BRENTWOOD, Tenn., May 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DK) (“Delek US”) today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2019. Delek US reported first quarter 2019 net income of $149.3 million, or $1.90 per diluted share, versus a net loss of $(40.4) million, or $(0.49) per basic share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. On an adjusted basis, Delek US reported adjusted net income of $121.2 million, or $1.54 per diluted share for the first quarter 2019. This compares to adjusted net income of $21.5 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the prior-year period. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") was $237.5 million compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $104.9 million in the prior-year period. Reconciliations of net income reported under U.S. GAAP to adjusted net income and Adjusted EBITDA are included in the financial tables attached to this release.

Quarterly results improved year-over-year primarily due to better performance in the refining segment. The refining segment contribution margin increased to $294.3 million in the first quarter 2019, compared to $133.2 million in the prior-year period. The improved results in refining benefited from a more favorable Midland-Brent crude oil price differential, lower RINs expense and an active inventory management strategy during a period of rising prices. Included in our reported and adjusted results on a pre-tax basis in the first quarter 2019, was approximately $61.0 million of inventory valuation benefit excluding the effect of a lower of cost or market gain. Reported and adjusted results in the period also included a pre-tax expense of approximately $9.0 million related to an asset disposal and emission allowance cost in the refining segment. In the prior year period, refining results included a benefit of approximately $115.5 million related to a combination of the 2017 RINs waivers and a biodiesel tax credit, while the first quarter of 2019 did not realize any benefit from either RINs waivers or a biodiesel tax credit.

Uzi Yemin, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delek US, stated, "This was a great start to 2019. Performance benefited from our WTI-linked crude slate through the widening of the Midland-Brent crude oil differential and solid commercial execution as market conditions improved. The capture rates in our refining operations have continued to improve as sustainable commercial initiatives have been implemented by our team. These initiatives should benefit us going forward, along with a wider Midland-Brent crude oil differential that has averaged $11.60 per barrel so far in the second quarter. Our commitment to return cash to shareholders continued in the first quarter as $67 million was returned through dividends and share repurchases. We expect to repurchase $60 million of our stock in the second quarter and announced an increase in our dividend for the first quarter 2019. Through our repurchase program, we have reduced our weighted average share count by 13 percent since the peak in the second quarter 2018."

Mr. Yemin continued, "We remain focused on developing our midstream operations. During the first quarter, we exited the proposed PGC Partnership allowing us to explore more favorable options to participate in one of the announced long haul crude oil pipelines. The Big Spring Gathering System continues to develop which, when combined with our potential participation in a long haul pipeline, should support our target to achieve $350 to $370 million of EBITDA from our midstream operations by 2023."

Alkylation Project Completed

The alkylation unit at the Krotz Springs refinery was completed in early April providing additional flexibility to the refinery. The total cost was approximately $138.0 million. This project is expected to generate an annualized incremental net income of approximately $33.2 million and incremental EBITDA of approximately $50.0 million based on current market prices. This unit should improve the ability to convert low value products into gasoline, enable the refinery to produce multiple summer gasoline grades and increase octane, allowing the refinery to produce premium gasoline. Because of the conversion improvement at the refinery from this project, its returns are expected to be less dependent on the crack spread environment over time.

Regular Quarterly Dividend and Share Repurchase

Delek US announced today its Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.28 per share. This represents a 3.7 percent increase from our previous regular quarterly dividend. Shareholders of record on May 20, 2019 will receive this cash dividend payable on June 3, 2019.

Based on settlement dates during the first quarter 2019, Delek US repurchased approximately 1.3 million shares of Delek US common stock for approximately $46.2 million, with an average price of $35.73 per share. At March 31, 2019, there was approximately $363.6 million of total available authorization remaining to repurchase shares. Based on settlement date, approximately $3.8 million of repurchases were completed in early April as part of the first quarter 2019 program. Delek US expects additional repurchases of approximately $60.0 million of Delek US common stock during the second quarter 2019.

Liquidity

As of March 31, 2019, Delek US had a cash balance of $989.7 million and total consolidated debt of $1,761.1 million, resulting in net debt of $771.4 million. As of March 31, 2019, Delek US' subsidiary, Delek Logistics Partners, LP ("Delek Logistics"), had $705.2 million of total debt and $5.4 million of cash, which is included in the consolidated amounts on Delek US' balance sheet. Excluding Delek Logistics, Delek US had approximately $984.3 million in cash and $1,055.9 million of debt, or a $71.6 million net debt position.

Refining Segment

Refining segment contribution margin was $294.3 million in the first quarter 2019 compared to $133.2 million in the first quarter 2018. On a year-over-year basis, results benefited from a wider discount for the Midland to Brent differential, lower RINs expense and a higher crack spread. In addition, as discussed earlier, results in the first quarter 2019 benefited from a rising price environment during the period. Performance at the Krotz Springs, Louisiana refinery continued to improve as it benefited from a crude slate with increased amounts of Midland crude oil and better net-backs as a result of lower RINs prices. The first quarter 2018 results included a benefit from RINs waivers and a biodiesel tax credit that were not present in the first quarter 2019. The Gulf Coast 5-3-2 crack spread increased to $13.02 per barrel for the first quarter 2019, compared to $11.53 per barrel for the same period in 2018.

Results during the first quarter 2019 include a Midland to Cushing market differential during the period that was higher than the average market differential due to an inventory timing effect. The estimated realized Midland to Cushing differential included in reported results was approximately $4.26 per barrel during the first quarter 2019, taking into consideration this inventory timing effect. During the El Dorado refinery turnaround, our refining system continued to process all of our available Midland crude oil.

During the first quarter 2019, the Midland WTI crude oil differential to Brent crude oil was an average discount of $10.13 per barrel compared to $4.70 per barrel in the prior-year period. The Midland WTI crude oil differential to Cushing WTI was an average discount of $3.86 per barrel in first quarter 2019 compared to an average premium of $0.37 per barrel in the first quarter 2018. Contango in the oil futures market was $0.36 per barrel in the first quarter 2019, compared to backwardation of $0.12 per barrel in the first quarter 2018.

During the first quarter 2019, the Environmental Protection Agency did not finalize its decision related to small refinery exemption from the requirements of the renewable fuel standard for the 2018 calendar year. In the first quarter 2018, the El Dorado, Arkansas and Krotz Springs, Louisiana refineries received approval from the Environmental Protection Agency for a small refinery exemption from the requirements of the renewable fuel standard for the 2017 calendar year. This waiver resulted in approximately $59.3 million of RINs expense reduction at El Dorado and $31.6 million at Krotz Springs for the first quarter 2018.

The U.S. Congress did not approve a biodiesel blenders tax credit during the first quarter 2019. In the first quarter 2018, approximately $24.6 million of income was recognized in the renewables business in the refining segment from a $1 per gallon biodiesel blenders federal tax credit that was approved in February 2018 on a retroactive basis for calendar year 2017.

Logistics Segment

The logistics segment contribution margin in the first quarter 2019 increased to $40.1 million compared to $36.3 million in the first quarter 2018. The primary factor that increased contribution margin was a benefit from the drop down of the Big Spring refinery logistics assets that was effective March 1, 2018, which was partially offset by a lower gross margin in west Texas wholesale marketing.

Retail Segment

For the first quarter 2019, contribution margin was $10.2 million compared to $11.9 million in the prior year period for the retail segment. Merchandise sales were approximately $75.3 million with an average retail margin of 31.0% in the first quarter 2019, compared to merchandise sales of approximately $80.5 million with an average retail margin of 30.2% in the prior year period. Approximately 53.9 million retail fuel gallons were sold at an average margin of $0.19 per gallon in the first quarter 2019 compared to 53.7 million retail fuel gallons sold at an average margin of $0.19 per gallon in the first quarter 2018. On a same store sales basis in the first quarter 2019, merchandise sales increased 0.8% and fuel gallons sold increased 4.1% compared to the prior-year period.

Corporate/Other Segment

Contribution margin from the Corporate/Other segment was a loss of $10.8 million in the first quarter 2019 compared to a loss of $29.1 million in the prior-year period. The net hedging gain included in this segment in the first quarter 2019 was $8.8 million compared to a net hedging loss of $17.8 million in the prior-year period.

Non-GAAP Disclosures:

Our management uses certain “non-GAAP” operational measures to evaluate our operating segment performance and non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate past performance and prospects for the future to supplement our GAAP financial information presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These financial and operational non-GAAP measures are important factors in assessing our operating results and profitability and include:

  • Adjusted net income (loss) - calculated as net income attributable to Delek US adjusted for certain identified infrequently occurring items, non-cash items and items that are not attributable to our on-going operations (collectively, "Adjusting Items") recorded during the period;

  • Adjusted unrealized hedging (gains) losses - calculated as GAAP unrealized (gains) losses on commodity derivatives that are economic hedges but not designated as hedging instruments adjusted to exclude unrealized (gains) losses where the instrument has matured but where it has not cash settled as of the balance sheet date. This adjustment more appropriately aligns matured commodity derivatives gains and losses with the recognition of the related cost of materials and other. There are no premiums paid or received at the inception of the derivative contracts, and upon settlement there is no cost recovery associated with these contracts;

  • Adjusted net income (loss) per share - calculated as adjusted net income (loss) divided by weighted average shares outstanding, assuming dilution, as adjusted for any anti-dilutive instruments that may not be permitted for consideration in GAAP earnings per share calculations but that nonetheless favorably impact dilution;

  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") - calculated as net income attributable to Delek adjusted to add back interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization;

  • Adjusted EBITDA - calculated as EBITDA adjusted for the identified adjusting items in adjusted net income (loss) that do not relate to interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation or amortization, and adjusted to include income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests;

  • Refining margin - calculated as the difference between total refining revenues and total cost of materials and other; and

  • Refining margin per sales barrel - calculated as refining margin divided by our average refining sales in barrels per day (excluding purchased barrels) multiplied by 1,000 and multiplied by the number of days in the period.

We believe these non-GAAP operational and financial measures are useful to investors, lenders, ratings agencies and analysts to assess our ongoing performance because, when reconciled to their most comparable GAAP financial measure, they provide improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that we believe are not indicative of our core operating performance and they may obscure our underlying results and trends.

Non-GAAP measures have important limitations as analytical tools, because they exclude some, but not all, items that affect net earnings and operating income. These measures should not be considered substitutes for their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures. Additionally, because adjusted net income or loss, adjusted net income or loss per share, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA or any of our other identified non-GAAP measures may be defined differently by other companies in its industry, Delek US' definition may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. See the accompanying tables in this earnings release for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

Certain changes to presentation of the prior period statements of income have been made in order to conform to the current period presentation, primarily relating to the addition of a subtotal entitled 'cost of sales' which includes all costs directly attributable to the generation of the related revenue, as defined by GAAP, and the retitling of what was previously referred to as 'cost of goods sold' to 'cost of materials and other'. Operating expenses and depreciation and amortization related to the wholesale business and the retail business are excluded from cost of sales because they primarily relate to costs associated with selling the products.

Income tax benefit for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 reflects a correction made in our 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K (filed on March 1, 2019) to record additional deferred tax expense totaling $5.5 million related to the recognition of a valuation allowance on deferred tax assets recognized in connection with the Big Spring Logistic Assets Acquisition not previously reported in our March 31, 2018 Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed on May 10, 2018. Such amount is not considered material to the financial statements or the trend of earnings for that period. See Note 23 to our annual audited consolidated financial statements included in Part II, Item 8 of our 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on March 1, 2019 for further discussion.

(5) For our Tyler and El Dorado refineries, we compare our per barrel refining product margin to the Gulf Coast 5-3-2 crack spread consisting of WTI Cushing crude, U.S. Gulf Coast CBOB and U.S, Gulf Coast Pipeline No. 2 heating oil (high sulfur diesel). For our Big Spring refinery, we compare our per barrel refined product margin to the Gulf Coast 3-2-1 crack spread consisting of WTI Cushing crude, Gulf Coast 87 Conventional gasoline and Gulf Coast ultra low sulfur diesel, and for our Krotz Springs refinery, we compare our per barrel refined product margin to the Gulf Coast 2-1-1 crack spread consisting of LLS crude oil, Gulf Coast 87 Conventional gasoline and U.S, Gulf Coast Pipeline No. 2 heating oil (high sulfur diesel). The Tyler refinery's crude oil input is primarily WTI Midland and east Texas, while the El Dorado refinery's crude input is primarily combination of WTI Midland, local Arkansas and other domestic inland crude oil. The Big Spring refinery’s crude oil input is primarily comprised of WTS and WTI Midland. The Krotz Springs refinery’s crude oil input is primarily comprised of LLS and WTI Midland. The Big Spring and Krotz Springs refineries were acquired July 1, 2017 as part of the Delek US/Alon USA Merger, so Gulf Coast 3-2-1 and 2-1-1 crack spreads, LLS and WTS statistics are presented only for the period Delek US owned these refineries.

(1) 

Adjusted refining margin per barrel is presented to provide a measure to evaluate performance excluding inventory valuation adjustments 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.
  

(2) 

Tyler adjusted refining margins exclude the following items. 
 

Net inventory valuation benefit

- There was approximately $38.1 million and $0.5 million of valuation benefit in the first quarter 2019 and 2018, respectively. These amounts resulted from lower of cost or market adjustments on LIFO inventory in the respective periods.

Biodiesel tax credit allocation - There was approximately $15.4 million related to the biodiesel tax credit that was allocated to Tyler in the first quarter of 2018 that is included in the renewables portion of the refining segment.

Net inventory valuation benefit (loss)

- There were $3.7 million and $(0.1) million of valuation benefit (loss) in the first quarter 2019 and 2018, respectively. These amounts resulted from lower of cost or market adjustments on FIFO inventory in the respective periods.

RIN waiver - During the first quarter 2019, the Environmental Protection Agency did not finalize its decision related to small refinery exemption from the requirements of the renewable fuel standard for the 2018 calendar year. In March 2018, the El Dorado refinery received approval from the Environmental Protection Agency for a small refinery exemption from the requirements of the renewable fuel standard for the 2017 calendar year. This waiver equated to a benefit of approximately $59.3 million recognized in the first quarter 2018.
