2020 Share Distributions U.S. Tax Treatment

Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation is treated as a 'C' Corporation for U.S. tax purposes and our investors receive a Form 1099-DIV.

The table below describes the distributions made by the corporation in 2020 to common shares and series C preferred shares and the reporting of such payments on United States Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") Form 1099-DIV.

The determination of the distribution percentages which constitute a taxable dividend or a nondividend distribution for U.S. federal income tax purposes is not made until after the end of the calendar year. If you are a U.S. shareholder and you received an IRS Form 1099-DIV that does not set forth such amounts, you should contact your broker or your tax advisor.

Shareholders are directed to consult their own tax advisors to determine the appropriate tax treatment with respect to the distributions on common shares and series C preferred shares.

Report of Organizational Actions Affecting Basis of Securities
US tax law requires that we file Form 8937 and furnish a statement to unit holders when we take an "organizational action" that affects the tax basis of our units. We made cash distributions during 2020, an effect of which was a reduction to unit holders' basis in units owned and/or the recognition of taxable gain. We have filed Forms 8937 (a copy of which is available through the link below) and furnish these statements on our primary website in accordance with IRS regulations. Unit holders may be required to reduce the basis in units owned and/or recognize taxable gain. Please consult your tax advisor.
