MONACO, Aug. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. ("Navios Holdings" or "the Company") (NYSE:NM), a global, vertically integrated seaborne shipping and logistics company, today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are delighted to report revenue and Adjusted EBITDA of $118.6 million and $31.3 million, respectively, for the second quarter of 2017. The dry bulk market continues to improve, and this improvement is being reflected in our financial performance. Compared to the second quarter of 2016, our Adjusted EBITDA from core shipping operations has increased by more than 30%. While the BDI has recovered significantly from the 2016 historical low, the BDI still must appreciate by more than 80% to reach the twenty-year average."

Angeliki Frangou continued, "I am also pleased to update you on the status of the iron ore transshipment facility built by Navios Logistics. During the second quarter, Vale unloaded approximately 33 thousand metric tons of ore to create a bed for the stockpile area and transshipped about 41 thousand metric tons of iron ore, generating approximately $0.8 million of revenue. Vale now has a stockpile of about 160 thousand metric tons of ore, and we are expecting transshipments to continue ad hoc in the third quarter. Beginning in the fourth quarter of this year, Vale’s minimum transshipment obligation under the “take or pay” agreement commences, and as a result, we can reasonably expect revenue of about $10.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2017."

HIGHLIGHTS -- RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Navios Maritime Containers Inc. (“Navios Containers”)

On June 8, 2017, Navios Containers closed its private placement of 10,057,645 shares at a subscription price of $5.00 per share, resulting in gross proceeds of $50.3 million. Navios Holdings invested $5.0 million and received 9.9% of the equity of Navios Containers. Navios Holdings also received warrants, with a five-year term, for 1.7% of the equity. Navios Containers registered its shares on the Norwegian Over-The-Counter Market (N-OTC) on June 12, 2017 under the ticker “NMCI”.

Navios South American Logistics Inc. ("Navios Logistics")

During the second quarter of 2017, Vale International S.A. (“Vale”) commenced using Navios Logistics’ newly constructed iron ore terminal, generating revenue of approximately $0.8 million in the quarter. Vale has since been building a stockpile of ore and we expect transshipments to continue ad hoc in the third quarter. Beginning in October 2017, Vale’s minimum transshipment obligation under the “take or pay” agreement commences. As a result, we expect revenue of about $10.3 million in the fourth quarter of this year from the Vale port contract.

Asset Sales

On July 13, 2017, Navios Holdings completed the sale to an unrelated third party of the Navios Horizon, a 2001 built Japanese dry bulk vessel of 50,346 dwt, for a total net sale price of $6.5 million paid in cash. On June 16, 2017, Navios Holdings completed the sale of the Navios Ionian.

Both the Navios Horizon and the Navios Ionian served as collateral to the Company’s 7.375% First Priority Ship Mortgage Notes due in 2022 and were replaced by Navios Galileo, a 2006-built Panamax vessel.

Fleet update

Navios Holdings controls a fleet of 64 operating vessels totaling 6.6 million dwt, of which 38 are owned and 26 are chartered-in under long-term charters (collectively, the "Core Fleet"). The fleet consists of 21 Capesize, 23 Panamax, 18 Ultra Handymax and two Handysize vessels with an average age of 8.1 years.

As of August 11, 2017, Navios Holdings has chartered-out 43.3% of available days for the remaining six months of 2017 (excluding index and profit sharing days). The average contracted daily charter-in rate for the long-term charter-in vessels for the remaining six months of 2017 is $12,492.

The above figures do not include the fleet of Navios Logistics and vessels servicing contracts of affreightment.

Exhibit II provides certain details of the Core Fleet of Navios Holdings. It does not include the fleet of Navios Logistics.

Adjusted Basic Loss per Share for the three months ended June 30, 2017 also excludes a gain of $0.5 million following the completion of the Series G and H Exchange Program.

Revenue from dry bulk vessel operations for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $59.2 million, as compared to $47.0 million for the same period during 2016. The increase in dry bulk revenue was mainly attributable to (i) the improved freight market and the increase in time charter equivalent rate (“TCE”) per day by 8.5% to $9,163 per day in the second quarter of 2017 as compared to $8,445 per day in the same period in 2016, and (ii) an increase in available days of our fleet by 770 days, mainly due to an increase in long-term charter-in fleet available days.

Revenue from the logistics business was $59.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, as compared to $58.7 million for the same period during 2016. The increase was mainly attributable to (i) an increase in the volume and tariffs in the dry port terminal; and (ii) an increase in the Paraguayan liquid port’s volume and price of products sold. The overall increase was partially mitigated by (i) the expiration of certain iron ore transportation contracts in the barge business; and (ii) a decrease in operating days of the cabotage fleet.

Net Loss of Navios Holdings for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $37.3 million as compared to $26.4 million for the same period of 2016.

Excluding these items, Adjusted Net Loss of Navios Holdings for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $27.4 million as compared to $26.4 million for the same period of 2016. The $1.0 million increase in Adjusted Net Loss was mainly due to (i) an increase in interest expense and finance cost, net by $0.9 million; (ii) an increase in amortization for deferred drydock and special survey costs of $0.6 million; (iii) a decrease in income tax benefit of $0.5 million; and (iv) an increase in share-based compensation expense of $0.2 million. This overall decrease was partially mitigated by (i) a decrease in depreciation and amortization by $1.0 million; and (ii) an increase in Adjusted EBITDA by $0.2 million.

Net Income of Navios Logistics was $4.4 million for the three month period ended June 30, 2017, as compared to $7.4 million for the same period in 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the three months ended June 30, 2017 increased by $0.2 million to $31.3 million, as compared to $31.1 million for the same period of 2016. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to (i) a $12.9 million increase in revenue; (ii) a $3.5 million decrease in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock and special survey costs); (iii) a $1.1 million decrease in net income attributable to the noncontrolling interest; (iv) a $1.7 million gain relating to debt extinguishment; (v) a $1.0 million decrease in other expense, net; and (vi) a $0.5 million decrease in general and administrative expenses (excluding share-based compensation expenses). This overall increase was partially offset by (i) a $18.0 million increase in time charter, voyage and logistics business expenses; and (ii) a $2.5 million decrease in equity in net earnings from affiliated companies (excluding non-cash impairment losses relating to our affiliates).

EBITDA of Navios Logistics was $19.3 million for the three month period ended June 30, 2017, as compared to $20.7 million for the same period in 2016.

Revenue from dry bulk vessel operations for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $110.8 million as compared to $93.3 million for the same period during 2016.

Revenue from the logistics business was $103.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to $114.0 million for the same period of 2016. The decrease was mainly attributable to (i) the expiration of certain iron ore transportation contracts in the barge business; and (ii) a decrease in operating days of the cabotage fleet.

This overall decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was partially mitigated by (i) a $6.8 million increase in revenue; (ii) a $4.2 million decrease in net income attributable to the noncontrolling interest; (iii) a $3.7 million decrease in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock and special survey costs); (iv) a $2.9 million decrease in other expense, net (excluding compensation from early redelivery of a vessel from its charterer received in the first quarter of 2016); (v) a $1.7 million gain relating to debt extinguishment; and (vi) a $0.7 million decrease in general and administrative expenses (excluding share-based compensation expenses).

(1) Available days for the fleet are total calendar days the vessels were in Navios Holdings' 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 Holdings' 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) Equivalent Vessels is defined as the total available days during a relevant period divided by the number of days of this period.
(5) Time charter equivalent rate (“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, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Basic Loss per Share 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 (loss)/income attributable to Navios Holdings' common stockholders before interest and finance costs, before depreciation and amortization, before income taxes and before stock-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA, excluding certain items as described under “Earnings Highlights”. Adjusted Loss and Adjusted Basic Loss per Share represent Net Loss and Basic Loss per Share, excluding certain items as described under “Earnings Highlights”. We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as liquidity measures and reconcile EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by 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 gains/(losses) on bond and debt extinguishment, (v) provision for losses on accounts receivable, (vi) equity in affiliates, net of dividends received, (vii) payments for drydock and special survey costs, (viii) noncontrolling interest, (ix) gain/ (loss) on sale of assets/ subsidiaries, (x) unrealized (loss)/gain on derivatives, and (xi) loss on sale and reclassification to earnings of available-for-sale securities and impairment charges. Navios Holdings believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are a basis upon which liquidity can be assessed and represents useful information to investors regarding Navios Holdings’ ability to service and/or incur indebtedness, pay capital expenditures, meet working capital requirements and pay dividends. Navios Holdings also believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are 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 and Adjusted EBITDA are presented to provide additional information with respect to the ability of Navios Holdings to satisfy its respective obligations, including debt service, capital expenditures, working capital requirements and pay dividends. While EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used as measures of operating results and the ability to meet debt service requirements, the definitions of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA used here may not be comparable to those used by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as an analytical tool, and therefore, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the analysis of Navios Holdings’ 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; (ii) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do 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 and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such capital expenditures. Because of these limitations, among others, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a principal indicator of Navios Holdings’ 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.

Navios Logistics EBITDA is used to measure its operating performance.

The following tables provide a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings (including Navios Logistics) and EBITDA of Navios Logistics on a stand-alone basis:
