Intrepid Announces Second Quarter 2021 Results

Denver, CO, Aug. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intrepid Potash, Inc. (Intrepid) (NYSE:IPI) today reported its results for the second quarter of 2021.

Key Takeaways for Q2 2021

  • As of June 30, 2021, Intrepid had $53 million in cash on hand and only $30 million of remaining debt which is outstanding on its revolving credit facility. Intrepid paid down its remaining $15 million of Senior Notes and received full forgiveness of its $10 million Paycheck Protection Program loan to achieve this cash positive position.
  • Net income of $19.5 million, or $1.46 per share and adjusted net income(1) of $7.4 million, or $0.55 per share
  • Gross margin of $14.2 million, an increase of $14.8 million compared to the second quarter of 2020
  • Cash flow from operations of $32.3 million in Q2 2021, increasing first half 2021 cash flow from operations to $51.4 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $16.9 million

"Second quarter and first half results continued to benefit from strong commodity prices and rising potash and Trio® pricing and demand, leading to significant improvements in net income, gross margin and EBITDA compared to the prior year." said Bob Jornayvaz, Intrepid's Executive Chairman and CEO. "Since announcing another potash and Trio® price increase in June, the fertilizer market continued to move up with buyers eager to secure supply in a limited market. We began our HB production season this week and expect to start our Utah solar solution mining facilities in early September. We are well positioned to supply our customers when the fall season begins and have already received strong buyer interest in new orders for fourth quarter delivery. We have been thoughtful in waiting to accept orders as the market remains tight."

Jornayvaz continued, "Oilfield activity continues to improve in the Delaware Basin as growth in rig counts and frac crews led to increased produced water royalty and surface use agreement revenue in the second quarter. We opportunistically scheduled our water on our South Ranch in the second quarter in anticipation of higher margin jobs, which have materialized, in the second half of the year. We expect steady growth in our oilfield solutions segment over the next six months and into 2022."

Consolidated Results

We generated second quarter 2021 net income of $19.5 million, or $1.46 per share and adjusted net income of $7.4 million or $0.55 per share. Consolidated gross margin increased to $14.2 million compared to the prior year's gross deficit of $0.6 million. First half 2021 net income increased to $21.9 million, or $1.65 per share when compared to prior year period and adjusted net income was $9.8 million or $0.74 per share. Gross margin for the first half of 2021 increased to $23.3 million compared to prior year first half gross margin of $5.0 million. Adjusted net income and gross margin in both periods increased as improved fertilizer pricing, strong demand in agricultural markets, and increased byproduct sales drove improvements in the bottom line.

In May 2021, we sold 326 acres of land in Texas for $6.0 million and recognized a gain on the sale of the land of $2.8 million. We purchased this land in May 2019 for the development of a produced water disposal facility and had permitted two disposal wells on the property. In June 2021, we received notice that the Small Business Administration had remitted funds to our bank to fully repay our Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan and accrued interest. Accordingly, we recognized a gain of $10.1 million related to the forgiveness of the PPP loan and the associated accrued interest on the loan.

Segment Highlights

Potash

    Three Months Ended June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,
    2021   2020   2021   2020
    (in thousands, except per ton data)
Sales   $ 37,693      $ 24,526      $ 81,270      $ 58,317   
Gross margin   $ 10,131      $ 2,015      $ 18,803      $ 6,349   
                 
Potash sales volumes (in tons)   92      74      208      173   
Potash production volumes (in tons)   51          164      140   
                 
Average potash net realized sales price per ton(1)   $ 319      $ 256      $ 300      $ 256   

Potash segment gross margin increased $8.1 million and $12.5 million in the second quarter and first half of 2021, respectively, when compared to prior year periods, as rising prices, increased demand, and more product available to sell after a good 2020 evaporation season all drove improvements to the bottom line.

Potash sales in the second quarter increased 54% compared to the same period in 2020, due to a 24% increase in sales volume, a 25% increase in our average net realized sales price per ton, and a $1.8 million increase in byproduct sales. Agricultural sales volumes continued to benefit from strong commodity prices and our industrial potash sales increased slightly in the second quarter due to the economic rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic. Average net realized sales price per ton improved compared to the same periods in 2020 due to several price increases announced since the fourth quarter of 2020 and will continue to increase in the third quarter of 2021 as second quarter price increases begin to take effect.

Increased byproduct sales in the second quarter were driven by a $0.9 million increased in magnesium chloride sales as we had more product to sell in 2021 due to good evaporation during the summer of 2020. Byproduct water sales increased $0.4 million compared to the second quarter of 2020 as a higher percentage of our total water sales were sales of byproduct water.

First half potash production increased significantly compared to the prior year as above average evaporation during the summer of 2020 increased the product available in our solar ponds and extended our production season. Second quarter production also increased compared to the prior year as we made up for the reduced operating days and production rates during the first quarter of 2021.

Trio®

    Three Months Ended June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,
    2021   2020   2021   2020
    (in thousands, except per ton data)
Sales   $ 26,924      $ 19,251        $ 50,619      $ 41,832     
Gross margin (deficit)   $ 3,162      $ (3,225 )     $ 3,093      $ (6,780 )  
                 
Trio® sales volume (in tons)   75      64        145      140     
Trio® production volume (in tons)   63      50        119      100     
                 
Average Trio® net realized sales price per ton(1)   $ 271      $ 208        $ 251      $ 200     

Our Trio® segment generated a gross margin of $3.2 million and $3.1 million in the second quarter and first half of 2021, respectively, as recent price increases improved our average net realized sales price per ton nearly 30% in both periods.

Total sales increased 40% for the second quarter of 2021 compared to the prior year, due to the higher prices and a 17% increase in sales volumes. Tons sold increased as strong commodity prices and the economic rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic drove an increase in demand for Trio®. We announced a $35 per ton increase in Trio® price in June and expect to realize the majority of that increase in the third quarter of 2021.

Production volume increased 26% and 19% second quarter and first half of 2021, respectively, when compared to the prior year periods, as we converted more tons of work-in-process inventory to premium Trio®.

Oilfield Solutions

    Three Months Ended June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,
    2021   2020   2021   2020
    (in thousands)
Sales   $ 3,331      $ 2,747      $ 7,584      $ 10,488   
Gross margin   $ 906      $ 611      $ 1,411      $ 5,455   

Oilfield solutions sales increased $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to the same period in 2020, due to a $0.5 million increase in surface use, right-of way and easement revenues and a $0.3 increase in produced water royalties, partially offset by a $0.2 million decrease in water sales. First half sales decreased $2.9 million compared to the same period in 2020, due to a $3.6 million decrease in water sales, partially offset by a $0.6 million increase in produced water royalty revenues and a $0.2 million increase in surface use, right-of way and easement revenues. Water sales recorded in the oilfield solutions segment continued to lag prior year results due to the negative economic effects from the COVID-19 pandemic, although we continue to see growth in oilfield activity in the Delaware Basin and expect water sales will improve in the second half of 2021.

Gross margin for the second quarter increased $0.3 million compared to the prior year as improved activity in the oilfield led to increased revenues from our surface use agreements and produced water royalty. First half 2021 gross margin decreased compared to the prior year as first quarter 2020 water sales were not affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan

In June 2021, we received notice that the Small Business Administration had remitted funds to our bank to fully repay our PPP loan and accrued interest. Accordingly, we recognized a gain of $10.1 million related to the forgiveness of the PPP loan and the associated accrued interest on the loan.

Senior Notes

In June 2021, we repaid the remaining $15.0 million of principal outstanding on our Series B Senior Notes due April 14, 2023 (the "Series B Senior Notes") and satisfied all obligations under the Amended and Restated Note Purchase Agreement, dated as of October 31, 2016, by and among the Company and each of the purchasers named therein (as amended, the "Note Purchase Agreement"). In connection with this repayment, the Company paid in aggregate approximately $15.6 million, which consisted of (i) $15.0 million of remaining aggregate principal amount of Series B Senior Notes, (ii) approximately $0.1 million of accrued interest and (iii) a "make-whole" premium of $0.5 million. As a result of the repayment, the Note Purchase Agreement was terminated.

Liquidity

Cash provided by operations was $32.3 million during the second quarter of 2021 and $51.4 million for the first half of 2021. Cash used in investing activities decreased to $0.6 million for the first half of 2021, as $6.6 million spent on capital investments during 2021 was mostly offset by $6.0 million in proceeds from the sale of land discussed above.

As of August 2, 2021, we had approximately $36 million in cash and cash equivalents, $10 million outstanding under our revolving credit facility, and $64.0 million available to borrow under our revolving credit facility.

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 income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) 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 Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Per Diluted Share

Adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share are calculated as net income (loss) or income (loss) per diluted share adjusted for certain items that impact the comparability of results from period to period, as set forth in the reconciliation below. Intrepid considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be useful because they allow for period-to-period comparisons of its operating results excluding items that Intrepid believes 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 income (loss) 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.
