RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • We are on track to deliver on the key elements of our 2014 business plan
    • Second quarter 2014 results are in line with our 2014 distributable cash flow target
      • Adjusted EBITDA of $110 million is up 31 percent from second quarter 2013
      • Distributable cash flow of $93 million is up 37 percent from second quarter 2013
    • 15th consecutive quarterly distribution increase is in line with 2014 distribution growth target
  • Integrated the $1.15 billion dropdown completed in the first quarter, with Sand Hills and Southern Hills pipelines contributing to the second quarter 2014 results and ramping up as planned
  • Approved $160 million of predominantly fee-based organic projects during the second quarter, including
    • Sand Hills pipeline lateral lines extending the Partnership`s footprint into new areas of the Permian basin, with NGL take-away from both DCP Midstream and third party plants in Southeast New Mexico, the Delaware Basin and the Cline Shale of West Texas
    • Eagle Ford condensate handling, expanding capabilities at two Eagle Ford plants
    • Marysville liquids handling, improving the ability to receive and deliver NGL products via truck and rail
    • Chesapeake terminal upgrade for product export

CEO AND CHAIRMAN`S PERSPECTIVE

"Second quarter results and our fifteenth consecutive distribution increase were in line with our 2014 forecast," said Wouter van Kempen, CEO and chairman of the Partnership, and CEO, president and chairman of DCP Midstream. "We are well on our way to achieving our $500 million organic growth target for 2014 with the approval of $160 million of additional fee-based organic projects across all of our business segments. This includes organic opportunities facilitated by dropdowns which further expands the Partnership`s footprint into new areas of the Permian basin."

PRESIDENT`S PERSPECTIVE

"Strong volumes and NGL recoveries from our Eagle Ford system and growth from our NGL pipelines drove strong second quarter results," said Bill Waldheim, president of the Partnership. "We are very excited about the Sand Hills Red Lake Bluff and Lea County laterals. These are great organic growth projects that extend our reach into the Permian basin and will contribute to the ongoing ramp up of our NGL pipelines."

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 and the three months ended June 30, 2013 reflect DCP Midstream`s unhedged portion of its 67 percent and 20 percent ownership interests, respectively, in the Eagle Ford system.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2014 increased to $110 million from $84 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, reflecting higher volumes and improved NGL recoveries at our Eagle Ford system, higher fee revenue associated with volume growth from the operation of our fee-based O`Connor plant in our DJ Basin system, partially offset by lower volumes and turnaround activity across certain assets in our natural gas services segment. Additionally, we had higher results in our NGL logistics segment reflecting growth from the contribution of Sand Hills and Southern Hills pipelines, and lower unit margins in our wholesale propane logistics segment.

Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2014, increased to $248 million from $184 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013. These results reflect 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 in our DJ Basin system, partially offset by lower volumes and turnaround activity on certain assets in our natural gas services segment. Additionally, results reflect growth from the contribution of Sand Hills and Southern Hills pipelines, partially offset by lower customer inventory and related fees at our NGL storage facility and lower volumes at our Mont Belvieu fractionators in our NGL logistics segment, and lower unit margins in our wholesale propane logistics segment. Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2014 included a non-cash lower of cost or market price adjustment (LCM adjustment) in our wholesale propane logistics segment.

On July 28, 2014, the Partnership announced a quarterly distribution of $0.7575 per limited partner unit. This represents an increase of 1.7 percent over the last quarterly distribution and an increase of 6.7 percent over the distribution declared in the second quarter of 2013. Our distributable cash flow of $93 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014, provided a 0.9 times distribution coverage ratio adjusted for the timing of actual distributions paid during the quarter. The distribution coverage ratio adjusted for the timing of actual distributions paid during the last four quarters was approximately 1.1 times.

OPERATING RESULTS BY BUSINESS SEGMENT

Natural Gas Services - Adjusted segment EBITDA increased to $96 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014, from $77 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, reflecting higher volumes and improved NGL recoveries at our Eagle Ford system, higher fee revenue associated with volume growth from the operation of our fee-based O`Connor plant in our DJ Basin system, partially offset by lower volumes and turnaround activity across certain assets.

Adjusted segment EBITDA increased to $220 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 from $148 million for the six months ended June 30, 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 in our DJ Basin system, partially offset by lower volumes and turnaround activity across certain assets.

Results are shown using the pooling method of accounting, which include the results of the Lucerne 1 plant for the six months ended June 30, 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 six months ended June 30, 2013, and reflect the unhedged portion of the Eagle Ford system associated with DCP Midstream`s ownership interest.

NGL Logistics - Adjusted segment EBITDA increased to $32 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014, from $22 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, reflecting growth from the contribution of Sand Hills and Southern Hills pipelines.  Adjusted segment EBITDA increased to $49 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 from $45 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013. These results reflect growth from the contribution of Sand Hills and Southern Hills pipelines and increased throughput on certain of our NGL pipelines, partially offset by 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.

Wholesale Propane Logistics - Adjusted segment EBITDA decreased to a loss of $2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 from a gain of $1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, reflecting lower unit margins, partially offset by lower operating costs.

Adjusted segment EBITDA decreased to $11 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 from $23 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Results for the six months ended June 30, 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, however, we substantially recovered the LCM adjustment through the sale of inventory during the three months ended June 30, 2014. Results for the six months ended June 30, 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.

CORPORATE AND OTHER

Interest expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 increased primarily due to higher debt levels associated with the growth of our operations and lower capitalized interest due to assets placed into service.

CAPITALIZATION

At June 30, 2014, the Partnership had $2,310 million of long-term debt outstanding comprised of senior notes. We had no debt outstanding under our commercial paper program or revolving credit facility. Total available revolver capacity was $1,249 million. Our leverage ratio pursuant to our credit facility for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, was approximately 3.6 times. Our effective interest rate on our overall debt position, as of June 30, 2014, was 3.8 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 and six months ended June 30, 2014, commodity derivative activity and total revenues included non-cash losses of $30 million and $43 million. This compares to non-cash gains of $58 million and $48 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013. Net hedge cash settlements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, were receipts of $8 million and $6 million. Net hedge cash settlements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, were receipts of $13 million and $23 million.

DISTRIBUTION PAYMENT DATE

The Partnership`s quarterly distribution of $0.7575 per common unit for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 has a record date of August 8, 2014 and a payment date of August 14, 2014.  The Partnership`s press release dated July 28, 2014 incorrectly stated that the distribution payment date was August 15, 2014.

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.
