Knot Offshore Partners LP Earnings Release - Interim Results for the Period Ended June 30, 2014

ABERDEEN, Scotland--()--Highlights

For the second quarter of 2014, KNOT Offshore Partners LP (“KNOT Offshore Partners” or the “Partnership”):

  • Generated net income of $2.5 million and operating income of $9.6 million
  • Generated Adjusted EBITDA of $16.3 million (1)
  • Generated distributable cash flow of $8.1million (1)

Net income in the second quarter of 2014 was affected by $1.6 million in unrealized mark to market losses on derivatives and approximately $2.2 million in transaction costs on refinancing, acquisitions and preparation for the Partnership’s June 2014 common unit offering.

In addition, the Partnership:

  • Completed the acquisitions of the companies that own the Hilda Knutsen and Torill Knutsen, two 2013 built suezmax offshore shuttle tankers on time charters with Eni Trading & Shipping S.p.A. (“Eni”) for five fixed years and with five one-year options thereafter.
  • Completed a 4,600,000 common unit offering in June 2014 raising approximately $125.7 million in net proceeds and an additional $2.7 million contribution from the Partnership’s general partner to maintain its 2% ownership in the Partnership.
  • Entered into a new time charter agreement for the Windsor Knutsen with a subsidiary of the BG group for a fixed period of two years that commences in the fourth quarter of 2015. BG has three one-year options to extend the new charter. Beginning on July 29, 2014, a subsidiary of Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers AS (“KNOT”) has chartered the vessel at the same charter rate that would have been in effect had BG Group exercised its option to employ the Windsor Knutsen under its previous time charter.
  • Entered into new senior secured credit facilities for existing long term bank debt providing longer repayment profiles and an interest rate equal to LIBOR plus a margin of 2.125%.

On August 14, 2014, KNOT Offshore Partners paid a cash distribution of $0.4350 per unit with respect to the quarter ended June 30, 2014. This corresponds to a distribution of $1.74 per unit on an annualized basis.

Financial Results Overview

KNOT Offshore Partners reports net income of $2.5 million and operating income of $9.6 million for the second quarter of 2014, as compared to net income of $4.0 million and operating income of $7.4 million for the second quarter of 2013.

All vessels operated well throughout the second quarter of 2014 with 99.5% utilization (1.5 days offhire). Operating income increased by $2.2 million and finance expense increased by $3.6 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013.

In comparison to the first quarter of 2014 when the Partnership reported net income of $6.4 million, the lower net income in the second quarter of 2014 was a result of a) unrealized loss of $1.6 million on interest rate swap contracts, b) $1.8 million in costs associated with the repayment of existing debt ($1.1 million as previously capitalized loan costs were expensed, $0.3 million was paid as bank and legal fees related to the refinancing and acquisitions and compensation of $0.4 million was paid as compensation to banks for lost loan margin on repaid loans) and c) $0.4 million in costs in connection with preparation for the acquisitions of the Hilda Knutsen and Torill Knutsen and the June 2014 public offering.

In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), prior to April 16, 2013, the results of operations, cash flows and balance sheet of the Partnership have been carved out of the consolidated financial statements of KNOT. Accordingly, the Partnership’s financial statements prior to April 16, 2013 reflect allocation of certain expenses, including the mark-to-market value of interest rate swap derivatives. The realized and unrealized losses on derivatives, in the amount of $0.4 million for the second quarter of 2013 did not affect cash flow or the calculation of distributable cash flow, while the unrealized loss on derivatives for the second quarter of 2014 of $0.7 million decreased the distributable cash flow. The amount of realized and unrealized loss on derivatives for the second quarter of 2013 has been eliminated from the Partnership’s opening equity as of April 16, 2013, as none of KNOT’s interest rate swap agreements were transferred to the Partnership on completion of the Partnership’s initial public offering. The Partnership has no further obligations related to these contracts.

Acquisition

On June 30, 2014, the Partnership completed the acquisition of the ownership interests in the companies that own and operate the shuttle tankers Hilda Knutsen and Torill Knutsen from KNOT. The purchase price of the Hilda Knutsen was $166.0 million, net of $109.6 million of outstanding indebtedness related to the vessel. The purchase price of the Torill Knutsen was $169.0 million, net of $112.1 million of outstanding indebtedness related to the vessel. The Partnership funded the cash portion of the purchase prices with proceeds from the common unit offering in June 2014.

Each of the Hilda Knutsen and the Torill Knutsen is operating in the North Sea under time charters with Eni. The charters commenced upon delivery of the Hilda Knutsen and the Torill Knutsen in the third quarter of 2013 and each will terminate five years after delivery. Eni has options to extend each of the charters for up to five one-year periods. In the case of the Torill Knutsen, Eni has the option, at any time before May 31, 2016, to extend the charter term to ten years in exchange for a reduction in the hire rate.

Common unit offering

On June 27, 2014, the Partnership sold 4,600,000 common units, representing limited partner interests, in a public offering and granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase an additional 690,000 common units. The underwriters exercised their option to purchase an additional 640,000 common units in July 2014. In connection with the offering, the Partnership’s general partner contributed a total of $3.0 million ($2.7 million in June and $0.3 million in July) in order to maintain its 2% ownership of the Partnership.

The Partnership utilized the net proceeds from the offering and related capital contribution by the general partner to fund the cash portion of the purchase prices of the Hilda Knutsen and the Torill Knutsen and for general partnership purposes.

Refinancing

In June 2014, the Partnership entered into two new senior secured credit facilities in order to refinance its existing long term bank debt. The senior secured credit facilities consisted of a $20 million revolving credit facility and two term loans of $220 million and $140 million. Loans under the senior secured credit facilities bear interest at a rate per annum equal to LIBOR plus a margin of 2.125%. The term loans will mature in June 2019. The term loans are repayable in 20 consecutive quarterly instalments commencing in September 2014 with a balloon payment equal to 66% of the initial loan amount due at maturity. The revolving credit facility terminates in June 2019. The loans are guaranteed by the Partnership and secured by vessel mortgages. The $220 million facility and the $20 million revolving facility were drawn in June 2014 and were used to repay $198.9 million of existing debt secured by the Windsor Knutsen, Bodil Knutsen and Carmen Knutsen and a revolving facility and the seller credit from KNOT of $10.8 million related to the August 2013 acquisition of the Carmen Knutsen. The drawing of the new $140 million facility is expected to occur by September 30, 2014 and will replace existing bank debt of $126.2 million secured by the Fortaleza Knutsen and Recife Knutsen.

Windsor Knutsen

In April 2014, the Partnership was notified that BG Group would not exercise its option to extend the Windsor Knutsen time charter. The vessel was re-delivered on July 28, 2014. In order to comply with its obligations under the omnibus agreement between KNOT and the Partnership (the “Omnibus agreement”), on July 29, 2014 KNOT entered into a time charter for the vessel at a rate of hire that would have been in effect during the option period under the previous BG Group time charter. This charter will be effective until the new BG Group time charter described below commences in the fourth quarter of 2015.

In June 2014, the Partnership entered into a new time charter with a subsidiary of the BG Group for the Windsor Knutsen. The hire rate for the initial term of the new charter is in line with the rate in the previous charter. The new charter has an initial term of two years. BG Group has options to extend the term of the new charter for three additional one-year periods. The new charter will commence in the fourth quarter of 2015. If all three extension options are exercised, the Windsor Knutsen will operate for BG Group until the end of 2020.

Proposed Distribution Increase

The Partnership’s management has recommended to the Board an increase in the Partnership’s quarterly cash distribution of $0.055 (corresponding to an annualized increase of $0.22) which would become effective for the distribution for the quarter ending September 30, 2014. If this recommendation is approved, it would represent an increase of 12.6% over the current quarterly distribution. Any such increase would be conditioned upon the approval of such increase by the Board and the absence of any material adverse developments that would make such an increase inadvisable.

Financing and Liquidity

As of June 30, 2014, the Partnership had cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash of $35.1 million. Total interest bearing debt outstanding was $545.8 million. The average margin paid on the Partnership’s outstanding debt during the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was approximately 2.5% over LIBOR.

As of June 30, 2014, the Partnership had entered into various interest rate swap agreements for a total notional amount of $350.0 million to hedge against the interest rate risks of its variable rate borrowings. This includes the interest rate swap agreements of the newly acquired companies owning Hilda Knutsen and Torill Knutsen that were transferred to the Partnership in June 2014 in connection with the acquisitions.

Under the terms of the interest rate swap agreements, the Partnership will receive from the counterparty interest on the notional amount based on three-month LIBOR and will pay to the counterparty a fixed rate ranging from 1.25% to 1.46%.

As of June 30, 2014, the Partnership’s net exposure to floating interest rate fluctuations on its outstanding debt was approximately $160.7 million, based on total net interest bearing debt of approximately $545.8 million less the notional amount of its floating to fixed interest rate swaps of $350.0 million, and less cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash of $35.1 million.

As of June 30, 2014, the Partnership had the following long term debt structure:

         
June 30,
2014
(US $ in thousands)

Outlook

KNOT has entered into a contract to purchase three vessels from J. Lauritzen, of which two, the “Dan Sabia” and the “Dan Cisne”, are on long-term bareboat charters to Transpetro ending in the third quarter of 2023 and first quarter of 2024, respectively. The acquisition has been approved by the charterer. Upon consummation of the acquisition, we anticipate that the Dan Sabia and the Dan Cisne will be offered to the Partnership under the terms of the Omnibus Agreement. There can be no assurance that the Partnership will acquire such vessels from KNOT.

Under the Omnibus Agreement, the Partnership has the option to purchase the “Ingrid Knutsen”and the “Rachel Knutsen” from KNOT within 24 months of their delivery to charterers

Pursuant to the Omnibus Agreement, the Partnership also has the option to acquire from KNOT any offshore shuttle tankers that KNOT acquires or owns that are employed under charters for periods of five or more years.

The Board of Directors of the Partnership (the “Board”) believes that there are significant opportunities for growth for the Partnership, and the demand for offshore shuttle tankers will over time continue to grow based on identified projects.

The Board is pleased with the results of operations of the Partnership for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, which were consistent with expectations for the Partnership’s initial operations following the completion of its initial public offering, and is confident that the Partnership continues to be well positioned to grow its earnings and distributions.

In addition, on August 13, 2014, the Partnership’s general partner appointed Mr. Hiroaki Nishiyama to replace Mr. Yukuta Higurashi on the Board.

As of April 16, 2013, the financial statements of the Partnership as a separate legal entity are presented on a consolidated basis. Prior to April 16, 2013, the results of operations, cash flow and balance sheet have been carved out of the consolidated financial statements of KNOT and therefore are presented on a combined carve-out basis. The combined entity’s historical combined financial statements include assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses and cash flows directly attributable to the Partnership’s interests in the four vessels in its initial fleet. Accordingly, the historical combined carve-out interim financial statements prior to April 16, 2013 reflect allocations of certain administrative and other expenses, mark-to-market valuations of interest rate and foreign currency swap derivatives. The basis for the allocations are described in note 2 of the combined financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013 filed by KNOT Offshore Partners with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 15, 2014. These allocated costs have been accounted for as an equity contribution in the combined balance sheets.

APPENDIX A - RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Distributable Cash Flow (“DCF”)

Distributable cash flow represents net income adjusted for depreciation and amortization, unrealized gains and losses from derivatives, unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses, other non-cash items and estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures. Estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures, including estimated expenditures for drydocking, represent capital expenditures required to maintain over the long-term the operating capacity of, or the revenue generated by our capital assets. Distributable cash flow is a quantitative standard used by investors in publicly-traded partnerships to assist in evaluating a partnership’s ability to make quarterly cash distributions. Distributable cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other indicator of KNOT Offshore Partners’ performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. The table below reconciles distributable cash flow to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure.

Deferred revenue

Distributable cash flow   $8,113

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA refers to earnings before interest, other financial items, taxes, non-controlling interest, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure used by investors to measure our performance.

The Partnership believes that Adjusted EBITDA assists its management and investors by increasing the comparability of its performance from period to period and against the performance of other companies in its industry that provide Adjusted EBITDA information. This increased comparability is achieved by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods or companies of interest, other financial items, taxes and depreciation and amortization, which items are affected by various and possibly changing financing methods, capital structure and historical cost basis and which items may significantly affect net income between periods. The Partnership believes that including Adjusted EBITDA as a financial measure benefits investors in (a) selecting between investing in the Partnership and other investment alternatives and (b) monitoring the Partnership’s ongoing financial and operational strength in assessing whether to continue to hold common units. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other indicator of Partnership performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. The table below reconciles Adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure.
