Follow-on Offering
On June 30, 2011 the Company completed a public equity offering of 2,750,000 common shares priced at $8.00 per share to the public. The net proceeds from the offering after deducting the underwriting discount and offering expenses were approximately $20.4 million. The Company has 10,039,688 common shares issued and outstanding as of today.

Dividend Declaration
On June 6, 2011, Globus declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.16 per common share for the second quarter of 2011, the fourth consecutive quarterly cash dividend declared by the Company's Board of Directors since the listing of its common shares on the NASDAQ Global Market in November 2010. This dividend was paid on or about July 28, 2011, to shareholders of record as of June 17, 2011, at which time the Company had 7,289,688 common shares outstanding.

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.

Fleet Development
In June 2011 we took delivery of the vessel "Moon Globe," a 2005-built Panamax dry bulk carrier, for a purchase price of $31.4 million. The "Moon Globe" was built at Hudong-Zhonghua Shipyard in China and has a carrying capacity of 74,432 DWT.

The vessels "Sky Globe," "Star Globe" and "Jin Star" were delivered during the second quarter of 2010.

Currently, the Company's subsidiaries own and operate six modern vessels with a total carrying capacity of 394,096 DWT and a weighted average age of 4.7 years as of June 30, 2011.

In March 2011 a new subsidiary of Globus agreed to acquire from an unaffiliated third party subject to certain conditions a 58,790 DWT Supramax dry bulk vessel for $30.3 million. The vessel was built at the Tsuneishi Heavy Industries Cebu yard in 2007. It is expected to be delivered to the Company in September 2011, at which time we expect to name it the "Sun Globe." In addition, the vessel is expected to be acquired with a time charter agreement attached at the gross rate of $16,000 per day to Cosco Qingdao until the first quarter of 2015. In March 2011, we paid a 10% deposit in the amount of $3.0 million in connection with the acquisition of this vessel.

Upon the expected completion of this acquisition, our fleet will expand to seven modern dry bulk carriers with a total carrying capacity of 452,886 DWT and a weighted average age of 4.8 years as of September 30, 2011.

Fleet Deployment
The Panamax "Tiara Globe" is currently on a time charter (T/C) with Transgrain Shipping that began in February 2010 and is scheduled to expire in a minimum of 24 months (maximum of 26 months) from such date, at the gross rate of $20,000 per day.

The Supramax "River Globe," is currently trading in the spot market.

The Supramax "Sky Globe," which on the day of this press release is trading in the spot market, has entered into a T/C agreement for a minimum of 24 months (maximum of 26 months +/- 15 days) with HMM at the gross rate of $12,000 per day for the first year and $12,500 per day thereafter. The T/C is expected to begin in early September 2011.

The Supramax "Star Globe" was on a T/C with Transgrain Shipping at the gross rate of $22,000 per day until April 2011. The vessel is currently on a T/C with Allied Maritime, Inc. that began in May 2011 and is scheduled to expire in a minimum of 6 months (maximum of 8 months) from such date, at the gross rate of $15,600 per day.

The Kamsarmax "Jin Star" is on a bareboat charter with Eastern Media International and Far Eastern Silo & Shipping for a period of five years (which can be extended for one year at the charterer's option, and thereafter extended one additional year at our option), at the gross rate of $14,250 per day.

The Panamax "Moon Globe" is currently on a T/C with a Gleamray Maritime Inc. guaranteed nominee until June 2013 at a rate of $18,000 per day, net of commissions.

As of the day of this press release, and including the "Sun Globe" which is expected to be delivered in September 2011, we have secured under fixed employment 79% of our fleet days for the remaining of 2011, 58% for 2012 and 44% for 2013.

Management Commentary

George Karageorgiou, President and Chief Executive Officer of Globus Maritime Limited, said:

"We are happy to report profitable results for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2011. We are also pleased that we have signed a new loan with DVB Bank, and have completed the public offering of 2,750,000 new shares, the proceeds of which are to finance our latest acquisitions.

"The operating environment during the last few months has been more adverse as the market is trying to absorb the new tonnage. Non-deliveries continue, with what we understand to be around 35% of the order book failing to deliver for the first six months of 2011. In addition, scrapping is accelerating. Year to date data indicates about 2.65% of the dry bulk fleet was scrapped, being about 195 vessels and 14.2 million dwt. At the same time, about 20% of the fleet remains older than 20 years. With steel prices at an all time high, one would expect scrapping to continue.

"It has been a busy first six months of 2011 for Globus, in what is shaping to be a transformative year for the Company. We continued with our accretive fleet expansion strategy, enhancing the foundation of long term growth for Globus with the addition of a panamax and the expected acquisition of a supramax vessel, both of which have T/C employment. We have a modern fleet of six vessels today, and expect to reach seven vessels during the third quarter.

"We remain committed to pursue further accretive fleet expansion opportunities, while safeguarding the strength of our balance sheet maximizing shareholder value. Since our inception in 2006, Globus has established a track record of aggressive, yet prudent fleet development in line with the market cycle, and now is no different. With a modern fleet, a strong balance sheet, a clear strategy and experienced management team, we believe that Globus is strategically positioned to weather the current challenges of the dry bulk shipping sector."

Elias Deftereos, Chief Financial Officer, added:

"Our recently completed equity offering further strengthens our balance sheet, while our additional contracted loans have expanded our financial flexibility. At the end of June we were in compliance with all our loan covenants, while our Net Debt to Total Capitalization (Net Debt plus Total Equity) stood at 36.4%, a moderate figure for our industry. We are confident that our solid financial position allows us to pursue growth opportunities that many in our sector could not, potentially enhancing our return on equity, along with distributable cash, while improvements in economic conditions and market sentiment occurs."

Results of Operations

Second quarter 2011 ("Q2-11") compared to the second quarter 2010 ("Q2-10")
Total comprehensive income increased by 100% to $1.2 million for Q2-11 from $0.6 million for Q2-10 mainly due to the following factors:

Revenue
Revenue during Q2-11 reached $7.8 million compared to $5.8 million during Q2-10, an increase of 34%. The increase is primarily attributable to the 75% increase in the number of operating days (from 263 in Q2-10 to 461 in Q2-11) despite the 26% decrease in the average TCE rate: during Q2-11 the vessels earned an average TCE of $15,233 per vessel per day as opposed to Q2-10 during which they had earned an average TCE of $20,724. For the same reasons, net revenue reached $6.9 million in Q2-11 from $5.4 million in Q2-10, an increase of 28%. Globus operated an average of 5.1 vessels in Q2-11, compared to an average of 2.9 vessels in Q2-10.

Voyage expenses
Voyage expenses during Q2-11 reached $0.8 million compared to $0.4 million in Q2-10. This increase is mainly attributable to the increase in revenue as well as the increase in the size of our fleet.

Vessel operating expenses
Vessel operating expenses, which include crew costs, provisions, deck and engine stores, lubricating oils, insurance, maintenance, and repairs, increased by $0.5 million, or 38%, to $1.8 million for Q2-11 versus $1.3 million in Q2-10, an increase mainly attributable to the increase in the fleet size.

Average daily operating expenses in Q2-11 reached $4,909 compared to $5,146 in Q2-10. The 5% decrease in the average daily operating expenses is mostly due to the initial supplies for the vessels "Sky Globe" and "Star Globe" which were delivered to Globus in May 2010.

Depreciation
Depreciation increased by 53%, or $0.8 million, to $2.3 million in Q2-11 from $1.5 million in Q2-10. The increase in depreciation expense was due to the increased average number of vessels in our fleet.

Interest expense and finance costs
Interest expenses amounted to $0.6 million versus $0.4 million in Q2-09, attributable primarily to the higher level of bank debt.

H1-11 compared to the first half 2010 ("H1-10")

Total comprehensive income increased by 209% to $3.4 million for H1-11 from $1.1 million for H1-10 mainly due to the following factors:

Revenue
Revenue increased by 40% and reached $16.2 million in the first half of 2011 compared to $11.6 million for the same period in 2010. The increase is primarily attributable to the increase in the number of operating days (from 529 in H1-10 to 895 in H1-11) despite the 17% decrease in the average TCE rate: during H1-11 the vessels earned an average TCE of $16,570 per vessel per day as opposed to H1-10 during which they had earned an average TCE of $20,060. For the same reason, net revenue increased by 33% to $14.4 million in H1-11 compared to $10.8 million in H1-10. Globus operated an average of 5.05 vessels in H1-11 as opposed to operating an average of 3.0 vessels in H1-10.

Vessel operating expenses
Vessel operating expenses increased by 31% to $3.4 million in H1-11 compared to $2.6 million for H1-10, an increase mainly attributable to the increase in the size of our fleet.

Average daily operating expenses reached $4,658 in H1-11 compared to $4,922 during the same period in 2010. This decrease is mostly due to the initial supplies for the vessels "Sky Globe" and "Star Globe" which were delivered to Globus in May 2010.

Interest expense and finance costs
Interest expenses amounted to $1.2 million versus $1.0 million in H1-10, attributable primarily to the higher level of bank debt. All of the Company's bank loans are denominated in U.S. dollars.

Loss/gain 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 June 30, 2011, the two interest rate swap agreements (for $25 million in total, or 23% of our total debt outstanding of $110.15 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 $0.08 million was recorded for H1-11, compared to a non-cash unrealized loss of $0.6 million for H1-10, a result of the change in the fair market value of the interest rate swaps.

Foreign exchange losses, net
Foreign exchange losses were $9,000 during the six-month period ended June 30, 2011, compared to a loss of $1.0 million during the six-month period ended June 30, 2010. Foreign exchange losses during the six-month period ended June 30, 2010 resulted primarily from the change in fair value of cash deposits in Euro, as well as currency exchanges to pay for vessel operating expenses and general and administrative expenses, a portion of which were in currencies other than the U.S. dollar.

Liquidity and capital resources
During the second quarter of 2011 we repaid two regular installments totaling $5 million to our two banks.

During June 2011 we signed a new bank loan with DVB Bank SE for a secured term loan up to $40.0 million (in two tranches up to $20.0 million each) to finance our two recent acquisitions, namely the "Moon Globe" and the "Sun Globe."

Our subsidiary drew the first tranche in the amount of $19.0 million upon the delivery of the Moon Globe in June 2011. We expect another subsidiary will draw the second tranche upon the delivery of the Sun Globe, expected during the third quarter of 2011.

As of June 30, 2011:

  • our cash and bank balances and bank deposits were $31.1 million;
  • our outstanding bank debt was $110.15 million while we were in compliance with our loan covenants, and;
  • an amount up to $20.0 million remained available and undrawn under the new DVB loan.

Net cash used in investing activities during the first half of 2011 included the $3.0 million being the 10% deposit for the acquisition of the Supramax vessel "Sun Globe" and the $31.4 million paid for the "Moon Globe."

In June 2011 Globus completed a follow-on offering of 2,750,000 common shares. The Company has 10,039,688 common shares issued and outstanding as of today.

Scheduled vessel repairs
The "Tiara Globe" was drydocked during the first quarter of 2011. No vessels are scheduled to be drydocked until the end of 2011.

(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 acquired, 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:

(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.

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.
