Navios Containers expect delivery of the boxships in early November 2017.
The company expects the vessels on the current rate environment, to generate around USD 1.5 million of EBITDA over the next twelve months, based on fixed operating expenses and 360 revenue days, Navios Containers said.
Navios new acquisition of the container vessels will be financed with cash on the company's balance sheet and bank debt on terms consistent with its existing credit facilities.
On completing the transaction, Navios Containers will control 16 vessels, totaling 65,600 TEU with a current average fleet age of 9.7 years.
