Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. Reports Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2011 Results

HOUSTON--()--Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (NYSE:PAA) today reported net income attributable to Plains of $278 million, or $1.37 per diluted limited partner unit, for the fourth quarter of 2011 and net income attributable to Plains of $966 million, or $4.88 per diluted limited partner unit, for the full year 2011. Net income attributable to Plains for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $142 million, or $0.67 per diluted limited partner unit, and net income attributable to Plains for the full year 2010 was $505 million, or $2.40 per diluted limited partner unit. The Partnership reported earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) of $426 million and $1.54 billion for the respective fourth-quarter and full-year 2011 periods compared to reported EBITDA of $277 million and $1.02 billion, for the comparable 2010 periods.

“PAA delivered record level performance for the fourth quarter and full year of 2011 and meaningfully exceeded our public guidance ranges,” said Greg L. Armstrong, Chairman and CEO of Plains All American. “These results are a testament to the strength of PAA’s business model and strategic asset base and the outstanding execution by PAA’s employees during a period of strong fundamentals and favorable market conditions.”

“Looking forward, PAA is well positioned to continue to deliver attractive results. During 2011, we invested $1.9 billion in expansion capital and acquisitions and we plan to invest over $2.5 billion in 2012 through our $850 million expansion capital program and our pending $1.7 billion acquisition of BP’s Canadian NGL business. PAA is also well positioned to finance this growth while maintaining a solid capital structure and a high level of liquidity. As a result of our proactive financing activities and cash generated in excess of our distributions, PAA ended the year with a strong balance sheet, over $3.5 billion of committed liquidity and favorably positioned with respect to our targeted credit profile.”

“Based on this positioning and strong industry fundamentals, we are targeting to increase our limited partner distributions by 8% to 9% during 2012, while maintaining attractive distribution coverage levels.”

The Partnership’s reported results include the impact of items that affect comparability between reporting periods. These items are excluded from adjusted results, as detailed in the table below. Accordingly, the Partnership’s fourth-quarter 2011 adjusted net income attributable to Plains, adjusted net income per diluted limited partner unit and adjusted EBITDA were $322 million, $1.65 and $471 million, respectively, as compared to fourth-quarter 2010 respective results of $187 million, $0.99 and $322 million.

The Partnership’s adjusted net income attributable to Plains, adjusted net income per diluted limited partner unit and adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2011 were $1.02 billion, $5.24 and $1.60 billion, respectively, as compared to the full-year 2010 respective results of $594 million, $3.03 and $1.11 billion. (See the section of this release entitled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the attached tables for discussion of EBITDA and other non-GAAP financial measures, and reconciliations of such measures to the comparable GAAP measures.)

Includes acquisition-related expenses for the 2011 periods.
(3) Certain of our non-GAAP financial measures may not be impacted by each of the selected items impacting comparability.

Adjusted segment profit for the Transportation segment for the fourth quarter and full year 2011 increased by approximately 16% and 8%, respectively, over comparable 2010 results. Increases for both periods were primarily driven by higher pipeline tariffs and volumes, partially offset by higher operating expenses. Full-year 2011 results include a $31 million negative impact associated with the Rainbow pipeline incident that occurred during the second quarter.

Adjusted segment profit for the Facilities segment for the fourth quarter and full year 2011 increased by approximately 43% and 34%, respectively, over comparable 2010 results primarily due to the Southern Pines gas storage facility acquisition (closed in February 2011) and capacity increases from organic growth capital projects.

Adjusted segment profit for the Supply and Logistics segment for the fourth quarter and full year 2011 increased by approximately 83% and 121%, respectively, over comparable 2010 results primarily due to increased crude oil lease gathering volumes and margins related to high levels of drilling activity in areas that we service, the acquisition of Nexen’s Bakken crude oil business (closed in December 2010) and favorable crude oil market conditions.

The Partnership’s basic weighted average units outstanding for the fourth quarter 2011 totaled 152 million (154 million diluted) as compared to 138 million (139 million diluted) in last year’s fourth quarter. On December 31, 2011, the Partnership had approximately 155.4 million units outstanding, long-term debt of approximately $4.5 billion and a long-term debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 43%.

The Partnership has declared a quarterly distribution of $1.025 per unit ($4.10 per unit on an annualized basis) payable February 14, 2012, on its outstanding limited partner units. This distribution represents an increase of approximately 7.0% over the quarterly distribution paid in February 2011 and an increase of approximately 3.0% over the quarterly distribution paid in November 2011.

The Partnership will hold a conference call at 11:00 AM (Eastern) on February 9, 2012 (see details below). Prior to this conference call, the Partnership will furnish a current report on Form 8-K, which will include material in this press release and financial and operational guidance for the first quarter and full year 2012. A copy of the Form 8-K will be available on the Partnership’s website at www.paalp.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, management uses additional measures that are known as “non-GAAP financial measures” in its evaluation of past performance and prospects for the future. These measures include adjusted EBITDA and implied distributable cash flow (“DCF”).

Management believes that the presentation of such additional financial measures provides useful information to investors regarding our performance and results of operations because these measures, when used in conjunction with related GAAP financial measures, (i) provide additional information about our core operating performance and ability to generate and distribute cash flow, (ii) provide investors with the financial analytical framework upon which management bases financial, operational, compensation and planning decisions and (iii) present measurements that investors, rating agencies and debt holders have indicated are useful in assessing us and our results of operations. These measures may exclude, for example, (i) charges for obligations that are expected to be settled with the issuance of equity instruments, (ii) the mark-to-market of derivative instruments that are related to underlying activities in another period (or the reversal of such adjustments from a prior period), (iii) items that are not indicative of our core operating results and business outlook and/or (iv) other items that we believe should be excluded in understanding our core operating performance. We have defined all such items as “Selected Items Impacting Comparability.” These additional financial measures are reconciled from the most directly comparable measures as reported in accordance with GAAP, and should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of, our consolidated financial statements and footnotes.

Although we present selected items that we consider 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 and numerous other factors. A full analysis of these types of variations are not 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.

Conference Call

The Partnership will host a conference call at 11:00 AM (Eastern) on Thursday, February 9, 2012 to discuss the following items:

1. The Partnership’s fourth-quarter and full-year 2011 performance;

2. The status of major expansion projects;

3. Capitalization and liquidity;

4. Financial and operating guidance for the first quarter and full year 2012; and

5. The Partnership’s outlook for the future.
