Delek US Holdings Reports First Quarter 2017 Results

  • Alon transaction expected to close on July 1
  • Financial flexibility with approximately $591 million of cash at March 31, 2017
  • Access to the Permian Basin benefiting operations as crude oil production increases

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., May 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:DK) (“Delek US”) today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2017. Delek US reported first quarter net income of $11.2 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, versus a net loss of $(29.2) million, or $(0.47) per basic share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. On an adjusted basis Delek US reported net income of $10.1 million, or $0.16 per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, compared to a net loss of $(53.4) million, or $(0.86) per basic share on an adjusted basis in the prior year period. Reconciliations of GAAP net income (loss) to adjusted net income (loss) are included in the financial tables attached to this release.

On a year-over-year basis during the first quarter, improved results were driven by an increase in performance in the refining segment primarily due to a higher Gulf Coast 5-3-2 crack spread and a lower RINs price environment that benefited netbacks across terminals in the wholesale channel, combined with the benefit from a RINs waiver for 2016 at the El Dorado refinery. This waiver resulted in a positive effect on pre-tax income of approximately $47.5 million, or $0.46 per share after tax. Also, both operating and general and administrative expenses declined on a year-over-year basis.

These improvements on a year-over-year basis were partially offset by sixteen days of planned downtime for a turnaround at the Tyler, Texas refinery. As a result of this work the expected time between turnarounds at the Tyler refinery can be extended into 2021 from the previous planned 2020 turnaround. Also, there was a lower benefit from the combination of contango and the WTI Midland-Cushing differential on a year-over-year basis and, during the first quarter 2016, a low crude oil price environment benefited residual product margins, including asphalt, as compared to the pricing environment in the first quarter 2017.

Uzi Yemin, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delek US stated, "Late in the first quarter, we experienced improving market conditions as the Gulf Coast 5-3-2 crack spread increased and Midland sourced crude moved to a discount to Cushing as we entered the second quarter. The improving drilling activity and crude oil production in the Permian Basin has several positive effects on our operations. There is the potential for our refining operations to benefit from a widening discount of Permian sourced crude to Cushing and improved economics for crude gathering as crude oil production rises. Our logistics segment has the potential to benefit through its west Texas wholesale business and the Paline Pipeline where volume should improve as wider crude discounts support shipping economics on that pipeline."

Yemin concluded, "We remain focused on creating long-term shareholder value as we take the next step in the growth of Delek US. We were pleased with Alon's first quarter results and the transaction to acquire the remaining outstanding common stock of Alon that Delek US does not already own is moving forward. As part of the process we received FTC clearance in April and, based on current plans subject to regulatory and shareholder approval, we expect to close on or about July 1. The combined refining company will have approximately 300,000 barrels per day of crude throughput capacity and current logistical access to approximately 200,000 barrels per day of Permian Basin sourced crude. If successful we expect to create approximately $95 million of annual synergies beginning in 2018 and should be able to unlock approximately $78 million of logistics EBITDA through future potential dropdowns to Delek Logistics from this transaction."

Alon Investment Update
On January 3, 2017, Delek US announced that it had reached a definitive agreement, subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory and shareholder approvals, under which Delek US will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Alon USA Energy, Inc. (NYSE:ALJ) ("Alon") common stock which Delek US does not already own in an all-stock transaction. Delek US currently owns approximately 33.7 million shares of common stock of Alon. Under terms of the agreement, the owners of the remaining outstanding shares in Alon will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 0.5040 Delek US shares for each share of Alon. This transaction is subject to approval of both Delek US' and Alon's shareholders.

At March 31, 2017, Delek US owned approximately 47 percent of the outstanding stock of Alon, which was acquired in May 2015. The income from the equity investment in Alon was $2.8 million in the first quarter 2017 compared to a loss of $(17.8) million in the first quarter 2016.

Regular Quarterly Dividend
Delek US announced today that its Board of Directors had declared its regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.15 per share. Shareholders of record on May 23, 2017 will receive this cash dividend payable on June 2, 2017.

Liquidity
As of March 31, 2017, Delek US had a cash balance of $591.4 million and total consolidated debt of $824.9 million, resulting in net debt of $233.5 million. As of March 31, 2017, Delek US' subsidiary, Delek Logistics Partners, LP (NYSE:DKL) ("Delek Logistics"), had $392.0 million of debt, which is included in the consolidated amounts on Delek US' balance sheet. Excluding Delek Logistics, Delek US had approximately $591.4 million in cash and $432.9 million of debt, or a $158.5 million net cash position.

Refining Segment
Refining segment contribution margin was $64.4 million in the first quarter 2017 compared to $23.5 million in the first quarter 2016. Contribution margin in the first quarter 2017 included approximately $47.5 million benefit from the RINs waiver and the first quarter 2016 contribution margin included a $42.4 million benefit from business interruption insurance proceeds. On a year-over-year basis, several factors affected performance at the refineries. First, the Gulf Coast 5-3-2 crack spread increased to $10.50 per barrel for the first quarter 2017, compared to $7.68 per barrel for the same period in 2016. Second, a declining RINs price environment had an indirect effect of improved netbacks across the wholesale system and it also had a direct effect of lower RINs expense. Third, there was an inventory benefit of $2.8 million in the first quarter 2017 compared to a charge of $12.3 million in the prior year period. Finally, the first quarter 2017 included a net hedging loss of $(0.8) million compared to a $(7.6) million hedging loss in the prior year period.

In the first quarter 2017, operating expenses in the refining segment decreased to $50.8 million from $58.3 million in the prior year period. The decrease at both refineries was primarily due to lower outside services, general liability expense and maintenance.

These factors were partially offset by sixteen days of planned downtime for a turnaround at the Tyler, Texas refinery during the first quarter 2017. Also, during the first quarter 2016, refining performance benefited from a low crude oil price environment, as it improved results of residual products, including asphalt, as compared to the first quarter 2017.

The Midland WTI crude differential to Cushing WTI averaged a $0.53 per barrel premium in first quarter 2017 compared to an average premium of $0.14 per barrel in the first quarter 2016. In addition, contango in the oil futures market decreased to $1.00 per barrel in the first quarter 2017, compared to contango of $1.80 per barrel in the first quarter 2016. On a year-over-year basis, while the combination of the Midland premium and contango still reduced the average crude oil price per barrel in the first quarter 2017, the benefit declined by $1.19 per barrel compared to the first quarter 2016. This decline in benefit year-over-year reduced margins at both refineries, but has a larger effect at the Tyler refinery due to its crude slate being predominately Midland based.

In March 2017, the El Dorado, Arkansas refinery received approval from the Environmental Protection Agency for a small refinery exemption from the requirements of the renewable fuel standard for the 2016 calendar year. This waiver resulted in approximately $47.5 million of RINs expense reduction, based on an aggregated average price of $0.451 per RIN.

Logistics Segment

Delek US and its affiliates beneficially own approximately 63 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 non-controlling interests are made on a consolidated basis.

On a year-over-year basis, segment contribution margin in the first quarter 2017 decreased to $26.6 million compared to $26.8 million in the first quarter 2016. Improved performance in the wholesale marketing and terminalling segment led by a higher gross margin per barrel in west Texas were the primary factors partially offsetting the effect of lower volume in the SALA Gathering System and reduced performance from the Paline Pipeline on a year-over-year basis.

(3) Adjusted refining margin per barrel is presented to provide a measure to evaluate performance excluding inventory valuation adjustments, hedging (realized and unrealized) gains and losses, and other items at the individual refinery level. Delek US believes that the presentation of adjusted measures provides useful information to investors in assessing its results of operations at each refinery. Because adjusted refining margin per barrel may be defined differently by other companies in its industry, Delek US' definition may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
