USA Compression Partners, LP Reports Third Quarter 2017 Results and Updates 2017 Outlook

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 7, 2017-- USA Compression Partners, LP (NYSE: USAC) (“USA Compression” or the “Partnership”) announced today its financial and operating results for the third quarter of 2017. Net income was $4.8 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $0.6 million for the second quarter of 2017 and a net loss of $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2016. Net cash provided by operating activities was $33.0 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $34.0 million for the second quarter of 2017 and $36.1 million for the third quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA was $40.8 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $36.7 million for the second quarter of 2017 and $34.6 million for the third quarter of 2016. Distributable Cash Flow was $30.8 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $27.1 million for the second quarter of 2017 and $27.2 million for the third quarter of 2016.

“During the third quarter, USA Compression experienced continued growth and overall improved market conditions, with contract compression service revenues up 8% over the second quarter and average revenue generating horsepower increasing over 5%, or over 80,000 horsepower,” said Eric D. Long, USA Compression’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Continued customer activity driven by new-build infrastructure projects and a strategic focus on redeploying idle equipment led to increased fleet utilization which is back to near record levels. When coupled with increasing monthly service fees, we saw increased gross operating margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow quarter-over-quarter. We expect to take delivery of approximately 45,000 horsepower of very large horsepower units during the last quarter of 2017 to fulfill contracted customer needs. Looking forward, we have made commitments to take delivery of approximately 150,000 horsepower throughout 2018, all of which consist of very large horsepower units that are already committed to specific customers. As expected, the improved market backdrop helped drive improved leverage and coverage metrics for the quarter.”

Average revenue generating horsepower was 1,548,656 for the third quarter of 2017, compared to 1,465,401 for the second quarter of 2017 and 1,356,423 for the third quarter of 2016. Average revenue per revenue generating horsepower per month was $15.13 for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $14.95 for the second quarter of 2017 and $15.35 for the third quarter of 2016.

Revenues were $72.8 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $66.0 million for the second quarter of 2017 and $61.1 million for the third quarter of 2016. Gross operating margin was $49.4 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $44.4 million for the second quarter of 2017 and $42.2 million for the third quarter of 2016. Gross operating margin as a percentage of total revenues was 67.8% for the third quarter of 2017, compared to 67.3% for the second quarter of 2017 and 69.1% for the third quarter of 2016. Operating income was $11.5 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $6.7 million for the second quarter of 2017 and $3.2 million for the third quarter of 2016.

Expansion capital expenditures were $26.7 million, maintenance capital expenditures were $3.5 million and cash interest expense, net was $6.0 million for the third quarter of 2017.

On October 19, 2017, the Partnership announced a cash distribution of $0.525 per unit on its common units. This third quarter distribution corresponds to an annualized distribution rate of $2.10 per unit. The distribution will be paid on November 10, 2017 to unitholders of record as of the close of business on October 30, 2017. USA Compression Holdings, LLC, the owner of approximately 40.2% of the Partnership’s outstanding limited partner interests, elected to reinvest 20% of this distribution with respect to its units pursuant to the Partnership’s Distribution Reinvestment Plan (the “DRIP”). For the third quarter of 2017, the Partnership’s Distributable Cash Flow Coverage Ratio was 0.92x and Cash Coverage Ratio was 1.01x.

(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 is 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 88.6%, 85.1% and 79.5% for the quarters ended September 30, 2017, June 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016, respectively. Average horsepower utilization based on revenue generating horsepower and fleet horsepower was 88.4%, 84.3% and 78.8% for the quarters ended September 30, 2017, June 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016, 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 (“Non-GAAP”) financial measures. For the definition of each measure, see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

Liquidity and Credit Facility

As of September 30, 2017, the Partnership was in compliance with all covenants under its $1.1 billion revolving credit facility. As of September 30, 2017, the outstanding balance under the revolving credit facility, which matures in 2020, was $752.0 million.

Full-Year 2017 Outlook

USA Compression is updating its full-year 2017 guidance as follows:

  • Net income range of $11.0 million to $16.0 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 $152.0 million to $157.0 million; and
  • Distributable Cash Flow range of $115.0 million to $120.0 million.

More information is available at usacompression.com.

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.

Management views Adjusted EBITDA as one of its primary management tools, 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. 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 to make 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 U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“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, 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, 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 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 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, 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 maintenance capital expenditures.

Distributable Cash Flow should not be considered as 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, 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 such measure allows management, investors and others to compare basic cash flows the Partnership generates (prior to any retained cash reserves established 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 be paid to the Partnership’s general partner and incentive distribution rights (“IDRs”) in respect of such period, divided by distributions declared to limited partner unitholders in respect of such period. Cash Coverage Ratio is defined as Distributable Cash Flow less cash distributions to be paid to the Partnership’s general partner and IDRs in respect of such period, divided by cash distributions expected to be paid to limited partner 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 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 2017 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.
