Global Partners LP Completes Acquisition of 25 Liquid Energy Terminals from Motiva Enterprises LLC

Purchased for $305.8 million and supported by a 25-year guaranteed take-or-pay throughput agreement, the assets access a critical pipeline and marine network and significantly increase Global’s operating footprint

Global Partners LP (NYSE: GLP) (“Global” or the “Partnership”) today announced the completion of its previously announced acquisition of 25 liquid energy terminals from Motiva Enterprises LLC (“Motiva”). The transaction is underpinned by a 25-year take-or-pay throughput agreement with Motiva, the anchor tenant at the terminals, that includes minimum annual revenue commitments.

“This acquisition nearly doubles our operating footprint, giving Global a significant position from Maine to Florida and into the Gulf Coast,” said Eric Slifka, the Partnership’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “The addition of these terminals supports the growth of our integrated supply, storage and retail network in rapidly growing areas of the country—Florida, Georgia, Texas and the Carolinas—providing customers with gasoline, diesel and other liquid fuels essential to their daily lives.”

With the newly acquired locations, Global now owns or leases 49 liquid energy terminals in the United States, totaling approximately 18.3 million barrels in shell capacity. The new assets expand access to a critical network of marine loading facilities as well as the Colonial, Plantation, Enterprise, Explorer and Magellan refined product pipelines.

Slifka continued, “This purchase marks a significant milestone in Global’s 90-year history and highlights our strategy to acquire and invest in assets where we can leverage our core strengths. We look forward to broadening our network for existing customers and serving new customers with our high level personal service and reliability.”

The terminals, purchased for $305.8 million in cash, represent an expected EBITDA multiple below 7.0x in the second year of ownership.

Forward-looking Statements

Certain statements and information in this press release may constitute “forward-looking statements.” The words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “intend,” “foresee,” “should,” “would,” “could” or other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, which are generally not historical in nature, although not all forward-looking statements contain such identifying words. These forward-looking statements are based on Global’s current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effect on the Partnership. While management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable as and when made, there can be no assurance that future developments affecting the Partnership will be those that it anticipates. Forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties (some of which are beyond the Partnership’s control) including, without limitation, uncertainty around the timing of an economic recovery in the United States which will impact the demand for the products we sell and the services that we provide, and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from the Partnership’s historical experience and present expectations or projections. We believe these assumptions are reasonable given currently available information. Our assumptions and future performance are subject to a wide range of business risks, uncertainties and factors, which are described in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
