Navios Wraps Up 14-Ship Deal with HSH Nordbank

Navios Maritime Holdings, Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation and Navios Maritime Partners have closed the transaction for the acquisition of 14 vessels from debtors of Germany’s HSH Nordbank AG (HSH), as well as formed a jointly-owned company to manage the vessels dubbed Navios Europe (II) Inc.

The 14 vessels include seven dry bulkers and seven container vessels with an average age of approximately four years and a current fair market value of approximately USD 225 million.

Two of the vessels have been delivered, one is expected to be delivered within this week and 10 vessels are expected to be delivered by the end of July. The remaining vessel is expected to be delivered by mid-November.

Angeliki Frangou, Navios Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are pleased to announce a second transaction with HSH where we are acquiring vessels at historically low values and with favorable economics that are better than the first transaction.”

The purchase price consists of USD 145.3 million in cash and the assumption of USD 182.5 million Subordinated HSH Participating Loan (HSH Junior Loan).

The cash payment will be funded by a USD 135 million senior bank debt and a USD 14 million investment from Navios.

Navios Europe reserves the right to sell vessels after year six to recover principal investments and any accumulated returns.
