Paragon Shipping Inc. Reports Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2011 Results

ATHENS, GREECE--(Marketwire - Aug 8, 2011) - Paragon Shipping Inc. (NYSE: PRGN), or the Company, a global shipping transportation company specializing in drybulk cargoes and containers, announced today its results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2011.

Commenting on the results, Michael Bodouroglou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Paragon Shipping, stated, "For the second quarter of 2011, Paragon reported Adjusted EBITDA of $15.4 million, and Adjusted Net Income of $5.2 million, or $0.09 per share, which excludes a non-cash non-recurring loss of $19.8 million, or $0.34 per share, relating to the share consideration received from Box Ships for the vessels sold to it, which was a result of the consideration received by Paragon being partly based on Box Ship's share price on the delivery date of those vessels, and the write off of a portion of the book value of our oldest vessel, the M/V Crystal Seas, for which we are reviewing several options now that her time charter has expired, and certain other non-cash items."

Mr. Bodouroglou continued, "Since the beginning of the year, the drybulk charter market has continued to decline and the orderbook is still at a high level. Subsequent to the second quarter, we have taken certain steps that we believe will position us well to take advantage of the opportunities that we expect to arise during these weak markets. Specifically, we no longer have exposure in the Kamsarmax segment of the market, we have agreed to extend one of our credit facilities that was maturing in 2012 by five years, we have agreed to amend the repayment profile of another credit facility to increase our cash flow. We have also fixed three vessels on time-charters, which improved our fixed rate time charter coverage to 95% of our fleet capacity in 2011, 57% in 2012 and 35% in 2013."

Mr. Bodouroglou concluded, "We remain cautiously optimistic on the medium-term prospects of the drybulk market, and have the resources to take advantage of opportunities that may increase long term shareholder value."

Investment in Affiliate:
In April 2011, the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Box Ships Inc., or Box Ships, successfully completed its initial public offering ("IPO") of 11,000,000 shares of its common stock at $12.00 per share. Upon the closing of the IPO, the Company surrendered its 100 shares of Box Ships' common stock and entered into the sale of Box Voyager, Box Trader and CMA CGM Kingfish with Box Ships in consideration for an aggregate of 3,437,500 shares of Box Ships' common stock, valued at the date of delivery of vessels to Box Ships, and $105.0 million in cash. Following the delivery of the vessels to Box Ships, the Company owns approximately 21.3% of the outstanding common stock of Box Ships. The investment in Box Ships is accounted for under the equity method and is separately reflected on Company's condensed balance sheet.

For the second quarter of 2011, the Company recorded $0.5 million income, representing its share of Box Ships net income for the period.

Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results:
Time charter revenue for the second quarter of 2011 was $25.1 million, compared to $29.5 million for the second quarter of 2010. The Company reported net loss of $16.8 million, or $0.28 per basic and diluted share for the second quarter of 2011, calculated on 58,254,929 weighted average number of basic and diluted shares outstanding for the period and reflecting the impact of the non-cash items discussed below. For the second quarter of 2010, the Company reported net income of $7.3 million, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, calculated on 49,481,540 weighted average number of basic and diluted shares.

Excluding all non-cash items described below, adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2011 was $5.2 million, or $0.09 per basic and diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $6.7 million, or $0.13 per basic and diluted share for the second quarter of 2010. Please refer to the table at the back of this release for reconciliations of GAAP net income to non-GAAP adjusted net income and GAAP earnings per share to non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share.

EBITDA for the second quarter of 2011 was negative $5.9 million, compared to positive $17.5 million for the second quarter of 2010. EBITDA for the second quarter of 2011 was calculated by adding to net loss of $16.8 million, net interest expense and depreciation that, in the aggregate, amounted to $10.9 million. Adjusted EBITDA, excluding all non-cash items described below, was $15.4 million for the second quarter of 2011, compared to $16.2 million for the second quarter of 2010. Please see the table at the back of this release for a reconciliation of non-GAAP EBITDA and non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income.

The Company operated an average of 11.8 vessels during the second quarter of 2011, earning an average time charter equivalent rate, or TCE rate, of $22,466 per day, compared to an average of 11.0 vessels during the second quarter of 2010, earning an average TCE rate of $29,054 per day. Please see the table at the back of this release for a reconciliation of non-GAAP TCE rates to GAAP time charter revenue.

Total adjusted operating expenses for the second quarter of 2011 equaled $8.4 million, or approximately $7,784 per day, including vessel operating expenses, management fees, general and administrative expenses and drydocking costs, but excluding $1.3 million of share-based compensation for the period. For the second quarter of 2010, total adjusted operating expenses were $7.6 million, or approximately $7,618 per day, including the same items as mentioned above, but excluding $2.4 million of share-based compensation.

Second Quarter 2011 Non-cash Items
The Company's results for the three months ended June 30, 2011 included the following non-cash items:

  • Depreciation expense of $0.7 million, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, associated with below market time charters attached to vessels acquired, which increases depreciation expense (amortized over the remaining useful life of the vessel).
  • Impairment loss of $5.0 million, or $0.09 per basic and diluted share, related to the M/V Crystal Seas.
  • An unrealized loss from interest rate swaps of $0.2 million, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share.
  • Loss on sale of vessels of $14.8 million, or $0.25 per basic and diluted share, related to the sale of Box Voyager, Box Trader and CMA CGM Kingfish to Box Ships Inc.
  • Non-cash expenses of $1.3 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, relating to the amortization of the compensation cost recognized for non-vested share awards issued to executive officers, directors and employees and related to share-based compensation to the management company.

In total, these non-cash items decreased net income by $22.0 million, or $0.37 per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2011.

Time Charter Coverage Update
Pursuant to its time chartering strategy, the Company mainly employs vessels under fixed rate time charters for periods ranging from one to five years. Assuming all charter counter parties fully perform under the terms of the charters and that all options are exercised and including the drybulk newbuilding vessels, the Company has secured under such contracts 95%, 57% and 35% of its fleet capacity in 2011, 2012 and 2013, respectively.

(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 the period.
(2) Available days for the fleet are the total calendar days the vessels were in our possession for the relevant period after subtracting off-hire days for major repairs, drydocks or special or intermediate surveys.
(3) Calendar days are the total days we possessed the vessels in our fleet for the relevant period including off-hire days associated with major repairs, drydockings or special or intermediate surveys.
(4) Fleet utilization is the percentage of time that our vessels were available for revenue generating available days and is determined by dividing available days by fleet calendar days for the relevant period.
(5) 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 charters net of voyage expenses by available days for the relevant time period. Voyage expenses primarily consist of port, canal and fuel costs that are unique to a particular voyage. TCE is a non-GAAP 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.
For the time charter equivalent adjusted, other non-cash items relating to the below market time charters attached to vessels acquired, which are amortized over the remaining period of the time charter as an increase to net revenue, have been excluded. The Company excluded amortization of below market acquired time charters because the Company believes that these adjustments provide additional information on the fleet operational results.
(6) Daily vessel operating expenses, which includes crew costs, provisions, deck and engine stores, lubricating oil, insurance, maintenance and repairs, is calculated by dividing vessel operating expenses by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period.
(7) Daily drydocking expenses are calculated by dividing drydocking expenses by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period.
(8) Daily management fees are calculated by dividing management fees payable in cash by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period and exclude share based compensation to the management company.
(9) Daily general and administrative expenses are calculated by dividing general and administrative expense by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period. Non-cash expenses relating to the amortization of the share based compensation cost for non-vested share awards have been excluded.
(10) Total vessel operating expenses, or TVOE, is a measurement of our total expenses associated with operating our vessels. TVOE is the sum of vessel operating expenses, drydocking expenses, management fees and general and administrative expenses. Daily TVOE is calculated by dividing TVOE by fleet calendar days for the relevant time period. Non-cash expenses relating to the amortization of the share based compensation cost for non-vested share awards and share based compensation to the management company have been excluded.

(1) Paragon Shipping Inc. considers EBITDA to represent net income plus net interest expense and depreciation and amortization. The Company's management uses EBITDA as a performance measure. The Company believes that EBITDA is useful to investors because the shipping industry is capital intensive and may involve significant financing costs. EBITDA is not an item recognized by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (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. The Company's definition of EBITDA may not be the same as that used by other companies in the shipping or other industries. The Company excluded non-cash items to derive the adjusted net income and the adjusted EBITDA because the Company believes that these adjustments provide additional information on the fleet operational results.
(2) Excludes a portion of depreciation charged on purchase price adjustment allocated to vessel cost for vessels acquired with below market charters.
