HF Sinclair Corporation reported first quarter net income attributable to HF Sinclair stockholders of $160.0 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, compared to $148.2 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.

The first quarter results reflect special items that collectively decreased net income by a total of $15.7 million. On a pre-tax basis, these items include acquisition integration costs of $25.0 million and decommissioning charges of $1.0 million related to the Cheyenne Refinery conversion to renewable diesel production, partially offset by a reduction in cost of goods sold by $8.6 million from lower of cost or market valuation. Excluding these items, net income for the current quarter was $175.6 million ($0.99 per diluted share) compared to net loss of $(85.3) million ($(0.53) per diluted share) for the first quarter of 2021, which excludes certain items that collectively increased net income by $233.5 million.

The HF Sinclair Board of Directors has declared the reinstatement of the regular quarterly dividend at an increased rate of $0.40 per share, compared to the first quarter 2021 dividend of $0.35 per share. The dividend is payable on June 2, 2022 to holders of record of common stock on May 23, 2022.

HF Sinclair’s CEO, Michael Jennings, commented, “The first quarter was transformational as we closed on the acquisition of the Sinclair companies, marking the new HF Sinclair, and made our first sales of renewable diesel from Cheyenne. Our combined, integrated platform delivered strong financial results led by the performance of our refining and lubricants segments. With the closing of the acquisitions of the Puget Sound refinery and Sinclair and our Renewables business approaching full operation, we are pleased to announce the first milestone in our capital return plan, an increased regular dividend of $0.40 per share. As we head into summer driving season, refining fundamentals are very favorable due to strong gasoline and diesel demand, coupled with low product inventories. We remain fully committed to our capital allocation strategy of returning $1 billion in cash to shareholders over the next twelve months.”

Refining segment income before interest and income taxes was $113.1 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $45.7 million in the first quarter of 2021. The segment reported EBITDA of $207.7 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $133.8 million for the first quarter of 2021. This increase was driven by higher sales volumes from the Puget Sound refinery and Sinclair acquisitions as well as the impact of stronger product demand on gross margins. Consolidated refinery gross margin was $12.69 per produced barrel, a 59% increase compared to $8.00 for the first quarter of 2021 and crude oil charge averaged 525,080 barrels per day (“BPD”) for the current quarter compared to 348,170 BPD for the first quarter of 2021.

Renewables segment loss before interest and income taxes was $(22.1) million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $(13.2) million in the first quarter of 2021. The segment reported EBITDA of $(16.3) million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $(12.8) million in the first quarter of 2021. Total sales volumes were 5 million gallons for the first quarter of 2022. The Cheyenne renewable diesel unit (“RDU”) was mechanically complete in the fourth quarter of 2021 and fully operational in the first quarter of 2022, the pre-treatment unit (“PTU”) at our Artesia, New Mexico facility was completed and fully operational in the first quarter of 2022 and the Artesia RDU is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2022. Also, effective with the Sinclair acquisition that closed March 14, 2022, the Renewables segment includes the Sinclair RDU.

Marketing segment income before interest and income taxes was $5.3 million and reported EBITDA was $5.8 million for the first quarter of 2022. Total branded fuel sales volumes were 85 million gallons for the first quarter of 2022.

Lubricants and Specialty Products segment income before interest and income taxes was $124.7 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $67.0 million in the first quarter of 2021. The segment reported EBITDA of $145.3 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $87.1 million in the first quarter of 2021. This increase was driven by strong finished product demand and pricing initiatives that outpaced rising feedstock and energy costs.

Holly Energy Partners, L.P. (“HEP”) reported EBITDA of $72.8 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $96.2 million in the first quarter of 2021.
