    Otto Marine revenue down 1.3% to US$282.2 million in nine months of 2015

    Otto Marine Limited, a  leading offshore marine company that specializes in building complex offshore support vessels, ship chartering and offers specialized offshore services, has announced their financial results for the three months and for the  nine months ended 30  September 2015.

    The Group posted US$282.2 million in revenue for 9M 2015. This represented a 1.3% decrease year- on-year compared with 9M2014 mainly attrib uted to the decrease in revenue from the Subsea services segment due to lower charter rates despi te higher utilization, and attributed to the  Shipping and Chartering segments due to a reduced fleet size, partially offset by an increase in  shipyard revenue.  Gross profit decreased 41.2% in 9M2015 to US$25.6 mill ion with gross profit margin at 9.1%.

    This  decrease was mainly due to lower margin projects und ertaken by the Shipyard segment, and the  decrease in revenue and increase in depreciation arising from the capitalized dry-docking costs in 2014. Moreover, as the Group’s vessel ownership increased to 34 vessels as at 30 September 2015  compared to 21 Vessels as at 30 September 2014, it w as able offset lower daily charter rates. Thus,  the Group’s gross profit margin for 3Q2015 remained relatively constant at 15.0% compared to 15.4% for 3Q2014. 

    Selling and administrative expenses reduced by 23.1% to US$22.4 million and other expenses  reduced by 57.0% to US$1.8 million for 9M2015. The  former decreased due to the Group’s cost rationalization measures and the latter decreased as a result of the absence of foreign exchange  losses. However, finance costs increased from US$19.1 mill ion in 9M2014 to US$27.8 million in  9M2015. This was mainly due to interest incurred on certain loan facilities drawn down after 1H2014  and the finance costs arising from held-for-sale liabilities. 

    As a result of the above factors, the Group reported  a net loss attributable to shareholders of US$21.4  million for the period 9M2015.  Nonetheless, the Group registered positive operating ca shflow (since FY2012) which saw an increase  of 54.4% to S$89.8 million for 9M2015 with an EBITD A of approximately US$38.2 million.
