PR Newswire
- 2015 EBITDA of $1.0 billion, fourth quarter EBITDA of $221.9 million, excluding special items
- Fourth quarter adjusted fully-converted EPS of $0.70, based on adjusted fully-converted net income of $71.0 million, excluding special items (GAAP loss per share of $1.24, based on a GAAP net loss of $119.5 million)
- Closed the Chalmette refinery acquisition and announced the pending Torrance refinery acquisition
- Successfully raised $850 million of equity and debt financing
- Declares quarterly dividend of $0.30 per share

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Feb. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PBF Energy Inc. (NYSE:PBF) today reported fourth quarter 2015 operating income, excluding special items, of $167.7 million versus operating income of $208.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. Special items in the fourth quarter 2015 results include two notable non-cash, after-tax items, a $209.0 million lower-of-cost-or-market ("LCM") inventory charge and a $12.3 million benefit related to a change in a tax receivable agreement liability.

Adjusted fully-converted net income for the fourth quarter 2015, excluding special items, was $71.0 million, or $0.70 per share on a fully-exchanged, fully-diluted basis, as described below, compared to adjusted fully-converted net income of $104.8 million, or $1.13 per share, for the fourth quarter 2014. On a GAAP basis, the company reported a fourth quarter 2015 net loss of $121.5 million, and net loss attributable to PBF Energy Inc. of $119.5 million or $1.24 per share. This compares to a GAAP net loss of $320.8 million, and net loss attributable to PBF Energy Inc. of $277.6 million or $3.34 per share for the fourth quarter 2014. PBF Energy's financial results reflect the consolidation of the financial results of PBF Logistics LP (NYSE: PBFX), a master limited partnership of which PBF indirectly owns the general partner and approximately 53.7% of the limited partner interests as of quarter-end.

For the year-ended December 31, 2015, operating income, excluding special items, was $787.3 million, compared to $837.8 million for the corresponding period in 2014.  Adjusted fully-converted net income for the year, excluding special items, was $402.1 million, or $4.27 per share on a fully-exchanged, fully-diluted basis, as compared to $433.5 million, or $4.50 per share, on a fully-exchanged, fully-diluted basis, for the corresponding period in 2014. Net income attributable to PBF Energy Inc. for the year was $146.4 million, or $1.66 per share as compared to a net loss of $38.2 million, or $0.51 per share, for the year-ended December 31, 2014.

Tom Nimbley, PBF Energy's CEO, said, "2015 was a transformational year for PBF.  Our strong operating results, particularly those from our East Coast assets, and our recently integrated Chalmette refinery, reflect the benefits of the optionality that we have built into our refining system. This optionality provides us with the flexibility to pursue the most economic barrels for our system and maximize the profitability of our assets by operating them as an integrated system."  Mr. Nimbley continued, "We have added meaningful scale to the company by closing on the Chalmette acquisition and announcing the Torrance refinery transaction.  With these two acquisitions, upon closing of Torrance, we will have solidified PBF's position as the fourth largest independent refiner in North America and added meaningful diversification to our refining system with the addition of Gulf Coast and West Coast assets. Looking ahead, our focus remains on delivering safe and strong operational performance and on fully integrating and optimizing our newest assets."

Total throughput for the fourth quarter averaged approximately 629,900 barrels per day, which was at the top end of our guidance and includes two months of operations from the Chalmette refinery. Throughput in the Mid-Continent averaged approximately 156,900 barrels per day, throughput on the East Coast averaged approximately 346,600 barrels per day and throughput on the Gulf Coast averaged approximately 190,800 barrels per day for the two months of operations under PBF's ownership.

Successfully raised $850.0 million of equity and debt financing through two capital markets transactions
October 13, 2015, PBF announced that it had closed its underwritten public offering of shares of its Class A common stock. Gross proceeds of the offering were approximately $350.0 million.

On November 24, 2015, PBF's indirect subsidiary, PBF Holding Company LLC ("PBF Holding"), closed its senior secured notes offering of $500.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 7.0% senior secured notes due 2023.

Previously announced Chalmette Refining LLC and pending Torrance refinery acquisitions
On November 1, 2015, PBF's subsidiary, PBF Holding, successfully closed its previously announced transaction to purchase Chalmette Refining, LLC, through which it acquired the 189,000 barrel per day Chalmette refinery and related logistics assets, from ExxonMobil and PDV Chalmette, LLC.

On September 30, 2015, PBF announced that its indirect subsidiary, PBF Holding, signed a definitive agreement to purchase the 155,000 barrel per day Torrance refinery, and related logistics assets, from ExxonMobil. The purchase price for the assets is $537.5 million, plus working capital to be valued at closing. The Torrance transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2016, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals. The refinery will be restored to full working order prior to close.

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 8, 2016 to holders of record as of February 22, 2016.

PBF Energy Inc. Share Repurchase Program
On August 19, 2014, PBF announced that its board of directors authorized the repurchase of up to $200 million of PBF Class A common stock. On October 29, 2014, the board of directors approved a $100 million increase to the existing authorization, for a total repurchase authorization of $300 million. The repurchase authorization expires on September 30, 2016.

These repurchases may be made from time to time through various methods, including open market transactions, block trades, accelerated share repurchases, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise, certain of which may be effected through Rule 10b5-1 and Rule 10b-18 plans. The timing and number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors, including price, capital availability, legal requirements and economic and market conditions. PBF is not obligated to purchase any shares under the repurchase program, and repurchases may be suspended or discontinued at any time without prior notice.

There were no repurchases made during the fourth quarter of 2015. As of the end the fourth quarter, 6,050,717 shares of Class A common stock have been repurchased at an average price of approximately $24.90 per share, excluding broker fees. After giving effect to shares already purchased under the program, the company has approximately $149 million of available repurchasing authorization under the program going forward. At the end of the quarter, there were an aggregate of 102,767,291 shares of Class A common stock and PBF Energy Company LLC Series A Units outstanding.

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 per fully-exchanged, fully-diluted share, gross refining margin, gross refining margin per barrel of throughput, EBITDA (Earnings before Interest, Income Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) and Adjusted EBITDA, as well as such measures excluding the impact of non-cash special items. PBF Energy Inc. 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 Energy Inc.'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.

PBF ENERGY INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

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 U.S. GAAP measures, are useful to investors to compare the company's results across the periods presented and facilitates an understanding of the company's operating results. The company also uses this measure to evaluate its operating performance. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The differences between adjusted fully-converted and U.S. GAAP results are explained in footnotes 2 through 7 and footnote 15.
















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
















(3) Represents an adjustment to reflect the company's statutory corporate tax rate of approximately 39.6% and 40.2% for the 2015 and 2014 periods, respectively, applied to the net income attributable to the noncontrolling interest for all periods presented.  The adjustment assumes the full exchange of existing PBF Energy Company LLC Series A Units as described in footnote 2.
















(4) The non-GAAP measures presented include adjusted fully-converted net income excluding special items, income from continuing operations excluding special items, EBITDA excluding special items, and gross refining margin excluding special items. The special items for the periods presented relate to a lower of cost or market adjustment (LCM) and changes in the tax receivable agreement liability. LCM is a GAAP guideline related to inventory valuation that requires 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 adjustment is recorded to reflect the net change in the LCM inventory reserve between the prior period and the current period. Changes in the tax receivable agreement liability reflect charges or benefits attributable to changes in our obligation under the tax receivable agreement due to factors out of our control such as changes in tax rates.  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 more 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.
















(5) During the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company recorded an adjustment to value its inventories to the lower of cost or market which resulted in a net pre-tax impact of $427.2 million reflecting the change in the lower of cost or market inventory reserve from $690.1 million at December 31, 2014 to $1,117.3 million at December 31, 2015. During the three months ended December 31, 2015, the Company recorded an adjustment to the lower of cost or market which resulted in a net pre-tax impact of $346.1 million reflecting the change in the lower of cost or market inventory reserve from $771.3 million at September 30, 2015 to $1,117.3 million at December 31, 2015. During the year and three months December 31, 2014, the Company recorded an adjustment to value its inventory to the lower of cost or market which resulted in a net pre-tax impact of $690.1 million. The net impact of these LCM inventory adjustments are included in the Refining segment's operating income, but are excluded from the operating results presented in the table in order to make such information comparable between periods. Income taxes related to the net LCM adjustment were recalculated using the Company's statutory corporate tax rate of approximately 39.6% and 40.2%, respectively, for the 2015 and 2014 periods presented.
















(6) Represents weighted-average diluted shares outstanding assuming the full exchange of common stock equivalents, including options and warrants for PBF LLC Series A Units and options for shares of PBF Energy Class A common stock as calculated under the treasury stock method. Common stock equivalents excludes the effects of options to purchase 2,943,750 and 2,401,875 shares of PBF Energy Class A common stock because they are anti-dilutive for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Common stock equivalents excludes the effects of options to purchase 1,335,000 and 2,385,000 shares of PBF Energy Class A common stock because they are anti-dilutive for the three months ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.
















(7) Represents an adjustment to weighted-average diluted shares to assume the full exchange of existing PBF LLC Series A Units as described in footnote 2 above if not included in the diluted weighted-average shares outstanding as described in footnote 6 above.
















(8) 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.  We use these non-GAAP financial measures as a supplement to our GAAP results in order to provide a more complete understanding of the 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.
















(9) 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, 2015, the Refining segment includes the operations of our oil refineries and related facilities in Delaware City, Delaware, Paulsboro, New Jersey, Toledo, Ohio and New Orleans, Louisiana.  The Logistics segment includes the operations of PBF Logistics LP ("PBFX"), a growth-oriented master limited partnership which owns and operates logistics assets, currently consisting of the Delaware City Rail Terminal, the Toledo Truck Terminal, the DCR West Rack, the Toledo Storage Facility and the Delaware City Products Pipeline and Truck Rack.  The Logistics segment's results include financial information of the predecessor of PBFX for periods presented prior to May 13, 2014, and the financial information of PBFX for periods beginning on or after May 14, 2014, the completion date of the PBFX initial public offering ("PBFX Offering"). Prior to the PBFX Offering, the DCR West Rack acquisition, the Toledo Storage Facility acquisition and the Delaware City Products Pipeline and Truck Rack acquisition, PBFX's assets were operated within the refining operations of PBF Energy's Delaware City and Toledo refineries. The assets did not generate third party or intra-entity revenue, other than certain intra-entity revenue recognized by the Delaware City Products Pipeline and Truck Rack, and were not considered to be a separate reportable segment. All intercompany transactions are eliminated in our consolidated financial statements and are included in Eliminations, as applicable.


(10)  As reported by Platts.


(11)  Gross refining margin and gross refining margin per barrel of throughput are non-GAAP measures because they exclude operating expenses, refinery 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 they provide useful information to investors because gross refining margin per barrel is a better 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.


(12) Represents refinery operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization, divided by total crude oil and feedstocks throughput.
















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


(14) Includes activity for the Chalmette refinery subsequent to its acquisition on November 1, 2015.
















(15) The Company recorded pre-tax adjustments related to the change in the tax receivable agreement liability of $18.2 million and $3.0 million for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and $20.4 million and $0.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Income taxes related to the change in the tax receivable agreement liability were recalculated using the Company's statutory corporate tax rate of approximately 39.6% and 40.2%, respectively, for the 2015 and 2014 periods presented.

 

(16) The Refining segment includes $565.3 million for the acquisition of the Chalmette refinery on November 1, 2015.
