On February 4, 2014 Navios Acquisition took delivery of the Nave Galactic, a 2009-built VLCC of 297,168 dwt. The Nave Galactic has been chartered out to a high quality counterparty for one year at a rate based on the adjusted TD3 index plus a premium.

On December 6, 2013, Navios Acquisition sold the Shinyo Navigator, a 300,549 dwt VLCC built in 1996, for net proceeds of $17.4 million. The Shinyo Navigator was part of the collateral package securing the 8.125% First Priority Ship Mortgage Notes due 2021.

(Fleet data includes the delivery of the Nave Quasar, expected on February 12, 2014)

Improvement of collateral package of Senior Notes by $6.9 million

In February 2014, the Shinyo Splendor, the Nave Atropos, the Nave Rigel and the cash proceeds from the sale of the Shinyo Navigator, having a total value of $124.4 million are being released from the collateral package securing the 8.125% First Priority Ship Mortgage Notes due 2021 and are being substituted by the two VLCCs; the Nave Galactic and the Nave Quasar having a total value of $131.3 million.

In February 2014, Navios Acquisition entered into a loan agreement of $51.0 million to finance the Nave Atropos and the Nave Rigel. The facility bears interest at a margin of LIBOR plus 310 bps and has an amortization profile of 16 years.

Time Charter Coverage

In February 2014, Navios Acquisition also announced that it has chartered the other two of the three VLCCs that it had agreed to acquire in November 2013.

The Nave Quasar, a 2010-built VLCC of 297,376, dwt has been chartered out to a high quality counterparty for one year at a base rate of $20,475 (net) per day plus 50% profit sharing in excess of $24,375 (net) per day. The charterer has been granted an option for an additional year at a base rate of $25,350 (net) per day plus 50% profit sharing in excess of $29,250(net) per day.

The Nave Buena Suerte, a 2011-built VLCC of 297,491 dwt, has been chartered out to a high quality counter party for a minimum of one year at a rate based on the charterer's VLCC pool earnings.

As of February 12, 2014, Navios Acquisition has contracted 84.6%, 44.2% and 22.0% of its available days on a charter-out basis for 2014, 2015 and 2016, respectively, equivalent to $209.6 million, $153.0 million and $107.8 million of revenue, respectively.

Three month periods ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 

Revenue for the three month period ended December 31, 2013 increased by $16.1 million or 38.7% to $57.8 million, as compared to $41.7 million for the same period in 2012. The increase was mainly attributable to the acquisitions of the Nave Cetus in October 2012, the Nave Aquila in November 2012, the Nave Bellatrix in January 2013, the Nave Rigel in February 2013, the Nave Orion in March 2013, the Nave Atropos in April 2013, the Nave Titan and the Nave Equinox in June 2013, the Nave Capella, the Nave Pulsar and the Nave Universe in July 2013, the Nave Celeste in August 2013, the Nave Constellation, the Nave Alderamin, the Nave Dorado and the Bougainville in September 2013 and the Nave Lucida in October 2013. As a result of the above, available days of the fleet increased to 3,080 days for the three month period ended December 31, 2013, as compared to 1,679 days for the three month period ended December 31, 2012. The increase in revenue was partially mitigated by the decrease in time charter equivalent ("TCE") to $18,155 for the three month period ended December 31, 2013, from $24,526 for the three month period ended December 31, 2012.

Excluding the impact of a $21.1 million loss on the sale of the Shinyo Navigator, a $34.0 million loss on bond and debt extinguishment and a $1.1 million for non- cash share-based compensation expense, Adjusted EBITDA for the three month period ended December 31, 2013 increased by $9.0 million to $36.1 million from $27.1 million in the three month period ended December 31, 2012. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was due to: (a) a $16.1 million increase in revenue; and (b) a $4.5 million increase in other income recognized in connection with the rehabilitation process for a defaulted charterer, partially mitigated by a: (i) $1.4 million increase in time charter expenses; (ii) $1.3 million increase in general and administrative expenses; and (iii) $8.9 million increase in management fees.

Net loss for the three month period ended December 31, 2013, amounting to $53.7 million was adversely affected by a $21.1 million loss on the sale of the Shinyo Navigator, a $34.0 million loss on bond and debt extinguishment and a $1.1 million non- cash share-based compensation expense. Excluding these other items, Adjusted Net income for the three month period ended December 31, 2013, amounted to $2.5 million, compared to a $0.3 million Net income for the three month period ended December 31, 2012. The increase in Adjusted Net income by approximately $2.2 million was due to an increase of $9.0 million in Adjusted EBITDA mitigated by; (a) $3.4 million increase in depreciation and amortization due to the acquisitions of vessels described above; (b) $3.4 million increase in interest expense and finance cost net; and (c) $0.1 million increase in direct vessel expenses.

Year ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 

Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2013 increased by $51.3 million or 34.0% to $202.4 million, as compared to $151.1 million for the same period in 2012. The increase was mainly attributable to the acquisitions of the Nave Cetus in October 2012, the Nave Aquila in November 2012, the Nave Bellatrix in January 2013, the Nave Rigel in February 2013, the Nave Orion in March 2013, the Nave Atropos in April 2013, the Nave Titan and the Nave Equinox in June 2013, the Nave Capella, the Nave Pulsar and the Nave Universe in July 2013, the Nave Celeste in August 2013, the Nave Constellation, the Nave Alderamin, the Nave Dorado and the Bougainville in September 2013 and the Nave Lucida in October 2013. As a result of the vessel acquisitions, available days of the fleet increased to 9,653 days for the year ended December 31, 2013, as compared to 5,786 days for the year ended December 31, 2012. The increase in revenue was partially mitigated by the decrease in the time charter equivalent ("TCE") to $20,267 for the year ended December 31, 2013, from $25,625 for the year ended December 31, 2012.

Excluding the impact of a $21.1 million loss on the sale of the Shinyo Navigator, a $34.0 million loss on bond and debt extinguishment and a $1.1 million for non-cash share- based compensation expense, Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2013 increased by $25.2 million to $122.6 million from $97.5 million in the year ended December 31, 2013. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was due to (a) $51.3 million increase in revenue due to the acquisitions of the vessels described above and (b) $4.5 million increase in other income. The above increase was partially mitigated by a: (i) $24.3 million increase in management fees; (ii) $3.9 million increase in time charter expenses; (iii) $2.1 million increase in general and administrative expenses; and (iv) $0.3 million increase in other expense.

Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2013, amounting to $58.6 million was adversely affected by a $21.1 million loss on the sale of the Shinyo Navigator, a $34.0 million loss on bond and debt extinguishment and $1.1 million non- cash share-based compensation expense. Excluding these other items, Adjusted Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $2.4 million as compared to $3.8 million net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012. The decrease in Adjusted Net loss by $1.4 million was due to a $25.2 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA, partially mitigated by a: (a) $14.2 million increase in depreciation and amortization due to the acquisitions of vessels discussed above; (b) $9.0 million increase in interest expense and finance cost, net; (c) $0.5 million increase in direct vessel expenses; and (d) $0.1 million decrease in interest income.

(1) Available days for the fleet represent total calendar days the vessels were in Navios Acquisition's possession for the relevant period after subtracting off-hire days associated with scheduled repairs, drydockings 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, drydockings or special surveys. 

(4) Time Charter Equivalent Rate: Time Charter Equivalent Rate 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 Time Charter Equivalent Rate is a standard shipping industry performance measure used primarily to present the actual daily earnings generated by vessels on various types of charter contracts for the number of available days of the fleet.

Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

ADJUSTED EBITDA 
Adjusted EBITDA represents net income/ (loss) plus interest expenses and finance cost plus depreciation and amortization and income taxes adjusted for the loss on sale of vessel, the loss on bond and debt extinguishment and for the non-cash share-based compensation expense.

Adjusted EBITDA is presented because Navios Acquisition believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a 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. Adjusted EBITDA is a "non-GAAP financial measure" and should not be considered a substitute for net income, cash flow from operating activities and other operations or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. While Adjusted EBITDA is frequently used as a measure of operating results and the ability to meet debt service requirements, the definition of Adjusted EBITDA used here may not be comparable to that used by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.
