NuStar Energy sells 50 percent of asphalt operations, including Savannah plant

 

NuStar Energy L.P. (NYSE: NS) announced Friday it has sold a 50 percent interest in its asphalt operations to Lindsay Goldberg LLC, a private investment firm, and will create a joint venture that will own and operate its asphalt refineries.

 

The deal includes Savannah Asphalt Refinery, 7 Foundation Drive, which has 46 employees. The Savannah plant and one in Paulsboro, N.J., have a combined refining capacity of 104,000 barrels a day.

 

Lindsay Goldberg is paying $175 million for its interest, with closing for the transaction expected no later than Sept. 30.

 

Cash proceeds received by NuStar, including the payment from Lindsay Goldberg, should be in the $400 million to $500 million range depending on the joint venture’s working capital requirements. The joint venture will pay NuStar for inventories transferred at closing, and the payment will be financed by a credit facility being arranged for the joint venture.

 

The board of managers of the joint venture will be chaired by NuStar board chairman Bill Greehey. Michael Pesch, vice president regional operations for NuStar, will be the chief executive officer of the joint venture.

 

“This joint venture transaction allows NuStar to monetize a portion of its asphalt operations and still maintain a 50 percent interest in a business that has the potential to generate significant cash flows as the U.S. economy improves,” said Curt Anastasio, president and CEO of NuStar. “We expect to use the cash proceeds received from this transaction to pay down a large portion of our debt, which should significantly improve NuStar’s leverage metrics.”
