(Bloomberg) -- Epic Games Inc.’s first chance to put Apple Inc. on the defensive about its App Store at a high-stakes trial got off to a rocky start.Epic’s lawyers opened their questioning of App Store chief Matt Fischer by dredging up a five-year-old email that quoted a colleague saying “Matt feels extremely strong about not featuring our competitors on the App Store.” But the quote wasn’t presented in its full context and Fischer quickly dismissed it as a misrepresentation.Then the game maker was excoriated by the judge for blindsiding her about a cache of evidence exhibits that the company released publicly.Fischer is the first Apple employee to take the witness stand as Epic, the creator of Fortnite, tries to prove that the marketplace for apps that run on hundreds of millions of iPhones is operated like a monopoly. Trystan Kosmynka, a senior director at Apple in charge of the app review process, is set to be called to the stand later in the day.The trial in Oakland, California, comes as Apple faces a backlash -- with billions of dollars in revenue on the line -- from global regulators and some app developers who say its standard App Store fee of 30% and others policies are unjust and self-serving.How Apple’s App Store Sparked an Epic Trial: QuickTakeThe fight with Epic blew up in August when the game maker told customers it would replace Apple’s in-app purchase system with its own, circumventing Apple’s commissions from add-ons inside of Fortnite. Apple then removed the game, cutting off access for more than a billion customers.Apple, which vehemently denies abusing its market power, has called Epic’s legal gambit a “fundamental assault” on a business model that is beneficial to both developers and consumers.The statement that Fischer’s colleague made about him in a 2016 email was in relation to featuring Google and Amazon in Apple’s App Store page for accessible apps. The subject of the email was: “Competitor Apps in VoiceOver Collection.” The full sentence from which Epic pulled the quote was: “Although they may be our best and brightest apps, Matt feels extremely strong about not featuring our competitors on the App Store, so Tanya asked us to apply the same filters for this collection.”When Apple’s attorney asked Fischer to clarify the email, he said his colleague was misinformed.“We have promoted apps that are competitive to Apple apps,” Fischer testified. “We do this all the time.” Disney Plus and Hulu are examples of apps Apple has promoted despite having Apple TV+ service, Fischer said.Apple’s lawyer also neutralized Epic’s attempt to pin certain security and privacy problems on Fischer by pointing out that they weren’t part of his duties managing the App Store.Epic also managed to get cross-ways with U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers for putting documents online for public viewing without giving her an explanation.“All these things are being published, they’re out there,” Gonzalez Rogers said. “Non lawyers don’t understand the difference between something being admitted for the truth versus being admitted for some other purpose like notice so I want to nail that down.”Some of the documents that were uploaded to a publicly accessible account account disappeared shortly after the judge’s remarks.The courtroom has limited public seating due to pandemic-related restrictions, but the court has set up audio feeds for the public and media.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

STAMFORD, Conn., May 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Bulk Shipping Inc. (NASDAQ: EGLE) (“Eagle Bulk”, “Eagle” or the “Company”), one of the world’s largest owner-operators within the Supramax / Ultramax drybulk segment, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Highlights for the Quarter: Revenues, net of $96.6 million TCE Revenue (1) for the quarter equated to $60.3 millionAchieved TCE (1) of $15,124/day for the quarter, an increase of 50% year-on-year Realized a net income of $9.8 million, or $0.84 per basic and diluted shareAdjusted EBITDA(1) of $31.5 millionClosed on a secured short term revolving credit facility for $35.0 millionTook delivery of three modern scrubber-fitted SDARI-64 Ultramax bulkcarriers Subsequent Events: Looking ahead, fixed 71% of Q2 2021 available days at an average TCE of $20,100 as of May 4, 2021Upsized our term loan facility under the New Ultraco Debt Facility by $16.5 million which will be secured by three of our recent acquisitionsWe took delivery of M/V Sankaty Eagle on April 12, 2021 Gary Vogel, Eagle Bulk’s CEO, commented, “A recovering global economy backed by unprecedented stimulus has led to a surge in demand for commodities and significantly higher freight rates. Given our fleet positioning and active management approach to trading ships, we were able to capitalize on the rising market during Q1, leading to our best TCE performance in over a decade. The upward momentum driving our performance has accelerated, and as of today, our TCE for the second quarter is averaging over $20,000 with about 71% of available days fixed. In tandem with rising freight rates, asset prices have moved significantly higher over the past few months, and the seven vessels we acquired between late November and February are up roughly 35% in value since purchase. Additionally, based on current rate dynamics, we believe there may be considerable further upside to secondhand values.” Fleet Operating Data Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 March 31, 2020Ownership Days 4,199 4,550 Chartered in Days 658 604 Available Days 4,648 4,871 Operating Days 4,622 4,831 Fleet Utilization (%) 99.4% 99.2% 1 These are non-GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the financial tables included in this press release. An explanation of these measures and how they are calculated are also included below under the heading “Supplemental Information - Non-GAAP Financial Measures”.

Proportional adjustments were made to the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock and to the exercise price and the number of shares issuable upon exercise of all of the Company’s outstanding warrants, the exercise price and number of shares issuable upon exercise of the options outstanding under the Company’s equity incentive plans, and the number of shares subject to restricted stock awards under the Company’s equity incentive plans. All references to common stock and all per share data relating to periods prior to the Reverse Stock Split that are contained in this press release for the three months ended March 31, 2021 have been retrospectively adjusted to reflect the Reverse Stock Split unless explicitly stated otherwise. Results of Operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company reported a net income of $9.8 million, or basic and diluted income of $0.84 per share. In the comparable quarter of 2020, the Company reported a net loss of $3.5 million, or basic and diluted loss of $0.34 per share. Revenues, net Net time and voyage charter revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were $96.6 million compared with $74.4 million recorded in the comparable quarter in 2020. The increase in revenues was primarily attributable to higher charter rates as a result of the market recovery with increase in demand for drybulk products offset by a decrease in available days due to the sale of five vessels in the second half of 2020, which was partially offset by the acquisition of three Ultramax vessels in the first quarter of 2021. Voyage expenses Voyage expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 were $26.6 million and $26.6 million, respectively. Vessel operating expenses Vessel operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were $21.5 million compared to $23.7 million in the comparable quarter in 2020. The decrease in vessel operating expenses was primarily attributable to a decrease in ownership days after the sale of five Supramax vessels in the second half of 2020, offset by the acquisition of three Ultramax vessels in the first quarter of 2021. The ownership days for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 were 4,199 and 4,550, respectively. Average daily vessel operating expenses excluding certain one-time, non-recurring expenses related to vessel acquisitions and sales for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $4,894 as compared to $5,209 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Additionally, we continue to face higher operating expenses as a result of the COVID-19 crisis in the form of higher hotel and transportation costs related to crew changes. Charter hire expenses Charter hire expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were $8.5 million compared to $6.0 million in the comparable quarter in 2020. The increase in charter hire expenses was principally due to an increase in chartered-in days and an increase in charter hire rates due to improvement in the charter hire market. The total chartered-in days for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were 658 compared to 604 for the comparable quarter in the prior year. The Company currently charters in three Ultramax vessels on a long term basis with remaining lease terms of less than one year. Depreciation and amortization Depreciation and amortization expense for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 was $12.5 million and $12.5 million, respectively. Total depreciation and amortization expense for the three months ended March 31, 2021 includes $10.5 million of vessel and other fixed asset depreciation and $2.0 million relating to the amortization of deferred drydocking costs. Comparable amounts for the three months ended March 31, 2020 were $10.6 million of vessel and other fixed asset depreciation and $1.9 million of amortization of deferred drydocking costs. General and administrative expenses General and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 were $7.7 million and $8.0 million, respectively. General and administrative expenses included stock-based compensation of $0.9 million and $0.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The decrease in general and administrative expenses was mainly attributable to decreases in corporate travel and office expenses due to COVID-19. Other operating expense In March 2021, the U.S. government began investigating an allegation that one of our vessels may have improperly disposed of ballast water that entered the engine room bilges during a repair. The Company posted a surety bond as security for any fines and penalties. The Company incurred $1.0 million in expenses relating to the incident, which include legal fees, surety bond expenses, vessel offhire, crew changes and travel costs. Interest expense Interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 was $8.3 million and $9.2 million, respectively. The decrease in interest expense is primarily due to a decrease in our outstanding debt under the Norwegian Bond Debt and a decrease in interest rates on the New Ultraco Debt Facility.

The cash flows from operating activities increased as compared to the same period in the prior year primarily due to the increase in charter hire rates due to the economic recovery from COVID-19. (2) Net cash used in investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $53.4 million, compared to $15.0 million in the comparable period in the prior year. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company purchased three Ultramax vessels for $47.7 million and paid $4.7 million as advances for the purchase of four additional vessels to be delivered in the second quarter of 2021. The Company paid $0.8 million for the purchase of ballast water treatment systems on our fleet. The Company also received insurance proceeds of $0.1 million for hull and machinery claims. Additionally, the Company paid $0.3 million towards vessel improvements. (3) Net cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $30.9 million compared to $40.5 million in the comparable period in 2020. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company received $55.0 million in proceeds from the revolver loan under the New Ultraco Debt Facility. The Company repaid $7.8 million of the New Ultraco Debt Facility and $15.0 million of the revolver loan under the Super Senior Facility. The Company paid $0.8 million to settle net share equity awards. Additionally, the Company paid $0.2 million to the lenders of the Holdco RCF Agreement and $0.3 million in financing costs relating to the equity offerings in December 2020. As of March 31, 2021, our cash and cash equivalents including restricted cash was $80.7 million compared to $88.8 million as of December 31, 2020. As of March 31, 2021, the Company's outstanding debt excluding debt discount and debt issuance costs consisted of the $180.0 million Norwegian Bond, the $213.6 million under the New Ultraco Debt Facility, which includes $55.0 million of an outstanding revolver loan, and the $114.1 million Convertible Bond Debt. In addition, as of March 31, 2021, we had $39.0 million in undrawn revolver facilities available under the Super Senior Facility and the Holdco RCF Credit Agreement. Capital Expenditures and Drydocking Our capital expenditures relate to the purchase of vessels and capital improvements to our vessels, which are expected to enhance the revenue earning capabilities and safety of the vessels. In addition to acquisitions that we may undertake in future periods, the Company's other major capital expenditures include funding the Company's program of regularly scheduled drydocking necessary to comply with international shipping standards and environmental laws and regulations. Although the Company has some flexibility regarding the timing of its drydocking, the costs are relatively predictable. Management anticipates that vessels are to be drydocked every two and a half years for vessels older than 15 years and five years for vessels younger than 15 years. Funding of these requirements is anticipated to be met with cash from operations. We anticipate that this process of recertification will require us to reposition these vessels from a discharge port to shipyard facilities, which will reduce our available days and operating days during that period. Drydocking costs incurred are deferred and amortized to expense on a straight-line basis over the period through the date of the next scheduled drydocking for those vessels. In the three months ended March 31, 2021, four of our vessels completed drydock and we incurred drydocking expenditures of $4.8 million. In the three months ended March 31, 2020, three of our vessels completed drydock and we incurred drydocking expenditures of $5.2 million. The following table represents certain information about the estimated costs for anticipated vessel drydockings, BWTS, and scrubber installations in the next four quarters, along with the anticipated off-hire days: Projected Costs (1) (in millions)Quarter EndingOff-hire Days(2)BWTSDrydocksVessel Upgrades(3)June 30, 2021173 $2.6 $1.3 $0.2 September 30, 2021250 2.9 7.4 1.2 December 31, 2021182 1.9 4.4 1.0 March 31, 2022131 1.4 1.4 0.4 (1) Actual costs will vary based on various factors, including where the drydockings are actually performed.(2) Actual duration of off-hire days will vary based on the age and condition of the vessel, yard schedules and other factors.(3) Vessel upgrades represents capex relating to items such as high-spec low friction hull paint which improves fuel efficiency and reduces fuel costs, NeoPanama Canal chock fittings enabling vessels to carry additional cargo through the new Panama Canal locks, as well as other retrofitted fuel-saving devices.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures This release includes various financial measures that are non-GAAP financial measures as defined under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). We believe these measures provide important supplemental information to investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results. We use these measures, together with GAAP measures, for internal managerial purposes and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. However, we do not, and you should not, rely on non-GAAP financial measures alone as measures of our performance. We believe that non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that when taken together with GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures that we also provide in our press releases provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. We strongly encourage you to review all of our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and to not rely on any single financial measure. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies’ non-GAAP financial measures, even if they have similar names. Non-GAAP Financial Measures EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA We define EBITDA as net income under GAAP adjusted for interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that is used as a supplemental financial measure by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks and others, to assess our operating performance as compared to that of other companies in our industry, without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical costs basis. Our Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income/(loss), operating income/(loss), cash flows provided by/(used in) by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Our Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of another company because all companies may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA adjusted to exclude the items which represent certain non-cash, one-time and other items such as vessel impairment, operating lease impairment, (gain)/loss on sale of vessels, loss on debt extinguishment and stock-based compensation expense that the Company believes are not indicative of the ongoing performance of its core operations. The following table presents a reconciliation of our net income/(loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.

TCE revenue and TCE Time charter equivalent (“TCE”) is a non-GAAP financial measure that is commonly used in the shipping industry primarily to compare daily earnings generated by vessels on time charters with daily earnings generated by vessels on voyage charters, because charter hire rates for vessels on voyage charters are generally not expressed in per-day amounts while charter hire rates for vessels on time charters generally are expressed in such amounts. The Company defines TCE as shipping revenues less voyage expenses and charter hire expenses, adjusted for the impact of one legacy time charter and realized gains/(losses) on FFAs and bunker swaps, divided by the number of owned available days. TCE 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. The Company's calculation of TCE may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. The Company calculates relative performance by comparing TCE against the Baltic Supramax Index (“BSI”) adjusted for commissions and fleet makeup. Owned available days is the number of our ownership days less the aggregate number of days that our vessels are off-hire due to vessel familiarization upon acquisition, repairs, vessel upgrades or special surveys. The shipping industry uses available days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels should be capable of generating revenues. The following table presents the reconciliation of revenues, net to TCE: Reconciliation of Revenues, net to TCE Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 March 31, 2020Revenues, net$96,572,168 $74,378,319 Less: Voyage expenses$(26,614,919) $(26,564,358)Charter hire expenses$(8,480,220) $(6,040,939)Reversal of one legacy time charter$82,821 $462,636 Realized (loss)/gain on FFAs and bunker swaps$(1,213,151) $755,969 TCE revenue$60,346,699 $42,991,627 Owned available days$3,990 $4,267 TCE$15,124 $10,075 Glossary of Terms: Ownership days: We define ownership days as the aggregate number of days in a period during which each vessel in our fleet has been owned by us. Ownership days are an indicator of the size of our fleet over a period and affect both the amount of revenues and the amount of expenses that we recorded during a period. Chartered-in under operating lease days: We define chartered-in under operating lease days as the aggregate number of days in a period during which we chartered-in vessels. Periodically, the Company charters in vessels on a single trip basis. Available days: We define available days as the number of our ownership days and chartered-in days less the aggregate number of days that our vessels are off-hire due to vessel familiarization upon acquisition, repairs, vessel upgrades or special surveys and other reasons which prevent the vessel from performing under the relevant charter party such as surveys, medical events, stowaway disembarkation, etc. The shipping industry uses available days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels should be capable of generating revenues. Operating days: We define operating days as the number of available days in a period less the aggregate number of days that our vessels are off-hire due to any reason, including unforeseen circumstances. The shipping industry uses operating days to measure the aggregate number of days in a period during which vessels actually generate revenues. Fleet utilization: We calculate fleet utilization by dividing the number of our operating days during a period by the number of our available days during the period. The shipping industry uses fleet utilization to measure a company’s efficiency in finding suitable employment for its vessels and minimizing the amount of days that its vessels are off-hire for reasons other than scheduled repairs or repairs under guarantee, vessel upgrades, special surveys or vessel positioning. Our fleet continues to perform at high utilization rates.
