USD Partners LP Announces Second Quarter 2018 Results
Houston, TX - USD Partners LP (NYSE: USDP) (the “Partnership”) announced today its operating and financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018. Financial highlights with respect to the second quarter of 2018 include the following:
Generated Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities of $11.5 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $15.0 million and Distributable Cash Flow of $12.2 million
Reported Net Income of $6.7 million
Increased quarterly cash distribution to $0.3550 per unit ($1.42 per unit on an annualized basis), representing an increase of 4.4% over the second quarter of 2017
Ended quarter with $203.9 million of available liquidity and distribution coverage of approximately 1.3x

“We are proud to announce another successful quarter at the Partnership. During the quarter, the Partnership announced the execution of an early extension with one of its investment grade customers at the Hardisty Terminal as well as the thirteenth consecutive increase of its quarterly distribution, which was supported by strong distribution coverage of approximately 1.3x,” said Dan Borgen, the Partnership’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our customers’ interest in negotiating extended, long-term commitments at Hardisty well in advance of their existing contract expirations strongly validates our strategic commercial vision, and we look forward to updating the market with continued progress in the near future.”
Recent Commercial Developments
On June 26, 2018, the Partnership announced that it had entered into a multi-year renewal and extension of approximately 25% of the capacity at its Hardisty rail terminal with one of its existing investment grade customers. The renewal contains consistent take-or-pay terms with minimum monthly payments and rates that exceed those of the original terminalling services agreement.
As previously mentioned, customer activity at the Hardisty origination terminal has increased substantially over the last several months. Current market demand for the services provided at the Hardisty terminal exceeds the available capacity, as substantially all of the terminal’s capacity was previously contracted by customers under multi-year agreements through mid-2019 or mid-2020. As a result, the Partnership’s sponsor is evaluating a potential expansion to meet customer demand. The Partnership is also actively negotiating with current customers to extend the terms of their existing take-or-pay agreements.
On June 7, 2018, USD Group LLC (“USDG”) and the Partnership announced that USDG had executed a five-year, take-or-pay terminalling services agreement with a high quality refiner customer. The agreement is for trans-loading capacity at the Hardisty rail terminal with an expected start date in late 2018. This new agreement could support the construction of additional capacity at the Hardisty terminal pursuant to USDG’s existing development rights.

Second Quarter 2018 Liquidity, Operational and Financial Results
Substantially all of the Partnership’s cash flows are generated from multi-year, take-or-pay terminalling services agreements related to its crude oil terminals, which include minimum monthly commitment fees. The Partnership’s customers include major integrated oil companies, refiners and marketers, the majority of which are investment-grade rated.
The Partnership’s results during the second quarter of 2018 relative to the same quarter in 2017 were primarily influenced by additional revenues and costs related to the commencement of operations at the Stroud terminal in October 2017 and the conclusion of customer agreements at the Partnership’s San Antonio facility in May 2017 and its Casper terminal in August 2017. In addition, as a result of a substantial increase in customer activity at its Hardisty terminal, the Partnership incurred additional operating costs during the second quarter of 2018.
Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities increased by 21% relative to the second quarter of 2017, primarily due to the timing of receipts and payments on accounts receivable, accounts payable and deferred revenue balances.
Adjusted EBITDA decreased by 3% and Distributable Cash Flow increased by 2% relative to the second quarter of 2017.
Net income for the quarter decreased by 22% as compared to the second quarter of 2017, primarily as a result of a decrease in the Partnership’s estimated benefit from income taxes of approximately $1.4 million.
As of June 30, 2018, the Partnership had total available liquidity of $203.9 million, including $8.9 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents and undrawn borrowing capacity of $195.0 million on its $400.0 million senior secured credit facility, subject to continued compliance with financial covenants. The Partnership is in compliance with its financial covenants and has no maturities under its senior secured credit facility until October 2019.
On July 27, 2018, the Partnership declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.3550 per unit ($1.42 per unit on an annualized basis), which represents growth of 0.7% relative to the first quarter of 2018 and 4.4% relative to the second quarter of 2017. The distribution is payable on August 14, 2018, to unitholders of record at the close of business on August 7, 2018.
Effective January 1, 2018, the Partnership adopted the requirements of Accounting Standards Update 2014-09, or ASC 606, which provides a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers.  The Partnership adopted ASC 606 by applying the full retrospective approach, resulting in the restatement of prior period financial statements to comply with the new standard.
Second Quarter 2018 Conference Call Information
The Partnership will host a conference call and webcast regarding second quarter 2018 results at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time (10:00 a.m. Central Time) on Tuesday, August 7, 2018.

About USD Partners LP
USD Partners LP is a fee-based, growth-oriented master limited partnership formed in 2014 by US Development Group, LLC (“USDG”) to acquire, develop and operate midstream infrastructure and complementary logistics solutions for crude oil, biofuels and other energy-related products. The Partnership generates substantially all of its operating cash flows from multi-year, take-or-pay contracts with primarily investment grade customers, including major integrated oil companies and refiners. The Partnership’s principal assets include a network of crude oil terminals that facilitate the transportation of heavy crude oil from Western Canada to key demand centers across North America. The Partnership’s operations include railcar loading and unloading, storage and blending in on-site tanks, inbound and outbound pipeline connectivity, truck transloading, as well as other related logistics services. In addition, the Partnership provides customers with leased railcars and fleet services to facilitate the transportation of liquid hydrocarbons and biofuels by rail.
USDG, which owns the general partner of USD Partners LP, is engaged in designing, developing, owning, and managing large-scale multi-modal logistics centers and energy-related infrastructure across North America. USDG solutions create flexible market access for customers in significant growth areas and key demand centers, including Western Canada, the U.S. Gulf Coast and Mexico. Among other projects, USDG is currently pursuing the development of a premier energy logistics terminal on the Houston Ship Channel with capacity for substantial tank storage, multiple docks (including barge and deepwater), inbound and outbound pipeline connectivity, as well as a rail terminal with unit train capabilities.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Partnership defines Adjusted EBITDA as Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities adjusted for changes in working capital items, interest, income taxes, foreign currency transaction gains and losses, and other items which do not affect the underlying cash flows produced by the Partnership’s businesses. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP, supplemental financial measure used by management and external users of the Partnership’s financial statements, such as investors and commercial banks, to assess:
the Partnership’s liquidity and the ability of the Partnership’s businesses to produce sufficient cash flows to make distributions to the Partnership’s unitholders; and
the Partnership’s ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures.
The Partnership defines Distributable Cash Flow, or DCF, as Adjusted EBITDA less net cash paid for interest, income taxes and maintenance capital expenditures. DCF does not reflect changes in working capital balances.





usdpartnerslogoa18.jpg

DCF is a non-GAAP, supplemental financial measure used by management and by external users of the Partnership’s financial statements, such as investors and commercial banks, to assess:
the amount of cash available for making distributions to the Partnership’s unitholders;
the excess cash flow being retained for use in enhancing the Partnership’s existing business; and
the sustainability of the Partnership’s current distribution rate per unit.
The Partnership believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and DCF in this press release provides information that enhances an investor's understanding of the Partnership’s ability to generate cash for payment of distributions and other purposes. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA and DCF is Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities. Adjusted EBITDA and DCF should not be considered alternatives to Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities or any other measure of liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and DCF exclude some, but not all, items that affect Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities and these measures may vary among other companies. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA and DCF may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
