MONACO, Feb. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. ("Navios Holdings" or "the Company") (NYSE: NM), a global, vertically integrated seaborne shipping and logistics company, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2018.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I am pleased with the results of the fourth quarter and full year of 2018. For the fourth quarter, we reported revenue of $127.4 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $45.5 million.  For the full year, we reported revenue of $517.7 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $179.6 million.”

Angeliki Frangou continued, “During 2018, improved charter markets positively impacted our business results. The Time Charter Equivalent of our fleet was about 30% higher in 2018 compared to 2017. This more than doubled our adjusted EBITDA from core shipping operations. Of course, the first quarter of 2019 has been adversely affected by the Vale tragedy, as well as unexpected weakness due to tariff concerns.”

(2) Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Loss attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders and Adjusted Basic Loss attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders per Share for the three months ended December 31, 2017 exclude $36.3 million impairment losses related to one vessel and intangible assets.

Revenue from dry bulk vessel operations for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was $75.9 million, as compared to $78.6 million for the same period during 2017. The slight decrease in dry bulk revenue was mainly attributable to the decline in freight and time charter market during the periods compared.

Revenue from the logistics business was $39.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018 as compared to $49.9 million for the same period in 2017. The decrease was mainly attributable to (i) a $6.6 million decrease in revenue from the port terminal business, mainly due to the iron ore port interruption of services as a consequence of the fire incident, expected to be recovered from loss of earnings insurance. The insurance amount were reflected as “Other income” in the consolidated financial statements; and (ii) a $5.3 million decrease in revenue from the barge business mainly related to liquid cargo transportation. The overall decrease was partially mitigated by a $1.4 million increase in revenue from the cabotage business mainly due to an increase in operating days of the cabotage fleet.

Revenue of Navios Containers for the period from November 30, 2018 (date of obtaining control) to December 31, 2018 amounted to $12.1 million and consisted of time charter revenues.

Net Loss attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders was $200.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018, as compared to $51.6 million Net Loss attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders for the same period in 2017. Net Loss attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders was affected by items described in the table above. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net Loss attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was $19.0 million, as compared to $15.3 million Adjusted Net Loss attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders for the same period in 2017. This increase was mainly due to (i) a $2.8 million decrease in income tax benefit, (ii) a $1.6 million increase in interest expense and finance cost, net and (iii) a $1.4 million increase in depreciation and amortization. This overall increase of $5.8 million was partially mitigated by (i) a $1.5 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA and (ii) a $0.6 million decrease in amortization for deferred drydock and special survey costs.

Net Loss of Navios Logistics, on a standalone basis, was $2.8 million for the three month period ended December 31, 2018 as compared to $0.2 million for the same period in 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the three months ended December 31, 2018 increased by $1.5 million to $45.5 million, as compared to $44.0 million for the same period in 2017.

This overall increase of $18.0 million was partially offset by (i) a $13.2 million decrease in equity in net (losses)/earnings from affiliated companies, (ii) a $2.2 million increase in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock and special survey costs) and (iii) a $1.1 million decrease in revenue.

EBITDA of Navios Logistics, on a standalone basis, was $16.4 million for the three month period ended December 31, 2018, as compared to $15.0 million for the same period in 2017.

This overall decrease of $57.8 million was partially mitigated by (i) a $15.6 million increase in interest expense and finance cost, net, (ii) a $2.1 million decrease in income tax benefit and (iii) a $0.3 million increase in share-based compensation expense.

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.

Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Loss attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders and Adjusted Basic Loss per Share are “non-U.S. GAAP financial measures” and should not be used in isolation or considered substitutes for net income/(loss), 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.

EBITDA represents net (loss)/income attributable to Navios Holdings' common stockholders before interest and finance costs, before depreciation and amortization, before income taxes and before stock-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA, excluding certain items as described under “Earnings Highlights”. We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as liquidity measures and reconcile EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by operating activities, the most comparable U.S. GAAP liquidity measure. EBITDA is calculated as follows: net cash provided by operating activities adding back, when applicable and as the case may be, the effect of (i) net increase/(decrease) in operating assets, (ii) net (increase)/decrease in operating liabilities, (iii) net interest cost, (iv) deferred finance charges and gains/(losses) on bond and debt extinguishment, (v) (provision)/recovery for losses on accounts receivable, (vi) equity in affiliates, net of dividends received, (vii) payments for drydock and special survey costs, (viii) noncontrolling interest, (ix) gain/ (loss) on sale of assets/ subsidiaries and bargain gain, (x) unrealized (loss)/gain on derivatives, and (xi) loss on sale and reclassification to earnings of available-for-sale securities and impairment charges. Navios Holdings believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are a basis upon which liquidity can be assessed and represents useful information to investors regarding Navios Holdings’ ability to service and/or incur indebtedness, pay capital expenditures, meet working capital requirements and pay dividends. Navios Holdings also believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used (i) by prospective and current lessors as well as potential lenders to evaluate potential transactions; (ii) to evaluate and price potential acquisition candidates; and (iii) by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented to provide additional information with respect to the ability of Navios Holdings to satisfy its respective obligations, including debt service, capital expenditures, working capital requirements and pay dividends. While EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used as measures of operating results and the ability to meet debt service requirements, the definitions of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA used here may not be comparable to those used by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as an analytical tool, and therefore, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the analysis of Navios Holdings’ results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are: (i) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; (ii) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the amounts necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt and other financing arrangements; and (iii) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such capital expenditures. Because of these limitations, among others, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a principal indicator of Navios Holdings’ performance. Furthermore, our calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to that reported by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.

Navios Logistics EBITDA is used to measure its operating performance.

We present Adjusted Net Loss because we believe it assists investors and analysts in comparing our operating performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Our presentation of Adjusted Net Loss adjusts net income/(loss) attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders for the items described above under “Earnings Highlights”.  The definition of Adjusted Net Loss used here may not be comparable to that used by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.

Adjusted Basic Loss Per Share is defined as Adjusted Loss attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders divided by the weighted average number of shares for each of the periods presented.

The following tables provide a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings (including Navios Logistics and Navios Containers) and EBITDA of Navios Logistics and Navios Containers on a stand-alone basis:
