Andeavor, formerly Tesoro Corporation (“Tesoro”), is an independent refiner and marketer of petroleum products. The company, through its subsidiaries, operates seven refineries in the western United States, a retail-marketing system with over 2,400 retail stations, and ownership in a logistics business.
WSD Capital Management announced its investment in Tesoro in October 2016. We were attracted to the company due to its midstream and its retail/marketing businesses, which we believe are deeply undervalued by the market.
While lower crude oil prices will continue to burden industry participants, we believe that the company is better protected than its peers from unfavorable Brent-WTI and RIN price trends. As the company's asset portfolio transformation continues to move forward, we foresee lower future earnings volatility with diminishing exposure to challenging commodity price fluctuations.
We exited our investment in Tesoro in December 2016.
On August 1, 2017, Tesoro announced that the company changed its name to Andeavor.
