Icahn Enterprises L.P. Reports Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results
  • Second quarter net loss attributable to Icahn Enterprises of $498 million, or a loss of $2.49 per depositary unit
  • Board approves quarterly distribution of $2.00 per depositary unit

NEW YORK, Aug. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Icahn Enterprises L.P. (NASDAQ:IEP) is reporting second quarter 2019 revenues of $2.2 billion and net loss attributable to Icahn Enterprises of $498 million, or a loss of $2.49 per depositary unit, including a loss of $474 million from continuing operations, or a loss of $2.37 per depositary unit, driven primarily by a decline in the market value of the shares of Tenneco Inc. common stock that Icahn Enterprises received last year in connection with the sale of its indirect wholly owned subsidiary Federal-Mogul LLC to Tenneco. For the three months ended June 30, 2018, revenues were $3.4 billion and net income attributable to Icahn Enterprises was $302 million, or $1.66 per depositary unit, including $148 million from continuing operations, or $0.81 per depositary unit. For the three months ended June 30, 2019, Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Icahn Enterprises was $(258) million compared to $335 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. For the three months ended June 30, 2019, Adjusted EBIT attributable to Icahn Enterprises was $(350) million compared to $250 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018.

For the six months ended June 30, 2019 revenues were $4.1 billion and net loss attributable to Icahn Enterprises was $892 million, or a loss of $4.51 per depositary unit, including a loss of $868 million from continuing operations, or a loss of $4.39 per depositary unit. A decline in the market value of the shares of Tenneco Inc. common stock that Icahn Enterprises received last year in connection with the sale of its indirect wholly owned subsidiary Federal-Mogul LLC to Tenneco was a major contributor to this loss. For the six months ended June 30, 2018, revenues were $6.4 billion and net income attributable to Icahn Enterprises was $434 million, or $2.41 per depositary unit, including $246 million from continuing operations, or $1.37 per depositary unit. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Icahn Enterprises was $(452) million compared to $660 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, Adjusted EBIT attributable to Icahn Enterprises was $(631) million compared to $491 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

For the six months ended June 30, 2019, indicative net asset value increased to $8.26 billion compared to $8.15 billion as of December 31, 2018.

On July 31, 2019, the Board of Directors of the general partner of Icahn Enterprises declared a quarterly distribution in the amount of $2.00 per depositary unit, which will be paid on or about September 18, 2019 to depositary unitholders of record at the close of business on August 13, 2019. Depositary unitholders will have until September 6, 2019 to make an election to receive either cash or additional depositary units; if a unitholder does not make an election, it will automatically be deemed to have elected to receive the distribution in cash. Depositary unitholders who elect to receive additional depositary units will receive units valued at the volume weighted average trading price of the units on NASDAQ during the 5 consecutive trading days ending September 13, 2019. No fractional depositary units will be issued pursuant to the distribution payment. Icahn Enterprises will make a cash payment in lieu of issuing fractional depositary units to any unitholders electing to receive depositary units. Any unitholders that would only be eligible to receive a fraction of a depositary unit based on the above calculation will receive a cash payment.

Icahn Enterprises L.P., a master limited partnership, is a diversified holding company engaged in seven primary business segments: Investment, Energy, Automotive, Food Packaging, Metals, Real Estate and Home Fashion.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating its performance. These include non-GAAP EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT. EBITDA represents earnings from continuing operations before interest expense, income tax (benefit) expense and depreciation and amortization. EBIT represents earnings from continuing operations before interest expense and income tax (benefit) expense. We define Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBIT as EBITDA and EBIT, respectively, excluding the effects of impairment, restructuring costs, certain pension plan expenses, certain share-based compensation, discontinued operations, gains/losses on extinguishment of debt and certain other non-operational charges. We present EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT on a consolidated basis and attributable to Icahn Enterprises net of the effect of non-controlling interests. We conduct substantially all of our operations through subsidiaries. The operating results of our subsidiaries may not be sufficient to make distributions to us. In addition, our subsidiaries are not obligated to make funds available to us for payment of our indebtedness, payment of distributions on our depositary units or otherwise, and distributions and intercompany transfers from our subsidiaries to us may be restricted by applicable law or covenants contained in debt agreements and other agreements to which these subsidiaries currently may be subject or into which they may enter into in the future. The terms of any borrowings of our subsidiaries or other entities in which we own equity may restrict dividends, distributions or loans to us.

We believe that providing EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to investors has economic substance as these measures provide important supplemental information of our performance to investors and permits investors and management to evaluate the core operating performance of our business without regard to interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization and the effects of impairment, restructuring costs, certain pension plan expenses, certain gains/losses on disposition of assets, certain share based compensation, discontinued operations, gains/losses on extinguishment of debt and certain other non-operational charges. Additionally, we believe this information is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies that have issued debt. Management uses, and believes that investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our operating results, as well as in planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. Adjusting earnings for these charges allows investors to evaluate our performance from period to period, as well as our peers, without the effects of certain items that may vary depending on accounting methods and the book value of assets. Additionally, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT present meaningful measures of performance exclusive of our capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired and financed.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation, or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or U.S. GAAP. For example, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT:

  • do not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures, or contractual commitments;
  • do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; and
  • do not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt.

Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated or amortized often will have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements. Other companies in the industries in which we operate may calculate EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. In addition, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT do not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT are not measurements of our financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity. Given these limitations, we rely primarily on our U.S. GAAP results and use EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT only as a supplemental measure of our financial performance.

Use of Indicative Net Asset Value Data

The Company uses indicative net asset value as an additional method for considering the value of the Company’s assets, and we believe that this information can be helpful to investors. Please note, however, that the indicative net asset value does not represent the market price at which the units trade. Accordingly, data regarding indicative net asset value is of limited use and should not be considered in isolation.

The Company's depositary units are not redeemable, which means that investors have no right or ability to obtain from the Company the indicative net asset value of units that they own. Units may be bought and sold on The NASDAQ Global Select Market at prevailing market prices. Those prices may be higher or lower than the indicative net asset value of the units as calculated by management.
