Earnings Highlights and Summary

Cheniere Energy's total revenues reached $2.24 billion in Q1 FY18, reflecting an increase of 85.14% from $1.21 billion in Q1 FY17, led by a robust liquefied natural gas (LNG) market and superior execution throughout the Company. The Company's revenue numbers exceeded analysts' consensus estimates by $620 million. For the quarter under review, the Company's LNG core revenues advanced 89.50% to $2.17 billion on a y-o-y basis, while its regasification revenues remained unchanged at $65 million.

During Q1 FY18, Cheniere Energy incurred total operating costs and expenses of $1.50 billion, 79.04% higher than $835 million in Q1 FY17. The Company's cost of sales, excluding depreciation and amortization, advanced 88.78% to $1.18 billion on a y-o-y basis in the reported quarter from $624 million in the previous year's same quarter. Cheniere Energy incurred operating and maintenance expenses of $140 million and selling, general, and administrative expenses (SG&A) of $67 million in Q1 FY18.

Cheniere Energy's income from operations jumped 98.67% to $747 million in the quarter under review from $376 million in the prior year's comparable quarter. This included depreciation and amortization expenses, loss from changes in fair value of commodity and FX derivatives, and non-cash compensation expenses. Excluding these items, the Company had consolidated adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) of $907 million in Q1 FY18, 87.78% higher than $483 million in Q1 FY17.

Cheniere Energy's net income attributable to common stockholders was $357 million in Q1 FY18, up 561.11% from $54 million in Q1 FY17. The Company's diluted earnings per share (EPS) also rose 552.17% to $1.50 in the reported quarter from $0.23 in the year ago corresponding quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates by $1.03. The increase in net income was primarily due to an increased income from operations, as a result of additional trains in operation at the SPL Project; an increased derivative gain related to interest rate swap position; and a decreased loss on early extinguishment of debt.
