HAMILTON, BERMUDA--(Marketwired - Aug. 6, 2015) -

Highlights

  • Reported second quarter 2015 adjusted net income attributable to shareholders(1) of $41.3 million, or $0.35 per share, compared to an adjusted net loss of $4.1 million, or $0.05 per share, in the same period of the prior year.
  • Generated second quarter 2015 free cash flow(2) of $57.9 million, or $0.50 per share.
  • In early-August 2015, agreed to acquire 12 on-the-water modern Suezmax tankers from Principal Maritime Tankers for an aggregate purchase price of $662 million.

Teekay Tankers Ltd. (Teekay Tankers or the Company) (NYSE: TNK) today reported adjusted net income attributable to its shareholders (1) of $41.3 million, or $0.35 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, compared to an adjusted net loss of $4.1 million, or $0.05 per share, for the same period in the prior year. The increase is primarily due to stronger spot tanker rates in the second quarter of 2015 compared to the same period in the prior year, an increase in fleet size due to the acquisition of the four Long Range 2 (LR2) product tankers and one Aframax tanker in the first quarter of 2015 and the addition of the nine in-chartered vessels that delivered to the Company during 2014 and the first half of 2015. Adjusted net income attributable to shareholders excludes a number of specific items that had the net effect of increasing net income attributable to shareholders by $3.0 million, or $0.03 per share, and by $8.7 million, or $0.10 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, as detailed in Appendix A to this release. Including these items, the Company reported, on a GAAP basis, net income attributable to its shareholders of $44.2 million, or $0.38 per share, and $4.6 million, or $0.05 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Net revenues(3) were $104.0 million and $40.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

During the second quarter of 2015, the Company generated $57.9 million, or $0.50 per share, of free cash flow(2), compared to $9.2 million, or $0.11 per share, in the second quarter of 2014, due to higher average spot rates earned and an increase in the size of the Company's fleet. On July 2, 2015, Teekay Tankers declared a dividend of $0.03 per share for the second quarter of 2015, which was paid on July 31, 2015 to all shareholders of record on July 17, 2015. Since the Company's inception, it has declared dividends in 31 consecutive quarters.

CEO Commentary

"Our second quarter results benefited from the prevailing counter-seasonally strong crude spot tanker rates during the quarter," commented Kevin Mackay, Teekay Tankers' Chief Executive Officer. "We believe the ongoing strength in the tanker market reflects the continuing positive tanker market fundamentals of low fleet growth, growing global oil demand and an increase in long-haul tanker movements as more crude oil moves from the Atlantic to Pacific basins."

"Record high crude oil supply from OPEC and continued crude oil stockpiling as a result of the lower oil price environment have provided further support to the crude tanker market during the second quarter and into the third quarter to-date."

Mr. Mackay added, "While Teekay Tankers earned strong free cash flow of $58 million, or $0.50 per share, during the quarter, our results would have been even stronger in the absence of some non-recurring issues related to three vessels which have largely been rectified, with the exception of one charter-in tanker which has not yet delivered due to vetting issues."

"Teekay Tankers continues to deliver significant shareholder value by executing on its strategy using a variety of levers," Mr. Mackay continued. "Over the past year, we have substantially increased the Company's exposure to the strong spot market at the right point in the tanker market cycle by building an attractive portfolio of 12 in-chartered tankers and securing accretive acquisitions of 17 high-quality on-the-water tankers, which solidifies Teekay Tankers' position as the world's largest owner and operator of mid-size crude oil tankers. This includes the 12 modern on-the-water Suezmax tankers that the Company agreed to acquire this past week, which will reduce our average fleet age and is expected to be immediately accretive to our earnings, free cash flow, and net asset value per share."

Summary of Recent Developments

Recent Accretive Acquisitions

Suezmax Fleet Acquisition

In early-August 2015, Teekay Tankers agreed to acquire 12 modern Suezmax tankers from Principal Maritime Tankers (Principal Maritime) for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $662 million. The 12 vessels have an average age of 5.5 years, which reduces the average age of Teekay Tankers' fleet by 1.2 years. The vessels are all scheduled to deliver by the end of October 2015 and are expected to trade in the spot tanker market upon or soon after delivery. This transaction is fully financed and is expected to be immediately accretive to earnings, free cash flow and net asset value per share.

Acquisition of Ship-to-Ship Transfer Business

In late-July 2015, Teekay Tankers acquired SPT Inc. (SPT) from Teekay Corporation (Teekay) and a Norway-based marine transportation company, I.M. Skaugen SE, for a purchase price of $45.5 million. SPT provides a full suite of ship-to-ship (STS) transfer services in the oil, gas and dry bulk industries. In addition to full service lightering and lightering support, it also provides consultancy, terminal management and project development services. This acquisition establishes Teekay Tankers as a global player in the STS transfer business, which will increase the Company's fee-based revenue and its overall fleet utilization. SPT owns and operates a fleet of six STS support vessels and has one chartered-in Aframax tanker.

The Suezmax fleet and SPT acquisitions have been fully financed through the issuance of $185.5 million of new common shares, including $75.5 million to Teekay, $50 million to Principal Maritime and $60 million to a group of institutional investors, a new debt facility of approximately $400 million and existing liquidity, which includes $37.3 million of net proceeds received during the second quarter of 2015 from the issuance of common shares under the Company's continuous offering program. The $185.5 million of newly issued common shares were priced at a weighted average price of $6.82 per share.

Time Charter-Out Vessels

In July 2015, Teekay Tankers entered into time charter-out contracts for one LR2 product tanker and two Suezmax tankers. The LR2 product tanker has a time charter-out contract with a daily rate of $26,000 and a firm contract period of 22 months. The Suezmax tankers have time charter-out contracts with daily rates of $32,900 and firm contract periods of 24 months.

Tanker Market

Crude tanker spot rates have remained strong from the first quarter of 2015 into the second quarter of 2015, achieving the highest second-quarter levels in seven years. The market strength is primarily due to ongoing low global oil prices, record high crude oil supply from OPEC and further crude oil stockpiling. In general, tanker rates continue to be positively impacted by the following factors:

  • Positive fleet fundamentals, as fleet growth remains below historical averages;
  • Ongoing commercial and strategic stockpiling due to low oil prices in both the OECD and non-OECD drove tanker demand;
  • High refinery throughput, as refiners took advantage of positive margins due to low global oil prices; and
  • Increased earnings, as bunker fuel prices remain low due to low global oil prices.

At the beginning of the third quarter of 2015, crude tanker rates have remained counter-seasonally strong due to high refining margins driven by on-going low oil prices, record-high OPEC crude oil production, vessel delays as onshore storage tanks remain at or near capacity, and intermittent weather delays in certain regions, including the U.S. Gulf. While crude tanker rates could potentially soften slightly into the end of the third quarter of 2015, as refineries enter scheduled maintenance, they are expected to remain strong relative to historical third quarter average rates.

LR2 product tanker rates in the second quarter of 2015 were also strong, achieving the highest average levels for a second quarter in seven years. LR2 rates were supported by high refinery utilization, increased long-haul trade out of new Middle Eastern refineries, increased seasonal gasoline and diesel demand, and low oil prices which has reduced naphtha prices in relation to liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). The latter factor has led some petrochemical plants to use naphtha rather than LPG for feedstock. LR2 product tanker rates continue to be supported into the third quarter of 2015 by increased volumes from new refineries in the Middle East and India, as well as surging product exports out of China which are resulting in tighter vessel supply.

The global tanker fleet grew by 8.4 million deadweight tonnes (mdwt), or 1.7 percent, in the first half of 2015. The global Suezmax fleet grew by six vessels, or 1.3 percent, while the uncoated Aframax fleet grew by only one vessel, or 0.2 percent. During the same period, the LR2 fleet grew by 17 vessels, or 6.5 percent. Looking ahead, the global tanker fleet is forecast to grow by a total of 2.0 to 2.5 percent in 2015, with growth weighted towards the product tanker sectors. The uncoated Aframax sector is expected to experience another year of negative fleet growth, while the Suezmax fleet is projected to grow by only 1.0 percent in 2015.

In July 2015, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) reduced its outlook for 2015 global economic growth to 3.3 percent, down 0.2 percent from its April 2015 forecast. This represents only a slight decrease from global economic growth of 3.4 percent in 2014. Based on an average of forecasts from the International Energy Agency, the Energy Information Administration and OPEC, global oil demand is forecast to grow by 1.3 million barrels per day (mb/d) in 2015, or 0.5 mb/d higher than demand growth in 2014.

The outlook for crude spot tanker rates is expected to remain positive in 2015 and into 2016 based on a combination of low fleet growth and an increase in long-haul tanker demand as more crude oil moves from the Atlantic to the Pacific basin. Low oil prices are expected to continue to provide support for tanker demand into the second half of 2015 and into 2016.
