Delek Logistics Partners, LP Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2015 Results

  • Grew quarterly distribution by 16 percent year-over-year to $0.59 per limited partner unit
  • Management targeting 15 percent growth in distribution per limited partner unit for 2016
  • Partnership maintains flexible financial position with borrowing capacity of $347 million at year end
  • 2015 Distributable coverage ratio of 1.37x

BRENTWOOD, Tenn.--()--Delek Logistics Partners, LP (NYSE: DKL) ("Delek Logistics") today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter 2015. For the three months ended December 31, 2015, Delek Logistics reported net income attributable to all partners of $15.3 million, or $0.55 per diluted common limited partner unit. This compares to net income attributable to all partners of $20.5 million, or $0.80 per diluted common limited partner unit, in the fourth quarter 2014. Distributable cash flow was $18.9 million in the fourth quarter 2015, compared to $21.8 million in the prior-year period.

Results in the fourth quarter 2015 declined on a year-over-year basis primarily due to lower performance in the west Texas wholesale business, which was partially offset by better performance in the Pipelines and Transportation segment. The gross margin per barrel in west Texas was $1.05 in the fourth quarter 2015 compared to $6.36 per barrel in the fourth quarter 2014. This decline was due to more challenging market conditions and a reduction of approximately $1.0 million, or $0.90 per barrel, due to a change in inventory values, including lower of cost or market, as a result of a decline in prices during the quarter. Excluding this effect, the gross margin per barrel would have been approximately $1.95 per barrel, compared to the reported $1.05 per barrel. This inventory effect lowered distributable cash flow for the period.

For 2015, net income attributable to all partners was $66.8 million, or $2.52 per diluted common limited partner unit. This compares to net income attributable to all partners of $72.0 million, or $2.85 per diluted common limited partner unit for 2014. Distributable cash flow was $81.3 million in 2015 compared to $80.3 million in 2014, while earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") was $96.5 million in 2015, compared to $95.4 million in 2014.

Uzi Yemin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Delek Logistics' general partner, remarked: "Our business model is anchored by stable fee based contracts, which served us well during a year in which uncertainty and volatility in energy markets created a challenging environment for our industry. For 2015, our EBITDA and distributable cash flow improved compared to 2014, which supported an increase in our declared distributions per limited partner unit for 2015 to $2.24 from $1.90 for 2014. We ended the year with a 3.5 times leverage ratio and $347 million of capacity on our credit facility."

Yemin concluded, "Our pipeline development projects through two joint ventures with unaffiliated third parties are moving toward completion in the second half of 2016. In addition, we continue to evaluate potential third party acquisition opportunities and options to partner with Delek US to provide future growth. With a focus on creating long term value for our unit holders, we believe that our balance sheet should allow the flexibility to take advantage of opportunities, while targeting growth in our distribution per limited partner unit by 15 percent for 2016."

Distribution and Liquidity

On January 25, 2016, Delek Logistics declared a quarterly cash distribution for the fourth quarter of $0.59 per limited partner unit, which equates to $2.36 per limited partner unit on an annualized basis. This distribution was paid on February 12, 2016 to unitholders of record on February 5, 2016. This represents a 3.5 percent increase from the third quarter 2015 distribution of $0.57 per limited partner unit, or $2.28 per limited partner unit on an annualized basis, and a 15.7 percent increase over Delek Logistics’ fourth quarter 2014 distribution of $0.51 per limited partner unit, or $2.04 per limited partner unit annualized. For the fourth quarter 2015, the total cash distribution declared to all partners, including IDRs, was $16.1 million. For 2015 the total cash distribution declared to all partners, including IDRs, was $59.3 million.

As of December 31, 2015, Delek Logistics had total debt of $351.6 million. Additional borrowing capacity, subject to certain covenants, under the $700.0 million credit facility was approximately $346.9 million.

Financial Results

Results in the fourth quarter 2015, compared to the prior-year period, benefited from the acquisition of the Tyler crude oil storage tank and El Dorado rail offloading facility, which were acquired on March 31, 2015, from subsidiaries of Delek US Holdings, Inc. ("Delek US"). For accounting purposes, the expenses from operations prior to the acquisition of the Tyler crude oil storage tank and El Dorado rail offloading facility are attributed to their respective predecessor periods. For purposes of comparison, results discussed in the text of this press release exclude predecessor costs during the respective periods. However, these costs are shown in the financial statements with a reconciliation provided in the tables attached to this release.

Revenue for the fourth quarter 2015 was $108.9 million and contribution margin was $26.2 million, which compares to revenue of $173.3 million and a contribution margin of $29.3 million in the fourth quarter 2014. The decrease in contribution margin is primarily due to lower performance in the west Texas wholesale business, which was partially offset by improved performance in the Pipelines and Transportation segment. Total operating expenses were $11.7 million compared to $9.7 million in the fourth quarter 2014, with the increase primarily due to maintenance related expenses. General and administrative expenses decreased to $2.3 million for the fourth quarter 2015 compared to $3.3 million in the prior-year period, which was primarily due to lower professional services expenses on a year-over-year basis. For the fourth quarter 2015, EBITDA was $23.6 million compared to $26.1 million in the prior-year period.

Pipelines and Transportation Segment

The Pipelines and Transportation segment's fourth quarter 2015 contribution margin of $17.5 million improved from $14.1 million in the fourth quarter 2014. This increase is primarily attributed to a higher contribution from the Paline Pipeline and fees associated with the El Dorado rail offloading racks and Tyler crude oil storage tank purchased on March 31, 2015.

Wholesale Marketing and Terminalling Segment

Contribution margin for the Wholesale Marketing and Terminalling segment was $8.7 million in the fourth quarter 2015, compared to $15.2 million in the fourth quarter 2014. This change on a year-over-year basis was primarily due to a lower gross margin per barrel and lower volume sold in the west Texas wholesale business, which was partially offset by improved performance in the east Texas assets.

In the west Texas wholesale business, throughput was 12,488 barrels per day compared to 15,441 barrels per day in the fourth quarter 2014. The wholesale gross margin per barrel in west Texas decreased year-over-year to $1.05 and included approximately $0.9 million, or $0.79 per barrel from renewable identification numbers (RINs) generated in the quarter. Also, the fourth quarter 2015 gross margin was reduced by approximately $1.0 million, or $0.90 per barrel, due to a reduction in inventory values, including lower of cost or market, as a result of a decline in prices during the fourth quarter 2015. During the fourth quarter 2014, the wholesale gross margin per barrel was $6.36 and included $1.2 million from RINs, or $0.82 per barrel. The fourth quarter 2014 gross margin per barrel benefited as the local market sales price in west Texas did not decline as quickly as the Gulf Coast light product prices, thereby expanding the margin per barrel. On a year-over-year basis, reduced drilling activity in west Texas as a result of lower crude oil prices lowered demand in the area, creating a more challenging market environment and playing a role in the change in gross margin per barrel and volume sold.

Both terminalling and the east Texas marketing throughputs benefited from higher volume at Delek US' Tyler, Texas refinery. Terminalling throughput volume of 114,136 barrels per day during the quarter increased on a year-over-year basis from 100,396 barrels per day in the fourth quarter 2014 primarily due to higher throughput at the Tyler and Big Sandy, Texas terminals. During the fourth quarter 2015, volume under the east Texas marketing agreement with Delek US was 66,950 barrels per day compared to 62,172 barrels per day during the fourth quarter 2014.

Project Development Update

In March 2015, Delek Logistics, through wholly owned subsidiaries, entered into two joint ventures (Caddo Pipeline and RIO Pipeline) that will construct logistics assets. Delek Logistics’ total projected investment for the two joint ventures is approximately $96.0 million and will be financed through a combination of cash from operations and borrowings under its revolving credit facility. Through December 31, 2015, approximately $41.3 million has been invested in these projects. Both of these projects are expected to be constructed by the second half of 2016.

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:

The following tables present financial and operational information for the three months and year ended December 31, 2015 and 2014. On February 10, 2014, Delek Logistics acquired substantially all of the active storage tanks and product terminal located adjacent to Delek US' El Dorado refinery (the "El Dorado Assets"). 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. For all periods presented through February 10, 2014, the acquisition date of the El Dorado Assets, and March 31, 2015, the acquisition date of the Logistics Assets, the retrospective adjustments were made to the financial statements. The historical results of the El Dorado Assets and Logistics Assets, prior to the acquisition dates, are referred to as the "El Dorado Assets Predecessor" and "Logistics Assets Predecessor" in the respective periods.

Non-GAAP Disclosures:

EBITDA and distributable cash flow 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 and distributable cash flow provide useful information to investors in assessing its financial condition, its results of operations and cash flow its business is generating. EBITDA and distributable cash flow 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 and distributable cash flow 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.

We also include the results of our operations excluding the results of our Predecessors. We believe that the presentation of our results of operations excluding results of our Predecessors 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.
