HOUSTON, Oct. 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hi-Crush Partners LP (NYSE:HCLP), "Hi-Crush" or the "Partnership", today reported third quarter 2017 results.  Revenues for the third quarter of 2017 totaled $167.6 million on sales of 2,456,195 tons of frac sand.  This compares to $135.2 million of revenues on sales of 2,112,516 tons of frac sand in the second quarter of 2017.  The limited partners' interest in net income was $29.8 million for the third quarter of 2017, resulting in $0.33 basic and $0.32 diluted earnings per limited partner unit.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") for the third quarter of 2017 was $41.8 million, compared to $26.8 million for the second quarter of 2017.  EBITDA adjusted for earnings from equity method investments ("Adjusted EBITDA") was $41.7 million in the third quarter of 2017, compared to $26.5 million for the second quarter of 2017.  Distributable cash flow attributable to the limited partners for the third quarter of 2017 was $37.5 million compared to $22.9 million for the second quarter of 2017.

"The impressive third quarter performance we announced today is a direct result of our Mine. Move. Manage. operating strategy, and is underpinned by ongoing strength in oil and gas completions activity in the U.S.," said Robert E. Rasmus, Chief Executive Officer of Hi-Crush. "Over the last several months, we completed several critical projects, including the construction and commencement of operations at our Kermit facility and Pecos terminal in the Permian Basin.  These projects enhance and extend our ability to service customers through our growing and integrated production and logistics network. Our sales volumes improved to approximately 2.5 million tons for the third quarter, in-line with guidance, and marking the highest quarterly volumes recorded in Hi-Crush history.  We remain relentlessly focused on execution, and our results are the outcome of our team’s efforts and success.  Our execution, combined with our capital return strategy to our unitholders, is driving significant value for Hi-Crush and its unitholders."

Third Quarter 2017 Results

Revenues for the third quarter of 2017 increased due to the sequential increase in sales volumes, combined with generally higher pricing.  Approximately 61% of quarterly volumes were sold in-basin for the third quarter of 2017, compared to 64% in the second quarter of 2017 and 47% in the third quarter of 2016.  The slight sequential decrease of in-basin sales percentage reflects the start of operations and volumes sold at the mine gate from the Kermit facility, while the increase as compared to the prior year reflects the change in mix of customer demand delivery point.  Average sales price was $68 per ton in the third quarter of 2017, compared to $64 per ton in the second quarter of 2017 and $43 per ton in the third quarter of 2016, as sales prices generally improved due to continued increases in frac sand demand in excess of available supply, particularly for fine mesh sand.

Contribution margin was $19.39 per ton in the third quarter of 2017, compared to $16.73 per ton in the second quarter of 2017.  The 16% increase in contribution margin per ton was primarily the result of increased pricing, as well as fixed cost absorption from higher sales volumes and increased asset utilization.  This increase in contribution margin per ton was partially offset by the impact of a one-time, non-cash charge of $2.3 million, or approximately $0.90 per ton, related to the use of certain coarse material from inventory to augment the reclamation process.

"Thanks to our team’s collective and relentless focus on execution, as well as the continued improvement in demand for frac sand, we realized significant growth across the entirety of our operations, accentuated by a 57% sequential increase in Adjusted EBITDA, 16% growth in volumes sold, and the generation of attractive distributable cash flow," said Laura C. Fulton, Chief Financial Officer of Hi-Crush. "This improvement in cash generation, combined with our outlook for continued growth, has allowed us to resume our capital return program.  We believe our balanced approach to capital return, comprised of quarterly cash distributions as well as a unit buyback program of up to $100 million, maximizes value and growth to unitholders over the near and long-term."

Kermit Facility

As announced previously, the Partnership commenced operations at its Kermit facility in July 2017.  The facility is the first to produce and sell in-basin frac sand in the Permian, and has an annual production capacity of 3.0 million tons.  Of this nameplate capacity, 90% is currently contracted with customers, including several large, blue-chip E&P companies under long-term, fixed-price arrangements.  The Kermit facility expands Hi-Crush’s industry-leading production and logistics capabilities in West Texas and significantly improves customer service while reducing delivered costs to the well site.

"The opening of our Kermit facility is a game-changer for our Permian Basin operations," said Ms. Fulton. "The facility expands our product portfolio, while its proximity to significant Permian Basin activity enables substantial efficiency improvements in the delivery of sand to the well site.  Volumes sold from Kermit contributed 10% of total sales volumes for the third quarter.  As anticipated, we ramped operations to achieve full utilization in mid-October and we expect to see a significant increase in our financial performance from Kermit in the fourth quarter of 2017.  Having completed construction and started operations two months ahead of schedule, Kermit is a clear example of our experience and expertise in constructing and operating large-scale, world-class frac sand production facilities."

Pecos Terminal

The Partnership also previously announced the commencement of operations at its new Pecos, Texas terminal, the first unit train capable terminal with silo storage in the Southern Delaware Basin.  Hi-Crush is actively delivering sand via rail to the Pecos terminal, which includes 20,000 tons of vertical silo storage on-site, from its two Union Pacific-connected Northern White facilities in Wisconsin. On October 3, 2017, Hi-Crush began loading customer trucks for delivery to support local completions activity.

"We are excited to have completed construction on schedule and started operations at our third Permian Basin terminal," said Mr. Rasmus. "The completion of Pecos augments our existing capabilities in the Permian, which include our Odessa and Big Spring terminals in the Midland Basin, and extends our advantage in the region while complementing our leading network of owned and operated logistics assets.  Together with our recently completed in-basin Kermit facility, these assets provide our customers with flexibility and diversity across sand product, and enhance surety of supply by mitigating potential logistical bottlenecks in these highly active areas.  In addition, PropStream, our last-mile containerized delivery solution, allows us to supply our sand directly into the blender hopper at the well site reliably, efficiently, and safely.  Controlling the entire logistics chain is a differentiator for Hi-Crush, particularly in an environment of significant growth, and will allow us to profitably and sustainably grow our business over the long-term."

PropStreamTM

Hi-Crush has seven PropStream crews currently operating in the Permian Basin and Marcellus and Utica plays, with the expectation to grow the total number of crews to nine or more by the end of 2017.

Liquidity and Capital Expenditures

As of September 30, 2017, the Partnership had $193.2 million of long-term debt outstanding, and was in compliance with the covenants defined in its Revolving Credit Facility Agreement.  As of September 30, 2017, Hi-Crush had $82.1 million in cash and available capacity under its revolving credit facility.

Capital expenditures for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, totaled $108.1 million related to costs associated with the construction of the Kermit facility, the terminal facility in Pecos, Texas, equipment for PropStream and overburden removal, among other projects.  The Partnership plans to spend in the range of $7 to $17 million on capital expenditures during the fourth quarter of 2017. 

The Partnership also announced that total capital expenditures for 2018 are expected to be in the range of $35 to $45 million, related to continued investment in equipment for PropStream, normal maintenance capital expenditures, including overburden removal, and discretionary investments in logistics assets.

Distribution and Unit Buyback Program

On October 16, 2017, Hi-Crush declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.15 per unit on all common units, or $0.60 on an annualized basis, for the third quarter of 2017.  The distribution will be paid on November 14, 2017 to unitholders of record on October 31, 2017.

On October 17, 2017, Hi-Crush announced that the Board of Directors approved a unit buyback program of up to $100 million.  The Partnership has authority at this time under its Revolving Credit Agreement and Term Loan Credit Agreement for repurchases of up to $20 million which, over the near-term and combined with the initial quarterly distribution and its expected growth, is well-aligned with Hi-Crush's capital return intentions.  The Partnership will seek consent under the Revolving Credit Agreement and Term Loan Credit Agreement allowing for the authorized amount of up to $100 million.  The repurchase program does not obligate the Partnership to repurchase any specific dollar amount or number of units and may be suspended, modified or discontinued by the Board of Directors at any time, in its sole discretion and without notice.

Outlook

For the fourth quarter of 2017, the Partnership expects sales volumes to increase to 2.7 to 2.9 million tons.  Pricing is also expected to improve modestly through the end of the year, driven by ongoing tightness in frac sand supply and demand, particularly for fine mesh sand.

"We have successfully ramped utilization at our Kermit facility and expect to run all five production facilities at an average utilization of 85% in the fourth quarter," said Mr. Rasmus. "The strong existing customer relationships we have maintained over the years, combined with increasing demand for contracted and spot volumes from newly added customers, has led to strong contracted commitments for Northern White volumes, in-basin sand and sand delivered  through PropStream contracted services.  Achieving our targeted level of commitments decreases volume risk as we approach 2018, while retaining the flexibility needed to serve our spot customers and our growing PropStream crews.  With the addition of our Pecos terminal and continued expansion of our PropStream service across our operating footprint, Hi-Crush is well-positioned to continue strong execution and customer service going into 2018 and beyond."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release and the accompanying schedules include the non-GAAP financial measure of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow, adjusted earnings per limited partner unit and contribution margin, which may be used periodically by management when discussing our financial results with investors and analysts.  The accompanying schedules of this news release provide reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP").

We define EBITDA as net income plus depreciation, depletion and amortization and interest expense, net of interest income.  We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA, adjusted for earnings (loss) from equity method investments and any non-cash impairments of goodwill and long-lived assets.  We define distributable cash flow as Adjusted EBITDA less cash paid for interest expense and maintenance and replacement capital expenditures, including accrual for reserve replacement, plus accretion of asset retirement obligations and non-cash unit-based compensation.  We use distributable cash flow as a performance metric to compare cash generating performance of the Partnership from period to period and to compare the cash generating performance for specific periods to the cash distributions (if any) that are expected to be paid to our unitholders.  Distributable cash flow will not reflect changes in working capital balances.  We define adjusted earnings per limited partner unit as earnings per limited partner unit, adjusted for the impact of non-recurring items.

We use contribution margin, which we define as total revenues less costs of goods sold excluding depreciation, depletion and amortization, to measure our financial and operating performance.  Contribution margin excludes other operating expenses and income, including costs not directly associated with the operations of our business such as accounting, human resources, information technology, legal, sales and other administrative activities.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow, adjusted earnings per limited partner unit and contribution margin are presented as management believes the data provides a measure of operating performance that is unaffected by historical cost basis and provides additional information and metrics relative to the performance of our business.
