We expect this acquisition to be immediately accretive to our distributable cash flow.  We are pleased with this acquisition and continue to actively look for additional growth opportunities," said Calumet's Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bill Grube.

Calumet intends to finance the Montana Refining Acquisition through a combination of cash on hand and borrowings under its senior secured revolving credit facility. Calumet's obligation to consummate the Montana Refining Acquisition is not conditioned upon the receipt of financing.
