Spectra Energy Partners Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results and Announces Quarterly Cash Distribution Increase

HOUSTON, Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - Spectra Energy Partners, LP (NYSE: SEP) today reported net income of $377 million, of which $366 million is attributable to SEP's controlling interests, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018, with earnings per limited partner unit of $0.75.

THIRD QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS:

  • NEXUS and TEAL projects placed into service
  • Entered into definitive agreement with Enbridge and Enbridge (U.S.) Inc. on August 24, 2018, under which Enbridge will acquire all of the outstanding SEP public common units in an all stock-for-unit transaction at a ratio of 1.111 Enbridge common shares per SEP common unit
  • Announced quarterly distribution increase, representing an approximate 7 percent increase over the distribution declared in November 2017

FINANCIAL RESULTS

For the quarter, ongoing earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) were $561 million, compared with $554 million in the prior-year quarter. Ongoing net income from controlling interests was $371 million for the quarter, or $0.76 earnings per limited partner unit, compared with $379 million, or $0.89 earnings per limited partner unit in the prior-year quarter. Net income from controlling interests was $366 million for the quarter, or $0.75 earnings per limited partner unit, compared with $460 million, or $1.15 earnings per limited partner unit in the prior-year quarter.

Third quarter 2018 ongoing distributable cash flow (DCF) was $364 million, compared with $398 million in the prior-year quarter.

QUARTERLY DISTRIBUTION

Spectra Energy Partners announced today that the board of directors of the general partner declared a quarterly cash distribution to unitholders of $0.77625 per unit, an increase of 1.25 cents over the previous level of $0.76375 per unit and an approximate 7 percent increase compared to the third quarter 2017. The cash distribution is payable on November 29, 2018, to unitholders of record at the close of business on November 21, 2018. This quarterly cash distribution equates to $3.105 per unit on an annual basis.

PROPOSED MERGER

On August 24, 2018, SEP announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement (the Merger Agreement), pursuant to which an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Enbridge will be merged with and into SEP, with SEP surviving as an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Enbridge. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Enbridge will acquire all of SEP's outstanding common units not already directly or indirectly owned by Enbridge in an all stock-for-unit transaction at an exchange ratio of 1.111 Enbridge common shares per SEP common unit. The proposed merger is part of Enbridge's sponsored vehicle restructuring initiative to simplify its corporate structure.

A record date of November 5, 2018 has been established for determining the unitholders of SEP entitled to approve the SEP merger transaction without a meeting, which approval by written consent is expected to be determined on December 12, 2018. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Enbridge has irrevocably and unconditionally agreed to deliver its consent, with respect to all of the SEP common units owned by its wholly owned subsidiaries, in favor of approval of the transaction. As the majority SEP unitholder (83% of total SEP common units outstanding), Enbridge's approval by consent will constitute the requisite SEP unitholder vote required to approve the transaction.

Completion of the proposed merger is subject to certain customary closing conditions and is targeted to occur in the fourth quarter of 2018.

SEGMENT RESULTS

U.S. Transmission
Ongoing EBITDA from U.S. Transmission was $504 million in the third quarter 2018, compared with $505 million for the third quarter 2017. These results reflect increased earnings from expansion projects, increased revenue contracts on Sabal Trail, and higher allowance for funds used during construction on NEXUS, offset by higher operating and pipeline integrity costs and higher allocated corporate shared-service costs of $18 million, previously recorded in "Other". The 2017 ongoing results exclude a $106 million gain realized as a result of the deconsolidation and fair value re-measurement of our interest in Sabal Trail. The 2017 ongoing results also exclude special items of $18 million in expenses related to the 2016 Texas Eastern pipeline incident and $4 million in expenses primarily from merger-related costs.

Liquids
Ongoing EBITDA from Liquids was $59 million in the third quarter 2018, compared with $67 million for the third quarter 2017. The decrease is primarily a result of higher property taxes, regulatory expenses and allocated corporate shared-service costs of $4 million, previously recorded in "Other", partially offset by an increase in transportation volumes.

Other
Beginning with first quarter of 2018, "Other" consists of certain direct corporate governance costs. Allocated corporate shared-service costs were previously included in "Other" but are now directly allocated to the business segments. Ongoing net expenses from "Other" were $2 million and $18 million in third quarters 2018 and 2017, respectively. These results primarily reflect lower allocated corporate shared-services costs now included in U.S. Transmission and Liquids. The 2018 ongoing results exclude special items of $4 million in expenses, primarily from the proposed merger with Enbridge. The 2017 period excludes special items of $3 million, primarily from merger-related severance costs.

Interest Expense
Interest expense was $85 million in the third quarter 2018, compared with $75 million in the third quarter 2017, reflecting an increase in interest rates related to short-term borrowings and a higher balance of long-term debt outstanding.

Liquidity and Capital Expenditures
Total debt outstanding at Spectra Energy Partners as of September 30, 2018, was $8.8 billion, with available liquidity of approximately $1.1 billion, including cash on hand.

Including contributions from noncontrolling interests, Spectra Energy Partners has $1.6 billion of capital expansion spending planned in 2018. Total capital spending for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, was $1.2 billion, consisting of $1.1 billion of growth capital expenditures and $145 million of maintenance capital expenditures.

EXPANSION PROJECT UPDATES

SEP placed the NEXUS and TEAL projects into service in early October and volumes will continue to ramp up in the fourth quarter. The combined projects totaling $1.5 billion represent the successful culmination of more than four years of working with many stakeholders to provide natural gas to markets in Ohio, Michigan and Ontario.

We continue to advance the second stage of Atlantic Bridge, with its full capacity targeted for commercial availability in the fourth quarter 2018, which will add much needed capacity to the New England region.

Additionally, the South Texas Expansion Project (STEP) and the Pomelo Connector are both on track for an in-service date in the fourth quarter 2018. The projects provide an important link in SEP's South Texas infrastructure, supporting reliable gas transportation for exports to serve Mexico's growing natural gas demand.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use ongoing net income from controlling interests as a measure to evaluate operations of the partnership. This measure is a non-GAAP financial measure as it represents net income from controlling interests, excluding special items. Special items represent certain charges and credits which we believe will not be recurring on a regular basis. We believe that the presentation of ongoing net income from controlling interests provides useful information to investors, as it allows investors to more accurately compare our ongoing performance across periods. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for ongoing net income from controlling interests is net income from controlling interests.

We use earnings from continuing operations before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) and ongoing EBITDA, non-GAAP financial measures, as performance measures for Spectra Energy Partners, LP. Ongoing EBITDA represents EBITDA, excluding special items. We believe that the presentation of EBITDA and ongoing EBITDA provides useful information to investors, as it allows investors to more accurately compare Spectra Energy Partners, LP's performance across periods. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for EBITDA and ongoing EBITDA for Spectra Energy Partners, LP is net income.

The primary performance measures used by us to evaluate segment performance are segment EBITDA and Other EBITDA. We consider segment EBITDA and Other EBITDA, which are the GAAP measures used to report segment results, to be good indicators of each segment's operating performance from its continuing operations as they represent the results of our segments' operations before depreciation and amortization without regard to financing methods or capital structures. Our segment EBITDA and Other EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because other companies may not calculate EBITDA in the same manner.

We also use ongoing segment EBITDA as a measure of performance. Ongoing segment EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure, as it represents reported segment EBITDA, excluding special items. We believe that the presentation of ongoing segment EBITDA provides useful information to investors, as it allows investors to more accurately compare a segment's ongoing performance across periods. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for ongoing segment EBITDA is segment EBITDA.

We also present Distributable Cash Flow (DCF), which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We believe that the presentation of DCF provides useful information to investors, as it represents the cash generation capabilities of the partnership to support distribution growth. We also use ongoing DCF, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as it represents DCF, excluding the cash effect of special items. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for DCF and ongoing DCF is net income. We also use DCF coverage, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as it represents DCF divided by distributions declared on partnership units. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for DCF coverage is earnings per limited partner unit.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other partnerships because other partnerships may not calculate these measures in the same manner.

Distribution Information

This information is intended to be a qualified notice under Treasury Regulation Section 1.1446-4(b). Under rules applicable to publicly-traded partnerships, our distributions to non-U.S. unitholders are subject to withholding tax at the highest effective applicable rate to the extent attributable to income that is effectively connected with the conduct of a U.S. trade or business. Given the uncertainty at the time of making distributions regarding the amount of any distribution that is attributable to income that is so effectively connected, we intend to treat all of our distributions as attributable to our U.S. operations, and as a result, the entire distribution will be subject to withholding.

These factors, as well as additional factors that could affect our forward-looking statements, are described under the headings "Risk Factors" and "Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information" in our 2017 Form 10-K, filed on February 16, 2018, and in our other filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which are available via the SEC's website at www.sec.gov. In light of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the events described in the forward-looking statements might not occur or might occur to a different extent or at a different time than we have described. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
