February 16, 2017

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PBF Energy Inc. (NYSE:PBF) today reported fourth quarter 2016 income from operations of $139.8 million as compared to a loss from operations of $178.4 million for fourth quarter of 2015. Excluding special items, fourth quarter 2016 loss from operations was $60.7 million as compared to income from operations of $167.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2015. Special items in the fourth quarter 2016 results include a net, non-cash, after-tax gain of $122.2 million, or $1.17 per share, lower-of-cost-or-market ("LCM") inventory adjustment and an after-tax benefit of $9.8 million, or $0.09 per share, related to a change in the tax receivable liability agreement. Additionally, included in our results was a net after-tax charge totaling approximately $7.2 million, or $0.07 per share, related to an inventory layer decrement.

The company reported fourth quarter 2016 net income of $71.8 million, and net income attributable to PBF Energy Inc. of $54.6 million or $0.54 per share. This compares to net loss of $121.5 million, and net loss attributable to PBF Energy Inc. of $119.5 million or $1.24 per share for the fourth quarter 2015. Adjusted fully-converted net loss for the fourth quarter 2016, excluding special items, was $74.9 million, or $0.71 per share on a fully-exchanged, fully-diluted basis, as described below, compared to adjusted fully-converted net income of $71.0 million, or $0.70 per share, for the fourth quarter 2015.

Net income attributable to PBF Energy Inc. for the year-ended December 31, 2016 was $170.8 million, or $1.74 per share as compared to net income of $146.4 million, or $1.65 per share, for the year-ended December 31, 2015. Income from operations for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 were $498.9 million and $360.1 million, respectively. Excluding special items, loss from operations was $22.5 million for the year-ended December 31, 2016 as compared to income from operations of $787.3 million for the year-ended December 31, 2015. Adjusted fully-converted net loss for the year 2016, excluding special items, was $145.7 million, or $1.41 per share on a fully-exchanged, fully-diluted basis, as compared to adjusted fully-converted net income of $402.1 million, or $4.27 per share, for the fourth quarter 2015.  PBF Energy's financial results reflect the consolidation of PBF Logistics LP (NYSE: PBFX), a master limited partnership of which PBF indirectly owns the general partner and approximately 44.2% of the limited partner interests as of December 31, 2016.

"Our fourth quarter and full-year 2016 results reflect the numerous market and regulatory headwinds faced by the independent refiners and we, as a company, did not operate our assets to the fullest of their potential," said Tom Nimbley, PBF Energy's Chairman and CEO, "Looking ahead, with the proceeds from our recent equity raise, we are pleased to be starting the year with a strong and flexible balance sheet. We are committed to the continued integration of both Torrance and Chalmette, and further optimizing our entire system in 2017."

PBF Logistics will proceed with two organic growth projects comprised of the construction of a 625,000 barrel tank at PBF Energy's Chalmette refinery and development of a natural gas pipeline to supply PBF Energy's Paulsboro refinery.  PBF Logistics expects to spend approximately $82.1 million dollars to complete both projects at an attractive return.  Both projects will be funded by PBF Logistics and supported by long-term agreements with minimum volume commitments from PBF Energy.

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 13, 2017, to holders of record as of February 27, 2017.

Outlook
For the first quarter 2017, we expect East Coast total throughput to average 310,000 to 330,000 barrels per day; Mid-Continent total throughput is expected to average 135,000 to 145,000 barrels per day; Gulf Coast total throughput is expected to average 150,000 to 160,000 barrels per day and West Coast total throughput is expected to average 145,000 to 155,000 barrels per day.  These figures include the impact of the previously announced planned turnarounds at the Delaware City and Chalmette refineries.

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), Adjusted EBITDA and projected EBITDA related to the refinery acquisitions. PBF 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'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.

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.

Conference Call Information
PBF Energy's senior management will host a conference call and webcast regarding quarterly results and other business matters on Thursday, February 16, 2017, at 8:30 a.m. ET.  The call is being webcast and can be accessed at PBF Energy's website, http://www.pbfenergy.com. The call can also be heard by dialing (888) 632-3382 or (785) 424-1677, conference ID: PBFQ416. The audio replay will be available two hours after the end of the call through March 6, 2017, by dialing (800) 283-5758 or (402) 220-0863.

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 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 these measures 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 GAAP. The differences between adjusted fully-converted and 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 PBF Energy's Class A common stock.
















(3) Represents an adjustment to reflect the company's statutory corporate tax rate of approximately 39.1% and 39.6% for the 2016 and 2015 periods, respectively, applied to the net income (loss) 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 lower of cost or market (LCM) adjustments and changes in the tax receivable agreement liability (TRA). 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 TRA 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 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, 2016, the company recorded an adjustment to value its inventories to the lower of cost or market which resulted in a net pre-tax benefit of $521.3 million reflecting the change in the lower of cost or market inventory reserve from $1,117.3 million at December 31, 2015 to $596.0 million at December 31, 2016. During the three months ended December 31, 2016, the company recorded an adjustment to the lower of cost or market which resulted in a net pre-tax benefit of $200.5 million reflecting the change in the lower of cost or market inventory reserve from $796.5 million at September 30, 2016 to $596.0 million at December 31, 2016.

 

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 charge 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 charge 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.

 

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 39.1% and 39.6% for the 2016 and 2015 periods, respectively.
















(6) Represents an adjustment to weighted-average diluted shares outstanding to assume the full exchange of existing PBF LLC Series A Units as described in footnote 2 above.
















(7) 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 (to the extent the impact of such exchange would not be anti-dilutive). Common stock equivalents excludes the effects of warrants and options to purchase 5,701,750 and 2,943,750 shares of PBF Energy Class A common stock because they are anti-dilutive for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Common stock equivalents excludes the effects of warrants and options to purchase 5,923,625 and 1,335,000 shares of PBF Energy Class A common stock because they are anti-dilutive for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
















(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 additional metrics on 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, 2016, the Refining segment includes the operations of our oil refineries and related facilities in Delaware City, Delaware, Paulsboro, New Jersey, Toledo, Ohio, New Orleans, Louisiana and Torrance, California. The Logistics segment includes the operations of PBF Logistics LP ("PBFX"), a growth-oriented master limited partnership which owns or leases, operates, develops and acquires crude oil and refined petroleum products terminals, pipelines, storage facilities and similar logistics assets. PBFX's assets consist of rail and truck terminals and unloading racks, tank farms and pipelines that were acquired from or contributed by PBF LLC and are located at, or nearby, the Company's refineries. Additionally, PBFX acquired the East Coast Terminals in 2016 which was its first third party acquisition. Further in 2016, PBFX acquired from PBF LLC 50% of the issued and outstanding limited liability company interests of TVPC, whose assets consist of the Torrance Valley Pipeline. PBFX provides various rail, truck and marine terminaling services, pipeline transportation services and storage services to PBF Holding and/or its subsidiaries and third party customers through fee-based commercial agreements. Apart from the East Coast Terminals, PBFX currently does not generate significant third party revenue and, as such, intersegment related-party revenues are eliminated in consolidation. Prior to the PBFX Offering, PBFX was not considered to be a separate reportable segment. From a PBF Energy perspective, the Company's chief operating decision maker evaluates the Logistics segment as a whole without regard to any of PBFX's individual segments.


(10)  As reported by Platts.


(11)  Gross refining margin and gross refining margin per barrel of throughput are Non-GAAP measures because they exclude refinery 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 helpful 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. Gross refining margin and gross refining margin per barrel of throughput 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.


(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 Torrance refinery subsequent to its acquisition on July 1, 2016 and 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 $12.9 million and $18.2 million for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively, and $16.1 million and $20.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, 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 39.1% and 39.6% for the 2016 and 2015 periods presented, respectively.


(16) The Refining segment includes capital expenditures of $2.7 million for the working capital settlement related to the acquisition of the Chalmette refinery that was finalized in the first quarter of 2016 and $971.9 million for the acquisition of the Torrance refinery in the third quarter of 2016. The Logistics segment includes capital expenditures of $98.4 million for the PBFX Plains Asset Purchase in the second quarter of 2016.


(17) The total debt to capitalization ratio is calculated by dividing total debt by the sum of total debt and total equity. This ratio is a measurement which is presented in our annual and interim filings and management believes this ratio is useful to investors in analyzing our leverage. Net debt and the net debt to capitalization ratio are Non-GAAP measures. Net debt is calculated by subtracting cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities from total debt. We believe these measurements are also useful to investors since we have the ability to and may decide to use a portion of our cash and cash equivalents to retire or pay down our debt. Marketable securities included in net debt fully collateralize PBFX's Term Loan. Additionally, as described in footnote 4 above, we have also presented the total debt to capitalization and net debt to capitalization ratios excluding the cumulative effects of special items on equity.
