MONACO, Aug. 23, 2018 (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, 2018.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "I am pleased with the results of Q2 and H1 of 2018, for which we reported Adjusted EBITDA of $43.2 million and $71.3 million, respectively.  Our Adjusted EBITDA was 38% and 46% higher than the second quarter of 2017 and the first half of 2017 respectively."

Angeliki Frangou continued, "Navios controls 70 dry bulk vessels with an average age of 7.8 years. Over the past 18 months, we renewed and expanded our fleet, decreasing fleet age by 15% and increasing fleet size by 9%. Much of this we accomplished using minimal capital by increasing our charter-in fleet, often with purchase options. We are now experiencing the positive effects of healthier charter markets on our business results."

HIGHLIGHTS – RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Fleet Update

  • Renewal and Expansion

In August 2018, Navios Holdings exercised the option to acquire Navios Primavera, a 2007-built, 53,464 dwt chartered-in vessel for an estimated purchase price of approximately $10.5 million to be determined on the actual delivery date of the vessel, which is expected within the fourth quarter of 2018.

In August 2018, Navios Holdings agreed to charter-in one Kamsarmax vessel under a ten-year bareboat charter with a purchase option. This vessel is expected to be delivered in the second quarter of 2020. The transaction is subject to completion of definitive documentation.

  • Sale of vessels

In July 2018, Navios Holdings agreed to sell the Navios Mars, a 2016-built Capesize vessel of 181,259 dwt, and the Navios Sphera, a 2016-built Panamax vessel of 84,872 dwt, to its affiliate Navios Maritime Partners L.P. (“Navios Partners”) for a sale price of $79.0 million.

Part of the sale proceeds will be used for the full prepayment of the $31.8 million outstanding bank debt of the two vessels, while the remaining $47.2 million will be cash on our balance sheet. The vessels are expected to be delivered to Navios Partners within the third quarter of 2018.

In July 2018, Navios Holdings completed the sale to an unrelated party of the Navios Achilles, a 2001-built Ultra-Handymax vessel of 52,063 dwt for a total net sale price of $8.1 million, paid in cash.

Revenue from dry bulk vessel operations for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $72.0 million, as compared to $59.2 million for the same period during 2017.

Revenue from the logistics business was $60.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $59.4 million for the same period in 2017.

The overall increase was partially mitigated by (i) a $4.0 million decrease in revenue from the barge business mainly related to liquid cargo transportation and (ii) a $4.0 million decrease in revenue from the cabotage business mainly due to a decrease in operating days.

Net Loss of Navios Holdings was $25.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $37.3 million for the same period in 2017.

(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 and ballast days relating to 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 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)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)/recovery 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:
