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 $21.3 million or $0.12 per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, compared to $226.9 million or $1.16 per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. Included in the current quarter results was a non-cash inventory valuation adjustment that increased after-tax earnings by $37.0 million, or $0.21 per share.

For the first quarter, net income attributable to our stockholders, excluding the lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustment, decreased by $238.0 million compared to the same period of 2015, principally reflecting lower refining margins. Production levels averaged approximately 416,000 barrels per day ("BPD") and crude oil charges averaged 391,000 BPD for the current quarter. On a per barrel basis, consolidated refinery gross margin was $7.59 per produced barrel, a 55% decrease compared to $16.69 for the first quarter of 2015. Total operating expenses for the quarter were $252.6 million compared to $263.6 million for the first quarter of last year, and refining operating expenses averaged $5.77 per produced barrel sold compared to $5.87 per barrel for the same period of 2015.

HollyFrontier's President & CEO, George Damiris, commented, "First quarter earnings reflect seasonally weak industry refining margins, which were 40% below the levels for the comparable period last year. Gasoline margins continue to strengthen, up between 40% and 70% versus first quarter levels. I expect gasoline margins to strengthen further and remain encouraged by the strong vehicle miles traveled data. We remain competitively positioned within the refining landscape given our gasoline weighting, crude slate flexibility and continued progress on the execution of our business improvement plan."

For the first quarter of 2016, net cash provided by operations totaled $6.6 million. During the period, we declared a dividend of $0.33 per share to shareholders totaling $58.6 million and spent $133.4 million in stock repurchases. At March 31, 2016, our combined balance of cash and short-term investments totaled $111.0 million and our consolidated debt was $1,308.2 million. Our debt, exclusive of Holly Energy Partners' debt, which is nonrecourse to HollyFrontier, was $246.2 million at March 31, 2016.

The Company has scheduled a webcast conference call for today, May 4, 2016, 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=1098799. An audio archive of this webcast will be available using the above noted link through May 18, 2016.

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 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. Additionally, the Refining segment includes specialty lubricant products produced at our Tulsa refineries that are marketed throughout North America and are distributed in Central and South America. HFC Asphalt operates various asphalt terminals in Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma.

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 process units in the Mid-Continent, Southwest and Rocky Mountain regions of the United States. The HEP segment also includes a 75% interest in the UNEV Pipeline (an HEP consolidated subsidiary), 50% ownership interests in Frontier Pipeline and Osage Pipeline and a 25% ownership interest in 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. Due to certain basis differences, our reported amounts for the HEP segment may not agree to amounts reported in HEP's periodic public filings.

(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 sold (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.
