Diana Containerships Inc., Q2 & H1 report

Diana Containerships Inc., a global shipping company specializing in the ownership of containerships, reported a net loss of $42.3 million for the second quarter of 2018, compared to net income of $36.5 million for the same period of 2017. The loss for the second quarter of 2018 includes $15.6 million of impairment charges of one vessel and $19.0 million of aggregate loss on sale of three vessels. Net income for the second quarter of 2017 included a gain of $42.2 million, net of related expenses, from a debt write-off, arising from the settlement agreement with respect to the secured loan facility with the Royal Bank of Scotland plc (“RBS”), which was signed on June 30, 2017.

Time charter revenues were $6.3 million for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $5.5 million for the same period of 2017. This increase was mainly the result of increased time charter rates achieved as a result of improved market conditions, and was partially off-set by the decrease in the average number of the Company’s vessels.
Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2018 amounted to $46.2 million, compared to net income of $29.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017. The loss for the six months ended June 30, 2018 includes $15.6 million of impairment charges of one vessel and $16.7 million of aggregate loss on sale of six vessels. The net income for the six months ended June 30, 2017 reflected a gain of $42.2 million, net of related expenses, arising from the RBS loan writeoff.

Time charter revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2018, amounted to $14.3 million, compared to $9.3 million
for the six months ended June 30, 2017.
