Plains All American Pipeline and Plains GP Holdings Report Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2020 Results

HOUSTON, Feb. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (Nasdaq: PAA) and Plains GP Holdings (Nasdaq: PAGP) today reported fourth-quarter and full-year 2020 results and provided an update on other matters, as highlighted below.

Summary Highlights

  • Reported fourth-quarter and full-year 2020 net cash flow from operations of $258 million and $1,514 million, respectively, and a net loss of $28 million and $2,590 million, respectively. Reported full-year net loss incorporates the impact of $3.4 billion of non-cash goodwill and asset impairment charges incurred in the year

  • Delivered fourth-quarter and full-year 2020 Adjusted EBITDA of $559 million and $2,560 million, respectively (full-year results within 1% of original guidance furnished in February of 2020)

  • Completed ~$450 million of assets sales in 2020

  • Reduced full-year 2020 field operating costs and general and administrative expenses by approximately $250 million, or 16%, versus 2019, with expectation for approximately 50% of these cost savings to endure in future years

  • Achieved our annual 20%+ reduction goal in key Safety and Environmental metrics (represents more than a 50% reduction in each of these metrics since 2017 and reflects our best year since formally tracking these metrics)

  • Estimate 2021 Free Cash Flow after distributions of +/- $300 million, or more than $1 billion when including anticipated proceeds from asset sales targeted in 2021

  • Increased 2021 asset sales target to +/- $750 million (+$150 million)

"From almost any perspective, 2020 was an extremely challenging year for the world in general and our industry in particular," stated Willie Chiang, Chairman and CEO of Plains. "Despite the challenges, we capitalized on the opportunity to advance several key initiatives, which accelerated our transition to maximizing free cash flow. The collective result of our actions enabled us to improve our 2020 cash positioning significantly, position the company to generate meaningful free cash flow in 2021 and beyond and activate an equity repurchase program as an additional method of returning cash to equity holders, which we are balancing with our priorities of reducing debt and maintaining an investment-grade balance sheet. We have conviction in the long-term need for crude oil as part of any energy transition and the value of our business and sustainability of our cash flow stream, and we are well positioned to generate a significant level of positive free cash flow after distributions on a multi-year basis going forward."

________________

(1)Estimated impact of divestitures completed during 2019 and 2020, assuming an effective date of January 1, 2019. Divested assets primarily included certain NGL storage terminals and Los Angeles Basin crude oil storage terminals that were previously included in our Facilities segment and the sale of a portion of our interest in a joint venture pipeline that was previously reported in our Transportation segment.


Fourth-quarter 2020 Transportation Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased 15% versus comparable 2019 results due to reductions in tariff volumes in multiple regions resulting from lower crude oil prices, reduced drilling and completion activity and compressed regional basis differentials, partially offset by the benefit of operational cost savings.

Fourth-quarter 2020 Facilities Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased 2% versus comparable 2019 results primarily due to the impact of asset sales and decreased activity at certain of our rail terminals resulting from less favorable market conditions, partially offset by the favorable impact of operational cost savings and increased capacity at certain of our Mid-Continent and Gulf Coast crude oil storage terminals.

Fourth-quarter 2020 Supply and Logistics Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased 98% versus comparable 2019 results due to less favorable crude oil differentials in both the Permian Basin and Canada as well as a less favorable Canadian NGL market due to warmer seasonal weather, partially offset by the benefit of contango-based margin opportunities.

(G)2021 Guidance forecasts are intended to be + / - amounts.

(1)See the section of this release entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Selected Items Impacting Comparability" and the Non-GAAP Reconciliation tables attached hereto for information regarding non-GAAP financial measures and, for the historical 2019 and 2020 periods, their reconciliation to the most directly comparable measures as reported in accordance with GAAP. We do not provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the equivalent GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis as it is impractical to forecast certain items that we have defined as "Selected Items Impacting Comparability" without unreasonable effort, due to the uncertainty and inherent difficulty of predicting the occurrence and financial impact of and the periods in which such items may be recognized. Thus, a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the equivalent GAAP financial measures could result in disclosure that could be imprecise or potentially misleading.

(2)Excludes certain non-cash items impacting interest expense such as amortization of debt issuance costs and terminated interest rate swaps.

(3)Cash distributions paid to our preferred unitholders during 2019 and 2020. 2021(G) reflects the current annualized distribution requirement of $2.10 per Series A preferred unit and the current annualized distribution requirement of $61.25 per Series B preferred unit. Distributions on our Series B preferred units are payable in cash semi-annually in arrears on May 15 and November 15.

(4)Cash distributions per common unit paid during 2019 and 2020. 2021(G) reflects the current annualized distribution rate of $0.72 per common unit.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Selected Items Impacting Comparability

To supplement our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, management uses additional measures known as "non-GAAP financial measures" in its evaluation of past performance and prospects for the future and to assess the amount of cash that is available for distributions, debt repayments, common equity repurchases and other general partnership purposes.

The primary additional measures used by management are earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (including our proportionate share of depreciation and amortization of unconsolidated entities), gains and losses on asset sales and asset impairments, goodwill impairment losses and gains on and impairments of investments in unconsolidated entities, adjusted for certain selected items impacting comparability ("Adjusted EBITDA"), Implied distributable cash flow ("DCF"), Free Cash Flow and Free Cash Flow After Distributions.

Our definition and calculation of certain non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures of other companies. Adjusted EBITDA, Implied DCF and certain other non-GAAP financial performance measures are reconciled to Net Income/(Loss), and Free Cash Flow and Free Cash Flow After Distributions are reconciled to Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities, (the most directly comparable measures as reported in accordance with GAAP) for the historical periods presented in the tables attached to this release, and should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of, our Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying notes. In addition, we encourage you to visit our website at www.plainsallamerican.com (in particular the section under "Financial Information" entitled "Non-GAAP Reconciliations" within the Investor Relations tab), which presents a reconciliation of our commonly used non-GAAP and supplemental financial measures.

Performance Measures

Management believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Implied DCF provides useful information to investors regarding our performance and results of operations because these measures, when used to supplement related GAAP financial measures, (i) provide additional information about our core operating performance and ability to fund distributions to our unitholders through cash generated by our operations and (ii) provide investors with the same financial analytical framework upon which management bases financial, operational, compensation and planning/budgeting decisions. We also present these and additional non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted net income attributable to PAA and basic and diluted adjusted net income per common unit, as they are measures that investors, rating agencies and debt holders have indicated are useful in assessing us and our results of operations. These non-GAAP measures may exclude, for example, (i) charges for obligations that are expected to be settled with the issuance of equity instruments, (ii) gains and losses on derivative instruments that are related to underlying activities in another period (or the reversal of such adjustments from a prior period), gains and losses on derivatives that are related to investing activities (such as the purchase of linefill) and inventory valuation adjustments, as applicable, (iii) long-term inventory costing adjustments, (iv) items that are not indicative of our core operating results and business outlook and/or (v) other items that we believe should be excluded in understanding our core operating performance. These measures may further be adjusted to include amounts related to deficiencies associated with minimum volume commitments whereby we have billed the counterparties for their deficiency obligation and such amounts are recognized as deferred revenue in "Other current liabilities" in our Consolidated Financial Statements. We also adjust for amounts billed by our equity method investees related to deficiencies under minimum volume commitments. All such amounts are presented net of applicable amounts subsequently recognized into revenue. Furthermore, the calculation of these measures contemplates tax effects as a separate reconciling item, where applicable. We have defined all such items as "selected items impacting comparability." Due to the nature of the selected items, certain selected items impacting comparability may impact certain non-GAAP financial measures, referred to as adjusted results, but not impact other non-GAAP financial measures. We do not necessarily consider all of our selected items impacting comparability to be non-recurring, infrequent or unusual, but we believe that an understanding of these selected items impacting comparability is material to the evaluation of our operating results and prospects.

Although we present selected items impacting comparability that management considers in evaluating our performance, you should also be aware that the items presented do not represent all items that affect comparability between the periods presented. Variations in our operating results are also caused by changes in volumes, prices, exchange rates, mechanical interruptions, acquisitions, divestitures, investment capital projects and numerous other factors. These types of variations may not be separately identified in this release, but will be discussed, as applicable, in management's discussion and analysis of operating results in our Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Liquidity Measures

Management also uses the non-GAAP financial measures Free Cash Flow and Free Cash Flow After Distributions to assess the amount of cash that is available for distributions, debt repayments, common equity repurchases and other general partnership purposes. Free Cash Flow is defined as Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities, less Net Cash Used in Investing Activities, which primarily includes acquisition, investment and maintenance capital expenditures, investments in unconsolidated entities and the impact from the purchase and sale of linefill and base gas, net of proceeds from the sales of assets and further impacted by distributions to, contributions from and proceeds from the sale of noncontrolling interests. Free Cash Flow is further reduced by cash distributions paid to our preferred and common unitholders to arrive at Free Cash Flow After Distributions.

Forward-Looking Statements

Except for the historical information contained herein, the matters discussed in this release consist of forward-looking statements that involve certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from results or outcomes anticipated in the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, among other things, the following:

Factors Related Primarily to the COVID-19 Pandemic:

  • further declines in global crude oil demand and crude oil prices that correspondingly lead to a significant reduction of domestic crude oil, natural gas liquids ("NGL") and natural gas production (whether due to reduced producer cash flow to fund drilling activities or the inability of producers to access capital, or both, the unavailability of pipeline and/or storage capacity, the shutting-in of production by producers, government-mandated pro-ration orders, or other factors), which in turn could result in significant declines in the actual or expected volume of crude oil and NGL shipped, processed, purchased, stored, fractionated and/or gathered at or through the use of our assets and/or the reduction of commercial opportunities that might otherwise be available to us;
  • uncertainty regarding the future impacts of COVID-19, which may depend on the development, deployment and effectiveness of vaccines; treatments and testing protocols; mutations of the virus resulting in increased transmissibility or severity of the disease or decreasing the effectiveness of vaccines or treatments; the capacity of our healthcare systems and public health infrastructure to manage current and future outbreaks; and various political and economic restrictions;
  • uncertainty regarding the timing, pace and extent of an economic recovery in the United States and elsewhere, which in turn will likely affect demand for crude oil and therefore the demand for the midstream services we provide and the commercial opportunities available to us;
  • the timing of a return to market conditions that are more conducive to an increase in drilling and production activities in the United States and a resulting increase in demand for the midstream services we provide;
  • the refusal or inability of our customers or counterparties to perform their obligations under their contracts with us (including commercial contracts, asset sale agreements and other agreements), whether justified or not and whether due to financial constraints (reduced creditworthiness, liquidity issues or insolvency), market constraints, legal constraints (including governmental orders or guidance), the exercise of contractual or common law rights that allegedly excuse their performance (such as force majeure or similar claims) or other factors;
  • our inability to perform our obligations under our contracts, whether due to non-performance by third parties, including our customers or counterparties, market constraints, third-party constraints, legal constraints (including governmental orders or guidance), or other factors;
  • disruptions to futures markets for crude oil, NGL and other petroleum products, which may impair our ability to execute our commercial or hedging strategies;

General Factors:

  • the effects of competition, including the effects of capacity overbuild in areas where we operate;
  • negative societal sentiment regarding the hydrocarbon energy industry and the continued development and consumption of hydrocarbons, which could influence consumer preferences and governmental or regulatory actions in ways that adversely impact our business;
  • unanticipated changes in crude oil and NGL market structure, grade differentials and volatility (or lack thereof);
  • environmental liabilities or events that are not covered by an indemnity, insurance or existing reserves;
  • fluctuations in refinery capacity in areas supplied by our mainlines and other factors affecting demand for various grades of crude oil, NGL and natural gas and resulting changes in pricing conditions or transportation throughput requirements;
  • maintenance of our credit rating and ability to receive open credit from our suppliers and trade counterparties;
  • the occurrence of a natural disaster, catastrophe, terrorist attack (including eco-terrorist attacks) or other event that materially impacts our operations, including cyber or other attacks on our electronic and computer systems;
  • our inability to reduce capital expenditures and other costs and expenses and to sustain reduced spending levels to the extent forecasted, whether due to the incurrence of unexpected or unplanned expenditures, third-party claims or other factors;
  • the successful integration and future performance of acquired assets or businesses and the successful operation of joint ventures and joint operating arrangements we enter into from time to time, whether relating to assets operated by us or by third parties;
  • failure to implement or capitalize, or delays in implementing or capitalizing, on investment capital projects, whether due to permitting delays, permitting withdrawals or other factors;
  • shortages or cost increases of supplies, materials or labor;
  • the impact of current and future laws, rulings, governmental regulations, accounting standards and statements, and related interpretations, including legislation or regulatory initiatives that prohibit, restrict or regulate hydraulic fracturing or that prohibit the development of oil and gas resources and the related infrastructure on lands dedicated to our pipelines;
  • tightened capital markets or other factors that increase our cost of capital or limit our ability to obtain debt or equity financing on satisfactory terms to fund additional acquisitions, investment capital projects, working capital requirements and the repayment or refinancing of indebtedness;
  • inability of producers, who have made commitments to our pipelines, to access capital to fund their drilling and completion activities;
  • general economic, market or business conditions (both within the United States and globally and including the potential for a recession or significant slowdown in economic activity levels) and the amplification of other risks caused by volatile financial markets, capital constraints and liquidity concerns;
  • the availability of, and our ability to consummate, divestitures, joint ventures, acquisitions or other strategic opportunities;
  • the use or availability of third-party assets upon which our operations depend and over which we have little or no control;
  • the currency exchange rate of the Canadian dollar;
  • continued creditworthiness of, and performance by, our counterparties, including financial institutions and trading companies with which we do business;
  • inability to recognize current revenue attributable to deficiency payments received from customers who fail to ship or move more than minimum contracted volumes until the related credits expire or are used;
  • non-utilization of our assets and facilities;
  • increased costs, or lack of availability, of insurance;
  • weather interference with business operations or project construction, including the impact of extreme weather events or conditions;
  • the effectiveness of our risk management activities;
  • fluctuations in the debt and equity markets, including the price of our units at the time of vesting under our long-term incentive plans;
  • risks related to the development and operation of our assets, including our ability to satisfy our contractual obligations to our customers; and
  • other factors and uncertainties inherent in the transportation, storage, terminalling and marketing of crude oil, as well as in the storage of natural gas and the processing, transportation, fractionation, storage and marketing of NGL as discussed in the Partnerships' filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

(1)We calculate net income/(loss) allocated to common unitholders based on the distributions pertaining to the current period's net income (whether paid in cash or in-kind). After adjusting for the appropriate period's distributions, the remaining undistributed earnings or excess distributions over earnings, if any, are allocated to common unitholders and participating securities in accordance with the contractual terms of our partnership agreement in effect for the period and as further prescribed under the two-class method.

(2)The possible conversion of our Series A preferred units was excluded from the calculation of diluted net income/(loss) per common unit for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020 and the three months ended December 31, 2019 as the effect was antidilutive.

(3)Our equity-indexed compensation plan awards that contemplate the issuance of common units are considered dilutive unless (i) they become vested only upon the satisfaction of a performance condition and (ii) that performance condition has yet to be satisfied. Equity-indexed compensation plan awards that are deemed to be dilutive are reduced by a hypothetical common unit repurchase based on the remaining unamortized fair value, as prescribed by the treasury stock method in guidance issued by the FASB. For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020, the effect of equity-indexed compensation plan awards was antidilutive.

________________

(1)Certain of our non-GAAP financial measures may not be impacted by each of the selected items impacting comparability.

(2)We use derivative instruments for risk management purposes and our related processes include specific identification of hedging instruments to an underlying hedged transaction. Although we identify an underlying transaction for each derivative instrument we enter into, there may not be an accounting hedge relationship between the instrument and the underlying transaction. In the course of evaluating our results of operations, we identify the earnings that were recognized during the period related to derivative instruments for which the identified underlying transaction does not occur in the current period and exclude the related gains and losses in determining adjusted results. In addition, we exclude gains and losses on derivatives that are related to investing activities, such as the purchase of linefill. We also exclude the impact of corresponding inventory valuation adjustments, as applicable.

(3)We carry crude oil and NGL inventory that is comprised of minimum working inventory requirements in third-party assets and other working inventory that is needed for our commercial operations. We consider this inventory necessary to conduct our operations and we intend to carry this inventory for the foreseeable future. Therefore, we classify this inventory as long-term on our balance sheet and do not hedge the inventory with derivative instruments (similar to linefill in our own assets). We treat the impact of changes in the average cost of the long-term inventory (that result from fluctuations in market prices) and write-downs of such inventory that result from price declines as a selected item impacting comparability.

(4)We, and certain of our equity method investments, have certain agreements that require counterparties to deliver, transport or throughput a minimum volume over an agreed upon period. Substantially all of such agreements were entered into with counterparties to economically support the return on capital expenditure necessary to construct the related asset. Some of these agreements include make-up rights if the minimum volume is not met. We, or our equity method investees, record a receivable from the counterparty in the period that services are provided or when the transaction occurs, including amounts for deficiency obligations from counterparties associated with minimum volume commitments. If a counterparty has a make-up right associated with a deficiency, we, or our equity method investees, defer the revenue attributable to the counterparty's make-up right and subsequently recognize the revenue at the earlier of when the deficiency volume is delivered or shipped, when the make-up right expires or when it is determined that the counterparty's ability to utilize the make-up right is remote. We include the impact of amounts billed to counterparties for their deficiency obligation, net of applicable amounts subsequently recognized into revenue or equity earnings, as a selected item impacting comparability. We believe the inclusion of the contractually committed revenues associated with that period is meaningful to investors as the related asset has been constructed, is standing ready to provide the committed service and the fixed operating costs are included in the current period results.

(5)Our total equity-indexed compensation expense includes expense associated with awards that will or may be settled in units and awards that will or may be settled in cash. The awards that will or may be settled in units are included in our diluted net income per unit calculation when the applicable performance criteria have been met. We consider the compensation expense associated with these awards as a selected item impacting comparability as the dilutive impact of the outstanding awards is included in our diluted net income per unit calculation, as applicable, and the majority of the awards are expected to be settled in units. The portion of compensation expense associated with awards that are certain to be settled in cash is not considered a selected item impacting comparability.

(6)During the periods presented, there were fluctuations in the value of the Canadian dollar to the U.S. dollar, resulting in the realization of foreign exchange gains and losses on the settlement of foreign currency transactions as well as the revaluation of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in a foreign currency. These gains and losses are not integral to our core operating performance and were thus classified as a selected item impacting comparability.

(7)Includes costs recognized during the period related to the Line 901 incident that occurred in May 2015, net of amounts we believe are probable of recovery from insurance.

(8)Includes acquisition-related expenses associated with the acquisition of Felix Midstream LLC in February 2020.

(9)Includes net gains recognized in connection with the repurchase of our outstanding senior notes on the open market.
