ATHENS, Greece, Feb. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diana Containerships Inc. (NASDAQ:DCIX), (the “Company”), a global shipping company specializing in the ownership of containerships, today reported a net loss of $8.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to a net loss of $8.8 million for the respective period of 2015. The loss for the fourth quarter of 2016 includes $2.4 million of direct sale and other charges associated with the disposal of one vessel, without which the result for the quarter would have been a net loss of $6.1 million. The loss for the fourth quarter of 2015 includes $6.6 million of impairment charges of one vessel, without which the result for the quarter would have been a net loss of $2.2 million.

Time charter revenues, net of prepaid charter revenue amortization, were $5.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to $14.9 million for the same period of 2015, mainly due to reduced employment opportunities and time charter rates.

Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2016, amounted to $149.0 million, compared to a net loss of $17.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. The loss for 2016 includes $118.9 million of impairment charges for seven of the Company’s vessels and $2.9 million of direct sale and other charges for two vessels, without which the result for the period would have been a net loss of $27.2 million. The loss for the year ended December 31, 2015, includes $8.3 million of direct sale and other charges associated with the disposal of one vessel and $6.6 million of impairment charges of another vessel, without which the result for the period would have been a net loss of $2.6 million. Time charter revenues, net of prepaid charter revenue amortization, for the year ended December 31, 2016, amounted to $33.2 million, compared to $62.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2015.

_____________________

(1) Time charter equivalent rates, or TCE rates, are defined as our time charter revenues, net, less voyage expenses during a period divided by the number of our available days during the period, which is consistent with industry standards. Voyage expenses include port charges, bunker (fuel) expenses, canal charges and commissions.  TCE is a non-GAAP measure.  TCE rate is a standard shipping industry performance measure used primarily to compare daily earnings generated by vessels on time charters with daily earnings generated by vessels on voyage charters, because charter hire rates for vessels on voyage charters are generally not expressed in per day amounts while charter hire rates for vessels on time charters are generally expressed in such amounts.

(2) Daily vessel operating expenses, which include crew wages and related costs, the cost of insurance and vessel registry, expenses relating to repairs and maintenance, the costs of spares and consumable stores, lubricant costs, tonnage taxes, regulatory fees, environmental costs, lay-up expenses and other miscellaneous expenses, are calculated by dividing vessel operating expenses by ownership days for the relevant period.

Cautionary Statement Regarding 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," "anticipate," "intends," "estimate," "forecast," "project," "plan," "potential," "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 expectations, beliefs or projections.

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 the strength of world economies and currencies, general market conditions, including fluctuations in charter rates and vessel values, changes in demand for containership capacity, changes in our operating expenses, including bunker prices, drydocking and insurance costs, the market for our vessels, availability of financing and refinancing, 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, vessel breakdowns and instances of off-hires and other factors. Please see our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a more complete discussion of these and other risks and uncertainties.
