“I am pleased to report strong second quarter and first half results,” said Captain Ian T. Blackley, OSG’s president and CEO. “In our international business, spot rates have softened this summer, as global inventories have climbed, but we believe the fundamentals remain positive. In our domestic business, we face the challenges of a decline in U.S crude production, high inventory levels and the delivery of newbuild tonnage, but the sustained lower oil price environment is also driving record U.S. gasoline consumption.”

“We continue to make good progress towards separating our international and domestic businesses. By creating two independent public companies, with an increased ability to focus on their own business, we believe each will be better positioned to enhance shareholder value. At the same time, the cash generated by our 79 vessel fleet gives us flexibility to further strengthen our balance sheet and consider additional opportunities to create value for our shareholders” concluded Capt. Blackley.

Second Quarter 2016 Results

TCE revenues for the second quarter of 2016 were $215.7 million, a decrease of $19.5 million compared with the second quarter of 2015, primarily driven by lower daily rates earned by the International Flag fleet. TCE revenues for the first half of 2016 were $452.6 million, a decrease of $4.2 million compared with the first half of 2015.

Operating income for the second quarter of 2016 was $67.1 million, a decrease of $25.2 million compared with the second quarter of 2015, primarily driven by the decline in TCE revenues and an increase in depreciation and amortization expenses. Operating income for the first half of 2016 was $153.3 million, a decrease of $16.6 million compared with the first half of 2015.

Net income for the second quarter of 2016 was $29.9 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared with $58.4 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2015. The decrease reflects the impact of lower TCE revenues, increases in depreciation and amortization expenses, and a higher non-cash deferred tax provision, partially offset by lower interest expense. Net income for the first half of 2016 was $80.6 million, or $0.84 per diluted share, compared with $101.3 million, or $1.05 per diluted share, in the first half of 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA was $110.1 million for the quarter, a decrease of $20.1 million compared with the second quarter of 2015, driven by lower daily rates earned by the International Flag fleet. Adjusted EBITDA was $239.6 million for the first half of 2016, a decrease of $4.3 million compared with the first half of 2015.

International Crude Tankers

TCE revenues for the International Crude Tankers segment were $66.5 million for the quarter, down 14% compared with the second quarter of 2015. This decrease resulted from a softening in daily spot rates across all vessel classes in the segment, with the VLCC spot rate declining to $47,000 per day in the second quarter, down 7% from the same period in 2015. The Aframax spot rate was $23,500 per day, down a third from the second quarter of 2015; and the Panamax blended rate was $20,500 per day, comparable to same period in 2015. TCE revenues for the International Crude Tankers segment were $153.9 million for the first half of 2016, an increase of $10.1 million compared with the first half of 2015.

International Product Carriers

TCE revenues for the International Product Carriers segment were $34.4 million for the quarter, down 19% compared with the second quarter of 2015. This decrease was primarily due to lower average daily blended rates earned by the MR fleet. Also contributing was a 109-day decrease in revenue days resulting primarily from the sale of an older vessel in July 2015. These decreases were partially offset by the LR1 blended rate increasing to approximately $21,300 in the second quarter, up 10% from the comparable 2015 period. TCE revenues for the International Product Carriers segment were $71.8 million for the first half of 2016, a decrease of $14.1 million compared with the first half of 2015.

U.S. Flag

TCE revenues for the U.S. Flag segment were $114.7 million for the quarter, down 1% compared with the second quarter of 2015, primarily due to a decline in Jones Act spot market revenue related to incremental coastwise voyage opportunities that were available to the ATBs principally employed in Delaware Bay lightering in the second quarter 2015, but not in the second quarter 2016. This decrease was largely offset by Delaware Bay lightering volumes more than doubling to 180,000 barrels per day during the quarter from the comparable 2015 period, as the pricing spread between Brent and West Texas Intermediate narrowed making it more attractive for U.S. Northeast refineries to import crude oil, as well as a 76-day increase in revenue days resulting from fewer drydock and repair days. TCE revenues for the U.S. Flag segment were $227.0 million for the first half of 2016, essentially the same as the first half of 2015.

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 with GAAP.

(1) 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. Time charter equivalent revenues, 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 June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,
($ in thousands) 2016   2015   2016   2015
TCE revenues $215,695   $235,203   $452,617   $456,845
Add: Voyage Expenses 5,751   10,284   12,585   22,184
Shipping revenues $221,446   $245,487   $465,202   $479,029
 

(2) 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:
