Western Gas Partners, LP Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP MeasuresBelow are reconciliations of the Partnership’s Distributable cash flow (non-GAAP) to net income (loss) attributable to Western Gas Partners, LP (GAAP) and Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) to net income (loss) attributable to Western Gas Partners, LP (GAAP) and net cash provided by operating activities (GAAP), as required under Regulation G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Management believes that the Partnership’s Distributable cash flow, Adjusted EBITDA and Coverage ratio are widely accepted financial indicators of the Partnership’s financial performance compared to other publicly traded partnerships and are useful in assessing the Partnership’s ability to incur and service debt, fund capital expenditures and make distributions. Distributable cash flow, Adjusted EBITDA and Coverage ratio, as defined by the Partnership, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Therefore, the Partnership’s Distributable cash flow, Adjusted EBITDA and Coverage ratio should be considered in conjunction with net income and other performance measures (as applicable), such as operating income (loss) or cash flows from operating activities.
