Murphy USA Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2021 Results

Murphy USA Inc. /zigman2/quotes/205022124/composite MUSA +2.53% , a leading marketer of retail motor fuel products and convenience merchandise, today announced financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.

Key Highlights:

  • Net income was $128.8 million, or $4.79 per diluted share, in Q2 2021 compared to net income of $168.9 million, or $5.73 per diluted share, in Q2 2020

  • Total fuel contribution (retail fuel margin plus product supply and wholesale ("PS&W") results including RINs) for Q2 2021 was 28.2 cpg, compared to 38.3 cpg in Q2 2020

  • Total retail gallons increased 32.6% in Q2 2021 compared to Q2 2020, while volumes on a same store sales ("SSS") basis increased 22.4%

  • Merchandise contribution dollars increased 55.8% to $184.5 million compared to the prior-year quarter, on average unit margins of 19.2% in the current quarter, enhanced by the QuickChek acquisition

  • Food and beverage contribution margin increased significantly to 15.2% of total merchandise contribution dollars compared to 0.8% in the prior year period due to the inclusion of QuickChek in the current period

  • During Q2 2021, the Company opened 3 new Murphy Express stores and closed 1 QuickChek store. There are 9 new Murphy Express sites, 6 new QuickChek sites, and 14 raze-and-rebuild Murphy USA sites currently under construction

  • Common shares repurchased during Q2 2021 were approximately 1.1 million for $148.3 million at an average price of $136.58 per share

“We delivered strong second quarter results, despite an operating environment that was the most challenging in our company's history," said President and CEO Andrew Clyde. “Supply chain issues, labor shortages, and Colonial pipeline interruptions were just a few of the challenges around which our teams were forced to navigate and overcome. Nevertheless, results were resilient despite these challenges and underpinned by strong fundamentals, including a recovery in attached merchandise categories as customer transactions and fuel volumes trended higher in June, coupled with robust all-in fuel margins despite another quarter of rising product prices. Second quarter results were also noteworthy against the strength of the prior year comparison, and highlight the advantage of our low-cost, high volume business model, which differentiates our performance potential and better positions Murphy USA to compete and win in a challenging environment."

Net income and Adjusted EBITDA for Q2 2021 were lower when compared to Q2 2020, primarily due to decreased all-in fuel contribution, higher store operating expenses, and increased payment fees, partially offset by higher merchandise sales and margin. All amounts reported for the quarter and year-to-date 2021 periods include the consolidated results of our wholly-owned subsidiary, Quick Chek Corporation ("QuickChek") from January 29, 2021.

Total fuel contribution dollars decreased 2.5%, or $8.0 million, in Q2 of 2021 compared to Q2 of 2020. Retail fuel margins in Q2 2021 decreased to 21.8 cpg which was 31.2% lower than Q2 2020 due to rising fuel prices. There was a decrease in total retail fuel contribution dollars of $24.1 million compared to the prior-year quarter record results as overall lower retail fuel margins were partially offset by an increase in retail fuel volumes. PS&W revenues (including RINs) improved by $16.1 million when compared to Q2 2020 primarily due to higher RIN prices, which offset the majority of the negative spot-to-rack margins. In addition, typical timing and price-related impacts across the remainder of the product supply chain accounted for the remainder of the difference.

Total merchandise contribution increased 55.8% to $184.5 million in Q2 2021 from $118.4 million reported in the prior year quarter, due to the inclusion of QuickChek in the current year combined with higher same-store sales, which were up 2.4% when compared to Q2 2020. On a SSS basis, tobacco contribution increased 2.2% and non-tobacco contribution improved 2.7% versus the prior year quarter. Food and beverage contribution, a subset of non-tobacco, experienced a significant shift to 15.2% of the total merchandise contribution primarily due to QuickChek's robust prepared food offer.

Store OPEX excluding payment fees and rent were $48.9 million higher versus the year-ago period, primarily attributable to the addition of QuickChek. While QuickChek locations have higher per store operating costs due to the larger format and enhanced offer, the core MUSA network also experienced higher operating expenses, primarily due to higher employee-related expenses and higher maintenance costs, which were partially a function of more stores in the network. Total SG&A costs were $11.4 million higher than the year-ago period, primarily due to the inclusion of QuickChek in second quarter 2021 results.

Store Openings

The Company opened 3 new-to-industry retail locations and closed 1 location in Q2 2021, bringing the network total to 1,662. This total consists of 1,151 Murphy USA stores, 356 Murphy Express stores, and 155 QuickChek stores. There are a total of 29 Company stores currently under construction, including 9 new 2,800 sq. foot Murphy Express stores, 6 QuickChek stores, and 14 raze-and-rebuilds.

2021 Guidance Update

The Company has continued its strong performance into 2021 despite very challenging macro conditions in the marketplace. While management has not historically made a practice of updating guidance throughout the year, there are several metrics that were previously provided for the 2021 year in January that need to be revised based on updated conditions.

    2021 Original Guidance Range   2021 Updated Guidance Range
Organic Growth        
New Stores   up to 55   34 to 38
Raze-and-Rebuilds   up to 25   31
Fuel Contribution        
Retail fuel volume per store (K gallons APSM)   245 to 255   232 to 238
Store Profitability        
Merchandise contribution ($ Millions)   $680 to $700   $690 to $700
Retail store OPEX excluding credit cards ($K, APSM)   $27 to $28   $28 to $29
Corporate Costs        
SG&A ($ Millions per year)   $190 to $200   $190 to $200
Effective Tax Rate   24% to 26%   24% to 26%
Capital Allocation        
Capital expenditures ($ Millions)   $325 to $375   $325 to $375

The overall fuel margin environment has been more favorable in 2021 than the Company's original full year estimates, which should lead to higher overall net income and Adjusted EBITDA for the Company than anticipated based on year-to-date results. In addition, the current market and competitive dynamics impacting the fuels price environment continue to suggest higher than forecasted margins could persist and benefit the Company for the second half of the year. Organic growth is slightly hampered by the supply chain issues impacting all businesses in 2021 with delays on certain key components of our new store builds delaying a portion of our planned 2021 growth. Through diligent partnership with our key vendors, we expect to defer those stores into early 2022. For fuel volumes, the ramp back to pre-COVID levels has not occurred as quickly as we anticipated, therefore our updated projections are for a range of 232k to 238k on an APSM basis, inclusive of QuickChek volumes. Operating expenses in our stores have experienced labor pressures which has caused us to increase overtime spending and offer incentives to attract and retain qualified employees to run our business. The resulting impact of these increased costs is that our operating expense projection on an APSM basis has raised slightly. More details on the guidance updates will be discussed in our earnings conference call noted below.

Notes

Average Per Store Month (APSM) metric includes all stores open through the date of the calculation, including stores acquired during the period.

Same store sales (SSS) metric includes aggregated individual store results for all stores open throughout both periods presented. For all periods presented, the store must have been open for the entire calendar year to be included in the comparison. Remodeled stores that remained open or were closed for just a very brief time (less than a month) during the period being compared remain in the same store sales calculation. If a store is replaced either at the same location (raze-and-rebuild) or relocated to a new location, it will be excluded from the calculation during the period it is out of service. Newly constructed stores do not enter the calculation until they are open for each full calendar year for the periods being compared (open by January 1, 2020 for the stores being compared in the 2021 versus 2020 comparison). Acquired stores are not included in the calculation of same store sales for the first 12 months after the acquisition.

Supplemental Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Information

The following table sets forth the Company’s EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020. EBITDA means net income (loss) plus net interest expense, plus income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, and Adjusted EBITDA adds back (i) other non-cash items (e.g., impairment of properties and accretion of asset retirement obligations) and (ii) other items that management does not consider to be meaningful in assessing our operating performance (e.g., (income) from discontinued operations, net settlement proceeds, (gain) loss on sale of assets, loss on early debt extinguishment, transaction and integration costs related to acquisitions, and other non-operating (income) expense). EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures that are prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

We use Adjusted EBITDA in our operational and financial decision-making, believing that the measure is useful to eliminate certain items in order to focus on what we deem to be a more reliable indicator of ongoing operating performance and our ability to generate cash flow from operations. Adjusted EBITDA is also used by many of our investors, research analysts, investment bankers, and lenders to assess our operating performance. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because it allows understanding of a key measure that we evaluate internally when making operating and strategic decisions, preparing our annual plan, and evaluating our overall performance. However, non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP disclosures, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may be prepared differently by us than by other companies using similarly titled non-GAAP measures.

The reconciliation of net income (loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is as follows:

                 
    Three Months Ended   Six Months Ended
(Millions of dollars)   2021   2020   2021   2020

Interest expense, net of interest income   20.4     12.8     41.7     25.3  
Depreciation and amortization   53.3     39.5     104.3     78.9
