HOUSTON, Aug. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Par Pacific Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: PARR) (“Par Pacific” or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Second Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Net Income of $28.2 million, or $0.56 per diluted share
  • Adjusted Net Income of $22.9 million, or $0.45 per diluted share
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $69.0 million
  • Net cash provided by operations of $81.0 million
  • Record logistics and retail segment profitability
  • Record refining throughput of 172,900 bpd
  • Lowest refining production costs per barrel driven by 99%+ operational availability
  • Hawaii diesel hydrotreater (DHT) unit start-up in August 2019
  • Net debt to total capitalization improved from 52% at March 31, 2019 to 46% at June 30, 2019

Par Pacific reported net income of $28.2 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to $16.2 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, for the same quarter in 2018. Second quarter 2019 Adjusted Net Income was $22.9 million, compared to $14.5 million in the second quarter of 2018. Second quarter 2019 Adjusted EBITDA was $69.0 million, compared to $37.5 million in the second quarter of 2018. A reconciliation of reported non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures can be found in the tables accompanying this news release.

“Record financial and operating results in the second quarter continue to demonstrate the combined earnings power and balance of our businesses after our recent acquisitions,” said William Pate, Par Pacific's President and Chief Executive Officer. “Reliable and safe operations enabled the business to generate significant free cash flow and reduce indebtedness in the quarter.”

Refining

The Refining segment reported operating income of $33.2 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $27.1 million in the second quarter of 2018. Adjusted Gross Margin for the Refining segment was $98.7 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $63.6 million in the second quarter of 2018.

Refining Adjusted EBITDA was $43.3 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $28.9 million in the second quarter of 2018.

Hawaii

The 4-1-2-1 Singapore Crack Spread was $6.22 per barrel in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $6.42 per barrel in the second quarter of 2018. The Hawaii refinery’s throughput in the second quarter of 2019, across our two locations, was 116 thousand barrels per day (Mbpd). This compares to throughput of 74 Mbpd for the same quarter in 2018. Production costs were $2.82 per throughput barrel in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $3.55 per throughput barrel in the same period in 2018.

This month, the DHT is starting up ahead of schedule and under budget, and is expected to increase distillate production by 5-7 Mbpd when fully operational. This unit allows us to meet growing jet fuel demand in Hawaii and further positions us to benefit from IMO 2020.

Washington

The Pacific Northwest 5-2-2-1 Index averaged $17.14 per barrel in the second quarter of 2019. The Washington refinery’s throughput was 39 Mbpd and production costs were $4.42 per throughput barrel in the second quarter of 2019.

Wyoming

During the second quarter of 2019, the Wyoming 3-2-1 Index averaged $28.89 per barrel, compared to $24.99 per barrel in the second quarter of 2018. The Wyoming refinery’s throughput was 18 Mbpd in the second quarter of 2019. This compares to 17 Mbpd in the second quarter of 2018. Production costs were $5.58 per throughput barrel in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $6.14 per throughput barrel in the same period in 2018. The Wyoming refinery’s Adjusted Gross Margin of $16.78 per throughput barrel reflects a negative FIFO impact of approximately $1.9 million, or $1.16 per throughput barrel, in the second quarter of 2019.

Retail

The Retail segment reported operating income of $12.0 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $7.9 million in the second quarter of 2018. Adjusted Gross Margin for the Retail segment was $31.0 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $26.5 million in the same quarter of 2018.

Retail Adjusted EBITDA was $14.6 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $10.6 million in the second quarter of 2018. The Retail segment reported sales volumes of 31.8 million gallons in the second quarter of 2019, compared to 31.5 million gallons in the same quarter of 2018.

Logistics

The Logistics segment reported record operating income of $16.4 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $8.7 million in the second quarter of 2018. Adjusted Gross Margin for the Logistics segment was $23.4 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $12.7 million in the same quarter of 2018.

Logistics Adjusted EBITDA was $20.4 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $10.3 million in the second quarter of 2018.

In Hawaii, the previously announced pipeline tie-in project has been completed and enables enhanced commercial and operational flexibility between the Par East and West facilities.

Laramie Energy

Equity earnings from Laramie in the second quarter of 2019 were $0.5 million, compared to equity losses of $2.4 million in the second quarter of 2018. Laramie’s total net loss was $2.6 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to a net loss of $8.8 million in the second quarter of 2018. Laramie’s total Adjusted EBITDAX was $14.2 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $22.9 million in the second quarter of 2018.

Liquidity

Net cash provided by operations totaled $81.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, compared to $18.7 million during the three months ended June 30, 2018. At June 30, 2019, Par Pacific’s cash balance totaled $106.2 million, long-term debt totaled $644.1 million, and total liquidity was $175.0 million.

________________________________________

  1. Previously reported logistics pipeline throughput volumes have been removed from the Operating Statistics table post-closing of the Washington refinery acquisition as we have determined that pipeline throughput is no longer a relevant indicator of logistics segment profitability given the low weighting of pipeline movements at the Washington refinery. Operating income (loss) per bbl has also been removed from the table because we do not believe it to be an indicative measure of our refineries’ profitability.
  2. Feedstocks throughput and sales volumes per day for the Washington refinery for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 are calculated based on the 91 and 171-day periods for which we owned the Washington refinery in 2019, respectively. As such, the amounts for the total refining segment represent the sum of the Hawaii and Wyoming refineries’ throughput or sales volumes averaged over the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 plus the Washington refinery’s throughput or sales volumes averaged over the periods from April 1, 2019 to June 30, 2019 and January 11, 2019 to June 30, 2019, respectively. The 2018 amounts for the total refining segment represent the sum of the Hawaii and Wyoming refineries’ throughput or sales volumes averaged over the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.
  3. Please see discussion of Adjusted Gross Margin below. We calculate Adjusted Gross Margin per barrel by dividing Adjusted Gross Margin by total refining throughput. Adjusted Gross Margin for our Washington refinery is determined under the last-in, first-out (“LIFO”) inventory costing method. Adjusted Gross Margin for our other refineries is determined under the under the first-in, first-out (“FIFO”) inventory costing method.
  4. Management uses production costs per barrel to evaluate performance and compare efficiency to other companies in the industry. There is a variety of ways to calculate production costs per barrel; different companies within the industry calculate it in different ways. We calculate production costs per barrel by dividing all direct production costs, which include the costs to run the refinery including personnel costs, repair and maintenance costs, insurance, utilities, and other miscellaneous costs, by total refining throughput. Our production costs are included in Operating expense (excluding depreciation) on our condensed consolidated statement of operations, which also includes costs related to our bulk marketing operations.
  5. The profitability of our Hawaii business is heavily influenced by crack spreads in the Singapore market. This market reflects the closest liquid market alternative to source refined products for Hawaii. We believe the 4-1-2-1 Singapore crack spread (or four barrels of Brent crude oil converted into one barrel of gasoline, two barrels of distillate (diesel and jet fuel) and one barrel of fuel oil) best reflects a market indicator for our Hawaii operations.
  6. We believe the Pacific Northwest 5-2-2-1 Index is the best market indicator for our operations in Tacoma, Washington. The Pacific Northwest 5-2-2-1 Index is computed by taking two parts gasoline (sub-octane), two parts middle distillates (ULSD and jet fuel), and one part fuel oil as created from a barrel of Alaskan North Slope crude. The 2019 prices for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 represent the price averaged over the periods from April 1, 2019 to June 30, 2019 and January 11, 2019 to June 30, 2019, respectively.
  7. The profitability of our Wyoming refinery is heavily influenced by crack spreads in nearby markets. We believe the Wyoming 3-2-1 Index is the best market indicator for our operations in Wyoming. The Wyoming 3-2-1 Index is computed by taking two parts gasoline and one part distillate (ULSD) as created from three barrels of West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil (“WTI”). Pricing is based 50% on applicable product pricing in Rapid City, South Dakota, and 50% on applicable product pricing in Denver, Colorado.
  8. Retail sales volumes for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 include the 91 days and 100 days of retail sales volumes from Northwest Retail since its acquisition on March 23, 2018, respectively. The 2019 amounts represent the sum of the Hawaii and Northwest Retail sales volumes for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019.

Non-GAAP Performance Measures

Management uses certain financial measures to evaluate our operating performance that are considered non-GAAP financial measures. These measures 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.

Adjusted Gross Margin

Adjusted Gross Margin is defined as (i) operating income (loss) plus operating expense (excluding depreciation), impairment expense, inventory valuation adjustments (which adjusts for timing differences to reflect the economics of our inventory financing agreements, including lower of cost or net realizable value adjustments, the impact of the embedded derivative repurchase obligations, and purchase price allocation adjustments), depreciation, depletion, and amortization (“DD&A”), RINs loss (gain) in excess of net obligation (see definition below), and unrealized losses (gains) on derivatives or (ii) revenues less cost of revenues (excluding depreciation) plus inventory valuation adjustments and unrealized losses (gains) on derivatives. We define cost of revenues (excluding depreciation) as the hydrocarbon-related costs of inventory sold, transportation costs of delivering product to customers, crude oil consumed in the refining process, costs to satisfy our Renewable Identification Numbers (“RINs”) obligations, and certain hydrocarbon fees and taxes. Cost of revenues (excluding depreciation) also includes the unrealized gains (losses) on derivatives and inventory valuation adjustments that we exclude from Adjusted Gross Margin.

Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2018, Adjusted Net Income (loss) excludes RINs losses (gains) recorded in excess of our net RINs obligation (“RINs loss (gain) in excess of net obligation”). Our RINs obligations to comply with Renewable Fuels Standards  are recorded as liabilities and measured at fair value as of the end of the reporting period. Our RINs assets, which include RINS purchased in on the open market and RINs generated by blending biofuels as part of our refining process, are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value (NRV) as of the end of the reporting period. During periods of rising RINs market prices, we recognize unrealized losses associated with the increase in the fair value of our RINs liabilities. We do not adjust the carrying value of our RINs assets because such assets are stated at the lower of cost or NRV under GAAP. This adjustment represents the income statement effect of reflecting our RINs liability on a net basis, as the settlement of any open obligation would first be offset by RINs assets rather than purchasing such RINs obligations at market prices. We have recast the non-GAAP information for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 to conform to the current period presentation.

Management believes Adjusted Gross Margin is an important measure of operating performance and uses Adjusted Gross Margin per barrel to evaluate operating performance and compare profitability to other companies in the industry and to industry benchmarks. Management believes Adjusted Gross Margin provides useful information to investors because it eliminates the gross impact of volatile commodity prices and adjusts for certain non-cash items and timing differences created by our inventory financing agreements and lower of cost or net realizable value adjustments to demonstrate the earnings potential of the business before other fixed and variable costs, which are reported separately in Operating expense (excluding depreciation) and Depreciation, depletion, and amortization.

Adjusted Gross Margin should not be considered an alternative to operating income (loss), net cash flows from operating activities, or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted Gross Margin presented by other companies may not be comparable to our presentation since each company may define this term differently as they may include other manufacturing costs and depreciation expense in cost of revenues.

The following tables present a reconciliation of Adjusted Gross Margin to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, operating income (loss), on a historical basis, for selected segments, for the periods indicated (in thousands):

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) is defined as Net income (loss) excluding changes in the value of contingent consideration and common stock warrants, acquisition and integration costs, unrealized (gains) losses on derivatives, debt extinguishment and commitment costs, release of tax valuation allowance, inventory valuation adjustment, severance costs, impairment expense,  (gain) loss on sale of assets and Par’s share of Laramie Energy’s unrealized loss (gain) on derivatives. Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2018, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) also excludes RINs loss (gain) in excess of net obligation (as defined in the Adjusted Gross Margin section above).

Adjusted EBITDA is Adjusted Net Income (Loss) excluding interest expense and financing costs, taxes, DD&A, and equity losses (earnings) from Laramie Energy, excluding Par’s share of Laramie’s unrealized loss (gain) on derivatives. We have recast the non-GAAP information for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 to conform to the current period presentation.

We believe Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA are useful supplemental financial measures that allow investors to assess:

  • The financial performance of our assets without regard to financing methods, capital structure, or historical cost basis;
  • The ability of our assets to generate cash to pay interest on our indebtedness; and
  • Our operating performance and return on invested capital as compared to other companies without regard to financing methods and capital structure.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for, operating income (loss), net income (loss), cash flows provided by operating, investing, and financing activities, or other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA presented by other companies may not be comparable to our presentation as other companies may define these terms differently.

The following table presents a reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, net income (loss), on a historical basis for the periods indicated (in thousands):

 Adjusted EBITDA by Segment

Adjusted EBITDA by segment is defined as Operating income (loss) by segment excluding depreciation, depletion, and amortization expense, inventory valuation adjustment, unrealized  loss (gain) on derivatives, and severance costs. Beginning in the fourth quarter of  2018, Adjusted EBITDA by segment also excludes RINs loss (gain) in excess of net obligation (as defined in the Adjusted Gross Margin section above). We have recast the non-GAAP information for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 to conform to the current period presentation. Adjusted EBITDA for the Corporate and Other segment also includes Other income, net, which is presented below operating income (loss) on our consolidated statements of operations.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA by segment is a useful supplemental financial measure to evaluate the economic performance of our segments without regard to financing methods, capital structure, or historical cost basis. The following table presents a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, operating income (loss), on a historical basis, for selected segments, for the periods indicated (in thousands):

Laramie Energy Adjusted EBITDAX

Adjusted EBITDAX is defined as net income (loss) excluding commodity derivative loss (gain), losses on settled derivative instruments, interest expense, non-cash preferred dividend, depreciation, depletion, amortization, and accretion, exploration and geological and geographical expense, bonus accrual, equity-based compensation expense, loss (gain) on disposal of assets, pipeline (payment) deficiency accrual, and expired acreage (non-cash). We believe Adjusted EBITDAX is a useful supplemental financial measure to evaluate the economic and operational performance of exploration and production companies such as Laramie Energy.
