BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Aug 15, 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 that members of the Company's executive leadership team, board of directors and guests will participate in The Closing Bell(R) ceremony at the New York Stock Exchange at 4:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, August 23, 2011.

The Closing Bell Ceremony will commemorate Delek US' fifth year as a public company listed on the New York Stock Exchange, in addition to the Company's recent acquisition of a majority equity interest in Lion Oil Company.

Uzi Yemin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delek US Holdings, remarked: "Since our IPO in 2006, Delek US has focused on driving superior returns for its shareholders through a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions. Earlier this year, we more than doubled our refining production capacity and greatly enhanced our product distribution capabilities through our acquisition of a majority equity interest in Lion Oil."

"Delek US' net income increased by more than $70 million during the first half of 2011, when compared to first half of 2010, due to a combination of elevated Gulf Coast refining margins and our continued access to cost-advantaged crude oil," continued Yemin.

"Looking ahead, we remain focused on expanding our asset footprint as an integrated downstream energy company," stated Yemin. "We appreciate the dedication of our employees and the long-term support of shareholders who have been pivotal to our success."
