TEPPCO Partners, L.P. Reports Record Results for Both the Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2006

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 6, 2007--TEPPCO Partners, L.P. (NYSE:TPP) today reported record net income of $56.6 million, or $0.53 per unit for the fourth quarter of 2006, representing a 27 percent increase from net income of $44.6 million, or $0.45 per unit, for the fourth quarter of 2005. Net income for the 12 months ended December 31, 2006, increased 24 percent to a record $202.1 million, or $1.96 per unit, compared with $162.6 million, or $1.71 per unit for the full year 2005. Income from continuing operations for the 12 months ended December 31, 2006, which excludes the impact of a $17.9 million gain from the sale of the Pioneer natural gas processing plant, was $182.7 million, representing a 15 percent increase, compared with income from continuing operations of $159.4 million for the prior year.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) from continuing operations increased by 14 percent, or $14.0 million, to a record $114.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2006, compared with $100.3 million for the corresponding quarter in 2005. EBITDA from continuing operations increased by 9 percent, or $32.8 million, to a record $412.7 million for the 12 months ended December 31, 2006, compared with $379.9 million for 2005.

EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure which is defined and reconciled to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure later in this news release.

"Led by a particularly strong performance within our Upstream segment, each of our business segments contributed to the best fourth quarter net income and EBITDA results the partnership has ever had," said Jerry E. Thompson, president and chief executive officer of TEPPCO. "Our results were even more impressive given the challenges our Downstream segment faced as a result of one of the warmest winters on record in the Northeast, which reduced propane demand in the region during 2006. Our outstanding performance, despite the impact of the weather, highlights the benefits of the diversity of TEPPCO's asset base." Thompson noted that 2006 was a transition year for TEPPCO as the partnership completed several critical initiatives which are expected to position the partnership for future long-term growth, including:

  • assembling an experienced management team committed to long-term growth;
  • integrating many of TEPPCO's administrative functions into the EPCO, Inc. shared services organization, which should provide ongoing benefits through lower general and administrative costs;
  • amending TEPPCO's partnership agreement, which we expect will lower the partnership's long-term cost of equity capital through a reduction of the general partner's maximum share of TEPPCO's quarterly cash distribution from 50 percent to 25 percent; and
  • unveiling a new strategic plan for growth, highlighting six key trends that complement TEPPCO's businesses and providing a road map for future growth;

Thompson added, "The benefits of our efforts to lower the partnership's cost of equity capital and to focus on growth projects that add to our diversified platform of assets were demonstrated in the fourth quarter with the announcement of our agreement with Motiva Enterprises to construct and operate a new refined products storage facility to support the proposed expansion of Motiva's refinery in Port Arthur, Texas, and the acquisition and planned development of refined product terminals in Mississippi and Alabama."

OPERATING RESULTS BY BUSINESS SEGMENT

Upstream segment

The Upstream segment includes transportation, storage, gathering and marketing of crude oil and distribution of lubrication oils and specialty chemicals.

EBITDA from continuing operations for the Upstream segment increased 25 percent to $25.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2006, compared with $20.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2005. The increase in EBITDA resulted primarily from favorable market conditions and lower operating and labor expenses. Results for the fourth quarter of 2006 also reflect a $1.8 million gain on the sale of idled assets. As it has throughout 2006, the partnership continued to capitalize on market opportunities during the fourth quarter resulting from increased system flexibility associated with integration of certain pipeline and terminal acquisitions.

TEPPCO's share of EBITDA in Seaway Crude Pipeline, which is included in Upstream EBITDA, was $3.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2006, compared with $5.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2005. The decrease was primarily due to the terms of the Seaway partnership agreement whereby TEPPCO's participation ratio in Seaway's earnings decreased from 60 percent to 40 percent, effective May 2006, and lower transportation volumes. Long-haul volumes on Seaway averaged 227,000 barrels per day (BPD) in the fourth quarter of 2006, compared with 334,000 BPD in the same quarter of 2005. Long-haul volumes for the fourth quarter of 2005 benefited from record transportation demand as a result of supply disruptions caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Midstream segment

The Midstream segment includes natural gas gathering and treating services, as well as the storage, transportation and fractionation of natural gas liquids (NGLs).

EBITDA from continuing operations for the Midstream segment was $43.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2006, an increase of 14 percent, compared with $38.3 million of EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2005. The improved results were primarily due to increased gathering volumes on the Jonah Gas Gathering System resulting from the completion of the Phase IV expansion in early 2006. For the fourth quarter of 2006, natural gas gathering volumes on the Jonah system increased 19 percent to approximately 1.46 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) compared to approximately 1.23 Bcf/d in the fourth quarter of 2005. The increase in EBITDA for the quarter was partially offset by lower natural gas gathering volumes on the Val Verde system.

As part of a joint venture agreement, which became effective August 1, 2006, affiliates of TEPPCO and Enterprise Products Partners L.P. are constructing the Phase V expansion on the Jonah Gas Gathering System, which will increase system capacity and reduce wellhead pressures in order to increase production rates and maximize the recovery of reserves. The Jonah team has been working closely with area producers to finalize the scope and design of the Phase V expansion to optimally serve the expected production needs in both the Jonah and Pinedale fields. During the fourth quarter of 2006, a segment of the Phase V expansion pipeline was completed and placed into service, resulting in lower field pressures, improved production rates and incremental gathering fees for the partnership. Effective August 1, 2006, the Jonah system has been accounted for under the equity method and deconsolidated in TEPPCO's financial statements and operating results. TEPPCO expects to fund roughly half of the Phase V expansion costs.

TEPPCO's NGLs pipeline operations continue to operate at near-capacity, due to a favorable pricing environment for natural gas processing and the resulting increase in NGLs production volume available to our pipeline systems.

Downstream segment

The Downstream segment includes the transportation, marketing and storage of refined products, liquefied petroleum gases (LPGs) and petrochemicals.

EBITDA from continuing operations for the Downstream segment increased 9 percent to $45.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2006, compared with $41.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2005. The improved results were primarily due to an increase in refined products transportation volumes, higher refined products average tariff and an increase in storage revenue from acquired assets. The fourth quarter 2006 results also reflect a $4.2 million gain on the sale of idled assets. These increases in EBITDA were partially offset by lower long-haul propane transportation volumes attributable to warmer-than-normal winter weather, increased power costs, higher product measurement expense and a $1.5 million charge to write-down the book value of excess product inventory at December 31, 2006 to market value.

The partnership's share of EBITDA from unconsolidated investments, principally Centennial Pipeline and Mont Belvieu Storage Partners (MBSP), which is included in total Downstream segment EBITDA, was $3.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2006, compared with $4.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2005. TEPPCO's share of EBITDA in Centennial Pipeline was a loss of $2.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2006, compared to income of $1.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2005. This decrease was primarily attributable to an increase in scheduled pipeline integrity expenses. The partnership's share of EBITDA in MBSP was $5.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2006, compared with $3.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2005. This increase was primarily due to product measurement gains in the 2006 period. TEPPCO's 50 percent ownership interest in MBSP is expected to be divested during the first quarter of 2007, pursuant to an order and consent agreement with the Federal Trade Commission.

During the fourth quarter of 2006, TEPPCO signed an agreement with Motiva Enterprises to construct and operate a new refined products storage facility to support the proposed expansion of Motiva's refinery in Port Arthur, Texas. This project includes the construction of 20 storage tanks with a capacity of 5.4 million barrels for gasoline and distillates. The agreement also provides for a 15-year throughput and dedication of volumes, which will take effect upon completion of the refinery expansion. The storage and complementary pipeline expansion project is expected to be completed in mid-2009.

CAPITALIZATION AND LIQUIDITY

Total debt outstanding at December 31, 2006, was approximately $1.6 billion, with liquidity of approximately $200 million available under TEPPCO's $700 million credit facility.

2007 OUTLOOK

The partnership currently anticipates that total capital expenditures for 2007 will be approximately $292 million, which includes about $254 million for organic growth projects and system upgrades. Maintenance capital expenditures for 2007 are expected to be $38 million, including $12 million for pipeline integrity. Additionally, TEPPCO expects to invest approximately $151 million in 2007 for its share of capital expenditures related to the Jonah Phase V expansion. Completion of the Phase V expansion, which is projected during the fourth quarter, is expected to generate incremental gathering fees for the partnership during 2007. The Upstream segment should benefit from the start of service on new crude oil storage tanks in 2007. Among the projects scheduled to come online in the Downstream segment are the Genco system expansion and completion of a new refined products pipeline serving Memphis International Airport.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The Financial Highlights table accompanying this earnings release and other disclosures herein include references to EBITDA, which may be viewed as a non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) measure under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). We define EBITDA as net income plus interest expense - net, deferred income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, and a pro-rata portion, based on our equity ownership, of the interest expense and depreciation and amortization of each of our joint ventures. We have included EBITDA as a supplemental disclosure because we believe it is used by our investors as a supplemental financial measure in the evaluation of our business. A reconciliation of EBITDA to net income is provided in the Financial Highlights table and the Business Segment tables.

We believe EBITDA provides useful information regarding the performance of our assets without regard to financing methods, capital structures or historical costs basis. As a result, EBITDA provides investors with a helpful measure for comparing the operating performance of our assets with the performance of other companies that have different financing and capital structures. EBITDA multiples are also used by our investors in assisting in the valuation of our limited partners' equity. EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income or income from continuing operations, operating income, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Our EBITDA may not be comparable to that of other entities because other entities may not calculate EBITDA in the same manner as we do.

Information in the accompanying Operating Data table includes margin of the Upstream segment, which may also be viewed as a non-GAAP financial measure under the rules of the SEC. Margin is calculated as revenues generated from the sale of crude oil and lubrication oil, and transportation of crude oil, less the costs of purchases of crude oil and lubrication oil, in each case prior to the elimination of intercompany sales, revenues and purchases between wholly owned subsidiaries. We believe margin is a more meaningful measure of financial performance than sales and purchases of crude oil and lubrication oil due to the significant fluctuations in sales and purchases caused by variations in the level of marketing activity and prices for products marketed. Additionally, we use margin internally to evaluate the financial performance of the Upstream segment because it excludes expenses that are not directly related to the marketing and sales activities being evaluated. A reconciliation of margin to operating income is provided in the Operating Data table accompanying this earnings release.
