Tidewater Midstream and Infrastructure Ltd. Logo (CNW Group/Tidewater Midstream and Infrastructure Ltd.)

SECOND-QUARTER 2022 HIGHLIGHTS
  • Strong downstream performance and realized refining margins in excess of $100/bbl contributed to consolidated net income of $18.8 million and Adjusted EBITDA increasing to $69.9 million in the second quarter of 2022. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA grew by approximately 34% compared to the same period in the prior year.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $57.0 million for the second quarter of 2022, with distributable cash flow attributable to shareholders of $31.0 million equating to a payout ratio of 11%.(1)
  • During the second quarter of 2022, Tidewater Midstream's Pipestone Natural Gas Plant processed volumes of 101 MMcf/day, a 10% increase from the second quarter of 2021 and a 4% increase from the first quarter of 2022.
  • Successful planned turnarounds at Tidewater Midstream's Ram River and Brazeau River Complex plants were executed during the second quarter of 2022. The turnarounds were completed safely on time and on budget.
  • On July 27th, 2022 Tidewater Midstream announced its financing plan to fully fund the repayment of $125 million senior unsecured notes (the "Senior Unsecured Notes") and $20 million second lien term loan (the "Second Lien Term Loan"). The Senior Unsecured Notes and Second Lien Term Loan repayments will be funded through proceeds from the announced unit offering and draws on an expanded senior credit facility (collectively the "Financing Plan").
  • The Corporation is planning to expand its Pipestone Gas Plant ("Pipestone Phase 2"), adding 100 MMcf/day of sour natural gas processing to the facility, and is evaluating financing alternatives. The expansion will enlarge the Corporation's footprint in the liquids-rich Montney region with its existing capacity and natural gas storage assets.
  • Tidewater Renewables Ltd. ("Tidewater Renewables"), in which Tidewater Midstream owns 69% of the outstanding common shares, continues its strong financial performance generating Adjusted EBITDA of $16.9 million and net income of $4.4 million during the second quarter of 2022.

DECONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

This MD&A presents the financial information of Tidewater Midstream on a consolidated basis unless otherwise noted. In addition to reviewing fully consolidated results, management reviews Adjusted EBITDA and net debt on a deconsolidated basis to highlight Tidewater Midstream's financial results, financial position, leverage, and debt covenants, excluding the impact of the Corporation's ownership in Tidewater Renewables. Tidewater Midstream's distributable cash flow excludes Tidewater Renewables' distributable cash flow to non-controlling interest shareholders. These metrics are not defined under IFRS and may not be comparable to those used by other entities. See the "Non-GAAP and Other Financial Measures" section of this MD&A for further details.

Prince George refining margins increased significantly during the second quarter of 2022, averaging over $100/bbl, a 37% increase from the 2021 average of $60/bbl and a 37% increase from the first quarter of 2022 average of $73/bbl. The increase in Prince George refining margins is partially offset by increased regulatory compliance costs related to British Columbia's Low Carbon Fuel Standard program. 

Pipestone Natural Gas Plant

Strategically located within the Alberta Montney fairway, the Pipestone Natural Gas Plant processed its highest average volume of 101 MMcf/day in the second quarter of 2022, a 10% increase from the second quarter of 2021 and a 4% increase from the first quarter of 2022. Facility availability for the second quarter of 2022 averaged 96%, an increase of 2% from the first quarter of 2021, and a 4% increase from the first quarter of 2022. The Pipestone Natural Gas Plant's next scheduled turnaround is in the third quarter of 2022, which is expected to decrease third quarter throughput by approximately 20%. The local Montney formation continues to remain very active and the Pipestone Natural Gas plant remains fully contracted with over 85% of capacity committed on take-or-pay arrangements.

Brazeau River Complex and Fractionation Facility ("BRC")

The Brazeau River fractionation facility was able to maintain steady operations during the second quarter of 2022 by maintaining stable plant production and truck in volumes. The fractionation facility utilization averaged 67%, a 10% increase from the second quarter of 2021 and a 20% decrease from the first quarter of 2022. The transitory decrease was due to the scheduled facility turnaround that was completed during the second quarter of 2022. The fractionation facility continues to serve as a key asset for Tidewater Midstream's NGL marketing business.

The BRC gas processing facility averaged throughput of 123 MMcf/day for the second quarter of 2022 an increase of 24% relative to the second quarter of 2021.  The raw gas processing rates at the BRC increased by 18% compared to the first quarter of 2022. Tidewater Midstream continues to look for opportunities to increase third-party throughput by working with producers to improve netbacks by increasing the utilization of the BRC's facilities.

CAPITAL PROGRAM

Tidewater Midstream's 2022 capital program focuses on small-scale optimization projects along with its renewable initiatives. Tidewater Midstream continues to evaluate and execute smaller capital projects in the $5 million to $25 million capital cost range with strong short-term returns on investment.

During the second quarter of 2022, the Corporation safely and successfully completed two large planned turnarounds at its Ram River Gas Plant and at the BRC. The Corporation has upcoming turnarounds occurring in the third quarter of 2022 for the Pipestone Gas Plant and the second quarter of 2023 for PGR. Tidewater Midstream expects full year 2022 maintenance capital expenditures to be approximately $35$40 million.

FINANCING TRANSACTIONS

Subsequent to the second quarter Tidewater Midstream announced its Financing Plan to fully fund the repayment of $125 million of its Senior Unsecured Notes and its $20 Second Lien Term Loan. The Senior Unsecured Notes payable and Second Lien Term Loan repayments will be funded through, the previously announced unit financing and draws on the Corporation's credit facility.  Under the unit financing the company expects to raise gross proceeds of $58.1 million through a public offering and an additional $34.5 million through a private placement of units.  Each unit will be issued at a price of $1.20 per unit and will consist of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. One full common share purchase warrant will entitle the holder to ‎acquire one common share of the Corporation at a price of $1.44 for a period of up to 24 months from the expected closing date, currently expected to be on or about August 16, 2022. Full details and regulatory disclosures are available on SEDAR.

Additionally, and concurrent with the above transactions close, Tidewater expects to increase its senior credit facility from $420 million to $550 million through an expanded syndicate of lenders including two of Canada's largest financial institutions. The amended facility will mature on August 18, 2024.

OUTLOOK

Tidewater Midstream's outlook for full year 2022 remains unchanged, with the Corporation expecting 2022 consolidated Adjusted EBITDA to range from $230 – 245 million with deconsolidated Adjusted EBITDA expected to range between $180-190 million.

CONFERENCE CALL

Due to the announced unit offering associated with the short form prospectus filed on August 9, 2022, the Corporation will not be hosting an earnings conference call. For further detail and discussion of Tidewater Midstream's financial performance please refer to our condensed interim consolidated financial statements and MD&A for the period ended June 30, 2022. Tidewater management expects to resume its quarterly earnings calls following its third quarter 2022 results release.

NON-GAAP AND OTHER FINANCIAL MEASURES

Throughout this press release and in other materials disclosed by the Corporation, Tidewater Midstream uses a number of financial measures when assessing its results and measuring overall performance. The intent of non-GAAP measures and ratios is to provide additional useful information to investors and analysts. Certain of these financial measures do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other entities. As such, these measures should not be considered in isolation or used as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. For more information with respect to financial measures which have not been defined by GAAP, including reconciliations to the closest comparable GAAP measure, see the "Non-GAAP and Other Financial Measures" section of Tidewater Midstream's most recent MD&A which is available on SEDAR.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Corporation are Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow.

Consolidated and Deconsolidated Adjusted EBITDA

Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as income (or loss) before finance costs, taxes, depreciation, share-based compensation, unrealized gains/losses on derivative contracts, non-cash items, transaction costs, lease payments under IFRS 16 Leases and other items considered non-recurring in nature plus the Corporation's proportionate share of EBITDA in their equity investments. Deconsolidated Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as consolidated Adjusted EBITDA less the portion of consolidated Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Tidewater Renewables.

In accordance with IFRS, Tidewater Midstream's jointly controlled investments are accounted for using equity accounting. Under equity accounting, net earnings from investments in equity accounted investees are recognized in a single line item in the consolidated statement of net income (loss) and comprehensive income (loss). The adjustments made to net income (loss), as described above, are also made to share of profit from investments in equity accounted investees.

The following table reconciles net income (loss), the nearest GAAP measure, to consolidated Adjusted EBITDA and deconsolidated Adjusted EBITDA:

Distributable cash flow attributable to shareholders (excluding distributable cash flow to non-controlling interest shareholders associated with Tidewater Renewables)

Distributable cash flow is calculated as net cash provided by operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital plus cash distributions from investments, transaction costs, non-recurring expenses, and after any expenditures that use cash from operations. Changes in non-cash working capital are excluded from the determination of distributable cash flow because they are primarily the result of seasonal fluctuations or other temporary changes and are generally funded with short term debt or cash flows from operating activities. Deducted from distributable cash flow are maintenance capital expenditures, including turnarounds, as they are ongoing recurring expenditures which are funded from operating cash flows. Transaction costs are added back as they vary significantly quarter to quarter based on the Corporation's acquisition and disposition activity. It also excludes non-recurring transactions that do not reflect Tidewater Midstream's ongoing operations. Distributable cash flow attributable to shareholders also deducts distributable cash flow to non-controlling interest shareholders associated with Tidewater Renewables.
