SAN ANTONIO--()--CST Brands, Inc. (NYSE: CST), one of the largest independent retailers of motor fuels and convenience merchandise in North America, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017.

Kim Lubel, Chairman and CEO of CST Brands, said, "As we anticipate the completion of the merger with Circle K Stores, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc., I am proud of what our team has accomplished since becoming a public company four years ago. Since 2013, we have opened 165 new stores in the U.S. and Canada, made several key acquisitions to further support our organic growth strategy, and amplified our proprietary fresh food and private label choices inside our stores. Above all, we grew shareholder value by increasing the stock price of CST by 60% over our four years of operations, with the pending merger with Circle K expected to close in the second quarter.”

First Quarter Results

For the three month period ended March 31, 2017, the Company reported net income of $3 million, or $0.04 per diluted share compared to net income of $19 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, for the same period in 2016. The decline in net income was primarily attributable to a decline in motor fuel gross profit in the U.S., which was partially offset by an increase in merchandise and services gross profit in both the U.S. and Canada and an increase in motor fuel gross profit in Canada. Impacting net income for the first quarter of 2017 is approximately $9 million, net of tax, of merger-related fees. For the three month period ended March 31, 2016, included in net income are acquisition expenses, legal expenses and professional fees of $3 million, net of tax, and a gain on the sale of assets of $1 million, net of tax. Excluding these items, net income would have been approximately $12 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, and $21 million, or $0.27 per diluted share for the three month periods ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively (Non-GAAP measures, including EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share, are described and are reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures in the Supplemental Disclosure section of this release).

Motor fuel gross profit in the U.S. for the first quarter of 2017 was $58 million versus $75 million in the same quarter of 2016. This represented a decline of 23%, as the Company experienced weaker fuel margins in the first quarter of 2017 when compared to the first quarter of 2016. The decline in motor fuel gross profit was primarily attributable to a decrease in motor fuel gross profit, on a per gallon basis ("cents per gallon" or "CPG"), decreasing from 15.4 CPG in the first quarter of 2016 to 12.1 CPG in the first quarter of 2017. This was the result of higher wholesale motor fuel prices. The decline in fuel margins was partially offset by a 1% increase in total motor fuel gallons sold, resulting from the Company's expanded core network. This volume increase was achieved despite the divestment of stores in California and Wyoming that was completed during the third quarter 2016. Core same store motor fuel sales, on a gallons per store per day basis, declined 3% during the first quarter of 2017, primarily as a reflection of softer demand due to economic conditions in certain areas where the Company operates and a slight increase in the average retail price of motor fuel per gallon compared to the same period of last year.

U.S. merchandise and services gross profit increased 1% when compared to the first quarter of 2016, primarily driven by an overall increase in merchandise and services sales and gross profits in the Company's U.S. core and New-to-Industry (“NTI”) store sales, aided by acquisition and organic growth. Core same store merchandise and services sales per store per day declined 2% during the first quarter of 2017, due to a decrease in customer count comparison, primarily early in the quarter when compared to the high customer count created by a record setting lotto jackpot in early 2016.

In Canada, the Company reported a strong quarter with total gross profit of $94 million compared to $83 million for the first quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 13%. Motor fuel gross profit increased $9 million or 20% when compared to the first quarter of 2016. The improvement in motor fuel gross profit was driven by increases in motor fuel gross margin across the Company's Canadian retail sites and in volume at the company operated and Cardlock network, which the Company believes is reflective of solid economic indicators in the Quebec and Ontario markets. On a same-store basis, motor fuel gallons, on a per site per day basis, increased 2% when compared to the first quarter of 2016.

Canadian merchandise and services gross profit increased $2 million or 11% when compared to the first quarter of 2016. The increase in merchandise and services gross profit was driven by an increase in store customer count as well as an increase in the network’s car wash business. On a same-store basis, merchandise and services sales per site per day increased 4% when compared to the first quarter of 2016.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

For the three months ended March 31, 2017, cash flow provided by operating activities totaled $48 million. Cash flow used in investing activities was $38 million, primarily related to capital expenditures. Total capital expenditures, excluding acquisitions, for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 were $40 million and $63 million, respectively. Cash flow provided by financing activities was $30 million, including net proceeds on CST Brands' revolving credit facility of $45 million and payments of $19 million on CST Brands' term loan. Additionally, there was no effect of foreign currency translation to cash. Overall, cash increased by $40 million. Cash, as of March 31, 2017, was $176 million.

As of May 4, 2017, approximately $89 million was available for future borrowings under CST Brands' revolving credit facility.

Basis of Presentation

The CST Brands Statements of Income are presented on a consolidated basis; however, the amounts presented account for CST’s investment in CrossAmerica under the equity method of accounting. CrossAmerica is a consolidated variable interest entity; however, management reviews the results of operations of CrossAmerica under the equity method of accounting because of CST’s 20.2% interest of CrossAmerica’s outstanding units. Net income and earnings per share attributable to CST are unchanged under the equity method of accounting from consolidating CrossAmerica. CST’s operating segments on the following pages are presented before intercompany eliminations with CrossAmerica. Therefore, the U.S. Retail segment includes in cost of sales the wholesale fuel costs for sites supplied by CrossAmerica and operating expenses include rent from sites leased from CrossAmerica. Consolidated financial statements that include CrossAmerica are provided in CST Brands’ March 31, 2017 Form 10-Q.

Withdrawal of Guidance and Conference Call

As previously reported, on August 21, 2016, CST Brands entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Circle K Stores Inc., a Texas corporation (“Circle K”). Under the terms of the merger agreement, CST will be merged with a subsidiary of Circle K. Circle K is a wholly owned subsidiary of Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. CST stockholders have approved the merger agreement. The closing of the merger remains subject to the receipt of regulatory approvals. CST and Couche-Tard have been continuing to work cooperatively with regulators in their review of the merger and, based on what CST considers to be the substantial progress made to date, while there can be no assurances as to timing, CST continues to expect that it will meet the previously stated goal of completing the merger during the current CST calendar quarter (i.e. on or before June 30, 2017).

In light of the pending merger, CST will not be issuing financial guidance regarding the Company’s projected financial performance and will not be hosting a first quarter earnings conference call.

All NTIs are core stores and, accordingly, are included in the core system operating statistics. For the period of February 1 to March 31, 2016, Flash Foods stores were classified as non-core. Effective April 1, 2016, the Flash Foods stores are included in the U.S. Retail Segment’s core-store operations. Accordingly, their operations are excluded from the core system operating statistics for the first quarter of 2016.
(d) Includes $0.05 per gallon of wholesale fuel distribution profit.
(e) CrossAmerica owns a 17.5% limited partner equity interest in CST Fuel Supply, which is the sole owner of CST Marketing & Supply, which distributes motor fuel to our retail operations at a net $0.05 per gallon margin. A separate entity, Fuel South LLC, distributes motor fuel to the Flash Foods retail operations.
(f) The same-store information consists of aggregated individual store results for all stores in operation substantially throughout both periods presented. Stores that were temporarily closed for a brief period of time during the periods being compared remain in the same-store sales comparison.

Supplemental Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Information

EBITDA is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure that represents net income before income taxes, interest expense and depreciation, amortization and accretion expense. EBITDAR is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure that further adjusts EBITDA by excluding minimum rent expense. Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share remove certain discrete items from the U.S. GAAP calculation that did not occur during both periods being compared. The Company believes that EBITDA, EBITDAR, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are useful to investors and creditors in evaluating its operating performance because (a) they facilitate management’s ability to measure the operating performance of the Company's business on a consistent basis by excluding the impact of items not directly resulting from its retail operations and certain discrete items that did not occur in both periods being compared; and (b) securities analysts and other interested parties use such calculations as a measure of financial performance. EBITDA, EBITDAR, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share do not purport to be alternatives to net income and diluted earnings per share as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. EBITDA, EBITDAR, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results of operations as reported under U.S. GAAP.

The following table presents a reconciliation of CST’s net income to EBITDA and EBITDAR for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 and adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per common share for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 (in millions except per share data or as otherwise noted):

(a) The CST Brands, Inc. Statements of Income are presented on a consolidated basis; however, the amounts presented in the table above account for CST’s investment in CrossAmerica under the equity method of accounting.
