NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brooge Energy Limited (“Brooge Energy” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BROG), a midstream oil storage and service provider strategically located outside the Strait of Hormuz, adjacent to the Port of Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates (“UAE”), today announced its financial results for the six months ending June 30, 2020.

2020 Half-Year Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue of $23 million as compared to $22 million in H1 2019
  • Gross profit of $16.7 million as compared to $17.1 million in H1 2019
  • EBITDA of $17 million as compared to $18.8 million in H1 2019
  • Net Profit of $16.2 million or $0.184 per basic and diluted earnings per share as compared to $12 million or $0.20 per basic and diluted earnings per share in H1 2019
  • Subsequent to the period end, the Company completed the issuance of a USD$200 million 5-year senior secured bond (with potential follow-on issuances of up to USD$50 million for a maximum aggregate borrowing limit of USD$250 million). The proceeds of the bond issue will, among other purposes, be used to repay existing bank debt for Phase I and to fund remaining capital expenditures ahead of the launch of the Company’s Phase II oil storage facility.

Nicolaas L. Paardenkooper, Chief Executive Officer of Brooge Energy and BPGIC, said, “We continued to generate strong and consistent revenue throughout the first half of 2020 from our Phase I facility, which is operating at full capacity. Ancillary services contributed 47% of total revenue in H1 2020 (46% in H1 2019), with the balance coming from fixed, storage revenue. We continue to see a global shortage of available oil storage facilities worldwide, with facilities in The Middle East especially in high demand due to the key role it plays in oil production and its location across multiple trade routes. These market dynamics, along with our high-tech, high-speed facilities, and international award winning operational track record led us to leasing approximately one third of the Phase I capacity to a Super Major in May 2020, and additional contracts with more favorable terms, and gradual increase in fixed revenues of up to 50% starting November 2020.”

Revenue for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020 was $23 million, compared to $22 million in the six-month period ended June 30, 2019. To date, all of the Company’s revenues are comprised of fixed leasing and variable ancillary services for its Phase I storage facility which was operating at 100% capacity for both the six-month period ended June 30, 2020 and the six-month period ended June 30, 2019.

Gross profit for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020 was $17 million, resulting in gross margin of 73%, compared to $17 million, or a gross margin of 78%, for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019. The decrease in gross margin is mainly due to increases in operations staff salary costs and costs associated with the new disaster management charges implemented by the Fujairah Oil Industry Zone (FOIZ).

EBITDA for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020 was $17 million as compared to $18.8 million for the same period the year prior.

Net profit for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020 was $16 million compared to a profit of $12 million in the six-month period ended June 30, 2019. For the period ended June, 30 2020, a derivative warrant liability of $10.4 million (31 December 2019: $15.7 million) was recorded, which resulted in a gain on revaluation of derivative warrant liability for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020 of $5.3 million as compared nil for the same period the year prior.

Basic and diluted earnings per share was $0.184 in the six-month period ended June 30, 2020, compared with earnings per share of $0.20 in the six-month period ended June 30, 2019.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity:
The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $1 million as of June 30, 2020, compared with $20 million as of December 31, 2019.

Subsequent to the period end, Brooge completed the issuance of a USD $200 million 5-year senior secured bond with a borrowing limit of USD$ 250 million in the Nordic bond market. The bond, which will mature in September 2025, provides a flexible financial platform to support our future growth agenda and marks a key milestone for the Company in entering the international bond market.
