Slide 2

Cautionary Note Forward Looking Statements Certain statements and information in this presentation constitute "forward-looking statements." Certain expressions including “believe,” “expect,” “intends,” or other similar expressions are intended to identify the Partnership’s current expectations, opinions, views or beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effect on the Partnership. While management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable when made, there can be no assurance that future developments affecting the Partnership will be those that it anticipates. The forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties (some of which are beyond the Partnership’s control) and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from the Partnership’s historical experience and its present expectations or projections. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from forward-looking statements include but are not limited to: (i) adverse economic, capital markets and political conditions; (ii) changes in the market place for the Partnership’s services; (iii) changes in prices and supply and demand of crude oil and petroleum products; (iv) actions and performance of the Partnership’s customers, vendors or competitors; (v) nonrenewal, nonpayment or nonperformance by the Partnership’s customers and the Partnership’s ability to replace such contracts and/or customers; (vi) changes in the cost of or availability of capital; (vi) unanticipated capital expenditures in connection with the construction, repair or replacement of the Partnership’s assets; (viii) operating hazards, unforeseen weather events or matters beyond the Partnership’s control; (ix) inability to consummate acquisitions, pending or otherwise, on acceptable terms and successfully integrate acquired businesses into the Partnership’s operations; (x) effects of existing and future laws or governmental regulations; and (xi) litigation. Additional information concerning these and other factors that could cause the Partnership’s actual results to differ from projected results can be found in the Partnership’s public periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including the Partnership’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, as filed with the SEC on March 14, 2017 and any updates thereto in the Partnership’s subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and current reports on Forms 8-K. These factors are not necessarily all of the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any of the forward-looking statements contained herein. Other unknown or unpredictable factors could also have material adverse effects on the Partnership’s future results. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date thereof. The Partnership undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements after the date they are made, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. The Partnership does not, as a matter of course, disclose projections as to future operations, earnings or other results. However, the Partnership may include herein certain prospective financial information, including estimated EBITDA. To the extent prospective financial information is included herein, such information was not prepared with a view toward disclosure, but, in the view of the Partnership’s management, was prepared on a reasonable basis, reflects the best currently available estimates and judgments and presents, to the best of the Partnership’s knowledge and belief, the expected course of action and expected future financial performance of the Partnership’s assets. However, this information is not fact and should not be relied upon as being indicative of future results, and readers of this presentation are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the prospective financial information. Non-GAAP Financial Measures The Partnership defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest expense, income taxes and depreciation and amortization expense, as further adjusted for other non-cash charges and other charges that are not reflective of our ongoing operations. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that management and external users of the Partnership's consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, may use to assess (i) the performance of the Partnership's assets without regard to the impact of financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis of the Partnership's assets; (ii) the viability of capital expenditure projects and the overall rates of return on alternative investment opportunities; (iii) the Partnership's ability to make distributions; (iv) the Partnership's ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and (v) the Partnership's ability to incur additional expenses. The Partnership believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors in assessing its financial condition and results of operations. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA is net income. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income. Adjusted EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool because it excludes some but not all items that affect net income. Readers should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Partnership's results as reported under GAAP. Additionally, because Adjusted EBITDA may be defined differently by other companies in the Partnership's industry, its definitions of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility. Please see the reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA in slide 15 of this presentation.

The non-cash loss on revaluation of contingent consideration is related to the earn-out obligations incurred as a part of the Joliet terminal acquisition. The non-cash charges relate to deferred rent expense associated with the Portland, OR terminal lease transaction and non-cash compensation associated with the Partnership’s long-term incentive plan.
