A Book Review

While it will never be a best seller, Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation’s (“NMAC”) proxy statement makes a cogent argument for shareholder approval of the pending transaction for the acquisition of 11 newbuilding product tankers (four LR1s and seven MR2s) and two chemical tankers with an option to acquire two further LR1 product tankers. The acquisition cost is $457.7 million of which $334.3 million will be financed with debt. Included in the $344.3 million in debt facilities is a $52 million loan facility, which is in advance stages of negotiation, but, unlike the rest, not yet committed. The balance of the purchase price will be funded from the $250.8 million of proceeds of the initial public offering of 25.3 million units, including 3.3 million units issued upon the exercise of the over-allotment option. Invested in Treasuries, the cash position of the trust account stood at $251.5 as of year-end. The actual cash availability is uncertain however as unit holders can vote against the acquisition and exercise their conversion rights.
