Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains non-generally accepted accounting principle financial measures that we refer to as adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow, gross operating margin and cash available for distribution. We define adjusted EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, stock-based compensation, (gain) loss on noncash derivatives, transaction costs, distribution of equity investment and non-controlling interest, and income (loss) on equity investment. Distributable cash flow is defined as earnings before certain noncash charges and the gain on the sale of assets less maintenance capital expenditures. Gross operating margin is defined as revenue minus the cost of purchased gas, NGL, condensate and crude oil. We define cash available for distribution as distributions due to the General Partner from the Partnership and from its 50% interest in EnLink Midstream Holdings, LP ("Midstream Holdings"), less specific general and administrative costs as a separate public reporting entity, the interest costs associated with debt and taxes attributable to earnings.

The amounts included in the calculation of these measures are computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) with the exception of maintenance capital expenditures and adjusted EBITDA of Midstream Holdings. Maintenance capital expenditures are capital expenditures made to replace partially or fully depreciated assets in order to maintain the existing operating capacity of the assets and to extend their useful lives. Adjusted EBITDA of Midstream Holdings is defined as earnings before depreciation.

The Partnership and General Partner believe these measures are useful to investors because they may provide users of this financial information with meaningful comparisons between current results and prior-reported results and a meaningful measure of the Partnership’s and the General Partner's cash flow after it has satisfied the capital and related requirements of its operations.

Gross operating margin, adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow and cash available for distribution as defined above, are not measures of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP. They should not be considered in isolation or as an indicator of the Partnership’s and the General Partner's performance. Furthermore, they should not be seen as measures of liquidity or a substitute for metrics prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of these measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in the following tables.

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Although these statements reflect the current views, assumptions and expectations of our management, the matters addressed herein involve certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual activities, performance, outcomes and results to differ materially than those indicated. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements about future financial and operating results, objectives, expectations and intentions and other statements that are not historical facts. Factors that could result in such differences or otherwise materially affect our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows include, without limitation, (a) the dependence on Devon for a substantial portion of the natural gas that we gather, process and transport, (b) the risk that EnLink Midstream will not be integrated successfully or that such integration will take longer than anticipated, (c) the possibility that expected synergies will not be realized, or will not be realized within the expected timeframe, (d) our lack of asset diversification, (e) our vulnerability to having a significant portion of our operations concentrated in the Barnett Shale, (f) the amount of hydrocarbons transported in our gathering and transmission lines and the level of our processing and fractionation operations, (g) fluctuations in oil, natural gas and NGL prices, (h) construction risks in our major development projects, (i) our ability to consummate future acquisitions, successfully integrate any acquired businesses, realize any cost savings and other synergies from any acquisition, (j) changes in the availability and cost of capital, (k) competitive conditions in our industry and their impact on our ability to connect hydrocarbon supplies to our assets, (l) operating hazards, natural disasters, weather-related delays, casualty losses and other matters beyond our control, and (m) the effects of existing and future laws and governmental regulations, including environmental and climate change requirements and other uncertainties. These and other applicable uncertainties, factors and risks are described more fully in EnLink Midstream Partners, LP’s and EnLink Midstream, LLC’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including EnLink Midstream Partners, LP’s and EnLink Midstream, LLC’s Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K.
