Sunoco LP Announces Second Quarter 2022 Financial and Operating Results


DALLAS, Aug. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunoco LP (NYSE: SUN) ("SUN" or the "Partnership") today reported financial and operating results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2022.

Financial and Operational Highlights

For the three months ended June 30, 2022, net income was $121 million versus $166 million in the second quarter of 2021.  

Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the quarter was $214 million compared with $201 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA(1) reflects higher reported fuel margins and volumes, and the impact of recent acquisitions, partially offset by higher operating expenses(3).

Distributable Cash Flow, as adjusted(1), for the quarter was $159 million, compared to $145 million a year ago.

The Partnership sold approximately 2.0 billion gallons of fuel in the second quarter of 2022, up 3% vs. the second quarter of 2021.  Fuel margin for all gallons sold was 12.3 cents per gallon for the quarter compared to 11.3 cents per gallon a year ago.

Distribution and Coverage

On July 26, 2022, the Board of Directors of SUN's general partner declared a distribution for the second quarter of 2022 of $0.8255 per unit, or $3.3020 per unit on an annualized basis.  The distribution will be paid on August 19, 2022 to common unitholders of record on August 8, 2022.  SUN's current quarter cash coverage was 1.83 times and trailing twelve months coverage was 1.70 times. 

Liquidity and Leverage

At June 30, 2022, SUN had $869 million of borrowings against its revolving credit facility and other long-term debt of $2.7 billion.  The Partnership maintained liquidity of approximately $625 million at the end of the quarter under its $1.5 billion revolving credit facility.  SUN's leverage ratio of net debt to Adjusted EBITDA(1), calculated in accordance with its credit facility, was 4.17 times at the end of the second quarter.

Capital Spending

SUN's total capital expenditures for the second quarter were $29 million, which included $24 million for growth capital and $5 million for maintenance capital.  For the full-year 2022, SUN continues to expect growth capital expenditures of at least $150 million and maintenance capital expenditures of approximately $50 million.

SUN's segment results and other supplementary data are provided after the financial tables below.


(1)

Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow, as adjusted, are non-GAAP financial measures of performance that have limitations and should not be considered as a substitute for net income. Please refer to the discussion and tables under "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures" later in this news release for a discussion of our use of Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow, as adjusted, and a reconciliation to net income.


(2)

A reconciliation of non-GAAP forward looking information to corresponding GAAP measures cannot be provided without unreasonable efforts due to the inherent difficulty in quantifying certain amounts due to a variety of factors, including the unpredictability of commodity price movements and future charges or reversals outside the normal course of business which may be significant.


(3)

Operating expenses include general and administrative, other operating, and lease expenses.

Earnings Conference Call

Sunoco LP management will hold a conference call on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. Central time (10:00 a.m. Eastern time) to discuss results and recent developments.  To participate, dial 877-407-6184 (toll free) or 201-389-0877 approximately 10 minutes before the scheduled start time and ask for the Sunoco LP conference call.

___________________________

 



(1)

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and accretion expense, allocated non-cash compensation expense, unrealized gains and losses on commodity derivatives and inventory adjustments, and certain other operating expenses reflected in net income that we do not believe are indicative of ongoing core operations, such as gain or loss on disposal of assets and non-cash impairment charges. We define Distributable Cash Flow, as adjusted, as Adjusted EBITDA less cash interest expense, including the accrual of interest expense related to our long-term debt which is paid on a semi-annual basis, current income tax expense, maintenance capital expenditures and other non-cash adjustments.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow, as adjusted, are useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance because:

?

Adjusted EBITDA is used as a performance measure under our revolving credit facility;

securities analysts and other interested parties use such metrics as measures of financial performance, ability to make distributions to our unitholders and debt service capabilities;

our management uses them for internal planning purposes, including aspects of our consolidated operating budget, and capital expenditures; and

Distributable Cash Flow, as adjusted, provides useful information to investors as it is a widely accepted financial indicator used by investors to compare partnership performance, and as it provides investors an enhanced perspective of the operating performance of our assets and the cash our business is generating.

Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow, as adjusted, are not recognized terms under GAAP and do not purport to be alternatives to net income (loss) as measures of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow, as adjusted, have limitations as analytical tools, and one should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations include:

?

they do not reflect our total cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;

?

they do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital;

?

they do not reflect interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our revolving credit facility or senior notes;

?

although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash requirements for such replacements; and

?

as not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow, as adjusted, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA reflects amounts for the unconsolidated affiliate based on the same recognition and measurement methods used to record equity in earnings of unconsolidated affiliate. Adjusted EBITDA related to unconsolidated affiliate excludes the same items with respect to the unconsolidated affiliate as those excluded from the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, such as interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization and other non-cash items. Although these amounts are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA related to unconsolidated affiliate, such exclusion should not be understood to imply that we have control over the operations and resulting revenues and expenses of such affiliate. We do not control our unconsolidated affiliate; therefore, we do not control the earnings or cash flows of such affiliate. The use of Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA related to unconsolidated affiliate as an analytical tool should be limited accordingly. Inventory adjustments that are excluded from the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA represent changes in lower of cost or market reserves on the Partnership's inventory. These amounts are unrealized valuation adjustments applied to fuel volumes remaining in inventory at the end of the period.

(2)

Excludes the impact of inventory adjustments consistent with the definition of Adjusted EBITDA.

(3)

The distribution coverage ratio for a period is calculated as the non-GAAP measure of Distributable Cash Flow, as adjusted, divided by distributions expected to be paid to partners of Sunoco LP in respect of such a period.
