HOUSTON, Nov. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Adams Resources & Energy, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: AE) ("Adams" or the "Company"), a company engaged in marketing, transportation, logistics and repurposing of crude oil, refined products and dry bulk materials, today announced operational and financial results for the quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2022.  The Company also declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.24 per common share.

Q3 2022 Financial Highlights

  • Net earnings of $2.2 million, or $0.50 per diluted common share, on revenues of $852.9 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared to net earnings of $1.5 million, or $0.36 per diluted common share, on revenues of $568.2 million for the third quarter of 2021.   

  • Net cash generated by operating activities in the quarter was $40.0 million, versus $12.1 million for the third quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily driven by changes in inventory due to fluctuations in crude oil pricing and barrels held.

  • Adjusted net earnings of $4.7 million in the quarter, or $1.06 per diluted common share, compared to adjusted net earnings of $1.8 million, or $0.41 per diluted common share, for the third quarter of 2021. 

  • Adjusted cash flow of $12.6 million for the quarter versus $7.3 million for the third quarter of 2021. 

  • Cash and cash equivalents position was $86.5 million at September 30, 2022, versus $97.8 million at December 31, 2021, primarily due to an increase in crude oil inventory barrels, due in part to timing of customer deliveries, together with an increase in crude oil prices.

  • Enhanced financial liquidity of $123.3 million at September 30, 2022, including cash and cash equivalents and $36.8 million available under the Company's $60.0 million Credit Agreement.

Adjusted net earnings, adjusted earnings 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. 

Q3 2022 Operational Highlights

  • Adam's crude oil marketing subsidiary, GulfMark Energy, Inc. ("GulfMark"), marketed 91,878 barrels per day ("bpd") of crude oil, compared to 91,941 bpd during the third quarter of 2021 and 94,876 bpd during the second quarter of 2022. GulfMark held 304,554 barrels of crude oil inventory at September 30, 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 6.78 million miles versus 6.93 million miles during the third quarter of 2021 and 6.86 million miles during the second quarter of 2022. 

  • Adams' crude oil pipeline and storage segment's, which includes the Victoria Express Pipeline System ("VEX Pipeline System"), throughput increased to 9,963 bpd from 9,759 bpd for the third quarter of 2021, although representing a decline from 13,281 bpd for the second quarter of 2022, and terminalling volumes grew to 9,716 bpd from 9,159 bpd in the third quarter of 2021, down from 13,704 bpd for the second quarter of 2022. 

  • Adams' newly added logistics and repurposing segment, which includes the Firebird Bulk Carriers, Inc. ("Firebird") and Phoenix Oil, Inc. ("Phoenix") businesses acquired in August 2022, had an immediate positive impact on quarterly cash flow.

Additional Corporate Updates

  • During the quarter, the Company acquired the operations of Firebird and Phoenix and began reporting results as logistics and repurposing.  The adjusted aggregate purchase price was approximately $40 million.  The acquisition expands Adams' footprint, includes operating synergies, and is accretive to earnings and cash flow.

  • Subsequent to the quarter, the Company announced the repurchase of all outstanding Adams common shares owned by KSA Industries, Inc. and affiliates, representing approximately 44% of the total shares outstanding.  The $70 million purchase price was funded through cash on hand and a new term loan.  Following the transaction, the share count has decreased to 2,452,404 shares outstanding.

  • During the quarter, the Company announced that it will be breaking ground on the new pipeline connection between the Victoria Express Pipeline and the Max Midstream pipeline system and expects to complete construction and place the new connection into commercial service during the second quarter of 2023.

  • During the quarter, the Company announced that Service Transport had opened its 20th terminal located in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area.  This new facility will offer Service Transport's clients additional resources in the Northeastern United States, providing additional opportunities for revenue and profitability growth, while serving as a base of operations for recruiting in the immediate area.

Kevin J. Roycraft, Adams' Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are delighted to report continued operating and financial momentum through the third quarter.  Additionally, the recent purchase of both Firebird and Phoenix and the repurchase of the KSA shares significantly transforms and strengthens the Company.  Our three existing segments made important progress on their strategic initiatives while our new fourth segment, the new Logistics and Repurposing group, is also off to a very strong start.  The new Adams operating structure is designed to grow profitability through strategic, disciplined operational excellence and growth within each respective business segment, all for the long-term benefit of our shareholders.  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 third quarter of 2022, the Company spent capital of $2.0 million for tractors, trailers and other field equipment.  In addition, Adams paid dividends of $1.1 million, or $0.24 per common share.    

As part of Adams' on-going capital allocation strategy, the Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend for the third quarter of 2022 of $0.24 per common share, payable on December 16, 2022, to shareholders of record as of December 2, 2022.  Adams has consistently paid a dividend since 1994.    

Outlook

Mr. Roycraft concluded, "As we begin to think about 2023, we look forward to further executing our strategic plan to drive increased efficiencies across the entire organization and to maximize shareholder value. Towards that end, our recent corporate actions, including the Firebird/Phoenix acquisition, the repurchase of approximately 1.4 million KSA-related shares, and the new planned pipeline connection have set the Company up for a strong 2023.  Additionally, with our new and expanded credit agreement that we entered into in October, we continue to have a strong financial position, which currently includes available debt capacity of $60 million under the new credit agreement.  As in the past, we will continue to leverage our significant operational expertise and financial flexibility to execute on accretive acquisition opportunities designed to prudently grow our business.  Finally, we remain focused on providing significant long-term value for our shareholders, demonstrated by the regular return on capital through our consistent payment of quarterly cash dividends."

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 and adjusted earnings 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.  Adams' 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 Adams does.
