Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
     On March 17, 2011, Delek US Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “SPA”) with Ergon, Inc., a Mississippi corporation (“Ergon”), and Lion Oil Company, an Arkansas corporation (“Lion Oil”), providing for the Company’s acquisition of the 53.7 percent equity interest in Lion Oil currently owned by Ergon. Upon the closing of the acquisition, the Company will own an 88.3 percent equity interest in Lion Oil.
     The Company has agreed to acquire Ergon’s equity interest in Lion Oil for a combination of cash, stock and the payment or replacement of all debt currently owed by Lion Oil to Ergon, including the following: (a) the Company will issue restricted shares of its common stock to Ergon, valued at approximately $45 million (the number of shares to be determined by the average closing price of the Company’ common stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange for the ten consecutive trading days immediately preceding the closing date, with an option, under certain circumstances, to substitute cash in lieu of restricted common stock); (b) Lion Oil and/or the Company will make cash payments in the aggregate amount of $50 million to Ergon; (c) Lion Oil will execute a new $50 million term note payable to Ergon that will be guaranteed by the Company; (d) Lion Oil will transfer its interests in a pipeline subsidiary to Ergon; and (e) the Company will pay or cause to be paid to Ergon an amount equal to the adjusted net working capital of Lion Oil and certain subsidiaries. In addition, Lion Oil will divest specified non-refining assets to or for the benefit of Ergon.
     The closing of the transactions contemplated by the SPA is subject to certain conditions, including the receipt of required antitrust approvals (or termination or expiration of applicable waiting periods), the receipt of other governmental approvals under the Defense Production Act, the delivery of several ancillary agreements and other customary closing conditions.
     The SPA may be terminated under several circumstances, including by mutual agreement, or by us or Ergon if the transaction has not closed or the closing conditions to be satisfied by the other party are incapable of being satisfied on or before April 29, 2011. In addition, we have the right to terminate the SPA in our discretion, and would forfeit a $5 million deposit if we elect to do so.
     A copy of the press release announcing the execution of the SPA is attached as Exhibit 99.1
     Material Relationships
     In 2007, the Company acquired a 34.6 percent equity interest in Lion Oil from several former Lion Oil shareholders. Since 2007, two of the Company’s executive officers, Fred Green and Assi Ginzburg, have served on Lion Oil’s Board of Directors. Lion Oil owns and operates an 80,000 barrel per day, crude oil refinery in El Dorado, Arkansas, three crude oil pipelines, a crude oil gathering system and two refined petroleum product terminals in Memphis and Nashville, Tennessee. The two terminals supply products to some of the Company’s 180 convenience stores in the Memphis and Nashville markets. These product purchases totaled $15.4 million, $9.8 million and $11.7 million in 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. The Company’s refining segment also made sales of $1.5 million, $2.5 million and $1.9 million, respectively, of intermediate products to the Lion Oil refinery during 2010, 2009 and 2008. These product purchases and sales were made at market values.
