RADNOR, Pa., July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PVR Partners, L.P. (NYSE: PVR) ("PVR") today reported financial and operational results for the three months ended June 30, 2013.  In addition, PVR declared a quarterly distribution of $0.55 per unit.

Second Quarter Results
Second quarter 2013 highlights and results, with comparisons to results for the second quarter of 2012 ("last year") and the first quarter of 2013 ("last quarter"), included the following:

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $76.1 million as compared to $57.0 million last year and $76.0 million last quarter.
  • Distributable Cash Flow ("DCF") of $49.0 million as compared to $32.9 million last year and $49.9 million last quarter.
  • Average daily natural gas throughput volumes of 1.7 billion cubic feet per day ("Bcfd") as compared with 0.9 Bcfd last year and 1.6 Bcfd last quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA and DCF are not Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") measures.  Definitions and reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to GAAP reporting measures appear in the financial tables which follow.

Quarterly Distribution

The Board of Directors of PVR GP, LLC, the general partner of PVR, declared a quarterly distribution of $0.55 per unit payable in cash on August 14, 2013 to common unitholders of record at the close of business on August 7, 2013.  This distribution equates to an annualized rate of $2.20 per unit, which is unchanged from the distribution paid with respect to the first quarter of 2013 and represents a 3.8% increase over the distribution paid with respect to the second quarter of 2012.

Management Comment

"Our second quarter results were consistent with our first quarter performance, and significantly ahead of last year's second quarter results," said Bill Shea, President and CEO of PVR's general partner.  "However, results for the second quarter were below our expectations primarily due to producers delaying well connections in our Eastern Midstream operations.  Some wells originally scheduled for connection in the second quarter have been delayed until later this year resulting in lower second quarter throughput volumes.  These delays have negatively impacted our 2013 revenue projections and we have adjusted our 2013 guidance to reflect the financial impact on our full year results.

"Our continued belief in the long-term prospects for our Eastern Midstream operations is supported by strong results from the wells that have been drilled and completed within our areas of operations, the continuing level of drilling activity within the region, and the overall scope and scale of the future drilling plans communicated by producers," continued Mr. Shea.  "However, changes in producers' detailed schedules can materially impact volume and revenue growth on a quarter to quarter basis.  Based on the revised well connection schedules most recently provided by producers, we expect total average daily Eastern Midstream throughput volumes at year end will be in the range of 1.6 to 1.8 Bcfd."

Eastern Midstream Segment Results

The Eastern Midstream Segment reported second quarter 2013 results, with comparisons to second quarter 2012 results and the first quarter of 2013, as follows:

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $38.1 million as compared to $17.7 million last year and $37.7 million last quarter, primarily due to the continued development of internal growth projects and the acquisition of Chief Gathering LLC.
  • Quarterly average throughput volumes of 1.3 Bcfd as compared to 0.5 Bcfd last year and 1.2 Bcfd last quarter, reflecting growth on PVR's existing systems, as well as the acquisition and expansion of the Chief Gathering systems.

Midcontinent Midstream Segment Results

The Midcontinent Midstream Segment reported second quarter 2013 results, with comparisons to second quarter 2012 results and the first quarter of 2013, as follows:

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $14.9 million as compared to $12.7 million last year and $15.7 million last quarter.
  • Quarterly average throughput volumes of 382 MMcfd as compared to 453 MMcfd last year and 391 MMcfd last quarter.  Second quarter 2012 volumes included approximately 52 MMcfd attributable to the Crossroads system that was sold on July 3, 2012.

Coal and Natural Resource Management Segment Results

The Coal and Natural Resource Management Segment reported second quarter 2013 results, with comparisons to second quarter 2012 results and the first quarter of 2013, as follows:

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $23.1 million as compared to $26.7 million last year and $22.7 million last quarter.  The year-over-year decline was primarily due to decreased coal production and pricing.
  • Coal royalty tons of 6.9 million tons as compared to 7.8 million tons last year and 6.4 million tons last quarter.
  • Coal royalties revenue of $23.2 million, or $3.37 per ton, as compared to $29.2 million, or $3.76 per ton last year and $23.0 million or $3.56 per ton last quarter.

Second quarter 2013 coal segment revenue included a $2.3 million one-time recognition of forfeitures of minimum payments from a lessee declaring bankruptcy.

Capital Investment and Resources

We invested $110.9 million on internal growth projects in our midstream businesses during the second quarter of 2013, of which $97.5 million was invested in the Eastern Midstream Segment.

On May 9th, PVR closed a $400 million offering of Senior Notes.  The net proceeds from the offering were used to repay a portion of the borrowings outstanding under PVR's $1.0 billion revolving credit facility.  As of June 30, 2013, we had borrowings of $457.5 million under our revolving credit facility, with remaining borrowing capacity thereunder of $532.1 million after adjusting for outstanding letters of credit.

Expansion Projects Update

The development and build-out of important growth projects in the Marcellus, Utica, Cline and Mississippian Lime continued during the second quarter of 2013.

  • Construction of the new "Severcool" compressor facility and central delivery point on the Wyoming County trunkline was completed and began operation during June.  Completion of these facilities added 85 MMcfd of firm volume commitment to the Wyoming trunkline beginning July 1, 2013.
  • The new interconnection into the Wyoming trunkline for Carrizo Oil & Gas and Reliance Group began service during June.
  • The second phase of the new Lycoming gathering system, for which Inflection Energy is the primary shipper, was completed and began service in the second quarter.  Work on additional phases of this system continues.
  • Completion of 13 new well connections in the Eastern Midstream Segment during the second quarter.
  • Construction of the initial phase of our gathering system in Greene County, Pennsylvania has been completed.  Volume on the system during the second quarter averaged 12 MMcfd.
  • Early phase development work continues on a proposed new trunkline and gathering system in the Utica shale.
  • Completion of 52 new well connections in the Midcontinent Midstream Segment during the second quarter.

Financial Guidance for 2013

Based on current expectations, management has updated its Adjusted EBITDA guidance for 2013.  Full year 2013 Adjusted EBITDA for the Eastern Midstream Segment is now expected to be in the range of $160 to $185 million and the Midcontinent Midstream Segment is now expected to be in the range of $60 to $70 million.  Adjusted EBITDA for the Coal and Natural Resource Management Segment in the range of $75 to $85 million remains unchanged.  Management now anticipates that full year 2013 maintenance capital expenditures will be in the range of $13 to $15 million.  PVR's expectation for full year 2013 internal growth capital in the range of $350 to $400 million remains unchanged.

PVR's financial guidance is based on numerous assumptions about future events and conditions and, therefore, could vary materially from actual results.  These estimates, including capital expenditure plans, are meant to provide guidance only and are subject to revision for acquisitions or operating environment changes.  Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure; reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to GAAP reporting measures appear in the financial tables which follow.

Second Quarter 2013 Financial and Operational Results Conference Call

(a) Segment Adjusted EBITDA, or earnings before interest, tax and depreciation, depletion and amortization ("DD&A"), represents net income plus DD&A, plus impairments, plus acquisition related costs, plus interest expense, minus derivative gains and other items included in net income. We believe EBITDA or a version of Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies in the natural gas midstream and coal industries. We use this information for comparative purposes within the industry. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to net income.

 

(b) Distributable cash flow represents net income plus DD&A, plus impairments, plus acquisition related costs, plus (minus) derivative losses (gains) included in net income, plus (minus) cash received (paid) for derivative settlements, minus equity earnings in joint ventures, plus cash distributions from joint ventures, minus maintenance capital expenditures. At management's discretion, a fixed amount of $1.8 million per quarter in 2013 and $1.3 million per quarter in 2012 has been included in maintenance capital for well connects. Distributable cash flow is also the quantitative standard used by investors and professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of publicly traded partnerships. Distributable cash flow is presented because we believe it is a useful adjunct to net cash provided by operating activities under GAAP. Distributable cash flow is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities, as an indicator of cash flows, as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to net income. For comparative purposes, prior year amounts exclude replacement capital expenditures.

 

(c) Net income, as adjusted, represents net income adjusted to exclude the effects of non-cash impairment charges, one-time charges related to acquisitions and changes in the fair value of derivatives. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies in the natural gas midstream industry.

Our exposure profile with respect to commodity prices depends on many factors, including inlet volumes, plant operational efficiencies, contractual terms, and the price relationship between ethane and natural gas.

We anticipate operating our plants in "ethane rejection" for the remainder of 2013. Under this operational mode, we estimate that for every $1.00 per MMBtu change in the natural gas price, our natural gas midstream gross margin and operating income for the remainder of 2013 would change by $7.8 million, excluding the effect of the natural gas hedges described above, and all other factors remaining constant. The natural gas hedges described above would reduce the net impact to $6.8 million.

Similarly, for every $5.00 per barrel change in crude oil prices, with all other factors remaining constant, and excluding the effect of the 2013 crude oil derivative described above, we estimate that our natural gas midstream gross margin and operating income would change by $1.4 million. The crude oil hedge described above would reduce the net impact to $0.9 million.

For every $0.10 per gallon increase in the price of ethane with all other factors remaining constant, we estimate that our gross margin and operating income will decrease by $1.6 million while operating in ethane rejection. Finally, for every $0.10 per gallon increase in the price of other NGLs with all other factors remaining constant, we estimate that our gross margin and operating income will increase by $1.3 million.

(1) The natural gas swaps settle against the monthly index price reported in Inside FERC's Natural Gas Market Report for Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline (Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas), which has historically tended to be settled at a lower price than the Henry Hub national benchmark. A significant portion of our physical gas sales are also priced using this reported monthly index.
