Alon USA Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2010 Results
Company schedules conference call for March 11, 2011, at 10:00 A.M. Eastern
     DALLAS, TEXAS, March 10, 2011 — Alon USA Energy, Inc. (NYSE: ALJ) (“Alon”) today announced results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2010. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2010 was ($25.1) million, or ($0.46) per share, compared to net loss of ($90.6) million, or ($1.93) per share, for the same period in the prior year. Excluding special items, Alon recorded net loss of ($20.2) million, or ($0.37) per share, for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to net loss of ($65.4) million, or ($1.39) per share, for the same period in the prior year.
     Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2010, was ($122.9) million, or ($2.27) per share, compared to net loss of ($115.2) million, or ($2.46) per share, for the year ended December 31, 2009. Excluding special items, Alon recorded net loss of ($130.6) million, or ($2.41) per share, for the year ended December 31, 2010, compared to net loss of ($82.7) million, or ($1.77) per share, for the same period in the prior year.
     Jeff Morris, Alon’s CEO, commented, “We are seeing positive results in our operations of the Big Spring and Krotz Springs refineries. During the fourth quarter, the throughput at Big Spring and Krotz Springs refineries was up 8% and 9%, respectively, compared to the third quarter of 2010. In December 2010, both refineries reached their highest average daily throughputs of 2010 with Big Spring near 61,000 barrels per day and Krotz Springs near 75,000 barrels per day. At our California refineries, we are focusing our efforts on the integration of the Bakersfield hydrocracker unit to process vacuum gas oil produced at our California refineries. As a result, we shut down the California refineries in December to expedite the integration efforts. We continue to make good progress and anticipate restarting our California refineries in March with production from the Bakersfield hydrocracker unit to start by mid-year 2011. We intend to increase the throughput of the integrated California refineries back to 2007 levels of approximately 55,000 to 60,000 barrels per day. Also, we expect substantial improvement in the operating margin primarily due to the operation of the hydrocracker unit and further improvement in the West Coast crack spreads the industry is experiencing in 2011.
     “At Krotz Springs, we continue to undertake initiatives to receive crudes such as WTI at our Krotz Springs refinery. This new crude flexibility will enable us to reduce our crude costs during the price spikes of LLS Louisiana crude.
