Management Discussion and Analysis of the Results of Operations

Third quarter of the year 2016 compared to the third quarter of the year 2015

Total comprehensive loss for the third quarter of the year 2016 amounted to $2.8 million or $1.07 basic loss per share based on 2,606,000 weighted average number of shares, compared to total comprehensive loss of $2.5 million for the same period last year or $0.96 basic loss per share based on 2,566,064 weighted average number of shares. 

The following table corresponds to the breakdown of the factors that led to the increase of total comprehensive loss during the third quarter of 2016 compared to the corresponding quarter in 2015 (expressed in $000's):

 
Third Quarter of 2016 vs Third Quarter of 2015

Voyage revenues
During the three-month period ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, our revenue reached $2.5 million and $3.2 million respectively. The 22% decrease in voyage revenues was mainly attributed to the decrease in the average time charter rates achieved by our vessels during the third quarter of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015. Time Charter Equivalent rate (TCE) for the third quarter of 2016 amounted to $5,031 per vessel per day against $5,664 per vessel per day during the same period in 2015 corresponding to a decrease of 11%. There was also a decrease of the average number of vessels of the fleet from 6.1, during the third quarter of 2015, to 5.0 for the respective period in 2016 due to the sale of m/v Tiara Globe in July 2015 and the subsidiary ship-owning company of m/v Energy Globe in March 2016.

Vessel operating expenses
Vessel operating expenses, which include crew costs, provisions, deck and engine stores, lubricating oils, insurance, maintenance, and repairs, decreased by $0.5 million or 19% to $2.1 million during the three month period ended September 30, 2016 compared to $2.6 million during the same period in 2015. The breakdown of our operating expenses for the quarters ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 was as follows:

         
    2016   2015
Crew expenses   58%   53%
Repairs and spares   19%   15%
Insurance   8%   17%
Stores   7%   9%
Lubricants   6%   3%
Other   2%   3%
         

Average daily operating expenses during the three-month periods ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 were $4,483 per vessel per day and $4,704 per vessel per day respectively, corresponding to a decrease of 5%. There was also a decrease of the average number of vessels of the fleet from 6.1, during the third quarter of 2015, to 5.0 for the respective period in 2016 due to the sale of m/v Tiara Globe in July 2015 and the subsidiary ship-owning company of m/v Energy Globe in March 2016.

Total administrative expenses
Total administrative expenses increased by $0.3 million or 50% to $0.9 million during the three month period ended September 30, 2016 compared to $0.6 million during the same period in 2015. This is mainly attributed to the compensation given to the former CEO of the Company.

Nine month period ended September 30, 2016 compared to the nine month period ended September 30, 2015

Total comprehensive loss for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 amounted to $9.7 million or $3.74 basic loss per share based on 2,595,841 weighted average number of shares, compared to total comprehensive loss of $16.1 million for the same period last year or $6.36 basic loss per share based on 2,566,064 weighted average number of shares. 

The following table corresponds to the breakdown of the factors that led to the total comprehensive loss for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 compared to the total comprehensive loss ended September 30, 2015 (expressed in $000's):

Voyage revenues
During the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, our voyage revenue reached $6.3 million and $10.1 million respectively. The 38% decrease in voyage revenue was mainly attributed to the decrease in the average time charter rates achieved by our vessels during the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 compared to the same period in 2015. Time Charter Equivalent rate (TCE) for the nine month period in 2016 amounted to $3,711 per vessel per day against $4,553 per vessel per day during the same period in 2015 corresponding to a decrease of 18%. There was also a decrease of the average number of vessels of the fleet from 6.7, during the nine months of 2015, to 5.3 for the respective period in 2016 due to the sale of m/v Tiara Globe in July 2015 and the subsidiary ship-owning company of m/v Energy Globe in March 2016.

Voyage expenses
Voyage expenses reached $0.9 million during the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 compared to $1.7 million during the same period last year. Voyage expenses include commissions on revenue, port and other voyage expenses and bunker expenses. Bunker expenses mainly refer to the cost of bunkers consumed during periods that our vessels are travelling seeking employment. Voyage expenses for the nine month period in 2016 and 2015 are analyzed as follows:

         
In $000's   2016   2015
Commissions   332   533
Bunkers expenses   436   1,071
Other voyage expenses   167   95
Total   935   1,699
         

Vessel operating expenses
Vessel operating expenses, which include crew costs, provisions, deck and engine stores, lubricating oils, insurance, maintenance, and repairs, reached $6.3 million during the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 compared to $7.6 million during the same period in 2015. The breakdown of our operating expenses for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 was as follows:

         
    2016   2015
Crew expenses   57%   59%
Repairs and spares   17%   14%
Insurance   10%   10%
Stores   7%   9%
Lubricants   5%   5%
Other   4%   3%
         

Average daily operating expenses during the nine month periods ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 were $4,384 per vessel per day and $4,194 per vessel per day respectively, corresponding to an increase of 5%. However, the average number of vessels of the fleet decreased to 5.3, during the nine months of 2016, from 6.7 for the respective period in 2016 and the total expense decreased.

Depreciation
Depreciation charge during the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 decreased by $0.8 million and reached $3.8 million compared to $4.6 million recognized during the same period in 2015. The decrease is attributed to the decrease of the average number of vessels of the fleet from 6.7, during the nine months of 2015, to 5.3 for the respective period in 2016 due to the sale of m/v Tiara Globe in July 2015 and the subsidiary ship-owning company of m/v Energy Globe in March 2016.

Impairment loss
On May 11, 2015 we entered into a memorandum of agreement for the sale of vessel m/v Tiara Globe for a sale price of $5.5 million. On that date, the vessel was classified as held for sale, stopped being depreciated and subsequently measured at its fair value less cost to sell. As a result, we recognized an impairment charge of $7.7 million corresponding to the difference of the vessel's carrying value at that time and its fair value less cost to sale. 

Loss from sale of subsidiary
In March 2016, the Company entered into an agreement with Commerzbank to sell the shares of Kelty Marine Ltd., to an unaffiliated third party and apply the total net proceeds from the sale towards the respective loan facility. Based on certain financial conditions agreed beforehand with the Bank this resulted in the remaining principal amount of the loan to be written off. The financial effect from the sale of Kelty Marine Ltd. resulted to a loss of $0.15 million. Globus Shipmanagement Corp., the Company's ship management subsidiary continued to act as Kelty Marine Ltd.'s ship manager at $900 per day until June 27, 2016 when it ceased being its manager.

Interest expense and finance costs
Interest expense and finance costs reached $2.1 million during both the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 and 2015. The weighted average interest rate on our debt outstanding during the nine month period ended September 30, 2015 reached 3.68% compared to 2.99% during the same period last year. Our weighted average debt outstanding during the nine month period in 2016 was $68.8 million compared to $81.1 million during the same period last year. Interest expense and finance costs for the nine month period in 2016 and 2015 are analyzed as follows:

         
In $000's   2016   2015
Interest payable on long-term borrowings   1,925   1,836
Bank charges   25   25
Amortization of debt discount   105   115
Other finance expenses   30   80
Total   2,085   2,056
         

Liquidity and capital resources
As of September 30, 2016 and 2015, our cash and bank balances and bank deposits were $0.3 million and $2.9 million respectively.

Net cash used in operating activities for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 was $2.3 million compared to net cash generated from operating activities of $0.1 million during the respective period in 2015. The $2.4 million decrease in our cash from operations was mainly attributed to $1.9 million decrease in our adjusted LBITDA from $1.0 million during the nine month period in 2015 to adjusted LBITDA of $2.9 million during the nine month period under consideration, $0.1 million negative working capital movement less $0.4 million decrease in payments for dry docking costs during 2016 when compared with the same period last year.

AGM Results

On September 8, 2016 the Company announced results of its annual meeting of shareholders, mainly the re-election of one Class III director, the appointment of Company's External Auditors and the amendment to the Company's Articles of Incorporation in order to effect a reverse stock split of the Company's issued and outstanding shares of common stock by a ratio of up to (and including) 1-for-10 common shares, all three proposals were approved and adopted at the meeting.

Appointment of a New Non Executive Director

The Company's Non Executive Director Mr. Amir Eilon -- whose term expired at the AGM held on September 8, 2016 -- decided not to run for another term, due to other business matters that would have occupied his time that he would have otherwise used to focus on the Company. Mr. Eilon had been with the Company since its inception and we would like to thank him for his invaluable contribution all through his tenure with us. Subsequent to the above the Company announced that it had appointed to the Board of Directors Mr. Dimitrios Stratikopoulos an independent Class I non-executive director.

(1) Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA represents net (loss)/earnings before interest and finance costs net, gains or losses from the change in fair value of derivative financial instruments, foreign exchange gains or losses, income taxes, depreciation, depreciation of dry-docking costs, amortization of fair value of time charter acquired, impairment and gains or losses on sale of vessels. Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to total comprehensive income/(loss) or cash generated from operations, as determined by IFRS, and our calculation of Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under IFRS.

Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA is included herein because it is a basis upon which we assess our financial performance and because we believe that it presents useful information to investors regarding a company's ability to service and/or incur indebtedness and it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry.

Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under IFRS. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA does not reflect the interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;
  • Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA does not reflect changes in or cash requirements for our working capital needs; and
  • Other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA should not be considered a measure of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business.

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of Adjusted (LBITDA)/EBITDA to total comprehensive (loss) and net cash (used in)/ generated from operating activities for the periods presented:

Notes:
 
(1) Ownership days are the aggregate number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet has been owned by us.
(2) Available days are the number of ownership days less the aggregate number of days that our vessels are off-hire due to scheduled repairs or repairs under guarantee, vessel upgrades or special surveys.
(3) Operating days are the number of available days less the aggregate number of days that the vessels are off-hire due to any reason, including unforeseen circumstances but excluding days during which vessels are seeking employment.
(4) Bareboat charter days are the aggregate number of days during which the vessels in our fleet are subject to a bareboat charter.
(5) We calculate fleet utilization by dividing the number of operating days during a period by the number of available days during the period.
(6) Average number of vessels is measured by the sum of the number of days each vessel was part of our fleet during a relevant period divided by the number of calendar days in such period.
(7) TCE rates are our voyage revenues less net revenues from our bareboat charters less voyage expenses during a period divided by the number of our available days during the period excluding bareboat charter days, which is consistent with industry standards. TCE is a measure not in accordance with GAAP.
(8) We calculate daily vessel operating expenses by dividing vessel operating expenses by ownership days for the relevant time period excluding bareboat charter days.
