HOUSTON, Aug. 9, 2023 /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 ended June 30, 2023.  The Company also declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.24 per common share.

Q2 2023 Financial Summary

  • Total revenue of $624.8 million, versus $992.1 million for the second quarter of 2022. 
  • Net earnings of $0.8 million, or $0.32 per diluted common share, compared to a net loss of $2.0 million, or a loss of $0.79 per common share for the first quarter of 2023 and net earnings of $2.5 million, or $0.56 per diluted common share for the second quarter of 2022.   
  • Net cash used in operating activities of $27.3 million for the second quarter of 2023, a decrease of $2.7 million in net cash used in operating activities from the prior-year quarter. This decrease was primarily driven by the timing of payments and receipts from crude oil customers and changes in inventory due to fluctuations in crude oil pricing and barrels held. 
  • Adjusted cash flow of $7.1 million for the second quarter of 2023, compared to $4.7 million for the first quarter of 2023 and $9.0 million in the prior-year.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $9.0 million as of June 30, 2023, versus $20.5 million at December 31, 2022, primarily due to the timing of receipts and early payments from crude oil customers.
  • Liquidity of $48.6 million at June 30, 2023.
  • Paid dividends totaling $0.24 per share during the second quarter of 2023.  The Company has consistently paid a dividend since 1994.

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

Additional Operational Highlights

  • Adams' crude oil marketing subsidiary, GulfMark Energy, Inc. ("GulfMark"), marketed 92,152 barrels per day ("bpd") of crude oil during the second quarter of 2023, compared to 94,876 bpd during the second quarter of 2022 and 94,030 bpd during the first quarter of 2023.
  • The collective fleet of Service Transport Company ("Service Transport"), Adams' liquid chemicals, pressurized gases, asphalt and dry bulk transportation subsidiary, traveled 6.30 million miles during the second quarter of 2023, versus 6.86 million miles during the second quarter of 2022 and 6.55 million miles during the first quarter of 2023.
  • Adams' crude oil pipeline and storage segment, which includes the Victoria Express Pipeline System ("VEX Pipeline System"), throughput was 8,560 bpd for the second quarter of 2023, compared to 13,281 bpd for the second quarter of 2022 and 10,088 bpd for the first quarter of 2023, and terminalling volumes were 10,785 bpd for the second quarter of 2023, compared to 13,704 bpd in the second quarter of 2022, and 10,395 bpd for the first quarter of 2023. 
  • The logistics and repurposing segment, which includes the Firebird Bulk Carriers, Inc. ("Firebird") and Phoenix Oil, Inc. ("Phoenix") businesses acquired in August 2022, had a positive impact on quarterly cash flow.
  • Remained solidly positioned with 369,738 barrels of crude oil inventory at June 30, 2023, compared to 328,562 barrels at December 31, 2022.

"Our second quarter performance contains multiple bright spots in a challenging environment, including our crude oil marketing segment posting a sequential increase in operating income despite a number of headwinds," said Kevin J. Roycraft, Chief Executive Officer of Adams.  "Adjusted cash flows also improved sequentially as each segment contributed positively, and we returned to positive net earnings for the quarter." 

Capital Investments and Dividends

During the second quarter of 2023, the Company had capital expenditures of $4.0 million primarily for the previously announced purchase of land for the Dayton project, construction of the pipeline connection, three tractors, one trailer and other field equipment.  In addition, Adams paid dividends of $0.6 million, or $0.24 per common share.    

As part of Adams' on-going capital allocation strategy, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend for the second quarter of 2023 of $0.24 per common share, payable on September 22, 2023, to shareholders of record as of September 8, 2023. 

Outlook

"We believe the challenges facing our GulfMark and Service Transport segments have reached their lowest point, and we expect a more gradual recovery across our business over the remainder of the year and into 2024," Mr. Roycraft continued. 

"Our Company remains in a very strong financial position to withstand the continued macroeconomic challenges facing our industries and is poised to deliver meaningful performance when our key markets begin to improve. This plus our continued commitment to our dividend should deliver long-term value to our shareholders," Mr. Roycraft concluded.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and accompanying schedules include the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted cash flow, adjusted net earnings (losses) nd 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.  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.

The Company will host a conference call to discuss its second quarter results on Thursday, August 10, 2023 at 9:00 a.m. ET (8:00 a.m. CT).
