As described in the IRS Form 8937, for U.S. tax purposes, the allocation of tax basis between shares of VLO common stock and CST common stock is based on their relative fair market values (FMV) at the time of the distribution. There are several possible methods to determine the FMV of VLO and CST common stock. Shareholders should consult with their tax advisors. One approach may be to use the unadjusted averages of the high and low trading prices of VLO and CST common stock on the New York Stock Exchange on the first day of regular-way trading after distribution. Such averages were $36.60 for VLO and $29.60 for CST on May 2, 2013. If this method is used, the pre-distribution tax basis in VLO shares would be allocated 91.75% to VLO shares and 8.25% to CST shares. See the example below which assumes pre-distribution tax basis of $30 per share in 100 shares of VLO common stock:

Where a Canadian shareholder of the share(s) of a foreign company receives a distribution of shares ("spin-off shares") from the company as a result of an eligible corporate reorganization ("spin-off"), section 86.1 of the federal Canadian Income Tax Act (the "Act") may permit such a spin-off share distribution to pass on a rollover basis (e.g., taxation of any gains is deferred) to the shareholder, provided the shareholder complies with certain filing requirements specified in section 86.1 of the Act.

This memo provides a basic overview of the election requirements pursuant to section 86.1 of the Act as they may apply to the May 1, 2013 Valero Energy Corporation spin-off of the shares of CST Brands, Inc., which has been approved by the Canada Revenue Agency (the "CRA") as eligible for Canadian federal income tax purposes, but offers no accounting or tax guidance, as a specialist should be consulted for those purposes.
