Parkland Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

CALGARY, AB, Nov. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, “our”, or the “Company”) (TSX: PKI) announced today that the Toronto Stock Exchange (”TSX”) has accepted the Company’s notice of intention to implement a normal course issuer bid (the “NCIB”).

Under the NCIB, the Company may purchase for cancellation a maximum of 13,992,412 common shares of the Company (the “Shares”), representing 10% of the public float (as defined by the TSX) as of November 21, 2022. On November 21, 2022, Parkland had 175,942,203 Shares issued and outstanding. The NCIB will commence on December 1, 2022 and will terminate upon the earliest of (i) November 30, 2023, (ii) the Company purchasing the maximum of 13,992,412 Shares, and (iii) the Company terminating the NCIB.

The NCIB is intended to augment Parkland’s ongoing return of capital to shareholders through dividends. Parkland believes that the market price of the Shares may not, from time to time, accurately reflect their underlying value. Accordingly, purchasing the Shares for cancellation under the NCIB may represent an attractive investment opportunity to enhance shareholder value.

Purchases under the NCIB will be made through the facilities of the TSX or alternative trading systems in Canada at the prevailing market price at the time of purchase. In accordance with the rules of the TSX, any daily repurchases (other than pursuant to a block purchase exception as defined by the TSX) under the NCIB will be limited to a maximum of 103,960 Shares, which represents 25% of the average daily trading volume on the TSX of 415,841 for the six months ended October 31, 2022.

In connection with the NCIB, the Company has entered into an automatic share purchase plan (the “ASPP”) with its designated broker to allow for the purchase of Shares during certain pre-determined blackout periods during which the Company would ordinarily not be permitted to purchase Shares. Purchases under the ASPP will be determined by the designated broker in its sole discretion based on purchasing parameters set by Parkland in accordance with the rules of the TSX, applicable securities laws and the terms of the ASPP. The ASPP has been pre-cleared by the TSX and will become effective December 1, 2022, concurrently with the commencement of the NCIB. Outside of blackout periods, Shares may be purchased under the NCIB based on management’s discretion, in compliance with the rules of the TSX and applicable securities laws. All purchases made under the ASPP will be included in computing the number of Shares purchased under the NCIB.

The NCIB continues the Company’s existing NCIB (the “Existing NCIB”). Pursuant to the Existing NCIB, the Company has approval from the TSX to repurchase up to 15,091,855 Shares from December 1, 2021 to November 30, 2022. Under the Existing NCIB, the Company has purchased 783,055 Shares on the open market at a weighted average purchase price of $25.5410 per Share.

There can be no assurance as to the precise number of Shares that will be purchased under the NCIB, if any. Parkland may discontinue purchases under the NCIB at any time, subject to compliance with applicable regulatory requirements.

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.

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 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. See also the risks and uncertainties described in “Forward-Looking Information” and “Risk Factors” included in Parkland’s Revised Annual Information Form dated March 17, 2022, and “Forward-Looking Information” and “Risk Factors” included in the Q3 2022 MD&A dated November 2, 2022, 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, 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.

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.

Parkland provides Q3 2022 business update and completes consolidation of its International Segment

CALGARY, Canada, Oct. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX: PKI), today provided a third quarter business update. Driven by the macroeconomic environment and volatile product prices, third quarter results will be below our expectations. We are confident in our fourth quarter outlook and expect to deliver 2022 Adjusted EBITDA within our guidance range of between $1.6 billion and $1.7 billion.

Q3 2022 Business Update

We expect to deliver Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Parkland (”Expected Adjusted EBITDA”) of approximately $325 million in the third quarter. Primary drivers include:

  • USA: Rapidly declining market prices resulted in non-recurring wholesale inventory and risk management losses of approximately $65 million. These more than offset expected contributions from our retail and commercial businesses.
  • Refining: Composite utilization of approximately 95 percent was dampened by higher operating, natural gas, transportation and compliance costs, as well as higher trailing crude prices in a declining market. This temporarily lowered our capture of the record refining crack spreads to approximately 55 percent.
  • Canada: Falling product prices lowered fuel unit margins compared to the prior quarter. This partially offset steady retail fuel demand and strong non-fuel margins.
Confidence in Q4 Outlook

We remain confident in our outlook for the fourth quarter. In addition to significantly reducing third-party wholesale operations in the US, we anticipate:

  • Returning to a higher capture of refining crack spreads that is more consistent with historical rates.
  • A strong start to the tourist season in our Florida and International markets.
  • Traditionally high seasonal heating demand for our Canadian commercial business.

Parkland has completed its previously announced acquisitions and remains focused on integration, capturing synergies and reducing its leverage ratio.

Q3 2022 Business Update Conference Call and Webcast Details

Parkland will host a conference call and webcast on Wednesday, October 19, at 7:00 a.m. MDT (9:00 a.m. EDT) to discuss its third quarter business update. To listen to the live conference call and webcast, please use the following link: https://app.webinar.net/J2e0oMyorAM

The factors and assumptions which contribute to Parkland’s assessment of the increased 2022 Adjusted EBITDA Guidance are consistent with existing Parkland disclosures and such guidance is subject to risks and uncertainties inherent in Parkland’s business. Readers are directed to the “Risk Factors” section in the Q2 2022 MD&A and Parkland’s Revised Annual Information Form dated March 17, 2022 for a description of such factors, assumptions, risks and uncertainties. All other elements of Parkland’s previous guidance remain unchanged.

Sustainability Leadership

Sustainability is deeply embedded across our business. Notable accomplishments from the second quarter, and year-to-date, include:

  • Reflecting our focus on safety, we more than halved our TTM lost time injury frequency rate2 to 0.12 (Q2 2021: 0.26) and lowered our TTM total recordable injury frequency rate2 to 1.06 (Q2 2021: 1.19).
  • Co-processed over 30 million litres of bio-feedstocks during Q2 2022, and 50 million litres year-to-date. This has the equivalent environmental impact of taking over 24,000 and 40,000 cars off the road, respectively.
  • Announced we are advancing our renewable fuel project, to be over 40 percent funded by the Government of British Columbia (”BC”), to expand our co-processing activity and build BC’s largest renewable diesel complex at our Burnaby Refinery. A Final Investment Decision is expected in the second half of 2023. Should this project advance, the renewable fuels produced will equate to the permanent removal of 700,000, or 25 percent of the passenger vehicles on BC’s roads.
  • Generated $18 million of Total Renewable Adjusted EBITDA1 in Q2 2022.
  • Subsequent to the quarter (July 12, 2022), we published our 2021 Sustainability Report. In addition to highlighting our accomplishments, the timing of this report sets a new annual cadence for publishing future sustainability reports which more closely aligns with our annual reporting calendar.

The supply and trading business in the United States, formerly presented in the Supply segment (now Refining), is now included in the USA segment, reflecting a change in organizational structure in the first six months of 2021.

(2)

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 second quarter of 2021 ended June 30, 2021 was restated due to a change in segment presentation. The supply, wholesale and logistics businesses, formerly presented in the Supply segment, are now included in the Canada segment, reflecting a change in organizational structure in the first six months of 2022. Following the change, the Supply segment has been renamed to “Refining” as it only includes the results of the Burnaby Refinery. This change better aligns Canada results with those of USA and International, which carry supply businesses within their respective divisions.

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 Q2 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 Q2 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 Q2 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 June 30, 2022 and June 30, 2021.

(2)

Other Adjusting Items for the three months ended June 30, 2022 mainly includes the share of depreciation and income taxes for the Isla joint venture of $3 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.

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.

Supplementary financial measure. Refer to Section 14C of the Q2 2022 MD&A.

(3)

Prior to March 31, 2021, distributable cash flow and the dividend payout ratio were referred to as adjusted distributable cash flow and adjusted dividend payout ratio, respectively. The previous measures were 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 Q2 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 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 Q2 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 Q2 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 June 30, 2022 and June 30, 2021.

Parkland releases 2021 Sustainability Report and continues its ‘Drive to Zero’

CALGARY, AB, July 12, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Today, Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX: PKI) released its 2021 Sustainability Report (the “2021 Report”). The 2021 Report highlights our progress on our Drive to Zero, including our goals of achieving zero safety incidents and spills, upholding zero tolerance for racism, discrimination, corruption, bribery, and unethical behaviour, and supporting our governments’ goals of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

2021 was a landmark year for Parkland in which we formalized our enterprise-wide sustainability strategy. This marked a step change in how our organization is approaching key strategic Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues and established baselines and set targets upon which we can continuously improve.

“When we launched our enterprise-wide sustainability strategy last year, we set ambitious and measurable targets to help ensure long-term success,” said Christy Elliott, Chief Sustainability Officer. “Our pillars of People, Environment, Partners, and Responsible Growth are the foundation that allows us to continuously improve and expand our sustainability practices. We are excited to share the work we’ve done over the past several months as we continue to Drive to Zero.”

Key highlights from the 2021 Report include:

  • Continued to strengthen our safety culture and delivered strong performance with 2021 Total Recordable Injury Frequency of 1.14. This represents an almost 55 percent improvement since 2017.
  • In 2021, we co-processed a record 86 million litres of bio-feedstocks at our Burnaby Refinery. This had the equivalent environmental effect of taking over 70,000 cars off the road.

With our 2021 Report, we have set a new annual cadence for publishing future sustainability reports which more closely aligns with our annual reporting calendar.

Parkland announces plans to expand co-processing activities and build British Columbia’s largest renewable diesel complex

The environmental effect of the renewable fuels produced will equate to the permanent removal of approximately 700,000 or 25 per cent of the passenger vehicles on British Columbia’s roads

CALGARY, AB, May 9, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX: PKI) announced plans to increase renewable fuel production at its Burnaby Refinery in British Columbia. This is one of many steps we are taking to advance our commercial decarbonization strategy and provide our customers with a portfolio of low carbon products and services to help them meet their low carbon goals. Today’s announced plans include:

  • building on our track record of innovation and leadership, by expanding our existing co-processing volumes to approximately 5,500 barrels per day, and
  • building a stand-alone renewable diesel complex, within the Burnaby Refinery capable of producing approximately 6,500 barrels per day of renewable diesel.

Renewable fuels produced through these plans will have one eighth of the carbon intensity of conventional fuels. They will reduce related greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 2 megatonnes per year. In addition, Parkland is designing the stand-alone renewable diesel complex to ensure it does not increase emissions from the Burnaby Refinery. Today’s announcement follows collaboration with the Government of British Columbia (”BC”) and supports the Government’s ambition to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

We currently estimate that these projects will require an investment of approximately $600 million, with the majority of capital investment expected to be deployed in 2024 and 2025. Parkland has received BC Government support for over 40 per cent of the project costs in the form of BC Low-Carbon Fuel Standard Compliance Credits.

“I applaud the Government of British Columbia for their vision and support of these innovative projects,” said Bob Espey, President & Chief Executive Officer. “This announcement advances our decarbonization strategy and our commitment to provide customers with low carbon choices which help them meet their environmental goals. Renewable fuels play a critical role in Canada’s climate ambitions by enabling customers to reduce their carbon footprint using their existing vehicle.”

“Parkland’s plans to increase our province’s renewable fuel capabilities support our Clean BC targets,” said The Hon. Bruce Ralston, Minister of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation. “This is a big step forward in our transition to a lower-carbon economy. Harnessing Parkland’s technical expertise and infrastructure to lower the environmental impact of our transportation is something we can be proud of. When combined with BC’s other sources of renewable power and efforts to electrify the passenger vehicle fleet, we continue to set the bar for Canada.”

These plans will have a positive impact on employment in British Columbia and are expected to directly create up to 1,000 high-quality, family sustaining jobs during the construction phase. Following stakeholder consultation, we aim to make a final investment decision in the second half of 2023, with production expected to commence in 2026. We are currently assessing the feasibility and availability of financial support to produce Sustainable Aviation Fuel (”SAF”) as part of these plans, in support of decarbonizing Canada’s aviation sector.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

The supply and trading business in the United States, formerly presented in the Supply segment (now Refining), is now included in the USA segment, reflecting a change in organizational structure in the first three months of 2021.

(2)

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. The supply, wholesale and logistics businesses, formerly presented in the Supply segment, are now included in the Canada segment, reflecting a change in organizational structure in the first three months of 2022. Following the change, the Supply segment has been renamed to “Refining” as it only includes the results of the Burnaby refinery. This change better aligns Canada results with those of USA and International which carry supply businesses within their respective divisions.

Certain amounts in the comparative period were also restated and reclassified to conform to the presentation used in the current period with respect to the allocation of Corporate costs.

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.

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.

Supplementary financial measure. See “Specified Financial Measures” section of this news release.

(3)

Beginning September 30, 2020, interest on leases and long-term debt attributable to NCI is excluded from distributable cash flow.

(4)

Prior to March 31, 2021, distributable cash flow and the dividend payout ratio were referred to as adjusted distributable cash flow and adjusted dividend payout ratio, respectively. The previous measures were consolidated to a single primary measure representing Parkland’s ability to generate cash flows.

Food and Company C-Store SSSG refers to the period-over-period sales growth generated by retail 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, renovations, and 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 under IFRS and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. See below for a reconciliation of convenience store revenue of the Canada segment with the Food and 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 machine, 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 the businesses acquired in 2022 as these will not impact the metric until after the completion of one year of the acquisitions in 2023 as the sales or volume generated in 2022 establish the baseline for these metrics.

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 Q1 2022 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding supplementary financial 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 Q1 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 March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021.
