Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. ("Navios Holdings" or "the Company") (NYSE: NM), a global, vertically integrated seaborne shipping and logistics company, today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased with our results for the first quarter of 2014, for which we reported net income of $2.0 million and EBITDA of $59.8 million. We are also pleased to again announce a dividend of $0.06 for the first quarter of 2014, representing a yield of 2.9%."

Angeliki Frangou continued, "By establishing and developing in house technical and commercial management, we have been able to achieve a significant competitive advantage through economies of scale. We self-manage our vessels because we believe that by doing so, we operate more efficiently, to the material benefit of our stakeholders. Today, we believe we have world-class talent attending to our business in every department in our firm. This means better decisions are being made regarding the daily operation and maintenance of our vessels, more informed decisions are being made about dry-docking and chartering of our vessels and better procedures are being used in operating our company. Navios Holdings currently has almost 200 professionals attending to its business globally, excluding our crew of about 3,000. As we get larger, Navios Holdings also enjoys purchasing power with suppliers. We have been able to share these efficiencies and savings with the Navios Group."

In May 2014, Navios Holdings became the sole shareholder of Navios Asia LLC ("Navios Asia"), owner of the N Amalthia and the N Bonanza vessels, by acquiring the remaining 49% noncontrolling interest for a total cash consideration of $10.9 million ($10.0 million net).

In May 2014, Navios Asia entered into an agreement to purchase one Japanese new building 180,600 dwt Capesize vessel. The vessel's acquisition price is $54.0 million and is scheduled for delivery in June of 2014. The vessel will be financed with debt and cash from operations.
