Valero Energy Reports First Quarter 2011 Results

(b) During the fourth quarter of 2009, Valero permanently shut down its refinery in Delaware City, Delaware, and wrote down the book value of the refinery assets to net realizable value, resulting in a loss on the shutdown of $1.9 billion ($1.2 billion after taxes). On June 1, 2010, Valero sold the shutdown refinery assets and associated terminal and pipeline assets to PBF Energy Partners LP (an entity related to the buyer of the Paulsboro Refinery) for $220 million in cash proceeds, resulting in a gain on the sale of the refinery assets of $92 million ($58 million after taxes) and an insignificant gain on the sale of the terminal and pipeline assets. The results of operations of the shutdown refinery for the three months ended March 31, 2010 are reflected in discontinued operations. In addition, the refining segment and Northeast Region operating highlights for the three months ended March 31, 2010 exclude the Delaware City Refinery. The terminal and pipeline assets associated with the refinery were not shut down in 2009 and continued to be operated until the date of their sale, and the results of operations of those assets for the three months ended March 31, 2010 are reflected in continuing operations.

(c) Valero acquired three ethanol plants in the first quarter of 2010. The Statement of Income Data includes the results of operations of those plants commencing on their respective acquisition dates. Two plants were acquired from ASA Ethanol Holdings, LLC and the third plant was acquired from Renew Energy LLC. Ethanol production volumes reflected herein are based on total production during each period divided by actual calendar days per period.

(d) Credit card transaction processing fees incurred by Valero's Retail business segment of $21 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010 were reclassified from Retail operating expenses to cost of sales. In addition, the Retail-U.S. and Retail-Canada operating highlights for the three months ended March 31, 2010 have been restated to reflect this reclassification.
