Delek US Holdings Reports First Quarter 2016 Results
  • Cash balance increased to $350 million at March 31 from $302 million at December 31
  • Expect cash proceeds up to $160 million for the full year from tax refunds and business interruption proceeds

BRENTWOOD, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 5, 2016-- Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DK) (“Delek US”) today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2016. Delek US reported a first quarter net loss of $(29.2) million, or $(0.47) per basic share, versus a net loss of $(16.1) million, or $(0.28) per basic share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. On an adjusted basis, Delek US reported a net loss of $(53.3) million, or $(0.86) per basic share for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, compared to a net loss of $(10.1) million, or $(0.18) per basic share on an adjusted basis in the prior year period. Reconciliations of GAAP earnings to adjusted earnings are included in the financial tables attached to this release.

On a year-over-year basis, results in the first quarter 2016 benefited from higher sales volumes compared to the prior year period when the Tyler, Texas refinery underwent a scheduled turnaround. These benefits were more than offset by a 49 percent decline in the WTI Gulf Coast 5-3-2 crack spread, lower realized hedging gains of $0.8 million compared to $20.8 million in the prior year period and a narrowing of the Midland WTI crude oil discount to Cushing WTI.

In addition to the factors above, results were negatively affected by approximately $21.5 million, or $0.22 per basic share after tax in the first quarter 2016. This amount consists of approximately $16.1 million, or $0.17 per basic share after tax of other inventory charges, excluding lower of cost or market, in the refining segment due to changes in prices in the quarter. Additionally, approximately $5.4 million of costs, or $0.05 per basic share after tax, were incurred during the period related to a combination of higher general liability expense, costs associated with contaminated fuel at two terminal locations and oil spill remediation costs. In the first quarter 2015, reported results included other inventory charges of $29.6 million, or $0.33 per basic share after tax.

In May 2015, Delek US acquired 48 percent of the outstanding stock of Alon USA. The loss from the equity investment in Alon USA and associated interest costs related to the financing of this investment lowered results by approximately $0.23 per basic share in the first quarter 2016. This loss, combined with the $0.22 per basic share of inventory and other cost, reduced results by $0.45 per basic share. Excluding these factors, our adjusted results would have been a loss of $(0.41) per basic share in the first quarter 2016. For purposes of after tax calculations, a marginal income tax rate of 35 percent was used related to other inventory charges, other costs and the effect from the investment in Alon USA.

Uzi Yemin, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delek US stated, “During the first quarter, we remained focused on the factors within our control, while facing challenging refining conditions. Capital spending was $9.9 million during the quarter and we lowered our net debt position on a sequential basis by approximately $60 million. Our logistics segment results improved on a year-over-year basis, and our joint venture crude oil pipeline projects are moving forward, with completion of the RIO pipeline in west Texas expected in July. This should improve crude sourcing flexibility in west Texas for our refining system.”

Yemin concluded, “We have been focused on maintaining liquidity in our balance sheet and ended the quarter with $350 million of cash, and when combined with the completion of a large capital spending program in 2015, our company is better positioned to manage the current environment. We are now forecasting $64.5 million in capital expenditures in 2016 as we focus primarily on maintenance spending, which compares to $89.0 million in our previous forecast and $219.0 million spent in 2015. As we have moved toward the summer driving season, we have experienced continued improvement in the refining environment, as crack spread has increased from the first quarter. With a focus on creating long term value for our shareholders, the evaluation of alternatives to unlock the value of our retail assets, which could include a drop down to Delek Logistics, are underway, and we continue to explore options for our investment in Alon USA.”

Regular Quarterly Dividend and Share Repurchase

Delek US announced today that its Board of Directors had declared its regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.15 per share. Shareholders of record on May 24, 2016 will receive this cash dividend payable on June 14, 2016.

During the first quarter 2016 from March 16 to March 31, approximately 180,209 shares were repurchased for $2.8 million, or $15.54 per share, under the 2016 share repurchase authorization of $125.0 million, which expires on December 31, 2016. On a year to date basis through April 29, a total of 386,090 shares were repurchased for $5.9 million, or $15.41 per share.

Liquidity

As of March 31, 2016, Delek US had a cash balance of $349.9 million and total debt of $962.0 million, resulting in net debt of $612.1 million. This compares to $673.5 million of net debt at December 31, 2015. As of March 31, 2016, Delek US’ subsidiary, Delek Logistics Partners, LP (NYSE: DKL) (“Delek Logistics”), had $0.2 million of cash and $357.9 million of debt, which is included in the consolidated amounts on Delek US’ balance sheet. Excluding Delek Logistics, Delek US had approximately $349.7 million in cash and $604.1 million of debt, or a $254.4 million net debt position compared to $321.9 million at December 31, 2015.

During the first quarter 2016, approximately $100.0 million of cash was received from a litigation settlement and tax refunds. The total litigation settlement was approximately $49.0 million, of which $42.4 million was recognized as business interruption proceeds in the first quarter 2016. Approximately $6.4 million of this settlement was recognized in the fourth quarter 2015 as a reduction in G&A expenses related to legal costs incurred as part of the litigation. Additionally, approximately $35.0 million to $40.0 million of additional cash is expected to be received during the second quarter 2016 from tax refunds. The total amount expected to be received in 2016 from the litigation settlement and tax refunds is up to $160 million.

Refining segment contribution margin was $23.5 million, which includes a $42.4 million benefit from business interruption proceeds, compared to $21.9 million in the first quarter 2015. On a year-over-year basis several factors affected performance at the refineries. First, the Gulf Coast 5-3-2 crack spread declined to $7.68 per barrel for the first quarter 2016, compared to $14.99 per barrel for the same period in 2015. Second, other inventory charges, excluding lower of cost or market, were $16.1 million ($14.9 million at El Dorado and $1.1 million at Tyler), compared to other inventory charges, excluding lower of cost or market, of $29.6 million ($21.8 million at El Dorado and $7.8 million at Tyler) in the first quarter 2015. Third, the first quarter 2016 included a net hedging loss of $(7.6) million compared to an $8.0 million hedging gain in the prior year period.

The Midland WTI crude differential to Cushing WTI averaged a $0.14 per barrel premium in first quarter 2016 compared to an average discount of $1.98 per barrel in the first quarter 2015. This decline in the Midland differential was partially offset by a crude oil futures market that was in contango of $1.80 per barrel in the first quarter 2016, compared to contango of $0.68 per barrel in the first quarter 2015.

On a year-over-year basis, throughput and sales volume increased at Tyler due to the refinery completing a scheduled turnaround and expansion in the first quarter 2015. Sales volume at El Dorado was in line with the prior year period.

In the first quarter 2016, operating expenses increased at both refineries on a year-over-year basis. The increase at Tyler was primarily due to the refinery undergoing a turnaround in the prior year period. Also, there was approximately $2.7 million of increased general liability expense at Tyler in the first quarter 2016. El Dorado operating expense increased primarily due to outside services that included $1.1 million of oil spill remediation, partially offset by lower variable costs.

Logistics Segment

Delek US and its affiliates beneficially own approximately 62 percent (including the 2 percent general partner interest) of all outstanding Delek Logistics units. The logistics segment’s results include 100 percent of the performance of Delek Logistics and adjustments for the non-controlling interests are made on a consolidated basis.

The logistics segment contribution margin in the first quarter 2016 was $26.8 million compared to $24.3 million in the first quarter 2015. On a year-over-year basis, results benefited from acquisitions by Delek Logistics of the El Dorado, Arkansas rail offloading rack and the Tyler, Texas crude oil storage tank purchased on March 31, 2015 from subsidiaries of Delek US. Also, performance in the east Texas assets improved on a year-over-year basis as the Tyler refinery underwent a scheduled turnaround in the first quarter 2015. These factors were partially offset by a lower gross margin per barrel and volume sold in the west Texas wholesale business.

Fuel margin, per gallon $ 0.152 $ 0.163

Retail segment contribution margin decreased year-over-year primarily due to lower fuel margins, partially offset by higher fuel gallons sold and merchandise sales. Fuel gallons sold increased to 111.1 million from 108.7 million in the prior-year period and merchandise sales increased year-over-year to $99.4 million compared to $94.5 million. On a same store sales basis, fuel gallons sold increased 0.4% and merchandise sales increased 4.9% from first quarter 2015. While same store fuel gallons did increase for the quarter, it was negatively affected in January due to a product contamination incident in a large market that reduced gallons sold during that month. Same store fuel gallons sold in February and March increased by an average of 4.4 percent. At the end of the first quarter 2016, there were a total of 69 large-format stores in the portfolio.
