Holly Corporation Reports First Quarter 2011 Results

Thursday, May 05, 2011

Holly Corporation Reports First Quarter 2011 Results07:00 EDT Thursday, May 05, 2011DALLAS, May 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Holly Corporation (NYSE: HOC) ("Holly" or the "Company") today reported first quarter 2011 financial results.  For the quarter, net income attributable to Holly stockholders was $84.7 million ($1.59 per basic and $1.58 per diluted share) compared to a net loss of $28.1 million ($0.53 per basic and diluted share) for the first quarter of 2010.For the quarter, net income attributable to our stockholders increased by $112.8 million compared to the same period of 2010.  This increase was due principally to the effects of significantly higher refinery gross margins during the current year first quarter. This factor was somewhat offset by decreased sales volumes of produced refined products.  Overall refinery gross margins were $15.72 per produced barrel, a 183% increase compared to $5.56 for the first quarter of 2010.  For the quarter, our overall refinery production levels averaged 209,500 barrels per day ("BPD"), a 3% decrease over the same period of 2010 due principally to the effects of unplanned production downtime at our Navajo refinery during the quarter, partially offset by increased production at the Tulsa refinery."We are very pleased with our first quarter results, reflecting one of the most profitable quarters in Holly's history ? despite lower throughput rates at our Navajo refinery due to unscheduled downtime during the quarter," said Matthew Clifton, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Holly.  "Significant year-over-year margin improvements at each of our refineries, contributed to the much improved EBITDA levels of $181.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011, compared to $0.7 million for the same period of 2010.  Our Tulsa refinery, aided by strong transportation fuel cracks and attractive lube margins, was our strongest contributor with over $78 million in EBITDA during the quarter.  "Our processing of 100% lower priced WTI related crudes combined with strong diesel cracks and unseasonably robust gasoline cracks at all of our refineries helped fuel these improved results.  As a result, refinery gross margins in the 2011 first quarter were at historically high levels, significantly better than the low margins experienced in early 2010.  "As we start the second quarter, continued discounts on WTI price related crudes compared to world oil prices and higher gasoline and diesel cracks have improved the gross margins at all three refineries relative to the first quarter.  Production at our Navajo refinery has returned to planned levels after being reduced during the first quarter due to the resultant impacts of a plant-wide power failure and bad weather.  At Tulsa, our west crude unit was brought down last week to address a mechanical problem. We expect to return this unit to service early next week.  This unscheduled downtime should have a limited effect on the quarter due to our ability to augment production by reducing intermediate feedstock inventories during the downtime and by running at slightly higher crude rates for the remainder of the quarter."We have completed the diesel desulfurization project at our Tulsa refinery, and progress continues on our integration efforts in Tulsa with the pipeline integration expected to be mechanically complete later this summer.  We expect these projects to lower operating expenses and improve the profit producing potential of what has been a strong profit contributor since last spring.  "At March 31, 2011 our cash and marketable securities stood at $293 million.  Excluding the Holly Energy Partners cash and debt that is non-recourse to Holly, our cash adjusted debt to total capitalization ratio was at 7%, ranking our balance sheet as one of the strongest among our independent refining peers," Clifton said. Sales and other revenues for the first quarter of 2010 were $2,326.6 million, a 24% increase compared to the three months ended March 31, 2010.  This increase was due to the effects of a 30% year-over-year increase in first quarter refined product sales prices that was partially offset by a 3% decrease in overall volumes of produced refined products sold.  The volume decrease was primarily due to the effects of unplanned production downtime at our Navajo refinery during the current year first quarter.  Cost of products sold was $1,984.6 million, a 15% increase compared to the first quarter of 2010 due mainly to higher crude oil acquisition costs, partially offset by a decrease in volumes of produced refined products sold.  The Company has scheduled a webcast conference call for today, May 5, 2011, at 4:00 PM Eastern Time to discuss financial results.  This webcast may be accessed at: http://www.videonewswire.com/event.asp?id=78731.  An audio archive of this webcast will be available using the above noted link through May 18, 2011.Holly Corporation, headquartered in Dallas, Texas, is an independent petroleum refiner and marketer that produces high value light

segments are included in Corporate and Other.  Intersegment transactions are eliminated in our consolidated financial statements and are included in Consolidations and Eliminations. The Refining segment includes the operations of our Navajo, Woods Cross and Tulsa refineries and Holly Asphalt Company ("Holly Asphalt").  The Refining segment involves the purchase and refining of crude oil and wholesale and branded marketing of refined products, such as gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel and specialty lubricant products.  The petroleum products produced by the Refining segment are primarily marketed in the Southwest, Rocky Mountain and Mid-Continent regions of the United States and northern Mexico.  Additionally, the Refining segment includes specialty lubricant products produced at our Tulsa refinery that are marketed throughout North America and are distributed in Central and South America.  Holly Asphalt manufactures and markets asphalt and asphalt products in Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Texas and northern Mexico.The HEP segment involves all of the operations of HEP.  HEP owns and operates a system of petroleum product and crude gathering pipelines in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Utah, distribution terminals in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, and Washington and refinery tankage in New Mexico, Utah and Oklahoma.  Revenues are generated by charging tariffs for transporting petroleum products and crude oil through its pipelines, by leasing certain pipeline capacity to Alon USA, Inc., by charging fees for terminalling refined products and other hydrocarbons, and storing and providing other services at its storage tanks and terminals. The HEP segment also includes a 25% interest in SLC Pipeline LLC ("SLC Pipeline") that services refineries in the Salt Lake City, Utah area.  Revenues from the HEP segment are earned through transactions with unaffiliated parties for pipeline transportation, rental and terminalling operations as well as revenues relating to pipeline transportation services provided for our refining operations.

depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") to amounts reported under generally accepted accounting principles in financial statements.Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, which we refer to as EBITDA, is calculated as net income attributable to Holly Corporation stockholders plus (i) interest expense, net of interest income, (ii) income tax provision, and (iii) depreciation and amortization.  EBITDA is not a calculation provided for under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States; 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 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 is also used by our management for internal analysis and as a basis for financial covenants. Set forth below is our calculation of EBITDA.Three Months EndedMarch 31,20112010(In thousands)Net income (loss) attributable to Holly Corporation stockholders$  84,694$  (28,094)    Add income tax

margin are non-GAAP performance measures that are used by our management and others to compare our refining performance to that of other companies in our industry.  We believe these margin measures are helpful to investors in evaluating our refining performance on a relative and absolute basis.We calculate refinery gross margin and net operating margin using net sales, cost of products and operating expenses, in each case averaged per produced barrel sold.  These two margins do not include the effect of depreciation and amortization.  Each of these component performance measures can be reconciled directly to our Consolidated Statements of Income.Other companies in our industry may not calculate these performance measures in the same manner.Refinery Gross MarginRefinery gross margin
