English Español Couche-Tard sells CrossAmerica Partners

Couche‑Tard has sold all of its ownership interest in CrossAmerica to investment entities controlled by Joe Topper, the founder of CrossAmerica, for an undisclosed amount.



Last update:

The CrossAmerica interests sold consist of 100% of the general partner interest, 100% of the incentive distribution rights and approximately 7.5 million CrossAmerica limited partner units.

Couche-Tard and CrossAmerica also announced today the signing of an additional asset exchange transaction agreement that will close in the coming months.

Following a strategic review, Couche-Tard decided to divest its entire ownership interest in CrossAmerica.

This new exchange includes a select portion of Couche-Tard’s U.S. dealer business and CrossAmerica’s ownership interest in CST Fuel Supply. Couche-Tard will transfer U.S. wholesale fuel supply contracts covering 387 sites and 45 fee and leasehold properties to CrossAmerica, and in exchange they will transfer its 17.5% limited partner interest ownership in CST Fuel Supply LP to Couche-Tard.

Couche-Tard will retain its dealer sites in California and those operated through its RDK joint venture as well as other strategic fuel wholesale assets across different parts of the country.

“The sale of our interest in CrossAmerica benefits both parties and allows each to focus on growing their core businesses. As we complete the remaining exchange of assets with CrossAmerica, we will continue to look for opportunities for future exchanges which create value for our shareholders and CrossAmerica’s unitholders,” Brian Hannasch, President and CEO of Couche-Tard.

Formed in 2012, CrossAmerica Partners LP is a distributor of branded and unbranded petroleum for motor vehicles in the United States and distributes fuel to approximately 1,300 locations and owns or leases over 1,000 sites.
