Published on

Crestwood Equity Partners LP (NYSE:CEQP) (“Crestwood Equity” or “CEQP”) reported today its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Crestwood Equity owns the general partner of Crestwood Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:CMLP) (“Crestwood Midstream” or “CMLP”).

In a separate press release issued today, Crestwood Equity and Crestwood Midstream announced the execution of a definitive agreement to merge the two partnerships and simplify Crestwood’s corporate structure into a single publicly-traded partnership with a consolidated enterprise value of approximately $7.5 billion. Under the terms of the agreement, each common unitholder of Crestwood Midstream will receive 2.75 common units of Crestwood Equity upon closing of the transaction. Completion of the transaction is subject to the approval of Crestwood Midstream’s unitholders and customary closing conditions. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter 2015.

Additionally, in a separate press release issued today, Crestwood Midstream reported stand-alone financial and operating results. Except for the Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) supply and logistics assets, the operations reflected in the consolidated results reported herein are owned by Crestwood Midstream.

First Quarter 2015 Highlights

  • Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter 2015 was $141.9 million, a 22% increase, compared to $116.6 million in first quarter 2014
    • Assets owned by CMLP contributed Adjusted EBITDA of $124.7 million, a 26% increase, compared to $98.9 million in the first quarter 2014
    • Assets owned by CEQP contributed Adjusted EBITDA of $17.2 million, compared to $17.7 million in the first quarter 2014
  • Consolidated net income of $18.1 million for the first quarter 2015, a 37% increase, compared to net income of $13.2 million in the first quarter 2014
  • Crestwood Equity distributable cash flow of $21.4 million for the first quarter 2015, a 9% increase, compared to $19.7 million in the first quarter 2014
  • Crestwood Equity announced a first quarter cash distribution of $0.1375 per common unit, or $0.55 per common unit on an annualized basis, payable on May 15, 2015, to unitholders of record as of May 8, 2015

“The first quarter 2015 was another strong quarter for Crestwood Equity, on a consolidated basis, and a consistent quarter on a standalone basis. Having sold our Tres Palacios facility in the fourth quarter 2014, the current quarter highlights CEQP’s NGL platform on a standalone basis. After adjusting for Tres Palacios’ contribution in the first quarter 2014, the most recent quarter’s operational performance was relatively equivalent to the 2014 quarter, which was a record period for NGL demand and price volatility due to the historic cold weather experienced in the Northeast during the winter of 2013/14. These results highlight the value of our diversified NGL supply and logistics business that produces stable results even in markets with extreme price and volume volatility,” stated Robert G. Phillips, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Crestwood’s general partner.

“During the first quarter 2015, our NGL marketing volumes were higher than the same period last year, due to the increased supplies we market for producer and processing customers from the growing Marcellus and Utica rich gas regions. While our trucking volumes declined during the period due to a range of issues from weather to a temporary driver labor shortage, per unit margins for both our marketing and trucking businesses increased year-over-year. At our West Coast facility, we experienced lower throughput volumes as a result of supply disruptions at the Tesoro and Exxon West Coast refineries. The lower volumes were offset by slightly higher per unit margins, a trend we have experienced during the past couple of quarters. Based on solid operating results and a reduction in our debt balance due to the Tres Palacios sale, Crestwood Equity’s leverage ratio was approximately 3.25x with increased liquidity at the end of the first quarter 2015. Our confidence in the continued year-over-year growth of the NGL platform, enhanced balance sheet strength at CEQP and the improving distribution outlook at CMLP, supported the board’s decision to continue the current level of CEQP quarterly distribution at $0.1375 per common unit,” added Phillips.

Consolidated First Quarter 2015 Segment Results

Gathering and Processing segment EBITDA totaled $53.1 million in the first quarter 2015, a 15% increase, compared to $46.1 million in the first quarter 2014. During the first quarter 2015, average natural gas gathering volumes increased 10% to 1,241 million cubic feet per day (“MMcf/d”), processing volumes increased 7% to 203 MMcf/d and compression volumes continued to increase to a record 692 MMcf/d, up 54% over the first quarter 2014. The year-over-year increase in segment volumes was driven by facility expansions, new well connects and improving well performance in the Marcellus, Barnett Dry, and PRB Niobrara shale plays offset by a slight decrease in Barnett Rich volumes. All of the assets included in the gathering and processing segment are owned by CMLP.

Storage and Transportation segment EBITDA totaled $38.3 million compared to $38.0 million in the first quarter 2014. Segment EBITDA attributable to assets owned by CMLP was $38.5 million in the first quarter 2015, compared to $36.8 million in the first quarter 2014. On a consolidated basis, the increase was attributable to higher throughput on firm contracts and increased interruptible service volumes. At CMLP, storage and transportation volumes averaged 2,076 MMcf/d in the first quarter 2015, an 13% increase over the first quarter 2014, due to the contribution of Marcellus Dry pipeline capacity expansion projects completed in late 2014 and the first quarter 2015 and a full-quarter contribution from the Tres Palacios Gas Storage LLC joint venture, located on the Gulf Coast, which was formed in the fourth quarter 2014. Importantly, in the recent quarter, Crestwood’s Central New York Oil and Gas Company (“CNYOG”) storage and transportation assets showed strong customer utilization rates and margin contribution, when compared to the first quarter 2014, which was one of the coldest northeast US winter demand periods on record.

NGL and Crude Services segment EBITDA totaled $62.2 million, a 12% increase, compared to $55.7 million in the first quarter 2014. CMLP’s assets contributed segment EBITDA of $44.4 million in the first quarter 2015, a 69% increase, compared to $26.3 million in the first quarter 2014. CMLP segment growth was driven primarily by Crestwood’s Bakken shale operations which include the Arrow gathering system, acquired in November 2013, and the COLT Hub, which completed its latest facility expansion in the fourth quarter 2014. In the recent quarter, Arrow contributed $18.8 million compared to $8.9 million in the first quarter 2014 and the COLT Hub contributed $17.7 million, compared to $11.6 million in the first quarter 2014. During the first quarter 2015, Arrow crude, gas and water volumes increased 50%, 121% and 102% respectively, from the first quarter 2014. First quarter 2015 COLT Hub rail loading and pipeline volumes were up 25% and 58%, respectively, from the first quarter 2014. CEQP’s NGL and crude services assets contributed $17.8 million of segment EBITDA in the first quarter 2015, compared to $29.4 million in the first quarter 2014. First quarter 2014 segment EBITDA at CEQP included a $10.7 million non-cash gain from the change in the fair value of commodity inventory-related derivative contracts, compared to a $1.1 million loss in the first quarter 2015. Absent these changes in fair value, the EBITDA of these assets would be relatively flat year-over-year.

Corporate expenses, including general and administrative expenses and other income not allocated to the operating segments above, totaled $27.3 million in the first quarter 2015, compared with $27.8 million in the first quarter 2014.

Liquidity

As of March 31, 2015, debt outstanding was primarily composed of $2,150 million of fixed-rate senior notes issued by Crestwood Midstream and $308 million outstanding under Crestwood Equity’s revolving credit facility. In March 2015, Crestwood Midstream issued $700 million of 6.25% unsecured Senior Notes due 2023 in a private offering. The net proceeds from this offering were used to pay down borrowings under the Crestwood Midstream credit facility and for general corporate purposes. On April 8, 2015, Crestwood Midstream used the availability under its credit facility to redeem all outstanding 7.75% Senior Notes due 2019.

Cost Reduction Initiative Update

During the first quarter, Crestwood completed Phase 1 of its company-wide, cost savings initiatives consisting of operational and support function consolidation and a reduction in work force of approximately 10%. As a result, Crestwood reduced first quarter operating expenses and general and administrative expenses (excluding significant costs and unit-based compensation) by $2.8 million and $2.9 million between all Crestwood entities, respectively, from the fourth quarter 2014. Approximately $15 million of overall cost savings will be achieved in 2015, with a run-rate cost savings of $25 million to $30 million annually thereafter.

Distributable cash flow attributable to CEQP (e) $ 21.4 $ 19.7 $ 19.0
(a) EBITDA is defined as income before income taxes, plus net interest and debt expense, and depreciation, amortization and accretion expense. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA considers the adjusted earnings impact of our unconsolidated affiliates by adjusting our equity earnings or losses from our unconsolidated affiliates for our proportionate share of their depreciation and interest and the impact of certain significant items, such as unit-based compensation expenses, gains and impairments of long-lived assets and goodwill, gains and losses on acquisition-related contingencies, third party costs incurred related to potential and completed acquisitions, certain environmental remediation costs, change in fair value of certain commodity derivative contracts, certain costs related to our 2015 cost savings initiatives, and other transactions identified in a specific reporting period. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, as they do not include deductions for items such as depreciation, amortization and accretion, interest and income taxes, which are necessary to maintain our business. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income, operating cash flow or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA calculations may vary among entities, so our computation may not be comparable to measures used by other companies.
(b) Cash interest expense less amortization of deferred financing costs plus bond premium amortization plus or minus fair value adjustment of interest rate swaps.
(c) Maintenance capital expenditures are defined as those capital expenditures which do not increase operating capacity or revenues from existing levels.
(d) Crestwood Midstream distributable cash flow less incentive distributions paid to the general partner and the public LP ownership interest in Crestwood Midstream.
(e) Distributable cash flow is defined as Adjusted EBITDA, less cash interest expense, maintenance capital expenditures, income taxes, deficiency payments (primarily related to deferred revenue), and public Crestwood Midstream LP unitholders interest in CMLP distributable cash flow. Distributable cash flow should not be considered an alternative to cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles as those items are used to measure operating performance, liquidity, or the ability to service debt obligations. We believe that distributable cash flow provides additional information for evaluating our ability to declare and pay distributions to unitholders. Distributable cash flow, as we define it, may not be comparable to distributable cash flow or similarly titled measures used by other corporations and partnerships.
