(EDGAR Online via COMTEX) -- Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our 2021 10-K Report and the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and related Notes in Item 1 - Financial Statements of this 10-Q Report. A reference to a "Note" herein refers to the accompanying Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements contained in Item 1 - Financial Statements. The following discussion may contain forward-looking statements, and our actual results may differ materially from the results suggested by these forward-looking statements. Some factors that may cause our results to differ are disclosed in Item 1A - Risk Factors of our 2021 10-K Report.

Forward-Looking Statements

These forward-looking statements are estimates and projections reflecting our best judgment and involve risks, uncertainties or other factors relating to our operations and business environment, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. Although we believe the estimates and projections reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, our expectations may prove to be incorrect. Our actual results may differ materially from the future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.

Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results and events anticipated or implied by such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to:

customer and counterparty creditworthiness and our ability to collect accounts receivable and settle derivative contracts;

adverse conditions in the industries in which our customers operate;

sudden changes in the market price of fuel or extremely high or low fuel prices that continue for an extended period of time;

our ability to effectively integrate and derive benefits from acquired businesses;

our inability to effectively mitigate certain financial risks and other risks associated with derivatives and our physical fuel products;

our failure to comply with restrictions and covenants in our senior revolving credit facility ("Credit Facility") and our senior term loans ("Term Loans"), including our financial covenants;

the impact of cyber and other information security-related incidents;

changes in the political, economic or regulatory environment generally and in the markets in which we operate, such as the current conflict in Eastern Europe;

greenhouse gas reduction ("GHG") programs and other environmental and climate change legislation adopted by governments around the world, including cap and trade regimes, carbon taxes, increased

efficiency standards and mandates for renewable energy, each of which could increase our operating and compliance costs as well as adversely impact our sales of fuel products;

changes in credit terms extended to us from our suppliers;

non-performance of suppliers on their sale commitments and customers on their purchase commitments;

non-performance of third-party service providers;

increases in interest rates;

our ability to meet financial forecasts associated with our operating plan;

lower than expected cash flows and revenues, which could impair our ability to realize the value of recorded intangible assets and goodwill;

the availability of cash and sufficient liquidity to fund our working capital and strategic investment needs;

currency exchange fluctuations;

ability to effectively leverage technology and operating systems and realize the anticipated benefits;

failure to meet fuel and other product specifications agreed with our customers;

our ability to achieve the expected level of benefit from our restructuring activities and cost reduction initiatives;

environmental and other risks associated with the storage, transportation and delivery of petroleum products;

reputational harm from adverse publicity arising out of spills, environmental contamination or public perception about the impacts on climate change by us or other companies in our industry;

risks associated with operating in high-risk locations, including supply disruptions, border closures and other logistical difficulties that arise when working in these areas;

uninsured or underinsured losses;

seasonal variability that adversely affects our revenues and operating results, as well as the impact of natural disasters, such as earthquakes, hurricanes and wildfires;

declines in the value and liquidity of cash equivalents and investments;

our ability to retain and attract senior management and other key employees;

changes in U.S. or foreign tax laws, interpretations of such laws, changes in the mix of taxable income among different tax jurisdictions, or adverse results of tax audits, assessments, or disputes;

our failure to generate sufficient future taxable income in jurisdictions with material deferred tax assets and net operating loss carryforwards;

the impact of the U.K.'s exit from the European Union, known as Brexit, on our business, operations and financial condition;

our ability to comply with U.S. and international laws and regulations, including those related to anti-corruption, economic sanction programs and environmental matters;

the extent of the impact of the pandemic, including the duration, spread, severity and scope of related government orders and restrictions, on ours and our customers' sales, profitability, operations and supply chains;

the outcome of litigation and other proceedings, including the costs associated in defending any actions; and

other risks, including those described in Item 1A - Risk Factors in our 2021 10-K Report, and those described from time to time in our other filings with the SEC.

We operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks emerge from time to time. It is not possible for us to predict all of those risks, nor can we assess the impact of all of those risks on our business or the extent to which any factor may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. Further, forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and unless required by law, we expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to publicly update any of them in light of new information, future events, or otherwise. Any public statements or disclosures by us following this report that modify or impact any of the forward-looking statements contained in or accompanying this 10-Q Report will be deemed to modify or supersede such forward-looking statements.

For these statements, we claim the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act, as amended (the "Exchange Act").
