The Partnership's reported results include the impact of items that affect comparability between reporting periods. The impact of these items is excluded from adjusted results. See the section of this release entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Selected Items Impacting Comparability" and the tables attached hereto for information regarding selected items that the Partnership believes impact comparability of financial results between reporting periods, as well as for information regarding non-GAAP financial measures (such as adjusted EBITDA) and their reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

 

“PAA reported very strong first-quarter results, which meaningfully exceeded 2012's comparable results as well as our guidance,” said Greg L. Armstrong, Chairman and CEO of Plains All American. “This performance was underpinned by solid fee-based results in our Transportation and Facilities segments and outstanding execution in our margin-based Supply and Logistics segment. We have increased our 2013 adjusted EBITDA guidance by $135 million, representing an approximate 7% increase over our guidance issued at the beginning of the year. This updated guidance incorporates the benefit of our strong first-quarter performance as well as a slightly improved outlook for the second quarter of 2013.

“As of the distribution payable next week, PAA will have increased year-over-year distributions by 10%. PAA ended the quarter with solid distribution coverage, a strong balance sheet, credit metrics favorable to our targets and approximately $2.8 billion in committed liquidity.

“Looking forward, PAA's 2013 capital program and multi-billion dollar project portfolio provide visibility for continued distribution growth. As a result of advancements in several attractive projects over the last few months, we are also increasing our 2013 capital program by $300 million to $1.4 billion. These new projects include our recently announced Cactus pipeline that will connect our Permian Basin and Eagle Ford assets. Furthermore, we continue to make progress on a number of other projects across the US and Canada. ”

The following table summarizes selected financial information by segment for the first quarter of 2013:

The Partnership's reported results include the impact of items that affect comparability between reporting periods. The impact of these items is excluded from adjusted results. See the section of this release entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Selected Items Impacting Comparability" and the tables attached hereto for information regarding selected items that the Partnership believes impact comparability of financial results between reporting periods.

(2)

Certain of our non-GAAP financial measures may not be impacted by each of the selected items impacting comparability.

 

First-quarter 2013 Transportation adjusted segment profit increased 1% over comparable 2012 results. This slight increase was primarily related to benefits from the BP NGL acquisition and increased pipeline volumes, which were largely offset by higher operating expenses related to response and remediation costs from two pipeline releases and costs incurred inspecting idled pipelines to determine if these pipelines could be placed into service.

First-quarter 2013 Facilities adjusted segment profit increased 56% over comparable 2012 results. This increase was primarily related to capacity additions from the BP NGL and rail terminal acquisitions and recently completed organic growth projects.

First-quarter 2013 Supply and Logistics adjusted segment profit increased 107% over comparable 2012 results. This increase was primarily related to solid execution during favorable crude oil market conditions, higher lease gathering volumes and margins and increased NGL sales volumes and margins.

The Partnership will hold a conference call on May 7, 2013 (see details below). Prior to this conference call, the Partnership will furnish a current report on Form 8-K, which will include material in this news release as well as financial and operational guidance for the second quarter and full year of 2013.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Selected Items Impacting Comparability

To supplement our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, management uses additional measures that are known as “non-GAAP financial measures” (such as adjusted EBITDA and implied distributable cash flow) in its evaluation of past performance and prospects for the future. Management believes that the presentation of such additional financial measures provides useful information to investors regarding our performance and results of operations because these measures, when used in conjunction with related GAAP financial measures, (i) provide additional information about our core operating performance and ability to generate and distribute cash flow, (ii) provide investors with the financial analytical framework upon which management bases financial, operational, compensation and planning decisions and (iii) present measurements that investors, rating agencies and debt holders have indicated are useful in assessing us and our results of operations. These measures may exclude, for example, (i) charges for obligations that are expected to be settled with the issuance of equity instruments, (ii) the mark-to-market of derivative instruments that are related to underlying activities in another period (or the reversal of such adjustments from a prior period), (iii) items that are not indicative of our core operating results and business outlook and/or (iv) other items that we believe should be excluded in understanding our core operating performance. We have defined all such items as “selected items impacting comparability.” We consider an understanding of these selected items impacting comparability to be material to our evaluation of our operating results and prospects.

Although we present selected items that we consider in evaluating our performance, you should also be aware that the items presented do not represent all items that affect comparability between the periods presented. Variations in our operating results are also caused by changes in volumes, prices, exchange rates, mechanical interruptions, acquisitions and numerous other factors. These types of variations are not separately identified in this release, but will be discussed, as applicable, in management's discussion and analysis of operating results in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

Adjusted EBITDA and other non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measures for the periods presented in the tables attached to this release, and should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of, our condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto. In addition, the Partnership maintains on its website (www.paalp.com) a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA and certain commonly used non-GAAP financial information to the most comparable GAAP measures. To access the information, investors should click on the "Investor Relations" link on the Partnership's home page and then the "Non-GAAP Reconciliation" link on the Investor Relations page.

Forward Looking Statements

Except for the historical information contained herein, the matters discussed in this release are forward-looking statements that involve certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from results anticipated in the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, among other things, failure to implement or capitalize, or delays in implementing or capitalizing, on planned internal growth projects; unanticipated changes in crude oil market structure, grade differentials and volatility (or lack thereof); the availability of, and our ability to consummate, acquisition or combination opportunities; the successful integration and future performance of acquired assets or businesses and the risks associated with operating in lines of business that are distinct and separate from our historical operations; the occurrence of a natural disaster, catastrophe, terrorist attack or other event, including attacks on our electronic and computer systems; tightened capital markets or other factors that increase our cost of capital or limit our access to capital; maintenance of our credit rating and ability to receive open credit from our suppliers and trade counterparties; continued creditworthiness of, and performance by, our counterparties, including financial institutions and trading companies with which we do business; the effectiveness of our risk management activities; environmental liabilities or events that are not covered by an indemnity, insurance or existing reserves; declines in the volumes of crude oil, refined product and NGL shipped, processed, purchased, stored, fractionated and/or gathered at or through the use of our facilities, whether due to declines in production from existing oil and gas reserves, failure to or slowdown in the development of additional oil and gas reserves or other factors; shortages or cost increases of supplies, materials or labor; fluctuations in refinery capacity in areas supplied by our mainlines and other factors affecting demand for various grades of crude oil, refined products and natural gas and resulting changes in pricing conditions or transportation throughput requirements; our ability to obtain debt or equity financing on satisfactory terms to fund additional acquisitions, expansion projects, working capital requirements and the repayment or refinancing of indebtedness; the impact of current and future laws, rulings, governmental regulations, accounting standards and statements and related interpretations; non-utilization of our assets and facilities; the effects of competition; interruptions in service on third-party pipelines; increased costs or lack of availability of insurance; fluctuations in the debt and equity markets, including the price of our units at the time of vesting under our long-term incentive plans; the currency exchange rate of the Canadian dollar; weather interference with business operations or project construction; risks related to the development and operation of natural gas storage facilities; factors affecting demand for natural gas and natural gas storage services and rates; general economic, market or business conditions and the amplification of other risks caused by volatile financial markets, capital constraints and pervasive liquidity concerns; and other factors and uncertainties inherent in the transportation, storage, terminalling and marketing of crude oil and refined products, as well as in the storage of natural gas and the processing, transportation, fractionation, storage and marketing of natural gas liquids discussed in the Partnership's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Volumes associated with acquisitions represent total volumes (attributable to our interest) for the number of days or months we actually owned the assets divided by the number of days or months in the period.

(2)

Facilities total is calculated as the sum of: (i) crude oil, refined products and NGL terminalling and storage capacity; (ii) rail load and unload volumes multiplied by the number of days in the period and divided by the number of months in the period; (iii) natural gas storage capacity divided by 6 to account for the 6:1 mcf of gas to crude Btu equivalent ratio and further divided by 1,000 to convert to monthly volumes in millions; and (iv) NGL fractionation volumes multiplied by the number of days in the period and divided by the number of months in the period.
