1Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net loss and Adjusted loss per share are not recognized measurements under U.S. GAAP (GAAP) and should not be used in isolation or as a substitute for Euroseas financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. Refer to a subsequent section of the Press Release for the definitions and reconciliation of these measurements to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.


Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of Euroseas commented:
“During the fourth quarter of 2020 and early 2021, containership time charter rates have increased significantly despite further concerns about the coronavirus pandemic, exceeding median levels and reaching twelve-year highs for certain sizes. The quarter also registered an increase of more than 40% in secondhand sale prices for the 1,700 to 4,500 teu containership size range, for both younger and older fleets.

“Our fleet benefitted from the market increase as four of our vessels renewed their charters at rates more than double their previous levels and are set to make significant contributions to our earnings. We remain very optimistic for the medium term prospects of the market due to the relatively low orderbook, the expected rebound of the containerized trade, especially, if the COVID-19 pandemic comes under control and the expanding regulatory and environmental requirements that effectively increase the need for more vessel capacity. If, as result of the above trends, the charter rates remain near their current levels for the next four to five months, we should be able to renew the charters of almost all of our vessels at similarly higher rates than they currently earn further contributing to our profitability.

“Given the increasing interest in the sector from both public and private capital markets, our overall strategy remains focused on exploiting our position as the only publicly-listed feeder and small containership-focused company to continue growing pursuing accretive opportunities via mergers or combinations with privately owned vessels or fleets.”

Tasos Aslidis, Chief Financial Officer of Euroseas commented: “The operating results of the fourth quarter of 2020 reflect the increased levels of charter rates in the containership markets as compared to the same period of 2019, with net income amounting to $0.6 million for the fourth quarter in 2020 compared to a net loss of $0.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. On average, during the fourth quarter of 2020, our vessels earned approximately 15.5% higher time charter equivalent rates compared to the fourth quarter of 2019.”

“Total daily vessel operating expenses, including management fees, general and administrative expenses, but excluding drydocking costs, were higher by 15.9% during the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to the same quarter of last year. The increased operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2020 are mainly due to increased crewing costs for our vessels compared to the same period of 2019, resulting from difficulties in crew rotation due to COVID-19 related restrictions. Adjusted EBITDA during the fourth quarter of 2020 was $2.1 million compared to the $1.2 million achieved in fourth quarter of last year, and it reached $11.8 million versus $5.3 million for the respective twelve-month periods of 2020 and 2019.”

“As of December 31, 2020, our outstanding bank debt (excluding the unamortized loan fees) was $67.3 million, versus restricted and unrestricted cash of approximately $6.3 million.”

Fourth Quarter 2020 Results:
For the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company reported total net revenues of $12.0 million representing a 9.6% decrease over total net revenues of $13.3 million during the fourth quarter of 2019, which was the result of the decreased average number of vessels operating in the fourth quarter of 2020, partly offset by the higher time charter rates our vessels earned in the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to the corresponding period of 2019. The Company reported net income for the period of $0.6 million and net income attributable to common shareholders of $0.4 million, as compared to a net loss of $0.8 million and a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $0.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. Drydocking expenses amounted to $0.1 million during the fourth quarter of 2020 comprising the cost of one vessel completing her intermediate survey in-water. For the same period of 2019 drydocking expenses amounted to $1.5 million comprising the cost of one vessel completing her special survey with drydock and two vessels completing their intermediate surveys in-water. Depreciation expense for the fourth quarter of 2020 increased to $1.6 million from $1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Although the average number of vessels operating in the fourth quarter of 2020 decreased to 14.43 as compared to 16.84 for the same period of 2019, the new vessels acquired at the end of 2019, have a higher average daily depreciation charge as a result of their higher initial values (acquisition price) compared to the remaining vessels.

On average, 14.43 vessels were owned and operated during the fourth quarter of 2020 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $10,497 per day compared to 16.84 vessels in the same period of 2019 earning on average $9,086 per day. 

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $2.1 million compared to $1.2 million for the corresponding period in 2019. 

Basic and diluted earnings per share attributable to common shareholders for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $0.07 calculated on 6,149,300 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding, compared to a basic and diluted loss per share of $0.18 for the fourth quarter of 2019, calculated on 5,036,122 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding. 

Excluding the effect on the income attributable to common shareholders for the quarter of the unrealized gain on derivatives, the amortization of below market time charters acquired and the gain on sale of a vessel, the adjusted loss attributable to common shareholders for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 would have been $0.16 per share basic and diluted compared to an adjusted loss of $0.32 per share basic and diluted for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. Usually, security analysts do not include the above items in their published estimates of earnings per share.

Full Year 2020 Results:
For the full year of 2020, the Company reported total net revenues of $53.3 million representing a 33.2% increase over total net revenues of $40.0 million during the twelve months of 2019. The Company reported net income for the year of $4.0 million and net income attributable to common shareholders of $3.3 million, as compared to a net loss of $1.7 million and a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $3.5 million for the twelve months of 2019. The results for the twelve months of 2020 include $1.7 million of amortization of below market charters acquired, a $0.6 million unrealized loss on derivatives, a $2.5 million net gain on sale of vessels and a $0.1 million loss on write-down of vessel held for sale. The results for the twelve months of 2019 include a $0.9 million of amortization of below market charters acquired and $0.04 million of unrealized gain on derivatives. Our results have also benefitted from other income of $2.7 million related to insurance proceeds from an “unrepaired damage” claim agreed with the H&M underwriters for our vessel EM Oinousses, which was eventually sold in July 2020. Depreciation expense for the twelve months of 2020 was $6.6 million compared to $4.2 million during the same period of 2019, due to the increased number of vessels in the Company’s fleet.

Vessel operating expenses for the twelve months of 2020 amounted to $32.2 million as compared to $24.0 million for the same period of 2019. The increased amount is due to the higher number of vessels owned and operated in the twelve months of 2020 compared to the same period of 2019. Additionally, some of our vessels incurred increased crewing costs in 2020 compared to 2019, resulting from difficulties in crew rotation due to COVID-19 related restrictions. Related party management fees for the twelve months of 2020 were $5.3 million compared to $3.7 million for the same period of 2019. The increase is due to the higher average number of vessels operated by the Company in the twelve months of 2020 as compared to the same period of 2019 as well as due to termination fees paid for the vessels sold in accordance with the management agreement.

Drydocking expenses amounted to $0.5 million for the twelve months of 2020 (one vessel passed her intermediate survey in-water and three vessels passed their special survey in-water), compared to $2.7 million for the same period of 2019 (one of our vessels completed her special survey with drydock, another four vessels completed their intermediate surveys in-water and a vessel completed her special survey with drydock that started in 2018).

On average, 17.23 vessels were owned and operated during the twelve months of 2020 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $9,445 per day compared to 13.10 vessels in the same period of 2019 earning on average $8,782 per day. 

Interest and other financing costs for the twelve months of 2020 amounted to $4.1 million compared to $3.4 million for the same period of 2019. This increase is due to the increased amount of debt in the current period compared to the same period of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the twelve months of 2020 was $11.8 million compared to $5.3 million during the twelve months of 2019. 

Basic and diluted earnings per share attributable to common shareholders for the twelve months of 2020 was $0.58, calculated on 5,753,917 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding compared to basic and diluted loss per share of $1.21 for the twelve months of 2019, calculated on 2,861,928 basic and diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding. 

Excluding the effect on the income attributable to common shareholders for the twelve months of 2020 of the unrealized loss on derivatives, the amortization of the below market time charters acquired, the net gain on sale of vessels and the loss on write down of vessel held for sale, the adjusted loss attributable to common shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2020 would have been $0.02 per share compared to adjusted loss of $1.52 per share basic and diluted for 2019, which was also adjusted by excluding unrealized gain on derivatives and amortization of the below market time charters acquired. As previously mentioned, usually, security analysts do not include the above items in their published estimates of earnings per share.

(**)The CONTEX (Container Ship Time Charter Assessment Index) has been published by the Hamburg and Bremen Shipbrokers’ Association (VHBS) since October 2007. The CONTEX is a company-independent index of time charter rates for container ships. It is based on assessments of the current day charter rates of six selected container ship types, which are representative of their size categories: Type 1,100 TEU and Type 1,700 TEU with a charter period of one year, and the Types 2,500, 2,700, 3,500 and 4,250 TEU, all with a charter period of two years.

(1) Average number of vessels is the number of vessels that constituted the Company’s fleet for the relevant period, as measured by the sum of the number of calendar days each vessel was a part of the Company’s fleet during the period divided by the number of calendar days in that period.

(2) Calendar days. We define calendar days as the total number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet was in our possession including off-hire days associated with major repairs, drydockings or special or intermediate surveys or days of vessels in lay-up. Calendar days are an indicator of the size of our fleet over a period and affect both the amount of revenues and the amount of expenses that we record during that period.

(3) The scheduled off-hire days including vessels laid-up, vessels committed for sale or vessels that suffered unrepaired damages, are days associated with scheduled repairs, drydockings or special or intermediate surveys or days of vessels in lay-up, or with vessels that were committed for sale or suffered unrepaired damages

(4) Available days. We define available days as the Calendar days in a period net of scheduled off-hire days as defined above. We use available days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels were available to generate revenues.

(5) Commercial off-hire days. We define commercial off-hire days as days a vessel is idle without employment. 

(6) Operational off-hire days. We define operational off-hire days as days associated with unscheduled repairs or other off-hire time related to the operation of the vessels.

(7) Voyage days. We define voyage days as the total number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet was in our possession net of commercial and operational off-hire days. We use voyage days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels actually generate revenues or are sailing for repositioning purposes.

(8) Fleet utilization. We calculate fleet utilization by dividing the number of our voyage days during a period by the number of our available days during that period. We use fleet utilization to measure a company’s efficiency in finding suitable employment for its vessels and minimizing the amount of days that its vessels are off-hire for reasons such as unscheduled repairs or days waiting to find employment.

(9) Fleet utilization, commercial. We calculate commercial fleet utilization by dividing our available days net of commercial off-hire days during a period by our available days during that period.

(10) Fleet utilization, operational. We calculate operational fleet utilization by dividing our available days net of operational off-hire days during a period by our available days during that period.

(11) Time charter equivalent rate, or TCE rate, is a measure of the average daily revenue performance of our vessels. Our method of calculating TCE is determined by dividing time charter revenue and voyage charter revenue net of voyage expenses by voyage days for the relevant time period. Voyage expenses primarily consist of port, canal and fuel costs that are unique to a particular voyage, which would otherwise be paid by the charterer under a time charter contract, or are related to repositioning the vessel for the next charter. TCE is a standard shipping industry performance measure used primarily to compare period-to-period changes in a shipping company's performance despite changes in the mix of charter types (i.e., spot voyage charters, time charters and bareboat charters) under which the vessels may be employed between the periods. Our definition of TCE may not be comparable to that used by other companies in the shipping industry.

(12) Daily vessel operating expenses, which includes crew costs, provisions, deck and engine stores, lubricating oil, insurance, maintenance and repairs and management fees are calculated by dividing vessel operating expenses and related party management fees by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period. Drydocking expenses are reported separately.

(13) Daily general and administrative expense is calculated by dividing general and administrative expenses by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period.

(14) Total vessel operating expenses, or TVOE, is a measure of our total expenses associated with operating our vessels. TVOE is the sum of vessel operating expenses, management fees and general and administrative expenses; drydocking expenses are not included. Daily TVOE is calculated by dividing TVOE by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period.

(15) Drydocking expenses include expenses during drydockings that would have been capitalized and amortized under the deferral method, divided by the fleet calendar days for the relevant period. Drydocking expenses could vary substantially from period to period depending on how many vessels underwent drydocking during the period. The Company expenses drydocking expenses as incurred.

Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation:
Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted EBITDA to represent net income / (loss) before interest, income taxes, depreciation, loss on interest rate swap derivatives, net gain on sale of vessels, amortization of below market time charters acquired and loss on write down of vessel held for sale. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income / (loss), as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is included herein because it is a basis upon which the Company assesses its financial performance and we believe that this non- GAAP financial measure assists our management and investors by increasing the comparability of our performance from period to period by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods of, financial costs, amortization of below market time charters acquired, loss on interest rate swaps, net gain on sale of vessels, loss on write down of vessel held for sale and depreciation. The Company's definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be the same as that used by other companies in the shipping or other industries.

Adjusted net (loss) / income and Adjusted loss per share Reconciliation:
Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted net (loss) / income to represent net (loss) / income before unrealized loss / (gain) on derivatives, net gain on sale of vessels, loss on write down of vessel held for sale and amortization of below market time charters acquired. Adjusted net (loss)/income and Adjusted loss per share is included herein because we believe it assists our management and investors by increasing the comparability of the Company's fundamental performance from period to period by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods of unrealized loss / (gain) on derivatives, net gain on sale of vessels, loss on write down of vessel held for sale and amortization of below market time charters acquired, which items may significantly affect results of operations between periods 

Adjusted net (loss) / income and Adjusted loss per share do not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or loss per share, as determined by GAAP. The Company's definition of Adjusted net (loss) / income and Adjusted loss per share may not be the same as that used by other companies in the shipping or other industries.
