SUGAR LAND, Texas, November 6, 2019 – Trecora Resources ("Trecora" or the "Company") (NYSE: TREC), a leading provider of specialty hydrocarbons and waxes, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

“Operational reliability, disciplined cost control and solid execution drove the Company’s third quarter 2019 results, yielding net income from continuing operations of $1.6 million compared to net loss from continuing operations of $(0.7) million in third quarter 2018 and consolidated Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $6.9 million compared to $4.9 million in the same period last year,” said Pat Quarles, Trecora’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

“On top of the improved operating results, we recently announced a definitive agreement to sell our entire stake in Al Masane Al Kobra Mining Co., or “AMAK”, for $70 million in gross proceeds, with an expected close later in the fourth quarter and subject to government approvals and other closing conditions. Upon close, we will have delivered on our commitment to monetize this asset which will enable us to significantly reduce our debt. Further, what will remain after the completion of this transaction, is a Company with a singular focus on improving our operating businesses, a solid balance sheet and financial flexibility to create shareholder value,” Mr. Quarles added.

Sami Ahmad, Trecora's Chief Financial Officer stated, “Consolidated gross
margin improved to 15.3% in the third quarter 2019 from 9.3% in the third quarter 2018.
This margin improvement was a result of lower feedstock costs, lower operating expenses and improved plant operations, specifically in our Specialty Petrochemicals segment, which saw its gross margins improve from 10.3% in third quarter 2018 to 18.9% in third quarter 2019. Year-to-date consolidated gross margin was 15.3%, a sharp improvement from 11.8% in the same period last year. Strong operating cash flow in the quarter allowed for meaningful debt reduction of $9.0 million. We further reduced debt by an additional $5 million in October bringing our total outstanding debt to approximately $84 million.”

Mr. Quarles concluded, “Looking ahead, our focus continues to be the safe and reliable operation of our plants, the quality of our products, and disciplined management of costs and capital expenditures. We expect fourth quarter results to be impacted by typical seasonal demand patterns and from a weather event on October 29th at our Silsbee facility which resulted in damage to one of our feedstock storage tanks and a shutdown of the plant. We expect some loss of sales volumes and recovery costs.”

Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results 
Net income from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2019 was $1.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to a net loss from continuing operations of $(0.7) million, or $(0.03) per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2018. 

Total revenue in the third quarter of 2019 was $62.7 million compared to $73.4 million in the third quarter of 2018. This year-over-year decrease was primarily due to a 4.8% decrease in Specialty Petrochemicals sales volume and a 9.2% decline in average selling prices, which was primarily due to lower feedstock costs. Revenues from processing declined as compared to the third quarter of 2018, primarily due to the termination of a contract in the fourth quarter of 2018.   
 
Gross profit in the third quarter of 2019 was $9.6 million, or 15.3% of total revenues, compared to $6.8 million, or 9.3% of total revenues, in the third quarter of 2018.  Operating income in the third quarter of 2019 was $3.0 million compared to $0.3 million for the third quarter of 2018. The improved margins were primarily driven by lower feedstock costs, operation of the Advanced Reformer unit and lower labor costs as a result of the cost reduction program implemented in December 2018.

Specialty Petrochemicals  
Specialty Petrochemicals net income was $6.3 million in the third quarter of 2019, compared to net income of $2.5 million in the third quarter of 2018. Specialty Petrochemicals volume in the third quarter of 2019 was 20.5 million gallons, compared to 21.4 million gallons in the second quarter of 2019 and 21.6 million gallons in the third quarter of 2018. 

Prime product volume in the third quarter of 2019 was 16.4 million gallons, compared to 17.7 million gallons in the second quarter of 2019 and 17.0 million gallons in the third quarter of 2018. By-product sales volume was 4.1 million gallons in the third quarter of 2019.  Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for Specialty Petrochemicals in the third quarter of 2019 was $9.9 million compared to $6.2 million in the third quarter of 2018.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
This press release includes the use of both U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes certain financial measures, such as EBITDA from continuing operations and Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, which are non-GAAP measures, provide users of our financial statements with supplemental information that may be useful in evaluating our operating performance. The Company believes that such non-GAAP measures, when read in conjunction with our operating results presented under GAAP, can be used to better assess our performance from period to period and relative to performance of other companies in our industry, without regard to financing methods, historical cost basis or capital structure. These measures are not measures of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, analysis of our results under GAAP.

These non-GAAP measures have been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure in the tables below entitled Reconciliation of Selected GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures.

EBITDA from continuing operations and Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations: We define EBITDA from continuing operations as net income from continuing operations plus interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations as EBITDA from continuing operations plus stock-based compensation,
plus restructuring and severance expenses, plus losses on extinguishment of debt, and plus or minus gains or losses on acquisitions.

Forward-Looking Statements
Some of the statements and information contained in this press release may constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Statements regarding the Company's financial position, business strategy and plans and objectives of the Company's management for future operations and other statements that are not historical facts, are forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such statements. Such risks, uncertainties and factors include, but are not limited to: general economic conditions domestically and internationally; insufficient cash flows from operating activities; difficulties in obtaining financing on favorable conditions, or at all; outstanding debt and other financial and legal obligations; lawsuits; competition; industry cycles; feedstock, product and mineral prices; feedstock availability; technological developments; regulatory changes; environmental matters; foreign government instability; foreign legal and political concepts; foreign currency fluctuations; not completing, or not completely realizing the anticipated benefits from, the sale of our stake in AMAK; receipt and timing of necessary governmental approvals for the sale of our stake in AMAK; and other risks detailed in our latest Annual Report on Form 10-K, including but not limited to "Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors" and "Part II, Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" therein, and in our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). There may be other factors of which we are currently unaware or deem immaterial that may cause our actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. In addition, to the extent any inconsistency or conflict exists between the information included in this press release and the information included in our prior releases, reports and other filings with the SEC, the information contained in this press release updates and supersedes such information.
