Earnings Highlights and Summary

For Q4 2017, Gener8 Maritime's net voyage revenues, which are voyage revenues minus voyage expenses, decreased by 43.4% to $56.4 million compared to $99.6 million for Q4 2016. The decline in net voyage revenues was primarily due to the drop in the Company's average daily fleet Time Charter Equivalent (TCE) rate by $7,086, or 25.1%, to $21,104 for the reported quarter compared to $28,190 for the prior year's same period.

The decline was primarily due to the drop-in crew costs of $3.4 million, or 22%, and the decrease in insurance expense of $0.6 million, or 15%, versus the prior year's comparable period.

For Q4 2017, Gener8 Maritime's general and administrative (G&A) expenses increased 57.1% to $8.8 million compared to $5.6 million in Q4 2016, primarily due to an increase of $1.9 million in professional and legal fees on a y-o-y basis.
