Ensures Simpson’s representation and continued support for Parkland to maximize shareholder value

Addresses letter received today from activist Engine Capital

CALGARY, AB, March 22, 2023 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX: PKI), today announced it has entered into an agreement dated March 21, 2023 (the “Agreement”) with its largest long-term shareholder Simpson Oil Limited (”Simpson Oil”).   The Agreement furthers the longstanding and successful relationship between Parkland and Simpson Oil. The Agreement provides Simpson Oil, holder of over 19% of the issued and outstanding Parkland shares, the right to designate up to two nominees for election to the Board of Directors of Parkland and includes customary voting support obligations in favour of the Board.

“We appreciate the confidence that Simpson Oil has shown in the Parkland Team and the Company’s strategic direction,” said Jim Pantelidis, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Parkland. “Since Simpson Oil became our largest shareholder, we have continued to advance our strategy and strengthen our growth platform through prudent acquisitions, while increasing our dividend each year. Through this agreement we have secured our largest shareholders’ ongoing support for our Board of Directors and Management. We look forward to our continued relationship with Simpson Oil, and our mutual confidence and commitment in the long-term strategy and future of our business.”

Under the terms of the Agreement, two nominees of Simpson Oil will be nominated for election at the Company’s upcoming annual and special meeting of shareholders. “The Board will be recommending shareholders vote in favour of the nominees’ election at the upcoming shareholder meeting and we look forward to welcoming them to the Board should they be elected,” said Pantelidis. Additional details on the Agreement will be included in the Management Information Circular for the meeting that will be published in the coming days.

As part of the Board’s ongoing refreshment process, David Spencer and John Bechtold will not be standing for re-election at the meeting, a decision which has been planned for some time. “I want to thank David and John for their service to the Board and their tireless work on behalf of shareholders. Their vision, expertise, and guidance have helped us navigate complex challenges and achieve remarkable success,” said Pantelidis.

Parkland Reports Record 2022 Fourth Quarter and Year-End Results

Record fourth quarter and full year Adjusted EBITDA of $455 million and $1.620 billion

Not proceeding with stand-alone renewable diesel complex; committed to co-processing expansion

Annualized dividend increasing to $1.36 per share

CALGARY, AB, March 2, 2023 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX: PKI), today announced its financial and operating results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2022.

Q4 2022 Highlights

  • Record Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Parkland (”Adjusted EBITDA”1) of $455 million, up 75 percent from the fourth quarter of 2021, with each segment increasing compared to the prior year.
  • Cash generated from operating activities of $629 million ($3.65 per share, basic2) up 433 percent from 2021.
  • Net earnings attributable to Parkland (”net earnings”) of $69 million ($0.39 per share, basic) up 214 percent from the fourth quarter of 2021, and Adjusted earnings attributable to Parkland (”Adjusted earnings”3) of $117 million ($0.67 per share, basic) up 113 percent from the fourth quarter of 2021.
  • Repurchased $40 million of Parkland common shares for cancellation.
  • Consolidated 100 percent ownership of our International segment effective October 18, 2022.

2022 Highlights

  • Parkland delivered its best safety performance in 2022, with a total recordable injury frequency rate4 of 1.05, an 8 percent improvement from the prior year.
  • Record Adjusted EBITDA of $1.620 billion, up 29 percent from 2021.
  • Cash generated from operating activities of $1.326 billion ($8.29 per share, basic2) up 47 percent from 2021.
  • Net earnings of $310 million ($1.94 per share, basic) up 220 percent from 2021 and Adjusted earnings of $468 million ($2.93 per share, basic) up 26 percent from 2021.
  • Leverage ratio5 of 3.4x and liquidity available2 of $1.5 billion.
  • Fuel volumes of 27 billion litres, up over 13 percent from 2021.
  • Continued to expand our ON the RUN convenience brand to more than 650 locations and grew our JOURNIE™ rewards loyalty program to 4.1 million members.

“I would like to thank the Parkland team for delivering an excellent year and commend them for their ongoing focus on safely serving our customers,” said Bob Espey, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We advanced our strategy, strengthened our supply advantage, delivered record Adjusted EBITDA, and enhanced shareholder distributions. Our accomplishments demonstrate the strength of our integrated business model and highlight our focus on creating long-term shareholder value. We expect record Adjusted EBITDA in 2023 and are raising our annual dividend for the eleventh consecutive year.”

“Having accelerated acquisitions, we are focused on integration, capturing synergies, deleveraging and enhancing shareholder returns,” added Espey. “While we are not proceeding with the planned renewable diesel complex at our Burnaby Refinery, we will continue to expand our co-processing volumes. We are grateful for the support our renewable diesel project has had from all levels of government, particularly the Province of B.C.”

Q4 2022 Segment Highlights

  • Canada delivered Adjusted EBITDA1 of $197 million, up 29 percent from Q4 2021 ($153 million). Performance was underpinned by strong fuel unit and c-store margins and acquisitions. Food and Company C-Store Same Store Sales Growth (excluding cigarettes)3 was 6 percent (4.7 percent in Q4 2021).
  • International delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $110 million, up 41 percent, from Q4 2021 ($78 million). Performance was underpinned by the consolidation of our International segment and wholesale, aviation and retail volume growth which was driven by tourism recovery.
  • USA delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $46 million, up 15 percent from Q4 2021 ($40 million). Performance was underpinned by incremental contribution from acquisitions and growth in our base business.
  • Refining delivered Adjusted EBITDA1 of $128 million, up 700 percent, from Q4 2021 ($16 million). Performance was underpinned by composite utilization4 of 97.7 percent, safe and consistent operations, and robust margins while the fourth quarter of 2021 was impacted by the shutdown of a major pipeline and turnaround activities at Parkland’s refinery in Burnaby, British Columbia (the “Burnaby Refinery”).

Renewable Diesel Complex Update

After careful consideration, and consistent with Parkland’s commitment to capital discipline, the Company will not proceed with its plans to build a stand-alone renewable diesel complex at the Burnaby Refinery at this time. Several factors have impacted the competitiveness of the renewable diesel complex, including rising project costs, a lack of market certainty around emerging renewable fuels and the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, which advantages U.S. producers.

Parkland remains committed to its low carbon journey and will continue to extend its low carbon fuel innovation and leadership by expanding co-processing at the Burnaby Refinery to 5,500 barrels per day. Co-processing forms part of Parkland’s commercial decarbonization strategy to provide its customers with a portfolio of low carbon products and services to help them meet their low carbon goals.

Enhancing Shareholder Distributions

  • Parkland’s quarterly dividend will increase from $0.325 to $0.340 per common share, effective with the quarterly dividend payable on April 14, 2023 to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 22, 2023. Dividends are expected to be declared and paid on a quarterly basis.
  • To augment the ongoing return of capital to shareholders through dividends, Parkland purchased for cancellation 1.45 million Parkland shares for $40 million under its normal course issuer bid (”NCIB”) program in the fourth quarter. Operating within its disciplined capital allocation framework which prioritizes deleveraging, followed by enhancing shareholder distributions and growth, the Company expects to continue to opportunistically utilize its NCIB program.

Sustainability

Sustainability is deeply embedded across Parkland’s business. Sustainability accomplishments in 2022 are described in the Q4 2022 MD&A. Highlights include:

  • Co-processed over 111 million litres of bio-feedstocks at the Burnaby Refinery in 2022, which has the equivalent impact of taking over 113,000 cars off the road.
  • Awarded the Emerging Clean Technologies Award at the 2022 Global Energy Show in recognition of the Company’s co-processing success at the Burnaby Refinery.
  • Launched one of western Canada’s largest ultra-fast electric vehicle charging networks, with 26 sites currently operational. Parkland received $6.8 million in funding support from National Resources Canada and the Government of British Columbia.
  • Parkland maintains an AA ESG rating from Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI), representing the top 22 percent of the index constituents.

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: Parkland’s business model, objectives and strategies, including its focus on developing the existing business in resilient markets, growing our food, convenience and renewable energy businesses, and helping customers to decarbonize; creating long-term shareholder value; integrating acquired businesses and capturing synergies relating thereto; Parkland’s disciplined capital allocation framework, including prioritizing deleveraging, followed by enhancing shareholder distributions and growth; Parkland’s commitment to its low carbon journey and continuing to extend its low carbon fuel innovation and leadership by expanding co-processing at the Burnaby Refinery to 5,500 barrels per day; future share repurchases under the NCIB program, if any; expectation of delivering record Adjusted EBITDA in 2023; future dividends, if any, including the amount, timing and payment thereof; and building one of western Canada’s largest ultra-fast electric vehicle networks, including the size, completion and funding thereof.

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; 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; 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.

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 15 of the Q4 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 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 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 15 of the Q4 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 15 of the Q4 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 and year ended December 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021.

Other (gains) and losses for the year ended December 31, 2022 include the following: (i) $30 million non-cash valuation gain (2021 – $87 million loss) due to change in redemption value of Sol Put Option; (ii) $67 million non-cash valuation loss (2021 – $86 million loss) due to change in fair value of redemption options; (iii) $14 million gain (2021 – $17 million loss) in Other items. Refer to Note 23 of the Annual Consolidated Financial Statements.

(2) Other Adjusting Items for the three months ended December 31, 2022 and for the year ended December 31, 2022 mainly include: (i) the share of depreciation and income taxes for Isla joint venture of $3 million (2021 – $4 million) and $11 million (2021 – $7 million) respectively.

(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.

(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. See below for a reconciliation of distributable cash flow and TTM distributable cash flow to cash generated from operating activities and TTM cash generated from operating activities.

(1) For comparative purposes, information for certain comparative 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) Supplementary financial measure except for annual reporting periods, See “Supplementary Financial Measures” section of this news release.

(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”.

Food and Company C-Store Same Store Sales Growth (”SSSG”) is a non-GAAP financial ratio and 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 SSSG does not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The change in label of this metric from Company C-Store SSSG to Food and Company C-Store SSSG reflects the addition of the frozen food retail business acquired as part of the M&M Acquisition. 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.

(1) 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.

(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 2022 Acquisitions 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 cash generated from (used in) operating activities, other than annual periods, 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 15 of the Q4 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 2022 Annual 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 15 of the Q4 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 15 of the Q4 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 and year ended December 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021.

Parkland announces 2023 guidance

2023 Adjusted EBITDA guidance1 of $1.7 billion to $1.8 billion

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

  • Canada delivered Adjusted EBITDA1 of $174 million, up 38 percent, from Q2 2021 ($126 million).

Our previously announced acquisition of select Husky branded retail locations is expected to close later this year.
  • International delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $87 million, up 32 percent, from Q2 2021 ($66 million). Performance was underpinned by increased fuel volumes driven by continued recovery in tourism, aviation, and wholesale, acquisitions and synergy capture.

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.
