PBF Energy Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Results, Declares Dividend of $0.30 Per Share

February 13, 2014

PARSIPPANY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PBF Energy Inc. (NYSE:PBF) today reported fourth quarter 2013 Operating Income of $142.3 million versus Operating Income of $284.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income for the fourth quarter 2013 was $73.6 million, or $0.76 per share on a fully exchanged, fully diluted basis, as described below, compared to Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income of $165.7 million, or $1.70 per share, for the fourth quarter 2012. Net Income attributable to PBF Energy Inc. for the quarter was $31.2 million.

Embedded in our reported earnings is an approximately $113 million LIFO benefit related to the declining cost of our combined hydrocarbon inventory over the quarter, which puts the full-year 2013 LIFO charge at $24 million. Depending on rising or falling commodity prices, LIFO accounting can result in either a charge or benefit as the change in the current cost of PBF's combined crude and product inventory is reflected in the current period's earnings.

Throughput for the fourth quarter averaged approximately 458,800 barrels per day, which was at the low end of our guidance for the quarter. Throughput in the Mid-continent averaged approximately 151,700 barrels per day and throughput on the East Coast averaged approximately 307,100 barrels per day.

During the fourth quarter 2013, the company ran approximately 114,900 barrels per day of rail-delivered crudes through its East Coast system, of which 95,700 barrels per day was Bakken crude oil. The company did not use its full existing rail capacity of approximately 145,000 barrels per day as the planned turnaround of the Delaware City Refinery's coker complex, and other associated units, limited the amount of heavy crude oil that could be processed by the plant.

Tom Nimbley, PBF Energy's CEO, said, “PBF finished a challenging year with a strong quarter and is positioned well to start 2014 as crude differentials have improved from the third quarter of 2013.” Mr. Nimbley continued, “Looking ahead, our continued focus on operational excellence, environmental stewardship and safety will position the company to benefit from opportunities that the market may present in 2014.”

For the year-ended December 31, 2013, Operating Income was $319.9 million, compared to $920.4 million for the corresponding period in 2012. Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income for the year was $143.9 million, or $1.48 per share on a fully-exchanged, fully-diluted basis, as compared to $492.5 million, or $5.07 per share, for the corresponding period in 2012.

Matt Lucey, PBF Energy's CFO, said, “PBF generated approximately $150 million of operating cash flow in the quarter. We maintained our disciplined approach to managing our balance sheet and finished the year, much as we started, with 30% debt to capital ratio.”

PBF Energy Inc. Declares Dividend

The company announced today that it will pay a quarterly dividend of $0.30 per share of Class A common stock on March 14, 2014 to holders of record as of March 4, 2014.

Adjusted Pro Forma Results

Adjusted Pro Forma results assume the exchange of all PBF Energy Company LLC Series A Units and dilutive securities into shares of PBF Energy Inc. Class A common stock on a one-for-one basis, resulting in the elimination of the noncontrolling interest and a corresponding adjustment to the company's tax provision.

Non-GAAP Measures

This earnings release, and the discussion during the management conference call, may include references to non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) measures including Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income, Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income per fully exchanged, fully diluted share, gross refining margin, gross refining margin per barrel of throughput, EBITDA (Earnings before Interest, Income Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) and Adjusted EBITDA. PBF Energy Inc. believes that non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information about its operating performance and financial results. However, these measures have important limitations as analytical tools and should not be viewed in isolation or considered as alternatives for, or superior to, comparable GAAP financial measures. PBF Energy Inc.'s non-GAAP financial measures may also differ from similarly named measures used by other companies. See the accompanying tables and footnotes in this release for additional information on the non-GAAP measures used in this release and reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

(1) As reported by Platts.

(2) Gross refining margin per barrel of throughput is a non-GAAP measure. We define it as gross margin, plus refinery operating expenses and depreciation and amortization, divided by total crude and feedstocks throughput. Refer to the "Reconciliation of Amounts Reported Under U.S. GAAP - Gross Refining Margin/Gross Refining Margin per Barrel of Throughput" provided below for additional information, including our rationale for the use of this non-GAAP measure.

(3) Represents refinery operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization, divided by total crude oil and feedstocks throughput.

(4) We define heavy crude oil as crude oil with an American Petroleum Institute (API) gravity less than 24 degrees. We define medium crude oil as crude oil with an API gravity between 24 and 35 degrees. We define light crude oil as crude oil with an API gravity higher than 35 degrees.

Common stock equivalents exclude the effects of options to purchase 1,320,000 and 682,500 shares of PBF Energy's Class A common stock because they are anti-dilutive for the periods ended in 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Gross refining margin is a non-GAAP measure because it excludes refinery operating expenses and depreciation and can be relevant to investors because it is a better metric comparison to the industry refining margin benchmarks shown in the Market Indicators table above, as the industry benchmarks do not include a charge for refinery operating expenses and depreciation. Other companies in our industry may not calculate gross refining margin and gross refining margin per barrel in the same manner.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA (Earnings before Interest, Income Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) and Adjusted EBITDA, as presented in the tables above, are supplemental measures of performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We use these non-GAAP financial measures as a supplement to our GAAP results in order to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are measures of operating performance that are not defined by GAAP and should not be considered substitutes for net income as determined in accordance with GAAP.

In addition, because EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not calculated in the same manner by all companies, they are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have their limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.
