Tesoro Secures Financing

SAN ANTONIO -- Tesoro Petroleum Corp., operator of approximately 100 convenience stores, said it plans a private debt offering of $450 million to help finance its purchase of a California refinery and retail outlets.

The company, which last month announced a public offering of 20 million share to help pay for the acquisitions from Valero Energy Corp., said the debt would be offered through senior subordinated notes.

San Antonio-based Tesoro is buying a 168,000-barrel per day refinery and 70 associated retail sites in northern California from Valero for about $1.125 billion.
