Stolt-Nielsen Limited reported unaudited results for the first quarter ended February 28, 2013. 

 

Net profit attributable to SNL shareholders in the first quarter was $1.5 million, with revenue of $519.4 million, compared with $18.2 million, with revenue of $510.9 million, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2012.


 
Highlights for the first quarter of 2013, compared with the fourth quarter of 2012, were:
 

  • Stolt Tankers reported an operating loss of $2.8 million, compared with an operating profit of $2.6 million, reflecting lower revenue and higher operating costs, and $2.0 million of one-time charges
  • The Stolt Tankers Joint Service Sailed-in Time-Charter Index[1] was 1.12, down from 1.14.
  • Stolthaven Terminals reported an operating profit of $23.3 million, up from $22.9 million, as overall market conditions remained strong.  Current results reflect one-time net gains of $6.9 million, compared with one-time net gains   of $7.4 million in the fourth quarter.
  • Stolt Tank Containers reported an operating profit of $15.2 million, down from $17.5 million, reflecting increases in both ocean and inland freight rates. The current quarter also included a $1.3 million tax provision relating to prior years.
  • SSF reported an operating loss of $0.1 million in the first quarter, compared with a fourth-quarter operating loss of $2.0 million, excluding a $6.5 million fair value gain on the acquisition of the Acuidoro farm.
  • Stolt-Nielsen Gas reported a loss of $1.2 million on its investment in Avance Gas Holding Ltd. (AGHL), compared with equity income of $0.1 million in the fourth quarter, as conditions in the LPG transportation market weakened.


Commenting on the Company's results, Mr. Niels G. Stolt-Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer of Stolt-Nielsen Limited, said, "Stolt-Nielsen Limited's poor first-quarter results were largely attributable to a loss at Stolt Tankers, where overall market conditions remain weak.  Higher trading and operating expenses further depressed tanker earnings this quarter.  Both Stolthaven and Stolt Tank Containers continue to perform well, though STC's operating results were down modestly from the prior quarter due to higher ocean freight, inland haulage and depot costs.  Stolt Sea Farm reported a slight loss for the quarter, though performance improved from the prior period, as turbot prices have begun to strengthen...Any substantial improvement in Stolt-Nielsen Limited's performance is dependent upon a turnaround in the parcel tanker market, which, in turn, depends in part on the strength of the global economy.  As stated earlier, we expect 2013 to be a challenging year for Stolt Tankers."
