Holly Energy Partners, L.P. Reports Second Quarter Results

08/08/2022
  • Reported net income attributable to HEP of $56.8 million or $0.45 per unit
  • Announced quarterly distribution of $0.35 per unit
  • Reported EBITDA of $79.8 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $104.2 million 

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Holly Energy Partners, L.P. ("HEP" or the "Partnership") (NYSE: HEP) today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2022. Net income attributable to HEP for the second quarter of 2022 was $56.8 million ($0.45 per basic and diluted limited partner unit), compared to $55.7 million ($0.53 per basic and diluted limited partner unit) for the second quarter of 2021.

Results for the second quarter of 2021 reflect a gain of $5.3 million related to the sale of a refined product pipeline. Excluding this gain, net income attributable to HEP for the second quarter of 2021 was $50.5 million ($0.48 per basic and diluted limited partner unit). The increase in net income attributable to HEP was mainly due to net income from Sinclair Transportation Company LLC ("Sinclair Transportation"), which was acquired on March 14, 2022, partially offset by higher interest expense and higher operating costs and expenses.

Distributable cash flow was $78.5 million for the second quarter of 2022, an increase of $11.8 million, or 17.7%, compared to the second quarter of 2021. The increase was mainly due to distributable cash flow related to Sinclair Transportation, partially offset by higher interest expense. HEP declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.35 per unit on July 21, 2022.

Commenting on our 2022 second quarter results, Michael Jennings, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “HEP delivered strong results during the quarter, driven by the Sinclair Transportation acquisition and record volumes on our SLC and Frontier crude pipelines in the Rockies region. We are very pleased with the performance of the Sinclair Transportation assets and expect they will continue to provide significant earnings while creating enhanced opportunities for our unitholders.”

“Looking forward, we remain focused on integrating Sinclair Transportation while maintaining safe and reliable operations across our asset base. Additionally, we remain committed to our disciplined capital allocation framework as we continue to reduce leverage using retained cash flow. We are on track to achieve our short-term leverage target of 3.5x by year-end. Consistent with our disciplined capital allocation framework, we expect to increase unitholder returns in 2023.”

Second Quarter 2022 Revenue Highlights

Revenues for the second quarter of 2022 were $135.8 million, an increase of $9.5 million compared to the second quarter of 2021. The increase was mainly due to revenues on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets and higher revenues on our UNEV pipeline, partially offset by lower revenues on our Cheyenne assets as a result of the conversion of HF Sinclair Corporation's (“HF Sinclair”) Cheyenne refinery to renewable diesel production and lower volumes on our product pipelines servicing HF Sinclair's Navajo refinery due to lower throughput at the refinery.

  • Revenues from our refined product pipelines were $26.1 million, a decrease of $2.6 million compared to the second quarter of 2021. Shipments averaged 178.3 thousand barrels per day ("mbpd") compared to 171.2 mbpd for the second quarter of 2021. The volume increase was mainly due to higher volumes on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation product pipelines, partially offset by lower volumes on pipelines servicing HF Sinclair's Navajo refinery. The revenue decrease was mainly due to lower volumes on pipelines servicing HF Sinclair's Navajo refinery and lower revenues from Delek US Holdings, Inc. due to the expiration of a capacity lease, partially offset by revenues on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation product pipelines. Revenues did not increase in proportion to volumes due to our recognition of a portion of the Sinclair Transportation refined product pipeline tariffs as interest income under sales-type lease accounting.
  • Revenues from our intermediate pipelines were $7.5 million, consistent with the second quarter of 2021. Shipments averaged 124.6 mbpd for the second quarter of 2022 compared to 143.8 mbpd for the second quarter of 2021. The decrease in volumes was mainly due to lower throughputs on our intermediate pipelines servicing HF Sinclair's Navajo refinery while revenue remained constant due to contractual minimum volume guarantees.
  • Revenues from our crude pipelines were $34.7 million, an increase of $2.6 million compared to the second quarter of 2021. Shipments averaged 615.3 mbpd compared to 396.7 mbpd for the second quarter of 2021. The increase in volumes was mainly attributable to our Cushing Connect pipeline, which went into service in September 2021, as well as volumes on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation crude pipelines. The increase in revenues was mainly due to our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation crude pipelines. Revenues did not increase in proportion to volumes due to our recognition of most of the Cushing Connect pipeline and Sinclair Transportation crude pipeline tariffs as interest income under sales-type lease accounting.
  • Revenues from terminal, tankage and loading rack fees were $44.6 million, an increase of $7.7 million compared to the second quarter of 2021. Refined products and crude oil terminalled in the facilities averaged 609.0 mbpd compared to 466.7 mbpd for the second quarter of 2021. The increase in volumes was mainly due to our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets. Revenues increased mainly due to revenues on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets and higher butane blending revenues. In addition, the second quarter of 2021 included the recognition of $3.4 million of the $10 million termination fee related to the termination of HF Sinclair's minimum volume commitment on our Cheyenne assets as a result of the conversion of the HF Sinclair Cheyenne refinery to renewable diesel production.
  • Revenues from refinery processing units were $22.9 million, an increase of $1.9 million compared to the second quarter of 2021, and throughputs averaged 72.3 mbpd compared to 76.6 mbpd for the second quarter of 2021. The decrease in volumes was mainly due to decreased throughput at our El Dorado refinery processing units. Revenues increased mainly due to higher natural gas cost recoveries in revenues. Revenues did not decrease in proportion to the decrease in volumes mainly due to contractual minimum volume guarantees.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2022 Revenue Highlights

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2022, were $256.0 million, an increase of $2.6 million compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021. The increase was mainly attributable to revenues on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets and increased revenues from our UNEV assets, partially offset by lower revenues on our Cheyenne assets as a result of the conversion of HF Sinclair's Cheyenne refinery to renewable diesel production and lower revenues on our product pipelines servicing HF Sinclair's Navajo refinery. The six months ended June 30, 2021 included the recognition of $9.9 million of the $10 million termination fee related to the termination of HF Sinclair's minimum volume commitment on our Cheyenne assets.

  • Revenues from our refined product pipelines were $52.3 million, a decrease of $5.0 million compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021. Shipments averaged 167.3 mbpd compared to 167.6 mbpd for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The volume and revenue decreases were mainly due to lower volumes on pipelines servicing HF Sinclair's Navajo refinery, partially offset by volumes on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets and higher volumes on our UNEV pipeline. We recognized a significant portion of the Sinclair Transportation refined product pipeline tariffs as interest income under sales-type lease accounting.
  • Revenues from our intermediate pipelines were $15.0 million, consistent with the six months ended June 30, 2021. Shipments averaged 121.2 mbpd compared to 129.6 mbpd for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The decrease in volumes was mainly due to lower throughputs on our intermediate pipelines servicing HF Sinclair's Navajo refinery while revenue remained relatively constant due to contractual minimum volume guarantees.
  • Revenues from our crude pipelines were $65.8 million, an increase of $3.2 million compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021. Shipments averaged 571.5 mbpd compared to 385.3 mbpd for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The increase in volumes was mainly attributable to our Cushing Connect pipeline, which went into service in September 2021, as well as volumes on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation crude pipelines. The increase in revenues was mainly due to our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation crude pipelines and higher volumes on our legacy crude pipelines in Wyoming and Utah. Revenues did not increase in proportion to volumes due to our recognition of most of the Cushing Connect pipeline and Sinclair Transportation crude pipeline tariffs as interest income under sales-type lease accounting.
  • Revenues from terminal, tankage and loading rack fees were $81.6 million, an increase of $6.5 million compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021. Refined products and crude oil terminalled in the facilities averaged 552.0 mbpd compared to 418.1 mbpd for the six months ended June 30, 2021. Volumes increased mainly due to volumes on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets and higher throughputs at HF Sinclair's Tulsa refinery. Revenues increased mainly due to revenues on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets and higher butane blending revenues. In addition, the six months ended June 30, 2021 included the recognition of $9.9 million of the $10 million termination fee related to the termination of HF Sinclair's minimum volume commitment on our Cheyenne assets as a result of the conversion of the HF Sinclair Cheyenne refinery to renewable diesel production.
  • Revenues from refinery processing units were $41.3 million, a decrease of $2.2 million compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021. Throughputs averaged 68.8 mbpd compared to 68.7 mbpd for the six months ended June 30, 2021 with increased throughputs at our El Dorado refinery processing units offset by lower throughputs at our Woods Cross refinery processing units, which were down for a scheduled turnaround in March 2022. Revenues decreased mainly due to the lower throughput at our Woods Cross refinery processing units, partially offset by higher natural gas cost recoveries in revenues.

Operating Costs and Expenses Highlights

Operating costs and expenses were $85.6 million and $154.7 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, representing increases of $15.6 million and $4.3 million from the three and six months ended June 30, 2021. The increases were mainly due to operating costs and expenses associated with our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets as well as higher employee costs, natural gas costs, maintenance costs and materials and supplies costs, partially offset by lower rentals and leases. In addition, the six months ended June 30, 2021 included a goodwill impairment charge of $11.0 million related to our Cheyenne reporting unit.

Interest Expense and Interest Income Highlights

Interest expense was $20.3 million and $34.0 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, representing increases of $6.4 million and $6.8 million from the three and six months ended June 30, 2021. The increases were mainly due to our April 2022 issuance of $400 million in aggregate principal amount of 6.375% senior unsecured notes maturing in April 2027 and higher average borrowings outstanding under our senior secured revolving credit facility related to the funding of the cash portion of the Sinclair Transportation acquisition. In addition, interest rates increased on our senior secured revolving credit facility.

Interest income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, totaled $24.3 million and $37.0 million, representing increases of $17.7 million and $23.8 million compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2021. The increases were mainly due to higher sales-type lease interest income from our Cushing Connect pipeline, which was placed into service at the end of the third quarter of 2021, and our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation pipelines and terminals.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) is calculated as net income attributable to Holly Energy Partners, L.P. ("Holly Energy Partners") plus (i) interest expense, net of interest income, (ii) state income tax expense and (iii) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as EBITDA plus (i) goodwill impairment, (ii) acquisition integration and regulatory costs and (iii) tariffs and fees not included in revenues due to impacts from lease accounting for certain tariffs and fees minus (iv) gain on sales-type leases, (v) gain on significant asset sales and (vi) pipeline lease payments not included in operating costs and expenses. Portions of our minimum guaranteed pipeline and terminal tariffs and fees for assets subject to sales-type lease accounting are recorded as interest income with the remaining amounts recorded as a reduction in net investment in leases. These tariffs and fees were previously recorded as revenues prior to the renewal of the throughput agreement, which triggered sales-type lease accounting. Similarly, certain pipeline lease payments were previously recorded as operating costs and expenses, but the underlying lease was reclassified from an operating lease to a financing lease, and these payments are now recorded as interest expense and reductions in the lease liability. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not calculations based upon generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). However, the amounts included in the EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA calculations are derived from amounts included in our consolidated financial statements. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to net income attributable to Holly Energy Partners or operating income, as indications of our operating performance or as alternatives to operating cash flow as a measure of liquidity. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented here because they are widely used financial indicators used by investors and analysts to measure performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also used by our management for internal analysis and as a basis for compliance with financial covenants.

Set forth below is our calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.

Distributable cash flow is not a calculation based upon GAAP. However, the amounts included in the calculation are derived from amounts presented in our consolidated financial statements, with the general exception of maintenance capital expenditures. Distributable cash flow should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income attributable to Holly Energy Partners or operating income, as an indication of our operating performance, or as an alternative to operating cash flow as a measure of liquidity. Distributable cash flow is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Distributable cash flow is presented here because it is a widely accepted financial indicator used by investors to compare partnership performance. It is also used by management for internal analysis and our performance units. We believe that this measure provides investors an enhanced perspective of the operating performance of our assets and the cash our business is generating.

Set forth below is our calculation of distributable cash flow.
