For full-year 2023, the Company reported net income attributable to CVR Energy stockholders of $769 million, or $7.65 per diluted share, on net sales of $9.2 billion, compared to net income attributable to CVR Energy stockholders for full-year 2022 of $463 million, or $4.60 per diluted share, on net sales of $10.9 billion.

“CVR Energy reported record EBITDA for 2023 driven by high utilization of our assets, improved capture rates, record premium gasoline production, record crude oil gathering volumes and our continued peer-leading distillate yield,” said Dave Lamp, CVR Energy’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased that our results for the year enabled our Board of Directors to authorize regular and special dividends for 2023 totaling $4.50 per share, representing a payout ratio of 64 percent of free cash flow generation for the year.

“CVR Partners also had a strong 2023, achieving a combined ammonia production rate of 100 percent and setting multiple production records at both facilities,” Lamp said. “Nitrogen fertilizer prices remained elevated throughout the year, supporting declared distributions to unitholders for 2023 of $17.80 per common unit.”

Petroleum Segment

Fourth Quarter 2023 Compared to Fourth Quarter 2022

The Petroleum Segment reported fourth quarter 2023 operating income of $144 million, on net sales of $2.0 billion, compared to fourth quarter 2022 operating income of $155 million, on net sales of $2.4 billion.

Fourth quarter 2023 combined total throughput was approximately 223,000 barrels per day (“bpd”), compared to approximately 221,000 bpd of combined total throughput for the fourth quarter 2022.

Refining margin was $307 million, or $15.01 per total throughput barrel, in the fourth quarter 2023, compared to $348 million, or $17.14 per total throughput barrel, during the same period in 2022.

The primary factors contributing to the $41 million decrease in refining margin were:

  • A decrease in the Group 3 2-1-1 crack spread of $13.76 per barrel, driven by a tightening distillate crack spread primarily due to strong utilization of the U.S. refining fleet during the winter and slowing demand trends;

  • Unfavorable inventory valuation impacts of $80 million in the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to unfavorable inventory valuation impacts of $41 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, primarily due to decreased crude oil prices in the current period;

  • Favorable derivative impacts of $78 million from gains on open crack spread swap positions in the current period and wider margins on Canadian crude oil forward purchases and sales compared to the prior period; and

  • A decline in Renewable Fuel Standard (“RFS”) related expense of $134 million, which includes a reduction in RINs revaluation impact of $83 million.

Full-Year 2023 Compared to Full-Year 2022

Full-year 2023 operating income was $982 million, on net sales of $8.3 billion, compared to full-year 2022 operating income of $719 million, on net sales of $9.9 billion.

Combined total throughput for full-year 2023 was approximately 208,000 bpd, compared to approximately 205,000 bpd for full-year 2022.

Refining margin was $1.7 billion, or $21.82 per total throughput barrel, for full-year 2023, compared to $1.4 billion, or $19.09 per total throughput barrel, for full-year 2022.

The primary factors contributing to the $227 million increase in refining margin were:

  • A decline in RFS-related expense of $483 million, which includes a reduction in RINs revaluation impact of $419 million;

  • Favorable derivative impacts of $61 million from gains on open crack spread swap positions in the current period and wider margins on Canadian crude oil forward purchases and sales compared to the prior period;

  • A decrease in the Group 3 2-1-1 crack spread of $5.91 per barrel, driven by a tightening distillate crack spread primarily due to strong utilization of the U.S. refining fleet during the winter and slowing demand trends; and

  • Unfavorable inventory valuation impacts of $32 million in 2023 compared to favorable inventory valuation impacts of $22 million in 2022, primarily due to decreased crude oil prices in the current period.

Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment

Fourth Quarter 2023 Compared to Fourth Quarter 2022

The Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment reported operating income of $17 million on net sales of $142 million for the fourth quarter 2023, compared to operating income of $102 million on net sales of $212 million for the fourth quarter 2022.

CVR Partners’ fertilizer facilities produced a combined 205,000 tons of ammonia during the fourth quarter 2023, of which 75,000 net tons were available for sale, while the rest was upgraded to other fertilizer products, including 306,000 tons of urea ammonia nitrate (“UAN”). During the fourth quarter 2022, the fertilizer facilities produced 210,000 tons of ammonia, of which 75,000 net tons were available for sale, while the remainder was upgraded to other fertilizer products, including 308,000 tons of UAN.

Fourth quarter 2023 average realized gate prices for UAN declined by 47 percent to $241 per ton and ammonia declined by 52 percent to $461 per ton when compared to the fourth quarter 2022. Average realized gate prices for UAN and ammonia were $455 per ton and $967 per ton, respectively, for the fourth quarter 2022.

Full-Year 2023 Compared to Full-Year 2022

Full-year 2023 operating income was $201 million on net sales of $681 million, compared to operating income of $320 million on net sales of $836 million for full-year 2022.

For full-year 2023, our fertilizer facilities produced a combined 864,000 tons of ammonia, of which 270,000 net tons were available for sale, while the rest was upgraded to other fertilizer products, including 1,369,000 tons of UAN. For full-year 2022, the fertilizer facilities produced 703,000 tons of ammonia, of which 213,000 net tons were available for sale, while the remainder was upgraded to other fertilizer products, including 1,140,000 tons of UAN.

The average realized gate prices for full-year 2023 for UAN declined by 36 percent to $309 per ton and ammonia declined by 44 percent to $573 per ton when compared to the full-year 2022. Average realized gate prices for UAN and ammonia were $486 per ton and $1,024 per ton, respectively, for full-year 2022.

Corporate and Other

The Company reported income tax expense of $207 million, or 19.1 percent of income before income taxes, for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to an income tax expense of $157 million, or 19.6 percent of income before income taxes, for the year ended December 31, 2022. The increase in income tax expense was due primarily to an increase in overall pretax earnings, partially offset by decreases in state tax rates and an increase in tax credits and incentives generated for the year ended December 31, 2023 compared to the year ended December 31, 2022. In addition, the change in the effective tax rate was due primarily to changes in pretax earnings attributable to noncontrolling interests, decreases in state tax rates and an increase in tax credits and incentives generated for the year ended December 31, 2023 compared to the year ended December 31, 2022.

The renewable diesel unit at the Wynnewood refinery continued to increase production, with total vegetable oil throughputs for the year ended December 31, 2023 of approximately 82.5 million gallons, up from 42.5 million gallons for the year ended December 31, 2022. The increase was primarily due to the renewable diesel unit being fully operational for all of 2023 compared to the prior year when the unit was only operational for a portion of the year after being completed in April 2022.

Cash, Debt and Dividend

Consolidated cash and cash equivalents was $581 million at December 31, 2023. Consolidated total debt and finance lease obligations was $2.2 billion at December 31, 2023, including $547 million held by the Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment.

On December 21, 2023, CVR Energy completed the issuance of $600 million in aggregate principal amount of 8.50% Senior Notes due 2029 (the “2029 Notes”). The 2029 Notes mature on January 15, 2029, unless earlier redeemed or purchased. The 2029 Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis, jointly and severally, by the wholly-owned subsidiaries of CVR Energy, with the exception of CVR Partners and its subsidiaries and certain immaterial wholly-owned subsidiaries of CVR Energy. The net proceeds of the offering were reserved to fund the redemption of CVR Energy’s 5.25% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “2025 Notes”).

On February 15, 2024, CVR Energy redeemed all of the outstanding 2025 Notes, at par, and settled accrued interest of approximately $16 million through the date of redemption. As a result of this transaction, the Company will recognize a $1 million loss on extinguishment of debt in the first quarter of 2024, which consists of the write-off of unamortized deferred financing costs.

CVR Energy announced a fourth quarter 2023 cash dividend of 50 cents per share. The quarterly dividend, as declared by CVR Energy’s Board of Directors, will be paid on March 11, 2024, to stockholders of record as of March 4, 2024.

CVR Partners announced that the Board of Directors of its general partner declared a fourth quarter 2023 cash distribution of $1.68 per common unit, which will be paid on March 11, 2024, to common unitholders of record as of March 4, 2024.

Non-GAAP Measures

Our management uses certain non-GAAP performance measures, and reconciliations to those measures, to evaluate current and past performance and prospects for the future to supplement our financial information presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). These non-GAAP financial measures are important factors in assessing our operating results and profitability and include the performance and liquidity measures defined below.

The following are non-GAAP measures we present for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2023 and 2022:

EBITDA - Consolidated net income (loss) before (i) interest expense, net, (ii) income tax expense (benefit) and (iii) depreciation and amortization expense.

Petroleum EBITDA and Nitrogen Fertilizer EBITDA - Segment net income (loss) before segment (i) interest expense, net, (ii) income tax expense (benefit), and (iii) depreciation and amortization.

Refining Margin - The difference between our Petroleum Segment net sales and cost of materials and other.

Refining Margin, adjusted for Inventory Valuation Impacts - Refining Margin adjusted to exclude the impact of current period market price and volume fluctuations on crude oil and refined product inventories purchased in prior periods and lower of cost or net realizable value adjustments, if applicable. We record our commodity inventories on the first-in-first-out basis. As a result, significant current period fluctuations in market prices and the volumes we hold in inventory can have favorable or unfavorable impacts on our refining margins as compared to similar metrics used by other publicly-traded companies in the refining industry.

Refining Margin and Refining Margin adjusted for Inventory Valuation Impacts, per Throughput Barrel - Refining Margin and Refining Margin adjusted for Inventory Valuation Impacts divided by the total throughput barrels during the period, which is calculated as total throughput barrels per day times the number of days in the period.

Direct Operating Expenses per Throughput Barrel - Direct operating expenses for our Petroleum Segment divided by total throughput barrels for the period, which is calculated as total throughput barrels per day times the number of days in the period.

Adjusted EBITDA, Petroleum Adjusted EBITDA and Nitrogen Fertilizer Adjusted EBITDA - EBITDA, Petroleum EBITDA and Nitrogen Fertilizer EBITDA adjusted for certain significant non-cash items and items that management believes are not attributable to or indicative of our on-going operations or that may obscure our underlying results and trends.

Adjusted Earnings (Loss) per Share - Earnings (loss) per share adjusted for certain significant non-cash items and items that management believes are not attributable to or indicative of our on-going operations or that may obscure our underlying results and trends.

Free Cash Flow - Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures and capitalized turnaround expenditures.

We present these measures because we believe they may help investors, analysts, lenders and ratings agencies analyze our results of operations and liquidity in conjunction with our U.S. GAAP results, including but not limited to our operating performance as compared to other publicly-traded companies in the refining and fertilizer industries, without regard to historical cost basis or financing methods and our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures. Non-GAAP measures have important limitations as analytical tools, because they exclude some, but not all, items that affect net earnings and operating income. These measures should not be considered substitutes for their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures. See “Non-GAAP Reconciliations” included herein for reconciliation of these amounts. Due to rounding, numbers presented within this section may not add or equal to numbers or totals presented elsewhere within this document.

Factors Affecting Comparability of Our Financial Results

Petroleum Segment

Our results of operations for the periods presented may not be comparable with prior periods or to our results of operations in the future due to capitalized expenditures as part of planned turnarounds. Total capitalized expenditures were $60 million and $81 million during the years ended December 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The next planned turnarounds are currently scheduled to take place in the spring of 2024 at the Wynnewood Refinery at an estimated cost of $44 million and in 2025 at the Coffeyville Refinery.

Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment

Our results of operations for the periods presented may not be comparable with prior periods or to our results of operations in the future due to expenses incurred as part of planned turnarounds. We incurred turnaround expenses of $2 million and $33 million during the years ended December 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The next planned turnarounds are currently scheduled to take place in 2025 at the Coffeyville Fertilizer Facility and in 2026 at the East Dubuque Fertilizer Facility.

_______________
(1) Reflects our ammonia utilization rates on a consolidated basis. Utilization is an important measure used by management to assess operational output at each of the Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment’s facilities. Utilization is calculated as actual tons produced divided by capacity. We present our utilization for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively, and take into account the impact of our current turnaround cycles on any specific period. Additionally, we present utilization solely on ammonia production rather than each nitrogen product as it provides a comparative baseline against industry peers and eliminates the disparity of plant configurations for upgrade of ammonia into other nitrogen products. With our efforts being primarily focused on ammonia upgrade capabilities, this measure provides a meaningful view of how well we operate.

_______________
(1) The Petroleum Segment’s basis for determining inventory value under GAAP is First-In, First-Out (“FIFO”). Changes in crude oil prices can cause fluctuations in the inventory valuation of crude oil, work in process and finished goods, thereby resulting in a favorable inventory valuation impact when crude oil prices increase and an unfavorable inventory valuation impact when crude oil prices decrease. The inventory valuation impact is calculated based upon inventory values at the beginning of the accounting period and at the end of the accounting period. In order to derive the inventory valuation impact per total throughput barrel, we utilize the total dollar figures for the inventory valuation impact and divide by the number of total throughput barrels for the period.
