Aug 05, 2015, 07:31 ET from Dominion Midstream Partners

RICHMOND, Va., Aug. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Dominion Midstream Partners (NYSE: DM) reported unaudited net income attributable to DM of $17.6 million, or $0.26 per limited partner unit for the three months ended June 30, 2015.  Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) was $19.9 million and distributable cash flow was $19.3 million for the quarter.

Results include Dominion Carolina Gas Transmission (DCGT) which was acquired from Dominion Resources on April 1, 2015.

Dominion Midstream uses adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow as the primary performance measurement of its earnings and results for public communications with analysts and investors.  Dominion Midstream also uses adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow internally for budgeting, reporting to the Board of Directors and other purposes. Management believes adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow provide a more meaningful representation of the company's financial performance.  

QUARTERLY DISTRIBUTION On July 17, the board of directors declared a quarterly distribution of $0.1875 per unit, payable Aug. 14, 2015, to unit holders of record at the close of business on Aug. 4, 2015.
