TOP Ships Inc. (the “Company”), an international owner and operator of modern, fuel efficient "ECO" tanker vessels, announced today its unaudited financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company reported:

  • Total revenues of $25.3 million
  • Net Income of $1.7 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $14.3 million*
  • Total Assets of $353.1 million

Evangelos Pistiolis, the President, Chief Executive Officer and Director of the Company, said:

“2021 has been another transformative year for the company. We completed the sale of all our non-scrubber fitted vessels and expanded our Crude Oil Tanker fleet with the delivery of two very high-specification Suezmax vessels, during the first half, and the addition of two very high specification VLCCs and one Suezmax newbuilding tanker, acquired recently, which are expected to be delivered during the first quarter of 2022 from Hyundai Heavy in South Korea, a world-class shipbuilder. All the vessels in our fleet, including our newbuildings, are and will be equipped with engines of modern design with improved Specific Fuel Oil Consumption (SFOC) and in compliance with the latest emission requirements, fitted with energy saving improvements in the hull, propellers, rudder as well as equipment that further reduces the fuel consumption and the emissions certified with an improved Energy Efficiency Design Index (Phase 2 compliance level as minimum). Furthermore, all of our vessels are fitted with ballast water treatment equipment and exhaust gas cleaning systems (scrubbers).

The two Suezmaxes that were delivered to our fleet in March and May 2021 were major contributors to our results for the first half of the year and we expect an even more significant contribution in the results of the second half of the year.”

*Non-US GAAP Measures

This report describes Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA), which is not a measure prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP (i.e., a “Non-US GAAP” measure). We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, other operating loss, operating lease expenses, vessel impairments, gains on sale of vessels and gains/losses on derivative financial instruments.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure that is used as a supplemental financial measure by management and external users of financial statements, such as investors, to assess our financial and operating performance. We believe that this non-U.S. GAAP financial measure assists our management and investors by increasing the comparability of our performance from period to period. This is achieved by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods of interest, gain/loss on financial instruments, taxes, depreciation and amortization, other operating losses, operating lease expenses, gains on sale of vessels and vessel impairments, and which items are affected by various and possibly changing financing methods, capital structure and historical cost basis and which items may significantly affect results of operations between periods and other items that the Company believes are not indicative of the ongoing performance of its core operations.

This Non-U.S. GAAP measure should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. 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 definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be the same as reported by other companies in the shipping industry or other industries. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or cash flow from operations, as determined by U.S. GAAP.
