Summary of Third Quarter and Other Recent Significant Events
Below is a summary of the average daily Time Charter Equivalent ("TCE") revenue (see Non-IFRS Measures section below) and duration of contracted pool voyages and time charters for the Company's vessels thus far in the fourth quarter of 2020 as of the date hereof (See footnotes to "Other operating data" table below for the definition of daily TCE revenue):
Total
PoolAverage daily TCE revenue% of Days
LR2$18,25051 %
LR1$12,50063 %
MR$11,00048 %
Handymax$8,50047 %

Below is a summary of the average daily TCE revenue earned by the Company's vessels in each of the pools during the third quarter of 2020:
PoolAverage daily TCE revenue
LR2$19,131
LR1$17,632
MR$13,530
Handymax$9,899
The Company has committed financing to increase liquidity by approximately $63.9 million, which includes:
$47.1 million from the refinancing of eight vessels (after the repayment of existing debt)
$16.8 million from the drawdown of financing for scrubbers that have been previously paid for and installed (i.e. there are no additional payments needed in order to drawdown these funds)
These funds will be drawn down in the coming weeks
The Company is also in discussions with financial institutions to further increase liquidity by up to $75 million from the refinancing of 11 vessels.
In addition to the above, the Company has $44.2 million of additional liquidity available (after the repayment of existing debt) from previously announced financings that have been committed. These drawdowns are expected to occur at varying points in the future as several of these financings are tied to scrubber installations on the Company’s vessels.
In the third quarter of 2020, the Company repurchased $52.3 million face value of its Convertible Notes due 2022 at an average price of $894.12 per $1,000 principal amount, or $46.7 million.
In September 2020, the Company acquired an aggregate of 1,170,000 of its common shares at an average price of $11.18 per share for a total of $13.1 million.
In September 2020, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a new Securities Repurchase Program to purchase up to an aggregate of $250 million of securities which, in addition to the Company's common shares, currently consist of the Convertible Notes due 2022 and Senior Notes due 2025 (NYSE: SBBA). The aforementioned repurchases of common stock and our convertible notes were executed under the previous securities repurchase program. This program has since been terminated and any future purchases of the Company's securities will be made under the new $250 million securities repurchase program.

In September 2020, the Company took delivery of a scrubber-fitted MR product tanker, STI Maximus, under an eight-year bareboat charter agreement. The leasehold interest in this vessel was acquired as part of the transaction with Trafigura Maritime Logistics Pte. Ltd. (the “Trafigura Transaction”) that was announced in September 2019. The bareboat lease has similar terms and conditions as the other leased vessels in the Trafigura Transaction.
Diluted Weighted Number of Shares
Diluted earnings per share is determined using the if-converted method. Under this method, the Company assumes that its Convertible Notes due 2022, which were issued in May and July 2018, were converted into common shares at the beginning of each period and the interest and non-cash amortization expense associated with these notes of $3.4 million and $11.0 million, respectively, during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 were not incurred. Conversion is not assumed if the results of this calculation are anti-dilutive.
For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company's basic weighted average number of shares were 54,905,361 and 54,800,402, respectively. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company's diluted weighted average number of shares were 55,850,026 and 56,516,982 (which includes the potentially dilutive impact of unvested shares of restricted stock and excludes the impact of the Convertible Notes due 2022), respectively, and 60,486,468 and 61,578,016, respectively, under the if-converted method. The Company's earnings per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was calculated under the if-converted method as the result of this calculation was dilutive. The Company's diluted loss per share for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was calculated using the basic weighted average number of shares outstanding, as the calculation using both diluted weighted average shares outstanding and under the if-converted method were anti-dilutive.
Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Since the beginning of calendar year 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 that originated in China and that has spread to most developed nations of the world has resulted in numerous actions taken by governments and governmental agencies in an attempt to mitigate the spread of the virus. These measures have resulted in a significant reduction in global economic activity and extreme volatility in the global financial and commodities markets (including oil).
While the reduction of economic activity significantly reduced global demand for oil and refined petroleum products, the extreme volatility in the oil markets and the steep contango that developed in the prices of oil and refined petroleum products in March 2020 resulted in record increases in spot TCE rates during the second quarter of 2020 as an abundance of arbitrage and floating storage opportunities opened up. These market dynamics led to a build up of global oil and refined petroleum product inventories during that time period. In June 2020, the underlying oil markets stabilized and these excess inventories began to unwind which, along with customary seasonal weakness, led to a reduction in spot TCE rates through the third quarter of 2020.
We expect that the COVID-19 virus will continue to cause volatility in the commodities markets. The scale and duration of these circumstances is unknowable but could have a material impact on our earnings, cash flow and financial condition for the remainder of 2020 and beyond. An estimate of the impact on our results of operations and financial condition cannot be made at this time.
$250 Million Securities Repurchase Program
In May 2015, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a Securities Repurchase Program to purchase up to an aggregate of $250 million of the Company's securities which, in addition to its common shares, currently consist of its Senior Notes due 2025 (NYSE: SBBA), which were issued in May 2020, and Convertible Notes due 2022, which were issued in May and July 2018.
Between July 1, 2020 and September 7, 2020, the Company repurchased $52.3 million face value of its Convertible Notes due 2022 at an average price of $894.12 per $1,000 principal amount, or $46.7 million.
In September 2020, the Company acquired an aggregate of 1,170,000 of its common shares at an average price of $11.18 per share for a total of $13.1 million. The repurchased shares are being held as treasury shares.
In September 2020, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a new Securities Repurchase Program to purchase up to an aggregate of $250 million of the Company's securities. The aforementioned repurchases of common stock and our convertible notes were executed under the previous securities repurchase program which has since been terminated and any future purchases of the Company's securities will be made under the new $250 million securities repurchase program.

(1) In July 2020, the Company drew an aggregate of $3.3 million under the scrubber portion of its $251.4 million credit facility with ING Bank N.V. to partially finance the purchase and installation of scrubbers on two MRs and one LR2 that are currently part of this arrangement. The drawdowns of approximately $1.1 million per vessel bear interest at LIBOR plus a margin of 1.95%. One MR will be repaid in seven quarterly principal payments of approximately $0.1 million with the balance due upon maturity in June 2022. The other two vessels will be repaid in two quarterly principal payments of approximately $0.7 million in aggregate with the balance due upon maturity in March 2021.
(2) In July 2020, the Company drew $1.6 million from its upsized ABN / SEB Credit Facility to partially finance the purchase and installation of a scrubber on one of its vessels. The upsized portion of this facility matures in June 2023, bears interest at LIBOR plus a margin of 2.60% per annum and is expected to be repaid in equal quarterly installments of approximately $0.1 million per vessel, with a balloon payment due at maturity.
(3) In September 2020, the Company drew $24.9 million under its BNPP Sinosure Credit Facility to partially finance the purchase and installation of scrubbers on 13 vessels. This borrowing is collateralized by one of its LR2 product tankers which was previously financed under the KEXIM Credit Facility. The Company repaid the outstanding debt of $16.2 million on the KEXIM Credit Facility related to this vessel as part of this transaction.
A total of approximately $91.9 million has been drawn and there is $45.7 million of remaining availability under the BNPP Sinosure Credit Facility. Each drawdown is split evenly into two facilities, (i) a commercial facility (the "Commercial Facility"), and (ii) a Sinosure facility (the "Sinosure Facility"), which is being funded by the lenders under the Commercial Facility and insured by the China Export & Credit Insurance Corporation ("Sinosure").  The BNPP Sinosure Credit Facility is split into 70 tranches each of which represent the lesser of 85% of the purchase and installation price of 70 scrubbers, or $1.9 million per scrubber (not to exceed 65% of the fair market value of the collateral vessels). The Sinosure Facility and the Commercial Facility bear interest at LIBOR plus a margin of 1.80% and 2.80% per annum, respectively. The remaining availability under this loan facility is available for en bloc drawdowns on December 15, 2020 and March 15, 2021. The Sinosure Facility is expected to be repaid in 10 equal semi-annual installments and the Commercial Facility is expected to be repaid at the final maturity date of the facility, or October 2025.
(4) In September 2020 the Company drew $43.7 million from its 2020 $225.0 Million Credit Facility to refinance the existing debt on two LR2s that were previously financed under the CMBFL Lease Financing arrangement. The Company repaid $54.0 million on the CMBFL Lease Financing arrangement as part of this transaction. In connection with this repayment, approximately $2.0 million was released from restricted cash that was previously held in a deposit account under the terms and conditions of the CMBFL Lease Financing Arrangement.
In October 2020, the Company drew down $23.9 million from its 2020 $225.0 Million Credit Facility to refinance the existing debt on an LR2 product tanker that was previously financed under the CSSC Lease Financing arrangement. The Company repaid $27.8 million (including a 2% prepayment fee) on the CSSC Lease Financing arrangement as part of this transaction.
The remaining availability under the 2020 $225.0 Million Credit Facility is expected to be used to refinance the existing debt on two of the Company's vessels and scrubbers on two LR2s. This facility has a final maturity of five years from the closing date of the loan, bears interest at LIBOR plus a margin, and is expected to be repaid in equal quarterly installments of approximately $0.6 million per vessel per quarter with a balloon payment due at maturity.  The remaining terms and conditions, including financial covenants, are similar to the Company’s existing credit facilities.
(5) In July 2020, the Company drew an aggregate of $9.4 million on these agreements to partially finance the purchase and installation of scrubbers on five vessels as follows: (i) $1.8 million on one vessel under the BCFL Lease Financing (LR2s) arrangement; (ii) $1.9 million on one vessel under the BCFL Lease Financing (MRs) arrangement; and (iii) $5.7 million on three vessels under the $116.0 Million Lease Financing arrangement. Each agreement will be for a fixed term of three years at the rate of up to $1,910 per vessel per day to be allocated to principal and interest.
(6) In August 2020, the Company drew down an aggregate of $1.6 million from its upsized lease financing agreement with CSSC to partially finance the purchase and installation of scrubbers on one of the Company’s vessels. The upsized portion of the lease financing bears interest at LIBOR plus a margin of 3.8% per annum, matures two years from the date of the drawdown and will be repaid in monthly installment payments of approximately $0.5 million in aggregate.
(7) In September 2020, the Company executed an agreement with CMB Financial Leasing Co., Ltd to sell and leaseback two MR product tankers. The aggregate borrowing amount under the arrangement was $45.4 million, which was drawn in September 2020. A portion of the proceeds were utilized to repay $30.1 million of the outstanding indebtedness relating to these two vessels under the 2017 Credit Facility.
Under the agreement, each vessel is subject to a seven year bareboat charter agreement. The lease financing bears interest at LIBOR plus a margin of 3.20% and is expected to be repaid in 28 equal quarterly repayments of approximately $0.4 million per vessel. The Company has purchase options to re-acquire each of the subject vessels during the bareboat charter period, with the first of such options exercisable on the third anniversary date from the delivery date of the respective vessel.

This transaction is being accounted for as a financing transaction under IFRS 9 as the transaction does not qualify as a ‘sale’ under IFRS 15 given the Company’s right to repurchase the asset during the lease period. Accordingly, no gain or loss is recorded, and the Company will continue to recognize the vessel as an asset and recognize a financial liability (i.e. debt) for the consideration received (similar to the Company’s other sale and leaseback transactions).
(8) In September 2020, the Company took delivery of a scrubber-fitted MR product tanker (STI Maximus) under an eight-year bareboat lease. The leasehold interest in this vessel was acquired as part of the Trafigura Transaction and a $35.2 million lease liability was recorded at the commencement date of these leases, which is being accounted for as a lease liability under IFRS 16.
(9) Between July 1, 2020 and September 7, 2020, the Company repurchased $52.3 million face value of its Convertible Notes due 2022 at an average price of $894.12 per $1,000 principal amount, or $46.7 million.
Set forth below are the estimated expected future principal repayments on the Company's outstanding indebtedness as of September 30, 2020, which includes principal amounts due under secured credit facilities, Convertible Notes due 2022, lease financing arrangements, the Senior Notes due 2025, and lease liabilities under IFRS 16 (which also include actual payments made during the fourth quarter of 2020 and through November 4, 2020):

Explanation of Variances on the Third Quarter of 2020 Financial Results Compared to the Third Quarter of 2019
For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded a net loss of $20.2 million compared to a net loss of $45.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The following were the significant changes between the two periods:
TCE revenue, a Non-IFRS measure, is vessel revenues less voyage expenses (including bunkers and port charges). TCE revenue is included herein because it is a standard shipping industry performance measure used primarily to compare period-to-period changes in a shipping company's performance irrespective of changes in the mix of charter types (i.e., spot voyages, time charters, and pool charters), and it provides useful information to investors and management. The following table sets forth TCE revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019:

For the three months ended September 30,
In thousands of U.S. dollars20202019
Vessel revenue$177,250 $136,067 
Voyage expenses(592)(2,055)
TCE revenue$176,658 $134,012 

TCE revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2020 increased by $42.6 million to $176.7 million, from $134.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Overall average TCE revenue per day increased to $15,100 per day during the three months ended September 30, 2020, from $13,560 per day during the three months ended September 30, 2019. This increase was primarily the result of relative strength in the larger LR2 and LR1 vessel classes as floating storage contracts, increased light distillate volumes to the far east, and increased arbitrage opportunities drove demand for these types of vessels.
The increase in TCE revenue in the third quarter of 2020 as compared to the third quarter of 2019 was also affected by an increase in the number of the Company's vessels to an average of 134.1 operating vessels during the three months ended September 30, 2020 from an average of 119.7 operating vessels during the three months ended September 30, 2019. This increase was the result of the Trafigura Transaction, whereby the Company acquired the leasehold interests in 19 vessels (11 MRs, four LR2s, and four MRs then under construction). Three of the MRs acquired that were then under construction were delivered in the first quarter of 2020 and one of the MRs was delivered in September 2020.
Vessel operating costs for the three months ended September 30, 2020 increased by $14.8 million to $85.8 million, from $71.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. This increase was primarily due to the Trafigura Transaction whereby the Company acquired the leasehold interests in 19 vessels in September 2019 (11 MRs, four LR2s, and four MRs then under construction). Three of the MRs acquired that were then under construction were delivered in the first quarter of 2020 and thus operated for the entirety of the third quarter of 2020 and one MR was delivered in September 2020.
Vessel operating costs per day increased to $6,950 per day for the three months ended September 30, 2020 from $6,449 per day for the three months ended September 30, 2019. This increase was largely driven by the impact of the implementation of worldwide travel restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in the extension and prolongation of the crew contracts on many of the Company's vessels. During the third quarter of 2020, the Company incurred increased travel costs and crew wages as the seafarers impacted by these restrictions were repatriated and awarded extended stay bonuses. Additionally, certain repairs and maintenance expenditures, along with purchases of spares and stores increased during the third quarter of 2020 as the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020 resulted in delays in the procurement and delivery of necessary supplies.
Depreciation expense - owned or sale leaseback vessels for the three months ended September 30, 2020 increased by $4.0 million to $49.4 million, from $45.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The increase was due to the Company's drydock, scrubber and ballast water treatment system installations that have taken place over the preceding 12-month period. Depreciation expense in future periods is expected to increase as the Company continues the installation of ballast water treatment systems and/or scrubbers on certain of its vessels in 2020 and beyond. The Company expects to depreciate the majority of the cost of this equipment over each vessel's remaining useful life.
Depreciation expense - right of use assets for the three months ended September 30, 2020 increased by $5.9 million to $12.2 million from $6.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Depreciation expense - right of use assets reflects the straight-line depreciation expense recorded under IFRS 16 - Leases. Right of use asset depreciation expense increased as a result of the Trafigura Transaction. Three of the MRs acquired that were then under construction were delivered in the first quarter of 2020 and one MR was delivered at the end of September 2020. All of the vessels acquired as part of the Trafigura Transaction are being accounted for as right of use assets under IFRS 16 - Leases. The right of use asset depreciation for these vessels is approximately $0.2 million per MR per month and $0.3 million per LR2 per month. In addition to the leasehold interests acquired as part of the Trafigura Transaction, the Company also had three MRs and five Handymax leases that were accounted for under IFRS 16 during the third quarter of 2020. The bareboat charters on one of these Handymax vessels expired in July 2020.
General and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2020, increased by $0.6 million to $15.9 million, from $15.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. This increase was primarily due to the growth in the Company's fleet resulting from the Trafigura Transaction.
Financial expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2020 decreased by $7.7 million to $35.2 million, from $42.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The decrease was primarily driven by significant

decreases in LIBOR rates, which underpin all of the Company's variable rate borrowings, and which have collapsed since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

(1)
See Non-IFRS Measures section below.
(2)
Freight rates are commonly measured in the shipping industry in terms of time charter equivalent per day (or TCE per day), which is calculated by subtracting voyage expenses, including bunkers and port charges, from vessel revenue and dividing the net amount (time charter equivalent revenues) by the number of revenue days in the period. Revenue days are the number of days the vessel is owned, finance leased or chartered-in less the number of days the vessel is off-hire for drydock and repairs.
(3)
Vessel operating costs per day represent vessel operating costs divided by the number of operating days during the period. Operating days are the total number of available days in a period with respect to the owned, finance leased or bareboat chartered-in vessels, before deducting available days due to off-hire days and days in drydock. Operating days is a measurement that is only applicable to our owned, finance leased or bareboat chartered-in vessels, not our time chartered-in vessels.

Non-IFRS Measures
Reconciliation of IFRS Financial Information to Non-IFRS Financial Information
This press release describes time charter equivalent revenue, or TCE revenue, adjusted net income or loss, and adjusted EBITDA, which are not measures prepared in accordance with IFRS ("Non-IFRS" measures). The Non-IFRS measures are presented in this press release as we believe that they provide investors and other users of our financial statements, such as our lenders, with a means of evaluating and understanding how the Company's management evaluates the Company's operating performance. These Non-IFRS measures should not be considered in isolation from, as substitutes for, or superior to financial measures prepared in accordance with IFRS.
The Company believes that the presentation of TCE revenue, adjusted net income or loss with adjusted earnings per share, basic and diluted, and adjusted EBITDA are useful to investors or other users of our financial statements, such as our lenders, because they facilitate the comparability and the evaluation of companies in the Company’s industry. In addition, the Company believes that TCE revenue, adjusted net income or loss with adjusted earnings per share, basic and diluted, and adjusted EBITDA are useful in evaluating its operating performance compared to that of other companies in the Company’s industry. The Company’s definitions of TCE revenue, adjusted net income or loss with adjusted earnings per share, basic and diluted, and adjusted EBITDA may not be the same as reported by other companies in the shipping industry or other industries.
TCE revenue, on a historical basis, is reconciled above in the section entitled "Explanation of Variances on the Third Quarter of 2020 Financial Results Compared to the Third Quarter of 2019". The Company has not provided a reconciliation of forward-looking TCE revenue because the most directly comparable IFRS measure on a forward-looking basis is not available to the Company without unreasonable effort.

Forward-Looking Statements

Matters discussed in this press release may constitute forward‐looking statements. The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides safe harbor protections for forward‐looking statements in order to encourage companies to provide prospective information about their business. Forward‐looking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events or performance, and underlying assumptions and other statements, which are other than statements of historical facts. The Company desires to take advantage of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and is including this cautionary statement in connection with this safe harbor legislation. The words "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "intend," "plan," "target," "project," "likely," "may," "will," "would," "could" and similar expressions identify forward‐looking statements.

The forward‐looking statements in this press release are based upon various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including without limitation, management’s examination of historical operating trends, data contained in the Company’s records and other data available from third parties. Although management believes that these assumptions were reasonable when made, because these assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond the Company’s control, there can be no assurance that the Company will achieve or accomplish these expectations, beliefs or projections. The Company undertakes no obligation, and specifically declines any obligation, except as required by law, to publicly update or revise any forward‐looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

In addition to these important factors, other important factors that, in the Company’s view, could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward‐looking statements include unforeseen liabilities, future capital expenditures, revenues, expenses, earnings, synergies, economic performance, indebtedness, financial condition, losses, future prospects, business and management strategies for the management, length and severity of the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, including its effect on demand for petroleum products and the transportation thereof, expansion and growth of the Company’s operations, risks relating to the integration of assets or operations of entities that it has or may in the future acquire and the possibility that the anticipated synergies and other benefits of such acquisitions may not be realized within expected timeframes or at all, the failure of counterparties to fully perform their contracts with the Company, the strength of world economies and currencies, general market conditions, including fluctuations in charter rates and vessel values, changes in
22


demand for tanker vessel capacity, changes in the Company’s operating expenses, including bunker prices, drydocking and insurance costs, the market for the Company’s vessels, availability of financing and refinancing, charter counterparty performance, ability to obtain financing and comply with covenants in such financing arrangements, changes in governmental rules and regulations or actions taken by regulatory authorities, potential liability from pending or future litigation, general domestic and international political conditions, potential disruption of shipping routes due to accidents or political events, vessels breakdowns and instances of off‐hires, and other factors. Please see the Company's filings with the SEC for a more complete discussion of certain of these and other risks and uncertainties.
