Operating and Financial Review and Prospects

The following is a discussion of the financial condition and results of operations for the three month periods ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 of Navios Maritime Containers L.P. (referred to herein as “we”, “us”, “Company” or “Navios Containers”). All of the financial statements have been stated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). You should read this section together with the consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes included in Navios Containers’ 2018 Annual Report filed on Form 20-F with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 8, 2019.

This Report contains forward-looking statements (as defined in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) concerning future events including Navios Containers’ 2019 cash flow generation, future contracted revenues, future distributions and its ability to have any distributions going forward, opportunities to reinvest cash accretively in a fleet renewal program or otherwise, potential capital gains, our ability to take advantage of dislocation in the market and Navios Containers’ growth strategy and measures to implement such strategy; including expected vessel acquisitions and entering into further time charters. Words such as “may”, “expects”, “intends”, “plans”, “believes”, “anticipates”, “hopes”, “estimates”, and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements include comments regarding expected revenue and time charters. These forward-looking statements are based on the information available to, and the expectations and assumptions deemed reasonable by Navios Containers at the time these statements were made. Although Navios Containers believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, no assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been correct. These statements involve risks and are based upon a number of assumptions and estimates that are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond the control of Navios Containers. Actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include, but are not limited to, uncertainty relating to global trade, our continued ability to enter into long-term time charters, our ability to maximize the use of our vessels, expected demand in the container shipping sector in general and the demand for our containerships in particular, fluctuations in charter rates for containerships, the aging of our fleet and resultant increases in operating costs, the loss of any customer or charter or vessel, the financial condition of our customers, changes in the availability and costs of funding due to conditions in the bank market, capital markets and other factors, increases in costs and expenses, including but not limited to: crew, insurance, provisions, port expenses, lube oil, bunkers, repairs, maintenance and general and administrative expenses, the expected cost of, and our ability to comply with, governmental regulations and maritime self-regulatory organization standards, as well as standard regulations imposed by our charterers applicable to our business, general domestic and international political conditions, competitive factors in the market in which Navios Containers operates; risks associated with operations outside the United States; and other factors listed from time to time in Navios Containers’ filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including its reports on Form 20- F and reports on Form 6- K. Navios Containers expressly disclaims any obligations or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect any change in Navios Containers’ expectations with respect thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any statement is based. Navios Containers makes no prediction or statement about the performance of its common units.

Recent Developments

Fleet Developments

On April 23, 2019, Navios Containers took delivery of a 2011-built 10,000 TEU containership. The vessel was acquired from an unrelated third party for a purchase price of $52.5 million. This containership is employed on time charter with a net rate of $26,325 per day until November 2020 and $27,300 per day until October 2021. The acquisition of the containership was financed with: (i) a $31.1 million loan from a commercial bank maturing in July 2023 and bearing interest at LIBOR plus 325 bps per annum; (ii) a $15.0 million credit by the seller for a period until January 2020 at a rate of 5.0% per annum; and (iii) available cash.

In February 2019, the Company announced the exercise of an option to acquire a 2011-built 10,000 TEU containership from an unrelated third party for a purchase price of $52.5 million. This containership is employed on time charter with a net rate of $26,663 until July 2019, $26,325 per day until July 2021 and $27,300 per day until June 2022 and is expected to be delivered in the third quarter of 2019.

In connection with the acquisition of the two 2011-built 10,000 TEU containerships, we entered into a $20.0 million seller’s credit agreement through, January 2020 at a rate of 5.0% per annum.

Overview

We are a growth-oriented international owner and operator of containerships. We were formed in April 2017 by Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. (“Navios Holdings”), which owns, operates or manages one of the largest shipping fleets by capacity, to take advantage of acquisition and chartering opportunities in the container shipping sector. We generate our revenues by chartering our vessels to leading liner companies pursuant to fixed-rate time charters.

As of May 13, 2019, Navios Containers had a total of 34,603,100 common units outstanding. Navios Maritime Partners L.P. (“Navios Partners”) held 11,592,276 common units representing 33.5% of the equity and Navios Holdings held 1,263,276 common units representing 3.7% of the equity of Navios Containers. Navios Maritime Containers GP LLC, a Marshall Islands limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of Navios Holdings, has been admitted as our general partner and holds a non-economic interest that does not provide the holder with any rights to profits or losses of, or distributions by, the partnership.

Our Fleet

As of May 6, 2019, Navios Containers owned a fleet of 30 vessels, including one containership which we expect to take delivery of in the third quarter of 2019, totaling 152,821 TEU and with an average age of 10.7 years. Our fleet includes three 3,450 TEU containerships, 22 containerships between 4,250 TEU and 4,730 TEU and five containerships between 8,200 TEU and 10,000 TEU. As of May 6, 2019, we had contracts covering 55.7% and 15.6% of available days for the remainder of 2019 and for 2020, respectively (excluding index-linked charters).

Our Charters

We provide seaborne shipping services under short-term, medium-term and long-term time charters with customers that we believe are creditworthy. For the three month period ended March 31, 2019, two customers, NOL Liner PTE Ltd and Hapag-Lloyd AG represented 36.0% and 12.2% of our total revenues, respectively. For the comparative period in 2018 two customers, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines and APL Bermuda Ltd represented 40.6% and 32.6% of our total revenues, respectively. No other customer accounted for 10% or more of total revenues for the periods presented.

Our revenues are driven by the number of vessels in the fleet, the number of days during which the vessels operate and our charter hire rates, which, in turn, are affected by a number of factors, including:

 

   

the duration of the charters;

 

   

the level of spot and long-term market rates at the time of charters;

 

   

decisions relating to vessel acquisitions and disposals;

 

   

the amount of time spent positioning vessels;

 

   

the amount of time that vessels spend undergoing repairs and upgrades in drydock;

 

   

the age, condition and specifications of the vessels; and

 

   

the aggregate level of supply and demand in the container shipping industry.

Time charters are available for varying periods, ranging from a single trip (spot charter) to long-term which may be many years. In general, a long-term time charter assures the vessel owner of a consistent stream of revenue. Operating the vessel in the spot market affords the owner greater spot market opportunity, which may result in high rates when vessels are in high demand or low rates when vessel availability exceeds demand. We intend to employ our vessels on short-term, medium-term and long-term time charters. Vessel charter rates are affected by world economics, international events, weather conditions, strikes, governmental policies, supply and demand and many other factors that might be beyond our control. Please read “Risk Factors” in our 2018 Annual Report on Form 20-F for a discussion of certain risks inherent in our business.

We could lose a customer or the benefits of a charter if:

 

   

the customer fails to make charter payments because of its financial inability, disagreements with us or otherwise;

 

   

the customer exercises certain rights to terminate the charter of the vessel;

 

   

the customer terminates the charter because we fail to deliver the vessel within a fixed period of time, the vessel is lost or damaged beyond repair, there are serious deficiencies in the vessel or prolonged periods of off-hire, or we default under the charter; or

 

   

a prolonged force majeure event affecting the customer, including damage to or destruction of relevant production facilities, war or political unrest prevents us from performing services for that customer.

Under some of our time charters, either party may terminate the charter contract in the event of war in specified countries or in locations that would significantly disrupt the free trade of the vessel. Some of the time charters covering our vessels require us to return to the charterer, upon the loss of the vessel, all advances paid by the charterer but not earned by us.

Trends and Factors Affecting Our Future Results of Operations

We believe the principal factors that will affect our future results of operations are the economic, regulatory, political and governmental conditions that affect the shipping industry generally and that affect conditions in countries and markets in which our vessels engage in business. Please read “Risk Factors” in our 2018 Annual Report on Form 20-F for a discussion of certain risks inherent in our business.

The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements of Navios Containers are unaudited, but, in the opinion of management, contain all adjustments necessary to present a fair statement of results, in all material respects, of Navios Containers’ condensed consolidated financial position as of March 31, 2019 and the condensed consolidated results of operations for the three month periods ended March 31, 2019 and 2018. The footnotes are condensed as permitted by the requirements for interim financial statements and, accordingly, do not include information and disclosures required under U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. All such adjustments are deemed to be of a normal, recurring nature. The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes included in Navios Containers’ Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2018.

(1)

Available days: Available days for the fleet are total calendar days the vessels were in Navios Containers’ possession for the relevant period after subtracting off-hire days associated with scheduled repairs or repairs under guarantee, vessel upgrades, 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: 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 Containers’ 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)

TCE rate: TCE per day is defined as revenues less time charter and voyage expenses during a relevant period divided by the number of available days during the period.

Period over Period Comparisons

For the Three Month Period ended March 31, 2019 compared to the Three Month Period ended March 31, 2018

Revenue: Revenue for the three month period ended March 31, 2019 was $31.8 million, as compared to $29.9 million for the comparative period in 2018. The $1.9 million increase was mainly due to the increase in the number of vessels operating during the three months ended March 31, 2019 and the resulting increase in the number of available days from 1,907 for the three month period ended March 31, 2018 to 2,471 for the three month period ended March 31, 2019, partially offset by the decrease in time charter rates reflecting primarily the expiration of a number of our legacy time charter contracts. TCE per day declined from $15,259 for the three month period ended March 31, 2018 to $12,217 for the same period during 2019, primarily as a result of the expiration of these contracts between the two periods.

Time charter and voyage expenses: Time charter and voyage expenses for the three month period ended March 31, 2019 increased by $0.8 million, to $1.6 million, as compared to $0.8 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2018, mainly relating to an increase in fuel expenses and brokers’ commissions as a result of the increase in Company’s fleet.

Direct vessel expenses: Direct vessel expenses for the three month period ended March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2018 amounted to $0.8 million and $0.2 million, respectively and related to the amortization of drydock and special survey costs of certain vessels in our fleet.

Management fees: Management fees for the three month period March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2018 were $15.7 million and $11.6 million, respectively. The $4.1 million increase was attributable to the increase in the number of operating vessels from 22 as of March 31, 2018 to 28 as of March 31, 2019 and the resulting increase of available days from 1,907 for the three month period ended March 31, 2018 to 2,471 for the three month period ended March 31, 2019. Pursuant to the Management Agreement, the Manager a wholly-owned subsidiary of Navios Holdings (the “Manager”), provides commercial and technical management services to our vessels for a daily fixed fee of $6,100 for containerships from 3,000 TEU up to 5,500 TEU and $7,400 for containerships from 8,000 TEU up to 10,000 TEU, payable on the last day of each month, covering our vessels’ operating expenses, other than certain extraordinary fees and costs.

General and administrative expenses: General and administrative expenses increased by $0.8 million to $2.5 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2019 from $1.7 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2018. Pursuant to the Administrative Services Agreement, the Manager also provides administrative services to us. The Manager is reimbursed for reasonable costs and expenses incurred in connection with the provision of these services. The $0.8 million increase was attributable to a: (i) $0.4 million increase in expense charged by the Manager mainly due to the growth in our fleet; and (ii) $0.4 million increase in legal and professional fees.

Depreciation and amortization: Depreciation and amortization was $7.1 million and $10.6 million for the three month periods ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The decrease of $3.5 million was primarily due to a: (i) $4.8 million decrease in the amortization of the intangible assets resulting from the expiration of five charter-out contracts between the two periods; and (ii)

$1.3 million increase in vessel depreciation due to the increased number of vessels in Navios Containers’ fleet. Vessel depreciation for containerships is calculated using an estimated useful life of 30 years from the date the vessel was originally delivered from the shipyard. The amortizable value of favorable leases is amortized over the remaining life of the lease term and the amortization expense is included in the statement of income in the depreciation and amortization line item. The weighted average remaining useful life for time charters with favorable terms is 1.1 years.

Interest expense and finance cost, net: Interest expense and finance cost, net for the three month period ended March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2018 was $4.1 million and $1.9 million, respectively. The increase of $2.2 million was mainly attributable to a: (i) $1.9 million increase in the interest expense, which resulted from an increase in the weighted average outstanding debt from $119.8 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2018, to $221.7 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2019; and (ii) $0.3 million increase in the amortization of the deferred finance fees. The weighted average interest rate under our credit facilities for the three month period ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 was 5.92% and 5.43%, respectively.

Other income/(expense), net: Other income, net for the three month period ended March 31, 2019 amounted to $0.1 million. Other expense, net for the three month period ended March 31, 2018 was $0.1 million attributable to miscellaneous expenses.

Net income: Net income for the three month period ended March 31, 2019 was $0.1 million, as compared to $3.0 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2018. The $2.9 million decrease in net income was due to the factors discussed above.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our primary short-term liquidity needs are to fund general working capital requirements, cash reserve requirements including those under our credit facilities and debt service, while our long-term liquidity needs primarily relate to capital expenditures, relating to vessel acquisitions, maintenance capital expenditures (relating primarily to drydocking expenditures) and debt repayment.

We anticipate that our primary sources of funds for our short-term liquidity needs will be cash flows from operations and borrowings. On March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, our current assets totaled $21.5 million and $25.1 million, respectively, while current liabilities totaled $41.6 million and $47.4 million, respectively, resulting in a negative working capital position of $20.1 million and $22.3 million, respectively. As of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, our current liabilities included $34.8 million and $35.3 million, respectively, related to installments due under our credit facilities and the financial liability under the sale and leaseback transactions. Navios Containers’ cash forecast indicates that it will generate sufficient cash to make the required principal and interest payments on its indebtedness, provide for the normal working capital requirements of the business through twelve months commencing from May 15, 2019. We expect to be in a position to meet our loan obligations in part through our contracted revenue of $154.1 million as of May 6, 2019. Generally, our long-term sources of funds derive from cash from operations, long-term bank borrowings and other debt or equity financings to fund acquisitions and expansion and investment capital expenditures, including opportunities we may pursue under the Omnibus Agreement. We cannot assure you that we will be able to raise the size of our credit facilities or obtaining additional funds on favorable terms.

Cash deposits and cash equivalents in excess of amounts covered by government provided insurance are exposed to loss in the event of non-performance by financial institutions. We maintain cash deposits and equivalents in excess of government provided insurance limits. We also minimize exposure to credit risk by dealing with a diversified group of major financial institutions.

Borrowings

Navios Containers’ long-term borrowings are reflected in our balance sheet as “Long-term debt, net of current portion,” “Long-term financial liability, net of current portion”, “Current portion of long-term debt, net” and “Financial liability short term, net”. As of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, total borrowings, net amounted to $217.1 million and $219.0 million, respectively. The current portion of long-term debt, net amounted to $27.0 million and $27.6 million as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively. Long-term financial liability, net of current portion amounted to $76.1 and $78.1 million as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 and the short term portion as of the same date was $7.8 million and $7.7 million, respectively.

Net cash used in operating activities increased by $7.4 million to below $0.1 million outflow for the three month period ended March 31, 2019, as compared to $7.4 million inflow for the three month ended March 31, 2018. In determining net cash (used in)/provided by operating activities, net income is adjusted for the effects of certain non-cash items as discussed below.

Net income decreased by $2.9 million to $0.1 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2019, from $3.0 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2018. The aggregate adjustment to reconcile net income to net cash (used in)/provided by operating activities was an $8.5 million positive adjustment for the three month period ended March 31, 2019, which consisted of the following adjustments: $7.1 million of depreciation and amortization, $0.8 million of amortization of deferred drydock and special survey costs and $0.6 million of amortization and write-off of deferred financing costs.

The net cash outflow resulting from the change in operating assets, liabilities and payments for drydock and special survey costs of $8.6 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2019 resulted from a $3.3 million decrease in the balance due to related parties, a $2.7 million payment for drydock and special survey costs, a $1.6 million decrease in deferred income and cash received in advance, a $0.9 million decrease in accrued expenses, a $0.5 million increase in inventories, a $0.4 million increase in prepaid expenses and a $0.1 million increase in other current assets. These were partially offset by a $0.5 million increase in accounts payable and a $0.4 million decrease in accounts receivable.

The aggregate adjustment to reconcile net income to net cash provided by operating activities was an $11.1 million positive adjustment for the three month period ended March 31, 2018, which consisted of the following adjustments: $10.6 million of depreciation and amortization, $0.2 million of amortization of deferred drydock and special survey costs and $0.3 million of amortization of deferred financing costs.

The net cash outflow resulting from the change in operating assets, liabilities and payments for drydock and special survey costs of $6.7 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2018 resulted from a $7.5 million increase in balance due from related parties (current and non-current), a $1.5 million increase in prepaid expenses and a $0.3 million increase in inventories. These were partially offset by a $0.8 million increase accounts payable, a $0.7 million increase in accrued expenses, a $0.7 million increase in deferred income and cash received in advance and $0.4 million decrease in accounts receivable.

Cash used in investing activities for the three month period ended March 31, 2019 as compared to the cash used in investing activities for the three month period ended March 31, 2018.

EBITDA: EBITDA represents net income before interest and finance costs, before depreciation and amortization and before income taxes. We use EBITDA as liquidity measure and reconcile 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 in operating assets; (ii) net (increase) in operating liabilities; (iii) net interest cost; (iv) amortization of deferred financing costs; and (v) payments for drydock and special survey costs. We believe that EBITDA is a basis upon which liquidity can be assessed and represents useful information to investors regarding our ability to service and/or incur indebtedness, pay capital expenditures, meet working capital requirements and pay distributions. We also believe that EBITDA is 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 has limitations as an analytical tool, and therefore, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are: (i) EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; (ii) EBITDA does 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 does not reflect any cash requirements for such capital expenditures. Because of these limitations, among others, EBITDA should not be considered as a principal indicator of our performance. Furthermore, our calculation of EBITDA may not be comparable to that reported by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.

EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2019 decreased by $3.7 million to $12.0 million as compared to $15.7 million for the same period in 2018. The decrease in EBITDA was primarily due to a: (i) $4.1 million increase in management fees mainly due to the increase of the available days from 1,907 days for the three month period ended March 31, 2018, to 2,471 days for the three month period ended March 31, 2019; (ii) $0.8 million increase in general and administrative expenses also mainly related to the growth in our fleet; and (iii) $0.8 million increase in time charter and voyage expenses. This overall resulting decrease of $5.7 million was partially offset by $1.9 million increase in revenue described above reflecting the growth in the number of vessels operating in the fleet during the period and a $0.1 million increase in other income/(expense) net.

Capital Expenditures

Navios Containers finances its capital expenditures with cash flow from operations, equity raisings, long term bank borrowings and other debt raisings. Capital expenditures for the three month periods ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 amounted to $1.8 million and $12.8 million, respectively. For the three month period ended March 31, 2019, expansion capital expenditures of $1.8 million related to the capitalized expenses of our fleet. For the three month period ended March 31, 2018, expansion capital expenditures of $12.8 million related to the acquisition of one containership and capitalized expenses.

Maintenance for our vessels and expenses related to drydocking expenses are reimbursed at cost by us to our Manager under the Management Agreement. Pursuant to a Management Agreement, dated June 7, 2017, as amended on November 23, 2017, April 23, 2018 and June 1, 2018 (the “Management Agreement”), the Manager provides commercial and technical management services to our vessels. In May 2019, we extended the existing fixed rates for technical and commercial management services under our management agreement until the end of 2019. The fee for the ship management services provided by the Manager is a daily fixed fee of $6,100 for containerships from 3,000 TEU up to 5,500 TEU and $7,400 for containerships from 8,000 TEU up to 10,000 TEU until December 2019. This fixed daily fee covers all of our vessels operating expenses, other than certain extraordinary fees and costs and excluding drydocking expenses which are reimbursed at cost by us.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have, a current or future material effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

Related Party Transactions

Management fees: Pursuant to the Management Agreement, the Manager provides commercial and technical management services to the Company’s vessels. The term of this agreement is for an initial period of five years with an automatic extension for five years periods thereafter unless a notice for termination is received by either party. In May 2019, we extended the existing fixed rates for technical and commercial management services under our management agreement until the end of 2019.

Balance due from/to related parties: Balance due to Navios Holdings as of March 31, 2019 amounted to $0.8 million (December 31, 2018: $4.1 million), and the Long-term receivable from Navios Holdings amounted to $7.9 million (December 31, 2018: $7.9 million). The balances mainly consisted of administrative fees, drydocking, extraordinary fees and costs related to regulatory requirements including ballast water treatment system, other expenses, as well as management fees, in accordance with the Management Agreement.

Omnibus Agreement: On June 7, 2017, the Company entered into an omnibus agreement with Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation (“Navios Acquisition”), Navios Holdings and Navios Partners pursuant to which Navios Acquisition, Navios Holdings, Navios Partners and their controlled affiliates generally have granted a right of first refusal over any containerships to be sold or acquired in the future. The omnibus agreement contains significant exceptions that will allow Navios Acquisition, Navios Holdings and Navios Partners or any of their controlled affiliates to compete with the Company under specified circumstances.

Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risks

Foreign Exchange Risk

Our functional and reporting currency is the U.S. dollar. We engage in worldwide commerce with a variety of entities. Although our operations may expose us to certain levels of foreign currency risk, our transactions are predominantly U.S. dollars denominated. Transactions in currencies other than U.S. dollars are translated at the exchange rate in effect at the date of each transaction. Differences in exchange rates during the period between the date a transaction denominated in a foreign currency is consummated and the date on which it is either settled or translated, are recognized.

Interest Rate Risk

Borrowings under our credit facilities bear interest at rate based on a premium over U.S. $ LIBOR. Therefore, we are exposed to the risk that our interest expense may increase if interest rates rise. For the three month period ended March 31, 2019, we paid interest on our outstanding debt at a weighted average interest rate of 5.92%. A 1% increase in LIBOR would have increased our interest expense for the three month period ended March 31, 2019 by $0.6 million. For the three month period ended March 31, 2018, we paid interest on our outstanding debt at a weighted average interest rate of 5.43%. A 1% increase in LIBOR would have increased our interest expense for the three month period ended March 31, 2018 by $0.3 million.

Concentration of Credit Risk

Financial instruments, which potentially subject us to significant concentrations of credit risk, consist principally of trade accounts receivable. We closely monitor our exposure to customers for credit risk. We have policies in place to ensure that we trade with customers with an appropriate credit history.

For the three month period ended March 31, 2019, our customers representing 10% or more of total revenues were NOL Liner Pte Ltd and Hapag-Lloyd AG which accounted for approximately 36.0% and 12.2% of our total revenues, respectively. For the comparative period in 2018 two customers, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines and APL Bermuda Ltd represented 40.6% and 32.6% of our total revenues, respectively. No other customer accounted for 10% or more of total revenues for the periods presented.

Inflation

Inflation has had a minimal impact on vessel operating expenses, drydocking expenses and general and administrative expenses. Our management does not consider inflation to be a significant risk to direct expenses in the current and foreseeable economic environment.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

The Company’s recent accounting pronouncements are included in the accompanying notes to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this report.

Table of Contents

Critical Accounting Policies

Our financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates in the application of our accounting policies based on the best assumptions, judgments and opinions of management. Following is a discussion of the accounting policies that involve a higher degree of judgment and the methods of their application that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities, revenues and expenses and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of our financial statements. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

Critical accounting policies are those that reflect significant judgments or uncertainties, and potentially result in materially different results under different assumptions and conditions. Other than as described below, all significant accounting policies are as described in Note 2 to the Notes to the consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2018 filed with the SEC on March 8, 2019.

NAVIOS MARITIME CONTAINERS L.P.

CONDENSED NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

(Expressed in thousands of U.S. dollars except unit and per unit data)

NOTE 1: DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

Navios Maritime Containers Inc. (“Navios Containers Inc.”) was incorporated in the Republic of the Marshall Islands on April 28, 2017.

Conversion into Limited Partnership

On November 30, 2018, Navios Containers Inc. was converted into a limited partnership, Navios Maritime Containers L.P. (“Navios Containers L.P.” or the “Company”). The Company is a growth vehicle dedicated to the container sector of the maritime industry.

The Company converted the issued common shares to common units at the conversion ratio of one common share of Navios Maritime Containers Inc. for each common unit of Navios Containers L.P. In connection with the conversion, Navios Maritime Containers GP LLC, a Marshall Islands limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. (“Navios Holdings”), has been admitted as Company’s general partner and holds a non-economic interest that does not provide the holder with any rights to profits or losses of, or distributions by, the partnership. The financial statements of the Company have been presented giving retroactive effect to the conversion described above which was treated as a reorganization made within the context of the Company’s above-mentioned transactions.

As of March 31, 2019, Navios Containers L.P. had a total of 34,603,100 common units outstanding. Navios Maritime Partners L.P. (“Navios Partners”) held 11,592,276 common units representing 33.5% of the equity and Navios Holdings held 1,263,276 common units representing 3.7% of the equity of Navios Containers L.P.

The common units of the Company commenced trading on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on December 10, 2018 under the ticker symbol “NMCI”.

The operations of the Company are managed by a wholly-owned subsidiary of Navios Holdings (the “Manager”), from its offices in Piraeus, Greece, Singapore and Monaco.

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES:

 

(a)

Basis of Presentation: The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited, but, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments for a fair statement of Company’s consolidated financial positions, statement of changes in partner’s capital, statements of income and cash flows for the periods presented. The condensed balance sheet data as of December 31, 2018, was derived from audited financial statements, and as permitted by the requirements for interim financial statements, does not include information and disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for complete financial statements. The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year. The footnotes are condensed as permitted by the requirements for interim financial statements and accordingly, do not include information and disclosures required under U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. All such adjustments are deemed to be of a normal recurring nature. These interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements and notes included in Navios Containers’ Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2018 filed on Form 20-F with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Based on internal forecasts and projections that take into account reasonably possible changes in the Company’s trading performance, management believes that the Company has adequate financial resources to continue in operation and meet its financial commitments, including but not limited to capital expenditures and debt service obligations, for a period of at least twelve months from the date of issuance of these interim condensed consolidated financial statements. Accordingly, the Company continues to adopt the going concern basis in preparing its financial statements.

 

(b)

Principles of Consolidation: The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Navios Containers L.P., a Marshall Islands limited partnership, and its subsidiaries that are all 100% owned. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in the condensed consolidated financial statements.

Subsidiaries: Subsidiaries are those entities in which the Company has an interest of more than one half of the voting rights or otherwise has power to govern the financial and operating policies. The acquisition method of accounting is used to account for the acquisition of subsidiaries. The cost of an acquisition is measured as the fair value of the assets given up, shares issued or liabilities undertaken at the date of acquisition. The excess of the cost of acquisition over the fair value of the net assets acquired and liabilities assumed is recorded as goodwill.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements:

In August 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2018-13, “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework-Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement”. This update modifies the disclosure requirements on fair value measurements. ASU 2018-13 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and earlier adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact that adopting this new accounting guidance will have on its disclosures to the consolidated financial statements.

In June 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-13, “Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments.” This standard requires entities to measure all expected credit losses of financial assets held at a reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts in order to record credit losses in a more timely matter. ASU 2016-13 also amends the accounting for credit losses on available-for-sale debt securities and purchased financial assets with credit deterioration. The standard is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019, although early adoption is permitted for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018.

In November 2018, FASB issued ASU2018-19 “Codification Improvements to topic 326, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses”. The amendments in this update clarify that operating lease receivables are not within the scope of ASC 326-20 and should instead be accounted for under the new leasing standard, ASC 842.

In addition, in April 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-04, “Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses, Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, and Topic 825 Financial Instruments”, the amendments of which clarify the modification of accounting for available for sale debt securities excluding applicable accrued interest, which must be individually assessed for credit losses when fair value is less than the amortized cost basis. The effective date and transition requirements for the amendments in this Update are the same as the effective dates and transition requirements in Update 2016-13, as amended by this Update.

The Company is currently assessing the impact that adopting this new accounting guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.

The majority of credit facilities and sale and leaseback transaction also require the vessels to comply with the ISM Code and ISPS Code and to maintain safety management certificates and documents of compliance at all times. Additionally, the facilities require compliance with certain financial covenants including maintenance covenants, such as loan-to-value ratio, minimum liquidity, net worth and ratio of liabilities to assets as defined in the credit facilities.

NOTE 9: FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instrument:

Cash and cash equivalents: The carrying amounts reported in the consolidated balance sheets for interest bearing deposits approximate their fair value because of the short maturity of these investments.

Restricted cash: The carrying amounts reported in the condensed consolidated balance sheets for interest bearing deposits approximate their fair value because of the short maturity of these investments.

Balance due from related parties, non-current: The carrying amount of due from related parties non-current reported in the condensed consolidated balance sheet approximates its fair value.

Long-term debt: The book value has been adjusted to reflect the net presentation of deferred finance costs. The outstanding balance of the floating rate loans continues to approximate its fair value, excluding the effect of any deferred finance costs.

Financial liability: The book value has been adjusted to reflect the net presentation of deferred finance costs. The outstanding balance of the financial liability continues to approximate its fair value, excluding the effect of any deferred finance costs.

The estimated fair values of the Company’s financial instruments are as follows:

Fair Value Measurements

The estimated fair value of our financial instruments that are not measured at fair value on a recurring basis, categorized based upon the fair value hierarchy, are as follows:

Level I: Inputs are unadjusted, quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets that the Company has the ability to access. Valuation of these items does not entail a significant amount of judgment.

Level II: Inputs other than quoted prices included in Level I that are observable for the asset or liability through corroboration with market data at the measurement date.

Level III: Inputs that are unobservable.

NOTE 10: COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

The Company is involved in various disputes and arbitration proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. Provisions are recognized in the financial statements for all such proceedings where the Company believes that a liability may be probable, and for which the amounts are reasonably estimable, based upon facts known at the date the financial statements were prepared. While the ultimate disposition of these actions cannot be predicted with certainty, management does not believe the outcome, individually or in aggregate, of such actions will have a material effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In January 2019, the Company announced the exercise of an option to acquire a 2011-built 10,000 TEU containership from an unrelated third party for a purchase price of $52,500. The Company took delivery of the vessel on April 23, 2019. See also Notes 8 and 15.

In May 2019, the Company extended the existing fixed rates for technical and commercial management services under our management agreement until the end of 2019. The fee for the ship management services provided by the Manager is a daily fee of US $6.1 for containerships from 3,000 TEU up to 5,500 TEU and $7.4 for containerships from 8,000 TEU up to 10,000 TEU.

The Manager is reimbursed for reasonable costs and expenses incurred in connection with the provision of these services. The term of this agreement is for an initial period of five years with an automatic extension for five years periods thereafter unless a notice for termination is received by either party.

The omnibus agreement contains significant exceptions that will allow Navios Acquisition, Navios Holdings and Navios Partners or any of their controlled affiliates to compete with the Company under specified circumstances.

NOTE 12: SEGMENT INFORMATION

The Company reports financial information and evaluates its operations by charter revenues. The Company does not use discrete financial information to evaluate operating results for each type of charter or by sector. As a result, management reviews operating results solely by revenue per day and operating results of the fleet and thus the Company has determined that it operates under one reportable segment.    

Revenue by Geographic Region

Vessels operate on a worldwide basis and are not restricted to specific locations. Accordingly, it is not possible to allocate the assets of these operations to specific countries.

The following table sets out operating revenue by geographic region for the Company’s reportable segment. Revenue is allocated on the basis of the geographic region in which the customer is located. Revenues from specific geographic regions which contribute over 10% of total revenue are disclosed separately.

NOTE 13: EARNINGS PER UNIT

The unit and per unit data included in the accompanying consolidated financial statements have been restated for the periods presented to reflect the Company’s conversion to a limited partnership, as discussed in Note 1.

Earnings per unit is calculated by dividing net income available to common unit holders by the weighted average number of common units of Navios Containers L.P. outstanding during the period.

The general partner interest is a non-economic interest, meaning the Company’s general partner, Navios Maritime Containers GP LLC, does not participate in the Company’s distributions, profits or losses by reason of owning its general partner interest.

The calculations of the basic and diluted earnings per unit are presented below.
