Eagle Bulk into the red
(Posted on 31/07/19)
Eagle Bulk Shipping Inc., one of the world’s largest owner-operators within the Supramax / Ultramax segment, has reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019.
Gary Vogel, Eagle Bulk's CEO, commented, "Our results for the second quarter are reflective of the challenging freight environment in the first half of the year. Despite the headwinds, we continued to deliver strong TCE outperformance (relative to the adjusted benchmark Baltic Supramax Index) of nearly $2,000 in the second quarter, marking our tenth consecutive quarter of outperformance.
"Our recently announced bond issuance and pending acquisition of six modern Ultramax vessels, four of which will be delivered to us with scrubbers, is an important step for Eagle, as we continue to renew and grow our fleet with larger, more efficient vessels. Coupled with our existing scrubber initiative, we believe these acquisitions increase our leverage to the opportunities IMO 2020 will present."
Highlights for the Quarter:
Generated net revenues of $69.4 million, representing a decrease of $5.5 million or 7% compared to the same period in 2018.
- TCE Revenue (1) for the quarter equated to $38.9 million, a decrease of 18% year-on-year.

Adjusted EBITDA(3) of $10.4 million, representing a decrease of $10.8 million or 51% compared to the same period in 2018.
Looking ahead into the third quarter of 2019, the Company has attained a TCE of $10,285 with approximately 57% of the available days fixed for the period thus far.
