  earnings generated by vessels of various types of charter contracts for the number of available days of the fleet.

For the year ended December 31, 2016, Navios Acquisition had 13,753 available days, after it took delivery of four MR2 product tankers in 2015. The effect was partially mitigated by: (i) the sale of the outstanding shares of capital stock of two of its vessel-owning subsidiaries (Nave Celeste and C. Dream) to Navios Midstream (see Note 1) on June 18, 2015; and (ii) the sale of one MR2 product tanker and two chemical tankers in 2016.

There were 13,743 available days in the comparative period in 2015.

Revenue: Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2016 decreased by $23.2 million, or 7.4%, to $290.2 million, as compared to $313.4 million for 2015. The decrease was mainly attributable to: (i) the decrease in revenue by $18.6 million due to the sale of two VLCCs in June 2015, one MR2 product tanker in January 2016 and two chemical tankers in October and November 2016; and (ii) the decrease in profit sharing by $24.5 million. The decrease was partially mitigated by the increase in revenue following deliveries of four vessels during 2015. Available days of the fleet increased to 13,753 days for the year ended December 31, 2016, as compared to 13,743 days for the year ended December 31, 2015. The TCE Rate decreased to $20,742 for the year ended December 31, 2016, from $22,477 for the year ended December 31, 2015.

Time charter and voyage expenses: Time charter and voyage expenses for the year ended December 31, 2016 increased by approximately $0.5 million to $5.0 million, as compared to $4.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. The increase was attributable to a $1.1 million increase in bunkers and other voyage expenses and was partially mitigated by a $0.5 million decrease in broker commission costs.

Direct vessel expenses: Direct vessel expenses for the year ended December 31, 2016 increased by approximately $2.0 million to $3.6 million as compared to $1.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. The increase was attributable to a: (i) $1.3 million increase in amortization of dry dock and special survey cost; and (ii) $0.7 million increase in expenses incurred in connection with specialized work performed on certain vessels of our fleet.

Management fees: Management fees for the year ended December 31, 2016 increased by approximately $2.5 million to $97.9 million, as compared to $95.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. The increase was mainly attributable to the increased number of vessels and the increase in the management fees with effect as of May 29, 2016, described below. Pursuant to the Management Agreement, the Manager provided commercial and technical management services to Navios Acquisition’s vessels for a daily fee of: (a) $6,000 per MR2 product tanker and chemical tanker vessel; (b) $7,000 per LR1 product tanker vessel; and (c) $9,500 per VLCC, through May 2016. Navios Acquisition fixed the fees for commercial and technical ship management services of its fleet for two additional years from May 29, 2016, through May 2018, at a daily fee of: (a) $6,350 per MR2 product tanker and chemical tanker vessel; (b) $7,150 per LR1 product tanker vessel; and (c) $9,500 per VLCC.

Dry docking expenses are reimbursed by Navios Acquisition, at cost.

General and administrative expenses: Total general and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2016 increased by approximately $1.5 million to $17.1 million compared to $15.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2015.

The increase was mainly attributable to a $1.8 million increase in administrative expenses paid to Navios Holdings mainly due to the increased number of vessels in Navios Acquisition’s fleet, partially mitigated by a: (i) $0.2 million decrease in compensation to the directors and/or officers of the Company; and (ii) $0.2 million decrease in other general and administrative expenses, including professional, other fees and travel expenses.
