PHILADELPHIA--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Sunoco, Inc. (NYSE: SUN) took another step today toward
the previously announced separation of its metallurgical cokemaking business from its other businesses with the filing
by its subsidiary, SunCoke Energy, Inc. (“SunCoke”), of a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange
Commission (“SEC”) for a proposed initial public offering of shares of SunCoke’s common stock. The number of
shares to be offered and the price range for the offering have not yet been determined.

The initial public offering is anticipated to be completed in 2011. At the completion of the proposed offering, Sunoco
will continue to own more than 80 percent of the outstanding common stock of SunCoke. Subsequent to the
completion of the proposed offering, Sunoco intends to distribute the balance of its SunCoke shares to Sunoco
shareholders by means of a spin-off that is intended to qualify as a tax-free transaction.

Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC will act as the lead book-running manager for the proposed offering. A copy of
the preliminary prospectus for the proposed offering may be obtained, when available, from: Credit Suisse Securities
(USA) LLC, Attn: Credit Suisse Prospectus Department, One Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10010, or by
phone at (800) 221-1037.

A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the SEC but has not yet become effective.
These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy these securities be accepted prior to the time the registration
statement becomes effective. This release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor
shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior
to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
