Delek US Holdings Reports Second Quarter 2009 Results

BRENTWOOD, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 6, 2009-- 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 second quarter 2009.


Results for the three months ended June 30, 2009 were impacted by the effects of a fire at the Company’s Tyler, Texas refinery on Nov. 20, 2008. The Tyler refinery was subject to a gradual, monitored restart in early May 2009, culminating in a full resumption of operations on May 18, 2009.


Delek US reported net income from continuing operations of $26.3 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, in the second quarter 2009, versus net income from continuing operations of $3.3 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, in the second quarter 2008. Excluding special items, the Company reported adjusted net income from continuing operations of $12.8 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the second quarter 2009.


During the second quarter, Delek US recorded income of $57.6 million related to claims under the Company’s property damage and business interruption insurance policies, including $37.0 million from the Company’s business interruption policy and $17.3 million from its property damage policy, net of $3.3 million in property damage expenses. Since the start of the third quarter 2009, the Company has received cash payments and approvals for payments totaling $12 million. The Company believes it will receive additional insurance proceeds as claims are finalized.


“The Tyler refinery resumed operations during the second quarter 2009,” stated Uzi Yemin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delek US. “Our second quarter results benefited from the receipt of more than $57 million in gross insurance proceeds, in addition to a significant decline in commodity prices when compared to the prior year period. The discretionary upgrades and capital improvements made in connection with the rebuild process are now complete, positioning us to take advantage of a more flexible crude slate, as refining economics allow.”


Refining Segment

Refining contribution margin increased to $58.3 million in the second quarter 2009, compared to $20.5 million in the second quarter 2008. Refining segment financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2009 are not comparable to the prior year due to a fire at the Tyler refinery which kept the facility offline from November 20, 2008 into May 2009.


Delek US carries approximately $1 billion in combined limits to insure against property damage and business interruption. During the second quarter, the Company received $57.6 million in combined insurance proceeds from its business interruption and property damage insurance policies. Net of property damage expenses, the Company booked $54.3 million in net insurance proceeds for the second quarter 2009.


Refining margin, adding back inter-company marketing fees of $1.97 per barrel, was $14.52 per barrel sold, compared to $10.49 per barrel sold for the same quarter last year. The 5-3-2 Gulf Coast crack spread was $8.08 per barrel for the 44 days the refinery was operational during the second quarter 2009. Average daily production for the period the refinery was fully operational during the second quarter 2009 was 53,103 barrels per day.


Second quarter 2009 refining margins benefited from several factors when compared to the year ago quarter, most notable of which was a year-over-year decline of nearly 50 percent in the average price of WTI to less than $70 per barrel. In addition, second quarter results benefited from the continuation of a WTI contango market structure which averaged $1.90 per barrel in the second quarter 2009.


Retail Segment

Retail segment contribution margin declined to $9.9 million in the second quarter 2009, compared to $15.6 million in the second quarter 2008. The year-over-year decline in contribution margin was primarily attributable to lower retail fuel margins when compared to the prior year period.


Second quarter 2009 retail margins were 12.3 cents per gallon, compared to 17.4 cents per gallon in the second quarter 2008. Same store retail fuel gallons sold declined 0.8 percent in the second quarter. Coordinated marketing efforts initiated in early June helped to improve store traffic exiting the second quarter and into the early weeks of July.


The retail segment reported a 1.3 percent same-store merchandise sales decline in the second quarter 2009. An increase in cigarette and other tobacco sales was offset by declines in the beer and dairy categories. Merchandise margin for the three months ended June 30, 2009 was 30.1 percent, versus 31.8 percent in the second quarter 2008.


In the first six months of 2009, the retail segment reimaged 21 stores. From the start of our reimaging program in 2006 through June 30, 2009 the retail segment had reimaged approximately 25 percent of the Company’s total store base.


During the fourth quarter 2008, the Company’s Virginia operations were reclassified to discontinued operations and the assets and liabilities associated with the remaining stores are reflected as “held for sale” for all periods. As of June 30, 2009, the Company had sold 27 of the 36 Virginia-based stores held for sale.


Marketing Segment

Marketing segment contribution margin was $7.7 million in the second quarter 2009, compared to $6.1 million in the second quarter 2008.


The marketing segment received $6.3 million intercompany fees from the refining segment during the second quarter 2009, including $4.3 million related to marketing services. The balance of $2.0 million was for services provided under the intercompany pipeline and storage agreement.
