CNX Midstream Reports Second Quarter Results

PITTSBURGH, Aug. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CNX Midstream Partners LP (NYSE: CNXM) ("CNXM", "CNX Midstream" or the "Partnership") today reported financial and operational results for the three months ended June 30, 2018(1).

Second Quarter Results

Highlights of second quarter 2018 results attributable to the Partnership as compared to the second quarter of 2017 include:

  • Net Income Attributable to General and Limited Partner Ownership Interest in CNXM of $30.0 million as compared to $29.0 million
  • Net cash provided by operating activities of $53.7 million as compared to $42.3 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) of $41.3 million as compared to $34.4 million
  • Distributable cash flow (DCF)(2) of $31.6 million as compared to $29.6 million
  • Cash distribution coverage(2) of 1.31x on an as-declared basis

"CNXM delivered strong results for the second quarter," commented Nicholas J. DeIuliis, CEO of CNX Midstream GP LLC (the "General Partner"). "In addition to steady operational execution, we closed on the previously announced transaction with our Sponsor and HG Energy, which resulted in additional dedicated Utica acres in the Anchor Systems; increased minimum well commitments from our Sponsor and HG Energy; the contribution of a 20" high-pressure pipeline; and $2.0 million in cash. This transaction, which also included amending the gas gathering agreements with our Sponsor and HG Energy that resulted in more operational and strategic control, further de-risked the 15% distribution growth target through 2023."

Operations

During the quarter, CNXM continued to set new milestones in operational excellence and cost reductions. The CNXM team achieved one million man hours with zero lost time and zero injuries. At the same time, the Partnership experienced its highest-ever quarterly throughput of 1,208 Bbtu/d and lowest-ever gross unit operating cost. The reduction in operating costs is the result of continued initiatives to reduce contract workforce, leverage automation, and minimize lost time.

The Partnership expects its 2018 capital expenditures range to increase to approximately $100-$110 million, compared to the previous guidance of $80-$90 million, due primarily to the acceleration of activity from 2019 into 2018 and adding new high rate of return projects.

The distribution payment will be made on August 14, 2018 to unitholders of record at the close of business on August 7, 2018. The distribution, which equates to an annual rate of $1.3444 per unit, represents an increase of 3.6% over the prior quarter and an increase of 15% over the distribution paid with respect to the second quarter of 2017.

Capital Investment and Resources

CNX Midstream's allocated second quarter 2018 share of investment in expansion projects was $20.4 million. Total expansion capital investment at the development companies in which CNX Midstream holds controlling interests was $20.9 million. CNX Midstream's respective share of maintenance capital expenditures for the development companies for second quarter 2018 was $4.1 million. Maintenance capital expenditures in the aggregate for the development companies in which CNX Midstream holds controlling interests totaled $4.7 million.

As of June 30, 2018, CNX Midstream had outstanding borrowings of $11 million under its $600 million revolving credit facility.

Unless otherwise indicated, the reporting measures included in this news release reflect the unallocated total activity of the three development companies that have been jointly owned by the Partnership and CNX Gathering LLC ("CNX Gathering") since completion of the Partnership's initial public offering ("IPO") in September 2014. Effective November 16, 2016, the Partnership acquired the remaining 25% controlling interest in the Anchor Systems, which brought its controlling interest in that system to 100%. In connection with the transaction with HG Energy, the Partnership agreed to relinquish its 5% interest in the Growth System to CNX Gathering. The Partnership's current financial interests in the development companies are: 100% in the Anchor Systems and 5% in the Additional Systems. Because the Partnership owns a controlling interest in each of these development companies, it fully consolidates their financial results. CNX Gathering is an entity 100% owned by CNX Resources Corporation that owns a noncontrolling interests in the Additional Systems and a controlling interest in the Growth Systems of the Partnership.

This press release is intended to be a qualified notice to nominees as provided for under Treasury Regulation Section 1.1446-4(b). Brokers and nominees should treat one hundred percent (100.0%) of CNX Midstream's distributions to non-U.S. investors as being attributed to income that is effectively connected with a United States trade or business.  Accordingly, CNX Midstream's distributions to non-U.S. investors are subject to federal income tax withholding at the highest applicable effective tax rate.  Nominees, and not CNX Midstream, are treated as withholding agents responsible for withholding on the distributions received by them on behalf of foreign investors.

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws.  Statements that are predictive in nature, that depend upon or refer to future events or conditions or that include the words "will," "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "estimate" and other expressions that are predictions of or indicate future events and trends and that do not relate to historical matters identify forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements include, among others, statements regarding the payment of our quarterly distribution for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 and our anticipated 2018 financial performance.  Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict, and there can be no assurance that actual outcomes and results will not differ materially from those expected by our management.  You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Although forward-looking statements reflect our good faith beliefs at the time they are made, they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors.  While our management considers these expectations and assumptions to be reasonable, they are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, regulatory and other risks, contingencies and uncertainties, most of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. These risks, contingencies and uncertainties relate to, among other matters, the following: CNX and HG Energy II Appalachia, LLC currently account for substantially all of our revenue; if either or both of them change their business strategies, or otherwise significantly reduce the volumes of natural gas and condensate transported through our gathering systems, we could be materially and adversely affected; under our gathering agreements, our customers may transfer their leasehold, working and mineral fee interests in their dedicated acreage, and provide for the release of dedicated acreage in certain situations; we may not generate sufficient distributable cash flow to make the payment of the minimum quarterly distribution to our unitholders; our cash flow will depend entirely on the performance of our operating subsidiaries and their ability to distribute cash to us; our midstream systems are exclusively located in the Appalachian Basin, making us vulnerable to risks associated with operating in a single geographic area; we may be unable to grow by acquiring the noncontrolling interests in, or assets of, our operating subsidiaries owned by CNX Gathering, which could limit our ability to increase our distributable cash flow; to maintain and grow our business, we will be required to make substantial capital expenditures and these capital expenditures may not result in revenue increases and may be subject to regulatory, environmental, political, legal and economic risks, which could adversely affect our business and our ability to distribute cash to our unitholders; if we are unable to obtain needed capital or financing on satisfactory terms, our ability to make cash distributions may be diminished or our financial leverage could increase; our exposure to commodity price risk may change over time and we cannot guarantee the terms of any existing or future agreements for our midstream services with third parties or with CNX; restrictions in our revolving credit facility, and other debt agreements that we may enter into in the future, could adversely affect our business, financial condition, liquidity and results of operations, and ability to make quarterly cash distributions to our unitholders; we and our customers may incur significant liability under, or costs and expenditures to comply with, environmental and worker health and safety regulations, which are complex and subject to frequent change; we may not own in fee the land on which our pipelines and facilities are located, which could result in disruptions to our operations; a shortage of equipment and skilled labor could reduce equipment availability and labor productivity and increase labor and equipment costs, which could have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations; we do not have any officers or employees and rely on officers of our general partner and employees of CNX; terrorist attacks or cyber-attacks could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations; our general partner and its affiliates, including CNX, have conflicts of interest with us and limited fiduciary duties to us and our unitholders, and they may favor their own interests to our detriment and that of our unitholders; our general partner's discretion in establishing cash reserves may reduce the amount of cash we have available to distribute to unitholders; affiliates of our general partner, including CNX and CNX Gathering, may compete with us, and neither our general partner nor its affiliates have any obligation to present business opportunities to us except with respect to rights of first offer contained in our omnibus agreement; our tax treatment depends on our status as a partnership for federal income tax purposes; as a result of investing in our common units, you may become subject to state and local taxes and return filing requirements in jurisdictions where we operate or own or acquire properties.

Although forward-looking statements reflect our good faith beliefs at the time they are made, they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors.  For more information concerning factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those conveyed in the forward-looking statements, including, among others, that our business plans may change as circumstances warrant, please refer to the "Risk Factors" and "Forward-Looking Statements" sections of our Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.  We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events, changed circumstances or otherwise, unless required by law.

CNX MIDSTREAM PARTNERS LP
RECONCILIATION OF NET INCOME TO ADJUSTED EBITDA AND DISTRIBUTABLE CASH FLOW
(in thousands)

Definition of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

We define EBITDA as net income (loss) before net interest expense, depreciation and amortization, and Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted for non-cash items which should not be included in the calculation of distributable cash flow. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used as supplemental financial measures by management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, industry analysts, lenders and ratings agencies, to assess:

  • our operating performance as compared to those of other companies in the midstream energy industry, without regard to financing methods, historical cost basis or capital structure;
  • the ability of our assets to generate sufficient cash flow to make distributions to our partners;
  • our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and
  • the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects and the returns on investment of various investment opportunities.

We believe that the presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provides information that is useful to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are net income and net cash provided by operating activities. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered alternatives to net income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP.  EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income or net cash, and these measures may vary from those of other companies. As a result, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as presented below may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Distributable Cash Flow

We define distributable cash flow as Adjusted EBITDA less net income attributable to noncontrolling interest, cash interest paid and maintenance capital expenditures, each net to the Partnership. Distributable cash flow does not reflect changes in working capital balances.

Distributable cash flow is used as a supplemental financial measure by management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, industry analysts, lenders and ratings agencies, to assess:

  • the ability of our assets to generate cash sufficient to support our indebtedness and make future cash distributions to our unitholders; and
  • the attractiveness of capital projects and acquisitions and the overall rates of return on alternative investment opportunities.

We believe that the presentation of distributable cash flow in this release provides information useful to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to distributable cash flow are net income and net cash provided by operating activities. Distributable cash flow should not be considered an alternative to net income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Distributable cash flow excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income or net cash, and these measures may vary from those of other companies. As a result, our distributable cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures that other companies may use.

The following table presents a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures of adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures of net income and net cash provided by operating activities.

The following table presents a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures of the Partnership's projected adjusted EBITDA and projected distributable cash flow with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, which is projected net income. The following projections represent the approximate midpoint of the announced full year 2018 expected guidance ranges of adjusted EBITDA ($150-$165 million) and full year distributable cash flow ($120-$135 million) attributable to the Partnership. CNX Midstream's financial guidance is based on numerous assumptions about future events and conditions and, therefore, could vary materially from actual results.  These estimates are meant to provide guidance only and are subject to revision for acquisitions or operating environment changes.

The Partnership is unable to project net cash provided by operating activities or provide the related reconciliation of projected net cash provided by operating activities to projected distributable cash flow, the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, because net cash provided by operating activities includes the impact of changes in operating assets and liabilities. Changes in operating assets and liabilities relate to the timing of the Partnership's cash receipts and disbursements that may not relate to the period in which the operating activities occurred, and the Partnership is unable to project these timing differences with any reasonable degree of accuracy.
