SUGAR LAND, Texas, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CVR Energy, Inc. (NYSE: CVI) today announced second quarter 2014 net income of $83.7 million, or 96 cents per diluted share, on net sales of $2,540.3 million, compared to net income of $183.4 million, or $2.11 per diluted share, on net sales of $2,220.3 million for the 2013 second quarter. Second quarter 2014 adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $147.2 million, compared to second quarter 2013 adjusted EBITDA of $221.3 million.

For the first six months of 2014, net income was $210.4 million, or $2.42 per diluted share, on net sales of $4,987.8 million, compared to net income of $348.4 million, or $4.01 per diluted share, on net sales of $4,572.7 million for the same period a year earlier. Adjusted EBITDA for the first six months of 2014 was $301.4 million, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $507.3 million for the first six months of 2013.

"In the fertilizer segment, CVR Partners benefitted from higher average realized gate prices per ton for urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) during the second quarter of 2014 as compared to this year's first quarter," said Jack Lipinski, CVR Energy's chief executive officer. "At CVR Refining, the refineries posted a combined crude throughput of 212,047 barrels per day (bpd) processed in the 2014 second quarter. Overshadowing our second quarter results, however, is the unfortunate accident at CVR Refining's Coffeyville refinery on July 29 that injured four employees. We remain steadfast in our commitment to safety and are currently focused on providing support and assistance to the injured employees and their families."

The company also announced a second quarter 2014 cash dividend of 75 cents per share. The dividend, as declared by CVR Energy's Board of Directors, will be paid on Aug. 18, 2014, to stockholders of record on Aug. 11, 2014.

CVR Energy's second quarter cash dividend brings the cumulative cash dividends paid or declared for the first six months of 2014 to $3.50 per share. On July 17, 2014, CVR Energy announced a special dividend of $2.00 per share, which will be paid on Aug. 4, 2014, to stockholders of record on July 28, 2014.

Today, CVR Refining announced a 2014 second quarter cash distribution of 96 cents per common unit, and CVR Partners announced a 2014 second quarter cash distribution of 33 cents per common unit.

(1)

Gross tons produced for ammonia represent the total ammonia produced, including ammonia produced that was upgraded into UAN. As a result of the completion of the UAN expansion project in February 2013, the Nitrogen Fertilizer segment expects to upgrade substantially all of the ammonia they produce into UAN. The net tons available for sale represent the ammonia available for sale that was not upgraded into UAN.



(2)

In addition to the produced ammonia, the Nitrogen Fertilizer segment acquired approximately 3,000 and 4,000 tons of ammonia during the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The Nitrogen Fertilizer segment acquired approximately 26,000 and 4,000 tons of ammonia during the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.



(3)

Product pricing at gate per ton represents net sales less freight revenue divided by product sales volume in tons and is shown in order to provide a pricing measure that is comparable across the fertilizer industry.



(4)

On-stream factor is the total number of hours operated divided by the total number of hours in the reporting period and is a measure of operating efficiency.




Excluding the impact of the shutdown for installation of the waste heat boiler, pressure swing adsorption unit upgrade and the Linde air separation unit maintenance, the on-stream factors for the three months ended June 30, 2014 would have been 100.0% for gasifier, 94.9% for ammonia and 92.9% for UAN. Excluding the impact of the unplanned Linde air separation unit outages and the unplanned downtime associated with weather issues, the on-stream factors for the three months ended June 30, 2013 would have been 99.6% for gasifier, 99.1% for ammonia and 97.1% for UAN.




Excluding the impact of the shutdown for installation of the waste heat boiler, pressure swing adsorption unit upgrade and the Linde air separation unit maintenance, the on-stream factors for the six months ended June 30, 2014 would have been 99.4% for gasifier, 93.5% for ammonia and 95.0% for UAN. Excluding the impact of the unplanned Linde air separation unit outages, the UAN expansion coming on-line and the unplanned downtime associated with weather issues, the on-stream factors for the six months ended June 30, 2013 would have been 99.6% for gasifier, 98.9% for ammonia and 97.7% for UAN.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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

Adjusted net income is not a recognized term under GAAP and should not be substituted for net income as a measure of our performance but rather should be utilized as a supplemental measure of financial performance in evaluating our business. Management believes that adjusted net income provides relevant and useful information that enables external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, 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 is a measurement calculated as the difference between the Petroleum segment's 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 the refineries' performance as a general indication of the amount above their cost of product sold at which they are able to sell refined products. Our calculation of refining margin may differ from similar calculations of other companies in the 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 the Petroleum segment's 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 the Petroleum segment's 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 the refineries' performance as a general indication of the amount above their cost of product sold (taking into account the impact of the utilization of FIFO) at which they are able to sell refined products. Our calculation of refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact may differ from calculations of other companies in the industry, thereby limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. Under the FIFO accounting method, changes in crude oil prices can cause fluctuations in the inventory valuation of 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 the Petroleum segment's 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 crude throughput barrel is calculated as gross profit as derived above divided by the 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 the refineries' performance and the Petroleum segment's ongoing operating results. Our calculation of gross profit may differ from similar calculations of other companies in the 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, major scheduled turnaround expenses, loss on disposition of fixed assets, (gain) loss on derivatives, net, current period settlements on derivative contracts and loss on extinguishment of debt. 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 enable investors to better understand and evaluate our ongoing operating results and allow for greater transparency in reviewing our overall financial, operational and economic performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA presented by other companies may not be comparable to our presentation, since each company may define these terms differently.

Petroleum and Nitrogen Fertilizer EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA by operating segment 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 by operating segment represents EBITDA by operating segment adjusted for FIFO impacts (favorable) unfavorable; share-based compensation, non-cash; major scheduled turnaround expenses; loss on extinguishment of debt; loss on disposition of fixed assets; (gain) loss on derivatives, net; and current period settlements on derivative contracts. We present Adjusted EBITDA by operating segment because it is the starting point for CVR Refining's and CVR Partners' calculation of available cash for distribution. Adjusted EBITDA by operating segment is not a recognized term under GAAP and should not be substituted for operating income as a measure of performance. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA by operating segment enables investors to better understand CVR Refining's and CVR Partners' ability to make distributions to their common unitholders, helps investors evaluate our ongoing operating results and allows for greater transparency in reviewing our overall financial, operational and economic performance. Adjusted EBITDA presented by other companies may not be comparable to our presentation, since each company may define these terms differently.

Derivatives Summary. The Petroleum segment enters into commodity swap contracts through crack spread swap agreements with financial counterparties to fix the spread risk between the refineries' crude oil purchases and the refined products the refineries produce for sale. Through these swaps, the Petroleum segment will sell a fixed differential for the value between the selected refined product benchmark and the benchmark crude oil price, thereby locking in a margin for a portion of the refineries' production. The physical volumes are not exchanged and these contracts are net settled with cash. From time to time, the Petroleum segment holds various NYMEX positions through a third-party clearing house.

The table below summarizes the Petroleum segment's open commodity swap positions as of June 30, 2014.
