AMGP 2017 Distribution Guidance and Long-term Outlook

The Board of Directors of AMGP GP LLC, the general partner of AMGP, declared a cash distribution of $0.027 per share for the second quarter of 2017.

On June 15, 2017, AMGP announced distribution guidance of $0.15 to $0.17 for the year ended December 31, 2017, which includes the previously announced pro-rated distribution of $0.027 for the second quarter of 2017. AMGP is targeting distributions per share of $0.43 to $0.46 for 2018, $0.70 to $0.76 for 2019, and $1.06 to $1.16 for 2020, driven by Antero Midstream’s compound annual distribution growth target per unit of 28% to 30% through 2020. AMGP’s guidance and long-term targets assume 1.0x DCF coverage and exclude the impact of any future debt or equity offerings, acquisitions, or divestitures at either Antero Midstream or AMGP.

Antero Midstream Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Low pressure gathering volumes for the second quarter of 2017 averaged 1,683 MMcf/d, a 24% increase from the second quarter of 2016 and a 1% increase sequentially.

High pressure gathering volumes for the second quarter of 2017 averaged 1,734 MMcf/d, a 38% increase from the second quarter of 2016 and a 10% increase sequentially. The increase in gathering and compression volumes was driven by production growth from Antero Resources in Antero Midstream’s area of dedication. In the second quarter of 2017, which was the first full quarter of operations for the Antero Midstream / MPLX joint venture (the "Joint Venture"), processing volumes averaged 216 MMcf/d and fractionation volumes averaged 4,039 Bbl/d.

For the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Partnership reported revenues of $194 million, comprised of $99 million from the Gathering and Processing segment and $95 million from the Water Handling and Treatment segment. Revenues increased 42% compared to the prior year quarter, driven by growth in throughput volumes and fresh water delivery volumes. Water Handling and Treatment segment revenues include $36 million from wastewater handling and high rate water transfer services provided to Antero Resources, which is billed at cost plus 3%.

Direct operating expenses for the Gathering and Processing and Water Handling and Treatment segments were $10 million and $42 million, respectively, for a total of $52 million compared to $43 million in direct operating expenses in the prior year quarter. Water Handling and Treatment direct operating expenses include $35 million from produced water handling and high rate water transfer services. General and administrative expenses including equity-based compensation were $15 million, a $2 million increase compared to the second quarter of 2016. General and administrative expenses excluding equity-based compensation were $8 million during the second quarter of 2017, a $1 million increase compared to the second quarter of 2016. Total operating expenses were $101 million, including $30 million of depreciation and $4 million of accretion of contingent acquisition consideration.

Net income for the second quarter of 2017 was $87 million, a 75% increase compared to the prior year quarter. Net income per limited partner unit was $0.39 per unit, a 44% increase compared to the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $139 million, a 59% increase compared to the prior year quarter. The increase in net income and Adjusted EBITDA is primarily driven by increased throughput volumes and fresh water delivery volumes. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter included $6 million in distributions from Stonewall Gathering LLC ("Stonewall") and did not include distributions from the processing and fractionation joint venture. Antero Midstream expects distributions from Stonewall to be approximately $10 to $15 million and distributions from the processing and fractionation joint venture to be approximately $10 million in 2017, both in line with previously provided guidance. Cash interest paid was $2 million. Cash reserved for bond interest during the quarter was $9 million and cash reserved for payment of income tax withholding upon vesting of Antero Midstream equity-based compensation awards was $2 million. Maintenance capital expenditures during the quarter totaled $16 million and distributable cash flow was $110 million, resulting in a DCF coverage ratio of 1.5x.

Commenting on the outlook for Antero Midstream, Paul Rady, Chairman and CEO said, "The second quarter highlights the benefits of Antero Midstream’s integrated full value chain strategy, as Antero’s advanced completions drove record gathering, compression and fresh water delivery volumes for Antero Midstream. Additionally, Antero Midstream’s processing and fractionation investment is beginning to build significant momentum, as the Joint Venture’s first processing plant, Sherwood 7, was fully utilized during the second quarter and we recently placed on line the Joint Venture’s second processing plant, Sherwood 8, which is already fully utilized. The Joint Venture’s next plant, Sherwood 9 (200 MMcf/d), is expected to be in service in January of 2018."

2) Estimate of current period portion of expected cash payment for income tax withholding attributable to vesting of Midstream LTIP equity-based compensation awards to be paid in the fourth quarter.
3) Maintenance capital expenditures represent the portion of our estimated capital expenditures associated with (i) the connection of new wells to our gathering and processing systems that we believe will be necessary to offset the natural production declines Antero Resources will experience on all of its wells over time, and (ii) water delivery to new wells necessary to maintain the average throughput volume on our systems.

Commenting on Antero Midstream’s quarterly results, Michael Kennedy, CFO of Antero Midstream said, "Antero Midstream reported another strong quarter with operating revenues and adjusted EBITDA increasing by 42% and 59% over the prior year quarter, respectively. Importantly, the strong second quarter results and peer leading distribution growth and DCF coverage keep us on track to achieve our 2017 guidance. Antero Midstream remains well capitalized, with debt to trailing twelve months adjusted EBITDA of 1.9x and over $1.2 billion of liquidity."

Gathering and Processing -- Current compression capacity is approximately 1.4 Bcf/d in the Marcellus and Utica combined and was over 83% utilized on average in the second quarter. Additionally, Antero Midstream connected 28 wells to its gathering system during the quarter. Antero Resources is currently operating six drilling rigs on Antero Midstream dedicated acreage.

Water Handling and Treatment -- Antero Midstream’s Marcellus and Utica fresh water delivery systems serviced 44 well completions during the second quarter of 2017, a 42% increase from the prior year quarter and 29% increase sequentially. Antero Resources is currently operating five completion crews on Antero Midstream dedicated acreage. During the quarter, Antero Midstream continued construction on the Antero Clearwater Facility, which is expected to be placed into service in the fourth quarter of 2017 and have up to 60,000 Bbl/d of treating capacity.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of June 30, 2017, Antero Midstream had $18 million in cash and $305 million drawn on its $1.5 billion bank credit facility, resulting in approximately $1.2 billion of liquidity. Antero Midstream’s net debt to trailing twelve months adjusted EBITDA was 1.9x as of June 30, 2017. For a reconciliation of consolidated net debt to consolidated total debt, the most comparable GAAP measure, please read "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Antero Midstream views Adjusted EBITDA as an important indicator of the Partnership’s performance. Antero Midstream defines Adjusted EBITDA as Net Income before interest expense, depreciation expense, accretion of contingent acquisition consideration, equity-based compensation expense, excluding equity in earnings of unconsolidated affiliates, and including cash distributions from unconsolidated affiliates.

Antero Midstream uses Adjusted EBITDA to assess:

the financial performance of the Partnership’s assets, without regard to financing methods in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, capital structure or historical cost basis;

its operating performance and return on capital as compared to other publicly traded partnerships in the midstream energy sector, without regard to financing or capital structure; and

-- the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects.

The Partnership defines Distributable Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA less interest paid, income tax withholding payments and cash reserved for payments of income tax withholding upon vesting of equity-based compensation awards, cash reserved for bond interest and ongoing maintenance capital expenditures paid. Antero Midstream uses Distributable Cash Flow as a performance metric to compare the cash generating performance of the Partnership from period to period and to compare the cash generating performance for specific periods to the cash distributions (if any) that are expected to be paid to unitholders. Distributable Cash Flow does not reflect changes in working capital balances.

Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are non-GAAP financial measures. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow is Net Income. The non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow should not be considered as alternatives to the GAAP measure of Net Income. Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are not presentations made in accordance with GAAP and have important limitations as an analytical tool because they include some, but not all, items that affect Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA. You should not consider Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow in isolation or as a substitute for analyses of results as reported under GAAP. Antero Midstream’s definition of Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other partnerships.
