CLOSED ON THE PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED $1.15 BILLION DROPDOWN

The Partnership closed the previously announced $1.15 billion immediately accretive dropdown from DCP Midstream, the owner of the Partnership`s general partner, which included the following:

  • A one-third interest in the 720-mile, fee-based Sand Hills natural gas liquids (NGL) pipeline.
  • A one-third interest in the 800-mile, fee-based Southern Hills NGL pipeline.
  • The remaining 20 percent interest in the Eagle Ford system, bringing the Partnership`s ownership interest to 100 percent.
  • Lucerne 1, a 35 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) cryogenic natural gas processing plant located in the prolific DJ Basin. 

BEGAN FUNDING THE $250 MILLION ORGANIC GROWTH PROJECT IN THE DJ BASIN

During the first quarter 2014, the Partnership also began funding construction work in progress of the Lucerne 2 plant, a 200 MMcf/d plant with an estimated cost of $250 million, which is currently under construction. Lucerne 2 will be a deep-cut cryogenic, natural gas processing plant in the rapidly expanding, liquids-rich DJ Basin that is part of the growing Niobrara shale formation. Once in service, the plant will include a 10-year fee-based processing agreement with DCP Midstream providing a fixed demand charge for 75 percent of capacity for Lucerne 1 and Lucerne 2, along with a throughput fee on all volumes processed at these plants. The Lucerne 2 plant is expected to be placed into service in mid 2015.

CEO AND CHAIRMAN`S PERSPECTIVE

"We`ve started out 2014 strong, completing a $1.15 billion immediately accretive dropdown, the largest dropdown in the Partnership`s history, and placing our Goliad plant, O`Connor plant expansion and Front Range pipeline all into service during the first quarter," said Wouter van Kempen, CEO and chairman of the Partnership, and CEO and chairman of DCP Midstream. "Executing on our growth for growth strategy as a DCP enterprise, we will continue to focus on being a premier operator, focused on safety, capital efficiency and delivering value to our customers and unitholders."

PRESIDENT`S PERSPECTIVE

"Strong volumes and recoveries from our Eagle Ford system drove record first quarter results in our Natural Gas Services segment and more than offset slightly lower results in our NGL Logistics and Wholesale Propane segments," said Bill Waldheim, president of the Partnership. "With the continued execution of our growth strategy, we are delivering on our plan as promised and are well positioned to deliver sustainable distribution growth and long-term value to our unitholders."

CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL RESULTS

Consolidated results are shown using the pooling method of accounting, which includes results associated with DCP Midstream`s ownership interests in the Eagle Ford system and Lucerne 1 plant during its periods of ownership. While the Partnership hedges the majority of its commodity risk, results for the three months ended March 31, 2013 reflect DCP Midstream`s unhedged portion of its 67 percent ownership interest in the Eagle Ford system.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2014 increased to $138 million from $100 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, reflecting a one-time favorable contractual producer settlement of $11 million, higher volumes and improved NGL recoveries at our Eagle Ford system, higher unit margins attributable to our Spindletop gas storage facility and higher fee revenue associated with volume growth from the operation of our fee-based O`Connor plant, partially offset by lower volumes on certain assets in our natural gas services segment, lower unit margins in our wholesale propane logistics segment and lower results in our NGL logistics segment due to lower customer inventory and related fees at our NGL storage facility and lower volumes at our Mont Belvieu fractionators. Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2014 included a $3 million non-cash lower of cost or market price adjustment (LCM adjustment) in our wholesale propane logistics segment.

On April 28, 2014, the Partnership announced a quarterly distribution of $0.745 per limited partner unit. This represents an increase of 1.7 percent over the last quarterly distribution and an increase of 6.4 percent over the distribution declared in the first quarter of 2013. Our distributable cash flow of $122 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, provided a 1.4 times distribution coverage ratio adjusted for the timing of actual distributions paid during the quarter.

OPERATING RESULTS BY BUSINESS SEGMENT

Natural Gas Services - Adjusted segment EBITDA increased to $124 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, from $71 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, reflecting a one-time favorable contractual producer settlement of $11 million, higher volumes and improved NGL recoveries at our Eagle Ford system, higher unit margins attributable to our Spindletop gas storage facility and higher fee revenue associated with volume growth from the operation of our fee-based O`Connor plant, partially offset by lower volumes on certain assets, primarily our Southeast Texas system.

Results are shown using the pooling method of accounting, which include the results of the Lucerne 1 plant for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, as if we owned the plant during those periods. Results also include the additional 47 percent of the Eagle Ford system for the three months ended March 31, 2013, and reflect the unhedged portion of the Eagle Ford system associated with DCP Midstream`s ownership interest.

NGL Logistics - Adjusted segment EBITDA decreased to $17 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, from $23 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, reflecting lower customer inventory and related fees at our NGL storage facility and lower volumes at our Mont Belvieu fractionators due to maintenance and unfavorable location pricing, offset by increased throughput on certain of our NGL pipelines.

Wholesale Propane Logistics - Adjusted segment EBITDA decreased to $13 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, from $22 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013. Results for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were stronger than normal due to higher unit margins associated with favorable hedging of 2012 inventories and higher propane sales volumes and unit margins related to the exporting of propane from our Chesapeake facility. Results for the three months ended March 31, 2014 reflect a $3 million non-cash LCM adjustment, lower unit margins primarily related to higher priced imported and domestic supply in excess of our base business and lower propane sales volumes.

CORPORATE AND OTHER

Interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2014 increased primarily due to higher debt levels and lower capitalized interest due to assets placed into service.

CAPITALIZATION

At March 31, 2014, the Partnership had $2,310 million of long-term debt outstanding comprised of senior notes and $21 million of short-term debt outstanding under our commercial paper program. Total available revolver capacity was $978 million. Our leverage ratio pursuant to our credit facility for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, was approximately 3.6 times. Our effective interest rate on our overall debt position, as of March 31, 2014, was 4.0 percent.

COMMODITY DERIVATIVE ACTIVITY

The objective of our commodity risk management program is to protect downside risk in our distributable cash flow. We utilize mark-to-market accounting treatment for our commodity derivative instruments. Mark-to-market accounting rules require companies to record currently in earnings the difference between their contracted future derivative settlement prices and the forward prices of the underlying commodities at the end of the accounting period. Revaluing our commodity derivative instruments based on futures pricing at the end of the period creates assets or liabilities and associated non-cash gains or losses. Realized gains or losses from cash settlement of the derivative contracts occur monthly as our physical commodity sales are realized or when we rebalance our portfolio. Non-cash gains or losses associated with the mark-to-market accounting treatment of our commodity derivative instruments do not affect our distributable cash flow.

For the three months ended March 31, 2014, commodity derivative activity and total revenues included non-cash losses of $13 million. This compares to non-cash losses of $10 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013. Net hedge cash settlements for the three months ended March 31, 2014, were payments of $2 million. Net hedge cash settlements for the three months ended March 31, 2013, were receipts of $10 million.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

This press release and the accompanying financial schedules include the following non-GAAP financial measures: distributable cash flow, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted segment EBITDA, adjusted net income attributable to partners, adjusted net income allocable to limited partners, and adjusted net income per limited partner unit. The accompanying schedules provide reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. The Partnership`s non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to its financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP, including operating revenues, net income or loss attributable to partners, net cash provided by or used in operating activities or any other measure of liquidity or financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP as a measure of operating performance, liquidity or ability to service debt obligations and make cash distributions to unitholders. The non-GAAP financial measures presented by us may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because they may not calculate their measures in the same manner.

We define distributable cash flow as net cash provided by or used in operating activities, less maintenance capital expenditures, net of reimbursable projects, plus or minus adjustments for non-cash mark-to-market of derivative instruments, proceeds from divestiture of assets, net income attributable to noncontrolling interests net of depreciation and income tax, net changes in operating assets and liabilities, and other adjustments to reconcile net cash provided by or used in operating activities. Historical distributable cash flow is calculated excluding the impact of retrospective adjustments related to any acquisitions presented under the pooling method. Maintenance capital expenditures are cash expenditures made to maintain our cash flows, operating or earnings capacity. These expenditures add on to or improve capital assets owned, including certain system integrity, compliance and safety improvements. Maintenance capital expenditures also include certain well connects, and may include the acquisition or construction of new capital assets. Non-cash mark-to-market of derivative instruments is considered to be non-cash for the purpose of computing distributable cash flow because settlement will not occur until future periods, and will be impacted by future changes in commodity prices and interest rates. Distributable cash flow is used as a supplemental liquidity and performance measure by the Partnership`s management and by external users of its financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others, to assess the Partnership`s ability to make cash distributions to its unitholders and its general partner.

We define adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss attributable to partners less interest income, noncontrolling interest in depreciation and income tax expense and non-cash commodity derivative gains, plus interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense and non-cash commodity derivative losses. The commodity derivative non-cash losses and gains result from the marking to market of certain financial derivatives used by us for risk management purposes that we do not account for under the hedge method of accounting. These non-cash losses or gains may or may not be realized in future periods when the derivative contracts are settled, due to fluctuating commodity prices. We define adjusted segment EBITDA for each segment as segment net income or loss attributable to partners less non-cash commodity derivative gains for that segment, plus depreciation and amortization expense and non-cash commodity derivative losses for that segment, adjusted for any noncontrolling interest on depreciation and amortization expense for that segment. The Partnership`s adjusted EBITDA equals the sum of its adjusted segment EBITDAs, plus general and administrative expense.

Adjusted EBITDA is used as a supplemental liquidity and performance measure and adjusted segment EBITDA is used as a supplemental performance measure by the Partnership`s management and by external users of its financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others to assess:
·           financial performance of the Partnership`s assets without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis;
·           the Partnership`s operating performance and return on capital as compared to those of other companies in the midstream energy industry, without regard to financing methods or capital structure;
·           viability and performance of acquisitions and capital expenditure projects and the overall rates of return on investment opportunities;
·           performance of the Partnership`s business excluding non-cash commodity derivative gains or losses; and
·           in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, the ability of the Partnership`s assets to generate cash sufficient to pay interest costs, support its indebtedness, make cash distributions to its unitholders and general partner, and finance maintenance capital expenditures.

We define adjusted net income attributable to partners as net income attributable to partners, plus non-cash derivative losses, less non-cash derivative gains. Adjusted net income per limited partner unit is then calculated from adjusted net income attributable to partners. These non-cash derivative losses and gains result from the marking to market of certain financial derivatives used by us for risk management purposes that we do not account for under the hedge method of accounting. Adjusted net income attributable to partners and adjusted net income per limited partner unit are provided to illustrate trends in income excluding these non-cash derivative losses or gains, which may or may not be realized in future periods when derivative contracts are settled, due to fluctuating commodity prices.
