Jakarta, Indonesia, Mar 25, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - PT Wintermar Offshore Marine Tbk (IDX:WINS) today reported net profit for FY2013 rose 34% to US$27 million on 50% revenue growth, and EBITDA jumped 62% to US$65.4 million.
WINS's accelerated fleet expansion in 2013 drove gross profit from Owned Vessels up by 71% YOY to US$51.4million on revenue growth of 50%. Rising charter rates and the strength of the USD against the Rupiah underpinned gross margin expansion in an environment of strong demand for offshore vessels. A total of 12 vessels were delivered, 7 in the first half and 5 in the second half of the year, adding up to USD90million of total capex. New vessels comprised : 1 unit Platform Supply Vessel, 1 unit 8000 BHP AHTS, 1 unit 5000 BHP AHTS, 1 unit Heavy Load barge, 4 units Fast utility vessels and 4 units Anchor Handling Tugs.
Cabotage implementation in 2013 for offshore operations support vessels of 5000 BHP and higher, including Platform Support Vessels and Dynamic Positioning vessels, means that all our fleet is now fully covered under the cabotage law. Domestic rates have therefore risen vis a vis international rates as supply of Indonesian flagged vessels has become restricted.
Higher demand for deepwater drilling has also contributed to a pickup in our chartering business, which has seen a 71% jump in revenues to US$78.1 million and nearly doubling of profit to US$5.2million for FY2013. However, these contracts are mainly on short term tenures given the high proportion of exploration activity, and we are not expecting the same growth in 2014 as we focus our efforts on our new Owned Vessel fleet. The implementation of cabotage in 2013 has also reduced the number of vessels available for chartering.
Total gross profit showed growth of 65% owing to very strong result from Owned Vessels, as margins improved significantly compared to the previous year, particularly in the higher value segment of the market.
Indirect expenses and operating profit
Indirect costs saw more modest growth of 31% to US$11 million, mainly from personnel related costs. Our continued efforts to develop our human capital and build out our internal infrastructure in anticipation of scaling up meant higher indirect expenses, primarily from staffing and development of personnel. We have built up a stronger network of vessel teams to be able to handle a larger number of high value vessels.
However, the increase in indirect cost was more than offset by higher gross profit, resulting in a 76% YOY jump in operating profit to US$46.7million.
The higher capital expenditure associated with our increased fleet expansion plan was funded through internally generated cash as well as bank loans. Interest expenses therefore rose accordingly by 49% from US$ 5.6 million to US$ 8.4 million as loans were drawn down. In Q3-2013 we sold an old vessel at a loss to raise cash for the reinvestment into our revised fleet expansion plan, therefore there was a loss in sale of fixed asset of US$ 1 million FY2013, as compared to a gain of US$1.8million in 2012.
Net profit and EBITDA
Net Profit attributed to shareholders has increased by 34% YOY to US$ 27 million while EBITDA has risen by 62% from US$ 40.4 million last year to US$ 65.4 million this period.
Earnings per share for FY2013 amounted to US$ 0.74 cent or Rp 90 which is an increase 32% in US$ term from the previous corresponding period in 2012.
Total Assets and Gearing
Total Assets amount to US$ 422.2 million with our fleet valued at US$299 million as at end 2013 compared to US$232.6 million at end 2012, an increase of 28% reflecting our expansion into higher value vessels
Our net gearing has risen but still remains at a manageable level of 69% as at end December 2013 compared to the previous year end gearing of 57%.
The combination of higher exploration activity and the strict implementation of cabotage in 2013 led to strong growth in all areas of our business, and margin expansion. We continue to be optimistic about the longer term trend of offshore oil and gas in Indonesia as several larger development projects are due to start in the coming months. There have also been more foreign vessels reflagged into Indonesian flag which supports the longer term viability of the Indonesian deepwater drilling industry. There continues to be strong activity in deepwater drilling which feeds demand for higher value vessels, in particular vessels with Dynamic Positioning capability. Although most of the contract tenures for deepwater vessels are still short because most are engaged in exploration work, the commencement of some larger development projects will be very welcome news for the industry. The limited supply of high value OSVs flying the Indonesian flag has led to firmer rates across the high value segment of the market, which are at a premium to global charter rates for the same class of vessels. There has admittedly been some delay in awards of longer term tenures. However, we continue to be optimistic on the outlook for our business and our fleet expansion strategy is still very much on track.
At 1 March 2014, the total value of contracts in hand is US$ 111.2 million.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
