"With inflation above its 40 year high, consumers need affordable every-day-low-prices on goods and services now more than ever," said President and CEO Andrew Clyde. "Q2 results affirm that Murphy USA is one of the top value brands that consumers trust to meet their needs. With our advantaged business model, we continued to profitably take share on non-discretionary fuel purchases while growing per-store sales and contribution across categories. Notably, momentum accelerated into July as customers benefit from falling fuel prices while employee engagement is supported by a special summer incentive program."

Net income and Adjusted EBITDA for Q2 2022 were higher versus the prior-year period, due primarily to improved contribution margins from both fuel and merchandise, partially offset by higher payment fees, higher store operating expenses, and increased general and administrative expenses. All amounts reported for the year-to-date 2021 period include the consolidated results of our wholly-owned subsidiary, Quick Chek Corporation ("QuickChek") from January 29, 2021 (the date of acquisition).

Total fuel contribution dollars of $422.9 million increased 33.6%, or $106.3 million, in Q2 of 2022 compared to Q2 of 2021 on favorable pricing and higher retail volumes sold. Retail fuel contribution dollars increased $76.1 million, or 31.1%, to $320.8 million compared to the prior-year quarter, supported by both higher retail fuel margins and volumes. This increase was driven by 26.5 cpg retail fuel margins, or 21.6% more than the prior period, despite a rising commodity price environment. PS&W margin (including RINs) increased $30.2 million when compared to Q2 2021, primarily reflecting higher contribution from typical inventory timing and price-related impacts from the product supply chain.

Total store and other operating expenses were $43.3 million higher in Q2 2022 versus the prior-year quarter mainly due to higher payment fees, employee related expenses, and store maintenance costs. Store OPEX excluding payment fees and rent on an APSM basis were 11.4% higher versus Q2 2021, primarily attributable to increased employee-related expenses and maintenance costs. Employee costs in the current quarter include the earned portion of a non-recurring special bonus to our employee base that will pay out over the 100 days of summer. In Q2 2022, this amount was approximately $3.0 million. Total SG&A costs were $3.7 million higher than the Q2 2021, primarily due to higher professional fees, contract services, and employee incentive expenses.

Store Openings

The Company opened 9 new-to-industry retail locations in Q2 2022, bringing the network total to 1,695. On a year-to-date basis, the Company has opened 15 new-to-industry Murphy Express stores, one new QuickChek store and 12 raze-and-rebuild Murphy USA locations . This total consists of 1,151 Murphy USA stores, 385 Murphy Express stores, and 159 QuickChek stores. There are a total of 38 stores currently under construction, including 17 new Murphy Express stores, 6 QuickChek stores, and 15 raze-and-rebuild Murphy USA stores.

Operating expenses in our stores have experienced labor pressures which has caused us to increase overtime spending and offer incentives to attract and retain qualified employees to run our business including a special bonus to our employee base that will be paid out over the second and third quarters of 2022. The resulting impact of these increased costs is that our operating expense projection on an APSM basis has been raised slightly. In addition, Merchandise Contribution for 2022 while still within the guidance range is trending closer to the higher end of the range due to higher sales volumes. Capital expenditures are closer to the lower end of original guidance due to supply chain issues. More details on the guidance updates will be discussed in our earnings conference call noted below.

Earnings Call Information

The Company will host a conference call on July 28, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. Central Time to discuss second quarter 2022 results.

Such statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of the Company's management and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties.

Notes

Average Per Store Month (APSM) metric includes all stores open through the date of the calculation, including stores acquired during the period.

Same store sales (SSS) metric includes aggregated individual store results for all stores open throughout both periods presented. For all periods presented, the store must have been open for the entire calendar year to be included in the comparison. Remodeled stores that remained open or were closed for just a very brief time (less than a month) during the period being compared remain in the same store sales calculation. If a store is replaced either at the same location (raze-and-rebuild) or relocated to a new location, it will be excluded from the calculation during the period it is out of service. Newly constructed stores do not enter the calculation until they are open for each full calendar year for the periods being compared (open by January 1, 2021 for the stores being compared in the 2022 versus 2021 comparison). Acquired stores are not included in the calculation of same store sales for the first 12 months after the acquisition. When prior period same store sales volumes or sales are presented, they have not been revised for current year activity for raze-and-rebuilds and asset dispositions.

QuickChek uses a weekly retail calendar where each quarter has 13 weeks. For Q2 2022, the QuickChek results cover the period from April 2, 2022 to July 1, 2022 and the year-to-date period is from January 1, 2022 to July 1, 2022. For the prior-year period, the QuickChek results cover the period from April 3, 2021 to July 2, 2021 and the year-to-date period began on January 29, 2021 (the date of acquisition) to July 2, 2021. The difference in the timing of the period ends is immaterial to the overall consolidated results.

Supplemental Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Information

The following table sets forth the Company's EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021. EBITDA means net income (loss) plus net interest expense, plus income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, and Adjusted EBITDA adds back (i) other non-cash items (e.g., impairment of properties and accretion of asset retirement obligations) and (ii) other items that management does not consider to be meaningful in assessing our operating performance (e.g., (income) from discontinued operations, net settlement proceeds, (gain) loss on sale of assets, loss on early debt extinguishment, transaction and integration costs related to acquisitions, and other non-operating (income) expense). EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures that are prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

We use Adjusted EBITDA in our operational and financial decision-making, believing that the measure is useful to eliminate certain items in order to focus on what we deem to be a more reliable indicator of ongoing operating performance and our ability to generate cash flow from operations. Adjusted EBITDA is also used by many of our investors, research analysts, investment bankers, and lenders to assess our operating performance. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because it allows understanding of a key measure that we evaluate internally when making operating and strategic decisions, preparing our annual plan, and evaluating our overall performance. However, non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP disclosures, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may be prepared differently by us than by other companies using similarly titled non-GAAP measures.

The reconciliation of net income (loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is as follows:
