Published

NEWPORT, R.I., Aug. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. ("Pangaea" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: PANL), a global provider of comprehensive maritime logistics solutions, announced today its results for the three months ended June 30, 2019.

2nd Quarter Highlights    

  • Net income attributable to Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. of $4.0 million as compared to $5.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018.
  • Earnings per share were $0.09 as compared to $0.13 for the three months ended June 30, 2018.
  • Pangaea's TCE rates were $12,933 for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and $13,728 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 while the market average for the second quarter of 2018 was approximately $8,665, giving the Company an overall average premium over market rates of approximately $4,268 or 49%.
  • At the end of the quarter, Pangaea had $43.7 million in cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents.
  • Initiated and paid quarterly cash dividend of $0.035 per common share

Ed Coll, Chief Executive Officer of Pangaea Logistics Solutions, commented:

"Our second quarter results continued to outperform a turbulent market thanks to our active differentiated business model.  We reported positive net income once again, declared and payed our first dividend, and continued to expand our platform by investing in our niche trades through the ordering of two new ice class post panamax vessels and the purchase of three second-hand vessels. Among those purchased ships was Nantong K, to be renamed Bulk Friendship, which will be delivered to us in September as part of our planned fleet renewal.  Our markets have demonstrated extraordinary resiliency since hitting lows early this year, but we remain cautious of the risks of uncertain times in international trading and commerce. Our committed cargo relationships help mitigate this type of risk, as does our flexible charter-in strategy that keeps our chartered-in tonnage in sync with our cargo commitments."

Mr. Coll added, "Looking ahead, we move into our seasonally strong summer ice season in good shape, hoping to further extend our services to customers who appreciate our capabilities and performance. We will continue to carefully approach our markets to expand in areas where we can continue to achieve above market returns by providing exceptional service to meet the needs of our partners and clients."

Results for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018

Total revenue was $83.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, compared with $96.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The total number of shipping days performed decreased by 17 percent to 3,562, compared to 4,283 days during the second quarter of 2018.

The average TCE rate achieved was $12,933 per day for the three months ended June 30, 2019, slightly lower than the average of $13,728 per day for the same period in 2018. The achieved premium over the average market increased to $4,268 per day or 49% for the three months ended June 30, 2019, from $3,355 per day or 32% for the three months ended June 30, 2018.  The total number of shipping days decreased 17% to 3,562 in the three months ended June 30, 2019, compared to 4,283 for the same period in 2018, predominantly due to the decrease in time charter days. Net income held relatively steady at $4.0 million as compared to $5.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018.

Liquidity and Cash Flows

Cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents were $43.7 million as of June 30, 2019, compared with $56.1 million on December 31, 2018.

At June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Company had working capital of $28.5 million and $34.5 million, respectively. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, the Company's net cash provided by operating activities was $19.6 million, compared to $20.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

For the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, net cash used in investing activities was $33.5 million and $2.8 million, respectively. Net cash provided by financing activities was $1.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 while net cash used in financing activities was $4.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. These changes reflect the Company's investment in and purchase of a new vessel in 2019, including the m/v Bulk Spirit, which was financed under a finance lease arrangement and the m/v Bulk Independence which was financed under a commercial loan facility.

INFORMATION ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES. As used herein, "GAAP" refers to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. To supplement our consolidated financial statements prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, this earnings release discusses non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net revenue and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA. This is considered a non-GAAP financial measure as defined in Rule 101 of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's historical or future performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

We use non-GAAP financial measures for internal financial and operational decision making purposes and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons of the performance and results of operations of our core business. Our management believes that non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the performance of our core business by excluding charges that are not incurred in the normal course of business. Non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal planning and comparisons to our historical performance and liquidity. We believe certain non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors as they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making and are used by our institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the performance and operational results of our core business.

Net revenue. Net revenue represents total revenue less the total direct costs of transportation and services, which includes charter hire, voyage and vessel operating expenses. Net revenue is included because it is used by management and certain investors to measure performance by comparison to other logistic service providers. Net revenue is not an item recognized by the generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or U.S. GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, or any other indicator of a company's operating performance required by U.S. GAAP. Pangaea's definition of net revenue used here may not be comparable to an operating measure used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS. Adjusted EBITDA represents income or loss from operations before depreciation, amortization and, when applicable, loss on sale and leaseback of vessel, loss on impairment of vessels and certain non-recurring income and/or expense. Earnings per share represents net income divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Adjusted earnings per share represents net income attributable to Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. plus, when applicable, loss on sale and leaseback of vessel, loss on impairment of vessel and certain non-recurring income and/or expenses, divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock.

There are limitations related to the use of net revenue versus income from operations, adjusted EBITDA versus income from operations, and adjusted EPS versus EPS calculated in accordance with GAAP. In particular, Pangaea's definition of adjusted EBITDA used here are not comparable to EBITDA.

The table set forth above provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures presented during the period to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
