiliate of the Company's chairman, and the lender of the Silaner Credit Facility. Silaner released an amount equal to the outstanding principal of $3,115 (but left an amount equal to $74 outstanding, which continued to accrue interest under the Silaner Credit Facility as though it were principal) of the Silaner Credit Facility and the Company issued to Firment Shipping Inc., an affiliate of Silaner, 3,115,000 common shares and a warrant to purchase 1,149,437 common shares at a price of $1.60 per share. Subsequent to the closing of the February 2017 private placement, Globus repaid the outstanding amount on the Silaner Credit Facility in its entirety. The Silaner Credit Facility remains available to the Company until January 12, 2018.

Each of the above mentioned warrants are exercisable for 24 months after their respective issuance. Under the terms of the warrants, all warrant holders (other than Firment Shipping Inc., which has no such restriction in its warrants) may not exercise their warrants to the extent such exercise would cause such warrant holder, together with its affiliates and attribution parties, to beneficially own a number of common shares which would exceed 4.99% (which may be increased, but not to exceed 9.99%) of the Company's then outstanding common shares immediately following such exercise, excluding for purposes of such determination common shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants which have not been exercised. This provision does not limit a warrant holder from acquiring up to 4.99% of the Company's common shares, selling all of their common shares, and re-acquiring up to 4.99% of the Company's common shares.

Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA represents net (loss)/earnings before interest and finance costs net, gains or losses from the change in fair value of derivative financial instruments, foreign exchange gains or losses, income taxes, depreciation, depreciation of dry-docking costs, amortization of fair value of time charter acquired, impairment and gains or losses on sale of vessels. Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to total comprehensive income/(loss) or cash generated from operations, as determined by IFRS, and our calculation of Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under IFRS.

Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA is included herein because it is a basis upon which we assess our financial performance and because we believe that it presents useful information to investors regarding a company's ability to service and/or incur indebtedness and it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry.

Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under IFRS. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;

  • Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA does not reflect the interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;

  • Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA does not reflect changes in or cash requirements for our working capital needs; and

  • Other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA should not be considered a measure of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business.

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA to total comprehensive (loss) and net cash (used in)/ generated from operating activities for the periods presented:

Notes:

(1)

Ownership days are the aggregate number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet has been owned by us.

(2)

Available days are the number of ownership days less the aggregate number of days that our vessels are off-hire due to scheduled repairs or repairs under guarantee, vessel upgrades or special surveys.

(3)

Operating days are the number of available days less the aggregate number of days that the vessels are off-hire due to any reason, including unforeseen circumstances but excluding days during which vessels are seeking employment.

(4)

We calculate fleet utilization by dividing the number of operating days during a period by the number of available days during the period.

(5)

Average number of vessels is measured by the sum of the number of days each vessel was part of our fleet during a relevant period divided by the number of calendar days in such period.

(6)

TCE rates are our voyage revenues less net revenues from our bareboat charters less voyage expenses during a period divided by the number of our available days during the period excluding bareboat charter days, which is consistent with industry standards. TCE is a measure not in accordance with GAAP.

(7)

We calculate daily vessel operating expenses by dividing vessel operating expenses by ownership days for the relevant time period excluding bareboat charter days.
