Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of EuroDry commented: “During the third quarter of 2020, EuroDry benefited from gradually improving charter markets as a result of the re-opening of most economies after the pandemic-related lockdowns. Since the beginning of October and during early November, the market rates have given up some of the gains, but they remain at satisfactory levels given the increased economic uncertainty due to the second wave of the pandemic and renewed economic lockdowns, especially, in Europe.

Thus, we expect that the drybulk markets will be affected in the near term by the state of the world economies as influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic, and, in the medium term, by the low fleet growth due to historically low orderbook. Consequently, we anticipate that trade developments will be the key factor influencing the rates our vessels will earn.

To better exploit the above market trends, we are focused on reducing our capital costs and creating additional liquidity via selected debt refinancings and repayment of more expensive funding instruments in our balance sheet, and using any excess funds to renew or expand our fleet. We also continue to evaluate opportunities of using our public platform to consolidate other fleets as we believe this can offer significant appreciation potential to our shareholders and flexibility to partners joining our public platform.”

Tasos Aslidis, Chief Financial Officer of EuroDry commented: “Comparing our results for the third quarter of 2020 with the same period of 2019, our net revenues decreased by about $0.9 million, due to the lower time charter equivalent rates our vessels earned as compared to the third quarter of 2019. Operating expenses, including management fees and general and administrative expenses increased by approximately $0.4 million as compared to the third quarter of 2019. This increase is mainly due to increased supply of stores and spare parts for our vessels in 2020 compared to 2019 and increased crewing costs, the latter resulting from difficulties in crew rotation due to COVID-19 related restrictions. Still, we believe that we maintain one of the lowest operating cost structures amongst the public shipping companies which is one of our competitive advantages.

Adjusted EBITDA during the third quarter of 2020 was $2.8 million compared to $2.2 million achieved for the third quarter of last year. Finally, as of September 30, 2020, our outstanding debt (excluding the unamortized loan fees) is about $52.1 million versus restricted and unrestricted cash of about $3.7 million.”
