MONACO, July 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Navios Maritime Partners L.P. (“Navios Partners” or the “Company”) (NYSE:NMM), an international owner and operator of container and dry bulk vessels, today reported its financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “For the second quarter of 2017, Navios Partners reported Consolidated Revenue of $50.0 million and Consolidated Net Income of $4.1 million. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA was $32.2 million.”

Angeliki Frangou continued, “Navios Partners is a unique platform in the dry industry, with about $700 million in contracted revenue, 84% of which is through charters longer than three years, and no significant near term debt maturities. As a result, Navios Partners is renewing and expanding its drybulk fleet with younger and larger vessels. To date, seven vessels were agreed to be acquired with an average age of 7.4 years and one 17-year old vessel was sold. Thus, the average age of Navios Partners’ drybulk fleet improved by 9% -- from 10.4 years to 9.5 years, and the overall size increased by 33% (almost 1 million deadweight tons). In addition, we participated in the launch of Navios Maritime Containers Inc., a new vehicle dedicated to capitalizing on the opportunity within the distressed container sector by investing $30 million for about a 60% ownership interest plus warrants for an additional 6.8%.”

Three month periods ended June 30, 2017 and 2016

Time charter and voyage revenues from Navios Partners for the three month period ended June 30, 2017 increased by $2.0 million or 4.5% to $46.9 million, as compared to $44.9 million for the same period in 2016. The increase was mainly attributable to the increase in TCE to $16,498 per day for the three month period ended June 30, 2017, from $16,005 per day for the three month period ended June 30, 2016, due to the increase in the freight market in the second quarter of 2017, as compared to the same period in 2016. The available days of the fleet increased to 2,844 days for the three month period ended June 30, 2017, as compared to 2,821 days for the three month period ended June 30, 2016.

Time charter and voyage revenues from Navios Containers for the period from April 28, 2017 (date of inception) to June 30, 2017 amounted to $3.1 million. Available days of the fleet were 115 days for the period from April 28, 2017 (date of inception) to June 30, 2017 and TCE for the period amounted to $26,968.

EBITDA of Navios Partners for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a $0.5 million equity compensation expense. Excluding this item, Adjusted EBITDA increased by $1.3 million to $30.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, as compared to $29.0 million for the same period in 2016. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to a: (i) $2.0 million increase in revenue; and (ii) $2.0 million decrease in time charter and voyage expenses. The above increase was partially mitigated by a: (i) $1.7 million increase in general and administrative expenses; (ii) $0.8 million increase in other expenses; and (iii) $0.2 million decrease in other income.

EBITDA of Navios Containers was $2.3 million for the period from April 28, 2017 (date of inception) to 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 months ended June 30, 2017 was negatively affected by the accounting effect of a $0.5 million equity compensation expense. Excluding this item, Adjusted Net Income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 amounted to $4.1 million compared to $0.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The increase in Adjusted Net Income of $3.7 million was due to a: (i) $1.3 million increase in adjusted EBITDA; (ii) $1.4 million decrease in depreciation and amortization expense; (iii) $0.8 million increase in interest income; and (iv) $0.2 million decrease in interest expense and finance cost, net. The above increase was partially mitigated by a $0.1 million increase in direct vessel expenses, comprising of the amortization of dry dock and special survey costs.

Six month periods ended June 30, 2017 and 2016

Time charter and voyage revenues from Navios Partners for the six month period ended June 30, 2017 decreased by $1.2 million or 1.3% to $89.3 million, as compared to $90.5 million for the same period in 2016. The decrease was mainly attributable to the decrease in TCE to $15,593 per day for the six month period ended June 30, 2017, from $15,764 per day for the six month period ended June 30, 2016, mainly due to the sale of the MSC Cristina in January 2017.

Excluding these items, Adjusted EBITDA decreased by $0.9 million to $56.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, as compared to $57.1 million for the same period in 2016. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to a: (i) $1.9 million increase in general and administrative expenses; (ii) $1.2 million decrease in revenue; (iii) $0.4 million increase in other expenses; and (iv) $0.2 million decrease in other income. The above decrease was partially mitigated by a: (i) $2.4 million decrease in time charter and voyage expenses; and (ii) 0.3 million decrease in management fees.

The reserve for estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures for the six month periods ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 were $6.7 million and $5.9 million, respectively (please see Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures in Exhibit 3).

The increase in Adjusted Net Income of $4.2 million was due to a: (i) $3.5 million decrease in depreciation and amortization expense; (ii) $1.2 million increase in interest income; and (iii) $0.7 million decrease in interest expense and finance cost, net. The above increase was partially mitigated by a: (i) $0.9 million decrease in Adjusted EBITDA; and (ii) a $0.3 million increase in direct vessel expenses, comprising of the amortization of dry dock and special survey costs.

(1)

Available days for the fleet represent total calendar days the vessels were in Navios Partners’ and Navios Containers’ possession for the relevant period after subtracting off-hire days associated with scheduled repairs, dry dockings or special surveys. 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 is 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’ and Navios Containers’ 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, drydockings 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 income/ (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 equity compensation expense, loss on sale of vessel, impairment loss and allowance for doubtful accounts. 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 (increase)/decrease 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 earnings of affiliates, (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 and (xii) equity compensation expense. 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.
