Overseas Shipholding Group Reports Second Quarter 2019 Results

TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. (NYSE: OSG) (the 'Company' or 'OSG') a provider of energy transportation services for crude oil and petroleum products in the U.S. Flag markets, today reported results for the second quarter 2019.

Highlights

  • Net loss for the second quarter 2019 was $1.7 million, or ($0.02) per diluted share, compared with net income of $3.1 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2018. Net income for the second quarter 2019 before accounting reserves for Philadelphia Energy Solutions was $1.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share.
  • Shipping revenues for the second quarter 2019 were $88.5 million, down 7.2% compared with the same period in 2018. Time charter equivalent (TCE) revenues(A), a non-GAAP measure, for the second quarter 2019 were $82.1 million, down 4.5% compared with the second quarter 2018. Second quarter 2019 TCE revenues remained consistent with first quarter 2019 TCE revenues.
  • Second quarter 2019 Adjusted EBITDA(B), a non-GAAP measure, was $18.2 million, down 26.8% from $24.9 million in the second quarter 2018. Adjusted EBITDA was reduced by $4.3 million due to reserves for possible losses associated with Philadelphia Energy Solutions' bankruptcy.
  • Total cash(C) was $53.6 million as of June 30, 2019.

Mr. Sam Norton, President and CEO, stated, 'We have made significant progress towards securing more stable and visible cash flows in our conventional tanker and ATB trades. Supported by strong fundamentals and high utilization, our conventional tanker and ATB fleets both made solid contributions to our second quarter performance. This performance, together with a continually improving supply-demand balance, underpin our optimism about the emerging earnings recovery for these assets.'

Mr. Norton added, 'In response to the Chapter 11 filing of Philadelphia Energy Solutions, OSG's largest lightering customer, we have re-deployed one of our two lightering vessels into the strengthening conventional tanker market while we await clarity on the longer-term intentions for the PES refinery complex. Notwithstanding this adjustment, we believe that OSG's niche businesses collectively remain well positioned to continue benefitting from the long-term stability that these unique assets have historically provided.'

Second Quarter 2019 Results

Shipping revenues were $88.5 million for the quarter, down 7.2% compared with the second quarter of 2018. TCE revenues for the second quarter of 2019 were $82.1 million, a decrease of $3.9 million, or 4.5%, compared with the second quarter of 2018. This decrease primarily resulted from (a) an increase in drydock days, (b) one less Government of Israel voyage during the second quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018, (c) one less vessel in operation during the second quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018, and (d) the sale of one vessel towards the end of the second quarter of 2019 compared to no vessel sales during the same period in 2018.

A, B, C
Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures are included in the financial tables attached to this press release starting on Page 7.

Following a significant refinery explosion in June 2019, our customer, Philadelphia Energy Solutions ('PES'), filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition on July 21, 2019. At the time of filing, OSG had outstanding receivables from PES of approximately $4.3 million. The ultimate recovery of these receivables is currently unknown. The Company established, at June 30, 2019, a loss provision equal to $4.3 million. OSG is working diligently to maximize the Company's recovery.

Operating income for the second quarter of 2019 was $3.8 million, compared to operating income of $10.5 million in the second quarter of 2018.

Net loss for the second quarter 2019 was $1.7 million, or ($0.02) per diluted share, compared with net income of $3.1 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2018. Net income for the second quarter 2019 before accounting reserves for Philadelphia Energy Solutions was $1.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share.

Adjusted EBITDA was $18.2 million for the second quarter, a decrease of $6.7 million compared with the second quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA was reduced by $4.3 million due to reserves for possible losses associated with Philadelphia Energy Solutions' bankruptcy.

Reconciliation to Non-GAAP Financial Information

The Company believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, the following non-GAAP measures may provide certain investors with additional information that will better enable them to evaluate the Company's performance. Accordingly, these non-GAAP measures are intended to provide supplemental information, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared with GAAP.

(A) Time Charter Equivalent (TCE) Revenues

Consistent with general practice in the shipping industry, the Company uses TCE revenues, which represents shipping revenues less voyage expenses, as a measure to compare revenue generated from a voyage charter to revenue generated from a time charter. Time charter equivalent revenues, a non-GAAP measure, provides additional meaningful information in conjunction with shipping revenues, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, because it assists Company management in making decisions regarding the deployment and use of its vessels and in evaluating their financial performance. Reconciliation of TCE revenues of the segments to shipping revenues as reported in the consolidated statements of operations follow:

Vessel Operating Contribution

Vessel operating contribution, a non-GAAP measure, is TCE revenues minus vessel expenses and charter hire expenses.

Our 'niche market activities,' which includes Delaware Bay lightering, MSP vessels and shuttle tankers, continue to provide a stable operating platform underlying our total US Flag operations. These vessels' operations are insulated from the forces affecting the broader Jones Act market.

The following table sets forth the contribution of our vessels:

(B) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA represents net (loss)/income from continuing operations before interest expense, income taxes and depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA consists of EBITDA adjusted to exclude amortization classified in charter hire expenses, interest expense classified in charter hire expenses, gain/(loss) on disposal of vessels and other property, including impairments, loss on repurchases and extinguishment of debt, non-cash stock based compensation expense and the impact of other items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent, and should not be a substitute for, net (loss)/income or cash flows from operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. Some of the limitations are: (i) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; (ii) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; and (iii) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt. While EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used as a measure of operating results and performance, neither of them is necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to differences in methods of calculation. The following table reconciles net income/(loss) from continuing operations as reflected in the consolidated statements of operations, to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. Prior periods have been adjusted to conform to current year presentation.
