Diamond S Shipping Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter 2019 Results

March 5, 2020 GMT

GREENWICH, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 5, 2020--

Diamond S Shipping Inc. (NYSE: DSSI) (“Diamond S”, or the “Company”), one of the largest publicly listed owners and operators of crude oil and product tankers, today announced results for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Highlights for the Fourth Quarter and Recent Events

-- Reported net income attributable to Diamond S of $26.1 million, or $0.65 per basic and diluted earnings per share (“EPS”), and Adjusted EBITDA (see Non-GAAP Measures section below) of $69.9 million. EPS excluding a one-time loss on the write-off of deferred financing fees was approximately $0.75 for the quarter.

-- Refinanced three legacy credit facilities, which represented approximately $500.6 million of debt, composed of $489.6 million of term loans and $11.0 of million revolving loans, into a $375.0 million term loan and up to $150.0 million in revolving loans. The refinancing extended final debt maturities on these amounts out to December 2024. The facility bears interest at LIBOR plus 2.5%.

-- Net debt at December 31, 2019 was $810.7 million implying a net debt to asset value leverage ratio of 47% based on most recent available broker valuations as of December 2019.

-- As of February 28, 2020, fixed 73% of Crude Fleet revenue days at an average rate of approximately $47,000 per day and 80% of Product Fleet revenue days at an average rate of approximately $15,900 per day in the first quarter of 2020.

-- Announced share repurchase program of up to $50 million of the Company’s shares, commencing in the first quarter of 2020.

Craig H. Stevenson Jr., President and CEO of Diamond S, commented: “The Company’s ability to capitalize on a strong rate environment is reflected in our fourth quarter results as Diamond S’ unit leverage and spot market focus offers investors upside exposure in the tanker markets. We believe that Diamond S’ conservative balance sheet, low cash break-evens and strong liquidity profile will enable us to appropriately manage the market volatility from the outbreak of the coronavirus, while keeping us ready to take advantage in any run-up in tanker rates from the current seasonal levels. Accordingly, and given the disconnect between our long-term outlook and the Company’s share price, we believe that share repurchases represent the most prudent use of our financial resources and the appropriate mechanism to return value to our shareholders at this time.”

Fourth Quarter 2019 Results 1

Net income attributable to Diamond S for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $26.1 million, or $0.65 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $30.8 million, or $1.13 per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2018. The increase in the fourth quarter of 2019 is primarily related to an increase in the number of vessels as a result of the Merger 1 and improved tanker market conditions in both the crude and product tanker segments.

The Company groups its business primarily by commodity transported and segments its fleet into a 16-vessel crude oil transportation fleet (the “Crude Fleet”) and a 50-vessel refined petroleum product transportation fleet (the “Product Fleet”). The Crude Fleet consists of 15 Suezmax vessels and one Aframax vessel. The Product Fleet consists of 44 medium range (“MR2”) vessels and 6 Handysize (“MR1”) vessels.

Net revenues for the Company, which represents voyage revenues less voyage expenses, were $123.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $55.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018. Net revenues from the Crude Fleet were $55.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $25.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018. Net revenues from the Crude Fleet increased due to the impact of four additional vessels acquired as part of the Merger and stronger market conditions in the fourth quarter of 2019 as compared to the three months ended December 31, 2018. Net revenues from the Product Fleet were $67.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $29.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018. The increase in net revenues in the Product Fleet was driven by the additional 21 vessels acquired in the Merger 1 and stronger year over year market conditions.

Vessel expenses were $44.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $30.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018. Vessel expenses, which include crew costs, insurance, repairs and maintenance, lubricants and spare parts, technical management fees and other miscellaneous expenses, increased by $14.6 million primarily due to the increase in the size of the fleet following the Merger 1, net of the sale of the two MR vessels in the third quarter of 2019.

Depreciation and amortization expense was $28.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $21.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018. The increase in depreciation and amortization expense was primarily due to the depreciation of the 25 vessels acquired in the Merger 1, which was partially offset by the sale of two MR2 vessels in the third quarter of 2019.

General and administrative expenses were $8.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $4.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018. The increase was due to higher legal and accounting professional fees related to regulatory filings and an increase in headcount required to maintain the infrastructure for public company reporting standards and vessel management of a larger fleet employed in the spot market.

Interest expense was $11.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $9.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018. Interest expense increased in the fourth quarter of 2019 due to an increase in debt borrowings as a result of financing the 25 vessels acquired in the Merger 1, as well as $4.0 million associated with the loss on extinguishment of debt as part of the debt refinance in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Other income, which consists primarily of interest income, was $0.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $0.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018.

1 As used herein, the term “Merger” refers to the business combination of DSS Holdings L.P. (“DSS LP”) and the crude and product tanker business of Capital Product Partners L.P. (“CPLP”) on March 27, 2019. The historical consolidated financial statements of DSS LP and all of its directly-owned subsidiaries for periods prior to the Merger are considered to be the predecessor financial statements of the Company. In January 2019, DSS LP’s Board of Directors approved changing the Company’s fiscal year end to December 31 of each calendar year from March 31. Both the three month period ending December 31, 2018 and twelve month period ending December 31, 2018 are unaudited and certain financial information for those periods is included herein to provide historical comparative financial results. The twelve month period ended December 31, 2018 reflects the addition of the nine months ended December 31, 2018 (available in our registration statement on Form 10 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on December 21, 2018, as thereafter amended) and the three months ended March 31, 2018 (available in our quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on May 15, 2019).

Liquidity

As of December 31, 2019, the Company had $89.2 million in cash and restricted cash. Restricted cash and minimum cash required by debt covenants was $55.6 million. The Company also had $15.0 million in available lines of credit as of December 31, 2019.

Outlook

Strong market conditions carried over into the first quarter of 2020 as the crude market environment was above typical seasonal trends before coming under pressure due to the lifting of sanctions on a subsidiary of COSCO and the emergence of the coronavirus. The coronavirus has had a significant impact on global commodity trade and specifically end market demand from China. Notably, larger vessel classes have been disproportionately impacted by a decrease in long haul voyages. As of February 28, 2020, approximately 73% of the Crude Fleet revenue days in the first quarter of 2020 have been fixed at an average rate of approximately $47,000 per day. The product market has also recently come under pressure as Chinese refinery throughput in February is set to fall by 1-2m b/d, reflecting the impact of the coronavirus on demand. As of February 28, 2020, approximately 80% of the Product Fleet revenue days have been fixed at an average rate of approximately $15,900 per day in the first quarter of 2020.

Looking forward, the Company continues to monitor the global impact of the coronavirus on transportation demand. In the meantime, the orderbook across all tanker segments remains at historically low levels and is not expected to disrupt the thin balance between supply and demand that can result in heightened volatility and occasional rapid increases in daily vessel rates. The impact of limited supply is contrasted by other shipping segments that have experienced daily rates decline to beneath operating levels in recent weeks. The Company remains constructive in its long-term market outlook and strongly believes the current market price of its shares do not reflect the underlying value of its assets. As a result, the Company has decided to initiate a share repurchase program of up to $50 million. Additionally, the Company believes that its Crude Fleet and Product Fleet both offer very favorable exposure to long-term market dynamics and that it is well positioned to generate substantial earnings in a strong rate environment due to its competitive breakeven levels.

Share Repurchase Program

On March 4, 2020, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a share repurchase program, providing the Company with authorization to repurchase up to $50 million of shares of the Company’s common stock, effective for a period of one year. Diamond S may repurchase these shares in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, at times and prices that are considered to be appropriate by the Company. As of the date hereof, the Company has not purchased any shares under the share repurchase program.

Time charter equivalent (“TCE”) revenue represents voyage revenues, which commence at the time a vessel departs its last discharge port and end at the time the discharge of cargo at the next discharge port is complete, less voyage expenses incurred over such time. TCE rates are a non-GAAP measure, generally used in the shipping industry, used to compare revenue generated from voyage charters to revenue generated from time charters. TCE rates assist the Company’s management in making decisions regarding the deployment and use of its vessels and in evaluating the financial performance of vessels under commercial management. See Non-GAAP Measures below.

(2)

 

Revenues are derived on a discharge-to-discharge basis less voyage expenses which primarily consist of fuel costs and port charges incurred over the same period. Voyage revenues, as presented in the income statement, are reported under a load-to-discharge basis under U.S. GAAP. A reconciliation is provided in the Non-GAAP Measures section of the press release.

(3)

 

The vessel operating expenses primarily consist of crew wages and associated costs, insurance premiums, lubricants and spare parts, technical management fees and repair and maintenance costs and excludes nonrecurring items.

(4)

 

Operating days include the calendar days in the period of owned vessels. Revenue days represent operating days less technical off-hire and drydocking.

  

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement the Company’s financial information presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“GAAP”), management uses certain “non-GAAP financial measures” as such term is defined in Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s operating performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes or includes amounts that are included in, or excluded from, the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Management believes the presentation of these measures provides investors with greater transparency and supplemental data relating to the Company’s financial condition and results of operations, and therefore a more complete understanding of factors affecting its business than GAAP measures alone.

TCE revenue, TCE per day, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), and EBITDA adjusted for the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance (“Adjusted EBITDA”) are non-GAAP financial measures that are presented in this press release and that the Company believes provide investors with a means of evaluating and understanding how the Company’s management evaluates the Company’s operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, as substitutes for, nor superior to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Please see below for reconciliations of TCE revenue, TCE per day, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.

Reconciliation of Net Income/(Loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA represents net income (loss) before interest expense, income taxes and depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA consists of EBITDA adjusted for the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented to provide investors with meaningful additional information that management uses to monitor ongoing operating results and evaluate trends over comparative periods. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent, and should not be considered a substitute for, net income (loss) or cash flows from operations determined in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results reported under GAAP. Some limitations are:

  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; and
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt.

While EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used by companies as a measure of operating results and performance, neither of those items as prepared by the Company is necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to differences in methods of calculation. The following table reconciles net income/(loss), as reflected in the consolidated statements of operations, to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA:
