Delek Logistics Partners Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results

Stocks in this article: DKL

Delek Logistics Partners, LP (NYSE: DKL) ("Delek Logistics"), a growth-oriented master limited partnership focused on owning and operating midstream energy infrastructure, today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

For the third quarter 2013, Delek Logistics reported net income of $11.4 million, or $0.51 per diluted limited partner unit. Distributable cash flow of $12.9 million was better than the forecast provided in the prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 1, 2012 (the “Prospectus”).

Distribution Update

On October 25, 2013, Delek Logistics declared a regular cash distribution of approximately $9.9 million, or $0.405 per unit payable on November 14, 2013, which equates to $1.62 per unit on an annualized basis. This represents a 2.5 percent increase from the second quarter 2013 distribution of $0.395 per unit, or $1.58 per unit on an annualized basis, and is 8.0 percent higher than Delek Logistics' minimum quarterly distribution of $0.375 per unit, or $1.50 per unit on an annualized basis.

Uzi Yemin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Delek Logistics' general partner, remarked: “Our business continued to perform well during the third quarter. Both EBITDA and distributable cash flow during the period exceeded our forecast provided in the Prospectus. Demand in the Texas marketing operations and throughput in the SALA Gathering System were better than forecast . In addition, RINs associated with ongoing ethanol blending activity in the west Texas operations benefited our wholesale gross profit. The Tyler logistics assets acquired from Delek US in July performed well, exceeding our throughput expectations during the quarter. We expanded the business during the third quarter with two acquisitions and recently completed our third acquisition with the purchase of a terminal in North Little Rock, Arkansas during October. Our quarterly distribution was recently increased, and going forward, we expect to continue to have the financial flexibility that will support future growth through additional asset purchases from Delek US and third parties.”

Financial Results

Delek Logistics commenced operations on November 7, 2012 upon the completion of its initial public offering (the “Offering”) and the concurrent contribution of certain assets from its sponsor, Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DK) ("Delek US"). For accounting purposes, the results from operations prior to the Offering from the assets and entities that were contributed to Delek Logistics concurrent with the Offering, were attributed to Delek Logistics Partners, LP Predecessor (our “Predecessor”). Therefore, results from operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 show the results of the Predecessor. Because management believes results presented from this prior year period are not directly comparable, this earnings release focuses on results from operations during the third quarter 2013.
