Delek Logistics Partners, LP Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results
  • Declared quarterly distribution of $0.79 per limited partner unit; increased by 10.5% percent year-over-year
  • Distributable cash flow up 50% year over year in the third quarter
  • Distributable cash flow coverage ratio for the third quarter 2018 was 1.25x
  • Balance sheet positioned to support future growth

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Delek Logistics Partners, LP (NYSE: DKL) ("Delek Logistics") today announced its financial results for the third quarter 2018. For the three months ended September 30, 2018, Delek Logistics reported net income attributable to all partners of $23.3 million, or $0.68 per diluted common limited partner unit. This compares to net income attributable to all partners of $16.9 million, or $0.50 per diluted common limited partner unit, in the third quarter 2017. Net cash from operating activities was $6.0 million in the third quarter 2018 compared to $30.2 million in the prior year period. Distributable cash flow was $32.4 million in the third quarter 2018, compared to $21.6 million in the prior-year period.

For the third quarter 2018, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") was $43.0 million compared to $29.7 million in the prior-year period. This increase was primarily due to the contribution from the Big Spring logistics assets acquired from Delek US  Holdings, Inc. (“Delek US”) effective March 1, 2018, improved performance from the Paline Pipeline and higher gross margin per barrel in west Texas that benefited from increased crude oil drilling activity in the Permian Basin.

Uzi Yemin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Delek Logistics' general partner, remarked: "Our operations performed well during the quarter with a 45 percent increase in EBITDA and 50 percent increase in distributable cash flow on a year-over-year basis that was driven by the completion of the Big Spring acquisition and the Paline Pipeline expansion. This performance supported a distributable cash flow coverage ratio of 1.25x, which improved on a year-over-year basis. On a year to date basis through the third quarter 2018, our distributable coverage ratio is 1.26x. We were pleased to announce the 10.5 percent year-over-year increase in our declared third quarter distribution."

Yemin concluded, "We continue to explore opportunities to build on our Permian Basin position to create long-term value for our unitholders. These include ways to partner with Delek US to support its Permian Basin crude oil supply needs for its refining system, as well as third party growth options.  Delek US has recently announced additional growth in its midstream assets through construction of its Big Spring crude oil gathering system in the Permian Basin and proposed participation in a long haul crude oil pipeline project. This should increase the drop down inventory beyond the Krotz Springs logistic assets. We increased our borrowing capacity on our revolver and expect that our leverage ratio should continue to improve to a range of 4.1x to 4.3x by year end, which should better prepare us to support future growth. The combination of our financial flexibility provided by our balance sheet and our focus on growth initiatives should support a distribution per limited partner unit increase of at least 10% annually through 2019."

Distribution and Liquidity
On October 23, 2018, Delek Logistics declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.79 per common limited partner unit for the third quarter, which equates to $3.16 per common limited partner unit on an annualized basis. This distribution will be paid on November 9, 2018 to unitholders of record on November 2, 2018. This represents a 2.6 percent increase from the second quarter 2018 distribution of $0.77 per common limited partner unit, or $3.08 per common limited partner unit on an annualized basis, and a 10.5 percent increase over Delek Logistics’ third quarter 2017 distribution of $0.715 per common limited partner unit, or $2.86 per common limited partner unit annualized. For the third quarter 2018, the total cash distribution declared to all partners, including IDRs, was approximately $26.0 million. Based on the declared distribution for the third quarter 2018, the distributable cash flow coverage ratio for the third quarter was 1.25x.

As of September 30, 2018, Delek Logistics had total debt of approximately $776.7 million and cash of $19.0 million. Additional borrowing capacity, subject to certain covenants, under the $850.0 million credit facility was $316.8 million. The total leverage ratio for the third quarter 2018 was approximately 4.53x, which is within the current requirements of the maximum allowable leverage of 5.50x. At the end of September 2018, the credit facility commitments were increased from $700.0 million to $850.0 million and the maturity was extended to September 2023 from the previous maturity of December 2019.

Financial Results
Revenue for the third quarter 2018 was $164.1 million compared to $130.6 million in the prior-year period. The increase in revenue is primarily due to higher sales prices in the west Texas wholesale business, combined with the Big Spring acquisition that was effective March 1, 2018. Total operating expenses were $15.4 million in the third quarter 2018, compared to $10.7 million in the third quarter 2017. This increase was primarily due to the contribution from the acquired Big Spring assets and employee-related expenses.  Total segment contribution margin was $43.1 million in the third quarter 2018 compared to $30.8 million in the third quarter 2017. General and administrative expenses were $3.1 million for the third quarter 2018, compared to $2.8 million in the prior-year period.

Pipelines and Transportation Segment
Contribution margin in the third quarter 2018 was $25.2 million compared to $17.5 million in the third quarter 2017. This increase was primarily due to the contribution from the Big Spring acquisition in March 2018 and improved performance from the Paline Pipeline. Operating expenses were $9.5 million in the third quarter 2018 compared to $8.6 million in the prior-year period, primarily due to the Big Spring acquisition.

Wholesale Marketing and Terminalling Segment
During the third quarter 2018, contribution margin was $17.9 million, compared to $13.3 million in the third quarter 2017. This increase was primarily due to the contribution from the Big Spring acquisition in March 2018 and improved margin performance in the west Texas wholesale operations.  Operating expenses increased to $5.9 million in the third quarter 2018, compared to $2.1 million in the prior-year period primarily due to the Big Spring acquisition.

In the west Texas wholesale business, average throughput in the third quarter 2018 was 12,197 barrels per day compared to 12,929 barrels per day in the third quarter 2017. The west Texas gross margin per barrel increased year-over-year to $4.65 per barrel and included approximately $0.3 million, or $0.29 per barrel, from renewable identification numbers (RINs) generated in the quarter.  During the third quarter 2017, the west Texas gross margin per barrel was $4.00 per barrel and included $1.6 million from RINs, or $1.32 per barrel.  On a year-over-year basis, continued growth in crude oil drilling activity in the Permian Basin increased fuel demand and improved the supply/demand balance, which led to improved performance in the west Texas wholesale business.

Average terminalling throughput volume of 167,491 barrels per day during the third quarter 2018 increased on a year-over-year basis from 127,229 barrels per day in the third quarter 2017 primarily due to the addition of the Big Spring terminal.  During the third quarter 2018, average volume under the East Texas marketing agreement with Delek US was 79,404 barrels per day compared to 74,357 barrels per day during the third quarter 2017. During the third quarter 2018, average volume under the Big Spring marketing agreement with Delek US was 80,687 barrels per day.

Safe Harbor Provisions Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains “forward-looking” statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. These statements contain words such as “possible,” “believe,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “predict,” “plan,” “estimate,” “intend,” “may,” “anticipate,” “will,” “if,”  “expect” or similar expressions, as well as statements in the future tense, and can be impacted by numerous factors, including the fact that a substantial majority of Delek Logistics' contribution margin is derived from Delek US, thereby subjecting us to Delek US ' business risks; risks relating to the securities markets generally; risks and costs relating to the age and operational hazards of our assets including, without limitation, costs, penalties, regulatory or legal actions and other effects related to releases, spills and other hazards inherent in transporting and storing crude oil and intermediate and finished petroleum products; the impact of adverse market conditions affecting the utilization of Delek Logistics' assets and business performance, including margins generated by its wholesale fuel business; an inability of Delek US to successfully integrate the businesses of Delek US and Alon USA Energy, Inc., to grow as expected and realize the synergies and the other anticipated benefits of its merger with Alon, which became effective as of July 1, 2017, as it relates to our potential future growth opportunities, including dropdowns, and other potential benefits; the results of our investments in joint ventures; adverse changes in laws including with respect to tax and regulatory matters and other risks as disclosed in our annual report on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and other reports and filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. Forward looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding future growth at Delek Logistics; expansion of the Paline Pipeline and potential benefits therefrom; distributions and the amounts and timing thereof; potential dropdown inventory; ability to create long-term value for our unit holders; financial flexibility and borrowing capacity; and distribution growth of 10% or at all. There can be no assurance that actual results will not differ from those expected by management or described in forward-looking statements of Delek Logistics. 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.

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:

  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") - calculated as net income (loss) before net interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, and adjusted to include amortization of customer contract intangible assets which is included as a component of net revenues in our accompanying condensed consolidated statements of income.
  • Distributable cash flow - calculated as net cash flow from operating activities plus or minus changes in assets and liabilities, less maintenance capital expenditures net of reimbursements and other adjustments not expected to settle in cash.  Delek Logistics believes this revision is a more appropriate reflection of a liquidity measure by which users of its financial statements can assess its ability to generate cash.

EBITDA and distributable cash flow are non-U.S. GAAP supplemental financial measures that management and external users of our condensed consolidated 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, distributable cash flow and distributable cash flow coverage ratio provide useful information to investors in assessing its financial condition, its results of operations and the cash flow its business is generating. EBITDA, distributable cash flow and distributable cash flow coverage ratio 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.

Non-GAAP measures 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. These measures should not be considered substitutes for their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures. 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. See the accompanying tables in this earnings release for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

(1) During the year ended December 31, 2017, the reimbursed capital expenditure amounts in the determination of distributable cash flow were revised to reflect the accrual of reimbursable capital expenditures from Delek US rather than the cash amounts received for reimbursed capital expenditures during the three and nine months period ended September 30, 2017. This resulted in decreases to the distributable cash flow of a nominal amount and $2.5 million from the amounts presented on our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three and nine months period ended September 30, 2017, respectively.
