CVR Energy Reports 2016 Second Quarter Results And Announces Cash Dividend of 50 Cents

SUGAR LAND, Texas, July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CVR Energy, Inc. (NYSE: CVI) today announced second quarter 2016 net income of $28.4 million, or 33 cents per diluted share, on net sales of $1,283.2 million, compared to net income of $101.9 million, or $1.17 per diluted share, on net sales of $1,624.2 million for the 2015 second quarter. Second quarter 2016 adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $64.4 million, compared to second quarter 2015 adjusted EBITDA of $145.7 million.

For the first six months of 2016, net income was $12.2 million, or 14 cents per diluted share, on net sales of $2,188.7 million, compared to net income of $156.7 million, or $1.80 per diluted share, on net sales of $3,013.1 million for the same period a year earlier. Adjusted EBITDA for the first six months of 2016 was $100.6 million, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $309.4 million for the first six months of 2015.

"At CVR Partners, the integration of the East Dubuque fertilizer facility has gone smoothly since the acquisition of Rentech Nitrogen Partners, L.P. in April," said Jack Lipinski, CVR Energy's chief executive officer. "CVR Partners also completed a $645 million bond offering during the 2016 second quarter, which enabled it to put in place a long-term capital structure.

"CVR Refining's Coffeyville and Wynnewood refineries posted solid operational performance during the second quarter with a combined crude throughput of 202,536 barrels per day (bpd)," Lipinski said. "However, the increasing cost of RINs offset the improvements we saw in refining margins.

"As I mentioned in the CVR Refining second quarter earnings news release, and I am repeating it here, RINs, which CVR Refining has to purchase to comply with the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), have become completely disconnected from the cost of blending and instead have become a source of windfall profits for blenders who the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chose to exempt from the program," he said. "The RFS program, as currently managed by the EPA, fails on many fronts. Not only are exempt blenders earning windfall profits from selling RINs to refiners who cannot blend, the RFS program allows exempt blenders to retain the profits and not increase biofuel usage in the U.S.

"RINs have become a black pool allowing exempt parties, and even speculators, to drive prices to confiscatory levels. We believe the market may be cornered, the effect of which will be to bring small merchant refiners to the brink of bankruptcy while unjustly enriching speculators and exempt blenders," Lipinski continued. "RINs were intended to be a compliance tool for refiners, not a device to extract windfall profits from obligated parties. The EPA needs to open its eyes and recognize that it must change the point of obligation to close the loophole that allows these exempt blenders, who control the vast majority of biofuels blending, to retain the profits from selling RINs without investing in increasing biofuel use. The windfall serves no regulatory purpose, but creates a system of winners and losers within the fuels industry based on their ability to blend.

"Market experts like Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse are advising investors to avoid companies with high RIN exposure and to buy shares in large retail and distribution chains, like Casey's General Stores, who are benefitting from this structural flaw in the EPA's rule," he said. "For example, Goldman Sachs predicts that Casey's will see a 1 percent increase in EBITDA for every 10 cent increase in the price of RINs. Adding to concerns about the RIN market is the ability of third parties to buy and sell RINs. At the point that Goldman Sachs is advising investors to buy shares based on their RIN exposure, it seems reasonable to ask the question of whether third-party speculators are buying and selling RINs directly. There are a discrete number of obligated parties. It would be very easy for third parties to buy RINs and corner the market, driving up prices for obligated parties even higher. The EPA has so far refused to disclose the identity of the entities holding, buying and selling RINs, but this certainly should be investigated.

"There are pending lawsuits seeking to compel the EPA to fix the loophole and administrative requests for a rulemaking, both targeted at stopping the flow of profits to exempt parties at the expense of RIN-short refiners. We are hopeful that justice and reason will prevail and that RINs will once again become a compliance tool for refiners and not a windfall profit device for exempt parties," Lipinski concluded.

CVR Energy also announced a second quarter 2016 cash dividend of 50 cents per share. The dividend, as declared by CVR Energy's Board of Directors, will be paid on Aug. 15, 2016, to stockholders of record on Aug. 8, 2016.

CVR Energy's second quarter cash dividend brings the cumulative cash dividends paid or declared for the first six months of 2016 to $1.00 per share.

Today, CVR Partners announced a 2016 second quarter cash distribution of 17 cents per common unit. CVR Refining announced that it will not pay a cash distribution for the 2016 second quarter.

* See Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures below.





(1)

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.



(2)

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



(3)

In addition to the produced ammonia, the Nitrogen Fertilizer segment acquired approximately 5,000 tons and 600 tons of ammonia during the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The Nitrogen Fertilizer segment acquired approximately 8,000 tons and 21,800 tons of ammonia during the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.



(4)

The cost per MMBtu excludes derivative activity, when applicable. The impact of natural gas derivative activity during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 was not material.



(5)

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 at the East Dubuque Facility, the on-stream factors for the East Dubuque Facility would have been 100.0% for ammonia and 99.6% for UAN for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

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 (loss) 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) loss on extinguishment of debt; (iii) major scheduled turnaround expenses; (iv) (gain) loss on derivatives, net; (v) current period settlements on derivative contracts; (vi) flood insurance recovery; and (vii) expenses associated with the East Dubuque Merger. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized terms under GAAP and should not be substituted for net income (loss) 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.

EBITDA for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015 was also adjusted for share-based compensation expense in calculating Adjusted EBITDA.  Beginning in 2016, share-based compensation expense is no longer utilized as an adjustment to derive Adjusted EBITDA as no equity-settled awards remain outstanding for CVR Energy or any of its subsidiaries, and CVR Partners and CVR Refining are responsible for reimbursing CVR Energy for their allocated portion of all outstanding awards.  Management believes, based on the nature, classification and cash settlement feature of the currently outstanding awards, that it is no longer necessary to adjust EBITDA for share-based compensation expense to derive Adjusted EBITDA. For comparison purposes we have also provided Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015 without adjusting for share-based compensation expense in order to provide a comparison to Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016.

A reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and EBITDA to Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 is as follows:

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 East Dubuque Merger. 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.

Beginning in 2016, share-based compensation expense is no longer utilized as an adjustment to derive Adjusted net income and Adjusted EBITDA as no equity-settled awards remain outstanding for CVR Energy or any of its subsidiaries, and CVR Partners and CVR Refining are responsible for reimbursing CVR Energy for their allocated portion of all outstanding awards. Management believes, based on the nature, classification and cash settlement feature of the currently outstanding awards, that it is no longer necessary to adjust net income (loss) and EBITDA for share-based compensation expense to derive Adjusted net income and Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted net income attributable to CVR Energy stockholders and Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2015 would have been $71.0 million and $143.8 million, respectively, without adjusting for share-based compensation expense of $1.9 million. Additionally, adjusted net income attributable to CVR Energy stockholders and Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2015 would have been $153.5 million and $303.5 million, respectively, without adjusting for share-based compensation expense of $5.9 million.



(2)

Represents the portion of gain (loss) on derivatives, net related to contracts that matured during the respective periods and settled with counterparties.

Represents an insurance recovery from Coffeyville Resources Refining and Marketing, LLC's environmental insurance carriers as a result of the flood and crude oil discharge at the Coffeyville refinery on June/July 2007.



(4)

Represents a loss on extinguishment of debt incurred by CVR Partners in June 2016 in connection with the repurchase of senior notes assumed in the East Dubuque Merger, which includes a prepayment premium and write-off of the unamortized purchase accounting adjustment.



(5)

On April 1, 2016, CVR Partners completed the East Dubuque Merger. The Nitrogen Fertilizer Partnership incurred legal and other professional fees and other merger related expenses for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016 that are referred to herein as expenses associated with the East Dubuque Merger, which are included in selling, general and administrative expenses.
