“In the third quarter of 2020, we reported another adjusted profit, with adjusted net income of approximately $15 million, or $0.15 per share, and total adjusted EBITDA increased by approximately $34 million, or 18 percent, from the prior year period,” commented Kenneth Hvid, Teekay’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Teekay LNG, which accounted for approximately 82 percent of our total adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2020, generated strong earnings and cash flows despite a heavy scheduled drydock program. Teekay Tankers also reported positive adjusted net income and outperformed a weak spot tanker market on the strength of fixed-rate charters secured over the past several quarters at attractive levels. Teekay Parent’s adjusted EBITDA improved by $13 million in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the same period of the prior year, primarily as a result of higher cash distributions from Teekay LNG, lower net general and administrative expenses, and improved results from the Foinaven and Hummingbird FPSOs, partially offset by lower earnings from the Banff FPSO, which ceased production and commenced decommissioning in June 2020. We are nearing completion of Phase I of the Banff FPSO decommissioning project, which has been progressing well in terms of both schedule and budget. The FPSO unit left the field, as scheduled, in late-August 2020 and is now preparing for green recycling, with Phase II of the decommissioning project expected to be carried out in the summer of 2021,” commented Mr. Hvid.
“We have continued to increase our financial strength across the Teekay group,” added Mr. Hvid. “During the past year, we have reduced our consolidated net debt by over $940 million, or approximately 22 percent, and increased our consolidated liquidity from $0.6 billion to $1.1 billion(1) on a pro forma basis as of September 30, 2020. In addition, at Teekay Parent, we used some of our cash balances to opportunistically repurchase $14.4 million in principal amount of our existing convertible and secured bonds for total consideration of $11.9 million at all-in average prices of 81.55 and 92.23, respectively.”
