Ardmore Shipping Corporation Announces Financial Results For Second Quarter 2013

Vessel Deliveries

On June 7, 2013, the Company took delivery of the Ardmore Seaventure. This vessel is built to the latest eco-design and includes upgrades for further improvements to enhance fuel efficiency. The Ardmore Seaventure began employment on a one-year time charter with Cargill at a rate of $19,500 per day for the first 60 days and $15,100 thereafter. Cargill is an international producer and marketer of food, agricultural, financial and industrial products and services.

Vessel Employment

In July 2013, the Company renewed the time charter for the Ardmore Seafarer at an improved rate of $13,750 per day. In addition, the charter rate includes a performance bonus of up to $250 per day. The new charter is scheduled to expire in July 2014.

On August 3, 2013 following redelivery of the Ardmore Centurion from previous charterers, the Company delivered the vessel to Nordic Womar Pte Ltd to operate it under a third party spot chartering arrangement. The third party spot chartering arrangement does not have a fixed expiration period.

Financing

On April 2, 2013, Ardmore entered into a capital lease agreement (bareboat charter) for the Ardmore Calypso and Ardmore Capella. In connection with the transaction, $17.9 million of outstanding senior debt was repaid in full. The capital lease is scheduled to expire in 2018 and includes a mandatory purchase obligation. The total amount financed under the capital lease arrangement was $31.5 million.

Results for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company had an adjusted EBITDA (see Non-GAAP Measures section below) of $5.5 million, an increase of $2.2 million from the six months ended June 30, 2012. The Company had an adjusted net loss (see Non-GAAP Measures section below) of $0.7 million, or $0.04 basic and diluted loss per share, excluding $0.4 million of fees and expenses incurred in connection with our IPO and $0.2 million of deferred finances fees written off in relation to the repayment of senior loan facilities on two vessels. This compared to an adjusted net loss of $1.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 or $0.10 basic and diluted loss per share.
