MONACO, July 30, 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 second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2020.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Navios Acquisition stated, “I am pleased with our results for the second quarter of 2020.  During the quarter, Navios Acquisition recorded revenue of $112.2 million, adjusted EBITDA of $72.7 million and adjusted net income of $32.4 million, or $2.03 per share. Our chartering strategy focuses on capturing upside and we earned $20.7 million in profit sharing in the second quarter of 2020.  We also declared a quarterly distribution of $0.30 cents per share for the second quarter.”

Angeliki Frangou continued, “During the quarter, we expanded our VLCC fleet by bareboat chartering-in one vessel.  We now have bareboat chartered-in four newbuild vessels with in no initial capital outlay.  We also successfully liquidated our investment vehicle, Navios Europe II and converted $37.7 million into steel value and cash.  

For the second half of 2020, we have 74.0% of our available days fixed (22.1% with profit sharing) at an average charter rate of $19,622 per day estimated to generate $116.2 million of revenue. This contracted rate excludes potential profit sharing.  Navios Acquisition has 48.1% of available days with market exposure and a breakeven rate of $14,775 per open /floating day. “ 

HIGHLIGHTS — RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Quarterly dividend: $0.30 per share

On July 28, 2020, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend in respect of the second quarter of 2020 of $0.30 per share of common stock, which will be paid on October 8, 2020 to stockholders of record as of September 4, 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.  

Debt developements

In June 2020, Navios Acquisition entered into a loan agreement with a commercial bank of $20.8 million in order to refinance the outstanding balance on the existing facility of two product tankers. The facility is repayable in 16 quarterly installments of $0.8 million each with a final balloon payment of $8.0 million repayable on the last repayment date. The facility matures in June 2024 and bears interest at LIBOR plus 300 bps per annum.

In June 2020, Navios Acquisition entered into sale and leaseback agreements with unrelated third parties for $72.1 million in order to refinance the outstanding balance on the existing facilities of four product tankers. The agreements will be repaid through periods ranging from four to seven years in consecutive quarterly installments of up to $1.8 million each, with a repurchase obligation of up to $27.0 million in total. The sale and leaseback arrangement bears interest at LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 390 bps to 410 bps per annum, depending on the vessel financed.

During the second quarter of 2020, Navios Acquisition prepaid a total of $76.3 million of its existing bank financings.

In the third quarter 2020, Navios Acquisition repurchased $5.0 million of its ship mortgage notes for a cost of $2.9 million.

Liquidation of Navios Europe II Inc.

On June 29, 2020, following the liquidation of Navios Europe II, Navios Acquisition was allocated $8.9 million in cash and seven containerships with their associated working capital. The vessels are accounted for as held for sale. Navios Acquisition drew $41.7 million under a new short term credit facility secured with the seven containerships and repaid $45.1 million of the vessel’s indebtedness.

Continuous Offering Program

On November 29, 2019, Navios Acquisition entered into a Continuous Offering Program Sales Agreement, pursuant to which Navios Acquisition may issue and sell from time to time through the sales agent shares of common stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $25.0 million. As of July 28, 2020, since the commencement of the program, Navios Acquisition has issued 516,250 shares of common stock and received net proceeds of $3.2 million.

Exercised our option for VLCC newbuilding under bareboat charter

In the second quarter of 2020, Navios Acquisition exercised its option for a fourth Japanese newbuild VLCC under a twelve year bareboat charter agreement with de-escalating purchase options and expected delivery in the second quarter of 2022.

The bareboat agreement reflects an implied price of approximately $84.5 million and an annual effective interest of approximately 6% fixed for the duration of the agreement.

Fleet employment

As of July 28, 2020, Navios Acquisition’s core fleet consisted of a total of 47 vessels, of which 14 are very large crude carriers (“VLCCs”) (including four bareboat chartered-in VLCCs expected to be delivered in each of the fourth quarter of 2020, and the first and the third quarters of 2021 and the second quarter of 2022), 31 are product tankers and two are chemical tankers. Navios Acquisition also owns seven containerships that are accounted for as held for sale.

Currently, Navios Acquisition has contracted 85.5% of its available days of its core fleet on a charter-out basis for the remaining six month period of 2020. The average base contractual net daily charter-out rate for the 74.0% of available days that are contracted on base rate and/or base rate with profit sharing arrangements is expected to be $19,622 for the second half of 2020.

The increase was mainly attributable to an: (i) increase in revenue by $8.1 million due to the acquisition of five product tankers of Navios Europe I in December 2019; and (ii) increase in market rates during the three month period ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period of 2019; partially mitigated by the sale of three VLCCs in 2019. Available days of the fleet increased to 3,859 days for the three month period ended June 30, 2020, as compared to 3,503 days for the three month period ended June 30, 2019, due to the reasons mentioned above.

Adjusted net income for the three month period ended June 30, 2020 was $32.4 million as compared to $18.6 million adjusted net loss for the same period of 2019.

Navios Acquisition believes that the important measures for analyzing trends in its results of income 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.
(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.
(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 income/ (loss) and Adjusted income/ (loss) per share (basic and diluted) 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 income/ (loss) 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 income/ (loss) and Adjusted income/ (loss) per share (basic and diluted) represent Net income/ (loss) and income/ (loss) per share (basic and diluted), 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.
