Management Commentary

“Despite record commodity price volatility and challenging industry conditions in 2016, Crestwood delivered on all of the strategic initiatives we laid out to investors at the beginning of the year,” stated Robert G. Phillips, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Crestwood’s general partner. “With strong fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $126 million, Crestwood delivered full-year 2016 Adjusted EBITDA of $456 million and achieved the upper end of our 2016 guidance range, resulting in a full-year distribution coverage ratio of 1.8x and a year-end leverage ratio of 3.7x. Also during 2016, we favorably resolved longstanding producer issues on our Barnett and PRB Niobrara gathering systems, reduced our outstanding debt by $1 billion, reduced operating and G&A expenses by another 15%, adjusted our common unit distribution to retain excess cash flow for reinvestment in new projects during 2016 and 2017, and repositioned Crestwood for long-term growth through the Nautilus system with Shell, and the formation of strategic partnerships with Con Edison in the Northeast and with First Reserve in the fast growing Delaware Permian.”

 

1  Please see non-GAAP reconciliation table included at the end of the press release. Financial results reflect Crestwood’s contribution of its Northeast Storage and Transportation assets to Stagecoach Gas Services JV (“Stagecoach”) and its 35% share of Stagecoach’s earnings beginning June 2016.

 

2  Net loss for the fourth quarter 2016 and 2015 includes $228.2 million and $2.2 billion of non-cash goodwill and long-lived asset impairment charges resulting from decreasing cash flows due to the weakness in commodity prices and increased discount rates used to determine the fair value of its assets during those periods.
