Stocks in this article: ISH

International Shipholding Corporation (NYSE: ISH) today announced the financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Second Quarter 2012 Highlights

  • Reported adjusted net income of $1.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, excluding non-cash losses of $1.1 million
  • Purchased the Jones Act Molten Sulphur Carrier previously on lease
  • Declared a second quarter dividend of $0.25 per share payable on September 4, 2012 to shareholders of record as of August 16, 2012

Net Income

The Company reported net income of $704,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2012, which included non-cash transaction losses and out of period adjustments totaling $1.1 million. The non-cash transaction losses consisted of deferred gain recognition and currency exchange losses attributed to the yen denominated loan facility. For the comparable three months ended June 30, 2011, the Company reported net income of $2.8 million which included a non-cash currency exchange loss of $1.9 million also attributed to the yen denominated loan facility.

Mr. Niels M. Johnsen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our results for the second quarter were negatively affected by the impact of depressed drybulk shipping markets. However, as newbuilding vessels are absorbed into the world fleet, as older vessels are scrapped and as the newbuilding order book is reduced, the drybulk shipping markets should improve. In the meantime, in this challenging environment, our longstanding established contracting strategy of medium and long term charters will continue to provide a predictable solid foundation for our revenue.”

“As we further pursue our strategy of growing our fleet in an accretive manner, we continue to provide shareholders with value through our dividend policy. For the second quarter, the Board declared a dividend payment of $0.25, in line with our 2012 dividend target of $1.00 per share.”
