The Company is continuing the policy of paying a variable quarterly dividend in excess of 50% of the net income of the previous quarter, subject to any reserves the board of directors may from time to time determine are required. The declaration and payment of dividends, if any, will always be subject to the discretion of the board of directors of the Company, and the amount of dividends paid in any period is not indicative of the amount that may be paid in the future. The timing and amount of any dividends declared will depend on, among other things: our earnings, financial condition and anticipated cash requirements and availability, additional acquisitions of vessels, restrictions in our debt arrangements, the provisions of Marshall Islands law affecting the payment of distributions to shareholders, required capital and drydocking expenditures, reserves established by our board of directors, increased or unanticipated expenses, a change in our dividend policy, additional borrowings or future issuances of securities and other factors, many of which will be beyond our control. We can give no assurance that dividends will be paid in the future.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

During the fourth quarter of 2011 we repaid the following principal amounts to our banks:

1) a regular installment of $0.5 million to Deutsche Schiffsbank, and

Net cash used in investing activities during 2011 included the $30.3 million paid for the acquisition of the "Sun Globe" and the $31.4 million paid for the "Moon Globe."

In November 2011 Globus paid the dividend for the third quarter 2011, amounting to $1.6 million, to shareholders on record on October 31, 2011.

In June 2011 Globus completed a follow-on offering of 2,750,000 common shares, raising $22 million in gross proceeds which enabled us to fund our fleet expansion program.

Current Fleet Deployment
The "Tiara Globe" is on a time charter ("T/C") with Transgrain Shipping that began in February 2010 and is scheduled to expire in early March 2012, at $20,000 per day gross.

The "River Globe" is on a T/C with Allied Maritime that began in May 2011 and is scheduled to expire in early March 2012, at $14,500 per day gross.

The "Star Globe" completed her employment at $15,600 per day gross with Allied Maritime Inc. ("Allied") in February 2012. As already announced, Allied delivered the vessel in a location outside the redelivery area required under the charter, and did not replenish the quantity of bunkers required under the charter. Furthermore, the vessel was arrested in Panama by a bunker supplier who had not been paid by Allied. To secure the vessel's release from arrest, the Company had to pay the bunker supplier's invoice in full, plus legal costs, as well as an overdue invoice, plus legal costs, of a second bunker supplier, who had also not been paid by Allied. Following these payments, amounting to $593,537 in total, the arrest of the vessel was lifted on February 22, 2012. The Company is considering its legal options to recover the amounts paid, in addition to all other amounts owed by Allied. The vessel is currently on a short time charter to Pacific Basin that began in February 2012 and is scheduled to expire in a minimum 65 days (maximum 110 days) at $13,000 per day gross.

As of the day of this press release, we have secured under fixed employment 60% of our fleet days for the rest of 2012, and 45% for 2013.

Management Commentary

George Karageorgiou, Chief Executive Officer of Globus, stated:

"Despite a challenging environment, 2011 was an important year for Globus. We successfully completed a follow-on offering in June, raising funds from a new investor base and increasing the liquidity in our stock. This offering allowed us to expand the fleet by 42% in terms of carrying capacity.

"The Company maintained profitability throughout every quarter of 2011, which enabled us to reward our shareholders with over $5.1 million in dividends.

"A few days ago we issued a statement regarding the situation with the 'Star Globe' and her previous charterer, Allied Maritime Inc. We are taking proper action and remain vigilant to safeguard our interests.

"Demand for dry bulk commodities remains strong but may not be able to absorb the continued entrance of new tonnage into the market in 2012, despite the significant slippage due to delays, non-deliveries and high scrapping levels.

"In this volatile and uncertain environment, we are confident that we are well placed to navigate through the storm, with 60% of the remaining operating days in 2012 and 45% in 2013 already secured under fixed employment. In the current market conditions we will remain opportunistic in terms of fleet deployment until charter rates recover. We take confidence in our competitive advantages which include a modern fleet, tested management, efficient in-house technical and commercial management, a strong balance sheet and sufficient charter cover."

Elias Deftereos, Chief Financial Officer of Globus, added:

"Our results for the fourth quarter and year 2011 reflect the bigger size of our fleet, as well as the continued softness of charter rates.

"Despite the difficult condition in the financial markets, we agreed to a new loan with DVB Bank in June 2011, which helped us fund our latest acquisitions. Throughout 2011 we made regular principal payments on our three loan facilities. At the end of December 2011, our Net Debt to Total Capitalization (Net Debt plus Total Equity) stood at 42.2%, a moderate figure for our industry.

"Today, our outstanding debt amounts to $111.4 million. Furthermore, unless we re-draw funds under the Credit Suisse revolving facility, our scheduled principal debt repayments for the remainder of 2012 and 2013 are $5.4 and $13.4 million respectively.

"I must highlight that, at a time when many of our peers are renegotiating or restructuring their debt facilities, Globus is in compliance with all the loan covenants. As we continue to expand the Company's future earnings power, we remain dedicated to maintaining an appropriate capital structure for the benefit of our shareholders."

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION OF THE FOURTH QUARTER 2011 RESULTS

The Company recorded total comprehensive income for Q4-11 of $2.3 million, or $0.23 basic earnings per share, from $2.6 million and $0.36 basic earnings per share for Q4-10.

During Q4-11, we had an average of 7.0 dry bulk vessels in our fleet and 644 ownership days, compared to an average of 5.0 dry bulk vessels and 460 ownership days in Q4-10.

Revenues
Revenues during Q4-11 reached $10.1 million, compared to $8.4 million in Q4-10, an increase of $1.7 million. The 20% increase is primarily attributable to the 42% increase in the number of operating days (from 452 in Q4-10 to 644 in Q4-11) which was partially offset by the 18% decrease in the average TCE rate: during Q4-11 the vessels earned an average TCE of $14,987 as opposed to Q4-10 during which they earned an average TCE of $18,209. The decrease in TCE rates resulted from lower charter rates achieved in the fourth quarter of 2011 versus the same period last year for some vessels in our fleet. For the same reasons, net revenues during Q4-11 increased by $1.5 million and reached $9.5 million compared to $8.0 million during the last quarter of 2010.

Vessel Operating Expenses
Vessel operating expenses, which include crew costs, provisions, deck and engine stores, lubricating oils, insurance, maintenance, and repairs, increased in Q4-11 to $2.2 million from $1.8 million during Q4-10. This 22% increase is largely attributable to the increase in the fleet size. Average daily operating expenses were $4,031 during Q4-11, compared to $4,791 during the same quarter of 2010, representing a 16% decrease.

Gain/Loss on Derivative Financial Instruments
The valuation of our two interest rate swaps at the end of each quarter is affected by the prevailing interest rates at that time. On December 31, 2011, the two interest rate SWAP agreements (for $25 million in total, or 22% of our total debt outstanding of $111.4 million) were recorded at fair market value, which is the amount that would be paid by us or to us should those instruments be terminated. A non-cash unrealized gain of $0.3 million was recorded in Q4-11, compared to a $0.4 million non-cash unrealized gain in Q4-10, a result of the change in the fair market value of the interest rate swaps.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION OF THE FISCAL YEAR 2011 RESULTS

We started the year 2011 with five vessels with a total capacity of 319,664 DWT. During 2011 we acquired the "Sun Globe" and the "Moon Globe." At the end of 2011 we owned seven vessels with a weighted average age of approximately 5.1 years and a total carrying capacity of 452,886 DWT.

As a result, during 2011 we owned an average of 5.8 dry bulk vessels for 2,125 ownership days, while during 2010 we had owned an average of 4.0 vessels for 1,458 ownership days.

Revenues
As a result of the prevailing charter rates and the increase in the number of vessels in the fleet, gross revenue increased by $6.7 million to $35.6 million for 2011, from $28.9 million in 2010. Net revenues increased by $5.6 million to $32.3 million in 2011, from $26.7 million in 2010. The increase is primarily attributable to the 45% increase in the operating days (to 2,083 from 1,441), a result of the higher average number of vessels in the fleet. The increase is partially offset by the 18% decrease in the average time charter rates earned by some of our vessels. During 2011 our vessels earned an average TCE rate of $15,619 per day, against an average TCE rate of $18,996 per day during 2010.

Vessel Operating Expenses
Vessel operating expenses increased by $2.1 million to $8.0 million in 2011, compared to $5.9 million in 2010. The 36% increase in operating expenses is mainly attributable to the increase in ownership days. The breakdown of our operating expenses for the years 2011 and 2010 was as follows:

2011 2010
Crew expenses 52% 52%
Repairs and spares 17% 17%
Insurance 11% 10%
Stores 12% 12%
Lubricants 6% 7%
Other 2% 2%

Daily operating expenses averaged $4,527 in 2011 compared to $4,628 in 2010, representing a decrease of 2%.

Depreciation
Depreciation increased by $2.8 million to $10.2 million for 2011, compared to $7.4 million for 2010. This 38% increase is directly the result of the increase in ownership days. The Company continues the policy to depreciate vessels over a useful life of 25 years, on a straight line basis down to their scrap value calculated at their lightweight at $200 per tonne.

Amortization of fair value of time charter attached to vessels
Amortization for 2011 was 0.8 million compared to $nil for 2010. Amortization refers to the fair value of above market time charters attached to the two vessels acquired in 2011, which is amortized on a straight line basis over the remaining period of the time charters.

Interest Expenses and Finance Costs
Interest expenses increased by $0.7 million to $2.8 million for 2011, compared to $2.1 million for 2010, mainly due to the higher average debt balances.

Gain/(loss) on Derivative Financial Instruments
The change in the valuation of the SWAP agreements between December 31, 2010 and December 31, 2011 was recorded as a $0.4 million non-cash unrealized gain for 2011, compared to a $0.6 million non-cash unrealized loss for 2010.

Scheduled Vessel Repairs

Three vessels are scheduled for dry docking in 2012. We budget 20 days per dry docking per vessel. Actual length will vary based on the condition of the vessel, yard schedules, and other factors.

(1) Net Revenue is computed by subtracting voyage expenses from revenue. Net Revenue is not a recognized measurement under international financial reporting standards ("IFRS") and should not be considered as an alternative or comparable to net income.

(2) Adjusted EBITDA represents net 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 drydocking costs, amortization of fair value of time charter attached to vessels, impairment and gains or losses on sale of vessels. Adjusted 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 EBITDA may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under IFRS.

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

Because of these limitations, Adjusted 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 total comprehensive income to Adjusted EBITDA for the periods presented:

(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.

(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 revenue less net revenue 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.

The following table reflects the calculation of our daily TCE rates for the periods presented.

Safe Harbor Statement
This communication contains "forward-looking statements" as defined under U.S. federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements provide the Company's current expectations or forecasts of future events. Forward-looking statements include statements about the Company's expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, intentions, assumptions and other statements that are not historical facts or that are not present facts or conditions. Words or phrases such as "anticipate," "believe," "continue," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "ongoing," "plan," "potential," "predict," "project," "will" or similar words or phrases, or the negatives of those words or phrases, may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not necessarily mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties and are based on potentially inaccurate assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expected or implied by the forward-looking statements. The Company's actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in forward-looking statements for many reasons specifically as described in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, you should not unduly rely on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this communication. Globus undertakes no obligation to publicly revise any forward-looking statement to reflect circumstances or events after the date of this communication or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. You should, however, review the factors and risks Globus describes in the reports it will file from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission after the date of this communication.
