NASSAU, Bahamas, Aug. 11, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ultrapetrol (Bahamas) Limited (Nasdaq:ULTR), an industrial transportation company serving marine transportation needs in three markets (River Business, Offshore Supply Business and Ocean Business), today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

Second Quarter 2011 highlights:

  • Recorded second quarter 2011 revenues of $70.0 million;
  • Recorded adjusted consolidated EBITDA of $12.7 million in the second quarter of 2011;1
  • Recorded adjusted consolidated EBITDA of $24.6 million in the first six months of 2011;
  • Recorded total adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share of $(6.0) million and $(0.20), respectively, in the second quarter of 2011, which excludes the effect of a $(1.0) million provision for deferred taxes on an unrealized foreign exchange rate gains on U.S. dollar-denominated debt of our Brazilian subsidiary in the Offshore Supply Business; 2
  • Took delivery in China of our eighth PSV, UP Jasper, currently being positioned to the North Sea;
  • Continued as planned with the construction of the Company's PSV new building program in the Offshore Supply Business.

2 For a detailed explanation of these adjustments and other adjustments elsewhere in this release, see "Overview of Financial Results" and the tables included under the Supplemental Information section of this release.

Felipe Menéndez, Ultrapetrol's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our long-term investment strategy of investing in our River and Offshore businesses compounded by the sale of our remaining capesize vessels in 2010 has put us on an strong path of growth. In both our River Business and Offshore Business demand is strengthening and market rates are increasing and we believe our strategic advantages are providing us with long term size and technology leadership in the markets in which we operate.

"In our River Business, we have witnessed in 2011 a significant growth in demand for river transportation. The seeded area directly affecting the Hidrovia Region has grown close to 9% and estimates indicate that a similar growth may occur next year. Iron ore production has exceeded historical levels and new mines are expected to commence production in 2012. The prices of agricultural and mining commodities are propelling new investment and growth which we expect will add demand for transportation in the river system. With over 35% of the existing capacity and the growth initiatives which we have developed over the last 4 years we are ideally positioned to capitalize on this growth. We have continued to grow our capacity through the production of tank and dry jumbo barges in our Punta Alvear Yard, the most modern of its kind in South America, and have successfully managed to supply some third party orders while continuing to reengine our line pushboats to capture fuel efficiencies that we expect will substantially change our river EBITDA margins in the future."

Mr. Menéndez continued, "The expansion of our Offshore Supply Business continued in the second quarter, as Ultrapetrol operated seven PSVs for the first time for an entire quarter and took delivery of its eighth PSV, UP Jasper. The UP Jasper is in the process of being repositioned to the North Sea where we expect the vessel to commence operations in September 2011 and take advantage of the region's strong rate environment. We look forward to taking delivery of four additional PSVs that are under construction which have expected deliveries over the next 18 months. Our medium and long term view is that the offshore supply services market will strengthen as the extraordinary demand from Brazil takes a larger share of the world's available capacity. In our Ocean Business, the two container-feeder vessel operation that we started in 2010 has exceeded our expectations. By offering bi-weekly service we have consolidated our presence in the region and we are integrating a chain of logistical services for our customers that we believe will set us a step away from competition."

Mr. Menéndez concluded, "We expect that in 2012 and beyond our results will more fully reflect increased volumes carried from our expanded fleet as well as the efficiency initiatives that are all part of the investment program we have implemented over the past 4 years."

Overview of Financial Results

Total revenues for the second quarter 2011 were $70.0 million, as compared with $60.6 million in the same period of 2010.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter 2011 was $12.7 million, as compared with $17.6 million, in the same period of 2010. For a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to cash flows from operating activities, please see the tables at the end of this release.

Adjusted net loss for the second quarter of 2011 was $(6.0) million or $(0.20) per share, which excluded a $(1.0) million provision or $(0.04) per share, for unrealized foreign exchange rate gains on U.S. dollar-denominated debt of our Brazilian subsidiary in the Offshore Supply Business. Net loss for the second quarter 2011 was $(7.0) million or $(0.24) per share, as compared with net income of $0.7 million, or $0.02 per share, during the same period in 2010.

Len Hoskinson, Ultrapetrol's Chief Financial Officer, said, "Our PSVs on charter to Petrobras in Brasil are significant cash flow producers and our River Business is benefitting from higher volumes of agricultural and mineral cargoes. We are confident that the shortfall of cargo carried in the second quarter due to a temporary blockage of the High Parana section of the river will be picked up in the 2H 2011. Our 2011/2012 Capex Program is fully funded and we are conservatively balanced with long-term credit facilities that match the earnings of our local vessels."

Business Segment Highlights

River

Despite a temporary blockage of the High Parana river which affected the activity of over 140 of our barges of 48 days causing a reduction of over 195,000 tons and in excess of $6.5 million in revenues, the River Business experienced an 8% increase in the volume of cargo loaded in the second quarter of 2011 as compared with the same period of 2010.

Second quarter 2011 River segment adjusted EBITDA was $5.9 million versus $10.4 million in the same period of 2010. For a reconciliation of segment adjusted EBITDA to operating profit (loss), please see the tables at the end of this release.

In its latest report issued in April 2011, the USDA estimates that the soybean crop in Paraguay will increase to 8.1 million tons in 2011, a growth of 12.5% year on year. The increase reflects a 10-year compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% in Paraguay's soybean production and seeded areas. The steady growth represents an important demand driver for Ultrapetrol's River Business. The company is adding capacity and implementing various margin-expansion initiatives to profitably capitalize on the growing demand.

The Company's barge building shipyard, which is the most modern in South America, has been in operation since the first quarter of 2010. We believe this shipyard will allow the Company to meet the incremental demand growth resulting from the projected increases in volumes of liquids, soybeans and iron ore produced in the region, as well as the need to replace a large proportion of the river system fleet within the next 5 years.  The Company also built and delivered six jumbo barges for a third party in its Punta Alvear Yard, and could build further barges for third parties in the future. The Company has successfully continued the re-engining and re-powering program that aims to convert engines on eleven of its main pushboats from diesel to heavy fuel consuming. The first one started operations on May 22, 2010 and the second one was completed at the end of 2010. The next two in the program are expected to be delivered during the third quarter of 2011. We expect this program to lead to substantial savings in fuel expense and to an increase in tow size and navigation speed. We have further enhanced our pushing capacity by adding three second-hand pushboats to our fleet; one large and two smaller in capacity.

Offshore Supply

In the Offshore Supply Business, we operated seven vessels in the second quarter of 2011, and took delivery in China of the UP Jasper only on June 10, 2011. The adjusted EBITDA generated by the Offshore Supply segment during the second quarter of 2011 was $4.7 million, or 8% lower than the $5.1 million generated in the same period of 2010. For a reconciliation of segment adjusted EBITDA to operating profit (loss), please see the tables at the end of this release.

Despite having experienced 20 more offhire days due to scheduled drydocks and repairs in the second quarter of 2011 than in the same period of 2010, total revenues from the Offshore Supply Business increased by 12% period on period. This increase was primarily attributable to the operation of our UP Turquoise for the full second quarter; partially offset by the scheduled drydocking of our UP Topazio and UP Safira. Similarly, during the quarter we experienced higher operating costs mainly due to the revaluation of the real against the US dollar, a tendency which is likely to continue.

As planned, Ultrapetrol will continue the construction of the four remaining PSVs that will be added to the fleet, currently being built in India.

The Company believes that the Brazilian market will grow substantially due to the support of Petrobras' aggressive capital expenditure plans, while the activity in the North Sea has increased. In addition, Ultrapetrol's fleet has the advantage of being very modern and technologically capable of supporting deep sea oil drilling.

Ocean

The Ocean segment generated adjusted EBITDA of $1.6 million in the second quarter of 2011 as compared to adjusted EBITDA of $3.3 million in the same period of 2010. For a reconciliation of segment adjusted EBITDA to operating profit (loss), please see the tables at the end of this release.

The 27% increase in revenues (from $12.9 million to $16.4 million) is mainly attributable to two factors: 1) the operation of M.V. Asturiano and M.V. Argentino for the full second quarter of 2011 as opposed to less than two months of operations of the M.V. Asturiano in the same period of 2010; and 2) the effect of the adjustment in the hire of our Product Tanker fleet to reflect increased manning costs. These effects were partly offset by the sales of our Capesize vessels Princess Marisol and Princess Katherine in May and September 2010.

The Company operated a total of four vessels in its Product Tanker fleet in the second quarter of 2011 (Miranda I, Amadeo, Alejandrina, and Austral) which continue to be employed in the South American coastal trade on charters with oil majors that operate in the region.

After the positioning of the M.V. Argentino in January 2011, we successfully employed our two container feeder vessels, M.V. Asturiano and M.V. Argentino for the full second quarter at better than anticipated utilization rates.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Ultrapetrol believes that the disclosed non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") measures such as adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and any other adjustments thereto, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP measures, are useful for investors to use in evaluating the liquidity of the company. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of liquidity prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to segment operating profit and cash flow from operations is presented in the tables that accompany this press release.
