Third Quarter Highlights

  • Implemented a new dividend policy to pay a US$0.20 per share annual dividend, payable quarterly.  A quarterly dividend payment of US$0.05 was declared with a record date of November 15, 2012 and a payment date of November 30, 2012;
  • Average availability of facility operations was strong at 99.1%; 
  • Portside's boiler turn down project is substantially complete and operating as expected.  The Portside condensing economizer is on schedule and on budget;
  • North Lake's upgrades are substantially complete and on budget. Performance testing and final check out of all systems is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2012.
  • Contract renewal discussions with the site host for Cokenergy continued. The current contract expires in October of 2013;
  • Harbor Coal volumes remain below normal due to low cost natural gas.

"The announcement of our new dividend policy improved the liquidity of the Company's shares," said John Prunkl, President and Chief Executive Officer of Primary Energy. "The transition to self-management has gone smoothly, and the corporate costs are about the same as the costs experienced under the prior third party manager arrangement.  For the short term, the renewal of the Cokenergy contract remains our primary focus."

Operational Highlights        
    Q3 2012   Q3 2011
         
Total Gross Electric Production Megawatt Hours (MWh) (4)   354,942   375,406

Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

The Company's revenue of $13.7 million in the third quarter of 2012 decreased $0.1 million, or 1.1%, compared with revenue of $13.8 million for the third quarter of 2011. The North Lake facility had reduced host operations during the third quarter of 2012 compared to the third quarter of 2011 which had a negative impact on Energy Service revenue of $0.2 million. This decrease was partially offset by increased revenue at the Portside facility associated with increased operating levels at the host site.

The Company's revenue of $40.4 million in the first nine months of 2012 increased $0.5 million, or 1.4%, compared with revenue of $39.9 million for the first nine months of 2011.  Revenue increased at the North Lake and Ironside facilities as a result of increased host operations in the current year.

Operations and maintenance expense for the third quarter of 2012 was $4.4 million compared to $3.2 million for the third quarter of 2011, an increase of $1.2 million or 40%.  The Company incurred periodic costs during the third quarter of 2012 comprised of $1.2 million for boiler retubing work and $0.2 million for ductwork repairs compared to periodic costs for the third quarter of 2011 totaling $0.4 million for boiler retubing work. In addition, the Company incurred $0.2 million of additional general operations and maintenance expenses during the quarter.

Operations and maintenance expense for the first nine months of 2012 was $12.8 million compared to $10.0 million for the first nine months of 2011, an increase of $2.8 million or 27.7%.  The Company incurred periodic costs for the first nine months of 2012 comprised of $3.3 million for boiler retubing work and $0.6 million for ductwork repairs compared to periodic costs for the first nine months of 2011 totaling $1.1 million for boiler retubing work.

Equity in earnings of the Harbor Coal joint venture for the third quarter of 2012 was $0.5 million compared to $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2011, a decrease of $0.5 million.  Equity in earnings of the Harbor Coal joint venture for the first nine months of 2012 was $1.8 million compared to $3.1 million for the first nine months of 2011, a decrease of $1.3 million.  The decreases noted are the result of reduced pulverized coal deliveries in favor of natural gas injection due to its low cost.

Operating income for the third quarter of 2012 was $1.2 million compared to $3.5 million for the third quarter of 2011, a decrease of $2.3 million.  Operating loss for the first nine months of 2012 was $1.9 million compared to operating income of $5.0 million for the first nine months of 2011, a decrease of $6.9 million. The largest driver impacting year to date results was the $6.0 million fee paid to terminate the Management Agreement at time of the buy-out of the non-controlling interest.

Net loss and comprehensive loss for the third quarter of 2012 was $0.2 million compared to net income and comprehensive income of $0.4 million for the third quarter of 2011, a decrease of $0.6 million.  Net loss and comprehensive loss for the first nine months of 2012 was $5.1 million compared to $2.5 million for the first nine months of 2011, an increase of $2.6 million.

1As used herein, EBITDA means earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and certain other adjustments. EBITDA is reconciled to net (loss) income and comprehensive (loss) income in the table below.  EBITDA is not a recognized measure under IFRS and does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS. Therefore, EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

2As used herein, references to Adjusted EBITDA are to EBITDA as adjusted for certain non-recurring adjustments for major maintenance/outage work expenses, management agreement termination fee and non-cash stock based compensation that represent recorded expenses based on specific circumstances and are not expected to be part of the Company's ongoing business activity. Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled to net income (loss) and comprehensive income (loss) in the table below. Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized measure under IFRS and does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS. Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

3As used herein, Free Cash Flow means net cash provided by operating activities as adjusted for capital expenditures.  Free Cash Flow is not a recognized measure under IFRS and does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS. Therefore, Free Cash Flow may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

4Total Gross Electric Production means the aggregate amount of electricity produced by all of the Company's facilities during the period. The amount is gross generation and is not reduced by internal electric usage of the facilities' auxiliary equipment. The unit of measure is megawatt hours (MWh).  Due to the fixed and variable nature of customer contracts, MWh production cannot be directly tied to financial performance.

5Total Thermal Energy Delivered means the aggregate amount of heat energy contained in the steam and heated water delivered to customers by all of the Company's facilities during the period. The unit of measure is million of British Thermal Units (MMBTU). Due to the fixed and variable nature of customer contracts, MMBTU production cannot be directly tied to financial performance.

6Harbor Coal Utilization is a factor that incorporates the production level of a blast furnace and the amount of coal utilization per unit of blast furnace production as compared to a reference blast furnace production level and coal utilization rate per unit of blast furnace production. The measurement unit is a ratio expressed as a percentage.

Management believes that EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Total Gross Electric Production, Total Thermal Energy Delivered and Harbor Coal Utilization provide useful supplemental information regarding the performance of the Company, facilitate comparisons of historical periods and are indicative of the Company's operating results.  Note, however, that these items are performance measures only, and do not provide any measure of the Company's cash flow or liquidity, and are not a substitute for IFRS financial measures.

Non-IFRS Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with IFRS. The Company's management also evaluates and makes operating decisions using various other measures.  Three such measures are EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow, which are non-IFRS financial measures. We believe these measures provide useful supplemental information regarding the performance of the Company's business.
