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 third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2018.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I am pleased with the results of the third quarter of 2018, for which we reported revenue of $141.5 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $62.8 million. We continue to see the positive effects of healthier charter markets on our business. Rates for dry bulk vessels improved materially, with the TCE rate of our fleet for the third quarter of 2018 about 50% higher than the third quarter of 2017.  This increased our adjusted EBITDA from core shipping operations by almost 250% in the third quarter of 2018 compared to the third quarter of 2017.” 

Angeliki Frangou continued, “We have leveraged the increase in market rates through our chartering initiative that has 26 vessels chartered out on index linked agreements with an average charter rate equal to 110% of the respective index.  The charters provide Navios multiple options for fixing the charter rate for all or a portion of the remaining charter period.”

Revenue from dry bulk vessel operations for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $85.6 million, as compared to $61.0 million for the same period during 2017. The increase in dry bulk revenue was mainly attributable to the increase in the time charter equivalent (“TCE”) per day by 49.9% to $14,210 per day in the third quarter of 2018, as compared to $9,481 per day in the same period of 2017.

Revenue from the logistics business was $55.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to $59.6 million for the same period in 2017. The decrease was mainly attributable to (i) a $3.7 million decrease in revenue from the cabotage business mainly due to fewer operating days; (ii) a $2.8 million decrease in sales of products mainly due to a decrease in the Paraguayan liquid port's volumes of products sold; and (iii) a $1.9 million decrease in revenue from the barge business mainly related to liquid cargo transportation. The overall decrease was partially mitigated by (i) a $4.7 million increase in revenue from the port terminal business mainly due to the commencement of operations at the new iron ore terminal.

Net Loss of Navios Holdings was $1.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to $28.3 million for the same period in 2017.

The $29.2 million increase in Adjusted Net Income was mainly due to (i) a $31.6 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA; (ii) a $1.6 million decrease in depreciation and amortization; and (iii) a $0.3 million increase in income tax benefit. This overall increase of $33.5 million was partially mitigated by (i) a $3.9 million increase in interest expense and finance cost, net; (ii) a $0.3 million increase in amortization for deferred drydock and special survey costs; and (iii) a $0.1 million increase in share-based compensation expense.

Net Income of Navios Logistics was $6.7 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2018, as compared to $1.8 million for the same period in 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the three months ended September 30, 2018 increased by $31.6 million to $62.8 million, as compared to $31.2 million for the same period in 2017.

This overall increase of $38.4 million was partially mitigated by (i) a $5.1 million decrease in equity in net earnings from affiliated companies; and (ii) a $1.7 million increase in net income attributable to noncontrolling interest.

EBITDA of Navios Logistics was $25.5 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2018, as compared to $18.2 million for the same period in 2017.

(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.

Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA, excluding certain items as described under “Earnings Highlights”.  Adjusted Income/(Loss) and Adjusted Basic Loss per Share represent Net Income/(Loss) and Basic Loss per Share, excluding certain items as described under “Earnings Highlights”. We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as liquidity measures and reconcile EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by operating activities, the most comparable U.S. GAAP liquidity measure. EBITDA is calculated as follows: net cash provided by operating activities adding back, when applicable and as the case may be, the effect of (i) net increase/(decrease) in operating assets, (ii) net (increase)/decrease in operating liabilities, (iii) net interest cost, (iv) deferred finance charges and gains/(losses) on bond and debt extinguishment, (v) (provision)/recovery for losses on accounts receivable, (vi) equity in affiliates, net of dividends received, (vii) payments for drydock and special survey costs, (viii) noncontrolling interest, (ix) gain/ (loss) on sale of assets/ subsidiaries, (x) unrealized (loss)/gain on derivatives, and (xi) loss on sale and reclassification to earnings of available-for-sale securities and impairment charges. Navios Holdings believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are a basis upon which liquidity can be assessed and represents useful information to investors regarding Navios Holdings’ ability to service and/or incur indebtedness, pay capital expenditures, meet working capital requirements and pay dividends. Navios Holdings also believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used (i) by prospective and current lessors as well as potential lenders to evaluate potential transactions; (ii) to evaluate and price potential acquisition candidates; and (iii) by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry.

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

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as an analytical tool, and therefore, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the analysis of Navios Holdings’ results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are: (i) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; (ii) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the amounts necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt and other financing arrangements; and (iii) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such capital expenditures. Because of these limitations, among others, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a principal indicator of Navios Holdings’ performance. Furthermore, our calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to that reported by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.

Navios Logistics EBITDA is used to measure its operating performance.
