SAN  ANTONIO - February  6, 2013 - Tesoro Corporation  (NYSE:TSO) today reported
fourth  quarter  2012 net  income  of  $27  million,  or $0.19 per diluted share
compared  to a 
net loss of $124 million, or $0.89 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2011. The fourth quarter 2012 results include after-tax expenses totaling $1.09 per diluted share related to asset impairment charges, asset retirement obligations and expense accruals primarily attributable to the decision to cease refining operations at the Hawaii refinery. Results also include after-tax expenses totaling $0.06 per diluted share primarily related to transaction costs from the announced acquisition of BP's Southern California refining and marketing business. Excluding these items, the Company earned $190 million, or $1.34 per diluted share in the fourth quarter. For the full year 2012, the Company reported net income of $743 million, or $5.25 per diluted share, versus net income of $546 million, or $3.81 per diluted share for the full year 2011. Excluding special items, for the full year 2012, the Company earned net income of $956 million, or $6.76 per diluted share, versus an adjusted net income of $581 million, or $4.05 per diluted share for the full year 2011. "Our solid operating performance allowed us to capture strong crack spreads and report record fourth quarter adjusted earnings per share," said Greg Goff, President and CEO. "For the full year 2012, we continued to demonstrate our ability to drive fundamental improvements in the business while reporting the highest adjusted earnings in the Company's history." With a focus on expanding feedstock advantages and improving products yields, the Company completed three of five large capital refinery projects in 2012, contributing significant additional earnings during the year. In an effort to deliver value-driven growth, the Company added over 225 retail stations during the year. Tesoro also executed three asset sales to Tesoro Logistics and announced the acquisition of Chevron Pipe Line Company's Northwest Products System by Tesoro Logistics, driving significant growth in that business. And finally, the Company announced the acquisition of BP's Southern California refining and marketing business, providing a transformational growth opportunity for both Tesoro and Tesoro Logistics. For the fourth quarter, the Company recorded segment operating income of $150 million, or $405 million excluding special items, compared to a segment operating loss of $96 million, or $89 million excluding special items, in the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase in operating income was driven by a higher margin environment and significantly improved crude oil differentials. The Tesoro Index was $12.40 per barrel (/bbl) for the fourth quarter, up nearly $5/bbl relative to a year ago. Higher light product crack spreads and more attractive heavy crude oil discounts on the West Coast enhanced the benchmark. During the quarter, heavy California crude oil traded at an $11/bbl discount relative to Brent versus a narrow discount of $1/bbl a year ago. Additionally, in the Mid-Continent, the discount of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) to Brent widened by over $6/bbl relative to a year ago. The Company captured a gross margin of $14.25/bbl. Driving the Company's gross margin performance in excess of the Tesoro Index was discounted crude oil compared to benchmark grades of crude oil. On the West Coast, foreign heavy and Canadian light sweet crude oil continued to price at a discount to domestic alternatives. Total throughput in the quarter was 604 thousand barrels per day (mbpd) or 89% utilization. Direct manufacturing costs in the fourth quarter averaged $4.70/bbl, up $0.28/bbl, a result of higher natural gas prices and lower refinery throughput relative to the third quarter of 2012. Retail fuel sales volumes in the fourth quarter were up 20% year-over-year driven by the addition of over 225 retail stations in 2012. Same store fuel sales during the quarter were lower by over 2% on a year-over-year basis, while retail fuel margins were up relative to last year. Corporate and unallocated costs, net of $9 million of corporate depreciation and excluding $7 million in variable stock-based compensation expense and $10 million of transaction costs, primarily related to the acquisition of BP's Southern California refining and marketing business, were $43 million in the fourth quarter. Capital Spending and Liquidity Capital spending for the full year 2012 was $559 million. Turnaround spending for the full year was $261 million. The Company currently anticipates consolidated capital spending in 2013 to be approximately $530 million. Expectations for full year 2013 turnaround spending remain at $310 million. The Company ended the year with over $1.6 billion in cash and remained undrawn with nearly $1.2 billion of availability on the Tesoro Corporation revolving credit facility. Tesoro Logistics ended the quarter undrawn on its separate credit facility. 2013 Strategic Focus "Looking back at 2012, we continued to deliver sustainable improvements in the business, we reinvested free cash flow into high-return capital projects, we drove significant value growth in Tesoro Logistics and we began returning excess cash to shareholders, all in-line with our plan for the year," said Goff. Looking to 2013, the Company remains focused on delivering the announced large capital refining projects, strengthening its West Coast business, capitalizing on its advantaged position in the Mid-Continent, driving additional growth in Tesoro Logistics and executing a cash strategy focused on investing for growth and returning cash to shareholders. Hawaii Refinery Conversion to Terminal On January 8, 2013, Tesoro Corporation announced that it will cease refining operations at its Hawaii refinery during April of this year, and begin the process of converting the refinery to an import, storage and distribution terminal. Tesoro Hawaii will maintain the existing distribution system to support marketing operations and fulfill its supply commitments while continuing to offer the terminal, distribution and retail assets for sale. The Company expects to realize between $300 to 350 million in cash by the end of 2013, driven by a reduction in working capital needs as a result of this conversion. Acquisition Funding Update Tesoro has put in place interim financing facilities for the acquisition of BP's Southern California refining and marketing business. On January 4, 2013, Tesoro amended its revolving credit facility expanding total available capacity from $1.85 billion to $3.0 billion. Additionally, on January 28, 2013, Tesoro closed a three year $500 million term loan credit facility with attractive borrowing rates and flexible repayment provisions. Both facilities become effective upon the transaction close. With the additional credit capacity in place, the Company expects to fund the transaction with between $500 and $600 million of cash and $500 million in term loan borrowings. The remaining $1.2 billion of required funds is expected to be sourced with revolver borrowings and proceeds from the sale of a portion of the logistics assets to Tesoro Logistics at closing. The terms of the logistics sale have yet to be determined or negotiated. Returning Cash to Shareholders Tesoro Corporation today announced that the board of directors has approved a 33% increase in the Company's regular quarterly cash dividend from $0.15 per share to $0.20 per share, effective with the quarterly dividend payable on March 15, 2013 to holders of record at the close of business on February 28, 2013. During the fourth quarter of 2012, Tesoro returned $100 million to shareholders via the purchase of over two and a half million of the Company's shares. Recognizing the continued value opportunity, the Company bought an additional $40 million of shares during the first quarter of 2013, bringing total purchases to $140 million or nearly 30% of the outstanding buyback program.

(k) Management uses gross refining margin per barrel to evaluate performance and compare profitability to other companies in the industry. There are a variety of ways to calculate gross refining margin per barrel; different companies may calculate it in different ways. We calculate gross refining margin per barrel by dividing gross refining margin (revenues less costs of feedstocks, purchased refined products, transportation and distribution) by total refining throughput. Management uses manufacturing costs before depreciation amortization expense ("Manufacturing Costs") per barrel to evaluate the efficiency of refining operations. There are a variety of ways to calculate Manufacturing Costs per barrel; different companies may calculate it in different ways. We calculate Manufacturing Costs per barrel by dividing Manufacturing Costs by total refining throughput. Management uses refined product sales margin per barrel to evaluate the profitability of manufactured and purchased refined products sales. There are a variety of ways to calculate refined product sales margin per barrel; different companies may calculate it in different ways. We calculate refined products sales margin per barrel by dividing refined product sales and refined product cost of sales by total refining throughput, and subtracting refined product cost of sales per barrel from refined product sales per barrel. Investors and analysts use these financial measures to help analyze and compare companies in the industry on the basis of operating performance. These financial measures should not be considered alternatives to segment operating income, revenues, costs of sales and operating expenses or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"). (l)  Consolidated gross refining margin combines gross refining margin for each of our regions adjusted for other amounts not directly attributable to a specific region. Other amounts resulted in an increase of $2 million for both the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $4 million and $6 million for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Gross refining margin includes the effect of intersegment sales to the retail segment at prices which approximate market. Gross refining margin approximates total refining throughput times gross refining margin per barrel. (m) Includes manufacturing depreciation and amortization expense per throughput barrel of approximately $1.60 and $1.70 for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $1.67 for both the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011. (n) Sources of total refined product sales include refined products manufactured at our refineries and refined products purchased from third parties. Total refined product sales margins include margins on sales of manufactured and purchased refined products.  TESORO CORPORATION OPERATING DATA (Unaudited) (Dollars in millions except per barrel

(q)   Management uses fuel margin per gallon to compare profitability to other companies in the industry. There are a variety of ways to calculate fuel margin per gallon; different companies may calculate it in different ways. We calculate fuel margin per gallon by dividing fuel gross margin by fuel sales volumes. Investors and analysts use fuel margin per gallon to help analyze and compare companies in the industry on the basis of operating performance. This financial measure should not be considered an alternative to revenues, segment operating income or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Fuel margin and fuel margin per gallon include the effect of intersegment purchases from the refining segment at prices which approximate market.

(s) EBITDA represents earnings (loss) before depreciation and amortization expense, interest and financing costs, net, income taxes and interest income. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus the impairment charges and asset retirement obligations related to our Hawaii refinery of $248 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively.  We present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because we believe some investors and analysts use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to help analyze our cash flows including our ability to satisfy principal and interest obligations with respect to our indebtedness and use cash for other purposes, including capital expenditures. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is also used by some investors and analysts to analyze and compare companies on the basis of operating performance and by management for internal analysis.  EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to U.S. GAAP net income or net cash from operating activities. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have important limitations as an analytical tool, because it excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income and net cash from operating activities.
