The company reported a second quarter 2017 net loss of $104.2 million, and a net loss attributable to PBF Energy Inc. of $109.7 million or $1.01 per share. This compares to net income of $120.6 million, and net income attributable to PBF Energy Inc. of $103.5 million or $1.06 per share for the second quarter 2016. Adjusted fully-converted net loss for the second quarter 2017, excluding special items, was $6.9 million, or $0.06 per share on a fully-exchanged, fully-diluted basis, as described below, compared to an adjusted fully-converted net income of $13.9 million, or $0.14 per share, for the second quarter 2016. PBF Energy's financial results reflect the consolidation of PBF Logistics LP (NYSE: PBFX), a master limited partnership of which PBF indirectly owns the general partner and approximately 44.1% of the limited partner interests as of quarter-end.

Tom Nimbley, PBF Energy's Chairman and CEO, said, 'Our main focus during the second quarter was to operate our assets safely and reliably and to complete the extensive turnarounds at our Torrance and Delaware City refineries. I am pleased to report that both turnarounds are complete and the refineries are operating well. When combined with the crude unit turnaround at Chalmette during the first quarter, we have successfully executed our major maintenance goals for 2017. Our second quarter results include the impact of this turnaround work and reflect the ongoing pressures of narrow crude differentials and headwinds from the flawed Renewable Fuels Standard.' Mr. Nimbley continued, 'Going into the second half of the year, we have five operating refineries, no significant turnaround activity and a refining environment supported by strong domestic and international demand. We are looking forward to the second half of 2017 and demonstrating the capabilities of our refining system.'

Non-GAAP Measures
