The Company provides technical services for drybulk vessels purchased by Maritime Equity Partners LLC (“MEP”), which is managed by a company owned by Peter C. Georgiopoulos, Chairman of the Board of Directors of GS&T.  These services include oversight of crew management, insurance, drydocking, ship operations and financial statement preparation, but do not include chartering services.  The services are provided for a fee of $750 per ship per day plus reimbursement of out-of-pocket costs and will be provided for an initial term of one year.  MEP has the right to cancel provision of services on 60 days’ notice with payment of a one-year termination fee upon a change in control of the Company.  The Company may terminate provision of the services at any time on 60 days’ notice.  Peter C. Georgiopoulos, the Company’s Chairman of the Board, is a minority investor in MEP, and affiliates of Oaktree Capital Management, L.P., of which Stephen A. Kaplan, a director of the Company, is a principal, are majority investors in MEP.

 

On February 28, 2012, the Company closed on an equity offering of 7,500,000 shares of common stock at an offering price of $7.10 per share.  The Company received net proceeds of $49,870 after deducting underwriters’ fees and expenses.

 

2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Principles of consolidation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), which include the accounts of GS&T, its wholly-owned subsidiaries and Baltic Trading, a subsidiary in which the Company owns a majority of the voting interests and exercises control.  All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Basis of presentation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP for interim financial information and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).  In the opinion of management of the Company, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of financial position and operating results have been included in the statements. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted.  These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 (the “2011 10-K”).  The results of operations for the period ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year.

Vessels, net

 

Vessels, net is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Included in vessel costs are acquisition costs directly attributable to the acquisition of a vessel and expenditures made to prepare the vessel for its initial voyage. The Company also capitalizes interest costs for a vessel under construction as a cost which is directly attributable to the acquisition of a vessel. Vessels are depreciated on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives, determined to be 25 years from the date of initial delivery from the shipyard. Depreciation expense for vessels for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 was $33,091 and $31,424, respectively.

 

Depreciation expense is calculated based on cost less the estimated residual scrap value. The costs of significant replacements, renewals and betterments are capitalized and depreciated over the shorter of the vessel’s remaining estimated useful life or the estimated life of the renewal or betterment. Undepreciated cost of any asset component being replaced that was acquired after the initial vessel purchase is written off as a component of vessel operating expense. Expenditures for routine maintenance and repairs are expensed as incurred. Scrap value is estimated by the Company by taking the estimated scrap value of $245/lwt times the weight of the ship in lightweight tons (lwt).

 

Deferred revenue

 

Deferred revenue primarily relates to cash received from charterers prior to it being earned. These amounts are recognized as income when earned. Additionally, deferred revenue includes estimated customer claims mainly due to time charter performance issues. As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company had an accrual of $751 and $762, respectively, related to these estimated customer claims.

 

Voyage expense recognition

 

In time charters, spot market-related time charters and pool agreements, operating costs including crews, maintenance and insurance are typically paid by the owner of the vessel and specified voyage costs such as fuel and port charges are paid by the charterer. There are certain other non-specified voyage expenses such as commissions which are typically borne by the Company. At the inception of a time charter, the Company records the difference between the cost of bunker fuel delivered by the terminating charterer and the bunker fuel sold to the new charterer as a gain or loss within voyage expenses. These differences in bunkers resulted in net gains of $720 and $357 during the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

Noncontrolling interest

 

Net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest during the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 reflects the noncontrolling interest’s share of the net loss of Baltic Trading, a subsidiary of the Company, which owns and employs drybulk vessels in the spot market or on spot market-related time charters.  The spot market represents immediate chartering of a vessel, usually for single voyages.  At March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the noncontrolling interest held a 74.89% economic interest in Baltic Trading while only holding 16.59% of voting power.

 

Income taxes

 

Pursuant to certain agreements, GS&T technically and commercially manages vessels for Baltic Trading, as well as provides technical management of vessels for MEP in exchange for specified fees for these services provided.  These services are performed by Genco Management (USA) Limited (“Genco (USA)”), which has elected to be taxed as a corporation for United States federal income tax purposes.  As such, Genco (USA) is subject to United States federal income tax on its worldwide net income, including the net income derived from providing these services.  Genco (USA) has entered into a cost-sharing agreement with the Company and Genco Ship Management LLC, collectively Manco, pursuant to which Genco (USA) agrees to reimburse Manco for the costs incurred by Genco (USA) for the use of Manco’s personnel and services in connection with the provision of the services for both Baltic Trading and MEP’s vessels.

 

Total revenue earned for these services during the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 was $1,514 and $1,539, respectively, of which $695 and $729, respectively, eliminated upon consolidation.  After allocation of certain expenses, there was taxable income of $593 associated with these activities for the three months ended March 31, 2012.  This resulted in estimated tax expense of $264 for the three months ended March 31, 2012.  After allocation of certain expenses, there was taxable income of $697 associated with these activities for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  This resulted in income tax expense of $364 for the three months ended March 31, 2011.

 

Baltic Trading is subject to income tax on its United States source income.  During the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, Baltic Trading had United States operations which resulted in United States source income of $366 and $1,063, respectively.  Baltic Trading’s United States income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $7.  Baltic Trading’s estimated United Sates income tax benefit for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $5.

Recent accounting pronouncements

 

In May 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-04, “Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards (Topic 820) — Fair Value Measurement” (“ASU 2011-04”), to provide a consistent definition of fair value and ensure that the fair value measurement and disclosure requirements are similar between U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards.  ASU 2011-04 changes certain fair value measurement principles and enhances the disclosure requirements particularly for Level 3 fair value measurements.  This standard was effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011 and is applied on a prospective basis.  The Company has adopted ASU 2011-04 and the impact of adoption is not material to the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

In June 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05, “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220), Presentation of Comprehensive Income” (“ASU 2011-05”), to require an entity to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements.  ASU 2011-05 eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of equity.  The standard does not change the items which must be reported for other comprehensive income, how such items are measured or when they must be reclassified to net income.  This standard was effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011 and was to be applied retrospectively.  The FASB has deferred the requirement to present reclassification adjustments for each component of accumulate other comprehensive income in both net income and other comprehensive income.  Companies are required to either present amounts reclassified out of other comprehensive income on the face of the financial statements or disclose those amounts in the notes to the financial statements.  During the deferral period, there is no requirement to separately present or disclose the reclassification adjustments into net income.  The effective date of this deferral will be consistent with the effective date of ASU 2011-05.  The Company has adopted ASU 2011-05 and disclosed comprehensive income in our condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive (loss) income. This guidance only affects financial statement presentation and has no impact on its consolidated results of operations, financial position and cash flows.

 

3 - SEGMENT INFORMATION

 

The Company determines its operating segments based on the information utilized by the chief operating decision maker to assess performance.  Based on this information, the Company has two operating segments, GS&T and Baltic Trading.  Both GS&T and Baltic Trading are engaged in the ocean transportation of drybulk cargoes worldwide through the ownership and operation of drybulk carrier vessels.  GS&T seeks to deploy its vessels on time charters, spot market-related time charters or in vessel pools trading in the spot market and Baltic Trading seeks to deploy its vessel charters in the spot market, which represents immediate chartering of a vessel, usually for single voyages, or employing vessels on spot market-related time charters.  Segment results are evaluated based on net income.  The accounting policies applied to the reportable segments are the same as those used in the preparation of the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

The following table presents a reconciliation of total voyage revenue from external (third party) customers for the Company’s two operating segments to total consolidated voyage revenue from external customers for the Company for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.

The Genco Avra and Genco Spirit had existing below market time charters at the time of acquisition.  GS&T recorded a liability for time charters acquired of $372 during the second quarter of 2011 upon the delivery of the Genco Avra to its charterer and $205 during the fourth quarter of 2011 upon the delivery of the Genco Spirit to its charterer.  Below market time charters, including those acquired during previous periods, were amortized as an increase to voyage revenue in the amount of $186 and $473 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

Capitalized interest expense associated with newbuilding contracts for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 was $0 and $79, respectively.

7 — NET (LOSS) INCOME PER COMMON SHARE

 

The computation of basic net (loss) income per share is based on the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the year. The computation of diluted net loss (income) per share assumes the vesting of nonvested stock awards (refer to Note 20 — Nonvested Stock Awards), for which the assumed proceeds upon vesting are deemed to be the amount of compensation cost attributable to future services and are not yet recognized using the treasury stock method, to the extent dilutive.  Of the 936,787 nonvested shares outstanding at March 31, 2012 (refer to Note 20 — Nonvested Stock Awards), all are anti-dilutive.  The Company’s diluted net (loss) income per share will also reflect the assumed conversion under the Company’s convertible debt if the impact is dilutive under the “if converted” method. The impact of the shares convertible under the Company’s convertible notes is excluded from the computation of diluted net (loss) income per share when interest expense per common share obtainable upon conversion is greater than basic earnings per share.

 

The components of the denominator for the calculation of basic net (loss) income per share and diluted net (loss) income per share are as follows:

The fair value of the investments is based on quoted market rates.  The fair value of the floating rate debt under the 2007 Credit Facility, $100 Million Term Loan Facility, $253 Million Term Loan Facility and the 2010 Baltic Trading Credit Facility are based on management’s estimate of rates the Company could obtain for similar debt of the same remaining maturities.  Additionally, the Company considers its creditworthiness in determining the fair value of floating rate debt under the credit facilities.  The carrying value approximates the fair market value for these floating rate loans.  The fair value of the convertible senior notes payable represents the market value based on recent transactions of the 2010 Notes at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 without bifurcating the value of the conversion option.  The fair value of the interest rate swaps is the estimated amount the Company would receive to terminate the swap agreements at the reporting date, taking into account current interest rates and the creditworthiness of both the swap counterparty and the Company.  The carrying amounts of the Company’s other financial instruments at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 (principally Due from charterers and Accounts payable and accrued expenses), approximate fair values because of the relatively short maturity of these instruments.

 

The Accounting Standards Codification Subtopic 820-10, “Fair Value Measurements & Disclosures” (“ASC 820-10”), applies to all assets and liabilities that are being measured and reported on a fair value basis.  This guidance enables the reader of the financial statements to assess the inputs used to develop those measurements by establishing a hierarchy for ranking the quality and reliability of the information used to determine fair values. The fair value framework requires the categorization of assets and liabilities into three levels based upon the assumption (inputs) used to price the assets or liabilities. Level 1 provides the most reliable measure of fair value, whereas Level 3 generally requires significant management judgement. The three levels are defined as follows:

 

Level 1: Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2: Observable inputs other than those include in Level 1. For example, quoted prices for similar assets or liabilites in active markets or quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in inactive markets.

Level 3: Unobservable inputs reflecting management’s own assumptions about the inputs used in pricing the asset or liability.

 

As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the fair values of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities are categorized as follows:

The Company holds an investment in the capital stock of Jinhui, which is classified as a long-term investment.  The stock of Jinhui is publicly traded on the Oslo Stock Exchange and is considered a Level 1 item.  The Company’s interest rate derivative instruments are pay-fixed, receive-variable interest rate swaps based on LIBOR.  The Company has elected to use the income approach to value the derivatives, using observable Level 2 market inputs at measurement date and standard valuation techniques to convert future amounts to a single present amount assuming that participants are motivated, but not compelled to transact.  Level 2 inputs for the valuations are limited to quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets (specifically futures contracts on LIBOR for the first two years) and inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (specifically LIBOR cash and swap rates and credit risk at commonly quoted intervals).  Mid-market pricing is used as a practical expedient for fair value measurements.  Refer to Note 11 — Interest Rate Swap Agreements for further information regarding the Company’s interest rate swap agreements.  ASC 820-10 states that the fair value measurement of an asset or liability must reflect the nonperformance risk of the entity and the counterparty. Therefore, the impact of the counterparty’s creditworthiness when in an asset position and the Company’s creditworthiness when in a liability position has also been factored into the fair value measurement of the derivative instruments in an asset or liability position and did not have a material impact on the fair value of these derivative instruments.  As of March 31, 2012, both the counterparty and the Company are expected to continue to perform under the contractual terms of the instruments. Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash are considered Level 1 items as they represent liquid assets with short-term maturities. Floating rate debt is considered to be a Level 2 item as the Company considers the estimate of rates it could obtain for similar debt. The 2010 Notes are publicly traded in the over-the-counter market; however they are not considered to be actively traded. As such, the 2010 Notes are considered to be a Level 2 item.
