MONACO, July 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Navios Maritime Partners L.P. (“Navios Partners”) (NYSE: NMM), an international owner and operator of dry cargo vessels, today reported its financial results for the second quarter and six month periods ended June 30, 2020.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Navios Partners, stated, “While the Pandemic greatly affected businesses, countries, and people all over the world, the Navios family continues to persevere. For the second quarter of 2020, Navios Partners reported $46.5 million in revenue and $14.3 million in Adjusted EBITDA. Navios Partners also declared a quarterly distribution of $0.05 cents per unit, representing an annual distribution of $0.20 cents per unit.”

Angeliki Frangou continued, “The pandemic’s negative effect on global economic activity can be seen in the charter rates. Year-to-date 2020, the capesize 5TC rate averaged around $9,700 per day, representing about 55% of the 2019 average of $18,000. Despite a difficult 2020, the IMF projects global GDP to increase by 5.4% in 2021 which we expect will positively affect the dry bulk trade.”

Liquidation of Navios Europe II Inc.

On June 29, 2020, the liquidation of Navios Europe II was completed and Navios Partners was allocated $2.7 million in cash and took delivery of two Ultra-Handymax and three Panamax dry bulk vessels together with assumption of loans and working capital.

Financing Arrangements

In June 2020, Navios Partners entered into a new credit facility with a commercial bank for a total amount of $29.5 million for the refinancing of five drybulk vessels that were acquired upon the liquidation of Navios Europe II. The credit facility has an amortization profile of 6.2 years, matures in June 2021 and bears interest at LIBOR plus 400 bps per annum up to December 2020 and 425 bps per annum subsequently.

In June 2020, Navios Partners entered into a new credit facility with a commercial bank for a total amount of $17.0 million for the refinancing of four containerships. The credit facility has an amortization profile of 8.0 years, matures in December 2023 and bears interest at LIBOR plus 350 bps per annum.

Cash Distribution

The Board of Directors of Navios Partners declared a cash distribution for the second quarter of 2020 of $0.05 per unit. The cash distribution is payable on August 13, 2020 to all unitholders of record as of August 10, 2020. The declaration and payment of any further dividends remain subject to the discretion of the Board of Directors and will depend on, among other things, Navios Partners’ cash requirements as measured by market opportunities and restrictions under its credit agreements and other debt obligations and such other factors as the Board of Directors may deem advisable.

Long-Term Cash Flow

Navios Partners has entered into medium to long-term time charter-out agreements for its vessels with a remaining average term of approximately 2.0 years. Navios Partners has currently contracted out 95.0% of its available days for 2020, 41.5% for 2021 and 18.6% for 2022, including index-linked charters, expecting to generate revenues (excluding index-linked charters) of approximately $176.6 million, $93.0 million and $71.9 million, respectively. The average contracted daily charter-out rate for the fleet is $12,512, $22,529 and $28,632 for 2020, 2021 and 2022, respectively.

EARNINGS HIGHLIGHTS

For the following results and the selected financial data presented herein, Navios Partners has compiled condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019. The quarterly information was derived from the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the respective periods.

Three month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019

Time charter and voyage revenues for the three month period ended June 30, 2020 decreased by $ 1.2 million, or 2.5%, to $ 46.5 million, as compared to $ 47.7 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease in time charter and voyage revenues was mainly attributable to the decrease in the time charter equivalent rate, or TCE rate, to $ 11,202 per day for the three month period ended June 30, 2020, from $ 14,130 per day for the three month period ended June 30, 2019. The available days of the fleet increased to 4,029 days for the three month period ended June 30, 2020, as compared to 3,203 days for the three month period ended June 30, 2019.

EBITDA for the three month period ended June 30, 2020 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a $ 6.8 million impairment loss related to three containerships. EBITDA for the three month period ended June 30, 2019 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a $ 3.6 million revision of the estimated guarantee claim receivable. Excluding these items, Adjusted EBITDA decreased by $ 8.0 million to $ 14.3 million for the three month period ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $ 22.3 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to: ( i) a $ 1.2 million decrease in revenue; (ii) a $ 5.4 million increase in vessel operating expenses, mainly due to the increased fleet; (iii) a $ 0.5 million increase in general and administrative fees; (iv) a $ 1.5 million increase in other expense; and (v) at $ 0. 9 million decrease in equity in net earnings of affiliated companies. The above decrease was partially mitigated by a: (i) $ 0.5 million decrease in time charter and travel expenses; and (ii) $ 0.9 million increase in other income.

The reserves for estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures for the three month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 were $ 8.6 million and $ 7.3 million, respectively (please see “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in Exhibit 3).

Navios Partners generated an operating surplus for the three month period ended June 30, 2020 of $ (1.1) million, as compared to $ 6.2 million for the three month period ended June 30, 2019. Operating Surplus is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors to assist in evaluating a partnership’s ability to make quarterly cash distributions (please see “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in Exhibit 3).

Net Loss for the three month period ended June 30, 2020 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a $ 6.8 million impairment loss related to three containerships. Net Loss for the three month period ended June 30, 2019 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a: (i) $ 3.6 million revision of the estimated guarantee claim receivable; and (ii) $ 1.5 million write-off of deferred finance fees and discount related to the $ 73.5 million prepayments of the Term Loan B Facility in the second quarter of 2019. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net Loss for the three month period ended June 30, 2020 amounted to $ 7.8 million compared to $ 1.4 million loss for the three month period ended June 30, 2019. The increase in Adjusted Net Loss of $ 6.4 million was due to: (i) an $ 8.0 million decrease in Adjusted EBITDA ; (ii) a $ 0. 9 million increase in direct vessel expenses; (iii) a $ 0.4 million increase in depreciation and amortization expenses; and (iv) a $ 1.6 million decrease in interest income. The above increase was partially mitigated by a $ 4.5 million decrease in interest expense and finance cost, net.

Six month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019

Time charter and voyage revenues for the six month period ended June 30, 2020 decreased by $ 1.5 million, or 1.6%, to $ 93.0 million, as compared to $ 94.6 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease in time charter and voyage revenues was mainly attributable to the decrease in the TCE rate, to $ 10,957 per day for the six month period ended June 30, 2020, from $ 13,664 per day for the six month period ended June 30, 2019. The available days of the fleet increased to 8,126 days for the six month period ended June 30, 2020, as compared to 6,480 days for the six month period ended June 30, 2019, mainly due to the increase of the fleet.

EBITDA for the six month period ended June 30, 2020 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a $ 6.9 million loss related to the other-than-temporary impairment recognized in the Navios Partners' receivable from Navios Europe II and a $ 6.8 million impairment loss related to three containerships. EBITDA for the six month period ended June 30, 2019 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a: (i) $ 7.3 million impairment loss on the sale of the Navios Galaxy I; and (ii) $ 3.6 million revision of the estimated guarantee claim receivable. Excluding these items, Adjusted EBITDA decreased by $ 11.6 million to $ 33.4 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $ 45.0 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to: ( i) a $ 1.5 million decrease in revenue; (ii) an $ 11.0 million increase in vessel operating expenses, mainly due to the increased fleet; (iii) a $ 0.6 million increase in general and administrative expenses; and (iv) a $ 1.8 million increase in other expense. The above decrease was partially mitigated by a: (i) $ 1.0 million decrease in time charter and travel expenses; (ii) $ 1.6 million increase in other income; and (iii) $ 0.8 million increase in equity in net earnings of affiliated companies.

The reserves for estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures for the six month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 were $ 17.2 million and $ 14.7 million, respectively (please see “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in Exhibit 3).

Navios Partners generated an operating surplus for the six month period ended June 30, 2020 of $ 3.3 million, as compared to $ 11.9 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2019. Operating Surplus is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors to assist in evaluating a partnership’s ability to make quarterly cash distributions (please see “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in Exhibit 3).

Net Loss for the six month period ended June 30, 2020 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a $ 6.9 million loss related to the other-than-temporary impairment recognized in the Navios Partners' receivable from Navios Europe II and a $ 6.8 million impairment loss related to three containerships. Net Loss for the six month period ended June 30, 2019 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a: (i) $ 7.3 million impairment loss on the sale of the Navios Galaxy I; (ii) $ 3.6 million revision of the estimated guarantee claim receivable; and (iii) $ 1.5 million write-off of deferred finance fees and discount related to the $ 73.5 million prepayments of the Term Loan B Facility in the first half of 2019. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net Loss for the six month period ended June 30, 2020 amounted to $ 11. 7 million compared to $ 3.6 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2019. The increase in Adjusted Net Loss of $ 8.1 million was due to: (i) an $ 11.6 million decrease in adjusted EBITDA; (ii) a $ 1.8 million increase in direct vessel expenses; (iii) a $ 0.6 million increase in depreciation and amortization expense; and (iv) a $ 3.2 million decrease in interest income. The above decrease was partially mitigated by a $ 9.1 million decrease in interest expense and finance cost, net.

  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. Operating days include ballast days between voyages. 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 revenue generating available days, 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 and time charter revenues 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

1. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA represents net loss attributable to Navios Partners' unitholders before interest and finance costs, before depreciation and amortization (including intangible accelerated amortization) and income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA before impairment losses. Navios Partners uses Adjusted EBITDA as a liquidity measure and reconcile EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by operating activities, the most comparable US 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 decrease / (increase) in operating assets; (ii) net increase in operating liabilities; (iii) net interest cost; (iv) amortization and write-off of deferred financing cost; (v) equity in net earnings of affiliates, net of dividends received; (vi) impairment charges; (vii) non-cash accrued interest income and amortization of deferred revenue; (viii) equity compensation expense; (ix) non-cash accrued interest income from receivable from affiliates; and (x) amortization of operating lease right-of-use asset. 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,

Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA excluding certain items, as described under “Earnings Highlights”.

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 US 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,

2. Operating Surplus

Operating Surplus represents net income adjusted for depreciation and amortization expense, non-cash interest expense, non-cash interest income, estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures and one-off items. Maintenance and replacement capital expenditures are those capital expenditures required to maintain over the long term the operating capacity of, or the revenue generated by, Navios Partners' capital assets.

Operating Surplus is a quantitative measure used in the publicly-traded partnership investment community to assist in evaluating a partnership's ability to make quarterly cash distributions. Operating Surplus is not required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.

3. Available Cash

Available Cash generally means for each fiscal quarter, all cash on hand at the end of the quarter:

  • less the amount of cash reserves established by the Board of Directors to:

    • provide for the proper conduct of Navios Partners' business (including reserve for maintenance and replacement capital expenditures);

    • comply with applicable law, any of Navios Partners' debt instruments, or other agreements; or

    • provide funds for distributions to the unitholders and to the general partner for any one or more of the next four quarters;

  • plus all cash on hand on the date of determination of available cash for the quarter resulting from working capital borrowings made after the end of the quarter. Working capital borrowings are generally borrowings that are made under any revolving credit or similar agreement used solely for working capital purposes or to pay distributions to partners.

Available Cash is a quantitative measure used in the publicly-traded partnership investment community to assist in evaluating a partnership's ability to make quarterly cash distributions. Available cash is not required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.
