Parkland Reports 2024 First Quarter Results

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA1 of $327 million

Safely restarted the Burnaby Refinery and returned to normal operations

Progressing $500 million of non-core asset dispositions

CALGARY, AB, May 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX: PKI), today announced its financial and operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2024.

“The team continues to deliver on our strategy and optimize our portfolio,” said Bob Espey, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We have identified more than $400 million of non-core assets for disposition, many of which have been sold or are in the advanced stages of negotiation. This represents more than 80 percent of our $500 million target by the end of 2025.”

“I have full confidence in our team’s ability to execute our operational plan that leverages our customer advantage and unique supply benefits, despite headwinds in some of the markets where we operate,” added Espey. “We expect to deliver our 2024 Adjusted EBITDA Guidance range of $1.95 to $2.05 billion and see a clear pathway to achieving a Leverage Ratio at the low end of our 2 to 3 times target range by the end of 2025.”

Q1 2024 Highlights

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $327 million, a decrease of 17 percent as compared to the first quarter of 2023, driven by an unplanned shutdown of the Burnaby Refinery, which began as a result of extreme cold weather and was extended by technical issues during the subsequent start-up. The Burnaby Refinery safely returned to normal operations on March 29, 2024.
  • Net loss of $5 million ($0.03 per share, basic), a decrease of $82 million as compared to the first quarter of 2023, and Adjusted earnings2 of $43 million ($0.25 per share, basic), a decrease of $71 million from the first quarter of 2023.
  • TTM Available cash flow2 of $770 million, an increase of 23 percent from 2023, and TTM Cash generated from (used in) operating activities3 of $1,683 million, consistent with 2023.
  • TTM Available cash flow per share2 of $4.38, an increase of 16 percent from 2023, and TTM Cash generated from (used in) operating activities per share3 of $9.56, a decrease of 7 percent from 2023.
  • Leverage Ratio4 of 3.1 times (2.8 times at Q4 2023), reflecting the impact of the unplanned shutdown of the Burnaby Refinery.
  • Purchased for cancellation approximately 1.8 million common shares for $82 million under our normal course issuer bid (”NCIB”) program in Q1 2024.
  • Parkland’s quarterly dividend increased from $0.34 to $0.35 per common share, or $1.40 per common share annualized, representing a 3 percent increase from the prior year. Dividends are expected to be declared and paid on a quarterly basis.

Q1 2024 Segment Highlights

  • Canada delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $191 million, up 14 percent from Q1 2023 ($167 million). This increase was primarily driven by stronger fuel unit margins, partially offset by lower commercial volumes due to unseasonably warm weather. Company same-store volume growth (”Company SSVG”5) was 5.9 percent, demonstrating the improved productivity of our company-owned network.
  • International delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $149 million, down 19 percent from Q1 2023 ($183 million). The decrease was primarily driven by lower fuel unit margins and wholesale volumes as compared to Q1 2023, partially offset by successful cost controls.
  • USA delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $33 million, up 57 percent from Q1 2023 ($21 million). Performance reflects ongoing integration efforts, including C-store improvements and On the Run rebrands. Lower fuel unit margins and volumes reflect broader industry trends.
  • Refining reported an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $32 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $38 million in Q1 2023. Composite utilization5 at the Burnaby Refinery was 20 percent, reflecting the unplanned shutdown, compared to 34 percent in Q1 2023, reflecting a scheduled turnaround. During the quarter, we accelerated maintenance and refining optimization work previously scheduled for the third quarter of 2024. As a result, we expect to enhance the Burnaby Refinery’s utilization and profitability for the remainder of the year.
  • Parkland’s total recordable injury frequency rate5 on a trailing-twelve-months basis was 1.07, compared to 0.97 at March 31, 2023.

The forward-looking statements contained in this news release are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.

Specified Financial Measures

This news release contains total of segments measures, non-GAAP financial measures and non-GAAP financial ratios, supplementary financial measures and capital management measures (collectively, “specified financial measures”). Parkland’s management uses certain specified financial measures to analyze the operating and financial performance, leverage, and liquidity of the business. These specified financial measures do not have any standardized meaning under International Financial Reporting Standards (”IFRS”) and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The specified financial measures should not be considered in isolation or used in substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. See Section 16 of the Q1 2024 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding specified financial measures used by Parkland.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Ratios

Adjusted earnings (loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share is a non-GAAP financial ratio, each representing the underlying core operating performance of business activities of Parkland at a consolidated level. The most directly comparable financial measure to Adjusted earnings (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share is Net earnings (loss).

Adjusted earnings (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share represent how well Parkland’s operational business is performing, while considering depreciation and amortization, interest on leases and long-term debt, accretion and other finance costs, and income taxes. The Company uses these measures because it believes that Adjusted earnings (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share are useful for management and investors in assessing the Company’s overall performance, as they exclude certain significant items that are not reflective of the Company’s underlying business operations.

See Section 16 of the Q1 2024 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for the detailed definition and composition of Adjusted earnings (loss).

Please see below for the reconciliation of Adjusted earnings (loss) to net earnings (loss) and calculation of Adjusted earnings (loss) per share.

Other adjusting items for the three months ended March 31, 2024 include: (i) the share of depreciation, income taxes and other adjustments for investments in joint ventures and associates of $4 million (2023 – $3 million); (ii) other income of $2 million (2023 – $3 million); (iii) realized risk management loss related to underlying physical sales activity in another period of $3 million (2023 – $1 million loss); (iv) adjustment to foreign exchange gains and losses related to cash pooling arrangements of $2 million (2023 – $1 million); (v) adjustment to realized risk management gains of $1 million related to interest rate swaps as these gains do not relate to commodity sale and purchase transactions (2023 – nil); and (vi) the effect of market-based performance conditions for equity-settled share-based award settlements of nil (2023 – $13 million).

2

The tax normalization adjustment was applied to net earnings (loss) adjusting items that were considered temporary differences, such as acquisition, integration and other costs, unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses, unrealized gains and losses on risk management and other, gains and losses on asset disposals, changes in fair value of redemption options, changes in estimates of environmental provisions, loss on inventory write-downs for which there are offsetting associated risk management derivatives with unrealized gains, impairments of non-current assets and debt modifications. The tax impact was estimated using the effective tax rates applicable to jurisdictions where the related items occur.

3

Weighted average number of common shares is calculated in accordance with Parkland’s accounting policy contained in Note 2 of the Annual Consolidated Financial Statements.

Available cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and Available cash flow per share is a non-GAAP financial ratio. The most directly comparable financial measure for Available cash flow and Available cash flow per share is cash generated from (used in) operating activities. Parkland uses these measures to monitor its ability to generate cash flow for capital allocation, including distributions to shareholders, investment in the growth of the business, and deleveraging. Available cash flow is calculated as cash generated from (used in) operating activities adjusted for items such as (i) net change in (a) non-cash working capital and (b) other assets and other liabilities, (ii) maintenance capital expenditures, (iii) dividends received from investments in associates and joint ventures, (iv) interest on leases and long-term debt, and (v) payments on principal amounts on leases. Available cash flow per share is calculated as Available cash flow divided by the weighted average number of outstanding common shares. See following table for a calculation of historical Available cash flow and Available cash flow per share and a reconciliation to cash generated from (used in) operating activities.

Weighted average number of common shares is calculated in accordance with Parkland’s accounting policy contained in Note 2 of the Annual Consolidated Financial Statements.

The non-GAAP financial measures and ratios should not be considered in isolation or used in substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Except as otherwise indicated, these non-GAAP measures and ratios are calculated and disclosed on a consistent basis from period to period. See Section 16 of the Q1 2024 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding Parkland’s non-GAAP financial measures and ratios.

Capital Management Measures

Parkland’s primary capital management measure is the Leverage Ratio, which is used internally by key management personnel to monitor Parkland’s overall financial strength, capital structure flexibility, and ability to service debt and meet current and future commitments. In order to manage its financing requirements, Parkland may adjust capital spending or dividends paid to shareholders, or issue new shares or new debt. The Leverage Ratio is calculated as a ratio of Leverage Debt to Leverage EBITDA and does not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS Accounting Standards. It is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The detailed calculation of Leverage Ratio is as follows:

(3)

Includes adjustments to normalize Adjusted EBITDA for non-recurring events including the completion of turnarounds, the unplanned shutdown resulting from an extreme cold weather event, a third-party power outage and the EBITDA attributable to EV charging operations financed through non-recourse project financing.

Total of Segments Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is a total of segments measure used by the chief operating decision maker to make decisions about resource allocation to the segment and to assess its performance. In accordance with IFRS, adjustments and eliminations made in preparing an entity’s financial statements and allocations of revenue, expenses, and gains or losses shall be included in determining reported segment profit or loss only if they are included in the measure of the segment’s profit or loss that is used by the chief operating decision maker. As such, Parkland’s Adjusted EBITDA is unlikely to be comparable to similarly named measures presented by other issuers, who may calculate these measures differently. Parkland views Adjusted EBITDA as the key measure for the underlying core operating performance of business segment activities at an operational level. Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to set targets for Parkland (including annual guidance and variable compensation targets) and is used to determine Parkland’s ability to service debt, finance capital expenditures and provide for dividend payments to shareholders. See Section 16 of the Q1 2024 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding total of segments measures used by Parkland. Refer to the table below for the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net earnings (loss) for the  three months ended March 31, 2024 and March 31, 2023.

Other adjusting items for the three months ended March 31, 2024 include: (i) the share of depreciation, income taxes and other adjustments for investments in joint ventures and associates of $4 million (2023 – $3 million); (ii) other income of $2 million (2023 – $3 million); (iii) realized risk management loss related to underlying physical sales activity in another period of $3 million (2023 – $1 million loss); (iv) adjustment to foreign exchange gains and losses related to cash pooling arrangements of $2 million (2023 – $1 million); (v) adjustment to realized risk management gains of $1 million related to interest rate swaps as these gains do not relate to commodity sale and purchase transactions (2023 – nil); and (vi) the effect of market-based performance conditions for equity-settled share-based award settlements of nil (2023 – $13 million).

Parkland uses Adjusted gross margin as a measure of segment profit (loss) to analyze the performance of sale and purchase transactions and performance on margin. The most directly comparable financial measure is sales and operating revenue. See Section 16 of the Q1 2024 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for the detailed definition of Adjusted gross margin.

Parkland’s Burnaby Refinery safely returned to normal operations

CALGARY, AB, April 1, 2024 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”) (TSX: PKI) announced today that the Burnaby Refinery (”the refinery”) safely returned to normal operations on March 29, 2024, following an unplanned shutdown originating from extreme cold weather on January 12, 2024.

“I would like to thank the refinery team for their hard work and dedication to safely restore operations,” said Bob Espey, President and Chief Executive Officer. “During this shutdown period, we accelerated maintenance and refining optimization work previously scheduled for the third quarter of 2024. In addition, we have taken proactive steps to improve organization-wide marketing profitability and enhance the refinery’s utilization and profitability for the remainder of the year. I have confidence in our revised operational plan and the proven execution capabilities of our teams. Our 2024 Adjusted EBITDA Guidance range remains unchanged at $1.95 billion to $2.05 billion.”

As a result of this shutdown, we anticipate the refinery will deliver composite utilization of approximately 20 percent and an Adjusted EBITDA loss of between $60 and $65 million for the first quarter 2024. Parkland expects to deliver between $300 to $320 million of total Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2024.

CALGARY, AB, Nov. 14, 2023 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX:PKI), will host its 2023 Investor Day today where its executive team will outline the Company’s continued growth plans, targets, and capital allocation strategy for the next five years.

Parkland Logo

“Since our 2021 Investor Day, we have continued to build and invest in our growth platform,” said Bob Espey, President and Chief Executive Officer. “This year, we saw the strength of our business model as we delivered strong organic growth and synergy capture, enabling us to increase Adjusted EBITDA Guidance, exceed our deleveraging goals, and accelerate our $2 billion ambition to 2024, a year ahead of schedule.”

“The success of Parkland’s strategy is due to our industry leading team, which is focused on safe and disciplined execution,” added Espey. “Our business is growing, and we are committed to meeting the evolving needs of our customers. We are reinforcing our financial foundation, delivering substantial cash flow and, through disciplined capital allocation, we will optimize returns for our shareholders.”

During today’s Investor Day, Parkland’s executive team will discuss:

Customer Advantage

Parkland’s customer centric strategy demonstrates our commitment to becoming the number one choice for energy and convenience, for our Retail and Commercial customers, in the markets we serve.

Our JOURNIE™ loyalty platform is a foundation of this strategy as it expands its suite of partners and geographic reach. It will continue to unify our brands, delivering personalized customer offers, while incentivizing and rewarding customer loyalty across our retail fuel and EV charging locations, ON the RUN convenience stores, and food brands.

In addition to its retail footprint, Parkland serves a diverse range of Commercial customers in each of its markets. Our extensive proprietary infrastructure and dedicated team safely and reliably deliver products to our customers that meet their energy needs of today, and their evolving low carbon needs of tomorrow.

Supply Advantage

Parkland’s proven supply expertise underpins its strategy. By delivering approximately 28 billion litres of fuel annually, the Company’s scale, unique logistics assets, and capabilities provide purchasing power and optionality that enable us to achieve the lowest cost to serve. Our supply optimization allows us to create tremendous competitive advantage and unlock significant value in the markets we operate.

Disciplined Capital Allocation

We anticipate $6 billion in cumulative Available cash flow from 2024 to 2028. We are positioned to deliver sustainable growth, enhance shareholder returns and strengthen our balance sheet.

The Company’s capital allocation program will direct approximately $1.5 billion (25 percent) to dividends and share buybacks, and $1.5 billion (25 percent) to organic growth initiatives that reinforce our market position.

With the remaining $3 billion (50 percent) of anticipated capital, we will prioritize reducing our Leverage Ratio to the low end of our two to three times target range by the end of 2025. Beyond that and looking forward through 2028, we expect capital will be strategically allocated toward opportunities that generate the greatest shareholder returns, including additional share buybacks and inorganic growth opportunities. This framework underscores Parkland’s dedication to financial discipline and strategic agility, with the aim of delivering long-term value for our shareholders.

Parkland remains focused on executing its strategy, capturing synergies, lowering costs, and delivering organic growth. During Investor Day, Parkland will outline the Company’s 2024 Guidance and 2028 Ambitions.

2024 Guidance2

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $2 billion +/- $50 million
  • Capital expenditures1 of between $475 million to $525 million.
  • Available cash flow per share of $5.00.
  • ROIC1 of more than 11 percent.

2028 Ambitions

  • Available cash flow of $8.50 per share, doubling from $4.25 per share in 20233.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $2.5 billion, driven by organic growth, synergy capture and cost efficiencies. We see potential to generate up to $3 billion of Adjusted EBITDA in 2028, reflecting disciplined inorganic growth opportunities as outlined in our capital allocation framework.

These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this news release. Parkland does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements except as required by securities law. Actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of numerous risks and uncertainties including, but not limited to, general economic, market and business conditions; micro and macroeconomic trends and conditions, including increases in interest rates, inflation and commodity prices; customer preferences and trends; Parkland’s competitive advantages, including key products and brands, proprietary infrastructure and supply advantage, and ability to maintain such advantages; Parkland’s ability to retain key employees; Parkland’s ability to execute its business objectives, projects and strategies, including the completion, financing and timing thereof, realizing the benefits therefrom and meeting our targets and commitments relating thereto; Parkland’s ability to identify buyers and complete divestments, if any, on terms reasonable to Parkland and in a timely manner; Parkland’s ability to execute on accretive organic initiatives and grow to meet its 2024 Guidance and 2028 Ambitions and expected outcomes; Parkland’s management systems and programs and risk management strategy; Parkland’s ability to pay future dividends and complete share buybacks; competitive environment of our industry; retail pricing, margins and refining crack spreads; availability and pricing of petroleum product supply; volatility of crude oil and refined product prices; ability of suppliers to meet commitments; actions by governmental authorities and other regulators including but not limited to increases in taxes or restricted access to markets; environmental impact; changes in environmental and regulatory laws, including the ability to obtain or maintain required permits; expectations with respect to debt repayment and non-cash working capital; and other factors, many of which are beyond the control of Parkland. In addition, the 2024 Adjusted EBITDA Guidance reflects continued integration of acquired businesses and synergy capture, and organic growth initiatives, and the key material assumptions include: an increase in Retail and Commercial Fuel and petroleum product adjusted gross margin and Food, convenience and other adjusted gross margin of approximately 5 percent as compared to the year ending December 31, 2023; the realization of $100 million of MG&A cost efficiencies by 2024; and Refining adjusted gross margin of approximately $37 to $38 per barrel and average Burnaby Refinery utilization of 85 percent to 90 percent based on the Burnaby Refinery’s crude processing capacity of 55,000 barrels per day. 2024 Available cash flow per share Guidance and 2024 ROIC Guidance assumes invested capital grows at a slower pace than Net Operating Profit After Tax through 2024. 2024 Capital Expenditure Guidance is mainly driven by increased Adjusted EBITDA and assumes no material changes to underlying operations and no planned major turnaround at the Burnaby Refinery. 2028 Ambitions reflect continued organic growth from growth capital expenditure attributable to Parkland in line with historical returns, synergy capture from previously completed acquisitions, identified cost efficiencies, potential acquisitions (not identified, but reflective of expected market returns and similar to expected returns from organic growth initiatives), disciplined inorganic growth opportunities, major planned Burnaby Refinery turnarounds in 2025 and 2028, interest rates on long term bank debt and corporate bonds as set out in the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, with any maturing debts set to retire in the interim periods extended at current prevailing market rates, income taxes at expected corporate income tax rates, including the impact of Pilar II legislation, and the key material assumptions and risks include: ongoing operations without any material economic, legal, environmental or income tax changes and per share metrics impacted by share buybacks, with the assumption that the outstanding common shares do not change materially. See also the risks and uncertainties described in “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information” and “Risk Factors” included in Parkland’s most recently filed Annual Information Form, and in “Forward-Looking Information” and “Risk Factors” in the Management’s Discussion and Analysis dated November 1, 2023, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 (”Q3 2023 MD&A”), each as filed on the System for Electronic Data Analysis and Retrieval + (”SEDAR+”) and available on the Parkland website at www.parkland.ca.

Supplementary Financial Measures

This news release refers to certain non-GAAP financial measures and ratios and supplementary financial measures (collectively “specified financial measures”). Available cash flow and Available cash flow Guidance are non-GAAP measures; Available cash flow per share Guidance, Available cash flow per share Ambition, and ROIC Guidance are non-GAAP financial ratios; and Adjusted EBITDA Guidance, Adjusted EBITDA Ambition, Leverage Ratio Guidance, and Capital Expenditure Guidance are supplementary financial measures, all of which do not have standardized meanings prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards (”IFRS”) and may not be comparable to similar financial measures used by other issuers who may calculate these measures differently. See below for further information on these specified financial measures. See Section 16 of the Q3 2023 MD&A for a discussion of Adjusted EBITDA Guidance, Leverage Ratio Guidance, and Capital Expenditure Guidance, including an explanation of their composition, and, where applicable, their reconciliations to the nearest IFRS measures, which is hereby incorporated by reference into this presentation. Investors are cautioned that these measures should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings or other directly comparable financial measures determined in accordance with IFRS as an indication of Parkland’s performance.

Available cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and Available cash flow per share is a non-GAAP financial ratio. The most directly comparable financial measure for Available cash flow and Available cash flow per share is cash generated from (used in) operating activities. These measures represent Parkland’s ability to generate cash flows for distribution to shareholders and investment in the growth of the business. Available cash flow is calculated as cash generated from (used in) operating activities adjusted for items such as (i) net change in non-cash working capital, (ii) change in other assets and other liabilities, (iii) change in risk management and other, (iv) maintenance capital expenditures, (v) dividends received from investments in associates and joint ventures, (vi) interest on leases and long-term debt, and (vii) principal payments on leases. Available cash flow per share is calculated as Available cash flow divided by the weighted average number of outstanding common shares. Available cash flow Guidance and Available cash flow per share Guidance are the forward-looking metrics of these historical measures for 2024 and Available cash flow per share Ambition is the forward-looking metric of the historical measure for 2028. Available cash flow per share replaced cash generated from (used in) operating activities per share in Parkland’s 2024 Guidance. See following table for a calculation of historical Available cash flow and Available cash flow per share and a reconciliation to cash generated from (used in) operating activities.

Invested capital is a measure of the total amount of capital deployed by Parkland that includes debt and equity, net of cash and cash equivalents (restricted and unrestricted). ROIC is used by management to assess the Company’s efficiency in allocating capital. The most directly comparable financial measure to ROIC is net earnings. ROIC Guidance is the forward-looking metric of this historical measure for 2024. 2024 NOPAT is assumed to grow in proportion to Adjusted EBITDA. The ROIC Guidance of 11 percent+ assumes Invested Capital increases at a slower pace than NOPAT through 2024. The ROIC calculated here differs from the absolute ROIC disclosed in the Management Information Circular. See following table for a calculation of historical ROIC for 2021 and 2022, the calculation of NOPAT and the reconciliation to net earnings and the calculation of Invested Capital.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements contained in this news release constitute forward-looking information and statements (collectively, “forward-looking statements”). When used in this news release the words “expect”, “will”, “could”, “would”, “believe”, “continue”, “pursue” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. In particular, this news release contains forward-looking statements with respect to, among other things: business objectives, strategies and model; Parkland’s strategy to deliver synergies, cost efficiencies, and organic growth and the progress thereof; Parkland’s Revised 2023 Adjusted EBITDA Guidance of $1,800 million to $1,850 million and 2024 Adjusted EBITDA Guidance of approximately $2 billion; Parkland’s ability to realize $100 million of MG&A cost efficiencies by 2024; Parkland’s Revised 2023 Capital Expenditures Guidance of $450 million to $500 million; Parkland’s Leverage Ratio Guidance of 3 times by the end of 2023 and 2 to 3 times by the end of 2024; Parkland’s Cash generated from (used in) operating activities per share Guidance of $9.50 by 2024; and Parkland’s ROIC Guidance of more than 11 percent by 2024.

These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements. No assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct and such forward-looking statements included in this news release should not be unduly relied upon. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this news release. Parkland does not undertake any obligations to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements except as required by securities law. Actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of numerous risks, assumptions and uncertainties including, but not limited to: general economic, market and business conditions; micro and macroeconomic trends and conditions, including increases in interest rates, inflation and commodity prices; Parkland’s ability to execute its business objectives, projects and strategies, including the completion, financing and timing thereof, realizing the benefits therefrom and meeting our targets and commitments relating thereto; Parkland’s management systems and programs and risk management strategy; the competitive environment of our industry; retail pricing, margins and refining crack spreads; availability and pricing of petroleum product supply; volatility of crude oil and refined product prices; ability of suppliers to meet commitments; actions by governmental authorities and other regulators including but not limited to increases in taxes or restricted access to markets; environmental impact; changes in environmental and regulatory laws, including the ability to obtain or maintain required permits; and other factors, many of which are beyond the control of Parkland. In addition, the Revised 2023 Adjusted EBITDA Guidance range reflects the full year contribution of 2022 acquisitions, integration and synergy capture, and organic growth initiatives, and the key material assumptions include: an increase in Retail and Commercial Fuel and petroleum product adjusted gross margin of approximately 10% and Food, convenience and other adjusted gross margin of approximately 15% as compared to the year ended December 31, 2022; and Refining adjusted gross margin of approximately $45 per barrel and average Burnaby Refinery utilization of approximately 80% based on the Burnaby Refinery’s crude processing capacity of 55,000 barrels per day. 2024 Adjusted EBITDA Guidance reflects continued integration and synergy capture, and organic growth initiatives, and the key material assumptions include: an increase in Retail and Commercial Fuel and petroleum product adjusted gross margin and Food, convenience and other adjusted gross margin of approximately 5% as compared to the year ending December 31, 2023; the realization of $100 million of MG&A cost efficiencies by 2024; and Refining adjusted gross margin of approximately $40 per barrel and average Burnaby Refinery utilization of 90% to 95% based on the Burnaby Refinery’s crude processing capacity of 55,000 barrels per day. Leverage Ratio Guidance and Cash generated from (used in) operating activities per share Guidance are mainly driven by increases in Adjusted EBITDA and assume no change in non-cash working capital. Interest expense is excluded from Cash generated from (used in) operating activities. See also the risks and uncertainties described in “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information” and “Risk Factors” included in Parkland’s most recent Annual Information Form, and in “Forward-Looking Information” and “Risk Factors” included in the Q2 2023 MD&A, each filed on SEDAR and available on the Parkland website at www.parkland.ca. The forward-looking statements contained in this news release are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.

Supplementary Financial Measures

This news release refers to Adjusted EBITDA Guidance, Capital Expenditures Guidance (which is the summation of Maintenance Capital Expenditures Guidance and Growth Capital Expenditures Guidance), Leverage Ratio Guidance, Cash generated from (used in) operating activities per share Guidance, Fuel and petroleum adjusted gross margin, and Food, convenience and other adjusted gross margin, which are supplementary financial measures and may not be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers, who may calculate these measures differently. See below and Section 16 of the Q2 2023 MD&A for a discussion of these supplementary financial measures, which is incorporated by reference into this presentation.

Cash generated from (used in) operating activities per share Guidance
This measure represents our forecast of Cash generated from (used in) operating activities per share for the twelve months ending December 31, 2024 and is calculated based on historical data and estimates of future conditions as inputs to make informed forecasts that are predictive in determining the direction of future trends. This measure is a forward-looking measure and the equivalent historical measure is Trailing-twelve-months (”TTM”) cash generated from (used in) operating activities per share. Parkland uses this measure as Guidance to shareholders regarding expected cash generation of Parkland’s business. See Section 16 of the Q2 2023 MD&A for further detail on the composition of TTM cash generated from (used in) operating activities per share. TTM cash generated from (used in) operating activities per share does not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS. It is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Return on Invested Capital (”ROIC”)
This measure is composed of Net Operating Profit After Tax (”NOPAT”) and Invested Capital. ROIC is a non-GAAP ratio and NOPAT and Invested Capital are non-GAAP measures, which do not have standardized meanings under IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similarly named measures disclosed by other issuers. NOPAT describes the profitability of Parkland’s base operations, excluding the impact of leverage and expenses not directly related to operations. Invested Capital is a measure for the total amount of capital deployed by Parkland. Each is used by management to assess the Company’s efficiency in allocating capital. See table below for a calculation of historical ROIC for 2021 and 2022, the calculation of NOPAT and the reconciliation to net earnings and the calculation of Invested Capital.

ROIC Guidance
This measure is the forward-looking metric of ROIC for 2024. 2024 NOPAT is assumed to grow in proportion to Adjusted EBITDA, where Parkland’s Adjusted EBITDA Guidance is $2 billion for 2024. The ROIC Guidance of more than 11 percent assumes Invested Capital increases at a slower pace than NOPAT through 2024. The ROIC calculated here differs from the absolute ROIC disclosed in the Management Information Circular.

I am confident we will deliver our $2 billion Adjusted EBITDA ambition by 2025 without further acquisitions, while reducing leverage, and improving shareholder returns.”

Q2 2023 Segment Highlights

  • Canada delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $150 million, down 14 percent from Q2 2022 ($174 million). Fuel unit margins were lower than the comparable historical highs in the second quarter of 2022. Fuel volume increased from the prior year due to Company Volume Same Store Sales Growth (”SSSG”2) of 9.3 percent and the incremental benefit of 2022 acquisitions. Food and Company C-Store SSSG (excluding cigarettes)2 increased to 3.1 percent, up from (0.6) percent in Q2 2022.
  • International delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $168 million, up 93 percent, from Q2 2022 ($87 million). Performance was driven by the consolidation of Sol, higher volumes in our retail and contracted commercial businesses, organic growth in our aviation business, and contributions from our Jamaica acquisition.
  • USA delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $74 million, up 45 percent from Q2 2022 ($51 million). Strong performance reflects the capabilities of our USA team and was underpinned by strong fuel unit margins. Favourable market conditions and strong market positions enabled us to capture margin opportunities.
  • Refining delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $109 million, down 34 percent, from Q2 2022 ($164 million) primarily reflecting lower crack spreads. The scheduled maintenance turnaround was completed in early April and composite utilization5 was 91.0 percent.
  • The Company realized non-recurring foreign exchange gains of $25 million on the settlement of financing balances during the quarter.
  • Parkland’s total recordable injury frequency rate5 on a trailing-twelve-months basis was 0.87, a decrease of 18 percent compared to 1.06 in the second quarter of 2022.

Actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of numerous risks, assumptions and uncertainties including, but not limited to: general economic, market and business conditions, including the duration and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine conflict; micro and macroeconomic trends and conditions, including increases in interest rates, inflation and commodity prices; Parkland’s ability to execute its business objectives, projects and strategies, including the completion, financing and timing thereof, realizing the benefits therefrom and meeting our targets and commitments relating thereto; Parkland’s management systems and programs and risk management strategy; the competitive environment of our industry; retail pricing, margins and refining crack spreads; availability and pricing of petroleum product supply; volatility of crude oil and refined product prices; ability of suppliers to meet commitments; actions by governmental authorities and other regulators including but not limited to increases in taxes or restricted access to markets; environmental impact; changes in environmental and regulatory laws, including the ability to obtain or maintain required permits; and other factors, many of which are beyond the control of Parkland. In addition, the key material assumptions underlying the 2023 Adjusted EBITDA Guidance Range include: an increase in the retail fuel and petroleum product volumes by approximately 10% as compared to the year ended December 31, 2022, reflecting the full year contribution of 2022 acquisitions, integration and synergy capture, and organic growth initiatives; Food, convenience and other gross margin of approximately 30% of total retail gross margin and approximately 20% of total commercial gross margin; Refining adjusted gross margin of approximately $40 per barrel and average Burnaby Refinery utilization of between 75% and 85% based on the Burnaby Refinery’s crude processing capacity of 55,000 barrels per day; and an approximate $100 million Adjusted EBITDA impact as a result of 2023 refinery turnaround and maintenance capital expenditure of approximately $100 million relating thereto. The key material assumptions underlying the 2025 Adjusted EBITDA Ambition include an estimated $150 million of synergies and cost efficiencies and $180 million of organic growth compared to 2022 actuals. See also the risks and uncertainties described in “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information” and “Risk Factors” included in Parkland’s most recent Annual Information Form, and in “Forward-Looking Information” and “Risk Factors” included in the Q2 2023 MD&A, each filed on SEDAR and available on the Parkland website at www.parkland.ca. The forward-looking statements contained in this news release are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.

Non-Financial Measures

Parkland uses a number of non-financial measures, including composite utilization and total recordable injury frequency rate, in measuring the success of our strategic objectives and to set variable compensation targets for employees. These non-financial measures are not accounting measures, do not have comparable International Financial Reporting Standards (”IFRS”) measures, and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers, as other issuers may calculate these metrics differently. See Section 16 of the Q2 2023 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details on the non-financial measures used by Parkland.

Specified Financial Measures

This news release contains total of segments measures, non-GAAP financial measures and non-GAAP financial ratios, supplementary financial measures and capital management measures (collectively, “specified financial measures”). Parkland’s management uses certain specified financial measures to analyze the operating and financial performance, leverage, and liquidity of the business. These specified financial measures do not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The specified financial measures should not be considered in isolation or used in substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. See Section 16 of the Q2 2023 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding specified financial measures used by Parkland.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Ratios

Adjusted earnings (loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share is a non-GAAP financial ratio, each representing the underlying core operating performance of business activities of Parkland at a consolidated level.

Adjusted earnings (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share represent how well Parkland’s operational business is performing, while considering depreciation and amortization, interest on leases and long-term debt, accretion and other finance costs, and income taxes. The Company uses these measures because it believes that Adjusted earnings (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share are useful for management and investors in assessing the Company’s overall performance as they exclude certain significant items that are not reflective of the Company’s underlying business operations.

Adjusted earnings (loss) excludes costs that are not considered representative of Parkland’s underlying core operating performance including: (i) costs related to potential and completed acquisitions, (ii) non-core acquisition and integration employee costs, (iii) business integration and restructuring costs, (iv) changes in the fair value of share-based compensation liabilities, (v) unrealized gains and losses on (a) foreign exchange, (b) risk management assets and liabilities unless they relate to underlying physical sales activity in the current period and (c) derivatives, (vi) adjustments to foreign exchange gains and losses as a result of cash pooling arrangements and refinancing activities, (vii) realized foreign exchange gains and losses on accrued financing costs in foreign currency and the offsetting realized risk management gains and losses on the related foreign exchange risk management instruments, (viii) changes in values of the Sol Put Option, Redemption Options, environmental liabilities and asset retirement obligations, (ix) loss on inventory write-downs for which there are offsetting associated risk management derivatives with unrealized gains, (x) impairments of non-current assets, (xi) loss on modification of long-term debt, (xii) earnings impact from hyperinflation accounting, (xiii) certain realized gains and losses on risk management assets and liabilities that are related to underlying physical sales activity in another period, (xiv) gains and losses on asset disposals, (xv) adjustment for the effect of market-based performance conditions for equity settled share-based award settlements, and (xvi) other adjusting items. Parkland’s Adjusted earnings (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share are also adjusted to include Parkland’s proportionate share of its joint-venture investees’ Adjusted earnings (loss). Concurrently with Parkland entering into the Share Exchange Agreement, effective August 4, 2022, Parkland does not allocate a portion of Adjusted earnings (loss) to NCI and includes 100 percent of International results as Adjusted earnings (loss).

Please see below for the reconciliation of Adjusted earnings (loss) to net earnings (loss) and calculation of Adjusted earnings (loss) per share.

(2)

The tax normalization adjustment was applied to net earnings (loss) adjusting items that were considered temporary differences, such as acquisition, integration and other costs, unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses, unrealized gains and losses on risk management and other, gains and losses on asset disposals, changes in fair value of redemption options, changes in estimates of environmental provisions, loss on inventory write-downs for which there are offsetting associated risk management derivatives with unrealized gains, impairments of non-current assets and debt modifications. The tax impact was estimated using the effective tax rates applicable to jurisdictions where the related items occur.

(3)

Weighted average number of common shares are calculated in accordance with Parkland’s accounting policy contained in Note 2 of the Annual Consolidated Financial Statements.

Food and Company C-Store SSSG refers to the period-over-period sales growth generated by retail food and convenience stores at the same company sites. The effects of opening and closing stores, temporary closures (including closures for ON the RUN / Marché Express conversions), expansions of stores, renovations of stores, and stores with changes in food service models in the period are excluded to derive a comparable same-store metric. Same-store sales growth is a metric commonly used in the retail industry that provides meaningful information to investors in assessing the health and strength of Parkland’s brands and retail network, which ultimately impacts financial performance. Food and Company C-Store SSSG does not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Please see below for a reconciliation of convenience store revenue (Food and C-Store revenue) of the Canada segment with the Food and Company C-Store same store sales (”SSS”) and calculation of the Food and Company C-Store SSSG.

Percentages are calculated based on actual amounts and are impacted by rounding.

(2)

POS values used to calculate Food and Company C-Store SSSG are not a Parkland financial measure and do not form part of Parkland’s consolidated financial statements as Parkland earns rental income from retailers in the form of a percentage rent on convenience store sales. POS values are calculated based on the information obtained from Parkland’s POS systems at retail sites, including transactional data, such as sales, costs and volumes which are subject to internal controls over financial reporting. We also use this data to calculate rental income from retailers in the form of a percentage rent on convenience store sales, which is recorded as revenue in our consolidated financial statements.

(3)

Includes rental income from retailers in the form of a percentage rent on Food and Company C-Store sales, royalty, franchisee fees and excludes revenues from automated teller machine, POS system licensing fees, and other.

(4)

This adjustment excludes the effects of acquisitions, opening and closing stores, temporary closures (including closures for ON the RUN / Marché Express conversions), expansions of stores, renovations of stores, and stores with changes in food service models, to derive a comparable same-store metric.

(5)

Excludes sales from acquisitions completed within the year as these will not impact the metric until after the completion of one year of the acquisitions when the sales or volume generated establish the baseline for these metrics.

The non-GAAP financial measures and ratios should not be considered in isolation or used in substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Except as otherwise indicated, these non-GAAP measures and ratios are calculated and disclosed on a consistent basis from period to period. See Section 16 of the Q2 2023 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding Parkland’s non-GAAP financial measures and ratios.

Supplementary Financial Measures

Parkland uses a number of supplementary financial measures, including cash generated from (used in) operating activities per share, and liquidity available to evaluate the success of our strategic objectives and to set variable compensation targets for employees. These measures may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers, as other issuers may calculate these metrics differently. See Section 16 of the Q2 2023 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding supplementary financial measures used by Parkland.

Capital Management Measures

Parkland’s primary capital management measure is the Leverage Ratio, which is used internally by key management personnel to monitor Parkland’s overall financial strength, capital structure flexibility, and ability to service debt and meet current and future commitments. The Leverage Ratio is calculated as a ratio of Leverage Debt to Leverage EBITDA (each as defined in the Q2 2023 Consolidated Financial Statements) and does not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS. It is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. See Section 16 of the Q2 2023 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding capital management measures used by Parkland.

Total of Segments Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is a total of segments measure used by the chief operating decision maker to make decisions about resource allocation to the segment and to assess its performance. In accordance with IFRS, adjustments and eliminations made in preparing an entity’s financial statements and allocations of revenue, expenses, and gains or losses shall be included in determining reported segment profit or loss only if they are included in the measure of the segment’s profit or loss that is used by the chief operating decision maker. As such, Parkland’s Adjusted EBITDA is unlikely to be comparable to similarly named measures presented by other issuers, who may calculate these measures differently. Parkland views Adjusted EBITDA as the key measure for the underlying core operating performance of business segment activities at an operational level. Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to set targets for Parkland (including annual guidance and variable compensation targets) and is used to determine Parkland’s ability to service debt, finance capital expenditures and provide for dividend payments to shareholders. See Section 16 of the Q2 2023 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding total of segments measures used by Parkland. Refer to the table below for the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net earnings (loss) for the three months ended June 30, 2023 and June 30, 2022.

Other adjusting Items for the three months ended June 30, 2023 mainly include: (i) the share of depreciation and income taxes for Isla joint venture of $3 million (2022 – $3 million); (ii) other income of $2 million (2022 – $1 million expense); (iii) customer finance income of $1 million (2022 – nil); (iv) realized risk management gain related to underlying physical sales activity in another period of $4 million (2022 – nil); and (v) realized gain on foreign exchange related to cash pooling arrangements of $1 million (2022 – $2 million loss).

Parkland uses Adjusted gross margin as a measure of segment profit (loss) to analyze the performance of sale and purchase transactions and performance on margin. Adjusted gross margin excludes the effects of significant items of income and expenditure that are not considered representative of Parkland’s underlying core margin performance and may have an impact on the quality of margins, such as (i) unrealized gains and losses on (a) foreign exchange, (b) risk management and other unless underlying physical sales activity has occurred, (ii) loss on inventory write-downs for which there are offsetting associated risk management and other with unrealized gains, (iii) certain realized gains and losses on risk management assets and liabilities that are related to underlying physical sales activity in another period, and (iv) other adjusting items.

Parkland Reports 2023 First Quarter Results

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $395 million
Safely completed scheduled turnaround at Burnaby Refinery on time and on budget

CALGARY, AB, May 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX: PKI), today announced its financial and operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

Q1 2023 Highlights

  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Parkland (”Adjusted EBITDA”1) of $395 million, consistent with the first quarter of 2022 with contributions from acquisitions and organic growth offsetting the impact of the scheduled turnaround completed at the Burnaby Refinery in the first quarter of 2023 (the “2023 Turnaround”).
  • Net earnings attributable to Parkland (”net earnings”) of $77 million ($0.44 per share, basic) up 40 percent from the first quarter of 2022, and Adjusted earnings attributable to Parkland (”Adjusted earnings”2) of $114 million ($0.65 per share, basic) down 16 percent from the first quarter of 2022.
  • Cash generated from operating activities of $314 million ($1.79 per share, basic3) up $362 million from the first quarter of 2022.
  • Leverage ratio4 of 3.3x (3.4x in Q4 2022) and liquidity available3 of $1.5 billion.
  • Continued to expand our ON the RUN convenience brand to approximately 670 locations and grew our JOURNIETM rewards loyalty program to 4.5 million members.
  • Subsequent to the quarter, announced a partnership between JOURNIETM rewards loyalty program and Aeroplan and opened the first ON the RUN standalone retail location in British Columbia.

“The Company’s disciplined focus on delivering shareholder value continues to guide us and we are on track for a successful year. Our performance this quarter demonstrates our ability to execute on our strategy, capture synergies and deliver organic growth throughout our retail and commercial businesses,” said Bob Espey, President and Chief Executive Officer. “I am confident Parkland will deliver its $2 billion Adjusted EBITDA ambition by 2025 without additional acquisitions, while reducing leverage and improving shareholder returns.”

Q1 2023 Segment Highlights

  • Canada delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $167 million, down 13 percent from Q1 2022 ($191 million). Unseasonably warm weather lowered commercial volumes, partially offset by 2022 acquisitions and organic growth. Fuel margins declined year-over-year due to favourable retail market conditions in Q1 2022. Food and Company C-Store Same Store Sales Growth (”SSSG”) (excluding cigarettes)2 was 6.8 percent (1.7 percent in Q1 2022).
  • International delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $183 million, up 123 percent, from Q1 2022 ($82 million). Performance was largely driven by the consolidation of the remaining 25% of Sol and additional volumes captured largely in the contracted commercial and retail business, organic growth initiatives and synergies.
  • USA delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $21 million, down 55 percent, from Q1 2022 ($47 million). Results were negatively impacted by the compliance obligations accounted for in the current period of $17 million, commodity price fluctuations in 2022 and severe winter weather across certain markets.
  • Refining delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $38 million, down 57 percent, from Q1 2022 ($89 million) reflecting the scheduled 2023 Turnaround. Composite utilization5 was 33.9 percent. These impacts were partially offset by increased sales of imported product and efficient management of pipeline capacity.

Parkland’s sustainability accomplishments are described in the Q1 2023 MD&A (as defined below). Notably, Parkland’s total recordable injury frequency rate (”TRIF”5) on a trailing-twelve-months basis was 0.97 in Q1 2023, a decrease of 18 percent compared to the Q1 2022 TRIF of 1.19.

Parkland does not undertake any obligations to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements except as required by securities law. Actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of numerous risks, assumptions and uncertainties including, but not limited to: general economic, market and business conditions, including the duration and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine conflict; micro and macroeconomic trends and conditions, including increases in interest rates, inflation and commodity prices; Parkland’s ability to execute its business objectives, projects and strategies, including the completion, financing and timing thereof, realizing the benefits therefrom and meeting our targets and commitments relating thereto; Parkland’s management systems and programs and risk management strategy; the competitive environment of our industry; retail pricing, margins and refining crack spreads; availability and pricing of petroleum product supply; volatility of crude oil and refined product prices; ability of suppliers to meet commitments; actions by governmental authorities and other regulators including but not limited to increases in taxes or restricted access to markets; environmental impact; changes in environmental and regulatory laws, including the ability to obtain or maintain required permits; and other factors, many of which are beyond the control of Parkland. Assumptions related to Parkland’s ambition to reach $2 billion of Adjusted EBITDA by 2025 include an estimated $150 million of synergies from completed acquisitions and cost efficiencies and $180 million of organic growth compared to the 2022 financial results. See also the risks and uncertainties described in “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information” and “Risk Factors” included in Parkland’s most recent Annual Information Form, and in “Forward-Looking Information” and “Risk Factors” included in the Q1 2023 MD&A, each filed on SEDAR and available on the Parkland website at www.parkland.ca. The forward-looking statements contained in this news release are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.

Non-Financial Measures

Parkland uses a number of non-financial measures, including composite utilization and total recordable injury frequency rate, in measuring the success of our strategic objectives and to set variable compensation targets for employees. These non-financial measures are not accounting measures, do not have comparable International Financial Reporting Standards (”IFRS”) measures, and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers, as other issuers may calculate these metrics differently. See Section 16 of the Q1 2023 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details on the non-financial measures used by Parkland.

Specified Financial Measures

This news release contains total of segments measures, non-GAAP financial measures and non-GAAP financial ratios, supplementary financial measures and capital management measures (collectively, “specified financial measures”). Parkland’s management uses certain specified financial measures to analyze the operating and financial performance, leverage and liquidity of the business. These specified financial measures do not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The specified financial measures should not be considered in isolation or used in substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. See Section 16 of the Q1 2023 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding specified financial measures used by Parkland.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Ratios

Adjusted earnings (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share are a non-GAAP financial measure and a non-GAAP financial ratio, respectively, representing the underlying core operating performance of business activities of Parkland at a consolidated level.

Adjusted earnings (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share represent how well Parkland’s operational business is performing, while considering depreciation and amortization, interest on leases and long-term debt, accretion and other finance costs, and income taxes. The Company uses these measures because it believes that Adjusted earnings (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share are useful for management and investors in assessing the Company’s overall performance as they exclude certain significant items that are not reflective of the Company’s underlying business operations.

Adjusted earnings (loss) excludes costs that are not considered representative of Parkland’s underlying core operating performance including: (i) costs related to potential and completed acquisitions, (ii) non-core acquisition and integration employee costs, (iii) business integration and restructuring costs, (iv) changes in the fair value of share-based compensation liabilities, (v) unrealized gains and losses on (a) foreign exchange, (b) risk management assets and liabilities unless they relate to underlying physical sales activity in current period and (c) derivatives, (vi) realized foreign exchange gains and losses as a result of cash pooling arrangements and refinancing activities, (vii) realized foreign exchange gains and losses on accrued financing costs in foreign currency and the offsetting realized risk management gains and losses on the related foreign exchange risk management instruments, (viii) changes in values of the Sol put option, redemption options under Parkland’s senior unsecured notes, environmental liabilities and asset retirement obligations, (ix) loss on inventory write-downs for which there are offsetting associated risk management derivatives with unrealized gains, (x) impairments of non-current assets, (xi) loss on modification of long-term debt, (xii) earnings impact from hyperinflation accounting, (xiii) certain realized gains and losses on risk management assets and liabilities that are related to underlying physical sales activity in another period, (xiv) gains and losses on asset disposals, (xv) adjustment for the effect of market-based performance conditions for equity settled share-based award settlements, and (xvi) other adjusting items. Parkland’s Adjusted earnings (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share are also adjusted to include Parkland’s proportionate share of its joint-venture investees’ Adjusted earnings (loss). Concurrently with Parkland entering into the Share Exchange Agreement, effective August 4, 2022, Parkland does not allocate a portion of Adjusted earnings (loss) to NCI and includes 100 percent of International results as Adjusted earnings (loss).

The tax normalization adjustment was applied to net earnings (loss) adjusting items that were considered temporary differences, such as acquisition, integration and other costs, unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses, unrealized gains and losses on risk management and other, gains and losses on asset disposals, changes in fair value of redemption options, changes in estimates of environmental provisions, loss on inventory write-downs for which there are offsetting associated risk management derivatives with unrealized gains, impairments of non-current assets and debt modifications. The tax impact was estimated using the effective tax rates applicable to jurisdictions where the related items occur.

(3)

Weighted average number of common shares are calculated in accordance with Parkland’s accounting policy contained in Note 2 of the Annual Consolidated Financial Statements.

Food and Company C-Store SSSG refers to the period-over-period sales growth generated by retail food and convenience stores at the same company sites. The effects of opening and closing stores, temporary closures (including closures for ON the RUN / Marché Express conversions), expansions of stores, renovations of stores, and stores with changes in food service models in the period are excluded to derive a comparable same-store metric. Same-store sales growth is a metric commonly used in the retail industry that provides meaningful information to investors in assessing the health and strength of Parkland’s brands and retail network, which ultimately impacts financial performance. Food and Company C-Store SSSG does not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Please see below for a reconciliation of convenience store revenue (Food and C-Store revenue) of the Canada segment with the Food and Company C-Store same store sales (”SSS”) and calculation of the Food and Company C-Store SSSG.

(3)

Includes rental income from retailers in the form of a percentage rent on Food and Company C-Store sales, royalty, franchisee fees and excludes revenues from automated teller machines, POS system licensing fees, and others.

(4)

This adjustment excludes the effects of acquisitions, opening and closing stores, temporary closures (including closures for ON the RUN / Marché Express conversions), expansions of stores, renovations of stores, and stores with changes in food service models, to derive a comparable same-store metric.

(5)

Excludes sales from acquisitions completed within the year as these will not impact the metric until after the completion of one year of the acquisitions when the sales or volume generated establish the baseline for these metrics.

The non-GAAP financial measures and ratios should not be considered in isolation or used in substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Except as otherwise indicated, these non-GAAP measures and ratios are calculated and disclosed on a consistent basis from period to period. See section 16 of the Q1 2023 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding Parkland’s non-GAAP financial measures and ratios.

Supplementary Financial Measures

Parkland uses a number of supplementary financial measures, including cash generated from (used in) operating activities per share and liquidity available to evaluate the success of our strategic objectives and to set variable compensation targets for employees. These measures may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers, as other issuers may calculate these metrics differently. See Section 16 of the Q1 2023 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding supplementary financial measures used by Parkland.

Capital Management Measures

Parkland’s primary capital management measure is the Leverage Ratio, which is used internally by key management personnel to monitor Parkland’s overall financial strength, capital structure flexibility, and ability to service debt and meet current and future commitments. The Leverage Ratio is calculated as a ratio of Leverage Debt to Leverage EBITDA (each as defined in the Q1 2023 Consolidated Financial Statements) and does not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS. It is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. See Section 16 of the Q1 2023 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding capital management measures used by Parkland.

Total of Segments Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is a total of segments measure used by the chief operating decision maker to make decisions about resource allocation to the segment and to assess its performance. In accordance with IFRS, adjustments and eliminations made in preparing an entity’s financial statements and allocations of revenue, expenses, and gains or losses shall be included in determining reported segment profit or loss only if they are included in the measure of the segment’s profit or loss that is used by the chief operating decision maker. As such, Parkland’s Adjusted EBITDA is unlikely to be comparable to similarly named measures presented by other issuers, who may calculate these measures differently. Parkland views Adjusted EBITDA as the key measure for the underlying core operating performance of business segment activities at an operational level. Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to set targets for Parkland (including annual guidance and variable compensation targets) and is used to determine Parkland’s ability to service debt, finance capital expenditures and provide for dividend payments to shareholders. See Section 16 of the Q1 2023 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding total of segments measures used by Parkland. Refer to the table below for the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net earnings (loss) for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and March 31, 2022.

Refer to Note 12 of the Interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Other Adjusting Items for the three months ended March 31, 2023 mainly include: (i) the effect of market-based performance conditions for equity-settled share-based award settlements of $13 million (2022 – nil), and (ii) the share of depreciation and income taxes for Isla joint venture of $3 million (2022 – $4 million).

Parkland uses Adjusted gross margin as a measure of segment profit (loss) to analyze the performance of sale and purchase transactions and performance on margin. Adjusted gross margin excludes the effects of significant items of income and expenditure that are not considered representative of Parkland’s underlying core margin performance and may have an impact on the quality of margins, such as (i) unrealized gains and losses on (a) foreign exchange, (b) risk management and other unless underlying physical sales activity has occurred, (ii) loss on inventory write-downs for which there are offsetting associated risk management and other with unrealized gains, (iii) certain realized gains and losses on risk management assets and liabilities that are related to underlying physical sales activity in another period, and (iv) other adjusting items.

Parkland announces 2023 guidance

2023 Adjusted EBITDA guidance1 of $1.7 billion to $1.8 billion
2025 Adjusted EBITDA ambition of $2 billion without further acquisitions
Reducing leverage and enhancing shareholder returns

CALGARY, AB, Dec. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, “our”, or the “Company”) (TSX: PKI) announced today its 2023 guidance which underscores the strength of its differentiated business model, diversified customer base and operating geographies.

“We are two years into the four-year strategy outlined at our investor day last year,” said Bob Espey, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Having accelerated acquisitions, we are focused on integration, capturing synergies, deleveraging and enhancing shareholder returns. We expect to deliver record Adjusted EBITDA in 2023 and have high confidence in achieving our $2 billion Adjusted EBITDA ambition by 2025 without further acquisitions.”

“Our balanced capital allocation approach prioritizes deleveraging, followed by enhancing shareholder distributions and growth,” added Espey. “We will exercise strict capital discipline, investing in accretive opportunities and optimizing our portfolio to ensure strategic fit and attractive returns. We are entering a phase of our strategy where we will harvest value from the unique business we have created.”

2023 Guidance
  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Parkland (”Adjusted EBITDA”) of $1,700 million to $1,800 million, which includes an approximate $100 million impact as a result of the eight-week turnaround planned at the refinery in Burnaby, British Columbia (the “Burnaby Refinery”) in the first quarter of 2023.2
  • Capital expenditures of $500 million to $550 million, which is comprised of:
    • Maintenance capital expenditures1 of $300 million to $325 million, which includes approximately $100 million for the planned turnaround at the Burnaby Refinery.
    • Growth capital expenditures1 of $200 million to $225 million, which we expect to be largely funded by anticipated network optimization dispositions.
  • Reduce Leverage Ratio1 to approximately 3 times by year-end 2023.
2025 Outlook

We have high confidence in meeting our 2025 strategic ambition, which includes:

  • $2 billion of Adjusted EBITDA without further acquisitions.
  • Reduce Leverage Ratio to the low end of our target range of 2 to 3 times by year-end 2025.
  • Cash flow generated by operating activities of approximately $9.50 per common share.3

We have made significant progress advancing our strategy and will continue to drive organic growth by:

  • Harnessing our integrated supply platform to extract greater value from our retail and commercial network.
  • Expanding ON the RUN across Canada and into the United States, growing membership of the JOURNIE™ loyalty program, and advancing our food strategy.
  • Helping customers lower their environmental impact with renewable fuels, carbon offsets, and Electric Vehicle charging.
Business model and strategy

Our proven business model is centered around organic growth, our supply advantage, driven by scale and our integrated refinery and supply infrastructure, acquiring prudently, and integrating successfully. Our strategy is focused on developing our existing business in resilient markets, growing our food, convenience, and renewable energy businesses, and helping customers to decarbonize.

Supplementary Financial Measures

This press release refers to Adjusted EBITDA guidance, maintenance capital expenditures guidance, growth capital expenditures guidance and Leverage Ratio guidance, which are supplementary financial measures and may not be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers, who may calculate these measures differently. See Section 14 of the Q3 2022 MD&A for a discussion of Adjusted EBITDA guidance, maintenance capital expenditures guidance and growth capital expenditures guidance, which is incorporated by reference into this presentation. See below for details on the Leverage Ratio guidance.

Leverage Ratio Guidance

This measure represents our forecast of the Leverage Ratio and is calculated based on historical data and estimates of future conditions as inputs to make informed forecasts that are predictive in determining the direction of future trends. This measure is a forward-looking measure of which the equivalent historical measure is the Leverage Ratio. See Note 7 of the Q3 2022 interim condensed consolidated financial statements for further detail on the composition of the Leverage Ratio. The Leverage Ratio does not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS. It is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Parkland Announces 2022 Third Quarter Results

Completed previously announced acquisitions
Focused on balance sheet strength and shareholder distributions
On track with 2022 Adjusted EBITDA1 guidance range of $1.6 to $1.7 billion

CALGARY, AB, Nov. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX: PKI), today announced its financial and operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022.

Q3 2022 Highlights

  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Parkland (”Adjusted EBITDA”1) of $328 million, down approximately 10 percent from Q3 2021. Excluding previously disclosed spot wholesale inventory and risk management losses in our USA segment of $65 million, Adjusted EBITDA was $393 million, up 8 percent from Q3 2021.
  • Net earnings attributable to Parkland of $105 million ($0.67 per share, basic), down from $110 million ($0.72 per share, basic) from Q3 2021, and Adjusted earnings attributable to Parkland1 of $49 million ($0.31 per share, basic), down from $129 million ($0.85 per share, basic) from Q3 2021.
  • Trailing twelve months (”TTM”) distributable cash flow1 of $726 million ($4.68 per share) and Q3 2022 cash generated from operating activities of $402 million, up $14 million and $202 million, respectively, from the comparable prior year periods.
  • Leverage ratio1 of 3.5x, up from 3.2x in the prior quarter. Long-term debt primarily increased due to the completion of previously announced acquisitions and foreign exchange impacts.
  • Fuel volumes of approximately 7 billion litres, up over 13 percent from Q3 2021, reflecting the strength of our marketing business and the impact of acquisitions.
  • Completed the previously announced acquisitions of select Husky branded retail locations and the Jamaican business of GB Group. Subsequent to the quarter, we completed the consolidation of our International segment.
  • Parkland is suspending its enhanced Dividend Reinvestment Plan for its common shares until further notice. As a result, shareholders will only receive future dividends in cash.

“Record year to date Adjusted EBITDA puts us on track to deliver our 2022 guidance,” said Bob Espey, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We have completed all previously announced acquisitions and remain focused on integrating the acquired businesses and capturing synergies. We have demonstrated disciplined capital allocation and will strike a balance between reducing our leverage ratio, enhancing shareholder distributions and growth. We anticipate a strong 2023 and remain confident in achieving our $2 billion Adjusted EBITDA ambition by 2025.”

Q3 2022 Segment Highlights

  • Canada delivered Adjusted EBITDA1 of $140 million, up approximately 4 percent from Q3 2021 ($134 million). Performance was underpinned by strong fuel unit and c-store margins and acquisitions.
  • International delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $104 million, up 25 percent, from Q3 2021 ($83 million). Performance was underpinned by our consolidation of our International segment and volume growth driven by ongoing tourism recovery.
  • USA delivered an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $18 million, down from Adjusted EBITDA of $43 million in Q3 2021. Excluding the impact of previously disclosed spot wholesale inventory and risk management losses, Adjusted EBITDA from our retail and commercial businesses was $47 million, an increase of 9 percent from Q3 2021, driven by acquisitions, strong fuel unit margins and marine contract wins.
  • Refining delivered Adjusted EBITDA1 of $135 million, up 7 percent, from Q3 2021 ($126 million). Performance was underpinned by strong refining crack margins, consistent operations, and composite utilization2 of 94 percent (101 percent in Q3 2021), partially offset by higher operating costs.

Sustainability Leadership

Sustainability is deeply embedded across our business. Accomplishments from the third quarter, and year-to-date are included in the Q3 2022 MD&A. Third quarter highlights include:

  • Continued reduction in year-over-year TTM lost time and total recordable injury frequency rates2.
  • Co-processed over 32 million litres of bio-feedstocks; equivalent to removing over 30,000 cars off the road.
  • Generated $16 million of Total Renewable Adjusted EBITDA1.
  • Published our 2021 sustainability report, available here.

When used in this news release the words “expect”, “will”, “could”, “would”, “believe”, “continue”, “pursue” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. In particular, this news release contains forward-looking statements with respect to, among other things: business objectives and strategies; Parkland’s expectation of meeting its  2022 Adjusted EBITDA guidance; Parkland’s expectation of a strong 2023 and being on track to achieve its ambition for $2 billion of Adjusted EBITDA by 2025; the payment of future dividends, if any; integrating acquisitions, and capturing synergies; and Parkland’s expected capital allocation, including balancing reducing Parkland’s leverage ratio, enhancing shareholder distributions and growth.

These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements. No assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct and such forward-looking statements included in this news release should not be unduly relied upon. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this news release. Parkland does not undertake any obligations to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements except as required by securities law. Actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of numerous risks, assumptions and uncertainties including, but not limited to: general economic, market and business conditions, including the duration and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine conflict; Parkland’s ability to execute its business strategies, including without limitation, Parkland’s ability to successfully integrate acquisitions, capture synergies, reduce its leverage ratio, successfully implement organic growth initiatives and to finance such acquisitions and initiatives on reasonable terms; Parkland’s ability to complete transactions and projects; competitive action by other companies; refining and marketing margins; the ability of suppliers to meet commitments; actions by governmental authorities and other regulators including but not limited to increases in taxes or restricted access to markets; changes and developments in environmental and other regulations; and other factors, many of which are beyond the control of Parkland.

The forward-looking statements contained in this news release are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.

Non-Financial Measures

Parkland uses a number of non-financial measures, including composite utilization, TTM lost time injury frequency rate and TTM total recordable injury frequency rate, in measuring the success of our strategic objectives and to set variable compensation targets for employees. These non-financial measures are not accounting measures, do not have comparable International Financial Reporting Standards (”IFRS”) measures, and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers, as other issuers may calculate these metrics differently. See Section 14 of the Q3 2022 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details on the non-financial measures used by Parkland.

Specified Financial Measures

This news release contains total of segments measures, non-GAAP financial measures and ratios and supplementary financial measures and capital management measures (collectively, “specified financial measures”). Parkland’s management uses certain specified financial measures to analyze the operating and financial performance, leverage and liquidity of the business. These specified financial measures do not have any standardized meaning and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The specified financial measures should not be considered in isolation or used in substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. See Section 14 of the Q3 2022 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding specified financial measures used by Parkland.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Ratios

Adjusted earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure and Adjusted earnings per share is a non-GAAP financial ratio included in this news release to assist management, investors and analysts with the analysis of the core operating performance of business activities of Parkland on a consolidated level. This non-GAAP financial measure and ratio do not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures and ratios should not be considered in isolation or used in substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Except as otherwise indicated, these non-GAAP measures and ratios are calculated and disclosed on a consistent basis from period to period. See section 14 of the Q3 2022 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding Parkland’s non-GAAP financial measures and ratios. See below for the reconciliation of Adjusted earnings (loss) to net earnings (loss) and calculation of Adjusted earnings (loss) per share for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and September 30, 2021.

Other (gains) and losses for the three months ended September 30, 2022 include the following: (i) $59 million non-cash valuation gain (2021 – $40 million loss) due to the change in redemption value of Sol Put Option; (ii) $37 million non-cash valuation gain (2021 – $38 million gain) due to the change in fair value of redemption options; and (iii) $8 million loss (2021 – $8 million loss) in Other items. For additional information on the Sol Put Option, see the Q3 2022 MD&A.

(2)

Other Adjusting Items for the three months ended September 30, 2022 mainly include the share of depreciation and income taxes for Isla joint venture of $2 million (2021 - $3 million).

(3)

The tax normalization adjustment was applied to net earnings (loss) adjusting items that were considered temporary differences, such as gains and losses on asset disposals, acquisition, integration and other costs, unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses, gains and losses on risk management and other, changes in fair value of redemption options, changes in estimates of environmental provisions, loss on inventory write-downs for which there are offsetting associated risk management derivatives with unrealized gains, and debt modifications. The tax impact was estimated using the effective tax rates applicable to jurisdictions where the related items occur. For additional information on the Isla Joint Venture, see the Q3 2022 MD&A.

(4)

Weighted average number of common shares are calculated in accordance with Parkland’s accounting policy contained in Note 2 of the Annual Consolidated Financial Statements.

TTM distributable cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and TTM distributable cash flow per share is a non-GAAP ratio. TTM distributable cash flow is a cash metric that adjusts for the impact of seasonality in Parkland’s business by removing non-cash working capital items and excludes the effect of items that are not considered representative of Parkland’s ability to generate cash flows. Such items include: (i) acquisition, integration, and other costs; (ii) turnaround maintenance capital expenditures, and; (iii) interest on leases and long-term debt, and principal payments on leases attributable to non-controlling interests. Distributable cash flow does not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Parkland uses this non-GAAP financial measure to monitor normalized cash flows of the business by eliminating the impact of Parkland’s working capital fluctuations and expenditures used in acquisition, integration and other activities, which can vary significantly from quarter-to-quarter.

For comparative purposes, information for previous periods was restated due to a change in presentation of cash flows from (used in) operating and financing activities. Interest paid on long-term debt and leases, formerly included in “Cash generated from (used in) operating activities”, is now included in “Cash generated from (used in) financing activities”, reflecting a more relevant presentation of finance costs payments.

(2)

Except for the annual reporting period, cash generated from (used in) operating activities for the trailing twelve months is a supplementary financial measure. Refer to Section 14C of the Q3 2022 MD&A.

(3)

For comparative purposes, information for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 was restated due to a change in presentation for certain emission credits and allowances held for trading, which were formerly included in “Risk management and other” and are now included in “Inventories”.

(4)

Prior to March 31, 2021, distributable cash flow was referred to as adjusted distributable cash flow. The previous measure was consolidated to a single primary measure representing Parkland’s ability to generate cash flows.

Supplementary Financial Measures

Parkland uses a number of supplementary financial measures, including dividends per share, TTM dividends and TTM cash generated from (used in) operating activities, to evaluate the success of our strategic objectives and to set variable compensation targets for employees. These measures may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers, as other issuers may calculate these metrics differently. See Section 14 of the Q3 2022 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding supplementary financial measures used by Parkland.

Capital Management Measures

Parkland’s primary capital management measure is the Leverage Ratio, which is used internally by key management personnel to monitor Parkland’s overall financial strength, capital structure flexibility, and ability to service debt and meet current and future commitments. The Leverage Ratio is calculated as a ratio of Leverage Debt to Leverage EBITDA (each as defined in the Q3 2022 Consolidated Financial Statements) and does not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS. It is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. See Section 14 of the Q3 2022 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding capital management measures used by Parkland.

Total of Segments Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is a total of segments measure used by the chief operating decision maker to make decisions about resource allocation to the segment and to assess its performance. Adjusted EBITDA for the Canada and Refining segments and Total Renewable Adjusted EBITDA (being a summation of Canada and Refining segment renewable subsegments) are also total of segments measures. In accordance with IFRS, adjustments and eliminations made in preparing an entity’s financial statements and allocations of revenue, expenses, and gains or losses shall be included in determining reported segment profit or loss only if they are included in the measure of the segment’s profit or loss that is used by the chief operating decision maker. As such, Parkland’s Adjusted EBITDA is unlikely to be comparable to similarly named measures presented by other issuers, who may calculate these measures differently. Parkland views Adjusted EBITDA as the key measure for the underlying core operating performance of business segment activities at an operational level. Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to set targets for Parkland (including annual guidance and variable compensation targets) and is used to determine Parkland’s ability to service debt, finance capital expenditures and provide for dividend payments to shareholders. See Section 14 of the Q3 2022 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding total of segments measures used by Parkland. Refer to the table below for the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net earnings (loss) for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and September 30, 2021.

CALGARY, AB, May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX: PKI), a leading international food and convenience store operator, independent supplier and marketer of fuel and petroleum products and leader in renewable energy, announced today its financial and operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2022. Highlights include:

Q1 2022 Highlights

  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Parkland (”Adjusted EBITDA”)1 of $387 million, up 23 percent year-over-year underpinned by the impact of acquisitions, consistent operating performance, continued organic growth in our marketing business, strong supply performance and robust margins.
  • Net earnings attributable to Parkland (”net earnings”) of $55 million, or $0.36 per share, basic, an increase of 90 percent from prior year and Adjusted earnings attributable to Parkland (”Adjusted earnings”)1 of $136 million, or $0.88 per share, basic, up approximately 48 percent year-over-year.
  • Trailing twelve months (”TTM”) distributable cash flow per share1 of $4.73, an increase of approximately 9 percent relative to Q1 2021.
  • Cash used in operating activities of $48 million, compared to cash generated from operating activities of $264 million, down $312 million year-over-year, driven by a working capital outlay of $436 million related to increasing commodity prices.
  • Continued to strengthen our customer proposition with the close of the previously announced acquisitions of Crevier and M&M Food Market.
  • Fuel volumes of approximately 7 billion liters, up over 26 percent from Q1 2021, reflecting the impact of acquisitions, growing customer demand for essential fuels and ongoing economic recovery from COVID.
  • Continued to expand our ON the RUN convenience brand with 37 additional locations and attracted 300,000 new members to our JOURNIE™ Rewards loyalty program.
  • Generated $25 million of Total Renewable Adjusted EBITDA1 and accomplished a world first by co-processing tall oil to create renewable fuels at the Burnaby refinery. In addition to demonstrating our leading position in co-processing, tall oil further diversifies our bio-feedstock supply chain.

“Our first quarter results demonstrate the strength of our strategy,” said Bob Espey President and Chief Executive Officer. “We grew our marketing business by integrating recent acquisitions and leveraging our supply advantage.”

“We continue to prioritize organic growth initiatives, integrate and capture synergies from recent acquisitions and are confident we can achieve the high end of our 2022 Adjusted EBITDA guidance,” added Espey. “I am proud of the Parkland team who are dedicated to powering our customers’ journeys and energizing the communities we serve.”

Q1 2022 Segment Highlights

To align with strategic initiatives and provide greater visibility into our operations, we have made several enhancements to our reporting disclosures. To align with USA and International segment reporting, the Canada segment now includes its respective supply, trading and wholesale activities. The Burnaby refinery results can be found in a new Refining segment. In addition, Total Renewable Adjusted EBITDA and the results of our Retail and Commercial lines of business are separately disclosed. For comparative purposes, prior period information has been restated and reclassified to conform to the presentation used in the current period.

  • Canada delivered Adjusted EBITDA2 of $191 million, up 28 percent, from Q1 2021 ($149 million). Performance was underpinned by strong margins, increasing fuel volumes, the close of our previously announced acquisitions (Crevier and M&M Food Market), and organic growth. Food and Company C-Store Same Store Sales Growth2 (”SSSG”) (excluding cigarettes) was 1.7 percent. We opened 37 new ON the RUN stores and welcomed an additional 300,000 customers to our JOURNIE™ Rewards loyalty program, bringing total members to 3.2 million.
  • International delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $82 million, up 22 percent, from Q1 2021 ($67 million). Performance was underpinned by fuel volume growth primarily driven by a recovery in tourism (aviation) and wholesale, contribution from our previously announced acquisition in St. Maarten, and supply synergies from our Isla joint venture in Dominican Republic.
  • USA delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $47 million, up 147 percent, from Q1 2021 ($19 million). Performance was underpinned by prior year acquisitions and related synergies, strong margins, higher marine fuel demand and new cruise ship contracts. Margin improvements helped mitigate the impact of inflation.
  • Refining delivered Adjusted EBITDA2 of $89 million, down 8 percent, from Q1 2021 ($97 million). Utilization3 of 92.2 percent (Q1 2021 – 91.0 percent) and a stronger margin was offset by higher operating costs.

Sustainability Leadership

Sustainability is deeply embedded across our business. Our ‘Drive to Zero’ strategy includes our goals to achieve zero safety incidents, zero spills, zero tolerance for racism and discrimination, zero tolerance for corruption, bribery, and unethical behaviour and to help our governments achieve their goal of net-zero emissions by 2050. Notable accomplishments from the first quarter include:

  • Improving our TTM lost time injury frequency rate4 to 0.14 (Q1 2021 – 0.25) and TTM total recordable injury frequency rate4 to 1.19 (Q1 2021 – 1.22), reflecting our continued focus on safety.
  • Delivering a world first, by co-processing tall oil in a fluid catalytic cracker without pretreatment to produce renewable fuels with approximately one eighth of the carbon intensity of regular fuels (tall oil is a waste product from the pulp and paper industry).
  • Co-processing over 20 million litres of bio-feedstocks, which has the equivalent impact of taking over 16,000 cars off the road.
  • Generating $25 million of Total Renewable Adjusted EBITDA.

Certain amounts within sales and operating revenue, cost of purchases, and marketing, general and administrative were restated and reclassified to conform to the presentation used in the current period. For comparative purposes, information for the three-months ended March 31, 2021 was restated due to a change in segment presentation.

These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this news release. Parkland does not undertake any obligations to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements except as required by securities law. Actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of numerous risks, assumptions and uncertainties including, but not limited to, general economic, market and business conditions, including the duration and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic; Parkland’s ability to execute its business strategies, including without limitation, Parkland’s ability to consistently identify accretive acquisition targets and successfully integrate them, successfully implement organic growth initiatives and to finance such acquisitions and initiatives on reasonable terms; Parkland’s ability to grow its supply advantage by leveraging its scale and infrastructure; Parkland’s ability to achieve its goals and targets relating to its “Drive to Zero” sustainability; competitive action by other companies; refining and marketing margins; the ability of suppliers to meet commitments; actions by governmental authorities and other regulators including but not limited to increases in taxes or restricted access to markets; changes and developments in environmental and other regulations; and other factors, many of which are beyond the control of Parkland.

The forward-looking statements contained in this news release are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.

Non-Financial Measures

Parkland uses a number of non-financial measures, including composite utilization, TTM lost time injury frequency rate and TTM total recordable injury frequency rate, in measuring the success of our strategic objectives and to set variable compensation targets for employees. These non-financial measures are not accounting measures, do not have comparable IFRS measures, and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers, as other issuers may calculate these metrics differently. See Section 14 of the Q1 2022 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details on the non-financial measures used by Parkland.

Specified Financial Measures

This news release contains total of segments measures, non-GAAP financial measures and ratios and supplementary financial measures (collectively, “specified financial measures”). Parkland’s management uses certain specified financial measures to analyze the operating and financial performance, leverage and liquidity of the business. These specified financial measures do not have any standardized meaning and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The specified financial measures should not be considered in isolation or used in substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. See Section 14 of the Q1 2022 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding specified financial measures used by Parkland.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Ratios

Adjusted earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure and Adjusted earnings per share is a non-GAAP financial ratio included in this news release to assist management, investors and analysts with the analysis of the core operating performance of business activities of Parkland on a consolidated level. These non-GAAP financial measures and ratios do not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures and ratios should not be considered in isolation or used in substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Except as otherwise indicated, these non-GAAP measures and ratios are calculated and disclosed on a consistent basis from period to period. See section 14 of the Q1 2022 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding Parkland’s non-GAAP financial measures and ratios. See below for the reconciliation of Adjusted earnings (loss) to net earnings (loss) and calculation of Adjusted earnings (loss) per share for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021.

Refer to Note 12 of the Q1 2022 Consolidated Financial Statements.

(2)

Other Adjusting Items for the three months ended March 31, 2022 include the share of depreciation and income taxes for the Isla joint venture of $4 million (2021 – nil).

(3)

The tax normalization adjustment was applied to net earnings (loss) adjusting items that were considered temporary differences, such as gains and losses on asset disposals, acquisition, integration and other costs, unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses, gains and losses on risk management and other, changes in fair value of redemption options, changes in estimates of environmental provisions, and debt modifications. The tax impact was estimated using the effective tax rates applicable to jurisdictions where the related items occur.

(4)

Weighted average number of common shares are calculated in accordance with Parkland’s accounting policy contained in Note 2 of the Annual Consolidated Financial Statements.

TTM distributable cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and TTM distributable cash flow per share is a non-GAAP ratio. TTM distributable cash flow is a cash metric that adjusts for the impact of seasonality in Parkland’s business by removing non-cash working capital items and excludes the effect of items that are not considered representative of Parkland’s ability to generate cash flows. Such items include: (i) acquisition, integration, and other costs; (ii) turnaround maintenance capital expenditures, and; (iii) interest on leases and long-term debt, and principal payments on leases attributable to non-controlling interests. Distributable cash flow does not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Parkland uses this non-GAAP financial measure to monitor normalized cash flows of the business by eliminating the impact of Parkland’s working capital fluctuations and expenditures used in acquisition, integration and other activities, which can vary significantly from quarter-to-quarter.
