Teekay Tankers Ltd. Reports Third Quarter 2015 Results

HAMILTON, BERMUDA--(Marketwired - Nov. 5, 2015) -

Highlights

  • Reported third quarter 2015 adjusted net income attributable to shareholders(1) of $40.3 million, or $0.30 per share, compared to $2.6 million, or $0.03 per share, in the same period of the prior year.
  • Generated third quarter 2015 free cash flow(2) of $59.4 million, or $0.44 per share, compared to $16.2 million, or $0.19 per share, in the same period of the prior year.
  • From mid-August through mid-October 2015, took delivery of 12 modern, on-the-water Suezmax tankers acquired from Principal Maritime Tankers for $662 million.
  • In July 2015, acquired a leading global ship-to-ship transfer business, SPT Inc., for a purchase price of $45.5 million.

Teekay Tankers Ltd. (Teekay Tankers or the Company) (NYSE:TNK) today reported adjusted net income attributable to its shareholders (1) of $40.3 million, or $0.30 per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2015, compared to $2.6 million, or $0.03 per share, for the same period in the prior year. The increase is primarily due to stronger spot tanker rates in the third quarter of 2015 compared to the same period in the prior year and an increase in fleet size due to the acquisition of 10 modern Suezmax tankers during the third quarter of 2015, four Long Range 2 (LR2) product tankers and one Aframax tanker in the first quarter of 2015 and the addition of eight in-chartered vessels that delivered to the Company over the past 12 months. Adjusted net income attributable to shareholders excludes a number of specific items that had the net effect of increasing net income attributable to shareholders by $0.9 million, or $0.00 per share, and by $3.3 million, or $0.04 per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, as detailed in Appendix A to this release. Including these items, the Company reported, on a GAAP basis, net income attributable to its shareholders of $41.2 million, or $0.30 per share, and $5.9 million, or $0.07 per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Net revenues(3) were $122.8 million and $50.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

During the third quarter of 2015, the Company generated $59.4 million, or $0.44 per share, of free cash flow(2), compared to $16.2 million, or $0.19 per share, in the third quarter of 2014, with the increase due to higher average spot rates earned and an increase in the size of the Company's fleet. On October 5, 2015, Teekay Tankers declared a dividend of $0.03 per share for the third quarter of 2015, which was paid on October 30, 2015 to all shareholders of record on October 16, 2015. Since the Company's inception, it has declared dividends in 32 consecutive quarters.

CEO Commentary

"Teekay Tankers generated strong free cash flow of $59.4 million, or $0.44 per share, despite the seasonally weaker third quarter", commented Kevin Mackay, Teekay Tankers' Chief Executive Officer. "However, our third quarter results were negatively impacted by a significantly heavier than normal drydocking schedule, which included the repositioning and scheduled drydocking of five of the Principal Maritime Suezmax tankers that delivered during the quarter, as well as the timing difference related to the issuance of new common shares early in the third quarter in connection with our recent acquisitions."

"Since reporting our second quarter results in early-August, the integration of our recent acquisitions, which is now largely complete, has been one of our primary focuses and we expect to begin to see significant commercial and financial benefits starting in the fourth quarter," Mr. Mackay continued. "Teekay is now one of the largest owners of modern Suezmax tankers at the right point in the tanker market cycle when positive fundamentals continue to support strong spot tanker rates. The significant increase in our scale will allow us to further optimize our fleet while enhancing our service offerings to both existing and new customers across more regions. Importantly, the Company has continued to delever its balance sheet with a net debt to book capitalization of 53 percent at the end of the third quarter of 2015, compared to 65 percent one year ago."

"During the fourth quarter to-date, crude spot tanker rates have strengthened and remained firm," Mr. Mackay continued. "We expect crude spot tanker rates to increase further for the remainder of 2015 and into the first quarter of 2016, mainly due to higher expected oil demand related to colder weather in the Northern Hemisphere, the continued building of strategic and commercial petroleum reserves in China and India, and the potential for weather and transit delays that could further support rates. With an expanded fleet, we expect our free cash flow generation will mirror the expected strong rate environment in the fourth quarter of 2015 and into 2016."

Summary of Recent Developments

Suezmax Fleet Deliveries

In early-August 2015, Teekay Tankers agreed to acquire 12 modern Suezmax tankers from Principal Maritime Tankers (Principal Maritime) for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $662 million. The 12 vessels have an average age of 5.5 years, which reduces the average age of Teekay Tankers' fleet by 1.2 years. The Company took delivery of all 12 vessels between mid-August and mid-October 2015 with nine vessels trading in the spot tanker market and the remaining three vessels trading under short-term fixed rate contracts, which expire between December 2015 and February 2016. Eight of the 12 vessels are expected to complete drydockings by early December 2015, which include fuel-efficiency modifications.

Acquisition of Ship-to-Ship Transfer Business

In late-July 2015, Teekay Tankers acquired SPT Inc. (SPT), a joint venture company between Teekay Corporation (Teekay) and I.M. Skaugen SE, for a purchase price of $45.5 million. SPT provides a full suite of ship-to-ship (STS) transfer services in the oil, gas and dry bulk industries. In addition to full service lightering and lightering support, SPT also provides consultancy, terminal management and project development services. This acquisition establishes Teekay Tankers as a global player in the STS transfer business, which is expected to increase the Company's fee-based revenue and its overall fleet utilization. SPT owns and operates a fleet of six STS support vessels and has one chartered-in Aframax tanker, the SPT Explorer.

Tanker Market

While crude tanker spot rates softened in August and September as refineries undertook scheduled seasonal maintenance, they have remained strong relative to historical third quarter average rates. Rates for the third quarter of 2015 were the highest third quarter rates since 2008. The strength in the crude tanker market is due to various factors, including:

  • Positive tanker supply fundamentals, as fleet growth remains below historical averages;
  • Ongoing commercial and strategic stockpiling in both OECD and non-OECD countries due to low oil prices;
  • High refinery throughput, as refiners take advantage of positive margins due to low global oil prices;
  • Increased earnings, as bunker fuel prices remain low due to low global oil prices; and
  • High crude oil supply from OPEC.

Crude tanker rates at the beginning of the fourth quarter have strengthened since the end of the third quarter of 2015. The Company expects that crude tanker rates will remain firm through the remainder of the fourth quarter and into the first quarter of 2016, largely due to the factors highlighted above and the potential for weather and port delays.

Long Range 2 (LR2) tanker rates in 2015 are averaging the highest levels since 2008, supported by record high refinery throughput as well as the full ramping up of new Middle Eastern and Asian refineries, which increased demand for LR2 tankers. However, rates softened towards the end of the third quarter as refinery maintenance coincided with large increases to onshore distillates storage volumes. In the fourth quarter, there is the potential for increased LR2 demand driven by intermittent and localized short-term floating storage requirements as onshore distillate tanks space is increasingly limited.

The global tanker fleet grew by 13.8 million deadweight tonnes (mdwt), or 2.7 percent, in the first nine months of 2015. The global Suezmax fleet grew by nine vessels, or 1.8 percent, while the uncoated Aframax fleet grew by only one vessel, or 0.2 percent. During the same period, the LR2 fleet grew by 25 vessels, or 9.7 percent.

In October 2015, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) reduced its outlook for 2015 global economic growth to 3.1 percent, down 0.2 percent from its July 2015 forecast. This represents a 0.3 percent decrease from global economic growth of 3.4 percent in 2014, according to the IMF. Based on an average of forecasts from the International Energy Agency, the U.S. Energy Information Administration and OPEC, global oil demand is forecast to grow by 1.5 million barrels per day (mb/d) in 2015, and by a further 1.3 mb/d in 2016.

The outlook for crude spot tanker rates is expected to remain firm during the fourth quarter of 2015 and into 2016 based on a combination of low fleet growth and an increase in long-haul tanker demand as more crude oil moves from the Atlantic Basin to the Pacific Basin. In addition, low oil prices are expected to continue to provide support for tanker demand during the fourth quarter of 2015 and into 2016.
