Dominion Midstream Partners Announces Fourth-Quarter 2016 Earnings

Dominion Midstream Partners, LP (DM) reported unaudited net income attributable to the partnership of $36.5 million for the three months ended Dec. 31, 2016. Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) was $45.8 million, and distributable cash flow was $37.7 million for the quarter. On Dec. 1, 2016, Dominion Midstream successfully completed the acquisition of Questar Pipeline, LLC, from Dominion Resources, Inc. (D).

Dominion Midstream uses Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow as the primary performance measurements of its earnings and results for public communications with analysts and investors. Dominion Midstream also uses Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow internally for budgeting, reporting to the Board of Directors and other purposes. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow provide a more meaningful representation of the partnership’s financial performance and liquidity. Schedules B and D of this press release include reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

QUARTERLY DISTRIBUTION On Jan. 25, 2017, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly distribution of $0.2605 per common and subordinated unit, payable on Feb. 15, 2017, to such unitholders of record at the close of business Feb. 6, 2017.
