Energy Transfer Partners Reports Second Quarter Results

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. (NYSE: ETP) today reported its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA for Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. ("ETP") for the three months ended June 30, 2013 totaled $1.07 billion, an increase of $427 million over the same period last year. Distributable Cash Flow attributable to the partners of ETP for the three months ended June 30, 2013 totaled $442 million, an increase of $126 million over the same period last year. Income from continuing operations for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $404 million, an increase of $276 million over the same period last year.


Adjusted EBITDA for ETP for the six months ended June 30, 2013 totaled $2.03 billion, an increase of $889 million over the same period last year. Distributable Cash Flow attributable to the partners of ETP for the six months ended June 30, 2013 totaled $841 million, an increase of $265 million over the same period last year. Income from continuing operations for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $806 million, a decrease of $411 million compared to the same period last year primarily due to the recognition of a $1.06 billion gain as a result of the contribution of ETP's Propane Business in January 2012.

The increases in Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow were primarily due to strategic acquisitions in 2012, including Sunoco, Inc. ("Sunoco") and ownership interests in Citrus Corp ("Citrus"), Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. ("Sunoco Logistics"), and ETP Holdco Corporation ("Holdco"). ETP has also placed more than $2.5 billion in growth projects into service over the last twelve months that are now generating earnings and cash flow.

ETP previously reported Distributable Cash Flow only on a consolidated basis. As a result of ETP's recent acquisition of the 60% interest in Holdco that was owned by Energy Transfer Equity, L.P. ("ETE") in April 2013 and the ETE/ETP exchange transaction announced today, ETP has revised the methodology to calculate Distributable Cash Flow to make it easier to understand and more transparent. Effective June 30, 2013, ETP has revised its non-GAAP measures to include Distributable Cash Flow attributable to the partners of ETP. ETP considers Distributable Cash Flow attributable to the partners of ETP to be a useful measure as it more accurately depicts the cash flows available to be distributed to ETP's partners, whereas Distributable Cash Flow on a consolidated basis includes cash flows for which a portion would be distributable to noncontrolling interests. The supplemental information included herein provides both measures as well as a reconciliation of both measures to the GAAP measure of net income.

ETP's key accomplishments during the second quarter of 2013 include the following:

  • ETP acquired from ETE its 60% interest in Holdco for approximately 49.5 million ETP common units and $1.4 billion in cash, less $68 million of closing adjustments.
  • Southern Union Company ("Southern Union") contributed its interest in Southern Union Gathering Company, LLC to Regency Energy Partners LP ("Regency"), a subsidiary of ETE, in exchange for cash and Regency common and Class F units.
  • ETP's subsidiaries, Sunoco Logistics and Lone Star NGL LLC, announced that long-term, fee-based agreements have been executed with an anchor tenant to move forward with a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) export/import project.
  • ETP placed into service a new 200 MMcf/d cryogenic processing plant at its Godley processing facility in Johnson County, Texas.
  • ETP exchanged approximately $1.09 billion of Southern Union's outstanding senior notes for new ETP senior notes in June 2013.

An analysis of ETP's segment results and other supplementary data is provided after the financial tables shown below. ETP has scheduled a conference call for 8:30 a.m. Central Time, Thursday, August 8, 2013 to discuss the second quarter 2013 results. The conference call will be broadcast live via an internet web cast which can be accessed through www.energytransfer.com and will also be available for replay on ETP's web site for a limited time.

Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are non-GAAP financial measures used by industry analysts, investors, lenders, and rating agencies to assess the financial performance and the operating results of ETP's fundamental business activities and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, income from operations, cash flows from operating activities, or other GAAP measures. A table reconciling Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow with appropriate GAAP financial measures is included in the summarized financial information included in this release. Beginning with the quarter ended December 31, 2012 and applied retroactively to all periods presented, ETP has revised its calculation of Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow.

(1) In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, amounts previously reported for interim periods in 2012 have been revised to reflect the retrospective consolidation of Southern Union into ETP as a result of the Holdco Transaction as the transfer of Southern Union into Holdco met the definition of a transaction between entities under common control. Thus, Southern Union was retroactively consolidated beginning March 26, 2012, the date that ETE completed its merger with Southern Union.
