  • Caddo joint venture crude oil pipeline began operations in January 2017
  • Declared quarterly distribution of $0.68 per limited partner unit; increased by 15.3 percent year-over-year
  • Reported fourth quarter net cash from operating activities of $13.9 million and distributable cash flow of $18.5 million
  • Potential for increased dropdown assets at our sponsor should support annual distribution growth per limited partner unit of at least 10% through 2019

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Feb. 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Delek Logistics Partners, LP (NYSE:DKL) ("Delek Logistics") today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter 2016. For the three months ended December 31, 2016, Delek Logistics reported net income attributable to all partners of $15.3 million, or $0.47 per diluted common limited partner unit. This compares to net income attributable to all partners of $15.3 million, or $0.55 per diluted common limited partner unit, in the fourth quarter 2015. Distributable cash flow ("DCF") was $18.5 million in the fourth quarter 2016, compared to $18.9 million in the prior-year period.

For the fourth quarter 2016, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") was $24.4 million compared to $23.6 million in the prior-year period. This improvement was driven by a combination of higher volume and gross margin per barrel in west Texas as demand benefited from increased drilling activity in the Permian Basin and lower operating expenses, which was partially offset by lower volume in SALA Gathering System and on the Paline pipeline.

For 2016, net income attributable to all partners was $62.8 million, or $2.07 per diluted common limited partner unit. This compares to net income attributable to all partners of $66.8 million, or $2.52 per diluted common limited partner unit for 2015. Net cash from operations was $100.7 million and distributable cash flow was $81.7 million in 2016 compared to net cash from operations of $68.0 million and distributable cash flow of $81.3 million in 2015. EBITDA was $97.3 million in 2016, compared to $96.5 million in 2015.

Based on the declared distribution for the fourth quarter 2016, the distributable cash flow coverage ratio for the fourth quarter was 0.90x, which was reduced by spending for maintenance and regulatory capital expenditures that shifted into the fourth quarter. On an annual basis for 2016, the distributable cash flow coverage ratio was 1.09x.

Uzi Yemin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Delek Logistics' general partner, remarked: "During the fourth quarter, our focus on cost savings initiatives played a role in the 25 percent year-over-year decline in operating expenses. Also the improvement in west Texas activity in the Permian Basin that benefited our wholesale business during the fourth quarter has continued into 2017. We maintained financial flexibility, ending the quarter with approximately $300 million of capacity on our credit facility and a leverage ratio of 3.85 times. This financial position supported the 15.3 percent year-over-year increase in our declared fourth quarter distribution."

Yemin concluded, "In January, the Caddo joint venture crude oil pipeline began operating and we expect utilization to increase through 2017. With a continued increase in drilling activity in the Permian Basin, our RIO joint venture pipeline, which began operating in September, is well positioned in the Delaware Basin to benefit from increased crude oil production in the future. As we benefit from our joint venture investments in 2017, we remain focused on creating long term value for our unitholders as we continue to evaluate potential third party acquisition opportunities and explore options to partner with Delek US in the future. Delek US' recent announcement of a definitive agreement to acquire the remaining outstanding common stock of Alon USA Energy, Inc. should create future potential drop down opportunities after closing that can support additional growth at Delek Logistics. It will also create a refining system with significant access to the Permian Basin, which should provide a platform for future potential logistics projects to support these operations. The combination of the financial flexibility provided by our balance sheet, potential for increased dropdown assets at our sponsor and continued focus on growth initiatives, gives us confidence that we can increase our distribution per limited partner unit by at least 10% annually through 2019."

Distribution and Liquidity
On January 25, 2017, Delek Logistics declared a quarterly cash distribution for the fourth quarter of $0.68 per limited partner unit, which equates to $2.72 per limited partner unit on an annualized basis. This distribution was paid on February 14, 2017 to unitholders of record on February 7, 2017. This represents a 3.8 percent increase from the third quarter 2016 distribution of $0.655 per limited partner unit, or $2.62 per limited partner unit on an annualized basis, and a 15.3 percent increase over Delek Logistics’ fourth quarter 2015 distribution of $0.59 per limited partner unit, or $2.36 per limited partner unit annualized. For the fourth quarter 2016, the total cash distribution declared to all partners, including IDRs, was $20.5 million.

As of December 31, 2016, Delek Logistics had total debt of approximately $392.6 million. Additional borrowing capacity, subject to certain covenants, under the $700.0 million credit facility was approximately $301.4 million.

Financial Results
Revenue for the fourth quarter 2016 was $124.7 million compared to $108.9 million in the prior year period. The increase in revenue is primarily due to higher volume and prices in the west Texas wholesale business. Total operating expenses were $8.8 million compared to $11.7 million in the fourth quarter 2015. This reduction in operating expenses was primarily due to lower outside services and maintenance costs on a year-over-year basis, partly as a result of a higher level of maintenance projects that were completed in the prior year period and cost savings initiatives. Total segment contribution margin increased to $27.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to $26.2 million in the fourth quarter 2015. General and administrative expenses were $2.3 million for the fourth quarter 2016, in line with $2.3 million in the prior-year period.

Pipelines and Transportation Segment
The contribution margin in the fourth quarter 2016 was $16.8 million compared to $17.5 million in the fourth quarter 2015. This change was primarily due to reduced performance in the Paline Pipeline as a result of a reduction in both the amount of capacity that is leased and the lease fee on a year-over-year basis. Also, lower volume on the SALA gathering system on a year-over-year basis was a factor in the change in contribution margin. This was partially offset by a decline in operating expenses to $6.9 million in the fourth quarter 2016 compared to $10.7 million in the prior year period.

Wholesale Marketing and Terminalling Segment
During the fourth quarter 2016, contribution margin was $10.3 million, compared to $8.7 million in the fourth quarter 2015. This increase was primarily due to improved performance in the west Texas wholesale operations, at the El Dorado terminal and under the east Texas marketing agreement on a year-over-year basis. Operating expenses were $1.8 million in the fourth quarter 2016, compared to $1.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.

In the west Texas wholesale business, average throughput in the fourth quarter 2016 was 13,906 barrels per day compared to 12,488 barrels per day in the fourth quarter 2015. The wholesale gross margin in west Texas increased year-over-year to $1.96 per barrel and included approximately $1.9 million, or $1.51 per barrel, from renewable identification numbers (RINs) generated in the quarter. During the fourth quarter 2015, the wholesale gross margin was $1.05 per barrel and included $0.9 million from RINs, or $0.79 per barrel.

Average terminalling throughput volume of 119,934 barrels per day during the quarter increased on a year-over-year basis from 114,136 barrels per day in the fourth quarter 2015 primarily due to higher throughput at the El Dorado, Arkansas and Mount Pleasant, Texas terminals. During the fourth quarter 2016, average volume under the east Texas marketing agreement with Delek US was 68,114 barrels per day compared to 66,950 barrels per day during the fourth quarter 2015.

Project Development Update
In March 2015, Delek Logistics, through wholly owned subsidiaries, entered into two joint ventures (Caddo Pipeline and RIO Pipeline). Delek Logistics’ total investment for the construction of the two joint venture pipelines was financed through a combination of cash from operations and borrowings under its revolving credit facility. Through December 31, 2016, approximately $102.7 million has been invested in these projects. The RIO Pipeline began operating in September 2016 and the Caddo Pipeline was operational in January 2017.

Delek Logistics undertakes no obligation to update or revise such forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that occur, or which Delek Logistics becomes aware of, after the date hereof.

Factors Affecting Comparability:
On March 31, 2015, Delek Logistics acquired the Tyler crude oil storage tank and the El Dorado rail offloading facility (the "Logistics Assets") from Delek US. These assets were accounted for as transfers between entities under common control. Accordingly, the accompanying financial statements of the Partnership have been retrospectively adjusted to include the historical results of these assets in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For the period ended March 31, 2015, the acquisition date of the Logistics Assets, the retrospective adjustments were made to the financial statements. The historical results of the Logistics Assets, prior to the acquisition date, are referred to as the "Logistics Assets Predecessor".

Non-GAAP Disclosures:
EBITDA, distributable cash flow and distributable cash flow coverage ratio are non-U.S. GAAP supplemental financial measures that management and external users of our combined financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, may use to assess:

  • Delek Logistics' operating performance as compared to other publicly traded partnerships in the midstream energy industry, without regard to historical cost basis or, in the case of EBITDA, financing methods;
  • the ability of our assets to generate sufficient cash flow to make distributions to Delek Logistics' unitholders;
  • Delek Logistics' ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and
  • the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects and the returns on investment of various investment opportunities.

Delek Logistics believes that the presentation of EBITDA, distributable cash flow and distributable cash flow coverage ratio provide useful information to investors in assessing its financial condition, its results of operations and cash flow its business is generating. EBITDA, distributable cash flow and distributable cash flow coverage ratio should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to net income, operating income, cash from operations or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. EBITDA, distributable cash flow and distributable cash flow coverage ratio have important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some, but not all items that affect net income and net cash provided by operating activities. Additionally, because EBITDA and distributable cash flow may be defined differently by other partnerships in its industry, Delek Logistics' definitions of EBITDA and distributable cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other partnerships. Please see the tables below for a reconciliation of EBITDA and distributable cash flow to their most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Also, please see the accompanying table providing the calculation of distributable cash flow coverage ratio.

We also include the results of our operations excluding the results of our Logistics Assets Predecessor. We believe that the presentation of our results of operations excluding results of our Logistics Assets Predecessor will provide useful information to investors in assessing our results of operations by allowing them to analyze operations of our business under our current commercial agreements with Delek US.
