DIAMOND S SHIPPING INC. REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER 2020 RESULTS
Greenwich, CT, USA, March 12, 2021. Diamond S Shipping Inc. (NYSE: DSSI) (“Diamond S”, or the “Company”), one of the largest publicly listed owners and operators of crude oil and product tankers, today announced results for the fourth quarter of 2020.
Highlights for the Fourth Quarter and Recent Events
-- Reported net loss attributable to Diamond S of $57.8 million, or net loss of $1.45 basic and diluted earnings per share, and Adjusted EBITDA (see Non-GAAP Measures section below) of $8.0 million. The reported net loss includes a loss on vessel sales, related to the sale of the Aias and Amoureux, and a cancelled scrubber installation, which, in aggregate, was $29.6 million. Excluding the loss on vessel sales and the cost of the cancelled scrubber project, the net loss was $28.2 million, or $0.71 per share.
-- Agreed to sell two Suezmax vessels, the Aias and the Amoureux, which were delivered to buyers in January and February 2021 respectively. The sale of the vessels generated approximately $20 million in net proceeds before settlement of working capital.
-- Net debt at December 31, 2020 was $594.4 million, implying a net debt to asset value leverage ratio of approximately 44% based on broker valuations as of December 2020. At quarter end, total free liquidity available to the Company above bank minimum cash requirements was $108.1 million.
Craig H. Stevenson Jr., President and CEO of Diamond S, commented: “Although near-term market conditions will likely remain challenging, the positive long-term market dynamic remains unchanged. In fact, the permanent closures of certain refineries will result in increased tanker demand for product tankers once conditions normalize. Overall tanker demand is expected to gradually increase over the course of 2021 and eventually return to pre-pandemic levels next year as product demand recovers and inventory levels normalize. Diamond S will be well-positioned to create value for our shareholders as the recovery unfolds. Our recent sale of two Suezmax vessels highlights the disconnect between the tangible market value of our fleet and our current market capitalization. These sales also add to our strong liquidity position, reduce our interest expense and are consistent with our historical approach to managing our balance sheet conservatively.”
Fourth Quarter 2020 Results
Reported net loss attributable to Diamond S for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $57.8 million, or net loss of $1.45 basic and diluted earnings per share. Excluding the loss of vessel sales and cancelled scrubber project cost of $29.6 million, the net loss was $28.2 million or $0.71 per share compared to a net income of $26.1 million, or $0.65 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2019. The decrease in net income for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to the fourth quarter of 2019 is primarily related to weaker tanker market conditions driven by the global pandemic.
The Company groups its business primarily by commodity transported and segments its fleet into a 16-vessel crude oil transportation fleet (the “Crude Fleet”) and a 50-vessel refined petroleum product transportation fleet (the “Product Fleet”). The Crude Fleet consists of 15 Suezmax vessels and one Aframax vessel. In December 2020, the Company agreed to sell two Suezmax vessels that were delivered in Q1 2021. The Product Fleet consists of 44 medium range (“MR2”) vessels and 6 Handysize (“MR1”) vessels.
Net revenues for the Company, which represents voyage revenues less voyage expenses, were $58.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to $123.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. Net revenues from the Crude Fleet were $15.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to $55.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. The decrease in net revenues for the Crude Fleet were primarily due to the continued impact of the pandemic on global oil demand. Net revenues from the Product Fleet were $43.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to $67.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. The decrease in net revenues in the Product Fleet were driven by the same factors as the Crude Fleet.
