MAROUSSI, ATHENS, GREECE--(Marketwire - Aug 10, 2011) - Euroseas Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESEA), an owner and operator of drybulk and container carrier vessels and provider of seaborne transportation for drybulk and containerized cargoes, announced today its results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011.

Second Quarter 2011 Highlights:

  • Net income of $0.03 million or $0.00 earnings per share basic and diluted on total net revenues of $15.6 million. Excluding the effect of unrealized and realized loss on derivatives and unrealized loss on trading securities and amortization of the fair value of charters acquired, the net earnings per share for the period would have remained unchanged.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $5.0 million. Please refer to a subsequent section of the Press Release for a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income.

  • An average of 16.00 vessels were owned and operated during the second quarter of 2011 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $11,302 per day.

  • Declared a quarterly dividend of $0.07 per share for the second quarter of 2011 payable on or about September 9, 2011 to shareholders of record on September 2, 2011. This is the twenty-fourth consecutive quarterly dividend declared.

First Half 2011 Highlights:

  • Net loss of $0.6 million or $0.02 loss per share basic and diluted on total net revenues of $29.8 million. Excluding the effect of unrealized and realized loss on derivatives and unrealized loss on trading securities and amortization of the fair value of charters acquired, the net loss for the period would have been $1.3 million, or $0.04 loss per share basic and diluted

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $8.7 million. Please refer to a subsequent section of the Press Release for a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net loss.

  • An average of 16.00 vessels were owned and operated during the first half of 2011 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $11,198 per day.

  • Declared two quarterly dividends for a total of $0.14 per share during the first half of 2011.

Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of Euroseas commented: "During the first half of 2011, the containership market recovery continued and allowed us to renew the expiring charters of our containership fleet at significantly higher rates. The strengthening of the market compared to a year ago also allowed us to reactivate and profitably employ two of our containerships which were laid up during the same period of 2010. In parallel, our strategy to fully charter out our drybulk fleet for 2011 and about 70% for 2012 has insulated us from the weakness of the drybulk market.

"On the investment front, while we continue to pursue investments in the containership sector through our Euromar joint venture, which recently agreed to acquire its seventh vessel, we have been also reviewing opportunities in the drybulk sector, in which we expect the weakness in rates to translate into lower vessel prices.

"We remain optimistic about the prospects of Euroseas as we believe our conservative strategy has provided us with a strong balance sheet and has positioned us well to take advantage of opportunities as they might emerge. Our Board decided to re-affirm our quarterly dividend to $0.07 per share which represents an annual yield of about 6.9% on the basis of our stock price on August 2, 2011."

Tasos Aslidis, Chief Financial Officer of Euroseas commented: "The results of the second quarter of 2011 reflect the strengthening of the containership market compared to the same quarter of 2010, the higher number of our vessels profitably employed but also higher interest rate swap related derivative losses due to the drop of interest rates.

"Total daily vessel operating expenses, including management fees, general and administrative expenses but excluding drydocking costs, averaged $6,066 per vessel per day during the second quarter of 2011 as compared to $5,510 per vessel per day for the same quarter of last year for the vessels not in lay-up, and $6,002 per vessel per day for the first half of 2011 as compared to $5,677 per vessel per day for the same period of 2010 again for the vessels not in lay-up; the increase is partly attributed to the higher cost of lubricants and the higher dollar / euro exchange rate. As always, we want to emphasize that cost control remains a key component of our strategy.

"As of June 30, 2011, our outstanding debt was $80.8 million versus restricted and unrestricted cash of about $35.4 million. As of the same date, our scheduled debt repayments over the next 12 months amounted to about $13.7 million, a number low enough to provide us with significant operational cash flow comfort. All our debt covenants were satisfied as of June 30, 2011."

Second Quarter 2011 Results:
For the second quarter of 2011, the Company reported total net revenues of $15.6 million representing a 14.0% increase over total net revenues of $13.7 million during the second quarter of 2010. The Company reported net income for the period of $0.03 million as compared to income of $0.5 million for the second quarter of 2010. The results for the second quarter of 2011 include a $0.6 million net unrealized loss on derivatives and trading securities and a $0.2 million net realized loss on derivatives as compared to $3.3 million net unrealized gain on derivatives and trading securities and $3.7 million realized loss on derivatives for the same period of 2010.

Depreciation expenses for the second quarter of 2011 were $4.6 million compared to $4.4 million during the same period of 2010. On average, 16.00 vessels were owned and operated during the second quarter of 2011 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $11,302 per day compared to 15.11 vessels in the same period of 2010 earning on average $11,903 per day.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2011 was $5.0 million, unchanged compared to $5.0 million achieved during the second quarter of 2010. Please see below for Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation to net income / loss and cash flow provided by operating activities.

Basic and diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2011 was $0.00, calculated on 31,002,711 basic and 31,116,172 diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding, compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.02 for the second quarter of 2010, calculated on 30,849,711 basic and 30,940,288 diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding, respectively.

Excluding the effect on the earnings for the quarter of the unrealized loss on derivatives and the realized loss on derivatives, unrealized loss on trading securities and amortization of the fair value of time charter contracts acquired, the gain per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 would have been $0.00 per share basic and diluted compared to earnings of $0.02 per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2010. Usually, security analysts do not include the above items in their published estimates of earnings per share.

First Half 2011 Results:
For the first half of 2011, the Company reported total net revenues of $29.8 million representing an 8.6% increase over total net revenues of $27.5 million during the first half of 2010. The Company reported a net loss for the period of $0.6 million as compared to net loss of $2.5 million for the first half of 2010. The results for the first half of 2011 include a $0.1 million net unrealized loss on derivatives and trading securities and a $0.4 million net realized loss on derivatives as compared to a $4.0 million net unrealized gain on derivatives and trading securities and $8.4 million realized loss on derivatives for the same period of 2010.

Depreciation expenses for the first half of 2011 were $9.2 million compared to $8.8 million during the same period of 2010. On average, 16.00 vessels were owned and operated during the first half of 2011 earning an average time charter equivalent rate of $11,198 per day compared to 15.06 vessels in the same period of 2010 earning on average $12,152 per day.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first half of 2011 was $8.7 million, a 12.3% decrease from $10.0 million achieved during the first half of 2010. Please see below for Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation to net income/loss and cash flow provided by operating activities.

Basic and diluted loss per share for the first half of 2011 was $0.02, calculated on 31,002,711 weighted average number of shares outstanding, compared to basic and diluted loss per share of $0.08 basic and diluted per share for the first half of 2010, calculated on 30,849,711 weighted average number of shares outstanding basic and diluted.

Excluding the effect on the losses for the first half of 2011 of the unrealized loss on derivatives, realized loss on derivatives, unrealized loss on trading securities and amortization of the fair value of time charter contracts acquired, the loss per share for the six-month period ended June 30, 2011 would have been $0.04 per share basic and diluted compared to earnings of $0.03 per share basic and diluted for the same period in 2010. Usually, security analysts do not include the above items in their published estimates of earnings per share.

(1) Average number of vessels is the number of vessels that constituted our fleet for the relevant period, as measured by the sum of the number of calendar days each vessel was a part of our 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 are days associated with scheduled repairs, drydockings or special or intermediate surveys or days of vessels in lay-up. The shipping industry uses available days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels were available to generate revenues.

(4) Available days. We define available days as the total number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet was in our possession net of scheduled off-hire days including days of vessels laid-up.

(5) Commercial off-hire days. We define commercial off-hire days as days waiting to find 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. The shipping industry uses voyage days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels actually generate revenues.

(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. The shipping industry uses 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 net of operational off-hire days during a period by our available days during that period.

(11) Time charter equivalent, or TCE, is a measure of the average daily revenue performance of a vessel on a per voyage basis. Our method of calculating TCE is consistent with industry standards and is determined by dividing revenue generated from voyage charters 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, as well as commissions. 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.

(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 by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period. Drydocking expenses are reported separately. During the three- and six-month periods in 2010, two of the vessels were laid-up and incurred expenses on average of $1,221 and $1,061 per day each, respectively; excluding the laid-up vessels from the fleet average the vessel operating expenses were $4,839 and $4,930 per vessel per day, respectively.

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

(15) Drydocking expenses, which 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.

EBITDA Reconciliation:
Euroseas Ltd. considers Adjusted EBITDA to represent net earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, gain / loss in derivatives and amortization of deferred revenues from above or below market time charters acquired. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or cash flow from operations, as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is included herein because it is a basis upon which we assess our financial performance and liquidity position and because we believe that it presents useful information to investors regarding a company's ability to service and/or incur indebtedness. The Company's definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be the same as that used by other companies in the shipping or other industries.
