“We are pleased to report strong results for the 4th quarter and full year 2015,” said Captain Ian T. Blackley, OSG’s president and CEO. “The positive supply and demand fundamentals in the international tanker market, with ton-mile demand expansion in both crude and product sectors, along with the successful execution of our operating strategy drove impressive results in our International business. In our Domestic business, while Jones Act sentiment may have softened from a year ago, I am pleased to report stronger results for 2015 compared to 2014. The lower oil price has stimulated increased gasoline consumption in the United States and we have also seen increasing Domestic lightering volumes. In both our businesses, we expect that many of the positive tanker fundamentals we saw in 2015 should remain in place this year.

“The strong cash generation from our 79 vessel fleet and the successful execution of several key transactions have strengthened our financial position and provide us with maximum flexibility as we evaluate strategic alternatives. We see a disconnect today between freight rates, asset prices and equity values in our industry –this may offer opportunities that we believe we are well-positioned to capitalize on. I remain confident in our ability to increase value and, when appropriate, return value to our shareholders,” concluded Blackley.

Fourth Quarter & Full Year 2015 Results

TCE revenues grew to $234.4 million for the quarter, an increase of $35.5 million compared with the fourth quarter of 2014, driven by continuing strength in international crude and product spot market rates. TCE revenues grew to $924.8 million for the full year 2015, an increase of $163.5 million compared with the full year 2014.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2015 was $9.3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared with $26.5 million, or $0.05 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2014. The decrease included $27.6 million in bond premium and consent fees and related professional fees paid on notes repurchased. Net income for the full year 2015 was $284.0 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, compared to a net loss for the full year 2014 of $152.3 million. Included in the 2015 amount was a one-time, non-cash income tax benefit of $150.1 million and the net losses in the comparative 2014 period reflect bankruptcy related charges.

Adjusted EBITDA was $122.9 million for the quarter, an increase of $32.0 million compared with the fourth quarter of 2014, driven primarily by the strength of spot rates in the international crude and product markets. Adjusted EBITDA was $491.2 million for the full year 2015, an increase of $192.6 million compared with the full year 2014, driven primarily by those higher rates.

International Crude Tankers

TCE revenues for the International Crude Tankers segment were $84.2 million for the quarter, an increase of $32.9 million compared with the fourth quarter of 2014. This significant increase resulted from a substantial strengthening in daily rates across all vessel types in the segment, with the VLCC spot rate increasing to approximately $60,300 per day in the fourth quarter, nearly double from the comparable 2014 period; the Aframax spot rate increasing 72% to $34,000 per day; and the Panamax blended rate increasing 17% to $20,300 per day.

TCE revenues for the International Crude Tankers segment were $304.2 million for the full year 2015, an increase of $75.9 million compared with the full year 2014. For the full year 2015, the VLCC spot rate was approximately $54,600 per day; the Aframax spot rate $34,000 per day; and the Panamax blended rate $20,500 per day.

International Product Carriers

TCE revenues for the International Product Carriers segment were $35.7 million for the quarter, down 2% compared with the fourth quarter of 2014. This decrease was due to 430 less revenue days resulting from the sale of the Luxmar in July 2015, the redelivery of one time chartered-in vessel and an increase in drydock offhire days, which was partially offset by higher Medium Range (MR) spot rates. MR spot rates were approximately $18,100 per day in the fourth quarter, up 21% from the same period in 2014. TCE revenues for the International Product Carriers segment were $171.6 million for the full year 2015, an increase of $52.9 million compared with the full year 2014. MR spot rates were approximately $19,500 per day for the full year 2015.

U.S. Flag

TCE revenues for the U.S. Flag segment were $114.6 million for the quarter, an increase of $3.2 million compared with the fourth quarter of 2014, driven by a 5% increase in Jones Act Product Carrier TCE revenues. Additionally, the U.S. Flag segment benefited from increased Delaware Bay lightering volumes. TCE revenues for the U.S. Flag segment were $449.1 million for the full year 2015, up 8% compared with the full year 2014, driven by a $28.2 million increase in Jones Act Product Carrier TCE revenues, largely due to increased rates achieved on renewal of expiring time charters.

1 The December 31, 2014 balance sheet has been revised from that previously reported in the Annual Report on Form 10-K to reflect the correction of an error by reclassifying restricted cash of $70,093 from current assets to non-current assets and to reflect a corresponding reduction in the previously reported amount for total current assets. The error had no impact on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive loss, changes in equity/(deficit) or cash flows.

2 The Company adopted ASU No. 2015-17, Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes, which provides for the classification of all deferred tax assets and liabilities as noncurrent amounts, as of December 31, 2015 and applied the guidance retrospectively for December 31, 2014. For December 31, 2014, the Company previously reported a current deferred tax asset of $5,312 and noncurrent deferred tax liabilities of $283,277; the retrospective adoption of this accounting standard resulted in noncurrent deferred tax liabilities of $277,965

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.

(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. 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:

($ in thousands) 2015     2014     2015     2014  
TCE revenues $234,415     $198,921 $924,848     $761,359
Add: Voyage Expenses 9,310     18,007     39,658     196,075
Shipping revenues $243,725     $216,928     $964,506     $957,434
 

(B) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA represents net (loss)/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 considered a substitute for, net (loss)/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 by companies as a measure of operating results and performance, neither of those items as prepared by the Company is necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to differences in methods of calculation. The following table reconciles net income/(loss), as reflected in the consolidated statements of operations, to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA:
