HIGHLIGHTS -- RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Vessel Acquisitions

Navios Containers acquired four containerships since the end of the first quarter of 2018 for $131.2 million in aggregate, increasing its total fleet size to 26 vessels with a total fleet capacity of 124,101 TEU, including one containership of which Navios Containers expects to take delivery in Q3/Q4 2018. Fleet capacity has grown from 21 to 26 vessels since the end of 2017, representing a fleet capacity growth of 40% during the period.

On July 30, Navios Containers agreed to acquire one 2009-built 4,563 TEU containership from an unrelated third party for a purchase price of $13.9 million. The Company expects to take delivery of the vessel in Q3/Q4 2018. The acquisition of the vessel is expected to be financed with $9.0 million of additional bank debt on terms consistent with existing credit facilities and the balance with available cash.

On July 2, 2018, Navios Containers took delivery of the YM Utmost and YM Unity, two 2006-built 8,204 TEU containerships. The vessels were acquired for an aggregate purchase price of $67.0 million from Navios Maritime Partners L.P. ("Navios Partners"). These vessels are time chartered out at a net daily charter rate of $34,266 per vessel until August 2018 and October 2018, respectively. The acquisition of the YM Utmost and YM Unity was unanimously approved by a Special Committee of the independent members of the Board of Directors of Navios Containers. The acquisition of the vessels from Navios Partners was financed with a new $36.0 million term loan facility and the balance with available cash. The term loan facility has an amortization profile of 7 years, matures in June 2022 and bears interest at LIBOR plus 325 bps per annum.

On May 30, 2018, Navios Containers took delivery of the Navios Unison, a 2010-built, 10,000 TEU containership. The vessel was acquired from an unrelated third party for a purchase price of $50.3 million. The vessel is chartered out at a net rate of $26,663 per day until March 2019. The acquisition of the vessel was financed with cash on the balance sheet and a new $25.0 million term loan facility. The facility has an amortization profile of 9 years, matures in May 2023 and bears interest at LIBOR plus 300 bps per annum.

Acquisition of Five Containerships and Options to Acquire Four Additional Containerships

As previously announced, Navios Containers agreed to acquire five containerships for a total purchase price of $246.0 million, including four 2011-built 10,000 TEU containerships from an unrelated third party for $210.0 million and one 2006-built 6,800 TEU containership (the Hyundai Hongkong) from Navios Partners for $36.0 million. Navios Containers also acquired options to purchase an additional four containerships from Navios Partners for a purchase price of $36.0 million per vessel.  The acquisition of the Hyundai Hongkong and the options to acquire the additional four 6,800 TEU vessels were unanimously approved by the Special Committee of the independent members of the Board of Directors of Navios Containers.

All of the acquisitions are subject to certain conditions, and there can be no assurances that these acquisitions will occur in whole or in part. In addition, the Company may be unable to secure financing for these acquisitions on terms satisfactory to us, or at all.

New Sale and Leaseback Agreement - Refinancing Existing Credit Facilities – Extending Maturities to 2023

As previously announced, on May 25, 2018, Navios Containers entered into a $119.0 million sale and leaseback transaction with Minsheng Financial Leasing Co. Ltd. in order to refinance our outstanding credit facilities on 18 vessels maturing in the fourth quarter of 2019, with a combined balance of $92.4 million outstanding on March 31, 2018. On June 29, 2018, the Company completed the sale and leaseback of the first six vessels for approximately $37.5 million. On July 27, 2018, the Company completed the sale and leaseback of two additional vessels for approximately $13.0 million. Navios Containers expects to complete the sale and leaseback of the remaining 10 vessels during the third quarter of 2018. Upon completion of the sale and leaseback transaction, we will be obligated to make 60 monthly payments in respect of all 18 vessels of approximately $1.4 million each. Navios Containers also has an obligation to purchase the vessels at the end of the fifth year for $59.5 million. No assurances can be provided that the Company will successfully refinance these credit facilities in full or that the terms will be as described in this press release.

(1)   Available days for the fleet are total calendar days the vessels were in Navios Containers' 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 Containers' 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)   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 is a "non-U.S. GAAP financial measure" and should not be used in isolation or 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.

EBITDA represents net income before interest and finance costs, before depreciation and amortization. We use EBITDA as liquidity measure and reconcile EBITDA to net cash provided by/(used in) 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 (v) payments for drydock and special survey costs. Navios Containers believes that EBITDA is a basis upon which liquidity can be assessed and represents useful information to investors regarding Navios Containers' ability to service and/or incur indebtedness, pay capital expenditures, meet working capital requirements and pay dividends. Navios Containers also believes that EBITDA is 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 is presented to provide additional information with respect to the ability of Navios Containers to satisfy its respective obligations, including debt service, capital expenditures, working capital requirements and pay dividends. 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 those used by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.

EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and therefore, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the analysis of Navios Containers' results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are: (i) EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; (ii) EBITDA does 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 does not reflect any cash requirements for such capital expenditures. Because of these limitations, among others, EBITDA should not be considered as a principal indicator of Navios Containers' performance. Furthermore, our calculation of EBITDA may not be comparable to that reported by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.
