USA Compression Partners, LP Reports First Quarter 2019 Results; Confirms 2019 Outlook

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 7, 2019-- USA Compression Partners, LP (NYSE: USAC) (“USA Compression” or the “Partnership”) announced today its financial and operating results for the first quarter 2019.

First Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Total revenues were $170.7 million.
  • Net income was $6.6 million.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $47.8 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $101.4 million.
  • Distributable Cash Flow was $54.9 million.
  • Announced cash distribution of $0.525 per common unit.
  • Distributable Cash Flow Coverage was 1.16x.
  • Cash Coverage was 1.16x.

“The first quarter represented a great start to the year for USA Compression. Having now owned the CDM assets for a full 12 months, we’ve successfully completed the integration and continue to see the benefits from the combination as we operate the combined company across our diverse geographical footprint,” commented Eric D. Long, USA Compression’s President & Chief Executive Officer. “We experienced an increase in both utilization and pricing to near record levels, reflecting continued strong market dynamics and our focus on high-quality customers operating in active regions. Continued strong operating margins - Gross Operating Margin Percentage of 66.6% and Adjusted EBITDA Percentage of 59.4% - demonstrate the stability of our large horsepower-focused business model and reflect the successful achievement of the full cost synergies we expected with the CDM transaction.”

He continued, “The market dynamics from which we’ve benefitted over the last several quarters have continued through the first quarter and into the second quarter. U.S. natural gas production is strong, as is the demand for that natural gas, both domestically and abroad, which is driving the demand for our compression services. We remain focused on deploying capital in a prudent manner which, combined with attractive margins, should keep USA Compression positioned well within our industry. Our commitments for new large horsepower deliveries for the remainder of 2019 are approximately 103,000 horsepower, allowing us to meet customer demand without any planned equity issuance. The remainder of the year looks to continue many of the positive macro trends we have been experiencing lately.”

Expansion capital expenditures were $33.0 million, maintenance capital expenditures were $6.9 million and cash interest expense, net was $27.2 million for the first quarter of 2019.

On April 18, 2019, the Partnership announced a first quarter cash distribution of $0.525 per common unit, which corresponds to an annualized distribution rate of $2.10 per common unit. The distribution will be paid on May 10, 2019 to common unitholders of record as of the close of business on April 29, 2019. For the first quarter of 2019, the Partnership’s Distributable Cash Flow Coverage Ratio was 1.16x and Cash Coverage Ratio was 1.16x.

On April 2, 2018, the Partnership completed the acquisition of the CDM compression business (the “USA Compression Predecessor”) from Energy Transfer Partners, L.P., now Energy Transfer Operating, L.P. (the “CDM Acquisition”), and Energy Transfer Equity, L.P., now Energy Transfer LP, completed the acquisition of the Partnership’s general partner, USA Compression GP, LLC (collectively, the “Transactions”).

For accounting purposes, the USA Compression Predecessor is the acquirer in the business combination because its ultimate parent company obtained control of the Partnership through the acquisition of the Partnership’s general partner. Accordingly, any financial and operational results provided by the Partnership in filings subsequent to the closing of the Transactions will reflect (i) the financial and operational results of the USA Compression Predecessor for all periods prior to the closing of the Transactions and (ii) the financial and operational results of the combined businesses, including the impact of the Transactions, for all periods subsequent to the closing of the Transactions. Therefore, the first quarter 2019 results are not comparable to certain prior periods.

Full-Year 2019 Outlook

USA Compression is confirming its full-year 2019 guidance as follows:

  • Net income range of $20.0 million to $60.0 million;
  • A forward-looking estimate of 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 and Distributable Cash Flow;
  • Adjusted EBITDA range of $380.0 million to $420.0 million; and
  • Distributable Cash Flow range of $180.0 million to $220.0 million.

More information is available at usacompression.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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

Management views Adjusted EBITDA as one of its primary tools for evaluating the Partnership’s results of operations, 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, prior year and budget. The Partnership defines EBITDA as net income (loss) before net interest expense, depreciation and amortization expense, and income tax expense (benefit). The Partnership defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus impairment of compression equipment, impairment of goodwill, interest income on capital lease, unit-based compensation expense, severance charges, certain transaction fees, loss (gain) on disposition of assets and other. Adjusted EBITDA is used as a supplemental financial measure by 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 pay 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.

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. 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 (loss), cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity 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 is defined as revenue less cost of operations, exclusive of depreciation and amortization expense. Management believes that gross operating margin is useful as a supplemental measure of the Partnership’s operating profitability. 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 (loss), its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, 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, management believes that it is important to consider operating income (loss) determined under GAAP, as well as gross operating margin, to evaluate the Partnership’s operating profitability. A reconciliation of gross operating margin to operating income (loss) is provided in this news release.

Distributable Cash Flow is defined as net income (loss) plus non-cash interest expense, non-cash income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization expense, unit-based compensation expense, impairment of compression equipment, impairment of goodwill, certain transaction fees, severance charges, loss (gain) on disposition of assets, proceeds from insurance recovery and other, less distributions on the Partnership’s Series A Preferred Units (“Preferred Units”) and maintenance capital expenditures.

Distributable Cash Flow should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income (loss), operating income (loss), 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, our Distributable Cash Flow as presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Management believes Distributable Cash Flow is an important measure of operating performance because it allows management, investors and others to compare basic cash flows the Partnership generates (after distributions on the Partnership’s Preferred Units but prior to any retained cash reserves established by the Partnership’s general partner and the effect of the Distribution Reinvestment Plan (“DRIP”)) to the cash distributions the Partnership expects to pay its common unitholders.

Distributable Cash Flow Coverage Ratio is defined as Distributable Cash Flow divided by distributions declared to common unitholders in respect of such period. Cash Coverage Ratio is defined as Distributable Cash Flow divided by cash distributions expected to be paid to common unitholders in respect of such period, after taking into account the non-cash impact of the DRIP. 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 common 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 2019 fiscal year. A forward-looking estimate of net cash provided by operating activities and reconciliations of the forward-looking estimates of Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow to net cash provided by operating activities are 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 and Distributable Cash Flow.

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) and net cash provided by operating activities reconciled to Distributable Cash Flow, Distributable Cash Flow Coverage Ratio and Cash Coverage Ratio.
