First Quarter of 2020 Compared to Fourth Quarter of 2019

GAAP net income and non-GAAP adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2020 improved compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, primarily due to higher average spot tanker rates, partially offset by the sale of four Suezmax tankers during December 2019 and the first quarter of 2020. GAAP net income in the fourth quarter of 2019 also included adjustments to freight tax accruals relating to prior periods.

First Quarter of 2020 Compared to First Quarter of 2019

GAAP net income and non-GAAP adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2020 significantly increased compared to the same period of the prior year, primarily due to higher average spot tanker rates and fewer off-hire days, partially offset by the sale of four Suezmax tankers since December 2019.

CEO Commentary

"In the first quarter of 2020, Teekay Tankers achieved its highest quarterly adjusted profit in more than 10 years, with adjusted net income of approximately $110 million, or $3.27 per share, and I am pleased to report that our fleet has continued to secure strong spot rates in the second quarter of 2020 to-date," commented Kevin Mackay, Teekay Tankers' President and Chief Executive Officer. "While COVID-19 is having an unprecedented impact on the world and is clearly a major focus for us, we are fortunate to be in a position where our financial results are stronger so far in 2020 and we have had minimal impacts on our operations due to the pandemic. We are truly proud of how our seafarers and onshore colleagues have responded to COVID-19, implementing new standards which focus on the health and well-being of everyone involved in our organization, especially our colleagues at sea, while maintaining consistently safe and efficient operations for our customers."

"We have continued to execute on our strategic priorities, taking advantage of the strong spot tanker market over the last couple of months and opportunistically securing time charter-out contracts for an additional nine vessels for periods of six months to two years. We have now secured a total of 13 time charter-out contracts since October 2019, locking in approximately $170 million of forward fixed rate revenues(1) at attractive rates and reducing our free cash flow breakeven to approximately $10,500 per day through the first quarter of 2021. Our low breakeven rate is expected to enable us to create shareholder value in almost any market which is important given the current market uncertainty for the second half of 2020."

"In addition, we continue to focus on further increasing our financial strength. With the strong cash flows we generated from operations and the proceeds from vessel sales in the first quarter of 2020, we reduced our net debt by approximately $200 million, or over 20 percent, to $730 million as of March 31, 2020, while also significantly increasing our total liquidity to $368 million over the same period, and have subsequently continued to make meaningful progress on both fronts."

Mr. Mackay added, "Our focus on debt reduction creates shareholder value directly through increased net asset value and also increased financial flexibility, which is important in all tanker markets. With a low free cash flow breakeven, a strong liquidity position, lower balance sheet leverage, no significant debt maturities until 2024 and our mid-size fleet profile, we believe that Teekay Tankers is one of the best positioned companies in our sector to continue creating shareholder value."

(1) Commencing from April 1, 2020.

Summary of Recent Events

Since the beginning of the year, Teekay Tankers has entered into time charter-out contracts for five Suezmax tankers, each for a duration of one year at an average rate of $45,600 per day, one Suezmax time charter-out contract for six months at $52,500 per day, and three time charter-out contracts for Aframax-sized vessels for one to two years at an average rate of $26,750 per day.

In late-April 2020, Teekay Tankers closed the previously announced sale of a portion of its oil and gas ship-to-ship transfer support business, which also provides gas terminal management and consulting services, for approximately $27.0 million, of which approximately $14.3 million has been received with the remaining amount due in the third quarter of 2020. Teekay Tankers retained its entire Full Service Lightering business that operates in the U.S. Gulf, which provides ship-to-ship oil transfers for both U.S. crude imports and exports. In addition, the Company will continue to operate oil ship-to-ship transfer support services in North America and the Caribbean, a business that has synergies with its core Full Service Lightering business.

Tanker Market

The first quarter of 2020 started on a relatively strong note, as positive supply and demand fundamentals existing during the fourth quarter of 2019 continued into the early part of the year. However, crude tanker spot rates gradually softened through the course of January 2020 due to lower demand ahead of Chinese New Year, and weakened further during February 2020 as the COVID-19 outbreak began to impact Asian crude oil imports.

The tanker market improved quickly during March 2020 with the collapse of the OPEC+ supply agreement and subsequent price war waged by Saudi Arabia and Russia. Both countries increased production substantially during March and April 2020, resulting in higher crude oil exports and increased shipping demand. At the same time, global oil demand plummeted as lockdown restrictions were implemented in many parts of the world in order to halt the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This led to a significant mismatch between global oil supply and demand and a historic build in global oil inventories. The rapid build in inventories drove oil prices to multi-year lows and pushed the crude oil futures curve into a steep contango, which encouraged oil traders to charter ships for floating storage. The increasing number of tankers being utilized for storage led to a tightening of available fleet supply which, in combination with healthy cargo supply, resulted in increased tanker fleet utilization. As a result, mid-size tanker spot rates during the first quarter of 2020 were the highest since 2008.

Crude tanker spot rates have remained firm at the beginning of the second quarter of 2020. However, the outlook for spot rates has become more uncertain. In the near-term, global oil supply is expected to decline substantially, which should result in fewer spot cargoes. The OPEC+ group of producers have announced record supply cuts of 9.7 million barrels per day (mb/d) starting in May 2020, with Saudi Arabia subsequently pledging to cut supply by a further 1 mb/d in June 2020, while production in several non-OPEC countries is also starting to decline in response to lower oil prices. However, these supply cuts may be insufficient to offset the expected drop in oil demand in the near-term, potentially resulting in a further build in global oil inventories and more floating storage demand. The strength of the crude spot tanker market is likely to be determined by the relative balance between a decline in spot cargoes, and any rise in floating storage demand, and we anticipate that the spot tanker market will remain volatile in the near-term.

Looking further ahead, global oil demand is expected to begin recovering as lockdown restrictions start to be lifted across the globe from May 2020 onwards. However, the pace and strength of this recovery is highly uncertain. OPEC+ supply cuts are expected to remain in place throughout 2020 into 2021, although OPEC+ has indicated that the cuts may reduce over time. As global oil supply and demand adjust, we may see a period of oil inventory destocking emerge, which may dampen tanker demand in the medium-term. The redelivery of vessels from floating storage into the spot trading fleet may also negatively impact crude tanker spot rates later in 2020 and into 2021.

Against the uncertainty around tanker demand, the tanker supply fundamentals offer a clear, positive counterbalance, with a much lower tanker orderbook than in previous cycles. The tanker orderbook, when measured as a percentage of the existing fleet, is currently at a 23-year low of around 8 percent. This compares to an orderbook of around 20 percent at the peak of the last market cycle in 2015 and just under 50 percent in 2008. New vessel ordering remains low due to financing constraints and uncertainty over what type of fuel and propulsion system to choose given new technology developments and future environmental legislation, such as IMO 2030. Finally, the global tanker fleet is aging, with 370 mid-size tankers, or 19 percent of the fleet, currently 15 years of age or older, and thus likely to face scrapping in the coming years. Taking all of these factors into account, net tanker fleet growth is expected to be very low for at least the next two years.

In summary, the extraordinary upheaval in global oil markets at the start of 2020 has driven crude tanker spot rates to the highest level in more than 10 years. In the near-term, we anticipate that rates will remain volatile due to a continued mismatch between oil supply and demand and an ongoing need for floating storage. The medium-term outlook is far less certain, and a period of lower oil supply coupled with inventory destocking may weigh on tanker demand. However, very low tanker fleet growth due to a small orderbook and high scrapping may lead to a faster rebalancing than in previous market cycles.

Definitions and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes various financial measures that are non-GAAP financial measures as defined under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These non-GAAP financial measures, which include Adjusted Net Income, Free Cash Flow, Net Revenues, and Adjusted EBITDA, are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered substitutes for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these measures do not have standardized definitions across companies, and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.  These non-GAAP measures are used by management, and the Company believes that these supplemental metrics assist investors and other users of its financial reports in comparing financial and operating performance of the Company across reporting periods and with other companies.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted net income excludes items of income or loss from GAAP net income that are typically excluded by securities analysts in their published estimates of the Company's financial results. The Company believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company's financial performance, as does management. Please refer to Appendix A of this release for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure reflected in the Company's consolidated financial statements.

Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization and is adjusted to exclude certain items whose timing or amount cannot be reasonably estimated in advance or that are not considered representative of core operating performance. Such adjustments include foreign exchange gains and losses, gains and losses on sale of vessels, unrealized credit loss adjustments, unrealized gains and losses on derivative instruments and any write-offs and certain other income or expenses. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes realized gains or losses on interest rate swaps as management, in assessing the Company's performance, views these gains or losses as an element of interest expense and realized gains or losses on derivative instruments resulting from amendments or terminations of the underlying instruments. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA represents Adjusted EBITDA from vessels that are consolidated on the Company's financial statements.  Adjusted EBITDA from Equity-Accounted Joint Venture represents the Company's proportionate share of Adjusted EBITDA from its equity-accounted joint venture, and as a result, the Company does not have the unilateral ability to determine whether the cash generated by its equity-accounted joint venture is retained within the entity in which the Company holds the equity-accounted joint venture or distributed to the Company and other owners. In addition, the Company does not control the timing of any such distributions to the Company and other owners. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors and management to measure the operational performance of companies. Total Adjusted EBITDA represents Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA plus Adjusted EBITDA from Equity-Accounted Joint Venture. Please refer to Appendices C and D of this release for reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to net income and equity income, respectively, which are the most directly comparable GAAP measures reflected in the Company's consolidated financial statements.

Free cash flow (FCF) represents net income, plus depreciation and amortization, unrealized losses from derivative instruments, loss on sales of vessels, equity loss from the equity-accounted joint venture, and any write-offs and certain other non-cash non-recurring items, less unrealized gains from derivative instruments, gain on sales of vessels, equity income from the equity-accounted joint venture and certain other non-cash items. The Company includes FCF from equity-accounted joint venture as a component of its FCF. FCF from the equity-accounted joint venture represents the Company's proportionate share of FCF from its equity-accounted joint venture. The Company does not control its equity-accounted joint venture, and as a result, the Company does not have the unilateral ability to determine whether the cash generated by its equity-accounted joint venture is retained within the entity in which the Company holds the equity-accounted joint venture or distributed to the Company and other owners. In addition, the Company does not control the timing of such distributions to the Company and other owners. Consequently, readers are cautioned when using FCF as a liquidity measure as the amount contributed from FCF from the equity-accounted joint venture may not be available to the Company in the periods such FCF is generated by the equity-accounted joint venture. FCF is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors and management to evaluate the Company's financial and operating performance and to assess the Company's ability to generate cash sufficient to repay debt, pay dividends and undertake capital and dry-dock expenditures. Please refer to Appendix B to this release for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure reflected in the Company's consolidated financial statements.

Net revenues represent revenues less voyage expenses. Because the amount of voyage expenses the Company incurs for a particular charter depends upon the type of the charter, the Company uses net revenues to improve the comparability between periods of reported revenues that are generated by the different types of charters and contracts. The Company principally uses net revenues, a non-GAAP financial measure, because the Company believes it provides more meaningful information about the deployment of the Company's vessels and their performance than does revenues, the most directly comparable financial measure under GAAP.

  1. Voyage expenses incurred that are recoverable from the Company's customers in connection with its voyage charter contracts are reflected in voyage charter revenues and voyage expenses. The Company recast the results for the three months ended March 2019 to be consistent with the presentation in the 2019 20-F and this report for the three months ended March 31, 2020. This had the impact of increasing both voyage charter revenues and voyage expenses by $5.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019.
     
  2. Voyage charter revenues include revenues earned from full service lightering activities. Voyage expenses include certain costs associated with full service lightering activities, which include: short-term in-charter expenses, bunker fuel expenses and other port expenses totaling $18.7 million, $12.0 million and $11.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, December 31, 2019 and March 31, 2019, respectively.
     
  3. Other revenues include lightering support and liquefied natural gas services revenue, revenue earned from the Company's responsibilities in employing the vessels subject to the RSAs, and bunker commissions earned. In April 2020, the Company sold a portion of its oil and gas ship-to-ship transfer support business, including its gas terminal management services.
     
  4. Includes realized gains on interest rate swaps of $0.5 million, $0.4 million and $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, December 31, 2019 and March 31, 2019, respectively. The Company also recognized realized gains of $1.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, relating to its forward freight agreements.
     
  5. Equity income relates to the Company's 50 percent interest in the High-Q Investment Ltd. (High-Q) joint venture, which owns one VLCC tanker.
     
  6. Income tax expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2019 includes adjustments to freight tax accruals of $10.9 million related to periods prior to 2019.
     
  7. The number of shares and per share amounts, including comparative figures, have been adjusted to reflect the changes resulting from the one-for-eight reverse stock split which took effect on November 25, 2019.
