Annual report 2021
2021 in brief
Particularly challenging market
2021 was a particularly tough year – both for the market and for Concordia Maritime. Continued production cuts, stock reductions and the consequences of the pandemic resulted in low rates in all tanker market segments.
Extensive docking programme completed
During the year, five of the fleet vessels went into drydock for periodic maintenance and installation of ballast water treatment systems.
Time charter contract for P-MAX vessels
A five-year time charter contract for all P-MAX vessels was signed with Stena Bulk in August.
Revised loan terms for P-MAX vessels
An agreement on new loan terms was entered into with lending banks in September. Overall, the new terms include a lower repayment rate, new levels of covenants and a stipulation that the Company may not pay dividends before the end of the loan agreement in December 2024 without the consent of the lending banks.
Erik Lewenhaupt new CEO
Erik Lewenhaupt was appointed new CEO during the year. Erik has a long track record in tanker shipping, including roles at Nordström & Thulin and Stena Bulk, where he was Tanker Chartering Manager in both Gothenburg and Singapore. His most recent position was Head of Sustainability at Stena Line.
Sale of IMOIIMAX vessels
The two IMOIIMAX vessels Stena Image and Stena Important were sold at the end of August. The buyer was a Chinese leasing company. The net liquidity surplus from the transactions amounted to approximately SEK 45 million.
Impairment of vessel values
After an overall assessment of the vessels' market value and their value in use, vessel values were written down by SEK 268 million in Q4. The carrying amount of Concordia Maritime's vessels after the impairment amounts to SEK 1,973 million.
Events after the end of the financial year
- Updated financial terms for P-MAX vessels
- Stena Polaris chartered out
- Technical container design study launched Sale of two vessels
The CEO comments
We can look back on a tough year in which Concordia Maritime slimmed down but also secured important long-term charter contracts.
