Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation, an owner and operator of tanker vessels, announced today that it has agreed to acquire two 50,000 dwt MR2 product tankers built in 2009. The vessels are employed under long-term charter-out contracts with a remaining term of three years. The rates are $22,490 net per day for the first year and $21,503 net per day for the remaining charter out period. Delivery is expected in July 2011.

The two vessels will generate approximately $11.2 million annual EBITDA and $34.2 million of aggregate EBITDA assuming operating expense approximating current operating costs and 360 revenue days per year. The aggregate purchase price for the two new vessels is approximately $84.8 million, to be paid in cash.
New Financing Navios Acquisition is expected to finance the acquisition with cash on its balance sheet plus $55.1 million of debt with a margin of 325 bps and an amortization profile of approximately 11 years. Other terms and conditions are in line with its existing credit facilities.
Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and CEO commented, "We continue to see opportunity in the product tanker market. We are pleased to add significant cash flow by acquiring quality vessels at a good price. As a result of this acquisition and the recent delivery of the VLCC Shinyo Kieran, we will have 13 vessels in the water and expect to receive two more LR1 product tankers in the fourth quarter of this year."
