HIGHLIGHTS -- RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Navios Holdings

Formation of Navios Asia LLC

In May 2013, Navios Holdings formed Navios Asia LLC ("Navios Asia") in partnership with a significant ship owner and operator based in Japan (the "Asian Partner"). Navios Holdings will own 51% and appoint three members to the board.  The Asian Partner will own 49% and appoint two members to the board. 

Navios Asia will serve as an acquisition vehicle for Japanese-built dry cargo vessels.  Navios Asia has initially agreed to acquire five Panamax and one Kamsarmax vessel, with an average age of 6.1 years, for $114.0 million. 

Navios Asia expects to finance the acquisition of these vessels through approximately $40.0 million of equity, of which Navios Holdings will contribute $20.4 million and the Asian Partner will contribute $19.6 million.  The balance of the purchase price is expected to be financed by debt.

Operations

Navios Holdings will administer Navios Asia and provide commercial management to the fleet whilst the Asian Partner will provide technical management.  Both will be reasonably compensated for their services.

Navios Asia expects to take delivery of the vessels during the third quarter of 2013. Five of the vessels are subject to charters with an average charter rate of $11,474, with optional years at higher rates.

Strategic Partnership with HSH Nordbank AG

In April 2013, Navios Holdings and Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation ("Navios Acquisition") executed a binding letter of intent to acquire, through a new joint venture ("Navios JV"), ten vessels, composed of five product tankers and five container vessels with an average age of 5.5 years, from debtors of HSH Nordbank AG ("HSH").

It is estimated that the purchase price to be paid to HSH will consist of $130.0 million in cash and the assumption of the HSH Subordinated Participating Loans. It is anticipated that the cash payment will be funded as follows:

  • $10.0 million, from an investment by Navios JV funded by Navios Holdings and Navios Acquisition; and
  • $120.0 million, from the proceeds of a senior bank financing to be secured with a first-priority mortgage on the vessels.

The closing of the transaction is subject to a number of conditions, and no assurance can be provided that the transaction will be concluded as contemplated, if at all.

Fleet Developments

Acquisition of 4 vessels

During May 2013, Navios Holdings agreed to acquire one 2006-built Panamax vessel and three 2005-built Panamax vessels with an average age of 7.8 years, for an aggregate purchase price of $66.0 million.

The four vessels are expected to be delivered into Navios Holdings' fleet in the third quarter of 2013. The Company expects to finance the acquisition of the four vessels through new debt and existing cash.

Chartered-in Fleet Developments

In April 2013, Navios Holdings agreed to postpone the deliveries of two committed charter-in vessels, the Navios Felix, a newbuilding Capesize vessel, and the Navios Venus, a newbuilding Ultra Handymax vessel, initially expected to be delivered in Q3 2013 and Q4 2013, respectively. The new vessels will be new Eco design vessels in exchange for an additional daily cost of $350 for the Navios Felix and $200 for the Navios Venus. The Navios Felix delivery was postponed to the first half of 2016 and the Navios Venus delivery was postponed to the first quarter of 2015 having an expected combined annualized positive effect of $7.3 million.

The dividend is payable on June 26, 2013 to stockholders of record as of June 18, 2013.

Revenue from drybulk vessel operations for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $60.6 million as compared to $101.9 million for the same period during 2012. The decrease in drybulk revenue was mainly attributable to a decrease in the time charter equivalent rate ("TCE") per day by 45.0% to $11,820 per day in the first quarter of 2013 following the receipt in advance of $175.4 million due to restructuring of credit default insurance, as compared to $21,496 per day in the same period of 2012. This decrease was partially offset by (i) an increase in available days for owned vessels by 6.1% to 2,677 days in the first quarter of 2013 from 2,524 days in the same period of 2012 and (ii) an increase in the long-term and short-term charter-in fleet available days of 58 days and 12 days, respectively.

Revenue from the logistics business was $73.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to $50.1 million for the same period of 2012. This increase was mainly attributable to an increase in (i) rates in the dry port terminal; (ii) the cabotage fleet's utilization; (iii) the revenue from liquid cargo transportation due to higher rates; and (iv) the Paraguayan liquid port's volume and price of products sold.

EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the three months ended March 31, 2013 decreased by $24.1 million to $38.5 million as compared to $62.6 million for the same period of 2012. The $24.1 million decrease in EBITDA was primarily due to: (i) an $18.2 million decrease in revenue; (ii) an $8.3 million increase in time charter, voyage and logistics business expenses; (iii) a $1.4 million increase in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock and special survey costs); (iv) a $1.8 million increase in other expense, net; and (v) a $3.0 million increase in net income attributable to the noncontrolling interest. The overall variance of $32.7 million was mitigated by: (i) a decrease in general and administrative expenses of $3.1 million (excluding share-based compensation expenses) and (ii) a $5.5 million increase in equity in net earnings from affiliated companies.

EBITDA of Navios Logistics was $14.1 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2013 as compared to $8.7 million for the same period in 2012.

Net loss of Navios Holdings for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was a $10.2 million loss as compared to $9.5 million of income for the same period of 2012. The decrease of net income by $19.7 million was mainly due to: (i) a decrease in EBITDA of $24.1 million; (ii) an increase in interest income/expense and finance cost, net of $0.1 million; and (iii) an increase of $0.3 million in amortization for deferred drydock and special survey costs. This decrease was partially offset by: (i) a decrease in depreciation and amortization of $1.5 million; (ii) an increase in income tax benefit of $2.8 million; and (iii) a decrease of $0.5 million in share-based compensation expense.

Fleet Summary Data:

The following table reflects certain key indicators indicative of the performance of the Navios Holdings' drybulk operations (excluding the Navios Logistics fleet) and its fleet performance for the three month period ended March 31, 2013 and 2012.

           
  Three Month     Three Month  
  Period Ended     Period Ended  
  Mach 31,     March 31,  
  2013     2012  
  (Unaudited)     (Unaudited)  
Available Days (1)   4,330       4,107

Equivalent Vessels (4)   48       45  
TCE (5) $ 11,820     $ 21,496  
   
(1) Available days for the fleet are total calendar days the vessels were in Navios Holdings' possession for the relevant period after subtracting off-hire days associated with major repairs, drydocking or special surveys. The shipping industry uses available days to measure the number of days in a relevant period during which vessels should be capable of generating revenues.
   
(2) Operating days are the number of available days in the relevant period less the aggregate number of days that the vessels are off-hire due to any reason, including unforeseen circumstances. The shipping industry uses operating days to measure the aggregate number of days in a relevant period during which vessels actually generate revenues.
   
(3) Fleet utilization is the percentage of time that Navios Holdings' vessels were available for generating revenue, and is determined by dividing the number of operating days during a relevant period by the number of available days during that period. The shipping industry uses fleet utilization to measure a company's efficiency in finding suitable employment for its vessels.
   
(4) Equivalent Vessels is defined as the total available days during a relevant period divided by the number of days of this period.
   
(5) TCE is defined as voyage and time charter revenues less voyage expenses during a relevant period divided by the number of available days during the period.

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. EBITDA is a "non-GAAP financial measure" 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 to satisfy its 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.

Navios Logistics EBITDA is used to measure company's operating performance.

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