Revenue from dry bulk vessel operations for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $75.4 million as compared to $62.1 million for the same period during 2013. The increase in dry bulk revenue was mainly attributable to (i) an increase in the time charter equivalent rate ("TCE") per day by 12.5% to $11,923 per day in the second quarter of 2014, as compared to $10,600 per day in the same period of 2013; (ii) an increase in available days for owned vessels by 556 days; and (iii) an increase in charter-in fleet available days by 253 days.

Revenue from the logistics business was $70.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 as compared to $63.5 million for the same period of 2013. This increase was mainly attributable to (i) the increase in products transported in the dry port terminal; (ii) commencement of operations of three new dry cargo convoys in the barge business; and (iii) the increase in the cabotage fleet's operating days and higher time charter rates achieved.

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the three months ended June 30, 2014 increased by $12.6 million to $51.4 million as compared to $38.8 million for the same period of 2013. The $12.6 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to (i) a $19.8 million increase in revenue; (ii) a $2.1 million decrease in time charter, voyage and logistics business expenses; (iii) a $3.0 million increase in equity in net earnings from affiliated companies; and (iv) a $0.6 million decrease in general and administrative expenses (excluding share-based compensation expenses). This overall increase of $25.5 million was mitigated by (i) a $5.7 million decrease in other income, net (excluding the non-cash loss on available-for-sale securities); (ii) a $6.7 million increase in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock and special survey costs); and (iii) a $0.5 million increase in net income attributable to the noncontrolling interest (excluding the portion of loss on Navios Logistics' bond extinguishment).

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Logistics was $21.4 million (adjusted for $27.3 million loss on bond extinguishment) for the three month period ended June 30, 2014 as compared to $17.6 million for the same period in 2013.

Adjusted Net Loss of Navios Holdings for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $7.7 million as compared to a $15.9 million loss for the same period of 2013. The $8.2 million decrease in Adjusted Net Loss was mainly due to an increase in Adjusted EBITDA of $12.6 million. This increase was partially offset by (i) an increase in interest expense and finance cost, net of $1.1 million; (ii) an increase in depreciation and amortization of $1.6 million; (iii) an increase in income tax expense of $0.7 million; (iv) an increase of $0.3 million in share-based compensation expense; and (v) an increase of $0.7 million in amortization for deferred drydock and special survey costs.

Revenue from dry bulk vessel operations for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $152.0 million as compared to $122.7 million for the same period during 2013. The increase in dry bulk revenue was mainly attributable to (i) an increase in TCE per day by 10.5% to $12,389 per day in the first half of 2014, as compared to $11,211 per day in the same period of 2013; (ii) an increase in available days for owned vessels by 1,090 days; and (iii) an increase in charter-in fleet available days by 574 days.

Revenue from the logistics business was $115.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 as compared to $136.7 million for the same period of 2013. This decrease was mainly attributable to the decrease in the Paraguayan liquid port's volume of products sold, partially mitigated by (i) an increase in products transported in the dry port terminal; (ii) commencement of operations of three new dry cargo convoys in the barge business; and (iii) higher time charter rates achieved in the cabotage business.

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 increased by $33.9 million to $111.2 million as compared to $77.3 million for the same period of 2013. The $33.9 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to (i) a $8.2 million increase in revenue; (ii) a $20.9 million decrease in time charter, voyage and logistics business expenses; (iii) a $11.3 million increase in equity in net earnings from affiliated companies; and (iv) a $1.5 million decrease in net income attributable to the noncontrolling interest (excluding the portion of loss on Navios Logistics' bond extinguishment). This overall increase of $41.9 million was partially mitigated by (i) a $0.3 million decrease in other income, net (excluding the non-cash loss on available-for-sale securities); (ii) a $6.5 million increase in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock and special survey costs); and (iii) a $1.2 million increase in general and administrative expenses (excluding share-based compensation expenses).

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Logistics was $35.4 million (adjusted for $27.3 million loss on bond extinguishment) for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 as compared to $31.7 million for the same period in 2013.

Adjusted Net Loss of Navios Holdings for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $5.7 million as compared to $26.0 million for the same period of 2013. The $20.3 million decrease in Adjusted Net Loss was mainly due to an increase in Adjusted EBITDA of $33.9 million. This increase was partially offset by (i) an increase in interest expense and finance cost, net of $3.9 million; (ii) an increase in depreciation and amortization of $2.9 million; (iii) an increase in income tax expense of $4.7 million; (iv) an increase of $0.6 million in share-based compensation expense; and (v) an increase of $1.5 million in amortization for deferred drydock and special survey costs.

Fleet Summary Data:

The following table reflects certain key indicators indicative of the performance of the Navios Holdings' dry bulk operations (excluding the Navios Logistics fleet) and its fleet performance for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

(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

Adjusted EBITDA represents net income plus interest and finance costs plus depreciation and amortization and income taxes, if any, unless otherwise stated and excludes certain items as described under "Earnings Highlights". 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 generally accepted accounting principles in the United States or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.

Adjusted EBITDA is presented to provide additional information with respect to the ability of Navios Holdings to satisfy its respective obligations including debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements. 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.

Navios Logistics Adjusted EBITDA is used to measure company's operating performance.

The following tables provide a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings and Navios Logistics, which in the case of Navios Holdings is on a consolidated basis:
