Our TCE guidance for the second quarter of 2021 includes certain conversions (5 vessels) of index-linked charters to fixed for the 3-month period ending on June 30, 2021 which were concluded in the fourth quarter of 2020 as part of our freight hedging strategy. The following table provides the break-down:

Stamatis Tsantanis, the Company’s Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, stated:

“Since the beginning of 2021, the Capesize market has been increasing steadily to multi-year highs. During the first quarter of the year, we successfully concluded a number of transformative transactions that are further shaping Seanergy’s future as a prominent shipping enterprise.

Concerning our results for the first quarter of 2021, our daily TCE stood at about $16,219, marking an increase of 91% compared to the TCE of the first quarter of 2020. Net revenues were $20.4 million, increased by 53% from the first quarter of 2020, while adjusted EBITDA increased by about 483% attesting to our significant operating leverage. Net result for the quarter was a loss of $1.32 million, which includes significant non-cash amortization charges of financing expenses associated with our loans and convertible notes and other non-cash items of approximately $2.8 million.

Our strategic initiatives in 2021 have been aimed at (i) growing our fleet at an opportune time in a rising market environment, (ii) further strengthening our balance sheet, (iii) further reducing our cost base and specifically our interest expenses, and (iv) positioning commercially our existing and newly acquired vessels to benefit from the improving market conditions.

More specifically, we agreed to acquire five high quality Japanese Capesize vessels of an average age of approximately 10 years, with a total investment of $134.3 million and prompt deliveries. Our new acquisitions are funded with cash at hand and low-levered loan facilities. On a fully delivered basis, our fleet will increase by approximately 50% to 2.8 million DWT of cargo carrying capacity.

In addition, we have delevered our balance sheet considerably through the early retirement of higher-cost senior and junior facilities. In Q1 2021 we have reduced our debt levels by $38.8 million.

On the commercial front, we have entered into four new period chartering agreements with prominent Capesize charterers. Firstly, we expanded our business relationship with Cargill with a five-year period chartering agreement for the M/V Flagship, which also entails an important environmental angle since the charterer will fund the installation of certain energy-saving devices onboard the vessel. In addition, we initiated period agreements with prominent names like Anglo American and NYK Line, successfully expanding our client base.

As a result, the majority of our operating fleet will continue to be employed under index-linked time-charters. This will have a direct reflection on our revenue stream which is expected to strengthen considerably in the remainder of the year.

Regarding our market, in the first months of 2021 we are experiencing a steady and sustainable market increase, compared to the seasonality patterns of the previous years. In the second quarter of 2021 so far, Capesize rates have ranged between $20,000 and $45,000 per day, levels not seen for over a decade. The booming commodities cycle in combination with the most favorable vessel-supply fundamentals of the Capesize sector in some time, and the 17-year low vessel orderbook, point towards a strong Capesize market for the years to come.

Finally, I wish to note that we expect that our recent corporate developments in combination with the strong trend in our market, will reflect very positively on our earnings and free cash flow generation for the remainder of the year and consequently shareholders’ value. I strongly believe that Seanergy is in an optimal position to better capitalize on the strong market fundamentals. We remain committed to delivering additional value to our shareholders.”

TCE estimates include certain floating (index) to fixed rate conversions concluded in previous periods. For vessels on index-linked T/Cs, the TCE assumed for the remaining operating days is equal to the FFA rate for the respective period. Spot estimates are provided using the load-to-discharge method of accounting. Load-to-discharge accounting recognizes revenues over fewer days as opposed to the discharge-to-discharge method of accounting used prior to 2018, resulting in higher rates for these days and only voyage expenses being recorded in the ballast days. Over the duration of the voyage (discharge-to-discharge) there is no difference in the total revenues and costs to be recognized. The rates quoted are for days currently contracted. Increased ballast days at the end of the quarter will reduce the additional revenues that can be booked based on the accounting cut-offs and therefore the resulting TCE will be reduced accordingly.

(1)

Ownership days are the total number of calendar days in a period during which the vessels in a fleet have been owned or chartered in. Ownership days are an indicator of the size of the Company’s fleet over a period and affect both the amount of revenues and the amount of expenses that the Company recorded during a period.

(2)

Ownership days are the total number of calendar days in a period during which the vessels in a fleet have been owned or chartered in. Ownership days are an indicator of the size of the Company’s fleet over a period and affect both the amount of revenues and the amount of expenses that the Company recorded during a period.

(3)

Fleet utilization is the percentage of time that the vessels are generating revenue and is determined by dividing operating days by ownership days for the relevant period.

(4)

TCE rate is defined as the Company’s net revenue less voyage expenses during a period divided by the number of the Company’s operating days during the period. Voyage expenses include port charges, bunker (fuel oil and diesel oil) expenses, canal charges and other commissions. The Company includes the TCE rate, a non-GAAP measure, as it believes it provides additional meaningful information in conjunction with net revenues from vessels, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure, and because it assists the Company’s management in making decisions regarding the deployment and use of the Company’s vessels and in evaluating their financial performance. The Company’s calculation of TCE rate may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. The following table reconciles the Company’s net revenues from vessels to the TCE rate.

The first tranche of $7.5 million was drawn down on April 26, 2021 and the second tranche of $8.0 million will be drawn down on the delivery of the M/V Tradership.

Cargill International S.A. (“Cargill”)

On May 11, 2021, the Company entered into a sale and leaseback transaction with Cargill to partially fund the acquisition cost of the M/V Flagship. The financing amount is $20.5 million at an implied interest rate of approximately 2% all-in, fixed for five years. The Company has the option to buy back the vessel at any time during the whole five-year leasing period, at the end of which it has a purchase obligation of $10.0 million subject to certain adjustments based on the market price of the vessel.

In addition, Cargill will fund the equipment and the installation of certain energy saving devices onboard the M/V Flagship, aimed to increase the vessel’s energy efficiency, reduce fuel consumption and subsequently reduce the vessel’s carbon footprint.

Other Financing Updates

Moreover, the Company is in advanced discussions for the financing of two of its recent acquisitions, the M/Vs Hellasship and Patriotship, through a $30.9 million leasing arrangement at competitive terms.

Fleet Growth and Commercial Update

M/V Hellasship Delivery and Time Charter Commencement

In May 2021, the Company took delivery of the 181,325 dwt Capesize bulk carrier, built in 2012 in Japan, which has been renamed M/V Hellasship. The delivery of the M/V Hellasship was the first of the five Capesize acquisitions agreed in 2021.

The M/V Hellasship has been fixed on a time charter with NYK Line, a leading Japanese shipping company and operator. The T/C commenced on May 10, 2021 and will have a term of minimum 11 to maximum 15 months. The gross daily rate of the T/C is based at a premium over the BCI.

M/V Flagship Delivery and Time Charter Commencement

In May 2021, the Company took delivery of the 176,387 dwt Capesize bulk carrier, built in 2013 in Japan, which has been renamed M/V Flagship. The M/V Flagship is the second vessel of the Company’s fleet time-chartered to Cargill.

The daily hire is based on the BCI, while the Company has the option to convert the index-linked hire to fixed for a minimum period of three months to a maximum of 12 months based on the prevailing Capesize FFA curve. The rate is 102% of the BCI minus $1,325 per day. The term of the T/C has a duration of 5 years from the delivery of the vessel to Cargill, which took place on May 10, 2021.

M/V Tradership and M/V Patriotship expected deliveries

In February and March 2021, the Company entered into agreements to purchase two Japanese Capesize bulk carriers, which upon their delivery will be renamed M/V Tradership and M/V Patriotship, respectively. Their deliveries are expected by mid-June 2021.

The M/V Patriotship has been fixed on a time charter with a major European cargo operator. The T/C will commence upon the vessel’s upcoming delivery and will have a term of minimum 12 to maximum 18 months. The gross daily rate is $31,000/day.
