EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

Petrogress, Inc. (“Petrogress”) is filing this quarterly report on Form 10-Q after the May 15, 2020 (the “Original Due Date”) deadline applicable to for the filing of a Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 (the “Quarterly Report”) in reliance on the 45-day extension provided by an order issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) under Section 36 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), dated March 4, 2020 (Release  No.  34-88318), as modified and superseded by a new SEC order issued on March 25, 2020 (Release No. 34-88465) (collectively, the “order”).

 

On May 14, 2020, Petrogress filed a Current Report on Form 8-K to indicate its intention to rely on the Order for such extension. Consistent with its statements made in the Form 8-K, Petrogress was unable to file the Quarterly Report by the Original Due Date, and therefore relied on the Order. Due to the circumstances and uncertainty surrounding the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the business, employees, consultants and service providers of Petrogres, and considering the lack of time for the compilation, dissemination and review of the information required to be presented and the importance of markets and investors receiving materially accurate information in the Quarterly Report, the Quarterly Report is hereby filed before the extended due date permitted under the Order, i.e. 45 days after the Original Due Date, or June 29, 2020.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT RELEVANT TO FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION

 

This quarterly report of Petrogress Corporation contains forward-looking statements relating to Petrogress operations that are based on management’s current expectations, estimates and projections about the petroleum, chemicals, transactions, vessels and other energy-related industries. All statements in this Report that are not representations of historical fact are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and subject to the safe-harbor provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words or phrases such as “anticipates,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “targets,” “forecasts,” “projects,” “believes,” “seeks,” “schedules,” “estimates,” “positions,” “pursues,” “may,” “could,” “should,” “budgets,” “outlook,” “trends,” “guidance,” “focus,” “on schedule,” “on track,” “is slated,” “goals,” “objectives,” “strategies,” “opportunities” and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements.

 

The reader should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this report. Unless legally required, Petrogress undertakes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. 

 

Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements are: changing crude oil prices; changing refining, marketing and chemicals margins; our ability to realize anticipated cost savings and expenditure reductions; actions of competitors or regulators; public health crises, such as pandemics (including coronavirus (COVID-19)) and epidemics, and any related government policies and actions; timing of exploration expenses; timing of crude oil liftings; the competitiveness of alternate-energy sources or product substitutes; technological developments; the results of operations and financial condition of the our suppliers, vendors, partners and equity affiliates, particularly during extended periods of low prices for crude oil during the COVID-19 pandemic; the inability or failure of our joint-venture partners to fund their share of operations and development activities; the potential failure to achieve expected net production from existing and future crude oil development projects; potential delays in the development, construction or start-up of planned projects; the potential disruption or interruption of our operations due to war, accidents, piracy, political events, civil unrest, severe weather, cyber threats and terrorist acts, crude oil production quotas or other actions that might be imposed by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, or other natural or human causes beyond the company's control; changing economic, regulatory and political environments in the countries in which we operate; general domestic and international economic and political conditions; the potential liability for remedial actions or assessments under existing or future environmental regulations and litigation; significant operational, investment or product changes required by existing or future environmental statutes and regulations, including international agreements and national or regional legislation and regulatory measures to limit or reduce greenhouse gas emissions; the potential liability resulting from other pending or future litigation; our future acquisition or disposition of assets or shares or the delay or failure of such transactions to close based on required closing conditions; the potential for gains and losses from asset dispositions or impairments; government-mandated sales, divestitures, recapitalizations, industry-specific taxes, changes in fiscal terms or restrictions on scope of company operations; foreign currency movements compared with the U.S. dollar; material reductions in corporate liquidity and access to debt markets; and our ability to identify and mitigate the risks and hazards inherent in operating in the global energy industry; the company’s ability to identify and mitigate the risks and hazards inherent in operating in the global energy industry; and the factors set forth under the heading “Risk Factors” on pages 11 through 16 of the company’s 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K, on pages 25 and 26 of this report and in subsequent filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Other unpredictable or unknown factors not discussed in this report could also have material adverse effects on forward-looking statements.

 

Other unknown or unpredictable factors also could harm our results. Consequently, there can be no assurance that actual results or developments anticipated by us will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, us. These forward-looking statements do not guaranty our future performance, and actual results and developments may vary materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Given these uncertainties, prospective investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation, and specifically decline any obligation, except as required by law, to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

PETROGRESS, INC.

 

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

 

Note 1.     General

 

Petrogress, Inc (PGI), is an integrate energy company, engaged in the upstream, downstream and midstream segments. The company operates Internationally through its wholly owned subsidiaries "Petrogress Int'l LLC.", "Petronav Carriers LLC.", “Petrogress Africa Ltd.” and “PG Cypyard Offshore terminal Ltd.”. The company also provides sea-transportation services -as an independent established Maritime Company- by our tankers fleet. The company is registered in Delaware and headquartered from Piraeus-Greece, where the company maintain its principal marketing and operating offices at 1, Akti Xaveriou, 18538 Piraeus, Greece. Our telephone number at that address is +30 (210) 459-9741 and our corporate address and registered agent in Delaware is 1013 Centre Road, Suite 403-A, Wilmington, DE 19805 – USA.

 

Impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic; The outbreak of COVID-19 and decreases in commodity prices resulting from oversupply and government-imposed travel restrictions have caused a significant decrease in the demand for our products and has created disruptions and volatility in the global marketplace beginning in the first quarter 2020, which negatively affected significantly our results of operations and cash flows. These conditions have persisted into the second quarter, including a further collapse in commodity prices and sea-transportations, and are expected to negatively affect our results of operations and cash flows as well. There remains a continuing uncertainty regarding the length and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated reductions in demand for our products, on the energy industry and the outlook for our business.

 

The coronavirus pandemic has imposed the continuing lockdown of the Company’s offices in Greece and Africa and the majority of its operations ceased. While our employees, vessel’s crew and labors are staying at their homes and our fleet still remains idle.

 

The management of the Company assesses the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern at each period end. The assessments evaluate whether there are conditions that give rise to substantial doubts to continue as a going concern within the year from the present issuance of our financial statements. In addition, under the present circumstances and market condition, we believe that our incomes undoubtedly will be heavily affected during the year, and that raises substantial doubt for the company’s ability to continue its business unless the company succeed to raise extra cash financing. See our Risk Factors on page 20 Item 1A.

 

Basis of Presentation; The accompanying consolidated financial statements of Petrogress and its subsidiaries (together, Petrogress or the company) have not been audited by an independent registered public accounting firm.

Note 8.   Other Contingencies and Commitments

 

The Company is not a party to any litigation, and, to its best knowledge, no action, suit or proceeding has been threatened against the Company.

 

 

Note 9. Financial and Derivative Instruments

 

Financial Instruments; The Company has financial instruments that are considered derivatives or contain embedded features subject to derivative accounting. Embedded derivatives are valued separately from the host instrument and are recognized as derivative liabilities in the Company’s balance sheet. The Company measures these instruments at their estimated fair value and recognizes changes in their estimated fair value in results of operations during the period of change. The Company has estimated the fair value of these embedded derivatives for convertible debentures using a Black Scholes model as of March 31, 2020 and 2019. For amounts over proceeds in the initial derivative measurement, the Company recorded a derivative expense of $99,702 and $0 during the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The fair values of the derivative instruments are measured each quarter, which resulted in a loss of $256,808 and $0 during the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. As of March 31, 2020, and 2019, the fair market value of the derivatives aggregated $1,066,685 and $0, respectively.

 

The fair value for the Company's derivative liability as at March 31, 2020 is based upon the following management assumptions:

     

Minimum

     

Maximum

 

Volatility

      272.25 %       428.03 %

Risk Free rate

      0.05 %       0.12 %

Life

      0.13         0.41  

 

 

Note 10. Revenue

 

“Sales and other operating revenue” on the Consolidated Statement of Income primarily arise from contracts with customers and consistent with ASC Topic 606. Related receivables are included in “Accounts and notes receivable, net” on the Consolidated Balance Sheet, net of the current expected credit losses. The net balance of these receivables was $2,049,256 and $2,011,430 at March 31, 2020, and December 31, 2019, respectively. Other items included in “Accounts and notes receivable, net” represent amounts due from partners for their share of joint venture operating and project costs.

 

 

Note 11. Earnings (Loss) per Share and Stockholders’ Equity

As of March 31, 2020, and 2019, the basic weighted average number of shares of Common Stock of the Company was 4,600,584 and 3,828,412, respectively. Since the Company has a net loss the three months ended March 31, 2020, there is no dilutive effect for those specific periods.

 

 

Note 12. Authorized Shares and Transactions

 

On July 9, 2018, the Company filed an amendment (the “Amendment”) to its Certificate of Incorporation with the Delaware Secretary of State to, (a) effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s Common Stock at a ratio of one-for-100, (b) reduce the number of authorized shares of Common Stock from 490,000,000 to 19,000,000 and (c) reduce the number of authorized shares of Preferred Stock from 10,000,000 to 1,000,000. The amendment took effect on July 18, 2018. There was no change in the par value of the Company’s Common Stock of Preferred Stock as a result of the Amendment.

 

As of March 31, 2020, our authorized capital stock consists; 19,000,000 shares of Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share and 1,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share.

Refer to the “Results of Operations” section beginning on page 14 for a discussion of our financial results.

 

Executive Overview

 

Petrogress, Inc., is based in Delaware and operates as a holding company and conducts its business through its wholly-owned subsidiaries: Petronav Carriers LLC., which manages day-to-day operations of its beneficially-owned affiliated tanker fleet; and Petrogress Int’l LLC., which is a holding company for subsidiaries currently conducting business in Greece, Cyprus and Ghana, and provides management of crude oil purchases and sales;

 

Business Environment and Outlook

 

Petrogress, is an oil energy and sea transportation company with business activities in the following countries: Greece, Cyprus and Ghana. Our earnings currently depend primarily on the profitability of our crude oil sales. The biggest factor affecting the results of operations is the price of crude oil. The price of crude oil has fallen significantly since mid-year 2019. The downturn in the price of crude oil has impacted the company's results of operations, cash flows, leverage, capital and exploratory investment program and production outlook. A sustained lower price environment could result in the impairment or write-off of specific assets in future periods. We have reacted to the downturn by effecting reductions in operating expenses, pacing and re-focusing of capital and exploratory expenditures. We anticipate that crude oil prices will increase in the future, as continued growth in demand and a reduction in supply growth should bring global markets into balance. However, the timing or sustainability of any such increase in prices is unknown. In the Company's downstream business, crude oil is the largest cost component of refined products. Nevertheless, it is our objective to deliver competitive results and shareholder value in any business environment.

 

Our midstream segment relies and depends on our crude oil sales contracts to keep our vessels employed. We rely primarily on the revenues generated from our business of physical supply of crude oil and marketing of refined products to our end customers.

 


* On November 16, 2016, Petrogress, Inc., filed Articles of Merger and Plan of Merger in Florida and Delaware to change the Company’s domicile by merging with and into a Delaware corporation formed solely for the purpose of effecting the reincorporation. On July 9, 2018, the Company filed an amendment (the "Amendment") to the Company's Certificate of Incorporation with the Delaware Secretary of State to (a) effect a reverse stock split of the Company's Common Stock at a ratio of one-for-100, (b) reduce the number of authorized shares of Common Stock from 490,000,000 to 19,000,000 and (c) reduce the number of authorized shares of Preferred Stock from 10,000,000 to 1,000,000. The Amendment took effect on July 18, 2018. There was no change in the par value of the Company's Common Stock or Preferred Stock as a result of the Amendment.

The company continually evaluates opportunities to dispose of assets that are not expected to provide sufficient long-term value or to acquire assets or operations complementary to its asset base to help augment the company’s financial performance and value growth. Asset dispositions and restructurings may result in significant gains or losses in future periods.

Asset dispositions and restructurings may result in significant gains or losses in future periods.

 

Response to Market Conditions and COVID-19 

 

During the first quarter of 2020, travel restrictions and other constraints on economic activity were implemented in many locations around the world to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. As a result, demand for our products has fallen steeply and commodity prices, including crude oil and other petroleum products, have followed suit. The drop in commodity prices is expected to negatively impact the company’s future financial and operating results. Due to the rapidly changing environment, there continues to be uncertainty and unpredictability around the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our results, which could be material. Petrogress, entered into this crisis with a weak balance sheet and low cash liquidity. Accordingly, to protect its long-term health and value, the company is responding to such market condition by adjusting items it can control. Additionally, the company has suspended its repayments of short-terms debts and reduced also the purchase of the crude oil from its suppliers. A number of our vessels crew dismissed to mitigate the daily non-operating expenses of our fleet. Together, these actions are consistent with our financial priorities: to protect our ongoing projects, to prioritize capital spend that drives long-term value and to maintain our position in the energy and shipping market. The company relies in its receivables in order to continue with a sufficient liquidity on its operations.   

 

Refer to the “Cautionary Statements Relevant to Forward-Looking Information” on Page 2 and to “Risk Factors” in Part II, Item 1A, on pages 22 for a discussion of some of the inherent risks that could materially impact the company’s results of operations or financial condition. 

 

Operating sectors

 

Our business operates in the downstream and midstream sectors of the energy industry, where we acquire and supply crude oil, and engage in the refining and marketing of refined products and lubricants. As a supplier, we procure crude oil from our direct sources and deliver by our tankers fleet to buyers’ destinations. With service centers in East Mediterranean and West Africa, we believe that we are one of a limited number of independent physical suppliers that owns and operates a fleet of supplying vessels and conducts physical supply operations in multiple jurisdictions.

 

We provide our customers with services that require sophisticated logistical operations designed to meet their strict oil quality and delivery scheduling needs. We believe that our extensive experience and management systems allow us to meet our customers' specific requirements when they purchase and take delivery of crude oil, refined products and lubricants around the areas in which we operate. We have devoted our efforts to building a global brand and believe that our customers recognize our brand as representing high quality service and products at each of our locations. We also perform our technical ship operations in-house, which helps us maintain high levels of customer service. Throughout our history, we have expanded our business capabilities through strategic alliances, select business and vessel acquisitions, and the establishment of new service centers.

 

The company maintain its principal marketing and operating offices at 1, Akti Xaveriou, 18538 Piraeus, Greece. Our telephone number at that address is +30 (210) 459-9741 and our corporate address and registered agent in Delaware is 1013 Centre Road, Suite 403-A, Wilmington, DE 19805 – USA.

 

Other Businesses

 

Effected as on November 2019, the company concluded the negotiations to lease three Gas refilling stations in the Mainland of South Greece. The procedures for the obtaining the operating licenses from the local authorities are in progress, simultaneously with the preparation of gas stations designs and drawings in order to commence the modernization and renovation under our brand names. We estimate to complete and have them ready for operations within three months’ time. The gas Stations shall be operated by our Hellenic branch in Greece and we expect to be ready by June 2020.

Our key business segments

 

The following are descriptions of our recent initiatives undertaken in each of our key business segments:

 

Upstream; Earnings for the upstream segment are closely aligned with industry prices for crude oil. Crude oil prices are subject to external factors over which the company has no control, including product demand connected with global economic conditions, industry production and inventory levels, technology advancements, production quotas or other actions imposed by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) or other producers, actions of regulators, weather-related damage and disruptions, competing fuel prices, natural and human causes beyond the company's control such as the COVID-19 pandemic, and regional supply interruptions. The company is actively managing its schedule of work, contracting, procurement, and supply chain activities to effectively manage costs, ensure supply chain resiliency and continuity, and support operational goals. The spot markets for many services and materials are softening in response to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the drastic reductions in demand for petroleum products, including gasoline and fuel, among others, and in crude oil prices, which have resulted in significant reductions in economic activity and associated spending in the energy sector. Commodity prices have fallen below break-even levels in many regions.

 

Downstream: As on February 2018, our Partnership agreement with Platon Ghana Oil Refinery (PGOR) -an unrelated third party- is still ongoing and renewed on an annual basis and pursuant its terms Petrogress will feed and supply the crude oil for storage, refinement, marketing and distribution in Ghana jointly with PGOR. The storage capacity under the Partnership Agreement is 24,000 tons and the monthly processing capacity of the refinery is 10,000 tons. Petrogress and Platon both plans to invest additional funds to upgrade the processing monthly capacity into refined products of Gas Oil, Naphtha, and fuel in view of the high local demand. Under the Platon Partnership Agreement, all expenses of the partnership operations are shared by both Petrogress and Platon. After deducting the operating/processing expenses, the net profits from the sale of the products are split evenly between Petrogres and Platon. As of the date the Platon Partnership Agreement was executed, Petrogress ceased other sales of crude to third customers in West Africa. During the year the company expanded its operations to other sectors, engaging into gas-stations operator and lubricants distributor.

 

Earnings for the downstream segment are closely tied to margins on the refining, manufacturing and marketing of products that include gasoline, diesel, fuel oil and lubricants additives, and petrochemicals. Industry margins are sometimes volatile and can be affected by the global and regional supply-and-demand balance for refined products and petrochemicals, and by changes in the price of crude oil, other refinery and petrochemical feedstocks. Industry margins can also be influenced by inventory levels, geopolitical events, costs of materials and services, refinery or chemical plant capacity utilization, maintenance programs, and disruptions at refineries resulting from unplanned outages due to severe weather, fires or other operational events. Other factors affecting profitability for downstream operations include the reliability and efficiency of the company’s refining, marketing, the effectiveness of its crude oil supply functions, and the volatility of tanker-charter rates for the company’s shipping operations, which are driven by the industry’s demand for crude oil and product tankers. Other factors beyond the company’s control include the general level of inflation and energy costs to operate the company’s refining process and marketing, including the changes in tax laws and regulations.

 

The company’s most significant marketing areas are the West Coast of Africa and East Mediterranean where Petrogress affiliates have significant ownership interests, representations and partnership agreements, in these areas.

 

Midstream; The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic occurred the ceased of our entire fleet operations and employments which resulted the complete elimination of freight and hire incomes, while the fleet expenses remained on the same levels during and March, April and May 2020. Nevertheless, we believe the shipping industry will be rectified and return to the normal levels, therefore we still seek to expand our midstream operations in other international ocean routes by adding to our fleet larger and younger tanker vessels. We are monitoring the vessel market for opportunities while we are also working to secure the necessary funding for expansion. Our business strategy is based in part upon the expansion of our business to new, or within existing, markets. In order to fund future vessel acquisitions, expansion into new and existing markets and products, increased working capital levels, or capital expenditures, we will be required to use cash from operations, incur borrowings or raise capital through the sale of debt or equity securities in the public or private markets.

 

The company closely monitors developments in the financial and credit markets, the level of worldwide economic activity, and the implications for the Company of movements in prices for crude oil and refined products. Management takes these developments into account in the conduct of daily operations and for business planning.

 

The company continually evaluates opportunities to dispose of assets that are not expected to provide sufficient long-term value or to acquire assets or operations complementary to its asset base to help augment the company’s financial performance and value growth. Asset dispositions and restructurings may result in significant gains or losses in future periods.

Page | 14

 

Greece – conclude the concession agreement with Gythio port authorities and take over the management of the port for the next 35 years;

 

Egypt – conclude the company’s partnership agreement with a national petroleum refinery for the sludges collection from all vessels calling the Egyptian ports;

 

Egypt – complete the final arrangements for the bunkering location at Port Said and shift-place one of our tankers in position to commence the bunkering operations in the area;

 

Ghana – conclude the partnership agreement with SONERGON, a manufacturing power-plants company and build the first Power-Plant in Ghana;

 

The said projects were interrupted due to COVID-19 outbreak as of March and during the second quarter of 2020 as a result of travel restrictions between the countries.

 

Results of Operations

 

The following section presents the results of operations and variances on a before-tax basis for the company’s business operations, as well as for “All Other.”

Our operating revenues are driven primarily of the commodities trading sales and our tankers fleet employment days during which our vessels are generating revenues, while our financial results are subject to a number of sectors and reflects to the following factors:

 

Cost of commodities; is the cost we purchase the oil products -mainly the crude oil- and such cost is based either on Brent Index prices or Fixed price, the quality and quantity of the product.

 

Commodities Operating Expenses; relates to products surveys before and after the shipment, bunkers supplied to the employment vessel, cargoes surveys, loading/unloading expenses, agency and representative services.

 

Shipping & Logistic Expenses; includes the sea freight and mobilization cost, the performed loading and discharging of the product, and any expenses occurred during the shipping time from the loading point up to unloading facilities.

 

Vessels Operating Expenses; includes crew wages and bonuses, their medical support and travelling, maintenance and repairs to the vessels hull and their machineries, expenses for supplies of spare-parts and consumable stores, paints, lubricants, fresh water, bunkers, agency services, etc.

 

General and Administrative Expenses; relates to our directors, officers and managers salaries and compensations, shore staff wages, employee’s federal insurance, offices lease and utilities, telecommunications, travelling and representations of our officers, our agency fees we pay to our branch’s offices in Greece, Cyprus, Ghana and Nigeria.

 

Corporate Expenses; are all company’s expenses and includes, our executive’s compensations, attorney’s fee, Auditors and accountant fees, Consultant’s and P/R fees, Transfer agents of our stock, miscellaneous.

 

Other factors may affect our Results of Operations; In addition to the said expenses there are factors beyond of our control which may affect seriously our operations results. Inasmuch as we trade also West Africa, which is considered as high risky area, we are expose in a serious amount of risks, such as piracies and hijacks, civil wars, stolen of properties, economy distress, and credit risks.

 

EBITDA and Adjustment; EBITDA represents net income before expenses, taxes and depreciation. Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before expense, taxes, taxes, depreciation and amortization of dry-docking.

Liquidity & Capital Resources

 

Our main sources of liquidity are cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and internally generated cash flow from operations. At March 31, 2020, we had a working capital of $2,336,944 consisting of $387,622 in cash and cash equivalents, $2,049,256 in accounts receivable, $378,545 in claims receivable, $1,235,963 in inventories and $2,191,023 in prepaid expenses and other current assets.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020, net cash provided by operating activities was $344,086 compared to $605,215 of net cash used in operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

 

Assets included in the calculation of the Company’s working capital have decreased by $988,714 mainly from the decrease in inventories which have decreased by $648,649. This decrease has been financed mainly by our net income and the increase of our liabilities included in working capital, namely the increase in Convertible promissory notes and Derivative liabilities which have increased by $59,750 and $256,808 respectively, during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

The company’s future debt level is dependent primarily on results of operations, cash that may be generated from asset dispositions, the capital program, lending commitments to affiliates, and shareholder contributions. Our need for capital resources is driven by our expansion plans, ongoing maintenance and improvement of our vessels, support of our operational expenses, corporate overhead and the expenses we suffer in order to comply with the regulatory requirements of SEC. Specifically, Petrogress, Inc., the parent company, does not have revenues while it suffers all the necessary operating and general and administrative expenses to comply with the regulatory requirements of the SEC.

Management seeks to secure the necessary financing for the expansion of Company’s operations. Based on our current plan, we believe our expected cash flows from operations will be sufficient to finance our present activities and capital expenditures only for a period of the next 6 months. The company needs to raise a reasonable finance in order to expand its operations, increase the oil sales and support its projects-operations.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1 Legal Proceedings

 

Information about legal proceedings for the three months ended March 31, 2020, does not differ materially from that discussed under Item 7A of Petrogress’s 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Item 1A Risk Factors

 

Information about risk factors for the three months ended March 31, 2020, does not differ materially from that set forth under the heading “Risk Factors” on pages 11 through 16 of the company’s 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K, other than as reflected in the risk factor below.

 

Impacts of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and geopolitical factors have resulted in a significant decrease in demand for Petroleum products and caused a precipitous drop in commodity prices, which has had and is expected to continue to have an adverse, and potentially material adverse, effect on Petrogress’s future financial and operating results.

 

As of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the economic, business, and oil and gas industry impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic and the disruption to capital markets have been far reaching. Crude oil prices, the single largest variable that affects the company’s results of operations, have fallen dramatically to historic lows, even going negative in some cases, due to a combination of a severely reduced demand for crude oil, gasoline, jet fuel, diesel fuel, and other refined products resulting from government-mandated travel restrictions and an economic standstill resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a result, a market imbalance has existed and may continue to exist, with oil supplies vastly exceeding current and expected near-term demand. Although OPEC and other countries have agreed to cut global oil supply, the commitments and actions to date have not matched the dramatic decrease in global demand, which is driving increasing inventory levels with refineries, pipelines and storage facilities at or close to storage capacity in a growing number of locations.

 

Extended periods of low prices for crude oil are expected to have a material adverse effect on the company’s results of operations, financial condition and liquidity. Among other things, the company’s earnings, cash flows, and capital and exploratory expenditure programs are expected to be negatively affected. As a result, the value of the company’s assets may also become impaired in future periods.

 

The company’s operations and workforce are being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, causing certain operations to be curtailed to various degrees, which may become suspended completely if adverse conditions persist. As a result of decreased demand for its products, the company has made significant cuts to its operations during March and second quarter of 2020, which are expected to negatively impact our future operations, cash flows and assets.

 

The company’s suppliers and customers are also being heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and access to materials, supplies, and contracts has been strained. In certain cases, the company has received notices invoking force majeure provisions in supplier contracts and receivables. This strain on the financial health of the company’s customers could put further pressure on the company’s financial results and may negatively impact supply and sales assurance and performance for the company.

 

In light of the significant uncertainty around the duration and extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, management is currently unable to develop with any level of confidence estimates and assumptions that may have a material impact on the company’s consolidated financial statements and financial or operational performance in any given period. In addition, the unprecedented nature of such market conditions could cause current management estimates and assumptions to be challenged in hindsight.

 

There continues to be uncertainty and unpredictability around the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our financial and operating results in future periods. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacts our future financial and operating results, and for what duration and magnitude, depends on several factors that are continuing to evolve, are difficult to predict and, in many instances, are beyond the company's control. Such factors include the duration and scope of the pandemic, including any resurgences of the pandemic, and the impact on our workforce and operations; the negative impact of the pandemic on the economy and economic activity, including travel restrictions and prolonged low demand for our products; the ability of our affiliates, suppliers and partners to successfully navigate the impacts of the pandemic; the actions taken by governments, businesses and individuals in response to the pandemic; the actions of OPEC and other countries that otherwise impact supply and demand and correspondingly, commodity prices; the extent and duration of recovery of economies and demand for our products after the pandemic subsides; and Petrogress ability to keep its cost model in line with changing demand for petroleum products and shipping.

 

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly evolving, and the continuation or a resurgence of the pandemic could precipitate or aggravate the other risk factors identified in our 2019 Form 10-K, which in turn could further materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition, liquidity, results of operations and profitability, including in ways not currently known or considered by us to present significant risks.

During April 2020, the oil prices crashed to zero, while that period the company’s subsidiary PIL left with a large volume of crude oil which purchased through its supplier on fixed price before the market collapse. Furthermore, the sea-transportation impacted negatively resulting the ceased of our fleet as our ships remained idle for long period. The company is doing its utmost to recover such capital damage when the oil market will improve.

  

 

During May 2020, the company’s subsidiary towed to Piraeus Shipyard its new purchased vessel to commence her modification as a liquid lubricant carrier. The modification and all drydocking works estimated to be completed within 3-4 months, all going well, while the budget for such modification works estimated to be $700,000.
