HollyFrontier Corporation Reports Quarterly Net Income

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- HollyFrontier Corporation (NYSE:HFC) ("HollyFrontier" or the "Company") today reported first quarter net income attributable to HollyFrontier stockholders of $226.9 million or $1.16 per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, compared to $152.1 million or $0.76 per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

For the first quarter, net income attributable to our stockholders increased by $74.8 million compared to the same period of 2014, principally reflecting higher first quarter refining margins. Refinery gross margins were $16.69 per produced barrel, a 13% increase compared to $14.75 for the first quarter of 2014. Production levels averaged approximately 431,000 barrels per day ("BPD") and crude oil charges averaged 417,000 BPD for the current quarter. Operating expenses for the quarter were $263.6 million or $5.87 per barrel compared to $274.0 million or $6.29 per barrel for the first quarter of last year.

HollyFrontier's President & CEO, Mike Jennings, commented, "The strength of our first quarter earnings reflect outstanding operational reliability across our refining system. Crude throughput was 94% of nameplate capacity and 104% of capacity adjusted for planned turnaround activity in the quarter. Realized margin per barrel increased 13% compared to the same period last year driving a 53% improvement in earnings per share. March refinery performance was particularly strong averaging 444,000 BPD of crude charge and 465,000 BPD of production. The second quarter is off to a very good start with new record crude rates being reached at several of our plants. Given low planned maintenance for the rest of 2015, I expect continued high refinery utilization rates for the balance of the year."

For the first quarter of 2015, net cash provided by operations totaled $246.9 million. During the period, we declared $0.32 regular dividends to shareholders totaling approximately $62.0 million and repurchased $55.0 million in common stock under our Board-approved share repurchase program. At March 31, 2015, our combined balance of cash and short-term investments totaled $1.0 billion and our consolidated debt was $1.1 billion. Our debt, exclusive of Holly Energy Partners' debt, which is nonrecourse to HollyFrontier, was $186.6 million at March 31, 2015. We had no cash borrowings or outstanding principal under our credit facility during the quarter.

The Company has scheduled a webcast conference call for today, May 6, 2015, at 8:30 AM Eastern Time to discuss first quarter financial results. This webcast may be accessed at: https://event.webcasts.com/starthere.jsp?ei=1060741. An audio archive of this webcast will be available using the above noted link through May 20, 2015.

Segment Information

Our operations are organized into two reportable segments, Refining and HEP. Our operations that are not included in the Refining and HEP segments are included in Corporate and Other. Intersegment transactions are eliminated in our consolidated financial statements and are included in Consolidations and Eliminations. The Refining segment includes the operations of our El Dorado, Tulsa, Navajo, Cheyenne and Woods Cross refineries and NK Asphalt and involves the purchase and refining of crude oil and wholesale and branded marketing of refined products, such as gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel, specialty lubricant products, and specialty and modified asphalt. The petroleum products are primarily marketed in the Mid-Continent, Southwest and Rocky Mountain regions of the United States and northern Mexico. Additionally, specialty lubricant products produced at our Tulsa West facility are marketed throughout North America and are distributed in Central and South America. NK Asphalt manufactures and markets asphalt and asphalt products in Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Texas and northern Mexico.

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 and terminal, tankage and loading rack facilities in the Mid-Continent, Southwest and Rocky Mountain regions of the United States. Revenues are generated by charging tariffs for transporting petroleum products and crude oil through its pipelines and by charging fees for terminalling petroleum products and other hydrocarbons, and storing and providing other services at its storage tanks and terminals. The HEP segment also includes a 75% interest in the UNEV Pipeline (an HEP consolidated subsidiary) and a 25% interest in the SLC Pipeline. 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.

(4) Includes refined products purchased for resale.
(5) Represents crude charge divided by total crude capacity (BPSD). Our consolidated crude capacity is 443,000 BPSD.
(6) Represents average per barrel amount for produced refined products sold, which is a non-GAAP measure. Reconciliations to amounts reported under GAAP are provided under "Reconciliations to Amounts Reported Under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles" below.
(7) Transportation, terminal and refinery storage costs billed from HEP are included in cost of products.
(8) Excludes lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustment of $6.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015.
(9) Represents operating expenses of our refineries, exclusive of depreciation and amortization.
(10) Represents refinery operating expenses, exclusive of depreciation and amortization, divided by refinery throughput.
 

Reconciliations to Amounts Reported Under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles

Reconciliations of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") to amounts reported under generally accepted accounting principles in financial statements.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, which we refer to as EBITDA, is calculated as net income attributable to HollyFrontier stockholders plus (i) interest expense, net of interest income, (ii) income tax provision, and (iii) depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is not a calculation provided for under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States; however, the amounts included in the EBITDA calculation are derived from amounts included in our consolidated financial statements. EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative 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 is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. EBITDA is presented here because it is a widely used financial indicator used by investors and analysts to measure performance. EBITDA is also used by our management for internal analysis and as a basis for financial covenants.

Set forth below is our calculation of 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 barrel is the difference between average net sales price and average cost of products per barrel of produced refined products. Net operating margin per barrel is the difference between refinery gross margin and refinery operating expenses per barrel of produced refined products. These two margins do not include the non-cash effects of 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.

Refinery Gross and Net Operating Margins

Below are reconciliations to our consolidated statements of income for (i) net sales, cost of products (exclusive of lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustment) and operating expenses, in each case averaged per produced barrel sold, and (ii) net operating margin and refinery gross margin. Due to rounding of reported numbers, some amounts may not calculate exactly.
