United Refining Company Reports Record Year End Fiscal 2012 Results

WARREN, Pa., Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- United Refining Company, a leading regional refiner and marketer of petroleum products announces results for the Company's fiscal year ended August 31, 2012.

EBITDA1 increased $348.2 million for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2012 to a record $401.3 million from $53.1 million for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2011. 

Net income for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2012 was $190.8 million, an improvement of $198.9 million from net loss of $8.1 million for the year ended August 31, 2011.

Net income and EBITDA includes $43.8 million of unrealized gains on derivative contracts for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2012.

Net sales for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2012 were $3.7 billion as compared to $3.2 billion for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2011.  Wholesale sales increased during fiscal 2012 by $461.8 million or 29.9% for the comparable period in fiscal 2011 from $1,543.1 million to $2,004.9 million.  The increase was due to a 6.2% increase in wholesale selling prices and a 22.3% increase in wholesale volume.  Retail sales increased during fiscal 2012 by $102.2 million or 6.3% for the comparable period in fiscal 2011 from $1,623.8 million to $1,726.0 million.  The retail sales increase was primarily due to increases in petroleum selling prices and merchandise sales.

United Refining Company uses the term EBITDA or earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, which is a term not defined under United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.  The Company uses the term EBITDA because it is a widely accepted financial indicator utilized to analyze and compare companies on the basis of operating performance and is used to calculate certain debt coverage ratios included in several of the Company's debt agreements.  The Company's calculation of EBITDA includes an adjustment for a gain that resulted from an extinguishment of its debt since the gain was not a result of the normal operations of the Company.  See reconciliation of EBITDA to Net Income in Footnote (1) in table set forth below.  The Company's method of computing EBITDA may or may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies.
