A company’s EV/FCF ratio measures its enterprise value (market cap adjusted for cash holdings and debt) against its free cash flow (how much money the company has after all of its cash outflows).

The debt-to-equity (D/E) ratio of Delek Logistics Partners LP has increased by 33.49% over the last year. That's not good.
