Intrepid Announces Second Quarter 2020 Results

DENVER, CO, Aug. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intrepid Potash, Inc. (Intrepid) (NYSE:IPI) today reported its results for the second quarter of 2020.

Key Takeaways for Q2 2020

  • Cash flow from operations of $8.8 million
  • Net loss of $8.9 million, or $0.07 per share
  • Adjusted net loss(1) of $8.6 million, or $0.07 per share
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $0.6 million

Recent Developments

  • Voluntarily repaid remaining $15 million of outstanding principal on Series C Senior Notes on July 17, 2020, leapfrogging our Series B Notes that mature in April 2023. This payment reduced our effective interest rate and provides us with considerable more flexibility with our remaining lenders. After the payment, we had $14 million in cash on hand, $15 million outstanding on our senior notes, and $30 million in borrowings under our revolving credit facility with $44 million available to borrow.
     
  • On July 28, 2020, our shareholders voted to grant the Board of Directors authority to effect a reverse split of our common stock at a ratio between 1-for-3 and 1-for-15. Our board plans to convene on August 10, 2020, to discuss a possible split.

"Our second quarter results were clearly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic as oilfield activity and water sales decreased significantly from the first quarter of 2020. This overshadowed a strong finish to the spring application season and good 2020 evaporation rates at our potash facilities," said Bob Jornayvaz, Intrepid's Executive Chairman, President, and CEO. "We have good pond levels at our solar facilities and our magnesium chloride production is back at normal rates in Wendover. Well completion activity resumed in the Delaware Basin in recent weeks although we still expect a gradual climb back to our first quarter water sales rate. Given the uncertainty, we continue to thoughtfully manage our balance sheet with good availability remaining under our revolving credit facility at very favorable rates and the potential to expand that facility in the future. The early repayment of our Series C Notes not only lowers our effective interest rate, but paves the way for a simpler debt structure that will allow us to more effectively pursue our strategy. We have also used our entire Paycheck Protection Program loan to pay eligible payroll expenses and expect the loan will be forgiven later in the year."

Jornayvaz continued, "The underlying resource of the Delaware Basin hasn't changed and we are still optimistic about the long-term potential of an area that is full of well-financed and long-term focused operators. While we must remain prudent in our capital decisions, we are not shying away from what we believe are generational opportunities to expand our oilfield solutions assets in southeast New Mexico."

Consolidated Results

We generated a second quarter 2020 net loss of $8.9 million, or $0.07 per share and a negative gross margin of $0.6 million. Decreased earnings compared to the prior year were the result of lower water sales that were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic as oil demand decreased significantly leading to decreased oil and gas activity, reduced average net realized sales price(1) for potash, and increased production costs for potash and Trio®. We also recorded a $1.9 million lower of cost or net realizable inventory adjustment on our Trio® product in the second quarter due to a summer-fill price announcement in June 2020, which lowered the list price of Trio® $15-$20 per ton for deliveries through the third quarter. 

First half 2020 net loss increased to $16.3 million, or $0.13 per share, while gross margin decreased to $5.0 million when compared to the prior year period. In addition to the second quarter results discussed above, first half net loss was further impacted by the first quarter accrual of a $10 million settlement payment agreed upon at our March settlement hearing relating to the Mosaic litigation and partially offset by a first quarter gain of $4.7 million on the restricted sale of 320 acres of fee land at the Intrepid South property.

We expect the economic disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to have a material effect on revenue growth and overall profitability, particularly for our oilfield solutions segment, in future reporting periods.

Segment Highlights

Potash

    Three Months Ended June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,
    2020   2019   2020   2019
    (in thousands, except per ton data)
Sales   $ 24,526      $ 35,547      $ 58,317      $ 69,877   
Gross margin   $ 2,015      $ 8,228      $ 6,349      $ 17,592   
                 
Potash sales volumes (in tons)   74      95      173      183   
Potash production volumes (in tons)       56      140      167   
                 
Average potash net realized sales price per ton(1)   $ 256      $ 299      $ 256      $ 294   

Gross margin decreased compared to the same periods in 2019, due to the decrease in average net realized sales price per ton, increased per ton production costs, and a decrease in potash and byproduct sales.

Sales in the second quarter of 2020 decreased compared to the same period in 2019, due to a 22% decrease in sales volume, a 14% decrease in average net realized sales price per ton, and a $0.6 million decrease in byproduct sales. Agricultural sales were down in the second quarter compared to the prior year, due to good early season weather which moved the spring season to earlier in the year. First half agricultural volumes were similar to the prior year. Second quarter and first half industrial potash sales were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic as oil demand decreased significantly leading to decreased oil and gas activity.

Average net realized sales price per ton was lower due to price decreases announced in the summer of 2019 and under the winter-fill program announced in January 2020. Intrepid also sold fewer tons into the industrial market which generally carries higher pricing. Potash segment byproduct sales decreased as reduced oil and gas activity resulted in decreased byproduct water and brine sales. Salt sales decreased compared to 2019 as salt availability improved in certain regions of the country in the first half of 2020 which reduced our sales footprint. In June 2020, a summer-fill program was announced by our competitors that lowered the price $40 per ton and $30 per ton in the corn belt and western United States, respectively, from current list prices. This is in effect a decrease of $20 per ton and $10 per ton for the corn belt and western United States, respectively, when compared to the winter-fill pricing from the first quarter of 2020. We expect to sell at the summer-fill pricing levels through at least the third quarter.

Cost of goods sold decreased in the second quarter of 2020, compared to the same period in 2019, due to a 22% decrease in sales volume offset by higher per-ton production costs across our facilities as a result of the below average evaporation in 2019. First half cost of goods sold were similar to the prior year due to the same factors.

Potash production decreased compared to the second quarter and first half of 2019 as we finished the 2020 spring production season earlier than the previous year due to reduced pond inventory as a result of below average evaporation rates in the summer of 2019.

Trio®

    Three Months Ended June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,
    2020   2019   2020   2019
    (in thousands, except per ton data)
Sales   $ 19,251        $ 21,435      $ 41,832        $ 39,245   
Gross (deficit) margin   $ (3,225 )     $ 1,454      $ (6,780 )     $ 2,186   
                 
Trio® sales volume (in tons)   64        71      140        127   
Trio® production volume (in tons)   50        66      100        129   
                 
Average Trio® net realized sales price per ton(1)   $ 208        $ 196      $ 200        $ 200   

Trio® generated a negative gross margin of $3.2 million and $6.8 million in the second quarter and first half of 2020, respectively. Margins were lower compared to the prior year due to increased production costs, lower domestic pricing, and reduced byproducts sales.

Sales decreased 10% in the second quarter as compared to the same period in 2019 due to a 10% decrease in Trio® sales volume. International Trio® sales volumes decreased significantly in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019 due to our focus on domestic sales and the timing of shipments to international customers.

Cost of goods sold increased 13% and 34% in the second quarter and first six months of 2020, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2019. Increases in both periods were due to increased losses in the pelletization process and reduced fine langbeinite recovery levels in order to manage inventory levels. In addition, a higher percentage of tons sold in the prior year had been written down in prior quarters through lower of cost or net realizable value adjustments which resulted in lower per ton costs of product sold. During the first six months of 2020, we also sold a higher percentage of premium Trio® which carries a higher per-ton cost than other Trio® products.

We recorded a $1.9 million lower of cost or net realizable value inventory adjustment in the second quarter of 2020 due to the summer-fill price announced by our competitor in June 2020 which lowered the list price on Trio® by $15-$20 per ton. We expect to sell at these reduced prices through at least the third quarter of 2020.

Production volume decreased 24% and 22% in the second quarter and first six months of 2020, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2019, as we used fewer tons of work-in-process inventory to convert to premium Trio®, we decreased our fine langbeinite recovery to manage inventory levels, and we experienced increased losses in our pelletization process.

Oilfield Solutions

    Three Months Ended June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,
    2020   2019   2020   2019
    (in thousands)
Sales   $ 2,747      $ 5,641      $ 10,488      $ 12,263   
Gross margin   $ 611      $ 3,489      $ 5,455      $ 6,561   

Sales decreased $2.9 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to 2019, due to reduced sales of water and other oilfield products and services as the COVID-19 pandemic pressured oil prices and reduced oil and gas completion activity. First half 2020 sales decreased compared to 2019 primarily due to a decrease in demand for our high-speed mixing service.

The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent decrease in oil and gas activity has led to reduced demand for water and our high-speed mixing service. We expect this will continue to decrease water sales in the second half of 2020, when compared to prior year periods, although the unprecedented conditions resulting from COVID-19 make forecasting future demand difficult.

Liquidity

Cash provided by operations was $8.8 million during the second quarter of 2020. Cash used in investing activities was $8.4 million, which included a $3.5 million equity investment in W.D. Von Gonten Laboratories, an industry leader in drilling and completion chemistry and a strong supporter of the use of potassium chloride in oil and gas drilling and completion activities. As of June 30, 2020, we had $34.6 million in cash and cash equivalents.

On July 17, 2020, we made an early voluntary repayment on our Series C Senior Notes in the amount of $17.1 million, which included $15.0 million in remaining principal, a reduced make-whole payment, and accrued interest. Our Series B Notes were unchanged and still mature in April 2023. This payment reduces our effective interest rate, and provides us with considerable more flexibility with our remaining lenders to pursue our strategy. After the payment, we had $14 million in cash on hand, $15 million outstanding on our senior notes, $10 million outstanding from the Paycheck Protection Program, and $30 million in borrowings under our revolving credit facility with $44 million available to borrow.

Reverse Stock Split Announcement

As announced previously, on July 28, 2020 our shareholders voted to grant the Board of Directors authority to effect a reverse split of our common stock at a ratio between 1-for-3 and 1-for-15. We plan to convene our Board to discuss a possible split on August 10, 2020. In accordance with the approved proposals, the exact ratio and effective date of the split, if the Board elects to pursue one, will be set within the approved range at the sole discretion of the Board without further approval or authorization of Intrepid's stockholders.

Notes

1 Adjusted net (loss) income, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (or adjusted EBITDA) and average net realized sales price per ton are non-GAAP financial measures.

To supplement Intrepid's consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, Intrepid uses several non-GAAP financial measures to monitor and evaluate its performance. These non-GAAP financial measures include adjusted net (loss) income, adjusted net (loss) income per diluted share, adjusted EBITDA, and average net realized sales price per ton. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.  In addition, because the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures varies among companies, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Intrepid believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors for analysis of its business. Intrepid uses these non-GAAP financial measures as one of its tools in comparing period-over-period performance on a consistent basis and when planning, forecasting, and analyzing future periods. Intrepid believes these non-GAAP financial measures are used by professional research analysts and others in the valuation, comparison, and investment recommendations of companies in the potash mining industry. Many investors use the published research reports of these professional research analysts and others in making investment decisions. 


Adjusted Net (Loss) Income and Adjusted Net (Loss) Income Per Diluted Share

Adjusted net (loss) income and adjusted net (loss) income per diluted share are calculated as net (loss) income or (loss) income per diluted share adjusted for certain items that impact the comparability of results from period to period, as set forth in the reconciliation below. We consider these non-GAAP financial measures to be useful because they allow for period-to-period comparisons of its operating results excluding items that we believe are not indicative of its fundamental ongoing operations.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (or adjusted EBITDA) is calculated as net (loss) income adjusted for certain items that impact the comparability of results from period to period, as set forth in the reconciliation below. Intrepid considers adjusted EBITDA to be useful, and believe it to be useful for investors, because the measure reflects Intrepid's operating performance before the effects of certain non-cash items and other items that Intrepid believes are not indicative of its core operations. Intrepid uses adjusted EBITDA to assess operating performance.

Average Potash and Trio® Net Realized Sales Price per Ton

Average net realized sales price per ton for potash is calculated as potash segment sales less potash segment byproduct sales and potash freight costs and then dividing that difference by the number of tons of potash sold in the period. Likewise, average net realized sales price per ton for Trio® is calculated as Trio® segment sales less Trio® segment byproduct sales and Trio® freight costs and then dividing that difference by Trio® tons sold. Intrepid considers average net realized sales price per ton to be useful, and believe it to be useful for investors, because it shows Intrepid's potash and Trio® average per ton pricing without the effect of certain transportation and delivery costs. When Intrepid arranges transportation and delivery for a customer, it includes in revenue and in freight costs the costs associated with transportation and delivery. However, some of Intrepid's customers arrange for and pay their own transportation and delivery costs, in which case these costs are not included in Intrepid's revenue and freight costs. Intrepid uses average net realized sales price per ton as a key performance indicator to analyze potash and Trio® sales and price trends.
