Seanergy Maritime Holdings Corp. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: SHIP), announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021. 

For the quarter ended June 30, 2021, the Company generated gross revenues of $28.9 million, a 209% increase compared to the second quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $11.3 million, from negative $1.8 million in the same period of 2020. Net income for the second quarter was $2.0 million compared to net loss of $11.3 million in the second quarter of 2020. The daily Time Charter Equivalent (“TCE”) of the fleet for the second quarter of 2021 was $20,095, marking a 270% increase compared $5,424 for the second quarter of 2020.

For the six-month period ended June 30, 2021, gross revenues were $50.0 million, increased by 116% when compared to $23.1 million in same period of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA for the first six months of 2021 was $19.2 million, compared to a negative adjusted EBITDA of $0.5 million in the same period of 2020. The daily TCE of the fleet for the first six months of 2021 was $18,327 compared to $6,985 in the first six months of 2020. The average daily OPEX was $5,766 compared to $5,353 of the respective period of 2020. 

Cash and cash-equivalents, restricted cash and term deposits as of June 30, 2021 stood at $56.4 million. Shareholders’ equity at the end of the second quarter was $199.4 million, vs. $95.7 million in December 31, 2020. Long-term debt (senior and junior loans and financial leases) stood at $203.8 million as of June 30, 2021, from $169.8 million as of the end of 2020. In the same period, following the addition of four of our new acquisitions, the book value of our fleet (including vessels held for sale and advances for vessel acquisitions) increased by 43.3% to $367.9 million from $256.7 million.

Stamatis Tsantanis, the Company’s Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, stated:

“The six-month period that ended on June 30, 2021, marks a significant turning point for Seanergy, with strong financial performance, being the first profitable first-half since the Company’s relaunching in 2015. Most importantly, we have successfully concluded many milestone transactions that saw Seanergy’s fleet growing by more than 60% while solidifying our financial standing.

Concerning our results for the second quarter of 2021, our daily TCE was approximately $20,000, marking an increase of 270% compared to the TCE of the second quarter of 2020. The TCE of the fleet for the first 6 months of 2021 was about $18,300 per day as compared to a daily TCE of approximately $7,000 in the first half of 2020. As discussed in our last earnings release, our TCE performance in the second quarter was affected by certain less favorable conversions of index-linked charters to fixed which were concluded in the fourth quarter of 2020 as part of our freight hedging strategy. However, our Q3 guidance is very strong at close to $29,000 per day. Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter and first half of 2021 was $11.3 million and $19.2 million respectively, as compared to negative adjusted EBITDA by $1.85 million and $0.5 million in the respective periods of 2020. Net result for the quarter was a profit of $2.0 million, which was sufficient to reverse the slight losses of the first quarter of the year resulting in a profitable first half for our Company. 

Regarding our fleet growth and renewal strategy, since the beginning of the year, our investment in our fleet has totaled approximately $160 million, and we have agreed to acquire 6 high-quality Japanese Capesize bulkers of an average age of 10.5 years, with the most recent acquisition being that of the 2009 built M/V Friendship. This vessel will essentially replace the oldest vessel in our fleet, the 2001 built M/V Leadership, which we agreed to sell to third-party buyers. This asset swap is improving the age profile of our fleet and enhances its competitiveness and compliance with the upcoming environmental regulations. To date we have taken delivery of five out of the six new acquisitions and the last vessel, the 2012 built Worldship is scheduled to be delivered to us in August, followed by the delivery of the M/V Leadership to her new owners in September. The total investment capex of about $160 million has been fully funded by our cash reserves, which remain strong following these acquisitions, and newly concluded debt financing arrangements.

On the debt financing front, in the first half of 2021, we have successfully concluded new financings and refinancings of $104.3 million whilst making $69.7 million prepayments and repayments on our legacy debt facilities. The resulting net increase in our debt by $34.6 million, against an increase in the book value of our fleet by $158.9 million, implies a 22% effective loan-to-value on our new acquisitions. Next to the significant deleveraging of the balance sheet, the retirement of expensive debt and its replacement with competitively priced financings reflects positively on our bottom line. Indicatively, the weighted average interest rate on the facilities that were fully prepaid was 8.4% as compared to 3.35% for the new $104.3 million financings. We also expect that the terms of our financings will improve further going forward.

Concerning the commercial deployment of our fleet, in 2021 to date, we have concluded seven new period employment agreements ranging from 12 months to 5 years. All time-charters have been concluded with worldleading charterers in the Capesize sector, including NYK, Cargill, Anglo American and Ssangyong. The underlying rates are mainly index-linked, in most cases with options to convert to fixed based on the prevailing freight futures curve, allowing us to capitalize on potential spikes in the day-rates. Taking advantage of the strong market conditions, we have concluded fixed rate T/Cs at rates exceeding $31,000 per day for periods ranging from 12 to 18 months for two vessels. We continue to position our fleet optimally for what we believe to be an unfolding commodities super-cycle, which will underscore the importance of dry bulk shipping and especially that of the Capesize sector in global seaborne trade.

With respect to the implementation of our ESG agenda and as part of our continuous efforts to improve the energy efficiency rating of our fleet, we have installed Energy Saving Devices (“ESDs”) on an additional vessel and we have agreed with Cargill to install ESDs on another vessel in the coming months. Moreover, we have partnered with DeepSea for the installation of Artificial Intelligence performance systems on our fleet with proven benefit on fuel consumption. Finally we are in progressed discussions with other charterers for similar ESD
projects, as well as for biofuel blend trials, which we believe to be one of the most efficient ways to transition into a greener future for shipping.

Regarding current market conditions, we are very pleased to see a consistent positive trend in our sector with daily rates above $20,000/ day since the beginning of April. Looking ahead, we are entering the seasonally “strong” period for Brazilian iron ore exports as local miners are ramping up production, supported by favorable weather conditions and “clean” plant maintenance schedules. At the same time coal prices are at the highest level of the last decade resulting in steadily rising seaborne coal volumes - a positive trend that defies the
seasonal patterns of the last years. On that basis, and considering the favorable vessel-supply fundamentals of our sector with the orderbook standing at the lowest level of the last 25 years, as amplified by the catalytic effect of the upcoming environmental regulations, we feel confident about the prospects of the Capesize market. As mentioned earlier, our daily TCE for the third quarter, based on 94% of our available days, stands at approximately $29,000, which is 63% higher than our 1H TCE. As part of our forward rates hedging strategy, we have triggered the “floating to fixed” feature on 8 of our index-linked charterers at an average net daily rate of approximately $28,050. This in combination with the solid outlook for our sector will form the basis for what we expect to be a further improved financial performance in the next quarter. On a closing note, we have worked tirelessly and determinedly over the last 18 months to execute consistently on our strategic initiatives and place Seanergy amongst the most prominent Capesize owners globally. We remain committed to delivering additional value for our shareholders.”
