PBF Energy Announces First Quarter 2024 Results and Declares Dividend of $0.25 per Share

PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- PBF Energy Inc. (NYSE:PBF) today reported first quarter 2024 income from operations of $145.1 million as compared to income from operations of $532.4 million for the first quarter of 2023.

The company reported first quarter 2024 net income of $107.5 million and net income attributable to PBF Energy Inc. of $106.6 million or $0.86 per share. This compares to net income of $385.9 million, and net income attributable to PBF Energy Inc. of $382.1 million or $2.86 per share for the first quarter 2023. Non-cash special items included in the first quarter 2024 results, which increased net income by a net, after-tax benefit of $0.9 million, or $0.01 per share, primarily consisted of a change in fair value of the contingent consideration associated with the acquisition of the Martinez refinery and related logistics assets and our share of the St. Bernard Renewables LLC ("SBR") lower-of-cost-or-market ("LCM") inventory adjustment, partially offset by a decrease to our gain on formation of our SBR equity method investment. Adjusted fully-converted net income for the first quarter 2024, excluding special items, was $106.4 million, or $0.85 per share on a fully-exchanged, fully-diluted basis, as described below, compared to adjusted fully-converted net income of $371.4 million or $2.76 per share, for the first quarter 2023.

Matt Lucey, PBF Energy's President and CEO, said, "2024 is off to a positive start. We undertook significant planned maintenance in our East Coast and Mid-continent regions and, following that work, have a clean run at those refineries for the remainder of the year. In the near-term, we have planned maintenance during the second quarter in California."

Mr. Lucey continued, "Looking ahead, our balance sheet and the safe, reliable operations of all our assets remain our primary focus. We experienced somewhat normal seasonality in the product markets at the end of 2023 and through the early part of the first quarter. Industry maintenance and seasonal shifts in demand have improved market conditions as we approach the summer driving season. We continue to prioritize capital allocation to the opportunities that promote the greatest long-term shareholder value and, to that end, we announced a $0.25 per share dividend and bought back $125 million of shares in the first quarter."

PBF Energy Inc. Declares Dividend
The company announced today that it will pay a quarterly dividend of $0.25 per share of Class A common stock on May 30, 2024, to holders of record at the close of business on May 16, 2024.

St. Bernard Renewables
SBR averaged approximately 18,000 barrels per day of renewable diesel production in the first quarter. In March, SBR's Provisional Application to CARB was approved and SBR is now benefiting from a Provisional Carbon Intensity ("CI") scores that reflect the lower-CI feedstocks being processed. This will result in improved project economics related to the California market.

PBF Strategic Update and Outlook
PBF remains committed to the safety and reliability of our operations. Through successful operational execution, we seek to maintain the quality of our balance sheet and preserve the ability of our assets to continue supporting our long-term strategic goal of increasing the value of our company. At quarter-end, we had approximately $1.4 billion of cash and approximately $1.2 billion of total debt.

Our operational execution and balance sheet improvements have generated significant value for our investors in the near-term and, more importantly, demonstrate our commitment to fiscal discipline, long-term value and shareholder returns.

As always, the safety and reliability of our core operations are paramount. We continue investing in all our assets and expect full-year 2024 refining capital expenditures to be in the $800 to $850 million range. We are currently completing our East Coast and Mid-Continent turnarounds and have an upcoming turnaround at Martinez in the second quarter.

Timing of planned maintenance and throughput ranges provided reflect current expectations and are subject to change based on market conditions and other factors. Second quarter throughput expectations are included in the table below.

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.

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 our results across the periods presented and facilitates an understanding of our operating results. We also use these measures to evaluate our 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 6.
















(2) Represents the elimination of the noncontrolling interest associated with the ownership by the members of PBF Energy Company LLC ("PBF LLC") other than PBF Energy Inc., as if such members had fully exchanged their PBF LLC Series A Units for shares of PBF Energy Class A common stock.
















(3) Represents an adjustment to reflect PBF Energy's estimated annualized statutory corporate tax rate of approximately 26.0% for the 2024 and 2023 periods, applied to net income attributable to noncontrolling interest for all periods presented. The adjustment assumes the full exchange of existing PBF 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 operations excluding special items, EBITDA excluding special items and gross refining margin excluding special items. Special items for the periods presented relate to our share of the SBR LCM inventory reserve, net changes in fair value of contingent consideration, gain on land sales, and changes in our gain on the formation of the SBR equity method investment, all as discussed further below. Additionally, the cumulative effects of all current and prior period special items on equity are shown in footnote 13. 

 

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. 

 

Special Items: 
















SBR LCM inventory adjustment - The lower of cost or market ("LCM") adjustment is a GAAP requirement related to inventory valuation that mandates inventory to be stated at the lower of cost or market. During the three months ended March 31, 2024, SBR recorded an adjustment to value its inventory to the LCM which increased its income from operations by $13.2 million. Our Equity loss in investee includes our 50% share of this adjustment. This LCM adjustment increased our income from operations and net income by $6.6 million and $4.9 million, respectively.
















Change in fair value of contingent consideration, net - During the three months ended March 31, 2024, we recorded a net change in fair value of the Martinez Contingent Consideration which increased income from operations and net income by $3.3 million and $2.4 million, respectively. During the three months ended March 31, 2023, we recorded a change in fair value of the Martinez Contingent Consideration, which increased income from operations and net income by $16.3 million and $12.1 million, respectively.
















Loss on formation of SBR equity method investment - During the three months ended March 31, 2024, we recorded a reduction of our gain associated with the formation of the SBR equity method investment which decreased income from operations and net income by $8.7 million and $6.4 million, respectively. There was no such gain or loss during the three  months ended March 31, 2023. 
















Gain on land sales - During the three months ended March 31, 2023, we recorded a gain on the sale of a separate parcel of real property acquired as part of the Torrance refinery, but not part of the refinery itself, which increased income from operations and net income by $1.7 million and $1.3 million, respectively. There were no gains or losses on land sales during the three months ended March 31, 2024.
















(5) 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.


(6) Represents weighted-average diluted shares outstanding assuming the conversion of all common stock equivalents, including options and warrants for PBF LLC Series A Units and performance share 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) for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. Common stock equivalents exclude the effects of performance share units and options and warrants to purchase 29,500 shares of PBF Energy Class A common stock and PBF LLC Series A units because they are anti-dilutive for the three months ended March 31, 2023. For periods showing a net loss, all common stock equivalents and unvested restricted stock are considered anti-dilutive.
















(7) Earnings before Interest, Income Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA") and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental measures of performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before adjustments for items such as stock-based compensation expense, change in the fair value of catalyst obligations, our share of the SBR LCM inventory adjustment, net change in the fair value of contingent consideration, gain on land sales, loss on the formation of the SBR equity method investment, and certain other non-cash items. 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.
















(8) 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 March 31, 2024, the Refining segment includes the operations of our oil refineries and related facilities in Delaware City, Delaware, Paulsboro, New Jersey, Toledo, Ohio, Chalmette, Louisiana, Torrance, California and Martinez, California. The Logistics segment includes the operations of PBF Logistics LP ("PBFX"), an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of PBF Energy and PBF LLC, 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 primarily consist of rail and truck terminals and unloading racks, storage facilities and pipelines, a substantial portion of which were acquired from or contributed by PBF LLC and are located at, or nearby, our refineries. 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.

 

PBFX currently does not generate significant third party revenue and intersegment related-party revenues are eliminated in consolidation. From a PBF Energy perspective, our chief operating decision maker evaluates the Logistics segment as a whole without regard to any of PBFX's individual operating segments.


(9)  Our market indicators table summarizes certain market indicators relating to our operating results as reported by Platts, a division of The McGraw-Hill Companies. Effective RIN basket price is recalculated based on information as reported by Argus.


(10) Gross refining margin and gross refining margin per barrel of throughput are Non-GAAP measures because they exclude refining operating expenses, depreciation and amortization and gross margin of the Logistics segment. 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 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.


(11) Represents refining operating expenses, including corporate-owned logistics assets, excluding depreciation and amortization, divided by total crude oil and feedstocks throughput.
















(12) We define heavy crude oil as crude oil with American Petroleum Institute ("API") gravity less than 24 degrees. We define medium crude oil as crude oil with API gravity between 24 and 35 degrees. We define light crude oil as crude oil with API gravity higher than 35 degrees.


(13) 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 that management believes 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 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. Additionally, we have also presented the total debt to capitalization and net debt to capitalization ratios excluding the cumulative effects of special items on equity.
