HollyFrontier Corporation Reports Quarterly Results

11/05/2020
  • Reported net loss attributable to HollyFrontier stockholders of $(2.4) million, or $(0.01) per diluted share, and adjusted net loss of $(66.9) million, or $(0.41) per diluted share, for the third quarter
  • Reported EBITDA of $157.0 million and adjusted EBITDA of $65.6 million for the third quarter
  • Raised $750.0 million in a public bond offering in the third quarter to enhance liquidity and fund expansion into renewable diesel production

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- HollyFrontier Corporation (NYSE:HFC) (“HollyFrontier” or the “Company”) today reported third quarter net loss attributable to HollyFrontier stockholders of $(2.4) million, or $(0.01) per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to net income of $261.8 million, or $1.58 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

The third quarter results reflect special items that collectively increased net income by a total of $64.5 million. On a pre-tax basis, these items include HollyFrontier's pro-rata share of a gain recognized upon the settlement of the Company's business interruption claim with its insurance carrier related to a loss at the Woods Cross Refinery totaling $77.1 million and a lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustment of $62.8 million, partially offset by charges related to the Cheyenne Refinery conversion to renewable diesel production, including last-in, first-out (“LIFO”) inventory liquidation costs of $33.8 million, decommissioning charges of $12.3 million and severance charges totaling $2.4 million. Excluding these items, net loss for the current quarter was $(66.9) million ($(0.41) per diluted share) compared to net income of $278.0 million ($1.68 per diluted share) for the third quarter of 2019, which excludes certain items that collectively decreased net income by $16.2 million.

HollyFrontier’s President & CEO, Michael Jennings, commented, “Despite the difficult operating environment, HollyFrontier delivered solid results in the third quarter, led by resilient financial performances from our lubricants and midstream businesses. In August, we ran the last barrel of crude oil at Cheyenne and began the conversion to renewable diesel production. I would like to thank all of the employees at Cheyenne for safely achieving this milestone. In September, we reinforced our strong liquidity position through the successful $750.0 million bond offering, providing us the necessary capital to fully fund the previously announced renewable diesel projects at our Artesia, New Mexico and Cheyenne, Wyoming facilities.”

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. During the third quarter of 2020, demand for transportation fuels remained challenged while lubricants and specialties saw meaningful improvement in industrial and transportation-related markets and increased global demand for base oils.

The Refining segment reported adjusted EBITDA of $(53.6) million for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $424.6 million for the third quarter of 2019. This decrease was primarily due to continued weak demand for gasoline and diesel coupled with compressed crude differentials. Refinery gross margin for the third quarter of 2020 was $4.93 per produced barrel, a 71% decrease compared to $17.23 for the third quarter of 2019. Crude oil charge averaged 390,580 barrels per day (“BPD”) for the current quarter compared to 476,030 BPD for the third quarter of 2019.

The Lubricants and Specialty Products segment reported EBITDA of $60.6 million for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $38.0 million in the third quarter of 2019. This increase was driven by the strong recovery in global demand for finished lubricants and base oils, resulting in higher sales volumes and margins during the quarter.

Holly Energy Partners, L.P. (“HEP”) reported EBITDA of $55.3 million for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $123.1 million in the third quarter of 2019. Reported EBITDA for the third quarter of 2020 included a $35.7 million goodwill impairment charge, and reported EBITDA for the third quarter of 2019 included a $35.2 million gain on sales-type leases, both of which eliminated on the Company's consolidation.

For the third quarter of 2020, net cash provided by operations totaled $81.7 million. During the period, HollyFrontier declared and paid a dividend of $0.35 per share to shareholders totaling $57.2 million. At September 30, 2020, the Company's cash and cash equivalents totaled $1,524.9 million, a $622.4 million increase over cash and cash equivalents of $902.5 million at June 30, 2020. Additionally, the Company's consolidated debt was $3,176.3 million. The Company’s debt, exclusive of HEP debt, which is nonrecourse to HollyFrontier, was $1,736.5 million at September 30, 2020.

The Company has scheduled a webcast conference call for today, November 5, 2020, at 8:30 AM Eastern Time to discuss third quarter financial results. This webcast may be accessed at: https://event.on24.com/wcc/r/2628168/9BE4DA1E13C98135F6352CD76762D475.

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.

As previously disclosed, our Cheyenne Refinery ceased petroleum refining operations in the third quarter of 2020. Beginning with the fourth quarter of 2020, activities associated with the conversion of our Cheyenne Refinery to renewable diesel production will be reported in the Corporate and Other segment, and the disaggregation of our refining geographic operating data will be presented in two regions, Mid-Continent and West, to best reflect the economic drivers of our refining operations. The Mid-Continent region will continue to be comprised of our El Dorado and Tulsa Refineries, and the new West region will be comprised of our Navajo and Woods Cross Refineries.

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) HollyFrontier's pro-rata share of gain on business interruption insurance settlement, (iii) long-lived asset impairment, inclusive of pro-rata share of impairment in HEP segment, (iv) goodwill impairment, (v) HollyFrontier's pro-rata share of HEP's gain on sales-type leases, (vi) HollyFrontier's pro-rata share of HEP's loss on early extinguishment of debt, (vii) severance costs, (viii) restructuring charges, (ix) Cheyenne Refinery LIFO inventory liquidation costs, (x) decommissioning costs, (xi) acquisition integration and regulatory costs, (xii) incremental cost of products sold attributable to our Sonneborn inventory value step-up and (xiii) RINs cost reductions.

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.

(1) Income (loss) before interest and income taxes of our Lubricants and Specialty Products segment represents income (loss) plus (i) interest expense, net of interest income and (ii) income tax provision.

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 (loss) attributable to HollyFrontier stockholders is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes non-cash lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustments, gain on business interruption insurance settlement, long-lived asset and goodwill impairments, HEP's gain on sales-type leases, HEP's loss on early extinguishment of debt, severance costs, restructuring charges, Cheyenne Refinery LIFO inventory liquidation costs, decommissioning costs, acquisition integration and regulatory costs, incremental cost of products sold due to Sonneborn inventory value step-up and RINs cost reductions. 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.
