Lubricants Distributor Serving Oilfield Clients in
Texas and Oklahoma
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Susser Holdings Corporation (NYSE: SUSS) and
Susser Petroleum Partners LP (NYSE: SUSP) today announced that SUSS has completed the acquisition of
Gainesville Fuels Inc., which operates a wholesale fuel and lubricants distribution business selling
approximately 60 million gallons of diesel annually to oil and gas producers in northern Texas and southern
Oklahoma. SUSS will contribute the acquired company to SUSP.
"We would like to extend a warm welcome to the employees and customers of Gainesville Fuel. The
Gainesville acquisition gives us access to new geographic wholesale markets in North Texas and Southern
Oklahoma," said Sam L. Susser , president and chief executive officer of Susser Holdings.
"By combining the Gainesville business with our existing commercial fuels business serving customers in the
Permian basin, we expect to realize operating and procurement synergies. We also have the opportunity to
expand sales to existing customers in these new service areas," Susser said.
Management expects that the contribution of the company to SUSP will occur within the next few days. In
connection with this value-for-value exchange, SUSP will assume Gainesville's existing indebtedness and
certain other liabilities, and will issue $2.0 million in SUSP common units to SUSS. SUSS expects to
immediately record a one-time non-CASH deferred tax charge of approximately $3.6 million arising from the
contribution of goodwill from a taxable entity (SUSS) to a non-taxable entity (SUSP) in connection with this
Beginning in 2014, the acquisition is expected to generate annual incremental distributable cash flow for SUSP
of $0.05 to $0.10 per common unit, and approximately $0.03 to $0.07 of incremental earnings per common
share for SUSS, excluding any synergies.
