See below for further discussion of earnings adjusted for special items.

"MPC's fourth quarter was a strong finish to a year in which we earned in excess of $2 billion," said President and Chief Executive Officer Gary R. Heminger. "Our 2013 earnings reflect our ability to consistently meet energy market needs through our logistical flexibility and relentless focus on top-tier operational performance."

Heminger said that in 2013 MPC continued to strengthen its ability to capitalize on North America's shifting energy landscape. "In addition to investing in our transportation and retail segments, we completed our acquisition of the Galveston Bay refinery in February and continued to make margin-enhancing investments in our refining system," Heminger said. "While refining will remain our largest source of earnings and cash flow, we will augment this through expanded investments in midstream and retail in the years ahead."

In 2013, MPC increased its emphasis on these more stable earnings sources, Heminger said. "We executed our first drop-down of assets to MPLX LP, the master limited partnership we created in late 2012, and announced planned equity investments in Enbridge Energy Partners L.P.'s Sandpiper and Southern Access Extension pipeline projects, which will enable MPC to participate in the transportation of increasing volumes of North American crude oil into our Midwestern refining region," he noted. "We also expanded the marketing footprint of Speedway, our retail subsidiary, to nine states from seven, and we will continue leveraging Speedway's strong business model to pursue growth opportunities within the convenience store industry."

Looking to the future, Heminger pointed out that MPC's capital expenditures will be focused on growing the midstream and retail businesses over the 2014-2016 period. He expects these midstream and retail capital expenditures to total approximately $4 billion, a $2.3 billion increase over the previous three-year period.

While investing in the company's growth, Heminger noted that MPC also returned $126 million to shareholders in the form of dividends and $452 million in share repurchases during the fourth quarter, and $484 million in dividends and $2.8 billion in share repurchases during full-year 2013. "This continues our commitment to balance investments in the business with return of capital to our shareholders," Heminger commented.

Segment Results

Total income from operations was $1.01 billion in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $3.43 billion for full-year 2013, compared with $1.19 billion and $5.35 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012 and full-year 2012, respectively.

Refining & Marketing

Refining & Marketing segment income from operations was $971 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $3.21 billion for full-year 2013, compared with $1.14 billion and $5.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012 and full-year 2012, respectively.

The $168 million decrease in Refining & Marketing segment income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 was primarily due to narrower crude oil differentials and higher turnaround costs, partially offset by higher crack spreads, more favorable net product price realizations and higher sales volumes.

The $1.89 billion decrease in Refining & Marketing segment income from operations for the full-year 2013 compared to 2012 was primarily due to narrower crude oil differentials and lower net product price realizations, partially offset by higher sales volumes.

The West Texas Intermediate/Light Louisiana Sweet (LLS) crude oil differentials narrowed by $17.72 per barrel when compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 and by $8.19 per barrel when compared to the full-year 2012. In addition, the sweet/sour crude oil differentials narrowed by approximately $4 per barrel for the quarter and full-year 2013. The Chicago and U.S. Gulf Coast LLS 6-3-2-1 blended crack spread increased to $6.82 per barrel and $6.97 per barrel for the fourth quarter and full-year 2013, respectively, from $3.80 per barrel and $6.71 per barrel for the fourth quarter and full-year 2012.

Refined product sales volume was 2.14 million barrels per day (bpd) and 2.08 million bpd for the fourth quarter and full-year 2013, respectively, compared with 1.69 million bpd and 1.6 million bpd for the fourth quarter and full-year 2012. Higher refinery throughputs and sales volumes were attributable in large part to the Galveston Bay refinery, which MPC acquired on Feb. 1, 2013.

[NOTE: Starting in the fourth quarter of 2013, direct operating costs are no longer included in the calculated Refining & Marketing gross margin, and this statistic is now based on total refinery throughput. All prior periods presented have been recalculated to reflect a consistent approach. In addition, select refinery throughput, refined product yield and direct operating cost information is now being reported prospectively both on a consolidated and regional basis.]

Speedway

Speedway segment income from operations was $83 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $375 million for full-year 2013, compared with $77 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $310 million for full-year 2012, representing record annual earnings for the business. The increase in segment income for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 is primarily the result of a higher merchandise gross margin, partially offset by a decrease in the gasoline and distillate gross margin. The increase for full-year 2013 compared to full-year 2012 is primarily due to higher gasoline and distillate gross margins and a higher merchandise gross margin, partially offset by higher operating expenses related to an increase in the number of convenience stores.

Pipeline Transportation

Pipeline Transportation segment income from operations, including 100 percent of MPLX LP's operations, was $47 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $210 million for full-year 2013, compared with $72 million and $216 million for the fourth quarter and full-year 2012, respectively. The decrease in Pipeline Transportation segment income for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 was primarily due to a decrease in pipeline equity affiliate income and higher depreciation and operating expenses. The decrease in full-year 2013 segment income from operations was primarily due to higher operating expenses and depreciation and lower pipeline equity affiliate income, partially offset by higher transportation revenue.

Corporate and Special Items

Corporate and other unallocated expenses of $81 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $271 million for full-year 2013 were $10 million lower than in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $65 million lower than in the full-year 2012. The decreases were primarily due to lower unallocated employee benefit expenses and lower employee incentive compensation expenses.

During the fourth quarter of 2013 and full-year 2013, MPC recorded pretax pension settlement expenses of $12 million and $95 million, respectively, resulting from the level of employee lump-sum retirement distributions occurring during the year. This compares to pretax pension settlement expenses of $8 million and $124 million for the fourth quarter and full-year 2012, respectively.  

Strong Financial Position and Liquidity

On Dec. 31, 2013, the company had $2.3 billion in cash and cash equivalents, an unused $2.5 billion revolving credit agreement and a $1.3 billion unused trade receivables securitization facility that was increased and extended in the fourth quarter. The company's credit facilities and cash position should provide it with sufficient flexibility to meet its day-to-day operational needs and continue its balanced approach to investing in the business and returning capital to shareholders. As of Dec. 31, 2013, the company's strong financial position was reflected by its debt-to-total capital ratio of 23 percent.

References to Earnings
References to earnings mean net income attributable to MPC from the statements of income. Unless otherwise indicated, references to earnings, earnings adjusted for special items and earnings per share are MPC's share after excluding amounts attributable to noncontrolling interests.

 

Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to earnings determined in accordance with GAAP, MPC has provided supplemental "earnings adjusted for special items," a non-GAAP financial measure that facilitates comparisons to earnings forecasts prepared by stock analysts and other third parties. Such forecasts generally exclude the effects of items that are considered non-recurring, are difficult to predict or to measure in advance or that are not directly related to MPC's ongoing operations. A reconciliation between GAAP earnings and "earnings adjusted for special items" is provided in a table on page 1 of this release. "Earnings adjusted for special items" should not be considered a substitute for earnings as reported in accordance with GAAP. We believe certain investors use "earnings adjusted for special items" to evaluate MPC's financial performance between periods. Management may also use "earnings adjusted for special items" to compare MPC's performance to certain competitors.

 

Forward-looking Statements
