Management Commentary

"Our solid performance this quarter shows that we continue to turn the corner on our transformation, as we successfully execute against the strategic goals we set last year," said Tim Go, Chief Executive Officer of Calumet. "We believe that our ongoing efforts to eliminate waste, reduce costs, and capture increased margins across our business have begun to positively impact our financial performance.  This was evident by our decreased net loss, solid improvement in Adjusted EBITDA and improved sequential gross margins in both the specialty and fuels businesses. We remain focused on further reducing the costs of doing business, while simultaneously growing our sales volumes and creating innovative new products, all of which should help us drive greater profitability in the future."

Go continued, "I am pleased to announce that Calumet is introducing its first ever Group III synthetic base oil product, CALPARTM 4GIII. The Group III classification characterizes the most highly refined base oil derived from crude oil, providing viscosity index levels above 120 and very high saturate content. CALPARTM 4GIII is designed for extensive use in engine oil formulations to improve gas mileage, reduce emissions and extend oil change intervals. Our proprietary technology was developed in-house by our product development team and shows the innovation capabilities of our organization. In fact, with the launch of CALPARTM 4GIII, Calumet becomes the first virgin producer of Group III base oils based in the United States."

Go concluded, "We remain encouraged by the sequential and year-over-year progress we have made thus far through our self-help initiatives, including lowering our cost of compliance on RINs, and believe that the results of our efforts will continue to flow through to our financial performance and position the Company towards sustainable growth in the coming quarters."

During the first quarter 2017, total specialty products segment sales volumes improved by nearly 10% compared to year ago levels, with volume growth exhibited across lubricating oils, waxes and branded and packaged specialty products categories. Gross profit per barrel increased sequentially to $31.85 this period compared to $25.30 in the fourth quarter 2016.  Adjusted EBITDA of $45.6 million also increased sequentially from $28.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The financial impact from price adjustments during the period were partially offset by periodic downtime for maintenance activities at two facilities. Both Adjusted EBITDA and gross profit per barrel figures were lower than the same period in the prior year, primarily due to elevated margin capture in the 2016 period as crude oil prices trended rapidly downward during the first quarter of 2016. First quarter Adjusted EBITDA also benefited from a $2.7 million favorable LCM inventory adjustment.

During the first quarter 2017, total fuel products segment sales volumes improved by nearly 2% compared to year-ago levels, with volume growth exhibited across diesel, asphalt and jet fuel categories. Gross profit and Adjusted EBITDA also demonstrated marked improvement compared to the year-ago period, driven by year-over-year increases in benchmark refined product margins and decreased Renewable Identification Numbers ("RINs") compliance costs. Specifically, the year-over-year performance improvements were driven in part by the approximate 30% improvement in the benchmark Gulf Coast 2/1/1 crack spread and higher sales volume. The segment also benefited from the absence of losses from Dakota Prairie Refining, LLC, a joint venture refinery, which was sold during last year's first quarter, as well as by a decline in operating costs associated with RINs pricing. First quarter Adjusted EBITDA also benefited from a $2.7 million favorable LCM inventory adjustment.

During the first quarter, the U.S. land-based rig count increased by approximately 33% on a year-over-year basis. Elevated drilling activity drove a 57% increase in revenue compared to the same period last year. The oilfield services segment's gross profit also grew meaningfully compared to both the prior year period and prior quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter increased $2.2 million year-over-year, but declined sequentially due to an unfavorable LCM inventory adjustment of $1.4 million.

Partnership Liquidity

As of March 31, 2017, the Partnership had availability under its revolving credit facility of $358.0 million, based on a $471.0 million borrowing base, $73.8 million in outstanding standby letters of credit and $39.2 million in outstanding borrowings. In addition, the Partnership had $4.6 million of cash on hand as of March 31, 2017. The Partnership believes it will continue to have sufficient liquidity from cash on hand, cash flow from operations, borrowing capacity and other means by which to meet its financial commitments, debt service obligations, contingencies and anticipated capital expenditures.

Financial Guidance

Full-Year 2017 Capital Spending Forecast

Through the first quarter of 2017, total capital spending was $11.8 million, down over 70% compared to the same period in 2016.  For the full-year 2017, the Partnership continues to anticipate total capital expenditures to come within range of its previously stated annual guidance of $120 to $140 million.

Full-Year 2017 RFS Compliance Impact Forecast

In conjunction with the Partnership's ongoing compliance with the Renewable Fuel Standard, the Partnership records its outstanding RINs obligation as a balance sheet liability. This liability is marked-to-market on a quarterly basis to reflect the market price of RINs on the last day of each quarter. The Partnership expects its gross estimated annual RINs obligation, which includes RINs that are required to be secured through either blending or through the purchase of RINs in the open market, will be up to 128 million RINs for the full-year 2017, excluding the potential for any hardship waivers that may or may not be granted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to any of the Partnership's fuel refineries at a later time. Calumet expects to be able to satisfy a significant portion of its 2017 gross RINs obligation through internal blending and other self-help efforts.

Operations Summary

The following table sets forth information about our combined operations, excluding the results of the oilfield services segment. Facility production volume differs from sales volume due to changes in inventories and the sale of purchased fuel product blendstocks such as ethanol and biodiesel and the resale of crude oil in our fuel products segment.

(1)   

Total sales volume includes sales from the production at our facilities and certain third-party facilities pursuant to supply and/or processing agreements, sales of inventories and the resale of crude oil to third-party customers. Total sales volume includes the sale of purchased fuel product blendstocks, such as ethanol and biodiesel, as components of finished fuel products in our fuel products segment sales.




The increase in total sales volume for the three months ended March 31, 2017, as compared to the same period in 2016, is due primarily to increased sales volume of lubricating oils, waxes and branded and packaged products as a result of improving market conditions and increased sales volume of fuel products including diesel and asphalt as a result of increased production at the Great Falls refinery from the expansion project completed in the first quarter 2016 and market conditions.



(2)   

Total feedstock runs represent the bpd of crude oil and other feedstocks processed at our facilities and at certain third-party facilities pursuant to supply and/or processing agreements.




The increase in total feedstock runs for the three months ended March 31, 2017, as compared to the same period in 2016, is due primarily to increased feedstock runs at the Great Falls refinery from the expansion project completed in the first quarter 2016 and improved operational reliability.



(3)  

Total facility production represents the bpd of specialty products and fuel products yielded from processing crude oil and other feedstocks at our facilities and at certain third-party facilities pursuant to supply and/or processing agreements. The difference between total facility production and total feedstock runs is primarily a result of the time lag between the input of feedstocks and production of finished products and volume loss.




The change in total facility production for the three months ended March 31, 2017, as compared to the same period in 2016, is due primarily to the operational items discussed above in footnote 2. 



(4)  

Packaged and synthetic specialty products include production at the Royal Purple, Bel-Ray, Calumet Packaging and Missouri facilities.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We include in this press release the non-GAAP financial measures EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow. We provide reconciliations of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow to Net loss, our most directly comparable financial performance measure. We also provide a reconciliation of Distributable Cash Flow to Net cash used in operating activities, our most directly comparable liquidity measure. Both Net loss and Net cash used in operating activities are calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are used as supplemental financial measures by our management and by external users of our financial statements such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others, 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 sufficient to pay interest costs and support our indebtedness;
  • our operating performance and return on capital as compared to those of other companies in our industry, without regard to financing or capital structure; and
  • the viability of acquisitions and capital expenditure projects and the overall rates of return on alternative investment opportunities.

We believe that these non-GAAP measures are useful to analysts and investors as they exclude transactions not related to our core cash operating activities and provide metrics to analyze our ability to pay distributions. We believe that excluding these transactions allows investors to meaningfully trend and analyze the performance of our core cash operations.

We define "EBITDA" for any period as net income (loss) plus interest expense (including debt issuance and extinguishment costs), income taxes and depreciation and amortization.

We define "Adjusted EBITDA" for any period as: (1) net income (loss) plus; (2)(a) interest expense, (b) income taxes, (c) depreciation and amortization, (d) impairment, (e) unrealized losses from mark-to-market accounting for hedging activities, (f) realized gains under derivative instruments excluded from the determination of net income (loss), (g) non-cash equity based compensation expense and other non-cash items (excluding items such as accruals of cash expenses in a future period or amortization of a prepaid cash expense) that were deducted in computing net income (loss), (h) debt refinancing fees, premiums and penalties, (i) any net loss realized in connection with an asset sale that was deducted in computing net income (loss) and (j) all extraordinary, unusual or non-recurring items of gain or loss, or revenue or expense; minus (3)(a) unrealized gains from mark-to-market accounting for hedging activities, (b) realized losses under derivative instruments excluded from the determination of net income (loss) and (c) other non-recurring expenses and unrealized items that reduced net income (loss) for a prior period, but represent a cash item in the current period.

We define "Distributable Cash Flow" for any period as Adjusted EBITDA less replacement and environmental capital expenditures, turnaround costs, cash interest expense (consolidated interest expense less non-cash interest expense), income (loss) from unconsolidated affiliates, net of cash distributions and income tax expense (benefit).

The definition of Adjusted EBITDA presented in this release is consistent with the calculation of "Consolidated Cash Flow" contained in the indentures governing our 7.625% senior notes due January 15, 2022, that were issued in November 2013 (the "2022 Notes"), our 6.50% senior notes due April 15, 2021, that were issued in March 2014 (the "2021 Notes"), our 7.75% senior notes due April 15, 2023 (the "2023 Notes"), that were issued in March 2015 and our 11.50% senior secured notes due January 15, 2021 (the "2021 Secured Notes"), that were issued in April 2016. We are required to report Consolidated Cash Flow to the holders of our 2021 Notes, 2022 Notes, 2023 Notes and 2021 Secured Notes and Adjusted EBITDA to the lenders under our revolving credit facility, and these measures are used by them to determine our compliance with certain covenants governing those debt instruments. Please see our filings with the SEC, including our 2016 Annual Report on Form 10-K and Current Reports on Form 8-K, for additional details regarding the covenants governing our debt instruments.

The preliminary expected range for forward-looking non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA contained in this press release is provided only on a non-GAAP basis, due to the inherent difficulty of calculating items that would be included in Net income (loss) on a GAAP basis. Adjusted EBITDA guidance that does not include certain charges and costs, which in future periods are generally expected to be similar to the kinds of charges and costs excluded from Adjusted EBITDA in prior periods, such as income taxes, interest and other non-operating items, depreciation and amortization, net unrealized gains and losses on derivatives, lower of cost or market adjustments, gains and losses on disposal or impairment of assets, equity-based compensation, revaluation of liabilities and items that are unusual in nature or infrequently occurring. The exclusion of these charges and costs in future periods will have a significant impact on Calumet's Adjusted EBITDA and Calumet is not able to provide a reconciliation of its Adjusted EBITDA guidance to net income (loss) without unreasonable efforts due to the uncertainty and variability of the nature and amount of these future charges and costs.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow should not be considered alternatives to net loss, operating income (loss), net cash used in operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP. In evaluating our performance as measured by EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow, management recognizes and considers the limitations of these measurements. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our obligations for the payment of income taxes, interest expense or other obligations such as capital expenditures. Accordingly, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are only three of several measurements that management utilizes. Moreover, our EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of another company because all companies may not calculate EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow in the same manner. The following tables present a reconciliation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow to Net loss, our most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, and Distributable Cash Flow to net cash used in operating activities, our most directly comparable GAAP liquidity measure, for each of the periods indicated.
