MONACO, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Navios Maritime Partners L.P. (“Navios Partners”) (NYSE: NMM), an international owner and operator of dry cargo and tanker vessels, today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairwoman and Chief Executive Officer of Navios Partners stated, “I am pleased with the results for the first quarter of 2022. During the first quarter of 2022, Navios Partners recorded revenue of $236.6 million, EBITDA of $126.1 million and net income of $85.7 million, or $2.78 earnings per common unit.”

Angeliki Frangou continued, “We stand at the crossroads of a war in Ukraine, rising interest rates and a zero-Covid policy in China. There is no crystal ball to understand how this will evolve. In the meantime, governments and companies are quick to act to satisfy their short term needs as they consider long-term policies in light of these uncertainties.”

Angeliki Frangou also stated, “We believe our diversified structure offers the opportunity for continuous accretive growth. As previously announced, this quarter we agreed to acquire four Aframax / LR2 tankers on the back of charter commitments from an investment grade counterparty. These vessels are designed with the latest technology and can carry either crude or products. Through this transaction, we entered a new sub-segment with reduced risk and excellent long-term prospects.”

Fleet Update

  • Acquisition of four 115,000 dwt Aframax/LR2 Newbuilding vessels in April 2022

In April 2022, Navios Partners agreed to purchase four 115,000 dwt Aframax/LR2 newbuilding vessels for a purchase price of $58.5 million each (plus $4.2 million in additional features). The vessels have been designed with the latest technology to optimize efficiency. They are expected to be delivered into Navios Partners’ fleet during 2024 and the first quarter of 2025. The closing of the transaction is subject to completion of customary documentation.

$185 million Secured Long-term Time Charters for four vessels

Navios Partners has secured new long-term time charters for four vessels which are expected to generate approximately $185 million of contracted revenue.

  • Two 115,000 dwt Aframax/LR2 newbuilding vessels, expected to be delivered in 2024, have been chartered-out for an average period of 60 months, at a net rate of $25,576 per day. The charterer has an option to extend the charter for a further five one-year options at rates increasing by $1,234 per day each year. In addition, the charterer has the option to charter one or both of the two additional tanker vessels on identical terms. The option can be exercised by mid October 2022.

  • One 310,000 dwt newbuilding VLCC expected to be delivered in second half 2022, has been bareboat chartered-out for an average period of 22 months, at a floating rate on adjusted TD3C-WS with a floor of $22,572 net per day and ceiling of $29,700 net per day.

  • One 4,250 TEU containership has been chartered-out for an average period of 62 months, at an average net rate of $40,743 per day (2.0x the current average contracted net rate of $20,845).

Following the above charters, Navios Partners has $2.8 billion in contracted revenue through 2031.

Financing Update

On May 9, 2022, Navios Partners entered into a new credit facility with a commercial bank for a total amount of up to $25.2 million in order to refinance existing indebtedness and for working capital purposes. The credit facility: (i) has an amortization profile of approximately six years; (ii) matures in the second quarter of 2027; and (iii) bears interest at Term Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) plus credit adjustment spread plus 250 bps per annum.

On March 28, 2022, Navios Partners entered into a new credit facility with a commercial bank for a total amount of up to $55.0 million in order to refinance the existing indebtedness of three of its vessels and for general corporate purposes. The credit facility matures in March 2027 and bears interest at daily cumulative or non-cumulative compounded RFR rate (as defined in the loan agreement) plus 2.25% per annum. On March 31, 2022, the entire amount was drawn under this loan.

Three month periods ended March 31, 2022 and 2021

Time charter and voyage revenues for the three month period ended March 31, 2022 increased by approximately $171.5 million, or 263.4%, to $236.6 million, as compared to $65.1 million for the same period in 2021. The increase in revenue was mainly attributable to the increase in the size of our fleet and to the increase in Time Charter Equivalent (“TCE”) rate. For the three month period ended March 31, 2022, TCE rate increased by 37.4% to $20,386 per day, as compared to $14,836 per day for the same period in 2021. The available days of the fleet increased by 164.1% to 11,228 days for the three month period ended March 31, 2022, as compared to 4,252 for the same period in 2021 mainly due to the NMCI Merger and the NNA Merger.

EBITDA of Navios Partners for the three month periods ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 was affected by the items described in the table above. Excluding these items, Adjusted EBITDA increased by approximately $92.4 million to $126.1 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2022, as compared to $33.7 million for the same period in 2021. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to a: (i) $171.5 million increase in time charter and voyage revenues; and (ii) $0.5 million decrease in loss on sale of vessels. The above increase was partially mitigated by: (i) a $50.2 million increase in vessel operating expenses, mainly due to the increased fleet; (ii) a $14.6 million increase in time charter and voyage expenses; (iii) an $9.0 million increase in general and administrative expenses, mainly due to the increased fleet; (iv) a $4.9 million increase in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock, special survey costs and other capitalized items); and (v) a $0.9 million increase in other expense, net.

Net income for the three month periods ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 was affected by the items described in the table above. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net Income for the three month period ended March 31, 2022 amounted to $85.7 million as compared to $11.8 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2021. The increase in Adjusted Net Income was primarily due to a: (i) $92.4 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA; and (ii) $21.8 million increase in amortization of the unfavorable lease terms. The above increase was partially mitigated by a: (i) $29.8 million increase in depreciation and amortization expense; (ii) $7.4 million increase in interest expense and finance cost, net; (iii) $3.0 million increase in amortization of deferred drydock, special survey costs and other capitalized items; and (iv) $0.1 million decrease in interest income.

Fleet Employment Profile

The following table reflects certain key indicators of Navios Partners’ core fleet performance for the three month periods ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 (including the Navios Containers’ fleet and Navios Acquisition’s fleet beginning from April 1, 2021 and August 26, 2021, respectively).

(1

)

Available days for the fleet represent total calendar days the vessels were in Navios Partners’ possession for the relevant period after subtracting off-hire days associated with scheduled repairs, dry dockings or special surveys and ballast days relating to voyages. The shipping industry uses available days to measure the number of days in a relevant period during which a vessel is 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 Partners’ 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 efficiency in finding employment for vessels and minimizing the amount of days that its vessels are off-hire for reasons other than scheduled repairs, dry dockings or special surveys.

(4

)

TCE rate: Time Charter Equivalent rate per day is defined as voyage, time charter revenues and bareboat charter-out revenues (grossed up by currently applicable fixed vessel operating expenses) less voyage expenses during a period divided by the number of available days during the period. The TCE rate per day is a standard shipping industry performance measure used primarily to present the actual daily earnings generated by vessels on various types of charter contracts for the number of available days of the fleet.

Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings per Common Unit, basic and diluted 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 income before interest and finance costs, depreciation and amortization (including intangible accelerated amortization) and income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA excluding certain items, as described under “Earnings Highlights”. Navios Partners uses Adjusted EBITDA as a liquidity measure and reconciles EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by operating activities, the most comparable U.S. GAAP liquidity measure. EBITDA in this document 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) amortization and write-off of deferred financing cost; (v) equity in net earnings of affiliated companies; (vi) non-cash accrued interest income and amortization of deferred revenue; (vii) stock-based compensation expense; (viii) amortization of operating lease right-of-use asset; (ix) loss on sale of assets and (x) bargain purchase gain. Navios Partners believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are each the basis upon which liquidity can be assessed and presents useful information to investors regarding Navios Partners’ ability to service and/or incur indebtedness, pay capital expenditures, meet working capital requirements and make cash distributions. Navios Partners also believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used: (i) by 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.

Each of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the analysis of Navios Partners’ 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; and (ii) 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, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a principal indicator of Navios Partners’ 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.

We present Adjusted Net Income by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Our presentation of Adjusted Net Income adjusts net income for the items described above under “Earnings Highlights”. The definition of Adjusted Net Income used here may not be comparable to that used by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation. Adjusted Basic Earnings per Common Unit is defined as Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average number of common units outstanding for each of the periods presented, basic and diluted.
