Oil Refineries Announces Results for Third Quarter and First Nine Months 2012



Oil Refineries Announces Results for Third Quarter and First Nine Months 2012

  PR Newswire

  HAIFA, Israel, November 21, 2012

HAIFA, Israel, November 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Oil Refineries Ltd. (TASE: ORL.TA)   (hereinafter   " the Group, "   " ORL " )
, Israel's largest integrated refining and petrochemical group, announced
today its financial results for the third quarter and first nine months ending
September 30, 2012.  Results are reported in US Dollars and under
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).  

Key 2012 Third Quarter Highlights

  * Adjusted refining margin totaled $5.3 per barrel, as compared with the
    average Reuter's quoted Mediterranean Ural Cracking Margin of $5.1 per
    barrel for the third quarter of this year.  The Group continues to
    generate higher refining margins than the other comparable refiners in the
    area.
  * Consolidated operating income totaled $25 million compared with a loss of
    $12 million, in the corresponding period last year.
  * Adjusted consolidated operating income in the Sectors totaled $24 million
    compared with $3 million, in the corresponding period last year.
  * Consolidated EBITDA totaled $61 million compared with $21 million, in the
    corresponding period last year
  * Adjusted consolidated EBITDA totaled $53 million compared with $29
    million, in the corresponding period last year.
  * Net loss totaled $21 million compared with a net loss of $38 million, in
    the corresponding period last year.
  * The hydrocracker facility is at an advanced stage of its test runs, in
    anticipation of its full commercial activation and running.

Mr. Pinhas Buchris, CEO of Oil Refineries :  "The Group presents improved
third quarter results compared with the third quarter of 2011 and the second
quarter of 2012. This improvement can be seen in most of our Sector
activities, especially in the fuels and petrochemicals segment. In the third
quarter of 2012 the Group generated an adjusted EBITDA of $53 million and the
adjusted operating income in our Sectors totaled $24 million. However, higher
financing costs and accounting effects caused us to end the quarter with a net
loss of $21 million.  In our progress with the hydrocracker facility, we
continue to work diligently to test run the various and complex facilities
with the intention of meeting the targets we set out for ourselves."

Mr. Buchris added, "We are close to reaping the benefits of the strategic plan
that was developed and implemented by our team in recent years. The completion
of most of the plan is expected to yield results in the near future during
which we will benefit from created synergies and the contribution of our
investments.  We believe that in the coming quarters we will see the impact of
the many managerial changes we carried out, which will lead to the Group
becoming more efficient and profitable, while gradually lowering our debt
levels."

Additional Key Points

  * Continuation of the strategy to increase profitability and turn ORL into a
    globally competitive organization, including carrying out an investment
    program, solidifying the new organizational structure, continued
    implementation of business processes, and improving the interface between
    the different business units.
  * Investments program:

       * The hydrocracker is currently in its final test run in advance of its
         full commercial activation, which will occur, according to the
         Group's estimates, in December 2012.  Up to the end of the quarter
         the Group had invested $446 million and took on additional
         commitments for the implementation consisting of $23 million.  As of
         the date of this report, the Group does not expect any significant
         deviation from the prescribed budget project.
       * Synergy projects: In January 2012, the Group undertook a $45 million
         synergetic investment project for a CCR gas utilization facility
         which will yield optimal extraction of existing streams in the
         refinery and for which an estimated cash flow of $30 million a year
         is expected, working on the basis that a full gas supply is
         available.  In addition, the Group invested $90 million for
         increasing propylene production capacity and this is expected to
         bring in an estimated cash flow of $55 million a year. In order to
         continue with this investment project, the Group is currently waiting
         for the granting of the necessary permits in order to establish it
         and the Group hopes to receive these permits soon.  

  * Environmental responsibility was defined as a strategic goal for the Group
    in which it invests considerable resources, both financial and human
    resources, to reduce the Group's environmental impact, primarily out of
    concern for the public's environmental safety. In recent years, ORL
    invested up to $161 million dollars in this area in order to meet the most
    advanced international standards.  
  * The Group continued its commitment to the community, with an emphasis on
    the advancement of education and youth projects.

The adjusted refining margin for the third quarter of 2012 was $5.3 per barrel
compared with the average Mediterranean Ural Cracking Margin quoted by Reuters
of $5.1 per barrel. This is in comparison with the adjusted refining margin
for the third quarter of 2011, which was $2.8 per barrel as compared with the
benchmark margin of $1.2 per barrel.  

Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2012 totaled $53 million, compared
with $29 million in the corresponding period last year. The increase can be
primarily attributed to an improvement in margins and improvements in the
refining and petrochemical sectors.

a loss of $3 million in the corresponding quarter last year.

Net consolidated financing expenses amounted to $48 million in the reporting
period compared with $21 million in the corresponding period last year.  The
increase is primarily attributable to an increase in accounting effects.

Consolidated loss in the reporting period totaled $21 million, compared with a
loss of $38 million in the corresponding period last year.

The adjusted   refining margin for the first nine months of 2012 was $5.2 per
barrel compared with the average Mediterranean Ural Cracking Margin quoted by
Reuters of $4.6 per barrel. This is in comparison with the adjusted refining
margin for the first nine months of 2011, which was $2.6 per barrel as
compared with the benchmark margin of $1.1 per barrel.  

Adjusted   c onsolidated EBITDA in the reporting period of 2012 totaled $93
million, compared with $110 million in the corresponding period last year. The
decline can be primarily attributed to a decrease in the petrochemical sector
offset by an increase in refining margins.

Cash flow from current operations for the reporting period totaled $485
million, as compared with a negative cash flow of $50 million in the
corresponding period last year. The increase is primarily attributable to an
increase in assets and liabilities as a result of agreements with crude oil
suppliers for longer credit terms.

A djusted consolidated operating   income for the sectors in the reporting
period totaled $5 million compared with $31 million is the corresponding
period last year.

Net consolidated financing expenses amounted to $114 million in the reporting
period compared with $69 million in the corresponding period last year.

Consolidated loss in the reporting period totaled $126 million, compared with
a loss of $1 million in the corresponding period last year.
