- Results Squarely In Line With Plan; Robust Year Over Year EBITDA Growth

- EBITDA and Dividend Growth Rates Confirmed

- Growth and Modernization Investments Continue to Advance

Nov 03, 2015, 06:30 ET from Columbia Pipeline Group, Inc.

HOUSTON, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Columbia Pipeline Group, Inc. (NYSE: CPGX) ("CPG") reported net operating earnings from continuing operations - controlling interest (non-GAAP) of $68.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, compared with $53.3 million for the prior-year period.

Operating earnings (non-GAAP) for the third quarter were $142.4 million compared with $94.5 million for the prior-year period. For the third quarter, Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was $178.1 million compared with $126.4 million in 2014. Additionally, distributable cash flow (non-GAAP) was $111.3 million for the third quarter. Please refer to Schedules 1 and 2 in the financial tables below for a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

On a GAAP basis, CPG reported income from continuing operations - controlling interest for the three months ended September 30, 2015 of $63.1 million compared with $53.7 million for the prior-year period. Operating income for the third quarter was $135.9 million compared with $94.5 million for the prior year period.

"CPG's third quarter was an important milestone, as it marked our first quarter as an independent public company -- one that, despite recent turmoil in the financial markets, reflected the team's continued focus on flawlessly executing our business and growth plans," said CPG Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Robert C. Skaggs, Jr. "The fundamentals of our business remain solid, and our growth profile continues to distinguish CPG. The CPG Team delivered quarterly results squarely in line with our expectations, and we remain on track to meet our 2015 EBITDA target of approximately $680 million," Skaggs added.

In confirming CPG's expected average annual EBITDA and dividend growth rates of 20 percent and 15 percent, respectively, Skaggs underscored the key attributes that differentiate CPG and make it a compelling investment proposition -- a stable core business with highly predictable cash flows, an unparalleled strategic asset footprint in the Marcellus and Utica shale regions, and a robust and highly visible inventory of contracted, accretive growth and modernization investments.

Transformational Growth and Modernization Initiatives Continue to Advance

During the third quarter, CPG continued to strengthen its competitive market position in the Marcellus and Utica shale production regions by advancing several major growth projects, three of which were recently placed in service. CPG also continued to execute its long-term system modernization program. Highlights include:

  • CPG's East Side Expansion project was placed in service in early October. The nearly $300 million project provides 312 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of additional capacity for Marcellus Shale supplies to reach growing, and capacity constrained, northeastern and mid-Atlantic markets.
  • On September 17, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved construction of CPG's Cameron Access project which will include enhancements to the existing Columbia Gulf pipeline system, a new compressor station and the installation of an approximately 26-mile pipeline lateral that will provide direct access to the Cameron LNG export facility.  The project involves an investment of approximately $310 million and is targeted to be placed in service in early 2018.
  • On September 16, CPG's Mountaineer XPress (MXP) project was accepted into the FERC's Pre-Filing process. MXP will provide significant new takeaway capacity for Marcellus and Utica Shale production. Specifically, MXP will provide up to 2.7 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of firm transportation capacity on the Columbia Gas Transmission system. In addition, the Gulf XPress project (GXP) will provide nearly 900 MMcf/d of firm transportation capacity on the Columbia Gulf Transmission system. Together, MXP and GXP involve an investment of approximately $2.7 billion. The projects are targeted to be placed in service during the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • Progress continues on several other major growth projects, including CPG's approximately $1.8 billion Leach XPress and Rayne XPress projects and the $850 million WB XPress project. Together, with the Cameron Access project mentioned above, these projects will create approximately 4 Bcf/d of new capacity commitments across the CPG system, including access to LNG export facilities in Louisiana and Maryland.
  • Columbia Midstream Group (CMG) continued to execute on its Marcellus and Utica-based growth plan by placing in service the first phase of its $120 million Washington County Gathering project, as well as the initial phase of its $75 million Big Pine Expansion project.
  • CMG also continues to advance its Gibraltar project -- an approximately $270 million investment in a 1 Bcf/d dry gas header pipeline in southwest Pennsylvania targeting Utica production.  The first phase of the project is expected to be placed in service during the fourth quarter of 2016.
  • In addition, CMG recently announced the expansion of its Pennant Joint Venture with the addition of Williams Partners L.P. affiliate, Three Rivers Midstream LLC. The addition of Three Rivers Midstream will nearly triple the acreage dedicated to the Pennant system to more than 500,000 acres, which is expected to significantly increase Pennant's infrastructure investment opportunities over time.
  • Finally, CPG has completed the third year of the Columbia Gas Transmission long-term system modernization program, which is underpinned by a first-of-its-kind FERC approved customer settlement. CPG expects to place approximately $319 million of modernization investments into service as of October 31, 2015, and expects to begin rate recovery on those investments in February 2016. Discussions with customers are underway regarding the possible extension of the program.

"The CPG team's core mission is to execute flawlessly on our extensive backlog of growth and modernization investments and to continue to create value for our customers, shareholders and other key stakeholders," said Skaggs.  "This quarter's performance demonstrates, yet again, that the CPG Team is up to the challenge."

Three Months Ended September 30, 2015 Operating Results

CPG's net operating earnings from continuing operations - controlling interest (non-GAAP) for the three months ended September 30, 2015 were $68.5 million compared with $53.3 million for the prior-year period. Please refer to Schedule 1 for a reconciliation of net operating earnings to GAAP. A comparison of operating results for the three months ended September 30, 2015 to the three months ended September 30, 2014 is summarized below. Earnings for the periods prior to the date of CPG's separation from NiSource Inc. are derived from the financial statements and accounting records of CPG's predecessor.

Operating revenues, excluding the impact of trackers, increased by $17.7 million, primarily due to higher demand margin revenue from growth projects placed into service and new firm contracts, partially offset by a decrease in mineral rights royalties.

Operating expenses, excluding the impact of trackers, decreased by $26.8 million, primarily due to higher gains on the conveyances of mineral interests and decreased employee and administrative costs, partially offset by increased depreciation, higher outside service costs and increased other taxes.

Equity earnings increased by $3.4 million, primarily due to new Pennant joint venture facilities being fully placed in-service.

Other income (deductions) decreased income by $11.9 million, primarily due to an increase in interest expense resulting from the issuance of long-term debt in May 2015, partially offset by Allowance for Funds Used During Construction ("AFUDC").

The effective tax rate of net operating earnings was 32.9% compared with 36.3% for the same period last year. The 3.4% decrease is primarily due to Columbia Pipeline Partners LP ("CPPL") earnings for which the noncontrolling public limited partners are directly responsible for the related income taxes.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2015 Operating Results

CPG's net operating earnings from continuing operations - controlling interest (non-GAAP) for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 were $210.7 million compared with $205.7 million for the prior-year period. Please refer to Schedule 1 for a reconciliation of net operating earnings to GAAP. A comparison of operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 to the nine months ended September 30, 2014 is summarized below. Earnings for the periods prior to the date of CPG's separation from NiSource Inc. are derived from the financial statements and accounting records of CPG's predecessor.

Operating revenues, excluding the impact of trackers, increased by $60.0 million, primarily due to higher demand margin revenue from growth projects placed into service and new firm contracts, partially offset by a decrease in mineral rights royalties and lower condensate revenues.

Operating expenses, excluding the impact of trackers, increased by $14.9 million, primarily due to higher outside service costs, increased depreciation, higher employee and administrative costs and increased other taxes. These increases were partially offset by increased gains on the conveyances of mineral interests.

Equity earnings increased by $11.6 million, primarily due to new Pennant joint venture facilities being fully placed into service and new compression assets at Millennium Pipeline Company, L.L.C.

Other income (deductions) for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 decreased income by $24.1 million compared with the same period in 2014. The increase was primarily due to an increase in interest expense resulting from the issuance of long-term debt in May 2015, partially offset by AFUDC and higher interest income.

The effective tax rate of net operating earnings was 33.6% compared with 37.0% for the same period last year. The 3.4% decrease is primarily due to CPPL earnings for which the noncontrolling public limited partners are directly responsible for the related income taxes.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Operating Earnings, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow

We define Operating Earnings as operating income adjusted for transactions that are considered unusual, infrequent or not representative of underlying trends. Examples of these transactions include impairments and costs associated with CPG's separation from NiSource Inc. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization, plus distributions of earnings received from equity investees, less equity earnings in unconsolidated affiliates and other, net. In addition, to the extent transactions occur that are considered unusual, infrequent or not representative of underlying trends, we will remove the effect of these items from Adjusted EBITDA. Examples of these transactions include impairments and costs associated with the separation. We define Distributable Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA less net cash interest expense, maintenance capital expenditures, gain on sale of assets and distributable cash flow attributable to noncontrolling interest plus proceeds from sale of assets, interest income, capital costs related to the separation and any other known differences between cash and income.

Operating Earnings, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are non-GAAP supplemental financial measures that management and external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, may use to assess the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects and the returns on investment of various investment opportunities.

We believe that the presentations of Operating Earnings, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow will provide useful information to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to Operating Earnings is Operating Income. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are Net Income and Net Cash Flows from Operating Activities. Our non-GAAP financial measures of Operating Earnings, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP operating income, net income or net cash flows from operating activities. Operating Earnings, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow have important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some but not all items that affect operating income, net income and net cash flows from operating activities. You should not consider Operating Earnings, Adjusted EBITDA or Distributable Cash Flow in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Because Operating Earnings, Adjusted EBITDA or Distributable Cash Flow may be defined differently by other companies in our industry, our definitions of Operating Earnings, Adjusted EBITDA or Distributable Cash Flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility.
