PARSIPPANY, N.J., Aug. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- PBF Logistics LP (NYSE: PBFX, the "Partnership") today announced second quarter 2019 net income attributable to the limited partners of $22.2 million, or $0.37 per common unit. During the quarter, the Partnership generated cash from operations of approximately $17.7 million, earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, and amortization ("EBITDA") of $42.5 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $48.3 million and distributable cash flow of $34.1 million. Included in reported results for the second quarter are $5.8 million, or $0.10 per common unit, of expenses related to the Torrance Valley Pipeline Company acquisition, non-cash unit-based compensation and environmental remediation costs associated with the East Coast Terminals.

"During the second quarter, PBF Logistics' assets operated well and we are currently seeing increased demand at several of our East Coast terminaling and storage facilities. We successfully delivered incremental growth through the completion of the TVPC acquisition and remain committed to the Partnership's continued development by executing our three-pronged growth strategy," said PBF Logistics GP LLC Executive Vice President Matt Lucey. "Additionally, with the anticipated early start to our processing and storage agreement with Maersk, we are seeing the initial moves by market participants in preparation for the IMO fuel specification implementation on January 1, 2020."

As of June 30, 2019, the Partnership had approximately $264.9 million of liquidity, including approximately $20.0 million in cash and cash equivalents, and access to approximately $244.9 million under its revolving credit facility.

Agreement for production and storage of 0.5% sulphur fuel on the U.S. East Coast
On February 14, 2019, PBF Logistics announced an agreement with A.P. Moller - Maersk ("Maersk") to source and PBFX to process crude oil at CPI Operations LLC, a PBF Logistics LP terminal facility ("East Coast Storage assets") in New Jersey, United States. The processing and storage arrangement is expected to commence on October 1, 2019, approximately two months earlier than originally anticipated.

The agreement enables Maersk Oil Trading to supply IMO 2020-compliant 0.5% marine fuel to its customers on the US East Coast. Annual production will be around 1.25 million metric tonnes (mt), the equivalent of approximately 10% of A.P. Moller - Maersk's annual fuel demand.

About the TVPC Transaction
On May 31, 2019, PBF Logistics completed the previously announced transaction to acquire the remaining fifty percent interest in Torrance Valley Pipeline Company LLC ("TVPC") from an affiliate of PBF Energy Inc. (PBF) for total consideration of approximately $200.0 million, an eight times acquisition multiple.

The acquisition of TVPC by the Partnership immediately doubles its position in one of its core assets and is immediately accretive to distributable cash flow.

PBF Logistics Announces Increased Quarterly Distribution
The board of directors of PBF Logistics GP LLC, the Partnership's general partner, declared a regular quarterly cash distribution of $0.5150 per common unit. The distribution is payable on August 30, 2019, to unitholders of record at the close of business on August 15, 2019.

This release is intended to be a qualified notice to nominees under Treasury Regulations Section 1.1446-4(b). All of the Partnership's distributions to foreign investors are attributable to income that is effectively connected with a United States trade or business. Accordingly, the Partnership's distributions to foreign investors are subject to federal income tax withholding at the highest effective tax rate.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
PBFX Reconciliation of Amounts under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") to annualized run-rate EBITDA (unaudited, in millions)

Reconciliation of fifty percent TVPC acquired interest, inclusive of the amendment to the M70 services agreement, estimated annualized run-rate Net Income to annualized run-rate EBITDA:

$

15.5


Add: Depreciation and amortization expense



5.5


Add: Interest expense, net and other financing costs



4.0


Annualized run-rate EBITDA


$

25.0


 

Due to the forward-looking nature of annualized run-rate EBITDA, information to reconcile annualized run-rate EBITDA to annualized run-rate cash flow from operating activities is not available as management is unable to project working capital changes for future periods at this time.

Due to the forward-looking nature of forecasted and long-term, consolidated run-rate EBITDA and distributable cash flow, information to reconcile long-term, consolidated run-rate EBITDA, distributable cash flow and coverage ratios to long-term, consolidated run-rate net income and cash flow from operating activities is not available as management is unable to project financing terms and working capital changes for future periods at this time.

The Partnership defines EBITDA as net income (loss) before net interest expense (including amortization of loan fees and debt premium and accretion on discounted liabilities), income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense. The Partnership defines EBITDA attributable to PBFX as net income (loss) attributable to PBFX before net interest expense (including amortization of loan fees and debt premium and accretion on discounted liabilities), income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense attributable to PBFX, which excludes results of acquisitions from affiliates of PBF Energy prior to the effective dates of such transactions. The Partnership defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA attributable to PBFX excluding acquisition and transaction costs, non-cash unit-based compensation expense and items that meet the conditions of unusual, infrequent and/or non-recurring charges. The Partnership defines distributable cash flow as EBITDA attributable to PBFX plus non-cash unit-based compensation expense, less cash interest, maintenance capital expenditures attributable to PBFX and income taxes. Distributable cash flow will not reflect changes in working capital balances. EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are not presentations made in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are non-GAAP supplemental financial measures that management and external users of the Partnership's condensed consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, may use to assess:

  • the Partnership's operating performance as compared to other publicly traded partnerships in the midstream energy industry, without regard to historical cost basis or, in the case of EBITDA, financing methods;
  • the ability of the Partnership's assets to generate sufficient cash flow to make distributions to the Partnership's unitholders;
  • the Partnership's ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and
  • the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects and the economic returns on various investment opportunities.

The Partnership believes that the presentation of EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX and Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors in assessing the Partnership's financial condition and results of operations and assists in evaluating the Partnership's ongoing operating performance for current and comparative periods. The Partnership believes that the presentation of distributable cash flow provides useful information to investors as it is a widely accepted financial indicator used by investors to compare partnership performance and provides investors with another perspective of the operating performance of the Partnership's assets and the cash the Partnership's business is generating. EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow should not be considered alternatives to net income, income from operations, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow have important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income and net cash provided by operating activities. Additionally, because EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow may be defined differently by other companies in the Partnership's industry, the Partnership's definitions of such measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility.

Conference Call Information
The Partnership will host a conference call and webcast regarding second quarter results and other business matters on Thursday, August 1, 2019, at 11:00 a.m. ET.

Results of Operations (Unaudited)

Factors Affecting Comparability

The following tables present our results of operations, related operational information and reconciliations of net income and net cash provided by operating activities to EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow (all as defined below) of PBFX for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018. The financial information presented contains the financial results of PBFX and the Development Assets (as defined below) prior to the Development Assets Acquisition (as defined below) on July 31, 2018.

On April 24, 2019, we entered into a Contribution Agreement with PBF Energy Company LLC ("PBF LLC"), pursuant to which PBF LLC contributed to us all of the issued and outstanding limited liability company interests of TVP Holding Company LLC ("TVP Holding"), which held the remaining 50% equity interest in Torrance Valley Pipeline Company LLC ("TVPC"), for total consideration of $200.0 million (the "TVPC Acquisition"). Subsequent to the closing of the TVPC Acquisition on May 31, 2019, we own 100% of the equity interest in TVPC, and we no longer record a noncontrolling interest related to our ownership of TVPC.

On February 28, 2019, we closed on an Equity Restructuring Agreement with PBF LLC and PBF Logistics GP, our general partner, pursuant to which PBFX's incentive distribution rights ("IDRs") held by PBF LLC were canceled and converted into 10,000,000 newly issued PBFX common units (the "IDR Restructuring"). Subsequent to the closing of the IDR Restructuring, no distributions were made to PBF LLC with respect to the IDRs, and the newly issued PBFX common units are entitled to normal distributions.

On October 1, 2018, we acquired Crown Point International LLC's wholly-owned subsidiary, CPI Operations LLC (the "East Coast Storage Assets Acquisition"), whose assets include a storage facility with approximately four million barrels of multi-use storage capacity, an Aframax-capable marine facility, a rail facility, a truck terminal, equipment, contracts and certain other idled assets located on the Delaware River near Paulsboro, New Jersey (collectively, the "East Coast Storage Assets"). Additionally, the East Coast Storage Assets Acquisition includes an earn-out provision related to an existing commercial agreement with a third party, based on the results of restarting certain of the acquired idled assets, which are expected to be restarted in the fourth quarter of 2019.

On July 31, 2018, we acquired from PBF LLC, a subsidiary of PBF Energy Inc., all of the issued and outstanding limited liability company interests of: Toledo Rail Logistics Company LLC, whose assets consist of a loading and unloading rail facility located at PBF Holding Company LLC's ("PBF Holding") Toledo Refinery (the "Toledo Rail Products Facility"); Chalmette Logistics Company LLC, whose assets consist of a truck loading rack facility (the "Chalmette Truck Rack") and a rail yard facility (the "Chalmette Rosin Yard"), both of which are located at PBF Holding's Chalmette Refinery; Paulsboro Terminaling Company LLC, whose assets consist of a lube oil terminal facility located at PBF Holding's Paulsboro Refinery (the "Paulsboro Lube Oil Terminal"); and DCR Storage and Loading Company LLC, whose assets consist of an ethanol storage facility located at PBF Holding's Delaware City Refinery (the "Delaware Ethanol Storage Facility" and collectively with the Toledo Rail Products Facility, the Chalmette Truck Rack, the Chalmette Rosin Yard, and the Paulsboro Lube Oil Terminal, the "Development Assets") (the "Development Assets Acquisition"). In connection with the Development Assets Acquisition, we entered into various commercial agreements with PBF Holding and assumed an existing commercial agreement with a third party.

On April 16, 2018, our wholly-owned subsidiary, PBF Logistics Products Terminals LLC ("PLPT"), completed the purchase of two refined product terminals located in Knoxville, Tennessee, which include product tanks, pipeline connections to the Colonial Pipeline Company and Plantation Pipe Line Company pipeline systems and truck loading facilities (the "Knoxville Terminals") from Cummins Terminals, Inc. (the "Knoxville Terminals Purchase").

The Development Assets Acquisition was a transfer between entities under common control. Accordingly, PBFX's financial information contained herein has been retrospectively adjusted to include the historical results of the Development Assets as if they were owned by the Partnership for all periods presented. The results of the Development Assets are included in the Transportation and Terminaling segment.

As a result of the factors above, the information included in the following tables is not necessarily comparable on a year-over-year basis.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We define EBITDA as net income (loss) before net interest expense (including amortization of loan fees and debt premium and accretion on discounted liabilities), income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense. We define EBITDA attributable to PBFX as net income (loss) attributable to PBFX before net interest expense (including amortization of loan fees and debt premium and accretion on discounted liabilities), income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense attributable to PBFX, which excludes the results of acquisitions from PBF LLC prior to the effective dates of such transactions. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA attributable to PBFX excluding acquisition and transaction costs, non-cash unit-based compensation expense and items that meet the conditions of unusual, infrequent and/or non-recurring charges. We define distributable cash flow as EBITDA attributable to PBFX plus non-cash unit-based compensation expense, less cash interest, maintenance capital expenditures attributable to PBFX and income taxes. Distributable cash flow will not reflect changes in working capital balances. We use distributable cash flow to calculate a measure we refer to as our coverage ratio. Our coverage ratio is calculated by dividing distributable cash flow by our total distribution declared. EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are not presentations made in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").

While EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are not presentations made in accordance with GAAP, they are supplemental financial measures that management and external users of our condensed consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, may use to assess:

  • our operating performance as compared to other publicly traded partnerships in the midstream energy industry, without regard to historical cost basis or, in the case of EBITDA, financing methods;
  • the ability of our assets to generate sufficient cash flow to make distributions to our unitholders;
  • our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and
  • the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects and the economic returns on various investment opportunities.

We believe that the presentation of EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX and Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations and assists in evaluating our ongoing operating performance for current and comparative periods. We believe that the presentation of distributable cash flow provides useful information to investors as it is a widely accepted financial indicator used by investors to compare partnership performance and it provides investors with another perspective of the operating performance of our assets and the cash our business is generating. However, EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow should not be considered alternatives to net income, income from operations, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow have important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income and net cash provided by operating activities. EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are reconciled to their most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the Earnings Release Tables included herein.

These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Our definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other partnerships, because they may be defined differently by other partnerships in our industry, thereby limiting their utility.

FOOTNOTES TO EARNINGS RELEASE TABLES

(Unaudited, in thousands, except per unit data)













(a)


See discussion of the factors affecting comparability noted on page 5. Our results of operations may not be comparable to
the historical results of operations for the reasons described below:                                                             .
 
Revenue - On May 1, 2019, we closed the TVPC Acquisition in which we acquired the remaining 50% equity interest in
TVPC. As such, we now own 100% of the equity interest in TVPC and no longer record a noncontrolling interest related to
our ownership of TVPC.                                           .
 
On October 1, 2018, we closed the East Coast Storage Assets Acquisition, which was accounted for as a business
combination. As such, there was no revenue associated with the East Coast Storage Assets prior to our acquisition.
 
On July 31, 2018, we closed the Development Assets Acquisition with PBF LLC. Commercial agreements with PBF
Holding for the Development Assets commenced subsequent to our acquisition, with the exception of an existing
commercial agreement associated with the Paulsboro Lube Oil Terminal.                                                       . 
 
On April 16, 2018, our wholly-owned subsidiary, PLPT, closed the Knoxville Terminals Purchase, which was accounted for
as a business combination. As such, there was no revenue associated with the Knoxville Terminals prior to our acquisition.
 
Operating and maintenance expenses - As a result of our acquisitions and the completion of certain organic growth projects,
our operating expenses are not comparative to prior periods due to expenses associated with these assets.













(b)


Calculated as the sum of the average throughput per day for each asset group for the period presented.













(c)


See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" on page 6 for definitions of EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted
EBITDA, distributable cash flow and coverage ratio.













(d)


Operating information reflects activity subsequent to our acquisitions, the execution of the commercial agreements with PBF Holding and the completion of certain organic growth projects.




(e)


On August 1, 2019, we announced a quarterly cash distribution of $0.5150 per limited partner unit based on the results of the
second quarter of 2019. The distribution is payable on August 30, 2019 to PBFX unitholders of record at the close of
business on August 15, 2019. The total distribution amounts include the expected distributions to be made related to second
quarter earnings.




(f)


Management also utilizes net debt as a metric in assessing our leverage. Net debt is a non-GAAP measure calculated by
subtracting cash and cash equivalents from total debt. We believe this measurement is 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. This non-
GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our debt levels as reported
under GAAP. Our definition of net debt may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other partnerships, because it
may be defined differently by other partnerships in our industry, thereby limiting its utility. Our net debt as of June 30, 2019
and December 31, 2018 was $749,219 and $653,416, respectively.













(g)


Prior to the TVPC Acquisition, our wholly-owned subsidiary, PBFX Operating Company LLC ("PBFX Op Co"), held a 50%
controlling interest in TVPC, with the other 50% equity interest in TVPC owned by TVP Holding, a subsidiary of PBF
Holding. PBFX Op Co was the sole managing member of TVPC. We, through our ownership of PBFX Op Co, consolidated
the financial results of TVPC and recorded a noncontrolling interest for the economic interest in TVPC held by TVP
Holding. Noncontrolling interest on the condensed consolidated statements of operations included the portion of net income
or loss attributable to the economic interest in TVPC held by TVP Holding. Noncontrolling interest on the condensed
consolidated balance sheets included the portion of net assets of TVPC attributable to TVP Holding.                                   .
 
Subsequent to the TVPC Acquisition, we own 100% of the equity interest in TVPC and no longer record a noncontrolling
interest related to TVPC.













(h)


Subsequent to the closing of the IDR Restructuring, the IDRs were canceled and exchanged for 10,000,000 newly issued
PBFX common units. No distributions were made to PBF LLC with respect to the IDRs for the three or six months ended
June 30, 2019, and the newly issued PBFX common units are entitled to normal distributions.




(i)


We base our calculation of net income per limited partner unit on the weighted-average number of limited partner units
outstanding during the period and the amount of available cash that has been or will be distributed to the limited partners and
IDR holders (prior to the IDR Restructuring) for that reporting period.
