HIGHLIGHTS - RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Dividend of $0.05 per share of common stock

On August 11, 2014, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend in respect of the second quarter of 2014 of $0.05 per share of common stock payable on October 2, 2014 to stockholders of record as of September 17, 2014.

Vessel Deliveries

On June 16, 2014, Navios Acquisition took delivery of the Nave Neutrino, a 2003-built VLCC of 298,287 dwt, from an unaffiliated third party, for a purchase price of $43.5 million. The Nave Neutrino has been chartered out to a quality counterparty for six months at a rate based on an adjusted BITR TD3 index with an option for an additional six month period.

On July 21, 2014, Navios Acquisition took delivery of the Nave Electron, a 2002-built VLCC of 305,178 dwt, from an unaffiliated third party, for a purchase price of $41.0 million. The Nave Electron has been chartered out to a quality counterparty for minimum one year at a rate based on charterer's VLCC pool earnings. The Nave Electron has been provided as collateral under the 8.125% First Priority Ship Mortgage Notes due 2021, in place of the Nave Dorado and the Nave Lucida (MR2 product tankers). As a result, approximately $5.5 million of value has been added to the collateral package.

Credit Facility

In July 2014, Navios Acquisition entered into a term-loan facility with Deutsche Bank AG Filiale Deutschlandgeschäft and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB to (i) refinance $44.4 million of equal amount of the existing outstanding term loan of Deutsche Bank AG and to (ii) borrow an additional amount of up to $85.8 million to finance the purchase price of one VLCC, the Nave Neutrino, and four MR2 product tankers (the Nave Dorado, the Nave Lucida and two MR2 product tankers expected to be delivered in the third and fourth quarter of 2014, the Nave Pyxis and the Nave Sextans). The additional amount secured, bears interest at LIBOR plus 310 bps per annum and has an average amortization profile of approximately nine years.

Vessel Employment

In August 2014, charterers exercised their option to extend the existing charter of one LR1 Product Tanker, Nave Andromeda, for an additional 12 month period, at an increased rate of $13,000 net, plus 100% profit up to $16,000 and 50% profit sharing above $16,000.

In July 2014, Navios Acquisition chartered out the MR2 Product Tanker, the Buddy, for a period of four months at a rate $13,825 net per day.

In July 2014, Navios Acquisition agreed to extend the existing charter for two chemical product tankers, the Nave Cosmos and the Nave Polaris, for an additional 12 month period, at a rate based upon pool earnings.   

 In June 2014, Navios Acquisition agreed to extend the existing charter of one MR2 Product Tanker, the Nave Capella, for an additional six month period, at a rate $13,825 net per day.

Navios Acquisition currently owns 44 vessels, 11 VLCCs, 29 product tankers and four chemical tankers of which, 38 vessels are currently on-the-water with the remaining six vessels, all newbuildings, still to be delivered.

Time Charter Coverage

As of August 19, 2014, Navios Acquisition had contracted 96.7%, 52.3% and 21.7% of its available days on a charter-out basis for 2014, 2015 and 2016, respectively, equivalent to $229.9 million, $162.3 million and $108.4 million of expected revenue, respectively. The average contractual daily charter-out rate for the fleet is $18,857, $21,853 and $30,989 for 2014, 2015 and 2016, respectively.

Three month periods ended June 30, 2014 and 2013

Revenue for the three month period ended June 30, 2014 increased by $15.2 million or 32.3% to $62.2 million, as compared to $47.1 million for the same period in 2013. The increase was mainly attributable to the deliveries of 10 MR2 product tankers, two chemical tankers and five VLCCs during the period from April 1, 2013 until June 30, 2014. As a result of these vessel deliveries, available days of the fleet increased to 3,288 days for the three month period ended June 30, 2014, as compared to 2,095 days for the three month period ended June 30, 2013. TCE decreased to $18,508 for the three month period ended June 30, 2014, from $22,155 for the three month period ended June 30, 2013 due to the fact that the fleet on-the-water in the second quarter of 2014 included more smaller tankers (mainly MR2s), which are fixed at lower rates, compared to the fleet in the second quarter of 2013.

Excluding the effect of $1.5 million for non-cash stock-based compensation expense and $0.9 million loss on the sale of Shinyo Splendor, Adjusted EBITDA for the three month period ended June 30, 2014 increased by $5.6 million to $35.0 million from $29.4 million in the three month period ended June 30, 2013. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was due to: (a) $15.2 million increase in revenue; and (b) $0.3 million increase in Other income/(expense), net, partially mitigated by: (i) a $0.7 million increase in time charter expenses; (ii) an $8.0 million increase in management fees; and (iii) a $1.1 million increase in general and administrative expenses.

Net loss for the three month period ended June 30, 2014, amounting to $2.8 million, was adversely affected by $0.9 million loss related to the sale of vessel, the Shinyo Splendor and a $1.5 million non-cash stock- based compensation expense. Net loss for the three month period ended June 30, 2013, amounting to $1.5 million was adversely affected by $1.6 million of accelerated amortization of the intangible assets associated with charter-out contracts of two MR2 tanker vessels. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net loss for the three month period ended June 30, 2014, amounted to $0.4 million compared to a $0.1 million income, for the three month period ended June 30, 2013. The increase in Adjusted Net loss by approximately $0.5 million was due to: (a) an $2.4 million increase in depreciation and amortization due to the acquisitions of the vessels described above; and (b) a $4.1 million increase in interest expense and finance cost net; partially mitigated by (i) a $0.3 million decrease in direct vessel expenses; (ii) an increase of $5.6 million in Adjusted EBITDA; and (iii) a $0.1 million increase in interest income

Six month periods ended June 30, 2014 and 2013

Revenue for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 increased by $32.0 million or 35.1% to $123.2 million, as compared to $91.2 million for the same period in 2013. The increase was mainly attributable to the deliveries of 13 MR2 product tankers, two chemical tankers and five VLCCs during the period from January 1, 2013 until June 30, 2014. As a result of these vessel acquisitions, available days of the fleet increased to 6,367 days for the six month period ended June 30, 2014, as compared to 3,927 days for the six month period ended June 30, 2013. TCE decreased to $19,009 for the six month period ended June 30, 2014, from $22,887 for the six month period ended June 30, 2013 due to the fact that the fleet on-the-water in the first half of 2014 included more smaller tankers (mainly MR2s), which are fixed at lower rates, compared to the fleet in the first half of 2013.

Excluding the impact of $2.9 million for non-cash stock-based compensation expense, a $12.6 million non-cash impairment loss and loss on sale of vessel recognized for one of our VLCCs sold in May 2014 and a $1.2 million non-cash fair value loss related to other assets, Adjusted EBITDA for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 increased by $13.5 million to $70.8 million from $57.3 million in the six month period ended June 30, 2013. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was due to: (a) $32.0 million increase in revenue; and (b) $0.7 million increase in Other income/ (expense), net, partially mitigated by: (i) a $16.2 million increase in management fees; (ii) a $2.2 million increase in general and administrative expenses; and (iii) an $0.8 million increase in time charter expenses

Net loss for the six month period ended June 30, 2014, amounted to $15.6 million, was adversely affected by a $12.6 million non-cash impairment loss and loss on sale of vessel recognized for one of our VLCCs sold in May 2014, a $1.2 million non-cash fair value loss related to other assets and a $2.9 million non-cash stock-based compensation expense. Net loss for the six month period ended June 30, 2013, amounting to $0.8 million was adversely affected by $1.6 million of accelerated amortization of the intangible assets associated with charter-out contracts of two MR2 tanker vessels. Excluding the items described above, Adjusted Net income for the six month period ended June 30, 2014, amounted to $1.1 million, compared to $0.8 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2013. The increase in Adjusted Net income by approximately $0.2 million was due to an increase of: (i) $13.5 million in Adjusted EBITDA; and (ii) $0.3 million decrease in direct vessel expenses mitigated by: (a) $5.7 million increase in depreciation and amortization due to the acquisitions of the vessels described above; and (b) $7.9 million increase in interest expense and finance cost net.

(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 for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 in this document represents, loss plus interest expense and finance cost plus depreciation and amortization and finance income, before stock-based compensation of $2.9 million, impairment loss and loss on sale of vessel of $12.6 million and $1.2 million in connection with the change in fair value of other assets. For the six months ended June 30, 2013, there were no corresponding losses or expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three month period ended June 30, 2014 in this document represents, loss plus interest expense and finance cost plus depreciation and amortization and finance income, before stock-based compensation of $1.5 million, and loss on sale of vessel of $0.9 million. For the three months ended June 30, 2013, there were no corresponding losses or expenses.

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.
