Management Commentary

“Crestwood delivered another quarter of strong results in the first quarter 2018 driven by solid operations and continued volume growth across our gathering and processing assets, resulting in a 12% increase in year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA, and very healthy leverage and coverage ratios of 3.9x and 1.25x, respectively,” stated Robert G. Phillips, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Crestwood’s general partner. “Crestwood’s first quarter results outperformed internal expectations as favorable commodity prices continued to encourage producer investment around our core assets and enhanced well recoveries outperformed Crestwood’s type-curve assumptions, which led to stronger volumes, despite harsh winter weather conditions that impacted field operations in the Bakken and Powder River Basin during the quarter.”

Mr. Phillips continued, “Our first quarter results keep us on-track to achieve our guidance targets in 2018. We continue to prudently invest in growth capital projects around our core assets that will begin to materially grow Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow in the second half of 2018 and full-year 2019. We remain committed to financing these projects with excess cash flow and our existing revolving credit facility, eliminating any need to access the equity markets in 2018.”
