CST Brands, Inc. Key Developments

CST Brands, Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015

CST Brands, Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the three month period ended March 31, 2015, the Company reported net income of $14 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, primarily driven by a significant increase in motor fuel gross profit during the quarter. Net income was $11 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the comparable period in 2014. Reflected in net income are acquisition expenses, legal expenses and professional fees of $5 million, net of tax, and a gain on the sale of assets of $3 million, net of tax, related to store divestitures for the three month period ended March 31, 2015. Excluding these items, net income would have been $16 million, or $0.20 per diluted share. Operating income was $31 million for the first quarter 2015 compared to $25 million for the first quarter 2014. EBITDA was $66 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2015 compared to $57 million for the same period in 2014. The increase in operating income and EBITDA was due primarily to an increase in motor fuel gross profit of $19 million and an increase in merchandise gross profit of $5 million in the U.S., partially offset by increases in operating expenses and general and administrative expenses of $7 million and $14 million, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2014. Operating revenues totaled $2.2 billion for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $3.0 billion for the same period of 2014. The decrease in operating Revenue was primarily due to a decrease in the per gallon average selling price for both the U.S. Retail and Canadian Retail segments. For the quarter ended March 31, 2015, cash flow provided by operating activities totaled $58 million. Total capital expenditures, excluding acquisitions, for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 were $50 million and $43 million, respectively. Income before income tax expense was $22 million against $16 million a year ago.
