Crestwood Announces Fourth Quarter and Year-End 2015

Financial and Operating Results and 2016 Outlook

HOUSTON, TEXAS, February 23, 2016 –

Crestwood Equity Partners LP (NYSE: CEQP) (“Crestwood Equity” or “Crestwood”) reported today its financial and operating results for the full-year and three months ended December 31, 2015 and provide 2016 outlook.

Full-year and Fourth Quarter 2015 Highlights1

 

    Full-year 2015 Adjusted EBITDA of $527.4 million, compared to $495.9 million in fiscal 2014; Fourth quarter 2015 Adjusted EBITDA of $118.9 million, compared to $132.7 million in the fourth quarter 2014

 

    Full-year 2015 net loss of $2.3 billion, compared to a net loss of $10.4 million in fiscal 2014. Net loss for the full-year 2015 and fourth quarter 2015 includes non-cash charges for impairments of goodwill and long-lived assets of $2.2 billion and $1.3 billion, respectively. These impairments were largely attributed to increased discount rates and adjustments to Crestwood’s volume and revenue outlook which were triggered by the decline in commodity prices and corresponding decline in Crestwood’s unit price since 2014

 

    Full-year 2015 distributable cash flow of $361.5 million, compared to $356.6 million in fiscal 2014, resulting in a full-year 2015 cash distribution coverage ratio of approximately 1.0x; Fourth quarter 2015 distributable cash flow of $71.9 million, compared to $97.4 million in fourth quarter 2014, resulting in a fourth quarter 2015 coverage ratio of approximately 0.8x

 

    Full-year 2015 operating and maintenance (“O&M”) and general and administrative (“G&A”) expenses were reduced by $26.4 million, or 9% from fiscal 2014; Fourth quarter 2015 O&M and G&A expenses were reduced by $11.7 million, or 14% from fourth quarter 2014. These amounts exclude costs incurred during 2015 to achieve these cost reductions

 

    In March 2015, Crestwood enhanced its credit profile by pricing $700 million in senior notes at 6.25% due 2023 and redeemed all $350 million existing 7.75% senior notes due 2019. In September 2015, Crestwood entered into an amended and restated $1.5 billion revolving credit facility in connection with the simplification merger; Crestwood has no senior notes maturing until 2020

 

    In September 2015, completed merger between Crestwood Equity and Crestwood Midstream Partners LP (“CMLP” or “Crestwood Midstream”), with CMLP unitholders receiving 2.75 Crestwood Equity units for each CMLP unit owned and elimination of Incentive Distribution Rights (“IDRs”)

 

    Declared fourth quarter 2015 cash distribution of $1.375 per common unit, or $5.50 per common unit on an annualized basis, paid on February 12, 2016 to unitholders of record as of February 5, 2016

Management Commentary
