OSG“痛苦”有增无减

     由于国债增长到22.4亿美元,美国大型油轮公司海外船舶控股集团(OSG)已经连续第十二个季度出现亏损,债务增长至22.4亿美元。


     这家纽约上市公司称到3月31日为止,净额赤字已达3481万美元,去年第一季度净额赤字为3455万美元。
 

      第一季度总收入有所增长,达2.9237亿美元,去年为2.6366亿美元。然而由于燃料价格持续上涨,第一季度成本费用从去年同季2.895亿美元增长到了3.16亿美元。
 

       公司也特意指出了值得肯定的一面:等价期租租金收入2140万美元,同比增长4%。
 

      超大型油船(suezmaxes 船与美国国旗船)租金收入的增长,大大扭转了小型油船的低收入状态。
 

      随着公司不断扩张,公司提出了更高的即期汇率,其旗下船队产品的收入也增加了660万美元。

      

      执行总裁莫顿·安岑说,虽然我们的国际国旗区段一直疲软不稳,但是2011年下半年却不断发展进步,我们相信这只是一个周期,而我们不过是暂时处于最底部而已。
 

      安岑同时补充说,美国国旗船贸易,以及LNG和FSO油船贸易为公司带来了令人满意的收入。
 

       安岑称公司一直把重心放在削减陆上成本,降低燃料消耗,提高资金流动性等问题上。
他补充说,目前环境极不稳定,我们会采取循序稳步的方式,继续进行兼并收购工作,寻求贸易机会,建立新的工程项目。
 

       这一季度,公司一般开支和企业管理费方面共开销2110万美元,减少了330万美元,主要是因为员工数量减少,员工的补偿和福利开销也随之减少。
 

       公司总债务出现增长,截至2011年12月31日,总债务为20.7亿美元,现增至22.4亿美元。


Pain goes on for OSG
US tanker owner Overseas Shipholding Group (OSG) has logged its twelfth consecutive quarterly
loss as debt rose to $2.24bn.
 

The New York-listed company said the net deficit to 31 March was $34.81m, from $34.55m in the
same three months of 2011.
 

Revenue in the first quarter was $292.37m, against $263.66m, but costs increased to $316m from
$289.5m as bunker prices continued to exert pressure.
 

The owner accentuated the positives: time charter equivalent (TCE) earnings rose 4% to $214m,
in line with 559 extra revenue days as it took delivery of new ships.
 

Earnings improved for VLCCs, suezmaxes and US-flagged ships, more than offsetting lower
profit from smaller crude tankers.
 

Its products fleet produced $6.6m more in earnings as it expanded and MRs bagged slightly higher
spot rates.
 

CEO Morten Arntzen said: "Rates in our international flag segments continue to be weak and
volatile, but have improved from the last six months of 2011, which we believe was the bottom of
the tanker cycle.”
 

He added that there had been satisfying contributions from the US-flagged ships, plus the LNG
and FSO businesses.
 

Arntzen said the focus remained on cutting onshore costs, reducing fuel consumption and
developing initiatives to boost liquidity.
 

He added: “In this volatile environment, we will continue our patient approach to acquisitions,
charter-in opportunities and newbuilding projects."
 

It cut general and administrative expenses by $3.3m to $21.1m over the quarter, mainly as a result
of reducing compensation and benefits as staff numbers were lowered.
 

Total debt was $2.24bn, up from $2.07bn as of 31 December, 2011.
