On February 14, 2013, Southcross paid a pro-rated cash distribution of $0.24 per common unit for the three month period ended December 31, 2012. This distribution was Southcross’ first distribution and corresponds to the minimum quarterly distribution of $0.40 per unit, or $1.60 on an annualized basis, pro-rated for the portion of the fourth quarter following the closing of our initial public offering on November 7, 2012.Updated 2013 Financial Guidance Southcross is updating its full year 2013 Adjusted EBITDA guidance and providing Adjusted EBITDA guidance for the fourth quarter of 2013. Southcross expects that fourth quarter 2013 Adjusted EBITDA will range from $14 million to $17 million. Although fourth quarter 2013 guidance is comparable to the Partnership’s previous expectations, due to the combined effects of lower profitability in the first half of the year, reduced NGL prices throughout 2013 and slower expected increases in gas supply volumes, full year 2013 guidance is being reduced from a range of $58 million to $65 million to a range of $42 million to $55 million. Expansion capital expenditures in 2013 are now expected to be between $40 million and $50 million compared to prior guidance of between $100 million and $125 million. Southcross is updating its prior distribution guidance and believes that its distributions over the course of 2013 will meet or exceed the minimum quarterly distribution of $0.40 per unit per quarter.
