PARSIPPANY, N.J., April 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PBF Logistics LP (NYSE: PBFX) (the "Partnership") announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary has acquired the Toledo, Ohio, refined products terminal assets of Sunoco Logistics LP ("Sunoco Logistics") for $10.0 million in cash. The Toledo Terminal is directly connected to and currently supplied by PBF Energy Inc.'s (NYSE: PBF) Toledo refinery.
PBF Logistics GP LLC Chief Executive Officer Tom Nimbley said, "We are pleased with our acquisition of the Toledo Terminal which is PBFX's second third-party acquisition and third transaction completed this year. The combined transactions represent a $15 million increase to the Partnership's forecasted annualized EBITDA. We welcome the employees of the terminal to the PBFX family and look forward to maximizing the potential of our newest asset."
Located adjacent to PBF Energy's Toledo refinery, the Toledo Terminal is comprised of a 10-bay truck rack and over 110,000 barrels of chemicals, clean product and additive storage capacity.
PBF Logistics LP Reconciliation of amounts under US GAAP to Forecasted EBITDA (unaudited, in millions)
Reconciliation of combined Toledo Terminal and previously announced organic projects estimated annualized net income to forecasted EBITDA:
Estimated net income
Add: Depreciation and amortization expense
Add: Interest expense, net and other financing costs
The Partnership defines EBITDA as net income (loss) before net interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense. EBITDA is a non-GAAP supplemental financial measure that management and external users of our consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, may use to assess:
- our operating performance as compared to other publicly traded partnerships in the midstream energy industry, without regard to historical cost basis or financing methods;
- the ability of our assets to generate sufficient cash flow to make distributions to our unit holders;
- our 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.
The Partnership's management believes that the presentation of EBITDA provides useful information to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations. EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income, operating income, cash from operations or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool because it excludes some but not all items that affect net income. Additionally, because EBITDA may be defined differently by other companies in our industry, our definition of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing its utility. Due to the forward-looking nature of forecasted EBITDA, information to reconcile forecasted EBITDA to forecasted cash flow from operating activities is not available as management is unable to project working capital changes for future periods at this time.
