Ultrapetrol Reports Financial Results for Third Quarter 2014

NASSAU, Bahamas, Nov. 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ultrapetrol (Bahamas) Limited (Nasdaq:ULTR), an industrial transportation company serving marine transportation needs in three markets (River Business, Offshore Supply Business and Ocean Business), today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014.

Third Quarter 2014 and subsequent events highlights:

  • Recorded third quarter 2014 revenues of $99.4 million;
  • Recorded adjusted consolidated EBITDA of $13.7 million in the third quarter of 2014, 1 which includes adjusted EBITDA of $13.3 million from our Offshore Supply Business, adjusted EBITDA of $2.2 million from our Ocean Business, adjusted EBITDA nil from our River Business, and negative adjusted EBITDA of $(1.7) million from other activities – primarily foreign currency exchange cash losses;
  • Operating loss for the third quarter 2014 was $(3.1) million;
  • Recorded total adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share of $(9.5) million and $(0.07), respectively, in the third quarter of 2014, which excludes the effect of a $0.4 million gain for deferred taxes on unrealized foreign exchange gains on U.S. dollar-denominated debt of our Brazilian subsidiary in our Offshore Supply Business; excludes a $0.1 million gain related to the sale of dry barges which were subsequently leased back to the Company (for accounting purposes, the gain from the sale is being deferred over the term of the lease up to the present value of the lease payments); and excludes a $(5.7) million loss related to the Sparrow SPA closing termination payments. 2 Before adjusting for these effects, the recorded total net loss and net loss per share are $(14.6) million and $(0.10), respectively;
  • In August, our PSVs UP Opal and UP Safira (whose previous contract expired in September 2014) were awarded and confirmed by the directors of Petrobras four-year time charter contracts at approximately $31,000 and $30,000 per day, respectively;
  • On September 3, 2014, the share purchase transaction with respect to the sale of shares of the Company between the major shareholders of the Company was closed under terms previously announced on July 13, 2014. In the transaction, Sparrow Capital Investments Ltd. ("Sparrow"), a subsidiary of Southern Cross Latin America Private Equity Funds III and IV ("Southern Cross"), purchased all of the Company's outstanding equity interests held by Hazels (Bahamas) Investments Inc. ("Hazels"), Inversiones Los Avellanos S.A. ("Los Avellanos") and certain entities affiliated with them ("SIPSA"), increasing Southern Cross' interest in the Company from 67% to 85%. Under the terms of the agreement, Sparrow acquired from Hazels, Los Avellanos, and certain entities affiliated with them, the rights to 25,326,821 shares of common stock of the Company ("Common Stock") at a price equivalent to $4.00 per share of Common Stock. With the completion of the transaction, the equity capital of the Company is now comprised exclusively of shares with equal voting rights of one vote per share. As previously announced, as part of the transaction, Felipe Menéndez and Ricardo Menéndez stepped down from their respective CEO and Executive Vice President positions, but remain with the Company as directors. Following Southern Cross' acquisition, the Company's Board of Directors selected Damián Scokin to become the Company's new Chief Executive Officer, starting November 2014 (a position he assumed on November 10, 2014). Until that time, Horacio Reyser, the Company's Chairman and a Partner at Southern Cross Group, served as Interim CEO; and
  • In October, our UP Safira commenced operations under its recently renewed four-year charter at $30,000 per day.

2 For a detailed explanation of these adjustments and other adjustments elsewhere in this release, see "Overview of Financial Results" and the tables included under the Supplemental Information section of this release.

Horacio Reyser, Ultrapetrol's Chairman and Interim Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Our results for the third quarter were impacted primarily by lower than expected tons of cargo transported in the River as a consequence of significant operational issues with a higher number of unavailable pushboats, strongly impacting our transportation capacity. In addition, softer than expected North Sea spot rates in the Offshore Supply Business have reduced our earnings in the period. In both of these situations, the Company has proactively taken steps to improve future performance and increase the earnings power of the fleet, as we seek to take full advantage of the compelling fundamentals of our businesses and create long-term shareholder value."

Mr. Reyser continued, "In the Offshore Business, the Company secured two vessels on multi-year time charters with Petrobras during the quarter. Specifically, the UP Opal, currently employed in the North Sea, was awarded a four-year time charter with Petrobras at a daily charter hire of $31,000 per day, which is scheduled to commence during the first quarter of 2015 and the UP Safira commencing a new four-year time charter with Petrobras at $30,000 per day on October 2014. In addition, the UP Coral, which is also employed in the North Sea, is being converted into an RSV capable of supporting subsea operations after the installation of a specially designed crane and other equipment. Once complete, these modifications will significantly enhance the UP Coral's earnings power and enable the vessel to commence, with a joint venture partner, a six-year time charter with Petrobras at a rate of $87,000 per day (which includes the remuneration to our JV partner and is subject to Petrobras' board approval).

"We have also taken steps in the River Business by completing the conversion of the seventh heavy fuel boat which entered into Operation in September and adding two port pushboats to replace old third party pushboats. Furthermore, we strongly believe in continuing to focus our attention on customer service, operating processes, management practices and IT systems to provide a higher level of reliability, performance and cost efficiency while improving our margins further capitalizing on our leadership position in the Hidrovia River."

Mr. Reyser concluded, "We are pleased to welcome Damian Scokin as our new Chief Executive Officer. His extensive experience and leadership in the South American Transportation and Logistics industries will greatly benefit Ultrapetrol as he executes a growth strategy to capitalize on Ultrapetrol's strong fundamentals and benefit the Company's shareholders. The growth prospects for Ultrapetrol's core businesses are strong, and we believe that Damian is uniquely qualified to maximize the value of the opportunities ahead."

Damian Scokin, Chief Executive Officer of Ultrapetrol, stated, "I am thrilled to join the experienced team at Ultrapetrol and look forward to leading the Company as we seek to fully realize the growth potential and long-term earnings power of our core businesses. The company has a long history of success and has made great strides in strengthening its balance sheet and growth prospects in recent years. I look forward to identifying further avenues for accretive growth, as well as engaging in an open and transparent dialogue with the investment community."

Overview of Financial Results

Total revenues for the third quarter of 2014 were $99.4 million as compared with $112.6 million in the same period of 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2014 was $13.7 million as compared with $30.2 million in the same period of 2013. For a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to cash flows from operating activities, please see the tables at the end of this release.

Recorded total adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share of $(9.5) million and $(0.07), respectively, in the third quarter of 2014, which excludes the effect of a $0.4 million gain for deferred taxes on unrealized foreign exchange gains on U.S. dollar-denominated debt of our Brazilian subsidiary in our Offshore Supply Business; excludes a $0.1 million gain related to the sale of dry barges which were subsequently leased back to the Company (for accounting purposes, the gain from the sale is being deferred over the term of the lease up to the present value of the lease payments); and excludes a $(5.7) million loss related to the Sparrow SPA closing termination payments.2 Before adjusting for these effects, the recorded total net loss and net loss per share are $(14.6) million and $(0.10), respectively.

Cecilia Yad, Ultrapetrol's Chief Financial Officer, said, "The Company maintains a strong liquidity position and has taken important steps to enhance long-term cash flow visibility, signing of multi-year time charters in the Offshore Supply Business while reducing volatility in the River Business by entering into agreements which do not depend on agricultural cycle and are set on a take or pay basis, as the Iron Ore transshipment station or the long-term (5 years) time charter, both with Vale. The long-term stability of these cash flows enables us to pursue strategic initiatives, that will materially increase the value and earnings power of our high-quality fleet."

Business Segment Highlights

River

Third quarter 2014 River Business segment adjusted EBITDA was nil as compared to an adjusted EBITDA of $11.4 million in the same period of 2013, representing a $11.4 million decrease. A significant portion of this difference results from third party barge sales which decreased from ten units in the third quarter of 2013 for third parties to none in the third quarter of 2014. This reduction in the number of barges delivered to third parties produced a reduction in revenues of $13.8 million when comparing the third quarter of 2013 with the same period of 2014. The shipyard is currently producing barges for our own fleet which has no immediate effect on our consolidated EBITDA since barges are accounted for at cost. In addition, during the third quarter of 2014, as in most of the year, we had fewer operational pushboats on average as compared to the equivalent period of 2013. When comparing volumes transported and gross revenues for the third quarter of 2014 with the equivalent period of 2013 the fact that four pushboats and 100 barges have been placed on time charter to Vale in 2014 should be considered since the time charter revenues are paid on a daily basis instead of a freight per metric ton and are net of fuel and port expenses.

The seventh and last of the existing re-engined pushboats commenced operations in the fourth quarter of 2014. This program has demonstrated its potential to reduce fuel expense and to increase both tow size and navigation speed, which we believe will enhance our EBITDA margins in the future.

Offshore Supply

In August, our PSVs UP Opal and UP Safira (whose previous contract expired in September 2014) were formally awarded four-year contracts with Petrobras at $31,000 and $30,000, respectively. UP Opal can be delivered in our option up to April 2015, while the UP Safira has entered into its new charter during October in direct continuation of her current employment.

In the Offshore Supply Business, we operate a fleet of fourteen PSVs, eleven of which are contracted on long-term time charters to Petrobras in Brazil. One more vessel (UP Coral) has been pre awarded with Petrobras in a tender to act as an RSV subsea support vessel for six years, for which we are awaiting formal approval from Petrobras' Board. We expect that this vessel will commence service under this new contract starting in the second quarter of 2015. Meanwhile our three new PSVs (UP Agate, UP Coral and UP Opal) have temporarily operated in the North Sea, prior to commencing multi-year time charters for two of those vessels in Brazil in the first half of 2015.

The adjusted EBITDA generated by the Offshore Supply Business segment during the third quarter of 2014 was $13.3 million, compared to $12.7 million in the same period of 2013, or a 5% increase. For a reconciliation of segment adjusted EBITDA to operating profit (loss), please see the tables at the end of this release.

Total revenues from our Offshore Supply Business for the third quarter of 2014 increased by $7.8 million to $33.0 million as compared with $25.2 million in the same period of 2013. This 31% increase was primarily attributable to a combined increase in revenues of our UP Agate, UP Coral and UP Opal which commenced operations in the North Sea on April 11, April 25, and May 3, 2014, respectively, and to an increase in revenues of our UP Amber and UP Pearl which commenced operations with Petrobras on August 1, 2013, and November 25, 2013, respectively; partially offset by a decrease in revenues of our UP Turquoise related to higher offhire days during the third quarter of 2014, UP Jasper related to lower rates prevailing in the UK North Sea, and UP Topazio related to less operational days, as compared to the same period of 2013.

Ocean

The Ocean Business segment generated adjusted EBITDA of $2.2 million in the third quarter of 2014 as compared to $0.7 million in the same period of 2013, a $1.5 million increase. For a reconciliation of segment adjusted EBITDA to operating profit (loss), please see the tables at the end of this release.

Revenues from the Ocean Business decreased by $1.0 million or 5% to $17.7 million in the third quarter of 2014 as compared to $18.7 million the same period of 2013.

The Company operated two container vessels in its flag protected feeder container service in South America and a total of four vessels in its Product Tanker fleet in the third quarter of 2014 (Miranda I, Amadeo, Alejandrina, and Austral), which (except for the Alejandrina) continue to be employed on charters with oil majors in the same flag-protected South American coastal trade in which they have operated in the past. By the end of September 2014 we received the Alejandrina back from her previous charterers and she has now been laid up for maintenance in Argentina. We expect her to be back in operation by March 2015.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Ultrapetrol believes that the disclosed non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or non-GAAP, measures such as adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and any other adjustments thereto, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP measures, are useful for investors to use in evaluating the liquidity of the company. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of liquidity prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to segment operating profit and cash flow from operations is presented in the tables that accompany this press release.
