Euroseas Ltd. Reports Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2014

MAROUSSI, ATHENS, GREECE -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Euroseas Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESEA), an owner and operator of drybulk and container carrier vessels and provider of seaborne transportation for drybulk and containerized cargoes, announced today its results for the three month period ended March 31, 2014.

First Quarter 2014 Highlights:

  • Net loss of $2.2 million or $0.05 loss per share basic and diluted on total net revenues of $9.5 million. Adjusted net loss(1) for the period was the same.

  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $1.0 million.

  • An average of 14.00 vessels were owned and operated during the first quarter of 2014 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $7,969 per day.

  • The Company declared its first dividend of $0.3 million on its Series B Preferred shares; the dividend was paid in-kind by issuing additional Series B Preferred Shares.

Recent Developments:

  • March 2014: Sold 11,164,868 shares of its common stock shares in a private placement for aggregate net proceeds of approximately $14.4 million.

  • May 2014: Concluded the signing of a previously announced agreement to acquire the contracts for the construction of two Kamsarmax fuel efficient drybulk carriers of 82,000 dwt each scheduled to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2015 and in the fourth quarter of 2016; chartered the vessel to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2015 for 4 years with an additional year at charterer's option with the contract expected to generate approximately of $20 million of revenues over the four years.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net loss and Adjusted loss per share are not recognized measurements under GAAP. Refer to a subsequent section of the Press Release for the definitions and reconciliation of these measurements to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of Euroseas, commented: "During the first four months of 2014, the drybulk market weakened whilst the containership market showed some signs of moving slightly up, away from its all-time lows. We expect both markets to show a slow gradual improvement over the remaining of 2014 and 2015 based on the expected demand and supply developments. Our chartering strategy remains to pursue short term charters of 3-12 months in order to retain the opportunity to take advantage of any rate increases.

"Over the last six months, we embarked on an investment program for the drybulk part of our fleet by ordering or acquiring the contracts of 4 newbuilding vessels and agreeing to acquire a second hand panamax vessel thus positioning Euroseas to take advantage of the expected recovery of the drybulk market; we focused mainly on newbuilding contracts as we believe that newbuilding prices have moved only modestly up as compared to secondhand prices. We have also raised more than $43m net proceeds through a preferred offering and a common share offering to finance the equity portion of these investments. In parallel, we pursued opportunities in the containership market via Euromar, our joint venture with 2 private equity firms, and acquired a 5,600 teu vessel with a 3-year charter. With all the above, we believe we made Euroseas a company with significant presence and exposure in the drybulk market -- when our newbuilding program is complete -- but also with an additional significant upside potential if the containership market recovers, through the vessels we directly own and our share in Euromar. We continue to look for additional opportunities to further expand our fleet in accretive ways."

Tasos Aslidis, Chief Financial Officer of Euroseas, commented: "The results of the first quarter of 2014 reflect the continued depressed state of the markets. Comparing our results for the first quarter of 2014 with the same period of 2013, our net revenues declined by about $1.4 million but we incurred lower drydocking expenses of approximately $1.7 million and lower depreciation expenses of approximately $1.4 million which overall resulted in a lower overall loss of $0.05 / share, taking also into account the increased number of shares during the first quarter of 2014 due to our recent common stock offering.

"Total daily vessel operating expenses, including management fees and general and administrative ("G&A") expenses increased by 1.2% on a per vessel per day basis during the first quarter of 2014 as compared to the first quarter of 2013. Our drydocking expenses in the first quarter of 2014 were only $68/day on a per vessel per day basis reflecting expenses for upcoming drydockings as there was no drydocking performed during the first quarter of 2014, a level that was significantly lower as compared to the $1,343/day for same period of 2013 during which three drydockings were performed. We believe that we continue to maintain one of the lowest operating cost structures amongst the public shipping companies which, we believe, is one of our competitive advantages.

"As of March 31, 2014, our outstanding debt is about $52.5 million versus restricted and unrestricted cash of about $62.3 million. We were in compliance with all our loan covenants."

First Quarter 2014 Results:
For the first quarter of 2014, the Company reported total net revenues of $9.5 million representing a 12.5% decrease over total net revenues of $10.9 million during the first quarter of 2013. The Company reported loss for the period of $2.2 million as compared to a net loss of $4.6 million for the first quarter of 2013. The results for the first quarter of 2014 include a $0.2 million unrealized gain on derivatives as compared to $0.5 million unrealized gain on derivatives for the same period of 2013; and a $0.2 million realized loss on derivatives compared to a $0.4 million realized loss in the same period of 2013. Drydocking expenses of $0.09 million during the quarter were significantly lower than the $1.8 million incurred in the first quarter of 2013, since no vessel undertook drydock in the first quarter of the year 2014. Depreciation expense for the first quarter of 2014 was $2.9 million compared to $4.3 million during the same period of 2013 as a result of the lower number of vessels in the fleet but also due to lower cost base for nine of the containerships as a result of the impairment charge recorded as of December 31, 2013. On average, 14.00 vessels were owned and operated during the first quarter of 2014 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $7,817 per day compared to 15.00 vessels in the same period of 2013 earning on average $8,718 per day.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2014 was $1.0 million up from negative $0.1 million achieved during the first quarter of 2013. Please see below for Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation to net loss and cash flow provided by operating activities.

Basic and diluted loss per share for the first quarter of 2014 was $0.05, calculated on 47,956,229 weighted average number of shares outstanding compared to basic and diluted loss per share of $0.10 for the first quarter of 2013, calculated on 45,319,605 weighted average number of shares outstanding.

Excluding the effect on the loss for the quarter of the unrealized gain and realized losses on derivatives, the adjusted loss per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 would have remained the same at $0.05 per share basic and diluted, compared to the loss, for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 of $0.10 per share basic and diluted. Usually, security analysts do not include the above items in their published estimates of earnings per share.

Note: (*) Charter duration indicates the earliest redelivery date unless the
      contract rate is lower than the current market rate in which cases the
      latest redelivery date is assumed; vessels with the latest redelivery
      date shown are marked by (*). Generally, charterers have a range of 15
      days to 3 of months to redeliver the vessels depending on the length
      of the charter.
      (**) Vessels are to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2015 (one
      ultramax and one kamsarmax), the other ultramax in the first quarter
      of 2016 and the other kamsarmax in the fourth quarter of 2016. The
      Company expects to take delivery of Eirini P in May 2014. Until
      delivery, the Company is not the owner of the vessels.

(1)  Average number of vessels is the number of vessels that constituted the
     Company's fleet for the relevant period, as measured by the sum of the
     number of calendar days each vessel was a part of the Company's fleet
     during the period divided by the number of calendar days in that
     period.

(2)  Calendar days. The Company defines calendar days as the total number of
     days in a period during which each vessel in the Company's fleet was in
     its 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 its fleet over a
     period and affect both the amount of revenues and the amount of
     expenses that the Company records 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. The Company uses
     available days to measure the number of days in a period during which
     vessels were available to generate revenues.

(4)  Available days. The Company defines available days as the total number
     of days in a period during which each vessel in the Company's fleet was
     in its possession net of scheduled off-hire days including days of
     vessels laid-up.

(5)  Commercial off-hire days. The Company defines commercial off-hire days
     as days waiting to find employment.

(6)  Operational off-hire days. The Company defines 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. The Company defines voyage days as the total number of
     days in a period during which each vessel in the Company's fleet was in
     its possession net of commercial and operational off-hire days. The
     Company uses voyage days to measure the number of days in a period
     during which vessels actually generate revenues.

(8)  Fleet utilization. The Company calculates fleet utilization by dividing
     the number of the Company's voyage days during a period by the number
     of its available days during that period. The Company uses 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. The Company calculates commercial fleet
     utilization by dividing the Company's available days net of commercial
     off-hire days during a period by its available days during that period.

(10) Fleet utilization, operational. The Company calculates operational
     fleet utilization by dividing the Company's available days net of
     operational off-hire days during a period by its available days during
     that period.

(11) Time charter equivalent, or TCE, is a measure of the average daily
     revenue performance of a vessel on a per voyage basis. The Company's
     method of calculating TCE is determined by dividing Voyage 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. 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 and
     bareboat charters) under which the vessels may be employed between the
     periods.

(12) Daily vessel operating expenses, which includes crew costs, provisions,
     deck and engine stores, lubricating oil, insurance, maintenance and
     repairs and management fees are calculated by dividing vessel operating
     expenses 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 the Company's
     total expenses associated with operating its vessels. TVOE is the sum
     of vessel operating expenses excluding drydocking expenses and general
     and administrative expenses. Daily TVOE is calculated by dividing TVOE
     by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period.

(15) Drydocking expenses, which 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.

Conference Call and Webcast:
Tomorrow, Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. EDT, the Company's management will host a conference call to discuss the results.

Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation:
Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted EBITDA to represent net earnings / (loss) before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, gain / loss in derivatives. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income / (loss) or cash flow from operations, as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and the Company's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is included herein because it is a basis upon which the Company assesses its financial performance and liquidity position and because the Company believes that it presents useful information to investors regarding a company's ability to service and/or incur indebtedness. The Company's definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be the same as that used by other companies in the shipping or other industries.

Adjusted Net loss and Adjusted Net loss per share Reconciliation:
Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted Net loss to represent net loss before gain / loss in derivatives. Adjusted Net loss and Adjusted Net loss per share is included herein because we believe it assists our management and investors by increasing the comparability of the Company's fundamental performance from period to period by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods of gain / loss on derivatives, which items may significantly affect results of operations between periods.

Adjusted Net loss and Adjusted Net loss per share do not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or loss per share, as determined by U.S. GAAP. The Company's definition of Adjusted Net loss and Adjusted Net loss per share may not be the same as that used by other companies in the shipping or other industries.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
