SUNCOKE ENERGY PARTNERS, L.P. ANNOUNCES SOLID FIRST QUARTER 2018 RESULTS

 

    Net income attributable to SXCP was $12.2 million and operating cash flow was $66.1 million in the first quarter 2018

 

    Adjusted EBITDA attributable to SXCP was $48.7 million for the quarter

 

    Reaffirm full-year 2018 Adjusted EBITDA attributable to SXCP guidance of $215 million to $225 million

Lisle, Ill. (April 26, 2018) - SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE: SXCP) today reported results for the first quarter 2018, which reflect solid operating results across SXCP’s coke and logistics businesses.

“We continue to execute against our objectives and our solid first quarter performance was a testament to that focus. We remain on pace to achieve our full-year Adjusted EBITDA guidance,” said Mike Rippey, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P.

Additionally, SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P. today announced its first quarter distribution of $0.40 per unit, which was a reduction from the $0.5940 per unit fourth quarter distribution.

Rippey continued, “Maintaining the distribution at this reduced level will allow us to further pay down debt and reach our stated leverage target of at or below 3.5x debt to EBITDA by the end of 2019. It will provide the desired cushion for our revolving credit facility’s leverage covenant, which steps-down to 4.0x in June 2020, while also increasing SXCP’s financial flexibility and driving long-term unitholder value.”

(1) See definition of Adjusted EBITDA and reconciliation elsewhere in this release.

Revenues in first quarter 2018 increased $19.2 million from the prior year period, primarily reflecting the pass-through of higher coal prices in our Domestic Coke segment.

Adjusted EBITDA in the quarter decreased $2.2 million, as a result the timing of planned outage and maintenance costs in our Domestic Coke segment.

Net income attributable to SXCP in the first quarter 2018 was $12.2 million, up $141.5 million versus the same prior year period. The improvement was driven by the absence of the $145.6 million of deferred tax expense attributable to SXCP recorded in the prior year period related to the change in the qualifying income regulations finalized by the internal revenue service. This favorable impact was partially offset by lower operating results discussed above as well as higher interest expense as a result of the 2017 debt refinancing activities.

FIRST QUARTER SEGMENT INFORMATION

    Revenues increased $16.8 million, primarily reflecting the pass-through of higher coal prices.

 

    Adjusted EBITDA decreased $2.2 million, driven by timing of planned outage and maintenance costs as well as higher coal moisture from adverse weather and logistics conditions resulting in lower production and energy revenue at our Granite City facility.

Logistics

Logistics consists of the handling and mixing services of coal and other aggregates operated by SXCP at our Convent Marine Terminal (“CMT”), Lake Terminal and Kanawha River Terminals (“KRT”).

    Revenues and Adjusted EBITDA increased $2.4 million and $0.4 million, respectively, driven primarily by record sales volumes at CMT as well as an increase in rate on CMT take-or-pay tons in the current year period. This benefit was mostly offset by increased costs at CMT and loss of business at KRT resulting from near historic water levels during the first quarter 2018.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and other expenses increased by $0.4 million to $4.2 million, driven primarily by unfavorable period-over-period mark-to-market adjustments in deferred compensation caused by changes in the Partnership’s unit price.

    Adjusted EBITDA attributable to SXCP is expected to be between $215 to $225 million

 

    Distributable Cash Flow expect to be between $122 to $132 million

DEFINITIONS

 

    Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), adjusted for any loss (gain) on extinguishment of debt and/or changes to our contingent consideration liability related to our acquisition of CMT. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered an alternative to net income or operating income under GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures in other businesses. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of the operating performance and liquidity of the Partnership’s net assets and its ability to incur and service debt, fund capital expenditures and make distributions. Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because it highlights trends in our business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP measures and because it eliminates items that have less bearing on our operating performance and liquidity. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and they should not be considered an alternative to net income, operating cash flow or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP.

 

    Adjusted EBITDA attributable to SXCP equals Adjusted EBITDA less Adjusted EBITDA attributable to noncontrolling interests.

 

    Distributable Cash Flow equals Adjusted EBITDA plus sponsor support and Logistics deferred revenue, less net cash paid for interest expense, ongoing capital expenditures, accruals for replacement capital expenditures, and cash distributions to noncontrolling interests; plus amounts received under the Omnibus Agreement and acquisition expenses deemed to be Expansion Capital under our Partnership Agreement. Distributable Cash Flow is a non-GAAP supplemental financial measure that management and external users of SXCP’s financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies use to assess:

 

    SXCP’s operating performance as compared to other publicly traded partnerships, without regard to historical cost basis;

 

4


    the ability of SXCP’s assets to generate sufficient cash flow to make distributions to SXCP’s unitholders;

 

    SXCP’s ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and

 

    the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects and the returns on investment of various investment opportunities.

We believe that Distributable Cash Flow provides useful information to investors in assessing SXCP’s financial condition and results of operations. Distributable Cash Flow should not be considered an alternative to net income, operating income, cash flows from operating activities, or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Distributable Cash Flow has important limitations as an analytical tool because it excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income and net cash provided by operating activities and used in investing activities. Additionally, because Distributable Cash Flow may be defined differently by other companies in the industry, our definition of Distributable Cash Flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing its utility.

 

    Distributable Cash Flow Coverage Ratio equals Distributable Cash Flow divided by estimated distributions to the limited and general partners.

 

    Operating Cash Flow Coverage Ratio equals net cash provided by operating activities divided by total estimated distributions to the limited and general partners. Operating cash flow is generally expected to be higher than Distributable Cash Flow as Distributable Cash Flow is further reduced by certain cash reserves including capital expenditures, an investing cash flow item. Additionally, Distributable Cash Flow represents only the Partnership’s share of available cash by excluding Adjusted EBITDA attributable to noncontrolling interest, while operating cash flow is reported on a consolidated basis.

 

    Ongoing capital expenditures (“capex”) are capital expenditures made to maintain the existing operating capacity of our assets and/or to extend their useful lives. Ongoing capex also includes new equipment that improves the efficiency, reliability or effectiveness of existing assets. Ongoing capex does not include normal repairs and maintenance, which are expensed as incurred, or significant capital expenditures. For purposes of calculating distributable cash flow, the portion of ongoing capex attributable to SXCP is used.

 

    Replacement capital expenditures (“capex”) represents an annual accrual necessary to fund SXCP’s share of the estimated costs to replace or rebuild our facilities at the end of their working lives. This accrual is estimated based on the average quarterly anticipated replacement capital that we expect to incur over the long term to replace our major capital assets at the end of their working lives. The replacement capex accrual estimate will be subject to review and prospective change by SXCP’s general partner at least annually and whenever an event occurs that causes a material adjustment of replacement capex, provided such change is approved by our conflicts committee.

(5) Operating cash flow coverage ratio is net cash provided by operating activities divided by total estimated distributions to the limited and general partners.

(6) Distribution cash coverage ratio is distributable cash flow divided by total estimated distributions to the limited and general partners.
