08:30 EDT Friday, November 01, 2013

-- 2013 third quarter cash dividend of 75 cents per share, bringing 2013 cumulative cash dividends to $14.25 per share

SUGAR LAND, Texas, Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CVR Energy, Inc. (NYSE: CVI) today announced third quarter 2013 net income of $44.0 million, or 51 cents per diluted share, on net sales of $1,977.1 million, compared to net income of $208.9 million, or $2.41 per diluted share, on net sales of $2,409.6 million for the third quarter of 2012.

"Our third quarter results were heavily impacted by unprecedented downtime related to the Fluid Catalytic Cracking Unit outage at CVR Refining's Coffeyville refinery. Significantly weakened crack spreads and product basis, as well as tightening crude differentials in late August, further impacted our results," said Jack Lipinski, chief executive officer. "The refinery resumed full operations on Sept. 11 and maintained strong operational performance for the remainder of the quarter."

For the first nine months of 2013, net income was $392.4 million, or $4.52 per diluted share, on net sales of $6,549.8 million, compared to net income of $338.4 million, or $3.86 per diluted share, on net sales of $6,686.5 million for the same period in 2012.

The company also announced a third quarter 2013 cash dividend of 75 cents per share. The dividend, as declared by CVR Energy's Board of Directors, will be paid on Nov. 18, 2013, to stockholders of record on Nov. 11, 2013.

Today, CVR Energy's petroleum subsidiary, CVR Refining, announced a 2013 third quarter cash distribution of 30 cents per common unit, and CVR Partners, CVR Energy's fertilizer subsidiary, announced a 2013 third quarter cash distribution of 36 cents per common unit.

"We continue to return cash to stockholders through quarterly dividends," Lipinski said. "CVR Energy's third quarter cash dividend of 75 cents per share brings the cumulative cash dividends paid or declared for the first nine months of 2013 to $14.25 per share."

(1)

Gross tons produced for ammonia represent the total ammonia produced, including ammonia produced that was upgraded into UAN. As a result of the UAN expansion project completed in February 2013, the Nitrogen Fertilizer segment now upgrades substantially all of the ammonia they produce into UAN. The net tons available for sale represent the ammonia available for sale that was not upgraded into UAN.

(2)

In addition to the produced ammonia, the Nitrogen Fertilizer segment acquired approximately 1,000 tons and 5,000 tons of ammonia, which was upgraded to UAN during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

(3)

Plant gate sales per ton represent net sales less freight and hydrogen revenue divided by product sales volume in tons in the reporting period and is shown in order to provide a pricing measure that is comparable across the fertilizer industry.

(4)

On-stream factor is the total number of hours operated divided by the total number of hours in the reporting period and is included as a measure of operating efficiency. Excluding the impact of the planned downtime associated with replacement of the damaged catalyst, the on-stream factors for the three months ended September 30, 2013 would have been 98.7% for gasifier, 98.2% for ammonia and 97.8% for UAN.

Excluding the impact of the UAN expansion coming on-line, the planned downtime associated with replacement of the damaged catalyst, the unplanned Linde air separation unit outages and the unplanned downtime associated with weather issues, the on-stream factors for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 would have been 99.3% for gasifier, 98.7% for ammonia and 97.7% for UAN.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the actual results in accordance with GAAP for the applicable periods, the Company also uses non-GAAP measures as noted above which are reconciled to our GAAP-based results below. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an alternative for GAAP results. The adjustments are provided to enhance an overall understanding of the Company's financial performance for the applicable periods and are indicators management believes are relevant and useful for planning and forecasting future periods.

Adjusted net income is not a recognized term under GAAP and should not be substituted for net income (loss) as a measure of our performance but rather should be utilized as a supplemental measure of financial performance in evaluating our business. Management believes that adjusted net income provides relevant and useful information that enables external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies to better understand and evaluate our ongoing operating results and allow for greater transparency in the review of our overall financial, operational and economic performance.

Refining margin per crude oil throughput barrel is a measurement calculated as the difference between net sales and cost of product sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization). Refining margin is a non-GAAP measure that we believe is important to investors in evaluating our refineries' performance as a general indication of the amount above our cost of product sold that we are able to sell refined products. Each of the components used in this calculation (net sales and cost of product sold exclusive of depreciation and amortization) can be taken directly from our Statement of Operations. Our calculation of refining margin may differ from similar calculations of other companies in our industry, thereby limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. In order to derive the refining margin per crude oil throughput barrel, we utilize the total dollar figures for refining margin as derived above and divide by the applicable number of crude oil throughput barrels for the period. We believe that refining margin is important to enable investors to better understand and evaluate our ongoing operating results and allow for greater transparency in the review of our overall financial, operational and economic performance.

Refining margin per crude oil throughput barrel adjusted for FIFO impact is a measurement calculated as the difference between net sales and cost of product sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization) adjusted for FIFO impacts. Refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact is a non-GAAP measure that we believe is important to investors in evaluating our refineries' performance as a general indication of the amount above our cost of product sold (taking into account the impact of our utilization of FIFO) that we are able to sell refined products. Our calculation of refining margin adjusted for FIFO impact may differ from calculations of other companies in our industry, thereby limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. Under our FIFO accounting method, changes in crude oil prices can cause fluctuations in the inventory valuation of our crude oil, work in process and finished goods, thereby resulting in favorable FIFO impacts when crude oil prices increase and unfavorable FIFO impacts when crude oil prices decrease.

Gross profit is calculated as the difference between net sales, cost of product sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization), direct operating expenses (exclusive of depreciation and amortization), major scheduled turnaround expenses and depreciation and amortization. Gross profit per throughput barrel is calculated as gross profit as derived above divided by our refineries' crude oil throughput volumes for the respective periods presented. Gross profit is a non-GAAP measure that should not be substituted for operating income. Management believes it is important to investors in evaluating our refineries' performance and our ongoing operating results. Our calculation of gross profit may differ from similar calculations of other companies in our industry, thereby limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA represents net income before (i) interest expense and other financing costs, net of interest income, (ii) income tax expense and (iii) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA adjusted for FIFO impacts (favorable) unfavorable, share-based compensation, major scheduled turnaround expenses, loss on disposition of fixed assets, gain (loss) on derivatives, net, current period settlements on derivative contracts, loss on extinguishment of debt and expenses associated with the Gary-Williams acquisition. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized terms under GAAP and should not be substituted for net income or cash flow from operations. Management believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA enables investors to better understand and evaluate our ongoing operating results and allows for greater transparency in reviewing our overall financial, operational and economic performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA presented by other companies may not be comparable to our presentation, since each company may define these terms differently.

Adjusted Petroleum and Nitrogen Fertilizer EBITDA represents operating income adjusted for FIFO impacts (favorable) unfavorable; share-based compensation, non-cash; major scheduled turnaround expenses; current period settlements on derivative contracts; loss on disposition of fixed assets; depreciation and amortization and other income (expense). We present Adjusted EBITDA by operating segment because it is the starting point for CVR Refining's and CVR Partner's available cash for distribution. Adjusted EBITDA by operating segment is not a recognized term under GAAP and should not be substituted for operating income as a measure of performance. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA by operating segment enables investors to better understand CVR Refining's and CVR Partner's ability to make distributions to their common unitholders, evaluate our ongoing operating results and allows for greater transparency in reviewing our overall financial, operational and economic performance. Adjusted EBITDA presented by other companies may not be comparable to our presentation, since each company may define these terms differently.

Derivatives Summary. To reduce the basis risk between the price of products for Group 3 and that of the NYMEX associated with selling forward derivative contracts for NYMEX crack spreads, the Petroleum segment may enter into basis swap positions to lock the price difference. If the difference between the price of products on the NYMEX and Group 3 (or some other price benchmark as the Petroleum segment may deem appropriate) is different than the value contracted in the swap, then the Petroleum segment will receive from or owe to the counterparty the difference on each unit of product contracted in the swap, thereby completing the locking of the margin. From time to time the Petroleum segment holds various NYMEX positions through a third-party clearing house. In addition, the Petroleum segment enters into commodity swap contracts. The physical volumes are not exchanged and these contracts are net settled with cash.

The table below summarizes open commodity derivatives positions as of September 30, 2013. The positions are primarily in the form of 'crack spread' swap agreements with financial counterparties, wherein the Petroleum segment will receive the fixed prices noted below. As of September 30, 2013, the open commodity derivative positions below were comprised of approximately 70.9% for distillate crack swaps, 25.5% for gasoline crack swaps and 3.6% for 2-1-1 crack swaps.
