Delek US Holdings Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Aug 03, 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 second quarter 2011.

For the three months ended June 30, 2011, Delek US reported net income from continuing operations of $54.9 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, versus net income from continuing operations of $15.0 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, in the second quarter 2010.

Excluding special items, the Company reported adjusted net income from continuing operations of $45.7 million, or $0.80 per diluted share, in the second quarter 2011, versus net income from continuing operations of $12.3 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the second quarter 2010. Second quarter 2011 adjusted net income excludes a $9.2 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, gain on the Company's equity investment in Lion Oil Company ("Lion Oil"). During the second quarter 2011, the Company incurred approximately $7.6 million of pre-tax Lion Oil related transaction costs, which impacted results by $0.09 per diluted share.

Lion Oil's financial performance for the period between April 29 and June 30, 2011 is included as part of Delek US' consolidated financial results for the second quarter 2011. For financial reporting purposes, Lion Oil's performance has been included within Delek US' refining segment statement of operations.

Uzi Yemin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delek US Holdings, remarked: "Delek US generated more than $130 million in total contribution margin during the second quarter, supported by a strong performance in our refining segment. Elevated Gulf Coast refining margins, access to cost-advantaged crude oils and strong regional demand for light products combined to produce our most profitable quarter in four years."

Crude oil differentials continued to widen during the second 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 $14 per barrel when compared to Brent crude during the second quarter 2011.

Yemin continued: "Entering the third quarter, our refining system has continued to benefit from a combination of stronger refined product margins and a further widening in crude price differentials, when compared to the first half of 2011."

"The integration of Lion Oil is proceeding as planned. Recent efforts to secure increased quantities of discounted, WTI-linked crude for processing at the El Dorado refinery have met with early success. For the months of July and August, we have secured 10,000 barrels per day of West Texas Sour for delivery at the El Dorado refinery," concluded Yemin.

As of June 30, 2011, Delek US had $148.2 million in cash and $459.1 million in debt, resulting in a net debt position of $310.9 million.

Refining Segment

Refining segment contribution margin increased to $110.4 million in the second quarter 2011, versus $38.7 million in the second quarter 2010. During the second quarter 2011, the Tyler refinery generated $82.9 million in contribution margin, while the Lion Oil operations generated $27.5 million contribution margin. The year-over-year increase in segment contribution margin was attributable to improved Gulf Coast refined product margins, widening crude differentials, strong sales of refined products and the addition of Lion Oil's performance for the period between April 29 and June 30, 2011.

Tyler, Texas Refinery

Total throughputs were 60,034 barrels per day in the second quarter 2011, versus 60,032 barrels per day in the second quarter 2010. Total sales volumes increased to 60,140 barrels per day in the second quarter 2011, compared to 59,161 barrels per day in the second quarter 2010.

Direct operating expense per barrel sold was $5.60 per barrel sold in the second quarter 2011, versus $4.39 per barrel sold in the second quarter 2010. The year-over-year increase was primarily attributable to an increase in maintenance, contractor and utilities expenses.

Tyler's refining margin, excluding inter-company product marketing fees of $0.51 per barrel, was $21.26 per barrel sold in the second quarter 2011, compared to $8.96 per barrel sold for the same quarter last year. The 5-3-2 Gulf Coast crack spread was $23.14 per barrel in the second quarter 2011, versus $9.54 per barrel in the second quarter 2010.

El Dorado, Arkansas Refinery

Delek US assumed management and operational control of the El Dorado, Arkansas refinery and certain related assets on April 29, 2011, in conjunction with the Company's majority equity investment in Lion Oil.

As previously reported, flooding along the Mississippi River during early May caused a temporary disruption in the El Dorado refinery's crude supply. As a result, the refinery operated at reduced rates between May 8 and June 15, 2011.

For the period between April 29 and June 30, 2011, total throughputs averaged 67,750 barrels per day, while the refinery operated at an average utilization rate of 76.7 percent. During June, El Dorado's crude slate included approximately 6,000 barrels per day of West Texas Sour and approximately 15,000 barrels per day of local Arkansas crude oils.

Total sales volumes averaged 67,822 barrels per day for the period between April 29 and June 30, 2011. Direct operating cost was $4.46 per barrel sold, resulting in a refining margin of $10.90 per barrel sold in the period. During most of the second quarter, asphalt prices were generally on par with the price of WTI on a per barrel basis, a factor which supported El Dorado's refining margin in the period.

Retail Segment

Retail segment contribution margin declined to $14.6 million in the second quarter 2011, compared to $18.1 million in the second quarter 2010. Elevated retail fuel prices impacted retail fuel demand during the second quarter, offsetting continued strength in same-store merchandise sales.

Same-store merchandise sales increased 0.6 percent in the second quarter 2011, compared to a same-store sales increase of 4.6 percent in the second quarter 2010. Same-store food service sales increased 9.7 percent in the second quarter 2011, as the company increased the concentration of fresh food QSR concepts to approximately 19 percent of the store base, up from approximately 14 percent of the store base in the prior-year period.

Same-store sales of private label products increased more than 70 percent in the second quarter 2011, when compared to the second quarter 2010, and comprised more than 4 percent of total merchandise sales in the period. Merchandise margin declined to 30.2 percent in the second quarter 2011, versus 31.3 percent in the prior-year period, due in part to lower margins in the cigarette category and ongoing promotional efforts.

Same-store retail fuel gallons sold declined 1.3 percent in the second quarter 2011, versus an increase of 3.4 percent during the prior-year period, due in part to higher retail fuel prices. The Company's retail fuel margin was 18.6 cents per gallon in the second quarter 2011, flat versus the prior-year period.

At the conclusion of the second quarter 2011, the retail segment operated 390 locations, versus 425 locations in the prior-year period.

Marketing Segment

Marketing segment contribution margin declined to $5.1 million in the second quarter 2011, versus $6.7 million in the second quarter 2010. Second quarter results were impacted by a decline in inventory values during the period.

Total sales volumes increased 8.8 percent to 15,946 barrels per day in the second quarter 2011, versus the prior-year period. Total sales volumes increased on a year-over-year basis for the sixth consecutive quarter during the second quarter 2011, as regional demand trends for 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 June 30, 2011 and for the three months ended June 30, 2010.
