Management Commentary

Athanasios Feidakis, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Globus Maritime Limited, stated:

“We are happy to return to a positive EBITDA territory in 2017! The market has been very challenging in the past few years but finally there is a glimpse of hope. In 2017 we took significant steps to reduce our debt and improve the quality of our operations with satisfactory results.

“The general market opinion is positive and we are pleased that it is moving out of the twilight zone.

“Current Charter rates are healthy and the futures/FFA curves suggest further strengthening. Since we maintain a versatile approach on the employment of our vessels, it is easy for us to focus on taking advantage of the improved rate market.

“We are optimistic in the continuous strength of the world economy as well as the restrain in newbuilding orders, and we consider both good omens for the medium term.

“Our strategy going forward is to employ our ships on short-medium term contracts and enjoy rates above cash breakeven.

“As the market returns to healthier levels we will then start looking at fleet renewals within 2018.”

Management Discussion and Analysis of the Results of Operations

Fourth quarter of the year 2017 compared to the fourth quarter of the year 2016

Total comprehensive loss for the fourth quarter of the year 2017 amounted to $1.3 million or $0.04 basic loss per share based on 30,503,159 weighted average number of shares, compared to total comprehensive loss of $2.5 million for the same period last year or $0.93 basic loss per share based on 2,627,674 weighted average number of shares.

The following table corresponds to the breakdown of the factors that led to the increase of total comprehensive loss during the fourth quarter of 2017 compared to the corresponding quarter in 2016 (expressed in $000’s):

Voyage revenues
During the three-month period ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, our revenue reached $4.1 million and $2.4 million respectively. The 71% increase in Voyage revenues was mainly attributed to the increase in the average time charter rates achieved by our vessels during the fourth quarter of 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. Time Charter Equivalent rate (TCE) for the fourth quarter of 2017 amounted to $8,112 per vessel per day against $4,793 per vessel per day during the same period in 2016 corresponding to an increase of 69%.

Vessel operating expenses
Vessel operating expenses, which include crew costs, provisions, deck and engine stores, lubricating oils, insurance, maintenance, and repairs, reached $2.4 million and $2.3 million during the three month period ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. The breakdown of our operating expenses for the quarters ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 was as follows:

Average daily operating expenses during the three-month periods ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 were $5,267 per vessel per day and $5,088 per vessel per day respectively, corresponding to an increase of 4%.

Total administrative expenses
Total administrative expenses decreased by $0.2 million or 47% to $0.3 million during the three month period ended December 31, 2017 compared to $0.5 million during the same period in 2016. The increased figure during the fourth quarter of 2016 is mainly attributed to consulting and legal fees of the Company.

Voyage revenues
During the year ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, our Voyage revenue reached $14.4 million and $8.7 million respectively. The 66% increase in revenue was mainly attributed to the increase in the average time charter rates achieved by our vessels during the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. Time Charter Equivalent rate (TCE) for the year 2017 amounted to $6,993 per vessel per day against $3,962 per vessel per day during the year 2016 corresponding to an increase of 77%.

Voyage expenses
Voyage expenses reached $1.9 million during the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to $1.3 million during the year 2016. Voyage expenses include commissions on revenue, port and other voyage expenses and bunker expenses. Bunker expenses mainly refer to the cost of bunkers consumed during periods that our vessels are travelling seeking employment. Voyage expenses for the year 2017 and 2016 are analyzed as follows:

In $000’s 2017 2016

Average daily operating expenses during the year ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 were $5,005 per vessel per day and $4,553 per vessel per day respectively, corresponding to an increase of 10%.

Gain from sale of subsidiary
In March 2016, the Company entered into an agreement with Commerzbank to sell the shares of Kelty Marine Ltd., to an unaffiliated third party and apply the total net proceeds from the sale towards the respective loan facility. Based on certain financial conditions agreed to beforehand with the Bank this resulted in the remaining principal amount of the loan to be written off. The financial effect from the sale of Kelty Marine Ltd. resulted to a gain of $2.3 million.

Interest expense and finance costs
Interest expense and finance costs reached $2.2 million during the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to $2.7 million during the year 2016. The decrease is mainly attributed to the conversion of $20 million of outstanding principal of two loans to 20 million shares, as described in the Share and Warrant Purchase Agreement that we entered on February 8, 2017. The weighted average interest rate on our debt outstanding during the year ended December 31, 2017 reached 3.8% compared to 3.5% during the year 2016. Our debt outstanding for the year ended 2017 was $41.7 million compared to $65.8 million for the year ended 2016. Interest expense and finance costs for the year 2017 and 2016 are analyzed as follows:

In $000’s 2017 2016
Interest payable on long-term borrowings1,7782,430
Bank charges3433
Amortization of debt discount84128

Total2,2212,676

Liquidity and capital resources
As of December 31, 2017 and 2016, our cash and bank balances and bank deposits were $2.8 million and $0.2 million respectively.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $0.6 million compared to net cash used in operating activities of $3.6 million during the year 2016. The $4.2 million increase in our cash from operations was mainly attributed to the $5.2 million increase in our adjusted EBITDA from $3.5 million adjusted LBITDA during the year 2016 to adjusted EBITDA of $1.7 million during the year under consideration.

Net cash generated from/(used in) financing activities during the three-month and twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 were as follows:

As of December 31, 2017, we and our vessel-owning subsidiaries had outstanding borrowings under our Loan agreement with DVB Bank SE and HSH Nordbank AG of an aggregate of $41.7 million compared to $65.8 million as of December 31, 2016, gross of unamortized debt discount.

Amended agreements with the banks
In June and July 2017 the Company agreed the restructure of its loan agreements with DVB Bank SE and HSH Nordbank AG, respectively. By these agreements the Company was successful in achieving waivers and relaxations on its loan covenants as well as deferring instalment loan payments due in 2017.

Share and warrant purchase agreement
As previously reported, the Company on February 8, 2017 entered into a Share and Warrant Purchase Agreement pursuant to which it sold for $5 million an aggregate of 5 million of its common shares, par value $0.004 per share and warrants to purchase 25 million of its common shares at a price of $1.60 per share to a number of investors in a private placement. These securities were issued in transactions exempt from registration under the Securities Act. On February 9, 2017, the Company entered into a registration rights agreement with those purchasers providing them with certain rights relating to registration under the Securities Act of the Shares and the common shares underlying the Warrants.

In connection with the closing of the February 2017 private placement, the Company also entered into two loan amendment agreements with existing lenders.

One loan amendment agreement was entered into by the Company with Firment Trading Limited (“Firment”), an affiliate of the Company’s chairman, and the lender of the Firment Credit Facility, which then had an outstanding principal amount of $18.5 million. Firment released an amount equal to $16.9 million (but left an amount equal to $1.6 million outstanding, which continued to accrue interest under the Firment Credit Facility as though it were principal) of the Firment Credit Facility and the Company issued to Firment Shipping Inc., an affiliate of Firment, 16,885,000 common shares and a warrant to purchase 6,230,580 common shares at a price of $1.60 per share. Subsequent to the closing of the February 2017 private placement, Globus repaid the outstanding amount on the Firment Credit Facility in its entirety. The Firment Credit Facility expired on April 12, 2017.

The other loan amendment agreement was entered into by the Company with Silaner Investments Limited (“Silaner”), an affiliate of the Company’s chairman, and the lender of the Silaner Credit Facility. Silaner released an amount equal to the outstanding principal of $3.1 million (but left an amount equal to $0.1 million outstanding, which continued to accrue interest under the Silaner Credit Facility as though it were principal) of the Silaner Credit Facility and the Company issued to Firment Shipping Inc., an affiliate of Silaner, 3,115,000 common shares and a warrant to purchase 1,149,437 common shares at a price of $1.60 per share. Subsequent to the closing of the February 2017 private placement, Globus repaid the outstanding amount on the Silaner Credit Facility in its entirety. The Silaner Credit Facility expired on January 12, 2018.

Each of the above mentioned warrants are exercisable for 24 months after their respective issuance. Under the terms of the warrants, all warrant holders (other than Firment Shipping Inc., which has no such restriction in its warrants) may not exercise their warrants to the extent such exercise would cause such warrant holder, together with its affiliates and attribution parties, to beneficially own a number of common shares which would exceed 4.99% (which may be increased, but not to exceed 9.99%) of the Company’s then outstanding common shares immediately following such exercise, excluding for purposes of such determination common shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants which have not been exercised. This provision does not limit a warrant holder from acquiring up to 4.99% of the Company’s common shares, selling all of their common shares, and re-acquiring up to 4.99% of the Company’s common shares.

On October 19, 2017, the Company entered into a Share and Warrant Purchase Agreement (the “October 2017 SPA”) pursuant to which it sold for $2.5 million an aggregate of 2.5 million of its common shares, par value $0.004 per share and a warrant (the “October 2017 Warrant”) to purchase 12.5 million of its common shares at a price of $1.60 per share to an investor in a private placement (the “October 2017 Private Placement”). These securities were issued in transactions exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. On that day, Company also entered into a registration rights agreement with the purchaser providing it with certain rights relating to registration under the Securities Act of the 2.5 million common shares issued in connection with the October 2017 Private Placement and the common shares underlying the October 2017 Warrant.

Under the terms of the October 2017 Warrant, the purchaser may not exercise its warrant to the extent such exercise would cause the purchaser, together with its affiliates and attribution parties, to beneficially own a number of common shares which would exceed 4.99% (which may be increased upon no less than 61 days’ notice, but not to exceed 9.99%) of Globus’s then outstanding common shares immediately following such exercise, excluding for purposes of such determination common shares issuable upon exercise of the October 2017 Warrant which have not been exercised. This provision does not limit the purchaser from acquiring up to 4.99% of our common shares, selling all of its common shares, and re-acquiring up to 4.99% of our common shares.

The October 2017 Warrant contains a provision whereby its holder has the right to a cashless exercise if, six months after its issuance, a registration statement covering their resale is not effective. If for any reason the Company is unable to keep such a registration statement active and its share price is higher than the $1.60 exercise price, the Company could be required to issue shares without receiving cash consideration. The October 2017 Warrant is exercisable for 24 months after its issuance. A registration statement covering this transaction was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and became effective on February 8, 2018.

As of December 31, 2017, in connection with the October 2017 SPA, the October 2017 Warrant was outstanding and exercisable for an aggregate of 12,500,000 common shares.

(1) Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA represents net (loss)/earnings before interest and finance costs net, gains or losses from the change in fair value of derivative financial instruments, foreign exchange gains or losses, income taxes, depreciation, depreciation of dry-docking costs, amortization of fair value of time charter acquired, impairment and gains or losses on sale of vessels. Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to total comprehensive income/(loss) or cash generated from operations, as determined by IFRS, and our calculation of Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under IFRS.

Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA is included herein because it is a basis upon which we assess our financial performance and because we believe that it presents useful information to investors regarding a company’s ability to service and/or incur indebtedness and it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry.

Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under IFRS. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA does not reflect the interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;
  • Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA does not reflect changes in or cash requirements for our working capital needs; and
  • Other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA should not be considered a measure of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business.

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA to total comprehensive (loss) and net cash (used in)/ generated from operating activities for the periods presented:

Notes:

(1) Ownership days are the aggregate number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet has been owned by us.
(2) Available days are the number of ownership days less the aggregate number of days that our vessels are off-hire due to scheduled repairs or repairs under guarantee, vessel upgrades or special surveys.
(3) Operating days are the number of available days less the aggregate number of days that the vessels are off-hire due to any reason, including unforeseen circumstances but excluding days during which vessels are seeking employment.
(4) We calculate fleet utilization by dividing the number of operating days during a period by the number of available days during the period.
(5) Average number of vessels is measured by the sum of the number of days each vessel was part of our fleet during a relevant period divided by the number of calendar days in such period.
(6) TCE rates are our voyage revenues less net revenues from our bareboat charters less voyage expenses during a period divided by the number of our available days during the period excluding bareboat charter days, which is consistent with industry standards. TCE is a measure not in accordance with GAAP.
(7) We calculate daily vessel operating expenses by dividing vessel operating expenses by ownership days for the relevant time period excluding bareboat charter days.
