EnLink Midstream Reports First Quarter 2019 Results and Announces Accelerated, Capital-Efficient Growth in the Permian Basin

DALLAS, April 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- EnLink Midstream, LLC (ENLC) (EnLink or ENLC) reported financial results for the first quarter of 2019 and announced accelerated, capital-efficient growth plans in the Permian Basin. EnLink also updated and reaffirmed certain full-year 2019 company-level financial guidance measures.

First Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Reported a net loss solely due to a goodwill impairment resulting from the close of the corporate simplification transaction. Excluding the goodwill impact, net income was in line with expectations.
  • Delivered adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow, and distribution coverage results ahead of company and the Street expectations, driven by the company's diversified midstream platform and execution of highly accretive growth projects. Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are non-GAAP measures and are explained in greater detail under "Non-GAAP Financial Information and Certain Definitions."
  • Accelerated growth plans in the Permian's Delaware Basin with the planned construction of a new, 200 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) natural gas processing plant in response to increased production estimates by a key producer customer.
  • Signed two new commercial contracts for onloading natural gas processing volumes in the Permian's Midland Basin, which support the expansion of EnLink's Riptide facility by 65 MMcf/d, at a growth capital expenditure estimate of approximately $8 million.
  • Placed Cajun-Sibon III natural gas liquids (NGL) pipeline expansion and Lobo III natural gas processing plant expansion into service, in line with expectations.
  • Maintained estimated overall net company growth capital expenditures guidance in the range announced on February 19, 2019.
  • Declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.279 per unit on all outstanding common units, which represents approximately 6% growth from the prior quarter on an annualized basis.

"EnLink continues to execute well on our long-term strategic plan, and we are very pleased with the strong, diversified cash flows generated by our differentiated midstream platform," said Michael J. Garberding, EnLink President and Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to grow our strategic asset positions by putting highly efficient capital to work. Our long-term growth outlook remains robust, with an exciting runway of high-return projects to bring on line, and we remain committed to creating and returning value to our stakeholders with a focus on capital allocation."

First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

  • Reported a net loss of $176 million, which included the recognition of a $187 million non-cash charge related to goodwill that was created at the formation of EnLink in 2014. This non-cash charge occurred because of the simplification transaction that closed on January 25, 2019.
  • Achieved adjusted EBITDA net to ENLC of $268 million, which exceeded company and the Street expectations.
  • Reported net cash provided by operating activities of $264 million.
  • Achieved distributable cash flow of $185 million, which exceeded company and the Street expectations.
  • Distribution coverage was 1.35x, which exceeded company and the Street expectations.
  • Debt-to-adjusted EBITDA, as calculated under the terms of EnLink's credit facility, was 3.7x, in line with company expectations.
  • Growth capital expenditures, net to EnLink, were approximately $220 million, which was consistent with company expectations, as most major capital projects will be operational during the first half of the year.
  • As of April 25, 2019, ENLC had 487,170,379 common units outstanding.

Accelerated Growth in the Permian Basin and Related Asset Expansions

  • EnLink continues to have success with building scale in the Delaware Basin and is accelerating expectations for natural gas gathering and processing volume growth as a result of the company's longstanding relationship in the region with XTO, a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil. XTO is one of the most active operators in the Permian Basin, and its recent production estimates were significantly upgraded. EnLink now forecasts that its Lobo natural gas processing complex will near full utilization sooner than expected, with the need for additional capacity during 2020. EnLink plans to construct a new, 200 MMcf/d natural gas processing plant in the Delaware Basin, which is expected to be operational during 2020, to support XTO's incremental growth.
  • This project will be included in EnLink's Delaware Basin Joint Venture, of which EnLink owns a 50.1% interest. The project is forecasted to have an adjusted EBITDA return multiple in the 5-to-6 times range. Growth capital expenditures, net to EnLink, related to the plant expansion and related infrastructure are expected to be approximately $120 million, with approximately $60 million forecasted to be spent during 2019.
  • EnLink recently signed two contracts in the Midland Basin to onload additional natural gas processing volumes, commencing in the second quarter of 2019. These contracts underpin EnLink's low-cost expansion of its Riptide facility in the Midland Basin, which is expected to be operational during the fourth quarter of 2019. Riptide's current processing capacity of 100 MMcf/d will be expanded by 65 MMcf/d, for a total processing capacity of 165 MMcf/d once the expansion is complete. The growth capital expenditures associated with the expansion are expected to be approximately $8 million, with a highly accretive project adjusted EBITDA multiple forecasted to be in the 1-to-2 times range.

Full-Year 2019 Financial and Operational Guidance Update

  • EnLink reaffirms company-level financial 2019 guidance ranges presented in materials released on February 19, 2019, with an adjustment to reflect the impact of a non-cash goodwill charge associated with the recently closed corporate simplification transaction.
  • Net income is projected to range from $18 million to $28 million for full-year 2019, revised downward from the previous guidance range of $205 million to $215 million because of the recognition of a non-cash charge during the three months ended March 31, 2019, related to goodwill that was created at the formation of EnLink in 2014. This non-cash charge occurred because of the simplification transaction, which closed on January 25, 2019. Excluding the non-cash charge impact, net income expectations would be consistent with original guidance.
  • Growth capital expenditures, net to EnLink, continue to be projected to range from $565 million to $725 million. EnLink expects the net incremental growth capital expenditures in the Permian Basin related to new project announcements to be primarily offset by reduced growth capital expenditures in other segments.

First Quarter 2019 Segment Updates
Oklahoma:

  • EnLink's Oklahoma segment reported strong growth in segment profit year over year. Segment profit for the first quarter of 2019, as compared to the first quarter of 2018, increased by approximately 15%. All segment information for the first quarter of 2018 has been recast to conform to the presentation of the four operating segments, which became effective on January 1, 2019.
  • The Oklahoma segment also experienced natural gas volume growth year over year, with the first quarter of 2019 gas gathering, transportation, and processing volumes increasing over 15% from the first quarter of 2018.
  • Growth in average natural gas gathering, transportation, and processing volumes for 2019 full-year as compared to 2018 full-year actual results is forecasted to be in the range of 10% to 15%. A few of EnLink's key producer customers continue to transition and evolve their drilling and completion strategies, which has led EnLink to revise near-term volume growth expectations. EnLink remains confident in the STACK's position as a top tier growth play and the long-term growth profile of EnLink's leading asset platform in the basin.
  • Crude gathering volumes in the first quarter of 2019 also increased significantly year over year, over 200% from the first quarter 2018, due to the ramping of the company's crude gathering business in the STACK.
  • Construction of EnLink's previously announced Thunderbird processing plant is progressing well and remains on track to be operational during the second quarter of 2019. Once operational, Thunderbird will increase EnLink's gas processing capacity in Central Oklahoma by 200 MMcf/d, bringing EnLink's total gas processing capacity in the region to over 1.2 billion cubic feet per day. EnLink's ongoing development in Central Oklahoma reinforces its position as one of the largest and most cost-efficient providers of natural gas processing in the STACK. EnLink continues to work closely with its producer customers as they continue to transition towards full field development of their acreage in the STACK.

Permian Basin:

  • EnLink's Permian Basin segment reported strong segment profit growth during the first quarter of 2019, as compared to the first quarter of 2018, with segment profit increasing more than 100% year over year.
  • Natural gas volume activity also experienced solid growth during the first quarter of 2019, as compared to the first quarter of 2018, with average gathering, transportation, and processing volumes increasing more than 50% year over year.
  • Average crude gathering volumes continued to increase during the first quarter of 2019, as compared to the first quarter of 2018, with approximately 37% growth experienced year over year.

Louisiana:

  • Segment profit contribution from the Louisiana segment for the first quarter of 2019, as compared to the first quarter of 2018, was solid, as volume activity strengthened in most areas of operations.
  • The integrated NGL network continues to benefit from strong liquids output related to EnLink's growing STACK and Permian operations. Average NGL volumes on EnLink's system increased by approximately 10% in the first quarter of 2019, as compared to the first quarter of 2018.
  • Cajun-Sibon III went into service during the second quarter of 2019, expanding EnLink's ability to transport liquids from the Mont Belvieu NGL hub region to EnLink's fractionation facilities in Louisiana. Cajun-Sibon III expands EnLink's NGL transport capacity to approximately 185,000 barrels per day. The expansion is expected to generate an average annual adjusted EBITDA multiple of 2 to 3 times, with growth capital expenditures totaling approximately $50 million.
  • EnLink experienced solid natural gas volume activity on its Louisiana system during the first quarter of 2019, as compared to the first quarter of 2018, with natural gas processing volumes increasing by approximately 6% due to incremental opportunity processing events. Natural gas gathering and transportation volumes were down by approximately 7% during the first quarter of 2019, as compared to the first quarter of 2018, which was in line with expectations.
  • Average crude volumes handled in EnLink's Ohio River Valley operations increased during the first quarter of 2019, as compared to the first quarter of 2018, by approximately 25%, due to improved producer activity in the region.

North Texas:

  • Segment profit declined by approximately 16% for the first quarter of 2019, as compared to the first quarter of 2018, in line with company expectations, because of the expiration of minimum volume commitments with Devon Energy Corp. on December 31, 2018.
  • Average natural gas volume decline for the first quarter of 2019, as compared to the first quarter of 2018, was between 3% and 5% for gathering, transportation, and processing volumes.

Non-GAAP Financial Information and Other Definitions
This press release contains non-generally accepted accounting principles financial measures that we refer to as adjusted EBITDA, and distributable cash flow available to common unitholders (distributable cash flow). We define adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, impairments, unit-based compensation, (gain) loss on non-cash derivatives, (gain) loss on disposition of assets, (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt, successful transaction costs (if any), accretion expense associated with asset retirement obligations, non-cash rent, and distributions from unconsolidated affiliate investments less payments under onerous performance obligations, non-controlling interest, income (loss) from unconsolidated affiliate investments and non-cash revenue from contract restructuring. We define distributable cash flow as adjusted EBITDA (defined above, net to ENLC), less interest expense, interest rate swaps, current income taxes and other non-distributable cash flows, accrued cash distributions on EnLink Midstream Partners, LP's (ENLK) Series B Cumulative Convertible Preferred Units (the "ENLK Series B Preferred Units") and ENLK's Series C Fixed-to-Floating Rate Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Units (the "ENLK Series C Preferred Units") paid or expected to be paid, and maintenance capital expenditures, excluding maintenance capital expenditures that were contributed by other entities and relate to the non-controlling interest share of our consolidated entities.

Distribution coverage is calculated by dividing distributable cash flow by distributions declared to common unitholders.

Growth capital expenditures generally include capital expenditures made for acquisitions or capital improvements that we expect will increase our asset base, operating income or operating capacity over the long-term.  Maintenance capital expenditures generally include capital expenditures made to replace partially or fully depreciated assets in order to maintain the existing operating capacity of the assets and to extend their useful lives.

EnLink believes these measures are useful to investors because they may provide users of this financial information with meaningful comparisons between current results and previously-reported results and a meaningful measure of the company's cash flow after it has satisfied the capital and related requirements of its operations.  In addition, adjusted EBITDA achievement is a primary metric used in our short-term incentive program for compensating employees.

Segment profit (loss) is defined as operating income (loss) plus general and administrative expenses, depreciation and amortization, (gain) loss on disposition of assets, impairments, and (gain) loss on litigation settlement. Segment profit (loss) includes non-cash compensation expenses reflected in operating expenses. See "Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data - Note 15 - Segment Information" in ENLC's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, and, when available, "Item 1. Financial Statements - Note 14-Segment Information" in ENLC's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2019, for further information about segment profit (loss).

Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow, as defined above, are not measures of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP. They should not be considered in isolation or as an indicator of EnLink's performance. Furthermore, they should not be seen as a substitute for metrics prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of these measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in the following tables.  See ENLC's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission for more information.

(1)

Represents the forward-looking net income guidance for the year ended December 31, 2019 adjusted to include $187 million of non-cash impairment recognized in the first quarter of 2019. The forward-looking net income guidance excludes the potential impact of gains or losses on derivative activity, gains or losses on disposition of assets, impairment expense (other than the $187 million impairment recognized in the first quarter of 2019), gains or losses as a result of legal settlements, gains or losses on extinguishment of debt, and the financial effects of future acquisitions. The exclusion of these items is due to the uncertainty regarding the occurrence, timing and/or amount of these events.




EnLink does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking net cash provided by operating activities to adjusted EBITDA because the company is unable to predict with reasonable certainty changes in working capital, which may impact cash provided or used during the year.  Working capital includes accounts receivable, accounts payable and other current assets and liabilities. These items are uncertain and depend on various factors outside the company's control.

(2)
