Outlook and Guidance Non-GAAP EPS is estimated in the range of $1.15 to $1.25 for 2016, excluding the impact of potential acquisitions. InfraREIT is introducing Non-GAAP EPS as a supplemental measure of the Company's operating performance to enable investors to compare InfraREIT with traditional regulated utility companies. InfraREIT anticipates CAD per share for 2016 in the range of $1.15 to $1.25, excluding the impact of potential acquisitions. 

The Company estimates footprint capital expenditures in its current service territory in the following ranges over the next three years: $220 million to $240 million for 2016; $250 million to $280 million for 2017; and $170 million to $220 million for 2018. The Company's consolidated debt profile continues to target debt as a percentage of total capitalization at or below 60 percent and AFFO-to-debt of at least 12 percent.

The Company anticipates that footprint capital expenditures will enable a projected CAGR range in dividends per share of 8 percent to 10 percent from 2015 through 2018, with a targeted payout ratio of 80 percent to 90 percent. Additionally, the potential acquisition of both the Golden Spread Project and Cross Valley Project could add 1 percent to 2 percent growth to the Company's projections for dividends per share CAGR from 2015 through 2018.

The guidance provided above represents forward-looking statements, which are based on current economic conditions and estimates, and do not include other potential impacts, such as changes in accounting or unusual items. Supplemental information relating to the Company's financial outlook is posted in the Investor Relations section of the Company's Web site at www.InfraREITInc.com.

Recently filed Shelf Registration Statements are Unrelated to Company Financing Plans On February 18, 2016, and March 3, 2016, the Company filed shelf registration statements on Form S-3 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  However, these registration statements have no effect on, and do not relate to, the Company's financing plans for its business.  The March 3rd registration statement covers the potential resale from time-to-time of up to 22,192,899 shares of its common stock owned by certain of the Company's founding investors. InfraREIT will not receive any cash proceeds from sales of the Company common stock pursuant to the registration statements. These registration statements were filed in order to comply with the Company's obligations under the registration rights agreement entered into in connection with the Company's IPO. This agreement was subsequently amended on March 1, 2016 to, among other things, postpone the Company's obligation to register for resale a portion of the shares owned by Hunt until Hunt's lock-up obligations with respect to those securities expire in 2018 and 2020.  These registration statements have been filed with the SEC but have not yet become effective, and the securities registered thereunder may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the applicable registration statement becomes effective.

ROFO Project Updates In November 2015, the Conflicts Committee of InfraREIT's board of directors received an offer for the purchase of the Golden Spread Project. The Conflicts Committee also received an offer for the purchase of the Cross Valley Project in February 2016. Negotiations are in progress regarding the purchase of both projects.

Generally, InfraREIT's monthly "ROFO Project Updates" will be provided after the closing of trading on the New York Stock Exchange on or about the 15th day of each month. These ROFO Project Updates can be found on the Company's Web site (www.InfraREITInc.com) under the "Hunt Transmission-Our Developer" and "Investor Relations" sections. InfraREIT has also provided a ROFO Project Update in its "2015 Full Year Results & Supplemental Information" presentation posted on the Company's Web site as of today. The next ROFO Project Update will be issued on April 15, 2016.

Dividends and Distributions On March 2, 2016, InfraREIT's board of directors declared cash distributions and dividends of $0.25 per unit and share, respectively, to unitholders and stockholders of record on March 31, 2016, payable on April 21, 2016.

On December 4, 2015, InfraREIT's board of directors declared cash distributions and dividends of $0.225 per unit and share, respectively, to unitholders and stockholders of record on December 31, 2015, which was paid on January 21, 2016.

Non-GAAP Measures This press release contains certain financial measures that are not recognized under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Non-GAAP EPS, CAD, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, FFO and AFFO are presented because InfraREIT's management believes these non-GAAP measures help investors understand InfraREIT's business, performance and ability to earn and distribute cash to its stockholders by providing perspectives not immediately apparent from net income.  These measures are also frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties. The non-GAAP measures presented in this press release are not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. In addition, InfraREIT's method of calculating these measures may be different from methods used by other companies, and, accordingly, may not be comparable to similar measures as calculated by other companies that do not use the same methodology as InfraREIT. Reconciliations of these measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in the Schedules to this press release.

InfraREIT defines non-GAAP net income as net income (loss) adjusted in a manner the Company believes is appropriate to show its core operational performance, including: (a) adding back the non-cash reorganization structuring fee, (b) adding back the reorganization expense related to the Company's IPO and related reorganization transactions, (c) adding back the expense related to the contingent consideration issued as deemed capital credits, (d) an adjustment for the difference between the amount of percentage rent payments that the Company expects to receive with respect to the applicable period and the amount of percentage rent the Company recognizes under GAAP during the period and (e) an adjustment for the difference between the amount of base rent payments that the Company receives with respect to the applicable period and the amount of straight-line base rent recognized under GAAP.  The Company defines Non-GAAP EPS as non-GAAP net income divided by the weighted average shares outstanding calculated in the manner described in the footnotes below.

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of net income attributable to InfraREIT, Inc. per diluted share to Non-GAAP EPS per share:

1)

Represents the difference between the amount of percentage rent payments and the amounts recognized during the applicable period, if any.  Although the Company receives percentage rent payments related to each quarter, it does not recognize lease revenue related to percentage rent payments until the tenant's annual gross revenues exceed minimum specified breakpoints in the leases.

2)

This adjustment relates to the difference between the timing of cash based rent payments made under the Company's leases and when the Company recognizes base rent revenue under GAAP.  The Company recognizes base rent on a straight-line basis over the applicable term of the lease commencing when the related assets are placed in service, which is frequently different than the period in which the cash rent becomes due.

Schedule 4

InfraREIT, Inc.

Explanation and Reconciliation of FFO and AFFO

FFO and AFFO

The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) defines FFO as net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains and losses from sales of property (net) and impairments of depreciated real estate, plus real estate depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs) and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.  Applying the NAREIT definition to the Company's consolidated financial statements, which is the basis for the FFO presented in this press release and the reconciliation below, results in FFO representing net (loss) income before depreciation, impairment of assets and gain (loss) on sale of assets.  FFO does not represent cash generated from operations as defined by GAAP and it is not indicative of cash available to fund all cash needs, including distributions.

AFFO is defined as FFO adjusted in a manner the Company believes is appropriate to show its core operational performance, including: (a) adding back the non-cash reorganization structuring fee, (b) an adjustment for the difference between the amount of percentage rent payments that the Company expects to receive with respect to the applicable period and the amount of percentage rent the Company recognizes under GAAP during the period, (c) an adjustment for the difference between the amount of base rent payments that the Company receives with respect to the applicable period and the amount of straight-line base rent recognized under GAAP, (d) adding back the reorganization expense related to the Company's IPO and related reorganization transactions and (e) adjusting for other income (expense), net.
