(1) Organization and Nature of Business
CVR Energy, Inc. (“CVR Energy,” “CVR,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”) is a diversified holding company primarily engaged in the petroleum refining and nitrogen fertilizer manufacturing industries through its holdings in CVR Refining, LP (the “Petroleum Segment” or “CVR Refining”) and CVR Partners, LP (the “Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment” or “CVR Partners”). CVR Refining is an independent petroleum refiner and marketer of high value transportation fuels. CVR Partners produces and markets nitrogen fertilizers in the form of urea ammonium nitrate (“UAN”) and ammonia. CVR’s common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) under the symbol “CVI.” Icahn Enterprises L.P. and its affiliates (“IEP”) owned approximately 71% of the Company’s outstanding common shares as of December 31, 2021.
Stock Repurchase Program
On October 23, 2019, the Board of Directors authorized a stock repurchase program (the “Stock Repurchase Program”). The Stock Repurchase Program enables the Company to repurchase up to $300 million of the Company’s common stock. Repurchases under the Stock Repurchase Program may be made from time-to-time through open market transactions, block trades, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise in accordance with applicable securities laws. The timing, price and amount of repurchases (if any) will be made at the discretion of management and are subject to market conditions as well as corporate, regulatory and other considerations. While the Stock Repurchase Program currently has a duration of four years, it does not obligate the Company to acquire any stock and may be terminated by the Board of Directors at any time. We did not repurchase any of our common stock during the years ended December 31, 2021, 2020, and 2019.
CVR Refining, LP
On January 17, 2019, the general partner of CVR Refining assigned to the Company its right to purchase all of the issued and outstanding CVR Refining common units not already owned by CVR Refining’s general partner or its affiliates. On January 29, 2019, the Company purchased all remaining CVR Refining common units not already owned by the Company or its affiliates for a cash purchase price of $10.50 per unit (the “Call Price”), or approximately $241 million in the aggregate (the “Public Unit Purchase”). In conjunction with the exercise of its call right for all CVR Refining common units not already owned by the Company or its affiliates, the Company entered into a purchase agreement with American Entertainment Properties Corporation (“AEP”) and IEP, pursuant to which, on January 29, 2019, all of the Common Units held by AEP and IEP were purchased by the Company for a cash price per unit equal to the Call Price, or approximately $60 million in the aggregate (the “Affiliate Unit Purchase” together with the Public Unit Purchase, the “CVRR Unit Purchase”). The total purchase price of $301 million was funded with approximately $105 million in borrowings under a new credit agreement entered into by the Company on January 29, 2019, with the remaining amount being funded from the Company’s cash on hand. Amounts drawn under the new credit agreement were fully repaid in February 2019. The consolidated results of operations and financial position of CVR Refining are reflected as CVR’s Petroleum Segment. Following this transaction, CVR Refining became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company and, therefore, is no longer accounted for as a variable interest entity (“VIE”). Effective February 8, 2019, CVR Refining’s reporting obligations under the Exchange Act were suspended.
CVR Partners, LP
Interest Holders - As of December 31, 2021, public common unitholders held approximately 64% of CVR Partners’ outstanding common units, and CVR Services, LLC (“CVR Services”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of CVR Energy, held approximately 36% of CVR Partners’ outstanding common units. In addition, CVR Services held 100% of CVR Partners’ gener
