Western Gas Announces Second-Quarter 2014 Results

August 5, 2014

HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/05/14 -- Western Gas Partners, LP (NYSE: WES) ("WES" or the "Partnership") and Western Gas Equity Partners, LP (NYSE: WGP) ("WGP") today announced second-quarter 2014 financial and operating results.

WESTERN GAS PARTNERS, LP

Net income available to limited partners for the second quarter of 2014 totaled $67.0 million, or $0.57 per common unit (diluted). For the second quarter of 2014, Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $167.3 million and Distributable cash flow(1) was $137.0 million, resulting in a Coverage ratio(1) of 1.30 times for the period.

Total throughput attributable to WES for natural gas assets for the second quarter of 2014 averaged 3.6 Bcf/d, which was 5% above the prior quarter and 13% above the second quarter of 2013. Total throughput for crude/NGL assets for the second quarter of 2014 averaged 115 MBbls/d, which was 46% above the prior quarter.

Capital expenditures attributable to WES on a cash basis, including equity investments but excluding acquisitions, totaled $199.3 million during the second quarter of 2014. Of this amount, maintenance capital expenditures were $11.7 million, or 7% of Adjusted EBITDA(1). Capital expenditures attributable to WES on an accrual basis, including equity investments but excluding acquisitions, totaled $205.2 million during the second quarter of 2014.

"Our portfolio's solid second-quarter performance was highlighted by the successful start-up of our Lancaster Plant in the DJ Basin complex, which is currently running at capacity," said Chief Executive Officer, Don Sinclair. "Given the continued high activity level in the DJ Basin, as well as additional capital needed to repurpose a portion of our Haley system to handle rich gas from Anadarko's West Texas drilling activity, we now believe our full-year 2014 total capital expenditures will be between $720 million and $770 million."

WES previously declared a quarterly distribution of $0.650 per unit for the second quarter of 2014, representing a 4% increase over the prior quarter's distribution and a 16% increase over the second-quarter 2013 distribution of $0.56 per unit. The distribution will be paid on August 13, 2014, to unitholders of record at the close of business on July 31, 2014. The second-quarter 2014 Coverage ratio(1) of 1.30 times is based on the quarterly distribution of $0.650 per unit.

WESTERN GAS EQUITY PARTNERS, LP

WGP indirectly owns the 2% general partner interest in WES, 100% of the incentive distribution rights in WES and 49,296,205 WES common units. Net income available to limited partners for the second quarter of 2014 totaled $55.3 million, or $0.25 per common unit (diluted).

WGP previously declared a quarterly distribution of $0.27125 per unit for the second quarter of 2014, representing a 9% increase over the prior quarter's distribution and a 37% increase over the second-quarter 2013 distribution of $0.19750. The distribution will be paid on August 22, 2014, to unitholders of record at the close of business on July 31, 2014. WGP will receive distributions from WES of $60.3 million attributable to the second quarter and will pay out $59.4 million in distributions for the same period.

This news release contains forward-looking statements. Western Gas Partners and Western Gas Equity Partners believe that their expectations are based on reasonable assumptions. No assurance, however, can be given that such expectations will prove to have been correct. A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the projections, anticipated results or other expectations expressed in this news release. These factors include the ability to meet financial guidance or distribution growth expectations; the ability to safely and efficiently operate WES's assets; the ability to obtain new sources of natural gas supplies; the effect of fluctuations in commodity prices and the demand for natural gas and related products; the ability to meet projected in-service dates for capital growth projects; construction costs or capital expenditures exceeding estimated or budgeted costs or expenditures; and the other factors described in the "Risk Factors" sections of WES's and WGP's most recent Forms 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and in their other public filings and press releases. Western Gas Partners and Western Gas Equity Partners undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements.

Western Gas Partners, LP Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures

Below are reconciliations of (i) WES's Distributable cash flow (non-GAAP) to net income attributable to Western Gas Partners, LP (GAAP), (ii) Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Western Gas Partners, LP ("Adjusted EBITDA") (non-GAAP) to net income attributable to Western Gas Partners, LP (GAAP) and to net cash provided by operating activities (GAAP), and (iii) Adjusted gross margin attributable to Western Gas Partners, LP ("Adjusted gross margin") (non-GAAP) to operating income (GAAP), as required under Regulation G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Management believes that WES's Distributable cash flow, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted gross margin, and Coverage ratio are widely accepted financial indicators of WES's financial performance compared to other publicly traded partnerships and are useful in assessing its ability to incur and service debt, fund capital expenditures and make distributions. Distributable cash flow, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted gross margin and Coverage ratio, as defined by WES, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Therefore, WES's Distributable cash flow, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted gross margin, and Coverage ratio should be considered in conjunction with net income and other applicable performance measures, such as operating income or cash flows from operating activities.

Distributable Cash Flow

WES defines Distributable cash flow as Adjusted EBITDA, plus interest income, less net cash paid for interest expense (including amortization of deferred debt issuance costs originally paid in cash, offset by non-cash capitalized interest), maintenance capital expenditures, and income taxes.
