(1) For existing vessels, the year represents the year built. For newbuilds, the dates shown reflect the expected delivery date.
(2) Charter rate is the recognized gross daily charter rate. For charter parties with variable rates among periods or consecutive charter parties with the same charterer, the recognized gross daily charter rate represents the weighted average gross daily charter rate over the duration of the applicable charter period or series of charter periods, as applicable. Charter agreements may provide for additional payments, namely ballast bonus, to compensate for vessel repositioning.
(3) The date listed represent either the actual start date or, in the case of a contracted charter that had not commenced as of May 27, 2016, the scheduled start date. The actual start date and redelivery date may differ from the scheduled start and redelivery dates depending on the terms of the charter and market conditions.
(4) A period time charter at a gross daily charter rate linked to the Baltic Panamax Index ("BPI") plus a premium.
(5) A period time charter of ten years at a gross daily charter rate of $23,100 for the first two and a half years and of $24,810 for the remaining period. The charter agreement grants the charterer an option to purchase the vessel at any time beginning at the end of the seventh year of the charter, at a price of $39 million less 1.00% commission, decreasing thereafter on a pro-rated basis by $1.5 million per year. The Company holds a right of first refusal to buy back the vessel in the event that the charterer exercises its option to purchase the vessel and subsequently offers to sell such vessel to a third party. The charter agreement also grants the charterer the option to extend the period time charter for an additional twelve months at a time, at a gross daily charter rate of $26,330, less 1.25% total commissions, which option may be exercised by the charterer a maximum of two times.
(6) Vessel sold and leased back on a net daily bareboat charter rate of $6,500, for a period of 10 years, with a purchase obligation at the end of the 10th year and purchase options in favor of the Company after the second year of the bareboat charter, at annual intervals and predetermined purchase prices.
   

The contracted employment of fleet ownership days as of May 27, 2016 was:

     
2016 (remaining)   41%
2016 (full year)   64%
2017   11%
2018   9%
     

Capital expenditure requirements and liquidity

As of May 27, 2016, the Company had agreed to acquire five newbuild vessels, with one to be delivered in 2016, three to be delivered in 2017, and one to be delivered in 2018. The remaining capital expenditure requirements to shipyards or sellers before minor adjustments for shipyards' costs relating to certain delayed deliveries for the five vessels amounted to $115.4 million, of which $25.0 million is due in 2016, $68.6 million in 2017 and $21.8 million is due in 2018.

As of May 27, 2016, the Company had liquidity of $210.4 million consisting of $115.9 million in cash and bank time deposits, $17.2 million in restricted cash and $77.3 million available under committed loan facilities and financing transactions.

Dividend Policy

The Board of Directors of the Company has not declared a dividend for the first quarter of 2016. The Company had 83,561,811 shares of common stock issued and outstanding as of May 27, 2016.

The declaration and payment of dividends, if any, will always be subject to the discretion of the Board of Directors of the Company. The timing and amount of any dividends declared will depend on, among other things: (i) the Company's earnings, financial condition and cash requirements and available sources of liquidity; (ii) decisions in relation to the Company's growth strategies; (iii) provisions of Marshall Islands and Liberian law governing the payment of dividends; (iv) restrictive covenants in the Company's existing and future debt instruments; and (v) global economic and financial conditions.

Management Commentary

Dr. Loukas Barmparis, President of the Company, said: "We had initiated an operating expenses cost reduction initiative in May 2015, which resulted in substantially lower daily vessel operating expenses5, reaching the figure of $3,653 for the first quarter of 2016. As a result,  in this lowest freight market experienced over the last 30 years, our Time Charter Equivalent rate of $6,355 per day is higher than our aggregate daily vessel operating expenses and daily general and administrative expenses5 of $4,854, adding to our liquidity."

Management Discussion of First Quarter 2016 Results

Net loss for the first quarter of 2016 was $17.8 million compared to net loss of $6.0 million during the same period in 2015, mainly due to the following factors:

Net revenues: Net revenues decreased by 23% to $24.7 million for the first quarter of 2016, compared to $32.1 million for the same period in 2015, mainly due to a decrease in charter rates. The Company operated 36.36 vessels on average during the first quarter of 2016, earning a TCE6 rate of $6,355, compared to 32.72 vessels and a TCE rate of $9,440 during the same period in 2015.

Vessel operating expenses: Vessel operating expenses decreased by 16% to $12.1 million for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $14.3 million for the same period in 2015, while the average number of vessels increased by 11% to 36.36 vessels, from 32.72 vessels respectively. The decrease in operating expenses is due to a decrease in all categories of vessel operating expenses with the exception of crew wages. Vessel operating expense for the first quarter of 2016 and 2015 included one and three dry-dockings respectively. 

Loss on sale of assets: Loss on sale of assets amounted to $2.75 million for the first quarter of 2016, compared to zero for the same period in 2015, as a result of the conclusion of the sales of the vessels Kypros Unity and Stalo.

Depreciation: Depreciation increased to $11.9 million for the first quarter of 2016, compared to $11.1 million for the same period in 2015, as a result of the increase in the average number of vessels operated by the Company during the first quarter of 2016.

Loss on derivatives: Loss on derivatives was $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2016, compared to a loss of $1.2 million for the same period in 2015, as a result of the mark-to-market valuation of the Company's interest rate swap transactions that we employ to manage the risk and interest rate exposure of our loan and credit facilities. These swaps economically hedge part of the interest rate exposure of the Company's aggregate loans outstanding. The average remaining period of our swap contracts was 1.8 years as of March 31, 2016. The valuation of these interest rate swap transactions at the end of each quarter is affected by the prevailing interest rates at that time.

Voyage expenses: Voyage expenses decreased by 21% to $3.8 million for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $4.8 million for the same period in 2015, mainly due to a decrease in vessel repositioning expenses affected by lower fuel prices.

Interest expenses: Interest expense increased to $4.8 million for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $2.1 million for the same period in 2015, as a result of the four-vessel sale and leaseback transactions concluded in September 2015, which led to the increase in the average outstanding amount of loans and credit facilities and to the weighted average interest rate of such loans and credit facilities.

Daily vessel operating expenses7: Daily vessel operating expenses reduced by 25% to $3,653 for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $4,872 for the same period in 2015 as a result of reduced vessel operating expenses.

Daily general and administrative expenses7: Daily general and administrative expenses, which include daily fixed and variable management fees payable to our Managers8 and daily costs incurred in relation to our operation as a public company, were $1,201 for the first quarter of 2016, compared to $1,096 for the same period in 2015.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income/(loss), Adjusted Net income/(loss) available to common shareholders and Adjusted Earnings/(loss) per share are not recognized measurements under US GAAP.

Adjusted Net income/(loss) represents Net income/(loss) before loss on sale of assets, loss from inventory valuation, gain/(loss) on derivatives and gain/(loss) on foreign currency. Adjusted Net income/(loss) available to common shareholders represents Adjusted Net income/(loss) less Preferred dividend.

EBITDA represents Net income/(loss) before interest, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA before loss on sale of assets, loss from inventory valuation, gain/(loss) on derivatives and gain/(loss) on foreign currency. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized measurements under US GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA assist the Company's management and investors by increasing the comparability of the Company's fundamental performance from period to period and against the fundamental performance of other companies in the Company's industry that provide EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA information. The Company believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful in evaluating the Company's operating performance compared to that of other companies in the Company's industry because the calculation of EBITDA generally eliminates the effects of financings, income taxes and the accounting effects of capital expenditures and acquisitions and the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA generally further eliminates the effects from loss on sale of assets, loss from inventory valuation, gain/(loss) on derivatives and gain/(loss) on foreign currency, items which may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net income/(loss), Adjusted Net income/(loss) available to common shareholders and Adjusted Earnings/(loss) per share have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under US GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as substitutes for net income and other operations data prepared in accordance with US GAAP or as a measure of profitability. While EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used as measures of operating results and performance, they are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.
