11/01/2021

Williams (NYSE: WMB) today announced its unaudited financial results for the three and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2021.

Continued financial strength and stability drove performance across key metrics

  • Net income of $164 million, or $0.13 per diluted share (EPS)
  • Adjusted EPS of $0.34 per diluted share – up 26% from 3Q 2020
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $1.420 billion – up $153 million or 12% from 3Q 2020
  • Achieved record quarterly gathering volumes of 14 Bcf/d
  • Achieved record quarterly contracted transmission capacity of 23.8 Bcf/d
  • Debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA at quarter end of 4.04x, exceeding previous goal of 4.2x
  • Increasing full-year 2021 Adjusted EBITDA guidance to $5.525 billion midpoint – up 8% over 2020
  • Dividend coverage ratio of 2.17x (AFFO basis) for 3Q 2021
  • Announced capital allocation strategy including opportunistic stock buyback program of up to $1.5 billion

Resilient natural gas business in position of growth; strategically aligned with lower-carbon energy future

  • Executing significant portfolio of gas transmission growth projects driven by demand-pull customers
  • Second phase of Leidy South project will be in full service in time for winter heating season
  • Advancing G&P customer expansion project in Northeast and across other key basins
  • Announced MOU with Ørsted to explore clean energy opportunities in the U.S.

CEO Perspective

Alan Armstrong, president and chief executive officer, made the following comments:

“We achieved exceptional results in the third quarter with Adjusted EBITDA up 12% compared to the same period last year, driven by growth across our three major business segments including another quarter of record gas gathering and transmission volumes, increased revenues from transmission projects and favorable NGL marketing margins. Given our robust performance to date and continued strong fundamentals, we are raising our 2021 financial guidance midpoint for the second time this year to a level that is now 8% above our 2020 performance.

"Our natural gas focused strategy and unmatched infrastructure continue to be called upon by customers to meet continued growing demand for clean energy. The second phase of our Leidy South expansion will be in full service ahead of schedule and in time for this winter’s heating season. In addition, we are executing on another 1.5 Bcf/d in high-return expansions along existing Transco and Gulfstream corridors, underscoring the long-term demand commitments of our customers.

"From an environmental perspective, our highly reliable natural gas transmission and storage networks are extremely well-positioned to continue displacing higher carbon fuels while supporting the growth of renewable energy and responsibly sourced natural gas for LNG export. In addition, we have further advanced 12 solar projects and we are pursuing emerging opportunities like a hydrogen hub near our assets in southwestern Wyoming. As we work to balance sustainability and climate goals with growing energy demand, Williams is playing a leading role in a clean energy future by leveraging our infrastructure, our expertise and our strategic relationships to develop pragmatic solutions to today’s energy challenges."

GAAP Measures

  • Third-quarter 2021 net income decreased by $144 million compared to the prior year reflecting $46 million of higher joint venture earnings in the Northeast G&P segment, $37 million primarily from higher NGL prices in the West, $23 million of higher service revenues on Transco from expansion projects and $21 million of increased earnings from our new upstream operations, which was more than offset by a $277 million net unrealized loss in our Sequent business and higher operating and administrative expense. Beyond these business drivers there were also substantially offsetting increases in depreciation expense and decreases in the provision for income taxes.
  • The net unrealized losses on derivatives include $277 million related to derivative contracts within the Sequent segment that are not designated as hedges for accounting purposes. Sequent can experience significant earnings volatility from the fair value accounting required for the derivatives used to hedge a portion of the economic value of the underlying transportation and storage portfolio. However, the unrealized fair value measurement gains and losses are offset by valuation changes in the economic value of the underlying transportation and storage portfolio, which is not accounted for on a fair value basis.
  • Year-to-date 2021 net income improved by $800 million over the prior year, reflecting $190 million of higher commodity margins, $187 million of increased earnings from equity-method investments primarily within Northeast G&P, and $45 million of earnings from upstream operations acquired this year, partially offset by a $295 million change in net unrealized losses on derivatives, $69 million of higher depreciation and amortization expense and $79 million of higher operating and administrative costs. The improvement over last year also reflects the absence of $1.2 billion in pre-tax charges in 2020 related to impairments of equity-method investments, goodwill and goodwill at an equity investee, of which $65 million was attributable to noncontrolling interests. The provision for income taxes changed unfavorably by $289 million primarily due to higher pre-tax income.
  • The severe winter weather impact in February 2021 and the associated effect on commodity prices is estimated to have had a net favorable impact on our pre-tax results of approximately $77 million, primarily within our commodity margins and results from upstream operations.
  • Cash flow from operations for both the third quarter and year-to-date periods of 2021 increased as compared to 2020 primarily due to higher operating results exclusive of non-cash charges, higher distributions from equity-method investments and favorable changes in net working capital, partially offset by higher margin deposits associated with increasing derivative liabilities. Working capital changes compared to the prior year benefited from the absence of $284 million of rate refunds paid in 2020 associated with Transco's completed rate case.

Non-GAAP Measures

  • Third-quarter 2021 Adjusted EBITDA increased by $153 million over the prior year, driven by the previously described benefits from upstream operations, $43 million higher proportional EBITDA from Northeast G&P equity-method investments, and higher commodity margins. These improvements were partially offset by higher operating and administrative costs.
  • Year-to-date Adjusted EBITDA increased by $383 million over the prior year, driven by the previously described benefits from commodity margins and upstream operations, as well as $117 million higher proportional EBITDA from Northeast G&P equity-method investments. These improvements were partially offset by higher operating and administrative costs.
  • Third-quarter 2021 Adjusted Income improved by $77 million over the prior year, while year-to-date Adjusted Income improved by $215 million. Increases for both comparative periods were driven by the previously described impacts to net income, adjusted to remove the effects of unrealized losses on derivatives, the absence of 2020 impairments, and accelerated depreciation on decommissioning assets.
  • Third-quarter and year-to-date 2021 Available Funds From Operations increased by $217 million and $373 million, respectively, compared to the prior periods primarily due to higher operating results exclusive of non-cash charges and higher distributions from equity-method investments.

Note: Williams uses Modified EBITDA for its segment reporting. Definitions of Modified EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA and schedules reconciling to net income are included in this news release.

Transmission & Gulf of Mexico

  • Third-quarter and year-to-date Modified and Adjusted EBITDA improved compared to the prior year, as higher service revenues related to recent expansion projects, commodity margins, and proportional EBITDA from equity-method investments were partially offset by reduced revenues associated with lower Gulf of Mexico volumes and higher operating and administrative costs.

Northeast G&P

  • Third-quarter and year-to-date 2021 Modified and Adjusted EBITDA increased over the prior year driven by higher proportional EBITDA from equity-method investments associated with higher gathering volumes and the benefit of an increased ownership in Blue Racer Midstream, acquired in November 2020.
  • Gross gathering volumes for third-quarter 2021, including 100% of operated equity-method investments, increased by 5% over the same period in 2020.

West

  • Third-quarter 2021 Modified and Adjusted EBITDA improved compared to the prior year primarily due to higher commodity margins.
  • Year-to-date 2021 Modified and Adjusted EBITDA increased over the prior year primarily due to an estimated $55 million net favorable impact from the February 2021 severe winter weather, $98 million of higher commodity margins, and lower operating and administrative costs. These favorable changes were partially offset by lower service revenues, primarily lower Barnett deferred revenue amortization and the absence of a deficiency fee, as well as lower proportional EBITDA from equity method investments driven by reduced transportation volumes on Overland Pass Pipeline.

Sequent

  • Third-quarter and year-to-date 2021 Modified and Adjusted EBITDA reflect the results of this business acquired in July 2021. The Modified EBITDA loss was driven by $277 million of net unrealized losses on derivatives, which are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. The related derivative contracts are not designated as hedges for accounting purposes. Sequent can experience significant earnings volatility from the fair value accounting required for the derivatives used to hedge a portion of the economic value of the underlying transportation and storage portfolio. However, the unrealized fair value measurement gains and losses are offset by valuation changes in the economic value of the underlying transportation and storage portfolio, which is not accounted for on a fair value basis.

Other

  • Third-quarter and year-to-date 2021 Modified and Adjusted EBITDA improved compared to the prior year primarily due to oil and gas producing properties acquired this year. The year-to-date increase reflects an estimated $22 million attributable to the February 2021 severe winter weather.

2021 Financial Guidance

The company now expects 2021 Adjusted EBITDA between $5.5 billion and $5.55 billion, a $325 million midpoint increase from guidance originally issued in February 2021. Also, we are increasing Available Funds from Operations guidance to a range of $4.025 billion to $4.075 billion. The leverage ratio midpoint has been updated to ~4.0x versus ~4.25x prior for year-end 2021 and growth capex is reaffirmed at between $1 billion to $1.2 billion. Importantly, Williams expects to generate excess cash flow (available funds from operations less capital expenditures and dividends), allowing it to retain financial flexibility.

Non-GAAP Measures

This news release and accompanying materials may include certain financial measures – adjusted EBITDA, adjusted income (“earnings”), adjusted earnings per share, available funds from operations and dividend coverage ratio – that are non-GAAP financial measures as defined under the rules of the SEC.

Our segment performance measure, modified EBITDA, is defined as net income (loss) before income (loss) from discontinued operations, income tax expense, net interest expense, equity earnings from equity-method investments, other net investing income, impairments of equity investments and goodwill, depreciation and amortization expense, and accretion expense associated with asset retirement obligations for nonregulated operations. We also add our proportional ownership share (based on ownership interest) of modified EBITDA of equity-method investments.

Adjusted EBITDA further excludes items of income or loss that we characterize as unrepresentative of our ongoing operations. Such items are excluded from net income to determine adjusted income. Management believes this measure provides investors meaningful insight into results from ongoing operations.

Available funds from operations is defined as cash flow from operations excluding the effect of changes in working capital and certain other changes in noncurrent assets and liabilities, reduced by preferred dividends and net distributions to noncontrolling interests.

This news release is accompanied by a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their nearest GAAP financial measures. Management uses these financial measures because they are accepted financial indicators used by investors to compare company performance. In addition, management believes that these measures provide investors an enhanced perspective of the operating performance of assets and the cash that the business is generating.

Neither adjusted EBITDA, adjusted income, nor available funds from operations are intended to represent cash flows for the period, nor are they presented as an alternative to net income or cash flow from operations. They should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for a measure of performance prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles.
