Exterran Holdings And Exterran Partners Report Fourth-Quarter And Full-Year 2011 Results

Exterran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:EXH) and Exterran Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ:EXLP) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2011.

Exterran Holdings, Inc. Financial Results

Net loss from continuing operations attributable to Exterran stockholders for the fourth quarter 2011 was $8.6 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, excluding a $48.6 million valuation allowance recorded against the deferred tax asset in Brazil and pretax charges totaling $12.2 million principally comprised of restructuring charges. Net loss from continuing operations attributable to Exterran stockholders for the fourth quarter 2011 included pretax income of $13.8 million related to non-income tax based tax receivables in Brazil that we determined were realizable. The valuation allowance did not impact our cash flows, liquidity position, or compliance with debt covenants. Net loss from continuing operations attributable to Exterran stockholders, excluding charges, for the third quarter 2011 was $30.4 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, and net loss from continuing operations attributable to Exterran stockholders, excluding charges, for the fourth quarter 2010 was $32.0 million, or $0.51 per diluted share.

Exterran Holdings reported a net loss attributable to Exterran stockholders for the fourth quarter 2011 of $66.6 million, or $1.06 per diluted share, compared to a net loss attributable to Exterran stockholders for the third quarter 2011 of $216.0 million, or $3.44 per diluted share, and a net loss attributable to Exterran stockholders for the fourth quarter 2010 of $118.0 million, or $1.90 per diluted share.

Revenue was $702.9 million for the fourth quarter 2011, compared to $704.5 million for the third quarter 2011 and $615.8 million for the fourth quarter 2010. EBITDA, as adjusted (as defined below), was $118.8 million for the fourth quarter 2011, compared to $99.7 million for the third quarter 2011 and $99.3 million for the fourth quarter 2010.

“Exterran Holdings recorded improved operating performance and increased fabrication backlog levels in the fourth quarter. We continue to see solid demand in North America, particularly in liquids rich and shale gas areas, although uncertainties remain due to relatively low natural gas prices. International markets remain challenging, however we are encouraged by our recently announced contract awards in the Middle East, Bolivia and Mexico,” said Brad Childers, Exterran Holdings’ President and Chief Executive Officer.

“As was the case last year, the first quarter of 2012 is expected to be the low point of the year with revenues expected to be somewhat lower than first-quarter 2011 levels. We are implementing several initiatives to improve our profitability and cash flow and to reduce Exterran parent debt levels over the remainder of 2012 and beyond. We are committed to improving our overall performance and creating value for our stockholders.”

Profit Improvement Program

To enhance its competitive position, in 2011 Exterran embarked on a multi-year plan to improve the profitability of its operations. Exterran’s profitability initiatives are expected to benefit all of its business segments and geographies. As the largest provider of compression services in the world, Exterran intends to use its scale to achieve meaningful cost savings in its operations which it believes will provide better value to its customers. Exterran is also focused on increasing productivity and optimizing its processes in its core lines of business. By making its systems and processes more efficient, Exterran expects to lower its internal costs of doing business and improve its profitability.

As an initial step in implementing a profit improvement plan, in the fourth quarter of 2011 Exterran implemented a workforce cost reduction program across all of its business segments. A vast majority of the identified workforce reductions were completed in the fourth quarter 2011. Exterran is expected to generate annual savings from the workforce cost reduction program of approximately $20 million to $25 million, with approximately $10 million to $15 million of those savings within selling, general and administrative expense. Restructuring charges incurred during the fourth quarter 2011 and full year 2011 totaled $8.7 million and $11.6 million, respectively, related to consulting services and termination benefits. Exterran Holdings is currently expected to incur additional charges with respect to the profit improvement initiative of approximately $3.1 million in 2012.

Exterran Partners, L.P. Financial Results

Exterran Partners reported revenue of $83.3 million for the fourth quarter 2011, compared to $84.4 million for the third quarter 2011 and $68.4 million for the fourth quarter 2010.

Distributable cash flow (as defined below) totaled $24.5 million for the fourth quarter 2011, compared to $25.7 million for the third quarter 2011 and $20.4 million for the fourth quarter 2010.

“Exterran Partners continued its solid operating performance during the fourth quarter including increased operating horsepower of 25,000. We increased our cash distribution for the sixth consecutive quarter, and distributable cash flow covered distributions by 1.25 times. We remain committed to our growth strategies and increasing distributions to unitholders over time,” said Childers, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Exterran Partners’ managing general partner.

For the fourth quarter of 2011, Exterran Partners’ quarterly cash distribution was $0.4925 per limited partner unit, or $1.97 per limited partner unit on an annualized basis. The fourth-quarter 2011 distribution was $0.005 higher than the third-quarter 2011 distribution of $0.4875 per limited partner unit and $0.02 higher than the fourth-quarter 2010 distribution of $0.4725 per limited partner unit.

With respect to Exterran Holdings, EBITDA, as adjusted, a non-GAAP measure, is defined as loss from continuing operations plus income taxes, interest expense (including debt extinguishment costs and gain or loss on termination of interest rate swaps), depreciation and amortization expense, impairment charges, non-cash gains or losses from foreign currency exchange rate changes recorded on intercompany obligations, merger and integration expenses, restructuring charges and other charges. In the third quarter of 2011, the definition of EBITDA, as adjusted, was revised to add back non-cash gains or losses from foreign currency exchange rate changes recorded on intercompany obligations. This adjustment was made as management uses the resulting EBITDA, as adjusted, as a supplemental measure to review current period operating performance. In addition, this adjustment is similar to the EBITDA definition used for credit facility covenant calculations. This change was also made to prior periods included herein for comparative purposes.

With respect to Exterran Partners, EBITDA, as further adjusted, a non-GAAP measure, is defined as net income (loss) plus income taxes, interest expense (including debt extinguishment costs and gain or loss on termination of interest rate swaps), depreciation and amortization expense, impairment charges, other charges, and non-cash selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) costs and any amounts by which cost of sales and SG&A costs are reduced as a result of caps on these costs contained in the omnibus agreement to which Exterran Holdings and Exterran Partners are parties (the “Omnibus Agreement”), which amounts are treated as capital contributions from Exterran Holdings for accounting purposes.

With respect to Exterran Partners, distributable cash flow, a non-GAAP measure, is defined as net income (loss) plus depreciation and amortization expense, impairment charges, non-cash SG&A costs, interest expense and any amounts by which cost of sales and SG&A costs are reduced as a result of caps on these costs contained in the Omnibus Agreement, which amounts are treated as capital contributions from Exterran Holdings for accounting purposes, less cash interest expense (excluding amortization of deferred financing fees and costs incurred to early terminate interest rate swaps) and maintenance capital expenditures, and excluding gains/losses on asset sales and other charges.

With respect to Exterran Holdings, Gross Margin, a non-GAAP measure, is defined as total revenue less cost of sales (excluding depreciation and amortization expense).

With respect to Exterran Partners, Gross Margin, as adjusted, a non-GAAP measure, is defined as total revenue less cost of sales (excluding depreciation and amortization expense) plus any amounts by which cost of sales are reduced as a result of caps on these costs contained in the Omnibus Agreement, which amounts are treated as capital contributions from Exterran Holdings for accounting purposes.

(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 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 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.
