Conference Call & Webcast: Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at 8:00 am ET

PIRAEUS, GREECE -- (Marketwire) -- 11/19/12 -- Navios Maritime Partners L.P. ("Navios Partners") (NYSE: NMM) and its subsidiaries (collectively "the Company") announced today that it agreed to restructure its credit default insurance.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Navios Partners, stated, "Navios Partners entered into a restructuring agreement with its credit default insurer. We view this as a positive development and believe that Navios Partners will be stronger after the restructuring. Navios Partners will receive (1) $24.6 million lump sum cash payment, (2) pool insurance covering $175.9 million of charter revenue, providing a maximum payout of $120 million and (3) supplemental credit default insurance from Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. on $76.7 million revenue of charter revenue, providing a maximum payout of $20 million."

Credit Default Insurance

In connection with this restructuring, Navios Partners will receive:

  • $24.6 million lump sum cash payment;
  • $175.9 million of revenue covered under restructured credit default insurance policy; and
  • $76.7 million revenue covered under Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. ("Navios Holdings") supplemental credit default insurance policy.

$24.6 million lump sum cash payment

Navios Partners will receive $24.6 million of cash from the credit default insurer, composed, in part, of $9.8 million attributable to defaulted charters. The remaining $14.8 million is not attributable to any charter and represents excess cash compensation.

The Company anticipates using the $24.6 million to repay debt, reducing net debt to book capitalization by 7.5%. The Company anticipates repaying $10.8 million due in 2013, $4.9 million due in 2014 and $8.9 million due in 2015 and beyond.

$175.9 million of revenue covered under restructured credit default insurance

Navios Partners will have $175.9 million of charters that will participate in pool insurance coverage from the credit default insurer. This pool insurance will pay a maximum cash payment of $120.0 million. Navios Holdings has additional charters totaling $41.2 million that will also participate in this pool coverage.

$76.7 million revenue covered under Navios Holdings supplemental insurance

As part of restructuring of the credit default insurance and pursuant to the management agreement between the parties, Navios Holdings agreed to provide $76.7 million supplemental charter insurance with a maximum cash payment of $20 million. Navios Holdings agreed to provide this additional insurance to provide certainty to the cash flow of Navios Partners.

Total Insurance

Total charter revenue covered by the two insurance policies amounts to $252.6 million. Approximately 80% of this amount is for counterparties that are rated as investment grade by recognized rating agencies.

The maximum cash payment to Navios Partners from the two policies is $140.0 million. Excluding investment grade counterparties, the maximum cash payment provides 278% coverage to revenue from non-investment grade counterparties.

Closing of transaction

Closing of the credit default insurance restructuring is expected within November 2012, subject to customary closing conditions and required approvals by financing banks.

Navios Partners will host a conference call on Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at 8:00 am ET, at which time Navios Partners' senior management will provide highlights and commentary on the restructuring.
