Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

SUGAR LAND, Texas, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CVR Energy, Inc. (NYSE: CVI) today reported record full year 2012 net income of $378.6 million, or $4.33 per fully diluted share, on net sales of $8,567.3 million.  Fourth quarter 2012 net income was $40.2 million, or 46 cents per fully diluted share, on net sales of $1,880.8 million.

The 2012 results compare to net income for the full year 2011 of $345.8 million, or $3.94 per fully diluted share, on net sales of $5,029.1 million, and fourth quarter 2011 net income of $65.9 million, or 75 cents per fully diluted share, on net sales of $1,062.2 million.

Fourth quarter 2012 adjusted net income, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $103.8 million, or $1.20 per diluted share, compared to $29.5 million, or 34 cents per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. Major items impacting the 2012 fourth quarter adjusted net income, all net of taxes, were shared-based compensation of $6.2 million, an unfavorable impact from first-in, first-out (FIFO) accounting of $7.9 million, an unrealized gain on derivatives of $29.8 million, a loss on extinguishment of debt of $22.8 million, and a major scheduled turnaround expense of $56.1 million.

Operating income for the fourth quarter 2012 was $124.9 million, up from $26.9 million in the same quarter of 2011. Full year 2012 operating income was $1,034.9 million, up from $566.6 million for the full year 2011.

"CVR Energy's exceptional financial results in 2012 were driven by strong operating performance and attractive market conditions throughout the year. These results were achieved despite the expense and lost production from our planned major turnarounds at the refinery in Wynnewood and fertilizer plant in Coffeyville, along with a partial turnaround at the Coffeyville refinery," said Jack Lipinski, CVR Energy's chief executive officer. "Our fertilizer segment also had a solid year with CVR Partners generating 2012 full year distributions of $1.81 per common unit. 

"In addition to posting record results in 2012, we achieved another significant milestone by taking our petroleum businesses public earlier this year in the largest IPO of a master limited partnership to date," he said. "CVR Refining, LP began trading on the New York Stock Exchange on Jan. 17 under the ticker CVRR. CVR Energy, through a subsidiary, retains 81.3 percent of CVR Refining's common units.

"This latest IPO effectively makes CVR Energy a diversified holding company owning the General Partners of both CVR Partners and CVR Refining along with the majority of LP units in each company," Lipinski said.

Petroleum Business

The petroleum business, which includes the Coffeyville and Wynnewood refineries, reported fourth quarter 2012 operating income of $121.3 million, and adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, of $198.2 million, on net sales of $1,816.2 million, compared to an operating loss in the same quarter a year earlier of $3.3 million, and adjusted EBITDA of $47.6 million, on net sales of $979.5 million.

Fourth quarter 2012 throughput of crude oil and all other feedstocks and blendstocks, which was impacted by a major scheduled turnaround at the Wynnewood refinery, averaged 162,603 barrels per day (bpd), compared to 97,630 bpd for the same period in 2011. Crude oil throughput for the fourth quarter 2012 averaged 147,815 bpd per day, compared with 93,705 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 $25.93 in the fourth quarter 2012 compared to $11.05 during the same period in 2011. Gross profit per crude oil throughput barrel was $10.23 in the fourth quarter 2012, as compared to 90 cents during the same period in 2011.

Direct operating expenses, including major scheduled turnaround expenses, per barrel sold, exclusive of depreciation and amortization, for the fourth quarter 2012 was $11.29, down from $12.53 in the fourth quarter 2011.

Coffeyville Refinery

The Coffeyville refinery reported fourth quarter 2012 gross profit of $238.4 million, compared to $9.4 million of gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2011. Fourth quarter 2012 crude oil throughput averaged 124,570 bpd, compared to 81,474 bpd in the fourth quarter of 2011. Refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact per crude oil throughput barrel for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $28.08, compared to $12.19 for the same period in 2011. Gross profit per crude oil throughput barrel was $20.80 in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $1.26 for the 2011 fourth quarter. Direct operating expenses, including major scheduled turnaround expenses, per barrel sold for the 2012 fourth quarter was $4.20, compared to $13.84 for the 2011 fourth quarter. Fourth quarter 2011 results for the Coffeyville refinery were negatively impacted by a major scheduled turnaround.

Wynnewood Refinery

CVR Energy acquired the Wynnewood refinery in December 2011. The 2012 fourth quarter represents the refinery's fourth full quarter as a CVR Energy subsidiary.  Fourth quarter 2012 results for the Wynnewood refinery were negatively impacted by a major scheduled turnaround.

The refinery had a fourth quarter 2012 gross loss of $97.9 million. Fourth quarter of 2012 crude oil throughput averaged 23,245 bpd. Refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact per crude oil throughput barrel for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $14.67. Direct operating expenses, including major scheduled turnaround expenses, per barrel sold for the fourth quarter was $49.90.

Nitrogen Fertilizers Business

The fertilizer business operated by CVR Partners, LP reported fourth quarter 2012 operating income of $16.0 million, and adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, of $27.1 million, on net sales of $67.6 million, compared to operating income of $42.6 million, and adjusted EBITDA of $48.4 million, on net sales of $87.6 million for the 2011 fourth quarter.  Impacting 2012 fourth quarter results was a biennial turnaround at the company's nitrogen fertilizer plant in Coffeyville, Kan.

CVR Partners produced 87,700 tons of ammonia during the fourth quarter of 2012, of which 35,300 net tons were available for sale while the rest was upgraded to 127,300 tons of more highly valued UAN. In the 2011 fourth quarter, the plant produced 100,800 tons of ammonia with 27,500 net tons available for sale with the remainder upgraded to 178,300 tons of UAN.

For the fourth quarter 2012, average realized plant gate prices for ammonia and UAN were $676 per ton and $274 per ton, respectively, compared to $606 per ton and $334 per ton, respectively, for the equivalent period in 2011.

Cash Dividends

On Jan. 24, 2013, the CVR Energy Board of Directors adopted a quarterly cash dividend policy. The company's initial quarterly dividend is expected to be 75 cents per share, or $3.00 per share on an annualized basis, which the company plans to begin paying in the 2013 second quarter. Also on Jan. 24, 2013, the company declared a special dividend of $5.50 per share, which was paid on Feb. 19, 2013, to shareholders of record on Feb. 5, 2013.

(1)

Gross tons produced for ammonia represent the total ammonia produced, including ammonia produced that was upgraded into UAN. The net tons available for sale represent the ammonia available for sale that was not upgraded into UAN.



(2)

Plant gate sales per ton represent net sales less freight and hydrogen revenue divided by product sales volume in tons in the reporting period and is shown in order to provide a pricing measure that is comparable across the fertilizer industry.



(3)

On-stream factor is the total number of hours operated divided by the total number of hours in the reporting period and is included as a measure of operating efficiency. Excluding the impact of the Linde air separation unit outage and the major scheduled turnaround, the on-stream factors for the three months ended December 31, 2012 would have been 99.7% for gasifier, 98.8% for ammonia and 91.5% for UAN. Excluding the impact of the Linde air separation unit outage, the on-stream factors for the three months ended December 31, 2011 would have been 97.6% for gasifier, 97.1% for ammonia and 94.1% for UAN.




Excluding the impact of the Linde air separation unit outage and the major scheduled turnaround, the on-stream factors for the year ended December 31, 2012 would have been 98.1% for gasifier, 97.1% for ammonia and 92.8% for UAN. Excluding the impact of the Linde air separation unit outage, the on-stream factors for the year ended December 31, 2011 would have been 99.2% for gasifier, 98.0% for ammonia and 95.7% for UAN.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the actual results in accordance with GAAP for the applicable periods, the Company also uses non-GAAP measures as discussed below, which are reconciled to GAAP-based results. 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 (loss) 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 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.

Adjusted Petroleum and Nitrogen Fertilizer EBITDA represents operating income adjusted for FIFO impacts (favorable) unfavorable, share-based compensation, major scheduled turnaround expenses, realized gain (loss) on derivatives, net, loss on disposition of fixed assets, depreciation and amortization and other income (expense). 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 but should be utilized as a supplemental measure of performance in evaluating our business. Management believes that adjusted EBITDA by operating segment provides relevant and useful information that enables investors to better understand and evaluate our ongoing operating results and allows for greater transparency in the reviewing of our overall financial, operational and economic performance. Below is a reconciliation of operating income to adjusted EBITDA for the petroleum and nitrogen fertilizer segments for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012 and 2011:

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 our Petroleum segment holds various NYMEX positions through a third-party clearing house. In addition, the Petroleum segment 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 December 31, 2012.  The positions are primarily in the form of 'crack spread' swap agreements with financial counterparties, wherein the Company will receive the fixed prices noted below.
