    STRATEGY FOR VALUE CREATION Demonstrated Commitment to Stockholders Throughout its history, Valero has regarded disciplined capital management as a constant in its strategy, which remains intact. This starts with maintaining a strong balance sheet, with an investment-grade credit rating and a target debt-to-capital ratio of 20% to 30%. Valero ended 2019 on target, with a debt-to-capital ratio of 26%, based on total debt reduced by $2 billion of cash. Debt-to-capital ratio in 2019: 26% Net of $2 billion in cash 16

    We manage our capital outlays according to non- discretionary and discretionary spending. Our non-discretionary spending includes sustaining capital expenditures as well as the common stock dividend. We budget approximately $1.5 billion annually to sustain our operations, which is key to safety and reliability – primarily for turnaround maintenance, catalysts and regulatory compliance. And we target sustainable dividends, with a payout that is at the high end of our peer group.

We have the flexibility within our refining system to run different grades of crudes, and ranges within those grades, allowing us to effectively optimize our operations. Our portfolio, with key ports, also allows global optimization of product exports. Investments in Peru, Mexico and other areas are tapping growth markets, and product shortages in Latin America, Eastern Canada, Europe and Africa are expected to drive import demand growth as global economies recover.

    Growing the Renewable Fuels Business Valero is the largest renewable fuels producer in North America, and we continue to explore growth opportunities. All told, we have invested or committed more than $2.7 billion in renewable fuels – approximately $1.7 billion in ethanol and $1 billion for our share of our renewable diesel partnership. Our Diamond Green Diesel joint venture with Darling Ingredients Inc. produces renewable diesel fuel from recycled animal fats, used cooking oil and fuel-grade corn oil. Our renewable diesel fuel is fully compatible with existing engines and infrastructure, and is fueling demand in low-carbon markets. Valero and its joint venture partner are in an advanced engineering and development cost review for a potential new plant adjacent to the Port Arthur refinery. If the project is approved, Valero has invested operations could start in 2024, raising our annual renewable diesel production capacity to more than or committed 1.1 billion gallons. more than $2.7 billion in renewable fuels.
