Kinder Morgan Canada Limited Declares Dividends and Announces Results for Third Quarter of 2017

Limited Construction Activity Begins on Trans Mountain Expansion Project

CALGARY, Oct. 18, 2017 /CNW/ - The Kinder Morgan Canada Limited (TSX: KML) board of directors has declared a dividend for the third quarter of 2017 of $0.1625 per restricted voting share ($0.65 annualized), payable on November 15, 2017, to restricted voting shareholders of record as of October 31, 2017. KML's restricted voting share dividends are eligible dividends for Canadian income tax purposes.

"The Trans Mountain expansion project (TMEP) began limited construction activities in September and is moving forward with all aspects of planning and preparation for construction in other areas," said KML Board Chairman and CEO Steve Kean. "We have signed a number of agreements with prime construction contractors that will be supplying materials and working on the pipeline, terminals and stations along the route."

"Now, more than ever, this project is critical for our customers and Canada and we remain committed to delivering the project in an environmentally responsible way that respects our extensive and meaningful consultations with Indigenous Peoples, communities and individuals," said KML President Ian Anderson.

"We have submitted all pre-construction filings with the National Energy Board (NEB) consistent with our construction schedule," added Anderson. "We are also moving forward with our commitments to communities and to Indigenous Peoples through our Mutual Benefits Agreements and are excited to be working with individuals and communities to deliver jobs and opportunities at a local level."

Trans Mountain is now in receipt of a number of priority permits from regulatory authorities in Alberta and British Columbia, including access to British Columbia northern interior Crown lands. Pending receipt of some further permits and approvals, clearing and other construction activities will commence this year in Alberta and the B.C. northern interior. This is a positive and welcome development.

Construction preparation activity is off to a slower start than planned in the project schedule due primarily to the time required to file for, process and obtain all necessary permits and regulatory approvals.

KML is assessing construction mitigation plans that maintain the current in-service schedule of December 31, 2019. That planning, with our contractors, will rely upon continued progress towards schedule-critical regulatory approvals and will assess the acceleration of construction activities that are behind schedule. Absent this mitigation, project completion could be delayed by up to nine months. All project planning and schedule mitigation efforts include cost management measures and spend control to maximize project returns, including a reduction in 2017 spend that has already been implemented.

Third Quarter Results and 2017 Outlook

"Once again, KML had a strong quarter due to its diverse portfolio of fee-based assets and resilient cash flows," said Kean. KML reported third quarter net income of $42.4 million, up from $20.3 million in the third quarter of 2016, and distributable cash flow (DCF) of $77.2 million, the same as the comparable period in 2016. DCF for the quarter benefited from lower interest expense offset by higher sustaining capital and preferred dividend payments. Net income for the quarter was also impacted by a favorable change in foreign exchange loss. This item was largely the result of 2016 currency fluctuations on interest payable to intercompany loans with Kinder Morgan, Inc. The principal and interest on these loans were settled after the KML initial public offering.

In the third quarter, KML generated earnings per restricted voting share of $0.11, and produced DCF of $0.21 per restricted voting share relative to our declared dividend of $0.1625 per restricted voting share, resulting in $5.4 million of excess DCF above the company's dividend.

For 2017, KML expects to generate Adjusted EBITDA of between $380 and $390 million and DCF of approximately $315 to $320 million. The reduction in DCF expected for 2017 relative to the guidance of $320 million delivered last quarter is primarily attributable to lower capitalized equity financing costs driven by lower spending on the project. Additionally, from a total expected project cost of $7.4 billion, which includes capitalized financing costs and capital spent to date, TMEP has remaining estimated cash spend to completion, excluding interest, of approximately $6.0 billion as of the end of the third quarter.

Overview of Business Segments

"The Pipelines and Terminals segments' combined performance for the third quarter of 2017 was 1 percent higher than the same period during 2016, driven by higher capitalized equity financing costs (recognized in other income) due to spending on TMEP and increased variable use and ancillary fees at our Edmonton Area terminals. These contributions were partially offset by lower throughput on the Puget Sound pipeline system and a contracted throughput fee reduction at the Alberta Crude Terminal joint venture," said Anderson.

"The Terminals segment's Edmonton Area terminals benefited from record volume and steady rail car loading activity. Across the Edmonton Area tank storage and rail facilities, volume for the quarter was up almost 6 million barrels, or 30 percent, versus the third quarter of 2016, driven by increased demand for our product takeaway capabilities and optionality," noted John Schlosser, KML Terminals President.

The segment's Vancouver Wharves terminal benefited from enhancements made to its agricultural product handling system to accommodate growing export demand, with agricultural product volume for the quarter up approximately 45,000 metric tonnes, or 16 percent, compared to the third quarter of 2016.

Other News

KML Corporate

On Aug. 15, 2017, KML completed its offering of Series 1 cumulative redeemable minimum rate reset preferred shares (Series 1 Preferred Shares). The company issued 12 million Series 1 Preferred Shares for aggregate net proceeds of $293 million. The transaction was upsized from a base size of eight million shares as a result of strong investor demand. KML's Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.3308 per Series 1 Preferred Share ($1.3125 annualized), payable on November 15, 2017 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on October 31, 2017.

Pipelines

Since receiving Government of Canada approval in 2016, Trans Mountain has made steady positive progress on the regulatory, commercial and construction aspects of the TMEP. Limited construction activity began in September 2017 at the Westridge Terminal facilities. Clearing on key sections of the pipeline right of way is planned for the fourth quarter of 2017.

There are two judicial reviews underway in the British Columbia Supreme Court with respect to the province of British Columbia's (BC) TMEP environmental certificate (TMEP BCEAO). Hearings are scheduled in October and November 2017. Separate judicial reviews pending in the Federal Court of Appeal (FCA) challenging the process leading to the federal government's approval of TMEP were consolidated and heard by the court from Oct. 2 to Oct. 13, 2017. After provincial elections in British Columbia on May 9, 2017 and a subsequent non-confidence vote on the Liberal Throne speech, the NDP and Green Party formed a majority government. The new BC government sought and was granted limited intervenor status in the Federal Court of Appeal proceedings to argue against the process leading to the government's approval of the project. On Sept. 29, 2017, the BC government filed evidence in support of the TMEP BCEAO approval in one of the provincial proceedings. Decisions from the courts are expected in the coming months.

KML is confident that the National Energy Board, the Federal Government and the BC Government assessed and weighed the various scientific and technical evidence through a comprehensive review process, while taking into consideration varying interests on the Project. The approvals granted followed many years of engagement and consultation with communities, Aboriginal groups and individuals.

TMEP was approved by Order in Council on Dec. 1, 2016, with 157 conditions. The Province of BC stated its approval of the Project on Jan. 11, 2017, with 37 conditions. Trans Mountain has made about 120 filings with the NEB with respect to the 157 federal conditions. Trans Mountain has also made filings with the government of BC with respect to all of the provincial conditions consistent with our construction schedule. 

Terminals

Construction continues at the Base Line Terminal, a 50-50 joint venture crude oil merchant storage terminal being developed in Edmonton, Alberta by KML and Keyera. In the third quarter, on-site facility mechanical work was materially completed and significant progress was made on the off-site pipe rack and bridges required to connect the terminal with KML's other Edmonton-area facilities, including its North 40, Edmonton South, and Edmonton Rail terminals. Commissioning of the 12-tank, 4.8 million barrel new-build facility, which is fully contracted with long-term, firm take-or-pay agreements with creditworthy customers, is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2018 with tanks phased into service throughout that year. KML's investment in the joint venture will be approximately $396 million, including costs associated with the construction of a new pipeline segment that will be funded solely by KML, with total spend to date of $250 million and remaining spend in 2017 of $33 million. The project is forecast to be on schedule and on budget.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

KML's financial information has been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In addition to using measures prescribed by GAAP, this news release includes references to DCF (both in the aggregate and per share), net income before interest expense, taxes, DD&A and adjusted for Certain Items (Adjusted EBITDA), segment earnings before depreciation, depletion, and amortization (DD&A) and Certain Items (Segment EBDA before Certain Items) and Adjusted Earnings, all of which are financial measures that do not have any standardized meaning as prescribed by GAAP (non-GAAP measures). DCF, Adjusted EBITDA, Segment EBDA before Certain Items and Adjusted Earnings should not be considered alternatives to GAAP net cash provided by operating activities, net income or Segment EBDA, respectively, computed under GAAP or any other GAAP measures and such non-GAAP measures have important limitations as analytical tools. The computations of DCF, Adjusted EBITDA, Segment EBDA before Certain Items and Adjusted Earnings may differ from similarly titled measures used by others. Accordingly the use of such terms may not be comparable to similarly defined measures presented by other entities and investors should not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of results reported under GAAP. Management compensates for the limitations of these non-GAAP measures by reviewing our comparable GAAP measures, understanding the differences between the measures and taking this information into account in its analysis and its decision-making processes.

Certain Items are items that are required by GAAP to be reflected in net income, but typically either (i) do not have a cash impact (for example, unrealized and realized foreign exchange gains and losses on the KMI loans and asset impairments), or (ii) by their nature are separately identifiable from our normal business operations and in our view are likely to occur only sporadically (for example certain legal settlements and casualty losses).

DCF is net income before DD&A adjusted for (i) income tax expense and cash income taxes (paid) refunded; (ii) sustaining capital expenditures; and (iii) Certain Items. Distributable cash flow (DCF) is an important performance measure used by us and by external users of our financial statements to evaluate our performance and to measure and estimate our ability to generate cash earnings after servicing our debt and preferred stock dividends, paying cash taxes and expending sustaining capital, that could be used for discretionary purposes such as distributions or expansion capital expenditures. KML uses this performance measure and believes it provides users of its financial statements a useful performance measure reflective of our ability to generate cash earnings to supplement the comparable GAAP measure. DCF should not be used as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities computed under GAAP. We believe the GAAP measure most directly comparable to DCF is net income.

Segment EBDA before Certain Items is used by management in its analysis of segment performance and management of our business. The company believes that Segment EBDA before Certain Items is a useful measure of the operating performance because it measures segment operating results before DD&A and certain expenses that are generally not controllable by the operating managers of the respective business segments, such as general and administrative expense, unrealized and realized foreign exchange losses (or gains) on the KMI loans, interest expense, and income tax expense. General and administrative expenses include such items as employee benefits, insurance, rentals, certain litigation expenses, and shared corporate services including accounting, information technology, human resources and legal services. Certain general and administrative costs attributable to Trans Mountain are billable as flow through items to shippers and result in incremental revenues. Segment EBDA before Certain Items is calculated by adjusting Segment EBDA for the certain items attributable to a segment, as applicable, which are specifically identified in the footnotes to the accompanying tables. KML did not have any certain items that affected the segments for the periods discussed in this release.

Adjusted EBITDA is used as a liquidity measure by the company and external users of its financial statements, in conjunction with net debt, to evaluate certain leverage metrics. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for Certain Items, as applicable. We believe the GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA is net income. The accompanying tables do not include a reconciliation of forecasted net income to forecasted Adjusted EBITDA. The Company evaluates adjusted EBTIDA in total and does not allocate Adjusted EBITDA amongst equity interest holders as it views Adjusted EBITDA as a liquidity measure against the Company's overall leverage.

Adjusted Earnings is used by certain external users of our financial statements to assess the earnings of our business (excluding Certain Items) as another reflection of our ability to generate earnings. We believe the GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted Earnings is net income.

Reconciliations of each of the foregoing non-GAAP measures have been provided in the financial tables set out below.

Notes (In millions of Canadian dollars)

(1)

Excludes certain items:
3Q 2017 - General and administrative $(0.1), book tax $(0.1)
YTD 2017 - General and administrative $(2.6), book tax $1.4

(2)

For the periods prior to our May 30, 2017 initial public offering, amounts primarily represented interest expense on the KMI loans. The principal on the KMI loans was settled with proceeds from our initial public offering.

(3)

Primarily represents foreign currency gain (loss) on U.S. dollar denominated loans outstanding to KMI. The principal on the KMI loans was settled with proceeds from KML's initial public offering.

(4)

Included capitalized equity financing costs of:
3Q 2017 - $7.8
3Q 2016 - $4.6
YTD 2017 - $19.6
YTD 2016 - $12.8

(5)

The weighted average restricted voting shares outstanding for dividends calculation is based on the actual days in which the shares were outstanding for the period from May 30, 2017 to September 30, 2017, and also includes stock awards of restricted voting shares that participate in dividends. Therefore, the amounts differ from the GAAP weighted average restricted voting shares outstanding from the date of our formation.

(6)

Represents DCF per restricted voting share, including capitalized equity financing costs of $3.0 million, for the period from the May 30, 2017 initial public offering through September 30, 2017. If KML had been a public company for the entire nine month periods ended September 30, 2017, DCF per restricted voting share would have been $0.69.

(7)

Adjusted EBITDA is net income before certain items, plus DD&A, book taxes, and interest expense. Net income to Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled as follows, with any difference due to rounding:
