Teekay Tankers Ltd. (Teekay Tankers or the Company) (NYSE:TNK) today reported adjusted net income attributable to its shareholders (1) of $2.6 million, or $0.03 per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, compared to adjusted net loss attributable to its shareholders of $4.0 million, or $0.05 per share, for the same period in the prior year. The increase in adjusted net income attributable to its shareholders is primarily due to stronger spot tanker rates in the third quarter of 2014 compared to the same period in the prior year, an increase in fleet size due to the addition of six in-chartered vessels delivered during 2014 and higher equity income due to commercial and technical management fees earned through the Company's 50 percent interest in the conventional tanker commercial management and technical management operations purchased from Teekay Corporation on August 1, 2014. Adjusted net income attributable to its shareholders excludes a number of specific items that had the net effect of increasing net income attributable to its shareholders by $3.3 million, or $0.04 per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and increasing net loss attributed to its shareholders by $10.6 million, or $0.12 per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2013, 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 $5.9 million, or $0.07 per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, compared to a net loss attributable to its shareholders of $14.6 million, or $0.17 per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2013. Net revenues(2) were $50.6 million and $39.0 million for the quarters ended September 30, 2014 and September 30, 2013, respectively.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company reported adjusted net income attributable to its shareholders (1) of $15.3 million, or $0.18 per share, compared to adjusted net loss attributed to its shareholders of $13.9 million, or $0.17 per share, for the same period in the prior year. The increase in adjusted net income attributable to its shareholders is primarily due to stronger spot tanker rates for the first nine months of 2014 compared to the same period in the prior year, an increase in fleet size due to addition of six in-chartered vessels delivered during 2014, an increase in interest income recognized from the Company's investment in term loans, which concluded in March 2014, and higher equity income from the Company's equity accounted investments for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same period in the prior year. Adjusted net income attributable to its shareholders excludes a number of specific items that had the net effect of increasing net income attributable to its shareholders by $21.5 million, or $0.25 per share, and increasing the net loss attributable to its shareholders by $8.4 million, or $0.10 per share, for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 and September 30, 2013, 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 $36.9 million, or $0.43 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, compared to net loss attributable to its shareholders of $22.3 million, or $0.27 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. Net revenues(2) were $151.7 million and $122.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and September 30, 2013, respectively.

During the third quarter of 2014, the Company generated $16.2 million, or $0.19 per share, of Cash Available for Distribution(3), compared to $8.7 million, or $0.10 per share, in the third quarter of 2013 due to the reasons noted above. On October 3, 2014, Teekay Tankers declared a dividend of $0.03 per share for the third quarter of 2014, which was paid on October 31, 2014 to all shareholders of record on October 17, 2014. Since the Company's initial public offering in December 2007, it has declared dividends in 28 consecutive quarters, which now total $7.395 per share on a cumulative basis.

"Crude spot tanker rates for the third quarter of 2014 reached their highest average for a third quarter since 2008," commented Kevin Mackay, Chief Executive Officer of Teekay Tankers. "Stronger seasonal oil demand early in the quarter, an increase in long-haul crude tanker movements from the Atlantic to Pacific and an increase in oil purchases for onshore commercial and strategic storage were some of the key factors that combined to push average spot tanker rates higher during the quarter. Although rates weakened slightly in September, they rebounded again in October in part due to the completion of refinery turnarounds and an increase in global imports ahead of the winter season. Despite recent downward revisions in global economic growth forecasts, we believe that limited crude tanker fleet growth and a continued increase in long-haul crude tanker movements from the Atlantic to Pacific basins will continue to support a general firming of average spot tanker rates, while the impact of lower global oil prices, will result in a reduction in ship operating costs through reduced bunker fuel prices".

"Given our positive spot tanker rate outlook, Teekay Tankers has continued to strategically increase its spot tanker exposure through new in-charter contracts at favourable rates and with option periods," Mr. Mackay continued. "Last month, we secured two additional in-charter Aframax tankers, which will add over 1,175 days to our overall spot tanker exposure and bring our total in-chartered portfolio to ten vessels in time for what we expect will be a stronger winter tanker market. Combined with strong operating leverage and a low cash break-even rate, we believe Teekay Tankers is well-positioned to benefit from a sustained tanker market recovery."

Summary of Recent Developments

New Time Charter-In Vessels

In October 2014, Teekay Tankers secured time charter-in contracts for two additional Aframax vessels, which increased Teekay Tankers' total time charter-in fleet to ten vessels. The new time charter-in contracts have an average daily rate of $18,000 and firm contract periods of six to 33 months, with extension options.

Investment in Tanker Investments Ltd.

In October 2014, Teekay Tankers acquired an additional 0.9 million common shares of Tanker Investments Ltd. (TIL) for a cost of approximately $10 million. The additional investment increases Teekay Tankers' total ownership of TIL to 3.4 million, or approximately 9.3 percent adjusted for TIL's recent share repurchase program.

Acquisition of Teekay Corporation's Commercial and Technical Operations

On August 1, 2014, the Company completed the acquisition of a 50 percent interest in Teekay Tanker Operations Ltd., which owns Teekay's conventional tanker commercial and technical management operations, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $24 million (including $7 million in net working capital). As consideration for this acquisition, the Company issued 4.2 million shares to Teekay Corporation (Teekay), which had a value of $17 million, or $4.03 per share, on the acquisition closing date, and paid Teekay approximately $7 million in cash for the net working capital it assumed in connection with the purchase.

Tanker Market

Crude tanker spot rates strengthened significantly during the third quarter of 2014, with rates achieving the highest average level for a third quarter since 2008. The increase in tanker rates was primarily due to a combination of stronger seasonal oil demand in July and August, an increase in long-haul crude movements from the Atlantic to Pacific and an increase in oil purchases for onshore commercial and strategic storage. These stronger tanker rates weakened towards the end of the third quarter due to the onset of seasonal refinery maintenance, but have since strengthened again in early October ahead of the peak winter demand season. The recent strength in tanker rates is in part due to the impact of lower global oil prices, which is having a positive impact on tanker rates in a number of ways:

  • Lower oil prices encourage stockpiling of crude oil, particularly in China where the government continues to fill the second stage of its Strategic Petroleum Reserve;
  • A contango price structure for crude oil futures encourages buying and could lead to floating storage of oil if the spread between the current and future oil price widens;
  • Lower oil and fuel prices, if sustained, could translate into higher oil demand over time; and
  • Reduced bunker prices are positive for tanker earnings by lowering voyage operating costs.

Long Range 2 (LR2) product tanker spot rates also strengthened during the third quarter, with August rates averaging the highest level since December 2009. LR2 rates have been supported by high levels of Asian naphtha imports from the West coupled with an increase in long-haul product exports from new refineries in the Middle East and Asia. A reduction in global oil prices in recent weeks has also been positive for the LR2 trade, as lower naphtha prices in relation to liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) has led some petrochemical plants to process more naphtha instead of LPG.

The global tanker fleet grew by 4.9 million deadweight tonnes (mdwt), or 1.0 percent, in the first nine months of 2014. The majority of the fleet growth occurred in the product tanker sector while the crude tanker fleet grew by just 1.1 mdwt, or 0.3 percent. The global Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC) fleet has grown by a net seven vessels, or 1.1 percent, in the first nine months of the year while the Suezmax and uncoated Aframax fleets have reduced in size by two vessels, or 0.4 percent, and 13 vessels, or 2.0 percent, respectively. Looking ahead, the Company forecasts 2.0 percent net global tanker fleet growth in 2015 with growth once again weighted towards the product tanker sector and another year of negative fleet growth for the Suezmax and uncoated Aframax sectors.

In October 2014, the International Monetary Fund lowered its outlook for global economic growth to 3.3 percent in 2014, from 3.7 percent, and reduced its 2015 outlook to 3.8 percent, from 4.0 percent. This downward revision has filtered through to global oil demand forecasts with expected demand growth of 0.9 million barrels per day (mb/d) in 2014 and 1.2 mb/d in 2015 compared to forecast growth of 1.2 mb/d and 1.4 mb/d, respectively, in previous forecasts (based on an average of forecasts from the International Energy Agency, the Energy Information Administration, and OPEC).

Despite this downward revision to oil demand forecasts, the tanker market outlook remains positive for the crude tanker sector due to a combination of a shrinking mid-size crude tanker fleet and a continued increase in tanker tonne-mile demand, as an increasing amount of crude oil moves long-haul from the Atlantic to Pacific basins, which is expected to drive an increase in tanker fleet utilization and spot tanker rates during the remainder of 2014 and 2015.

(1) In 2010, the Company invested in two term loans (Loans) secured by two 2010-built VLCC vessels. The borrowers under the Loans were in default on their interest payment obligations since the first quarter of 2013, and subsequently, in default of the repayment of the loan principal from the loan maturity date in July 2013. In late-March 2014, the Company took full ownership of the vessels held as collateral in satisfaction of the Loans and accrued interest and recorded the vessels at their fair value at that date. As a result, the Company recognized an additional $9.1 million of interest income owing under the Loans for the three months ended March 31, 2014.
(2) In early May 2014, the Company sold to Tanker Investments Limited (TIL) two wholly-owned subsidiaries, each of which owns one VLCC, for aggregate proceeds of $154.0 million plus related working capital on closing of $1.7 million. In the second quarter of 2014, the Company recognized a $10.0 million gain on this transaction.
(3) Includes realized losses relating to interest rate swaps that relate to the amounts actually paid of $2.5 million, $2.5 million, and $2.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014, June 30, 2014 and September 30, 2013, respectively, and $7.5 million and $7.4 million for the six months ended September 30, 2014, and September 30, 2013, respectively.
(4) Included in equity income for the three months ended September 30, 2014 are the Company's proportionate share of earnings from its 6.5 percent interest (excluding an additional 0.9 million common shares acquired in October 2014) in Tanker Investments Ltd., which owns 14 conventional tankers, its 50 percent interest in High-Q Joint Venture, which owns one VLCC tanker, and its 50 percent interest in Teekay Tanker Operations Ltd, which owns Teekay's conventional tanker commercial and technical management operations. The total equity income of $1.6 million includes $0.4 million of the Company's proportionate share of items included in Appendix A to this release, related primarily to unrealized gains on derivative instruments and foreign exchange items.
