HOUSTON, May 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Adams Resources & Energy, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: AE) ("Adams" or the "Company") today announced operational and financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.24 per common share. 

(PRNewsfoto/Adams Resources & Energy, Inc.)

  • Reported net earnings of $6.1 million, or $1.39 per diluted common share, on revenues of $774.2 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to net earnings of $2.8 million, or $0.66 per diluted common share, on revenues of $325.5 million for the first quarter of 2021.
  • Generated net cash provided by operating activities of $5.9 million for the first quarter of 2022, versus $23.0 million for the first quarter of 2021. The decrease was primarily driven by changes in working capital, partially offset by an increase in the market price of crude oil.
  • Reported adjusted net loss of $1.0 million, or a loss of $0.24 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2022, compared to an adjusted net loss of $2.6 million, or a loss of $0.61 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2021.
  • Produced adjusted cash flow for the first quarter of 2022 of $4.0 million versus $2.0 million for the first quarter of 2021.

Adjusted net earnings (losses), adjusted earnings (losses) per diluted common share and adjusted cash flow are non-generally accepted accounting principle ("non-GAAP") financial measures that are defined and reconciled in the financial tables later in this release. 

Additional Highlights for Q1 2022

  • Grew its cash and cash equivalents position to $99.3 million at March 31, 2022, which represented a 2% increase from $97.8 million at December 31, 2021.
  • Increased its financial flexibility with liquidity of $133.2 million at March 31, 2022, including cash and cash equivalents and $33.9 million available under the Company's $40.0 million Credit Agreement.
  • Adam's crude oil marketing subsidiary, GulfMark Energy, Inc. ("GulfMark"), marketed 90,385 barrels per day ("bpd") of crude oil during the first quarter of 2022, compared to 82,889 bpd during the first quarter of 2021 and 91,640 bpd during the fourth quarter of 2021. GulfMark held 404,636 barrels of crude oil inventory at March 31, 2022, compared to 259,489 barrels at December 31, 2021.
  • The collective fleet of Service Transport Company ("Service Transport"), Adams' liquid chemicals, pressurized gases, asphalt and dry bulk transportation subsidiary, traveled 6.80 million miles during the first quarter of 2022, versus 6.93 million miles during the first quarter of 2021 and 6.79 million miles during the fourth quarter of 2021.
  • Adams' crude oil pipeline and storage segment, which was established following the purchase of the Victoria Express Pipeline System ("VEX Pipeline System") in October 2020, further expanded its scope of operations during the first quarter of 2022. Pipeline throughput increased to 10,486 bpd for the first quarter of 2022 from 2,956 bpd for the first quarter of 2021 and 9,988 bpd for the fourth quarter of 2021, and terminalling volumes grew to 10,948 bpd for the first quarter of 2022 from 4,912 bpd in the first quarter of 2021 and 10,282 bpd for the fourth quarter of 2021.

Kevin J. Roycraft, Adams' Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We were pleased with our strong start to 2022 - both operationally and on the financial front.  All three of our segments made important progress on the execution of targeted initiatives designed to profitably sustain and grow their respective businesses for the long-term benefit of our shareholders, and I want to thank all of our team members for their steadfast dedication to providing our customers with a safe, efficient and best-in-class service offering." 

Capital Investments and Dividends

During the first quarter of 2022, the Company spent capital of $3.7 million for tractors and other field equipment.  In addition, Adams paid dividends of $1.1 million, or $0.24 per common share.    

Adams' Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend for the first quarter of 2022 of $0.24 per common share, payable on June 17, 2022, to shareholders of record as of June 3, 2022.  Adams' has consistently paid a dividend since 1994.    

Outlook

Mr. Roycraft concluded, "We look forward to further executing our plan to drive increased efficiencies across the organization.  Supporting our efforts remains our well-established and continued strong financial position, which included a liquidity position of more than $140 million at the end of this year's first quarter.  As in the past, we will continue to leverage our significant operational expertise and financial flexibility to execute on opportunities designed to prudently grow our business.  We also remain squarely focused on providing significant value for our shareholders, including providing a regular return on capital through the consistent payment of our quarterly cash dividend."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and accompanying schedules includes the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted cash flow, adjusted net earnings (losses) and adjusted earnings (losses) per common share.  The accompanying schedules provide definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations to their most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.  Company management believes these measures are useful indicators of the financial performance of our business and uses these measurements as aids in monitoring the Company's ongoing financial performance from quarter to quarter and year to year on a regular basis and for benchmarking against peer companies.  Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to GAAP measures such as net income, operating income, net cash flow provided by operating activities, earnings per share or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.  Our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because they may not calculate such measures in the same manner as we do.  The non-GAAP financial measures are defined and reconciled in the financial tables below.
