Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation ("Navios Acquisition") (NYSE: NNA), an owner and operator of tanker vessels, reported its financial results today for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Navios Acquisition stated, "I am pleased with our results as we grew revenue and adjusted EBITDA by 38.0% and 28.4%, respectively. As a result, we again declared a quarterly dividend of $0.05 per share. Given our current share price, stockholders are receiving a yield of about 5.4%."

"We have grown our company to be one of the top five largest publicly listed tanker owners among our US and European peers, with one of the youngest on-the-water fleets. In fact, so far this year, we grew this fleet by four vessels and expect six additional vessels to be delivered in 2014. We are proud of our responsible growth strategy, as we have been able to expand our fleet while protecting our balance sheet and stakeholders."

Angeliki Frangou continued, "We also added further visibility into our operating cost as we have extended the management structure with Navios Holdings for another five years and fixed management fees for two years. In a market generally pressured by rising costs, we have been able to reduce VLCC opex rates by 5% while keeping rates for product and chemical tankers constant. In fact, our daily opex is 17% below industry average and our G&A expenses are well below our peers. We believe this demonstrates the group's economies of scale and the group's ability to share these economies with its members, ultimately to the unique benefit of our stakeholders."

Three month periods ended March 31, 2014 and 2013

Revenue for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 increased by $16.8 million or 38.0% to $61.0 million, as compared to $44.2 million for the same period in 2013. The increase was mainly attributable to the acquisitions of the Nave Atropos in April 2013, the Nave Titan and the Nave Equinox in June 2013, the Nave Capella, the Nave Pulsar and the Nave Universe in July 2013, the Nave Celeste in August 2013, the Nave Constellation, the Nave Alderamin, the Nave Dorado and the Bougainville in September 2013, the Nave Lucida in October 2013, the Nave Galactic and the Nave Quasar in February 2014 and the Nave Buena Suerte in March 2014. As a result of the above, available days of the fleet increased to 3,079 days for the three month period ended March 31, 2014, as compared to 1,832 days for the three month period ended March 31, 2013. The increase in revenue was partially mitigated by the decrease in time charter equivalent ("TCE") to $19,544 for the three month period ended March 31, 2014, from $23,725 for the three month period ended March 31, 2013.

Excluding the impact of $10.7 million non-cash impairment loss recognized for one of our VLCCs sold in May 2014, a $1.0 million non-cash impairment loss related to a receivable, a $1.2 million non-cash fair value loss related to other assets, and a $1.4 million for non-cash share based compensation expense, Adjusted EBITDA for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 increased by $7.9 million to $35.9 million from $28.0 million in the three month period ended March 31, 2013. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was due to: (a) a $16.8 million increase in revenue; and (b) a $0.5 million increase in Other income/ (expense), partially mitigated by a: (i) $0.1 million increase in time charter expenses; (ii) $1.1 million increase in general and administrative expenses; and (iii) $8.2 million increase in management fees.

Net loss for the three month period ended March 31, 2014, amounting to $12.8 million, was adversely affected by a $10.7 million non-cash impairment loss recognized for one of our VLCCs sold in May 2014, a $1.0 million non-cash impairment loss related to a receivable, a $1.2 million non-cash fair value loss related to other assets, and a $1.4 million non-cash share based compensation expense. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net income for the three month period ended March 31, 2014, amounted to $1.5 million, compared to a $0.7 million Net income for the three month period ended March 31, 2013. The increase in Adjusted Net income by approximately $0.8 million was due to an increase of $7.9 million in Adjusted EBITDA mitigated by a; (a) $3.3 million increase in depreciation and amortization due to the acquisitions of the vessels described above; (b) $3.8 million increase in interest expense and finance cost net; and (c) $0.1 million decrease in interest income.

(1) Available days for the fleet represent total calendar days the vessels
    were in Navios Acquisition's possession for the relevant period after
    subtracting off-hire days associated with scheduled repairs, drydockings
    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: 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: Fleet utilization is the percentage of time that
    Navios Acquisition's 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 and minimizing the amount of
    days that its vessels are off hire for reasons other than scheduled
    repairs, drydockings or special surveys.

(4) Time Charter Equivalent Rate: Time Charter Equivalent Rate is defined as
    voyage and time charter revenues less voyage expenses during a period
    divided by the number of available days during the period. The Time
    Charter Equivalent 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.

Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

ADJUSTED EBITDA
Adjusted EBITDA represents net income/ (loss) plus interest expenses and finance cost plus depreciation and amortization and income taxes adjusted for change in fair value of other assets, impairment losses and non-cash share- based compensation expense.

Adjusted EBITDA is presented because Navios Acquisition believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a basis upon which liquidity can be assessed and present useful information to investors regarding Navios Acquisition's ability to service and/or incur indebtedness, pay capital expenditures, meet working capital requirements and pay dividends. 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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. 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.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
