SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P. Reports Fourth Quarter 2013 Results

  • Net income attributable to SXCP was $17.3 million, or $0.53 per unit, in fourth quarter and $58.6 million, or $1.81 per unit, in full year 2013
  • Adjusted EBITDA rose $7.4 million to $41.0 million in fourth quarter and $27.8 million to $155.2 million in full year 2013. The portion attributable to SXCP was $27.6 million and $103.5 million for the quarter and full year, respectively
  • Distributable cash flow totaled $18.9 million in fourth quarter and $78.0 million on a proforma basis for full year 2013, resulting in coverage ratios of 1.24x and 1.28x, respectively
  • Fourth quarter 2013 cash distribution per unit of $0.4750 - payable on February 28, 2014 - represents a 10 percent increase over third quarter 2013 per unit rate of $0.4325 and a 15 percent increase over the minimum quarterly distribution of $0.4125

SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE: SXCP) today reported fourth quarter 2013 net income attributable to SXCP of $17.3 million, or $0.53 per unit. Full year 2013 net income attributable to SXCP was $58.6 million, or $1.81 per unit. Prior year net income of $15.3 million for the quarter and $56.8 million for the year is not comparable as these results are before the initial public offering of a 65 percent interest in our sponsor's, SunCoke Energy, Inc. (NYSE: SXC), Haverhill and Middletown cokemaking facilities.

“SXCP's first year as a publicly traded master limited partnership was outstanding," said Fritz Henderson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SXCP. "Full year Adjusted EBITDA was over $155 million and proforma distributable cash flow reached $78 million on the strength of our cokemaking operations and coal logistics acquisitions. As a result, we were able to raise cash distributions per unit three times in 2013 for a total 15 percent increase over our minimum quarterly distribution.”

Henderson continued, "In 2014, we look forward to working with our sponsor to evaluate the potential dropdown of additional cokemaking assets. In addition, we will continue to sustain high-level performance in our existing assets and pursue opportunities to expand our presence in the steel value chain. As we make progress on these priorities, we expect they will help drive potential future increases in cash distributions."

Prior year results not comparable as they include 100 percent of the operating results of SXC's Haverhill and Middletown facilities, whereas subsequent to the closing of the initial public offering of SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P. on January 24, 2013, the current year includes 65 percent of their results.
 

Revenues declined 7.3 percent in fourth quarter 2013 to $172.7 million and 7.2 percent to $687.3 million for full year 2013 versus the same respective prior year periods. The decline in both periods was primarily due to the pass-through of lower coal prices in our cokemaking business, partly offset by revenues generated by our new Coal Logistics segment, which was formed upon our acquisitions of Lakeshore Coal Handling (Lake Terminal) Corporation and Kanawha River Terminals, LLC (KRT). Full year 2013 revenues also benefited from higher coke sales volumes.

Operating income rose 27 percent to $31.5 million in fourth quarter 2013 and 34 percent to $122.8 million for full year 2013 versus the same respective prior year periods. Adjusted EBITDA increased 22 percent to $41.0 million in fourth quarter 2013 and 22 percent to $155.2 million for full year 2013. The increase in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA for both periods reflects higher operating cost recovery at our Middletown cokemaking facility as a result of the transition to a budgeted operating cost per ton from the fixed operating cost per ton that was in effect only in the first year of operation at this facility and the benefit of our new Coal Logistics segment.

Fourth quarter 2013 and full year 2013 net income attributable to SXCP of $17.3 million and $58.6 million is not comparable to prior year, which includes 100 percent of the operating results of SXC's Haverhill and Middletown facilities.

SUNCOKE ENERGY PARTNERS PREDECESSOR

Financial results for periods prior to the January 24, 2013 closing of SXCP's initial public offering represent the financial results of SXCP's predecessor, which was comprised of 100 percent of the cokemaking operations and related assets of SXC's Haverhill and Middletown facilities. These financial results include all revenues, costs, assets and liabilities attributed to the predecessor after the elimination of all significant intercompany accounts and transactions. Upon the closing of the IPO, SXC contributed a 65 percent interest in the predecessor to SXCP. Our financial reporting reflects SXC's 35 percent ownership interest in these facilities as a noncontrolling interest.

NOTICE

This statement is intended to serve as qualified notice to nominees as provided for under Treasury Regulation Section 1.1446-4(b)(4) and (d) given by a publicly traded partnership for the nominee to be treated as a withholding agent. Please note that SXCP's quarterly cash distributions are treated as partnership distributions for federal income tax purposes and that 100 percent of these distributions to foreign investors are attributable to income that is effectively connected with a United States trade or business. Accordingly, all of SXCP's distributions to a nominee on behalf of foreign investors are subject to federal income tax withholding at the highest marginal tax rate for individuals or corporations, as applicable. Nominees, and not SXCP, are treated as the withholding agents responsible for withholding on the distributions received by them on behalf of foreign investors.

DEFINITIONS

  • Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization (“EBITDA”) adjusted for sales discounts and the interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization attributable to our equity method investment. EBITDA reflects sales discounts included as a reduction in sales and other operating revenue. The sales discounts represent the sharing with customers of a portion of nonconventional fuel tax credits, which reduce our income tax expense. However, we believe our Adjusted EBITDA would be inappropriately penalized if these discounts were treated as a reduction of EBITDA since they represent sharing of a tax benefit that is not included in EBITDA. Accordingly, in computing Adjusted EBITDA, we have added back these sales discounts. Our Adjusted EBITDA also includes EBITDA attributable to our equity method investment. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent and should not be considered alternatives 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 of the Company's net assets and 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. Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of operating performance that is not defined by GAAP, does not represent and should not be considered a substitute for net income as determined in accordance with GAAP. Calculations of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to those reported by other companies.
  • EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization.
  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to SXC/SXCP equals Adjusted EBITDA less Adjusted EBITDA attributable to noncontrolling interests.
  • Adjusted EBITDA/Ton represents Adjusted EBITDA divided by tons sold.
  • Distributable Cash Flow equals Adjusted EBITDA less net cash paid for interest expense, on-going 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 the Partnership's financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies use to assess:

    • the Partnership's operating performance as compared to other publicly traded partnerships, without regard to historical cost basis;
    • the ability of the Partnership's assets to generate sufficient cash flow to make distributions to the Partnership's unitholders;
    • the Partnership'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.

The Partnership believes that Distributable Cash Flow provides useful information to investors in assessing the Partnership'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, the Partnership's definition of Distributable Cash Flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility.

  • 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.
