Delek US Holdings Reports Third Quarter 2011 Results

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Nov 02, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DK), a diversified energy company with assets in the petroleum refining, marketing and retail industries, today announced financial results for the third quarter 2011.

For the three months ended September 30, 2011, Delek US reported net income from continuing operations of $92.5 million, or $1.58 per diluted share, versus a net loss from continuing operations of ($9.9) million, or ($0.18) per basic share, in the third quarter 2010.

Excluding special items, the Company reported adjusted net income from continuing operations of $88.8 million, or $1.52 per diluted share, in the third quarter 2011. Third quarter 2011 adjusted net income excludes a $3.7 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, gain on the Company's equity investment in Lion Oil Company ("Lion Oil"). Third quarter results were affected by a $6.1 million after-tax loss on derivative instruments that impacted net income by $0.10 per diluted share in the period.

Uzi Yemin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delek US Holdings, remarked: "Delek US generated record net income during the third quarter, supported by significant contributions from the Company's refining segment. The Tyler and El Dorado refineries benefited from a significant increase in Gulf Coast refined product margins, when compared to the prior-year period, as well as from continued access to substantial volumes of WTI-linked crude oil. Both refineries operated near capacity during the third quarter, given favorable market conditions."

Crude oil differentials continued to widen during the third quarter 2011, as illustrated by a marked disparity between the price of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) and other crude oils. The price of WTI held an average discount of more than $22 per barrel when compared to Brent crude during the third quarter 2011.

Third quarter 2011 results include a reduction to Delek US' net income of $4.0 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, related to earnings attributable to the non-controlling interest in Lion Oil. In October 2011, Delek US acquired the minority equity interest held by a consortium of Lion shareholders to become the sole owner of the El Dorado refinery and related assets.

"Early into the fourth quarter, we acquired the remaining minority equity interest in Lion Oil. By assuming sole ownership of the El Dorado refinery and associated assets, we have more flexibility to pursue strategic initiatives capable of unlocking value for our shareholders," continued Yemin.

"The integration of Lion Oil continues to proceed as planned. Our near-term focus remains on identifying and capturing acquisition-related synergies that exist between our Tyler and El Dorado refineries. During the third quarter, we began work on a series of 'quick-hit' capital projects at both refineries that we expect to be completed during the second half of 2012. We believe these projects, with an estimated cost of approximately $20 million, have the potential to generate up to $30 million of incremental contribution margin annually, given current market conditions," stated Yemin.

"During the third quarter, we supplied approximately 25,000 barrels per day of WTI-linked crude oil to our El Dorado refinery, including a combination of local Arkansas and West Texas crudes. We continue to work toward our goal of supplying up to 25,000 barrels per day of additional West Texas crude to our El Dorado refinery within 18 months," concluded Yemin.

As of September 30, 2011, Delek US had $218.7 million in cash and $424.1 million in debt, resulting in a net debt position of 205.4 million. During the third quarter 2011, Delek US reduced its total debt outstanding by approximately $35 million.

Refining Segment

Refining segment contribution margin increased to $176.1 million in the third quarter 2011, versus a loss of $1.1 million in the third quarter 2010. During the third quarter 2011, the Tyler refinery generated $99.9 million in contribution margin, while the Lion Oil operations generated $76.2 million contribution margin.

The year-over-year increase in segment contribution margin was attributable to the inclusion of Lion Oil in the Company's consolidated statement of operations, higher refining system throughputs, improved Gulf Coast refined product margins, access to cost-advantaged domestic crude sources and strong sales of refined products.

Tyler, Texas Refinery

Total throughputs were 59,812 barrels per day in the third quarter 2011, versus 47,452 barrels per day in the third quarter 2010. Total sales volumes increased to 59,920 barrels per day in the third quarter 2011, compared to 46,500 barrels per day in the third quarter 2010. Tyler operated at 96 percent of nameplate capacity during the third quarter 2011, versus 75.5 percent in the prior-year period.

Direct operating expense per barrel sold was $5.33 per barrel sold in the third quarter 2011, versus $5.96 per barrel sold in the third quarter 2010. The year-over-year change was primarily attributable to higher throughputs and lower contractor expenses.

Tyler's refining margin, excluding inter-company product marketing fees of $0.67 per barrel, was $24.14 per barrel sold in the third quarter 2011, compared to $6.30 per barrel sold for the same quarter last year. The 5-3-2 Gulf Coast crack spread was $30.80 per barrel in the third quarter 2011, versus $7.45 per barrel in the third quarter 2010.

During the third quarter, the Tyler refinery processed a crude slate that consisted primarily of West Texas Intermediate, in addition to other local domestic crude oils. Tyler produced approximately 96 percent light products in the third quarter 2011.

El Dorado, Arkansas Refinery

Total throughputs were 86,066 barrels per day in the third quarter 2011, versus 67,750 barrels per day in the second quarter 2011. Total sales volumes increased to 82,317 barrels per day in the third quarter 2011, compared to 67,822 barrels per day in the second quarter 2011. El Dorado operated at 99.7 percent of nameplate capacity during the third quarter 2011, versus 76.7 percent in the second quarter 2011. Delek US operated the refinery operated for a total of 92 days during the third quarter 2011, versus only 63 days post-acquisition in the second quarter 2011.

Direct operating expense per barrel sold was $4.27 per barrel sold in the third quarter 2011, versus $4.46 per barrel sold in the second quarter 2011. The quarter-over-quarter change was primarily attributable to higher throughputs and a decline in utilities expenses. El Dorado's refining margin was $14.33 per barrel sold in the third quarter 2011, compared to $10.90 per barrel sold in the second quarter 2011.

During the third quarter, the El Dorado refinery processed a crude slate consisting of local Arkansas crudes, West Texas crudes and domestic offshore crudes. El Dorado produced approximately 74.4 percent light products in the third quarter 2011.

Retail Segment

Retail segment contribution margin declined to $15.6 million in the third quarter 2011, versus $18.7 million in the third quarter 2010. Third quarter 2011 results were impacted by declines in the Company's retail fuel and merchandise margins, in addition to increased credit card expenses resulting from higher retail fuel prices, when compared to the third quarter 2010.

Same-store merchandise sales increased 2.4 percent in the third quarter 2011, when compared to the prior-year period. Same-store food service sales increased 18.8 percent in the third quarter 2011, as the company increased the concentration of fresh food QSR concepts to approximately 20 percent of the store base. Same-store sales of private label products increased more than 30 percent in the third quarter 2011, when compared to the third quarter 2010, and comprised more than 4 percent of total merchandise sales in the period.

Merchandise margin declined to 29.0 percent in the third quarter 2011, versus 30.1 percent in the prior-year period, due in part to lower margins in the cigarette category.

Same-store retail fuel gallons sold increased 3.2 percent in the third quarter 2011, when compared to the prior-year period. The increase in same-store fuel volumes was partially attributable to a more competitively priced fuel offering. The Company's retail fuel margin was 18.8 cents per gallon in the third quarter 2011, versus 19.6 cents per gallon in the prior-year period.

At the conclusion of the third quarter 2011, the retail segment operated 384 locations, versus 420 locations in the prior-year period.

Marketing Segment

Marketing segment contribution margin increased to $6.8 million in the third quarter 2011, versus $5.7 million in the third quarter 2011.

Total sales volumes increased 14.3 percent to 16,139 barrels per day in the third quarter 2011, versus the prior-year period. Total sales volumes increased on a year-over-year basis for the seventh consecutive quarter during the third quarter 2011, as regional demand trends for gasoline and distillate products remained strong in the period.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Delek US reports its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). However, management believes that certain non-GAAP performance measures may provide users of financial information (i) increased transparency into the Company's operations; and (ii) additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. For these reasons, management is presenting certain adjustments to GAAP results in order to reflect the ongoing operations of the business. Management believes these measures will help investors better understand and evaluate the Company.

Delek US provides the following reconciliation schedule in calculating "adjusted" net income from continuing operations, a non-GAAP measure.

The following item(s) are excluded in the calculation of adjusted net income from continuing operations for the three months ended September 30, 2011 and for the three months ended September 30, 2010.
