Danaos' CEO Dr. John Coustas commented:

"We are pleased to report improved adjusted earnings for both the second quarter of 2020 and the first six months of the year. The Company's adjusted net income of $42.5 million for the second quarter of 2020 increased by $8.2 million, or 23.9% when compared to adjusted net income of $34.3 million for the second quarter of 2019. Adjusted EBITDA also improved by $4.5 million, or 6%, to $80.1 million for the second quarter of 2020 compared to $75.6 million for the second quarter of 2019.
 
Although economic activity has been subdued since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, we have seen increasing signs of confidence with liner companies in recent weeks as a number of previously blanked sailings have been reinstated, implying that demand is gradually improving. This has also translated into improving charter rates for vessels greater than 4,000 TEU in size. Recently reported financial results of the liner companies have also been encouraging since, as we had anticipated, prudent capacity management, reduced bunker prices and falling interest rates have more than compensated for the drop in volumes caused by the pandemic.

We are also cautiously optimistic about the medium-term market outlook. The orderbook is currently in single digits as a percentage of the world fleet for the first time in 20 years. Combined with an anticipated reduction in speeds due to the various environmental initiatives, the supply side outlook is healthy. Tighter supply will help to accelerate the recovery in the container market.
 
We continue to execute our strategy and we are well insulated from near-term volatility due to our high charter coverage of 85% in terms of operating revenues and 62% in terms of operating days over the next 12 months. This provides significant visibility into our cash flows during this period. We have now concluded all the scrubber installation investments and took delivery of two 8,500 TEU vessels during the second quarter. Finally, we have ample liquidity and a $1.2 billion charter backlog, which provides us with flexibility to both manage our business and react to growth opportunities that may present themselves. Given continued uncertainty about the duration of the coronavirus pandemic and the ensuing economic recovery, we are focused on maintaining a conservative financial profile and making thoughtful capital allocation decisions that align with our strategy and market expectations.
 
We also remain committed to operational excellence and technological innovation, which allows us to continually deliver a high quality service to our customers. Our commitment has enabled us to maintain our leadership position in the container shipping industry throughout multiple market cycles and during the current challenging environment. We believe that our focus and strategy will ultimately enhance shareholder value far and above the steel value of our fleet."

Three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019

During the three months ended June 30, 2020, Danaos had an average of 57.1 containerships compared to 55.0 containerships during the three months ended June 30, 2019. Our fleet utilization for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was 97.1% compared to 99.4% for the three months ended June 30, 2019.

Our adjusted net income amounted to $42.5 million, or $1.71 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to $34.3 million, or $2.24 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2019. We have adjusted our net income in the three months ended June 30, 2020 for amortization of non-cash fees and accrued finance fees charge of $4.0 million. Please refer to the Adjusted Net Income reconciliation table, which appears later in this earnings release.

The increase of $8.2 million in adjusted net income for the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019 is attributable mainly to a $5.8 million decrease in net finance expenses, a $4.5 million increase in operating revenues and a $1.7 million increase in the operating performance of our equity investment in Gemini Shipholdings Corporation ("Gemini"), which were partially offset by a $3.8 million increase in total operating expenses.

On a non-adjusted basis, our net income amounted to $38.5 million, or $1.55 earnings per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to net income of $30.1 million, or $1.97 earnings per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2019.

Operating Revenues
Operating revenues increased by 4.0%, or $4.5 million, to $116.8 million in the three months ended June 30, 2020 from $112.3 million in the three months ended June 30, 2019.

Operating revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2020 reflect:

  • a $9.6 million increase in revenues in the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019 as a result of contractual increases in charter rates of vessels under long-term charters;
  • a $3.6 million increase in revenues in the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019 due to the acquisition of new vessels;
  • a $5.3 million decrease in revenues in the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019 due to lower non-cash revenue recognition in accordance with US GAAP;
  • a $2.5 million decrease in revenues in the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019 as a result of lower re-chartering rates for certain of our vessels. This decrease is due to a $4.1 million decrease in revenues due to the re-chartering of four vessels in our fleet that concluded long-term charters over the last twelve months and were re-deployed at the prevailing lower spot rates in the three months ended June 30, 2020, partially offset by a $1.7 million improvement from the re-chartering of other vessels in the fleet; and
  • a $0.9 million decrease in revenues due to lower fleet utilization of our vessels in the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019.

Vessel Operating Expenses
Vessel operating expenses increased by $1.3 million to $28.6 million in the three months ended June 30, 2020 from $27.3 million in the three months ended June 30, 2019, primarily as a result of the increase in the average number of vessels in our fleet, partially offset by an overall decrease in the average daily operating cost to $5,787 per vessel per day for vessels on time charter for the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to $5,884 per vessel per day for the three months ended June 30, 2019.

Depreciation expense increased by 5.4%, or $1.3 million, to $25.3 million in the three months ended June 30, 2020 from $24.0 million in the three months ended June 30, 2019 mainly due to the installation of scrubbers on nine of our vessels and the acquisition of the vessels Niledutch Lion, Phoebe and SM Charleston in the six months ended June 30, 2020.

Interest expense decreased by 27.7%, or $5.2 million, to $13.6 million in the three months ended June 30, 2020 from $18.8 million in the three months ended June 30, 2019. The decrease in interest expense is attributable to:

  • a $5.1 million decrease in interest expense due to a decrease in debt service cost of approximately 1.56% and a $95.8 million decrease in our average debt (including leaseback obligations), to $1,534.9 million in the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared to $1,630.7 million in the three months ended June 30, 2019; and

Equity income/(loss) on investments increased by $1.7 million to $1.7 million of income on investments in the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to nil in the three months ended June 30, 2019 due to the improved operating performance of Gemini, in which the Company has a 49% shareholding interest.

As outlined above, the increase is mainly attributable to a $4.5 million increase in operating revenues, a $1.7 million increase in the operating performance of our equity investees and a $0.7 million decrease in other finance expenses, which were partially offset by a $2.4 million increase in operating expenses. Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2020 is adjusted for stock based compensation of $0.3 million.

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures used in managing the business may provide users of this financial information additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures can provide additional meaningful reflection of underlying trends of the business because they provide a comparison of historical information that excludes certain items that impact the overall comparability. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating the Company's performance. See the Table above for supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

1)

Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before interest income and expense, depreciation, amortization of deferred drydocking & special survey costs, amortization of deferred finance costs, debt discount and other finance fees accrued, amortization of deferred realized losses on interest rate swaps and stock based compensation. However, Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or "GAAP." We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. We also believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry because the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA generally eliminates the effects of financings, income taxes and the accounting effects of capital expenditures and acquisitions, items which may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, 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. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.




Note: Items to consider for comparability include gains and charges. Gains positively impacting net income are reflected as deductions to net income. Charges negatively impacting net income are reflected as increases to net income.




The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).
