NJTC added that it continues to build on the profit generated over the first half of this year, and expects a profitable 2015. In the first nine months, NJTC registered a profit of RMB479m and a revenue of RMB4.02bn.

PostTime:2015-05-26 08:39:09 View:196

Chinese shipyard Sainty Marine has been ordered by a local court to pay Nanjing Yahao Ship Manufacturing approximately $202,800 over the construction of four barges, a sum that the shipbuilder has managed to lower after a successful appeal. Nanjing Yahao filed a lawsuit at Wuhan Maritime Court back in July 2013, seeking compensation of RMB7.37m ($1.19m), but the court ruled in July 2014 that Sainty Marine need only to repay RMB2.48m. However, Sainty Marine lodged an appeal to the Hubei Supreme Court, and the higher court has now ruled that Sainty Marine will instead pay $110,000 in shipbuilding cost and RMB575,300 as compensation to Nanjing Yahao, putting the total repayment at around $202,800. Shenzhen-listed Sainty Marine is mired in financial troubles as some of its assets and bank accounts are frozen. The yard is also hit by shipbuilding contract cancellations and buyer’s refusal to take delivery of badly finished vessels. The company also faces the risk of a failed debt-for-equity rescue deal over the restructuring of debt-ridden compatriot Nantong Mingde Heavy Industry. Sainty Marine had reported a loss of RMB327.59m in 2014 and it warned of a continued loss in 2015.

Nanjing Tanker books provisions of $756m for 19 VLCCs

PostTime:2014-02-26 08:16:02 View:329

Financially-weakened Nanjing Tanker Corporation (NJTC) has booked provisions in financial year 2013 amounting to RMB4.62bn ($755.96m) for 19 VLCCs due to the weak oil tanker shipping market. The Shanghai-listed tanker shipowner said it will have liabilities of RMB2.1bn for 10 chartered-in VLCCs and impairment of assets of RMB2.52bn for nine owned VLCCs. On the chartered crude tankers, NJTC said it has agreed with the owners to continue the 10-12 years charter, even though spot rates are currently way below the rates that NJTC had agreed to pay. “Due to consecutive losses, we have met the accounting criteria to record provisions for losses (for the 10 VLCCs),” NJTC, subsidiary of China's state-owned Sinotrans & CSC Holdings, said in a regulatory filing. NJTC also announced that the asset values of the nine owned VLCCs have fallen since 2012 and chances of seeing the values recover are slim. “Since 2009, the global tanker shipping market, particularly crude tankers, has been sluggish and freight rates have stayed below the industry's average breakeven level. The asset values of large crude tankers have also plunged sharply since 2012,” it said. NJTC had earlier predicted an annual loss of RMB1.27bn in 2013, widening from a deficit of RMB1.24bn in 2012. It has recorded a loss of RMB989m in the first three quarters of last year. NJTC will delist from the Shanghai Stock Exchange after it releases its 2013 annual report in April, after four years of consecutive losses. Its shares have been suspended from trading since May 2013.

Financially-troubled Nanjing Tanker Corporation (NJTC) has confirmed that it will delist from the Shanghai Stock Exchange this year following four years of consecutive losses since 2010. “Due to the sluggish global tanker shipping market and high operating costs, NJTC expects to record significant net losses in the financial year 2013. In accordance to the regulations of the Shanghai Stock Exchange, NJTC will cease to be listed after the release of its 2013 annual report,” the company said. NJTC posted a loss of RMB984.71m ($161.6m) in the third quarter ended 30 September 2013. Shares of the tanker shipping firm, a subsidiary of China's state-owned Sinotrans & CSC Group, have stopped trading since May 2013. Last week, NJTC announced that it plans to acquire 10 VLCCs and 10 MR tankers that are currently on 10-12 years of time charter contracts. It explained that the expenses on chartering the vessels have been very high in recent years and continuing the charters would be unfavourable towards the company's plan to restructure its fleet.

Nanjing Tanker Corporation (NJTC) is planning to acquire 10 VLCCs and 10 MR tankers that are currently on 10-12 years of time charter contracts. NJTC, the tanker arm of Sinotrans & CSC, explained that the expenses on chartering the vessels have been very high in recent years due to the sluggish tanker shipping market. It added that continuing the charters would be unfavourable towards the company's plan to restructure its fleet. The board of Shanghai-listed NJTC has authorised its subsidiary Nanjing Tanker (Singapore) to spend $467.9m to purchase the vessels from 18 shipowners. The loss-making NJTC is facing a delisting from the Shanghai Stock Exchange as it remained in the red in the first three quarters of this year. Shares of NJTC were suspended in April this year after it announced its third consecutive annual deficit.

Nanjing Tanker Corporation (NJTC) continued to stay in the red in the third quarter, putting the company at a higher risk of a delisting from the Shanghai Stock Exchange. The tanker shipping arm of China's state-owned Sinotrans & CSC posted a net loss of RMB984.71m ($161.6m) in the quarter ended 30 September 2013, compared to a loss of RMB940.61m in the same period of last year. Revenue, however, rose 20.2% year-on-year to RMB5.47bn. NJTC said in a regulatory filing to the stock exchange that it is expecting to post a full year loss in 2013. The company had already recorded full year losses since 2010. Shares of NJTC were suspended in April this year after it announced its third consecutive annual deficit. NJTC attributed the company's dire situation to prolonged depressed freight rates in the tanker shipping market and high operating costs.
