Diana Shipping Inc. Reports Financial Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2021


ATHENS, GREECE, August 3, 2021 – Diana Shipping Inc. (NYSE: DSX), (the “Company”), a global shipping company specializing in the ownership of dry bulk vessels, today reported net income of $2.8 million and net income attributed to common stockholders of $1.4 million for the second quarter of 2021. This compares to a net loss of $10.8 million and net loss attributed to common stockholders of $12.2 million, including a $2.6 million impairment loss, reported in the second quarter of 2020.

Time charter revenues were $47.0 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to $41.0 million for the same quarter of 2020. The increase in time charter revenues was mainly due to increased average time charter rates that the Company achieved for its vessels during the quarter. This increase was partly offset by decreased revenues due to decreased ownership days compared to last year, resulting from the sale of vessels.

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2021 amounted to $1.5 million and net loss attributed to common stockholders amounted to $1.4 million. This compares to a net loss of $113.6 million and net loss attributed to common stockholders of $116.5 million, including a $95.7 million impairment loss and $1.1 million loss from sale of vessels, for the same period of 2020. Time charter revenues were $88.1 million for the first half of 2021, compared to $84.7 million for the same period of 2020.

Non-GAAP Measures

(1)          Time charter equivalent rates, or TCE rates, are defined as our time charter revenues less voyage expenses during a period divided by the number of our available days during the period, which is consistent with industry standards.  Voyage expenses include port charges, bunker (fuel) expenses, canal charges and commissions.  TCE is a non-GAAP measure.  TCE rate is a standard shipping industry performance measure used primarily to compare daily earnings generated by vessels on time charters with daily earnings generated by vessels on voyage charters, because charter hire rates for vessels on voyage charters are generally not expressed in per day amounts while charter hire rates for vessels on time charters are generally expressed in such amounts.

(2)          Daily vessel operating expenses, which include crew wages and related costs, the cost of insurance, expenses relating to repairs and maintenance, the costs of spares and consumable stores, tonnage taxes and other miscellaneous expenses, are calculated by dividing vessel operating expenses by ownership days for the relevant period.
