Atlas Pipeline Partners, L.P. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Results

-- Adjusted EBITDA for fourth quarter 2012 was $64.1 million, a 30% increase year-over-year

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Atlas Pipeline Partners, L.P. (NYSE: APL) ("APL", "Atlas Pipeline", or the "Partnership") today reported adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA"), of $64.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, driven by a continued increase in volumes across the Partnership's gathering and processing systems.  Processed natural gas volumes averaged 1,002 million cubic feet per day ("MMCFD"), a 67% increase over the fourth quarter of 2011.  Distributable Cash Flow was $40.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, or $0.72 per average common limited partner unit, compared to $36.0 million for the prior year fourth quarter.  These results include one month of operations for the Partnership's newly acquired Arkoma assets, which were purchased on December 20, 2012 and have an effective date as of December 1, 2012.  Net loss was $6.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, which in accordance with GAAP includes eleven days of earnings from the Arkoma assets, compared with net loss of $5.3 million for the prior year fourth quarter.

For the full year 2012, Adjusted EBITDA was $220.2 million, compared to full year 2011 Adjusted EBITDA of $181.0 million, a 22% increase from prior year.  Net income was $68.1 million for the full year 2012, compared to net income of $295.4 million for the prior year, which included a $256.3 million gain on the sale of the Partnership's remaining interest in the Laurel Mountain joint venture.  For the full year 2012, Distributable Cash Flow was $146.0 million, an increase of approximately 12% over the full year 2011 Distributable Cash Flow of $129.9 million.  Distributable Cash Flow per average common limited partner unit for the full year 2012 was $2.69.

Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are non-GAAP financial measures, which are reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP measures in the tables included at the end of this news release.  The Partnership believes these measures provide a more accurate comparison of the operating results for the periods presented.

On January 23, 2013, the Partnership declared a distribution for the fourth quarter of 2012 of $0.58 per common limited partner unit to holders of record on February 7, 2013, which was paid on February 14, 2013.  This distribution represents Distributable Cash Flow coverage per limited partner unit of approximately 1.0x on a fully diluted basis for the fourth quarter of 2012, however coverage would have been 1.1x pro forma if the operating results for the Arkoma assets had been included for the entire quarter.

"This has been a very successful year for the Partnership.  Even with weaker natural gas and NGL pricing, not having full NGL takeaway at our two largest systems, and various 3rd party disruptions of operations both upstream and downstream, we still managed to increase our distribution three out of four quarters, paying out 16% more in cash flow than we did for 2011.  Additionally, in the face of those headwinds, we managed to expand two out of our three legacy processing systems and purchase a fourth system for $600 million in December, most of which is fixed-fee cash flow, reducing our commodity exposure.  With another legacy expansion coming this spring, coupled with much needed NGL takeaway at our two largest systems, plus the addition of a previously announced expansion at our new Arkoma system, we have plenty of catalysts to take the distribution even higher in 2013 and beyond.  We expect to continue to announce opportunities this year to add to our expanding portfolio of growth and wish to thank all of our supporters in our efforts," stated Eugene Dubay, Chief Executive Officer of the Partnership.

2013 Forecasted Guidance

The Partnership is forecasting Adjusted EBITDA for 2013 between $320 million and $360 million based on current commodity pricing curves for natural gas, natural gas liquids component products, and crude oil.  The resulting forecasted Distributable Cash Flow for 2013 would range from $200 million to $240 million based on the same assumptions.   Based on the Partnership's distribution coverage targets, the forecasted distributions for 2013 would be between $2.50 and $2.60 per limited partner unit.  The Partnership is currently expecting growth capital expenditures for the year to total approximately $350 million, based on previously announced expansion projects, including completion of the Driver and Stonewall facilities, as well as new infrastructure and projected well connections to support further volume growth on our existing systems.  It is important to note that the range of guidance for 2013 is based information that has been publicly announced to date. The Partnership expects to update guidance as future growth projects are announced this year.   The Partnership's management team will address the 2013 outlook on the earnings conference call tomorrow morning. 

These forecasted amounts are based on various assumptions, including, among others, the Partnership's expected cost and timing for completion of its announced capital expenditure program, timing of incremental volumes on its gathering and processing systems, known contract structures, scheduled maintenance of facilities including those of third-parties that impact the Partnership's operations, estimated interest rates, and budgeted operating and general administrative costs.  Management does not forecast certain items, including GAAP revenues, depreciation, amortization, and non-cash changes in derivatives, and therefore is unable to provide forecasted Net Income, a comparable GAAP measure, for the periods presented.  The reconciling items between these non-GAAP measures and Net Income are expected to be similar to those for the current periods presented and are not expected to be significant to the Partnership's cash flows.

Capitalization and Liquidity

The Partnership had total liquidity (cash plus available capacity on its revolving credit facility) of $310.3 million as of December 31, 2012.  Pro forma for the recently completed senior notes offering and tender offer, total liquidity would have been approximately $551 million at December 31, 2012.  Total debt outstanding was $1,179.9 million at December 31, 2012, compared to $524.1 million at December 31, 2011, an increase of $655.8 million.  Based upon total debt outstanding at December 31, 2012, total leverage was approximately 4.5x, including historical earnings from the Arkoma acquisition, and debt to capital was 43%. Total leverage was approximately 4.0x for purposes of calculations under our revolving credit facility.

Risk Management

The Partnership continued enhancement of its risk management portfolio, adding further protection for 2013 through 2015.  As of February 15, 2013, the Partnership has natural gas, natural gas liquids and condensate protection in place for the full years of 2013 and 2014 for approximately 78% and 56%, respectively, of associated margin value (exclusive of ethane).  The Partnership has also added protection into 2015 covering approximately 24% of associated margin value (exclusive of ethane).  Counterparties to the Partnership's risk management activities consist of investment grade commercial banks that are lenders under the Partnership's credit facility, or affiliates of those banks.  A table summarizing our risk management portfolio is included in this release.

Operating Results

The Partnership continues to report record volumes, and with the addition of the Arkoma assets, is now processing, on average, over 1.0 BCFD of natural gas. Gross margin from operations was $79.5 million for the fourth quarter 2012 and $278.1 for the full year 2012, compared to $69.6 million and $264.9 million for the prior year periods, respectively.  Gross margin, a non-GAAP financial measure, includes natural gas and liquids sales and transportation, processing and other fees, less purchased product costs and non-cash gains (or losses) included in these items.  The higher gross margin for the quarter was primarily due to the increased volumes, partially offset by decreased NGL prices.  The gross margin for the quarter does not include approximately $3.9 million of realized derivative settlement gains, which are excluded in the calculation of gross margin, compared to $1.7 million realized derivative settlement losses excluded from gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2011. 

WestTX System

The WestTX system's average natural gas processed volume was 271.6 MMCFD and 249.2 MMCFD for the fourth quarter and full year 2012, respectively, compared to 220.5 MMCFD and 196.4 MMCFD for prior year comparable periods.  Increased volumes are primarily due to increased production in the Spraberry and Wolfberry Trends of the Permian basin.  Average NGL production volumes were 34,913 barrels per day ("BPD") and 32,314 BPD for the fourth quarter and full year 2012, respectively, an 8.5% and 11.2% increase from prior year comparable periods.  The Partnership expects processed volumes on this system to continue to increase as producers continue to pursue their drilling plans over the coming years.  The construction of the previously announced Driver plant, which will increase processing capacity by 200 MMCFD, is expected to be completed by the end of the first quarter or beginning of the second quarter of 2013. 

WestOK System

The WestOK system had average natural gas processed volume of 412.7 MMCFD and 348.0 MMCFD for the fourth quarter and full year 2012, respectively, a 49.7% and 36.8% increase from the prior year comparable periods.  Average NGL production was 16,576 BPD and 14,505 BPD, respectively, for the fourth quarter and full year 2012, respectively, a 15.5% increase and 6.4% increase from the prior year comparable periods, due to increased production on the gathering systems and the start-up of the Waynoka II plant in September 2012.    The Partnership expects volumes to continue to increase as producers in Oklahoma and Kansas, continue to add to the system via development in the oil-rich Mississippian Limestone formation. 

Velma System

The Velma system's average natural gas processed volume was 106.6 MMCFD and 114.4 MMCFD for the fourth quarter and full year 2012, respectively, a 1.4% and 16.6% increase from the prior year comparable periods.  The increase is primarily due to additional production gathered on the Madill to Velma pipeline system from continued producer activity in the liquids-rich portion of the Woodford Shale.  Average NGL production increased to 12,493 BPD and 13,850 BPD for the fourth quarter and full year 2012, respectively, up approximately 3.4% and 21.1% compared to the prior year comparable periods, due to the increased processed volumes.  In June 2012, the Partnership completed the previously announced plans to expand the Velma system by adding a 60 MMCFD cryogenic plant (the "V-60 plant"), which supports the additional volumes from XTO Energy, Inc ("XTO").  Volumes on the Velma system were lower than the third quarter of 2012 primarily due to XTO diverting gas to a third party during the period.  The Partnership expects these volumes to return in 2013 and has a fee-based commitment from XTO on the V-60 plant that commences in mid-2013. 

Arkoma System

On December 20, 2012, the Partnership acquired 100% of the equity interests held by Cardinal Midstream in three wholly-owned subsidiaries for $598.5 million in cash, including preliminary purchase price adjustments.  The assets of these companies include gas gathering, processing and treating facilities in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas, including a 60% interest in a joint venture with MarkWest Energy Partners, L.P., known as Centrahoma Processing, LLC ("Centrahoma"). The Arkoma gathering and processing system is located in the Arkoma Basin in southeastern Oklahoma and had average natural gas processed volumes of 211.0 MMCFD and produced 16,138 BPD of NGLs during the effective period it was owned by the Partnership. Centrahoma is in the process of constructing a new processing facility, the Stonewall plant, which is expected to be complete in early 2014, with anticipated initial processing capacity of 120 MMCFD. 

Corporate and Other

Net of deferred financing costs, interest expense increased to $14.1 million and $41.8 million for the fourth quarter and full year 2012, respectively, up 135.0% and 54.2% as compared with the fourth quarter and full year 2011.  This increase was due to financing the Partnership's $600 million capital expenditure program during 2011 and 2012, including the issuance of senior unsecured notes in November 2011, as well as the issuance of additional senior unsecured notes in September and December 2012.

(1)

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Management of the Partnership believes EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow provide additional information for evaluating the Partnership's ability to make distributions to its common unitholders and the general partner, among other things.  These measures are widely-used by commercial banks, investment bankers, rating agencies and investors in evaluating performance relative to peers and pre-set performance standards.  Adjusted EBITDA is also similar to the Consolidated EBITDA calculation utilized for the Partnership's financial covenants under its credit facility, with the exception that Adjusted EBITDA (i) includes EBITDA from the discontinued operations related to the sale of the Partnership's 49% interest in Laurel Mountain; (ii) includes other non-cash items specifically excluded under the credit facility; and (iii) excludes projected revenues from certain capital expansions allowed by the financial covenants under the credit facility. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and, accordingly, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, operating income, or cash flows from operating activities in accordance with GAAP

(2)

Includes the non-cash impact of commodity price movements on pipeline linefill inventory and non-cash compensation

(3)

Net proceeds remaining from the sale of Laurel Mountain after the repayment of the amount outstanding on our revolving credit facility, redemption of our 8.125% Senior Notes due 2015 and purchase of certain 8.75% Senior Notes due 2018

(4)

Unrecognized economic impact of acquisition represents the estimated Adjusted EBITDA associated with acquisitions for the period from the effective date to the closing date.  These earnings are recorded as an adjustment to the purchase price in accordance with GAAP

The Internet of Things (IoT) is going to require a new way of thinking and of developing software for speed, security and innovation. This requires IT leaders to balance business as usual while anticipating for the next market and technology trends. Cloud provides the right IT asset portfolio to help today’s IT leaders manage the old and prepare for the new. Today the cloud conversation is evolving from private and public to hybrid. This session will provide use cases and insights to reinforce the value of the network in helping organizations to maximize their company’s cloud experience.
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have spoken with, or attended presentations from, utilities in the United States, South America, Asia and Europe. This session will provide a look at the CREPE drivers for SmartGrids and the solution spaces used by SmartGrids today and planned for the near future. All organizations can learn from SmartGrid’s use of Predictive Maintenance, Demand Prediction, Cloud, Big Data and Customer-facing Dashboards...
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, will discuss the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. The presentation will also discuss how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics to discuss are barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold.
Whether you're a startup or a 100 year old enterprise, the Internet of Things offers a variety of new capabilities for your business. IoT style solutions can help you get closer your customers, launch new product lines and take over an industry. Some companies are dipping their toes in, but many have already taken the plunge, all while dramatic new capabilities continue to emerge. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Reid Carlberg, Senior Director, Developer Evangelism at salesforce.com, to discuss real-world use cases, patterns and opportunities you can harness today.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!

We offer four on-ramps to the Digital Enterprise: alignment through collaborative process analysis; transformation through portfolio management; agility through process automation and integration; and visibility through intelligent business operations and big data.
There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.

The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace. These technological reforms have not only changed computers and smartphones, but are also changing the data processing model for all information devices. In particular, in the area known as M2M (Machine-To-Machine), there are great expectations that information with a new type of value can be produced using a variety of devices and sensors saving/sharing data via the network and through large-scale cloud-type data processing. This consortium believes that attaching a huge number of devic...
