CVR Energy Reports Second Quarter 2021 Results

SUGAR LAND, Texas, Aug. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CVR Energy, Inc. (“CVR Energy” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CVI) today announced a net loss of $6 million, or 6 cents per diluted share, on net sales of $1.8 billion for the second quarter of 2021, compared to net loss of $5 million, or 5 cents per diluted share, inclusive of a $41 million pre-tax charge related to a goodwill impairment recognized within its Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment, on net sales of $675 million for the second quarter of 2020. Second quarter 2021 EBITDA was $102 million, compared to second quarter 2020 EBITDA of $68 million.

“CVR Energy was pleased to return value to its stockholders through a special dividend of $492 million during the 2021 second quarter, paid in a combination of cash and the outstanding stock of Delek US Holdings, Inc. that was held by the Company,” said Dave Lamp, CVR Energy’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our Petroleum Segment’s second quarter results were highlighted by higher throughput volumes, increased crude oil pricing and widening crack spreads, offset by continued high Renewable Identification Number (RIN) pricing and the mark-to-market impact of our estimated outstanding RIN obligation.

“CVR Partners experienced a solid 2021 second quarter, led by a combined ammonia utilization rate of 98 percent,” Lamp said. “Further contributing to the quarter were ideal spring planting conditions, strong shipments of nitrogen fertilizer at both facilities and much improved realized prices. As a result, the Partnership announced a second quarter 2021 cash distribution of $1.72 per common unit.”

Petroleum

The Petroleum Segment reported a second quarter 2021 operating loss of $20 million on net sales of $1.6 billion, compared to an operating income of $5 million on net sales of $572 million in the second quarter of 2020.

Refining margin per total throughput barrel was $6.72 in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $10.43 during the same period in 2020. The decline in refining margin was driven by increased cost of sales and throughput volumes and was partially offset by increased crack spreads during the second quarter of 2021. For the second quarter 2021, costs to comply with the Renewable Fuel Standard were $173 million, or $8.77 per total throughput barrel, which included a $58 million unfavorable revaluation of our net renewable volume obligation (“RVO”) position as of June 30, 2021, compared to $16 million, or $1.12 for the second quarter of 2020, which included a $9 million favorable revaluation of our net RVO position as of June 30, 2020. The Petroleum Segment also recognized a second quarter 2021 derivative net loss of $2 million, or 9 cents per total throughput barrel, compared to a derivative gain of $20 million, or $1.39 per total throughput barrel, for the second quarter of 2020. Included in this derivative net loss for the second quarter of 2021 was a $37 million unrealized gain, compared to a nominal unrealized gain for the second quarter of 2020. Offsetting these impacts, crude oil prices rose during the quarter, which led to a favorable inventory valuation impact of $36 million, or $1.81 per total throughout barrel, compared to a favorable inventory valuation impact of $46 million, or $3.25 per total throughput barrel during the second quarter of 2020.

Second quarter 2021 combined total throughput was approximately 217,000 barrels per day (“bpd”), compared to approximately 156,000 bpd of combined total throughput for the second quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily attributable to the turnaround at our Coffeyville refinery in 2020, which began in late February and was completed in April.

Fertilizer

The Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment reported an operating income of $30 million on net sales of $138 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to an operating loss of $26 million on net sales of $105 million for the second quarter of 2020.

Second quarter 2021 average realized gate prices for urea ammonia nitrate (“UAN”) showed an improvement over the prior year, up 44 percent to $237 per ton, and ammonia was up 21 percent over the prior year to $403 per ton. Average realized gate prices for UAN and ammonia were $165 per ton and $332 per ton, respectively, for the second quarter of 2020.

CVR Partners, LP’s (“CVR Partners”) fertilizer facilities produced a combined 217,000 tons of ammonia during the second quarter of 2021, of which 70,000 net tons were available for sale while the rest was upgraded to other fertilizer products, including 334,000 tons of UAN. During the second quarter 2020, the fertilizer facilities produced 216,000 tons of ammonia, of which 79,000 net tons were available for sale while the remainder was upgraded to other fertilizer products, including 321,000 tons of UAN.

Corporate

The Company reported an income tax benefit of $6 million, or 78.4 percent of loss before income taxes, for the three months ended June 30, 2021, compared to an income tax benefit of $5 million, or 13.9 percent of loss before income taxes, for the three months ended June 30, 2020. The change in income tax benefit was due primarily to changes in pretax earnings, earnings attributable to noncontrolling interest and an increase in the effective income tax rate. The year-over-year increase in effective income tax rate was due primarily to the relationship between pretax results, earnings attributable to noncontrolling interest, and state income tax credits generated, as well as a discrete tax benefit recorded during the three months ended June 30, 2021, for decreases in state income tax rates.

Cash, Debt and Dividend

Consolidated cash and cash equivalents were $519 million at June 30, 2021, a decrease of $148 million from December 31, 2020. Consolidated total debt and finance lease obligations were $1.7 billion at June 30, 2021, including $640 million held by the Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment.

As previously announced, the Company paid a special dividend of approximately $492 million, or equivalent to $4.89 per share of the Company’s common stock, in a combination of cash (the “Cash Distribution”) and the common stock of Delek US Holdings, Inc. (“Delek”) held by the Company (the “Stock Distribution”). On June 10, 2021, the Company distributed an aggregate amount of approximately $241 million, or $2.40 per share of the Company’s common stock, pursuant to the Cash Distribution, and 10,539,880 shares of Delek common stock, which represented approximately 14.3% of the outstanding shares of Delek common stock, pursuant to the Stock Distribution.

On June 23, 2021, CVR Partners and its subsidiary, CVR Nitrogen Finance Corporation (“Finance Co.” and, together with CVR Partners, the “Issuers”), completed a private offering of $550 million aggregate principal amount of 6.125% Senior Secured Notes due 2028 (the “2028 UAN Notes”) for which net proceeds, plus cash on hand, were used to redeem a portion of the 9.25% Senior Secured Notes due June 2023 (the “2023 Notes”). The 2028 Notes mature on June 15, 2028, unless earlier redeemed or repurchased by the Issuers. The 2028 UAN Notes are jointly and severally guaranteed on a senior secured basis by all the existing domestic subsidiaries of CVR Partners, excluding Finance Co. Collectively, the issuance of the 2028 UAN Notes and partial redemption of the 2023 Notes represents a significant and favorable change in the Company’s cash flow and liquidity position, with an annual savings of approximately $17 million in future interest expense.

CVR Energy will not pay a cash dividend for the 2021 second quarter.

Today, CVR Partners announced that the Board of Directors of its general partner declared a second quarter 2021 cash distribution of $1.72 per common unit, which will be paid on August 23, 2021, to common unitholders of record as of August 13, 2021.

Non-GAAP Measures

Our management uses certain non-GAAP performance measures, and reconciliations to those measures, to evaluate current and past performance and prospects for the future to supplement our GAAP financial information presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are important factors in assessing our operating results and profitability and include the performance and liquidity measures defined below.

As a result of volatile market conditions related to the Renewable Fuel Standard (“RFS”) during the first half of 2021 and the impacts certain significant non-cash items have on the evaluation of our operations, the Company began disclosing Adjusted EBITDA, as defined below, in the second quarter of 2021. We believe the presentation of this non-GAAP measure is meaningful to compare our operating results between periods and peer companies. All prior periods presented have been conformed to the definition below. The following are non-GAAP measures we present for the period ended June 30, 2021:

EBITDA - Consolidated net income (loss) before (i) interest expense, net, (ii) income tax expense (benefit) and (iii) depreciation and amortization expense.

Petroleum EBITDA and Nitrogen Fertilizer EBITDA - Segment net income (loss) before segment (i) interest expense, net, (ii) income tax expense (benefit), and (iii) depreciation and amortization.

Refining Margin - The difference between our Petroleum Segment net sales and cost of materials and other.

Refining Margin, adjusted for Inventory Valuation Impacts - Refining Margin adjusted to exclude the impact of current period market price and volume fluctuations on crude oil and refined product inventories purchased in prior periods and lower of cost or net realizable value adjustments, if applicable. We record our commodity inventories on the first-in-first-out basis. As a result, significant current period fluctuations in market prices and the volumes we hold in inventory can have favorable or unfavorable impacts on our refining margins as compared to similar metrics used by other publicly-traded companies in the refining industry.

Refining Margin and Refining Margin adjusted for Inventory Valuation Impacts, per Throughput Barrel - Refining Margin and Refining Margin adjusted for Inventory Valuation Impacts divided by the total throughput barrels during the period, which is calculated as total throughput barrels per day times the number of days in the period.

Direct Operating Expenses per Throughput Barrel - Direct operating expenses for our Petroleum Segment divided by total throughput barrels for the period, which is calculated as total throughput barrels per day times the number of days in the period.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Petroleum EBITDA and Adjusted Nitrogen Fertilizer EBITDA - EBITDA, Petroleum EBITDA and Nitrogen Fertilizer EBITDA adjusted for certain significant non-cash items and items that management believes are not attributable to or indicative of our on-going operations or that may obscure our underlying results and trends.

Adjusted Earnings (Loss) per Share - Earnings (loss) per share adjusted for certain significant non-cash items and items that management believes are not attributable to or indicative of our on-going operations or that may obscure our underlying results and trends.

Free Cash Flow - Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures and capitalized turnaround expenditures.

Net Debt and Finance Lease Obligations - Net debt and finance lease obligations is total debt and finance lease obligations reduced for cash and cash equivalents.

Total Debt and Net Debt and Finance Lease Obligations to EBITDA Exclusive of Nitrogen Fertilizer - Total debt and net debt and finance lease obligations is calculated as the consolidated debt and net debt and finance lease obligations less the Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment’s debt and net debt and finance lease obligations as of the most recent period ended divided by EBITDA exclusive of the Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment for the most recent twelve-month period.

We present these measures because we believe they may help investors, analysts, lenders and ratings agencies analyze our results of operations and liquidity in conjunction with our U.S. GAAP results, including but not limited to our operating performance as compared to other publicly-traded companies in the refining and fertilizer industries, without regard to historical cost basis or financing methods and our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures. Non-GAAP measures have important limitations as analytical tools, because they exclude some, but not all, items that affect net earnings and operating income. These measures should not be considered substitutes for their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures. See “Non-GAAP Reconciliations” included herein for reconciliation of these amounts. Due to rounding, numbers presented within this section may not add or equal to numbers or totals presented elsewhere within this document.

Factors Affecting Comparability of Our Financial Results

Our historical results of operations for the periods presented may not be comparable with prior periods or to our results of operations in the future for the reasons discussed below.

Petroleum Segment

Coffeyville Refinery - During the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, we capitalized costs of $27 million and $149 million, respectively, related to the planned turnaround which began in February 2020 and was completed in April 2020.

Wynnewood Refinery - The Petroleum Segment’s next planned turnaround is at the Wynnewood Refinery, where pre-planning expenditures are currently underway. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, we capitalized a nominal amount and $1 million, respectively, related to these pre-planning activities.

Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment

Goodwill Impairment

As a result of lower expectations for market conditions in the fertilizer industry during 2020, the market performance of CVR Partners’ common units, a qualitative analysis, and additional risks associated with the business, the Company performed an interim quantitative impairment assessment of goodwill for the reporting unit associated with our Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment’s Coffeyville, Kansas facility as of June 30, 2020. The results of the impairment test indicated the carrying amount of this reporting unit exceeded the estimated fair value, and a full, non-cash impairment charge of $41 million was required.

(1) Reflects our ammonia utilization rates on a consolidated basis. Utilization is an important measure used by management to assess operational output at each of the Partnership’s facilities. Utilization is calculated as actual tons produced divided by capacity. We present our utilization for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 and take into account the impact of our current turnaround cycles on any specific period. Additionally, we present utilization solely on ammonia production rather than each nitrogen product as it provides a comparative baseline against industry peers and eliminates the disparity of plant configurations for upgrade of ammonia into other nitrogen products. With our efforts being primarily focused on ammonia upgrade capabilities, this measure provides a meaningful view of how well we operate.

(1) The Petroleum Segment’s basis for determining inventory value under GAAP is FIFO. Changes in crude oil prices can cause fluctuations in the inventory valuation of crude oil, work in process and finished goods, thereby resulting in a favorable inventory valuation impact when crude oil prices increase and an unfavorable inventory valuation impact when crude oil prices decrease. The inventory valuation impact is calculated based upon inventory values at the beginning of the accounting period and at the end of the accounting period. In order to derive the inventory valuation impact per total throughput barrel, we utilize the total dollar figures for the inventory valuation impact and divide by the number of total throughput barrels for the period.
(2) Includes an inventory valuation charge of $58 million recorded in the first quarter of 2020, as inventories were reflected at the lower of cost or net realizable value. No adjustment was necessary for the second quarter of 2020 or 2021 periods.
