STEALTHGAS INC. REPORTS THIRD QUARTER 2018 FINANCIAL AND OPERATING RESULTS

ATHENS, GREECE, November 23, 2018. STEALTHGAS INC. (NASDAQ: GASS), a ship-owning company primarily serving the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) sector of the international shipping industry, announced today its unaudited financial and operating results for the third quarter and nine months results ended September 30, 2018.

OPERATIONAL AND FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Operational utilization of 96.1% in Q3 18’ (95.4% in Q3 17’) in spite of weak seasonal period combined with an unexpected slowdown of the Asian LPG market.
  • Almost 15% reduction of commercial off hire days in Q3 18’ compared to Q3 17’.
  • About 84% of fleet days secured on period charters for the remainder of 2018 and 59% for 2019, with approximately $151 million in contracted revenues for all subsequent periods.
  • Revenues of $42.7 million in Q3 18’, an increase of $4.2 million compared to Q3 17’.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $16.4 million in Q3 18’, compared to $15.3 million in Q3 17’.
  • Low gearing, as debt to assets stands at 42.9% in spite of our capital expansion while net debt to assets ratio is as low as 36.8%.
  • Cash and cash equivalents of $64.8 million an increase of $13.0 million compared to year end 2017.

Third Quarter 2018 Results:

  • Revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2018 amounted to $42.7 million, an increase of $4.2 million, or 10.9%, compared to revenues of $38.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, mainly as a result of improved market rates that led to an increase of both our time charter revenues and spot revenues compared to the same period of last year.
  • Voyage expenses and vessels’ operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 were $5.8 million and $15.6 million respectively, compared to $3.7 million and $15.1 million respectively, for the three months ended September 30, 2017.The $2.1 million increase in voyage expenses was attributed to a quarter on quarter increase of spot days by 25.0% and a 44.6% rise in oil prices which affected the levels of our bunker costs. The 3.3% increase in vessels’ operating expenses compared to the same period of 2017, in spite of the net reduction in the average number of our owned vessels by two, was mostly due to the operation of the three new large LPG semi refrigerated vessels that were not in our fleet in the same period of last year and increased maintenance and repairs costs faced this quarter for three of our small LPG vessels.
  • Charter hire expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 were $1.8 million and $0.9 million, respectively. The $0.9 million increase in charter hire expenses was mainly due to the addition of one chartered in vessel in the first quarter of 2018.
  • Drydocking costs for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 were $0.8 million and $0.6 million, respectively. The costs for the third quarter of 2018 corresponded to the drydocking of two LPG vessels, while in the same period of 2017 the Company completed the drydocking of one LPG vessel.
  • Depreciation for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $10.1 million, a $0.3 million increase from $9.8 million for the same period of last year mostly due to the addition of the three new 22,000 cbm semi-refrigerated LPG vessels.
  • Included in the third quarter 2018 results were net gain from interest rate derivative instruments of $0.02 million compared to a net loss of $0.08 million incurred in the same period of last year. Interest received from interest rate derivative instruments amounted to $0.02 million compared to interest of $0.08 million paid in the same period of last year. The net gain from interest rate derivative instruments and the reduction of interest paid on derivatives, are an outcome of the increase in LIBOR rates.
  • The Company realized a $0.5 million loss on sale of three vessels in the three months ended September 30, 2018.
  • The Company recorded an impairment loss of $0.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 for three of its vessels which have been classified as held for sale. For the three months ended September 30, 2017, the Company had recorded an impairment loss of $3.2 million for four of its oldest vessels, two of which have been classified as held for sale.
  • Interest and finance costs for the three months ended September 30, 2018 were $6.1 million compared to $4.4 million in the same period of 2017. This increase of $1.7 million is attributed both to the increase in our bank debt and also to an increase of LIBOR rates.
  • As a result of the above, for the three months ended September 30, 2018, the Company reported a net loss of $0.8 million, compared to a net loss of $2.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The weighted average number of shares for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was 39.9 million compared to 39.8 million for the same period of 2017. Loss per share, basic and diluted, for the three months ended September 30, 2018 amounted to $0.02 compared to loss per share of $0.06 for the same period of last year.
  • Adjusted net income was $0.3 million or $0.01 earnings per share for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to adjusted net income of $1.1 million or $0.03 earnings per share for the same period of last year.
  • EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2018 amounted to $15.3 million. Reconciliations of Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to Net Loss are set forth below.
  • An average of 51.3 vessels were owned by the Company during the three months ended September 30, 2018, compared to 52.9 vessels for the same period of 2017.

Nine Months 2018 Results:

  • Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, amounted to $125.8 million, an increase of $9.9 million, or 8.5%, compared to revenues of $115.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, primarily due to improved market conditions.
  • Voyage expenses and vessels’ operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 were $15.7 million and $45.8 million, respectively, compared to $11.8 million and $44.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The $3.9 million increase in voyage expenses was mainly due to the higher bunker prices prevailing in the nine months of 2018 compared to the same period of 2017. The $1.4 million increase in vessels’ operating expenses, in spite of the net reduction of the average number of our owned vessels by one , was mainly driven by the operation of three additional new 22,000 cbm semi-refrigerated LPG vessels not yet delivered in the same period of last year.
  • Charter hire expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 were $4.4 million and $2.6 million, respectively. The $1.8 million increase in charter hire expenses was mainly due to the addition of one chartered in vessel in the first quarter of 2018.
  • Drydocking Costs for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 were $3.0 million and $2.5 million, respectively, representing the costs of 6 and 5 vessels drydocked, in each respective period.
  • Depreciation for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, was $31.1 million, a $1.8 million increase from $29.3 million for the same period of last year, in spite of the net reduction of the average number of our owned vessels by one, due to the addition of three 22,000 cbm semi-refrigerated vessels.
  • Included in the nine months of 2018 results were net loss from interest rate derivative instruments of $0.02 million compared to a net loss of $0.3 million incurred in the same period of last year. Interest paid on interest rate swap arrangements amounted to $0.06 million compared to interest of $0.3 million paid in the same period of last year. The reduction of net losses from interest rate derivative instruments, including the reduction of interest paid on derivatives, are an outcome of the increase in LIBOR rates.
  • The Company recorded an impairment loss of $8.2 million in the nine months of 2018 for seven of its vessels, three of which have been classified as held for sale as of September 30, 2018. With regards to the additional four vessels for which we incurred impairment charges, one was delivered to her new owners in the second quarter of 2018 while the remaining three were delivered to their new owners in the third quarter of 2018.
  • Interest and finance costs for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 were $17.3 million compared to $12.2 million in the same period of 2017. This increase of $5.1 million is attributed to the increase in our bank debt and to an increase of LIBOR rates.
  • As a result of the above, the Company reported a net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 of $7.0 million, compared to a net loss of $2.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The average number of shares outstanding as of September 30, 2018 was 39.9 million compared to 39.8 million, for the same period of last year. Loss per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 amounted to $0.17 compared to loss per share of $0.05 for the same period of last year.
  • Adjusted net income was $1.9 million, or $0.05 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to adjusted net income of $4.7 million, or $0.12 per share, for the same period of last year.
  • EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 amounted to $41.0 million. Reconciliations of Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income are set forth below. An average of 51.8 vessels were owned by the Company during the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to 53.1 vessels for the same period of 2017.
  • As of September 30, 2018, cash and cash equivalents amounted to $64.8 million and total debt amounted to $454.7 million. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018 debt repayments amounted to $45.2 million.

Board Chairman Michael Jolliffe Commented

A temporary slowdown of the Asian LPG market was the main driver of our third quarter’s performance. The third quarter of the year usually has a soft element due to seasonal factors but in addition this quarter market conditions in Asia were less favorable than usual as we witnessed some charterers not renewing time charter vessels in direct continuation thus leaving more than usual vessels to operate in the spot market. This impacted our revenues. The market in Asia has now corrected itself and time charter fixing has picked up, as is evident from the eleven new time charters we have concluded since our last earnings report.

The most important aspect of our segment, however, is that the fundamentals, that is increasing LPG production and consumption, a very low orderbook, and an ageing global fleet, continue to drive our market. We feel optimistic for the couple of years ahead as rates are in our opinion likely to increase even further.

StealthGas as the largest owner in the sector with a relatively young fleet is well positioned to seize this opportunity. We have concluded our fleet expansion program, enhanced our cash base, have agreed to sell seven mostly older vessels since the beginning of 2018 and are therefore ready to create value from our market’s significant potential upside.

1) Average number of vessels is the number of owned vessels that constituted our fleet for the relevant period, as measured by the sum of the number of days each vessel was a part of our fleet during the period divided by the number of calendar days in that period.

2) Total calendar days for fleet are the total days the vessels we operated were in our possession for the relevant period including off-hire days associated with major repairs, drydockings or special or intermediate surveys.

3) Total voyage days for fleet reflect the total days the vessels we operated were in our possession for the relevant period net of off-hire days associated with major repairs, drydockings or special or intermediate surveys.

4) Fleet utilization is the percentage of time that our vessels were available for revenue generating voyage days, and is determined by dividing voyage days by fleet calendar days for the relevant period.

5) Total charter days for fleet are the number of voyage days the vessels operated on time or bareboat charters for the relevant period.

6) Total spot market charter days for fleet are the number of voyage days the vessels operated on spot market charters for the relevant period.

7) Fleet operational utilization is the percentage of time that our vessels generated revenue, and is determined by dividing voyage days excluding commercially idle days, by fleet calendar days for the relevant period.

Reconciliation of Adjusted Net (Loss)/Income, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS:

Adjusted net income represents net (loss) before loss/(gain) on derivatives excluding net swap interest paid, share based compensation, loss on sale of vessels and impairment. EBITDA represents net (loss) before interest and finance costs, interest income and depreciation. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA before share based compensation, loss/(gain) on derivatives, loss on sale of vessels and impairment loss. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted EPS are not recognized measurements under U.S. GAAP. Our calculation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted EPS may not be comparable to that reported by other companies in the shipping or other industries.  In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation.

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted EPS are included herein because they are a basis, upon which we assess our financial performance. They allow us to present our performance from period to period on a comparable basis and provide additional information on fleet operational results to investors.

*We adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board's ("FASB") Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2014-09, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers" ("ASU 2014-09" or "ASC 606") as of January 1, 2018 utilizing the modified retrospective method of transition. As such, the comparative information has not been restated and continues to be reported under the accounting standards in effect for periods prior to January 1, 2018. Under the modified retrospective approach, the Company recognized the cumulative effect of adopting this standard as an adjustment amounting to $0.3 million to decrease the opening balance of Retained Earnings as of January 1, 2018 which consists of $0.6 million of voyage revenue representing performance obligations satisfied in 2018 partly offset by $0.3 million of deferred costs representing costs such as bunker expenses and port expenses, incurred prior to commencement of loading that were recognized in 2018.
