Three month periods ended September 30, 2013 and 2012

Revenue for the three month period ended September 30, 2013 increased by $15.6 million or 41.3% to $53.4 million, as compared to $37.8 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 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. As a result of the vessel acquisitions, available days of the fleet increased to 2,646 days for the three month period ended September 30, 2013, as compared to 1,472 days for the three month period ended September 30, 2012. The increase in revenue was partially mitigated by the decrease in time charter equivalent ("TCE") to $18,835 for the three month period ended September 30, 2013, from $25,185 for the three month period ended September 30, 2012.

EBITDA for the three month period ended September 30, 2013, increased by $5.2 million to $29.2 million, as compared to $24.0 million for the same period in 2012. The increase in EBITDA was due to: (a) $15.6 million increase in revenue due to the acquisitions of the vessels described above; and (b) $0.4 million increase in other income/(expense), net. The above increase was partially mitigated by: (i) $2.9 million increase in time charter expenses (ii) $7.6 million increase in management fees; and (iii) $0.3 million increase in general and administrative expenses.

Net loss for the three month period ended September 30, 2013, amounting to $4.1 million was adversely affected by $2.4 million of accelerated amortization of the intangible assets associated with the charter-out contracts of two MR2 tanker vessels. Excluding this one-off item, Adjusted Net loss for the three month period ended September 30, 2013, amounted to $1.7 million compared to a $1.4 million Net loss for the three month period ended September 30, 2012. The increase in Net loss by $0.3 million was due to (a) $2.9 million increase in depreciation and amortization due to the acquisitions of vessels described above; (b) $2.5 million increase in interest expense and finance cost net; and c) $0.1 million decrease in interest income, partially mitigated by a $5.2 million increase in EBITDA.

Nine month periods ended September 30, 2013 and 2012 

Revenue for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013 increased by $35.2 million or 32.1% to $144.6 million, as compared to $109.4 million for the same period in 2012. The increase was mainly attributable to the acquisition 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 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. As a result of the vessel acquisitions, available days of the fleet increased to 6,573 days for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013, as compared to 4,107 days for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012. The increase in revenue was partially mitigated by the decrease in the time charter equivalent ("TCE") to $21,256 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013, from $26,074 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012.

EBITDA for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013, increased by $16.1 million to $86.5 million, as compared to $70.4 million for the same period in 2012. The increase in EBITDA was due to a $35.2 million increase in revenue due to the acquisitions of the vessels described above. The above increase was partially mitigated by: (i) $15.5 million increase in management fees; (ii) $0.8 million increase in general and administrative expenses; and (iii) $0.2 million increase in other (expense)/ income, net and (iv) $2.6 million increase in time charter expenses.

Net loss for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013, amounting to $4.9 million was adversely affected by $4.0 million of accelerated amortization of the intangible assets associated with the charter-out contracts of two MR2 tanker vessels. Excluding this one-off item, Adjusted Net loss for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013 was $0.9 million as compared to $4.1 million net loss for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012. The decrease in net loss by $3.3 million was due to a $16.1 million increase in EBITDA, partially mitigated by a: (a) $0.4 million increase in direct vessel expenses; (b) $6.8 million increase in depreciation and amortization due to the acquisitions of vessels discussed above; (c) $5.6 million increase in interest expense and finance cost, net 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
EBITDA

EBITDA represents net income/ (loss) plus interest expenses and finance cost plus depreciation and amortization and income taxes.

EBITDA is presented because Navios Acquisition believes that 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. 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 EBITDA is frequently used as a measure of operating results and the ability to meet debt service requirements, the definition of EBITDA used here may not be comparable to that used by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.
