Rand Logistics Announces Expectations for 2017 Sailing Season
JERSEY CITY, N.J., March 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rand Logistics, Inc. (NASDAQ:RLOG) (“Rand”), a leading provider of bulk freight shipping services throughout the Great Lakes region, today announced its outlook for the 2017 Sailing Season.  In summary, the Company anticipates improved financial performance over the 2016 Sailing Season based on recent contract wins, improved customer demand and continued cost savings initiatives.
“We are projecting to sail approximately 3,600 days with 14 vessels in the 2017 season, including all six of our Canadian flagged self-unloaders, our three Canadian flagged bulkers, and five of our six U.S. flagged self-unloaders. For comparison purposes, we sailed 3,560 days in the 2016 Sailing Season and we operated 14 of our vessels. We do not expect to utilize any third-party vessels to haul our customer tonnage in the 2017 Sailing Season, and we are presently evaluating several return-generating alternatives for our sixth U.S. flagged self-unloader," stated Ed Levy, Rand's President and Chief Executive Officer."Based on the current market environment and assuming no change in the U.S./Canadian foreign exchange rate, we are projecting vessel margin per day for our fiscal year ending March 31, 2018 to be approximately $13,400, or 12% greater than preliminary vessel margin per day for our fiscal year ended March 31, 2017,” continued Mr. Levy. "Market conditions for the commodities that we carry have improved compared to this time last year. There still remains leftover grain tonnage from 2016's record setting Canadian harvest, and, at current prices, iron ore exporting is economically attractive and causing tighter capacity in our market. We were successful in increasing market share with certain of our customers whose contracts we renewed over the last 120 days, and we are pleased with our tonnage nominations for the upcoming sailing season. Based on current market conditions and customer nominations received to date, we are expecting our tonnage hauled to increase 7% in the 2017 Sailing Season compared the 2016 Sailing Season,” Mr. Levy concluded.“We are well on our way to achieving an additional $1 million of annual cost savings, which will result in approximately $5 million of aggregate cost savings since we commenced a comprehensive evaluation of our cost structure at the beginning of 2016. These reductions have been realized in a number of areas, including insurance, provisions, spare parts, and general and administration expenses. Our cost savings program is part of an initiative to improve return on invested capital,” stated Mark Hiltwein, Rand's Chief Financial Officer.“Our 2017 operational initiatives include continuing to rationalize our cost structure, managing capital expenses, continuing to improve our operational efficiencies and achieving a higher value-added revenue. We are also actively focused on strategies to refinance our debt,” Mr. Hiltwein concluded.
