MONACO, Feb. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation (“Navios Acquisition”) (NYSE: NNA), an owner and operator of tanker vessels, reported its financial results today for the fourth quarter and the year ended December 31, 2019.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Navios Acquisition stated, “I am pleased with our results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2019.  For the fourth quarter, Navios Acquisition recorded revenue of $85.4 million and EBITDA of $45.9 million, representing increases of about 46% and 149%, respectively, over the fourth quarter of 2018. For the full year of 2019, Navios Acquisition recorded revenue of $280.1 million and EBITDA of $128.4 million, representing increases of about 49% and 170%, respectively, over 2018. We declared a quarterly distribution of $0.30 cents per share for the fourth quarter. ”​

Angeliki Frangou continued, “We believe that Navios Acquisition is well positioned for 2020. We have visibility on revenue through our chartering activities, with 69% of available days fixed in 2020 and about $400 million in long-term contracted revenue overall. We also have visibility on cost through the management agreement. However, we cannot determine the impact of the coronavirus in China on our market, as the fluid situation makes it impossible to assess accurately potential ramifications. “  

HIGHLIGHTS — RECENT DEVELOPMENTS 

Quarterly dividend: $0.30 per share 

On January 22, 2020, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend in respect of the fourth quarter of 2019 of $0.30 per share of common stock which will be paid on April 7, 2020 to stockholders of record as of March 5, 2020. The declaration and payment of any further dividends remain subject to the discretion of the Board of Directors and will depend on, among other things, Navios Acquisition’s cash requirements as measured by market opportunities and restrictions under its credit agreements and other debt obligations and such other factors as the Board of Directors may deem advisable.  

Liquidation of Navios Europe Inc. (“Navios Europe I”)

During the quarter ended December 31, 2019, Navios Acquisition acquired five product tankers, two Long Range one (“LR1”) product tankers and three Medium Range one (“MR1”) product tankers for an acquisition cost of approximately $84.4 million in total, following the liquidation of Navios Europe I.

Debt developments

In December 2019, Navios Acquisition entered into a loan agreement with Deutsche Bank AG Filiale Deutschlandgeschäft of up to $32.5 million in order to finance two MR1s and one LR1 acquired from Navios Europe I. The facility is repayable in one single repayment on the last repayment date. The facility matures in June 2020 and bears interest at LIBOR plus 400 bps per annum. 

Following the acquisition of the Star N and the Hector N MR1 product tankers from Navios Europe I, the vessels were offered as collateral under its ship mortgage notes , in substitution of an amount of $25.4 million that was held as cash collateral from the sale proceeds of the Nave Electron. 

Continuous Offering Program

On November 29, 2019, Navios Acquisition entered into a Continuous Offering Program Sales Agreement, pursuant to which Navios Acquisition issued and sold from time to time through the sales agent common shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $25.0 million. As of December 31, 2019, Navios Acquisition issued 270,020 common shares and received net proceeds of $2.1 million.

Fleet employment

As of Februray 6, 2020, Navios Acquisition’s fleet consisted of a total of 46 vessels, of which 13 are VLCCs (including three bareboat chartered-in VLCCs expected to be delivered in the third and fourth quarters of 2020 and the third quarter of 2021), 31 are product tankers, two are chemical tankers. 

Following the liquidation of Navios Europe I, Navios Acquisition acquired three MR1 product tankers and two LR1 product tankers. As per management agreement, management fees are fixed for two years commencing from January 1, 2020 at: (a) $6,825 per day per MR1 product tanker; and (b) $7,225 per day per LR1 product tanker vessel. The agreement also provides for a technical and commercial management fee of $50 per day per vessel and an annual increase of 3% after January 1, 2022 for the remaining period unless agreed otherwise. Drydocking expenses are reimbursed at cost for all vessels.

Currently, Navios Acquisition has contracted 68.8% of its available days on a charter-out basis for 2020, which are expected to generate revenues of approximately $179.2 million. The average base contractual net daily charter-out rate for the 58.6% of available days that are contracted on base rate and/or base rate with profit sharing arrangements is expected to be $19,334.

Navios Acquisition believes that the important measures for analyzing trends in its results of operations consist of the following:

(1 ) Available days: Available days for the fleet are total calendar days the vessels were in Navios Acquisition’s 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: 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: Fleet utilization is the percentage of time that Navios Acquisition’s 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 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 of various types of charter contracts for the number of available days of the fleet.

Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net (loss)/ income and Adjusted (loss)/ income per share (basic) are non-U.S. GAAP financial measures and should not be used in isolation or as substitution for Navios Acquisition’s results calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”).

EBITDA represents net (loss)/income before interest and finance costs, before depreciation and amortization and before income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA in this document represents EBITDA excluding certain items as described under “Financial Highlights”. Adjusted net (loss)/ income and Adjusted (loss)/ income per share (basic) represent Net (loss)/ income and (loss)/ income per share (basic), excluding certain items as described under “Financial Highlights”. We use Adjusted EBITDA as 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 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 of deferred finance costs and other related expenses; (v) equity/ (loss) in net earnings of affiliates, net of dividends received; (vi) payments for dry dock and special survey costs; (vii) impairment charges; (viii) gain on sale of assets; (ix) gain/ (loss) on debt repayment; (x) stock- based compensation and (xi) transaction costs. Navios Acquisition believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are each the basis upon which liquidity can be assessed and present useful information to investors regarding Navios Acquisition’s ability to service and/or incur indebtedness, pay capital expenditures, meet working capital requirements and pay dividends. Navios Acquisition 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. 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 Acquisition’s 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 Acquisition’s 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.
