EQT Midstream Partners Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

EQT Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: EQM), an EQT Corporation company, today announced second quarter 2013 financial and operating results. Net income for the quarter totaled $17.9 million and adjusted EBITDA was $23.4 million. Distributable cash flow was $21.1 million for the quarter. Adjusted operating income was $3.9 million, or 24% higher than the same quarter last year. The non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled in the Non-GAAP Disclosures section below.

Additional Highlights:

  • Acquired Sunrise Pipeline from EQT Corporation (EQT)
  • Announced an increase in quarterly cash distribution to $0.40 per unit, $0.03 or 8% higher than the first quarter
  • Increasing adjusted EBITDA guidance for 2013 to between $113 - $118 million
  • Increasing distributable cash flow guidance for 2013 to between $95 - $100 million
  • Completed new interconnect adding 300 BBtu per day of transmission capacity

EQT Midstream Partners, LP (Partnership) closed its initial public offering (IPO) on July 2, 2012. Results for periods prior to the IPO are attributable to its predecessor, Equitrans, LP (Equitrans).

The Partnership had a capital lease with EQT for the lease of the Sunrise Pipeline (Sunrise), and operated the pipeline as part of its transmission and storage system. Revenues and expenses associated with Sunrise have been included in the Partnership’s financial statements since Sunrise was turned in line in July 2012. Prior to the Sunrise acquisition, monthly lease payments to EQT offset the impact on the Partnership’s distributable cash flow; therefore, second quarter 2013 results are discussed on an adjusted basis, excluding Sunrise. The revenues and expenses associated with Sunrise are found in the reconciliation table in the Non-GAAP Disclosures section below. The lease payment, which totaled $8.3 million in the second quarter, did not have a net positive or negative impact on distributable cash flow. The lease was terminated on July 22, 2013 in connection with the Sunrise acquisition.
