MONACO, Nov. 22, 2016 (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 third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We emphasize cost management, and Navios Holding's operating cost (G&A plus Opex) is one of the lowest in the industry when compared to our publicly listed shipping peers. We have engaged in a number of initiatives that reduce our 2017 daily cash breakeven by an expected $1,274 or 10.4%.  These initiatives include repurchasing about $60 million in face value of our unsecured bonds, reducing the average cost of our charter-in fleet and reducing amortization payments on our commercial bank debt.  We have also repurchased $61 million or 36% of the preferred shares outstanding."

Angeliki Frangou continued: "On the revenue side, we outperformed the spot market through Q3 by approximately 50%. This added over $40.0 million in charter revenue compared to what we would have recorded if we had chartered out vessels at the average spot market rate."  

HIGHLIGHTS - RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Unsecured Bond Repurchases

Since July 2016, the Company has bought back a total of $58.9 million in par value of its 8 1/8% Senior Notes due 2019 by using $30.5 million of cash.

Other Debt Developments

In September 2016, Navios Holdings entered into a $70.0 million secured credit facility with Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation. This facility has a fixed interest rate of 8.75% compounded semi-annually to be paid upon maturity on November 15, 2018. As of September 30, 2016, the amount drawn was $50.0 million.

In October 2016, the Company prepaid $15.3 million in one of its secured credit facilities, using $13.8 million cash, thus achieving a $1.5 million benefit to nominal value.

The Company entered into a new facility to refinance one Capesize vessel. The amount drawn under the new facility was $16.1 million. The first instalment will be due 15 months from the loan drawdown. The credit facility bears interest at LIBOR plus 300 bps per annum. The loan has a tenor of six years and an amortization profile of 18 years.

Series G and Series H ADS Exchange Program

On November 8, 2016, the Company announced the completion of its offer to exchange its Series G and Series H Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares. A total of 24,431 Series G and Series H were validly tendered representing an aggregate nominal value of $61.1 million. We reduced our annual dividend obligation by $5.3 million and we also eliminated $4.0 million of accrued dividends. The consideration for the exchange comprised of $8.7 million in cash and the issuance of a total of 7.6 million shares of common stock representing a 28% to par cost.

Low Cost Structure - $1,274 Expected Reduction in 2017 Daily Cash Breakeven

Navios Holdings is expected to achieve a reduction of $1,274 in 2017 daily cash breakeven based on the following initiatives:
  • Reduction in bank debt cash requirements by $11.4 million for the next 15 months
  • Reduction of annual interest expense by $4.8 million though its $58.9 million unsecured bond repurchases
  • Reduction in cash breakeven of its chartered-in fleet following the chartering of seven new vessels at an average daily charter-in cost of $6,827 for 2017

The total estimated available days of the Core Fleet, as detailed in Exhibit II, are 23,296, including 2,555 days added after charter-in fleet reconfiguration.

Time Charter Coverage - Positioned to Capture Market Improvement

Navios Holdings controls a fleet of 66 vessels totaling 6.7 million dwt, of which 40 are owned and 26 are chartered-in under long-term charters. Navios Holdings currently operates 59 vessels (19 Capesize, 19 Panamax, 19 Ultra Handymax and two Handysize vessels) totaling 6.0 million dwt. The current average age of the operating fleet is 7.8 years. Additionally, Navios Holdings has seven charter-in vessels expected to be delivered at various dates beginning in the fourth quarter of 2016 through the first quarter of 2017.

As of November 14, 2016, Navios Holdings has chartered-out 93.2% (including 20.6% days at index-linked charters), and 35.2% (including 26.7% days at index-linked charters) of available days for the remaining three months of 2016 and for 2017, respectively, which are expected to generate $29.9 million and $18.6 million in base revenue, respectively. The average daily charter-out base rate for the Core Fleet is estimated at $7,829 and $9,341 for the remaining three months of 2016 and for 2017, respectively. The average daily charter-in rate for the active long-term charter-in vessels for the remaining three months of 2016 is estimated at $12,187.

The above figures do not include the fleet of Navios South American Logistics Inc. ("Navios Logistics") and vessels servicing contracts of affreightment (collectively, the "Core Fleet").

Revenue from dry bulk vessel operations for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $49.7 million as compared to $63.6 million for the same period during 2015. The decrease in dry bulk revenue was mainly attributable to (i) a decrease in available days of our fleet by 1,030 days, mainly due to a decrease in short-term charter-in and long-term charter-in fleet available days; and (ii) the decline in the freight market during 2016, as compared to the same period in 2015.

Revenue from the logistics business was $63.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 as compared to $67.3 million for the same period during 2015. The decrease was mainly attributable to (i) a decrease in the volume of cargo moved in the dry port terminal; and (ii) a decrease in the number of available days of the cabotage fleet, and was partially mitigated by an increase in sales of products in the liquid terminal.

Net Loss of Navios Holdings was $27.5 million and $22.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.  Net Loss was affected by the items described in the table above. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net Loss of Navios Holdings for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $22.4 million as compared to $20.3 million for the same period of 2015. The $2.1 million increase in Adjusted Net Loss was mainly due to (i) an increase in depreciation and amortization by $1.0 million; (ii) a decrease in Adjusted EBITDA by $1.0 million; (iii) an increase in amortization for deferred drydock and special survey costs of $0.4 million; (iv) an increase in income tax expense of $0.3 million; and (v) an increase in share-based compensation expense of $0.1 million. This overall increase of $2.8 million was partially mitigated by a decrease in interest expense and finance cost, net by $0.7 million.

Net income of Navios Logistics was $2.8 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2016 as compared to $10.6 million for the same period in 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the three months ended September 30, 2016 decreased by $1.0 million to $38.5 million as compared to $39.5 million for the same period of 2015. The $1.0 million decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to (i) a $17.9 million decrease in revenue; and (ii) a $9.5 million decrease in equity in net earnings from affiliated companies. This overall decrease of $27.4 million was partially mitigated by (i) a $21.6 million decrease in time charter, voyage and logistics business expenses; (ii) a $2.9 million decrease in net income attributable to noncontrolling interest; (iii) a $1.0 million decrease in other expense, net; (iv) a $0.6 million decrease in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock and special survey costs); and (v) a $0.3 million decrease in general and administrative expenses (excluding share-based compensation expenses).

EBITDA of Navios Logistics was $19.1 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2016 as compared to $26.2 million for the same period in 2015.

Revenue from dry bulk vessel operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $142.9 million as compared to $170.4 million for the same period during 2015. The decrease in dry bulk revenue was mainly attributable to (i) a decrease in available days of our fleet by 1,056 days, mainly due to a decrease in short-term charter-in and long-term charter-in fleet available days; and (ii) the decline in the freight market during 2016, as compared to the same period in 2015.

Revenue from the logistics business was $177.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 as compared to the $198.7 million for the same period of 2015. This decrease was mainly attributable to (i) a decrease in sales of products in the liquid terminal, due to lower volume and price of products sold; (ii) a decrease in products transported in the dry and liquid port terminals; and (iii) a decrease in the number of available days of the cabotage fleet. This overall decrease was partially mitigated by an increase in dry and liquid cargoes transported in the barge business.

Net Loss of Navios Holdings was $61.4 million and $73.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.  Net Loss was affected by the items described in the table above. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net Loss of Navios Holdings for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $56.3 million as compared to $71.8 million for the same period of 2015.

This overall decrease of $19.1 million was partially mitigated by (i) an increase in income tax expense of $2.7 million; (ii) an increase of $0.6 million in amortization for deferred drydock and special survey costs; and (iii) an increase of $0.3 million in share-based compensation expense.

Net income of Navios Logistics was $15.8 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 as compared to $20.9 million for the same period in 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 increased by $16.4 million to $114.9 million as compared to $98.5 million for the same period of 2015. The $16.4 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to (i) a $66.9 million decrease in time charter, voyage and logistics business expenses; (ii) a $15.5 million increase in other income, net; (iii) a $3.0 million decrease in general and administrative expenses (excluding share-based compensation expenses); a $2.9 million decrease in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock and special survey costs); and a $1.9 million decrease in net income attributable to the noncontrolling interest.  This overall increase of $90.2 million was partially mitigated by (i) a $48.8 million decrease in revenue; and (ii) a $25.0 million decrease in equity in net earnings from affiliated companies.

EBITDA of Navios Logistics was $60.9 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 as compared to $64.5 million for the same period in 2015.

(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, and (ix) 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.
