Tom Nimbley, PBF Energy's CEO, said, 'Our refineries ran better than last quarter, generating positive results as the East Coast returned to profitability. Our margins were negatively impacted by several factors, including narrower light/heavy crude differentials and a 35% increase in the flat price of crude versus the first quarter. These factors contributed to lower realized margins due to increased input costs and higher relative losses on our low-value products across our system. In addition, rising RIN expenses and persistent above-average inventory levels weighed on product margins.'

Mr. Nimbley continued, 'Looking forward, seasonal demand remains strong but inventory levels could continue to pressure refining margins in the third quarter. The crude market continues to be well-supplied and feedstock differentials are showing signs of improvement.' Mr. Nimbley concluded, 'Despite the recent market volatility, we are excited about the increased diversification of our system with the addition of Torrance. We have grown our business significantly over the past twelve months and increased the earnings potential of our company.'

Previously announced Torrance Refinery acquisition
On July 1, 2016, PBF announced that its subsidiary had closed its previously announced acquisition of the 155,000 barrel per day Torrance refinery, and related logistics assets, from ExxonMobil. The purchase price for the assets was $537.5 million, plus initial working capital of approximately $460.9 million which is subject to final valuation within ninety days of closing. The estimated working capital expenditures include existing feedstock, intermediate and finished product inventories as well as certain environmental credits. The Company expects the net working capital related to the Torrance Acquisition to ultimately be less than the working capital acquisition price as the pre-paid inventory and credits are cycled through its normal operations in the coming months.

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 August 23, 2016, to holders of record as of August 9, 2016.
