Dakota Plains Holdings, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2013 Financial Results Positive Earnings as Crude Oil Volumes Grow Across All Segments Expansion of Pioneer Crude By Rail Terminal on Schedule PR Newswire WAYZATA, Minn., May 9, 2013 WAYZATA, Minn., May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dakota Plains Holdings, Inc. ("Dakota Plains" and "DAKP"), (OTC: DAKP), a provider of crude oil midstream services that include marketing, transloading and trucking in the Bakken region, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2013. First Quarter 2013 Operational and Financial Highlights oNet Income was $0.6 million compared to a loss of $(15.9) million for the same period in 2012. oAdjusted EBITDA was $2.4 million compared sequentially to $1.8 million and $2.4 million for the same period in 2012. oJV transloading volumes were 2.4 million barrels of oil, an increase of 15% sequentially and 45% compared to the same period in 2012. oJV marketing volumes were 2.6 million barrels of oil, an increase of 30% sequentially and 75% compared to the same period in 2012. oJV trucking volumes, which commenced in the fourth quarter of 2012, were 1.1 million barrels of oil. oThe Pioneer Terminal expansion commenced on March 25 and will increase the throughput capacity to 80,000 barrels per day by year-end 2013. oRestricted cash totals $29 million, a portion of which will be utilized for funding of the Pioneer Terminal expansion. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Craig McKenzie, said, "Demand for the Company's three business segments continues to exceed our expectations. The first quarter operational performance was our best to date, and our fifth consecutive quarter of growth. Our trucking segment continues to build scale with our fleet expanding in the quarter to 14 trucks. Profit contribution for transloading and trucking met expectations, while marketing was below our historic average. With Pioneer on track for year-end, we will expand throughput capacity by 2014 and be well-positioned for additional lines of business at the terminal." First Quarter 2013 Financial Results The Company experienced net income of $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to a net loss of $(15.9) million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. Net income for the first quarter was driven by an increase in throughput crude oil volumes. The net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was primarily due to higher interest expense related to the change in fair value of the additional payment provision in the Company's outstanding promissory notes. General and administrative expenses were $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to $0.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The increase was primarily due to additional staff hired and related expenses. Of the $1.4 million expense, non-cash and one-time provisions represent approximately $0.5 million. Income from the Company's investment in the transloading joint venture was $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The transloading joint venture experienced an increase in volume, as first quarter volume was 2.4 million barrels of oil compared to 1.7 million barrels of oil for the three months ended March 31, 2012, a 45% increase. Cost of revenue was higher due to the increased volume and the higher fee per barrel by the Company's new contractor, however this was offset by the reduction in general and administrative expenses, in particular professional fees. Income from the Company's investment in the marketing joint venture was $1.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to $1.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. Volumes for the marketing joint venture increased, as first quarter volume was 2.6 million barrels of oil compared to 1.5 million barrels of oil for the three months ended March 31, 2012, a 75% increase, but margins contracted. Income from the Company's investment in the trucking joint venture was $62,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, with 1.1 million of barrels hauled. The trucking joint venture increased its trucking fleet to 14 trucks for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The trucking joint venture was not operational during the first quarter of 2012. The Company recognized rental income of $95,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to $80,279 for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The increase in rental income is due to the June 2012 and January 2013 renegotiations of the lease agreement with Dakota Petroleum Transport Solutions, LLC. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013 was $2.4 million compared to $2.4 million for the first quarter of 2012. Adjusted EBITDA Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure. A reconciliation of this measure to its most directly comparable GAAP measure is included in the accompanying financial tables found later in this release. Management believes the use of this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful information to investors to gain an overall understanding of current financial performance. Specifically, management believes the non-GAAP results included herein provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses and gains and losses on the extinguishment of debt that management believes are not indicative of Dakota Plains' core operating results. In addition, this non-GAAP financial measure is used by management for budgeting and forecasting as well as subsequently measuring Dakota Plains' performance, and management believes it is providing investors with a financial measure that most closely aligns to its internal measurement processes.
