Disclaimers This presentation contains forward-looking statements made by Valero Energy Corporation (“VLO” or “Valero”) and Valero Energy Partners LP (“VLP” or the “Partnership”) within the meaning of federal securities laws. These statements discuss future expectations, contain projections of results of operations or of financial condition or state other forward-looking information. You can identify forward-looking statements by words such as “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “could,” “may,” “will,” “targeting,” “illustrative” or other similar expressions that convey the uncertainty of future events or outcomes. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond the control of Valero or VLP, as applicable, and are difficult to predict. These statements are often based upon various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including examination of historical operating trends made by the management of Valero or VLP, as applicable. Although Valero and VLP believe that the assumptions were reasonable when made, because assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies, which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond their respective control, neither Valero nor VLP can give assurance that either will achieve or accomplish their respective expectations, beliefs or intentions. When considering these forward-looking statements, you should keep in mind the risk factors and other cautionary statements contained in Valero’s and VLP’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Valero’s annual reports on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, and other reports available on Valero’s website at www.valero.com, and VLP’s annual reports on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, and other reports available on VLP’s website at www.valeroenergypartners.com. These risks could cause the actual results of Valero or VLP to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. This presentation includes non-GAAP financial measures. Our reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures are located at the end of this presentation. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP financial measures.

Slide 24

Non-GAAP Disclosures: EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow, and Debt-to-Adjusted Pro Forma EBITDA VLP defines EBITDA as net income before income tax expense, interest and debt expense, net of capitalized interest, and depreciation expense. VLP defines distributable cash flow as EBITDA less (i) EBITDA attributable to its Predecessor and cash payments during the period for interest, income taxes, and maintenance capital expenditures; plus (ii) adjustments related to minimum throughput commitments, capital projects prefunded by Valero, and certain other items. VLP defines coverage ratio as the ratio of distributable cash flow to the total distribution declared. EBITDA, distributable cash flow, debt-to-adjusted pro forma EBITDA, and coverage ratio are supplemental financial measures that are not defined under GAAP. They may be used by management and external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders, and rating agencies, to: describe VLP’s expectation of forecasted earnings; assess VLP’s operating performance as compared to other publicly traded limited partnerships in the transportation and logistics industry, without regard to historical cost basis or, in the case of EBITDA, financing methods; assess the ability of VLP’s business to generate sufficient cash to support its decision to make distributions to its unitholders; assess VLP’s ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and assess the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects and the returns on investment of various investment opportunities. VLP believes that the presentation of EBITDA provides useful information to investors in assessing its financial condition and results of operations. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to EBITDA are net income and net cash provided by operating activities. EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income or net cash provided by operating activities presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool because it excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income or net cash provided by operating activities. EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Additionally, because EBITDA may be defined differently by other companies in our industry, VLP’s definition of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing its utility. VLP uses distributable cash flow to measure whether it has generated from its operations, or “earned,” an amount of cash sufficient to support the payment of the minimum quarterly distributions. VLP’s partnership agreement contains the concept of “operating surplus” to determine whether VLP’s operations are generating sufficient cash to support the distributions that it is paying, as opposed to returning capital to VLP’s partners. Because operating surplus is a cumulative concept (measured from VLP’s IPO date and compared to cumulative distributions from the IPO date), VLP uses the term distributable cash flow to approximate operating surplus on a quarterly or annual, rather than a cumulative, basis. As a result, distributable cash flow is not necessarily indicative of the actual cash VLP has on hand to distribute or that it is required to distribute. VLP uses the distribution coverage ratio to reflect the relationship between its distributable cash flow and the total distribution declared. The debt-to-EBITDA ratio as defined in accordance with VLP’s debt covenants is the total debt and capital lease obligations divided by adjusted pro forma EBITDA for the trailing 12 month period. VLP believes that the presentation of debt-to-EBITDA provides useful information to investors to assess its ability to incur and service debt.
