Targa Resources Partners LP And Targa Resources Corp. Report Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results And Provide Update On Financial Outlook

The Company's distributable cash flow for the third quarter 2013 was $35.5 million compared to $24.1 million in total declared dividends for the quarter (see the section of this release entitled "Targa Resources Corp. - Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for a discussion of distributable cash flow and reconciliations of this measure to its most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP).

Targa Resources Partners – Financial Outlook Update

For the full year 2013, assuming current commodity prices, the Partnership expects Adjusted EBITDA to be near the lower end of the guidance range of $595 million to $655 million.

The Partnership estimates that Adjusted EBITDA for 2014 will be approximately $740 million to $760 million. This estimate assumes commodity prices in 2014 of $3.75 per MMBtu for natural gas, $95.00 per barrel for crude oil and average prices for the Partnership's NGLs of $0.90 per gallon. Under these assumptions, a $0.05 per gallon change in the price of NGLs would correspondingly change 2014 Adjusted EBITDA by approximately 2%. The Partnership expects distribution coverage to be approximately 1.0x in 2014.

Based on the estimated range of Adjusted EBITDA for 2014 and assuming generally stable broader market conditions, the Partnership expects to be in a position to increase distributions per common unit by 7% to 9% in 2014 compared to 2013, subject to approval of the board of directors of the Partnership's general partner.

These initial estimates for full year 2013, and for 2014, are preliminary estimates and, accordingly, remain subject to changes that could be significant. See the section of this release entitled "Targa Resources Partners - Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for a discussion of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation of this measure to its most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Growth Projects Update

The Partnership has announced approximately $1.9 billion in growth capital investments that will be placed in service in 2013 through 2014, with approximately 72% of the total for projects expected to provide primarily fee-based margin. The Partnership estimates that total growth capital expenditures for 2014 will be approximately $590 million.
