Trecora Resources Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Results

 

Completed Mechanical Construction of Distillation Unit

Record Annual Revenue at Trecora Chemical

Conference Call at 4:30 pm ET Today

 

SUGAR LAND, Texas, March 1, 2017 – Trecora Resources (NYSE: TREC) a leading provider of high purity specialty hydrocarbons and waxes, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016.

 

“During 2016 we focused our resources and invested in building a strong foundation for future growth,” said Simon Upfill-Brown, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our transformational capital projects continued to take shape as we positioned our business to increase capacity and profitability over the long-term to take advantage of the resurgence in the global chemical industry. While certain projects have experienced some slight delays, the completion of the distillation unit is a major milestone for Trecora Chemical (TC), which will benefit from increased demand for custom processing.

 

“Historically one of our softest quarters, we faced headwinds in the fourth quarter similar to what we experienced in previous quarters,” continued Mr. Upfill-Brown. “Challenging petrochemical market conditions, a continuation of a few specific customer volume shortfalls and somewhat lower margins for petrochemical products due to higher feedstock costs made year-over-year comparisons difficult. That said, we achieved near record quarterly revenue levels at TC driven by a 53% year-over-year increase in wax sales and 42% increase in custom processing revenue.

 

“Finally, we remain confident regarding the long-term prospects of our business reinforced by the expanded petrochemical production capacity on the Gulf Coast and anticipated stronger demand from polyethylene manufacturers,” said Mr. Upfill-Brown. “While we expect to achieve volume growth in the second half of 2017, we believe that 2018 will be the catalyst year for Trecora with the potential to deliver increased incremental EBITDA across all areas of the Company. Lastly, with the mine once again operational, we have the potential to monetize our investment in order to deliver significant value to our shareholders.”

 

Fourth Quarter Financial 2016 Results

Total revenue in the fourth quarter was $54.2 million compared with $60.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The decline in reported revenue was driven by a 25.4% decrease in petrochemical sales volume, partially offset by a 10.1% increase in the average sales price of petrochemical products, compared with the fourth quarter of 2015. The higher average sales price was partially offset by an 8.5% year-over-year increase in the average per-gallon cost of petrochemical feedstock which is the basis for the formula pricing for about 60% of the Company’s petrochemical product sales. Average feedstock cost per gallon increased 5.1% from the third quarter of 2016. Since formula pricing is based upon prior month feedstock averages, sales price increases tend to lag higher feedstock costs resulting in lower profit margins. Byproduct sales decreased in the fourth quarter from a year ago and third quarter 2016 levels.
