CVR Energy Reports 2015 Third Quarter Results And Announces Cash Dividend of 50 Cents per Share

SUGAR LAND, Texas, Oct. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CVR Energy, Inc. (NYSE: CVI) today announced third quarter 2015 net income of $57.9 million, or 67 cents per diluted share, on net sales of $1,408.8 million, compared to net income of $7.9 million, or 9 cents per diluted share, on net sales of $2,279.9 million for the 2014 third quarter. Third quarter 2015 adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $153.8 million, compared to third quarter 2014 adjusted EBITDA of $90.5 million.

For the first nine months of 2015, net income was $214.6 million, or $2.47 per diluted share, on net sales of $4,421.9 million, compared to net income of $218.3 million, or $2.51 per diluted share, on net sales of $7,267.7 million for the same period a year earlier. Adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2015 was $463.2 million, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $391.9 million for the first nine months of 2014.

"CVR Refining reported a solid quarter, driven by high throughputs and favorable product margins," said Jack Lipinski, CVR Energy's chief executive officer. "The Coffeyville and Wynnewood refineries posted a combined crude throughput of 200,156 barrels per day (bpd).

"CVR Partners had a difficult quarter. We expected CVR Partners' results to be lower due to the approximate 18-day, scheduled plant turnaround, but overall results were severely impacted by three unplanned outages at the Linde facility, which supplies oxygen and nitrogen to CVR Partners' facility," Lipinski said. "These outages resulted in approximately 18 days of additional lost production for CVR Partners' facility during the quarter. However, as a result of facility upgrades made during the third quarter turnaround, the plant is now posting historically high production rates."

CVR Energy also announced a third quarter 2015 cash dividend of 50 cents per share. The dividend, as declared by CVR Energy's Board of Directors, will be paid on Nov. 16, 2015, to stockholders of record on Nov. 9, 2015.

CVR Energy's third quarter cash dividend brings the cumulative cash dividends paid or declared for the first nine months of 2015 to $1.50 per share.

Today, CVR Refining announced a 2015 third quarter cash distribution of $1.01 per common unit. CVR Partners announced that it will not pay a cash distribution for the 2015 third quarter.

Petroleum Business

The petroleum business, which is operated by CVR Refining and includes the Coffeyville and Wynnewood refineries, reported third quarter 2015 operating income of $137.2 million on net sales of $1,361.6 million, compared to operating income of $3.9 million on net sales of $2,215.2 million in the third quarter of 2014.

Refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact per crude oil throughput barrel, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $18.65 in the 2015 third quarter, compared to $13.16 for the same period in 2014.

Direct operating expenses, excluding major scheduled turnaround expenses, per crude oil throughput barrel, exclusive of depreciation and amortization, for the 2015 third quarter was $5.27, compared to $6.48 in the third quarter of 2014.

Third quarter 2015 throughputs of crude oil and all other feedstocks and blendstocks for the Coffeyville and Wynnewood refineries totaled 210,917 bpd. Throughputs of crude oil and all other feedstocks and blendstocks for both refineries totaled 183,814 bpd for the same period in 2014.

(1)

Gross tons produced for ammonia represent total ammonia produced, including ammonia produced that was upgraded into UAN. Net tons available for sale represent the ammonia available for sale that was not upgraded into UAN.



(2)

In addition to the produced ammonia, the Nitrogen Fertilizer segment acquired approximately 7,500 tons and 4,000 tons of ammonia during the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The Nitrogen Fertilizer segment acquired approximately 29,300 and 29,700 tons of ammonia during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.



(3)

Product pricing at gate per ton represents net sales less freight revenue divided by product sales volume in tons and is shown in order to provide a pricing measure that is comparable across the fertilizer industry.



(4)

On-stream factor is the total number of hours operated divided by the total number of hours in the reporting period and is a measure of operating efficiency.




Excluding the impact of the full facility turnaround and the Linde air separation unit outages, the on-stream factors would have been 100.0% for gasifier, 97.3% for ammonia and 96.2% for UAN for the three months ended September 30, 2015.




Excluding the impact of the full facility turnaround and the Linde air separation unit outages, the on-stream factors would have been 99.8% for gasifier, 97.0% for ammonia and 96.9% for UAN for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. Excluding the impact of the shutdown for installation of the waste heat boiler, pressure swing adsorption unit upgrade and the Linde air separation unit maintenance, the on-stream factors for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 would have been 97.8% for gasifier, 93.0% for ammonia and 93.0% for UAN.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's actual results in accordance with GAAP for the applicable periods, the Company also uses the non-GAAP financial measures noted above, which are reconciled to our GAAP-based results below. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an alternative for GAAP results. The adjustments are provided to enhance an overall understanding of the Company's financial performance for the applicable periods and are indicators management believes are relevant and useful for planning and forecasting future periods.

Adjusted net income is not a recognized term under GAAP and should not be substituted for net income as a measure of our performance but rather should be utilized as a supplemental measure of financial performance in evaluating our business. Management believes that adjusted net income provides relevant and useful information that enables external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, to better understand and evaluate our ongoing operating results and allow for greater transparency in the review of our overall financial, operational and economic performance. Adjusted net income per diluted share represents adjusted net income divided by weighted-average diluted shares outstanding.

Refining margin per crude oil throughput barrel is a measurement calculated as the difference between the Petroleum segment's net sales and cost of product sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization). Refining margin is a non-GAAP measure that we believe is important to investors in evaluating the refineries' performance as a general indication of the amount above their cost of product sold at which they are able to sell refined products. Each of the components used in this calculation (net sales and cost of product sold exclusive of depreciation and amortization) can be taken directly from our Petroleum segment's Statements of Operations. Our calculation of refining margin may differ from similar calculations of other companies in the industry, thereby limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. In order to derive the refining margin per crude oil throughput barrel, we utilize the total dollar figures for refining margin as derived above and divide by the applicable number of crude oil throughput barrels for the period. We believe that refining margin is important to enable investors to better understand and evaluate the Petroleum segment's ongoing operating results and allow for greater transparency in the review of our overall financial, operational and economic performance.

Refining margin per crude oil throughput barrel adjusted for FIFO impact is a measurement calculated as the difference between the Petroleum segment's net sales and cost of product sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization) adjusted for FIFO impact. Refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact is a non-GAAP measure that we believe is important to investors in evaluating the refineries' performance as a general indication of the amount above their cost of product sold (taking into account the impact of the utilization of FIFO) at which they are able to sell refined products. Our calculation of refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact may differ from calculations of other companies in the industry, thereby limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. Under the FIFO accounting method, changes in crude oil prices can cause fluctuations in the inventory valuation of crude oil, work in process and finished goods, thereby resulting in a favorable FIFO impact when crude oil prices increase and an unfavorable FIFO impact when crude oil prices decrease.

Gross profit (loss) is calculated as the difference between the Petroleum segment's net sales, cost of product sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization), direct operating expenses (exclusive of depreciation and amortization), major scheduled turnaround expenses, flood insurance recovery and depreciation and amortization. Gross profit (loss) per crude throughput barrel is calculated as gross profit (loss) as derived above divided by the refineries' crude oil throughput volumes for the respective periods presented. Gross profit (loss) is a non-GAAP measure that should not be substituted for operating income. Management believes it is important to investors in evaluating the refineries' performance and the Petroleum segment's ongoing operating results. Our calculation of gross profit (loss) may differ from similar calculations of other companies in the industry, thereby limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA represents net income before (i) interest expense and other financing costs, net of interest income, (ii) income tax expense and (iii) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA adjusted for (i) FIFO impact (favorable) unfavorable; (ii) share-based compensation; (iii) loss on extinguishment of debt; (iv) major scheduled turnaround expenses; (v) (gain) loss on derivatives, net; (vi) current period settlements on derivative contracts; (vii) flood insurance recovery and (viii) expenses associated with the pending Rentech Nitrogen mergers. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized terms under GAAP and should not be substituted for net income or cash flow from operations. Management believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA enable investors to better understand and evaluate our ongoing operating results and allow for greater transparency in reviewing our overall financial, operational and economic performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA presented by other companies may not be comparable to our presentation, since each company may define these terms differently. Below is a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and EBITDA to Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014:

Petroleum and Nitrogen Fertilizer EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA by operating segment represents net income (loss) before (i) interest expense and other financing costs, net of interest income, (ii) income tax expense and (iii) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA by operating segment represents EBITDA by operating segment adjusted for (i) FIFO impact (favorable) unfavorable; (ii) share-based compensation, non-cash; (iii) loss on extinguishment of debt; (iv) major scheduled turnaround expenses; (v) (gain) loss on derivatives, net; (vi) current period settlements on derivative contracts; (vii) flood insurance recovery and (viii) expenses associated with the pending Rentech Nitrogen mergers. We present Adjusted EBITDA by operating segment because it is the starting point for CVR Refining's and CVR Partners' calculation of available cash for distribution. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA by operating segment are not recognized terms under GAAP and should not be substituted for net income (loss) as a measure of performance. Management believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA by operating segment enable investors to better understand CVR Refining's and CVR Partners' ability to make distributions to their common unitholders, help investors evaluate our ongoing operating results and allow for greater transparency in reviewing our overall financial, operational and economic performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA presented by other companies may not be comparable to our presentation, since each company may define these terms differently. Below is a reconciliation of net income (loss) to EBITDA and EBITDA to Adjusted EBITDA for the Petroleum and Nitrogen Fertilizer segments for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014:

Derivatives Summary. The Petroleum segment enters into commodity swap contracts through crack spread swap agreements with financial counterparties to fix the spread risk between the refineries' crude oil purchases and the refined products the refineries produce for sale. Through these swaps, the Petroleum segment will sell a fixed differential for the value between the selected refined product benchmark and the benchmark crude oil price, thereby locking in a margin for a portion of the refineries' production. The physical volumes are not exchanged and these contracts are net settled with cash. From time to time, the Petroleum segment holds various NYMEX positions through a third-party clearing house.

The table below summarizes the Petroleum segment's open commodity swap positions as of September 30, 2015. The positions are primarily in the form of crack spread swap agreements with financial counterparties, wherein the Petroleum segment has locked in differentials at the fixed prices noted below. As of September 30, 2015, the open commodity swap positions for 2015 and 2016 were comprised of distillate crack swaps.
