(Expressed in United States Dollars)

1. Basis of Presentation and General Information

Dorian LPG Ltd. (“Dorian”) was incorporated on July 1, 2013 under the laws of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, is headquartered in the United States and is engaged in the transportation of liquefied petroleum gas (“LPG”) worldwide. Specifically, Dorian and its subsidiaries (together “we”, “us”, “our”, or the “Company”) are focused on owning and operating very large gas carriers (“VLGCs”), each with a cargo carrying capacity of greater than 80,000 cbm, in the LPG shipping industry. As of December 31, 2020, our fleet consists of twenty-four VLGCs, including nineteen fuel-efficient 84,000 cbm ECO-design VLGCs (“ECO-VLGCs”), three 82,000 cbm VLGCs and two time chartered-in VLGCs. As of December 31, 2020, ten of our ECO-VLGCs are equipped with exhaust gas cleaning systems (commonly referred to as “scrubbers”) to reduce sulfur emissions. We have commitments related to scrubbers on an additional two of our VLGCs. We provide in-house commercial management services for all of our vessels, including our vessels deployed in the Helios Pool (defined below), which may also receive commercial management services from Phoenix (defined below). Excluding our time chartered-in vessels, we provide in-house technical management services for all of our vessels, including our vessels deployed in the Helios Pool (defined below).

On April 1, 2015, Dorian and Phoenix Tankers Pte. Ltd. (“Phoenix”) began operations of Helios LPG Pool LLC (the “Helios Pool”), which entered into pool participation agreements for the purpose of establishing and operating, as charterer, under variable rate time charters to be entered into with owners or disponent owners of VLGCs, a commercial pool of VLGCs whereby revenues and expenses are shared. Refer to Note 3 below for further description of the Helios Pool.

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and related Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) rules for interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In our opinion, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring items, necessary for a fair presentation of financial position, operating results and cash flows have been included in the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes. Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified for consistency with the current year presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on the reported results of operations or cash flows. The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes for the year ended March 31, 2020 included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on June 12, 2020.

Our interim results are subject to seasonal and other fluctuations, and the operating results for any quarter are therefore not necessarily indicative of results that may be otherwise expected for the entire year.

COVID-19

The outbreak of COVID-19, which originated in China in December 2019 and subsequently spread to most nations of the world, has resulted in the implementation of numerous actions taken by governments and governmental agencies in an attempt to mitigate the spread of the virus. These measures have resulted in a significant reduction in global economic activity and extreme volatility in the global financial markets. The reduction of economic activity has significantly reduced the global demand for oil, refined petroleum products (most notably aviation fuel) and LPG. We expect that the impact of the COVID-19 virus and the uncertainty in the supply and demand for fossil fuels, including LPG, will continue to cause volatility in the commodity markets. We have experienced and may continue to experience additional costs to effect crew changes. Although to date there has not been any significant effect on our operating activities due to COVID-19, other than an approximately 60-day delay associated with the drydocking of one of our vessels in China that left drydock in April 2020, the extent to which COVID-19 will impact our results of operation and financial condition will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including among others, new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the virus and the actions to contain or treat its impact or any resurgence or mutation of the virus, the availability of vaccines and their global deployment, the development of effective treatments, the imposition of effective public safety and other protective measures and the public’s response to such

measures. There continues to be a high level of uncertainty relating to how the pandemic will evolve, how governments and consumers will react and progress on the approval and distribution of vaccines. An estimate of the impact cannot therefore be made at this time.

2. Significant Accounting Policies

The same accounting policies have been followed in these unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements as those applied in the preparation of our consolidated audited financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2020 (refer to Note 2 to our consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2020), except as discussed herein.

Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

 

In March 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued ASU No. 2020-04, “Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting (“ASU 2020-04”).” ASU 2020-04 provides temporary optional expedients and exceptions to the guidance in U.S. GAAP on contract modifications and hedge accounting to ease the financial reporting burdens related to the expected market transition from LIBOR and other interbank offered rates to alternative reference rates. This ASU is effective for adoption at any time between March 12, 2020 and December 31, 2022. We are currently evaluating the impact of this adoption on our condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

3.  Transactions with Related Parties

Dorian (Hellas), S.A.

Dorian (Hellas) S.A. (“DHSA”) formerly provided technical, crew, commercial management, insurance and accounting services to our vessels and had agreements to outsource certain of these services to Eagle Ocean Transport Inc. (“Eagle Ocean Transport”), which is 100% owned by Mr. John C. Hadjipateras, our Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Dorian LPG (USA) LLC and its subsidiaries entered into an agreement with DHSA, retroactive to July 2014 and superseding an agreement between Dorian LPG (UK) Ltd. and DHSA, for the provision by Dorian LPG (USA) LLC and its subsidiaries of certain chartering and marine operation services to DHSA, for which income was earned and included in “Other income-related parties” totaling less than $0.1 million for both the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 and $0.1 million for both the nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019.

As of December 31, 2020, $1.1 million was due from DHSA and included in “Due from related parties” in the unaudited interim condensed consolidated balance sheets. As of March 31, 2020, $1.3 million was due from DHSA and included in “Due from related parties” in the audited consolidated balance sheets.

Helios LPG Pool LLC

On April 1, 2015, Dorian and Phoenix began operations of the Helios Pool, which entered into pool participation agreements for the purpose of establishing and operating, as charterer, under variable rate time charters to be entered into with owners or disponent owners of VLGCs, a commercial pool of VLGCs whereby revenues and expenses are shared. We hold a 50% interest in the Helios Pool as a joint venture with Phoenix and all significant rights and obligations are equally shared by both parties. All profits of the Helios Pool are distributed to the pool participants based on pool points assigned to each vessel as variable charter hire and, as a result, there are no profits available to the equity investors as a share of equity. We have determined that the Helios Pool is a variable interest entity as it does not have sufficient equity at risk. We do not consolidate the Helios Pool because we are not the primary beneficiary and do not have a controlling financial interest. In consideration of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 810-10-50-4e, the significant factors considered and judgments made in determining that the power to direct the activities of the Helios Pool that most significantly impact the entity’s economic performance are shared, in that all significant performance activities which relate to approval of pool policies and strategies related to pool customers and the marketing of the pool for the procurement

of customers for the pool vessels, addition of new pool vessels and the pool cost management, require unanimous board consent from a board consisting of two members from each joint venture investor. Further, in accordance with the guidance in ASC 810-10-25-38D, the Company and Phoenix are not related parties as defined in ASC 850 nor are they de facto agents pursuant to ASC 810-10, the power over the significant activities of the Helios Pool is shared, and no party is the primary beneficiary in the Helios Pool, or has a controlling financial interest. As of December 31, 2020, the Helios Pool operated thirty-three VLGCs, including twenty-two vessels from our fleet (including two vessels time chartered-in from an unrelated party), three Phoenix vessels, five from other participants, and three time chartered-in vessels.

As of December 31, 2020, we had net receivables from the Helios Pool of $97.6 million (net of an amount due to Helios Pool of $0.2 million which is reflected under “Due to related Parties”), including $24.2 million of working capital contributed for the operation of our vessels in the pool (of which $1.1 million is classified as current). As of March 31, 2020, we had net receivables from the Helios Pool of $88.1 million (net of an amount due to Helios Pool of $0.4 million which is reflected under “Due to related Parties”), including $24.2 million of working capital contributed for the operation of our vessels in the pool (of which $1.1 million is classified as current). Our maximum exposure to losses from the pool as of December 31, 2020 is limited to the receivables from the pool. The Helios Pool does not have any third-party debt obligations. The Helios Pool has entered into commercial management agreements with each of Dorian LPG (UK) Ltd. and Phoenix as commercial managers and has appointed both commercial managers as the exclusive commercial managers of pool vessels. Fees for commercial management services provided by Dorian LPG (UK) Ltd. are included in “Other income-related parties” in the unaudited interim condensed consolidated statement of operations and were $0.5 million and $0.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and $1.5 million and $1.2 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Additionally, we receive a fixed reimbursement of expenses such as costs for security guards and war risk insurance for vessels operating in high risk areas from the Helios Pool, for which we earned $0.9 million and $0.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020, and 2019, respectively, and $2.9 million and $0.9 million for the nine months ended  December 31, 2020, and 2019, respectively, and are included in “Other revenues, net” in the unaudited interim condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Through our vessel owning subsidiaries, we have chartered vessels to the Helios Pool during the nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019. The time charter revenue from the Helios Pool is variable depending upon the net results of the pool, operating days and pool points for each vessel. The Helios Pool enters into voyage and time charters with external parties and receives freight and related revenue and, where applicable, incurs voyage costs such as bunkers, port costs and commissions. At the end of each month, the Helios Pool calculates net pool revenues using gross revenues, less voyage expenses of all pool vessels, less fixed time charter hire for any chartered-in vessels, less the general and administrative expenses of the pool as variable rate time charter hire for the relevant vessel to participants based on pool points (vessel attributes such as cargo carrying capacity, scrubber-equipped, fuel consumption, and speed are taken into consideration) and number of days the vessel participated in the pool in the period. Net pool revenues, less any amounts required for working capital of the Helios Pool, are distributed, to the extent they have been collected from third-party customers of the Helios Pool. We recognize net pool revenues on a monthly basis, when each relevant vessel has participated in the pool during the period and the amount of net pool revenues for the month can be estimated reliably. Revenue earned from the Helios Pool is presented in Note 10.
