CEO Statement

Mr. Paul Wogan, Chief Executive Officer, stated “I am delighted to report a strong final quarter of 2013, which concludes a successful year for GasLog. In 2013, we have grown our fleet both through ship acquisitions and the exercise of newbuilding options and I am particularly pleased that whilst delivering this growth, we have also executed on our existing business plan. Through 2013, we have increased our backlog of contracted revenue significantly, broadened our financial platform in the capital markets, increased our dividend and entered the spot market, where we have won a number of contracts with new customers. All this has been achieved with 100% utilization of our contracted fleet, and with an excellent safety record. With the delivery of the GasLogSeattle in December, we took delivery of five newbuildings in total this year, all of which commenced multi-year charters to subsidiaries of either Shell or BG. The acquisition of the GasLog Chelsea in October and the subsequent charters to highly reputable counterparties means that we now have eight vessels on the water, compared to two at the beginning of the year. This exposure to the spot market is a small part of our total fleet but our presence in this developing sector continues to enhance our reputation with new and existing customers.

After the end of the quarter, there were two very important developments for GasLog. Firstly, we announced our intention to make a confidential submission to the SEC of a draft registration statement for an MLP, which has now taken place. Secondly, we announced the proposed $468m acquisition and charter back of three ships from BG Group, and completed an equity offering to fund part of the acquisition. We have talked in the past about potential industry consolidation in LNG shipping and this accretive transaction along with our acquisition of the GasLog Chelsea are great examples of our ability to take advantage of these opportunities. We will look to grow our fleet further through value-accretive opportunities that fit within GasLog’s disciplined growth strategy and ultimately deliver value for our shareholders.”

Dividend Declaration

On February 27, 2014, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per common share payable on March 25, 2014 to shareholders of record as of March 10, 2014.

Agreement for three LNG Carriers from BG Group

In January 2014, GasLog signed an agreement with Methane Services Ltd. (“MSL”), an affiliate of BG Group, to purchase three LNG carriers from MSL’s fleet and to charter those ships back to MSL for six-year initial terms (the “BG Group transaction”). MSL also has the option to extend the term of the time charters for two of the ships for a period of either three or five years at its election. The ships to be acquired will be nominated by MSL from an agreed group of six sister ships built at Samsung Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. (“Samsung”) in 2006 and 2007. GasLog supervised the construction of all six ships and has provided technical management for them since delivery. The aggregate cost to GasLog for the ships is expected to be approximately $468 million. Each LNG carrier to be acquired is a modern, steam powered vessel and has a cargo capacity of 145,000 cubic meters.

Equity Offering

On January 22, 2014, GasLog completed a follow-on public offering of 10,925,000 common shares (the “Public Offering”), including 1,425,000 common shares issued upon the exercise in full by the underwriters of their option to purchase additional shares. The public offering price was $15.75 per share. The Company also sold 2,317,460 common shares at the public offering price in a concurrent private placement to certain of its directors and officers and one of its major shareholders (the “Private Placement”). The net proceeds from the Public Offering and the Private Placement, after deducting underwriting discounts and other offering expenses, were $199.4 million.

Proposed Initial Public Offering of MLP

In January 2014, the Board of Directors authorized GasLog to make a confidential submission to the SEC of a draft registration statement on Form F-1 for an initial public offering of units in a MLP to be formed to own certain of GasLog’s LNG carriers with multi-year charters. The proceeds of the offering will principally be used to reduce indebtedness. Completion of the initial public offering is subject to further Board authorization as well as completion of the SEC review process.

Delivery of GasLog Seattle

On December 9, 2013, GasLog took delivery of the GasLog Seattle, an LNG carrier of 155,000 cubic meters capacity with tri-fuel diesel electric propulsion constructed by Samsung. The vessel is chartered out to a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc. from its delivery until 2020, with charterer’s option to extend the terms of the charter at specified rates.

Delivery of GasLog Chelsea

On October 4, 2013, GasLog took delivery of the GasLog Chelsea, a 2010-built 153,600 cubic meters LNG Carrier from STX Pan Ocean LNG Pte. Ltd., a Singapore based company, at a purchase price of $160 million. The vessel is operating in the spot market.

New Financing

In connection with the acquisition of the three ships from MSL, GasLog obtained commitments from Citibank for $325.5 million of debt financing with a two year maturity and a short-term bridge loan facility for up to $100.0 million. As a result of the funds raised from the Public Offering and the concurrent Private Placement, the bridge loan facility was cancelled.

This increase is mainly attributable to the delivery of the GasLog Shanghai, the GasLog Santiago, the GasLog Sydney, the GasLog Skagen, and the GasLog Seattle on January 28, 2013, March 25, 2013, May 30, 2013, July 25, 2013, and December 9, 2013, respectively, and the commencement upon delivery of their charter party agreements. The GasLog Chelsea, delivered on October 4, 2013 also contributed to these profit numbers and has operated on the spot market since delivery.

EPS was $0.34 and $0.91 for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013, respectively ($0.04 and $0.07 for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2012, respectively). The increase in EPS is attributable to the increase in profit.

EBITDA(1) was $43.8 million and $119.4 million for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013, respectively ($8.6 million and $27.8 million for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2012, respectively).

Adjusted EPS(1) was $0.28 and $0.62 for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013, respectively ($0.03 and $0.18 for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2012, respectively).

Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $39.7 million and $101.6 million for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013, respectively ($7.6 million and $34.0 million for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2012, respectively).

Revenues were $59.3 million and $157.2 million for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013, respectively ($18.3 million and $68.5 million for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2012, respectively). The increase is mainly attributable to the delivery of the six ships as outlined above.

Vessel operating and supervision costs were $14.2 million and $34.9 million for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013, respectively ($4.3 million and $14.6 million for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2012, respectively). The increase is mainly attributable to the vessel operating costs of the six ships delivered during 2013.

(1)See Exhibit II for a discussion and reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures.

Contracted Charter Revenues

GasLog’s contracted charter revenues are estimated to increase to $352.2 million for the fiscal year 2017, based on contracts in effect as of December 31, 2013 for the fifteen ships in GasLog’s wholly-owned fleet for which time charters have been secured, including the contracted revenue for the three ships that will be acquired pursuant to the BG Group transaction and the five newbuildings that are scheduled to be delivered on various dates in 2014, 2015 and 2016, but does not include extension options.

Liquidity and Financing

As of December 31, 2013, GasLog had cash and cash equivalents of $103.8 million of which $28.78 million was held in time deposits. Moreover, as of December 31, 2013, GasLog had $4.5 million held in time deposits with an initial duration of more than three months but less than a year which have been classified as short-term investments.

As of December 31, 2013, GasLog had an aggregate of $1.06 billion of indebtedness outstanding under six credit agreements, of which $104.75 million is repayable within one year. As of December 31, 2013, GasLog also had $82.23 million outstanding under its NOK 500 million bonds that are payable in June 2018.

As of December 31, 2013 there is an undrawn amount of $10.51 million from the revolving facility of GAS-two Ltd. from which $2.68 million was drawn in January 2014. The balance is available to be drawn under certain conditions. In addition, there is one loan facility with an aggregate undrawn amount of $435 million available that will be used to finance a portion of the contract prices of three of our newbuildings upon their deliveries.

As of December 31, 2013, GasLog’s commitments for capital expenditures are related to the seven LNG carriers on order at Samsung, which have a gross aggregate contract price of approximately $1.39 billion. As of December 31, 2013, the total remaining balance of the contract prices of the seven newbuildings was $1.27 billion and will be funded with available cash, cash from operations, existing debt and other future financings we will seek to secure.

Around two thirds of GasLog’s expected floating interest rate exposure has been hedged, and the weighted average interest rate of all existing debt is approximately 4.5% (including margin) as of December 31, 2013.

Business Update

As of December 31, 2013GasLog has seven newbuildings on order at Samsung. Our vessels presently under construction are on schedule and within budget.

The seven on-the-water ships in GasLog’s fleet, currently on long-term charters, performed without any off-hire during the quarter ended December 31, 2013, thereby achieving full utilization for the period.

GasLog has secured an extension of the previously reported options for the construction of up to six (4 priced and 2 unpriced) additional LNG carriers (174,000 cubic meters each) from Samsung until the end of the first quarter of 2014.

LNG Market Update and Outlook

We believe that the long-term outlook for LNG shipping remains very positive with several significant liquefaction projects nearing completion and, over the coming years, a steady stream of large projects expected to come online around the world in places such as Australia, USA, Russia, Canada and East Africa. During the fourth quarter of 2013, the 16mtpa Yamal project in North West Siberia took final investment decision (“FID”) and a further approval was given by the U.S. Department of Energy for Freeport train 3 in the USA for exports to non-Free Trade Agreement countries.

During the fourth quarter of 2013 short-term rates for LNG carriers gradually decreased. However, demand for LNG remained high as evidenced by the high prices achievable in the Far East. A lack of available LNG cargoes in the Atlantic basin reduced demand for short-term LNG charters and more ships became available as newbuilds were delivered. This pressure on short-term rates is likely to continue into Q1 2014 as open newbuilds continue to be delivered at a faster pace than liquefaction projects come online.

GasLog’s strategy has been to remain largely contracted over 2014 and 2015 and whilst we may see rates fall from the historically high levels of the last few years, the make-up of our fleet with long-term contracts to reputable counterparties largely protects us from any near term volatility. Looking ahead, we do expect to see significant opportunities to capture the upside in the spot market when new liquefaction capacity begins production to outstrip the number of ships being delivered. With the recently announced BG Group transaction, we will significantly increase our backlog of contracted revenue to approximately $2.5 billion, which further improves the company’s financial flexibility and liquidity.

The acquisition of the GasLog Chelsea and BG Group transaction demonstrate our willingness and ability to take advantage of attractive opportunities as they arise. Our financial flexibility alongside our contracted revenue base allow us to look at potential opportunities that meet our disciplined return criteria in both the short and long-term markets going forward.

Through the delivery of our newbuilding program and the addition of on-the-water vessels, we believe GasLog is very well placed to take advantage of the continuing growth in the LNG industry.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

EBITDA represents earnings before interest income and expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA before unrealized gain/loss on swaps and foreign exchange gains. Adjusted Profit and Adjusted EPS represent earnings and earnings per share, respectively, before unrealized gain/loss on swaps and foreign exchange gains. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Profit and Adjusted EPS, which are non-GAAP financial measures, are used as supplemental financial measures by management and external users of financial statements, such as investors, to assess our financial and operating performance. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures assist our management and investors by increasing the comparability of our performance from period to period. We believe that including EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Profit and Adjusted EPS assists our management and investors in (i) understanding and analyzing the results of our operating and business performance, (ii) selecting between investing in us and other investment alternatives and (iii) monitoring our ongoing financial and operational strength in assessing whether to continue to hold our common shares. This increased comparability is achieved by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods of, in the case of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Profit and Adjusted EPS, unrealized gain/loss on swaps and foreign exchange gains, which items are affected by various and possibly changing financing methods, capital structure and historical cost basis and which items may significantly affect results of operations between periods.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Profit and Adjusted EPS have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered as alternatives to, or as substitutes for, profit, profit from operations, earnings per share or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with IFRS. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude some, but not all, items that affect profit, and these measures may vary among companies. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Profit and Adjusted EPS, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Profit and Adjusted EPS should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by the excluded items. Therefore, the non-GAAP financial measures as presented below may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies in the shipping or other industries.
