Highlights:

  • Provided an update from Davis on observations since his return to the CEO role in early August 2019 and provided an execution plan to respond to changing market conditions. The plan in aggregate is expected to result in up to $75 million of cost reductions, margin enhancements, and commercial wins during 2020. A number of initiatives are already underway, which will generate significant positive results in the near term.
  • Announced expectation for full-year 2019 growth capital expenditures, net to EnLink, to be at the low end of the previously announced guidance range of $630 million to $710 million.
  • Outlined forecast for full-year 2020 growth capital expenditures, net to EnLink, of $275 million to $375 million. This forecast represents an approximate 50% decrease as compared to the projected full-year 2019 growth capital expenditures of around $630 million.
  • Announced further commercial success in Louisiana with the signing of a new long-term natural gas purchase agreement at attractive rates. Under the terms of the agreement, EnLink will utilize its existing assets to transport natural gas from northern Louisiana to Gulf Coast demand markets with no incremental capital expenditures.
  • Placed into service the 65 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) Riptide natural gas processing plant expansion in the Permian Basin in late September 2019, bringing total processing capacity in the Permian Basin to over 800 MMcf/d.
  • Previously declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.283 per unit on all outstanding common units for the third quarter of 2019, which was the same as the declared distribution for the second quarter of 2019.

"EnLink's third quarter performance demonstrates the strength of our large-scale diversified platform, and the flexibility of our operations in the midst of a changing operating environment," Davis said. "We expect growth in the fourth quarter, as compared to the third quarter, and are forecasting 2019 adjusted EBITDA to be at the low end of our guidance range. EnLink remains in a solid competitive position, and we are taking decisive actions to enhance the profitability of our existing business, position ourselves to capture long-term opportunities, strengthen our financial position, and drive organizational efficiency throughout the company."

Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow used in this press release are non-GAAP measures and are explained in greater detail under "Non-GAAP Financial Information and Other Definitions" below.

Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results and 2019 Full-Year Guidance Update

  • Achieved adjusted EBITDA net to EnLink of $261.2 million for the third quarter of 2019. Adjusted EBITDA for full-year 2019 is expected to be at the low end of the previously announced guidance range of $1.07 billion to $1.1 billion.
  • Reported net cash provided by operating activities of $256.0 million for the third quarter of 2019.
  • Achieved distributable cash flow (DCF) of $168.2 million for the third quarter of 2019. DCF for full-year 2019 is expected to be at the low end of the previously announced guidance range of $715 million to $735 million.
  • Distribution coverage was 1.21x for the third quarter of 2019. Distribution coverage for full-year 2019 is expected to be at the low end of the previously announced guidance range of 1.3x to 1.5x.

  • Debt-to-adjusted EBITDA, as calculated under the terms of EnLink's credit facility, was 4.2x for the third quarter of 2019. EnLink expects debt-to-adjusted EBITDA for full-year 2019 to be around the high-end of the previously announced guidance range of 3.9x to 4.2x.
  • As of November 4, 2019, EnLink had 487,612,888 common units outstanding.

Third Quarter 2019 Segment Updates
Permian Basin:

  • Segment profit of $36.3 million for the third quarter of 2019 was approximately 9% higher as compared to the second quarter of 2019 and approximately 6% lower as compared to the third quarter of 2018. Third quarter 2019 segment profit was muted as compared to the prior quarter and the same period during 2018 due in part to a reduction in average crude gathering volumes.
  • Average natural gas gathering and transportation volumes for the third quarter of 2019 were approximately 11% higher as compared to the second quarter of 2019 and approximately 35% higher as compared to the third quarter of 2018. Average natural gas processing volumes for the third quarter of 2019 increased approximately 10% and 40% as compared to the second quarter of 2019 and the third quarter of 2018, respectively.
  • Average crude gathering volumes decreased by approximately 22% for the third quarter of 2019 as compared to the second quarter of 2019 and declined approximately 14% as compared to the third quarter of 2018, driven primarily by lower crude first-purchase volumes.
  • The previously announced 65 MMcf/d expansion of the Riptide natural gas processing facility in the Midland Basin became operational in late September 2019, which supports volume growth in the company's Midland Basin footprint.
  • The Tiger natural gas processing plant construction in the Delaware Basin is progressing well and is expected to become operational during the second half of 2020, as planned. Once operational, the 200 MMcf/d Tiger plant will bring total EnLink processing capacity to over 1 billion cubic feet per day in the Permian.

Louisiana:

  • Segment profit of $67.0 million for the third quarter of 2019 was approximately 3% higher as compared to the second quarter of 2019 and roughly flat as compared to the third quarter of 2018. Third quarter 2019 segment profit as compared to the prior quarter and the same period during 2018 includes the expiration of legacy natural gas transportation contracts and less favorable economics for natural gas processing.
  • Average natural gas liquids (NGL) fractionation volumes for the third quarter of 2019 were approximately 3% lower as compared to the second quarter of 2019, due to a lower ethane composition in the average barrel from increased industry ethane rejection. Average NGL fractionation volumes for the third quarter of 2019 increased by approximately 10% as compared to the third quarter of 2018 as a result of the Cajun-Sibon III expansion being placed into service during the second quarter of 2019.
  • Average natural gas gathering and transportation volumes for the third quarter of 2019 were approximately 8% higher as compared to the second quarter of 2019 and approximately 9% lower as compared to the third quarter of 2018. Average natural gas processing volumes for the third quarter of 2019 increased approximately 15% and decreased 10% as compared to the second quarter of 2019 and the third quarter of 2018, respectively.
  • EnLink announced commercial success related to the signing of a long-term natural gas purchase agreement at attractive rates. EnLink will utilize its existing assets to transport natural gas from northern Louisiana to Gulf Coast demand markets, with no incremental capital expenditures.
  • Average crude volumes handled in EnLink's Ohio River Valley operations for the third quarter of 2019 were approximately 5% higher as compared to the second quarter of 2019 and increased by 24% as compared to the third quarter of 2018.

Oklahoma:

  • Segment profit of $109.1 million for the third quarter of 2019 was approximately 4% lower as compared to the second quarter of 2019 and roughly flat as compared to the third quarter of 2018. Third quarter 2019 segment profit as compared to the prior quarter and the same period during 2018 reflects the current commodity price environment and its impact on fixed recovery contracts.
  • Average natural gas gathering and transportation volumes for the third quarter of 2019 were approximately 3% higher as compared to the second quarter of 2019 and approximately 7% higher as compared to the third quarter of 2018. Average natural gas processing volumes for the third quarter of 2019 increased approximately 2% and 7% when compared to the second quarter of 2019 and the third quarter of 2018, respectively.
  • Average crude gathering volumes in the third quarter of 2019 increased quarter over quarter and year over year. Crude gathering volumes for the third quarter of 2019 were approximately 10% higher as compared to the second quarter of 2019 and approximately 250% higher as compared to the third quarter of 2018 due to the continued ramp of crude gathering services.

North Texas:

  • Segment profit of $69.4 million for the third quarter of 2019 was approximately 5% lower as compared to the second quarter of 2019, driven primarily by contract mix changes. Segment profit for the third quarter of 2019 was approximately 27% lower as compared to the third quarter of 2018, driven by the expiration of minimum volume commitments (MVC) with Devon Energy Corp. on December 31, 2018. $22.1 million of MVC payments were included in the third quarter of 2018 results.
  • Average natural gas gathering, transportation, and processing volumes for the third quarter of 2019 were roughly flat, as compared to the second quarter of 2019. Average natural gas gathering and transportation, and processing volumes for the third quarter of 2019 were approximately 4% lower and 2% higher as compared to the third quarter of 2018, respectively.

CEO Action Plan
Upon returning to the CEO role in early August 2019, Davis immediately began a comprehensive evaluation of EnLink's business strengths and opportunities in the context of the current evolving energy landscape, in which pressured commodity prices and lower capital spending by producers are reducing activity levels in U.S. supply basins, particularly in Oklahoma.

In terms of strengths, Davis highlighted EnLink's solid financial profile and diversified assets that position the company well for stable cash flow generation and for targeted, attractive growth opportunities. The company is generating strong cash flow - in excess of $1 billion of annual adjusted EBITDA - from its diversified portfolio of assets. The company's strategic growth assets located in the Permian Basin and along the Gulf Coast create opportunities for future growth, and EnLink's leading, scale positions in Oklahoma and North Texas continue to generate significant cash flow and are positioned to benefit from ongoing optimization.

From an opportunities standpoint, Davis and EnLink's executive leadership team have outlined key execution priorities:

  • Enhance the profitability of EnLink's existing business: Enhance margins by filling available asset capacity, optimize operating efficiency, and capitalize on opportunities to expand business with customers.
  • Position EnLink to capture long-term opportunities: Pursue attractive bolt-on opportunities in response to customer needs; expand market share by leveraging leading platform positions in key supply and demand markets.
  • Strengthen EnLink's financial position: Execute rigorous capital allocation process, grow free cash flow, and maintain a strong balance sheet.
  • Drive organizational efficiency: Optimize costs and efficiencies companywide and maintain a high level of customer service and safety.

The team has initially identified meaningful opportunities within each priority and expects the execution of the plan will result in aggregate cost reductions, margin enhancements, and commercial wins of up to $75 million for 2020. A number of initiatives are already underway, which will generate significant positive results in the near-term.

2020 Capital Expenditures Outlook

  • Growth capital expenditures, net to EnLink, for full-year 2020 are projected to range from $275 million to $375 million, representing an approximate 50% decline as compared to the growth capital expenditures expected for full-year 2019.
  • EnLink's 2020 growth projects are expected to be focused in the Permian Basin, representing up to 75% of expected investment, with longer-dated opportunities under evaluation along the Gulf Coast.
  • The majority of 2020 growth capital expenditures are forecasted to be well connects, gathering lines and compression additions. Approximately $60 million to $80 million of 2020 growth capital expenditures will be invested in the Tiger plant and associated infrastructure construction in the Delaware Basin, for which the full adjusted EBITDA contribution will be recognized in 2021.

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 net interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization expense, impairments, unit-based compensation, (gain) loss on non-cash derivatives, (gain) loss on disposition of assets, loss on secured term loan receivable, successful transaction costs (if any), accretion expense associated with asset retirement obligations, and distributions from unconsolidated affiliate investments less payments under onerous performance obligations, non-controlling interest, income (loss) from unconsolidated affiliate investments, non-cash rent, 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 loss on secured term loan receivable. 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 and nine months ended September 30, 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.

For a reconciliation of full-year 2019 adjusted EBITDA and DCF guidance discussed in this press release to 2019 net income (loss) guidance, see the revised forward-looking reconciliation in our earnings press release for the second quarter of 2019, issued on August 6, 2019, and also included as an exhibit to ENLC's Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 6, 2019, both of which are available on the Investors' page of EnLink's website at EnLink.com.

____________________________

(1)

In May 2018, we restructured our natural gas gathering and processing contract with White Star, and, as a result, recognized non-cash revenue representing the discounted present value of a secured term loan receivable granted to us by White Star. In late May 2019, White Star, the counterparty to our $58.0 million second lien secured term loan receivable, defaulted on its approximately $10 million installment payment under the term loan and filed for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. We do not believe that it is probable that White Star will be able to repay the outstanding amounts owed to us under the second lien secured term loan.

(2)

Represents transaction costs primarily attributable to costs incurred related to the acquisition of all outstanding, publicly-held ENLK common units in January 2019 and costs we incurred related to the acquisition by GIP of equity interests in ENLK, ENLC, and the managing member of ENLC previously held by subsidiaries of Devon Energy Corporation (the "GIP Transaction") in July 2018.

(3)

Includes accretion expense associated with asset retirement obligations and non-cash rent, which relates to lease incentives pro-rated over the lease term.  

(4)

Non-controlling interest share of adjusted EBITDA from joint ventures includes NGP Natural Resources XI, L.P.'s ("NGP") 49.9% share of adjusted EBITDA from the Delaware Basin JV, Marathon Petroleum Corporation's 50% share of adjusted EBITDA from the Ascension JV, and other minor non-controlling interests.

(4)

Net of payments under onerous performance obligation offset to other current and long-term liabilities.

(5)

Non-controlling interest share of adjusted EBITDA from joint ventures includes NGP's 49.9% share of adjusted EBITDA from the Delaware Basin JV, Marathon Petroleum Corporation's 50% share of adjusted EBITDA from the Ascension JV, and other minor non-controlling interests. 

(6)

Excludes maintenance capital expenditures that were contributed by other entities and relate to the non-controlling interest share of our consolidated entities.

(7)

Represents the cash distributions earned by the ENLK Series B Preferred Units and ENLK Series C Preferred Units of $17.1 million and $6.0 million, respectively, for the three months ended September 30, 2019, and cash distributions earned by the ENLK Series B Preferred Units and ENLK Series C Preferred Units of $50.9 million and $18.0 million, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Cash distributions to be paid to holders of the ENLK Series B Preferred Units and ENLK Series C Preferred Units are not available to common unitholders.

Distributable cash flow is not presented for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, because distributable cash flow was not used as a supplemental liquidity measure by ENLC during 2018. ENLC began using distributable cash flow as a supplemental liquidity measure in 2019 as a result of the simplification of our corporate structure in the Merger.
