MONACO, Feb. 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Navios Maritime Partners L.P. (“Navios Partners”) (NYSE: NMM), an international owner and operator of dry cargo and tanker vessels, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2023.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairwoman and Chief Executive Officer of Navios Partners stated, “I am pleased with the results for the full year and fourth quarter of 2023. For the full year, we reported revenue of $1.3 billion and net income of $433.6 million. For the quarter, we reported revenue of $327.3 million and net income of $132.4 million. Earnings per common unit were $14.08 for the full year and $4.30 for the quarter.”

Angeliki Frangou continued, “In 2023, the world continued to experience disruption in normal trade routes. Regional conflict in Ukraine and the Middle East created inefficiency, and traffic in the Suez Canal recently shrank by over 50%. In addition, most of the top ten economies are growing, with China leveraging its export strength. This robust environment can change quickly should conflict-driven inefficiencies clear and / or economies suffer some weakness. As usual, we continue to focus on things that we can control, such as reducing leverage, modernizing our energy efficient fleet and taking long-term cover where available.”

          Completed the sale of two vessels for $22.3 million in Q4 2023
During the fourth quarter of 2023, Navios Partners completed the sale of a 2004-built capesize of 180,310 dwt and a 2004-built panamax of 75,707 dwt, to unrelated third parties, for aggregate gross sale proceeds of $22.3 million.
          Agreed to sell two vessels for $63.1 million in Q1 2024
In January 2024, Navios Partners agreed to sell a 2009-built VLCC of 297,188 dwt and a 2004-built panamax of 76,602 dwt, to unrelated third parties, for aggregate gross sale proceeds of $63.1 million. The sales are expected to be completed during the first half of 2024.      
  Two newbuilding containerships delivered in Q4 2023 and YTD 2024
In January 2024 and November 2023, Navios Partners took delivery of a 2024-built 5,300 TEU containership and a 2023-built 5,300 TEU containership, respectively. Both vessels have been chartered-out at an average rate of $37,050 net per day for an average period of 5.2 years.
  $136.9 million contracted revenue agreed in Q4 2023 and YTD 2024; $3.3 billion total contracted revenue

Navios Partners has entered into new long-term charters which are expected to generate revenue of $136.9 million.

  • One VLCC has been bareboat chartered-out for a period of five years, at a floating bareboat rate based on adjusted TD3C-WS with a floor of $26,730 net per day and a ceiling of $36,630 net per day (equal to a floor of $37,018 net per day and a ceiling of $46,918 net per day if grossed up by the fixed vessel operating expense for 2023). Contracted revenue has been calculated using the average of the floor and ceiling rates, excluding the adjustment for fixed vessel operating expense, for the five year period.
  • Two LR1 product tankers have been chartered-out for an average period of 3.3 years, at an average rate of $27,270 net per day.
  • One 2005-built capesize has been chartered-out for a period of 2.3 years, at a rate of $17,575 net per day.

Including the above long-term charters, Navios Partners currently has $3.3 billion contracted revenue through 2037.

Financing update

In January 2024, Navios Partners entered into a new credit facility with a commercial bank for up to $40.0 million in order to refinance three vessels. The credit facility: (i) matures five years after the drawdown date; and (ii) bears interest at Secured Overnight Financing Rate plus 195 bps per annum. The full amount is expected to be drawn during the first quarter of 2024.

In October 2023, Navios Partners completed a $22.8 million sale and leaseback transaction with an unrelated third party, in order to finance one dry bulk vessel. The sale and leaseback transaction: (i) matures 12 years from the date of the delivery of the vessel by the owners to the charterer; and (ii) bears interest at Term Secured Overnight Financing Rate plus 220 bps per annum.

Cash distribution

The Board of Directors of Navios Partners declared a cash distribution for the fourth quarter of 2023 of $0.05 per unit. The cash distribution will be paid on February 14, 2024 to unitholders of record as of February 12, 2024. The declaration and payment of any further dividends remain subject to the discretion of the Board of Directors and will depend on, among other things, Navios Partners’ cash requirements as measured by market opportunities and restrictions under its credit agreements and other debt obligations and such other factors as the Board of Directors may deem advisable.

Operating Highlights

Navios Partners owns and operates a fleet comprised of 77 dry bulk vessels, 47 containerships and 52 tankers, including 16 newbuilding tankers (ten aframax/LR2 and six MR2 product tanker chartered-in vessels under bareboat contracts), that are expected to be delivered through 2027 and ten newbuilding containerships (eight 5,300 TEU containerships and two 7,700 TEU containerships), that are expected to be delivered through 2025. The fleet excludes one VLCC and one panamax vessels agreed to be sold and two optional newbuilding aframax/LR2 tankers under discussion.

Three month periods ended December 31, 2023 and 2022

Time charter and voyage revenues for the three month period ended December 31, 2023 decreased by $43.6 million, or 11.8%, to $327.3 million, as compared to $370.9 million for the same period in 2022. The decrease in revenue was mainly attributable to the decrease in the available days of our fleet and the decrease in Time Charter Equivalent (“TCE”) rate. For the three month periods ended December 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, time charter and voyage revenues were affected by $10.5 million and $18.1 million, respectively, relating to the straight line effect of the containership and tanker charters with de-escalating rates. The TCE rate decreased by 5.1% to $22,625 per day, as compared to $23,840 per day for the same period in 2022. The available days of the fleet decreased by 6.1% to 13,527 days for the three month period ended December 31, 2023, as compared to 14,409 days for the same period in 2022 mainly due to the sale of vessels, partially mitigated by the deliveries of newbuilding and secondhand vessels.

EBITDA of Navios Partners for the three month periods ended December 31, 2023 and 2022 was affected by the items described in the table above. Excluding these items, Adjusted EBITDA increased by $26.5 million to $227.1 million for the three month period ended December 31, 2023, as compared to $200.6 million for the same period in 2022. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to a: (i) $54.5 million increase in other income, net mainly due to the prepayment of hire received for the early termination of the charter parties of two containerships; (ii) $9.7 million decrease in time charter and voyage expenses mainly due to the decrease in bunker expenses arising from the decreased days of freight voyages in the fourth quarter of 2023 and bareboat and charter-in hire expenses of the dry bulk fleet; (iii) $2.9 million decrease in vessel operating expenses mainly due to the sale of vessels; (iv) $2.5 million decrease in general and administrative expenses mainly due to the sale of vessels; and (v) $0.5 million decrease in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock, special survey costs and other capitalized items). The above increase was partially mitigated by a $43.6 million decrease in time charter and voyage revenues.

Net Income for the three month periods ended December 31, 2023 and 2022 was affected by the items described in the table above. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net Income increased by $20.2 million to $132.9 million for the three month period ended December 31, 2023, as compared to $112.7 million for the same period in 2022. The increase in Adjusted Net Income was primarily due to a: (i) $26.5 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA; (ii) $2.5 million increase in interest income; and (iii) $0.2 million decrease in interest expense and finance cost, net, that were partially mitigated by a $9.0 million negative impact from the depreciation and amortization, mainly due to a $7.3 million decrease in the amortization of the unfavorable lease terms and a $4.6 million increase in amortization of deferred drydock, special survey costs and other capitalized items, partially mitigated by a $2.9 million decrease in depreciation and amortization expense.

Years ended December 31, 2023 and 2022

Time charter and voyage revenues for the year ended December 31, 2023 increased by $96.4 million, or 8.0%, to $1,306.9 million, as compared to $1,210.5 million for the same period in 2022. The increase in revenue was mainly attributable to the increase in the available days of our fleet, partially mitigated by the decrease in TCE rate. For the year ended December 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, time charter and voyage revenues were affected by $40.7 million and $48.2 million, respectively, relating to the straight line effect of the containership and tanker charters with de-escalating rates. The TCE rate decreased by 3.1% to $22,337 per day, as compared to $23,042 per day for the same period in 2022. The available days of the fleet increased by 10.0% to 54,766 days for the year ended December 31, 2023, as compared to 49,804 days for the same period in 2022, mainly due to the acquisition of the 36-vessel dry bulk fleet from Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. and the deliveries of newbuilding and secondhand vessels, partially mitigated by the sale of vessels.

EBITDA of Navios Partners for the years ended December 31, 2023 and 2022 was affected by the items described in the table above. Excluding these items, Adjusted EBITDA increased by $79.7 million to $747.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2023, as compared to $667.9 million for the same period in 2022. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to a: (i) $96.4 million increase in time charter and voyage revenues; (ii) $52.2 million increase in other income, net mainly due to the prepayment of hire received for the early termination of the charter parties of two containerships; and (iii) $1.8 million decrease in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock, special survey costs and other capitalized items). The above increase was partially mitigated by a: (i) $37.6 million increase in time charter and voyage expenses, mainly due to the increase in bunker expenses arising from the increased days of freight voyages in 2023 and bareboat and charter-in hire expenses of the tanker and dry bulk fleet; (ii) $19.7 million increase in vessel operating expenses in accordance with our management agreements, mainly due to the expansion of our fleet; and (iii) $13.4 million increase in general and administrative expenses mainly due to the expansion of our fleet in accordance with our administrative services agreement.

Net Income for the years ended December 31, 2023 and 2022 was affected by the items described in the table above. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net Income decreased by $46.5 million to $383.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2023, as compared to $429.9 million for the same period in 2022. The decrease in Adjusted Net Income was primarily due to: (i) an $85.5 million negative impact from the depreciation and amortization, mainly due to a $55.1 million decrease in the amortization of the unfavorable lease terms, a $16.0 million increase in depreciation and amortization expense and a $14.4 million increase in amortization of deferred drydock, special survey costs and other capitalized items; and (ii) a $50.5 million increase in interest expense and finance cost, net, partially mitigated by a: (i) $79.7 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA; and (ii) $9.8 million increase in interest income.

(1)   Available days for the fleet represent total calendar days the vessels were in Navios Partners’ possession for the relevant period after subtracting off-hire days associated with scheduled repairs, drydockings or special surveys and ballast days relating to voyages. The shipping industry uses available days to measure the number of days in a relevant period during which a vessel is 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 Partners’ 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 efficiency in finding employment for vessels and minimizing the amount of days that its vessels are off-hire for reasons other than scheduled repairs, drydockings or special surveys.
(4)   TCE rate: TCE rate per day is defined as voyage, time charter revenues and charter-out revenues under bareboat contract (grossed up by the applicable fixed vessel operating expenses for the respective periods) less voyage expenses during a period divided by the number of available days during the period. The TCE rate per day is a customary 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, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings per Common Unit, basic and diluted are “non-U.S. GAAP financial measures” and should not be used in isolation or considered substitutes 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.

EBITDA represents net income before interest and finance costs, depreciation and amortization (including intangible accelerated amortization) and income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA excluding certain items, as described under “Earnings Highlights”. Navios Partners uses Adjusted EBITDA as a liquidity measure and reconciles EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by operating activities, the most comparable U.S. GAAP liquidity measure. EBITDA in this document 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 in operating assets; (ii) net decrease/(increase) in operating liabilities; (iii) net interest cost; (iv) amortization and write-off of deferred finance costs and discount; (v) gain/ (loss) on sale of assets, net; (vi) non-cash amortization of deferred revenue and straight line effect of the containerships and tankers charters with de-escalating rates; (vii) stock-based compensation expense; and (viii) amortization of operating lease assets/ liabilities. Navios Partners believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are each the basis upon which liquidity can be assessed and presents useful information to investors regarding Navios Partners’ ability to service and/or incur indebtedness, pay capital expenditures, meet working capital requirements and make cash distributions. Navios Partners also believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used: (i) by 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.

Each of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the analysis of Navios Partners’ 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; and (ii) 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, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a principal indicator of Navios Partners’ 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.

We present Adjusted Net Income by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Our presentation of Adjusted Net Income adjusts net income for the items described above under “Earnings Highlights”. The definition of Adjusted Net Income used here may not be comparable to that used by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation. Adjusted Basic Earnings per Common Unit is defined as Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average number of common units outstanding for each of the periods presented, basic and diluted.
