On November 15, 2007, Navios Partners entered into a new revolving credit facility agreement which provides for borrowings of up to $260.0 million, of which $165.0 million was drawn on November 16, 2007.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

The following table presents consolidated revenue and expense information for the 46-day period from November 16, 2007 to December 31, 2007. We do not present respective information for periods prior to the IPO because we believe that those periods are not necessarily comparable given the change in the nature and focus of the business. For example it is the policy of Navios Partners' not to trade FFAs, whereas certain prior periods contain such transactions. In addition, certain agreements such as the management agreement were first effective as of November 16, 2007.



For the 46-day period ended December 31, 2007, Navios Partners' time charter revenue amounted to $7.0 million whereas time charter expenses for the same period were $1.4 million. Other expenses including management fees and general and administrative expenses amounted to $1.3 million.

EBITDA for the period from November 16, 2007 to December 31, 2007 was $4.3 million.

Reserve for estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures for the period was $1.0 million. 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.

Navios Partners generated an operating surplus for the period of $3.3 million. Operating surplus is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors to measure the financial performance of Navios Partners and other Master Limited Partnerships (refer to Exhibit 3 for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to Net income).

Depreciation and amortization expense for the period (including amortization of drydocking and special survey costs presented under direct vessel expenses) was $1.5 million and interest expense and finance cost related to the new facility agreement of $165.0 million was $1.2 million.

Net income for the 46-day period from November 16, 2007 to December 31, 2007 was $1.6 million.

Purchase Options and Acquisitions

The purchase option on Fantastiks, a 180,000 DWT Capesize vessel was exercised in October 2007. This vessel, currently chartered-in, will be delivered to the owned fleet of Navios Partners in March 2008 for an amount of $34.2 million. The vessel's current market value is estimated at $155.0 million per Clarkson Research Services Ltd.. Navios Partners has entered into a contractual agreement for the delivery of a newbuilding Capesize vessel in June 2009 and has two purchase options exercisable within the next five years, for two Panamax vessels. Additionally it has the option to acquire the capital stock of the subsidiary that will own a newbuilding Capesize vessel scheduled for delivery in October 2009.

Fleet Employment Profile

The following table reflects certain key indicators indicative of the performance of Navios Partners and its core fleet performance for period from November 16, 2007 to December 31, 2007.



(1) Available days for fleet are total calendar days the vessels were in our possession for the relevant period after subtracting off-hire days associated with major repairs, drydockings or special surveys. The shipping industry uses available days to measure the number of days in a relevant period during which vessels should be capable of generating revenues.
(2) Operating days is 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 our vessels were available for revenue generating available days, 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 a company's efficiency in finding suitable employment for its vessels.

Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

1. EBITDA

EBITDA: EBITDA represents net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Navios Partners uses EBITDA because Navios Partners believes that EBITDA is a basis upon which liquidity can be assessed and because EBITDA presents useful information to investors regarding Navios Partners' ability to service and/or incur indebtedness. Navios Partners also uses EBITDA (i) in its credit agreement to measure compliance with covenants such as interest coverage and debt incurrence; (ii) by prospective and current lessors as well as potential lenders to evaluate potential transactions; and (iii) to evaluate and price potential acquisition candidates.

EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of Navios Partners' results as reported under US GAAP. Some of these limitations are: (i) EBITDA does 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, and EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such capital expenditures. Because of these limitations, EBITDA should not be considered as a principal indicator of Navios Partners' performance.

2. Operating Surplus

Operating Surplus represents net income adjusted for depreciation and amortization expense, non-cash interest expense and estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures. 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.

Operating surplus is a quantitative standard 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 as an alternative to net income or any other indicator of Navios Partners' performance required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.
