Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. Reports Record Financial Results for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2021
NEWPORT, RI - November 9, 2021 - Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. (“Pangaea” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: PANL), a global provider of comprehensive maritime logistics solutions, announced today its results for the three months ended September 30, 2021.
3rd Quarter Highlights

Net income attributable to Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. was $27.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $7.6 million for the same period of 2020.
Non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. was $21.7 million, as compared to non-GAAP adjusted net income of $8.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020.
Diluted net income per share was $0.60 for the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to a diluted net income per share of $0.17 for the same period of 2020.
Pangaea's TCE rates were $28,770 per day for the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $13,316 per day for the three months ended September 30, 2020.
Adjusted EBITDA was $33.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $15.4 million for the same period of 2020.
At the end of the quarter, Pangaea had $49.2 million in cash and cash equivalents.
On November 8, 2021, the Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.035 per common share, to be paid on December 15, 2021, to all shareholders of record as of December 1, 2021.

Subsequent Business Update

On November 5, 2021 the Company entered into a memorandum of agreement to purchase a 2009 built Panamax vessel to add to its operating fleet for $19.9 million which is expected to deliver during the first quarter of 2022.

Mark Filanowski, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Pangaea Logistics Solutions, commented:

“Our third quarter and year-to-date results set a record for us. The summer surge in rates worked in our favor, with our new vessels adding to our operating profits as we generated adjusted EBITDA of $33.6 million for the quarter and net income of $27 million. In addition to our three shuttle vessels moving bauxite from Jamaica to the Mississippi River, we also had eight ice classed vessels in the Arctic trade for most of the quarter. Two post Panamax vessels are still making their way over the Northern Sea Route to China. We are still able to participate in market volatility with spot ship days, which helped us to achieve average time charter equivalent earnings of $28,770 per day for the quarter ended September 30, 2021. Forward freight agreements, purchased to protect long cargo positions, added $5.3 million of unrealized gains to net income for the quarter, which we continue to monitor as the futures markets began a sell-off in recent weeks."

"In the past nine months, we have added six vessels to our fleet, including three newbuilding 95,000 dwt ice class 1A vessels, with one more newbuilding scheduled to be delivered in late November. We are also pleased to announce today the acquisition of a 2009 built Panamax vessel to support our core contract business, expected to deliver in the first quarter of next year. Over the past two years, we have renewed our owned fleet and decreased the average age by 25%, to less than nine years."

“We are encouraged by the steps we have taken and the fundamentals of the dry bulk market. We continue to serve our long-term customers with excellent service, as they are the backbone of our strategy. All of our people have contributed to our results, commercially and technically managing an average of over 55 or more vessels per day, taking delivery of our new vessels, and placing very competitive and creative financing. I especially thank our hard-working crews aboard our ships. We will continue to be opportunistic and are well positioned to face whatever market is around the corner.”

Results for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020
Total revenue was $213.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared with $103.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The 105% increase in revenues was mainly attributed to the increase in the average TCE rates achieved by our vessels during the third quarter of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020.
Time Charter Equivalent rate (TCE) was $28,770 per day for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to an average of $13,316 per day for the same period in 2020. The average supramax and panamax market index rates for the third quarter of 2021 were $32,033 per day. Pangaea’s earned TCE rates lagged the market index in the quarter due to the impact of timing of pricing and duration of performing voyages in a rapidly rising market as well as the impact of performance of voyages on fixed freight rates from our long term contracts of affreightment that are less than spot market rates.




Liquidity and Cash Flows
Cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents were $49.2 million as of September 30, 2021, compared with $48.4 million on December 31, 2020.
On September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had working capital of $63.3 million and $2.2 million, respectively. Net cash provided by operating activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $42.7 million compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $22.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
Net cash used in investing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $159.8 million compared to net cash provided by investing activities of $6.0 million for the same period in 2020. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company purchased six vessels for $159.7 million.

Net cash provided by financing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $117.9 million compared to net cash used in financing activities of $21.4 million for the same period of 2020. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company received $188.3 million in proceeds from long-term debt and finance leases and $6.9 million in proceeds from non-controlling interest recorded as long-term liability. The Company repaid $58.6 million of long term debt, $6.5 million of finance leases and $2.5 million of other long term liabilities. The Company also paid $4.0 million of cash dividends.

Company Update
On November 8, 2021, the Board of Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. appointed Richard du Moulin to serve as the Company's interim Chairman of the Board of Directors, effective immediately. Mr. du Moulin will serve as an interim Chairman until Mr. Ed Coll, currently on sick leave, is able to return to his position as Chairman.

INFORMATION ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES. As used herein, “GAAP” refers to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. To supplement our consolidated financial statements prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, this earnings release discusses non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net revenue and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA. This is considered a non-GAAP financial measure as defined in Rule 101 of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s historical or future performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

We use non-GAAP financial measures for internal financial and operational decision making purposes and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons of the performance and results of operations of our core business. Our management believes that non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the performance of our core business by excluding charges that are not incurred in the normal course of business. Non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal planning and comparisons to our historical performance and liquidity. We believe certain non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors as they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making and are used by our institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the performance and operational results of our core business.

Gross Profit. Gross profit represents total revenue less net transportation and service revenue and less vessel depreciation and amortization.

Net transportation and service revenue. Net transportation and service revenue represents total revenue less the total direct costs of transportation and services, which includes charter hire, voyage and vessel operating expenses. Net transportation and service revenue is included because it is used by management and certain investors to measure performance by comparison to other logistic service providers. Net transportation and service revenue is not an item recognized by the generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or U.S. GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, or any other indicator of a company's operating performance required by U.S. GAAP. Pangaea’s definition of net transportation and service revenue used here may not be comparable to an operating measure used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS. Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (or loss), determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, loss on sale and leaseback of vessels, share-based compensation and other non-operating income and/or expense, if any. Earnings per share represents net income divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Adjusted earnings per share represents net income attributable to Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. plus, when applicable, loss on sale of vessel, loss on sale and leaseback of vessel, loss on impairment of vessel, unrealized gains and losses on derivative instruments, and certain non-recurring charges, divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock.

There are limitations related to the use of net revenue versus income from operations, adjusted EBITDA versus income from operations, and adjusted EPS versus EPS calculated in accordance with GAAP. In particular, Pangaea’s definition of adjusted EBITDA used here are not comparable to EBITDA.

The table set forth above provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures presented during the period to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
