Glossary

The rating ispositive.  These kind of parent/spinoffs generally work, because there is a segment of VLO’s shareholders who will be enticed by a 4.25% yield versus 1.98% from the parent company,VLO.

Business

VLP is a fee-based, growth-oriented, traditional master limited partnership recently formed by Valero -- $25 billion market cap (VLO) -- to own, operate, develop and acquire crude oil and refined petroleum products pipelines, terminals and other transportation and logistics assets. VLP will serve as Valero’s primary vehicle to expand the transportation and logistics assets supporting its business.

VLP’s initial assets consist of crude oil and refined petroleum products pipeline and terminal systems in the Gulf Coast and Mid-Continent regions of the United States (“U.S.”) that are integral to the operations of Valero’s refinery located in Port Arthur, Texas, its McKee refinery located in Sunray, Texas, and its refinery located in Memphis, Tennessee.

VLP generates revenue by charging tariffs and fees for transporting crude oil and refined petroleum products through its pipelines and terminals. Because VLP does not take ownership of or receive any payments based on the value of the crude oil or refined petroleum products that it handles and does not engage in the trading of any commodities, VLP has no direct exposure to commodity price fluctuations.

At the closing of this offering, VLP will enter into a master transportation services agreement with Valero with respect to VLP’s pipelines and a master terminal services agreement with Valero with respect to VLP’s terminals. These fee-based commercial agreements will initially be the source of all of VLP’s revenues and will have minimum quarterly throughput commitments, inflation escalators and initial terms of 10 years, which VLP believes will promote stable and predictable cash flows.

Competition

As a result of VLP’s contractual relationship with Valero under its commercial agreements and its direct connections to three of Valero’s refineries, VLP believes that its crude oil and refined petroleum product pipelines, terminals and storage facilities will not face significant competition from other pipelines, terminals and storage facilities for Valero’s crude oil or refined petroleum products transportation requirements to and from the refineries VLP supports.

Dividends

VLP intends to pay minimum quarterly distributions of $0.2125 per unit ($0.85 per unit on an annualized basis) to the extent it has sufficient cash from operations after establishment of cash reserves and payment of fees and expenses, including payments to VLP’s general partner..

5% stockholders

Valero (VLO) is the parent.

Use of proceeds

VLP expects to net $277.9 million from its IPO. Proceeds are allocated as follows:

to pay revolving credit facility issuance costs of $1.7 million, and VLP will retain the remainder of the net proceeds of this offering for general partnership purposes, which may include funding potential future acquisitions from Valero and third parties and potential future organic expansion capital expenditures.
