Delek US Holdings Reports Record Second Quarter 2012 Net Income

Company reports second quarter net income of $1.15 per diluted share and adjusted net income of $1.17 per diluted share

BRENTWOOD, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 8, 2012-- Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DK), a diversified energy company with assets in the petroleum refining, marketing and retail industries, today announced financial results for the second quarter 2012.

For the three months ended June 30, 2012, Delek US reported net income of $67.8 million, or $1.15 per diluted share, versus net income of $62.1 million, or $1.08 per diluted share in the second quarter 2011.

Excluding special items, the Company reported adjusted net income of $69.0 million, or $1.17 per share, in the second quarter 2012. Adjusted net income in the second quarter 2012 excludes $1.2 million of after tax expense or $0.02 per diluted share, incurred in connection with the potential initial public offering of our logistics assets. This compares to adjusted net income of $52.9 million, or $0.92 per diluted share, in the second quarter 2011.

Uzi Yemin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delek US Holdings, remarked: “Our Company continues to perform extremely well as all three of our segments delivered year-over-year improvements in contribution margin. In our refining segment, we were able to overcome challenges and still post strong operating results. Our refineries' proximity to increasing supplies of crude oil continues to provide us access to higher volumes of cost advantaged WTI-linked crude oil. Additionally, during the second quarter, we took strategic steps to create flexibility to supply the El Dorado refinery with up to 15,000 barrels per day of crude delivered via rail including heavy Canadian, Bakken and mid-continent crudes. These steps, in addition to increased locally sourced crude, supported our ability to average more than 137,000 barrels per day of combined throughput at our refineries during the month of July."

The second quarter was positively impacted by the increase in the benchmark Gulf Coast 5-3-2 crack spread, which averaged $25.42 per barrel during the second quarter 2012, compared to $23.14 per barrel during the same period last year. Overall, a lower crude price environment and higher asphalt prices also contributed positively to performance.

As of June 30, 2012, Delek US had a record cash balance of $321.1 million and total debt of $422.8 million. During the second quarter the Company was able to reduce its net debt to $101.7 million as of June 30, 2012 compared to $310.9 million as of June 30, 2011.

Yemin concluded, “Several recent positive developments demonstrate the strength of our businesses and the execution of our strategic initiatives. First, we announced our third special dividend during the last 14 months. Second, we filed a registration statement for the initial public offering of our logistics assets. Finally, we completed both of our previously announced 'quick hit' projects on time and under budget. Both the LSR project at El Dorado and the VTB project at our Tyler refinery were completed in July and should deliver incremental cash flows in the future. With improved crude and feedstock flexibility in our refining system, support of rail supplied crude and continued increase in demand for our products, our outlook remains positive and we are excited about our opportunities to deliver additional value to our shareholders in the near and mid-term future.”

Refining Segment

Refining segment contribution margin increased to $133.2 million in the second quarter 2012, versus $122.3 million in second quarter 2011. During the second quarter 2012, the Tyler refinery generated $76.4 million in contribution margin, while the El Dorado refinery reported $56.8 million in contribution margin.

The year-over-year improvement in segment contribution margin was attributable to the inclusion of a full quarter of El Dorado results in the Company's consolidated statement of operations, improved Gulf Coast refined product margins, and an increase in asphalt pricing. In addition, we benefited from our access to cost-advantaged domestic crude sources, such as Midland sweet crude, which traded on average $4.86 per barrel below the WTI Cushing benchmark during the second quarter of 2012.

Tyler, Texas Refinery

Total throughputs at the Tyler refinery were 56,729 barrels per day in the second quarter 2012, versus 60,034 barrels per day in the second quarter 2011. Total sales volumes were 58,644 barrels per day in the second quarter 2012, compared to 60,140 barrels per day in the second quarter 2011. The decreases were attributable to a temporary disruption in operations following a power outage on May 7, 2012. The Tyler refinery returned to full operations on May 26 and has processed an average of over 60,000 barrels per day of crude since that time.

Direct operating expense was $31.3 million in the second quarter 2012, versus $30.6 million in the second quarter 2011. This increase was due to the maintenance costs related to the previously mentioned temporary disruption in operations.

Tyler's refining margin, excluding intercompany product marketing fees, was $20.87 per barrel sold in the second quarter 2012, compared to $21.26 per barrel sold for the same quarter last year.

El Dorado, Arkansas Refinery

Total throughputs at the El Dorado refinery were 70,368 barrels per day in the second quarter 2012. Total sales volumes were 83,254 barrels per day, including 9,999 barrels per day of finished product buy/sell activities.

Delek has operated the refinery at more than 70,000 barrels per day of throughput during the quarter despite the temporary suspension of crude oil deliveries from a supplier's pipeline, which has caused reduced throughput rates since May 1, 2012. The Company was able to do so through the combination of processing 3,868 barrels per day of intermediate products from Tyler, sourcing additional local crude oil and the introduction of crude supplied by rail.

Direct operating expense was $28.2 million in the second quarter 2012, compared to $19.1 million during the 63 days we operated in the second quarter of 2011.

El Dorado refining margin, excluding finished product buy/sell activity, decreased to $12.74 per barrel compared to $13.71 per barrel sold during the 63 days we operated in the second quarter of 2011.

Retail Segment

Retail segment contribution margin increased to $18.2 million in the second quarter 2012, versus $14.6 million in the second quarter 2011. Increases in fuel and merchandise same store sales and lower overall operating expenses contributed to improved performance as compared to second quarter 2011. Second quarter 2012 results were positively impacted by same store merchandise sales growth of 4.3 percent, which was supported by same store food service sales growth of 9.3 percent. In addition, same store fuel gallons sold increased 2.2 percent as declining fuel prices coincided with the peak driving season. The merchandise margin was 29.7 percent and the fuel margin was 18.2 cents per gallon for second quarter 2012.

At the conclusion of the second quarter 2012, the retail segment operated 374 locations, versus 390 locations at the end of the second quarter 2011.

Marketing Segment

Marketing segment contribution margin improved to $7.5 million in the second quarter 2012, versus $5.1 million in the second quarter 2011. The improved results were supported by an increase in total sales volumes of 4.5 percent, to 16,670 barrels per day, and the addition of bio-fuel sales.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Delek US reports its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). However, management believes that certain non-GAAP performance measures may provide users of financial information (i) increased transparency into the Company's operations; and (ii) additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. For these reasons, management is presenting certain adjustments to GAAP results in order to reflect the ongoing operations of the business. Management believes these measures will help investors better understand and evaluate the Company.

Delek US provides the following reconciliation schedule in calculating “adjusted” net income from operations, a non-GAAP measure.

The following item(s) are excluded in the calculation of adjusted net income from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011.
