PBF Energy Reports First Quarter 2013 Results and Declares Dividend of $0.30 Per Share

PBF Energy Reports First Quarter 2013 Results and Declares Dividend of $0.30 Per Share

PARSIPPANY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PBF Energy Inc. (NYS: PBF) today reported first quarter 2013 operating income of $100.1 million versus an operating loss of $164.1 million for the first quarter of 2012. Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income for the first quarter 2013 was $46.7 million, or $0.48 per share on a fully exchanged, fully diluted basis, as described below, compared to a loss of $122.6 million, or $1.26 per share, for the first quarter 2012. Net income attributable to PBF Energy Inc. for the quarter was $11.4 million.

Adjusted Pro Forma results assume the exchange of all PBF Energy Company LLC Series A Units and dilutive securities into shares of PBF Energy Inc. Class A common stock on a one-for-one basis, resulting in the elimination of the noncontrolling interest and a corresponding adjustment to the company's tax provision.

Throughput for the quarter averaged approximately 441,600 barrels per day. Throughput in the Mid-continent averaged approximately 122,700 barrels per day and throughput on the East Coast averaged approximately 318,900 barrels per day. Throughput in the first quarter of 2013 was adversely impacted by the unplanned 18-day outage at the Toledo refinery.

For the first quarter 2013, the company's gross refining margin averaged $9.13 per barrel of throughput, with the Mid-continent contributing $19.50 per barrel and the East Coast contributing $5.14 per barrel. Operating expenses on a company-wide basis were $5.19 per barrel, with the Mid-continent being $5.97 per barrel and the East Coast being $4.89 per barrel.

Tom Nimbley, PBF Energy's CEO, said, "PBF faced some challenges during the quarter, including the outage at Toledo, narrowing crude oil differentials and increasing costs of compliance with the Renewable Fuels Standard. Despite these headwinds, we continue to believe in our strategy of sourcing the lowest cost feedstocks for our refineries and positioning PBF to benefit from positive market conditions."

The company's 70,000 barrel per day double-loop track at Delaware City continues to operate better than originally planned. The ongoing expansion project to double the company's heavy crude unloading capability to 80,000 barrels per day is expected to be completed during the fourth quarter of this year. Upon completion, PBF Energy will be able to deliver more than 150,000 barrels per day of crude-by-rail directly into the Delaware City refinery. During the first quarter 2013, the company ran approximately 55,000 barrels per day of cost-advantaged crudes though its East Coast system and expects to add to this throughput in the second quarter as it increases deliveries of crude by rail and experiences a full quarter of operations of the double-loop track.

Additionally, PBF Energy has entered into several agreements focused on advancing its crude-by-rail strategy. The company has signed long-term agreements with BNSF Railway and Norfolk Southern for the provision of rail services as PBF seeks to move increased volumes of North American crude across the rail system. PBF has also reached an agreement with Savage to transload Bakken crude oil at Savage's Trenton, NJ rail facility for delivery to PBF's East Coast refineries. Furthermore, PBF Energy has signed a new agreement with Trinity for the acquisition of 1,000 additional coiled and insulated railcars. This brings the total expected number of PBF's railcars to 5,900, including 4,600 coiled and insulated cars. The railcars are scheduled to be delivered over the next eight to ten quarters.

"We continue to invest in our organic rail infrastructure and enter into beneficial commercial arrangements in order to increase our ability to access cost-advantaged North American crude oils," continued Mr. Nimbley. "With our recently announced supply agreement for Bakken crude oil with Continental Resources and our arrangements with the rail companies, PBF has effectively established a rail pipeline for crude direct from the producers to our refineries on the East Coast. We believe that by providing our refineries with the most economic crude slates, we will maximize the earnings potential of our assets."

PBF Energy Inc. Declares Dividend

The company announced today that it will pay a quarterly dividend of $0.30 per share of Class A common stock on June 7, 2013 to holders of record as of May 21, 2013.

"PBF's Board of Directors approval of a $0.30 dividend for the quarter represents continuing confidence in the earnings power of the company and also PBF's commitment to returning value to stockholders," concluded Mr. Nimbley.
