Marathon Petroleum Corp. Reports Fourth-Quarter Results

Includes results from Andeavor combination that closed Oct 1st

FINDLAY, Ohio, Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Reported fourth-quarter earnings of $951 million, or $1.35 per diluted share; results included costs of $1.06 per diluted share primarily from transaction-related items
  • Returned $4.2 billion of capital to shareholders in 2018, including $675 million in share repurchases in the fourth quarter
  • Announced 15% increase in quarterly dividend to $0.53 per share

Marathon Petroleum Corp. (MPC) today reported fourth-quarter 2018 earnings of $951 million, or $1.35 per diluted share. Earnings included costs of $745 million, or $1.06 per diluted share, due to purchase accounting related inventory effects, expenses associated with the Andeavor combination, and MPLX debt extinguishment costs. This compares with $2.02 billion, or $4.09 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2017. Fourth quarter 2017 results included a benefit of $1.5 billion, or $3.04 per diluted share, resulting from a change in the corporate tax rate.

"This extraordinary fourth quarter represents an early indication of the tremendous value creation opportunities resulting from this powerful combination," said Gary R. Heminger, chairman and chief executive officer. "By executing the strategy outlined during our recent Investor Day, we have realized $160 million of synergies in just three months and continue to expect total annual gross run-rate synergies of up to $600 million at year-end 2019 and $1.4 billion by the end of 2021."

Heminger continued, "These successes combined with a favorable refining margin environment and record performance in our retail segment propelled significant earnings growth during the quarter. Despite normal seasonal trends, we remain optimistic about the prospects for our business in 2019.  The transformative combination we have undertaken this past year not only expands our platform and broadens our commercial opportunities, we believe it uniquely positions us to capture market opportunities, enhance the stability of our cash flow, and create long-term value for our shareholders."

In 2018, MPC returned $4.2 billion of capital to shareholders, including $3.3 billion of share repurchases. Additionally, on January 28, 2019, MPC announced a 15 percent increase in the quarterly dividend, to $0.53 per share.  The company remains committed to returning at least 50 percent of discretionary free cash flow* to shareholders over the long term through a combination of dividends and share repurchases while maintaining its investment grade credit profile.

Full-year 2018 earnings were $2.78 billion, or $5.28 per diluted share, compared with $3.43 billion, or $6.70 per diluted share, for full-year 2017. 2018 earnings reflect one quarter of results from the combined business following the closing of the Andeavor acquisition on October 1, 2018.  Full-year earnings also included costs of $789 million, or $1.50 per diluted share, primarily due to purchase accounting related inventory effects and expenses associated with the Andeavor combination. 2017 earnings included a net benefit of $1.5 billion, or $2.93 per diluted share, resulting from a change in the corporate tax rate.

Total income from operations was $2.02 billion in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $5.57 billion for full-year 2018, compared with $1.17 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017 and $4.02 billion for full-year 2017. MPC reported adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) of $4.1 billion for the fourth quarter 2018 as compared to $1.8 billion for fourth quarter 2017. See accompanying reconciliation table.

*Discretionary free cash flow = operating cash flow less maintenance and regulatory capital

Synergy Update and Other Items

MPC realized $160 million of synergies related to the Andeavor combination in the fourth quarter.  Approximately 60 percent were commercial synergies primarily related to crude acquisition and supply.  The remaining synergy capture was the result of implementing refining best practices and expertise across the new enterprise as well as procurement and corporate synergies.

Fourth quarter 2018 results included several factors that reduced reported earnings.  MPC's Refining & Marketing (R&M) segment results included estimated costs of $759 million reflecting the difference between recording acquired inventory at fair value on the closing date of the acquisition under purchase accounting and the costs used to value inventory at year end. MPC also incurred $183 million of transaction-related costs for financial and legal advisors, employee severance, and other expenses in connection with the Andeavor acquisition.  Lastly, MPLX incurred approximately $60 million of debt extinguishment costs.

(a)

R&M segment results for the 2018 periods included estimated costs of $759 million due to purchase accounting related inventory effects.

Refining & Marketing

R&M segment income from operations was $923 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $2.48 billion for full-year 2018. Results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2018 included estimated costs of $759 million due to purchase accounting related inventory effects. Fourth quarter and full-year 2017 segment income from operations was $732 million and $2.32 billion, respectively.

The increase in quarter-over-quarter segment results was primarily due to higher throughputs as a result of the Andeavor combination as well as wider WCS- and WTI-based crude differentials. Total refinery utilization was 94 percent during the quarter, resulting in total throughputs of 3.1 million barrels per day, compared to 2.0 million barrels per day in fourth quarter 2017. These favorable effects more than offset the $231 million reduction in R&M segment results associated with the February 1, 2018 dropdown transaction. Prior period R&M segment results do not reflect the impact of the dropdown.

The U.S. Gulf Coast, Chicago, and West Coast blended industry 3-2-1 crack spread was $9.43 in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to $10.83 in the fourth quarter of 2017. These crack spreads are net of RIN crack adjustments of $0.95 and $3.99 for the fourth quarter of 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Midstream

Midstream segment income from operations, which primarily reflects the results of MPLX and Andeavor Logistics, was $889 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $2.75 billion for full-year 2018, compared with $343 million and $1.34 billion for the fourth quarter and full-year 2017, respectively.

The increase in quarterly results was primarily due to contributions of $230 million from Andeavor Logistics, and $231 million from the February 1, 2018, dropdown of refining logistics and fuels distribution services to MPLX.  Prior-period Midstream results do not reflect the impact of these items.  The remaining $85 million increase in Midstream segment results was driven primarily by MPLX's record pipeline throughput volumes as well as record gathered and processed volumes.

Retail

Retail segment income from operations was $613 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $1.03 billion for full-year 2018, compared with $148 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 and $729 million for full-year 2017.

Fourth quarter 2018 results represented a record quarter for MPC's former Speedway segment, even before considering the significant earnings contribution from the legacy Andeavor retail operations.  The increase in quarter-over-quarter segment results was primarily due to higher fuel margins and merchandise sales across the combined platform.  The retail fuel margin increased to 32.35 cents per gallon in the fourth quarter of 2018 from 17.72 cents per gallon in the fourth quarter of 2017.

MPC continues to make progress converting the acquired company owned-and-operated stores to the Speedway brand, converting 170 sites in Minnesota in the fourth quarter.  The company also converted 34 locations to company owned-and-operated stores during the quarter, allowing the company to benefit from merchandise sales at these locations.

Items Not Allocated to Segments

Items not allocated to segments totaled $408 million of expenses in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to $55 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase for the quarter was primarily due to $183 million of transaction related costs associated with the Andeavor acquisition and the absence of a $57 million litigation gain recognized in fourth quarter 2017.  The balance of the increase largely reflects the increased corporate costs and expenses following the acquisition.

Strong Financial Position and Liquidity

On Dec. 31, 2018, the company had $1.61 billion in cash and cash equivalents (excluding MPLX and ANDX's cash and cash equivalents of $68 million and $10 million, respectively), $5.0 billion available under a revolving credit agreement, $1 billion available under a 364-day bank revolving credit facility and $750 million available under its trade receivables securitization facility.

In connection with the redemption of its Senior Notes due 2023 during the quarter, MPLX incurred approximately $60 million of debt extinguishment costs.

In addition, we have based many of these forward-looking statements on assumptions about future events that may prove to be inaccurate. While our management considers these assumptions to be reasonable, they are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, regulatory and other risks, contingencies and uncertainties, most of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. Accordingly, our actual results may differ materially from the future performance that we have expressed or forecast in our forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements except to the extent required by applicable law.

(a)

Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before net interest and other financial costs, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense as well as adjustments to exclude R&M turnaround costs and the purchase accounting related inventory effects reported in fourth-quarter 2018 R&M segment results. We believe this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors and analysts to analyze and compare our operating performance between periods by excluding items that do not reflect the core operating results of our business. We also believe that excluding turnaround costs from this metric is useful for comparability to other companies as certain of our competitors defer these costs and amortize them between turnarounds. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to net income attributable to MPC, income before income taxes, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

(c)

Refining & Marketing margin is defined as sales revenue less cost of refinery inputs and purchased products, excluding any LCM inventory market adjustment. We believe this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors and analysts to assess our ongoing financial performance because, when reconciled to its most comparable GAAP measure, it provides improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that we believe are not indicative of our core operating performance and that may obscure our underlying business results and trends. This measure should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, and our calculations thereof may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
