GAAP net loss and adjusted net loss were impacted by lower spot tanker rates in the third quarter of 2016 compared to the same period of the prior year, partially offset by an increase in fleet size as a result of the acquisition of 19 modern mid-size tankers during 2015. GAAP net loss was also impacted by the write-down of one MR tanker that is scheduled to be sold in early-November 2016, partially offset by an increase in unrealized gains on derivative instruments.

CEO Commentary

"During the third quarter of 2016, we generated free cash flow of $26.6 million and declared a dividend of three cents per share," commented Kevin Mackay, Teekay Tankers' Chief Executive Officer. "Our results during the quarter were impacted by the lowest quarterly crude tanker rates in three years resulting from various factors, including normal seasonality, reduced oil supply due to temporary outages in key export regions, and lower refinery throughput. Many of the seasonal factors and temporary outages have now diminished or passed, resulting in significantly higher tanker rates so far in the fourth quarter compared with this past August. We anticipate rates for mid-size tankers will continue to strengthen into the fourth quarter, allowing Teekay Tankers to continue to generate strong cash flow and strengthen its balance sheet."

Mr. Mackay added, "Teekay Tankers recently agreed to sell its last remaining MR product tanker and two older Suezmax tankers for total proceeds of approximately $47.0 million, which, when combined with cash flow generated during the quarter, will further delever our balance sheet to below 49 percent on a net debt to book capitalization basis."

"We have also continued to focus on growing our ship-to-ship lightering business in the U.S. Gulf, and I am pleased to report that we have recently secured two key lightering contracts with major oil companies, strengthening our position in this business and providing us with cargo volumes to employ up to three Aframax tankers per year," Mr. Mackay continued. "Our lightering business benefits from our strong U.S. Gulf presence through our Aframax RSA pool and provides Teekay Tankers with the opportunity to earn above market rates."

Summary of Recent Developments

Sale of Three Conventional Tankers

In October 2016, Teekay Tankers agreed to sell its remaining MR product tanker and two 2002-built Suezmax tankers for aggregate proceeds of approximately $47.0 million. The MR product tanker is expected to be delivered in November 2016 and the two Suezmax tankers are expected to be delivered between late-2016 and early-2017.

Growing Teekay Tankers' Lightering Business

Since August 2016, Teekay Tankers has secured two significant ship-to-ship lightering contracts with major oil companies for up to 24 months commencing in the fourth quarter of 2016. These contracts are expected to utilize up to three Aframax vessel-equivalents at a premium to current spot market rates.

Tanker Market

Crude tanker rates fell to a three-year low in the third quarter of 2016 as normal seasonality was compounded by oil production outages in key Aframax and Suezmax load areas, a shift to shorter-haul trade routes as a result of production outages in the Atlantic, very low refinery throughput, and tanker fleet growth.

Nigerian crude oil production fell to a low of 1.4 million barrels per day (mb/d) during the third quarter of 2016, down from 1.8 mb/d at the start of the year and well below Nigeria's maximum production capacity of 2.2 mb/d. This led to a reduction in cargoes from West Africa, which had a negative impact on the Suezmax market. Furthermore, a shift by Asian buyers from Atlantic oil barrels to more Middle-Eastern oil barrels reduced overall tanker ton-mile demand. Although global oil demand remains robust, refineries have lowered their purchases of crude oil due to high inventory levels, which impacted tanker demand during the third quarter of 2016. Finally, there has been an acceleration in tanker fleet growth in recent months with 18 Suezmax tanker newbuildings delivered since the start of May 2016 versus just two deliveries in the first four months of 2016.

Crude tanker rates have recovered during the early part of the fourth quarter of 2016, in tandem with a recovery in Nigerian oil production as force majeures are lifted, and as refineries have increased purchases of crude oil ahead of the peak winter demand season. In addition, an increase in Libyan crude oil exports upon the reopening of key ports, and the first export cargos from the Kashagan field via Baltic and Black Sea ports, are further supporting mid-size crude tanker demand in the Atlantic basin. With the onset of winter weather conditions and associated vessels delays, crude tanker rates are expected to continue to improve through the winter months.

Looking ahead to 2017, the International Energy Agency (IEA) forecasts global oil demand growth of 1.2 mb/d, which is similar to 2016 levels. In addition, the IEA is forecasting an increase in non-OPEC production during 2017 including higher volumes from Brazil and Kazakhstan, both of which are expected to contribute to increased demand for mid-size tankers. Recovering supply in Nigeria and Libya are also expected to be positive for mid-size tanker demand, although a potential reduction in supply from other parts of OPEC could weigh on crude tanker demand should OPEC decide to introduce production limits at its upcoming meeting on November 30, 2016.

The global tanker fleet grew by approximately 24 million deadweight tons (mdwt), or 4.6 percent, during the first nine months of 2016. The tanker fleet is projected to grow by a further 5 percent in 2017 as the orderbook delivers, which is in line with the historical average. Looking further ahead, a lack of new vessel ordering in 2016-to-date due to restricted access to capital is expected to give rise to much lower fleet growth in 2018. In addition, recent actions by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) on various regulatory agendas could result in increased scrapping of older vessels due to the heavy capital cost requirements necessary to comply with new regulations.

Overall, the Company expects the tanker market to improve over the coming winter months due to normal winter seasonality coupled with the return of Atlantic basin oil production.

  1. The Company acquired two vessels on December 18, 2015 from Teekay Offshore, which is controlled by Teekay Corporation. Results for the two conventional tankers for the periods prior to their acquisitions by the Company when they were owned and operating under the control of Teekay Corporation, are referred to as the Entities under Common Control and periods prior to their acquisitions have been recast to include their results in accordance with Common Control accounting as required under GAAP. The Entities under Common Control amounts included in the financial results are summarized for the respective periods in Appendix A. The amounts related to the Entities under Common Control impact only the accounting for the periods prior to the dates the vessels were acquired by the Company, and therefore have no effect on the adjusted net (loss) income attributable to the shareholders or free cash flow of the Company for any period.
  1. Voyage charter revenues include revenues earned from full service lightering activities. Voyage expenses include certain costs associated with full service lightering activities which include: short-term in-charter expenses, bunker fuel expenses and other port expenses totaling $8.5 million, $6.2 million and $0.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016, June 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015, respectively, and $23.7 million and $0.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
  1. Other revenues include lightering support and LNG services revenue, in-process revenue contracts and the associated 100 percent reimbursement of the Hugli Spirit redundancy cost from a customer. During the three months ended September 30, 2015, the Company incurred $0.3 million of restructuring costs related to the ship-to-ship transfer business. During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company incurred $4.7 million of restructuring charges, of which $4.4 million related to customer-funded redundancy costs in connection with the termination of Australian seafarers of the Hugli Spirit upon the completion of the contract with its customer during the three months ended March 31, 2015.
  1. In October 2016, the Company entered into a Memorandum of Agreement to sell the Hugli Spirit MR product tanker for $13.2 million, resulting in the recognition of an asset impairment of $7.8 million in the three months ended September 30, 2016 as the vessel was written down to its sales price. In June 2016, the Company entered into a Memorandum of Agreement to sell the Teesta Spirit MR product tanker for $14.0 million, resulting in the recognition of an asset impairment of $6.4 million in the three months ended June 30, 2016 as the vessel was written down to its sales price.
  1. Includes realized losses relating to interest rate swaps that relate to amounts actually paid by the Company of $1.2 million, $1.3 million and $2.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016, June 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015, respectively, and $12.1 million and $7.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015, respectively. This is partially offset by realized gains relating to a time-charter swap agreement of $1.1 million and $0.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and June 30, 2016, respectively, and $1.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.
  1. Included in equity income are the Company's proportionate share of earnings from its investment in TIL, which owned 18 conventional tankers as at September 30, 2016, its 50 percent interest in the High-Q joint venture (High-Q), which owns one VLCC tanker, and its 50 percent interest in Teekay Tanker Operations Ltd (TTOL), which owns Teekay Corporation's conventional tanker commercial and technical management operations. The decrease in equity income from the High-Q joint venture for the three months ended September 30, 2016, compared to the prior quarter, is primarily due to a profit share of $1.5 million recognized in the three months ended June 30, 2016.
