For the quarter, reported EBITDA was $787 million, compared with $663 million in the prior-year quarter.  Excluding special items of $11 million related to dropdown transaction costs, ongoing EBITDA was $798 million compared to $663 million in the prior-year quarter.  For the year, reported EBITDA was $3 billion, up from $2.78 billion in 2012.  Excluding special items of $34 million related to dropdown transaction costs, ongoing EBITDA was $3.03 billion compared to $2.78 billion in 2012.   Distributable cash flow for fourth quarter 2013 was $296 million, compared with $161 million in the prior-year quarter.  For the year, distributable cash flow was up $133 million over 2012 at $1.25 billion, compared with $1.11 billion in 2012.

"On virtually all fronts, 2013 was a very strong year for Spectra Energy.  We delivered financial results above expectations, fortified an already solid growth portfolio with new projects and prospects, and bolstered our financial flexibility through the transformational growth of our sector-leading fee-based MLP -- all of which directly translated into significant value for our investors," said Greg Ebel, president and chief executive officer, Spectra Energy Corp. 

"Our fee-based MLP structure and the placement of $6 billion of expansion capital into service last year strongly benefit current investors. Our $7 billion in secured future projects and significant growth potential in the natural gas and liquids businesses offer attractive upside to investors now and in the future," added Ebel. 

BUSINESS UPDATES

During 2013, Spectra Energy placed $6 billion of capital into service, either through the expansion of its assets like the New Jersey-New York project and those at DCP Midstream, or from the acquisition of new assets such as the Express-Platte system and the company's interest in Sand Hills and Southern Hills natural gas liquids (NGL) pipelines.  Along with a strong project execution and acquisition track record, Spectra Energy secured $7 billion of new growth opportunities, including Sabal Trail, AIM, OPEN and the Gulf Markets Expansion.

In November, Spectra Energy successfully completed the dropdown of its remaining U.S. transmission, storage and liquids assets into Spectra Energy Partners (SEP), resulting in the enterprise value of SEP growing to approximately $20 billion with premier, fee-based assets and attractive distribution growth. SEP also increased its quarterly distribution, to be paid in the first quarter of 2014, by 3 cents per unit and expects to continue with a 1 cent per unit quarterly increase through the plan period. 

SEGMENT RESULTS

Spectra Energy Partners

Spectra Energy Partners reported fourth quarter 2013 EBITDA of $368 million, compared with $316 million in fourth quarter 2012. 

Quarterly results benefitted greatly from the dropdown of Express-Platte, which has performed better than expected due to higher revenues. The increased earnings also reflect contributions from pipeline expansions, primarily the New Jersey-New York project placed into service November 1. 

Year-end reported EBITDA for Spectra Energy Partners was $1.43 billion, compared with $1.26 billion in 2012.

Distribution

Distribution reported fourth quarter 2013 EBITDA of $156 million, compared with $147 million in fourth quarter 2012. The increase is due to higher approved rates, colder weather and the negative effect in the fourth quarter 2012 of the decision from the Ontario Energy Board requiring certain transportation revenues be refunded to customers.  These increases were partially offset by higher operating and fuel costs and the effect of a lower Canadian dollar.   

Year-end reported EBITDA for Distribution was $574 million, compared with $587 million in 2012.

Western Canada Transmission & Processing

Western Canada Transmission & Processing reported fourth quarter 2013 EBITDA of $215 million, compared with $152 million in fourth quarter 2012.  The increase was mainly due to higher earnings at the Empress NGL business, attributable to higher propane sales prices, lower costs and improved contracting structures compared to fourth quarter 2012.  These benefits were partially offset by the effect of a lower Canadian dollar.

Year-end reported EBITDA for Western Canada Transmission & Processing was $736 million, compared with $694 million in 2012.

Field Services

Field Services reported fourth quarter 2013 EBITDA of $72 million, compared with $58 million in fourth quarter 2012. The increase in EBITDA is attributable primarily to higher commodity prices and the favorable effect of NGL marketing and movement on hedges at DCP Midstream Partners.  Higher earnings due to volume growth from the incremental processing capacity placed into service was more than offset by fourth quarter 2013 weather effects in the Permian basin and higher interest expense associated with newly issued debt and lower capitalized interest in the 2013 quarter.   

Year-end reported EBITDA for Field Services was $343 million, compared with $279 million in 2012.

During the fourth quarters of 2013 and 2012, respectively, DCP's realized NGL prices averaged $0.81 per gallon versus $0.77 per gallon, NYMEX natural gas averaged $3.60 per million British thermal units (MMBtu) versus $3.40 per MMBtu, and crude oil averaged $97 per barrel versus $88 per barrel.

DCP Midstream paid distributions of $215 million to Spectra Energy in 2013. 

Other

Excluding special items of $10 million for the SEP dropdowns and other transaction costs, ongoing net costs for "Other" were $14 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared with $10 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.    

Excluding special items of $27 million for the SEP dropdowns and other transaction costs, year-end ongoing net costs for "Other" were $59 million, compared with $36 million in 2012, with the increase primarily related to equity-based benefit costs. 

Other is primarily comprised of corporate costs, including benefits and captive insurance.

Interest Expense

Interest expense was $181 million for fourth quarter 2013 compared with $154 million for fourth quarter 2012.  The increase is driven by higher debt balances, primarily related to the acquisition of Express-Platte, and lower capitalized interest, partially offset by a weaker Canadian dollar.

Income Taxes

Fourth quarter 2013 income tax expense from continuing operations was $142 million, compared with $81 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2012.  The higher tax expense was driven by higher earnings and a $31 million special item related to the revaluation of our accumulated deferred state taxes due to the dropdowns of assets.  The effective tax rate was 34 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared with 25 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Additional Information

As a result of Spectra Energy's 2013 dropdown of U.S. assets into SEP, the company will utilize EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) and distributable cash flow as its primary reporting measures to investors. Directly related to this, Spectra Energy has a new reporting segment, Spectra Energy Partners.  The new segment combines the results of the Liquids segment and the U.S. Transmission segment, excluding Maritimes & Northeast (MNE) Canada.  MNE Canada will now be included with the Western Canadian results. Therefore, going forward, Spectra Energy will report in the following four segments:  Spectra Energy Partners, Distribution, Western Canada Transmission & Processing and Field Services.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use ongoing net income from controlling interests and ongoing diluted EPS as measures to evaluate operations of the company. These measures are non-GAAP financial measures as they represent net income from controlling interests and diluted EPS, adjusted for special items and discontinued operations. Special items represent certain charges and credits which we believe will not be recurring on a regular basis, and discontinued operations do not represent our ongoing core business. We believe that the presentation of ongoing net income and ongoing diluted EPS provide useful information to investors, as it allows them to more accurately compare our ongoing performance across periods. The most directly comparable GAAP measures for ongoing net income from controlling interests and ongoing diluted EPS are net income from controlling interests and diluted EPS.

The primary performance measure used by us to evaluate segment performance is segment earnings from continuing operations (both operating and non-operating) before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization (EBITDA). We consider segment EBITDA, which is the GAAP measure used to report segment results, to be a good indicator of each segment's operating performance from its continuing operations as it represents the results of our segments' operations before depreciation and amortization without regard to financing methods or capital structures. Our segment EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because other companies may not calculate EBITDA in the same manner.

We also use ongoing segment EBITDA and Other EBITDA (net costs) as measures of performance. Ongoing segment and Other EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures as they represent reported segment and Other EBITDA adjusted for special items. We believe that the presentation of ongoing segment and Other EBITDA provides useful information to investors, as they allow investors to more accurately compare a segment's or Other's ongoing performance across periods. The most directly comparable GAAP measures for ongoing segment or Other EBITDA are reported segment or Other EBITDA.

We have also presented segment earnings from continuing operations before interest and income taxes (EBIT), a non-GAAP financial measure, as an additional measure of segment performance to assist users' transition to our new EBITDA segment performance measure.  EBIT was previously our primary performance measure used to evaluate segment performance. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for EBIT is EBITDA.

We have also presented Distributable Cash Flow, which is a non-GAAP financial measure.  We believe that the presentation of Distributable Cash Flow provides useful information to investors as it represents the cash generation capabilities of the company to support dividend growth. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for Distributable Cash Flow is net income.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.  These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because other companies may not calculate these measures in the same manner.
