Kirk Milling, CEO, commented “We are pleased in the way we finished up our first full year as a public company as we ended the year with the highest volume sold in the company’s history. The higher volume combined with improved global pricing led to a 15% improvement in our Adjusted EBITDA.”

“We remain very focused on executing our organic growth plans and are targeting to increase our distributions in 2015 as a result by approximately 3 to 6%. Our outlook is for sales and EBITDA growth to be driven by additional volume produced from our de-bottlenecking projects, continued improvement in global pricing and lower energy prices. We may experience some cost headwind in the form of strengthened dollar to euro rates, higher pension expenses and slightly higher freight expenses.”

Our net sales increased by 7.1% to $126.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014 compared to $117.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, driven by increases in both international average sales price of 8.0% and volumes sold of 7.3%, partly offset by decreases in both domestic volumes sold and average sales price of 2.9% and 2.8%, respectively.

Operating costs and expenses

Our cost of products sold, including depreciation, depletion and amortization expense, increased 4.1% to $91.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014 from $87.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, due primarily to increases in both natural gas prices and freight costs during the period.

Our selling, general and administrative expenses increased 71.4% to $6.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014, from $3.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, primarily due to higher shared services expenses and increased compliance costs in the current quarter compared to prior-year fourth quarter.

Our net sales increased by 5.2% to $465.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2014 from $442.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, driven by increases in both international average sales price of 6.8% and total volumes sold of 2.3%, partly offset by a decrease in domestic average sales price of 2.0%.

Operating costs and expenses

Our cost of products sold, including deprecation and amortization expense, decreased by 0.4% to $347.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2014 from $349.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, primarily driven by a decrease in depreciation and amortization expense during the year 2014 compared to 2013.

Our selling, general and administrative expenses increased 53.8% to $20.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2014 from $13.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, primarily due to higher shared services expenses and increased compliance costs in 2014 compared to 2013.

Our loss on disposal of assets of $1.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2014, relates to the disposal of one asset which was replaced, and the write-off of canceled or abandoned capital projects.

Our total other non-operating expense increased to $4.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2014, compared to $2.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, primarily due to the interest expense recorded during 2014 related to our July 2013 debt restructuring and the resulting higher average principal balance of our long-term debt during 2014 versus 2013.

The Partnership is a limited partnership and generally is not subject to federal or certain state income taxes. The Predecessor was subject to income tax and was included in the consolidated income tax returns of OCI Enterprises Inc. Income taxes were allocated to the Predecessor based on separate-company computations of income or loss. The income tax expense for the period ended December 31, 2013 are those of the Predecessor.

CAPEX AND ORE TO ASH RATIO

The following table summarizes our capital expenditures (including accruals) and ore to ash ratio for the three months and years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013 in the table below:

Three Months Ended
($ in millions, except for ratio data) December 31, Years Ended December 31,
2014 2013 2014 2013
Capital Expenditures
Maintenance $ 5.9 $ 4.8 $ 10.4 $ 14.3
Expansion 8.4 1.5 20.0 2.7

Operating and Other Data:
Ore to ash ratio (1) 1.53: 1.0 1.62: 1.0 1.52: 1.0 1.62: 1.0
(1) Ore to ash ratio expresses the number of short tons of trona ore needed to produce one short ton of soda ash and includes our deca rehydration recovery process.

The increase in capital expenditures during 2014 compared to 2013 is driven by the increased planned expansion projects to improve our operating capacity levels.

CASH FLOWS AND QUARTERLY CASH DISTRIBUTION

Cash Flows

Cash provided by operating activities increased 5.8% to $106.1 million during the year ended December 31, 2014 from $100.3 million during the year ended December 31, 2013, primarily driven by an increase of 30.2% in net income during 2014, partially offset by cash flows used in working capital of $9.8 million during the year ended December 31, 2014 compared to $5.5 million of cash flows provided from working capital in the prior year.

Quarterly Distribution

On January 16, 2015, the Partnership declared its fourth quarter 2014 quarterly distribution of $0.5315 per unit. This represents an increase of 1.24% over the last quarterly distribution and an increase of 6.3% over the distribution declared in the fourth quarter of 2013. The quarterly cash distribution is payable on February 13, 2015 to unitholders of record on January 30, 2015.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report our financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States or GAAP. We also present the non-GAAP financial measures of:

  • Adjusted EBITDA;
  • Distributable cash flow; and
  • Distribution coverage ratio.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus net interest expense, income tax, depreciation, depletion and amortization, unrealized derivative gains and losses and certain other expenses that are non-cash charges or that we consider not to be indicative of ongoing operations. Distributable cash flow is defined as Adjusted EBITDA less net cash paid for interest, maintenance capital expenditures and income taxes. Distributable cash flow will not reflect changes in working capital balances. We define distribution coverage ratio as the ratio of distributable cash flow per outstanding unit (as of the end of the period) to cash distributions payable per outstanding unit with respect to such period.

Adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio are non-GAAP supplemental financial measures that management and external users of our consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, may use to assess:

  • our operating performance as compared to other publicly traded partnerships in our industry, without regard to historical cost basis or, in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, financing methods;
  • the ability of our assets to generate sufficient cash flow to make distributions to our unitholders;
  • our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and
  • the viability of capital expenditure projects and the returns on investment of various investment opportunities.

We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio provide useful information to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are net income and net cash provided by operating activities. Our non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio should not be considered as an alternatives to GAAP net income, operating income, net cash provided by operating activities, or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow have important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some, but not all items that affect net income and net cash provided by operating activities. Investors should not consider Adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Because Adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio may be defined differently by other companies, including those in our industry, our definition of Adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing its utility.

The table below presents a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow to the GAAP financial measures of net income and net cash provided by operating activities:

(1) The Partnership may fund expansion-related capital expenditures with borrowings under existing credit facilities such that expansion-related capital expenditures will have no impact on cash on hand or the calculation of cash available for distribution. In certain instances, the timing of the Partnership’s borrowings and/or its cash management practices will result in a mismatch between the period of the borrowing and the period of the capital expenditure. In those instances, the Partnership adjusts designated reserves (as provided in the partnership agreement) to take account of the timing difference. Accordingly, expansion-related capital expenditures have been excluded from the presentation of cash available for distribution.

(1) The Partnership may fund expansion-related capital expenditures with borrowings under existing credit facilities such that expansion-related capital expenditures will have no impact on cash on hand or the calculation of cash available for distribution. In certain instances, the timing of the Partnership’s borrowings and/or its cash management practices will result in a mismatch between the period of the borrowing and the period of the capital expenditure. In those instances, the Partnership adjusts designated reserves (as provided in the partnership agreement) to take account of the timing difference. Accordingly, expansion-related capital expenditures have been excluded from the presentation of cash available for distribution.
