Cheniere Energy, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Results

HOUSTON, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cheniere Energy, Inc. ("Cheniere") (NYSE MKT: LNG) reported net income1 of $109.7 million, or $0.48 per share (basic and diluted), for the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to a net loss1 of $291.1 million, or $1.28 per share (basic and diluted), for the comparable 2015 period. Net Loss, As Adjusted2 was $78.1 million, or $0.34 per share (basic and diluted), for the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to a Net Loss, As Adjusted of $154.8 million, or $0.68 per share (basic and diluted), for the comparable 2015 period.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, Cheniere reported a net loss of $610.0 million, or $2.67 per share (basic and diluted), compared to a net loss of $975.1 million, or $4.30 per share (basic and diluted), for the comparable 2015 period. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, Net Loss, As Adjusted was $447.2 million, or $1.95 per share (basic and diluted), compared to a Net Loss, As Adjusted of $653.3 million, or $2.88 per share (basic and diluted), for the comparable 2015 period.

For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016, Net Loss, As Adjusted excludes the impact of changes in the fair value of our interest rate, commodity and foreign currency exchange ("FX") derivatives, loss on early extinguishment of debt, restructuring expense, amortization of the beneficial conversion feature related to certain Class B units of Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P. ("Cheniere Partners") (NYSE MKT: CQP) and impairment expense. Loss on early extinguishment of debt was associated with the write-off of debt issuance costs by Sabine Pass Liquefaction, LLC ("SPL") and Cheniere Corpus Christi Holdings, LLC ("CCH") in connection with the refinancing of a portion of their credit facilities, by Sabine Pass LNG, L.P. ("SPLNG") as a result of the redemption of its senior notes, and by Cheniere Creole Trail Pipeline, L.P. as a result of the prepayment of its outstanding term loan. For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015, Net Loss, As Adjusted excludes the impact of changes in the fair value of interest rate, commodity and FX derivatives, loss on early extinguishment of debt related to the write-off of debt issuance costs by SPL primarily in connection with the refinancing of a portion of its credit facilities, the write-off of debt issuance costs by CCH primarily in connection with the termination of a portion of its credit facility and note commitments, restructuring expense, amortization of the beneficial conversion feature and impairment expense.

"The fourth quarter of 2016 was another milestone quarter for Cheniere, as today we report financial results driven by nearly a full quarter of LNG production from the first two Trains at Sabine Pass," said Jack Fusco, Cheniere's President and CEO. "Transition and execution will remain central themes for Cheniere in 2017, as we expect Trains 3 and 4 at Sabine Pass to begin commercial operations, with Train 3 having produced its first commissioning cargo in January. The financial and operational results we are reporting today reflect our employees' steadfast dedication to execution on our goals."

Fourth Quarter 2016 Highlights

  • In November 2016, the date of first commercial delivery was reached under the 20-year LNG Sale and Purchase Agreement ("SPA") with BG Gulf Coast LNG, LLC relating to the first train of the Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project (defined below).
  • In November 2016, SPLNG redeemed all of its outstanding $420 million in aggregate principal amount of 6.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2020 (the "2020 Notes") and repaid all of its outstanding $1,665.5 million in aggregate principal amount of 7.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2016 (the "2016 Notes"). Subsequent to the redemption of the 2020 Notes and the repayment of the 2016 Notes, the Cheniere Partners complex has no long-term debt maturity until 2020.
  • In December 2016, CCH issued an aggregate principal amount of $1.5 billion of 5.875% Senior Secured Notes due 2025. Net proceeds from the offering were used to prepay a portion of the outstanding borrowings under CCH's credit facility.
  • In December 2016, CCH entered into a $350 million Working Capital Facility Agreement that will be used primarily for certain working capital requirements related to developing and placing into operation the CCL Project (defined below).
  • In December 2016, Moody's Investors Service upgraded SPL's senior secured rating to Ba1 from Ba2. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, in January 2017 Fitch Ratings assigned a BBB- (Investment Grade) rating to senior secured debt issued by SPL.
  • In December 2016, Cheniere terminated negotiations with the conflicts committee of the board of directors of Cheniere Energy Partners LP Holdings, LLC ("Cheniere Partners Holdings") (NYSE MKT: CQH) regarding Cheniere's previously announced non-binding proposal to acquire all of the publicly held shares of Cheniere Partners Holdings not already owned by Cheniere in a stock-for-stock merger transaction. Subsequent to the termination of negotiations, Cheniere acquired 5,785,161 shares of Cheniere Partners Holdings through individually negotiated transactions with shareholders of Cheniere Partners Holdings.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Results

Our financial results are reported on a consolidated basis. Our ownership interest in Cheniere Partners as of December 31, 2016 consisted of 100% ownership of the general partner of Cheniere Partners and 82.6% ownership interest in Cheniere Partners Holdings which owns a 55.9% limited partner interest in Cheniere Partners.

Adjusted EBITDA2 for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016 was $134.2 million and $153.6 million, respectively, compared to losses of $90.6 million and $228.6 million, respectively, for the comparable 2015 periods. During the three months ended December 31, 2016, a total of 24 LNG cargoes were loaded and exported from the Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project, none of which were commissioning cargoes.

Total operating costs and expenses increased $139.7 million and $592.3 million during the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016 compared to the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015, respectively, generally as a result of the commencement of operations of Train 1 and Train 2 of the Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project in May and September 2016, respectively. Depreciation and amortization expense increased during the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016 from the comparable 2015 periods as we began depreciation of our assets related to Train 1 and Train 2 of the Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project upon reaching substantial completion. Selling, general and administrative expense during the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016 decreased from the comparable 2015 periods, primarily due to the timing of share-based compensation recognition and the recognition of certain employee-related costs within restructuring expense during the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016 historically reported in selling, general and administrative expense, a reduction in certain professional services fees, and reallocation of costs from selling, general and administrative activities to operating and maintenance activities following commencement of operations at the Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project.

As a result of restructuring efforts initiated in 2015, during the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016 we recorded $12.2 million and $61.4 million, respectively, of restructuring charges and other costs associated with restructuring and operational efficiency initiatives compared to $60.8 million for each of the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015 for which the majority of these charges required, or will require, cash expenditure. Included in these amounts are $3.9 million and $46.9 million for share-based compensation for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016, respectively, and $57.9 million for each of the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015. Charges related to restructuring efforts were recorded within restructuring expense on our Consolidated Statements of Operations and substantially all related to severance and other employee-related costs.

Included in selling, general and administrative expense were share-based compensation expenses of $7.0 million and $38.2 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016, respectively, compared to $17.2 million and $102.4 million for the comparable 2015 periods, respectively.

Liquefaction Projects Update

Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project

Through Cheniere Partners, we are developing up to six Trains at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal adjacent to the existing regasification facilities (the "Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project"). Each train is expected to have a nominal production capacity, which is prior to adjusting for planned maintenance, production reliability, and potential overdesign, of approximately 4.5 million tonnes per annum ("mtpa") of LNG.

The Trains are in various stages of operation, construction, and development.

  • Construction on Trains 1 and 2 began in August 2012 and substantial completion was achieved in May 2016 and September 2016, respectively. Substantial completion is achieved upon the completion of construction, commissioning and the satisfaction of certain performance tests.
  • Construction on Trains 3 and 4 began in May 2013, and as of December 31, 2016, the overall project completion percentage for Trains 3 and 4 was approximately 95.5%, which is ahead of the contractual schedule. In September 2016, commissioning activities commenced on Train 3. Based on the current construction schedule, Cheniere Partners expects to reach substantial completion for Train 3 in the first quarter of 2017 and Train 4 in the second half of 2017.
  • Construction on Train 5 began in June 2015, and as of December 31, 2016, the overall project completion percentage for Train 5 was approximately 52.4%, which is ahead of the contractual schedule. Engineering, procurement, subcontract work and construction were approximately 96.6%, 76.6%, 43.7% and 11.3% complete, respectively. Based on the current construction schedule, Cheniere Partners expects Train 5 to reach substantial completion in the second half of 2019.
  • Train 6 is currently under development, with all necessary regulatory approvals in place. Cheniere Partners expects to make a final investment decision and commence construction on Train 6 upon, among other things, entering into an engineering, procurement, and construction contract, entering into acceptable commercial arrangements, and obtaining adequate financing.

Corpus Christi LNG Terminal

We are developing up to three Trains near Corpus Christi, Texas (the "CCL Project"). Each train is expected to have a nominal production capacity, which is prior to adjusting for planned maintenance, production reliability, and potential overdesign, of approximately 4.5 mtpa of LNG.

The Trains are in various stages of construction and development:

  • Construction on Trains 1 and 2 began in May 2015, and as of December 31, 2016, the overall project completion percentage for Trains 1 and 2 was approximately 49.2%, which is ahead of the contractual schedule. Engineering, procurement and construction were approximately 100%, 65.6% and 21.4% complete, respectively. Based on the current construction schedule, we expect Trains 1 and 2 to reach substantial completion in 2019.
  • Train 3 is under development, with all necessary regulatory approvals in place. We have entered into an SPA for approximately 0.8 mtpa of LNG volumes that commence with Train 3 and expect to commence construction upon entering into additional SPAs and obtaining adequate financing.

Additionally, we are developing two additional trains adjacent to the CCL Project and have initiated the regulatory approval process with respect to those Trains.

As of December 31, 2016, we had cash and cash equivalents of $875.8 million available to Cheniere. In addition, we had current and non-current restricted cash of $950.7 million (which included current and non-current restricted cash available to us and our subsidiaries) designated for the following purposes: $270.5 million for the CCL Project, $358.0 million for the Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project, $247.0 million for restricted purposes under the terms of Cheniere Partners' credit facilities and $75.2 million for other restricted purposes.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

Regulation G Reconciliations

In addition to disclosing financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the accompanying news release contains non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted EBITDA, Net Loss, As Adjusted and Net Loss per share, As Adjusted are non-GAAP financial measures that we use to facilitate comparisons of operating performance across periods. These non-GAAP measures should be viewed as a supplement to and not a substitute for our U.S. GAAP measures of performance and the financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP and reconciliations from these results should be carefully evaluated.

Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) attributable to Cheniere before net income (loss) attributable to the non-controlling interest, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for certain non-cash items, other non-operating income or expense items, and other items not otherwise predictive or indicative of ongoing operating performance, as detailed in the following reconciliation. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to represent cash flows from operations or net income (loss) as defined by U.S. GAAP and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA provides relevant and useful information to management, investors and other users of our financial information in evaluating the effectiveness of our operating performance in a manner that is consistent with management's evaluation of business performance. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is widely used by investors to measure a company's operating performance without regard to items such as interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization which vary substantially from company to company depending on capital structure, the method by which assets were acquired and depreciation policies. Further, the exclusion of certain non-cash items, other non-operating income or expense items, and items not otherwise predictive or indicative of ongoing operating performance enables comparability to prior period performance and trend analysis.

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by taking net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders before net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interest, interest expense, net of capitalized interest, changes in the fair value and settlement of our interest rate derivatives, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and adjusting for the effects of certain non-cash items, other non-operating income or expense items, and other items not otherwise predictive or indicative of ongoing operating performance, including the effects of modification or extinguishment of debt, impairment expense, changes in the fair value of our commodity and FX derivatives and non-cash compensation expense. We believe the exclusion of these items enables investors and other users of our financial information to assess our sequential and year-over-year performance and operating trends on a more comparable basis and is consistent with management's own evaluation of performance.

Net Loss, As Adjusted represents net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders and Net Loss per share, As Adjusted represents Cheniere's basic and diluted earnings per share, in each case adjusted for certain non-cash items, other non-operating income or expense items and other items not otherwise predictive or indicative of ongoing operating performance, net of the portion attributable to non-controlling interests, including changes in the fair value of our interest rate, commodity and FX derivatives, the effects of modifications or extinguishments of debt, amortization of the beneficial conversion feature of certain CQP Class B units, costs related to restructuring activities, and impairment expense. Net Loss, As Adjusted and Net Loss per share, As Adjusted are presented because we believe they are useful tools for assessing the operating performance of Cheniere. Net Loss, As Adjusted and Net Loss per share, As Adjusted are not intended to represent net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders and net income (loss) per share attributable to common stockholders, the most comparable U.S. GAAP measures, respectively, as indicators of operating performance, and are not necessarily comparable to measures reported by other companies.
