Forward-Looking Statements

This news release includes certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which are intended to qualify for the “safe harbor” from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements about Par Pacific's financing plans. There can be no assurances that Par Pacific will be successful in its marketing efforts or that it will be able to enter into the Facility or the new ABL. Closing of the Facility and the new ABL is subject to market conditions as well as the negotiation and execution of definitive documents and the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. Additionally, forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks, trends, and uncertainties, such as the completion of our financial closing procedures and the finalization of our audited financial statements for the three months and year ended December 31, 2022. We cannot provide assurances that the assumptions upon which these forward-looking statements are based will prove to have been correct. Should one of these risks materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements, and investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which are current only as of this date. We do not intend to update or revise any forward-looking statements made herein or any other forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. We further expressly disclaim any written or oral statements made by a third party regarding the subject matter of this news release.

Note About Preliminary Results

The financial and operational information presented in this news release is preliminary and may change. Our financial closing procedures with respect to the estimated financial and operational information provided in this news release are not yet complete. As a result, our final results may vary materially from the preliminary results included in this news release. We undertake no obligation to update or supplement the information provided in this news release until we release our financial statements for the three months and year ended December 31, 2022. The preliminary financial information included in the news release reflects our current estimates based on information available as of the date of this new release and has been prepared by our management. Our independent registered public accounting firm has not audited, reviewed, compiled, or applied agreed-upon procedures with respect to the preliminary financial and operational information included in this news release. Accordingly, our independent registered public accounting firm does not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect thereto. This preliminary financial and operational information should not be viewed as a substitute for full financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP and is not necessarily indicative of the results to be achieved for any future periods.

Use of Non-GAAP Information

Management uses certain financial measures to evaluate our operating performance that are considered non-GAAP financial measures. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes or alternatives to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies since each company may define these terms differently. We believe Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) are useful supplemental financial measures that allow investors to assess the financial performance of our assets without regard to financing methods, capital structure, or historical cost basis, the ability of our assets to generate cash to pay interest on our indebtedness, and our operating performance and return on invested capital as compared to other companies without regard to financing methods and capital structure.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) is defined as Net income (loss) excluding:

inventory valuation adjustment (which adjusts for timing differences to reflect the economics of our inventory financing agreements, including lower of cost or net realizable value adjustments, the impact of the embedded derivative repurchase or terminal obligations, contango (gains) and backwardation losses associated with our Washington inventory and intermediation obligation, and purchase price allocation adjustments);
the LIFO layer liquidation impacts associated with our Washington inventory;
RINs mark-to-market adjustments (which represents the income statement effect of reflecting our RINs liability on a net basis; this adjustment also includes the mark-to-market losses (gains) associated with our net RINs liability);
unrealized (gain) loss on derivatives;
acquisition and integration costs;
debt extinguishment and commitment costs;
increase in (release of) tax valuation allowance and other deferred tax items;
changes in the value of contingent consideration and common stock warrants;
severance costs;
(gain) loss on sale of assets;
impairment expense;
impairment expense associated with our investment in Laramie Energy and our share of Laramie Energy’s asset impairment losses in excess of our basis difference; and
Par’s share of Laramie Energy’s unrealized loss (gain) on derivatives.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as Adjusted Net Income (Loss) excluding:

interest expense and financing costs;
equity losses (earnings) from Laramie Energy excluding Par’s share of unrealized loss (gain) on derivatives, impairment of Par’s investment, and our share of Laramie Energy’s asset impairment losses in excess of our basis difference; and
income tax expense (benefit).
