(1) Horsepower utilization is calculated as (i) the sum of (a) revenue generating horsepower; (b) horsepower in the Partnership's fleet that is under contract but is not yet generating revenue; and (c) horsepower not yet in the Partnership's fleet that is under contract, not yet generating revenue and subject to a purchase order, divided by (ii) total available horsepower less idle horsepower that is under repair. Horsepower utilization based on revenue generating horsepower and fleet horsepower at each applicable period end was 81.6%, 83.2% and 85.2% for the quarters ended March 31, 2016, December 31, 2015 and March 31, 2015, respectively. Average horsepower utilization based on revenue generating horsepower and fleet horsepower was 82.4%, 83.4% and 86.7% for the quarters ended March 31, 2016, December 31, 2015 and March 31, 2015, respectively.

(2) Calculated as the average of the result of dividing the contractual monthly rate for all units at the end of each month in the period by the sum of the revenue generating horsepower at the end of each month in the period.

(3) Gross operating margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are all non-U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") financial measures. For the definition of each measure, see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.

(4) Distributable Cash Flow for the quarters ended March 31, 2016, December 31, 2015 and March 31, 2015 was previously presented as Adjusted Distributable Cash Flow. The definition of Distributable Cash Flow is identical to the definition of Adjusted Distributable Cash Flow previously presented. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section below for the definition of Distributable Cash Flow.

First Quarter 2016 Financial and Operating Performance

Revenues in the first quarter of 2016 rose 2.1% to $66.4 million as compared to $65.0 million for the first quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA rose 2.4% to $38.4 million in the first quarter of 2016 as compared to $37.5 million for the first quarter of 2015. Distributable Cash Flow increased 8.0% to $31.9 million in the first quarter of 2016, compared to $29.5 million for the first quarter of 2015. Net income decreased 25.5% to $8.5 million for the first quarter of 2016 as compared to $11.5 million for the first quarter of 2015. Operating income decreased 10.9% to $13.8 million for the first quarter of 2016 as compared to $15.5 million for the first quarter of 2015. Net cash provided by operating activities increased 51.3% to $22.0 million in the first quarter of 2016 as compared to $14.5 million in the first quarter of 2015.

"We are pleased with the results of our first quarter 2016. Despite the challenging energy market, we were able to generate more than sufficient distributable cash flow to maintain our distribution. This continues to demonstrate the stability of our natural gas infrastructure oriented asset base," said Eric D. Long, USA Compression's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Further, we proactively amended our credit facility to provide us greater flexibility in managing our balance sheet, leverage and distribution policy through the current market environment. In addition, we are affirming our 2016 outlook previously released."

"In this environment, we are remaining very disciplined with regards to our capital spending, and at present have only 15,400 horsepower on order for delivery in 2016," he said. "During the quarter, we did not enter into any additional commitments to purchase new units, and we continue to expect to make capital expenditures of $40-50 million for the year."

Average revenue generating horsepower increased 1.8% to 1,410,574 for the first quarter of 2016 as compared to 1,385,908 for the first quarter of 2015. Average revenue per revenue generating horsepower per month decreased 0.8% to $15.72 for the first quarter of 2016 as compared to $15.85 for the first quarter of 2015.

Gross operating margin remained relatively flat at $45.5 million for the first quarter of 2016 as compared to $45.8 million for the first quarter of 2015. Gross operating margin as a percentage of total revenues was 68.6% for the first quarter of 2016 compared to 70.4% in the first quarter of 2015.

Expansion capital expenditures were $14.6 million, maintenance capital expenditures were $1.4 million and cash interest expense, net was $4.6 million for the first quarter of 2016.

On April 21, 2016, the Partnership announced a cash distribution of $0.525 per unit on its common units. This first quarter distribution corresponds to an annualized distribution rate of $2.10 per unit. The distribution will be paid on May 13, 2016 to unitholders of record as of the close of business on May 3, 2016. USA Compression Holdings, LLC, the owner of approximately 41% of the Partnership's outstanding limited partner interests, elected to reinvest 80% of this distribution with respect to its units pursuant to the Partnership's Distribution Reinvestment Plan (the "DRIP"). For the first quarter of 2016, the Distributable Cash Flow Coverage Ratio was 1.10x and the Cash Coverage Ratio was 1.68x.

Liquidity and Credit Facility

On March 18, 2016, the Partnership entered into a Third Amendment to its revolving credit facility, which amended the credit agreement to, among other things, (i) modify the leverage ratio covenant to be (A) 5.95 to 1.0 as of the end of the respective fiscal quarters ending June 30, 2016 and September 30, 2016, (B) 5.75 to 1.0 as of the end of the fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2016, (C) 5.50 to 1.0 as of the end of the respective fiscal quarters ending March 31, 2017 and June 30, 2017, (D) 5.25 to 1.0 as of the end of the respective fiscal quarters ending September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2017 and (E) 5.00 to 1.0 thereafter, and (ii) amend certain other provisions of the credit agreement, all as more fully set forth in the Third Amendment.

As of March 31, 2016, we were in compliance with all covenants and the outstanding balance under the Partnership's $1.1 billion revolving credit facility was approximately $743 million. The facility matures in 2020.

Conversion of Subordinated Units

Upon the payment of the quarterly distribution on February 12, 2016, the Partnership satisfied the earnings and distribution tests contained in its partnership agreement for the conversion of all 14,048,588 outstanding subordinated units into common units. As a result, all of the subordinated units converted to common units on a one-for-one basis on February 16, 2016.

Full-Year 2016 Outlook

USA Compression is confirming the following full-year 2016 guidance:
  • Adjusted EBITDA range of $138 million to $153 million; and
  • Distributable Cash Flow range of $102 million to $117 million; and
  • Expansion capital expenditure range of $40 million to $50 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release includes the non- GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA, gross operating margin, Distributable Cash Flow, Distributable Cash Flow Coverage Ratio and Cash Coverage Ratio.

The Partnership's management views Adjusted EBITDA as one of its primary financial measures in evaluating the results of the Partnership's business, and the Partnership tracks this item on a monthly basis both as an absolute amount and as a percentage of revenue compared to the prior month, year-to-date and prior year and to budget. The Partnership defines EBITDA as net income (loss) before net interest expense, depreciation and amortization expense, and income taxes. The Partnership defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus impairment of compression equipment, impairment of goodwill, interest income, unit-based compensation expense, severance charges, certain transaction fees and loss (gain) on sale of assets and other. Adjusted EBITDA is used as a supplemental financial measure by the Partnership's management and external users of its financial statements, such as investors and commercial banks, to assess:

  • the financial performance of the Partnership's assets without regard to the impact of financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis of the Partnership's assets;
  • the viability of capital expenditure projects and the overall rates of return on alternative investment opportunities;
  • the ability of the Partnership's assets to generate cash sufficient to make debt payments and distributions; and
  • the Partnership's operating performance as compared to those of other companies in its industry without regard to the impact of financing methods and capital structure.

The Partnership's management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because, when viewed with GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliations, it provides a more complete understanding of the Partnership's performance than GAAP results alone. The Partnership's management also believes that external users of its financial statements benefit from having access to the same financial measures that management uses in evaluating the results of the Partnership's business.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income (loss), operating income, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP, as measures of operating performance and liquidity. Moreover, Adjusted EBITDA as presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Gross operating margin, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as revenue less cost of operations, exclusive of depreciation and amortization expense. The Partnership's management believes that gross operating margin is useful as a supplemental measure of the Partnership's performance. Gross operating margin is impacted primarily by the pricing trends for service operations and cost of operations, including labor rates for service technicians, volume and per unit costs for lubricant oils, quantity and pricing of routine preventative maintenance on compression units and property tax rates on compression units. Gross operating margin should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, operating income or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, gross operating margin as presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Because the Partnership capitalizes assets, depreciation and amortization of equipment is a necessary element of its costs. To compensate for the limitations of gross operating margin as a measure of the Partnership's performance, the Partnership's management believes that it is important to consider operating income determined under GAAP, as well as gross operating margin, to evaluate the Partnership's operating profitability.

Distributable Cash Flow, a non-GAAP measure, is defined as net income (loss) plus non-cash interest expense, non-cash income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, unit-based compensation expense, severance charges, impairment of compression equipment, impairment of goodwill, certain transaction fees and loss (gain) on sale of assets and other, less maintenance capital expenditures. The definition of Distributable Cash Flow is identical to the definition of Adjusted Distributable Cash Flow previously presented.

The Partnership's management believes Distributable Cash Flow is an important measure of operating performance because such measure allows management, investors and others to compare basic cash flows the Partnership generates (prior to the establishment of any retained cash reserves by the Partnership's general partner and the effect of the DRIP) to the cash distributions the Partnership expects to pay its unitholders.

Distributable Cash Flow Coverage Ratio, a non-GAAP measure, is defined as Distributable Cash Flow less cash distributions to the Partnership's general partner and incentive distribution rights ("IDRs"), divided by distributions declared to limited partner unitholders for the period. Cash Coverage Ratio is defined as Distributable Cash Flow less cash distributions to the Partnership's general partner and IDRs divided by cash distributions paid to limited partner unitholders, after taking into account the non-cash impact of the DRIP. The Partnership's management believes Distributable Cash Flow Coverage Ratio and Cash Coverage Ratio are important measures of operating performance because they allow management, investors and others to gauge the Partnership's ability to pay cash distributions to limited partner unitholders using the cash flows the Partnership generates. The Partnership's Distributable Cash Flow Coverage Ratio and Cash Coverage Ratio as presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

This news release also contains a forward-looking estimate of Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow projected to be generated by the Partnership in its 2016 fiscal year. A reconciliation of the forward-looking estimates of Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow to net cash provided by operating activities is not provided because the items necessary to estimate net cash provided by operating activities, in particular the change in operating assets and liabilities, are not accessible or estimable at this time. The Partnership does not anticipate the changes in operating assets and liabilities to be material, but changes in accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued liabilities and deferred revenue could be significant, such that the amount of net cash provided by operating activities would vary substantially from the amount of projected Adjusted EBITDA.

See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for Adjusted EBITDA reconciled to net income (loss) and net cash provided by operating activities, and net income (loss) reconciled to Distributable Cash Flow, Distributable Cash Flow Coverage Ratio and Cash Coverage Ratio.
