CVR Refining Reports 2013 Second Quarter Results
  • 2013 second quarter cash distribution of $1.35 per common unit, bringing 2013 cumulative cash distributions to $2.93

SUGAR LAND, Texas, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CVR Refining, LP (NYSE: CVRR), a refiner and marketer of petroleum fuels, today announced second quarter 2013 net income of $339.2 million on net sales of $2,138.1 million, compared to net income of $259.5 million on net sales of $2,229.6 million for the 2012 second quarter.

For the first six months of 2013, net income was $614.6 million on net sales of $4,412.1 million, compared to net income of $222.2 million on net sales of $4,128.1 million for the first six months of 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, for the 2013 second quarter was $250.6 million compared to adjusted EBITDA of $379.6 million for the second quarter of 2012. Adjusted EBITDA for the first six months of 2013 was $560.5 million compared to $531.7 million for the same time period in 2012.

Operating income for the second quarter of 2013 was $229.1 million, compared to operating income of $239.1 million for the same quarter of 2012. Year-to-date, operating income was $564.7 million, compared to operating income of $367.7 million for the first six months of 2012.

"CVR Refining turned in solid financial results for the 2013 second quarter," said Jack Lipinski, chief executive officer. "Like other refiners, we are now seeing the impact of narrowing crack spreads and the higher cost of Renewable Identification Numbers, or RINs, needed to comply with the flawed U.S. Federal Renewable Fuel Standard. At the same time, the Coffeyville and Wynnewood refineries had strong operational performance with record level throughput rates at Wynnewood for the quarter.

"Last week we announced a $1.35 per common unit cash distribution, which brings our total cash distributions to $2.93 per common unit," Lipinski said. "We remain focused on creating long-term value for our unitholders.

"Moving forward, we believe we are seeing the trough in Brent-WTI spreads as additional Midcontinent pipelines come into operation," he continued. "Our view is the Brent-WTI spread will once again widen as additional shale-based crude is produced."

Consolidated Operations

Both refineries had strong operational performance in the 2013 second quarter. Throughputs of crude oil and all other feedstocks and blendstocks totaled 201,925 barrels per day (bpd) in the 2013 second quarter, which includes record throughput rates at the Wynnewood refinery. Throughputs of crude oil and all other feedstocks and blendstocks for both refineries totaled 199,501 bpd for the same period in 2012.

Refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact per crude oil throughput barrel, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $19.18 in the second quarter 2013 compared to $27.07 during the same period in 2012. Direct operating expenses per barrel sold, exclusive of depreciation and amortization, for the 2013 second quarter was $4.60, compared to $3.81 in the second quarter of 2012.

Coffeyville Refinery

The Coffeyville refinery reported second quarter 2013 gross profit of $163.8 million, compared to a gross profit of $165.7 million for the second quarter of 2012. Second quarter 2013 crude oil throughput totaled 117,265 bpd, compared to 121,325 bpd in the second quarter of 2012. Refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact per crude oil throughput barrel for the second quarter of 2013 was $20.30, compared to $28.02 for the same period in 2012. Direct operating expenses per barrel sold for the 2013 second quarter was $4.37, compared to direct operating expenses per barrel sold of $3.69 for the 2012 second quarter.

Wynnewood Refinery

The Wynnewood refinery had a second quarter 2013 gross profit of $85.8 million compared to a gross profit of $99.3 million for the second quarter of 2012. Second quarter 2013 crude oil throughput totaled a record 75,936 bpd, compared to 69,046 bpd for the second quarter of 2012. Refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact per crude oil throughput barrel for the second quarter of 2013 was $17.34, compared to $25.23 for the 2012 second quarter. Direct operating expenses per barrel sold for the second quarter of 2013 was $4.97, compared to $4.02 for the 2012 second quarter.

Distributions

On July 26, 2013, CVR Refining declared a cash distribution of $1.35 per common unit for the second quarter of 2013. The distribution, as set by the board of CVR Refining GP, LLC, the general partner of CVR Refining, will be paid on Aug. 14, 2013, to unitholders of record on Aug. 7, 2013.

CVR Refining's second quarter cash distribution brings the cumulative cash distributions paid or declared for the first six months of 2013 to $2.93 per common unit.

CVR Refining also updated its 2013 full year distribution outlook to $4.10 to $4.80 per common unit. The updated outlook is a result of current market conditions, primarily the decrease in the Group 3 2-1-1 crack spread, as well as increased RINs expense and a shutdown of the fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCCU) at the Coffeyville refinery. The company expects the FCCU to be offline for approximately 30 days in the 2013 third quarter. The unit is expected to return to full rates by the third week of August. Total crude throughput for the Coffeyville and Wynnewood refineries in the 2013 third quarter is expected to be between 170,000 bpd and 180,000 bpd.

** Reflective of net income per common unit since closing the Partnership's initial public offering ("Offering") on January 23, 2013. The Partnership has omitted net income per unit for 2012 because the Partnership operated under a different capital structure prior to the closing of the Offering and, as a result, the per unit data would not be meaningful to investors. Based upon net income for the six months ended June 30, 2013, net income per common unit would have been $4.16 per common unit.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our actual results in accordance with GAAP for the applicable periods, the Partnership also uses the non-GAAP measures discussed below, 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 Partnership's financial performance for the applicable periods and are indicators management believes are relevant and useful for planning and forecasting future periods.

Refining margin per crude oil throughput barrel is a measurement calculated as the difference between 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 our refineries' performance as a general indication of the amount above our cost of product sold that we 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 Statement of Operations. Our calculation of refining margin may differ from similar calculations of other companies in our 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 our 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 net sales and cost of product sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization) adjusted for FIFO impacts. Refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact is a non-GAAP measure that we believe is important to investors in evaluating our refineries' performance as a general indication of the amount above our cost of product sold (taking into account the impact of our utilization of FIFO) that we are able to sell refined products. Our calculation of refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact may differ from calculations of other companies in our industry, thereby limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. Under our FIFO accounting method, changes in crude oil prices can cause fluctuations in the inventory valuation of our crude oil, work in process and finished goods, thereby resulting in favorable FIFO impacts when crude oil prices increase and unfavorable FIFO impacts when crude oil prices decrease.

Gross profit is calculated as the difference between net sales, cost of product sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization), direct operating expenses (exclusive of depreciation and amortization), major scheduled turnaround expenses and depreciation and amortization.  Gross profit per throughput barrel is calculated as gross profit as derived above divided by our refineries' crude oil throughput volumes for the respective periods presented. Gross profit is a non-GAAP measure that should not be substituted for operating income. Management believes it is important to investors in evaluating our refineries' performance and our ongoing operating results. Our calculation of gross profit may differ from similar calculations of other companies in our industry, thereby limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA represents net income 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 FIFO impacts (favorable) unfavorable; share-based compensation, non-cash; major scheduled turnaround expenses; loss on disposition of fixed assets; unrealized gains and losses on derivatives; loss on extinguishment of debt and expenses associated with the Gary-Williams acquisition. We present Adjusted EBITDA because it is the starting point for our available cash for distribution. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized terms under GAAP and should not be substituted for net income or cash flow from operations. Management believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA enables investors to better understand our ability to make distributions to our common unitholders, evaluate our ongoing operating results and allows for greater transparency in reviewing our overall financial, operational and economic performance. EBTIDA and Adjusted EBITDA presented by other companies may not be comparable to our presentation, since each company may define these terms differently. Below is a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and EBITDA to Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012:

Available cash for distribution is not a recognized term under GAAP. Available cash should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income or operating income, as a measure of operating performance. In addition, available cash for distribution is not presented as, and should not be considered an alternative to cash flows from operations or as a measure of liquidity. Available cash as reported by the Partnership may not be comparable to similarly title measures of other entities; thereby limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

The Partnership announced a cash distribution of $1.35 per common unit for second quarter of 2013. The distribution was based on the Partnership's available cash, which equaled Adjusted EBITDA reduced for cash needed for (i) debt service; (ii) reserves for environmental and maintenance capital expenditures; (iii) reserves for future major scheduled turnaround expenses and, to the extent applicable, (iv) reserves for future operating or capital needs that the board of directors of our general partner deems necessary or appropriate, if any. Available cash for distributions may be increased by previously established cash reserves, if any, at the discretion of the board of directors of our general partner. Actual distributions are set by the board of directors of our general partner.  The board of directors of our general partner may modify our cash distribution policy at any time, and our partnership agreement does not require us to make distributions at all.

Derivatives Summary. To reduce the basis risk between the price of products for Group 3 and that of the NYMEX associated with selling forward derivative contracts for NYMEX crack spreads, we may enter into basis swap positions to lock the price difference. If the difference between the price of products on the NYMEX and Group 3 (or some other price benchmark as we may deem appropriate) is different than the value contracted in the swap, then we will receive from or owe to the counterparty the difference on each unit of product contracted in the swap, thereby completing the locking of our margin. From time to time the Partnership holds various NYMEX positions through a third-party clearing house. In addition, the Partnership enters into commodity swap contracts. The physical volumes are not exchanged and these contracts are net settled with cash.

The table below summarizes our open commodity derivatives positions as of June 30, 2013. The positions are primarily in the form of 'crack spread' swap agreements with financial counterparties, wherein the Partnership will receive the fixed prices noted below.
