Share:

LONDON, July 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Ship Lease, Inc. (NYSE:GSL), a containership charter owner, announced today its unaudited results for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter and Year To Date Highlights

- Reported operating revenues of $35.0 million for the second quarter 2018. Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $71.1 million

- Reported net income available to common shareholders of $4.0 million for the second quarter 2018. For the six months ended June 30, 2018, net income was $8.2 million

- Generated $23.4 million of Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the second quarter 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $47.0 million

- Took delivery on June 18, 2018 of GSL Valerie, a 2005-built, 2,824 TEU containership. Shortly after delivery, the vessel commenced charter employment with CMA CGM for a period of 12 months at a fixed rate of $9,000 per day.

Ian Webber, Chief Executive Officer of Global Ship Lease, stated, "Our fully contracted fleet of mid-sized and smaller containerships generated consistent cashflows from top-tier counterparties throughout the quarter. Our existing fleet of 18 vessels continued to operate in a highly stable and predictable manner. Further, we took delivery of our nineteenth ship, the GSL Valerie, on June 18, 2018, with pre-agreed charter employment with CMA CGM commencing on July 1. Global Ship Lease is in a strong position to continue benefitting from our substantial contracted revenues, established relationships with industry leaders, and ability to capitalize on attractive growth opportunities."

Mr. Webber added, "Despite concerns around global trade tensions, the charter rates and asset values for the mid-sized and smaller containership segments - which remain the focus of GSL's fleet - have continued to strengthen significantly in 2018 on the back of positive supply/demand fundamentals. We maintain our long-expressed thesis that these fleet segments hold the best upside prospects and continue to explore opportunities to grow our fleet on an accretive, highly disciplined basis for the benefit of our shareholders."

Revenue and Utilization

The GSL Valerie was delivered on June 18, 2018 and commenced a charter with CMA CGM on July 1, 2018. The remaining 18-vessel fleet generated revenue from fixed-rate, mainly long-term time, charters of $35.0 million in the three months ended June 30, 2018, down $5.3 million (or 13.2%) on revenue of $40.3 million for the comparative period in 2017. The reduction in revenue is mainly due to lower rates on the renewals of the charters of (i) the 2002-built Julie Delmas and the 2003-built Delmas Keta, effective September 2017, (ii) the 2005-built GSL Tianjin effective October 2017 and January 2018 and (iii) the 2004-built OOCL Qingdao effective March 2018 with 21 fewer days offhire in the second quarter 2018. There were 1,651 ownership days in the quarter, up 13 from the comparative period in 2017 due to the delivery on the 2005-built GSL Valerie. The 21 days of offhire in the three months ended June 30, 2018 were mainly attributable to one scheduled dry-docking. With 13 days idle time for GSL Valerie pending her deployment on charter to CMA CGM on July 1, 2018, utilization was 97.9%. In the comparative period of 2017, there were 15 days of planned offhire for scheduled dry-dockings and 27 days of unplanned offhire, giving a utilization of 98.6%.

For the six months ended June 30, 2018, revenue was $71.1 million, down $8.8 million (or 11.0%) on revenue of $79.9 million in the comparative period, mainly due to the factors noted above, offset by a reduction in total offhire from 92 days to 51 days.

The table below shows fleet utilization for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, and for the years ended December 31, 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014.

In the three months ended June 30, 2018, we completed one regulatory dry-docking. There have been a total of two regulatory dry-dockings year to date. No further regulatory dry-dockings are scheduled in 2018. Two dry-dockings were completed in the three months ended June 30, 2017, and one further dry-docking was substantially completed. There were a total of four dry-dockings in 2017.

Vessel Operating Expenses

Vessel operating expenses, which include costs of crew, lubricating oil, spares and insurance, as well as bunker fuel when a vessel is offhire or without a charter, were $10.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The average cost per ownership day in the quarter was $6,174, compared to $6,635 for the comparative period, down $461 or 6.9%. The reduction is mainly for lower crew costs and the reversal of accruals for insurance deductibles.

For the six months ended June 30, 2018, vessel operating expenses were $20.7 million, or an average of $6,334 per day, compared to $22.7 million in the comparative period, or $6,531 per day, a reduction of 3.0%.

Depreciation

Depreciation for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $8.2 million, compared to $9.5 million in the second quarter 2017, with the reduction being due to the effect of lower book values for a number of vessels following impairment write downs taken in 2017.

Depreciation for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $16.3 million, compared to $19.1 million in the comparative period, with the reduction being due to the reason noted above.

General and Administrative Costs

General and administrative costs were $1.5 million in the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $1.3 million in the second quarter of 2017.

For the six months ended June 30, 2018, general and administrative costs were $3.4 million, compared to $2.6 million in the comparative period in 2017, with the increase being due to higher legal and professional fees, mainly in the three months ended March 31, 2018.

Other Operating Income

Other operating income in the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $9,000, compared to $6,000 in the second quarter of 2017.

For the six months ended June 30, 2018, other operating income was $15,000, compared to $48,000 in the comparative period. 

Adjusted EBITDA

As a result of the above, Adjusted EBITDA was $23.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, down from $28.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, with the reduction being mainly due to lower revenue.

Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $47.0 million, compared to $56.1 million for the comparative period, with the reduction again being mainly due to lower revenue.

Interest Expense

Debt at June 30, 2018 totaled $404.8 million, comprising $360.0 million outstanding on our 9.875% notes due 2022 and $44.8 million under our secured term loan, both of which were closed in October 2017 as part of a re-financing. The net proceeds, together with cash on hand, were used to refinance our previous 10.000% notes due 2019. In addition, all outstanding borrowings under both the previous revolving credit facility and the previous secured term loan were repaid and terminated.

Debt at June 30, 2017 totaled $404.0 million, comprised $346.3 million outstanding on our previous 10.000% notes due 2019, and $57.7 million outstanding under the revolving credit facility and the secured term loan.

Interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2018, was $10.7 million, compared to $11.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, with the reduction mainly due to the prior period including $0.4 million premium paid in connection with the excess cashflow offer which retired $19.5 million principal amount of our previous 10% notes in April 2017.

For the six months ended June 30, 2018, interest expense was $21.5 million, compared to $22.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, with the reduction mainly for the reason noted above.

Interest income for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $0.4 million, compared to $0.1 million in the comparative quarter in 2017 on higher cash balances and increased interest rates.

Interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $0.6 million, compared to $0.2 million in the comparative period in 2017.

Taxation

Taxation for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $31,000, compared to $6,000 in the second quarter of 2017.

Taxation for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $46,000, compared to $16,000 for the comparative period in 2017. 

Earnings Allocated to Preferred Shares

The Series B preferred shares, issued on August 20, 2014, carry a coupon of 8.75%, the cost of which for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $0.8 million, the same as in the comparative period. The cost was $1.5 million in the six months ended June 30, 2018, again the same as in the comparative period.

Net Income Available to Common Shareholders

Net income available to common shareholders for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $4.0 million, compared to $6.8 million in the second quarter 2017.

Normalized net income was the same as that reported at $4.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $7.3 million in the second quarter of 2017, which excludes the premium paid on the purchase of our previous 10% notes in April 2017 under the excess cashflow offer and associated charges.

Net income available to common shareholders was $8.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $13.6 million in the comparative period. Normalized net income for the six months ended June 30, 2018, was the same as reported. Normalized net income for the six months ended June 30, 2017, which excludes the premium paid and associated charges in connection with the excess cashflow offer, was $14.1 million.

Reconciliation of Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures

A. Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before interest income and expense including amortization of deferred finance costs, realized and unrealized gain (loss) on derivatives, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-US GAAP quantitative measure used to assist in the assessment of the Company's ability to generate cash from its operations. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Adjusted EBITDA is not defined in US GAAP and should not be considered to be an alternate to Net income or any other financial metric required by such accounting principles.

B. Normalized net income

Normalized net income represents net income adjusted for the premium paid on the tender offer together with the related accelerated amortization of deferred financing costs and original issue discount. Normalized net income is a non-GAAP quantitative measure which we believe will assist investors and analysts who often adjust reported net income for non-operating items that do not affect operating performance or operating cash generated. Normalized net income is not defined in US GAAP and should not be considered to be an alternate to net income or any other financial metric required by such accounting principles.
