Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation Announces Charters for Four LR1 Product Tankers; Fleet Coverage of 98.7% for 2012 and 75.7% for 2013.

 

Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation ("Navios Acquisition") (NYSE: NNA), an owner and operator of tanker vessels, announced today that it has chartered out four newbuilding LR1 product tankers.

 

The four LR1 vessels -- Nave Cassiopeia, Nave Cetus, Nave Rigel and Nave Atropos -- have been chartered out to a high-quality counterparty for one year at a rate of $11,850 net per day plus 50% profit sharing. Navios Acquisition anticipates that these four vessels together will generate a total base EBITDA of approximately $6.3 million (assuming operating expense approximating current operating costs and 360 revenue days per year).

With these charters, we have coverage of 98.7% of our fleet for 2012 and 75.7% in 2013, with the unchartered vessels scheduled for delivery in 2013 and 2014." Angeliki Frangou continued, "As a result of our fleet coverage, our stakeholders can be confident in our outlook, and our shareholders should enjoy a continued dividend, currently returning 8% annually."
