Sales and other revenues increased 10.2% YoY to $5.3 billion during the quarter. Net income attributable to HollyFrontier stockholders stood at $257 million, or $1.27 per diluted share, in Q2 2013, compared to net income attributable to HollyFrontier stockholders of $493.5 million, or $2.39 per diluted share, in Q2 2012. HollyFrontier also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a special cash dividend of $0.50 per share and a regular quarterly dividend of $0.30 per share. Mike Jennings, HollyFrontier's President and CEO, commented, "Narrowing refined product margins and reduced throughputs contributed to a year-over-year decline in second quarter earnings. Coastal to inland crude differentials contracted significantly during the quarter, reducing crack spreads for inland refiners. Additionally, production levels were down due to planned and unplanned maintenance activities at our Tulsa, El Dorado and Cheyenne refineries. Although refining margins have come in from last year's record highs, our margins remain healthy, and our outlook is positive. We believe that the favorable locations of our refineries relative to sources of crude oil production growth will continue to provide us with a feedstock advantage."
