MONACO, Aug. 01, 2018 (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 months ended June 30, 2018.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Navios Partners stated, "I am pleased with the results for the second quarter, for which Navios Partners had $34.7 million of adjusted EBITDA and reported $9.2 million of adjusted net income. We declared a quarterly distribution of $0.02 per unit for the second quarter, representing a current yield of approximately 4%."

Angeliki Frangou continued, "Over the past two years, we used excess cash flow from operations and financing activities to renew and expand our fleet to 35 drybulk vessels.  We also leveraged historic weakness in the container sector by establishing Navios Maritime Containers Inc., a growth vehicle with 26 containerships. Having taken advantage of these opportunities, we restored distributions to unitholders in the first quarter of this year and are seeking to deleverage with excess cash flow and the contemplated sale of our remaining containerships. If and when these sales are completed, Navios Partners will host the drybulk business and Navios Containers will hold the container business, thereby simplifying our business structure."

Drybulk Fleet

  • Agreement to acquire two vessels

In July 2018, Navios Partners agreed to acquire the Navios Sphera, a 2016-built Panamax vessel of 84,872 dwt and the Navios Mars, a 2016-built Capesize vessel of 181,259 dwt from its affiliate, Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. for a purchase price of $79.0 million. These vessels are time chartered out on index-linked charters until January 2021 and February 2019, respectively.

The acquisition of the vessels is expected to be partially financed with a $44.0 million new term loan facility and the balance with available cash. The loan facility has an amortization profile of five years, matures in July 2023 and bears interest at LIBOR plus 290 bps per annum.

The transaction was approved by the Conflicts Committee of the Board of Directors of Navios Partners.

  • Deliveries

On June 7, 2018, Navios Partners took delivery of the Navios Altair I, a 2006-built Panamax vessel of 74,475 dwt, acquired from an unrelated third party for a purchase price of $11.0 million.

On May 21, 2018, Navios Partners took delivery of the Navios Symmetry, a 2006-built Panamax vessel of 74,381 dwt, acquired from an unrelated third party, for a purchase price of $11.0 million.

Sale of YM Unity and YM Utmost

On July 2, 2018, Navios Partners sold to its affiliate, Navios Maritime Containers Inc. ("Navios Containers") the YM Unity and the YM Utmost, two 2006-built containerships of 8,204 TEU each, for a sale price of $67.0 million. The loss on sale of the vessels amounted to $37.9 million and was recognized in the second quarter of 2018. Navios Partners used a portion of the sale proceeds to repay $20.2 million of its outstanding debt. As a result of the sales, the YM Unity and the YM Utmost were released from security of the Term Loan B Facility. In exchange, four drybulk vessels and $4.0 million in cash substituted the two vessels as collateral to the Term Loan B Facility.

Sale of Containerships

On June 11, 2018, Navios Partners agreed to sell the Hyundai Hongkong, a 2006-built, 6,800 TEU containership to its affiliate, Navios Containers, for a sale price of approximately $36.0 million. The vessel is expected to be delivered to Navios Containers in the third quarter of 2018.

Navios Partners also granted options to Navios Containers to acquire four additional 2006-built, 6,800 TEU containerships (the Hyundai Singapore, the Hyundai Busan, the Hyundai Shanghai and the Hyundai Tokyo) for a purchase price of $36.0 million per vessel. Each of the four vessels are sister ships to the Hyundai Hongkong and have the same time charter employment in place.

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.

The transaction was approved by the Conflicts Committee of the Board of Directors of Navios Partners.

Cash Distribution

The Board of Directors of Navios Partners declared a cash distribution for the second quarter of 2018 of $0.02 per unit. The cash distribution is payable on August 10, 2018 to all unitholders of record as of August 7, 2018. 

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 88.8% of its available days for 2018, 35.6% for 2019 and 23.5% for 2020, including index-linked charters, expecting to generate revenues (excluding index-linked charters) of approximately $155.8 million, $58.4 million and $65.9 million, respectively. The average expected daily charter-out rate for the fleet is $16,109, $22,697 and $29,992 for 2018, 2019 and 2020, respectively.

Three month periods ended June 30, 2018 and 2017

The details below exclude the impact of the consolidation of Navios Containers for the periods presented as it is intended to provide investors with a clearer picture of Navios Partners on a going forward basis. Navios Containers' effect on time charter and voyage revenues and EBITDA for the period from April 28, 2017 (date of inception) to June 30, 2017 was $3.1 million and 2.3 million, respectively.

Time charter and voyage revenues for Navios Partners for the three month period ended June 30, 2018 increased by $11.3 million, or 24.0%, to $58.2 million, as compared to $46.9 million for the same period in 2017. The increase in time charter and voyage revenues was mainly attributable to: (i) the increase in revenue following the acquisition of the seven vessels in 2017 and the three vessels in 2018; and (ii) the increase in available days of the fleet to 3,366 days for the three month period ended June 30, 2018, as compared to 2,844 days for the three month period ended June 30, 2017, mainly due to the increased fleet. That increase was partially mitigated by the decrease in revenue due to the sales of the Navios Apollon and the Navios Gemini S in 2017.

EBITDA of Navios Partners for the three month period ended June 30, 2018 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a: (i) $37.9 million impairment loss on the sale of the YM Unity and the YM Utmost; and (ii) $0.6 million equity compensation expense. EBITDA of Navios Partners for the three month period ended June 30, 2017 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a $0.5 million equity compensation expense. Excluding these items, Adjusted EBITDA increased by $4.4 million to $34.7 million for the three month period ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $30.3 million for the same period in 2017. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to: (i) an $11.3 million increase in revenue; (ii) a $0.3 million decrease in other expenses; and (iii) a $1.6 million increase in equity in net earnings of affiliated companies. The above increase was partially mitigated by a: (i) $2.8 million increase in time charter and voyage expenses; (ii) $2.6 million increase in management fees due to the increased fleet; (iii) $0.6 million increase in general and administrative expenses; and (iv) $2.8 million decrease in other income.

The reserves for estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures for the three month periods ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 were $6.4 million and $3.5 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, 2018 of $19.8 million, as compared to $22.4 million for the three month period ended June 30, 2017. 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 Income of Navios Partners for the three month period ended June 30, 2018 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a: (i) $37.9 million impairment loss on the sale of the YM Unity and the YM Utmost; (ii) $0.6 million equity compensation expense; and (iii) $0.2 million write-off of deferred finance fees. Net Income of Navios Partners for the three month period ended June 30, 2017 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a $0.5 million equity compensation expense. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net Income for the three month period ended June 30, 2018 amounted to $9.2 million compared to $4.1 million for the three month period ended June 30, 2017. The increase in Adjusted Net Income of $5.1 million was due to a: (i) $4.4 million increase in adjusted EBITDA; (ii) $0.1 million decrease in direct vessel expenses; (iii) $3.0 million decrease in depreciation and amortization expense; and (iv) $0.1 million increase in interest income. The above increase was partially mitigated by a $2.4 million increase in interest expense and finance cost, net.

Six month periods ended June 30, 2018 and 2017

The details below exclude the impact of the consolidation of Navios Containers for the periods presented as it is intended to provide investors with a clearer picture of Navios Partners on a going forward basis. Navios Containers' effect on time charter and voyage revenues and EBITDA for the period from April 28, 2017 (date of inception) to June 30, 2017 was $3.1 million and 2.3 million, respectively.

Time charter and voyage revenues for Navios Partners for the six month period ended June 30, 2018 increased by $21.9 million, or 24.5%, to $111.2 million, as compared to $89.3 million for the same period in 2017. The increase in time charter and voyage revenues was mainly attributable to: (i) the increase in revenue following the acquisition of the seven vessels in 2017 and the three vessels in 2018; and (ii) the increase in TCE to $16,295 per day for the six month period ended June 30, 2018, from $15,593 per day for the six month period ended June 30, 2017 due to the increase in the freight market. That increase was partially mitigated by the decrease in revenue due to the sales of the MSC Cristina, the Navios Apollon and the Navios Gemini S in 2017. The available days of the fleet increased to 6,552 days for the six month period ended June 30, 2018, as compared to 5,639 days for the six month period ended June 30, 2017, mainly due to the increased fleet.

EBITDA of Navios Partners for the six month period ended June 30, 2018 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a: (i) $37.9 million impairment loss on the sale of the YM Unity and the YM Utmost; and (ii) $1.2 million equity compensation expense. EBITDA of Navios Partners for the six month period ended June 30, 2017 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a: (i) $1.5 million allowance for doubtful accounts; (ii) $1.3 million loss related to the sale of the MSC Cristina and; (iii) $0.9 million equity compensation expense. Excluding these items, Adjusted EBITDA increased by $10.0 million to $66.2 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $56.2 million for the same period in 2017. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to a: (i) $21.9 million increase in revenue; and (ii) $2.7 million increase in equity in net earnings of affiliated companies. The above increase was partially mitigated by a: (i) $3.1 million increase in time charter and voyage expenses; (ii) $5.0 million increase in management fees due to the increased fleet; (iii) $0.8 million increase in general and administrative expenses; (iv) $5.3 million decrease in other income; and (v) $0.4 million increase in other expenses.

The reserves for estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures for the six month periods ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 were $12.4 million and $6.7 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, 2018 of $37.2 million, compared to $39.9 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2017. 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 Income of Navios Partners for the six month period ended June 30, 2018 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a: (i) $37.9 million impairment loss on the sale of the YM Unity and the YM Utmost; (ii) $1.2 million equity compensation expense; and (iii) $0.2 million write-off of deferred finance fees. Net Income of Navios Partners for the six month period ended June 30, 2017 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a: (i) $3.2 million write-off of deferred finance fees and discount related to the refinancing of the Term Loan B Facility; (ii) $1.5 million allowance for doubtful accounts; (iii) $1.3 million loss related to the sale of the MSC Cristina; and (iv) $0.9 million equity compensation expense. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net Income for the six month period ended June 30, 2018 amounted to $15.2 million compared to $4.8 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2017. The increase in Adjusted Net Income of $10.5 million was due to a: (i) $10.0 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA; (ii) $0.2 million decrease in direct vessel expenses; (iii) $4.9 million decrease in depreciation and amortization expense; and (iv) $0.5 million increase in interest income. The above increase was partially mitigated by a $5.1 million increase 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 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 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)/ income 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 equity compensation expense, loss on sale of vessel, impairment losses and allowance for doubtful accounts, reactivation costs and gain on change in control. Navios Partners uses Adjusted EBITDA as a liquidity measure and reconcile EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by/(used in) operating activities, the most comparable U.S. GAAP liquidity measure. EBITDA in this document is calculated as follows: net cash provided by/(used in) operating activities adding back, when applicable and as the case may be, the effect of: (i) net (increase)/decrease in operating assets; (ii) net (decrease)/increase in operating liabilities; (iii) net interest cost; (iv) amortization and write-off of deferred finance charges and other related expenses; (v) allowance for doubtful accounts; (vi) equity in net earnings of affiliated companies; (vii) payments for drydock and special survey costs; (viii) gain/(loss) on sale of assets/subsidiaries; (ix) impairment charges; (x) non-cash accrued interest income and amortization of deferred revenue; (xi) gain/(loss) on debt repayments; (xii) equity compensation expense; (xiii) gain on change in control; (xiv) noncontrolling interest; and (xv) non-cash accrued interest income from receivable from affiliates. 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.

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 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.

2. Operating Surplus

Operating Surplus represents net income adjusted for depreciation and amortization expense, non-cash interest expense, 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.
