Global Ship Lease Reports Results for the Third Quarter of 2016

LONDON, Oct. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Ship Lease, Inc. (NYSE:GSL) (the “Company”), a containership charter owner, announced today its unaudited results for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Third Quarter and Year To Date Highlights

  • Reported revenue of $41.2 million for the third quarter 2016. Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $125.1 million

  • Reported net loss(1) of $23.7 million for the third quarter 2016, after a $29.4 million non-cash impairment charge in respect to two vessels. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, net loss was $13.1 million after the impairment charge

  • Excluding the non-cash impairment, normalized net income(1)(2) was $5.2 million for the third quarter 2016. Normalized net income was $16.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016

  • Generated $28.1 million of adjusted EBITDA(2) for the third quarter 2016. Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $86.2 million

  • Agreed with CMA CGM to extend the charters of the Marie Delmas and Kumasi, two 2,207-TEU vessels, for a period of up to 3.25 years, at GSL's option. A revised rate of $13,000 per day applies from August 1, 2016 until the charters' previous earliest expiry dates in September 2017, after which Global Ship Lease has three consecutive option periods, the first of 1.25 years and the second and third of one year each, through December 31, 2020 at a rate of $9,800 per day

Ian Webber, Chief Executive Officer of Global Ship Lease, stated, “Our reliable cashflows and high-quality operating performance in the third quarter of 2016 once again demonstrated the stability and value of our long-term, fixed-rate chartering strategy. At a time when market conditions continue to be extremely challenging for both owners and operators, Global Ship Lease remains fully insulated from the market through late 2017. We were pleased during the quarter to reduce our market exposure by successfully securing extensions for two of our earliest expiring charters through late 2020.”

Mr. Webber continued, “Despite difficult market conditions in the near term, the combined effect of record levels of vessel scrapping and low levels of new vessel ordering is moving the market for mid-sized and smaller containerships in the direction of equilibrium. Our financial strength and the stability and forward visibility afforded by our contracted cashflows position us to benefit from the eventual recovery. In the interim, we believe that we can maximize shareholder value by continuing our disciplined and highly selective pursuit of accretive, charter-attached growth opportunities, while also opportunistically delevering our balance sheet.”

Revenue and Utilization

The fleet generated revenue from fixed rate, mainly long-term time charters of $41.2 million in the three months ended September 30, 2016, down $1.0 million from revenue of $42.2 million for the comparative period in 2015, due mainly to reduced revenue as a consequence of the disposals of Ville d’Aquarius and Ville d’Orion in fourth quarter 2015 and increased levels of offhire from regulatory drydockings, and partly offset by the addition of OOCL Ningbo from September 17, 2015 at a daily charter rate of $34,500. There were 1,656 ownership days in the quarter, down 6.0% from 1,762 in the comparable period in 2015. In the third quarter 2016, there was no unplanned offhire and 38 days of planned offhire from regulatory drydockings, giving an overall utilization of 97.7%. In the comparable 2015 period, there were 1,762 ownership days and only one day offhire, which was unplanned, giving an overall utilization of 99.9%.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, revenue was $125.1 million, up $4.2 million from revenue of $120.9 million in the comparative period of 2015, mainly due to the additions of OOCL Qingdao from March 11, 2015 and OOCL Ningbo from September 17, 2015, as above, offset by the effect of the disposals of Ville d’Aquarius and Ville d’Orion and substantially higher offhire from planned drydockings in 2016.

The table below shows fleet utilization for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, and for the years ended December 31, 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012.

Utilization 97.7% 99.9% 98.2% 99.7% 99.6% 98.0% 99.5% 98.4%

Five regulatory drydockings have been completed in the nine months to September 30, 2016; one further regulatory drydocking is planned for fourth quarter 2016. There was only one drydocking in 2015, in the first quarter.

Vessel Operating Expenses

Vessel operating expenses, which include costs of crew, lubricating oil, spares and insurance, were $11.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 compared to $12.7 million in the comparative period. The absolute reduction is due to lower ownership days following the disposals of Ville d’Aquarius and Ville d’Orion. The average cost per ownership day in the quarter was $7,103 compared to $7,233 for the comparative period, down $130 per day or 1.8%. The reduction is primarily attributable to reduced crew costs and insurance costs on renewal, together with the elimination of the relatively high costs related to the operation of Ville d’Aquarius and Ville d’Orion, and partly offset by costs incurred in drydockings that are expensed rather than capitalized.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, vessel operating expenses were $34.5 million or an average of $6,991 per day, compared to $37.9 million in the comparative period or $7,376 per day. The $385 reduction, or 5.2%, reduction in vessel operating expenses per day is due mainly to reasons noted above.

Depreciation

Depreciation for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $10.6 million, compared to $11.5 million in the third quarter 2015; the reduction is attributable to a reduced number of vessels in the fleet.

Depreciation for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $32.4 million, compared to $33.9 million in the comparative period of 2015, the decrease again due to a reduced number of vessels in the fleet.

Impairment

The Company’s accounting policies require that tangible fixed assets such as vessels are reviewed individually for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying amounts may not be recoverable. On August 10, 2016, the Company agreed with CMA CGM to amend and extend the charters of the Marie Delmas and Kumasi. A revised rate of $13,000 per day applies from August 1, 2016 until the charters' previous earliest expiry dates in September 2017, after which the Company has three consecutive option periods, the first of 1.25 years and the second and third of one year each, through December 31, 2020 at a rate of $9,800 per day. These amendments triggered the performance of an impairment test on these two vessels as at August 1, 2016.

A non-cash impairment charge of $29.4 million has been recognized in the quarter ended September 30, 2016 as the sum of the expected undiscounted future cash flows from these assets over their estimated remaining useful lives is less than the carrying amounts. The impairment charge is equal to the amount by which the assets’ carrying amounts exceed their fair values. Fair value is the net present value of estimated future cash flows discounted by an appropriate discount rate.

Following receipt of notices of re-delivery for Ville d’Aquarius and Ville d’Orion, the Company’s two oldest vessels and the Company’s assessment of the vessels’ re-chartering prospects, sales of the vessels were completed on November 5, and December 8, 2015 respectively, for total net proceeds of approximately $9.3 million. The vessels were written down as at September 30, 2015 by $44.7 million to their estimated net realizable value, including estimated selling costs.

General and Administrative Costs

General and administrative costs were $1.4 million in the three months ended September 30, 2016, compared to $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2015.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, general and administrative costs were $4.6 million, compared to $4.9 million for the 2015 period.

Other Operating Income

Other operating income in the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $32,000, compared to $93,000 in the third quarter of 2015.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, other operating income was $0.2 million, compared to $0.3 million in the comparative period.

Adjusted EBITDA

As a result of the above, Adjusted EBITDA was $28.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016, up from $28.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 as lower vessel operating costs offset lower revenue from increased levels of planned dry-docking.

Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $86.2 million, compared to $78.5 million for the comparative period; an increase of 9.8%, due mainly to the acquisitions of OOCL Qingdao and OOCL Ningbo.

Interest Expense

Debt at September 30, 2016 comprised amounts outstanding on our Notes, the revolving credit facility which was drawn March 11, 2015, and the secured term loan which was drawn September 10, 2015.

Interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2016, was $11.1 million, down $1.0 million on the interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2015 of $12.1 million. The reduction is mainly due to reduced interest on our 10.0% Notes following the repurchase of $26.7 million principal amount of the Notes in March 2016 and the $0.5 million gain realized in August 2016 on the purchase in the open market of $5.0 million principal amount of the Notes, offset by interest on the secured term loan drawn in the third quarter of 2015 and higher amortization of deferred financing charges and the original issue discount on the Notes, occasioned by the reduction in the principal amount of Notes outstanding.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, interest expense was $35.3 million, For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, interest expense was $35.7 million. The decrease is due to the effect of drawing on the secured term loan in September 2015, $0.5 million premium paid in March 2016 in relation to the tender offer which retired approximately $26.7 million of Notes, and accelerated write-off of the portion of deferred financing charges and the original issue discount attributable to Notes which were purchased and retired, partially offset by lower interest on the Notes following the tender offer and market purchases and the $1.0 million gains realized in May and August 2016 on the market purchases of Notes.

Interest income for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $57,000, up from $19,000 in the comparative period of 2015 due to higher cash balances. Interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $139,000 compared to $46,000 in the comparative period.

Taxation

Taxation for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $17,000, compared to $9,000 in the third quarter of 2015.

Taxation for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $32,000, compared to $39,000 for the comparative period in 2015.

Earnings Allocated to Preferred Shares

The Series B Preferred Shares carry a coupon of 8.75%, the cost of which for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $0.8 million, the same as in the comparative period.

The cost in the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $2.3 million, the same as in the comparative period.

Net Loss/Income Available to Common Shareholders

Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $23.7 million, after the non-cash impairment charge of $29.4 million related to the Marie Delmas and Kumasi. Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $41.1 million, after the non-cash impairment charge of $44.7 million related to the Ville d’Aquarius and Ville d’Orion.

Normalized net income, which excludes the effect of the non-cash impairment charge, the gain on the purchase of Notes in August 2016 and accelerated amortization of deferred financing charges and original issue discount consequent upon the retirement of Notes, was $5.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016. Normalized net income was $3.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015.

Net loss was $13.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 after the $29.4 million non-cash impairment charge associated with Marie Delmas and Kumasi. Net loss was $38.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 after the $44.7 million non-cash impairment charge associated with Ville d’Aquarius and Ville d’Orion.

Normalized net income, which excludes the effect of the non-cash impairment charges, the premium paid on the tender offer for Notes completed in March 2016, the gain on the purchase of Notes and the accelerated amortization of deferred financing charges and original issue discount consequent upon the retirement of Notes, was $16.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and was $6.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

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, earnings allocated to preferred shares, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and impairment. 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.

Normalized net income represents Net income (loss) adjusted for the unrealized gain (loss) on derivatives, the accelerated write off of a portion of deferred financing costs, impairment charges and gain of redemption of preferred shares. 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 such as change in fair value of derivatives to eliminate the effect of non-cash non-operating items that do not affect operating performance or cash generated. Normalized net income is not defined in US GAAP and should not be considered to be an alternate to Net income (loss) or any other financial metric required by such accounting principles.
