November 25, 2020NORDIC SHIPHOLDING A/S Company Announcement: 10/2020 Published via NASDAQ OMX on November 25, 2020 Q3 Result 2020 Summary The comparison figures for period ended 30 September 2019 are stated in parenthesis.The very high Time Charter Equivalent (“TCE”) rates arising from the short-term surge in demand for tonnage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the oil price war which started in Q1 2020 positively impacted the Group’s earnings in 9M 2020. Despite the downward correction in daily TCE rate from May 2020, the average daily TCE rates earned in Q3 2020 and 9M 2020 by the 5 vessels were approximately 11% and 53% higher than the average TCE rates earned in Q3 2019 and 9M 2019, respectively.The TCE revenue in Q3 2020 falls short of expectation due to lower than expected daily TCE rates, exacerbated by lower contribution from Nordic Hanne as she was off-hired since 11 September 2020 due to a contact damage during a Ship-to-Ship operation. She resumed trading on 28 October 2020.For the 9 months ended 30 September 2020, the Group incurred a loss after tax of USD 3.9 million (including a one-off impairment loss of USD 10.7 million on the vessels), compared to a loss after tax of USD 4.7 million in the same period last year. Excluding the impairment loss of USD 10.7 million (USD 0.2 million), the Group generated a profit after tax of USD 6.8 million for the 9 months under review (loss after tax of USD 4.5 million). The improved TCE revenue from the vessels contributed to the improved results in 9M 2020.Despite the sale of Nordic Ruth in July 2019, TCE revenue rose 57.3% to USD 24.0 million (USD 15.2 million) in 9M 2020 primarily from higher TCE revenue generated by the vessels in the pools compared to the same period last year. Further, the TCE revenue in 9M 2019 were impacted negatively by the dry-dock of 3 vessels (Nordic Anne, Nordic Agnetha and Nordic Amy) in Q3 2019.Expenses relating to the operation of vessels in 9M 2020 decreased to USD 8.6 million (USD 10.8 million) mainly due to the sale of Nordic Ruth in July 2019.EBITDA increased significantly to USD 14.2 million (USD 3.3 million) as a result of improved TCE revenue in 9M 2020. Other external costs remained relatively unchanged at USD 1.0 million (USD 1.0 million).In line with management’s strategy to secure longer term financing in the renegotiation of the Group’s loan facilities, two co-brokers were appointed in May 2020 to officially test the buying interest for one vessel, Nordic Hanne, a handysize tanker. Hence, the Group recognised impairment losses totaling USD 4.2 million in 9M 2020 following the reclassification of Nordic Hanne as an asset held-for-sale in Q2 2020. It is noted that the estimation of Nordic Hanne’s expected sale value is highly uncertain. The Group also recognised impairment losses of USD 6.5 million on the other four vessels in 9M 2020 primarily due to reduced earnings expectations. The Group realised a loss of USD 0.2 million on asset-held-for-sale in 9M 2019 related to the sale of Nordic Ruth in July 2019.After accounting for depreciation, impairment losses, interest expenses and other finance expenses, the loss after tax was USD 3.9 million in 9M 2020 (loss of USD 4.7 million).Between 31 December 2019 and 30 September 2020, equity decreased from USD 7.9 million to USD 4.0 million as a result of the cumulative loss during the period. Consequently, the equity ratio declined from 8.1% to 5.1%.As part of the loan restructuring concluded with the lending banks in Q4 2018, the financial covenants under the original loans such as (i) minimum value (fair market value of vessels as a percentage of outstanding loan) and (ii) minimum equity ratio are waived whilst the minimum liquidity level is reduced. The relief from these financial covenants are provided till and including 30 September 2020. In addition, the quarterly loan instalments due from December 2018 to September 2020 are deferred to December 2020 where all of the Group’s debts to the lending banks mature. The Company, together with its majority shareholder, are in active discussions with the lending banks on securing longer term financing for the Group. Negotiations are ongoing and are expected to be completed during December 2020 when an announcement will be published. It is management’s expectation that the lenders will finance the Company in a period longer than 31 December 2020.The Group is also subject to a quarterly cash sweep mechanism under which the Group after payment of instalments and interest under the loan agreement, must apply any cash and cash equivalents of the Group in excess of USD 6.0 million towards prepayment of the loan. During 9M 2020, this cash sweep mechanism was activated on 31 March 2020, 30 June 2020 and 30 September 2020, and a total of USD 13.3 million excess cash was used to pay down the loan (USD NIL cash sweep for 9M 2019).During the financial period under review, cash flow generated from operations was USD 14.1 million (USD 2.0 million) contributed by earnings from the pools. As at 30 September 2020, cash and cash equivalents stood at USD 6.2 million (USD 6.4 million, including balances held in dry-docking reserve bank accounts).The outlook for 2020 remains unchanged as indicated in the Company Announcement 09/2020 on 20 November 2020.For the rest of 2020, the five vessels will continue to be commercially deployed on a pool basis (including the vessel currently earmarked for sale). Barring unforeseen circumstances, the TCE revenue for 2020 is forecasted to be in the region of USD 27.0 million – USD 29.0 million.After accounting for operating expenditure budgeted by the respective technical managers, the Group’s expected EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) for 2020 is in the range of USD 13.0 million – USD 15.0 million. The result before tax is expected to be a loss between USD 5.0 million – USD 7.0 million including impairment loss.

Japan used a visit by the Chinese foreign minister on Wednesday to protest Beijing's increased activity and what it calls infiltration around disputed East China Sea islands. “The situation is extremely serious,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato told reporters after meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who arrived in Tokyo on Tuesday for a two-day visit. Relations between the two countries have been strained over territorial disputes and wartime history, even though ties have improved in recent years while China’s trade dispute with the U.S. has escalated.
(Bloomberg) -- A leading Chinese vaccine developer has applied for authorization to bring its Covid-19 shot to the market, seeking to get a jump on Western rivals as the race for a working inoculation against the virus enters the final stretch.China National Biotec Group Co. has submitted an application to Chinese regulators, reported state media Xinhua Finance on Wednesday, citing parent company Sinopharm’s vice general manager Shi Shengyi. The application likely includes interim data from the company’s Phase III human testing conducted in the Middle East and South America.Stocks related to Sinopharm Group, including its Hong Kong unit, surged on Wednesday after the news.A CNBG spokeswoman said she had no further information when contacted by Bloomberg. Calls to Sinopharm Group went unanswered.With the application, CNBG will likely become the first developer outside of Russia to see its shots made available for general public use, underscoring China’s determination to be a major player in supplying inoculations to countries around the world. Western drugmakers like Pfizer Inc. and AstraZeneca Plc are only at the stage of seeking authorization for emergency use of their shots, a status China granted to its developers months ago.But unlike western frontrunners, CNBG has yet to release any public data on the efficacy of its shots in Phase III trials, making it difficult to compare its vaccines to others, or estimate how quickly it is likely to receive approval.The regulator will now review data from CNBG’s Phase I and II trials, plus interim data from its Phase III trials, which Chairman Yang Xiaoming said last week the company has just started un-blinding. China’s drug regulator, the National Medical Products Administration, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.The vaccine race has taken on vital importance as countries look to more definitively re-open their economies and stem a pandemic that has sickened more than 59 million. Inoculations are seen as the best hope as a fresh wave of infections is forcing nations to reintroduce lockdowns and other restrictions.Traditional MethodA state-owned drugmaker that has a dominant share of China’s vaccine market, CNBG in April was among the world’s first to push experimental shots to the crucial final stage of human testing. The company’s research institutes developed two shots using an inactivated version of the virus to stimulate immune response, an approach widely adopted by many of the existing vaccines used around the world.Such vaccines have the advantage of easier storage and distribution as they don’t need to be frozen -- unlike the experimental mRNA vaccines being developed by Pfizer and Moderna Inc. CNBG’s shots can be stored at normal refrigerator temperatures, making access for rural areas and developing countries more likely.CNBG has vaccine supply agreements with several developing countries including Malaysia, Brazil, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates, according to public reports compiled by Bloomberg. Leading Western developers like AstraZeneca and Pfizer have inked agreements with far more countries.Despite the fact that the vaccines haven’t yet received regulatory approval for widespread use, doses have already been given to hundreds of thousands of people in China under an emergency-use program. That has raised concern among scientists of potential risks in using shots whose safety has yet to be thoroughly studied.CNBG has said that its phase III trials -- involving more than 50,000 people in countries from Argentina to Egypt -- have been progressing smoothly, and it has not received any reports of serious adverse events.Safety has become a major concern as drugmakers compress the vaccine development process from years to a matter of months. AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson paused their trials after a participant developed an unexplained illness. Another Chinese frontrunner, Sinovac Biotech Ltd., also saw its trial briefly halted in Brazil after a participant died. All three trials resumed after investigators found no evidence that the events were caused by the vaccines.Pfizer said this month that the shot it co-developed with BioNTech has a protection rate of more than 90%. This high level of efficacy was also seen in Moderna’s shots, which use a similar mRNA technology. AstraZeneca’s vaccine, a viral vector developed with the University of Oxford, stopped an average of 70% of participants from falling ill, an early analysis showed.(Updates throughout)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
