Operating and Financial Review and Prospects

The following is a discussion of the financial condition and results of operations for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 of Navios Maritime Partners L.P. (referred to herein as “we”, “us”, “Company” or “Navios Partners”). 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 Partners’ 2022 Annual Report filed on Form 20-F with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 24, 2023.

This Report contains and will contain 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, TCE rates (as defined herein), and Navios Partners’ expected cash flow generation, future contracted revenues, future distributions and its ability to make distributions going forward, opportunities to reinvest cash accretively in a fleet renewal program or otherwise, potential capital gains, its ability to take advantage of dislocation in the market and Navios Partners’ growth strategy and measures to implement such strategy; including expected vessel acquisitions and entering into further time charters and Navios Partners’ ability to refinance its debt on attractive terms, or at all. 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. These forward-looking statements are based on the information available to, and the expectations and assumptions deemed reasonable by Navios Partners at the time these statements were made. Although Navios Partners 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 Partners. 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, risks relating to: global and regional economic and political conditions including global economic activity, demand for seaborne transportation of the products we ship, the ability and willingness of charterers to fulfill their obligations to us and prevailing charter rates, the economic condition of the markets in which we operate, shipyards performing scrubber installations, construction of newbuilding vessels, drydocking and repairs, changing vessel crews and availability of financing, potential disruption of shipping routes due to accidents, wars, sanctions, diseases, pandemics, political events, piracy or acts by terrorists; uncertainty relating to global trade, including prices of seaborne commodities and continuing issues related to seaborne volume and ton miles, our continued ability to enter into long- term time charters, our ability to maximize the use of our vessels, expected demand in the dry and liquid cargo shipping sectors in general and the demand for our drybulk, containerships and tanker vessels in particular, fluctuations in charter rates for drybulk, containerships and tanker vessels, the aging of our fleet and resultant increases in operations 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, fluctuation in interest rates and foreign exchange rates, 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 Partners operates; risks associated with operations outside the United States; and other factors listed from time to time in Navios Partners’ filings with the SEC, including its Form 20-F and Form 6-K. Navios Partners 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 Partners’ expectations with respect thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any statement is based. Navios Partners makes no prediction or statement about the performance of its common units.

Recent Developments

In November 2023, Navios Partners took delivery of the Zim Sparrow, a 2023-built 5,300 TEU containership.

In October 2023, Navios Partners agreed to charter-out to its affiliate Navios South American Logistics Inc. the Navios Vega, following her modification to a transhipper vessel, for a period of five years at a rate of $25,800 net per day. This transaction was negotiated with, and unanimously approved by, the conflicts committee of Navios Partners.

In October 2023, Navios Partners sold the Navios Beaufiks, a 2004-built Capesize vessel of 180,310 dwt, to an unrelated third party, for a net sales price of $12.6 million.

Overview

We are an international owner and operator of dry cargo and tanker vessels, formed on August 7, 2007 under the laws of the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Olympos Maritime Ltd. is our general partner (the “General Partner”).

As of November 17, 2023, there were 30,184,388 outstanding common units and 622,296 general partnership units. Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. (“Navios Holdings”) currently owns an approximately 10.3% ownership interest in Navios Partners and the General Partner currently owns an approximately 2.0% ownership interest in Navios Partners based on all outstanding common units and general partnership units.

Fleet

Navios Partners’ fleet consists of 80 drybulk vessels, 47 containerships and 53 tanker vessels, including 16 newbuilding tanker vessels (ten Aframax/LR2 and six MR2 Product Tanker chartered-in vessels under bareboat contracts), that are expected to be delivered through 2027 and 11 newbuilding containerships (nine 5,300 TEU and two 7,700 TEU), that are expected to be delivered through 2025.

We generate revenues by charging our customers for the use of our vessels to transport their dry cargo commodities, containers, crude oil and/or refined petroleum products. In general, the vessels in our fleet are chartered-out under time charters, which range in length from one to twelve years at inception. From time to time, we operate vessels in the spot market until the vessels have been chartered out under short-term, medium and long-term charters.

Our Charters

We provide seaborne shipping services under short, medium, and long-term time charters, bareboat charters and voyage charters with customers that we believe are creditworthy. For the nine month period ended September 30, 2023, no customer accounted for 10.0% or more of our total revenues. For the nine month period ended September 30, 2022, Swissmarine Marine Pte. Ltd. Singapore (“Swissmarine”) represented approximately 10.5% of our total revenues. No other customers accounted for 10.0% or more of our total revenues for any of 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 in dry dock undergoing repairs and upgrades;

 

the age, condition and specifications of the vessels;

 

the aggregate level of supply and demand in the liquid, dry and containerized cargo shipping industry;

 

economic conditions, such as the impact of inflationary cost pressures, decreased consumer discretionary spending, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, increasing interest rates, and the possibility of recession or financial market instability;

 

armed conflicts, such as the Israel Gaza war and Russian/Ukrainian conflicts; and

 

the outbreak of global epidemics or pandemics such as coronavirus (COVID-19).

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 global 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 operate our vessels in the medium to long-term charter market. 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 the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our 2022 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 the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our 2022 Annual Report on Form 20-F for a discussion of certain risks inherent in our business.

(1)

Available days for the fleet represent total calendar days the vessels were in Navios Partners’ possession for the relevant period after subtracting off-hire days associated with scheduled repairs, dry dockings or special surveys and ballast days relating to voyages. The shipping industry uses available days to measure the number of days in a relevant period during which a vessel is capable of generating revenues.

 

(2)

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 is the percentage of time that Navios Partners’ 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 efficiency in finding employment for vessels and minimizing the amount of days that its vessels are off-hire for reasons other than scheduled repairs, dry dockings or special surveys.

 

(4)

Time Charter Equivalent rate (“TCE rate”) per day is defined as voyage, time charter revenues and charter-out revenues under bareboat contracts (grossed up by currently applicable fixed vessel operating expenses) less voyage expenses during a period divided by the number of available days during the period. The TCE rate per day is a customary 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.

Period over Period Comparisons

For the Three Month Period ended September 30, 2023 compared to the Three Month Period ended September 30, 2022

Time charter and voyage revenues: Time charter and voyage revenues of Navios Partners for the three month period ended September 30, 2023 slightly increased by $0.8 million, or 0.2%, to $323.2 million, as compared to $322.4 million for the same period in 2022. The increase in revenue was mainly attributable to the increase in the available days of our fleet, partially mitigated by the decrease in TCE rate. For the three month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the time charter and voyage revenues were negatively affected by $9.7 million and $13.6 million, respectively, relating to the straight-line effect of the containership and tanker charters with de-escalating rates. For the three month period ended September 30, 2023, the TCE rate decreased by 7.3% to $22,052 per day, as compared to $23,781 per day for the same period in 2022. The available days of the fleet increased by 6.7% to 13,759 days for the three month period ended September 30, 2023, as compared to 12,897 days for the same period in 2022 mainly due to the acquisition of the 36-vessel drybulk fleet from Navios Holdings and the deliveries of newbuilding and secondhand vessels, partially mitigated by the sale of vessels.

Time charter and voyage expenses: Time charter and voyage expenses for the three month period ended September 30, 2023 increased by $4.5 million to $39.9 million, as compared to $35.4 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2022. The increase was mainly attributable to a: (i) $3.1 million increase in bunkers expenses arising from the increased days of freight voyages in the third quarter of 2023; (ii) $1.0 million increase in other voyage expenses; (iii) $0.5 million increase in port expenses; and (iv) $0.3 million increase in bareboat and charter-in hire expense of the tanker and drybulk fleet primarily due to the expansion of our fleet. The above was partially mitigated by a $0.4 million decrease in brokers’ commissions.

Direct vessel expenses: Direct vessel expenses for the three month period ended September 30, 2023, increased by $0.5 million to $15.9 million, as compared to $15.4 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2022. The increase of $0.5 million was mainly attributable to the amortization of the deferred drydock and special survey costs due to the expansion of our fleet.

Vessel operating expenses: Vessel operating expenses for the three month period ended September 30, 2023, increased by approximately $4.0 million to $82.9 million, as compared to $78.9 million for the same period in 2022. The increase was mainly due to the expansion of our fleet and the adjustment of the fixed daily fee in accordance with the management agreements (the “Management Agreements”), partially mitigated by the sale of vessels.

General and administrative expenses: General and administrative expenses increased by $3.9 million to $19.5 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2023, as compared to $15.6 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2022. The increase was mainly due to a: (i) $3.1 million increase in administrative expenses paid to the Manager (as defined herein) as per the administrative services agreement (the “Administrative Services Agreement”), mainly due to the expansion of our fleet, partially mitigated by the sale of vessels; and (ii) $0.8 million increase in professional and legal fees, as well as audit fees and other administrative expenses.

Depreciation and amortization of intangible assets: Depreciation and amortization of intangible assets amounted to $54.5 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2023, as compared to $59.3 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2022. The decrease of $4.8 million was mainly attributable to a: (i) $12.9 million decrease in amortization of favorable lease terms; and (ii) $3.9 million decrease in the depreciation due to the sale of 21 of our vessels during the second half of 2022 and the nine month period ended September 30, 2023. The above decrease was partially mitigated by a: (i) $11.4 million increase in the depreciation expense due to the delivery of the 36-vessel drybulk fleet and the delivery of 11 vessels during the second half of 2022 and the nine months period ended September 30, 2023; and (ii) $0.6 million increase in the depreciation expense due to vessel improvements. Depreciation of vessels is calculated using an estimated useful life of 25 years for drybulk and tanker vessels and 30 years for containerships, respectively, from the date the vessel was originally delivered from the shipyard.

Amortization of unfavorable lease terms: Amortization of unfavorable lease terms amounted to $3.5 million and $24.8 million for the three month periods ended September 30, 2023 and September 30, 2022, respectively, related to the fair value of the time charters with unfavorable lease terms as determined at the acquisition date of Navios Maritime Containers L.P. (“Navios Containers”) and at the date of obtaining control of Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation (“Navios Acquisition”).

Gain on sale of vessels, net: Gain on sale of vessels, net amounted to $7.2 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2023, relating to one of our vessels amounted to $7.4 million, partially mitigated by an impairment loss of one of our vessels amounted to $0.2 million. Gain on sale of vessels, net amounted to $143.8 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2022, relating to the sale of two containerships.

The increase in revenue was mainly attributable to the increase in the available days of our fleet. For the nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the time charter and voyage revenues were negatively affected by $30.2 million and $30.1 million, respectively, relating to the straight-line effect of the containership and tanker charters with de-escalating rates.

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.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

We anticipate that our primary sources of funds for our short-term liquidity needs will be cash flows from our equity offerings, operations, proceeds from assets’ sales, long-term bank borrowings and other debt raisings. In addition to distributions on our units, 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 expansion and investment capital expenditures and other maintenance capital expenditures and debt repayment. As of September 30, 2023, Navios Partners’ current assets totaled $383.2 million, while current liabilities totaled $461.7 million, resulting in a negative working capital position of $78.5 million, primarily related to balloon payments totaling $76.9 million due under its financial liabilities and finance lease liabilities in the next 12 months. Navios Partners’ cash forecast indicates that it will generate sufficient cash through its contracted revenue of $3.4 billion as of November 14, 2023 and cash proceeds from the sale of vessels (see Note 4 – Vessels, net to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this Report) to make the required principal and interest payments on its indebtedness, provide for the normal working capital requirements of the business for a period of at least 12 months from the date of issuance of our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

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. We cannot assure you that we will be able to secure adequate financing or to obtain additional funds on favorable terms to meet our liquidity needs.

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. Navios Partners does maintain cash deposits and cash equivalents in excess of government provided insurance limits.

Navios Partners also minimizes exposure to credit risk by dealing with a diversified group of major financial institutions.

The following table presents cash flow information derived from the unaudited condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows of Navios Partners for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the nine month period ended September 30, 2023 as compared to the net cash provided by operating activities for the nine month period ended September 30, 2022

Net cash provided by operating activities decreased by $17.7 million to $348.6 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2023, as compared to $366.3 million for the same period in 2022. In determining net cash provided by operating activities, net income is adjusted for the effects of certain non-cash items as discussed below.

The aggregate adjustments to reconcile net income to net cash provided by operating activities was $184.2 million of non-cash positive net adjustments for the nine month period ended September 30, 2023, which consisted mainly of the following adjustments: (i) $162.8 million depreciation and amortization of intangible assets; (ii) $45.2 million non-cash amortization of deferred revenue and straight-line effect of the containership and tanker charters with de-escalating rates; (iii) $30.4 million amortization of deferred dry dock and special survey costs; (iv) $7.8 million amortization of operating lease assets/ liabilities; and (v) $5.2 million amortization and write-off of deferred finance costs and discount. These adjustments were partially mitigated by: (i) $50.8 million gain from sale of vessels, net; and (ii) $16.4 million amortization of unfavorable lease terms.

The net cash outflow resulting from the change in operating assets and liabilities of $136.9 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2023 resulted from a: (i) $104.7 million decrease in amounts due to related parties; (ii) $66.1 million in payments for dry dock and special survey costs; (iii) $9.7 million decrease in accounts payable; and (iv) $6.3 million decrease in deferred revenue. This was partially mitigated by a: (i) $36.7 million decrease in accounts receivable; (ii) $7.1 million decrease in prepaid expenses and other current assets; and (iii) $6.1 million increase in accrued expenses.

The aggregate adjustments to reconcile net income to net cash provided by operating activities was $2.2 million of non-cash negative net adjustments for the nine month period ended September 30, 2022, which consisted mainly of the following adjustments: (i) $143.8 million gain from sale of vessels; and (ii) $64.2 million amortization of unfavorable lease terms. These adjustments were partially mitigated by: (i) $143.8 million depreciation and amortization of intangible assets; (ii) $36.2 million non-cash amortization of deferred revenue and straight-line effect of the containerships charters with de-escalating rates; (iii) $20.5 million amortization of deferred dry dock and special survey costs; (iv) $3.9 million amortization and write-off of deferred finance costs and discount; (v) $1.3 million amortization of operating lease assets/ liabilities; and (vi) $0.1 million stock-based compensation.

The net cash outflow resulting from the change in operating assets and liabilities of $92.5 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2022 resulted from: (i) $48.8 million in payments for dry dock and special survey costs; (ii) a $26.2 million increase in prepaid expenses and other current assets; (iii) a $21.6 million increase in accounts receivable; (iv) a $6.8 million increase in amounts due from related parties; and (v) a $2.4 million decrease in amounts due to related parties. This was partially mitigated by a: (i) $7.8 million increase in accounts payable; (ii) $4.3 million increase in deferred revenue; and (iii) $1.2 million increase in accrued expenses.

This was partially mitigated by $237.4 million of proceeds related to the sale of 13 vessels.

Net cash used in investing activities of $265.7 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2022 was mainly due to: (i) $395.4 million related to vessels’ acquisitions and additions; and (ii) $95.5 million related to deposits for the acquisition/ option to acquire vessels and capitalized expenses. This was partially mitigated by: (i) $215.3 million of proceeds related to the sale of two vessels; and (ii) $9.9 million cash acquired through the delivery of the 36-vessel drybulk fleet.

Net cash used in financing activities for the nine month period ended September 30, 2023 as compared to net cash used in financing activities for the nine month period ended September 30, 2022

This was partially mitigated by $543.8 million of proceeds from the new credit facilities and sale and leaseback agreements.

Net cash used in financing activities of $159.7 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2022 was mainly due to: (i) $497.6 million repayments of loans and financial liabilities; (ii) $4.6 million payments in total for cash distributions; and (iii) $2.7 million payments of deferred finance costs related to the new credit facilities. This was partially mitigated by $345.2 million proceeds from new credit facilities.

(1) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA represents net income before interest and finance costs, depreciation and amortization (including intangible accelerated amortization) and income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA excluding certain items, as described in the table above. Navios Partners uses Adjusted EBITDA as a liquidity measure and reconciles EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by operating activities, the most comparable U.S. GAAP liquidity measure. EBITDA in this document 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 decrease/(increase) in operating liabilities; (iii) net interest cost; (iv) amortization and write-off of deferred finance costs and discount; (v) gain on sale of assets, net; (vi) non-cash amortization of deferred revenue and straight line effect of the containerships and tankers charters with de-escalating rates; (vii) stock-based compensation expense; and (viii) amortization of operating lease assets/ liabilities. Navios Partners believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are each the basis upon which liquidity can be assessed and presents useful information to investors regarding Navios Partners’ ability to service and/or incur indebtedness, pay capital expenditures, meet working capital requirements and make cash distributions. Navios Partners also believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used: (i) by 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.

Table of Contents

Each of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the analysis of Navios Partners’ results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are: (i) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; and (ii) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such capital expenditures. Because of these limitations, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a principal indicator of Navios Partners’ performance. Furthermore, our calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to that reported by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.

EBITDA for the three month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 was affected by the items described in the table above. Excluding these items, Adjusted EBITDA decreased by $4.0 million to $173.7 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2023, as compared to $177.7 million for the same period in 2022. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to a: (i) $4.5 million increase in time charter and voyage expenses, mainly due to the increase in bunker expenses arising from the increased days of freight voyages in the third quarter of 2023; (ii) $4.0 million increase in vessel operating expenses in accordance with our Management Agreements, mainly due to the expansion of our fleet; and (iii) $3.9 million increase in general and administrative expenses mainly due to the expansion of our fleet in accordance with our Administrative Services Agreement, partially mitigated by a: (i) $4.1 million decrease in other expenses, net; (ii) $3.5 million decrease in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock, special survey costs and other capitalized items); and (iii) $0.8 million increase in time charter and voyage revenues.

EBITDA for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 was affected by the items described in the table above. Excluding these items, Adjusted EBITDA increased by $53.2 million to $520.5 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2023, as compared to $467.3 million for the same period in 2022. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to a: (i) $139.9 million increase in time charter and voyage revenues; and (ii) $1.3 million decrease in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock, special survey costs and other capitalized items), that were partially mitigated by a: (i) $47.3 million increase in time charter and voyage expenses, mainly due to the increase in bunker expenses arising from the increased days of freight voyages in the first nine months of 2023 and bareboat and charter-in hire expense of the tanker and dry bulk fleet; (ii) $22.5 million increase in vessel operating expenses in accordance with our Management Agreements, mainly due to the expansion of our fleet; (iii) $15.9 million increase in general and administrative expenses mainly due to the expansion of our fleet in accordance with our Administrative Services Agreement; and (iv) $2.3 million increase in other expenses, net.

(2) Operating Surplus

Navios Partners generated Operating Surplus for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 of $84.9 million and of $249.3 million, respectively. Operating Surplus for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2022 was $94.8 million and $240.9 million, respectively. Operating Surplus is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors to assist in evaluating a partnership’s ability to make quarterly cash distributions (See “Reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to Net Cash from Operating Activities, EBITDA and Operating Surplus” contained herein).

Operating Surplus represents net income adjusted for depreciation and amortization expense, non-cash interest expense, non-cash interest income, estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures and one-off items. Maintenance and replacement capital expenditures are those capital expenditures required to maintain over the long term the operating capacity of, or the revenue generated by, Navios Partners’ capital assets.

 

22


Table of Contents

Operating Surplus is a quantitative measure used in the publicly-traded partnership investment community to assist in evaluating a partnership’s ability to make quarterly cash distributions. Operating Surplus is not required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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.

Capital Expenditures

Navios Partners finances its capital expenditures with cash flow from operations, equity raisings, long-term bank borrowings and other debt raisings. Capital expenditures for each of the nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 amounted to $309.8 million and $490.8 million, respectively.

Maintenance for our vessels and expenses related to drydocking expenses are reimbursed at cost by Navios Partners to Navios Shipmanagement Inc., (the “Manager”) and Navios Tankers Management Inc. (“Tankers Manager” and together with the Manager, the “Managers”) under the Management Agreements.

Maintenance and Replacement Capital Expenditures Reserve

The reserves for estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 were $56.1 million and $169.1 million, respectively. We estimate that our annual replacement reserve for the year ending December 31, 2023 will be approximately $224.4 million, for replacing our vessels at the end of their useful lives. The reserves for estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2022 were $60.0 million and $178.1 million, respectively.

The amount for estimated replacement capital expenditures attributable to future vessel replacement was based on the following assumptions: (i) current market price to purchase a five year old vessel of similar size and specifications; (ii) a 25-year useful life for drybulk and tanker vessels and a 30-year useful life for containerships; and (iii) a relative net investment rate.

The amount for estimated maintenance capital expenditures attributable to future vessel drydocking and special survey was based on certain assumptions including the remaining useful life of the owned vessels of our fleet, market costs of drydocking and special survey and a relative net investment rate.

Our Board of Directors, with the approval of the Conflicts Committee, may determine that one or more of our assumptions should be revised, which could cause our Board of Directors to increase or decrease the amount of estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures. The actual cost of replacing the vessels in our fleet will depend on a number of factors, including prevailing market conditions, charter hire rates and the availability and cost of financing at the time of replacement. We may elect to finance some or all of our maintenance and replacement capital expenditures through the issuance of additional common units, which could be dilutive to existing unitholders.

Table of Contents

Limitations on Cash Distributions and Our Ability to Change Our Cash Distribution Policy

There is no guarantee that unitholders will receive quarterly distributions from us on the common units on any quarter.

Our ability to make distributions to our unitholders depends on the performance of our subsidiaries and their ability to distribute funds to us. The ability of our subsidiaries to make distributions to us may be restricted by, among other things, the provisions of existing and future indebtedness, applicable partnership and limited liability company laws and other laws and regulations.

See Note 13 – Cash distributions and earnings per unit to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this Report.

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. dollar 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

Interest rates have increased significantly as central banks in Europe, United States and other developed countries raise interest rates. The eventual implications of tighter monetary policy, and potentially higher long-term interest rates may drive a higher cost of capital for our Company.

Borrowings under our credit facilities and financial liabilities bear interest at a rate based on a premium over Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”), which replaced U.S. LIBOR during the period. Therefore, we are exposed to the risk that our interest expense may increase if interest rates rise. For the nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, we paid interest on our outstanding debt at a weighted average interest rate of 7.25% and 4.59%, respectively. A 1% increase in SOFR would have increased our interest expense for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 by $10.3 million and $9.1 million, respectively.

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 nine month period ended September 30, 2023, no customer accounted for 10.0% or more of our total revenues. For the nine month period ended September 30, 2022, Swissmarine represented approximately 10.5% of our total revenues. No other customers accounted for 10.0% or more of our total revenues for any of the periods presented.

If we lose a charter, we may be unable to re-deploy the related vessel on terms as favorable to us due to the long-term nature of most charters and the cyclical nature of the industry or we may be forced to charter the vessel on the spot market at then market rates which may be less favorable than the charter that has been terminated. If we are unable to re-deploy a vessel for which the charter has been terminated, we will not receive any revenues from that vessel, but we may be required to pay expenses necessary to maintain the vessel in proper operating condition. If we lose a vessel, any replacement or newbuilding would not generate revenues during its construction acquisition period, and we may be unable to charter any replacement vessel on terms as favorable to us as those of the terminated charter.

 

24


Table of Contents

Even if we successfully charter our vessels in the future, our charterers may go bankrupt or fail to perform their obligations under the charter agreements, they may delay payments or suspend payments altogether, they may terminate the charter agreements prior to the agreed-upon expiration date or they may attempt to renegotiate the terms of the charters. The permanent loss of a customer, time charter or vessel, or a decline in payments under our charters, could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition and our ability to make cash distributions in the event we are unable to replace such customer, time charter or vessel. For further details, please read “Risk Factors” in our 2022 Annual Report filed on Form 20-F with the SEC on March 24, 2023.

NAVIOS MARITIME PARTNERS L.P.

UNAUDITED NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Expressed in thousands of U.S. Dollars except unit data)

NOTE 1 – DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

Navios Maritime Partners L.P. (“Navios Partners” or the “Company”), is an international owner and operator of dry cargo and tanker vessels, formed on August 7, 2007 under the laws of the Republic of the Marshall Islands. The Company’s general partner is Olympos Maritime Ltd. (the “General Partner”) (see Note 12 – Transactions with related parties and affiliates).

Navios Partners is engaged in the seaborne transportation services of a wide range of liquid and dry cargo commodities including crude oil, refined petroleum, chemicals, iron ore, coal, grain, fertilizer and also containers, chartering its vessels under short, medium and longer-term charters. The operations of Navios Partners are managed by Navios Shipmanagement Inc., (the “Manager”) and Navios Tankers Management Inc. (“Tankers Manager” and together with the Manager, the “Managers”) which are entities affiliated with the Company’s Chairwoman and Chief Executive Officer (see Note 12 – Transactions with related parties and affiliates).

As of September 30, 2023, there were 30,184,388 outstanding common units and 622,296 general partnership units. As of September 30, 2023, Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. (“Navios Holdings”) owned an approximately 10.3% ownership interest in Navios Partners and the General Partner held an approximately 2.0% ownership interest in Navios Partners based on all outstanding common units and general partnership units.

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 Navios Partners’ consolidated balance sheets, statement of partners’ capital, statements of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. 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 United States generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for complete financial statements. All such adjustments are deemed to be of a normal recurring nature. These interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements and notes included in Navios Partners’ Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2022 filed on Form 20-F on March 24, 2023 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

Based on internal forecasts and projections that take into account reasonably possible changes in Company’s trading performance, management believes that the Company has adequate financial resources, including cash from sale of vessels, (see Note 4 – Vessels, net) 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 12 months from the date of issuance of these condensed consolidated financial statements. Accordingly, the Company continues to adopt the going concern basis in preparing its financial statements.

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 the United States, the European Union, the United Kingdom and other countries have announced sanctions against Russia, and may impose wider sanctions and take other actions in the future. To date, no apparent consequences have been identified on the Company’s business. It should be noted that since the Company employs Ukrainian and Russian seafarers, it may face problems in relation to their employment, repatriation, salary payments and be subject to claims in this regard. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is possible that these tensions might eventually have an adverse impact on our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

(Expressed in thousands of U.S. Dollars except unit data)

 

Interest rates have increased significantly as central banks in Europe, United States and other developed countries raise interest rates. The eventual implications of tighter monetary policy and potentially higher long-term interest rates may drive a higher cost of capital for the Company.

(b) Principles of consolidation: The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements include Navios Partners’ wholly owned subsidiaries incorporated under the laws of the Republic of Marshall Islands, Liberia, Malta, Delaware, Cayman Islands, Hong Kong, British Virgin Islands, Luxemburg and Belgium from their dates of incorporation or from the date of acquiring control or, for chartered-in vessels, from the dates charter-in agreements were in effect. All significant inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated in Navios Partners’ consolidated financial statements.

Navios Partners also consolidates entities that are determined to be variable interest entities (“VIE”) as defined in the accounting guidance, if it determines that it is the primary beneficiary. A VIE is defined as a legal entity where either (i) equity interest holders as a group lack the characteristics of a controlling financial interest, including decision making ability and an interest in the entity’s residual risks and rewards, (ii) the equity holders have not provided sufficient equity investment to permit the entity to finance its activities without additional subordinated financial support, or (iii) the voting rights of some investors are not proportional to their obligations to absorb the expected losses of the entity, their rights to receive the expected residual returns of the entity, or both and substantially all of the entity’s activities either involve or are conducted on behalf of an investor that has disproportionately few voting rights.

Subsidiaries: Subsidiaries are those entities in which Navios Partners has an interest of more than one half of the voting rights or otherwise has power to govern the financial and operating policies of the entity.

A discussion of the Company’s significant accounting policies can be found in Note 2 to the Company’s consolidated financial statements included in the Annual Report filed on Form 20-F on March 24, 2023 with the SEC for the year ended December 31, 2022. There have been no material changes to these policies in the nine months ended September 30, 2023, apart from those discussed below.

As of September 30, 2023, the Company has elected one of the optional expedients provided in the ASU 2020-04 Reference Rate Reform and its update that allows entities with contract modifications within the scope of Topic 470, for which the terms that are modified solely relate to directly replacing, or having the potential to replace a reference rate with another interest rate index, to account for the modification that meets the scope of paragraphs 848-20-15-2 through 15-3 as if the modification was not substantial. That is, the original contract and the new contract shall be accounted for as if they were not substantially different from one another, and the modification shall not be accounted for in the same manner as a debt extinguishment. As of September 30, 2023, the Company has entered into certain amendments in the existing loan agreements in order to replace the reference rate from Libor to Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”). The Company will continue to evaluate the potential impact of adopting the standards on its consolidated financial statements.

(c) Revenue and Expense Recognition:

Revenue from time chartering

Revenues from time chartering and bareboat chartering of vessels are accounted for as operating leases and are thus recognized on a straight line basis as the average lease revenue over the rental periods of such charter agreements, as service is performed. A time charter involves placing a vessel at the charterers’ disposal for a period of time during which the charterer uses the vessel in return for the payment of a specified daily hire rate. Short period charters for less than three months are referred to as spot-charters. Charters extending three months to a year are generally referred to as medium-term charters. All other charters are considered long-term. The Company has determined to recognize lease revenue as a combined single lease component for all time charters (operating leases) as the related lease component and non-lease components will have the same timing and pattern of the revenue recognition of the combined single lease component. The performance obligations in a time charter contract are satisfied over term of the contract beginning when the vessel is delivered to the charterer until it is redelivered back to the Company. Under time charters, operating costs such as for crews, maintenance and insurance are typically paid by the owner of the vessel. Revenue from time chartering and bareboat chartering of vessels amounted to $287,912 and $287,017 for the three month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. Revenue from time chartering and bareboat chartering of vessels amounted to $856,273 and $763,623 for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

Revenue from voyage contracts

Under a voyage charter, a vessel is provided for the transportation of specific goods between specific ports in return for payment of an agreed upon freight per ton of cargo. Upon adoption of ASC 606, the Company recognizes revenue ratably from port of loading to when the charterer’s cargo is discharged as well as defer costs that meet the definition of “costs to fulfill a contract” and relate directly to the contract. Revenue from voyage contracts amounted to $25,420 and $12,793 for the three month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. Revenue from voyage contracts amounted to $80,472 and $30,199 for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

Pooling arrangements

For vessels operating in pooling arrangements, the Company earns a portion of total revenues generated by the pool, net of expenses incurred by the pool. The amount allocated to each pool participant vessel, including the Company’s vessels, is determined in accordance with an agreed-upon formula, which is determined by points awarded to each vessel in the pool based on the vessel’s age, design and other performance characteristics. Revenue under pooling arrangements is accounted for as variable rate operating leases on the accrual basis and is recognized when an agreement with the pool exists, price is fixed, service is provided and the collectability is reasonably assured. The allocation of such net revenue may be subject to future adjustments by the pool however, such changes are not expected to be material. The Company recognizes net pool revenue on a monthly and quarterly basis, when the vessel has participated in a pool during the period and the amount of pool revenue can be estimated reliably based on the pool report. Revenue from vessels operating in pooling arrangements amounted to $9,818 and $21,943 for the three month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. Revenue from vessels operating in pooling arrangements amounted to $42,815 and $44,335 for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

Revenue from profit-sharing

Profit-sharing revenues are calculated at an agreed percentage of the excess of the charterer’s average daily income (calculated on a quarterly or semi-annual basis) over an agreed amount and accounted for on an accrual basis based on provisional amounts and for those contracts that provisional accruals cannot be made due to the nature of the profit sharing elements, these are accounted for on the actual cash settlement or when such revenue becomes determinable. Profit-sharing revenue amounted to $26 and $634 for the three month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. Profit-sharing revenue amounted to $76 and $1,508 for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

(Expressed in thousands of U.S. Dollars except unit data)

 

Revenues are recorded net of address commissions. Address commissions represent a discount provided directly to the charterers based on a fixed percentage of the agreed upon charter or freight rate. Since address commissions represent a discount (sales incentive) on services rendered by the Company and no identifiable benefit is received in exchange for the consideration provided to the charterer, these commissions are presented as a reduction of revenue.

Finance Lease Liabilities

On July 29, 2022, Navios Partners took delivery of the Navios Amber, a 2015-built Panamax vessel of 80,994 dwt, for a remaining one-year charter-in agreement. The charter-in provides for purchase options with de-escalating purchase prices. The Company has performed an assessment considering the lease classification criteria under ASC 842 and concluded that the arrangement is a finance lease. Consequently, the Company has recognized a finance lease liability based on the net present value of the remaining charter-in payments including the purchase option to acquire the vessel at the end of the lease period, discounted by the Company’s incremental borrowing rate of approximately 6%. During the first half of 2023, the Company declared its option to extend the charter period for one year commencing in May 2023. Under the ASC 842, the extension of the charter period is considered as a lease modification. Consequently, the Company reallocated the remaining consideration in the contract and remeasured the finance lease liability by using the updated Company’s incremental borrowing rate of approximately 6%. The finance lease liability recognized at the date of modification was increased by $1,620. The corresponding right-of-use asset under finance lease was adjusted upon remeasurement of the finance lease liability (see Note 4 – Vessels, net). As of September 30, 2023, the outstanding balance was $33,031 and is repayable in one year in consecutive monthly installments up to $298 each, with a purchase option of $30,690.

On March 29, 2023, Navios Partners took delivery of the Navios Altair, a 2023-built Capesize vessel of 182,115 dwt under a 15-year bareboat charter-in agreement. The bareboat charter-in provides for purchase options with de-escalating purchase prices starting on the end of the fourth year. The Company has performed an assessment considering the lease classification criteria under ASC 842 and concluded that the agreement is a finance lease. Consequently, the Company has recognized a finance lease liability based on the net present value of the charter-in payments including the purchase option to acquire the vessel at the end of the lease period, discounted by the Company’s incremental borrowing rate of approximately 6.5%. As of September 30, 2023, the outstanding balance was $40,440 and is repayable in 15 years in consecutive monthly installments up to $298 each, with a purchase option of $9,500, assuming that the option will be exercised at the end of the agreement.

On April 27, 2023, Navios Partners took delivery of the Navios Sakura, a 2023-built Capesize vessel of 182,169 dwt, under a 15-year bareboat charter-in agreement. The bareboat charter-in provides for purchase options with de-escalating purchase prices starting at the end of the fourth year. The Company has performed an assessment considering the lease classification criteria under ASC 842 and concluded that the agreement is a finance lease. Consequently, the Company has recognized a finance lease liability based on the net present value of the charter-in payments including the purchase option to acquire the vessel at the end of the lease period, discounted by the Company’s incremental borrowing rate of approximately 5.5%. As of September 30, 2023, the outstanding balance was $45,205 and is repayable in 15 years in consecutive monthly installments up to $334 each, with a purchase option of $9,500, assuming that the option will be exercised at the end of the agreement.

On June 21, 2023, Navios Partners took delivery of the Navios Amethyst, a 2023-built Capesize vessel of 182,212 dwt, under a 15-year bareboat charter-in agreement. The bareboat charter-in provides for purchase options with de-escalating purchase prices starting on the end of the fourth year. The Company has performed an assessment considering the lease classification criteria under ASC 842 and concluded that the agreement is a finance lease. Consequently, the Company has recognized a finance lease liability based on the net present value of the charter-in payments including the purchase option to acquire the vessel at the end of the lease period, discounted by the Company’s incremental borrowing rate of approximately 5.4%. As of September 30, 2023, the outstanding balance was $59,637 and is repayable in 15 years in consecutive monthly installments up to $401 each, with a purchase option of $10,500, assuming that the option will be exercised at the end of the agreement.

NOTE 8 – REPURCHASES AND ISSUANCE OF UNITS

In July 2022, the Board of Directors of Navios Partners authorized a common unit repurchase program for up to $100,000 of the Company’s common units. Common unit repurchases will be made from time to time for cash in open market transactions at prevailing market prices or in privately negotiated transactions. The timing and amount of repurchases under the program will be determined by Navios Partners’ management based upon market conditions and financial and other considerations, including working capital and planned or anticipated growth opportunities. As of September 30, 2023, no repurchases of common units had been made. The program does not require any minimum repurchase or any specific number of common units and may be suspended or reinstated at any time in the Company’s discretion and without notice. The Board of Directors will review the program periodically.

The effect of compensation expense arising from the restricted common units granted in December 2019, amounted to $1 and $3 for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023, respectively, and is presented under the caption “General and administrative expenses” in the condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

The effect of compensation expense arising from the restricted common units granted in December 2019 and 2018 and February 2019, amounted to $40 and $122 for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2022, respectively, and was presented under the caption “General and administrative expenses” in the condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

As of September 30, 2023, the estimated compensation cost related to service conditions of non-vested restricted common units granted in 2019 not yet recognized was $1.

As of each of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were 1,001 restricted common units outstanding that remained unvested.

NOTE 9 – SEGMENT INFORMATION

ASC 280, “Segment Reporting,” establishes standards for reporting information about operating segments on a basis consistent with the Company’s internal organizational structure as well as information about geographical areas, business segments and major customers in financial statements for details on the Company’s business segments. The Company uses the “management approach” in determining reportable operating segments. The management approach considers the internal organization and reporting used by the Company’s chief operating decision maker for making operating decisions and assessing performance as the source for determining the Company’s reportable segments.

Navios Partners reports financial information and evaluates its operations by charter revenues. Navios Partners does not use discrete financial information to evaluate operating results for each type of charter or by sector. As a result, management, including the chief operating decision maker, reviews operating results solely by revenue per day and operating results of the fleet as a whole, determining where to allocate resources and drive business forward by examining consolidated results. Thus Navios Partners has determined that it operates under one reportable segment.

The following table sets out operating revenue by geographic region for Navios Partners’ reportable segment. Revenue is allocated on the basis of the geographic region in which the customer is located. Drybulk, Containerships and Tankers operate worldwide. Revenues from specific geographic region, which contribute over 10.0% of total revenue, are disclosed separately.

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.

NOTE 10 – INCOME TAXES

The Republic of the Marshall Islands does not impose a tax on international shipping income. Under the laws of the Marshall Islands, Liberia, Cayman Islands, Hong Kong, British Virgin Islands Panama and Belgium, the countries of the vessel-owning subsidiaries’ incorporation and/or vessels’ registration, the vessel-owning subsidiaries are subject to registration and tonnage taxes, which have been included in vessel expenses in the accompanying condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

In accordance with the currently applicable Greek law, foreign flagged vessels that are managed by Greek or foreign ship management companies having established an office in Greece on the basis of the applicable licensing regime are subject to tax liability towards the Greek state, which is calculated on the basis of the relevant vessel’s tonnage. A tax credit is recognized for tonnage tax (or similar tax) paid abroad, up to the amount of the tax due in Greece.

The owner, the manager and the bareboat charterer or the financial lessee (where applicable) are liable to pay the tax due to the Greek state. The payment of said tax exhausts the tax liability of the foreign ship owning company, the bareboat charterer, the financial lessee (as applicable) and the relevant manager against any tax, duty, charge or contribution payable on income from the exploitation of the foreign flagged vessel outside Greece.

We have elected to be treated and we are currently treated as a corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes. As such, we are not subject to section 1446 as that section only applies to entities that for U.S. federal income tax purposes are characterized as partnerships.

Pursuant to Section 883 of the Internal Revenue Code of the United States, U.S. source income from the international operation of ships is generally exempt from U.S. income tax if the company operating the ships meets certain incorporation and ownership requirements. Among other things, in order to qualify for this exemption, the company operating the ships must be incorporated in a country, which grants an equivalent exemption from income taxes to U.S. corporations. All the vessel-owning subsidiaries satisfy these initial criteria.

In addition, these companies must meet an ownership test. The management of Navios Partners believes that this ownership test was satisfied prior to the IPO by virtue of a special rule applicable to situations where the ship operating companies are beneficially owned by a publicly traded company. Although not free from doubt, management also believes that the ownership test will be satisfied based on the trading volume and ownership of Navios Partners’ units, but no assurance can be given that this will remain so in the future.

NOTE 11 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Navios Partners is involved in various disputes and arbitration proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. Provisions have been recognized in the financial statements for all such proceedings where Navios Partners 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. Management believes the ultimate disposition of these matters will be immaterial individually and in the aggregate to Navios Partners’ financial position, results of operations or liquidity.

In October 2023, the Board of Directors of Navios Partners authorized its quarterly cash distribution for the three month period ended September 30, 2023 of $0.05 per unit. The distribution was paid on November 13, 2023 to all unitholders of common units and general partner units of record as of November 7, 2023. The aggregate amount of the declared distribution was $1,540.

Navios Partners calculates earnings per unit by allocating reported net income for each period to each class of units based on the distribution waterfall for available cash specified in Navios Partners’ partnership agreement, net of the unallocated earnings (or losses). Basic earnings per common unit is determined by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common units outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per unit is calculated in the same manner as basic earnings per unit, except that the weighted average number of outstanding units increased to include the dilutive effect of outstanding unit options or phantom units. Net loss per unit undistributed is determined by taking the distributions in excess of net income and allocating between common units and general partnership units on a 98%-2% basis. There were no options or phantom units outstanding during each of the nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022.

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

NOTE 14 – LEASES

Time charter out contracts and pooling arrangements

The Company’s contract revenues from time chartering, bareboat chartering and pooling arrangements are governed by ASC 842.

Operating Leases

A discussion of the Company’s operating leases can be found in Note 22 – Leases to the Company’s consolidated financial statements included in the Annual Report filed on Form 20-F on March 24, 2023 with the SEC for the year ended December 31, 2022.

Based on management estimates and market conditions, the lease term of the leases is being assessed at each balance sheet date. At lease commencement, the Company determines a discount rate to calculate the present value of the lease payments so that it can determine lease classification and measure the lease liability. In determining the discount rate to be used at lease commencement, the Company used its incremental borrowing rate as there was no implicit rate included in charter-in contracts that can be readily determinable. The incremental borrowing rate is the rate that reflects the interest a lessee would have to pay to borrow funds on a collateralized basis over a similar term and in a similar economic environment. The Company then applies the respective incremental borrowing rate based on the remaining lease term of the specific lease. Navios Partners’ incremental borrowing rates were approximately 7% for the Navios Libra and the Nave Celeste, 5% for the Navios Amitie and the Navios Star, 6% for the Baghdad, the Erbil, the Navios Gemini, the Navios Venus and the Navios Lyra, and 4% for the Nave Electron.

As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the outstanding balance of the operating lease liability amounted to $279,981 and $311,115, respectively, and is presented under the captions “Operating lease liabilities, current portion” and “Operating lease liabilities, net” in the condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Right-of-use assets amounted to $284,145 and $323,048 as at September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively, and are presented under the caption “Operating lease assets” in the condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

The Company recognizes the lease payments for its operating leases as charter hire expenses on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Lease expense incurred and paid for the three and nine months period ended September 30, 2023 amounted to $17,133 and $51,884, respectively. Lease expense incurred and paid for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2022 amounted to $16,815 and $32,134, respectively. Lease expense is presented under the caption “Time charter and voyage expenses” in the condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

For the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023, the sublease income (net of commissions, if any) for vessels where the Company is a lessee amounted to $20,265 and $63,385, respectively. For the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2022, the sublease income (net of commissions, if any) for vessels where the Company is a lessee amounted to $25,636 and $59,935, respectively. Sublease income is presented under the caption “Time charter and voyage revenues” in the condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

As of September 30, 2023, the weighted average useful life of the remaining operating lease terms was 9.2 years.
