29 Phase I Mantra – “replicate current state” Shorten close cycle Acquisition readiness Improve reporting Reduce dependency on Excel Crawl, walk, run CVR Energy – Hyperion Implementation Phased Approach Phase I – Kicked off April 2013 April 2013 Aug Sept Nov August 2014 Hyperion Kickoff HP OpEx/SG&A Workforce Planning Hyperion Strategic Finance (HSF) Centralized Essbase Cube Data Relationship Manager (DRM)
30 CVR Energy – Hyperion Implementation Phased Approach Phase I+ Driven by a general ledger optimization project Oracle EBS General Ledger String was improved All Hyperion Applications needed to be updated due to the change in account structure Great opportunity to improve reporting within Hyperion Essbase and go beyond “current state” with the powerful EPM suite that had been implemented Phase II This is what’s next Time for an even better and more powerful state
31 Existing Pain Points – Current Forecasting State Understanding the needs of the business Forecasting and the refining business Driven by volatile commodity prices Prices can move quickly and unexpectedly in unforeseen directions Changes in prices have material impacts on expected earnings Plant operations can be interrupted due to unplanned down time Plants go down, sometimes a partial shut down, sometimes it isn't known how long a plant will be down until engineers dig into the process units To meet management expectations Forecast must be updated frequently and scenarios stored As prices move, the forecast model needs to be flexed As changes in unexpected downtime assumptions are updated, forecast model needs to be flexed Very difficult to integrate actual statistical and financial data with forecasted data using excel Variance of scenarios becomes key Difficult to maintain all of the scenarios and the assumptions used in excel Difficult to compare assumptions used in the various scenarios in excel Difficult to “trust” excel and the multitude of spreadsheets
32 Solutions Developed Understanding the needs of the business Hyperion Strategic Finance, Hyperion Planning, and Hyperion Essbase Hyperion Strategic Finance – brains of the operation HSF contains the complex logic to calculate sales and cost of sales for the refining business HSF calculates the forecasted balance sheet and cash flow HSF calculates the variety of scenarios required by management Hyperion Planning HP is used to update operating, SG&A, and a few other select items HP is used to calculate the sales and cost of sales of the simpler nitrogen business HP is used to marry the data from HP and HSF and contains a few reports used for a first pass review Hyperion Essbase Essbase is used to tie everything together Houses up to six different versions within a given scenario Combines actuals and forecast with ease Stores all scenarios that can be called up and analyzed against other scenarios in very short order Requires strong collaboration among all parties involved
33 Benefits Achieved Improving the Process Structured process allows for weekly Flash update instead of just monthly Automated vs. manual reporting Centralized environment; data readiness allows for deeper analytics Integrated financials and operating statistics paired with driver-based forecasting Standardization of metadata leading to improved variance analysis and cross functional communication

35 Phase II HSF Changing the flow of data Hyperion Strategic Finance Hyperion Planning Hyperion Essbase Hyperion Financial Management Hyperion Essbase For HSF Hyperion Essbase For HSF Self contained detail for flash and budget Actuals Actual Budget Flash Smartview / FR Scenario Modeling M&A Modeling Capital Structure and Value Analysis Specialized Reporting Cube Smartview / FR Playground for Strategic Analysis Flex prices, business combinations Flex changes in working capital Flex changes due to secondaries Flex changes due to crude rates Direct integration with HSF Auto-export to EB upon check-in and consolidation Ability to consume data across all EB users Slice and dice information / adhoc reporting
36 Goals of HSF Phase II Playground for strategic analysis Change the flow of data Hyperion Strategic Finance – brains of the operation Scenario Analysis Layer Multiple Scenarios High-level, but accurate and important drivers Data will flow into HSF where it can be flexed and analyzed M&A Modeling Capital Structure Analysis Strategic Plan Hyperion Planning HP is used to handle the nuts and bolts of the detail forecast and budget Hyperion Essbase Existing Essbase is used to tie everything together HSF Essbase will be used to report on the special scenarios and analysis
37 Lessons Learned Be flexible, anticipate change People and knowledge There are many people who understand Hyperion Planning and Hyperion Essbase There are not as many people who understand Hyperion Strategic Finance Typically, the people who understand HSF also understand Planning and Essbase It is important to understand all three when designing a system Training upfront pays dividends in the future Data It takes time and effort to validate data It takes patience and team work to validate data It takes more work than anticipated Time Keeping current processes going while creating new processes and developing a system takes time Remember that one day it will work for you instead of you working for it
