SAN ANTONIO, January 27, 2022 - Valero Energy Corporation (NYSE: VLO, "Valero") today reported net income attributable to Valero stockholders of $1,009 million, or $2.46 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to a net loss of $359 million, or $0.88 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2020. Excluding the adjustments shown in the accompanying earnings release tables, fourth quarter 2021 adjusted net income attributable to Valero stockholders was $1,012 million, or $2.47 per share, compared to an adjusted net loss of $429 million, or $1.06 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2020.

For 2021, net income attributable to Valero stockholders was $930 million, or $2.27 per share, compared to a net loss of $1,421 million, or $3.50 per share, in 2020. Excluding the adjustments shown in the accompanying earnings release tables, adjusted net income attributable to Valero stockholders was $1,152 million, or $2.81 per share, in 2021, compared to an adjusted net loss of $1,265 million, or $3.12 per share, in 2020.

"We saw continued improvement in our business during the fourth quarter with margins supported by strong product demand," said Joe Gorder, Valero Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Looking ahead, we remain optimistic on refining margins with low global light product inventories, strong demand, global supply tightness due to significant refining capacity rationalization, and wider sour crude oil differentials."

1

Refining
The refining segment reported $1.3 billion of operating income for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to a $377 million operating loss for the fourth quarter of 2020. Fourth quarter 2021 adjusted operating income was $1.1 billion, compared to an adjusted operating loss of $476 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. Refinery throughput volumes averaged 3.0 million barrels per day in the fourth quarter of 2021, which was 483 thousand barrels per day higher than the fourth quarter of 2020. 2021 was Valero's best year ever for Employee and Process Safety.

"The Employee and Process safety milestones set in 2021 are a testament to our long-standing commitment to safe, reliable and environmentally responsible operations," said Gorder. "In fact, we have set records for Process Safety for three consecutive years."

Renewable Diesel
The renewable diesel segment, which consists of the Diamond Green Diesel (DGD) joint venture, reported $150 million of operating income for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $127 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. Adjusted renewable diesel operating income was $152 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. Renewable diesel sales volumes averaged 1.6 million gallons per day in the fourth quarter of 2021, which was 974 thousand gallons per day higher than the fourth quarter of 2020. The higher operating income and sales volumes in the fourth quarter of 2021 were primarily attributable to the startup of the DGD expansion project (DGD 2) in the fourth quarter.

Ethanol
The ethanol segment reported $474 million of operating income for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $15 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. Fourth quarter 2021 adjusted operating income was $475 million, compared to $17 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. Ethanol production volumes averaged 4.4 million gallons per day in the fourth quarter of 2021, which was 278 thousand gallons per day higher than the fourth quarter of 2020. Higher operating income in the fourth quarter of 2021 was primarily attributed to higher ethanol product prices.

Corporate and Other
General and administrative expenses were $286 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $224 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. General and administrative expenses were $865 million for the year. The effective tax rate for 2021 was 17 percent, which reflects the benefit from the portion of DGD's net income that is not taxable to Valero.

2

Investing and Financing Activities
Net cash provided by operating activities was $2.5 billion in the fourth quarter of 2021. Included in this amount was a $595 million favorable impact from working capital and $82 million associated with the other joint venture member's share of DGD's net cash provided by operating activities, excluding changes in DGD's working capital. Excluding these items, adjusted net cash provided by operating activities was $1.8 billion in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Net cash provided by operating activities in 2021 was $5.9 billion. Included in this amount was a $2.2 billion favorable impact from working capital and $381 million associated with the other joint venture member's share of DGD's net cash provided by operating activities, excluding changes in DGD's working capital. Excluding these items, adjusted net cash provided by operating activities in 2021 was $3.3 billion.

Capital investments totaled $752 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, of which $353 million was for sustaining the business, including costs for turnarounds, catalysts and regulatory compliance. Excluding capital investments attributable to the other joint venture member's 50 percent share of DGD and those related to other variable interest entities, capital investments attributable to Valero were $545 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 and $1.8 billion in 2021.

Valero returned $401 million to stockholders through dividends in the fourth quarter of 2021. In 2021, Valero returned $1.6 billion to stockholders, or 50 percent of adjusted net cash provided by operating activities.

Valero continues to target a long-term total payout ratio between 40 and 50 percent of adjusted net cash provided by operating activities. Valero defines total payout ratio as the sum of dividends and stock buybacks divided by net cash provided by operating activities adjusted for changes in working capital and DGD's net cash provided by operating activities, excluding changes in its working capital, attributable to the other joint venture member's ownership interest in DGD.

In the fourth quarter, Valero completed a series of debt reduction and refinancing transactions that together reduced Valero's long-term debt by $693 million. These debt reduction and refinancing transactions, combined with the redemption of the $575 million Floating Rate Senior Notes due 2023 in the third quarter, collectively reduced Valero's long-term debt by $1.3 billion in 2021.

Liquidity and Financial Position
Valero ended 2021 with $13.9 billion of total debt and finance lease obligations and $4.1 billion of cash and cash equivalents. The debt to capitalization ratio, net of cash and cash equivalents, was 33 percent as of December 31, 2021.

Strategic Update
The DGD 2 expansion project at Valero's St. Charles refinery commenced operations in the fourth quarter, on-budget and ahead of schedule. DGD 2's annual renewable diesel production capacity has been increased as a result of process improvement and optimization and now stands at 410 million gallons per year, compared to the 400 million gallons per year design capacity. Total DGD renewable diesel production capacity is now 700 million gallons per year.

The DGD project at Valero's Port Arthur refinery (DGD 3), which is expected to have a renewable diesel production capacity of 470 million gallons per year, is progressing ahead of schedule and is now expected to commence operations in the first quarter of 2023, increasing DGD's total annual production capacity to approximately 1.2 billion gallons of renewable diesel and 50 million gallons of renewable naphtha.

BlackRock and Navigator's large-scale carbon sequestration project is also progressing on schedule and is still expected to begin startup activities in late 2024. Valero is expected to be the anchor shipper with eight of Valero's ethanol plants connected to this system, producing a lower carbon intensity ethanol product to be marketed in low-carbon fuel markets that is expected to result in a higher product margin.

Refinery optimization projects that are expected to reduce cost and improve margin capture are progressing on schedule. The Port Arthur Coker project, which is expected to increase the refinery's utilization rate and improve turnaround efficiency, is expected to be completed in the first half of 2023.

Conference Call
Valero's senior management will hold a conference call at 10 a.m. ET today to discuss this earnings release and to provide an update on operations and strategy.

NOTES TO EARNINGS RELEASE TABLES

(a)In mid-February 2021, many of our refineries and plants were impacted to varying extents by the severe cold, utility disruptions, and higher energy costs arising out of Winter Storm Uri. The higher energy costs resulted from an increase in the prices of natural gas and electricity that significantly exceeded rates that we consider normal, such as the average rates we incurred the month preceding the storm. As a result, our operating income for the year ended December 31, 2021 includes estimated excess energy costs of $579 million ($1.15 per share).

The above-mentioned pre-tax estimated excess energy charge is reflected in our statement of income line items and attributable to our reportable segments for the year ended December 31, 2021 as follows (in millions):

Refining Renewable
Diesel
Ethanol Total
Cost of materials and other $ 47 $ - $ - $ 47
Operating expenses (excluding depreciation
and amortization expense)
478 - 54 532
Total estimated excess energy costs $ 525 $ - $ 54 $ 579

The estimated excess energy costs attributable to our refining segment for the year ended December 31, 2021 are associated with the refining segment regions as follows (in millions, except per barrel amounts):

U.S.
Gulf Coast
U.S.
Mid-
Continent

Refining
Segment
Cost of materials and other $ 45 $ 2 $ - $ 47
Operating expenses (excluding depreciation

Effect of estimated excess energy costs

per barrel of throughput (g)
$ 0.79 $ 0.24 n/a $ 0.52

The estimated excess energy costs attributable to our ethanol segment for the year ended December 31, 2021 affected that segment's operating statistics of (i) operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization expenses) per gallon of production and (ii) adjusted operating income (loss) per gallon of production by $0.04 (see note (g) below).

(b)Cost of materials and other for the year ended December 31, 2020 includes a charge of $224 million related to the liquidation of LIFO inventory layers attributable to our refining and ethanol segments. We recorded a charge of $326 million in September 2020 due to the expected liquidation of LIFO inventory layers because our LIFO inventory levels had decreased throughout the first nine months of 2020 due to lower production resulting from lower demand for our products caused by the negative economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, and we expected that our inventory levels at December 31, 2020 would remain below their December 31, 2019 levels. While our actual inventory levels at December 31, 2020 were below their December 31, 2019 levels, they did not decrease as much as expected. Therefore, cost of materials and other for the three months ended December 31, 2020 includes a benefit of $102 million to adjust the $326 million estimate to the $224 million actual charge for the year ended December 31, 2020.

VALERO ENERGY CORPORATION
NOTES TO EARNINGS RELEASE TABLES (Continued)
(c)Under the Renewable Fuel Standard program, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is required to set annual quotas for the volume of renewable fuels that must be blended into petroleum-based transportation fuels consumed in the U.S. by obligated parties. The quotas are used to determine an obligated party's RVO. In December 2021, the U.S. EPA released a proposed rule that, among other things, would modify the volume standards for 2020 and, for the first time, establish volume standards for 2021.

Because the existing volume standards for 2020 were established under a currently enforceable rule, we will recognize the effect of the modification in volume standards for 2020 in the period the final rule is enacted. However, because volume standards have not previously been established for 2021, we considered the new information available in the proposed rule in determining the estimated RVO for our refining segment for the year ended December 31, 2021. As a result, cost of materials and other for the three months ended December 31, 2021 includes a benefit related to the modification of our RVO estimate of $205 million, of which $190 million is attributable to the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

(d)"Other income (loss), net" for the year ended December 31, 2021 includes the following:

◦A gain of $62 million on the sale of a 24.99 percent membership interest in MVP Terminalling, LLC (MVP), an unconsolidated joint venture with a subsidiary of Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P., for $270 million;

◦A charge of $24 million representing our portion of the asset impairment loss recognized by Diamond Pipeline LLC, an unconsolidated joint venture with a subsidiary of Plains All American Pipeline, L.P., resulting from the joint venture's cancellation of its pipeline extension project; and

◦A charge of $193 million from the early redemption and retirement of approximately $2.1 billion aggregate principal amount of various series of our senior notes during the three months ended December 31, 2021.
(e)Certain statutory tax rate changes were enacted during the second quarter of 2021 (primarily an increase in the U.K. rate from 19 percent to 25 percent effective in 2023), which resulted in the remeasurement of our deferred tax liabilities. Under U.S. GAAP, we are required to recognize the effect of a change in tax law in the period of enactment. As a result, we recognized income tax expense of $64 million during the year ended December 31, 2021, which represents the net increase in our deferred tax liabilities resulting from the changes in the tax rates.

(f)Common equivalent shares have been excluded from the computation of loss per common share - assuming dilution and adjusted loss per common share - assuming dilution for the three months and year ended December 31, 2020, as the effect of including such shares is antidilutive.

(g)We use certain financial measures (as noted below) in the earnings release tables and accompanying earnings release that are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are considered to be non-GAAP measures.

We have defined these non-GAAP measures and believe they are useful to the external users of our financial statements, including industry analysts, investors, lenders, and rating agencies. We believe these measures are useful to assess our ongoing financial performance because, when reconciled to their most comparable U.S. GAAP measures, they provide improved comparability between periods after adjusting for certain items that we believe are not indicative of our core operating performance and that may obscure our underlying business results and trends. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered as alternatives to their most comparable U.S. GAAP measures nor should they be considered in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of our results of operations as reported under U.S. GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies because we may define them differently, which diminishes their utility.

Non-GAAP measures are as follows:

◦Adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Valero Energy Corporation stockholders is defined as net income (loss) attributable to Valero Energy Corporation stockholders adjusted to reflect the items noted below, along with their related income tax effect. The income tax effect for the adjustments was calculated using a combined federal and state statutory rate for the U.S.-based adjustments of 22 percent and a local statutory income tax rate for foreign-based adjustments. We have adjusted for these items because we believe that they are not indicative of our core operating performance and that their adjustment results in an important measure of our ongoing financial performance to better assess our underlying business results and trends. The basis for our belief with respect to each adjustment is provided below.

NOTES TO EARNINGS RELEASE TABLES (Continued)
-Modification of RVO - The benefit resulting from the modification of our RVO estimate that was recognized by us in December 2021 is related to the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and is not associated with the cost of the RVO generated by our operations during the three months ended December 31, 2021. See note (c) for additional details.

-Changes in estimated useful lives - The accelerated depreciation recognized as a result of changes in the estimated useful lives of two of our ethanol plants is not indicative of our ongoing operations.

-Gain on sale of MVP interest - The gain on the sale of a 24.99 percent membership interest in MVP (see note (d)) is not indicative of our ongoing operations.

-Diamond Pipeline asset impairment - The asset impairment loss related to the cancellation of a capital project associated with Diamond Pipeline LLC (see note (d)) is not indicative of our ongoing operations.

-Loss on early redemption and retirement of debt - Premiums and other expenses incurred in connection with the early redemption and retirement of approximately $2.1 billion aggregate principal amount of various series of our senior notes (see note (d)) are not associated with the ongoing costs of our borrowing and financing activities.

-Income tax expense related to changes in statutory tax rates - The income tax expense related to changes in certain statutory tax rates (see note (e)) is not indicative of income tax expense associated with the pre-tax results for the year ended December 31, 2021.

-LIFO liquidation adjustment - Generally, the LIFO inventory valuation method provides for the matching of current costs with current revenues. However, a LIFO liquidation results in a portion of our current-year cost of sales being impacted by historical costs, which obscures our current-year financial performance. Therefore, we have excluded the historical cost impact from adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Valero Energy Corporation stockholders. See note (b) for additional details.

-LCM inventory valuation adjustment - The LCM inventory valuation adjustment is associated with adjustments made to the value of our inventories during the year ended December 31, 2020 due to the negative economic impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. The adjustment obscures our financial performance because it does not result from decisions made by us; therefore, we have excluded the adjustment from adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Valero Energy Corporation stockholders.

◦Adjusted earnings (loss) per common share - assuming dilution is defined as adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Valero Energy Corporation stockholders divided by the number of weighted-average shares outstanding in the applicable period, assuming dilution (see note (f)).

◦Refining margin is defined as refining segment operating income (loss) excluding the modification of RVO adjustment (see note (c)), the LIFO liquidation adjustment (see note (b)), the LCM inventory valuation adjustment, operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization expense), depreciation and amortization expense, and other operating expenses. We believe refining margin is an important measure of our refining segment's operating and financial performance as it is the most comparable measure to the industry's market reference product margins, which are used by industry analysts, investors, and others to evaluate our performance.

◦Renewable diesel margin is defined as renewable diesel segment operating income excluding operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization expense), depreciation and amortization expense, and other operating expenses. We believe renewable diesel margin is an important measure of our renewable diesel segment's operating and financial performance as it is the most comparable measure to the industry's market reference product margins, which are used by industry analysts, investors, and others to evaluate our performance.

◦Ethanol margin is defined as ethanol segment operating income (loss) excluding the LIFO liquidation adjustment (see note (b)), operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization expense), depreciation and amortization expense, and other operating expenses. We believe ethanol margin is an important measure of our ethanol segment's operating and financial performance as it is the most comparable measure to the industry's market reference product margins, which are used by industry analysts, investors, and others to evaluate our performance.

◦Adjusted refining operating income (loss) is defined as refining segment operating income (loss) excluding the modification of RVO adjustment (see note (c)), the LIFO liquidation adjustment (see note (b)), the LCM inventory valuation adjustment, and other operating expenses. We believe adjusted refining operating income (loss) is an important measure of our refining segment's operating and financial performance because it excludes items that are not indicative of that segment's core operating performance.
◦Adjusted renewable diesel operating income is defined as renewable diesel segment operating income excluding other operating expenses. We believe adjusted renewable diesel operating income is an important measure of our renewable diesel segment's operating and financial performance because it excludes an item that is not indicative of that segment's core operating performance.
◦Adjusted ethanol operating income (loss) is defined as ethanol segment operating income (loss) excluding the changes in estimated useful lives of two of our ethanol plants, the LIFO liquidation adjustment (see note (b)), and other operating expenses. We believe adjusted ethanol operating income (loss) is an important measure of our ethanol segment's operating and financial performance because it excludes items that are not indicative of that segment's core operating performance.
◦Adjusted net cash provided by operating activities is defined as net cash provided by operating activities excluding the items noted below. We believe adjusted net cash provided by operating activities is an important measure of our ongoing financial performance to better assess our ability to generate cash to fund our investing and financing activities. The basis for our belief with respect to each excluded item is provided below.

-Changes in current assets and current liabilities - Current assets net of current liabilities represents our operating liquidity. We believe that the change in our operating liquidity from period to period does not represent cash generated by our operations that is available to fund our investing and financing activities.

-DGD's adjusted net cash provided by operating activities attributable to the other joint venture member's ownership interest in DGD - We are a 50/50 joint venture member in DGD and we consolidate DGD's financial statements. Our renewable diesel segment includes the operations of DGD and the associated activities to market renewable diesel. Because we consolidate DGD's financial statements, all of DGD's net cash provided by operating activities (or operating cash flow) is included in our consolidated net cash provided by operating activities.

DGD's members use DGD's operating cash flow (excluding changes in its current assets and current liabilities) to fund its capital investments rather than distribute all of that cash to themselves. Nevertheless, DGD's operating cash flow is effectively attributable to each member and only 50 percent of DGD's operating cash flow should be attributed to our net cash provided by operating activities. Therefore, we have adjusted our net cash provided by operating activities for the portion of DGD's operating cash flow attributable to the other joint venture member's ownership interest because we believe that it more accurately reflects the operating cash flow available to us to fund our investing and financing activities. The adjustment is calculated as follows (in millions):

◦Capital investments attributable to Valero, including expected amounts for the year ending December 31, 2022,is defined as all capital expenditures, deferred turnaround and catalyst cost expenditures, and investments in unconsolidated joint ventures presented in our consolidated statements of cash flows, excluding the portion of DGD's capital investments attributable to the other joint venture member and all of the capital expenditures of VIEs other than DGD.

DGD's members use DGD's operating cash flow (excluding changes in its current assets and current liabilities) to fund its capital investments rather than distribute all of that cash to themselves. Because DGD's operating cash flow is effectively attributable to each member, only 50 percent of DGD's capital investments should be attributed to our net share of total capital investments. We also exclude the capital expenditures of our consolidated VIEs other than DGD because we do not operate those VIEs. All expected amounts for the year ending December 31, 2022 exclude capital expenditures that our consolidated VIEs other than DGD may incur because we do not operate those VIEs. We believe capital investments attributable to Valero, including expected amounts for the year ending December 31, 2022, is an important measure because it more accurately reflects our capital investments.

(h)The refining segment regions reflected herein contain the following refineries: U.S.Gulf Coast- Corpus Christi East, Corpus Christi West, Houston, Meraux, Port Arthur, St. Charles, Texas City, and Three Rivers Refineries; U.S.MidContinent- Ardmore, McKee, and Memphis Refineries; North Atlantic- Pembroke and Quebec City Refineries; and U.S.West Coast- Benicia and Wilmington Refineries.

(i)Primarily includes petrochemicals, gas oils, No. 6 fuel oil, petroleum coke, sulfur, and asphalt.

(j)Valero uses certain operating statistics (as noted below) in the earnings release tables and the accompanying earnings release to evaluate performance between comparable periods. Different companies may calculate them in different ways.

All per barrel of throughput, per gallon of sales, and per gallon of production amounts are calculated by dividing the associated dollar amount by the throughput volumes, sales volumes, and production volumes for the period, as applicable.

Throughput volumes, sales volumes, and production volumes are calculated by multiplying throughput volumes per day, sales volumes per day, and production volumes per day (as provided in the accompanying tables), respectively, by the number of days in the applicable period. We use throughput volumes, sales volumes, and production volumes for the refining segment, renewable diesel segment, and ethanol segment, respectively, due to their general use by others who operate facilities similar to those included in our segments. We believe the use of such volumes results in per unit amounts that are most representative of the product margins generated and the operating costs incurred as a result of our operation of those facilities.
