(1) The Partnership’s reported results include the impact of items that affect comparability between reporting periods. The impact of certain of these items is excluded from adjusted results. See the section of this release entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Selected Items Impacting Comparability" and the tables attached hereto for information regarding certain selected items that the Partnership believes impact comparability of financial results between reporting periods, as well as for information regarding non-GAAP financial measures (such as adjusted EBITDA) and their reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

“PAA ended the year on another strong note, delivering adjusted EBITDA that exceeded the midpoint of our fourth-quarter guidance by $50 million and the mid-point of our 2013 beginning-of-the-year guidance by over $265 million,” stated Greg L. Armstrong, Chairman and CEO of Plains All American Pipeline. “These results were underpinned by solid performance in our fee-based Facilities segment and above baseline performance in our Supply and Logistics segment.”

“PAA’s 2013 results and our 2014 guidance for our fee-based Transportation and Facilities segments continue to reflect the benefits of our ongoing expansion capital program. Aggregate adjusted segment profit from our Transportation and Facilities segments increased 12% in 2013 over 2012 results, and the midpoint of our guidance range anticipates a year-to-year increase of approximately 15% in 2014,” said Armstrong. “Guidance for our Supply and Logistics segment incorporates a return to baseline-type performance; however, as in prior years, the partnership remains well positioned to outperform guidance if market conditions remain favorable.”

“We have targeted to grow PAA’s distributions per unit by approximately 10% in 2014, while continuing to maintain solid distribution coverage.” Armstrong stated that the partnership’s 2014 expansion capital program increased to $1.7 billion, which reflects a $300 million increase from PAA’s preliminary targeted range. Armstrong also noted that PAA is well positioned financially to both execute its expansion capital program as well as capitalize on potential acquisition opportunities.

The following table summarizes selected PAA financial information by segment for the fourth quarter and full year of 2013:

See the section of this release entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Selected Items Impacting Comparability" and the tables attached hereto for information regarding certain selected items that the Partnership believes impact comparability of financial results between reporting periods.

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

Fourth-quarter 2013 Transportation adjusted segment profit increased 8% versus comparable 2012 results. This increase was primarily driven by the benefit of higher crude oil pipeline volumes associated with recently completed organic growth projects, partially offset by the sale of our refined products pipelines and lower volumes on our Canadian crude oil pipelines due to the impact of rail and proration on downstream pipelines.

Fourth-quarter 2013 Facilities adjusted segment profit increased 20% over comparable 2012 results, primarily due to increased crude oil rail activities.

Fourth-quarter 2013 Supply and Logistics adjusted segment profit exceeded our guidance, but decreased by approximately 22% relative to comparable 2012 results. This decrease was primarily related to less favorable crude oil market conditions during the fourth quarter of 2013, particularly narrower crude oil differentials in the Permian Basin and Gulf Coast regions, partially offset by stronger net margins in the NGL business.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Selected Items Impacting Comparability

To supplement our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, management uses additional measures that are known as “non-GAAP financial measures” (such as adjusted EBITDA and implied distributable cash flow) in its evaluation of past performance and prospects for the future. 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.” We consider an understanding of these selected items impacting comparability to be material to the evaluation of our operating results and prospects.

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. 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.

Adjusted EBITDA and other non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to the most comparable GAAP measures for the 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 notes thereto. In addition, PAA maintains on its website (www.plainsallamerican.com) a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA and certain commonly used non-GAAP financial information to the most comparable GAAP measures. To access the information, investors should click on “Plains All American Pipeline, L.P.” under the "Investor Relations" link on the home page, select the "Guidance & Non-GAAP Reconciliations" link and navigate to the “Non-GAAP Reconciliations” tab.

Forward Looking Statements

Except for the historical information contained herein, the matters discussed in this release are forward-looking statements that involve certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from results anticipated in the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, among other things, failure to implement or capitalize, or delays in implementing or capitalizing, on planned internal growth projects; unanticipated changes in crude oil 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, refined products and natural gas and resulting changes in pricing conditions or transportation throughput requirements; the occurrence of a natural disaster, catastrophe, terrorist attack or other event, including attacks on our electronic and computer systems; tightened capital markets or other factors that increase our cost of capital or limit our access to capital; maintenance of our credit rating and ability to receive open credit from our suppliers and trade counterparties; continued creditworthiness of, and performance by, our counterparties, including financial institutions and trading companies with which we do business; the currency exchange rate of the Canadian dollar; the availability of, and our ability to consummate, acquisition or combination opportunities; the successful integration and future performance of acquired assets or businesses and the risks associated with operating in lines of business that are distinct and separate from our historical operations; the effectiveness of our risk management activities; declines in the volumes of crude oil, refined product and NGL shipped, processed, purchased, stored, fractionated and/or gathered at or through the use of our facilities, whether due to declines in production from existing oil and gas reserves, failure to develop or slowdown in the development of additional oil and gas reserves or other factors; shortages or cost increases of supplies, materials or labor; our ability to obtain debt or equity financing on satisfactory terms to fund additional acquisitions, expansion projects, working capital requirements and the repayment or refinancing of indebtedness; the impact of current and future laws, rulings, governmental regulations, accounting standards and statements and related interpretations; non-utilization of our assets and facilities; the effects of competition; increased costs or lack of availability of insurance; fluctuations in the debt and equity markets, including the price of our units at the time of vesting under our long-term incentive plans; weather interference with business operations or project construction; risks related to the development and operation of our facilities; factors affecting demand for natural gas and natural gas storage services and rates; general economic, market or business conditions and the amplification of other risks caused by volatile financial markets, capital constraints and pervasive liquidity concerns; and other factors and uncertainties inherent in the transportation, storage, terminalling and marketing of crude oil and refined products, as well as in the storage of natural gas and the processing, transportation, fractionation, storage and marketing of natural gas liquids discussed in the Partnerships’ filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

(1) We calculate net income available to limited partners based on the distributions pertaining to the current period’s net income. After adjusting for the appropriate period's distributions, the remaining undistributed earnings or excess distributions over earnings, if any, are allocated to the general partner, limited partners and participating securities in accordance with the contractual terms of the partnership agreement and as further prescribed under the two-class method.

(2) Our Long-term Incentive Plan ("LTIP") awards that contemplate the issuance of common units are considered dilutive unless (i) vesting occurs only upon the satisfaction of a performance condition and (ii) that performance condition has yet to be satisfied. LTIP awards that are deemed to be dilutive are reduced by a hypothetical unit repurchase based on the remaining unamortized fair value, as prescribed by the treasury stock method in guidance issued by the FASB.
