Delek US Holdings Reports Second Quarter 2017 Results

  • Closed Alon transaction on July 1 creating a Permian-focused diversified downstream energy company
  • Focused on creating approximately $95.0 million of annual synergies
  • Ability to unlock value of increased logistics dropdown inventory
  • Financial flexibility with approximately $572 million of cash at June 30, 2017

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Aug. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:DK) (“Delek US”) today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2017. Delek US reported a second quarter net loss of $(37.9) million, or $(0.61) per basic share, versus a net loss of $(7.0) million, or $(0.11) per basic share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. On an adjusted basis Delek US reported a net loss of $(25.0) million, or $(0.40) per basic share for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, compared to a net loss of $(5.1) million, or $(0.08) per basic share on an adjusted basis in the prior year period. Reconciliations of GAAP net loss to adjusted net loss are included in the financial tables attached to this release.

Both the reported and adjusted results in the second quarter 2017 included a pre-tax hedging loss of $31.7 million, or $0.31 per share after tax, related to a realized loss on a crude oil inventory hedging strategy associated with Delek US' supply and offtake agreement with J. Aron at the El Dorado, Arkansas refinery. The hedges were entered into in late 2014 in anticipation of the expiration of the supply and offtake agreement in the second quarter 2017. In the first quarter 2017, Delek US elected to extend the term of the supply and offtake agreement until April 2020.

On a year-over-year basis during the second quarter, lower results were driven by reduced performance in the refining segment. The benefits of a higher Gulf Coast 5-3-2 crack spread and lower RINs expense were offset primarily by the crude oil inventory hedging loss, an inventory valuation loss compared to a benefit in the prior year period and lower margins on residual products, including asphalt. The lower performance in refining was partially offset by improved performance in the logistics segment on a year-over-year basis.

Uzi Yemin, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delek US, stated, "On July 1 we completed the Alon transaction, and I want to thank the employees of both companies for their efforts during the process. We are pleased with our progress toward integration and we are on track to achieve our goal of creating approximately $95 million of annual synergies in 2018. The combined company will be one of the largest buyers of crude in the Permian Basin and will have refining, logistics, marketing and retail assets in that area creating opportunities for future growth."

Yemin concluded, "We plan to move forward with unlocking the value associated with approximately $78 million of logistics EBITDA through future potential dropdowns to Delek Logistics. Our first dropdown of certain asphalt terminals is expected to occur in the second half of 2017. Also, Delek Logistics is well positioned to support the larger operations of the combined company. Based on the June 30 balance sheet for each company, the combined company had a projected capitalization of approximately $788.0 million cash and $600.0 million net debt. As we move forward with integration and evaluating growth opportunities, we remain focused on creating long-term shareholder value."

Alon Investment Update
On July 1, 2017, Delek US acquired all of the outstanding shares of Alon USA Energy, Inc. ("Alon") common stock which Delek US did not already own in an all-stock transaction. Delek US previously owned approximately 33.7 million shares of common stock of Alon. Under terms of the agreement, the owners of the remaining outstanding shares in Alon received a fixed exchange ratio of 0.504 Delek US shares for each share of Alon.

At June 30, 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 $0.4 million in the second quarter 2017 compared to a loss of $(10.4) million in the second quarter 2016. Delek's equity investment income from Alon was reduced by approximately $1.1 million for transaction costs that Alon incurred during the second quarter 2017.

Due to the timing of the completion of the acquisition on July 1, 2017, Alon will not file a Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or issue a press release to announce quarterly results. Delek US furnished unaudited financial statements and supplemental financial data for Alon's second quarter performance on a Form 8-K filed August 2, 2017. At June 30, 2017 Alon had approximately $215.3 million of cash and $564.8 million of total debt.

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 August 23, 2017 will receive this cash dividend payable on September 13, 2017.

Liquidity
As of June 30, 2017, Delek US had a cash balance of $572.3 million and total consolidated debt of $822.5 million, resulting in net debt of $250.2 million. As of June 30, 2017, Delek US' subsidiary, Delek Logistics Partners, LP (NYSE:DKL) ("Delek Logistics"), had $396.9 million of total debt and $4.9 million of cash, which is included in the consolidated amounts on Delek US' balance sheet. Excluding Delek Logistics, Delek US had approximately $567.4 million in cash and $425.6 million of debt, or a $141.8 million net cash position.

Refining Segment
Refining segment contribution margin was $(14.0) million in the second quarter 2017 compared to $40.0 million in the second quarter 2016. On a year-over-year basis, results benefited from a Gulf Coast 5-3-2 crack spread that increased to $10.86 per barrel for the second quarter 2017, compared to $9.80 per barrel for the same period in 2016. In addition, RINs expense related to renewable fuels blending obligations declined to approximately $5.5 million in the second quarter 2017, compared to $12.3 million in the prior year period.

However, a combination of factors more than offset a higher crack spread and lower RINs expense to reduce contribution margin on a year-over-year basis. First, results in the second quarter 2017 were reduced by approximately $31.7 million related to a realized loss on a crude oil inventory hedging strategy associated with the supply and offtake agreement with J. Aron at the El Dorado refinery. This loss was included in the second quarter 2017 net hedging loss of $29.5 million compared to a $17.4 million hedging loss in the prior year period. Second, there was a total inventory loss of $14.0 million in the second quarter 2017 compared to a benefit of $12.9 million in the prior year period with the lower of cost or market valuation primarily driving the change on a year-over-year basis. Finally, on a year-over-year basis lower margins on residual products, including asphalt, reduced performance at the El Dorado refinery.

The Midland WTI crude differential to Cushing WTI was an average discount of $0.83 per barrel in second quarter 2017 compared to an average discount of $0.18 per barrel in the second quarter 2016. In addition, contango in the oil futures market decreased to $0.54 per barrel in the second quarter 2017, compared to contango of $1.43 per barrel in the second quarter 2016. On a year-over-year basis, while the combination of the Midland discount and contango resulted in a reduced average crude oil price per barrel in the second quarter 2017, the benefit declined by $0.24 per barrel compared to the second quarter 2016. This decline in benefit on a year-over-year basis reduced margins at both refineries.

Logistics Segment
Delek US and its affiliates beneficially own approximately 63.5 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 second quarter 2017 increased to $31.7 million compared to $30.0 million in the second quarter 2016. The wholesale marketing and terminalling performance led by a higher gross margin per barrel in west Texas was the primary factor 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.
