During the third quarter 2022, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow increased by 73% and 67%, respectively, as compared to the third quarter 2021. Each metric, as well as the Distribution Coverage Ratio, benefited from the fuel gross profit performance in both the wholesale and retail segments, as well as the growth of the organization as a result of the acquisition of assets from 7-Eleven during the second half of 2021.

Non-GAAP measures used in this release include EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distribution Coverage Ratio. These Non-GAAP measures are further described and reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP measures in the Supplemental Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures section of this release.

Wholesale Segment

Key Operating MetricsQ3 2022Q3 2021
Wholesale segment gross profit$56.8M$48.2M
Wholesale motor fuel gallons distributed338.1M354.6M
Average wholesale gross profit per gallon$0.125$0.096

During the third quarter 2022, CrossAmerica’s wholesale segment gross profit increased 18% compared to the third quarter 2021. This was driven by an increase in motor fuel gross profit resulting from a 30% increase in fuel margin per gallon, partially offset by a 5% decline in wholesale volume distributed. The Partnership’s wholesale fuel margin benefited from its ongoing execution of strategic initiatives, increased volume to CrossAmerica’s company operated retail sites and higher variable margins during the quarter. Higher wholesale variable margins were due to greater market volatility in the third quarter 2022 as compared to the third quarter 2021. CrossAmerica also benefited from higher terms discounts as a result of higher fuel prices during the quarter as compared to the same period in 2021. Wholesale volume distributed declined primarily due to lower volume in the CrossAmerica base business, partially offset from the acquisition of assets from 7-Eleven.

*Includes only company operated retail sites

For the third quarter 2022, the retail segment generated a 102% increase in gross profit compared to the third quarter 2021 due to increased retail fuel gallons sold, higher fuel margins and higher merchandise gross profit.

The retail segment sold 126.7 million of retail fuel gallons during the third quarter 2022, a 15% increase over the third quarter 2021. This increased volume resulted from the increase in company operated sites as a result of the acquisition of assets from 7-Eleven, which occurred primarily during the third quarter 2021. Same store fuel volume for the third quarter 2022 declined 7% from 49.5 million gallons during the third quarter 2021 to 45.8 million gallons. The retail segment generated $22.5 million of additional motor fuel gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2022, as compared to the same period in 2021 due to greater total motor fuel gallons distributed and higher fuel margins per gallon.

CrossAmerica’s merchandise gross profit and other revenue increased due to the increase in company operated sites driven by the acquisition of assets from 7-Eleven, which occurred primarily during the third quarter 2021. Merchandise gross profit percentage increased from 26.7% to 27.1% with same store merchandise sales excluding cigarettes increasing approximately 2% for the third quarter 2022 when compared to the third quarter 2021.

On August 24, 2022, CrossAmerica entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with Community Service Stations, Inc., pursuant to which the Partnership agreed to purchase certain assets from Community Service Stations, Inc. for a purchase price of $27.5 million plus working capital.

The acquisition is subject to customary conditions to closing. CrossAmerica expects the transaction to close during the fourth quarter of 2022. It is anticipated that the acquisition will be financed with cash on hand and/or undrawn capacity under the CAPL Credit Facility.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, CrossAmerica sold one and ten properties for $0.2 million and $4.0 million in proceeds, resulting in net gains of an insignificant amount and $0.9 million, respectively.

(b) The decrease in the independent dealer site count was primarily attributable to loss of contracts, most of which were lower margin, partially offset by the increase in independent dealer sites as a result of the real estate rationalization effort and the resulting reclassification of the sites from a lessee dealer or commission site to an independent dealer site when CrossAmerica continues to supply the sites after divestiture.
(c) The decreases in the lessee dealer and commission agent site counts were primarily attributable to the real estate rationalization effort.
(d) The increase in the company operated site count was primarily attributable to the company operated sites from 7-Eleven, which occurred primarily during the third quarter 2021.

Supplemental Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

CrossAmerica uses the non-GAAP financial measures EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distribution Coverage Ratio. EBITDA represents net income before deducting interest expense, income taxes and depreciation, amortization and accretion (which includes certain impairment charges). Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA as further adjusted to exclude equity-based compensation expense, gains or losses on dispositions and lease terminations, net and certain discrete acquisition related costs, such as legal and other professional fees, separation benefit costs and certain other discrete non-cash items arising from purchase accounting. Distributable Cash Flow represents Adjusted EBITDA less cash interest expense, sustaining capital expenditures and current income tax expense. The Distribution Coverage Ratio is computed by dividing Distributable Cash Flow by distributions paid.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distribution Coverage Ratio are used as supplemental financial measures by management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors and lenders. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used to assess CrossAmerica’s financial performance without regard to financing methods, capital structure or income taxes and the ability to incur and service debt and to fund capital expenditures. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is used to assess the operating performance of the Partnership’s business on a consistent basis by excluding the impact of items which do not result directly from the wholesale distribution of motor fuel, the leasing of real property, or the day to day operations of CrossAmerica’s retail site activities. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distribution Coverage Ratio are also used to assess the ability to generate cash sufficient to make distributions to CrossAmerica’s unitholders.

CrossAmerica believes the presentation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distribution Coverage Ratio provides useful information to investors in assessing the financial condition and results of operations. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distribution Coverage Ratio should not be considered alternatives to net income or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distribution Coverage Ratio have important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some but not all items that affect net income. Additionally, because EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distribution Coverage Ratio may be defined differently by other companies in the industry, CrossAmerica’s definitions may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility.

The following table presents reconciliations of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Distributable Cash Flow to net income, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, for each of the periods indicated (in thousands, except for per unit amounts):

  Three Months Ended September 30,  Nine Months Ended September 30, 
  2022  2021  2022  2021 
Net income (a) $27,593  $8,852  $46,606  $9,674 
Interest expense  8,351   4,928   22,333   12,295 
Income tax expense (benefit)  3,815   (1,065)  1,843   (1,664)
Depreciation, amortization and accretion expense  21,329   19,118   61,523   56,732 
EBITDA  61,088   31,833   132,305   77,037 
Equity-based employee and director compensation expense  654   342   1,608   1,096 
Loss (gain) on dispositions and lease terminations, net  318   (426)  620   (375)
Acquisition-related costs (b)  107   4,141   985   8,502 
Adjusted EBITDA  62,167   35,890   135,518   86,260 
Cash interest expense  (7,668)  (4,267)  (20,280)  (11,113)
Sustaining capital expenditures (c)  (1,974)  (975)  (5,191)  (3,407)
Current income tax expense  (1,656)  (214)  (2,519)  (548)
Distributable Cash Flow $50,869  $30,434  $107,528  $71,192 
Distributions paid  19,913   19,894   59,713   59,659 
Distribution Coverage Ratio (d) 2.55x  1.53x  1.80x  1.19x 

(a) Beginning in the second quarter of 2022, CrossAmerica reconciled Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income rather than to Net income available to limited partners. The difference between Net income and Net income available to limited partners is that, beginning in the second quarter of 2022, the accretion of preferred membership interests issued in late March 2022 is a deduction from Net income in computing Net income available to limited partners. Because Adjusted EBITDA is used to assess our financial performance, without regard to capital structure, CrossAmerica believes Adjusted EBITDA should be reconciled with Net Income, so that the calculation isn’t impacted by the accretion of preferred membership interests. This approach is comparable to the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net income available to limited partners in past periods, as the Partnership has not recorded accretion of preferred membership interests in past periods.
(b) Relates to certain discrete acquisition related costs, such as legal and other professional fees, separation benefit costs and certain purchase accounting adjustments associated with recently acquired businesses.
(c) Under the Partnership Agreement, sustaining capital expenditures are capital expenditures made to maintain CrossAmerica's long-term operating income or operating capacity. Examples of sustaining capital expenditures are those made to maintain existing contract volumes, including payments to renew existing distribution contracts, or to maintain the sites in conditions suitable to lease, such as parking lot or roof replacement/renovation, or to replace equipment required to operate the existing business.
(d) In 2022, CrossAmerica updated its calculation of its Distribution Coverage Ratio to divide Distributable Cash Flow by distributions paid, whereas in prior periods, the Distribution Coverage Ratio was calculated as Distributable Cash Flow divided by the weighted-average diluted common units and then CrossAmerica divided that result by distributions paid per limited partner unit.
