Okeanis Reports Q3, 9M Unaudited Interim Condensed Results

Okeanis Eco Tankers reported unaudited interim condensed results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021.


• Time charter equivalent (“TCE”, a non-IFRS measure) revenue and Adjusted EBITDA (a non-IFRS measure) of $24.1 million and $11.3 million, respectively. Adjusted loss and Adjusted EPS (non-IFRS measures) for the period of $4.5 million or $0.14 per basic & diluted share.

• Fleetwide daily TCE rate of $19,100 per operating day; VLCC, Suezmax and Aframax/LR2 TCE rates of $22,400, $15,300 and $15,800 per operating day, respectively.

• Daily vessel operating expenses (“opex”, a non-IFRS measure) of $8,807 per calendar day, including management fees.

• In Q4 2021 to date, 84% of the available VLCC spot days have been booked at an average TCE rate of $17,700 per day, 73% of the available Suezmax spot days have been booked at an average TCE rate of $17,600 per day.

• In August 2021, the Company delivered the Nissos Heraclea to her new owners.

• In September 2021, the Company paid the amount of $17.4 million to Mr. Ioannis Alafouzos (the “Sponsor”) in connection with the acquisition of the two scrubber-fitted 300,000 DWT VLCC crude tankers (the “Resale VLCCs”) from entities controlled by the Sponsor, as per the signed MOAs on June 29, 2021. The vessels are scheduled for delivery in March and May 2022.


• In October and November 2021, the Company delivered its vessels, the Nissos Santorini and Nissos Antiparos, to their new owner for a total consideration of $180 million.

• In November 2021, M/T Milos performed its five-year anniversary special survey. Also, M/T Poliegos was docked earlier than scheduled in order to benefit from increased spot freight rates of 2022.

• The Board of Directors has declared a return of capital of $15.0 million to shareholders. $10.0 million will be distributed in the form of a cash payment of $0.31 per share, while the remaining $5.0 million will be in the form of share repurchases conducted in the market. The cash payment will be recorded as a return paid-in-capital, which is a non-taxable event, and the share repurchase will be recorded as treasury shares. Inclusive of the $24.3 million cash distribution made in June, total distributions to shareholders from asset sales in 2021 will amount to $39.3 million. This compares with net proceeds from asset sales of $67.6 million after the payment of the equity portion of the 2 new VLCCs. Rather than distribute the total net proceeds as originally contemplated, the Board of Directors has for the time being determined to retain approximately $28.3 million as cash on the balance sheet.

While the intent was to distribute the total net proceeds from asset sales, the Company recognizes that crude tanker markets have not developed as anticipated and that bolstering liquidity by way of reducing net debt is the most prudent approach to address the current market conditions. The Board of Directors and Management own 71% of the total shares outstanding, remain steadfast in their commitment to maximize shareholder value and look forward to returning capital to shareholders when market conditions permit.
