Highlights

  • Reported a net loss attributable to EnLink of $16.1 million, compared to net income of $28.0 million for the second quarter of 2018. Reported net cash provided by operating activities of $257.5 million for the second quarter of 2019.
  • Delivered adjusted EBITDA of $259.2 million, distributable cash flow (DCF) of $167.6 million, and distribution coverage of 1.20x. Second quarter results were impacted by the write off of EnLink's secured term loan receivable due to the bankruptcy filing of a customer, White Star Petroleum Holdings, LLC (White Star), that resulted in the recognition of a $40.5 million after-tax loss in EnLink's consolidated statement of operations.
  • Announced the signing of a precedent agreement for natural gas transportation services related to Venture Global's Calcasieu Pass liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility. EnLink expects to spend approximately $20 million on this project during 2020, at an attractive adjusted EBITDA multiple of 1 to 2 times. Venture Global has secured equity funding and is in the late stages of completing debt financing for the Calcasieu Pass facility, and, should Venture Global reach a positive final investment decision, EnLink's project is expected to be operational during 2021.
  • Placed into service the 200 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) Thunderbird natural gas processing plant in Oklahoma, resulting in a total of 1.2 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of total gas processing capacity in Central Oklahoma. The new processing plant averaged a utilization rate of approximately 50% for the month of July.
  • Updated financial guidance due to moderating producer activity in Oklahoma and a shift in timing of producer activity in the Permian Basin:
    • Updated full-year 2019 net loss guidance to a range of $24 million to $31 million, revised down from the previous guidance range of net income between $18 million and $28 million. The updated range includes a $40.5 million non-cash loss, net of taxes, related to the complete write off of the White Star secured term loan receivable recognized during the second quarter of 2019, and a $186.5 million goodwill impairment recognized during the first quarter of 2019.
    • Updated full-year 2019 adjusted EBITDA guidance to a range of $1.07 billion to $1.10 billion.
    • Refined full-year estimated growth capital expenditures, net to EnLink, guidance range to $630 million to $710 million, from the original range of $565 million to $725 million. Growth capital expenditures remain within the original guidance range even with new project announcements in the Permian during the first quarter of 2019 due to successful sequencing of capital with well completions in Oklahoma.
    • Updated target distribution growth rate to approximately 5% for full-year 2019 over 2018 and, going forward, to a range of up to 5% growth, from the previous guidance range of 5% to 10%.
  • Declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.283 per unit on all outstanding common units for the second quarter of 2019, which represents approximately 6% growth over the declared distribution for the second quarter of 2018.

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 Certain Definitions" below.

"EnLink's second quarter performance demonstrates the financial resilience of our business, the strength of our differentiated platform and the flexibility and diversity of our operations in the midst of an evolving operating environment," said Barry E. Davis, Executive Chairman. "During the quarter, outperformance in Louisiana and North Texas enabled us to deliver solid results despite moderated producer activity in Oklahoma and certain timing delays in the Permian.

"Looking ahead at the remainder of the year, we see stable growth, but the pace of that growth has moderated, particularly in Oklahoma. We are in a strong competitive position and are taking decisive actions to unlock the value of our business, optimize our performance, and execute on attractive growth opportunities. Our recent precedent agreement with Venture Global, which is expected to generate a highly attractive adjusted EBITDA multiple of between 1 to 2 times, is an excellent example of our ability to identify and execute on opportunities that strengthen our platform. Our financial strength, further enhanced by our partnership with GIP, will enable us to capitalize on these types of opportunities going forward."

Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

  • Reported a net loss of $16.1 million, including a $40.5 million loss, net of taxes, related to the complete write-off of a secured term loan receivable from White Star. In May 2019, White Star defaulted on its approximately $10 million installment payment under the secured term loan receivable and filed for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
  • Achieved adjusted EBITDA net to EnLink of $259.2 million. If the previously expected White Star payment of approximately $10 million had been received, adjusted EBITDA net to EnLink would have been approximately $269.2 million.
  • Reported net cash provided by operating activities of $257.5 million.
  • Achieved DCF of $167.6 million. If the previously expected White Star payment of approximately $10 million had been received, DCF would have been approximately $177.6 million.
  • Distribution coverage was 1.20x for the second quarter of 2019. If the previously expected White Star payment of approximately $10 million had been received, distribution coverage would have been approximately 1.27x.
  • Debt-to-adjusted EBITDA, as calculated under the terms of EnLink's credit facility, was 4.0x.
  • Growth capital expenditures, net to EnLink, were approximately $141.9 million for the second quarter and $361.4 million for the first half of 2019.
  • As of August 1, EnLink had 487,245,808 common units outstanding.

 Precedent Long-Term Natural Gas Transport Agreement Signed with Venture Global

  • EnLink entered into a new precedent agreement for natural gas transportation with Venture Global, a provider of LNG, with export facilities under development along the U.S. Gulf Coast.
  • Under the terms of the 20-year fixed-fee agreement, EnLink will transport natural gas feedstock to Venture Global's Calcasieu Pass facility in western Louisiana.
  • Growth capital expenditures, net to EnLink, associated with the agreement are expected to be approximately $20 million. The majority of the growth capital associated with this project will be spent during 2020, and the project is expected to generate an attractive adjusted EBITDA multiple of between 1 to 2 times.
  • Venture Global has secured equity funding and is in the late stages of completing debt financing for the Calcasieu Pass facility, and, should Venture Global reach a positive final investment decision, EnLink's project is expected to be operational during 2021.

Full-Year 2019 Financial Guidance Update

  • EnLink updated its financial 2019 guidance ranges due to moderating producer activity in Oklahoma and a shift in timing in producer activity in the Permian Basin.
  • A net loss range of $24 million to $31 million is projected for full-year 2019, revised down from the previous guidance range of net income between $18 million and $28 million. The updated range includes a $40.5 million non-cash loss, net of taxes, related to the complete write-off of the White Star secured term loan receivable recognized this quarter and a $186.5 million goodwill impairment recognized during the first quarter of 2019.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is projected to range from $1.07 billion to $1.10 billion for full-year 2019.
  • DCF is projected to range from $715 million to $735 million for full-year 2019, relative to the previous guidance range of $730 million to $800 million.
  • Growth capital expenditures net to EnLink for full-year 2019 are projected to range from $630 million to $710 million, refined from the prior range of $565 million to $725 million.
  • Annual, as declared, distribution growth is being refined to approximately 5% for full-year 2019 over 2018, which is within the previous guidance range of 5% to 10% growth for 2019. On a go-forward basis, annual distribution growth is expected to be in the range of up to 5%.

Second Quarter 2019 Segment Updates
Oklahoma:

  • Segment profit for the second quarter of 2019 was approximately 3% higher as compared to the first quarter of 2019 and 7% higher as compared to the second quarter of 2018 (excluding the non-cash $45.5 million contract restructuring benefit related to White Star reported during the second quarter of 2018).
  • The Oklahoma segment also achieved natural gas volume growth quarter over quarter and year over year. Natural gas gathering and transportation volumes for the second quarter of 2019 were approximately 6% higher as compared to the first quarter of 2019 and approximately 7% higher as compared to the second quarter of 2018. Average natural gas processing volumes for the second quarter of 2019 increased approximately 5% and 8% when compared to the first quarter of 2019 and the second quarter of 2018, respectively.
  • Average crude gathering volumes in the second quarter of 2019 increased significantly quarter over quarter and year over year. Crude gathering volumes for the second quarter of 2019 were approximately 84% higher as compared to the first quarter of 2019 and approximately 300% higher as compared to the second quarter of 2018 due to the continued ramp up of crude gathering services in the STACK play in Oklahoma.
  • EnLink's previously announced 200 MMcf/d Thunderbird processing plant became operational at the end of the second quarter of 2019. With the completion of the Thunderbird natural gas processing plant, EnLink's total gas processing capacity in Central Oklahoma exceeds 1.2 Bcf/d. Volumes processed by Thunderbird averaged around 100 MMcf/d during July.
  • Oklahoma segment profit is forecasted to grow by approximately 5% to 10% in the second half of 2019 as compared to the first half of 2019 because of expected increased volume throughput.

Permian Basin:

  • The Permian Basin segment reported growth in segment profit of approximately 7% for the second quarter of 2019 as compared to the second quarter of 2018. Permian segment profit declined 13% for the second quarter of 2019 as compared to the first quarter of 2019, due primarily to lower commodity prices during the period and lower gross operating margin contributions from EnLink's Permian crude business due to the impact of crude price fluctuations. EnLink hedges exposure to crude price fluctuations, and will realize the benefit of some of the related hedges for the Permian crude business in the third quarter of 2019.
  • Average natural gas volume activity realized strong growth for the second quarter of 2019, as compared to the second quarter of 2018, with average gathering and transportation volumes increasing by approximately 32%, while processing volumes increased by approximately 37% over the same period. Average natural gas gathering and transportation volumes for the second quarter of 2019 experienced growth of 3% as compared to the first quarter of 2019, and average processing volumes experienced 2% growth as compared to the first quarter of 2019.
  • Average crude gathering volumes achieved growth for the second quarter of 2019, increasing approximately 20% as compared to the second quarter of 2018 and reflecting a slight decline of 1% over the first quarter of 2019 driven primarily by lower trucking volumes.
  • Permian Basin segment profit is forecasted to grow by approximately 15% to 25% in the second half of 2019 as compared to the first half because of expected increased volume throughput.

Louisiana:

  • Segment profit contribution from the Louisiana segment for the second quarter of 2019 was unchanged as compared to the second quarter of 2018 and declined 15% as compared to the first quarter of 2019. The second quarter of the year tends to be the weakest quarter for the Louisiana segment, mainly driven by normal seasonal activity related to EnLink's Gulf Coast NGL operations. The Louisiana natural gas system was also impacted by normal course contract roll-offs, as expected, and re-contracting in a lower natural gas pricing environment. EnLink's natural gas system has strategic Gulf Coast access to growing demand markets and is expected to generate growing cash flows over the long-term.
  • The Cajun-Sibon III NGL pipeline expansion became operational during the second quarter of 2019, increasing liquids transportation capabilities from the Mont Belvieu NGL hub region to EnLink's fractionation facilities on the Louisiana Gulf Coast. Cajun-Sibon III expands EnLink's NGL transport capacity to approximately 185,000 barrels per day. Growth capital expenditures for Cajun-Sibon III were approximately $50 million, which are expected to generate an average annual adjusted EBITDA multiple of 2 to 3 times. EnLink experienced record NGL volumes of 178,000 barrels per day during the second quarter of 2019, and the Cajun-Sibon III expansion being in full-service will be a key growth driver during the second half of 2019.
  • Average natural gas gathering and transportation volumes activity on EnLink's Louisiana system for the second quarter of 2019 decreased by approximately 7% and 8%, as compared to the first quarter of 2019 and the second quarter of 2018, respectively.
  • Average natural gas processing volumes decreased by approximately 28% and 15% as compared to the first quarter of 2019 and the second quarter of 2018, respectively, due to a reduction in opportunity processing from a generally weaker commodity price environment. This tends to be a low-margin activity for EnLink, thus the impact on segment profit for the second quarter of 2019 was insignificant.
  • Average crude volumes handled in EnLink's Ohio River Valley operations increased during the second quarter of 2019, as compared to the first quarter of 2019 and the second quarter of 2018, by approximately 33% and 25%, respectively, due to improved producer activity in the region.
  • Louisiana segment profit is forecasted to grow by approximately 5% to 10% in the second half of 2019, as compared to the first half because of expected increased volume throughput.

North Texas:

  • In line with company expectations, segment profit declined by approximately 21% for the second quarter of 2019 as compared to the second quarter of 2018 because of the expiration of minimum volume commitments with Devon Energy Corp. on December 31, 2018. Minimum volume commitment deficiency payments accounted for approximately 22% of segment profit for the second quarter of 2018. Segment profit for the second quarter of 2019 reduced modestly, by approximately 3% as compared to the first quarter of 2019.
  • Average natural gas volume decline for the second quarter of 2019, as compared to the second quarter of 2018, was between 2% and 6% for gathering, transmission, and processing volumes.
  • North Texas segment profit is forecasted to decline by approximately 5% to 10% in the second half of 2019, as compared to the first half as a result of the expected decline in volume throughput due to limited new drilling activity.

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, loss on secured term loan receivable, 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 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 six months ended June 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.

(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. 

(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.

If the White Star payment of approximately $10 million, as discussed in (1) above, had been received in May of 2019, adjusted EBITDA would have been approximately $269.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, and approximately $537.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

(1)

Net of amortization of debt issuance costs and discount and premium, which are included in interest expense but not included in net cash provided by operating activities, and non-cash interest income, which is netted against interest expense but not included in adjusted EBITDA. 

(2)

Represents transaction costs primarily attributable to costs incurred related to the acquisition of all outstanding, publicly-held ENLK common units.

(3)

Includes accruals for settled commodity swap transactions and distributions received from equity method investments to the extent those distributions exceed earnings from the investment.

(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% s 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 June 30, 2019, and cash distributions earned by the ENLK Series B Preferred Units and ENLK Series C Preferred Units of $33.8 million and $12.0 million, respectively, for the six months ended June 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.

(8)

If the White Star payment of approximately $10 million had been received in May of 2019, distributable cash flow would have been approximately $177.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, and approximately $362.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Distributable cash flow is not presented for the three and six months ended June 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.

(1)

Represents the revised forward-looking net income guidance for the year ended December 31, 2019, and includes the actual results for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and the projected results for the second half of the year ended December 31, 2019. The forward-looking net income guidance from July 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019 excludes the potential impact of gains or losses on derivative activity, gains or losses on disposition of assets, impairment expense, 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)

Net income includes estimated net income attributable to (i) NGP's 49.9% share of net income from the Delaware Basin JV and (ii) Marathon Petroleum Corp.'s 50% share of net income from the Ascension JV.

(3)

Represents non-cash loss of $52.9 million related to the write-off of the White Star secured term loan receivable.

(4)

Includes (i) estimated accretion expense associated with asset retirement obligations; (ii) estimated non-cash rent, which relates to lease incentives pro-rated over the lease term; and (iii) transaction costs, including transaction costs related to the simplification transaction.

(5)

Non-controlling interest share of adjusted EBITDA includes estimates for (i) NGP's 49.9% share of adjusted EBITDA from the Delaware Basin JV, (ii) Marathon's 50% share of adjusted EBITDA from the Ascension JV, and (iii) other minor non-controlling interests.

(6)

Represents the cash distributions earned by the ENLK Series B Preferred Units and ENLK Series C Preferred Units. Cash distributions to be paid to holders of the ENLK Series B Preferred Units and ENLC Series C Preferred Units are not available to common unitholders.
