CVR Energy Reports 2012 Second Quarter Results

SUGAR LAND, Texas, Aug. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CVR Energy, Inc. (NYSE: CVI), a refiner and marketer of petroleum fuels and the majority owner in nitrogen fertilizer manufacturer CVR Partners, LP (NYSE: UAN), today reported second quarter 2012 net income of $154.7 million, or $1.75 per fully diluted share, on net sales of $2,308.3 million, compared to second quarter 2011 net income of $124.9 million, or $1.42 per fully diluted share, on net sales of $1,447.7 million.

Second quarter 2012 adjusted net income, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $223.1 million, or $2.52 per diluted share, compared to $126.4 million, or $1.44 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2011. Major items impacting the 2012 second quarter adjusted net income, all net of taxes, were an unfavorable impact from first-in, first-out (FIFO) accounting of $63.9 million; an unrealized gain on derivatives of $28.4 million; expenses associated with proxy matters of $17.8 million; and share-based compensation of $10.8 million.

Year-to-date, the company reported net income of $129.5 million, or $1.46 per diluted share, on net sales of $4,276.9 million compared to net income of $170.7 million, or $1.94 per diluted share, on net sales of $2,615.0 million for the first six months of 2011. Strong operating results for the first six months of 2012 were negatively impacted by an unrealized loss before tax on derivatives of $81.3 million and an unfavorable impact from FIFO accounting of $95.0 million.

"Our solid second quarter results were driven by wide crack spreads, favorable crude differentials and strong operational performance from both of our refineries," said Jack Lipinski, CVR Energy's chief executive officer. "Following the completion of a scheduled turnaround in March, our Coffeyville plant has run exceptionally well. In fact, the refinery set a new crude throughput record of 125,900 barrels per day for the month of June. 

"Our continuing integration efforts are paying off handsomely at the Wynnewood refinery, as well," he said.  "Wynnewood posted $97.2 million of operating income for the quarter. 

"Our results were also supported by our nitrogen fertilizer segment, which performed very well in the second quarter, reporting operating income of $36.1 million," Lipinski said.

Petroleum Business

The petroleum business, which includes the Coffeyville and Wynnewood refineries, reported second quarter 2012 operating income of $248.9 million, and adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, of $381.4 million, on net sales of $2,229.5 million, compared to operating income in the same quarter a year earlier of $183.5 million, and adjusted EBITDA of $208.4 million, on net sales of $1,376.7 million

Second quarter 2012 throughput of crude oil and all other feedstocks and blendstocks totaled 199,501 barrels per day (bpd), compared to 116,459 bpd for the same period in 2011. Crude oil throughput for the second quarter 2012 averaged 190,372 bpd per day compared with 109,486 bpd for the same period in 2011. The year-over-year increase in throughput was mostly driven by the addition of the Wynnewood refinery.

Refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact per crude oil throughput barrel, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $20.98 in the second quarter 2012 compared to $25.49 during the same period in 2011. Gross profit per crude oil throughput barrel was $15.31 in the second quarter 2012, as compared to $19.36 during the same period in 2011.

Direct operating expense per barrel sold, exclusive of depreciation and amortization, for the second quarter 2012 was $3.81, down from $4.09 in the second quarter 2011, driven by increased throughput at the Coffeyville refinery.

Coffeyville Refinery

The Coffeyville refinery reported second quarter 2012 operating income of $151.9 million on net sales of $2,162.2 million, compared to $185.4 million of operating income on net sales of $1,376.6 million for the second quarter of 2011. Second quarter 2012 crude oil throughput totaled 121,325 bpd, compared to 109,486 bpd in the second quarter of 2011. Refining margin per crude oil throughput barrel for the second quarter of 2012 was $20.61, compared to $25.46 for the same period in 2011. Gross profit per crude oil throughput barrel was $15.00 in the second quarter of 2012, compared to $19.40 for the 2011 second quarter. The refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact was $309.4 million for the 2012 second quarter, compared to $257.8 million for the same period in 2011. Direct operating expense per barrel sold for the 2012 second quarter was $3.62, compared to $4.09 for the 2011 second quarter.

Wynnewood Refinery

CVR Energy acquired the Wynnewood refinery in December 2011. The 2012 second quarter represents the refinery's second full quarter of production as a CVR Energy subsidiary. 

For the second quarter of 2012, the refinery's crude oil throughput totaled 69,046 bpd. The refinery's second quarter 2012 operating income was $97.2 million on net sales of $782.3 million. The refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact in the second quarter 2012 was $158.5 million and direct operating expense per barrel sold for the quarter was $4.02.

Nitrogen Fertilizers Business

The fertilizer business operated by CVR Partners, LP reported second quarter 2012 operating income of $36.1 million, and adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, of $44.1 million, on net sales of $81.4 million, compared to operating income of $39.3 million, and adjusted EBITDA of $45.0 million, on net sales of $80.7 million for the 2011 second quarter. 

CVR Partners produced 108,900 tons of ammonia during the second quarter of 2012, of which 34,900 net tons were available for sale while the rest was upgraded to 180,000 tons of more profitable urea ammonium nitrate (UAN).  In the 2011 second quarter, the plant produced 102,300 tons of ammonia with 28,200 net tons available for sale with the remainder upgraded to 179,400 tons of UAN.

Second quarter 2012 average realized plant gate prices for ammonia and UAN were $568 per ton and $329 per ton, respectively, as compared to $574 per ton and $300 per ton, respectively, for the same period in 2011.

Cash and Debt

Consolidated cash and cash equivalents, which included $196.4 million for CVR Partners, increased to $692.6 million at the end of the 2012 second quarter, compared to $500.9 million at the end of the first quarter of 2012, primarily due to increased cash flows in the petroleum business.  Consolidated long-term debt at the end of the 2012 second quarter, which included $125.0 million for CVR Partners, remained nearly unchanged at $851.9 million.
