Management Commentary:
 
Mr. Petros Panagiotidis, Chief Executive Officer of Castor commented:
 
“In the second quarter of 2022, we enjoyed the improvement of the Aframax and Handysize tanker segments earnings along with another robust quarter in the dry cargo market, with the result of Castor reporting a record net income of approximately $28 million. Our balance sheet is strong with a healthy liquidity position and low leverage. As of June 30, 2022, our free cash was approximately $104 million, which compares with total assets of $552.4 million and the Company’s market capitalization of approximately $126.8 million as of end of the first half of 2022. We continue to generate healthy cash flows, with $52.8 million of cash generated from our operations in the first half of 2022.

We did not sell any common shares under the ATM Program, which expired in June 2022, during the second quarter of 2022 and up to the date of this release. We will continue to seek attractive acquisition opportunities across the shipping space to further pursue Castor’s growth trajectory.”

Earnings Commentary:
 
Second Quarter ended June 30, 2022, and 2021 Results
 
Vessel revenues, net of charterers’ commissions, for the three months ended June 30, 2022, increased to $67.5 million from $21.8 million in the same period of 2021. This increase was largely driven by the increase in our Available Days (defined below) from 1,420 in the three months ended June 30, 2021, to 2,565 in the three months ended June 30, 2022, following the increase in the size of our fleet. The increase in vessel revenues during the three months ended June 30, 2022, as compared with the same period of 2021, was further underpinned by the continuing solid performance of the dry bulk shipping market and the improved Aframax and Handysize tanker vessel earnings as compared to the same period of 2021.
 
The increase in voyage expenses, to $11.8 million in the three months ended June 30, 2022, from $1.4 million in the same period of 2021, is mainly associated with the expansion of our tanker fleet. The expansion of our tanker fleet resulted in: (i) increased bunkers consumption and port expenses during the three months ended June 30, 2022, as our larger tanker fleet operated mostly under voyage charters (under which we bear such expenses) during the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021 when our tankers were primarily employed under time charter contracts (under which case such expenses are borne by our charterers), and (ii) increased brokerage commission expenses, corresponding to the increase in vessel revenues discussed above.
 
The increase in vessel operating expenses by $8.4 million, from $8.0 million in the three months ended June 30, 2021 to $16.4 million in the same period of 2022, as well as the increase in vessels’ depreciation and amortization costs by $3.1 million, from $3.0 million in the three months ended June 30, 2021 to $6.1 million in the same period of 2022, mainly reflect the increase in our Ownership Days following the expansion of our fleet and increased maintenance and insurance costs for certain of our vessels.
 
General and administrative expenses in the three months ended June 30, 2022, amounted to $1.1 million, whereas, in the same period of 2021 general and administrative expenses totaled $0.7 million. This increase stemmed from higher corporate fees primarily due to the growth of our company.

2

Management fees in the three months ended June 30, 2022, amounted to $2.2 million, whereas, in the same period of 2021 management fees totaled $1.8 million. This increase in management fees is due to the substantial increase in our Ownership Days for which our managers charge us with a daily management fee, following the acquisitions discussed above.
 
During the three months ended June 30, 2022, we incurred net interest costs and finance costs amounting to $1.7 million compared to $0.5 million during the same period in 2021. The increase is due to our higher level of weighted average indebtedness during the three months ended June 30, 2022, as compared with the same period of 2021.

Recent Financial and Business Developments Commentary:
 
Equity update
 
On June 15, 2022, the amended and restated equity distribution agreement with the agent under our at-the-market common stock offering program (“ATM Program”) expired. From January 1, 2022 to date, no sales of common shares took place under the ATM Program and there have been no warrant exercises under our outstanding warrant schemes. As of August 5, 2022, we had issued and outstanding 94,610,088 common shares.

Liquidity/ Financing/ Cash flow update

Our consolidated cash position as of June 30, 2022, increased by $71.9 million, to $115.3 million, as compared with our cash position on December 31, 2021. During the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, our cash position improved mainly as a result of: (i) $52.8 million of net operating cash flows generated, and (ii) net financing cash inflows of approximately $54.3 million following our entry into one secured loan facility in January 2022. From these amounts, during the six months ended June 30, 2022, we used $23.1 million to fund the acquisition of the M/V Magic Callisto and other capital expenditures of our fleet, whereas $12.1 million were used for scheduled principal repayments of our debt.
 
As of June 30, 2022, our total debt, gross of unamortized deferred loan fees, was $146.7 million of which $30.3 million is repayable within one year, as compared to $103.8 million of gross total debt as of December 31, 2021.
 
Completion of sale of the M/T Wonder Arcturus
 
On July 15, 2022, we completed the previously announced sale of the M/T Wonder Arcturus by delivering the vessel to its new owners. The Company expects to record during the third quarter of 2022 a gain on the sale of the subject vessel of approximately $3.7 million, excluding any transaction related costs.
 
Fleet Employment Status (as of August 5, 2022) During the three months ended June 30, 2022, we operated on average 29.0 vessels earning a Daily TCE Rate of $21,705 as compared to an average 16.2 vessels earning a Daily TCE Rate of $14,381 during the same period in 2021. Our current employment profile is presented below.

Available Days are the Ownership Days in a period less the aggregate number of days our vessels are off-hire due to scheduled repairs, dry-dockings or special or intermediate surveys.
(3)
Operating Days are the Available Days in a period after subtracting unscheduled off-hire and idle days.
(4)
Daily TCE rate is not a recognized measure under U.S. GAAP. Please refer to Appendix B of this press release for the definition and reconciliation of this measure to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
(5)
Fleet Utilization is calculated by dividing the Operating Days during a period by the number of Available Days during that period.
(6)
Daily vessel operating expenses are calculated by dividing vessel operating expenses for the relevant period by the Ownership Days for such period.
(7)
Our definitions of Ownership Days, Available Days, Operating Days, Fleet Utilization may not be comparable to those reported by other companies.

APPENDIX B
 
Non-GAAP Financial Information
 
Daily TCE Rate. The Daily Time Charter Equivalent Rate (“Daily TCE Rate”), is a measure of the average daily revenue performance of a vessel. We calculate the Daily TCE Rate by dividing total revenues (time charter and/or voyage charter revenues, and/or pool revenues, net of charterers’ commissions), less voyage expenses, by the number of Available Days during that period. Under a time charter, the charterer pays substantially all the vessel voyage related expenses. However, we may incur voyage related expenses when positioning or repositioning vessels before or after the period of a time charter, during periods of commercial waiting time or while off-hire during dry docking or due to other unforeseen circumstances. We may also incur voyage related expenses when our vessels are engaged in voyage charters, in which case the majority of voyage expenses are borne by us. The Daily TCE Rate is not a measure of financial performance under U.S. GAAP (non-GAAP measure) and should not be considered as an alternative to any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. However, the Daily TCE Rate is a standard shipping industry performance measure used primarily to compare period-to-period changes in a company’s performance and, management believes that the Daily TCE Rate provides meaningful information to our investors since it compares daily net earnings generated by our vessels irrespective of the mix of charter types (i.e., time charters, voyage charters or other) under which our vessels are employed between the periods while it further assists our management in making decisions regarding the deployment and use of our vessels and in evaluating our financial performance. Our method of calculation of the Daily TCE Rates may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. The following table reconciles the calculation of the Daily TCE Rate for our fleet to Vessel revenues, net, for the periods presented (amounts in U.S. dollars, except for Available Days):

EBITDA. We define EBITDA as earnings before interest and finance costs (if any), net of interest income, taxes (when incurred), depreciation and amortization of deferred dry-docking costs. EBITDA is used as a supplemental financial measure by management and external users of financial statements to assess our operating performance. We believe that EBITDA assists our management by providing useful information that increases the comparability of our operating performance from period to period and against the operating performance of other companies in our industry that provide EBITDA information. This increased comparability is achieved by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods or companies of interest, other financial items, depreciation and amortization and taxes, which items are affected by various and possibly changing financing methods, capital structure and historical cost basis and which items may significantly affect net income between periods. We believe that including EBITDA as a measure of operating performance benefits investors in (a) selecting between investing in us and other investment alternatives and (b) monitoring our ongoing financial and operational strength. EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under U.S. GAAP, does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, cash flow from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. EBITDA as presented below may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table reconciles EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, for the periods presented:

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
Matters discussed in this press release may constitute forward-looking statements. We intend such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). 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. We are including this cautionary statement in connection with this safe harbor legislation. The words “believe”, “anticipate”, “intend”, “estimate”, “forecast”, “project”, “plan”, “potential”, “will”, “may”, “should”, “expect”, “pending” 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, our management’s examination of historical operating trends, data contained in our records and other data available from third parties. Although we believe 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 our control, we cannot assure you that we will achieve or accomplish these forward-looking statements, including these expectations, beliefs or projections. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. In addition to these important factors, other important factors that, in our view, could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward‐looking statements include our business strategy, dry bulk and tanker market conditions and trends, the rapid growth of our fleet, our relationships with our current and future service providers and customers, our ability to borrow under existing or future debt agreements or to refinance our debt on favorable terms and our ability to comply with the covenants contained therein, our continued ability to enter into time or voyage charters with existing and new customers and to re-charter our vessels upon the expiry of the existing charters, changes in our operating and capitalized expenses, our ability to fund future capital expenditures and investments in the acquisition and refurbishment of our vessels, instances of off-hire (including limitations improved by COVID-19 and/or due to vessel upgrades and repairs), future sales of our securities in the public market and our ability to maintain compliance with applicable listing standards, volatility in our share price, potential conflicts of interest involving members of our Board of Directors, senior management and certain of our service providers that are related parties, general domestic and international political conditions or events (including “trade wars”, global public health threats and major outbreaks of disease), changes in seaborne and other transportation, changes in governmental rules and regulations or actions taken by regulatory authorities, and the impact of adverse weather and natural disasters. Please see our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a more complete discussion of these and other risks and uncertainties. The information set forth herein speaks only as of the date hereof, and we disclaim any intention or obligation to update any forward‐looking statements as a result of developments occurring after the date of this communication.
