HF Sinclair Corporation Reports Quarterly Results and Announces Increased Regular Cash Dividend

DINO

  • Reported net income attributable to HF Sinclair stockholders of $160.0 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, and adjusted net income of $175.6 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, for the first quarter
  • Reported EBITDA of $359.8 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $376.7 million for the first quarter
  • Announced reinstatement and increase of regular quarterly dividend to $0.40 per share
  • Closed the acquisition of the Sinclair companies and established new parent company, HF Sinclair Corporation
  • Commenced production of renewable diesel at the Cheyenne, Wyoming renewable diesel facility and commenced operations at the Artesia, New Mexico pre-treatment unit

HF Sinclair Corporation (NYSE:DINO) (“HF Sinclair” or the “Company”) today reported first quarter net income attributable to HF Sinclair stockholders of $160.0 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, compared to $148.2 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.

The first quarter results reflect special items that collectively decreased net income by a total of $15.7 million. On a pre-tax basis, these items include acquisition integration costs of $25.0 million and decommissioning charges of $1.0 million related to the Cheyenne Refinery conversion to renewable diesel production, partially offset by a reduction in cost of goods sold by $8.6 million from lower of cost or market valuation. Excluding these items, net income for the current quarter was $175.6 million ($0.99 per diluted share) compared to net loss of $(85.3) million ($(0.53) per diluted share) for the first quarter of 2021, which excludes certain items that collectively increased net income by $233.5 million.

The HF Sinclair Board of Directors has declared the reinstatement of the regular quarterly dividend at an increased rate of $0.40 per share, compared to the first quarter 2021 dividend of $0.35 per share. The dividend is payable on June 2, 2022 to holders of record of common stock on May 23, 2022.

HF Sinclair’s CEO, Michael Jennings, commented, “The first quarter was transformational as we closed on the acquisition of the Sinclair companies, marking the new HF Sinclair, and made our first sales of renewable diesel from Cheyenne. Our combined, integrated platform delivered strong financial results led by the performance of our refining and lubricants segments. With the closing of the acquisitions of the Puget Sound refinery and Sinclair and our Renewables business approaching full operation, we are pleased to announce the first milestone in our capital return plan, an increased regular dividend of $0.40 per share. As we head into summer driving season, refining fundamentals are very favorable due to strong gasoline and diesel demand, coupled with low product inventories. We remain fully committed to our capital allocation strategy of returning $1 billion in cash to shareholders over the next twelve months.”

Refining segment income before interest and income taxes was $113.1 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $45.7 million in the first quarter of 2021. The segment reported EBITDA of $207.7 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $133.8 million for the first quarter of 2021. This increase was driven by higher sales volumes from the Puget Sound refinery and Sinclair acquisitions as well as the impact of stronger product demand on gross margins. Consolidated refinery gross margin was $12.69 per produced barrel, a 59% increase compared to $8.00 for the first quarter of 2021 and crude oil charge averaged 525,080 barrels per day (“BPD”) for the current quarter compared to 348,170 BPD for the first quarter of 2021.

Renewables segment loss before interest and income taxes was $(22.1) million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $(13.2) million in the first quarter of 2021. The segment reported EBITDA of $(16.3) million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $(12.8) million in the first quarter of 2021. Total sales volumes were 5 million gallons for the first quarter of 2022. The Cheyenne renewable diesel unit (“RDU”) was mechanically complete in the fourth quarter of 2021 and fully operational in the first quarter of 2022, the pre-treatment unit (“PTU”) at our Artesia, New Mexico facility was completed and fully operational in the first quarter of 2022 and the Artesia RDU is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2022. Also, effective with the Sinclair acquisition that closed March 14, 2022, the Renewables segment includes the Sinclair RDU.

Marketing segment income before interest and income taxes was $5.3 million and reported EBITDA was $5.8 million for the first quarter of 2022. Total branded fuel sales volumes were 85 million gallons for the first quarter of 2022.

Lubricants and Specialty Products segment income before interest and income taxes was $124.7 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $67.0 million in the first quarter of 2021. The segment reported EBITDA of $145.3 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $87.1 million in the first quarter of 2021. This increase was driven by strong finished product demand and pricing initiatives that outpaced rising feedstock and energy costs.

Holly Energy Partners, L.P. (“HEP”) reported EBITDA of $72.8 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $96.2 million in the first quarter of 2021.

For the first quarter of 2022, net cash provided by operations totaled $461.0 million. At March 31, 2022, the Company's cash and cash equivalents totaled $592.3 million, a $357.8 million increase over cash and cash equivalents of $234.4 million at December 31, 2021. Additionally, the Company's consolidated debt was $3,374.7 million. The Company’s debt, exclusive of HEP debt, which is nonrecourse to HF Sinclair, was $1,740.3 million at March 31, 2022.

The Company has scheduled a webcast conference call for today, May 9, 2022, at 8:30 AM Eastern Time to discuss first quarter financial results. This webcast may be accessed at https://events.q4inc.com/attendee/607702822. An audio archive of this webcast will be available using the above noted link through May 23, 2022.

Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot assure you that our expectations will prove correct. Therefore, actual outcomes and results could materially differ from what is expressed, implied or forecast in such statements.

Segment Information

Effective the first quarter of 2022, we revised our reportable segments to align with certain changes in how our chief operating decision maker manages and allocates resources to our businesses. Accordingly, we created two new reportable segments, Renewables and Marketing. Our operations are now organized into five reportable segments, Refining, Renewables, Marketing, Lubricants and Specialty Products and HEP. Our operations that are not included in one of these five reportable segments are included in Corporate and Other. Intersegment transactions are eliminated in our consolidated financial statements and are included in Eliminations. Corporate and Other and Eliminations are aggregated and presented under the Corporate, Other and Eliminations column.

As a result of the Sinclair Transactions that closed on March 14, 2022, the operations of the acquired Sinclair businesses are reported in the Refining, Renewables, Marketing and HEP segments.

The Refining segment represents the operations of our El Dorado, Tulsa, Navajo and Woods Cross refineries and HollyFrontier Asphalt Company LLC (“HFC Asphalt”). Also, effective with our acquisition that closed November 1, 2021, the Refining segment includes our Puget Sound refinery, and effective with our acquisition that closed March 14, 2022, includes our Sinclair and Casper refineries. Refining activities involve the purchase and refining of crude oil and wholesale 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 Mountains extending into the Pacific Northwest geographic regions of the United States. HFC Asphalt operates various asphalt terminals in Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma.

The Renewables segment represents the operations of the Cheyenne RDU, which was mechanically complete in the fourth quarter of 2021 and fully operational in the first quarter of 2022, the PTU at our Artesia, New Mexico facility, which was completed and fully operational in the first quarter of 2022 and the Artesia RDU, which is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2022. Also, effective with our acquisition that closed March 14, 2022, the Renewables segment includes the Sinclair RDU. During the construction phase of our RDUs and PTU, operating expense and capital expenditures were reported in the Corporate and Other segment, and this financial information has been retrospectively adjusted to reflect our current segment presentation.

The Marketing segment includes branded fuel sales through more than 300 distributors to more than 1,300 branded sites in the United States and licensing fees for the use of the Sinclair brand at more than 300 additional locations throughout the country.

The Lubricants and Specialty Products segment involves Petro-Canada Lubricants, Inc.’s (“PCLI”) production operations, located in Mississauga, Ontario, that includes lubricant products such as base oils, white oils, specialty products and finished lubricants, and the operations of our Petro-Canada Lubricants business that includes the marketing of products to both retail and wholesale outlets through a global sales network with locations in Canada, the United States, Europe and China. Additionally, the Lubricants and Specialty Products segment includes specialty lubricant products produced at our Tulsa refineries that are marketed throughout North America and are distributed in Central and South America and the operations of Red Giant Oil Company LLC, one of the largest suppliers of locomotive engine oil in North America. Also, the Lubricants and Specialty Products segment includes Sonneborn, a producer of specialty hydrocarbon chemicals such as white oils, petrolatums and waxes with manufacturing facilities in the United States and Europe.

The HEP segment includes all of the operations of HEP, which owns and operates logistics and refinery assets consisting of petroleum product and crude oil pipelines, terminals, tankage, loading rack facilities and refinery processing units in the Mid-Continent, Southwest and Rocky Mountains geographic regions of the United States. The HEP segment also includes 50% ownership interests in each of the Osage Pipeline, the Cheyenne Pipeline and Cushing Connect, a 25.06% ownership interest in the Saddle Butte Pipeline and a 49.995% ownership interest in Pioneer 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.

Refining Segment Operating Data

The following tables set forth information, including non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) performance measures about our refinery operations. Refinery gross and net operating margins do not include the non-cash effects of lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustments and depreciation and amortization. Reconciliations to amounts reported under GAAP are provided under “Reconciliations to Amounts Reported Under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles” below.

The disaggregation of our refining geographic operating data is presented in two regions, Mid-Continent and West, to best reflect the economic drivers of our refining operations. The Mid-Continent region is comprised of the El Dorado and Tulsa refineries. The West region is comprised of the Puget Sound, Navajo, Woods Cross, Sinclair and Casper refineries. The Puget Sound refinery was acquired November 1, 2021, and thus is included for the period January 1, 2022 to March 31, 2022. In addition, the refinery operations of the Sinclair and Casper refineries are included for the period March 14, 2022 (the date of acquisition) through March 31, 2022.

Reconciliations to Amounts Reported Under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles

Reconciliations of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) and EBITDA excluding special items (“Adjusted EBITDA”) to amounts reported under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in financial statements.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, referred to as EBITDA, is calculated as net income attributable to HF Sinclair stockholders plus (i) interest expense, net of interest income, (ii) income tax provision and (iii) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as EBITDA plus or minus (i) lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustments, (ii) severance costs, (iii) restructuring charges, (iv) Cheyenne refinery LIFO inventory liquidation costs, (v) decommissioning costs, (vi) pre-close acquisition integration costs, (vii) acquisition integration and regulatory costs and (viii) gain on tariff settlement.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not calculations provided for under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States; however, the amounts included in these calculations are derived from amounts included in our consolidated financial statements. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives 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 and Adjusted EBITDA are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. These are presented here because they are widely used financial indicators used by investors and analysts to measure performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also used by our management for internal analysis and as a basis for financial covenants.

Set forth below is our calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted 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 produced barrel sold is total Refining segment revenues less total Refining segment cost of products sold, exclusive of lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustments, divided by sales volumes of produced refined products sold. Net operating margin per barrel sold is the difference between refinery gross margin and refinery operating expenses per produced barrel sold. These two margins do not include the non-cash effects of lower of cost or market inventory valuation adjustments and 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.

Below are reconciliations to our consolidated statements of income for refinery net operating and gross margin and operating expenses, in each case averaged per produced barrel sold. Due to rounding of reported numbers, some amounts may not calculate exactly.
