HollyFrontier Corporation Reports Quarterly Results and Announces Regular Cash Dividend

08/06/2020
  • Reported net loss attributable to HollyFrontier stockholders of $(176.7) million, or $(1.09) per diluted share, and adjusted net loss of $(40.8) million, or $(0.25) per diluted share, for the second quarter
  • Reported EBITDA of $(46.2) million and adjusted EBITDA of $99.7 million for the second quarter
  • Returned $57.2 million to shareholders through dividends in the second quarter

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- HollyFrontier Corporation (NYSE:HFC) (“HollyFrontier” or the “Company”) today reported second quarter net loss attributable to HollyFrontier stockholders of $(176.7) million, or $(1.09) per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, compared to net income of $196.9 million, or $1.15 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

The second quarter results reflect special items that collectively decreased net income by a total of $135.9 million. On a pre-tax basis, these items include long-lived asset impairments at the Cheyenne Refinery and PCLI totaling $429.5 million and corporate restructuring, Cheyenne Refinery severance and integration charges totaling $5.4 million. These items were partially offset by a lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustment of $269.9 million and HollyFrontier's pro-rata share of Holly Energy Partners, L.P.’s gain on sales-type leases of $19.1 million. Excluding these items, net loss for the current quarter was $(40.8) million ($(0.25) per diluted share) compared to $372.3 million ($2.18 per diluted share) for the second quarter of 2019, which excludes certain items that collectively decreased net income by $175.4 million.

HollyFrontier’s President & CEO, Michael Jennings, commented, “During the second quarter, our focus remained on the safety of our employees, contractors and communities as we all continue to face the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite this challenging environment, HollyFrontier demonstrated its financial strength and we have taken prudent steps to preserve cash. Our strong balance sheet and the superior quality of our assets provides us with a competitive advantage through the cycle.

We are capitalizing on these strengths to continue growth in our renewables business. On June 1, we announced plans to convert the Cheyenne Refinery to renewable diesel production and to construct a pre-treatment unit which will provide feedstock flexibility for the previously announced renewable diesel unit at our Navajo Refinery. With the completion of these projects, HollyFrontier will become one of the largest producers of renewable diesel in the U.S., allowing us to capitalize on the increasing consumer demand for renewable fuels.”

The COVID-19 pandemic caused a decline in U.S. and global economic activity starting in the first quarter of 2020. This decrease reduced both volumes and unit margins across the Company's businesses, resulting in lower gross margins and earnings. Over the course of the second quarter, demand for transportation fuels and lubricants stabilized and showed incremental improvement late in the quarter as compared to the end of the first quarter of 2020.

The Refining segment reported adjusted EBITDA of $25.0 million compared to $556.1 million for the second quarter of 2019. This decrease was primarily due to weak demand for refined products, which resulted in lower utilization rates and weaker product margins across our refining system. Refinery gross margin for the second quarter of 2020 was $8.44 per produced barrel, a 57% decrease compared to $19.64 for the second quarter of 2019. Crude oil charge averaged 349,580 barrels per day (“BPD”) for the current quarter compared to 453,030 BPD for the second quarter 2019.

The Lubricants and Specialty Products segment reported adjusted EBITDA of $15.2 million, compared to $28.9 million in the second quarter 2019. This decrease was primarily due to global weakness in demand within the industrial and automotive end markets during the quarter.

Holly Energy Partners, L.P. (“HEP”) reported EBITDA of $112.5 million for the second quarter 2020 compared to $88.6 million in the second quarter of 2019. The second quarter of 2020 includes a gain on sales-type leases of $33.8 million

For the second quarter of 2020, net cash provided by operations totaled $119.2 million. During the period, HollyFrontier declared and paid a dividend of $0.35 per share to shareholders totaling $57.2 million. At June 30, 2020, the Company's cash and cash equivalents totaled $902.5 million, a $6.6 million decrease over cash and cash equivalents of $909.1 million at March 31, 2020. Additionally, the Company's consolidated debt was $2,480.7 million. The Company’s debt, exclusive of HEP debt, which is nonrecourse to HollyFrontier, was $994.1 million at June 30, 2020.

HollyFrontier also announced today that its Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly dividend of $0.35 per share. The dividend will be paid on September 2, 2020 to holders of record of common stock on August 17, 2020.

Segment Information

Our operations are organized into three reportable segments, Refining, Lubricants and Specialty Products and HEP. Our operations that are not included in the Refining, Lubricants and Specialty Products and HEP segments are included in Corporate and Other. Intersegment transactions are eliminated in our consolidated financial statements and are included in Eliminations. Corporate and Other and Eliminations are aggregated and presented under the Corporate, Other and Eliminations column.

The Refining segment includes the operations of our El Dorado, Tulsa, Navajo, Cheyenne and Woods Cross refineries and HollyFrontier Asphalt Company LLC (“HFC Asphalt”) (aggregated as a reportable segment). Refining activities involve the purchase and refining of crude oil and wholesale and branded marketing of refined products, such as gasoline, diesel fuel and jet fuel. These petroleum products are primarily marketed in the Mid-Continent, Southwest and Rocky Mountain regions of the United States. HFC Asphalt operates various terminals in Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma.

The Lubricants and Specialty Products segment involves Petro-Canada Lubricants Inc.’s (“PCLI”) production operations, located in Mississauga, Ontario, that include lubricant products such as base oils, white oils, specialty products and finished lubricants and the operations of our Petro-Canada Lubricants business that includes the marketing of products to both retail and wholesale outlets through a global sales network with locations in Canada, the United States, Europe and China. Additionally, the Lubricants and Specialty Products segment includes specialty lubricant products produced at our Tulsa refineries that are marketed throughout North America and are distributed in Central and South America, the operations of Red Giant Oil, one of the largest suppliers of locomotive engine oil in North America and the operations of Sonneborn, a producer of specialty hydrocarbon chemicals such as white oils, petrolatums and waxes with manufacturing facilities in the United States and Europe.

The HEP segment involves all of the operations of HEP, a consolidated variable interest entity, which owns and operates logistics assets consisting of petroleum product and crude oil pipelines, terminals, tankage, loading rack facilities and refinery processing units in the Mid-Continent, Southwest and Rocky Mountain regions of the United States. The HEP segment also includes a 75% interest in UNEV Pipeline, LLC (an HEP consolidated subsidiary), and a 50% ownership interest in each of Osage Pipeline Company, LLC, Cheyenne Pipeline LLC and Cushing Connect Pipeline & Terminal LLC. Revenues from the HEP segment are earned through transactions with unaffiliated parties for pipeline transportation, rental and terminalling operations as well as revenues relating to pipeline transportation services provided for our refining operations. Due to certain basis differences, our reported amounts for the HEP segment may not agree to amounts reported in HEP's periodic public filings.

Rack Back consists of the PCLI base oil production activities, by-product sales to third parties and intra-segment base oil sales to rack forward.

(2)

Rack Forward activities include the purchase of base oils from Rack Back and the blending, packaging, marketing and distribution and sales of finished lubricants and specialty products to third parties.

(3)

Intra-segment sales of Rack Back produced base oils to rack forward are eliminated under the “Eliminations” column.

 

Reconciliations to Amounts Reported Under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles

Reconciliations of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) and EBITDA excluding special items (“Adjusted EBITDA”) to amounts reported under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in financial statements.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, referred to as EBITDA, is calculated as net income (loss) attributable to HollyFrontier stockholders plus (i) interest expense, net of interest income, (ii) income tax expense, and (iii) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as EBITDA plus or minus (i) lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustments, (ii) long-lived asset impairment, inclusive of pro-rata share of impairment in HEP segment, (iii) goodwill impairment, (iv) HollyFrontier's pro-rata share of HEP's gain on sales-type leases, (v) acquisition integration and regulatory costs, (vi) HollyFrontier's pro-rata share of HEP's loss on early extinguishment of debt, (vii) severance costs, (viii) restructuring charges and (ix) incremental cost of products sold attributable to our Sonneborn inventory value step-up.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not calculations provided for under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States; however, the amounts included in these calculations are derived from amounts included in our consolidated financial statements. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to net income or operating income as an indication of our operating performance or as an alternative to operating cash flow as a measure of liquidity. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. These are presented here because they are widely used financial indicators used by investors and analysts to measure performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also used by our management for internal analysis and as a basis for financial covenants.

Set forth below is our calculation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA.

Reconciliations of refinery operating information (non-GAAP performance measures) to amounts reported under generally accepted accounting principles in financial statements.

Refinery gross margin and net operating margin are non-GAAP performance measures that are used by our management and others to compare our refining performance to that of other companies in our industry. We believe these margin measures are helpful to investors in evaluating our refining performance on a relative and absolute basis. Refinery gross margin per produced barrel sold is total refining segment revenues less total refining segment cost of products sold, exclusive of lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustments, divided by sales volumes of produced refined products sold. Net operating margin per barrel sold is the difference between refinery gross margin and refinery operating expenses per produced barrel sold. These two margins do not include the non-cash effects of long-lived asset impairment charges, lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustments or depreciation and amortization. Each of these component performance measures can be reconciled directly to our consolidated statements of income. Other companies in our industry may not calculate these performance measures in the same manner.

Below are reconciliations to our consolidated statements of income for refinery net operating and gross margin and operating expenses, in each case averaged per produced barrel sold. Due to rounding of reported numbers, some amounts may not calculate exactly.

Reconciliation of net income (loss) attributable to HollyFrontier stockholders to adjusted net income attributable to HollyFrontier stockholders

Adjusted net income attributable to HollyFrontier stockholders is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes non-cash lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustments, long-lived asset and goodwill impairments, acquisition integration and regulatory costs, severance costs, restructuring charges, HEP's gain on sales-type leases, HEP's loss on early extinguishment of debt and incremental cost of products sold due to Sonneborn inventory value step-up. We believe this measure is helpful to investors and others in evaluating our financial performance and to compare our results to that of other companies in our industry. Similarly titled performance measures of other companies may not be calculated in the same manner.
