GOGL – Fourth Quarter 2020 Results

Share

Golden Ocean Group Limited (NASDAQ: GOGL / OSE: GOGL) (the “Company” or “Golden Ocean”), a leading dry bulk shipping company, today announced its results for the quarter ended December 31, 2020.

Highlights

▪       Net income of $25.4 million and earnings per share of $0.18 for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared with net income of $39.1 million and earnings per share of $0.27 for the third quarter of 2020.
▪       Adjusted EBITDA of $59.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared with $76.7 million for the third quarter of 2020.
▪       Signed the Neptune Declaration on Seafarer Wellbeing and Crew Change.
▪       In December 2020, entered into an agreement to sell the Golden Shea, a Panamax vessel, for $9.6 million to an unrelated third party.
▪       In January 2021, entered into an agreement to sell the Golden Saguenay, a Panamax vessel, for $8.4 million to an unrelated third party.
▪       In February 2021, entered into a Heads of Agreement to acquire 18 modern dry bulk vessels for a total consideration of $752 million.
▪       Reported TCE rates for Capesize and Panamax/Ultramax vessels of $18,214 per day and $12,586 per day, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2020.
▪       Estimated TCE rates for the first quarter of 2021, inclusive of charter coverage and calculated on a load-to-discharge basis, are:
·approximately $18,200 per day contracted for 66% of the available days for Capesize vessels;
·approximately $13,800 per day contracted for 86% of the available days for Panamax vessels

We expect the spot TCEs for the full first quarter of 2021 to be lower than the TCEs currently contracted, due to the impact of ballast days at the end of the first quarter of 2021 as well as current weaker rates.

      Ulrik Andersen, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

"The Company continued to deliver a strong performance in the fourth quarter of 2020, despite volatility in freight rates. Thus far the first quarter in 2021 has been the strongest in recent years, which suggests a tight supply and demand balance in the market and bodes well for the balance of the year.  We expect positive impacts from seasonality as well as a broader rebound in freight demand as the pandemic softens its grip on the global economy. 

Our recently-announced acquisition of 18 large, modern dry bulk vessels significantly increases our exposure to positive market dynamics while also reducing cash break even levels across our fleet.  With a best-in-class fleet focused exclusively on large vessel classes, limited capital expenditure commitments and no debt maturities until 2023, Golden Ocean is very well positioned to generate significant cash flow and create value for our shareholders.”

Överskott för staten i februari 20215.3.2021 09:30:00 CETPressemelding

Överskott för staten i februari 2021 Statens betalningar resulterade i ett överskott på 47,3 miljarder kronor i februari. Riksgäldens prognos var ett överskott på 53,1 miljarder kronor. Att överskottet blev lägre än förväntat förklaras av försenade inbetalningar på grund av tekniska problem hos en ramavtalsbank. Det primära saldot blev 7,8 miljarder kronor lägre än prognosen. Skatteinkomsterna var cirka 1 miljard kronor lägre än i prognos. Men eftersom skatter för 21 miljarder kronor som skulle ha betalats till Riksgälden på månadens sista bankdag blev försenade på grund av tekniska problem hos en ramavtalsbank påverkar inte dessa budgetsaldot för februari utan för mars. Myndigheternas utgifter var cirka 14 miljarder kronor lägre, bland annat på grund av lägre utbetalningar från Socialstyrelsen, SIDA och Kammarkollegiet. Riksgäldens nettoutlåning till myndigheter m.fl. var 1,9 miljarder kronor lägre än prognos. Räntebetalningarna på statsskulden var i linje med prognosen. För tolvmånad

Surplus for Swedish central government in February 20215.3.2021 09:30:00 CETPress release

Surplus for Swedish central government in February 2021 Swedish central government payments resulted in a surplus of SEK 47.3 billion in February. The Debt Office's forecast was a surplus of SEK 53.1 billion. The lower surplus than expected is explained by delayed payments due to technical problems at a framework agreement bank. The primary balance was SEK 7.8 billion lower than forecasted. Tax income were approximately SEK 1 billion lower than calculated. However, since tax incomes for SEK 21 billion that should have been paid to the Debt Office on the last banking day of the month were delayed due to technical problems at a framework agreement bank, this amount does not affect the budget balance for February but for March. Central government expenditure was approximately SEK 14 billion lower than forecasted, mainly due to lower payments from the National Board of Health and Welfare, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency and the Legal, Financial and Administrative S
