Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot assure you that our expectations will prove to be correct. Therefore, actual outcomes and results could materially differ from what is expressed, implied or forecast in these statements.

FCC ,” or fluid catalytic cracking, means a refinery process that breaks down large complex hydrocarbon molecules into smaller more useful ones using a circulating bed of catalyst at relatively high temperatures.

Hydrodesulfurization ” means to remove sulfur and nitrogen compounds from oil or gas in the presence of hydrogen and a catalyst at relatively high temperatures.

Hydrogen plant ” means a refinery unit that converts natural gas and steam to high purity hydrogen, which is then used in the hydrodesulfurization, hydrocracking and isomerization processes.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)


NOTE 1:
Description of Business and Presentation of Financial Statements

References herein to HollyFrontier Corporation (“HollyFrontier”) include HollyFrontier and its consolidated subsidiaries. In accordance with the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) “Plain English” guidelines, this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q has been written in the first person. In these financial statements, the words “we,” “our,” “ours” and “us” refer only to HollyFrontier and its consolidated subsidiaries or to HollyFrontier or an individual subsidiary and not to any other person, with certain exceptions. Generally, the words “we,” “our,” “ours” and “us” include Holly Energy Partners, L.P. (“HEP”) and its subsidiaries as consolidated subsidiaries of HollyFrontier, unless when used in disclosures of transactions or obligations between HEP and HollyFrontier or its other subsidiaries. These financial statements contain certain disclosures of agreements that are specific to HEP and its consolidated subsidiaries and do not necessarily represent obligations of HollyFrontier. When used in descriptions of agreements and transactions, “HEP” refers to HEP and its consolidated subsidiaries.

We are principally an independent petroleum refiner that produces high-value light products such as gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel, specialty lubricant products, and specialty and modified asphalt. We own and operate petroleum refineries that serve markets throughout the Mid-Continent, Southwest and Rocky Mountain regions of the United States. In addition, we own and operate a lubricant production facility with retail and wholesale marketing of its products through a global sales network with locations in Canada, United States, Europe and China. As of June 30, 2017 , we:

owned and operated a petroleum refinery in El Dorado, Kansas (the “El Dorado Refinery”), two refinery facilities located in Tulsa, Oklahoma (collectively, the “Tulsa Refineries”), a refinery in Artesia, New Mexico that is operated in conjunction with crude oil distillation and vacuum distillation and other facilities situated 65 miles away in Lovington, New Mexico (collectively, the “Navajo Refinery”), a refinery located in Cheyenne, Wyoming (the “Cheyenne Refinery”) and a refinery in Woods Cross, Utah (the “Woods Cross Refinery”);
owned and operated HollyFrontier Asphalt Company LLC (“HFC Asphalt”) which operates various asphalt terminals in Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma;
owned and operated Petro-Canada Lubricants Inc. (“PCLI”) located in Mississauga, Ontario which produces base oils and other specialized lubricant products; and
owned a 36% interest in HEP, a consolidated variable interest entity (“VIE”), which includes our 2% general partner interest.

On October 29, 2016, our wholly-owned subsidiary, 9952110 Canada Inc., entered into a Share Purchase Agreement (“SPA”) with Suncor Energy Inc. (“Suncor”) to acquire 100% of the outstanding capital stock of PCLI. The acquisition closed on February 1, 2017. See Note 2 for additional information.

We have prepared these consolidated financial statements without audit. In management’s opinion, these consolidated financial statements include all normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of our consolidated financial position as of June 30, 2017 , the consolidated results of operations and comprehensive income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 and consolidated cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC. Although certain notes and other information required by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted, we believe that the disclosures in these consolidated financial statements are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 that has been filed with the SEC.

Our results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be realized for the year ending December 31, 2017 .

Accounts Receivable: Our accounts receivable consist of amounts due from customers that are primarily companies in the petroleum industry. Credit is extended based on our evaluation of the customer’s financial condition, and in certain circumstances collateral, such as letters of credit or guarantees, is required. We reserve for doubtful accounts based on our historical loss experience as well as specific accounts identified as high risk, which historically have been minimal. Credit losses are charged to the allowance for doubtful accounts when an account is deemed uncollectible. Our allowance for doubtful accounts was $3.7 million and $2.3 million at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 , respectively.

Inventories: Inventories related to our refining operations are stated at the lower of cost, using the last-in, first-out (“LIFO”) method for crude oil and unfinished and finished refined products, or market. In periods of rapidly declining prices, LIFO inventories may have to be written down to market value due to the higher costs assigned to LIFO layers in prior periods. In addition, the use of the LIFO inventory method may result in increases or decreases to cost of sales in years that inventory volumes decline as the result of charging cost of sales with LIFO inventory costs generated in prior periods. An actual valuation of inventory under the LIFO method is made at the end of each year based on the inventory levels at that time. Accordingly, interim LIFO calculations are based on management’s estimates of expected year-end inventory levels and are subject to the final year-end LIFO inventory valuation.

Inventories consisting of process chemicals, materials and maintenance supplies and renewable identification numbers (“RINs”) are stated at the lower of weighted-average cost or net realizable value.

Inventories of our PCLI operations are stated at the lower of cost, using the first-in, first-out (“FIFO”) method, or net realizable value.

Goodwill and Long-lived Assets: As of June 30, 2017 , our goodwill balance was $2.2 billion , with goodwill assigned to our Refining, PCLI and HEP segments of $1.7 billion , $0.2 billion and $0.3 billion , respectively. During 2017, we recognized $184.2 million in goodwill as a result of our PCLI acquisition, all of which has been assigned to our PCLI segment. See Note 16 for additional information on our segments. Goodwill represents the excess of the cost of an acquired entity over the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed. Goodwill is not subject to amortization and is tested annually or more frequently if an event occurs or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of a reporting unit below its carrying amount. Our goodwill impairment testing first entails a comparison of our reporting unit fair values relative to their respective carrying values. If carrying value exceeds fair value for a reporting unit, we measure goodwill impairment as the excess of the carrying amount of reporting unit goodwill over the implied fair value of that goodwill based on estimates of the fair value of all assets and liabilities in the reporting unit. As of June 30, 2017 , we have a cumulative goodwill impairment of $309.3 million , all of which relates to goodwill assigned to our Cheyenne Refinery reporting unit that was fully impaired in the second quarter of 2016.

Additionally, the carrying amount of our goodwill may fluctuate from period to period due to the effects of foreign currency translation adjustments on goodwill assigned to our PCLI segment.

As of June 30, 2017 , the fair value of our El Dorado reporting unit exceeded its carrying value by approximately 18% . A reasonable expectation exists that further deterioration in gross margins could result in an impairment of goodwill and the long-lived assets of the El Dorado reporting unit at some point in the future and such impairment charges could be material.

Our long-lived assets principally consist of our refining assets that are organized as refining asset groups and our PCLI business. The refinery asset groups also constitute our individual refinery reporting units that are used for testing and measuring goodwill impairments. Our long-lived assets are evaluated for impairment by identifying whether indicators of impairment exist and if so, assessing whether the long-lived assets are recoverable from estimated future undiscounted cash flows. The actual amount of impairment loss measured, if any, is equal to the amount by which the asset group’s carrying value exceeds its fair value. As a result of our impairment testing in the second quarter of 2016, we determined that the carrying value of the long-lived assets of the Cheyenne Refinery had been impaired and recorded long-lived asset impairment charges of $344.8 million .

During the second quarter of 2017, we incurred long-lived asset impairment charges totaling $23.2 million , including $19.2 million of construction-in-progress consisting primarily of engineering work for a planned expansion of our Woods Cross refinery to add lubricants production capabilities. During the second quarter of 2017, we concluded to no longer pursue this expansion for various reasons including our recent acquisition of PCLI. The remaining $4.0 million in charges relate to property, plant and equipment that we expensed in the form of accelerated depreciation in the income statement.

Revenue Recognition: Refined product sales and related cost of sales are recognized when products are shipped and title has passed to customers. HEP recognizes pipeline transportation revenues as products are shipped through its pipelines. All revenues are reported inclusive of shipping and handling costs billed and exclusive of any taxes billed to customers. Shipping and handling costs incurred are reported in cost of products sold.

For PCLI subsidiaries in Canada and in the U.S., a portion of sales are made to marketers and distributors under agreements which provide certain rights of return or provisions for PCLI to repurchase product in order to sell directly to end customers. Based on the terms of these agreements, PCLI defers revenues and cost of revenues on sales to Canadian marketers until the related products have been sold to end customers, and PCLI recognizes revenues for sales to its U.S. distributors when products are shipped to the distributors, net of allowances for returns related to inventories PCLI is expected to repurchase from the distributors to sell directly to end customers.

Foreign Currency Translation: The functional currency of our PCLI operations consists of the respective local currency of its foreign operations, which includes the Canadian dollar, the euro and Chinese renminbi. Balance sheet accounts are translated into U.S. dollars using exchange rates in effect as of the balance sheet date. Revenue and expense accounts are translated using the weighted-average exchange rates during the period presented. Foreign currency translation adjustments are recorded as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income.

In connection with our PCLI acquisition on February 1, 2017, we issued intercompany notes to initially fund certain of PCLI’s foreign businesses. Remeasurement adjustments resulting from the conversion of such intercompany financing from local currencies to the U.S. dollar are recorded as gains and losses as a component of other income (expense) in the income statement. Such adjustments are not recorded to the PCLI segment operations, but to corporate and other. See Note 16 for additional information on our segments.

Income Taxes : Provisions for income taxes include deferred taxes resulting from temporary differences in income for financial and tax purposes, using the liability method of accounting for income taxes. The liability method requires the effect of tax rate changes on deferred income taxes to be reflected in the period in which the rate change was enacted. The liability method also requires that deferred tax assets be reduced by a valuation allowance unless it is more likely than not that the assets will be realized.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017 , we recorded an income tax expense of $15.2 million compared to an income tax benefit of $15.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 . This increase was due principally to pre-tax income during the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to a pre-tax loss in the same period of 2016 . Our effective tax rates, before consideration of earnings attributable to the noncontrolling interest, were 29.5% and 4.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 , respectively.

Potential interest and penalties related to income tax matters are recognized in income tax expense. We believe we have appropriate support for the income tax positions taken and to be taken on our income tax returns and that our accruals for tax liabilities are adequate for all open years based on an assessment of many factors, including past experience and interpretations of tax law applied to the facts of each matter.

Inventory Repurchase Obligations: We periodically enter into same-party sell / buy transactions, whereby we sell certain refined product inventory and subsequently repurchase the inventory in order to facilitate delivery to certain locations. Such sell / buy transactions are accounted for as inventory repurchase obligations under which proceeds received under the initial sell is recognized as an inventory repurchase obligation that is subsequently reversed when the inventory is repurchased. For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 , we received proceeds of $26.2 million and $29.8 million , respectively, and repaid $27.0 million and $30.2 million , respectively, under these sell / buy transactions.

New Accounting Pronouncements

Post-retirement Benefit Cost
In March 2017, Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) 2017-07, “Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Post-retirement Benefit Cost,” was issued amending current GAAP related to the income statement presentation of the components of net periodic post-retirement cost (credit). This standard has an effective date of January 1, 2018. We do not expect adoption of this standard to have a material impact on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

HOLLYFRONTIER CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Share-Based Compensation
In March 2016, ASU 2016-09, “Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting,” was issued which simplifies the accounting for employee share-based payment transactions, including the accounting for income taxes, forfeitures and statutory tax withholding requirements, as well as classification in the statement of cash flows. We adopted this standard effective January 1, 2017. As the result of the adoption, on a prospective basis, we recognized zero and $0.1 million of excess tax expense from stock-based compensation as a discrete item in our provision for income taxes for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 . The new standard also requires that employee taxes paid when an employer withholds shares for tax-withholding purposes be reported as financing activities in the statement of cash flows on a retrospective basis. Previously, this activity was included in operating activities. The impact of this change for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 was $0.3 million and zero , respectively. Finally, consistent with our existing policy, we have elected to account for forfeitures on an estimated basis.

Leases
In February 2016, ASU 2016-02, “Leases,” was issued requiring leases to be measured and recognized as a lease liability, with a corresponding right-of-use asset on the balance sheet. This standard has an effective date of January 1, 2019, and we are evaluating the impact of this standard.

Inventories Measurement
In July 2015, ASU 2015-11, “Inventory - Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory,” was issued requiring measurement of inventories, other than inventories accounted for using the LIFO method, to be measured at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Net realizable value is defined as the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business less reasonable, predictable cost of completion, disposal and transportation. We adopted this standard effective January 1, 2017 for our affected inventories, which is primarily our PCLI inventory valued on a FIFO basis, and it had no material effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

Revenue Recognition
In May 2014, ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” was issued requiring revenue to be recognized when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the expected consideration for these goods or services. This standard has an effective date of January 1, 2018, and we anticipate using the modified retrospective implementation method, whereby a cumulative effect adjustment is recorded to retained earnings as of the date of initial application. Our preparation for adoption of this standard is in progress, and we are currently evaluating terms, conditions and our performance obligations of our existing contracts with customers. We are also evaluating the effect of this standard on our revenue recognition policies and whether it will have a material impact on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.


NOTE 2:
PCLI Acquisition

On October 29, 2016, our wholly-owned subsidiary, 9952110 Canada Inc., entered into an SPA with Suncor to acquire 100% of the outstanding capital stock of PCLI. The acquisition closed on February 1, 2017. Cash consideration paid at that time was approximately $862.0 million , or $1.125 billion in Canadian dollars. PCLI is located in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada and is a producer of lubricant products such as base oils, white oils, specialty products and finished lubricants. PCLI’s operations also include marketing of its products to both retail and wholesale outlets through a global sales network with locations in Canada, the United States, Europe and China.

Aggregate consideration totaled approximately $904.3 million and consists of $862.0 million in cash paid to Suncor at acquisition, a closing date working capital settlement of $30.6 million that was paid to Suncor in the second quarter of 2017, an accrued payable in the amount of $6.5 million and $5.1 million , representing a portion of the fair value of replacement restricted stock unit awards issued to PCLI employees that relate to pre-acquisition services.
This transaction is accounted for as a business combination using the acquisition method of accounting, with the purchase price allocated to the fair value of the acquired PCLI assets and liabilities as of the February 1 acquisition date, with the excess purchase price recorded as goodwill assigned to our PCLI segment. This goodwill is not deductible for income tax purposes.

These estimated values are not final and may be subject to additional change once all needed information has become available and we complete our valuations.

Our consolidated financial and operating results reflect the PCLI operations beginning February 1, 2017. Our results of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2017 included PCLI revenues and net income of $309.6 million and $12.6 million , respectively, and $511.5 million and $21.1 million for the period from February 1, 2017 through June 30, 2017 .
As of June 30, 2017 , we have incurred $19.3 million in incremental direct acquisition and integration costs that principally relate to legal, advisory and other professional fees and are presented as general and administrative expenses.

NOTE 3:
Holly Energy Partners

HEP, a consolidated VIE, is a publicly held master limited partnership that owns and operates logistic assets consisting of petroleum product and crude oil pipelines, terminals, tankage, loading rack facilities and refinery processing units that principally support our refining and marketing operations in the Mid-Continent, Southwest and Rocky Mountain regions of the United States and Alon USA, Inc.’s (“Alon”) refinery in Big Spring, Texas. Additionally, HEP owns a 75% interest in UNEV Pipeline, LLC (“UNEV”), the owner of a pipeline running from Woods Cross, Utah to Las Vegas, Nevada (the “UNEV Pipeline”) and associated product terminals; a 50% interest in Frontier Aspen LLC, the owner of a pipeline running from Wyoming to Frontier Station, Utah (the “Frontier Pipeline”); a 50% interest in Osage Pipe Line Company, LLC, the owner of a pipeline running from Cushing, Oklahoma to El Dorado, Kansas (the “Osage Pipeline”); a 50% interest in Cheyenne Pipeline, LLC, the owner of a pipeline running from Fort Laramie, Wyoming to Cheyenne, Wyoming (the “Cheyenne Pipeline”); and a 25% interest in SLC Pipeline LLC, the owner of a pipeline (the “SLC Pipeline”) that serves refineries in the Salt Lake City, Utah area.

As of June 30, 2017 , we owned a 36% interest in HEP, including the 2% general partner interest. As the general partner of HEP, we have the sole ability to direct the activities that most significantly impact HEP’s financial performance, and therefore we consolidate HEP.

HEP has two primary customers (including us) and generates revenues by charging tariffs for transporting petroleum products and crude oil through its pipelines, by charging fees for terminalling refined products and other hydrocarbons, and storing and providing other services at its storage tanks and terminals. Under our long-term transportation agreements with HEP (discussed further below), we accounted for 85% of HEP’s total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2017 . We do not provide financial or equity support through any liquidity arrangements and / or debt guarantees to HEP.

HEP has outstanding debt under a senior secured revolving credit agreement and its senior notes. HEP’s creditors have no recourse to our assets. Furthermore, our creditors have no recourse to the assets of HEP and its consolidated subsidiaries. See Note 10 for a description of HEP’s debt obligations.

HEP has risk associated with its operations. If a major customer of HEP were to terminate its contracts or fail to meet desired shipping or throughput levels for an extended period of time, revenue would be reduced and HEP could suffer substantial losses to the extent that a new customer is not found. In the event that HEP incurs a loss, our operating results will reflect HEP’s loss, net of intercompany eliminations, to the extent of our ownership interest in HEP at that point in time.

Cheyenne Pipeline
On June 3, 2016, HEP acquired a 50% interest in Cheyenne Pipeline LLC, owner of the Cheyenne Pipeline, in exchange for a contribution of $42.5 million in cash to Cheyenne Pipeline LLC. Cheyenne Pipeline will continue to be operated by an affiliate of Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (“Plains”), which owns the remaining 50% interest. The 87 -mile crude oil pipeline runs from Fort Laramie, Wyoming to Cheyenne, Wyoming and has an 80,000 BPD capacity.

Tulsa Tanks
On March 31, 2016, HEP acquired crude oil tanks located at our Tulsa Refineries from Plains for $39.5 million . Previously in 2009, we sold these tanks to Plains and leased them back, and due to our continuing interest in the tanks, we accounted for the transaction as a financing arrangement. Accordingly, the tanks remained on our balance sheet and were depreciated for accounting purposes, and the proceeds received from Plains were recorded as a financing obligation and presented as a component of outstanding debt.

In accounting for HEP’s March 2016 purchase from Plains, the amount paid was recorded against our outstanding financing obligation balance of $30.8 million , with the excess $8.7 million payment resulting in a loss on early extinguishment of debt.

Magellan Asset Exchange
On February 22, 2016, we acquired a 50% membership interest in Osage Pipe Line Company, LLC (“Osage”) in exchange for a 20-year terminalling services agreement, whereby a subsidiary of Magellan Midstream Partners (“Magellan Midstream”) will provide terminalling services for all of our products originating in Artesia, New Mexico that require terminalling in or through El Paso, Texas. Under the agreement, we will be charged tariffs based on the volumes of refined product processed. Osage is the owner of the Osage Pipeline, a 135 -mile pipeline that transports crude oil from Cushing, Oklahoma to our El Dorado Refinery in Kansas and also has a connection to the Jayhawk pipeline that services the CHS refinery in McPherson, Kansas. This exchange was accounted for at fair value, whereby the 50% membership interest in the Osage Pipeline was recorded at appraised fair value and an offsetting residual deferred credit in the amount of $38.9 million was recorded, which will be amortized to cost of products sold over the 20-year service period. No gain or loss was recorded for this exchange.

Also on February 22, 2016, we contributed the 50% membership interest in Osage to HEP, and in exchange received HEP’s El Paso terminal. Pursuant to this exchange, HEP agreed to build two connections to Magellan Midstream’s El Paso terminal. In addition, HEP agreed to become operator of the Osage Pipeline. This exchange was accounted for at carry-over basis with no resulting gain or loss.

HEP Common Unit Continuous Offering Program
On May 10, 2016, HEP established a continuous offering program under which HEP may issue and sell common units from time to time, representing limited partner interests, up to an aggregate gross sales amount of $200 million . During the six months ended June 30, 2017 , HEP issued 1,538,452 units under this program, providing $52.4 million in net proceeds. In connection with this program and to maintain our 2% general partner interest in HEP, we made capital contributions totaling $1.1 million . As of June 30, 2017 , HEP has issued 2,241,907 units with an aggregate gross sales amount of $77.1 million .

HEP intends to use the net proceeds for general partnership purposes, which may include funding working capital, repayment of debt, acquisitions and capital expenditures. Amounts repaid under HEP’s credit facility may be reborrowed from time to time.

As a result of this transaction and resulting HEP ownership changes, we adjusted additional capital and equity attributable to HEP's noncontrolling interest holders to reallocate HEP's equity among its unitholders.

Transportation Agreements
HEP serves our refineries under long-term pipeline, terminal and tankage throughput agreements and refinery processing tolling agreements expiring from 2019 through 2036. Under these agreements, we pay HEP fees to transport, store and process throughput volumes of refined products, crude oil and feedstocks on HEP’s pipeline, terminals, tankage, loading rack facilities and refinery processing units that result in minimum annual payments to HEP including UNEV (a consolidated subsidiary of HEP). Under these agreements, the agreed upon tariff rates are subject to annual tariff rate adjustments on July 1 at a rate based upon the percentage change in Producer Price Index or Federal Energy Regulatory Commission index. As of July 1, 2017, these agreements result in minimum annualized payments to HEP of $321.6 million .


NOTE 4:
Fair Value Measurements

Our financial instruments measured at fair value on a recurring basis consist of investments in marketable securities and derivative instruments.

Fair value measurements are derived using inputs (assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability, including assumptions about risk). GAAP categorizes inputs used in fair value measurements into three broad levels as follows:

(Level 1) Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
(Level 2) Observable inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active or can be corroborated by observable market data.
(Level 3) Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities. This includes valuation techniques that involve significant unobservable inputs.

The carrying amounts of marketable securities and derivative instruments at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 were as follows:

Level 1 Instruments
Our NYMEX futures contracts are exchange traded and are measured and recorded at fair value using quoted market prices, a Level 1 input.

Level 2 Instruments
Investments in marketable securities, derivative instruments consisting of commodity price swaps and forward sales and purchase contracts and HEP’s interest rate swaps are measured and recorded at fair value using Level 2 inputs. The fair values of the commodity price and interest rate swap contracts are based on the net present value of expected future cash flows related to both variable and fixed rate legs of the respective swap agreements. The measurements are computed using market-based observable inputs, quoted forward commodity prices with respect to our commodity price swaps and the forward London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) yield curve with respect to HEP’s interest rate swaps. The fair value of the marketable securities is based on values provided by a third-party, which were derived using market quotes for similar type instruments, a Level 2 input.

Level 3 Instruments
We at times have commodity price swap contracts that relate to forecasted sales of unleaded gasoline and forward commodity sales and purchase contracts for which quoted forward market prices are not readily available. The forward rate used to value these price swaps and forward sales and purchase contracts are derived using a projected forward rate using quoted market rates for similar products, adjusted for regional pricing and grade differentials, a Level 3 input.

The following table presents the changes in fair value of our Level 3 assets and liabilities (all related to derivative instruments) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 :

NOTE 6:
Stock-Based Compensation

As of June 30, 2017 , we have two principal share-based compensation plans (collectively, the “Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plan”).

The compensation cost charged against income for these plans was $8.4 million and $6.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 , respectively, and $15.4 million and $8.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 , respectively. Our accounting policy for the recognition of compensation expense for awards with pro-rata vesting is to expense the costs ratably over the vesting periods.

Additionally, HEP maintains a share-based compensation plan for Holly Logistic Services, L.L.C.’s non-employee directors and certain executives and employees. Compensation cost attributable to HEP’s share-based compensation plan was $0.7 million and $0.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 , respectively, and $1.1 million and $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 , respectively.

Restricted Stock and Restricted Stock Units
Under our Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plan, we grant certain officers and other key employees restricted stock and restricted stock unit awards with awards generally vesting over a period of one to three years. Restricted stock award recipients are generally entitled to all the rights of absolute ownership of the restricted shares from the date of grant including the right to vote the shares and to receive dividends. Upon vesting, restrictions on the restricted shares lapse at which time they convert to common shares. In addition, we grant non-employee directors restricted stock unit awards, which typically vest over a period of one year and are payable in stock. The fair value of each restricted stock and restricted stock unit award is measured based on the grant date market price of our common shares and is amortized over the respective vesting period.

(1) Includes restricted stock units issued to PCLI employees.

In connection with our February 1, 2017 PCLI acquisition, we issued 472,276 restricted stock units to PCLI employees as replacement units for unvested awards issued under the legacy PCLI plan. The fair value of these awards totaled $13.3 million and is based on a February 1 grant date value of $28.12 per unit. Of this total, $5.1 million is recognized as an increase to our PCLI purchase price as it represents the value of the awards attributable to pre-acquisition services, and the remaining $8.2 million to be recognized as compensation expense over the two-year vesting period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017 , restricted stock and restricted stock units vested having a grant date fair value of $1.0 million . As of June 30, 2017 , there was $31.2 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested restricted stock and restricted stock unit grants. That cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.3 years.

Performance Share Units
Under our Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plan, we grant certain officers and other key employees performance share units, which are payable in stock upon meeting certain criteria over the service period, and generally vest over a period of three years. Under the terms of our performance share unit grants, awards are subject to “financial performance” and “market performance” criteria. Financial performance is based on our financial performance compared to a peer group of independent refining companies, while market performance is based on the relative standing of total shareholder return achieved by HollyFrontier compared to peer group companies. The number of shares ultimately issued under these awards can range from zero to 200% of target award amounts. As of June 30, 2017 , estimated share payouts for outstanding non-vested performance share unit awards averaged approximately 60% of target amounts.

A summary of performance share unit activity and changes during the six months ended June 30, 2017 is presented below:

NOTE 7:
Cash and Cash Equivalents and Investments in Marketable Securities

Our investment portfolio at June 30, 2017 consisted of cash and cash equivalents.

We invest in marketable debt securities with the maximum maturity or put date of any individual issue generally not greater than one year from the date of purchase, which are usually held until maturity. All of these instruments are classified as available-for-sale and are reported at fair value. Interest income is recorded as earned. Unrealized gains and losses, net of related income taxes, are reported as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income. Upon sale or maturity, realized gains on our marketable debt securities are recognized as interest income. These gains are computed based on the specific identification of the underlying cost of the securities, net of unrealized gains and losses previously reported in other comprehensive income. Unrealized gains and losses on our available-for-sale securities are due to changes in market prices and are considered temporary.

Inventories, which are valued at the lower of LIFO cost or market, reflect a valuation reserve of $428.3 million and $332.5 million at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 , respectively. The December 31, 2016 market reserve of $332.5 million was reversed due to the sale of inventory quantities that gave rise to the 2016 reserve. A new market reserve of $428.3 million was established as of June 30, 2017 based on market conditions and prices at that time. The effect of the change in lower of cost or market reserve was an increase to cost of goods sold totaling $84.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and a decrease of $138.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 , respectively, and an increase to cost of goods sold totaling $95.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and a decrease of $194.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 .

At June 30, 2017 , the LIFO value of inventory, net of the lower of cost or market reserve, was equal to current costs.

In May 2017, the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) granted the Cheyenne Refinery a one-year small refinery exemption from the Renewable Fuel Standard (“RFS”) program requirements for the 2016 calendar year. As a result, the Cheyenne Refinery’s gasoline and diesel production are not subject to the percentage of production that must satisfy a Renewable Volume Obligation (“RVO”) for 2016. We are currently working with the EPA to reinstate the RINs previously submitted to meet our Cheyenne Refinery’s 2016 RVO and expect the EPA to reinstate these RINs. The cost of the RINs used earlier to satisfy the Cheyenne Refinery’s 2016 RVO of $30.5 million was charged to cost of products sold in 2016. In the second quarter of 2017, we increased our inventory of RINs and reduced our cost of products sold by this amount, representing the cost of the RINs to be reinstated as a result of the RFS exemption received by the Cheyenne Refinery.


NOTE 9:
Environmental

Environmental costs are charged to operating expenses if they relate to an existing condition caused by past operations and do not contribute to current or future revenue generation. We have ongoing investigations of environmental matters at various locations and routinely assess our recorded environmental obligations, if any, with respect to such matters. Liabilities are recorded when site restoration and environmental remediation, cleanup and other obligations are either known or considered probable and can be reasonably estimated. Such estimates are undiscounted and require judgment with respect to costs, time frame and extent of required remedial and cleanup activities and are subject to periodic adjustments based on currently available information. Recoveries of environmental costs through insurance, indemnification arrangements or other sources are included in other assets to the extent such recoveries are considered probable.

We reduced expense by $0.9 million for each of the three and the six months ended June 30, 2017 and incurred expense of $0.5 million and $1.3 million for the three and the six months ended June 30, 2016 , respectively, for environmental remediation obligations. The accrued environmental liability reflected in our consolidated balance sheets was $91.3 million and $96.4 million at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 , respectively, of which $82.9 million and $82.9 million , respectively, were classified as other long-term liabilities. These accruals include remediation and monitoring costs expected to be incurred over an extended period of time (up to 30 years for certain projects). The amount of our accrued liability includes PCLI environmental obligations of $4.6 million assumed upon our February 1, 2017 acquisition. Estimated liabilities could increase in the future when the results of ongoing investigations become known, are considered probable and can be reasonably estimated.


NOTE 10:
Debt

HollyFrontier Credit Agreement
In February 2017, we increased the size of our senior unsecured revolving credit facility from $1 billion to $1.35 billion and extended the maturity date to February 2022 (the “HollyFrontier Credit Agreement”). The Holly Frontier Credit Agreement may be used for revolving credit loans and letters of credit from time to time and is available to fund general corporate purposes. During the six months ended June 30, 2017 , we received advances totaling $26.0 million and repaid $26.0 million under the HollyFrontier Credit Agreement. At June 30, 2017 , we were in compliance with all covenants, had no outstanding borrowings and had outstanding letters of credit totaling $3.1 million under the HollyFrontier Credit Agreement.

HOLLYFRONTIER CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited) Continued



HEP Credit Agreement
At June 30, 2017, HEP had a $1.2 billion senior secured revolving credit facility maturing in November 2018 (the “HEP Credit Agreement”). During the six months ended June 30, 2017 , HEP received advances totaling $479.0 million and repaid $189.0 million under the HEP Credit Agreement. At June 30, 2017 , HEP was in compliance with all of its covenants, had outstanding borrowings of $843.0 million and no outstanding letters of credit under the HEP Credit Agreement.

In July 2017, the HEP Credit Agreement was amended to increase the size of the facility to $1.4 billion and to extend the maturity to July 2022 (the “HEP Amended Credit Agreement”) The HEP Amended Credit Agreement is available to fund capital expenditures, investments, acquisitions, distribution payments, working capital and for general partnership purposes. It is also available to fund letters of credit up to a $50 million sub-limit and has a $300 million accordion.

HEP’s obligations under the HEP Amended Credit Agreement are collateralized by substantially all of HEP’s assets and is guaranteed by HEP’s material wholly-owned subsidiaries. Any recourse to the general partner would be limited to the extent of HEP Logistics Holdings, L.P.’s assets, which other than its investment in HEP are not significant. HEP’s creditors have no recourse to our other assets. Furthermore, our creditors have no recourse to the assets of HEP and its consolidated subsidiaries.

HollyFrontier Senior Notes
Our 5.875% senior notes ( $1 billion aggregate principal amount maturing April 2026) (the “HollyFrontier Senior Notes”) are unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of ours and rank equally with all our other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated indebtedness.

HollyFrontier Financing Obligation
In March 2016, we extinguished a financing obligation at a cost of $39.5 million and recognized an $8.7 million loss on the early termination. The financing obligation related to a sale and lease-back of certain crude oil tankage that we sold to an affiliate of Plains in October 2009 for $40.0 million .

HollyFrontier Term Loan
In April 2016, we entered into a $350 million senior unsecured term loan (the “HollyFrontier Term Loan”) maturing in April 2019. The HollyFrontier Term Loan was fully repaid with proceeds received upon the November 2016 issuance of the HollyFrontier Senior Notes.

HEP Senior Notes
HEP’s 6.0% senior notes ( $400 million aggregate principal amount maturing August 2024 ) (the “HEP Senior Notes”) are unsecured and impose certain restrictive covenants, including limitations on HEP’s ability to incur additional indebtedness, make investments, sell assets, incur certain liens, pay distributions, enter into transactions with affiliates, and enter into mergers. At any time when the HEP Senior Notes are rated investment grade by both Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s and no default or event of default exists, HEP will not be subject to many of the foregoing covenants. Additionally, HEP has certain redemption rights under the HEP Senior Notes.

In January 2017, HEP redeemed its $300 million aggregate principal amount of 6.5% senior notes maturing March 2020 at a redemption cost of $309.8 million , at which time HEP recognized a $12.2 million early extinguishment loss consisting of a $9.8 million debt redemption premium and unamortized discount and financing costs of $2.4 million . HEP funded the redemption with borrowings under the HEP Credit Agreement.

Indebtedness under the HEP Senior Notes is guaranteed by HEP’s wholly-owned subsidiaries. HEP’s creditors have no recourse to our assets. Furthermore, our creditors have no recourse to the assets of HEP and its consolidated subsidiaries.

NOTE 11: Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities

Commodity Price Risk Management
Our primary market risk is commodity price risk. We are exposed to market risks related to the volatility in crude oil and refined products, as well as volatility in the price of natural gas used in our refining operations. We periodically enter into derivative contracts in the form of commodity price swaps, forward purchase and sales and futures contracts to mitigate price exposure with respect to:
our inventory positions;
natural gas purchases;
costs of crude oil and related grade differentials;
prices of refined products; and
our refining margins.


20

HOLLYFRONTIER CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited) Continued



Accounting Hedges
We have swap contracts serving as cash flow hedges against price risk on forecasted purchases of natural gas. We also periodically have forward sales contracts that lock in the prices of future sales of crude oil and refined product and swap contracts serving as cash flow hedges against price risk on forecasted purchases of WTI crude oil and forecasted sales of refined product. These contracts have been designated as accounting hedges and are measured at fair value with offsetting adjustments (gains/losses) recorded directly to other comprehensive income. These fair value adjustments are later reclassified to earnings as the hedging instruments mature. On a quarterly basis, hedge ineffectiveness is measured by comparing the change in fair value of the swap contracts against the expected future cash inflows/outflows on the respective transaction being hedged. Any hedge ineffectiveness is also recognized in earnings.

The following table presents the pre-tax effect on other comprehensive income (“OCI”) and earnings due to fair value adjustments and maturities of commodity price swaps and forward sales under hedge accounting:

In 2013 , we dedesignated certain commodity price swaps (long positions) that previously received hedge accounting treatment. These contracts now serve as economic hedges against price risk on forecasted natural gas purchases totaling 4,800,000 MMBTU’s to be purchased ratably through 2017. As of June 30, 2017 , we have an unrealized loss of $0.5 million classified in accumulated other comprehensive income that relates to the application of hedge accounting prior to dedesignation that is amortized as a charge to operating expenses as the contracts mature.

Economic Hedges
We also have swap contracts that serve as economic hedges (derivatives used for risk management, but not designated as accounting hedges) to lock in basis spread differentials on forecasted purchases of crude oil and natural gas. Also, we have commodity forward contracts and NYMEX futures contracts to lock in prices on forecasted purchases of inventory. In addition, we had Canadian currency swap contracts that effectively fixed the conversion rate on $1.125 billion Canadian dollars (the PCLI purchase price), which were settled on February 1, 2017, in connection with the closing of the PCLI acquisition. These contracts are measured at fair value with offsetting adjustments (gains/losses) recorded directly to income.

The following table presents the pre-tax effect on income due to maturities and fair value adjustments of our economic hedges:

Interest Rate Risk Management
HEP uses interest rate swaps to manage its exposure to interest rate risk.

As of June 30, 2017 , HEP had two interest rate swap contracts with identical terms that hedge its exposure to the cash flow risk caused by the effects of LIBOR changes on $150.0 million in credit agreement advances. The swaps effectively convert $150.0 million of LIBOR based debt to fixed rate debt having an interest rate of 0.74% plus an applicable margin of 2.25% as of June 30, 2017 , which equaled an effective interest rate of 2.99% . Both of these swap contracts matured in July 2017 and have been designated as cash flow hedges. To date, there has been no ineffectiveness on these cash flow hedges.
