BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Aug. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Delek Logistics Partners, LP (NYSE: DKL) ("Delek Logistics") today announced its financial results for the second quarter 2019. For the three months ended June 30, 2019, Delek Logistics reported net income attributable to all partners of $24.9 million, or $0.69 per diluted common limited partner unit. This compares to net income attributable to all partners of $25.6 million, or $0.79 per diluted common limited partner unit, in the second quarter 2018. Net cash from operating activities was $24.1 million in the second quarter 2019 compared to $28.0 million in the prior year period. Distributable cash flow was $31.2 million in the second quarter 2019, compared to $33.5 million in the prior-year period. Reconciliation of cash from operating activities as reported under U.S. GAAP to distributable cash flow is included in the financial tables attached to this release.
For the second quarter 2019, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") was $44.8 million compared to $45.4 million in the prior-year period. On a year over year basis, improved performance, primarily from the Paline Pipeline and contribution from the Red River pipeline joint venture acquisition, was offset by a lower west Texas gross margin combined with lower throughputs, primarily at assets supporting Delek US Holdings, Inc.'s (NYSE: DK)("Delek US") El Dorado, Arkansas refinery. Lower throughputs at El Dorado reduced gross margin by approximately $0.8 million. Reconciliation of net income attributable to all partners as reported under U.S. GAAP to EBITDA is included in the financial tables attached to this release.
Uzi Yemin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Delek Logistics' general partner, remarked: "During the second quarter we completed a great transaction through the Red River pipeline joint venture acquisition. This investment contributed to second quarter results and we expect this benefit to increase following the pipeline expansion that should be completed in the first half of 2020. The cash flow generated by Red River should support our coverage and provide flexibility as we continue to explore organic growth opportunities. We were able to utilize availability on our credit facility to finance this transaction. Our strategy is now focused on future organic growth opportunities that should support cash flow coverage and reducing leverage to better position the balance sheet. Simultaneously, our sponsor, Delek US, continues building its midstream portfolio, providing potential longer-term options for Delek Logistics. We were pleased to announce a 10.4% year-over-year increase in our second quarter distribution, and we remain committed to grow our distribution per limited partner unit by at least 10% annually through 2019."
Red River Pipeline Joint Venture
As announced on May 28, 2019, Delek Logistics purchased a 33 percent ownership interest in the Red River pipeline joint venture from Plains Pipeline, L.P. for approximately $128.0 million, which includes an initial payment of $3.5 million for the expansion of the pipeline. This transaction closed effective May 1, 2019 and was financed by borrowings on the Delek Logistics revolving credit facility. The Red River crude oil pipeline is a 16-inch pipeline running from Cushing, Oklahoma to Longview, Texas with a current capacity of 150,000 barrels per day. Currently, the joint venture has access to 60 percent of the capacity from Cushing to Hewitt, Oklahoma and 100 percent of the capacity from Hewitt to Longview. An approximate $51.0 million expansion project to increase the pipeline capacity to 235,000 barrels per day is expected to be completed during the first half of 2020. Delek Logistics will contribute approximately $20.0 million to the joint venture for this expansion. Upon completion of the expansion project, the joint venture will have access to approximately 69 percent of the capacity from Cushing to Hewitt and 100 percent of the capacity from Hewitt to Longview. Delek Logistics' portion of this joint venture is expected to generate approximately $13.5 to $15.5 million of annualized adjusted EBITDA in its first year, and is expected to increase to approximately $20.0 to $25.0 million of annualized adjusted EBITDA following the pipeline expansion in the first half of 2020.
During the second quarter 2019, the Red River joint venture generated $2.3 million of equity income and $0.7 million of cash distributions.
Distribution and Liquidity
On July 24, 2019, Delek Logistics declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.85 per common limited partner unit for the second quarter, which equates to $3.40 per common limited partner unit on an annualized basis. This distribution is to be paid on August 13, 2019 to unitholders of record on August 5, 2019. This represents a 3.7 percent increase from the first quarter 2019 distribution of $0.82 per common limited partner unit, or $3.28 per common limited partner unit on an annualized basis, and a 10.4% increase over Delek Logistics’ second quarter 2018 distribution of $0.77 per common limited partner unit, or $3.08 per common limited partner unit annualized. For the second quarter 2019, the total cash distribution declared to all partners, including incentive distribution rights (IDRs), was approximately $28.9 million. Based on the distribution for the second quarter 2019, the distributable cash flow coverage ratio for the second quarter was 1.08x.
As of June 30, 2019, Delek Logistics had total debt of approximately $840.9 million and cash of $5.4 million. Additional borrowing capacity, subject to certain covenants, under the $850.0 million credit facility was $253.3 million. The total leverage ratio, calculated in accordance with the credit facility, for the second quarter 2019 was approximately 4.6x, which is within the current requirements of the maximum allowable leverage ratio of 5.25x.
Revenue for the second quarter 2019 was $155.3 million compared to $166.3 million in the prior-year period. The decrease in revenue is primarily due to lower prices and volumes in the west Texas wholesale business, partially offset by improved performance from the Paline Pipeline. Total operating expenses were $17.3 million in the second quarter 2019, compared to $14.9 million in the second quarter 2018. The increase was primarily due to higher outside services and employee expenses. Total contribution margin was $44.2 million in the second quarter 2019 compared to $45.3 million in the second quarter 2018. General and administrative expenses were $5.3 million for the second quarter 2019, compared to $3.7 million in the prior-year period, partially due to employee expenses.
Pipelines and Transportation Segment
Contribution margin in the second quarter 2019 was $24.1 million compared to $22.6 million in the second quarter 2018. This improvement was primarily due to improved performance from the Paline Pipeline, partially offset by lower performance on the Lion Oil Pipeline system due to lower throughput at Delek US' El Dorado, Arkansas refinery. Operating expenses were $12.7 million in the second quarter 2019 compared to $9.9 million in the prior-year period, primarily related to employee expenses.
Wholesale Marketing and Terminalling Segment
During the second quarter 2019, contribution margin was $20.0 million, compared to $22.7 million in the second quarter 2018. This decrease was primarily due to a lower gross margin in west Texas. Operating expenses decreased to $4.6 million in the second quarter 2019, compared to $5.0 million in the prior-year period.
In the west Texas wholesale business, average throughput in the second quarter 2019 was 11,404 barrels per day compared to 12,261 barrels per day in the second quarter 2018. The west Texas gross margin per barrel decreased year-over-year to $6.25 per barrel and included approximately $0.3 million, or $0.25 per barrel, from renewable identification numbers (RINs) generated in the quarter. During the second quarter 2018, the west Texas gross margin per barrel was $8.06 per barrel and included $0.8 million from RINs, or $0.71 per barrel.
Average terminalling throughput volume of 156,922 barrels per day during the second quarter 2019 decreased on a year-over-year basis from 162,383 barrels per day in the second quarter 2018. During the second quarter 2019, average volume under the East Texas marketing agreement with Delek US was 71,123 barrels per day compared to 79,330 barrels per day during the second quarter 2018.

Safe Harbor Provisions Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based upon current expectations and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Statements concerning current estimates, expectations and projections about future results, performance, prospects, opportunities, plans, actions and events and other statements, concerns, or matters that are not historical facts are “forward-looking statements,” as that term is defined under 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 grow as expected as it relates to our potential future growth opportunities, including dropdowns, and other potential benefits; the results of our investments in joint ventures; the ability of the Red River joint venture to complete the expansion to increase the Red River pipeline capacity; 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; distributions and the amounts and timing thereof; potential dropdown inventory, expected earnings or returns from joint ventures or other acquisitions; ability to create long-term value for our unit holders; financial flexibility and borrowing capacity; and distribution growth of 10% or at all. Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results and will not be accurate indications of the times at, or by, which such performance or results will be achieved. Forward-looking information is based on information available at the time and/or management's good faith belief with respect to future events, and is subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in the statements. Delek Logistics undertakes no obligation to update or revise any such forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that occur, or which Delek Logistics becomes aware of, after the date hereof, except as required by applicable law or regulation
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 before net interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, including 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 is an 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 our 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 flow from operating activities 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, thereby diminishing their utility. See the accompanying tables in this earnings release for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

Operating expenses and depreciation and amortization related to the wholesale business are excluded from cost of sales because they primarily relate to costs associated with selling the products.
