Eagle Bulk into the red

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.

- Achieved a TCE (2) of $9,731 for the quarter, a decrease of 15% year-on-year.

Realized a net loss of $6.0 million or $0.08 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net income of $3.5 million or $0.05 per basic and diluted share in the second quarter 2018.

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.

Subsequent Events

Issued 5-year Senior Unsecured Convertible Bonds totaling $114.1 million in gross proceeds, including the greenshoe of $14.1 million

- Coupon of 5% and conversion premium of +25% to July 24th 2019 closing price or $5.61 per share

Entered into two agreements to acquire a total of six high-specification SDARI-64 Ultramax vessels (the "Acquisition Vessels") for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $122.0 million, subject to final documentation and customary closing conditions

- Average age of approximately 3.3 years
