Other Developments

During the second quarter of 2020, the Company agreed with certain of its lenders to defer a portion of its 2020 loan repayments to be repaid together with the respective balloon installments. A total of $4.7 million was rescheduled to December 2021 or within 2022. Furthermore, the Company agreed with the holders of its Series B Preferred Shares to have the option of paying the quarterly dividends in-kind, for the period from April 1, 2020 to January 29, 2021, by issuing additional Series B Preferred Shares and increasing the dividend rate to 9% (from 8%) if paid in-kind.

During July 2020, the Company completed the sale of three of its vessels, M/V Manolis P, M/V EM Oinousses and M/V Kuo Hsiung for a total of approximately $7.6 million of net proceeds of which $7.0 million was used to repay the outstanding loans of the vessels.

Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of Euroseas commented: "The second quarter of 2020 turned out to be highly profitable despite the challenges of the pandemic which affected the charter rates of our vessels in the second half of the period and the numerous operational difficulties that we encountered. We have responded quickly to address the possibility of cash flow squeeze issues by agreeing with certain of our banks to defer installments and relax restricted cash covenants in case such liquidity is needed. At the same time, certain planned sales of our vessels for scrap were delayed and eventually completed in Q3 at lower prices, as a result of lockdowns and declines in scrap steel demand. In addition, port lockdowns have affected our ability to change crew on board our vessels. We have taken relevant measures to ensure our crew members' and shore employees' health and safety, despite the ongoing hurdles and travel restrictions imposed by lockdowns around the world.

"Looking forward, however, we are encouraged with the starting recovery of the charter market in late July 2020, but we still believe that the economic uncertainties remain high due to both the possibility of recurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic and the continuing trade tensions between the U.S. and China, which affect the containership markets. The record low orderbook remains a positive characteristic of the containership sector which would allow a resumption of trade to normal levels to be translated in much improved market rates. In the meantime, our focus remains on ensuring that our vessels remain employed. On the strategic front, we continue to evaluate opportunities for mergers with other fleets or vessel acquisitions by issuing shares at non-dilutive levels."

Tasos Aslidis, Chief Financial Officer of Euroseas commented: "The results of the second quarter of 2020 reflect the significantly increased net revenues  compared to the same period of 2019, as we operated an average of 19.0 vessels, versus 11.0 vessels during the same period last year, even though two of our vessels remained idle during the quarter waiting to be scrapped. Our results have also benefitted from other income of $2.7 million, net related to insurance proceeds for our vessel M/V EM Oinousses, which had been idle since January 2020 and compensated for the costs and LOH incurred both in Q1 and Q2.

"Total daily vessel operating expenses, including management fees, general and administrative expenses but excluding drydocking costs, averaged $6,120 per vessel per day during the second quarter of 2020 as compared to $6,423 per vessel per day for the same quarter of last year, and $6,003 per vessel per day for the first half of 2020 as compared to $6,324 per vessel per day for the same period of 2019, reflecting a 4.7% and 5.1% decrease, respectively, which is attributed to the different composition of our fleet during the periods. As always, we want to emphasize that cost control remains a key component of our strategy."

"Adjusted EBITDA during the second quarter of 2020 was $4.4 million versus $1.6 million in the second quarter of last year.  As of June 30, 2020, our outstanding debt (excluding the unamortized loan fees) was $84.3 million versus restricted and unrestricted cash of $3.9 million. As of the same date, our scheduled bank debt repayments over the next 12 months amounted to about $13.4 million (excluding the unamortized loan fees), and we are in compliance with all our loan covenants."

Second Quarter 2020 Results:
For the second quarter of 2020, the Company reported total net revenues of $13.5 million representing a 67.2% increase over total net revenues of $8.1 million during the second quarter of 2019 which was a result of the increased average number of vessels in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the same period of 2019. Market charter rates during the second quarter of 2020 were on average at higher levels for our containership vessels compared to the corresponding period in 2019 due to the different composition of our fleet, which in the second quarter of 2020 contained younger and larger vessels on average compared to the corresponding period in 2019, which was also reflected in the average earnings of our ships. The Company reported net income for the period of $1.3 million and net income attributable to common shareholders of $1.1 million, as compared to a net loss of $0.7 million and a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $1.7 million, respectively, for the same period of 2019. Drydocking expenses amounted to $0.4 million during the second quarter of 2020 as one vessel passed its intermediate survey in water and another vessel its special survey in-water. In the corresponding period of 2019, one vessel passed its intermediate survey in-water. Depreciation expenses for the second quarter of 2020 amounted to $1.7 million compared to $0.8 million for the same period of 2019. Vessel operating expenses were $8.5 million in the second quarter of 2020 as compared to $5.0 million for the second quarter of 2019, mainly due to the increased average number of vessels operated due to the increased number of vessels in the Company's fleet. General and administrative expenses amounted to $0.8 million for the second quarter of 2020 marginally higher compared to $0.7 million for the second quarter of 2019. On average, 19.0 vessels were owned and operated during the second quarter of 2020 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $9,458 per day compared to 11.0 vessels in the same period of 2019 earning on average $8,307 per day.

Interest and other financing costs for the second quarter of 2020 amounted to $1.1 million compared to $0.8 million for the same period of 2019. Interest during the second quarter of 2020 was higher due to higher average outstanding debt during the period as compared to the same period of last year, partly offset by the decreased Libor rates of our bank loans during the period as compared to the same period of last year.   

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2020 was $4.4 million compared to $1.6 million achieved during the second quarter of 2019.

Basic and diluted earnings per share attributable to common shareholders for the second quarter of 2020 was $0.20 calculated on 5,576,960 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding, compared to basic and diluted loss per share of $1.12 for the second quarter of 2019, calculated on 1,542,508 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 loss on derivatives and the amortization of below time market charters acquired, the adjusted earnings per share attributable to common shareholders for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 would have been $0.25, compared to adjusted loss of $1.14 per share basic and diluted for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. Usually, security analysts do not include the above items in their published estimates of earnings per share.

First Half 2020 Results:
For the first half of 2020, the Company reported total net revenues of $28.9 million representing a 76.3% increase over total net revenues of $16.4 million during the first half of 2019, as a result of the increased average number of vessels. Market charter rates in the six months of 2020 were on average at higher levels for our containership vessels compared to the first six months of 2019 due to the different composition of our fleet, which in the first six months of 2020 contained younger and larger vessels on average compared to the corresponding period in 2019, which was also reflected in the average earnings of our ships. The Company reported net income for the period of $3.2 million and net income attributable to common shareholders of $2.9 million, as compared to a net loss of $0.8 million and a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $2.2 million respectively, for the first half of 2019. Depreciation expenses for the first half of 2020 were $3.4 million compared to $1.6 million during the same period of 2019. On average, 19.0 vessels were owned and operated during the first half of 2020 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $9,541 per day compared to 11.0 vessels in the same period of 2019 earning on average $8,693 per day.

Interest and other financing costs for the first half of 2020 amounted to $2.4 million compared to $1.5 million for the same period of 2019. This increase is due to the increased amount of debt in the current period compared to the same period of 2019, partly offset by the decreased Libor rates of our bank loans during the period as compared to the same period of last year. 

Adjusted EBITDA for the first half of 2020 was $8.4 million compared to $3.0 million achieved during the first half of 2019.

Basic and diluted earnings per share attributable to common shareholders for the first half of 2020 was $0.52, calculated on 5,576,960 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding compared to basic and diluted loss per share of $1.44 for the first half of 2019, calculated on 1,542,508 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding. 

Excluding the effect on the income attributable to common shareholders for the first half of the year of the unrealized loss on derivatives and the amortization of below market time charters acquired, the adjusted earnings per share attributable to common shareholders for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020 would have been $0.42, compared to adjusted net loss of $1.47 per share basic and diluted for the same period in 2019. As mentioned above, usually, security analysts do not include the above items in their published estimates of earnings per share.

(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. 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, vessels committed for sale or vessels that suffered unrepaired damages are days associated with scheduled repairs, drydockings or special or intermediate surveys or days of vessels in lay-up, or of vessels that were committed for sale or suffered unrepaired damages.

(4) Available days. We define available days as the Calendar days in a period net of scheduled off-hire days including 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 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 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 are calculated by dividing general and administrative expenses 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 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, 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.

Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation:
Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted EBITDA to represent net (loss) / income before interest, income taxes, depreciation, (gain) / loss on interest rate swaps, amortization of below market time charters acquired, and loss on write down of vessel held for sale. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net (loss)/income, as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. 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 this non- GAAP financial measure assists our management and investors by increasing the comparability of our performance from period to period by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods, of financial costs, (gain)/ loss on interest rate swaps, depreciation, amortization of below market time charters acquired, and loss on write down of vessel held for sale. 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) / income and Adjusted (loss) / earnings per share Reconciliation:
Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted net (loss) / income to represent net (loss) / income before unrealized gain / loss on derivatives and amortization of below market time charters acquired. Adjusted net (loss) / income and Adjusted (loss) / earnings 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 unrealized gain / loss on derivatives and amortization of below market time charters acquired, which items may significantly affect results of operations between periods. 

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