Tesoro Corporation Reports Third Quarter Results

  • Net income of $2.39 per diluted share
  • Refinery utilization at 92%
  • Announced nearly 25% increase in retail stations
  • Reduced total debt to total capitalization to 28%
  • Reduced outstanding Tesoro share count by 4.7 million shares

SAN ANTONIO - November 2, 2011 - Tesoro Corporation (NYSE:TSO) today reported third quarter 2011 net income of $345 million, or $2.39 per diluted share compared to net income of $56 million, or $0.39 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2010.  

"We are pleased with the exceptional third quarter results. This marks the highest quarterly earnings since the second quarter of 2007, when the Tesoro Index was $24 per barrel (/bbl), more than $10/bbl higher than this quarter," said Greg Goff, President and CEO.

For the third quarter, the Company recorded segment operating income of $622 million, compared to segment operating income of $201 million in the third quarter of 2010, excluding one-time pre-tax expenses of $23 million associated with the Anacortes refinery outage. The year-over-year operating income improvement was driven by higher refinery utilization and capturing a significant crude cost advantage and improved margin environment.

For the third quarter, the Tesoro Index of $13.33/bbl gained more than $3/bbl from a year ago. Feedstock cost advantage, particularly in the mid-continent, drove the benchmark index higher during the quarter. West Coast benchmark diesel crack spreads were up over $1/bbl relative to last year, while gasoline crack spreads lost more than $6/bbl. U.S. exports of distillates and continued demand growth in Asia and Latin America provided support to distillate crack spreads during the quarter. High unemployment and a year-over-year increase in retail street prices, however, tempered gasoline demand. The Company captured a gross margin of $18.43/bbl.

The Company's strong margin performance relative to the Tesoro Index was driven by capturing an advantaged crude oil cost relative to benchmark grades of crude oil and delivering reliable refining operations. On the West Coast, discounts for foreign heavy crude oil relative to domestic alternatives widened year-over-year. In the mid-continent region, crude oil priced off of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) traded at a discount to Light Louisiana Sweet (LLS). Total throughput in the quarter was 609 thousand barrels per day (mbpd) or 92% of total crude oil capacity, the highest level in three years. The improvement from 578 mbpd or 87% of capacity in the second quarter of this year marks another sequential increase in refinery utilization rates. Sustaining higher utilization rates is a key priority for the Company.  

Direct manufacturing costs in the third quarter averaged $4.57/bbl, down $0.66/bbl relative to the second quarter of 2011, excluding the benefit of $5 million in property damage insurance proceeds.

"We continued to improve refinery utilization and delivered the lowest quarterly manufacturing cost per barrel in four years. We made progress on our high-return capital program and announced two additional refinery projects that leverage regional feedstock advantages and improve refinery yields. We also announced the addition of approximately 290 retail stations to our existing portfolio, strengthening our refining and marketing integration by about 12%," said Goff.  

Retail fuel sales volumes were up 16% year-over-year reflecting growth in the Company's branded jobber and dealer business. Same store fuel sales during the quarter were up nearly 1% on a year-over-year basis, a significant improvement relative to the second quarter of this year. Retail operating income was $22 million, down $10 million from a year ago driven by lower fuel margins.  

Corporate and unallocated costs, net of $3 million of corporate depreciation and excluding a $17 million non-cash stock-based compensation credit primarily associated with stock appreciation rights, were $39 million in the third quarter. This exceeds prior guidance due primarily to an incentive-based compensation accrual made during the quarter.    

Refining and Marketing Integration
On September 8, 2011, Tesoro announced that it will add approximately 290 retail stations to its existing portfolio of nearly 1,200 stations, an increase of about 25%, through separate purchase and lease agreements with SUPERVALU, Inc. (NYSE: SVU) and Thrifty Oil Co., respectively.

"The combined purchase and lease of these stations increases our refining and marketing integration from about 35% to about 47%, adding profitable and secure outlets for our refined products," said Goff.

Tesoro has agreed to acquire from SUPERVALU, Inc. 50 Albertson's Fuel Express stations for $34 million, and plans to invest an incremental $5 million in branding capital.  These stations are located in Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Idaho, Utah and Wyoming with total fuel sales of more than 5 mbpd.  Tesoro expects to complete the transaction early in 2012.

Separately, Tesoro has agreed to lease from Thrifty Oil Co. approximately 240 retail stations located primarily in southern California for an initial term of 10 years, and expects to invest $28 million in branding capital.  These stations have total fuel sales of 25 - 30 mbpd.  Tesoro will take possession of the stations in a phased process, with approximately 190 stations online in 2012 and the balance of approximately 50 stations in 2014.

The majority of both the purchased and leased stations will be marketed under Tesoro's existing brands.

Capital Spending and Liquidity
Capital spending for the third quarter was $86 million and turnaround spending was $17 million. The Company currently anticipates capital spending in 2011 to be approximately $320 million. Expectations for full year 2011 turnaround spending remain at $110 million. The Company ended the third quarter with $1.1 billion in cash on the balance sheet, up more than $500 million from the second quarter of this year, and remained undrawn with $1.0 billion of availability on the Tesoro Corporation revolving credit facility. Tesoro Panama and Tesoro Logistics LP ended the quarter with $20 million and $50 million borrowed, respectively, on their separate revolving credit facilities.    

Continued Debt Reduction
During the third quarter, Tesoro retired through open market purchases $84 million in senior notes and reduced total debt to total capitalization to 28%, down three percentage points from the second quarter of 2011. Year-to-date, the Company has reduced outstanding debt by $329 million, or 18%. The Company expects to continue to reduce total leverage, a key strategic priority, and intends to repurchase the remaining 6 1/4% senior notes due in 2012.  

Stock-Based Compensation Dilution Management Program
During the third quarter, the Company's Board of Directors approved a program designed to offset the dilutive effect of outstanding and future stock-based compensation awards. The Board authorized, and the Company subsequently executed, the purchase of 4.7 million shares of Tesoro stock to offset the dilutive effect of outstanding stock options and grants.  The Board also authorized a program to purchase additional shares in subsequent years to offset the dilutive effect of future stock-based compensation programs.

Analyst and Investor Presentation
The Company will be holding an Analyst and Investor Presentation at the New York Stock Exchange on December 5, 2011 at 2:30 p.m. ET.  Because space is limited, reservations will be required to attend and accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

___________________________
(e)  We define heavy crude oil as crude oil with an American Petroleum Institute gravity of 24 degrees or less.
(f)  Management uses gross refining margin per barrel to evaluate performance and compare profitability to other companies in the industry. There are a variety of ways to calculate gross refining margin per barrel; different companies may calculate it in different ways. We calculate gross refining margin per barrel by dividing gross refining margin (revenue less costs of feedstocks, purchased refined products, transportation and distribution) by total refining throughput. Management uses manufacturing costs per barrel to evaluate the efficiency of refining operations. There are a variety of ways to calculate manufacturing costs per barrel; different companies may calculate it in different ways. We calculate manufacturing costs per barrel by dividing manufacturing costs by total refining throughput. Investors and analysts use these financial measures to help analyze and compare companies in the industry on the basis of operating performance. These financial measures should not be considered alternatives to segment operating income, revenues, costs of sales and operating expenses or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP").
(g) Consolidated gross refining margin combines gross refining margin for each of our regions adjusted for other amounts not directly attributable to a specific region. Other amounts resulted in an increase of $1 million and $4 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011, respectively. Gross refining margin includes the effect of intersegment sales to the retail segment at prices which approximate market. Gross refining margin approximates total refining throughput times gross refining margin per barrel.
(h) Includes manufacturing depreciation and amortization expense per throughput barrel of approximately $1.55 and $2.01 for the three months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and $1.66 and $1.98 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.
(i)  Sources of total refined product sales include refined products manufactured at our refineries and refined products purchased from third parties. The total refined product sales margins include margins on sales of manufactured and purchased refined products.

(l)  We have reclassified fuel sales volumes associated with retail stations where Tesoro delivers the fuel, but the sites are owned and operated by independent dealers from "Company-operated" to "Branded jobber/dealer" to conform to the current presentation. The fuel sales volumes related to these stations were 80 million and 234 million gallons for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010, respectively.
(m) Management uses fuel margin per gallon to compare profitability to other companies in the industry. There are a variety of ways to calculate fuel margin per gallon; different companies may calculate it in different ways. We calculate fuel margin per gallon by dividing fuel gross margin by fuel sales volumes. Investors and analysts use fuel margin per gallon to help analyze and compare companies in the industry on the basis of operating performance. This financial measure should not be considered an alternative to segment operating income and revenues or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.   Fuel margin per gallon includes the effect of intersegment purchases from the refining segment at prices which approximate market.

(n) EBITDA represents earnings before interest and financing costs, interest income, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense. We present EBITDA because we believe some investors and analysts use EBITDA to help analyze our cash flows including our ability to satisfy principal and interest obligations with respect to our indebtedness and to use cash for other purposes, including capital expenditures. EBITDA is also used by some investors and analysts to analyze and compare companies on the basis of operating performance and by management for internal analysis and as a component of the fixed charge coverage financial covenant in our credit agreement. EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings, earnings before income taxes, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other entities.
(o) Costs at the Washington refinery during the three months ended September 30, 2010 include $12 million directly related to the April 2, 2010, incident and $11 million for maintenance work performed while the refinery was shut down. The after-tax impact of the total costs at the Washington refinery was $15 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010.
(p) Property insurance recoveries related to the April 2, 2010 incident at the Washington refinery of $5 million were collected during the three months ended June 30, 2011. The manufacturing cost per barrel impact of the property damage insurance recoveries is $0.10 ($/throughput bbl) for the three months ended June 30, 2011. This is calculated as property damage insurance recoveries divided by total refining throughput for the period.
(q) Represents the after-tax impact of a $4 million one-time charge related to the sublease of office space at our Corporate headquarters for the three months ended September 30, 2010.
