Delek Logistics Partners, LP Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

Declared quarterly distribution of $0.655 per limited partner unit; increased by 14.9 percent year-over-year

Reported third quarter net cash from operating activities of $29.2 million and distributable cash flow of $19.1 million

Delek Logistics Partners, LP (DKL) ("Delek Logistics") today announced its financial results for the third quarter 2016. For the three months ended September 30, 2016, Delek Logistics reported net income attributable to all partners of $13.2 million, or $0.41 per diluted common limited partner unit. This compares to net income attributable to all partners of $18.6 million, or $0.70 per diluted common limited partner unit, in the third quarter 2015. Distributable cash flow ("DCF") was $19.1 million in the third quarter 2016, compared to $22.6 million in the prior-year period. Based on the declared distribution for the third quarter 2016, the distributable cash flow coverage ratio was 0.99x for the third quarter and 1.16x on a year-to-date basis through September 2016.

Uzi Yemin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Delek Logistics’ general partner, remarked: "During the third quarter, our focus on cost savings initiatives played a role in the year-over-year decline in operating and general and administrative expenses and partially offset lower operating performance in the Pipelines and Transportation segment. The hydro test of the Paline Pipeline required every five years was successfully completed in August, but its $1.0 million cost did contribute to a lower DCF during the quarter. We have a FERC tariff in place for Paline and have been actively marketing the excess capacity, which has led to increased shipper interest from Delek and third parties for the available space. We maintained financial flexibility, ending the quarter with approximately $319 million of capacity on our credit facility and a leverage ratio of 3.70 times. This financial position supported the 14.9 percent year-over-year increase in our declared third quarter distribution."

Yemin concluded, "During the third quarter, the RIO pipeline joint venture project in west Texas began operating in September with shipments under the T&D contract beginning in October and the joint venture continues to look at opportunities for additional growth. Our second joint venture project, the Caddo pipeline, is expected to be completed in January 2017. We expect the combination of these projects to provide additional growth in 2017. We remain focused on creating long term value for our unit holders as we continue to evaluate potential third party acquisition opportunities and explore options to partner with Delek US in the future. We believe that our balance sheet provides the flexibility to support these initiatives, as well as achieve our targeted growth in our distribution per limited partner unit of 15% in 2016."

Distribution and Liquidity On October 25, 2016, Delek Logistics declared a quarterly cash distribution for the third quarter of $0.655 per limited partner unit, which equates to $2.62 per limited partner unit on an annualized basis. This distribution is payable on November 14, 2016 to unitholders of record on November 7, 2016. This represents a 4.0 percent increase from the second quarter 2016 distribution of $0.63 per limited partner unit, or $2.52 per limited partner unit on an annualized basis, and a 14.9 percent increase over Delek Logistics’ third quarter 2015 distribution of $0.57 per limited partner unit, or $2.28 per limited partner unit annualized. For the third quarter 2016, the total cash distribution declared to all partners, including IDRs, was $19.3 million.

As of September 30, 2016, Delek Logistics had total debt of approximately $375.0 million. Additional borrowing capacity, subject to certain covenants, under the $700.0 million credit facility was approximately $318.5 million.

Financial Results Revenue for the third quarter 2016 was $107.5 million compared to $165.1 million in the prior year period. The change in revenue is primarily due to lower prices and volume in the west Texas wholesale business. Total operating expenses were $9.3 million compared to $11.6 million in the third quarter 2015. This reduction in operating expenses was primarily due to lower maintenance costs on a year-over-year basis, partly as a result of a higher level of maintenance projects that were completed in the prior year period. Total segment contribution margin decreased to $24.7 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $29.1 million in the third quarter 2015 primarily due to lower performance in the Pipeline and Transportation segment. General and administrative expenses decreased to $2.3 million for the third quarter 2016 compared to $2.7 million in the prior-year period, which was primarily due to lower outside services and employee related expenses. For the third quarter 2016, EBITDA was $22.0 million compared to $26.1 million in the prior-year period.

Pipelines and Transportation Segment The contribution margin in the third quarter 2016 was $16.1 million compared to $20.4 million in the third quarter 2015. This change was primarily due to reduced performance in the Paline Pipeline as a result of a reduction in both the amount of capacity that is leased and the lease fee on a year-over-year basis. Also, lower volume on the SALA gathering system on a year-over-year basis was a factor in the change in contribution margin. This was partially offset by a decline in operating expenses to $7.7 million in the third quarter 2016, which included expenses for the Paline Pipeline hydro test, compared to $8.4 million in the prior year period.

During the third quarter 2016, approximately $1.0 million was spent during the hydro test on the Paline Pipeline. This test is required every five years by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration. Of this amount, approximately $0.5 million was included in operating expenses for the hydro test and $0.5 million was included in capital expenditures for planned work that was completed while the pipeline was not operating during this period.

Wholesale Marketing and Terminalling Segment During the third quarter 2016 contribution margin was $8.6 million, compared to $8.7 million in the third quarter 2015. Lower performance in the west Texas wholesale operations and under the east Texas marketing agreement was offset by lower operating expenses on a year-over-year basis. Operating expenses were $1.6 million in the third quarter 2016, compared to $3.2 million in the third quarter of 2015.

In the west Texas wholesale business, average throughput in the third quarter 2016 was 12,162 barrels per day compared to 18,824 barrels per day in the third quarter 2015. The wholesale gross margin in west Texas decreased year-over-year to $1.16 per barrel and included approximately $1.8 million, or $1.57 per barrel from renewable identification numbers (RINs) generated in the quarter. During the third quarter 2015, the wholesale gross margin was $1.50 per barrel and included $1.0 million from RINs, or $0.57 per barrel.

Average terminalling throughput volume of 120,099 barrels per day during the quarter decreased on a year-over-year basis from 126,051 barrels per day in the third quarter 2015 primarily due to lower throughput at the Tyler and Big Sandy, Texas terminals, partially offset by higher volumes at the El Dorado, Arkansas terminal. During the third quarter 2016, average volume under the east Texas marketing agreement with Delek US was 67,812 barrels per day compared to 75,313 barrels per day during the third quarter 2015.

Project Development Update In March 2015, Delek Logistics, through wholly owned subsidiaries, entered into two joint ventures (Caddo Pipeline and RIO Pipeline). Delek Logistics’ total projected investment for the two joint ventures to build the pipelines, which is subject to change pending any revisions in construction schedules and remaining costs in the Caddo project, is expected to be approximately $101.0 million and is being financed through a combination of cash from operations and borrowings under its revolving credit facility. Through September 30, 2016, approximately $95.8 million has been invested in these projects. The RIO Pipeline began operating in September and construction on the Caddo Pipeline is expected to be completed in January 2017.

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 Holdings, thereby subjecting us to Delek US Holdings’ 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 affects 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; 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. 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.

Factors Affecting Comparability: On March 31, 2015, Delek Logistics acquired the Tyler crude oil storage tank and the El Dorado rail offloading facility (the "Logistics Assets") from Delek US. These assets were accounted for as transfers between entities under common control. Accordingly, the accompanying financial statements of the Partnership have been retrospectively adjusted to include the historical results of these assets in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For the period ended March 31, 2015, the acquisition date of the Logistics Assets, the retrospective adjustments were made to the financial statements. The historical results of the Logistics Assets, prior to the acquisition date, are referred to as the "Logistics Assets Predecessor."

Non-GAAP Disclosures: EBITDA and distributable cash flow are non-U.S. GAAP supplemental financial measures that management and external users of our combined 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 distribution coverage ratio provide useful information to investors in assessing its financial condition, its results of operations and cash flow its business is generating. EBITDA, distributable cash flow and distribution 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. EBITDA, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio 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. 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. Please see the tables below for a reconciliation of EBITDA, and distributable cash flow to their most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Also, please see the accompanying table providing the calculation of distribution coverage ratio.

We also include the results of our operations excluding the results of our Logistics Assets Predecessor. We believe that the presentation of our results of operations excluding results of our Logistics Assets Predecessor will provide useful information to investors in assessing our results of operations by allowing them to analyze operations of our business under our current commercial agreements with Delek US.
