Teekay Tankers Ltd. Reports first Quarter 2018 Results

Highlights

  • Reported GAAP net loss of $19.2 million, or $0.07 per share, and adjusted net loss(1) of $22.0 million, or $0.08 per share, in the first quarter of 2018.
  • Generated GAAP loss from operations of $8.4 million and cash flow from vessel operations(1) of $22.3 million in the first quarter of 2018.

GAAP net loss and non-GAAP adjusted net loss for the first quarter of 2018 compared the first quarter of 2017 were primarily affected by lower average spot tanker rates and the expiry of time-charter out contracts for various vessels which subsequently traded on the spot market at lower rates. GAAP net loss in the first quarter of 2017 included a loss on sale of vessels of two Suezmax tankers and one Aframax tanker.

Compared to the fourth quarter of 2017, GAAP net loss and non-GAAP adjusted net loss for the first quarter of 2018 were affected by the lower average spot tanker rates.

CEO Commentary

“Since reporting our fourth quarter earnings, we have continued to take proactive steps to further strengthen our balance sheet to better position Teekay Tankers during this cyclical low point in the tanker market,” commented Kevin Mackay, Teekay Tankers’ President and Chief Executive Officer. “In April 2018, we signed a term sheet for a sale-leaseback financing transaction relating to seven mid-sized tankers, which is expected to provide approximately $36 million in additional liquidity and extend our debt maturity profile.  In addition, we have decided to eliminate our minimum dividend payment, which will result in retaining approximately $32 million of cash flow annually, but maintain the variable portion of our dividend policy, which will provide investors with the ability to directly participate in a tanker market recovery,” added Mr. Mackay.  “Should the tanker market remain under pressure, we have several options available to continue strengthening our balance sheet, including further sale-leaseback transactions which are currently under discussion.”

“While OPEC supply cuts and an oversupply of tanker tonnage continued to weigh on crude tanker rates during the first quarter of 2018, our fixed charter cover and growing full service lightering business continued to provide strong results during this time of tanker market weakness,” commented Mr. Mackay.  “Looking ahead, while we expect the tanker market to remain under pressure in the near-term, we remain encouraged by the significant increase in tanker scrapping and strong global oil demand forecasted through the rest of this year and into 2019, which in combination with more moderate fleet growth, should lead to a tanker market recovery during the latter part of 2018 and into 2019.”

Summary of Recent Developments

Sale-Leaseback Financing Transaction

In April 2018, Teekay Tankers signed a term sheet for a sale-leaseback financing transaction relating to seven modern conventional tankers, including three Suezmax tankers, two Aframax tankers and two LR2 product tankers. The transaction is structured as 10- to 12-year bareboat charters at an average rate of approximately $7,200 per day with attractive purchase options to the Company for all seven vessels throughout the lease term after year three. Upon expected completion, the sale-leaseback transaction will provide funds to refinance the Company’s only 2018 balloon debt maturity and is expected to increase Teekay Tankers’ liquidity by approximately $36 million.

Secured Two New Time Charter-In Contracts

In the first quarter of 2018, Teekay Tankers secured time charter-in contracts for two Aframax vessels, with an average rate of approximately $11,900 per day, and firm periods of 45 days to six months. One of the contracts includes a 50/50 profit sharing agreement with the option to extend for six months at a higher rate and the other contract has a maximum period of approximately four months and will be used to support the Company’s full service lightering operations.

Tanker Market

OPEC supply cuts and an oversupply of tonnage continued to weigh on crude tanker rates during the first quarter of 2018. A very weak VLCC market due to supply constraint from Middle East OPEC countries and declining output from Venezuela have put downward pressure on the mid-size tanker markets. This has been particularly felt in the Suezmax sector, where VLCCs have been forced into the Atlantic basin to compete with Suezmaxes for West African cargos. Rates were further affected by seasonal refinery maintenance during the first quarter, with global refinery throughput hitting a low of approximately 80 million barrels per day (mb/d) during March 2018.

However, the weak tanker market is driving a significant increase in tanker scrapping. Just over 8 million deadweight tonnes (mdwt) of tankers were scrapped during the first quarter of 2018, which was the highest level of scrapping during any quarter since 1982.  More than 50 percent of the vessels scrapped this year to-date have been less than 20 years of age, which is a sign that low tanker rates, high scrap prices and the potential impact of upcoming regulations have led tanker owners to scrap vessels at a younger age. As a result, the Company has revised its global tanker fleet growth forecast downwards, with a projection of just under 2 percent net fleet growth in 2018 and approximately 3 percent net fleet growth in 2019.

In the near-term, the Company anticipates that ongoing OPEC supply cuts and a backwardated oil market will continue to weigh on crude tanker demand through the summer months. However, global oil demand remains strong, with a forecast of 1.6 mb/d growth in 2018 (average of IEA, EIA and OPEC forecasts). This strong demand, coupled with OPEC cuts, is leading to a rebalancing of oil markets, with OECD oil inventories having reverted back towards 5-year average levels. Inventories are expected to be drawn down further in the coming months, which should support oil prices and encourage a return of OPEC production volumes later in the year. This, combined with a continued increase in U.S. crude exports, is expected to lead to improved crude tanker demand during the latter part of 2018.

In summary, the tanker market remains under pressure due to an imbalance between tanker supply and demand, and this pressure will likely remain in the near-term. However, the Company believes that an inflection point will be reached later in the year due to an increase in tanker demand and more moderate tanker fleet growth, which is expected to lead to a tanker market recovery during the latter part of 2018 and into 2019.

Idle days, which are days when the vessel is available for the vessel to earn revenue yet is not employed, are included in revenue days.

(ii)  Includes vessels trading in the Teekay Suezmax RSA and non-pool voyage charters.

(iii)  Includes vessels trading in the Teekay Aframax RSA, Teekay Aframax Classic RSA, non-pool voyage charters and full service lightering voyages.

(1)  Net revenues is a non-GAAP financial measure. Please refer to “Definitions and Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a definition of this term.

Liquidity Update

As at March 31, 2018, the Company had total liquidity of $100.7 million (comprised of $48.0 million in cash and cash equivalents and $52.7 million in undrawn revolving credit facilities), compared to total liquidity of $160.0 million as at December 31, 2017. The decrease in the Company’s liquidity position during the first quarter of 2018 was primarily due to debt repayments and its quarterly dividend payment. In April 2018, Teekay Tankers signed a term sheet for a sale-leaseback financing transaction, which upon completion, is expected to increase Teekay Tankers’ liquidity by approximately $36.0 million.

Definitions and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes various financial measures that are non-GAAP financial measures as defined under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. These non-GAAP financial measures, which include Adjusted Net (Loss) Income, Free Cash Flow, Net Revenues and Cash Flow from Vessel Operations, are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these measures do not have standardized definitions across companies, and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.  The Company believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s financial performance, as does management.

Consolidated Financial Measures

Adjusted net (loss) income excludes items of income or loss from GAAP net income that are typically excluded by securities analysts in their published estimates of the Company’s financial results. The Company believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s financial performance, as does management. Please refer to Appendix A of this release for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to net (loss) income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Cash flow from vessel operations (CFVO) represents income from operations before depreciation and amortization expense, amortization of in-process revenue contracts, vessel write-downs, and gains or losses on the sale of vessels and equipment.  CFVO – Consolidated represents CFVO from vessels that are consolidated on the Company’s financial statements. CFVO – Equity Investments represents the Company’s proportionate share of CFVO from its equity-accounted vessels and other investments. The Company does not control the equity-accounted vessels and investments, and as a result, the Company does not have the unilateral ability to determine whether the cash generated by its equity accounted vessels and other investments is retained within the entity in which the Company holds the equity accounted investment or distributed to the Company and other owners. In addition, the Company does not control the timing of such distributions to the Company and other owners. Consequently, readers are cautioned when using total CFVO as a liquidity measure as the amount contributed from CFVO – Equity Investments may not be available to the Company in the periods such CFVO is generated by its equity-accounted vessels and other investments.  CFVO is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors and management to measure the operational financial performance of companies.  Please refer to Appendices C of this release for reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to income from vessel operations and income from vessel operations of equity accounted investments, respectively, the most directly comparable GAAP measures reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Free cash flow (FCF) represents net income, plus depreciation and amortization, unrealized losses from derivatives, certain non-cash items, FCF from equity accounted investments, loss on sales of vessels, and any write-offs or other non-recurring items, less unrealized gains from derivatives, equity income from the equity accounted investments, gain on sales of vessels and certain other non-cash items. The Company includes FCF from equity accounted investments as a component of its FCF. FCF from the equity accounted investments represents the Company’s proportionate share of FCF from its equity-accounted investments. The Company does not control its equity-accounted investments, and as a result, the Company does not have the unilateral ability to determine whether the cash generated by its equity-accounted investments is retained within the entity in which the Company holds the equity accounted investment or distributed to the Company and other owners. In addition, the Company does not control the timing of such distributions to the Company and other owners. Consequently, readers are cautioned when using FCF as a liquidity measure as the amount contributed from FCF from the equity accounted investments may not be available to the Company in the periods such free cash flow is generated by the equity accounted investments. FCF is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors and management to evaluate the Company’s financial and operating performance and to assess the Company’s ability to generate cash sufficient to repay debt, pay dividends and undertake capital and dry dock expenditures. Please refer to Appendix B to this release for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to net (loss) income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Entities under common control represent a transfer of a business between entities under common control. As a result, Teekay Tankers consolidated financial statements prior to the date the interests in these entities were actually acquired by the Company are retroactively adjusted to include the results of these entities during the periods they were under common control of Teekay Corporation (Teekay) and had begun operations.

Net revenues represent revenues less voyage expenses. Because the amount of voyage expenses the Company incurs for a particular charter depends upon the type of the charter, the Company uses net revenues to improve the comparability between periods of reported revenues that are generated by the different types of charters and contracts. The Company principally uses net revenues, a non-GAAP financial measure, because the Company believes it provides more meaningful information about the deployment of the Company’s vessels and their performance than does revenues, the most directly comparable financial measure under GAAP.

(1)  Prior to May 31, 2017, the Company owned 50 percent of Teekay Tanker Operations Ltd. (TTOL) and accounted for this investment using the equity method of accounting. The Company acquired the remaining 50 percent of TTOL on May 31, 2017 from Teekay Corporation, resulting in the Company owning 100 percent of TTOL and consolidating its results. Periods prior to May 31, 2017 have been recast to include 100 percent of TTOL’s results on a consolidated basis in accordance with common control accounting as required under GAAP. As a result, the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for periods prior to May 2017 has been retroactively adjusted to include the approximately 13.8 million shares of the Company’s Class B common stock issued to Teekay Corporation as consideration for the acquisition. The impact of this recasting is referred to herein as the “Entities under Common Control” and such amounts are summarized for the respective periods in Appendix A.

(2)  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 $21.4 million, $20.1 million and $20.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018, December 31, 2017 and March 31, 2017, respectively.

(3)  Other revenues include lightering support and liquefied natural gas services revenue, and pool management fee and commission revenues earned from TTOL.

(4)  Commencing January 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update 2014-09 as required under GAAP. The Company previously presented the net allocation for its vessels participating in revenue sharing arrangements as net pool revenues. The Company has determined that it is the principal in voyages its vessels perform that are included in the revenue sharing arrangements. As such, commencing January 1, 2018, revenue from those voyages is presented in voyage charter revenues and the difference between this amount and the Company’s net allocation from the revenue sharing arrangement is presented as voyage expenses. This had the impact of increasing voyage charter revenues and voyage expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2018 by $61.3 million. This change has been adopted prospectively from January 1, 2018.

(5)  Includes realized losses and gains relating to interest rate swaps, a time-charter swap agreement and forward freight agreements entered into by the Company. For the three months ended March 31, 2018, December 31, 2017 and March 31, 2017, the Company recognized a realized gain on its interest rate swaps of $0.2 million, a realized loss of $0.1 million and a realized loss of $0.4 million, respectively. The Company recognized realized gains relating to its time-charter swap agreement of $0.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017. The Company also recognized a realized loss of $77 thousand for the three months ended December 31, 2017 relating to its forward freight agreements.

(6)  Included in equity income are the Company’s 50 percent interest in the High-Q joint venture, which owns one VLCC tanker, its 50 percent interest in Gemini Tankers L.L.C., and its proportionate 11.3 percent share of earnings from its investment in Tanker Investments Ltd. (TIL) until November 27, 2017, when the Company completed a merger with TIL.  From that date, TIL became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, and it has been consolidated.

Components of equity income are detailed in the table below:

(i)  Upon completion of the merger between Teekay Tankers and TIL on November 27, 2017, the Company recognized a gain of $1.4 million in the three months ended December 31, 2017 in relation to the effective disposal of its equity interest in TIL.

This release contains forward-looking statements (as defined in Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) which reflect management’s current views with respect to certain future events and performance, including statements regarding: the completion of the Company’s expected sale-leaseback financing transaction and the effect of the transaction on the Company’s liquidity and future debt maturity profile; crude oil and refined product tanker market fundamentals, including the balance of supply and demand in the tanker market, the occurrence and expected timing of a tanker market recovery, the estimated slowdown of growth in the world tanker fleet, the amount of tanker scrapping and newbuild tanker deliveries, estimated growth in global oil demand and supply, future tanker rates, and future OPEC oil supply; and future dividend payments by the Company under its dividend policy. The following factors are among those that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements, which involve risks and uncertainties, and that should be considered in evaluating any such statement: failure to complete the sale-leaseback financing transaction and/or potential changes to the final terms of the transaction; changes in the production of, or demand for, oil or refined products; changes in trading patterns significantly affecting overall vessel tonnage requirements; greater or less than anticipated levels of tanker newbuilding orders and deliveries and greater or less than anticipated rates of tanker scrapping; changes in global oil prices; changes in applicable industry laws and regulations and the timing of implementation of new laws and regulations; increased costs; changes by the Teekay Tankers’ board of directors to the Company’s dividend policy; and other factors discussed in Teekay Tankers’ filings from time to time with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. The Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect any change in the Company’s expectations with respect thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.
