7-Eleven Announced the Acquisition of Speedway

Largest Acquisition in Sector History Increases 7-Eleven, Inc. Store Count to Approximately 14,000 Locations in the U.S. and Canada, Supporting Company’s Growth Strategy

Purchase Price Reflects a Pro Forma EBITDA Multiple of 7.1x, Including $475 Million to $575 Million in Run-rate Synergies, $3 Billion in Tax Benefits and Other Impacts

7-Eleven, Inc. (“7-Eleven”), the premier name and largest chain in the convenience-retailing industry, is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement to acquire Speedway, a leading convenience store chain, from Marathon Petroleum Corp. (NYSE: MPC). As part of the agreement, 7-Eleven will acquire approximately 3,900 Speedway stores located in 35 states, for $21 billion in cash.

“This acquisition is the largest in our company’s history and will allow us to continue to grow and diversify our presence in the U.S., particularly in the Midwest and East Coast,” said Joe DePinto, President and Chief Executive Officer of 7-Eleven. “By adding these quality locations to our portfolio, 7-Eleven will have the opportunity to bring convenience to more customers than ever before.”

Strategic and Financial Rationale

  • Accelerates 7-Eleven’s growth trajectory and diversifies presence in the U.S. Speedway and 7-Eleven have complementary geographic footprints with little overlap. 7-Eleven currently has over 9,800 stores in the United States and Canada and with Speedway’s high-quality portfolio of approximately 3,900 stores, this acquisition will bring 7-Eleven’s total number of stores to approximately 14,000 in the U.S. and Canada. Following the transaction, 7-Eleven will have a presence in 47 of the top 50 most populated metro areas in the U.S., positioning the company as a clear industry leader in a fragmented industry with favorable macroeconomic trends.
  • Strengthens financial profile to position company for continued success. Speedway, with annual pre-synergy run-rate EBITDA of approximately $1.5 billion prior to the acquisition, is an exceptional business with significant opportunities for future growth. 7-Eleven expects to achieve $475 million to $575 million of run-rate synergies through the third year following closing, while maintaining financial flexibility and a strong balance sheet. Upon closing, 7–Eleven will be even better positioned to continue to pursue profitable growth opportunities.
  • Combined store network significantly enhances economies of scale. Upon closing, 7-Eleven and Speedway will share best practices to deliver products and promotions based upon customer demand and continue both companies’ legacy of innovation. In addition, the combined company will be well-positioned to maximize efficiencies and optimize relationships with vendors and business partners.
  • Commitment to ensuring a successful integration. 7-Eleven plans to form an integration steering committee with representatives from the leadership of both 7–Eleven and Speedway. Brand 7-Eleven looks forward to welcoming the approximately 40,000 members of the Speedway team into the 7-Eleven family and integrating best practices of both companies.
  • Commitment to environmental stewardship.7-Eleven reaffirms and expands the company’s existing commitment to important environmental priorities as a part of its broader Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) efforts. Together, the combined company will set mutual and shared 2027 targets to reduce CO2 emissions, to utilize more ecofriendly packaging and sustainable food supplies, and to drive reduction in plastic usage. All of these measures will work together to enhance long-term corporate value.
  • Compelling financial impact. On a pro forma basis, the transaction reflects an attractive EBITDA multiple of 7.1x after taking into account expected impacts from the transaction, including $475 million to $575 million of run-rate synergies, $3 billion of tax benefits and $5 billion of net sale leaseback proceeds. The transaction is expected to produce compound annual growth in 7–Eleven’s operating income and EBITDA of over 15% through the first three years following the close of the acquisition. 7-Eleven expects to reduce its debt-to-EBITDA ratio to less than 3.0x within two years following the close of the acquisition.
