Executive Commentary “We fulfilled the commitments we pledged at the onset of 2020 despite the extraordinary challenges that unfolded during the year. Completing the sale of our non-core AMAK investment strengthened our balance sheet by allowing us to significantly reduce bank debt to target levels while also maintaining significant liquidity for growth opportunities. The successful launch and execution of our growth portfolio program across the company delivered $4.5 million of Adjusted EBITDA contribution in the year,” said Pat Quarles, Trecora's President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are currently managing the industry-wide impact of the recent freeze event in Texas and the related utility failures. While the full impact on first quarter remains uncertain, we believe we are well-positioned at the start of 2021 to benefit from the strength of our end markets that continue to recover, and from our growth portfolio that continues to progress and evolve. This has given us the confidence to initiate our $20 million share repurchase program and further our commitment to deliver value to our stockholders. This year, we intend to maintain our disciplined and proactive approach to cost control and capital allocation while we focus on investing in accretive growth projects and opportunities,” concluded Mr. Quarles. Sami Ahmad, Trecora's Chief Financial Officer stated, “While prime product sales for the year were severely impacted by the pandemic, declining nearly 10% from 2019, fourth quarter prime product demand increased from weakened levels in the second and third


 
2 quarters as well as versus fourth quarter 2019. The sales growth was driven by solid demand in the polyethylene and expandable polystyrene markets. “We ended the year with substantial liquidity and a strong balance sheet. Cash at year end was approximately $55.7 million and our revolver remained undrawn. We believe we are well positioned to navigate business uncertainties as well as to drive growth to further enhance stockholder value,” concluded Mr. Ahmad.

Total revenue for full year 2020 was $208.6 million, compared to $259.0 million for the full year 2019, a decrease of 19.4%. This decrease was primarily due to lower sales volumes for prime products and by-products as a result of COVID-19 and its general impact on the economy.

While product revenues and volumes increased in 2020 compared to 2019, customer demand for our specialty wax products was negatively impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Average wax sales price remained relatively flat in 2020 compared to 2019. In 2019, planned maintenance turnaround at our Pasadena facility, along with outages at multiple wax feed suppliers, constrained specialty wax production and thereby sales volumes. In 2020, feed supply increased. Adjusted EBITDA for Specialty Waxes in 2020 was $2.0 million, compared to $(0.2) million for the same period in 2019.

Our South Hampton facility resumed operations on February 23rd while our TC facility began resuming operations on March 4th. Within the first quarter, the company is expecting the loss of sales volumes as well as repair costs to ancillary equipment. However, we expect continued growth as the economy recovers from the impacts of the pandemic along with pent-up demand from the first quarter weather outages to result in improved demand as we head into the second quarter,” stated Mr. Quarles.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures This press release includes the use of non-GAAP financial measures of EBITDA from continuing operations and Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations and provide reconciliations from our most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to those measures. We believe these financial measures provide users of our financial statements with supplemental information that may be useful in evaluating our operating performance. We also believe 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. We define EBITDA from continuing operations as net income (loss) from continuing operations plus interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations as EBITDA from continuing operations plus share based compensation, plus restructuring and severance expenses, plus impairment losses and plus or minus gains or losses on disposal of assets. These non-GAAP measures have been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure for historical periods in the tables below entitled “Reconciliation of Selected GAAP Measures to Non- GAAP Measures. However, the Company is unable to reconcile its expectations regarding Adjusted EBITDA growth in 2021 to the most directly comparable GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts because the Company is currently unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the type and extent of certain items that would be expected to impact GAAP measures for these periods but would not impact the non-GAAP measures.
