Global Ship Lease Reports Results for the Fourth Quarter of 2013

LONDON, Feb. 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Ship Lease, Inc. (NYSE:GSL), a containership charter owner, announced today its unaudited results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013.

Fourth Quarter and Year To Date Highlights

- Reported revenue of $36.1 million for the fourth quarter 2013. Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $143.2 million

- Reported net income of $7.9 million for the fourth quarter 2013, including a $2.5 million non-cash interest rate derivative mark-to-market gain. For the year ended December 31, 2013, net income was $32.5 million, after a $14.3 million non-cash mark-to-market gain

- Generated $22.9 million of Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the fourth quarter 2013. Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $91.5 million

- Excluding the non-cash mark-to-market items, normalized net income(1) was $5.4 million for the fourth quarter 2013 and $18.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2013

- Repaid $17.9 million of debt during the fourth quarter 2013 for a total repayment of $232.8 million since the fourth quarter 2009

- Agreed with lenders to extend the existing loan-to-value waiver until May 1, 2015

Ian Webber, Chief Executive Officer of Global Ship Lease, stated, "In the fourth quarter of 2013, we once again benefitted from our strong contract coverage, which resulted in fleet utilization of more than 99% and Adjusted EBITDA of $22.9 million. Our stable cashflow generation enabled us to further de-lever our balance sheet during the fourth quarter, repaying debt in the amount of $17.9 million. For the full year 2013, fleet utilization was also in excess of 99%, generating Adjusted EBITDA of $91.5 million and resulting in debt repayment of $59.3 million for the year and a total debt repayment of $232.8 million since the fourth quarter of 2009. The ratio of net secured debt to 2013 Adjusted EBITDA is now 3.7 times."

Mr. Webber continued, "We enter 2014 well positioned to continue to benefit from our strong contracted revenue stream and remain insulated from asset value volatility as a result of our recent loan-to-value waiver extension. As our strong, predictable cashflows allow us to continue strengthening our balance sheet through additional debt repayment, we remain committed to a refinancing on favorable terms to increase our financial and strategic flexibility and enhance shareholder value."

Revenue and Utilization

The 17 vessel fleet generated revenue from fixed rate long-term time charters of $36.1 million in the three months ended December 31, 2013, down $0.1 million on revenue of $36.2 million for the comparative period in 2012 due mainly to reduced revenue for two vessels following charter renewals in second quarter 2013 at lower rates, offset by less offhire from reduced levels of planned drydocking.  There were 1,564 ownership days in the quarter, the same as the comparable period in 2012.  There was only one day unplanned offhire in the three months ended December 31, 2013, giving utilization of 99.9%.  In the comparable period of 2012, there were 16 days offhire, of which 10 were for planned drydockings, for utilization of 99.0%.

For the year ended December 31, 2013, revenue was $143.2 million, down $10.0 million on revenue of $153.2 million in the comparative period, mainly due to lower revenue from charter renewals and 17 fewer ownership days as 2012 was a leap year, offset by 70 days less offhire, mainly from reduced levels of planned drydockings.

The table below shows fleet utilization for the three months and years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 and for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2010 and 2009.

Two vessels were drydocked in 2013, both in the first quarter. One further vessel underwent its first special survey, in the fourth quarter, whilst afloat including an underwater inspection in lieu of a drydocking and as a result, the next scheduled inspection in a drydock for regulatory purposes is postponed to November 2016.  Two drydockings for regulatory purposes are scheduled for 2014 and none for 2015.

Vessel Operating Expenses

Vessel operating expenses, which include costs of crew, lubricating oil, spares and insurance, were $11.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013. The average cost per ownership day in the quarter was $7,511, up $148 per day or 2.0% on $7,363 for the comparative period, with increased costs for repairs and maintenance offset by lower crew and lubricating oil costs.

For the year ended December 31, 2013, vessel operating expenses were $46.0 million, or an average of $7,421 per day, compared to $45.6 million in the comparative period, or $7,327 per day.  The increase of $94 per day, or 1.3%, is mainly due to increased costs for crew and repairs.

Depreciation

Depreciation for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was $10.1 million, the same as for the comparative period.

Depreciation for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $40.4 million, up $0.1 million on the comparative period.

General and Administrative Costs

General and administrative costs were $1.5 million in the three months ended December 31, 2013, the same as in the fourth quarter of 2012.

For the year ended December 31, 2013, general and administrative costs were $6.0 million, compared to $5.8 million for 2012.

Other Operating Income

Other operating income in the three months ended December 31, 2013 was $0.1 million, the same as for the fourth quarter 2012.

For the year ended December 31, 2013, other operating income was $0.4 million, compared to $0.3 million for the year to December 31, 2012. 

Adjusted EBITDA

As a result of the above, Adjusted EBITDA was $22.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, down from $23.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $91.5 million, compared to $102.2 million for the comparative period.

Interest Expense

Interest expense, excluding the effect of interest rate derivatives which do not qualify for hedge accounting, for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was $4.5 million.  The Company's borrowings under its credit facility averaged $384.3 million during the three months ended December 31, 2013.  There were $45.0 million of mandatorily redeemable preferred shares throughout the period, giving total average borrowings through the three months ended December 31, 2013 of $429.3 million.  Interest expense in the comparative period in 2012 was $5.1 million on average borrowings, including the preferred shares, of $481.7 million.

For the year ended December 31, 2013, interest expense, excluding the effect of interest rate derivatives which do not qualify for hedge accounting, was $18.8 million. The Company's borrowings under its credit facility and including the $45.0 million preferred shares, averaged $450.1 million during the year ended December 31, 2013.  Interest expense for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $21.2 million based on average borrowings in that period, including the preferred shares, of $509.6 million.

Interest income for the three months and years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 was not material.

Effect of Interest Rate Derivatives

The Company hedges its interest rate exposure by entering into derivatives that swap floating rate debt for fixed rate debt to provide long-term stability and predictability to cash flows.  The Company's derivative hedging instruments gave a realized loss of $2.9 million in the three months ended December 31, 2013 for settlement of swaps in the period, as current LIBOR rates are lower than the average fixed rates. This loss is $1.8 million lower than the $4.7 million in the three months ended December 31, 2012, as $253 million of derivatives expired in March 2013. A further $50 million of derivatives expired on November 29, 2013. As these hedges do not qualify for hedge accounting under US GAAP, the outstanding hedges are marked to market at each period end with any change in the fair value being booked to the income and expenditure account as an unrealized gain or loss.  There was a $2.5 million unrealized gain in the three months ended December 31, 2013 for revaluation of the balance sheet position given current LIBOR and movements in the forward curve for interest rates.  This compares to an unrealized gain of $4.7 million in the three months ended December 31, 2012. 

For the year ended December 31, 2013, the realized loss from hedges was $14.0 million and the unrealized gain was $14.3 million. This compares to a realized loss of $18.4 million and an unrealized gain of $9.7 million in the year ended December 31, 2012.

At December 31, 2013, interest rate derivatives totaled $277.0 million against floating rate debt of $411.3 million, including the preferred shares.  The total mark-to-market unrealized loss recognized as a liability on the balance sheet at December 31, 2013 was $21.3 million.

Unrealized mark-to-market adjustments have no impact on operating performance or cash generation in the period reported.

Taxation

Taxation for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was $34,000, compared to $38,000 in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Taxation for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $97,000, compared to $128,000 for the comparative period in 2012. 

Net Income

Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was $7.9 million after $2.5 million non-cash interest rate derivative mark-to-market gain.  For the three months ended December 31, 2012, net income was $8.1 million after the $4.7 million non-cash interest rate derivative mark-to-market gain. Normalized net income, which excludes the effect of the non-cash interest rate derivative mark-to-market gains and losses, was $5.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and $3.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012. 

Net income was $32.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2013 after a $14.3 million non-cash interest rate derivative mark-to-market gain.  For the year ended December 31, 2012, net income was $31.9 million after a $9.7 million non-cash interest rate derivative mark-to-market gain. Normalized net income was $18.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2013 and $22.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2012. 

Credit Facility

The container shipping industry has been experiencing a significant cyclical downturn.  As a consequence, there has been a continued decline in charter free market values of containerships since mid-2012.  While the Company's stable business model largely insulates it from volatility in the freight and charter markets, a covenant in the credit facility with respect to the Leverage Ratio, which is the ratio of outstanding drawings under the credit facility and the aggregate charter free market value of the secured vessels, causes the Company to be sensitive to significant declines in vessel values. Under the terms of the credit facility, the Leverage Ratio cannot exceed 75%. The Leverage Ratio has little impact on the Company's operating performance, as cash flows are largely predictable under its business model.

In anticipation of the scheduled test of the Leverage Ratio as at November 30, 2012, when the Company expected that the Leverage Ratio would be between 75% and 90%, the Company agreed with its lenders to waive the requirement to perform the Leverage Ratio test until December 1, 2014. Under the terms of the waiver, the fixed interest margin to be paid over LIBOR increased to 3.75%, prepayments became based on cash flow rather than a fixed amount of $10 million per quarter, and dividends on common shares cannot be paid. On February 10, 2014 this waiver was extended, on the same terms, such that the next scheduled test is May 1, 2015.

In the three months ended December 31, 2013, a total of $17.9 million of debt was repaid, leaving a balance outstanding of $366.4 million.

Dividend

Global Ship Lease is not currently able to pay a dividend on common shares under the terms of the credit facility waiver.

About Global Ship Lease

Global Ship Lease is a containership charter owner. Incorporated in the Marshall Islands, Global Ship Lease commenced operations in December 2007 with a business of owning and chartering out containerships under long-term, fixed rate charters to top tier container liner companies. Global Ship Lease owns 17 vessels with a total capacity of 66,349 TEU with an average age, weighted by TEU capacity, at December 31, 2013 of 9.8 years.  All of the current vessels are fixed on charters to CMA CGM with an average remaining term of 6.5 years on a weighted basis, or 7.3 years excluding the two spot vessels.

Reconciliation of Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures

A. Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA represents Net income (loss) before interest income and expense including amortization of deferred finance costs, realized and unrealized gain (loss) on derivatives, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and impairment charges. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-US GAAP quantitative measure used to assist in the assessment of the Company's ability to generate cash from its operations.  We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Adjusted EBITDA is not defined in US GAAP and should not be considered to be an alternate to Net income (loss) or any other financial metric required by such accounting principles.

B. Normalized net income

Normalized net income represents Net income (loss) adjusted for the unrealized gain (loss) on derivatives, the accelerated write off of a portion of deferred financing costs and impairment charges. Normalized net income is a non-GAAP quantitative measure which we believe will assist investors and analysts who often adjust reported net income for non-operating items such as change in fair value of derivatives to eliminate the effect of non cash non-operating items that do not affect operating performance or cash generated.  Normalized net income is not defined in US GAAP and should not be considered to be an alternate to Net income (loss) or any other financial metric required by such accounting principles.
