SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P. Announces Solid Third Quarter 2015 Results and Increases Full Year 2015 Guidance

  • Net income attributable to SXCP and Adjusted EBITDA remained relatively flat year-on-year at $19.5 million and $51.8 million, respectively
  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to SXCP increased $12.3 million to $49.9 million reflecting our acquired interest in the Granite City coke facility and the acquisition of Convent Marine Terminal
  • Distributable cash flow totaled $31.8 million in third quarter 2015, benefiting from the Convent Marine Terminal and Granite City dropdown transactions
  • Increased full year outlook for 2015 Adjusted EBITDA attributable to SunCoke Energy Partners to $185 million to $190 million and 2015 distributable cash flow to $110 million to $116 million
  • Repurchased $10 million of units and declared tenth consecutive quarterly distribution increase

SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE:SXCP) today reported third quarter 2015 net income attributable to SXCP of $19.5 million as compared to $20.2 million in the same prior year period. The quarter's results reflect the Granite City cokemaking facility dropdown and Convent Marine Terminal transactions, offset by higher financing costs and the impact of the idling of our customer's facility, Haverhill Chemicals LLC, with whom we have a steam supply agreement.

“The acquisition of the Convent Marine Terminal had an immediate positive impact on results, adding $5.4 million to the quarter’s Adjusted EBITDA,” said Fritz Henderson, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P. “We are excited about Convent's expected contribution to our existing Coal Logistics business and are increasing 2015 Adjusted EBITDA attributable to SunCoke Energy Partners guidance to $185 million to $190 million as a result of this and the Granite City dropdown transaction.”

Henderson continued, “The strength and stability of our cash flows, underpinned by solid operating results and the security of our long-term take-or-pay contracts, has supported our ability to increase cash distributions per unit for ten consecutive quarters. Looking ahead, we expect the Convent and Granite City transactions will drive incremental cash flow, which we intend to deploy on accretive opportunities to drive unitholder value.”

THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

  Three Months Ended September 30,
(Dollars in millions)   2015   2014   Decrease
Revenues(1) $ 210.2   $ 216.8   $ (6.6 )
Operating income(1) $ 33.7 $ 38.8 $ (5.1 )
Adjusted EBITDA (1)(2) $ 51.8 $ 52.5 $ (0.7 )
Net income attributable to SXCP(3)   $ 19.5     $ 20.2     $ (0.7 )

(1) Includes 100 percent of Granite City in third quarter 2015 and 2014.
(2) See definition of Adjusted EBITDA and reconciliation elsewhere in this release.
(3) Net income attributable to SXCP includes the impacts of SXCP's 75 percent ownership interest in Granite City from July 1, 2015 through August 11, 2015 and SXCP's 98 percent ownership interest in Granite City from August 12, 2015 through September 30, 2015, respectively.

Revenues were $210.2 million in third quarter 2015, a decline of $6.6 million from the same prior year period primarily due to the pass-through of lower coal costs in our Domestic Coke segment, partially offset by revenue generated by our new Convent Marine Terminal.

Operating income and Adjusted EBITDA decreased $5.1 million and $0.7 million, respectively. The impact on Adjusted EBITDA of our customer's decision to idle its Haverhill Chemicals LLC facility was mostly offset by the acquisition of Convent Marine Terminal. Operating income also reflects higher depreciation and amortization, primarily related to Convent Marine Terminal.

THIRD QUARTER SEGMENT INFORMATION

Domestic Coke

Domestic Coke segment consists of our 98 percent interest in the Haverhill, Middletown and Granite City cokemaking facilities, located in Franklin Furnace and Middletown, Ohio; and Granite City, Illinois, respectively.

(1) See definitions of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per ton and reconciliation elsewhere in this release.

Adjusted EBITDA declined $3.6 million to $46.6 million in third quarter 2015 primarily driven by the impact of idling of the Haverhill Chemicals LLC facility, with whom we have a steam supply agreement.

Coal Logistics

Coal Logistics consists of the coal handling and blending services operated by SXCP at Convent Marine Terminal located on the Mississippi river in Louisiana, Lake Terminal in East Chicago, IN, and Kanawha River Terminals, LLC (KRT), which has terminals along the Ohio, Big Sandy and Kanawha rivers in West Virginia and Kentucky.

DEFINITIONS

  • Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization adjusted for sales discounts, and Coal Logistics deferred revenue. Prior to the expiration of our nonconventional fuel tax credits in 2013, Adjusted EBITDA included an add-back of sales discounts related to the sharing of these credits with our customers. Any adjustments to these amounts subsequent to 2013 have been included in Adjusted EBITDA. The Coal Logistics deferred revenue represents cash received on Coal Logistics take-or-pay contracts for which revenue has not yet been recognized under US GAAP. Including Coal Logistics deferred revenue in Adjusted EBITDA reflects the cash flow of our contractual arrangements. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered an alternative to net income or operating income under GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures in other businesses. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of the operating performance and liquidity of the Partnership's net assets and its ability to incur and service debt, fund capital expenditures and make distributions. Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because it highlights trends in our business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP measures and because it eliminates items that have less bearing on our operating performance and liquidity. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and they should not be considered an alternative to net income, operating cash flow or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP.
  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to SXCP represents Adjusted EBITDA less Adjusted EBITDA attributable to noncontrolling interests.
  • Distributable Cash Flow equals Adjusted EBITDA less net cash paid for interest expense, ongoing capital expenditures, accruals for replacement capital expenditures and cash distributions to noncontrolling interests; plus amounts received under the Omnibus Agreement and acquisition expenses deemed to be Expansion Capital under our Partnership Agreement. Distributable Cash Flow is a non-GAAP supplemental financial measure that management and external users of SXCP's financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies use to assess:
    • SXCP's operating performance as compared to other publicly traded partnerships, without regard to historical cost basis;
    • the ability of SXCP's assets to generate sufficient cash flow to make distributions to SXCP's unitholders;
    • SXCP's ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and
    • the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects and the returns on investment of various investment opportunities.

    We believe that Distributable Cash Flow provides useful information to investors in assessing SXCP's financial condition and results of operations. Distributable Cash Flow should not be considered an alternative to net income, operating income, cash flows from operating activities, or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Distributable Cash Flow has important limitations as an analytical tool because it excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income and net cash provided by operating activities and used in investing activities. Additionally, because Distributable Cash Flow may be defined differently by other companies in the industry, our definition of Distributable Cash Flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing its utility.

  • Ongoing capital expenditures (“capex”) are capital expenditures made to maintain the existing operating capacity of our assets and/or to extend their useful lives. Ongoing capex also includes new equipment that improves the efficiency, reliability or effectiveness of existing assets. Ongoing capex does not include normal repairs and maintenance, which are expensed as incurred, or significant capital expenditures. For purposes of calculating distributable cash flow, the portion of ongoing capex attributable to SXCP is used and includes capital expenditures included in working capital at the end of the period.
  • Replacement capital expenditures (“capex”) represents an annual accrual necessary to fund SXCP’s share of the estimated costs to replace or rebuild our facilities at the end of their working lives. This accrual is estimated based on the average quarterly anticipated replacement capital that we expect to incur over the long term to replace our major capital assets at the end of their working lives. The replacement capex accrual estimate will be subject to review and prospective change by SXCP’s general partner at least annually and whenever an event occurs that causes a material adjustment of replacement capex, provided such change is approved by our conflicts committee.

Unpredictable or unknown factors not discussed in this release also could have material adverse effects on forward-looking statements.

BASIS OF PRESENTATION

On January 13, 2015, we acquired a 75 percent interest in the Granite City cokemaking operation from SXC. Because this was a transfer between entities under common control, all historical financial results of Granite City prior to the dropdown have been included in our financial results. On August 12, 2015, we acquired an additional 23 percent interest in the Granite City cokemaking facility. Net income attributable to SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P./Predecessor includes 100 percent of Granite City net income prior to dropdown, 75 percent after the January dropdown and 98 percent after dropdown in August. Net income attributable to Predecessor includes 100% of Granite City net income prior to the dropdown on January 13, 2015.
