Navios Holdings expects to extinguish $614.3 million of its 7.375% First Priority Ship Mortgage Notes due January 15, 2022 (the “Ship Mortgage Notes”) and to redeem $50.0 million of its 11.25% Senior Secured Notes due August 15, 2022 (the “Senior Secured Notes”) through a combination of sources, including $550 million of debt financing described below and available cash. Navios Holdings has entered into the following agreements: (i) a term loan facility with Credit Agricole CIB (“CACIB”) and BNP Paribas (“BNPP”) of up to $105.0 million; (ii) a term loan facility with Hamburg Commercial Bank AG (“HCOB”) of up to $105.0 million; (iii) sale-leaseback agreements of $77.0 million in total and (iv) $262.6 million of PIK loan facilities from N Shipmanagement Acquisition Corp. and its subsidiaries (“NSM”), an entity affiliated with Navios Holdings’ Chairwoman and Chief Executive Officer, including additional liquidity of $150.0 million and providing for release of approximately $300.0 million of collateral. The PIK loan facilities from NSM provide for a 18-month period during which there will be no cash interest or amortization. These transactions are expected to close by the first half of January 2022.
Pro forma for the above transactions, Navios Holdings has decreased its leverage by 39.3% to $722 million from $1,189 million debt outstanding (including Ship Mortgage Notes repurchased which are being cancelled) as of December 31, 2020.
