PBF Energy Reports Fourth Quarter 2019 Results, Declares Div

|Feb 13|magazine92 min read

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Feb. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- PBF Energy Inc. (NYSE: PBF) today reported fourth quarter 2019  income from operations of $123.0 million as compared to loss from operations of $446.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2018. Excluding special items, fourth quarter 2019 income from operations was $149.8 million as compared to income from operations of $213.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2018.

The company reported fourth quarter 2019 net income of $69.1 million and net income attributable to PBF Energy Inc. of $53.0 million or $0.44 per share. This compares to net loss of $346.7 million, and net loss attributable to PBF Energy Inc. of $353.8 million or $2.97 per share for the fourth quarter of 2018.  Special items in the fourth quarter 2019 results, which decreased net income by a net, after-tax charge of $20.2 million, or $0.16 per share, consisted of a lower-of-cost-or-market ("LCM") inventory adjustment. Adjusted fully-converted net income for the fourth quarter 2019, excluding special items, was $73.6 million, or $0.60 per share on a fully-exchanged, fully-diluted basis, as described below, compared to an adjusted fully-converted net income of $125.8 million or $1.03 per share, for the fourth quarter 2018.

Tom Nimbley, PBF Energy's Chairman and CEO, said, "We ended 2019 with strong results. By strategically advancing maintenance into the first half of 2019 we gave ourselves a clear runway for the second half of the year and into 2020." Mr. Nimbley continued, "Looking forward, our outlook remains positive. The turmoil we experienced in January should begin to subside as we move past the market disruptions and into seasonally higher demand. We have started to see impacts of the IMO marine fuel regulation change and we expect those to become more apparent as the market continues to adapt to the new realities of lower-sulfur product demand and shifting appetites for various qualities of feedstocks. Finally, PBF Energy successfully completed the acquisition of the Martinez refinery and we welcome our newest employees and assets to the PBF family."

Income from operations was $649.0 million for the year-ended December 31, 2019 as compared to income from operations of $358.1 million for the year-ended December 31, 2018. Excluding special items, income from operations was $365.7 million for the year-ended December 31, 2019 as compared to income from operations of $717.9 million for the year-ended December 31, 2018. Adjusted fully-converted net income for the year ended December 31, 2019, excluding special items, was $109.3 million, or $0.90 per share on a fully-exchanged, fully-diluted basis, as compared to adjusted fully-converted net income, excluding special items, of $387.0 million, or $3.26 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2018. PBF Energy's financial results reflect the consolidation of PBF Logistics LP (NYSE: PBFX), a master limited partnership of which PBF indirectly owns the general partner and approximately 48% of the limited partner interests as of December 31, 2019.

Strategic and Corporate Update
On February 1, 2020, PBF Energy announced that its subsidiary completed the acquisition of the 157,000 barrel-per-day Martinez refinery, and related logistics assets. With the acquisition, PBF increased its total throughput capacity to more than one million barrels per day and becomes the most complex independent refiner with a consolidated Nelson Complexity of 12.8.

In January of 2020, PBF Energy's indirect subsidiary, PBF Holding Company LLC, successfully raised $1.0 billion in aggregate principal amount of 6.00% senior unsecured notes due 2028 (the "2028 Senior Notes") in a private offering. The company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund the redemption of its outstanding 7.00% Senior Notes due 2023 (the "2023 Notes") and for general corporate purposes, including to pay a portion of the cash consideration for the acquisition of the Martinez refinery and related logistics assets.

Throughput Guidance
For the first quarter 2020, we expect East Coast total throughput to average 345,000 to 365,000 barrels per day; Mid-Continent total throughput is expected to average 95,000 to 105,000 barrels per day; Gulf Coast total throughput is expected to average 165,000 to 175,000 barrels per day; and West Coast total throughput is expected to average 260,000 to 280,000 barrels per day.

For the full-year 2020, East Coast total throughput is expected to average 350,000 to 370,000 barrels per day; Mid-Continent total throughput is expected to average 135,000 to 145,000 barrels per day; Gulf Coast total throughput is expected to average 180,000 to 190,000 barrels per day; and West Coast total throughput is expected to average 290,000 to 310,000 barrels per day.

First quarter and full-year throughput guidance for the West Coast region reflects the expected throughput of the Martinez refinery from the date of closing.

PBF Energy Inc. Declares Dividend
The company announced today that it will pay a quarterly dividend of $0.30 per share of Class A common stock on March 17, 2020, to holders of record as of February 25, 2020.

Adjusted Fully-Converted Results
Adjusted fully-converted results assume the exchange of all PBF Energy Company LLC Series A Units and dilutive securities into shares of PBF Energy Inc. Class A common stock on a one-for-one basis, resulting in the elimination of the noncontrolling interest and a corresponding adjustment to the company's tax provision.

Non-GAAP Measures
This earnings release, and the discussion during the management conference call, may include references to Non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) measures including Adjusted Fully-Converted Net Income, Adjusted Fully-Converted Net Income excluding special items, Adjusted Fully-Converted Net Income per fully-exchanged, fully-diluted share, gross refining margin, gross refining margin excluding special items, gross refining margin per barrel of throughput, EBITDA (Earnings before Interest, Income Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization), EBITDA excluding special items and Adjusted EBITDA. PBF believes that Non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information about its operating performance and financial results. However, these measures have important limitations as analytical tools and should not be viewed in isolation or considered as alternatives for, or superior to, comparable GAAP financial measures. PBF's Non-GAAP financial measures may also differ from similarly named measures used by other companies. See the accompanying tables and footnotes in this release for additional information on the Non-GAAP measures used in this release and reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

Conference Call Information
PBF Energy's senior management will host a conference call and webcast regarding quarterly results and other business matters on Thursday, February 13, 2020, at 8:30 a.m. ET.

EARNINGS RELEASE TABLES

FOOTNOTES TO EARNINGS RELEASE TABLES


(1) Adjusted fully-converted information is presented in this table as management believes that these Non-GAAP measures, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP measures, are useful to investors to compare our results across the periods presented and facilitates an understanding of our operating results. We also use these measures to evaluate our operating performance. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The differences between adjusted fully-converted and GAAP results are explained in footnotes 2 through 6.




















(2) Represents the elimination of the noncontrolling interest associated with the ownership by the members of PBF Energy Company LLC ("PBF LLC") other than PBF Energy Inc., as if such members had fully exchanged their PBF LLC Series A Units for shares of PBF Energy's Class A common stock.




















(3) Represents an adjustment to reflect PBF Energy's annualized statutory corporate tax rate of approximately 24.9% and 26.0% for the 2019 and 2018 periods, respectively, applied to net income attributable to noncontrolling interest for all periods presented. The adjustment assumes the full exchange of existing PBF LLC Series A Units as described in footnote 2 above. Our statutory tax rates were reduced in 2018 as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("TCJA") enactment.




















(4) The Non-GAAP measures presented include adjusted fully-converted net income excluding special items, income from operations excluding special items, EBITDA excluding special items and gross refining margin excluding special items. Special items for the periods presented relate to lower of cost or market ("LCM") inventory adjustments, gains on the sale of assets at our Torrance refinery, changes in the Tax Receivable Agreement liability and charges associated with the early return of certain leased railcars, as discussed further below. Additionally, the cumulative effects of all current and prior period special items on equity are shown in footnote 13.

Although we believe that Non-GAAP financial measures excluding the impact of special items provide useful supplemental information to investors regarding the results and performance of our business and allow for useful period-over-period comparisons, such Non-GAAP measures should only be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.


Special Items:


LCM inventory adjustment - LCM is a GAAP requirement related to inventory valuation that mandates inventory to be stated at the lower of cost or market. Our inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. Cost is determined using last-in, first-out ("LIFO") inventory valuation methodology, in which the most recently incurred costs are charged to cost of sales and inventories are valued at base layer acquisition costs. Market is determined based on an assessment of the current estimated replacement cost and net realizable selling price of the inventory. In periods where the market price of our inventory declines substantially, cost values of inventory may exceed market values. In such instances, we record an adjustment to write down the value of inventory to market value in accordance with GAAP. In subsequent periods, the value of inventory is reassessed and an LCM inventory adjustment is recorded to reflect the net change in the LCM inventory reserve between the prior period and the current period.




















The following table includes the LCM inventory reserve as of each date presented (in millions):

Gain on Torrance land sale - During the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, we recorded a gain on the sale of two separate parcels of real property acquired as part of the Torrance refinery, but not part of the refinery itself. The gain increased income from operations and net income by $33.1 million and $24.9 million, respectively, during the year ended December 31, 2019. The gain increased income from operations and net income by $43.8 million and $32.4 million, respectively, during the year ended December 31, 2018.




















Early Return of Railcars - During the three months and year ended December 31, 2018 we recognized certain expenses within Cost of sales associated with the voluntary early return of certain leased railcars, which decreased income from operations by $7.7 million and $52.3 million ($5.7 million and $38.7 million, net of tax), respectively. There were no such expenses in the year ended December 31, 2019.




















Change in Tax Receivable Agreement liability - During the three months and year ended December 31, 2018 we recorded a change in the Tax Receivable Agreement liability that increased income before income taxes by $6.1 million and $13.9 million ($4.5 million and $10.3 million, net of tax), respectively. There were no such expenses in the year ended December 31, 2019.




















Recomputed Income taxes on special items - The income tax impact of the special items were calculated using the tax rates shown in footnote 3 above.




















(5) Represents an adjustment to weighted-average diluted shares outstanding to assume the full exchange of existing PBF LLC Series A Units as described in footnote 2 above.


(6) Represents weighted-average diluted shares outstanding assuming the conversion of all common stock equivalents, including options and warrants for PBF LLC Series A Units and performance share units and options for shares of PBF Energy Class A common stock as calculated under the treasury stock method (to the extent the impact of such exchange would not be anti-dilutive) for the three months and years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Common stock equivalents exclude the effects of performance share units and options and warrants to purchase 6,734,276 and 6,765,526 shares of PBF Energy Class A common stock and PBF LLC Series A Units because they are anti-dilutive for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019, respectively. Common stock equivalents exclude the effects of options and warrants to purchase 1,278,242 and 1,293,242 shares of PBF Energy Class A common stock and PBF LLC Series A Units because they are anti-dilutive for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018, respectively. For periods showing a net loss, all common stock equivalents and unvested restricted stock are considered anti-dilutive.




















(7) EBITDA (Earnings before Interest, Income Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental measures of performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before adjustments for items such as stock-based compensation expense, the non-cash change in the fair value of catalyst obligations, the write down of inventory to the LCM, changes in the liability for Tax Receivable Agreement due to factors out of our control such as changes in tax rates, debt extinguishment costs related to refinancing activities, and certain other non-cash items. We use these Non-GAAP financial measures as a supplement to our GAAP results in order to provide additional metrics on factors and trends affecting our business. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are measures of operating performance that are not defined by GAAP and should not be considered substitutes for net income as determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, because EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not calculated in the same manner by all companies, they are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have their limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.




















(8) We operate in two reportable segments: Refining and Logistics. Our operations that are not included in the Refining and Logistics segments are included in Corporate. As of December 31, 2019, the Refining segment includes the operations of our oil refineries and related facilities in Delaware City, Delaware, Paulsboro, New Jersey, Toledo, Ohio, Chalmette, Louisiana and Torrance, California. The Logistics segment includes the operations of PBF Logistics LP ("PBFX"), a growth-oriented master limited partnership which owns or leases, operates, develops and acquires crude oil and refined petroleum products terminals, pipelines, storage facilities and similar logistics assets. PBFX's assets primarily consist of rail and truck terminals and unloading racks, storage facilities and pipelines, a substantial portion of which were acquired from or contributed by PBF LLC and are located at, or nearby, our refineries. PBFX provides various rail, truck and marine terminaling services, pipeline transportation services and storage services to PBF Holding and/or its subsidiaries and third party customers through fee-based commercial agreements.

 

PBFX currently does not generate significant third party revenue and intersegment related-party revenues are eliminated in consolidation. From a PBF Energy perspective, our chief operating decision maker evaluates the Logistics segment as a whole without regard to any of PBFX's individual operating segments.

(10) Gross refining margin and gross refining margin per barrel of throughput are Non-GAAP measures because they exclude refinery operating expenses, depreciation and amortization and gross margin of PBFX. Gross refining margin per barrel is gross refining margin, divided by total crude and feedstocks throughput. We believe they are important measures of operating performance and provide useful information to investors because gross refining margin per barrel is a helpful metric comparison to the industry refining margin benchmarks shown in the Market Indicators Tables, as the industry benchmarks do not include a charge for refinery operating expenses and depreciation. Other companies in our industry may not calculate gross refining margin and gross refining margin per barrel in the same manner. Gross refining margin and gross refining margin per barrel of throughput have their limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.


(11) Represents refinery operating expenses, including corporate-owned logistics assets, excluding depreciation and amortization, divided by total crude oil and feedstocks throughput.




















(12) We define heavy crude oil as crude oil with American Petroleum Institute (API) gravity less than 24 degrees. We define medium crude oil as crude oil with API gravity between 24 and 35 degrees. We define light crude oil as crude oil with API gravity higher than 35 degrees.



























(13) The total debt to capitalization ratio is calculated by dividing total debt by the sum of total debt and total equity. This ratio is a measurement that management believes is useful to investors in analyzing our leverage. Net debt and the net debt to capitalization ratio are Non-GAAP measures. Net debt is calculated by subtracting cash and cash equivalents from total debt. We believe these measurements are also useful to investors since we have the ability to and may decide to use a portion of our cash and cash equivalents to retire or pay down our debt. Additionally, we have also presented the total debt to capitalization and net debt to capitalization ratios excluding the cumulative effects of special items on equity.
