Please refer to "Definitions and Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and the Appendices to this release for definitions of these terms and reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures as used in this release to the most directly comparable financial measures under United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

GAAP net loss and non-GAAP adjusted net loss for the third quarter of 2018 compared to the same period of the prior year were negatively affected by the expiry of time-charter out contracts for various vessels which have subsequently traded in the spot market at lower rates, and costs associated with the sale-leaseback transactions relating to six Aframax tankers. These were partially offset by higher average spot tanker rates in the third quarter of 2018 compared to the same period in the prior year. GAAP net loss in the third quarter of 2017 included a loss on sales of vessels.
Compared to the second quarter of 2018, GAAP net loss and non-GAAP adjusted net loss for the third quarter of 2018 were primarily affected by higher average spot tanker rates.

CEO Commentary
“Crude tanker rates strengthened counter-seasonally during the third quarter of 2018, which is typically the weakest quarter of the year, and exceeded our results from last quarter,” commented Kevin Mackay, Teekay Tankers’ President and Chief Executive Officer.  “In the fourth quarter to-date, crude tanker rates have continued to strengthen, driven primarily by very low fleet growth as a result of high scrapping activity and higher oil production from OPEC, Russia and the United States.  Higher oil production in the United States is also positive for mid-size tanker demand due to direct exports to Europe on Suezmax and Aframax tankers and reverse lightering demand in the U.S. Gulf.  Looking ahead, we are very encouraged by the recent strength in crude tanker rates, and we believe that we are at the beginning of a more sustained recovery in the tanker market.” 

“While the tanker market improves, we continue to work on various financing initiatives, including the recent completion of two sale-leaseback transactions and a loan to fund working capital in our revenue sharing agreement (RSA) pooling operations, all of which have further improved Teekay Tankers' liquidity and extended our debt maturity profile.”

Summary of Recent Developments
Completed Financings
In September and November 2018, Teekay Tankers completed two sale-leaseback transactions relating to six vessels and four vessels, respectively.
 
Also in November 2018, Teekay Tankers completed a loan to finance working capital for the Company's RSA pool management operations.
 
These transactions provide a total of approximately $100 million of liquidity after the repayment of outstanding debt related to the ten vessels, of which approximately $40 million of liquidity relates to transactions that closed after September 30, 2018. 
Tanker Market
Crude tanker spot rates firmed counter-seasonally during the third quarter of 2018, which is typically the weakest quarter of the year, as higher OPEC and Russian oil production, coupled with strong crude oil exports out of the U.S. Gulf, offset the impact of seasonally lower oil demand. Crude tanker rates during the third quarter of 2018 averaged higher than rates in the second quarter for the first time since 2014.

Crude tanker rates have continued to strengthen during the early part of the fourth quarter of 2018, particularly in the Atlantic Basin with Aframax tanker rates in this region attaining levels not seen since December 2016 and Suezmax tanker rates averaging the highest since March 2017. While the Pacific Aframax market has not risen as strongly, rates have trended higher than prior quarters. This strength in rates is being driven by high levels of global oil production in recent months, with OPEC adding a net 1.0 million barrels per day (mb/d) of crude oil production to the market since April 2018. Most of this increase has come from the Middle East and Libya, with increased production in these regions more than offsetting lower production from Venezuela and Iran. Russia has added 0.4 mb/d of oil production over the same time frame, which has increased mid-size tanker demand in the Baltic, Black Sea and Mediterranean. U.S. crude oil exports have also increased in recent months, and have averaged over 2 mb/d since May 2018. This is also positive for mid-size tanker demand, due to both direct exports to Europe on Aframaxes and Suezmaxes and through reverse lightering demand in the U.S. Gulf.

New U.S. sanctions on Iranian crude oil imports entered into force on November 5, 2018. However, it is becoming more apparent that the other members of OPEC have sufficient spare oil production capacity to be able to offset any decline in Iranian exports. In addition, the U.S. recently granted waivers to eight countries, allowing them to continue importing Iranian crude for the next six months. The resulting increase in oil production has pushed crude oil prices back below $70/bbl, which is positive for tanker earnings in the near-term due to lower bunker costs. However, it may cause OPEC to revisit production levels in the coming months, which could create some rate volatility through the early part of 2019.

One of the key drivers behind the recent strengthening in crude tanker rates is the very low level of fleet growth seen year-to-date. During the first nine months of 2018, a total of 22.7 million deadweight tonnes (mdwt) of tankers were delivered into the fleet while 19.2 mdwt were removed for scrapping, resulting in net fleet growth of just 3.5 mdwt (or 0.6 percent). Looking ahead, the Company forecasts that fleet growth will increase moderately in 2019 due to a relatively lower level of scrapping, but is expected to remain below long-term average levels of approximately 3 percent. The Company expects that fleet growth will also remain low in 2020 based on the current orderbook and the very limited remaining slots available at shipyards in that year.

Global oil demand remains firm, though forecasting agencies have slightly revised down their outlook for 2019 based on expectations of a modest slowdown in the global economy. Nevertheless, the forecast of 1.4 mb/d oil demand growth in 2019 (average of IEA, EIA and OPEC forecasts), is only marginally lower than estimated growth of 1.5 mb/d in 2018, which is expected to help support crude tanker demand next year. According to the EIA, U.S. crude oil production is forecast to increase by 1.2 mb/d in 2019. Much of this additional production is anticipated to be available for export from the second half of 2019, when new pipeline capacity is due to come online bringing shale oil from the Permian region to the U.S. Gulf coast. Finally, the introduction of the new IMO regulations on sulphur content in bunker fuels due to come into force on January 1, 2020, is expected to be positive for tanker demand due to an increase in refinery throughput, the emergence of new long-haul trade routes, and the potential for floating storage demand for both crude and product tankers.

Revenue days are the total number of calendar days the Company's vessels were in its possession during a period, less the total number of off-hire days during the period associated with major repairs, dry dockings or special or intermediate surveys. Consequently, revenue days represents the total number of days available for the vessel to earn revenue. Idle days, which are days when the vessel is available to earn revenue yet is not employed, are included in revenue days.
(ii)
Includes vessels trading in the Teekay Suezmax RSA and non-pool voyage charters.

Definitions and Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release includes various financial measures that are non-GAAP financial measures as defined under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. These non-GAAP financial measures, which include Adjusted Net (Loss) Income, Free Cash Flow, Net Revenues and Cash Flow from Vessel Operations, are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these measures do not have standardized definitions across companies, and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The Company believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s financial performance, as does management.
Consolidated Financial Measures
Adjusted net (loss) income excludes items of income or loss from GAAP net income that are typically excluded by securities analysts in their published estimates of the Company’s financial results. The Company believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s financial performance, as does management. Please refer to Appendix A of this release for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to net (loss) income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
Cash flow from vessel operations (CFVO) represents income (loss) from operations before depreciation and amortization expense, amortization of in-process revenue contracts, vessel write-downs, and gains or losses on the sale of vessels and equipment. CFVO - Consolidated represents CFVO from vessels that are consolidated on the Company’s financial statements. CFVO - Equity Investments represents the Company’s proportionate share of CFVO from its equity-accounted vessels and other investments. The Company does not control the equity-accounted vessels and investments, and as a result, the Company does not have the unilateral ability to determine whether the cash generated by its equity-accounted vessels and other investments is retained within the entity in which the Company holds the equity-accounted investment or distributed to the Company and other owners. In addition, the Company does not control the timing of such distributions to the Company and other owners. Consequently, readers are cautioned when using total CFVO as a liquidity measure as the amount contributed from CFVO - Equity Investments may not be available to the Company in the periods such CFVO is generated by its equity-accounted vessels and other investments. CFVO is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors and management to measure the operational financial performance of companies. Please refer to Appendices C of this release for reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to income from vessel operations and income from vessel operations of equity-accounted investments, respectively, the most directly comparable GAAP measures reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
Free cash flow (FCF) represents net income (loss), plus depreciation and amortization, unrealized losses from derivatives, certain non-cash items, FCF from equity-accounted investments, loss on sales of vessels, and any write-offs or other non-recurring items, less unrealized gains from derivatives, equity income from the equity-accounted investments, gain on sales of vessels and certain other non-cash items. The Company includes FCF from equity-accounted investments as a component of its FCF. FCF from the equity-accounted investments represents the Company’s proportionate share of FCF from its equity-accounted investments. The Company does not control its equity-accounted investments, and as a result, the Company does not have the unilateral ability to determine whether the cash generated by its equity-accounted investments is retained within the entity in which the Company holds the equity-accounted investment or distributed to the Company and other owners. In addition, the Company does not control the timing of such distributions to the Company and other owners. Consequently, readers are cautioned when using FCF as a liquidity measure as the amount contributed from FCF from the equity-accounted investments may not be available to the Company in the periods such FCF is generated by the equity-accounted investments. FCF is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors and management to evaluate the Company’s financial and operating performance and to assess the Company’s ability to generate cash sufficient to repay debt, pay dividends and undertake capital and dry dock expenditures. Please refer to Appendix B to this release for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to net (loss) income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Entities under common control represent a transfer of a business between entities under common control. As a result, Teekay Tankers consolidated financial statements prior to the date the interests in these entities were actually acquired by the Company are retroactively adjusted to include the results of these entities during the periods they were under common control of Teekay Corporation and had begun operations.
Net revenues represent revenues less voyage expenses. Because the amount of voyage expenses the Company incurs for a particular charter depends upon the type of the charter, the Company uses net revenues to improve the comparability between periods of reported revenues that are generated by the different types of charters and contracts. The Company principally uses net revenues, a non-GAAP financial measure, because the Company believes it provides more meaningful information about the deployment of the Company's vessels and their performance than does revenues, the most directly comparable financial measure under GAAP.
Important Notice to Reader
Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the new revenue accounting standard, which had no impact on net loss but a material effect on revenues and voyage expenses since adoption. The Company previously presented the net allocation for its vessels participating in RSAs as net pool revenues. The Company has determined that it is the principal in voyages its vessels perform that are included in the RSAs. As such, commencing January 1, 2018, the Company presents revenue from those voyages in voyage charter revenues and the difference between this amount and the Company's net allocation from the RSA is presented as voyage expenses. This had the effect of increasing both voyage charter revenues and voyage expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018, and June 30, 2018 and the nine months ended September 30, 2018 by $73.6 million, $67.5 million, and $202.4 million, respectively.

Prior to May 31, 2017, the Company owned 50 percent of Teekay Tanker Operations Ltd. (TTOL) and accounted for this investment using the equity method of accounting. The Company acquired the remaining 50 percent of TTOL on May 31, 2017 from Teekay Corporation, resulting in the Company owning 100 percent of TTOL and consolidating its results. Periods prior to May 31, 2017 have been recast to include 100 percent of TTOL's results on a consolidated basis in accordance with common control accounting as required under GAAP. As a result, the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for periods prior to May 2017 has been retroactively adjusted to include the approximately 13.8 million shares of the Company's Class B common stock issued to Teekay Corporation as consideration for the acquisition. The impact of this recasting is referred to herein as the "Entities under Common Control", and such amounts are summarized for the respective periods in Appendix A.

(2)
Voyage charter revenues include revenues earned from full service lightering activities. Voyage expenses include certain costs associated with full service lightering activities, which include: short-term in-charter expenses, bunker fuel expenses and other port expenses totaling $12.4 million, $22.9 million and $17.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018, June 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, respectively, and $56.7 million and $52.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, respectively.

(3)
Other revenues include lightering support and liquefied natural gas services revenue, and pool management fee and commission revenues earned from TTOL.

(4)
Commencing January 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update 2014-09 as required under GAAP. The Company previously presented the net allocation for its vessels participating in RSAs as net pool revenues. The Company has determined that it is the principal in voyages its vessels perform that are included in the RSAs. As such, commencing January 1, 2018, revenue from those voyages is presented in voyage charter revenues and the difference between this amount and the Company's net allocation from the RSA is presented as voyage expenses. This had the impact of increasing both voyage charter revenues and voyage expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and June 30, 2018 and the nine months ended September 30, 2018 by $73.6 million, $67.5 million, and $202.4 million, respectively. This change has been adopted prospectively from January 1, 2018.

(5)
Includes realized losses and gains relating to interest rate swaps entered into by the Company. For the three months ended September 30, 2018, June 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, the Company recognized a realized gain on its interest rate swaps of $0.7 million, a realized gain of $0.7 million and a realized loss of $0.2 million, respectively, and a realized gain of $1.6 million and a realized loss of $0.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The Company recognized realized gains relating to a time-charter swap agreement of $1.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

(6)
Included in equity (loss) income are the Company’s 50 percent interest in the High-Q Investment Ltd. (High-Q) joint venture, which owns one VLCC tanker, its 50 percent interest in Gemini Tankers L.L.C. (until March 2018, when the remaining capital was returned to the Company), and its proportionate 11.3 percent share of earnings from its investment in Tanker Investments Ltd. (TIL) until November 27, 2017, when the Company completed a merger with TIL. From that date, TIL became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, and it has been consolidated.

(i)
As part of the accounting for the TIL merger, GAAP treats the Company's existing equity investment in TIL as being disposed of at its existing fair value and concurrently repurchased at such fair value, which is included in the cost of the acquisition of the 100 percent controlling interest in TIL. In June 2017, it was determined at that time that recovery of the carrying value of the Company's investment in TIL prior to closing of the merger would be unlikely. Consequently, a non-cash impairment of $28.1 million was required under GAAP to be recognized in the three months ended June 30, 2017 based on the difference between the carrying value of the investment at June 30, 2017 and its fair value based on the TIL share price on that date.

Forward Looking Statements
This release contains forward-looking statements (as defined in Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) which reflect management’s current views with respect to certain future events and performance, including, among other things, statements regarding: the effect of financing transactions recently completed on the Company’s liquidity and future debt maturity profile; expected contract commencement dates; and crude oil and refined product tanker market fundamentals, including the balance of supply and demand in the oil and tanker markets, the occurrence and expected timing of a more sustained tanker market recovery, forecasts of worldwide tanker fleet growth, the amount of tanker scrapping and newbuild tanker deliveries, estimated growth in global oil demand and supply, future tanker rates, future OPEC oil supply, the impact of U.S. crude oil production and exports on mid-size tanker demand, and estimated impact of IMO 2020 regulations on tanker demand. The following factors are among those that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements, which involve risks and uncertainties, and that should be considered in evaluating any such statement: the potential for early termination of charter contracts of existing vessels in the Company's fleet; the inability of charterers to make future charter payments; the inability of the Company to renew or replace charter contracts; changes in tanker rates; changes in the production of, or demand for, oil or refined products; changes in trading patterns significantly affecting overall vessel tonnage requirements; greater or less than anticipated levels of tanker newbuilding orders and deliveries and greater or less than anticipated rates of tanker scrapping; changes in global oil prices; changes in applicable industry laws and regulations and the timing of implementation of new laws and regulations and the impact of such changes; increased costs; and other factors discussed in Teekay Tankers’ filings from time to time with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. The Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect any change in the Company’s expectations with respect thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.
