Delek US Holdings Reports Third Quarter 2014 Results
  • Access to additional Midland crude identified to support Tyler expansion project
  • El Dorado crude throughput up 20% year-over-year in third quarter
  • $34 million of shares repurchased during the third quarter, $42 million year to date

BRENTWOOD, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 5, 2014-- Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DK) (“Delek US”) today announced financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2014. Delek US reported third quarter net income of $72.5 million, or $1.22 per diluted share, versus a net loss of $(1.7) million, or $(0.03) per basic share, in the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

On a year-over-year basis, third quarter 2014 results increased primarily due to improved refining economics, including a wider discount between Midland WTI and Cushing WTI, increased throughput at the El Dorado refinery and a higher 5-3-2 Gulf Coast crack spread. In addition, results benefited from hedging gains that were partially offset by losses on inventory as market prices declined during the quarter.

Uzi Yemin, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delek US stated, “Our results showed a significant improvement on a year-over-year basis in the third quarter as we benefited from our access to 87,000 barrels per day of Midland sourced crude, which traded $9.85 per barrel below Cushing. In addition, crude throughput at our El Dorado refinery was up 20% on a year-over-year basis due to our ability to process additional barrels of light crude. Our retail segment results benefited from a 5.1% year-over-year increase in same store fuel gallons sold and the logistics segment performance improved compared to the third quarter 2013.”

Yemin continued, “During the quarter, we made progress on our Tyler expansion project that is expected to be completed in the first quarter 2015, which should increase our aggregate crude throughput capacity at both refineries from the current 140,000 barrels per day to 155,000 barrels per day. Further, we have identified an avenue to supply additional Midland crude through existing pipelines, which should be in place in early 2015 to support the incremental production. Based on current crude oil price differentials, this should enhance the economic return from this expansion.”

Yemin concluded, “On a year-to-date basis, we have generated approximately $474 million of contribution margin, paid approximately $45 million in dividends, and repurchased $42 million of stock. Our financial position is solid. We continue to invest in our business and allocate capital to our current share repurchase program with a focus on creating long-term value for our shareholders.”

Tyler Turnaround and Expansion Update

During the first quarter 2015, the Tyler refinery will conduct its scheduled turnaround and replace the fluid catalytic cracking reactor. In addition, work has continued on a project to expand the crude nameplate capacity at the Tyler refinery by 15,000 barrels per day to 75,000 barrels per day. This expansion project is expected to cost approximately $70.0 million, of which approximately $34.0 million has been spent through September 2014. Both the turnaround, which is expected to commence in late January, and the expansion project are expected to be completed by mid-March.

Several steps are underway to support this expansion. Access to an additional 10,000 barrels per day of crude oil has been identified through existing pipelines that should allow the Tyler expansion to be supported primarily by Midland sourced crude. This would increase Delek US' access to Midland sourced crude to 97,000 barrels per day, and is expected to be in place in early 2015. Also, steps have been taken to increase light product distribution options at Tyler. For example, Delek Logistics Partners, LP is improving the efficiency at its Tyler, Texas terminal to handle additional trucks and also purchased a terminal in Mount Pleasant, Texas. In addition, by using trucks and a third party pipeline, the Tyler refinery has the ability to ship incremental product to the Dallas market.

Regular Quarterly Dividend

Delek US announced today that its Board of Directors declared its regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.15 per share. Shareholders of record on November 25, 2014 will receive this cash dividend payable on December 16, 2014.

Liquidity Update

As of September 30, 2014, Delek US had a cash balance of $497.7 million and total debt of $594.2 million, resulting in net debt of $96.5 million. This compares to $56.1 million of net debt at June 30, 2014. As of September 30, 2014, Delek US’ subsidiary, Delek Logistics Partners, LP (NYSE: DKL) (“Delek Logistics”), had a cash balance of approximately $0.7 million and $230.0 million of debt, which is included in the consolidated amounts on Delek US’ balance sheet. Excluding Delek Logistics, Delek US had approximately $497.0 million in cash and $364.2 million of debt, or a $132.8 million net cash position.

Share Repurchase Update

During the third quarter, 1,005,657 shares were repurchased for approximately $33.7 million. These repurchases were completed at an average price of $33.45 per share. The total amount repurchased under this program for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was 1,265,901 shares for approximately $41.6 million, which equates to an average price of $32.82 per share. Shares under the program may be repurchased from time to time in the open market or through privately negotiated transactions, subject to market conditions and other factors. The $100 million repurchase authorization will expire on December 31, 2014, and as of September 30, 2014, $58.4 million of authority remained.

Contribution Margin 2014     2013
($ in millions)    
Refining Segment $ 151.1 $ 29.1
Tyler Refinery $ 86.0 $ 19.6
El Dorado Refinery $ 64.4 $ 6.0
 

Refining contribution margin increased to $151.1 million compared to $29.1 million in the third quarter 2013. Improved year-over-year performance in the refining segment can be attributed to several factors. First, the WTI Midland crude discount to WTI Cushing was significantly wider on a year-over-year basis, averaging $9.85 per barrel in third quarter 2014 compared to an average of $0.28 per barrel in the prior-year period. Second, higher throughput at the El Dorado refinery on a year-over-year basis improved contribution margin as well. Third, the benchmark Gulf Coast 5-3-2 crack spread averaged $15.05 per barrel during the third quarter 2014, compared with $12.30 per barrel during third quarter 2013. Finally, lower crude oil prices improved the profitability of residual products, including asphalt, on a year-over-year basis. These factors more than offset a futures market that was backwardated during the third quarter 2014, compared to a market that was in contango during the third quarter 2013.

Effective April 1, 2014, Delek US revised the structure of the internal financial information, which resulted in a change in the composition of our reportable segments. As a result of these changes, the results of hedging activity previously reported in Corporate, Other and Eliminations in the financial segment data tables are now included in our Refining segment and allocated to each refinery based on total throughput. Prior year period results have also been adjusted to include this change.

Tyler, Texas Refinery

Operating Highlights

September 30,

2014     2013
Crude Throughput, bpd 59,981     60,585
Total Throughput, bpd 64,431 63,880

Direct Operating Expense, $/bbl sold $ 4.24 $ 4.42
Refining Margin, $/bbl sold $ 19.05 $ 7.63
 

During the third quarter 2014, refining margin improved year-over-year at Tyler primarily due to a wider discount between Midland and Cushing crude oil. This refinery currently has access to approximately 52,000 barrels per day of Midland sourced crude. Total operating expense decreased primarily due to lower insurance and supplies expenses versus the prior-year period.

El Dorado, Arkansas Refinery

Operating Highlights      

Three Months Ended

September 30,

2014     2013
Crude Throughput, bpd 80,266     66,920
Total Throughput, bpd 86,690 75,189
Total Sales Volume, bpd 85,880 79,804
 
Direct Operating Expense, $ in millions $ 26.6 $ 28.1
 
Direct Operating Expense, $/bbl sold $ 3.36 $ 3.83
Refining Margin, $/bbl sold $ 11.51 $ 4.65
 

Crude throughput increased year-over-year at the El Dorado refinery as it was able to process additional barrels of light crude following work that was completed during its turnaround in the first quarter 2014. This translated into a higher sales volume during the period. Additionally, results benefited from a wider discount between Midland and Cushing crude oil as well as improved margins on residual products, including asphalt, due to a lower crude oil price environment on a year-over-year basis. Direct operating expense decreased year-over-year due to lower outside services, maintenance and repair expenses.

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 minority interests are made on a consolidated basis.

The logistics segment’s contribution margin in the third quarter 2014 was $23.7 million compared to $16.1 million in the third quarter 2013. On a year-over-year basis, this increase was due to Delek Logistics’ acquisition of the product terminal and substantially all of the storage tank assets at the El Dorado refinery in February 2014 from subsidiaries of Delek US, as well as third party acquisitions of the Hopewell pipeline in east Texas in July 2013 and the North Little Rock terminal in October 2013. Expenses associated with the El Dorado, Arkansas tank farms and product terminals were reclassified from the refining segment to the logistics segment in the third quarter 2013. Also contributing to higher year-over-year results was an improvement in the gross margin per barrel in the west Texas business, as well as increased volumes on the Lion Pipeline System as it supported higher throughput at the El Dorado refinery.

Retail Segment

     

Three Months Ended

September 30,

Retail Operating Highlights 2014     2013
Contribution margin, $ in millions $ 16.4     $ 16.6

Merchandise margin 27.7 % 27.6 %
Fuel margin, per gallon $ 0.194 $ 0.205
 
Store count (End of period) 366 362
 

Retail segment contribution margin decreased slightly year-over-year primarily due to higher operating expenses, which were partially offset by higher fuel gallons sold and increased merchandise sales. Fuel gallons sold increased to 116.1 million from 102.5 million in the prior-year period and merchandise sales increased to $107.0 million compared to $102.6 million. On a same store sales basis, fuel gallons increased 5.1% and merchandise sales increased 2.5% from third quarter 2013. Higher operating expenses on a year-over-year basis were primarily due to credit card, advertising and employee related expenses.

During the third quarter 2014, four new large-format stores were opened bringing the total to 63 large-format stores in the portfolio. One additional large-format store is expected to be opened during the remainder of 2014.
