Compressco Partners, L.P. Announces 2013 Financial Guidance

OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Compressco Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ: GSJK) today announced 2013 financial guidance of $128 to $137 million in revenues and $25 to $29 million in pretax profit.

Ronald J. Foster, President of Compressco Partners, remarked, "Our estimated mid-range 2013 guidance of $132.5 million in revenues and $27 million in pretax profit represents a sequential improvement over anticipated 2012 results, and is driven by our estimates of increased demand for and utilization of our compression-based production enhancement services in the markets we serve. During much of 2012, we invested growth capital in anticipation of increasing demand forecasted for 2013. We expect that this strategy will result in accelerated growth, particularly in Latin America. We expect that 2013 revenues from our Latin American operations will exceed 2012 revenues. In the U.S., we continue to see strong demand for unconventional applications in oil, liquids and associated gas for both our GasJack ® and V-Jack platforms, which allows us to "get on the well" earlier than with our conventional wellhead applications. We have also seen domestic demand for conventional applications stabilize as commodity prices have also stabilized. In addition, we anticipate that good demand for our conventional applications will continue in the European and Asian Pacific markets in which we operate. Finally, we expect to continue to benefit from cost reductions taken during 2012 and the ongoing implementation of supply chain strategies.

"We anticipate total capital expenditures of approximately $20 million and depreciation expense of approximately $16 million during 2013. Along with a strong focus on organic growth, we are analyzing M&A opportunities that could expand our product offerings. We would expect any acquisition to be accretive to our results.

"Given our improved financial results in 2012, we increased our quarterly distribution to $0.42 per outstanding unit for the fourth quarter of 2012. On the basis of this financial guidance, we expect that we can achieve quarterly distributions of at least $0.42 in 2013. Additional distribution increases during 2013 will be dependent on continued strong demand for our services in the markets we serve and our ability to successfully execute our growth strategies."
