    Euroseas Ltd. Reports Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2021

    ATHENS, Greece, May 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Euroseas Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESEA, the “Company” or “Euroseas”), an owner and operator of container carrier vessels and provider of seaborne transportation for containerized cargoes, announced today its results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021. First Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights: Total net revenues of $14.3 million. Net income of $3.8 million; net income attributable to common shareholders (after a $0.1 million of dividend on Series B Preferred Shares and a $0.1 million of preferred deemed dividend arising out of the redemption of approximately $2 million of Series B Preferred Shares in the first quarter of 2021) of $3.6 million or $0.53 per share basic and diluted. Adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders1 for the period was $3.0 million or $0.45 per share basic and diluted. Adjusted EBITDA1 was $5.6 million. An average of 14.0 vessels were owned and operated during the first quarter of 2021 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $12,134 per day. The Company declared a dividend of $0.1 million on its Series B Preferred Shares. The dividend will be paid in cash. Additional announcement: The Company has completed its first Environment, Social & Governance (“ESG”) report which will be available on its web site on May 26, 2021. Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of Euroseas commented: “Over the last three months, the containership markets have continued their upward path exceeding their previous peak of 2008 and coming within reach to challenge their all-time highs last observed in 2005. Recovering demand and inefficiencies in container transport logistics, like port congestion, crew replacement and COVID related protocols, have been combined with modest supply growth to support the present market levels. The higher rates, naturally, have had a very positive effect on our profitability which is to further increase as the remaining of our vessels will renew their legacy charters during the following 4-5 months. In addition to chartering our vessels at higher rates, the strong market has allowed us to pursue charters of longer periods, of two or more years, thus, establishing visibility of our earnings well into next year and even 2023. “We believe that the favorable market fundamentals will continue over the remainder of this and the next year as world economies are projected to continue recovering from their pandemic induced slowdowns and to register strong growth rates while, in parallel, vessel deliveries are expected to be modest over the same period. “Our strategy is focused on ensuring that Euroseas remains a significant participant in the feeder/intermediate containership segment, expanding in a risk measured and accretive manner and using our public listing as a potential platform to consolidate privately owned vessels or fleets. Furthermore, as our liquidity increases, we are evaluating possible uses of any accumulated funds in terms of further deleveraging our balance sheet, exploiting investment opportunities or rewarding our shareholders by re-instituting common stock dividends. “Finally, we are pleased to have completed our first Environment, Social & Governance report. Our ESG responsibilities is an integral part of our strategy and our overall success and we look forward to regularly communicating our progress on this front to our shareholders and investors.” Tasos Aslidis, Chief Financial Officer of Euroseas commented: “The results of the first quarter of 2021 reflect the increased charter rates our vessels earned due to the major recovery of the market compared to the same period of last year. Our net revenues decreased to $14.3 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared to $15.4 million during the same period of last year due to the lower number of vessels we operated in the first quarter of 2021. During the first quarter of 2021 we operated 14.0 vessels versus 19.0 vessels during the same period of last year. “On a per-vessel-per-day basis, our vessels earned a 26.2% higher average charter rate in the first quarter of 2021 as compared to the same period of 2020. Again, on a per-vessel-per-day basis, the sum of vessel operating expenses, management fees and general and administrative expenses increased by 17.6% during the first quarter of 2021 as compared to the same period in 2020 which was attributable to increased supply of stores, increase in hull and machinery insurance premiums and the increased crewing costs for our vessels compared to the same period of 2020, resulting from difficulties in crew rotation due to COVID-19 related restrictions. We believe that we continue to maintain one of the lowest operating cost structures amongst the public shipping companies which is one of our competitive advantages. “Adjusted EBITDA during the first quarter of 2021 was $5.6 million compared to $4.1 million achieved for the first quarter of 2020.” “Finally, as of March 31, 2021, our outstanding debt (excluding the unamortized loan fees) is about $65.1 million versus restricted and unrestricted cash of about $6.4 million.” First Quarter 2021 Results:For the first quarter of 2021, the Company reported total net revenues of $14.3 million representing a 7.3% decrease over total net revenues of $15.4 million during the first quarter of 2020. On average, 14.0 vessels were owned and operated during the first quarter of 2021 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $12,134 per day compared to 19.0 vessels in the same period of 2020 earning on average $9,615 per day. The Company reported a net income for the period of $3.8 million and a net income attributable to common shareholders of $3.6 million, as compared to a net income of $2.0 million and a net income attributable to common shareholders of $1.8 million for the first quarter of 2020. Vessel operating expenses for the first quarter of 2021 amounted to $6.9 million as compared to $8.0 million for the same period of 2020. The decreased amount is due to the lower number of vessels owned and operated in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the corresponding period of 2020, partly offset by the increased crewing costs for our vessels compared to the same period of 2020, resulting from difficulties in crew rotation due to COVID-19 related restrictions, the increased supply of stores and the increase in hull and machinery insurance premiums. Depreciation expense for the first quarter of 2021 amounted to $1.6 million compared to $1.7 million for the same period of 2020 due to the decreased number of vessels in the Company’s fleet. Related party management fees for the first quarter of 2021 decreased to $1.1 million from $1.3 million for the same period of 2020 for the same reason. In the first quarter of 2021 and 2020, none of our vessels underwent drydocking and certain expenses were incurred in connection with upcoming drydockings; finally, during the first quarter of 2021, we had other operating income of $0.2 million relating to settlement of accounts with charterers of sold vessels. Interest and other financing costs for the first quarter of 2021 amounted to $0.7 million compared to $1.3 million for the same period of 2020. This decrease is due to the decreased amount of debt and the decrease in weighted average LIBOR rate in the current period compared to the same period of 2020. For the three months ended March 31, 2021 the Company recognized a $0.48 million loss on its interest rate swap contract, comprising a $0.52 million unrealized loss and a $0.04 million realized gain. Adjusted EBITDA1 for the first quarter of 2021 was $5.6 million, compared to $4.1 million achieved for the first quarter of 2020. Please see below for Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation to net income. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2021 was $0.53, calculated on 6,711,408 basic and 6,749,393 diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.32 for the first quarter of 2020, calculated on 5,576,960 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding. Excluding the effect on the income attributable to common shareholders for the quarter of the unrealized gain on derivatives and the loss on sale of vessel, the adjusted earnings per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 would have been $0.45 per share basic and diluted, respectively, compared to adjusted earnings of $0.17 per share basic and diluted for the first quarter of 2020, after excluding amortization of below market time charters acquired. Usually, security analysts do not include the above items in their published estimates of earnings per share.

(**) The CONTEX (Container Ship Time Charter Assessment Index) has been published by the Hamburg and Bremen Shipbrokers’ Association (VHBS) since October 2007. The CONTEX is a company-independent index of time charter rates for containerships. It is based on assessments of the current day charter rates of six selected containership types, which are representative of their size categories: Type 1,100 TEU and Type 1,700 TEU with a charter period of one year, and the Types 2,500, 2,700, 3,500 and 4,250 TEU all with a charter period of two years.

(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 Calendar days in a period 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 rate, or TCE rate, is a measure of the average daily net 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 include crew costs, provisions, deck and engine stores, lubricating oil, insurance, maintenance and repairs and management fees are calculated by dividing vessel operating expenses and management fees 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 expense 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.
