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.

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

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

Q1 2022 Segment Highlights

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

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

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.

Except as otherwise indicated, these non-GAAP measures and ratios are calculated and disclosed on a consistent basis from period to period.

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.

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.

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.

Parkland delivers strong 2021 results led by record marketing performance; increases dividend and 2022 Guidance

CALGARY, AB, March 3, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX:PKI), a leading food and convenience store operator, independent supplier and marketer of fuel and petroleum products and leader in renewable energy, announced today its financial and operating results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2021, increased its 2022 Guidance and announced it is raising its annual dividend for the tenth consecutive year. Highlights include:

Q4 2021 Highlights

  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Parkland (”Adjusted EBITDA”)1 of $260 million reflects record performance in all our marketing segments. We estimate an approximately $35 million negative impact on Adjusted EBITDA from the British Columbia floods, which required the shutdown of the Transmountain Pipeline and led to a pause in refinery processing operations.2
  • Net earnings attributable to Parkland (”net earnings”) of $23 million, or $0.15 per share, basic, a decrease of 57 percent from prior year, and Adjusted earnings attributable to Parkland (”Adjusted earnings”)3 of $55 million, or $0.36 per share, basic, up approximately 28 percent year-over-year.4

2021 Highlights

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $1.260 billion, up over 30 percent from prior year.
  • Net earnings of $97 million, or $0.64 per share, basic, up approximately 20 percent from 2020 and Adjusted earnings of $372 million, up 200 percent from 2020.
  • Trailing twelve months distributable cash flow per share3 of $4.34, up 35 percent from 2020.
  • Cash flow from operating activities of $904 million fully funded capital expenditures, dividend payments, and interest on leases and long-term debt.
  • Undertook a record number of acquisitions for attractive values with significant synergy potential; accelerating delivery of our strategy and building on our track record of prudent acquisitions.
  • Maintained strong liquidity position, with cash and cash equivalents of $284 million and unused credit facilities of $1,270 billion as at December 31, 2021. Continued to enhance financial strength by taking advantage of favourable conditions to refinance senior notes. Parkland has no debt maturities until 2026.
  • Delivered 12 percent year-over-year growth in our Canada, USA and International marketing segments.
  • Fuel and petroleum volume of 24 billion litres, up over 10 percent from 2020, reflecting the impact of acquisitions, resilient customer demand and ongoing recovery from COVID.
  • Continued to expand our ON the RUN convenience brand with 107 additional locations and grow the reach of our JOURNIE™ rewards program to 1,200 locations. Over the past year, we have almost doubled JOURNIE™ membership, from 1.5 million active members to over 2.9 million.

2022 Outlook

  • Increased 2022 Adjusted EBITDA guidance to $1.5 billion +/- 5 percent, reflecting our execution confidence and the expected close of previously announced acquisitions.
  • Increased the annual dividend by 5.3 percent to $1.300 per share and starting in the second quarter will switch to a quarterly payment schedule.

“I want to thank the Parkland team for an incredible year,” said Bob Espey President and Chief Executive Officer. “While the BC floods prevented us delivering record Adjusted EBITDA, I am proud of the way we supported impacted communities. We accelerated all aspects of our strategy in 2021 and announced a record number of acquisitions. We expanded our retail, food and loyalty business, and made significant progress on our decarbonization strategy by doubling our renewable fuel production, growing our voluntary carbon offset business and advancing our electric vehicle charging network.”

“Parkland is poised for continued growth,” added Espey. “We enter 2022 ahead of our plan to deliver $2 billion of run-rate Adjusted EBITDA by the end of 2025. We are focused on integrating and capturing synergies from the businesses we acquired, driving returns and deleveraging. Our base business and recent acquisitions are on track to deliver strong cash flow, giving us confidence to increase our dividend. Our opportunities for growth and value creation have never been greater.”

Q4 2021 Segment Highlights

  • Canada delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $117 million, up almost 5 percent, from $112 million in Q4 2020. Performance was underpinned by robust fuel and convenience margins, company C-store same-store sales growth5 (”SSSG”) of 4.7 percent (excluding cigarettes) and ongoing economic recovery. We continued to expand our ON the RUN convenience brand and successfully extended JOURNIETM Rewards across our FasGas network, and now have 2.9 million active members.
  • International delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $78 million, up over 8 percent, from $72 million in Q4 2020. Performance was underpinned by a strong base and resource business, with growing wholesale volumes. We continue to see signs of recovery in some of the larger tourism markets with others expected to reopen in 2022.
  • USA delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $41 million, up over 400 percent, from $8 million in Q4 2020. Performance was underpinned by the impact of acquisitions, synergy capture and continued organic growth initiatives. We are seeing a gradual return in cruise ship sailings in Florida and our teams continued to offset the impact of inflation.
  • Supply delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $58 million, down 28 percent, from $81 million in Q4 2020. Performance was impacted by the BC floods, which required the shutdown of the Transmountain Pipeline and led to a pause in refinery processing operations. We estimate an approximately $35 million negative impact on Adjusted EBITDA from this event. During the quarter, we also completed a minor planned maintenance turnaround. In 2021, we co-processed a record 86 million litres of bio-feedstocks which has the equivalent environmental effect of taking over 70,000 cars off the road. Full-year composite utilization6 was 84 percent driven by safe and consistent operational performance.

Parkland is a Sustainability Leader: Awarded AA ESG Rating from MSCI

Sustainability is deeply embedded across our business and through 2021, we continued to strengthen our focus on this important area. In recognition of our commitment to sustainability, we received an AA ESG Rating from Morgan Stanley Capital International (”MSCI”). This places us in the top 17 percent of index constituents. Key highlights and environmental accomplishments include:

  • Published our Sustainability Report which reflects our goal to achieve zero safety incidents, zero spills, zero tolerance for racism and discrimination, zero tolerance for corruption, bribery, and unethical behaviour and to help our governments achieve their goal of net-zero emissions by 2050. Grounded in meaningful and measurable targets, including ambitious greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, our report formalizes our enterprise-wide sustainability strategy and can be viewed by clicking this link: Parkland – Drive to Zero.
  • Extended our track record of renewable fuel leadership at the Burnaby Refinery, co-processing a record 86 million litres of bio-feedstocks. These fuels play a crucial role helping our commercial customers decarbonize their energy use. In 2021 this had the equivalent effect of taking over 70,000 cars off the road. We have more than doubled our renewable fuel production every year since 2019.
  • Committed to build British Columbia’s largest network (by site count) of Electric Vehicle (”EV”) ultra-fast chargers. Strategically located on key arterial routes between Vancouver Island and Calgary, this network will offer customers unrivalled amenity in the form of high-speed charging, premium ON the RUN convenience stores and food choices. This network is expected to open during the summer of 2022.
  • Continued to grow our carbon offset and renewable business, which plays an integral role in our sustainability strategy and in helping our customers meet their environmental commitments. With global demand for voluntary offsets increasing, we delivered significant growth and transacted carbon offset credits across various North American registries.
  • Became a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, a voluntary initiative to support the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Updated 2022 Guidance: Adjusted EBITDA of $1.5 billion

Reflecting confidence in our execution capability and continued growth trajectory, as well as the expected close of previously announced acquisitions, we are increasing our Adjusted EBITDA guidance previously disclosed in Parkland’s November 16, 2021 news release. Highlights include:

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $1.5 billion +/- 5 percent. This is up approximately 20 percent from 2021 results.
  • Capital expenditures (attributable to Parkland) are expected to be at the lower end of between $475 million and $575 million, comprising:
    • Growth capital expenditures7 (attributable to Parkland) of between $250 million and $300 million.
    • Maintenance capital expenditures7 (attributable to Parkland) of between $225 million and $275 million.

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 ambition to generate run-rate Adjusted EBITDA of $2 billion by 2025 and the key strategic pillars underpinning such ambition; Parkland’s 2022 guidance, including Adjusted EBITDA, growth and maintenance capital expenditure guidance; expected future dividend amounts, timing and frequency; Parkland’s ESG goals and targets, including the expected expansion of our renewables and carbon offset business; expected benefits and synergies to be derived from acquisitions, potential future acquisition opportunities, expected timing of the opening of Parkland’s electric vehicle ultra-fast charging network in British Columbia; and Parkland’s ability to advance its growth agenda.

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; Parkland’s ability to execute its business strategies, including without limitation, Parkland’s ability to consistently identify accretive acquisition targets and successfully integrate them, successfully implement organic growth initiatives and to finance such acquisitions and initiatives on reasonable terms; Parkland’s ability to grow its supply advantage by leveraging its scale and infrastructure; Parkland’s ability to achieve its ESG targets; 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 Annual Information Form dated March 5, 2021, and “Forward-Looking Information” and “Risk Factors” included in the Q4 2021 MD&A dated March 3, 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.

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 15 of the Q4 2021 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding specified 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. 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. Please refer to the table below for the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net earnings (loss) for the three month and twelve month periods ending December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2021.

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 operating and financial performance and liquidity of Parkland. 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 15 of the Q4 2021 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details regarding Parkland’s non-GAAP financial measures and ratios.

Other (gains) and losses for the three months ended December 31, 2021, include the following: (i) $25 million gain (2020 – $34 million loss) due to the change in redemption value of Sol Put Option; (ii) $34 million loss (2020 – $72 million gain) due to the change in fair value of redemption options; (iii) $11 million loss (2020 – $9 million loss) in Other items. Other (gains) and losses for the year ended December 31, 2021, include the following: (i) $87 million loss (2020 – $23 million loss) due to change in redemption value of Sol Put Option; (ii) $86 million loss (2020 – $34 million gain) due to change in fair value of redemption options; (iii) $30 million loss (2020 – $7 million loss) in Other items. Refer to Note 22 of the Annual Consolidated Financial Statements.

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; (iii) the change in certain risk management and other instruments, and (iv) interest on leases and long-term debt, and principal payments on leases attributable to non-controlling interests. 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. Please refer to the table below for the reconciliation of distributable cash flow to cash generated from (used in) operating activities and a calculation of distributable cash flow per share for the trailing twelve month periods ending December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2021.

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 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. 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. Please see below for a reconciliation of convenience store revenue of the Canada segment with the C-Store same store sales (”SSS”) and calculation of the Company C-Store SSSG.

Supplementary Financial Measures

Parkland uses a number of supplementary financial measures, including maintenance capital expenditures and growth capital expenditures, to evaluate the success of our strategic objectives and to set variable compensation targets for employees and which are included in this news release. 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 2021 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details on the supplementary financial measures used by Parkland.

Non-Financial Measures

In addition to specified financial measures, Parkland uses a number of non-financial measures, including composite utilization, 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 15 of the Q4 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference into this news release, for further details on the non-financial measures used by Parkland.

Parkland To Build The ‘Electric Charging Destination of the Future’

CALGARY, AB, Feb. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX: PKI), a leading customer focused convenience retail and fuel marketing business, announced today that it plans to build the ‘Electric Charging Destination of the Future’ and set a new standard for electric vehicle (”EV”) charging and customer experience. Parkland has developed its initial architectural concept by sponsoring an international design competition operated by Electric Autonomy Canada, a leading news platform focused on electric and autonomous vehicle technologies.

“Consistent with our energy transition and convenience destination strategy, our goal in sponsoring this competition was to engage talented architects and designers from around the world, invite them to put the needs of EV customers first, and entirely reimagine their experience,” said Darren Smart, SVP Energy Transition and Corporate Development. “We are committed to bringing the winning concept to life as part of our ambitious EV charging strategy in British Columbia and believe the concept could be extended to our other geographies when we see opportunity to meet emerging customer demand.”

A sustainably built electric charging destination of the future
The winning design was created by James Silvester, an award-winning Scotland-based architect with extensive global experience designing sustainable architecture. Named, ‘More with Less’, the design creates a relaxing environment, where electric vehicle drivers can take a breath, and recharge not just their vehicles, but themselves.

“The environmentally friendly materials and modular nature of the ‘More with Less’ concept, provides tremendous versatility,” added Smart. “It can be scaled large or small, accommodate the amenities we know EV customers value while they charge, such as our ON the RUN convenience stores and high-quality dining. It also creates a series of outdoor spaces. The result is a destination that customers can enjoy and an environment where nature is integral to the structure. We look forward to working with James to further hone the design and identify a suitable location where we can bring it to life and create a world-class experience for EV drivers.”

Parkland’s continued commitment to energy transition and renewables leadership
Bringing the winning design to life is a natural extension of our energy transition and renewables activities. This includes previously announced plans to open British Columbia’s largest network (by site count) of ultra-fast electric vehicle chargers. These are co-located with ON the RUN branded convenience stores and Triple O’s restaurants on high-traffic routes through British Columbia and into Calgary. We expect this network will be complete in the second half of 2022. In addition, underpinned by our commitment to a lower carbon future, we continue to extend our leading co-processing and renewable fuel manufacturing capabilities at our Burnaby Refinery.

Parkland Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

CALGARY, AB, Nov. 29, 2021 /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”) during the 12-month period commencing December 1, 2021 and ending November 30, 2022.

Parkland Logo

On November 25, 2021, Parkland had 152,457,236 common shares issued and outstanding. Under the NCIB, a maximum of 15,091,885 common shares (representing 10% of the public float of common shares as of November 25, 2021) may be repurchased by Parkland in open market transactions on the TSX during the 12-month period commencing December 1, 2021 and ending November 30, 2022.

“In the right conditions, and in addition to our regular monthly dividend, the NCIB will provide optionality to return additional capital to shareholders,” said Bob Espey, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We will continue to exercise strict capital discipline, and the decision to repurchase Parkland shares will be evaluated against our other investment opportunities and leverage guidelines. We are focused on creating long-term shareholder value, and only our most accretive opportunities will secure capital.”

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

The common shares will be purchased through the facilities of the TSX and/or alternative trading systems in Canada at the prevailing market price at the time of purchase. All common shares purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled. In accordance with the rules of the TSX, any daily repurchases (other than pursuant to a block purchase exception) on the TSX under the NCIB are limited to a maximum of 94,920 common shares, which represents 25% of the average daily trading volume on the TSX of 379,683 for the six months ended October 31, 2021. The actual number of common shares that may be purchased under the NCIB and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by Parkland. There can be no assurance as to the precise number of common 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 initiates steps to pause refinery processing operations in response to ongoing Trans Mountain Pipeline shut down

CALGARY, AB, Nov. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX: PKI), announced today, that in response to the ongoing crisis in British Columbia that resulted in the shutdown of the Trans Mountain Pipeline on November 14, it has initiated steps to pause refinery processing operations at the Burnaby Refinery (”the refinery”) and maintain the refinery in ready-mode. The Trans Mountain Pipeline is the primary source of crude oil feedstock to the refinery.

“Due to a lack of crude oil supply from the Trans Mountain Pipeline, we are maintaining the refinery in ready-mode,” said Ryan Krogmeier, SVP Supply, Trading and Refining. “Ready-mode, is a state of operational readiness which positions us to recommence processing once sufficient crude oil feedstocks become available.”

While the refinery’s processing operations are being paused, its blending, shipping, terminal, and rack activities remain operational. This enables available fuels to be offloaded from ships and rail directly into the refinery, from where they can be stored and distributed across the lower mainland and Vancouver Island.

“We are focused on serving our customers and communities,” added Krogmeier. “Our teams are working tirelessly to source and import available refined fuels. By leveraging our supply capabilities and infrastructure at the refinery, we are confident in our ability to keep our retail and commercial locations supplied with fuel.”

Parkland advances U.S. growth strategy with acquisition of Sevier Valley Oil Company, Inc.

CaribPR Wire, CALGARY, Alberta, Nov. 10, 2020: Parkland Corporation (“Parkland”, “we”, “our”, or “the Company”) (TSX:PKI) is pleased to announce that through its wholly owned U.S. subsidiaries (collectively, “Parkland USA”), it has entered into an agreement to acquire all the assets of Sevier Valley Oil Company, Inc. and its related companies (collectively, “SVO”).

Based in Richfield, Utah, SVO is a well-established retail and commercial fuel business with annual fuel and petroleum product volume of approximately 350 million litres. SVO’s primary operations are in Southwestern Utah along with a presence in Northern Utah and Colorado. The acquisition of SVO adds seven company retail locations and over 20 retail dealers in addition to robust diesel and lubricant distribution capabilities.

“We continue to expand our U.S. footprint and execute on our growth strategy,” said Doug Haugh, President of Parkland USA. “This acquisition meaningfully expands our retail presence in rapidly growing Southern Utah and presents a fantastic opportunity to leverage our North American On the Run convenience store brand, enhance our customer proposition and drive incremental value.”

“The acquisition strongly complements our existing Rockies Regional Operating Center and positions us for further organic and acquisition growth in neighboring Nevada and Arizona,” added Haugh. “We are delighted to welcome Garrett Ekker and the SVO team to Parkland and look forward to the continued growth of our USA business.”

This acquisition is at valuation metrics consistent with Parkland’s prior U.S. transactions and will be funded out of existing credit facility capacity. SVO’s annual fuel and petroleum product volume of approximately 350 million litres is based on the trailing-twelve-month period ending July 2020 and contains a mix of retail, wholesale and commercial volume consistent with our existing USA segment.

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Parkland positioned to expand ‘On the Run’ across the U.S., creating a unified North American convenience store brand

CaribPR Wire, CALGARY, Alberta, Sept. 10, 2020: Parkland Corporation (”Parkland”, “we”, the “Company”, or “our”) (TSX:PKI) announced it has acquired the license for the exclusive use of the On the Run trademark in the majority of U.S. states. The acquisition positions Parkland to expand On the Run across the U.S. to create a unified, North American convenience store brand.

“We are excited to expand the On the Run convenience store brand across the U.S. and harness the advantages of our scale,” said Ian White, Senior Vice President, Strategic Marketing & Innovation at Parkland. “As we continue to advance our ambitious growth strategy, the time is right to create a unified, North American retail and convenience store brand. On the Run is an established retail brand that we can quickly and efficiently scale by leveraging the capabilities we have established in the Canadian market.”

The strategic rationale for this acquisition includes:

  • Expanding On the Run across the U.S. to create a unified North American convenience brand;
  • Capturing efficiencies through common brand collateral, product assortments, private label product ranges and operational continuity;
  • Opportunity to rebrand our existing U.S. convenience stores and efficiently incorporate the On the Run convenience brand to newly developed sites;
  • Greater optionality and a strong convenience store foundation for future U.S. M&A activities;
  • Support the organic growth of our dealer business by providing an enhanced, bundled offer that combines a leading convenience store brand with multiple forecourt fuel brands.

“The On the Run retail brand provides a solid platform for our continued U.S. growth,” added Doug Haugh, President, Parkland USA. “Building on our existing On the Run brand image, product assortments and private label goods in Canada, we look forward to meeting the convenience needs of our U.S. customers under the On the Run banner. Our U.S. customers will enjoy enhanced interior and exterior rebranding elements, larger and brighter canopies and a variety of new product offerings, all backed by their same local and friendly service teams.”

Through this acquisition, Parkland has acquired, for a one-time fee, the perpetual license for the exclusive use of the On the Run trademark in the majority of U.S. states. The deal includes an option to purchase the On the Run U.S. trademark together with the license owner’s On the Run franchise business.
