Marathon Petroleum Corporation Reports Second-Quarter 2016 Results

  • Reported second-quarter earnings of $801 million, or $1.51 per diluted share, including a net benefit of $0.44 per diluted share primarily related to reversal of the company's lower of cost or market inventory valuation reserve
  • Achieved record second-quarter segment income at Speedway
  • Increased quarterly dividend by 12.5 percent, to $0.36 per share

FINDLAY, Ohio, July 28, 2016 - Marathon Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: MPC) today reported 2016 second-quarter earnings of $801 million, or $1.51 per diluted share, compared with $826 million, or $1.51 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2015. Second-quarter 2016 earnings include a benefit of $0.47 per diluted share related to the reversal of the company's lower of cost or market (LCM) inventory valuation reserve due to increased refined product prices during the quarter. Earnings also include a charge of $0.03 per diluted share related to an impairment of an equity method investment held by MPC's sponsored master limited partnership, MPLX LP (NYSE: MPLX).

"All segments of the business performed well in the second quarter," said Gary R. Heminger, MPC chairman, president and chief executive officer. "Earnings benefited from improving crack spreads, robust product demand entering the summer driving and asphalt season, strong retail margins, and the inclusion of MarkWest in our consolidated results. The efficiency and flexibility of our integrated retail, logistics and refining system drives the diversified earnings power of the business, and we remain confident in our ability to deliver long-term value for our shareholders."

Speedway continued its outstanding performance with second-quarter segment income of $193 million. Even before the LCM adjustment discussed below, Speedway's segment income set a second-quarter record. In addition to higher light-product sales volumes and margins, the business delivered higher merchandise margins in the quarter. This improvement is consistent with its strategy to drive marketing enhancement opportunities. "We are pleased with our progress to realize synergies across the Speedway network earlier than originally planned and believe this will be a continuing source of value to the business," Heminger said.

Speedway provides significant and growing stable cash flow, complementing MPC's integrated refining and distribution network. "Speedway is MPC's most ratable distribution channel, provides a solid base to enhance overall supply reliability and allows us to optimize our entire refining, pipeline and terminal operations," Heminger said.

The midstream segment contributed $201 million of segment income in the second quarter. MPLX, which is reported in MPC's midstream segment, delivered solid results during the quarter and remains on target to achieve its 2016 distribution growth guidance without the need for additional dropdowns from MPC during the year. MPLX expanded its midstream presence in the Southwest with the completion of its Hidalgo gas processing complex in the Delaware Basin, where utilization is exceeding initial expectations. Construction of the Cornerstone Pipeline is also progressing as planned, with completion expected in the fourth quarter. The Cornerstone Pipeline is designed to provide MPC's Canton, Ohio, refinery with a direct supply of condensate out of the Marcellus and Utica regions and to supply natural gasoline to MPC's Midwest refineries.

"As commodity prices recover, optimism is growing among MPLX's producer customers, and with world-class midstream assets located in some of the best resource plays in the country, the partnership is well-positioned to capitalize on an exceptional set of opportunities along the entire hydrocarbon value chain," Heminger said.

The refining and marketing segment delivered strong results despite less favorable operating and market conditions during the quarter. "Our integrated seven-refinery and extensive logistics network allows us to capture advantaged feedstock and other raw materials, as well as enhanced price realizations through our refined product distribution system," Heminger said. "Our unique asset mix and flexibility position us to optimize operations even during disruptions such as those caused in the second quarter by the Canadian wildfires and refinery outages."

During the second quarter, the company returned $221 million to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases. In addition, on July 27, the MPC board of directors announced a 12.5 percent increase in the quarterly dividend, to $0.36 per share. "The 29 percent compound annual growth rate in our dividend since MPC became an independent company demonstrates our continuing confidence in the cash-flow generation of the business. It also demonstrates our long-term focus on capital returns while maintaining an investment-grade credit profile and strong liquidity through the refining cycle," Heminger said.

"We remain encouraged by the long-term prospects of this business and the value proposition for our investors," Heminger said.

(a)       In 2016, segment reporting was revised in connection with the contribution of MPC's inland marine business to MPLX. The results of the inland marine business are now presented in the Midstream segment. Previously, these results were reported in the Refining & Marketing segment. Comparable prior period information has been recast to reflect this revised segment presentation.

Refining & Marketing

Refining & Marketing segment income from operations was $1.08 billion in the quarter, compared with $1.18 billion in the same quarter of 2015. The second-quarter 2016 results include a $360 million non-cash benefit related to the reversal of the company's LCM reserve. Excluding the LCM benefit, the decrease in quarter-over-quarter results was mainly the result of lower crack spreads, primarily in the Gulf Coast. The Chicago and Gulf Coast Light Louisiana Sweet 6-3-2-1 blended crack spread decreased from $10.24 per barrel in the second quarter of 2015 to $7.66 per barrel in the second quarter of 2016.

Speedway

Speedway segment income from operations was $193 million in the second quarter of 2016, compared with $127 million in the second quarter of 2015. The second-quarter 2016 results include a $25 million non-cash benefit related to the reversal of the company's LCM reserve. Excluding the LCM benefit, the increase in segment income was primarily due to higher light product and merchandise margins. Speedway's light product margin increased to 15.49 cents per gallon in the second quarter of 2016 from 13.51 cents per gallon in the second quarter of 2015.

Midstream

Midstream segment income from operations, which includes MPLX as well as other related operations, was $201 million in the second quarter of 2016, compared with $103 million for the second quarter of 2015. The increase was primarily due to the inclusion of MarkWest's operating results following the merger with MPLX on Dec. 4, 2015, as well as the earnings from new and existing pipeline and marine equity investments. Midstream segment results exclude the impairment charge discussed below.

Items Not Allocated to Segments

Corporate and other unallocated expenses of $67 million in the second quarter of 2016 were $8 million lower than the second quarter of 2015 largely due to a reduction in employee benefit expenses.

Impairments not allocated to segments totaled $90 million, of which $89 million related to an equity method investment held by MPLX, our consolidated subsidiary.

Strong Financial Position and Liquidity

On June 30, 2016, the company had $1.8 billion of cash and cash equivalents, $2.5 billion available under a revolving credit agreement and approximately $758 million available under its $1 billion trade receivables securitization facility.

On July 20, 2016, we extended our trade receivables securitization facility for a new three-year term and reduced the capacity from $1 billion to $750 million to reflect the lower refined-product price environment. We also replaced our existing bank revolving credit facility with a four-year $2.5 billion bank revolving credit facility and a 364-day $1 billion bank revolving credit facility.

The company's liquidity should provide it with sufficient flexibility to meet its day-to-day operational needs and continue its balanced approach to investing in the business and returning capital to shareholders.
