Marathon Petroleum Corp. reports second-quarter 2018 results

FINDLAY, Ohio, July 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Reported second-quarter earnings of $1.06 billion, or $2.27 per diluted share, and income from operations of $1.71 billion
  • Refining & Marketing segment income from operations of $1.03 billion supported by record crude throughput volumes
  • Midstream segment income from operations of $617 million, achieving record gathered, processed and fractionated volumes as well as pipeline throughputs
  • Disciplined capital strategy enabled $1.1 billion return of capital to shareholders, including $885 million of share repurchases
  • Andeavor combination on track for closing in the second half of 2018; multiple milestones achieved

Marathon Petroleum Corp. (NYSE: MPC) today reported 2018 second-quarter earnings of $1.06 billion, or $2.27 per diluted share. This compares with $483 million, or $0.93 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017.

"We delivered an outstanding quarter," said Gary R. Heminger, chairman and chief executive officer. "Our ability to execute and capture opportunities in a volatile commodity environment demonstrated the power of our integrated business model and drove extraordinary results. Looking forward, we remain very optimistic about the prospects for our business given strong global demand, wider crude differentials, and the changing dynamics of the low-sulfur fuel market.

"Our team has made significant progress towards completing the combination between MPC and Andeavor. There are tremendous benefits from merging these two businesses and we remain confident in our ability to generate incremental cash flow and create substantial long-term value for our shareholders."

MPC recently announced the expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act, and continues to advance the SEC filings necessary to obtain the appropriate approvals for the transaction from both MPC and Andeavor shareholders. The company expects to close the transaction in the second half of 2018, subject to other regulatory and customary closing conditions.

During the quarter, MPC returned $1.1 billion to MPC shareholders, including $885 million in share repurchases. MPC remains committed to its disciplined capital strategy and returning capital beyond the needs of the business in a manner consistent with maintaining the company's current investment-grade credit profile.

Segment Results

MPC's income from operations was $1.71 billion in the second quarter of 2018, compared with $982 million in the second quarter of 2017, driven by strong contributions from the Refining and Marketing (R&M) and Midstream segments, partially offset by lower earnings in the Speedway segment.

As a result, we reclassified prior period amounts from Selling, general and administrative expenses to Net interest and other financial costs to conform to current period presentation.

 

Refining & Marketing

R&M segment income from operations was $1.03 billion, compared with $562 million in the second quarter of 2017. The year-over-year increase in second-quarter R&M segment results was primarily driven by positive Midwest and Gulf Coast crack spreads on an ex-RIN basis as well as wider WCS- and WTI- based crude differentials. These favorable effects more than offset the $232 million reduction in R&M segment results associated with the Feb. 1, 2018, dropdown transaction. Prior period R&M segment results were not adjusted to reflect these businesses being included in the Midstream segment effective Feb. 1, 2018.

Refinery utilization was 99.9 percent during the quarter resulting in record crude throughput of 1.9 million barrels per day. The U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) and Chicago LLS blended 6-3-2-1 crack spread on an ex-RIN basis was $6.98 per barrel in the second quarter of 2018 as compared to $5.71 per barrel in the second quarter of 2017. These crack spreads reflect blended 6-3-2-1 crack spreads of $9.14 and $9.18 per barrel for the second quarter of 2018 and 2017, respectively, less RIN crack adjustments of $2.16 and $3.46 per barrel for the second quarter of 2018 and 2017, respectively.

For the third quarter of 2018, MPC is expecting total throughput volumes of approximately 2 million barrels per day and total direct operating costs of $7 per barrel. Sour crude is estimated to make up 53 percent of MPC's crude oil throughput and WTI-priced crudes are estimated at 32 percent.

Midstream

Midstream segment income from operations, which largely reflects MPLX, was $617 million, compared with $332 million in the second quarter of 2017. The results for the quarter include $232 million from the recent drop of refining logistics and fuels distribution services to MPLX. Prior period Midstream segment results do not reflect the impact of these businesses. Strong second-quarter Midstream segment results also benefited from record gathered, processed and fractionated volumes as well as pipeline throughput volumes.

MPLX continues to execute on its organic growth plan in key regions including the Marcellus/Utica, Permian, and STACK. In July, operations commenced at both the 75 million cubic feet per day (mmcf/d) Omega gas processing plant in the STACK and the 200 mmcf/d Majorsville 7 gas processing plant in the Marcellus. During the quarter, the partnership completed major work on both the Ozark and Wood River-to-Patoka pipeline systems expanding capacity to 345,000 barrels per day and improving MPC's ability to source advantaged crude.

Speedway

Speedway segment income from operations was $159 million, compared with $238 million in the second quarter of 2017. The year-over-year decrease in second-quarter segment results was primarily related to lower light product margins and higher expenses. Speedway's gasoline and distillate margin decreased to 16.45 cents per gallon in the second quarter of 2018 compared with 18.35 cents per gallon in the second quarter of 2017 primarily due to the effects of rising crude oil prices.

Expenses increased $24 million year-over-year, primarily due to higher labor and benefit costs. Depreciation was $8 million higher year-over-year, primarily due to increased investment in the business. The $6 million gain on the sale of assets in the second quarter of 2017 also contributed to the change in segment earnings.

For the quarter, same-store merchandise sales increased by 2.9 percent year-over-year and same-store gasoline sales volume decreased by 2.6 percent year-over-year.

As announced in April, Speedway signed an agreement to purchase 78 locations in Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo, New York. This acquisition will expand Speedway's network in key growth markets and is anticipated to close in the third quarter of 2018. Speedway operated 2,744 convenience stores at the end of the quarter, a net increase of 15 stores from the end of the same period last year.

Items Not Allocated to Segments

Corporate and other unallocated expenses were $90 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared with $150 million in the second quarter of 2017. Second quarter 2018 included $10 million of transaction costs related to the pending combination with Andeavor. Second quarter 2017 included $86 million of litigation-related expense and a $19 million gain on asset liquidations related to a cancelled project.

Strong Financial Position and Liquidity

On June 30, 2018, the company had $5 billion of cash and cash equivalents; $2.5 billion available under a revolving credit agreement; $1 billion available under a 364-day bank revolving credit facility; and full availability under its $750 million trade receivables securitization facility. The company's liquidity should provide it with sufficient flexibility to meet its day-to-day operational needs.

(a) We adopted Accounting Standards Update 2014-09, Revenue - Revenue from contracts with customers, as of Jan. 1, 2018, and elected to report certain taxes on a net basis. We applied the standard using the modified retrospective method and, therefore, comparative information continues to reflect certain taxes on a gross basis.

(b) We adopted Accounting Standards Update 2017-07, Retirement Benefits Presentation of Pension and Postretirement Cost, as of Jan. 1, 2018, and applied the standard retrospectively. As a result, we reclassified prior period amounts from Selling, general and administrative expenses to Net interest and other financial costs to conform to current period presentation.

(a) On Feb. 1, 2018, we contributed certain refining logistics assets and fuels distribution services to MPLX. The results of these businesses are reported in the Midstream segment prospectively from Feb. 1, resulting in a net increase of $232 million and $413 million to Midstream segment results and a net decrease to Refining & Marketing segment results of the same amounts in the second quarter and first half of 2018, respectively. No effect was given to prior periods as these entities were not considered businesses prior to Feb. 1, 2018.

(b) We adopted Accounting Standards Update 2017-07, Retirement Benefits Presentation of Pension and Postretirement Cost, as of Jan. 1, 2018, and applied the standard retrospectively. As a result, we reclassified prior period amounts from Selling, general and administrative expenses to Net interest and other financial costs to conform to current period presentation.

(a) Segment EBITDA represents segment earnings before interest and financing costs, interest income, income taxes and depreciation and amortization expense. Segment EBITDA is used by some investors and analysts to analyze and compare companies on the basis of operating performance. Segment EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income attributable to MPC, income before income taxes, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Segment EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other entities.

(b) On Feb. 1, 2018, we contributed certain refining logistics assets and fuels distribution services to MPLX. The results of these businesses are reported in the Midstream segment prospectively from Feb. 1, resulting in a net increase of $232 million and $413 million to Midstream segment results and a net decrease to Refining & Marketing segment results of the same amounts in the second quarter and first half of 2018, respectively. No effect was given to prior periods as these entities were not considered businesses prior to Feb. 1, 2018.

(b) Includes fees paid to MPLX for various midstream services. MPLX's results are reported in MPC's Midstream segment.

(c) Refining & Marketing margin is defined as sales revenue less cost of refinery inputs and purchased products, excluding any LCM inventory market adjustment. We believe this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors and analysts to assess our ongoing financial performance because, when reconciled to its most comparable GAAP measure, it provides improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that we believe are not indicative of our core operating performance and that may obscure our underlying business results and trends. This measure should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, and our calculations thereof may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
