Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. Reports Financial Results for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2020

·19 min read

NEWPORT, R.I., Nov. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. ("Pangaea" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: PANL), a global provider of comprehensive maritime logistics solutions, announced today its results for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. (PRNewsfoto/Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd.)
Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. (PRNewsfoto/Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd.)

3rd Quarter Highlights

  • Net income attributable to Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. was $7.6 million for three months ended September 30, 2020 as compared to $8.3 million of net income for the same period of 2019.

  • Diluted net income per share was $0.17 for three months ended September 30, 2020 as compared to earnings per share of $0.19 for the same period of 2019.

  • Pangaea's TCE rates were $13,316 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and $15,915 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The market average for the third quarter of 2020 was approximately $10,286, giving the Company an overall average premium over market rates of approximately $3,030 or 29%.

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $15.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to $18.0 million for the same period of 2019.

  • At the end of the quarter, Pangaea had $48.1 million in cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents.

  • The Company acquired an additional one-third equity interest in its partially-owned consolidated subsidiary Nordic Bulk Holding Company Ltd. (NBHC), which owns six modern 1-A ice-class panamax bulk vessels, increasing its equity interest to 66.7%.

Ed Coll, Chief Executive Officer of Pangaea Logistics Solutions, commented:

"The third quarter was an active one for us from an operating and investing perspective. We deployed our industry leading ice class capabilities to meet our clients' needs during the summer arctic shipping season. Our operating fleet expanded from an average of 40 ships in the second quarter to 52 ships in the third quarter, which shows our unique chartering strategy in practice as we limited our exposure to turbulent markets by redelivering vessels earlier in the year and replacing them when needed to meet client demand. Our achieved TCE continued to outperform the market average by 29%. Furthermore, as we previously announced, we increased our ownership in our six ice-class 1A panamax vessels from 33% to 67%, solidifying our position in the strategically important ice class sector. We took additional steps to reduce the average age of our fleet as we completed the sale of the m/v Bulk Beothuk in the 3rd quarter."

Mr. Coll added, "Collectively we are encouraged by the steps we've taken as we focus on niches where we add value and in turn enhance shareholder value. Furthermore, as we look ahead, we continue to watch the rapidly changing conditions caused by COVID-19, from changes to our working environment to rotating crews aboard our vessels. We again extend our sincere gratitude to our people and their families for the hardships they are facing, ashore and aboard our vessels. Our results year over year remain strong. In the longer term we are encouraged by the decline in newbuilding orders and its impact on the dry bulk industry, however we expect, and have prepared for, continued uncertainty in our markets over the next few quarters."

Results for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019

Total revenue was $103.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared with $118.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The 13% decrease in revenues was mainly attributed to the decrease in the average time charter rates achieved by our vessels during the third quarter of 2020 compared to the same period in 2019.

Time Charter Equivalent rate (TCE) was $13,316 per day for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to an average of $15,915 per day for the same period in 2019. However, the achieved premium over the average market TCE rate increased by $3,030 per day or 29% for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to 16% in the same period in 2019. The total number of shipping days remained relatively consistent with a 2% increase to 4,734 days in the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to 4,636 for the same period in 2019, predominantly due to the increase in voyage days.

Liquidity and Cash Flows

Cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents were $48.1 million as of September 30, 2020, compared with $53.1 million on December 31, 2019.

At September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had working capital of $17.3 million and $37.1 million, respectively. Net cash provided by operating activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $22.4 million compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $23.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Net cash used in investing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was $6.0 million and $48.2 million, respectively. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company received sale proceeds of $11.7 million from the sale of three vessels and paid $15.0 million for the acquisition of an additional one-third interest in NBHC.

Net cash used in financing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $21.4 million compared to net cash provided by financing activities of $5.3 million during the same period of 2019. The Company exercised an early buy-out of one of its finance leases for a purchase price of $5.5 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to proceeds received of $14.0 million from a finance lease during the same period of 2019.

Subsequent Event

NBHC Loan Refinancing

On November 2, 2020, NBHC signed a nonbinding term sheet with a new lender pursuant to which the new lender has proposed to provide NBHC a loan for up to $18.0 million with a term of 84 months at an interest rate of 2.95% per annum. The borrower will make 28 quarterly payments in arrears followed by one final installment of $4.4 million payable on the 7th anniversary of the drawdown date, no later than December 31, 2020. The Loan would be secured by a first lien on m/v Nordic Odyssey and m/v Nordic Orion. The Company intends to use a portion of the proceeds of the loan to repay the outstanding balance of $10.6 million for the Nordic Odyssey and Nordic Orion loan facilities which matures on December 31, 2020.

INFORMATION ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES. As used herein, "GAAP" refers to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. To supplement our consolidated financial statements prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, this earnings release discusses non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net revenue and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA. This is considered a non-GAAP financial measure as defined in Rule 101 of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's historical or future performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

We use non-GAAP financial measures for internal financial and operational decision making purposes and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons of the performance and results of operations of our core business. Our management believes that non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the performance of our core business by excluding charges that are not incurred in the normal course of business. Non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal planning and comparisons to our historical performance and liquidity. We believe certain non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors as they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making and are used by our institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the performance and operational results of our core business.

Gross Profit. Gross profit represents total revenue less net transportation and service revenue and less vessel depreciation and amortization.

Net transportation and service revenue. Net transportation and service revenue represents total revenue less the total direct costs of transportation and services, which includes charter hire, voyage and vessel operating expenses. Net transportation and service revenue is included because it is used by management and certain investors to measure performance by comparison to other logistic service providers. Net transportation and service revenue is not an item recognized by the generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or U.S. GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, or any other indicator of a company's operating performance required by U.S. GAAP. Pangaea's definition of net transportation and service revenue used here may not be comparable to an operating measure used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS. Adjusted EBITDA represents income or loss from operations before depreciation, amortization and, when applicable, loss on sale and leaseback of vessel, loss on impairment of vessels, stock-based compensation and certain non-recurring charges. Earnings per share represents net income divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Adjusted earnings per share represents net income attributable to Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. plus, when applicable, loss on sale of vessel, loss on sale and leaseback of vessel, loss on impairment of vessel, unrealized gains and losses on derivative instruments, and certain non-recurring charges, divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock.

There are limitations related to the use of net revenue versus income from operations, adjusted EBITDA versus income from operations, and adjusted EPS versus EPS calculated in accordance with GAAP. In particular, Pangaea's definition of adjusted EBITDA used here are not comparable to EBITDA.

The table set forth above provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures presented during the period to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
