Holly Energy Partners, L.P. Reports Fourth Quarter Results

DALLAS--()--Holly Energy Partners, L.P. (“HEP” or the “Partnership”) (NYSE-HEP) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter of 2012. For the quarter, distributable cash flow was $41.6 million, up $9.2 million, or 28.6% compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. Based on these results, HEP announced its 33rd consecutive distribution increase on January 24, 2013, raising the quarterly distribution from $0.4625 to $0.47 per unit, representing a 6% increase over the distribution for the fourth quarter of 2011. On January 16, 2013, HEP completed its two-for-one unit split. All per unit amounts in this earnings release have been adjusted to reflect the unit split.

Net income attributable to Holly Energy Partners for the fourth quarter was $27.0 million ($0.37 per basic and diluted limited partner unit) compared to $30.9 million ($0.51 per basic and diluted limited partner unit) for the fourth quarter of 2011. This decrease in earnings is due principally to a one-time positive crude oil pipeline settlement of $5.5 million with HollyFrontier in the fourth quarter of 2011, increased operating costs and expenses and higher interest expense. These factors were partially offset by increased volumes, earnings attributable to our November 2011 asset acquisition and annual tariff increases.

Commenting on the fourth quarter of 2012, Matt Clifton, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer stated, “We are extremely pleased with our financial results, particularly with the record levels of our distributable cash flow and EBITDA. EBITDA for the fourth quarter was $54.7 million, an increase of $5.0 million, or 10%, over last year’s fourth quarter."

“Increased domestic oil production has positively impacted the gross margins of the refineries we serve throughout our Midcontinent, Rocky Mountain and Southwest asset base. This has given our refinery shippers strong incentives to maximize their production levels, which correspondingly kept our pipeline and terminal utilization rates at historically high levels during the quarter. Additionally, increased oil drilling activity near our crude oil gathering pipelines in Southeast New Mexico should continue to raise the amount of oil we gather and transport on our New Mexico crude oil pipeline assets. These positive industry fundamentals have increased the financial contribution from our heritage assets while our tankage and terminals acquisition in November 2011 and our UNEV pipeline acquisition in July 2012 further contributed to our year over year growth in distributable cash flow,” Clifton said.

Fourth Quarter 2012 Revenue Highlights

Revenues for the quarter were $81.4 million, a $12.3 million increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. The revenue increase was due to increased pipeline shipments, revenues attributable to our July 2012 and November 2011 acquisitions, the effect of annual tariff increases and an increase of $2.1 million in previously deferred revenue realized under our guaranteed shipping contracts, partially offset by the crude oil pipeline settlement of $5.5 million with HollyFrontier in the fourth quarter of 2011. Overall pipeline volumes were up 1% compared to the fourth quarter of 2011.

  • Revenues from our refined product pipelines were $30.6 million, an increase of $6.7 million primarily due to increased refined pipeline shipments, revenues attributable to UNEV, annual tariff increases and an increase of $1.8 million in previously deferred revenue realized. Shipments averaged 182.3 thousand barrels per day (“mbpd”) compared to 163.5 mbpd for the fourth quarter of 2011.
  • Revenues from our intermediate pipelines were $7.5 million, an increase of $1.2 million primarily due to increased shipments on our intermediate lines serving the Navajo refinery and an increase of $0.3 million in previously deferred revenue realized. Shipments averaged 115.8 mbpd compared to 128.4 mbpd for the fourth quarter of 2011. The overall volume decrease was attributable to a scheduled refinery turnaround that reduced volumes on our Tulsa interconnect pipelines.
  • Revenues from our crude pipelines were $12.0 million, a decrease of $5.2 million, on shipments averaging 174.4 mbpd compared to 174.2 mbpd for the fourth quarter of 2011. Revenues in 2011 included $5.5 million attributable to a crude oil pipeline settlement with HollyFrontier in October 2011.
  • Revenues from terminal, tankage and loading rack fees were $31.3 million, an increase of $9.7 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. This includes $7.2 million of increased throughput revenues attributable to our assets acquired in November 2011 that serve HollyFrontier's El Dorado and Cheyenne refineries. Refined products terminalled in our facilities increased to an average of 343.3 mbpd compared to 300.8 mbpd for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2012 include the recognition of $4.6 million of prior shortfalls billed to shippers in 2011 and 2012. As of December 31, 2012, deferred revenue in our consolidated balance sheet was $7.8 million. Such deferred revenue will be recognized in earnings either as payment for shipments in excess of guaranteed levels, if and to the extent the pipeline system will not have the necessary capacity for shipments in excess of guaranteed levels, or when shipping rights expire unused over the contractual make-up period.

Year Ended December 31, 2012 Revenue Highlights

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $292.6 million, a $78.3 million increase compared to the same period of 2011. The revenue increase was due to increased pipeline shipments, revenues attributable to our July 2012 and November 2011 acquisitions and the effect of annual tariff increases, partially offset by a $4.6 million decrease in previously deferred revenue realized under our guaranteed shipping contracts. Overall pipeline volumes were up 18% compared to the same period of 2011.

  • Revenues from our refined product pipelines were $105.2 million, an increase of $20.3 million primarily due to increased refined pipeline shipments, revenues attributable to UNEV and annual tariff increases partially offset by the effects of a $5.4 million decrease in previously deferred revenue realized. Shipments averaged 170.7 mbpd compared to 143.1 mbpd for the year ended December 31, 2011.
  • Revenues from our intermediate pipelines were $28.5 million, an increase of $6.6 million, on shipments averaging 127.2 mbpd compared to 93.4 mbpd for the year ended December 31, 2011. This includes $3.4 million of increased revenues attributable to our Tulsa interconnect pipelines and the effects of a $0.8 million increase in previously deferred revenue realized.
  • Revenues from our crude pipelines were $45.9 million, a decrease of $1.7 million, on shipments averaging 171.0 mbpd compared to 161.8 mbpd for the year ended December 31, 2011. The decrease in revenues was due to the crude oil pipeline settlement of $5.5 million with HollyFrontier in 2011.
  • Revenues from terminal, tankage and loading rack fees were $112.9 million, an increase of $53.0 million compared to the year ended December 31, 2011. This includes $45.4 million of increased throughput revenues attributable to our terminal, tankage and loading racks serving HollyFrontier's El Dorado and Cheyenne refineries. Refined products terminalled in our facilities increased to an average of 325.0 mbpd compared to 238.1 mbpd for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 include the recognition of $4.0 million of prior shortfalls billed to shippers in 2011.

Cost and Expense Highlights

Operating costs and expenses were $40.5 million and $154.3 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively, representing increases of $8.1 million and $46.2 million over the respective periods of 2011. These increases reflect incremental operating costs and expenses attributable to UNEV and our recently acquired assets serving HollyFrontier’s El Dorado and Cheyenne refineries and higher throughput levels on our legacy assets, as well as year-over-year increases in depreciation expense, maintenance service, payroll costs and professional fees.

Interest expense was $12.9 million and $47.2 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively, representing increases of $3.1 million and $11.2 million over the respective periods of 2011 due to higher year-over-year debt levels. Also, we recognized a loss of $3.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, on the early extinguishment of our $185 million 6.25% senior notes.

(1) We are a consolidated variable interest entity and under common control of HollyFrontier. With respect to the July 2012 acquisition of HollyFrontier's 75% interest in UNEV, U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) require that our financial statements reflect the historical operations of the assets recognized by HollyFrontier, effectively as if the assets were already under our ownership and control. Accordingly, we recognized additional revenues of $8.1 million and a net loss of $4.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, respectively, that relate to the operations of UNEV prior to our acquisition date. We recognized net losses of $1.7 million and $2.6 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2011, respectively, that relate to the operations of UNEV. Results of operations of UNEV prior to the acquisition on July 12, 2012 are herein referred to as the Predecessor's results. Reported volume information does not reflect volumes prior to our acquisition date.

In 2011 we accounted for the November 2011 acquisition of HFC's El Dorado and Cheyenne assets as a business combination under common control and retrospectively adjusted our financial results as if the acquisition had occurred as of July 1, 2011, the date HFC acquired the assets in the merger with Frontier Oil Corporation. As the pre-acquisition loss was not attributable to HEP, but rather to the Predecessor, the pre-acquisition loss should have been reported as a loss attributable to the Predecessor. We have adjusted the 2011 financial results accordingly.

During the fourth quarter of 2012 we identified certain immaterial items requiring revisions to our previously reported financial statements. However such cumulative corrections would have been material to the 2012 fourth quarter. As a result, prior period amounts have been restated to adjust for such items, which were comprised principally of an understatement of depreciation expense related to certain property and equipment.

(2) A two-for-one unit split, payable in the form of a common unit distribution for each outstanding common unit, was paid on January 16, 2013 to all unitholders of record on January 7, 2013. All references to unit and per unit amounts in this earnings release have been adjusted to reflect the effect of the unit split for all periods presented.

(3) Net income attributable to Holly Energy Partners is allocated between limited partners and the general partner interest in accordance with the provisions of the partnership agreement. Net income allocated to the general partner includes incentive distributions declared subsequent to quarter end. General partner incentive distributions were $5.3 million and $4.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $21.0 million and $15.5 million for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Net income attributable to the limited partners is divided by the weighted average limited partner units outstanding in computing the limited partners’ per unit interest in net income.

(4) Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) is calculated as net income attributable to Holly Energy Partners plus (i) interest expense, net of interest income, (ii) state income tax and (iii) depreciation and amortization (excluding Predecessor amounts). EBITDA is not a calculation based upon GAAP. However, the amounts included in the EBITDA calculation are derived from amounts included in our consolidated financial statements. EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income attributable to Holly Energy Partners or operating income, as an indication of our operating performance or as an alternative to operating cash flow as a measure of liquidity. EBITDA is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. EBITDA is presented here because it is a widely used financial indicator used by investors and analysts to measure performance. EBITDA also is used by our management for internal analysis and as a basis for compliance with financial covenants.

   
Set forth below is our calculation of EBITDA.

(5) Distributable cash flow is not a calculation based upon GAAP. However, the amounts included in the calculation are derived from amounts presented in our consolidated financial statements, with the general exception of maintenance capital expenditures. Distributable cash flow should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income attributable to Holly Energy Partners or operating income, as an indication of our operating performance, or as an alternative to operating cash flow as a measure of liquidity. Distributable cash flow is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Distributable cash flow is presented here because it is a widely accepted financial indicator used by investors to compare partnership performance. It also is used by management for internal analysis and our performance units. We believe that this measure provides investors an enhanced perspective of the operating performance of our assets and the cash our business is generating.

Set forth below is our calculation of distributable cash flow.

* Maintenance capital expenditures are capital expenditures made to replace partially or fully depreciated assets in order to maintain the existing operating capacity of our assets and to extend their useful lives. Maintenance capital expenditures include expenditures required to maintain equipment reliability, tankage and pipeline integrity, and safety and to address environmental regulations.

Partners' equity(6)(7) $ 352,653 $ 638,676
 

(6) As a master limited partnership, we distribute our available cash, which historically has exceeded our net income attributable to Holly Energy Partners because depreciation and amortization expense represents a non-cash charge against income. The result is a decline in partners’ equity since our regular quarterly distributions have exceeded our quarterly net income attributable to Holly Energy Partners. Additionally, if the assets contributed and acquired from HollyFrontier while we were a consolidated variable interest entity of HollyFrontier had been acquired from third parties, our acquisition cost in excess of HollyFrontier’s basis in the transferred assets of $320.1 million would have been recorded as increases to our properties and equipment and intangible assets instead of decreases to partners’ equity.

(7) December 31, 2011 amounts have been recast as if UNEV had been under our control at December 31, 2011. The impact on partners' equity from this recast was an increase of $314 million at December 31, 2011. Accounting rules for transactions between companies under common control require pre-acquisition periods to reflect HFC's historic basis in transferred assets and liabilities, notwithstanding how the transaction is ultimately financed. With the close of the UNEV acquisition in July 2012, we adjusted partners' equity to reflect the actual financing of the transaction. This included cash consideration of approximately $260.9 million which was financed through long-term borrowings. The reduction in partners' equity when comparing the reported periods is due principally to the recast accounting treatment.
