Section 2: EX-99.1 (EXHIBIT 99.1)

Exhibit 99.1






Tampa, FL – May 10, 2017 – Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. (NYSE: OSG) (the “Company” or “OSG”) a provider of energy transportation services for crude oil and petroleum products in the U.S. Flag markets, today reported results for the first quarter 2017.



·Income from continuing operations for the first quarter was $5.4 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to a net loss from continuing operations of $8.7 million, or ($0.09) per diluted share, for the first quarter 2016.
·Shipping revenues were $108.1 million for the current quarter, a decrease of 6.1% from $115.1 million in the prior year quarter. Time charter equivalent (TCE) revenues(A) for the first quarter 2017 were $102.3 million, down 8.8% compared to the same period in 2016.
·Net income was $5.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, compared to $50.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. Net income for the prior year period included income from discontinued operations from International Seaways (INSW) of $59.4 million.
·First quarter 2017 adjusted EBITDA(B) was $36.2 million, down 11.2% from $40.7 million in the same period in 2016.
·Cash and cash equivalents were $198.1 million at March 31, 2017. Total cash(C) was $204.4 million at the end of the current quarter.
·Repurchased and retired $14.5 million in principal of the 8.125% notes due in 2018.
·Pursuant to a final decree and order of the bankruptcy court, OSG closed its bankruptcy case.


Sam Norton, OSG’s President and CEO stated, “We had a solid first quarter to start 2017 despite ongoing challenging market conditions. Although we experienced lower charter rates, our ability to attain high utilization rates throughout the first quarter helped drive revenue. Our diverse operating platform, which includes shuttle tankers in the U.S. Gulf Coast, the only licensed operator of lightering vessels in the Delaware Bay, and the only operator of tankers in the Maritime Security Program (“MSP”), provides stability against market volatility affecting other areas of our business. Additionally, we are starting to see results of efforts to be more efficient with general and administrative costs. This helped reduce expenses which drove higher operating income.”


First Quarter 2017 Results


TCE revenues for the first quarter of 2017 were $102.3 million, a decrease of $9.9 million, or 8.8%, compared with the first quarter of 2016, primarily due to lower average daily rates earned. Excluding the Delaware Bay lightering TCE revenues, TCE revenues declined by $12.0 million, of which $10.9 million was due to lower average daily rates. This decrease in TCE revenues was partially offset by a $2.0 million increase in Delaware Bay lightering revenues. Shipping revenues were $108.1 million for the quarter, down 6.1% compared with the first quarter of 2016. The decrease in shipping revenues was also driven by lower charter rates.


A, B, CReconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures are included in the financial tables attached to this press release starting on Page 8.




Operating income for the first quarter of 2017 was $19.3 million, compared to operating income of $17.4 million in the first quarter of 2016. The increase reflected reduced operating expense, including depreciation and amortization expense, and lower general and administrative expenses, which offset the decline in shipping revenues


Income from continuing operations for the current period first quarter was $5.4 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared with a loss from continuing operations of $8.7 million, or ($0.09) per diluted share, for the first quarter 2016. The increase reflects a lower tax provision in the first quarter of 2017 compared to 2016. In the prior year period, a deferred tax liability on the unremitted earnings of INSW was recorded, resulting in an income tax provision of $33.2 million, compared to tax expense of $3.6 million in the 2017 period. In addition, interest expense decreased by $2.6 million in the current period as the result of significant debt reductions in the current and prior year periods.


Adjusted EBITDA was $36.2 million for the quarter, a decrease of $4.6 million compared with the first quarter of 2016, driven primarily by the decline in TCE revenues, partially offset by lower general and administrative expenses.


Discontinued Operations


As previously disclosed, OSG completed the separation of its business into two independent publicly traded companies through the spin-off of its then wholly owned subsidiary INSW on November 30, 2016. The spin-off separated OSG and INSW into two distinct businesses with separate management. OSG retained the U.S. Flag business and INSW holds entities and other assets and liabilities that formed OSG’s former International Flag business.  The spin-off transaction was in the form of a pro rata distribution of INSW’s common stock to our stockholders and warrant holders of record as of the close of business on November 18, 2016.


In accordance with Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-08, Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity, the assets and liabilities and results of operations of INSW are reported as discontinued operations for the first quarter of 2016.


Net income from discontinued operations for the first quarter of 2016 was $59.4 million.

Forward-Looking Statements


This release contains forward-looking statements as defined under the federal securities laws. Words such as “may”, “should”, ”believes”, “estimates”, “targets”, “anticipates” and similar expressions generally identify forward-looking statements; however, statements other than statements of historical facts should be considered forward-looking statements. These matters or statements may relate to the Company’s prospects, its ability to retain and effectively integrate new members of management and the effect of the Company’s spin-off of International Seaways, Inc. Forward-looking statements are based on the Company’s current plans, estimates and projections, and are subject to change based on a number of factors. The following factors, among others, could cause the Company’s actual results to differ: the reduced diversification and heightened exposure to the Jones Act market of OSG’s business following the spin-off from OSG on November 30, 2016 of International Seaways, Inc. (INSW), which owned or leased OSG’s fleet of International Flag vessels, which may make OSG more susceptible to market fluctuations than before such spin-off; the highly cyclical nature of OSG’s industry; fluctuations in the market value of vessels; declines in charter rates, including spot charter rates or other market deterioration; an increase in the supply of vessels without a commensurate increase in demand; the impact of adverse weather and natural disasters; the adequacy of OSG’s insurance to cover its losses, including in connection with maritime accidents or spill events; constraints on capital availability; the Company’s ability to generate sufficient cash to service its indebtedness and to comply with debt covenants; the Company’s ability to renew its time charters when they expire or to enter into new time charters; competition within the Company’s industry and OSG’s ability to compete effectively for charters; the loss of a large customer; and changes in demand in specialized markets in which the Company currently trades. Investors should also carefully consider the risk factors outlined in more detail in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for OSG and in similar sections of other filings made by the Company with the SEC from time to time. The Company assumes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements and written and oral forward looking statements attributable to the Company or its representatives after the date of this release are qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements contained in this paragraph and in other reports previously or hereafter filed by the Company with the SEC.

Reconciliation to Non-GAAP Financial Information


The Company believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, the following non-GAAP measures may provide certain investors with additional information that will better enable them to evaluate the Company’s performance. Accordingly, these non-GAAP measures are intended to provide supplemental information, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.



(A) Time Charter Equivalent (TCE) Revenues


Consistent with general practice in the shipping industry, the Company uses TCE revenues, which represents shipping revenues less voyage expenses, as a measure to compare revenue generated from a voyage charter to revenue generated from a time charter. TCE, a non-GAAP measure, provides additional meaningful information in conjunction with shipping revenues, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, because it assists Company management in making decisions regarding the deployment and use of its vessels and in evaluating their financial performance. Reconciliation of TCE revenues of the segments to shipping revenues as reported in the consolidated statements of operations follow:


Three Months Ended March 31,


($ in thousands)

  2017   2016 
TCE revenues  $102,324   $112,213 
Add: Voyage Expenses   5,792    2,867 
Shipping revenues  $108,116   $115,080 







(B) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA


EBITDA represents net income before interest expense, income taxes and depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA consists of EBITDA adjusted for the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent, and should not be a substitute for, net income or cash flows from operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. Some of the limitations are: (i) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; (ii) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; and (iii) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt. While EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used as a measure of operating results and performance, neither of them is necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to differences in methods of calculation. The following table reconciles net income as reflected in the consolidated statements of operations, to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA:
