Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. Reports Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter and Year Ended December 31, 2014

MONACO--(Marketwired - Feb 19, 2015) - Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. (NYSE: NM)

  • Revenue
    • 11% increase to $569.0 million for FY 2014

  • Adjusted EBITDA
    • 20% increase to $191.4 million for FY 2014

  • Dividend of $0.06 per share for Q4 2014

  • Positioned to weather the market
    • $250.1 million of cash
    • Operating expenses significantly below industry average
    • Diversified investment vehicle with multiple avenues of growth

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 fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2014.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased with our results for the fourth quarter of 2014. We reported revenue of $148.8 million and adjusted EBITDA of $37.8 million. We also announced a 6 cent dividend, representing a yield of about 6.0%."

Mrs. Frangou continued: "We are experiencing the lowest dry bulk rate environment in the 30 years the Baltic dry index has been recorded. In addition, the current charter rates are below the actual vessel operating costs. Typically, a depressed rate environment like this would cause accelerated scrapping and reduced deliveries, and we are seeing both. Year to date, scrapping has accelerated to 4.2 million DWT, more than half of one percent of the global fleet. We are also witnessing deliveries being delayed and a significant reduction in new orders compared to last year. Should the current market environment continue, we may also see layups of vessels. These developments suggest the market is rationalizing and given the continued strong demand for the underlying commodities, we should expect a healthier market in the medium term."

Revenue from drybulk vessel operations for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was $74.7 million as compared to $80.0 million for the same period during 2013. The decrease in drybulk revenue was mainly attributable to a decrease in the time charter equivalent rate ("TCE") per day by 16.6% to $11,085 per day in the fourth quarter of 2014, as compared to $13,291 per day in the same period of 2013. This decrease was partially mitigated by a net increase in available days of our fleet by 71 days.

Revenue from the logistics business was $74.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014 as compared to $50.6 million for the same period during 2013. The increase of $23.5 million was mainly attributable to (i) the increase in the Paraguayan liquid port's volume of products sold; and (ii) the commencement of operations of three new drycargo convoys under long-term time charter contracts during the second quarter of 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the three months ended December 31, 2014 decreased by $4.2 million to $37.8 million as compared to $42.0 million for the same period of 2013. The $4.2 million decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to (i) a $22.8 million increase in time charter, voyage and logistics business expenses; (ii) a $3.2 million increase in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock and special survey costs); (iii) a $1.9 million increase in other expenses, net; and (iv) a $0.4 million increase in net income attributable to the noncontrolling interest. This overall decrease of $28.3 million was mitigated by (i) a $18.2 million increase in revenue; (ii) a $1.3 million decrease in general and administrative expenses (excluding share-based compensation expenses); and (iii) a $4.6 million increase in equity in net earnings from affiliated companies.

EBITDA of Navios Logistics was $15.3 million for the three month period ended December 31, 2014 as compared to $14.3 million for the same period in 2013.

Net Loss of Navios Holdings for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was $5.0 million as compared to $70.0 million for the same period of 2013. Net Loss of Navios Holdings for the three months ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively, has been affected by the items mentioned in the footnote to the table above. Adjusted Net Loss of Navios Holdings for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was $19.2 million as compared to $18.1 million for the same period of 2013. The $1.1 million increase in Adjusted Net Loss was mainly due (i) a decrease in Adjusted EBITDA of $4.2 million; (ii) an increase in depreciation and amortization of $1.2 million; (iii) an increase in share-based compensation expense of $1.8 million; and (iv) an increase in amortization for deferred drydock and special survey costs of $0.4 million. This overall increase was partially offset by (i) a decrease in interest expense and finance cost, net of $4.8 million; and (ii) an increase in income tax benefit of $1.7 million.

Revenue from drybulk vessel operations for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $300.2 million as compared to $275.2 million for the same period during 2013. The increase in drybulk revenue was mainly attributable to an increase in available days for our fleet by 2,101 days. This increase was partially mitigated by a decrease in TCE per day by 1.7% to $11,830 per day in the year ended December 31, 2014, as compared to $12,029 per day in the same period of 2013.

Revenue from the logistics business was $268.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2014 as compared to $237.1 million for the same period during 2013. The increase of $31.7 million was mainly attributable to (i) an increase in volume of products transported and rates charged in the dry port terminal; (ii) the commencement of operations of three new drycargo convoys under long-term time charter contracts during the second quarter of 2014; (iii) an increase in the cabotage fleet's operating days and the higher time charter rates achieved; and (iv) an increase in the Paraguayan liquid port's volume of products sold.

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the year ended December 31, 2014 increased by $31.6 million to $191.4 million as compared to $159.8 million for the same period of 2013. The $31.6 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to (i) a $56.7 million increase in revenue; (ii) a $9.5 million increase in equity in net earnings from affiliated companies; and (iii) a $1.7 million decrease in general and administrative expenses (excluding share-based compensation expenses). This overall increase of $67.9 million was partially mitigated by (i) a $18.9 million increase in time charter, voyage and logistics business expenses; (ii) a $13.3 million increase in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock and special survey costs); (iii) a $3.9 million decrease in other income, net; and (iv) a $0.2 million increase in net income attributable to the noncontrolling interest.

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Logistics was $68.8 million (adjusted for the $27.3 million loss on bond extinguishment) for the year ended December 31, 2014 as compared to $56.8 million for the same period in 2013.

Net Loss of Navios Holdings for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $56.2 million as compared to $109.1 million for the same period of 2013. Net Loss of Navios Holdings for the year ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively, has been affected by the items mentioned in the footnote to the table above. Adjusted Net Loss of Navios Holdings for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $41.5 million as compared to $57.1 million for the same period of 2013. The $15.6 million decrease in Adjusted Net Loss was mainly due to (i) an increase in Adjusted EBITDA of $31.6 million; and (ii) a decrease in interest expense and finance cost, net of $0.4 million. This decrease was partially offset by (i) an increase in depreciation and amortization of $6.6 million; (ii) an increase in income tax expense of $4.4 million; (iii) an increase of $2.7 million in share-based compensation expense; and (iv) an increase of $2.7 million in amortization for deferred drydock and special survey costs.

(1)   Available days for the fleet are total calendar days the vessels were in Navios Holdings' possession for the relevant period after subtracting off-hire days associated with major repairs, drydocking 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 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)   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 represents net income/(loss) plus interest and finance costs plus depreciation and amortization and income taxes, if any, before stock-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA excluding certain items as described under "Earnings Highlights". EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are "non-GAAP financial measures" and should not be considered a substitute 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. Navios Holdings believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are a basis upon which liquidity can be assessed.

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 definition of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA used here may not be comparable to that used by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.

Navios Logistics EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used to measure the company's operating performance.

The following tables provide a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings (including Navios Logistics) and EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Logistics on a stand-alone basis:
