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

Calgary, Alberta, March 3, 2022 / CNW / - 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 growth[5] ("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 utilization[6] 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 expenditures[7] (attributable to Parkland) of between $250 million and $300 million.

◦       Maintenance capital expenditures[7] (attributable to Parkland) of between $225 million and $275 million.

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.

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.

(1) Prior to March 31, 2021, distributable cash flow was referred to as adjusted distributable cash flow.
(2) 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.
(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".

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.
