MONACO, Nov. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Navios Maritime Midstream Partners L.P. (“Navios Midstream”) (NYSE: NAP), an owner and operator of tanker vessels, reported its financial results today for the third quarter and the nine month period ended September 30, 2018. 

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Merger Agreement with Navios Acquisition 

On October 8, 2018 Navios Midstream and Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation ("Navios Acquisition") (NYSE:NNA) entered into a definitive merger agreement under which Navios Acquisition will acquire all of the publicly held units of Navios Midstream in exchange for shares of  Navios Acquisition.  

The conflicts committee of the board of directors of Navios Midstream negotiated the transaction on behalf of Navios Midstream and its public unitholders. The transaction was unanimously approved by the Conflicts Committee, the board of directors of Navios Midstream and the board of directors of Navios Acquisition.

The approval and adoption of the merger agreement and the merger requires approval by a majority of the outstanding Navios Midstream common units. Navios Acquisition owns a sufficient number of Navios Midstream common units to approve the merger on behalf of all Navios Midstream unitholders and has agreed to consent to the merger. The closing of the merger is subject to customary closing conditions, including effectiveness of a registration statement on Form F-4 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on October 30, 2018 and the mailing of an information statement to Navios Midstream unitholders.

Cash Distribution

The Board of Directors of Navios Midstream declared a cash distribution for the third quarter of 2018 of $0.125 per unit. The cash distribution is payable on November 14, 2018 to unitholders of record as of November 8, 2018.

Navios Midstream’s ability to make distributions to its unitholders depends on the performance of its subsidiaries and their ability to distribute funds to it. The ability of Navios Midstream’s subsidiaries to make distributions to it may be restricted by, among other things, the provisions of existing and future indebtedness, market conditions, applicable partnership and limited liability company laws and other laws and regulations.

Time charter coverage

Navios Midstream has entered into charter-out agreements for its vessels, with a remaining average term of 2.6 years, which are expected to provide a stable base of revenue and distributable cash flow. Navios Midstream has currently contracted out 100.0% of its available days for 2018 and 50.8% for 2019, expecting to generate revenues, including the backstop commitment provided by Navios Acquisition, of approximately $83.4 million and $44.7 million for 2018 and 2019, respectively. The average expected daily charter-out rate for the fleet is $39,007 and $40,225 for 2018 and 2019, respectively.

Three month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017

Revenue for the three month period ended September 30, 2018 increased by $1.9 million to $22.6 million, as compared to $20.7 million for the same period in 2017. The increase was mainly attributable to the increase in available days from 522 in the three month period ended September 30, 2017 to 548 days in the three month period ended September 30, 2018, due to certain prior period unscheduled off-hires among which the prolonged drydock of one of our vessels incurred in the three month period ended September 30, 2017. The TCE rate was $39,355 for the three month period ended September 30, 2018 and $39,292 for the three month period ended September 30, 2017.

EBITDA increased by approximately $1.0 million to $15.6 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2018, as compared to $14.5 million for the same period in 2017. The increase in EBITDA was mainly due to a: (a) $1.9 million increase in revenue; and (b) $0.4 million increase in other income; partially mitigated by a (i) $0.8 million increase in time charter and voyage expenses; and (ii) $0.4 million increase in general and administrative expenses.

Net income increased by $1.0 million to $4.9 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2018, as compared to $3.9 million for the same period in 2017. The increase in net income of approximately $1.0 million was mainly attributable to a: (a) $1.0 million increase in EBITDA; (b) $0.5 million net decrease in depreciation and amortization due to the sale of the Shinyo Kannika and the acquisition of the Nave Galactic in the first quarter of 2018; partially mitigated by a: (i) $0.4 million increase in interest expenses and finance cost; and (ii) $0.2 million increase in direct vessel expenses.

The reserve for estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures for the three month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was $2.6 million and $2.5 million, respectively (please see “Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in Exhibit 3).

Navios Midstream generated an Operating Surplus for the three month period ended September 30, 2018 of $9.6 million. Operating Surplus is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors to assist in evaluating a partnership’s ability to make quarterly cash distributions (please see “Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in Exhibit 3).

Earnings per common unit for the three month period ended September 30, 2018 were $0.23.

Nine month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017

Revenue for the nine month period ended September 30, 2018 increased by $2.8 million to $63.2 million, as compared to $60.4 million for the same period in 2017. The increase was mainly attributable to the increase in available days from 1,525 in the nine month period ended September 30, 2017 to 1,587 days in the nine month period ended September 30, 2018, due to certain prior period unscheduled off-hires among which the prolonged drydock of one of our vessels incurred in the three month period ended September 30, 2017. The TCE rate was $38,818 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2018 and $39,043 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2017.

EBITDA for the nine month period ended September 30, 2018, was affected by a $32.4 million book loss on the sale of the Shinyo Kannika. Excluding this item, Adjusted EBITDA for the nine month period ended September 30, 2018, was $44.0 million compared to $41.6 million for the same period in 2017. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA by $2.3 million was due to a: (a) $2.8 million increase in revenue; and (b) $0.9 million increase in other income, net; partially mitigated by a (i) $0.8 million increase in time charter and voyage expenses; and (ii) $0.6 million increase in general and administrative expenses.

Net loss for the nine month period ended September 30, 2018 amounted to $20.4 million as a result of the above mentioned $32.4 million loss on sale of vessel.  Excluding this item Adjusted net income was $12.0 million compared to $10.3 million for the same period in 2017. The increase of $1.7 million was attributable to a: (a) $2.3 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA; (b) $1.2 million net decrease in depreciation and amortization due to the sale of the Shinyo Kannika and the acquisition of the Nave Galactic in the first quarter of 2018; and (c) $0.2 million increase in interest income; partially mitigated by a: (i) $1.3 million increase in interest expenses and finance cost; and (ii) $0.7 million increase in direct vessel expenses.

The reserve for estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures for the nine month period ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was $8.0 million and $7.4 million, respectively (please see “Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures—4. Reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to Net Cash from Operating Activities” in Exhibit 3).

Navios Midstream generated an Operating Surplus for the nine month period ended September 30, 2018 of $26.2 million. Operating Surplus is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors to assist in evaluating a partnership’s ability to make quarterly cash distributions (please see “Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures—4. Reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to Net Cash from Operating Activities” in Exhibit 3).

(1)   Available days for the fleet represent total calendar days the vessels were in Navios Midstream’s possession for the relevant period after subtracting off-hire days associated with scheduled repairs, drydock or special surveys. 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 is 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 Midstream’s vessels were available for revenue generating available days, 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, drydock or special surveys.
(4)   TCE rates are defined as voyage and time charter revenues less voyage expenses during a period divided by the number of available days during the period. The TCE 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.

1. EBITDA

EBITDA is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure and should not be used in isolation or as substitution for Navios Midstream’s results calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”).

EBITDA represents net (loss)/income before interest and finance costs, before depreciation and amortization and before income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA in this document represents EBITDA excluding loss on sale of vessel, as described under “Financial Highlights”. Adjusted net (loss)/ income and Adjusted (losses)/ earnings per unit (basic and diluted) represent Net (loss)/ income and (losses)/ earnings per unit (basic and diluted), excluding certain item as described under “Financial Highlights”. We use Adjusted EBITDA as liquidity measure and reconcile EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by/ (used in) operating activities, the most comparable U.S. GAAP liquidity measure. EBITDA in this document is calculated as follows: net cash provided by/(used in) 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) amortization of deferred finance costs and other related expenses; and (v) gain/ loss on sale of assets. Navios Midstream believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are each the basis upon which liquidity can be assessed and present useful information to investors regarding Navios Midstream’s ability to service and/or incur indebtedness, pay capital expenditures, meet working capital requirements and pay dividends. Navios Midstream 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. 

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 Midstream’s 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 Midstream’s 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.

2. Operating Surplus

Operating Surplus represents net income adjusted for depreciation and amortization expense, non-cash interest expense and estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures. Maintenance and replacement capital expenditures are those capital expenditures required to maintain over the long term the operating capacity of, or the revenue generated by, Navios Midstream’s capital assets.

Operating Surplus is a quantitative measure used in the publicly-traded partnership investment community to assist in evaluating a partnership’s ability to make quarterly cash distributions. Operating Surplus is not required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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 U.S. GAAP or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.

3. Available Cash   

Available Cash generally means for each fiscal quarter, all cash on hand at the end of the quarter:

  • less the amount of cash reserves established by the Board of Directors to:
  • provide for the proper conduct of Navios Midstream’s business (including reserve for maintenance and replacement capital expenditures);
  • comply with applicable law, any of Navios Midstream’s debt instruments, or other agreements; or
  • provide funds for distributions to the unitholders and to the general partner for any one or more of the next four quarters;
  • plus all cash on hand on the date of determination of available cash for the quarter resulting from working capital borrowings made after the end of the quarter. Working capital borrowings are generally borrowings that are made under any revolving credit or similar agreement used solely for working capital purposes or to pay distributions to partners.

Available Cash is a quantitative measure used in the publicly-traded partnership investment community to assist in evaluating a partnership’s ability to make quarterly cash distributions. Available cash is not required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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 U.S. GAAP or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.
