Navios Holdings' consolidated revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2012 decreased by $4.6 million to $152.0 million as compared to $156.6 million for the same period during 2011.

Revenue from drybulk vessel operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $101.9 million as compared to $112.3 million for the same period during 2011. The decrease in drybulk revenue was mainly attributable to (i) a decrease in Time Charter Equivalents ("TCE") per day by 12.7% to $21,496 per day in the first quarter of 2012 as compared to $24,622 per day in the same period of 2011; and (ii) a decrease in short-term charter-in fleet available days by 122 days. This decrease was partially offset by an increase in long-term charter-in fleet available days by 247 days.

Revenue from the logistics business was $50.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to $44.4 million for the same period of 2011. This increase was mainly attributable to: (i) an increase in both volumes and rates at the dry and the liquid port; and (ii) an increase in the liquid port's volume and the price of products sold.

EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the three months ended March 31, 2012 increased by $51.6 million to $62.6 million as compared to $11.0 million for the same period of 2011. EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the three months ended March 31, 2011 has been affected by the items mentioned in the footnote to the table above. Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the three months ended March 31, 2012 decreased by $4.9 million to $62.6 million as compared to $67.5 million for the same period of 2011. The $4.9 million decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to: (i) a decrease in revenue of $4.6 million; (ii) an increase in time charter, voyage and port terminal expenses of $3.0 million; (iii) an increase in general and administrative expenses of $0.6 million (excluding share-based compensation expenses); and (iv) an increase in other expenses of $0.4 million. The overall variance of $8.6 million was partially offset by: (i) a decrease in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred dry dock and special survey costs) of $0.9 million; (ii) a decrease in loss from derivatives of $0.2 million; (iii) a decrease of $2.3 million in income attributable to the noncontrolling interest; and (iv) an increase of $0.3 million in equity in net earnings of affiliated companies.

EBITDA of Navios Logistics was $8.7 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2012 as compared to $9.5 million for the same period in 2011.

Net income of Navios Holdings for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $9.5 million as compared to a net loss of $36.7 million for the same period of 2011. Net loss of Navios Holdings for the three months ended March 31, 2011 has been affected by the items mentioned in the footnote to the table above. Adjusted Net Income of Navios Holdings for the three months period ended March 31, 2012 was $9.5 million as compared to $19.8 million for the same period of 2011. The decrease of Adjusted Net Income by $10.3 million was mainly due to: (i) a decrease in Adjusted EBITDA of $4.9 million; (ii) an increase in interest income/expense and finance cost, net of $4.1 million; (iii) an increase in depreciation and amortization of $0.6 million; (iv) an increase of $0.5 million in amortization for drydock and special survey costs; and (v) an increase of $0.2 million in share-based compensation expense.

Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA represents net income plus interest and finance costs plus depreciation and amortization and income taxes, if any, unless otherwise stated. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA excluding certain items as described under "Financial Highlights". EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are "non-GAAP financial measures" and should not be considered a substitute for net income, cash flow from operating activities and other operations or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.

EBITDA is presented to provide additional information with respect to the ability of Navios Holdings, Navios Acquisition and Navios Logistics to satisfy their respective obligations including debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements. While EBITDA is frequently used as a measure of operating results and the ability to meet debt service requirements, the definition of EBITDA used here may not be comparable to that used by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.

The following tables provide a reconciliation of EBITDA of Navios Holdings, Navios Acquisition and Navios Logistics, which in the case of Navios Holdings is on a consolidated basis, and Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings on a consolidated basis:
