Exterran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:EXH) and Exterran Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ:EXLP) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2010.

Exterran Holdings, Inc. Financial Results

Exterran Holdings reported a net loss attributable to Exterran stockholders for the fourth quarter 2010 of $118.0 million, or $1.90 per diluted share, compared to net loss attributable to Exterran stockholders for the third quarter 2010 of $18.0 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, and net income attributable to Exterran stockholders for the fourth quarter 2009 of $22.6 million, or $0.37 per diluted share.

Net loss from continuing operations attributable to Exterran stockholders for the fourth quarter 2010 was $32.0 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, excluding non-cash pretax charges that totaled $142.5 million, including a $142.2 million impairment charge related primarily to idle compressor units that were previously part of our North America contract operations business. The impairment charge did not impact our cash flows, liquidity position, or compliance with debt covenants. Net loss from continuing operations attributable to Exterran stockholders, excluding charges, was $15.2 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, for the third quarter 2010 and $16.9 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2009.

Revenue was $615.8 million for the fourth quarter 2010, compared to $625.6 million for the third quarter 2010 and $654.7 million for the fourth quarter 2009. EBITDA, as adjusted (as defined below), was $103.8 million for the fourth quarter 2010, compared to $109.7 million for the third quarter 2010 and $139.6 million for the fourth quarter 2009.

Ernie L. Danner, Exterran Holdings’ President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Fourth quarter highlights included a modest improvement in the operating performance of our North America contract operations business and the generation of significant cash flow and further reduction of our debt balances. We are cautiously optimistic about a continuing gradual improvement in the demand for our oil and gas production-related products and services in 2011 in North America, where relatively low natural gas prices have resulted in a shift in our growth activities to areas with a natural gas liquids component. Internationally, overall inquiry levels are solid although we have not yet seen a return to the higher level of bookings for contract operations and fabrication projects that we have experienced historically and expect in the future. Overall for 2011, our goal is to achieve an increase of 5% or more over 2010 levels in both revenue and EBITDA, as adjusted, as we pursue growth opportunities primarily associated with North America shale plays and international energy infrastructure development.

“We own a majority interest of Exterran Partners including the general partner interest, and over time we intend to offer the remainder of Exterran Holdings’ U.S. contract operations business to Exterran Partners. In 2011, we expect to use the proceeds from these transactions and operating cash flow to fund investments in growth projects and fleet assets and expect that cash flow in excess of our needs will allow us to reduce Exterran Holdings’ debt balances (exclusive of Exterran Partners’ debt) by $250 million to $300 million during the year.”

Exterran Partners, L.P. Financial Results

Exterran Partners reported revenue of $68.4 million for the fourth quarter 2010, compared to $62.7 million for the third quarter 2010 and $47.1 million for the fourth quarter 2009. Net loss was $23.5 million for the fourth quarter 2010, or $0.73 per diluted limited partner unit, compared to net income of $0.1 million, or a loss of $0.01 per diluted limited partner unit, for the third quarter 2010, and net income of $3.3 million, or $0.13 per diluted limited partner unit, for the fourth quarter 2009.

Net income for the fourth quarter 2010 was $1.2 million, or $0.02 per diluted limited partner unit, excluding a $24.7 million non-cash fleet impairment charge. The impairment charge did not impact Exterran Partners’ cash flows, liquidity position, or compliance with debt covenants.

Exterran Partners’ EBITDA, as further adjusted (as defined below), totaled $31.4 million for the fourth quarter 2010, compared to $28.0 million for the third quarter 2010 and $21.6 million for the fourth quarter 2009. Distributable cash flow (as defined below) totaled $20.4 million for the fourth quarter 2010, compared to $19.3 million for the third quarter 2010 and $13.2 million for the fourth quarter 2009.

“Fourth quarter performance benefitted from increased operating horsepower during the quarter as a result of increased demand for contract operations services and a full quarter contribution from the August 2010 acquisition of assets representing an additional 255,000 horsepower of compression capacity from Exterran Holdings,” commented Mr. Danner, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Exterran Partners’ managing general partner. “We are committed to our growth strategies and continuing to increase distributions to unitholders over time.”

For the fourth quarter of 2010, Exterran Partners’ quarterly cash distribution was $0.4725 per limited partner unit, or $1.89 per limited partner unit on an annualized basis. The fourth quarter 2010 distribution was $0.005 higher than the third quarter 2010 distribution of $0.4675 per limited partner unit and $0.01 higher than the fourth quarter 2009 distribution of $0.4625 per limited partner unit.

The cash distribution received by Exterran Holdings based upon its common unit ownership and general partner interest in Exterran Partners was approximately $9.5 million for the fourth quarter 2010.

(1) Management believes disclosure of EBITDA, as adjusted, and Gross Margin, both non-GAAP measures, provides useful information to investors because, when viewed with our GAAP results and accompanying reconciliations, they provide a more complete understanding of our performance than GAAP results alone. Management uses EBITDA, as adjusted, and Gross Margin as supplemental measures to review current period operating performance, comparability measures and performance measures for period to period comparisons. In addition, EBITDA, as adjusted, is used by management as a valuation measure.

(1) Management believes disclosure of EBITDA, as adjusted, diluted net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to Exterran stockholders per common share, excluding charges, and Gross Margin, non-GAAP measures, provides useful information to investors because, when viewed with our GAAP results and accompanying reconciliations, they provide a more complete understanding of our performance than GAAP results alone. Management uses EBITDA, as adjusted, diluted net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to Exterran stockholders per common share, excluding charges, and Gross Margin as supplemental measures to review current period operating performance, comparability measures and performance measures for period to period comparisons. In addition, EBITDA, as adjusted, is used by management as a valuation measure.

(1) Management believes disclosure of EBITDA, as further adjusted, and Gross Margin, as adjusted, both non-GAAP measures, provides useful information to investors because, when viewed with our GAAP results and accompanying reconciliations, they provide a more complete understanding of our performance than GAAP results alone. Management uses EBITDA, as further adjusted, and Gross Margin, as adjusted, as supplemental measures to review current period operating performance, comparability measures and performance measures for period to period comparisons. In addition, EBITDA, as further adjusted, is used by management as a valuation measure.
 
(2) Distributable cash flow, a non-GAAP measure, is a significant liquidity metric used by management to compare basic cash flows generated by us to the cash distributions we expect to pay our partners. Using this metric, management can quickly compute the coverage ratio of estimated cash flows to planned cash distributions.
