Evergreen reported 63% YoY fall in Jan+Feb revenue

Yang Ming reported this morning (10th Mar) FY2022 earnings plus large dividend pay-out. But what may have gone unnoticed today is that Evergreen also reported Feb 2023 top line overnight (9 Mar), being the earliest of any container liner financial reports. Evergreen's Feb revenue in USD terms fell 68% YoY and 28% MoM. Combining January and February, the two-month aggregate revenue fell 63% YoY. As the liners did not make over 60% operating profit margin in 1Q 2022, over 60% fall in revenue means

Hapag-Lloyd Guidance’s Track Record

Hapag-Lloyd guided €2-4 Bn in Earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) for 2023, which would turn out to be the third best year of its operating track record going back to 2003. Hapag-Lloyd has been providing guidance since 2014 prior to its public listing in Nov 2015. An analysis of the Hapag-Lloyd earnings guidance from the past 9 years show Hapag-Lloyd beating their own guidance 6 times and missed only once in 2016.

CMA CGM disclosed some head line figures for its FY2022 and Q4 2022 results on March 4.

Focus Container Line in liquidation

Focus Container Line has become the second casualty of the container market downturn after liquidators were appointed on 14 February 2023 to wind up the company that is based in Brendale in Queensland, Australia. It follows the insolvency of the UK based Allseas Global Project Logistics in October 2022. Both companies suffered from their ill-timed entry into the container shipping markets that have been hit by a collapse in freight rates. Focus Container Line was established in March 2022 but o

OOIL 4Q revenue dropped $1.8bn or 37% QoQ

OOIL reported 4Q 2022 top line breakdown after Hong Kong market close yesterday (11 Feb). 4Q revenue was down by 37% QoQ and 35% YoY, driven by lower freight rates. Most of the routes, except for Transatlantic, were hit similarly and the fall in average freight rates was broadly in line with the fall in CCFI. OOIL only reports full set results semi-annually. On the $2.2bn or 21% HoH fall in revenue, OOIL's 2H 2022 net profit may also fall about $2bn or 38% HoH. OOIL usually reports past year's

Container Liners Saw Lower Revenue in January

Taiwanese liners' January revenue continued its slide. In aggregate these 3 listed liners' revenue at about $1.6bn in January was down 14% MoM and 65% YoY. The 14% sequential fall in January was similar to the pace of fall in December. This year's Lunar New Year public holidays went from 21 to 27 January in China. Many factories in China closed ahead of the official public holidays and resumed production later than the official holiday end, which may have negatively impact container shipment v

Maersk guided 80-90% YoY fall in earnings during 2023

Maersk reported before European market open today (8 Feb). 4Q EBIT came out as $5.0b, better than the $4.8bn guided in November. Although not being very surprising, this beat has to be viewed in context that the 4Q EBIT was down 47% QoQ and 26% YoY. The main delta contributing to Maersk's profit was the 23% QoQ fall in average freight rates, which however was less than the 455 QoQ fall in CCFI due to Maersk's higher than average contract mix. The most concerning to the capital market is that
