Access Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE:ACMP) today announced financial results for the 2012 fourth quarter and full year. The Partnership’s adjusted EBITDA for the 2012 fourth quarter was $119.0 million, up $9.0 million, or 8.2%, from 2011 fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA of $110.0 million. The 2012 fourth quarter results do not include any revenue associated with minimum volume commitments (MVC) as compared to $17.4 million of revenue associated with MVC recognized in the 2011 fourth quarter. After eliminating the 2011 MVC impact, the Partnership’s 2012 fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA was up 22.7%. The 2012 fourth quarter net income attributable to the Partnership totaled $24.3 million, a decrease of $42.0 million, or 63.3%, from the 2011 fourth quarter due to interest and depreciation expense related to growth capital investments and transaction costs associated with the CMO acquisition. The 2012 fourth quarter financial results include twelve days of contribution from the assets acquired in the CMO transaction that closed on December 20, 2012.
The Partnership’s 2012 full year adjusted EBITDA was $477.9 million, an increase of $128.4 million, or 36.7%, compared to 2011 full year adjusted EBITDA of $349.5 million. Net income attributable to the Partnership for the 2012 full year was $178.5 million, down $15.8 million, or 8.1%, compared to 2011 full year net income of $194.3 million due to interest and depreciation expense related to growth capital investments and transaction costs associated with the CMO acquisition.
Adjusted distributable cash flow (Adjusted DCF) for the 2012 fourth quarter totaled $82.1 million, an increase of $3.1 million, or 3.9%, compared to the 2011 fourth quarter and resulted in a coverage ratio of 0.98. The 2012 fourth quarter coverage ratio was adversely impacted by Partnership equity issued in December to fund the CMO transaction, which will more fully contribute to financial performance starting in 2013. Adjusted DCF for the 2012 full year was $340.1 million and resulted in a full year coverage ratio of 1.23. Financial terms are defined on pages three and four of this release.
