Alon USA Partners, LP Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results and Declares Quarterly Cash Distribution

Schedules conference call for July 29, 2016 at 9:30 a.m. Eastern
DALLAS, TEXAS, July 28, 2016 - Alon USA Partners, LP (NYSE: ALDW) (“Alon Partners”) today announced results for the second quarter of 2016. Net income for the second quarter of 2016 was $1.2 million, or $0.02 per unit, compared to $59.4 million, or $0.95 per unit, for the same period last year. Net loss for the first half of 2016 was $(7.4) million, or $(0.12) per unit, compared to net income of $95.9 million, or $1.53 per unit, for the same period last year.
The Board of Directors of Alon USA Partners GP, LLC, the general partner of Alon Partners, declared a cash distribution for the second quarter of 2016 of $0.14 per unit payable on August 25, 2016 to common unitholders of record at the close of business on August 18, 2016, based on cash available for distribution of $8.8 million.
Paul Eisman, President and CEO, commented, “The refining environment in the second quarter of 2016 remained challenging as crack spreads were pressured by high product inventories. While crack spreads improved seasonally from the first quarter of 2016, the average benchmark crack spread in the second quarter was down approximately $6.50 per barrel relative to the same quarter last year. As previously discussed, our second quarter results were also negatively impacted by unplanned downtime related to a power outage in late May. We estimate the lost opportunity cost and maintenance cost associated with the power outage negatively impacted Alon Partners’ adjusted EBITDA by approximately $10 million or the distribution by $0.16 per unit.
“Big Spring’s refinery operating margin of $8.53 per barrel was negatively impacted by approximately $1.30 per barrel due to the unplanned downtime during the quarter. Despite the interruption to normal operations, the refinery achieved low operating costs of $3.59 per barrel. We currently expect to perform maintenance on the Big Spring refinery’s reformer in August. As a result, we expect total throughput at the Big Spring refinery to average approximately 69,000 barrels per day for the third quarter and 70,000 barrels per day for the full year of 2016. Based on current forward curve crack spreads, it is our expectation that with operations consistent with our plan we should generate sufficient cash available for distribution during the third quarter of 2016.”
SECOND QUARTER 2016
Refinery operating margin was $8.53 per barrel for the second quarter of 2016 compared to $17.22 per barrel for the same period in 2015. This decrease in operating margin was primarily due to a lower Gulf Coast 3/2/1 crack spread, a narrowing of the WTI Cushing to WTI Midland spread and a reduced cost of crude benefit from the contango market in 2016, partially offset by a widening of the WTI Cushing to WTS spread. The Big Spring refinery average throughput for the second quarter of 2016 was 71,153 barrels per day (“bpd”) compared to 75,491 bpd for the same period in 2015. The Big Spring refinery’s throughput and operating margin were negatively affected by the unplanned downtime during the second quarter of 2016 due to a power outage caused by inclement weather, which affected multiple units.
