This post was originally published on this site

Highlights

  • Reported total time charter revenues of $35.0 million for the second quarter of 2017 compared to $22.8 million of time charter revenues for the second quarter of 2016
  • Generated operating income of $23.1 million, net income of $12.2 million and partners’ interest in net income of $9.4 million for the second quarter of 2017 compared to operating income of $11.3 million, net income of $4.1 million and partners’ interest in net income of $4.1 million for the second quarter of 2016; operating income, net income and partners’ interest in net income were impacted by unrealized gains and losses on derivative instruments mainly on the Partnership’s share of equity in earnings (losses) of joint ventures in the second quarter of 2017 and 2016
  • Excluding the impact of the unrealized losses on derivatives for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 affecting the equity in earnings (losses) of joint ventures, operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 would have been $23.9 million, an increase of $8.4 million from $15.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016

  • On August 14, 2017, paid a $0.43 per unit distribution with respect to the second quarter of 2017, equivalent to $1.72 per unit on an annualized basis
  • On August 24, 2017, the Partnership announced its subsidiary had entered into a term-sheet to acquire an additional 23.5% interest in each of the joint ventures owning the FSRUs Neptune and GDF Suez Cape Ann and 23.5% of the related outstanding shareholder loans.

Richard Tyrrell, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer stated: “In the second quarter, our strong operational performance enabled us to generate positive financial results while we carried out the planned maintenance on the Höegh Gallant. Our long-term, fixed rate contracts continued to deliver strong cash flows and to support the Partnership’s distribution to our unitholders.

Additionally, I am delighted to announce the entry into a term-sheet with MOL for the acquisition of a further 23.5% of the joint venture companies that own the FSRUs Neptune and GDF Suez Cape Ann. The FSRUs have a minimum of 12 and 13 years remaining on their contracts, respectively. As with the recently announced strategic alliance between Höegh LNG and Qatar’s Nakilat, the Partnership’s proposed transaction with MOL demonstrates the ability of the Partnership and Höegh LNG to pursue diverse, value-generating FSRU opportunities to supplement our robust core pipeline.”

Financial Results Overview

As of January 1, 2017, the Partnership began consolidating Höegh LNG Colombia Holding Ltd., the owner of the entities that own and operate the Höegh Grace (the “Höegh Grace entities”) as a result of the acquisition of a 51% interest in the Höegh Grace entities. The revenues, expenses and net income in the consolidated income statement include 100% of the results of the Höegh Grace entities. This is reduced by the non-controlling interest in net income to arrive at the partners’ interest in net income which reflects the Partnership’s 51% interest in the net income of the Höegh Grace entities. Similarly, all of the assets and liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet include 100% of the Höegh Grace entities’ assets and liabilities. Total equity is split between partners’ capital (which includes the Partnership’s 51% interest in the net assets of the Höegh Grace entities) and the non-controlling interest. Management monitors the results of operations of the Höegh Grace entities based on the Partnership’s 51% interest in the Segment EBITDA of such entities and, therefore, subtracts the non-controlling interest in Segment EBITDA to present Segment EBITDA.

1 Segment EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure used by investors to measure financial and operating performance. Please see Appendix A for a reconciliation of Segment EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Segment EBITDA does not include adjustments for (i) principal payment of direct financing lease of $0.9 million and $0.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, (ii) amortization in revenues for above market contracts of $0.9 million and $0.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, (iii) non-controlling interest: amortization in revenues for above market contracts of $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, (iv) equity in earnings of JVs: amortization for deferred revenue of $(0.6) million and $(0.5) million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, (v) non-cash revenue: tax paid directly by charterer of $(0.4) million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, or (vi) non-controlling interest: non-cash revenue of $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017.

The Partnership reported net income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 of $12.2 million, an increase of $8.1 million from net income of $4.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The net income for both periods was impacted by unrealized gains and losses on derivative instruments mainly on the Partnership’s share of equity in earnings (losses) of joint ventures.

Excluding all of the unrealized gains and losses on derivative instruments, partners’ interest in net income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 would have been $10.0 million, an increase of $2.1 million from $7.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The increase for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was primarily due to the inclusion of the results of the Höegh Grace consolidated on January 1, 2017.

The partners’ interest in net income, which includes the Partnership’s 51% interest in the Höegh Grace entities, was $9.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, an increase of $5.3 million from net income of $4.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. Non-controlling interest in net income of $2.8 million was attributable to non-controlling interest for the 49% interest in the Höegh Grace entities not owned by the Partnership.

The PGN FSRU Lampung and the Höegh Grace were on-hire for the entire second quarter of 2017. The Höegh Gallant had 8 days off-hire due to scheduled maintenance in the second quarter of 2017 compared with 15 days off-hire for scheduled maintenance in the first quarter of 2016. 

Equity in earnings of joint ventures was $1.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, an increase of $3.5 million from equity in losses of $1.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The joint ventures own the Neptune and the GDF Suez Cape Ann. The increased earnings were mainly due to an unrealized loss of $0.8 million on derivative instruments in the Partnership’s share of the joint ventures for the three months ended June 30, 2017, compared to an unrealized loss on derivative instruments of $4.2 million for three months ended June 30, 2016. The joint ventures do not apply hedge accounting for interest rate swaps and all changes in fair value are included in equity in earnings (losses) of joint ventures. For the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Partnership’s share of operating income in the joint ventures was $5.8 million compared to $6.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The reduction was due in part to lower revenue as a result of lower recovery of cost incurred related to the operations of the Neptune in Turkey.

Operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $23.1 million, an increase of $11.8 million from operating income of $11.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. Excluding the impact of the unrealized losses on derivative instruments on the equity in earnings (losses) of joint ventures, operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 would have been $23.9 million, an increase of $8.4 million from $15.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The increase for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was primarily due to the inclusion of the results of the Höegh Grace as a result of the acquisition in January 2017.

Segment EBITDA2 was $29.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, an increase of $5.3 million from $24.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

Financing and Liquidity

As of June 30, 2017, the Partnership had cash and cash equivalents of $15.5 million and an undrawn portion of the $85 million revolving credit facility of $64.7 million. Current restricted cash for operating obligations of the PGN FSRU Lampung was $11.9 million and long-term restricted cash required under the Lampung facility was $14.1 million as of June 30, 2017. During the second quarter of 2017, the Partnership made quarterly repayments of $4.8 million on the Lampung facility, $3.3 million on the Gallant facility and $3.3 million on the Grace facility.

2 Segment EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure used by investors to measure financial and operating performance. Please see Appendix A for a reconciliation of Segment EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Segment EBITDA does not include adjustments for (i) principal payment of direct financing lease of $0.9 million and $0.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, (ii) amortization in revenues for above market contracts of $0.9 million and $0.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, (iii) non-controlling interest: amortization in revenues for above market contracts of $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, (iv) equity in earnings of JVs: amortization for deferred revenue of $(0.6) million and $(0.5) million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, (v) non-cash revenue: tax paid directly by charterer of $(0.4) million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, or (vi) non-controlling interest: non-cash revenue of $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017.

The Partnership’s book value and outstanding principal of total long-term debt including the was $557.3 million and $563.1 million, respectively, as of June 30, 2017, including long-term debt financing our FSRUs, and the revolving credit facility and seller’s credit note due to owners and affiliates. The long-term debt financing our FSRUs is repayable in quarterly installments of $11.4 million. This includes 100% of the long-term debt of the Höegh Grace entities which are consolidated. As of June 30, 2017, the Partnership’s total current liabilities exceeded total current assets by $22.5 million. This is partly a result of mark-to-market valuations of its interest rate swaps (derivative instruments) of $3.8 million and the current portion of long-term debt of $45.5 million being classified current while the restricted cash of $14.1 million associated with the Lampung facility is classified as long-term. The Partnership does not plan to terminate the interest rate swaps before their maturity and, as a result, the Partnership will not realize these liabilities. Further, the current portion of long-term debt reflects principal payments for the next twelve months which will be funded, for the most part, by future cash flows from operations. The Partnership does not intend to maintain a cash balance to fund the next twelve months’ net liabilities. The Partnership believes its current resources, including the undrawn balance under the revolving credit facility, are sufficient to meet the Partnership’s working capital requirements for its current business for the next twelve months.

As of June 30, 2017, the Partnership had outstanding interest rate swap agreements for a total notional amount of $434.8 million to hedge against the interest rate risks of its long-term debt under the Lampung, Gallant and Grace facilities. The Partnership applies hedge accounting for derivative instruments related to those facilities. The Partnership receives interest based on three month US dollar LIBOR and pays a fixed rate of 2.8%, 1.9% and 2.3% for the Lampung, Gallant and Grace facilities, respectively. The carrying value of the liability for derivative instruments was $8.7 million as of June 30, 2017. The effective portion of the changes in fair value of the interest rate swaps are recorded in other comprehensive income. Gain on derivative instruments for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $0.2 million, a decrease of $0.1 million from $0.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. Gain on derivative instruments for the three months ended June 30, 2017 related to the interest rate swaps for the Lampung, Gallant and Grace facilities, while the gain for the three months ended June 30, 2016 related to the interest rate swaps for the Lampung and Gallant facilities.

The Partnership’s share of the joint ventures is accounted for using the equity method. As a result, the Partnership’s share of the joint ventures’ cash, restricted cash, outstanding debt, interest rate swaps and other balance sheet items are reflected net on the line “accumulated losses in joint ventures” on the consolidated balance sheet and are not included in the balance sheet figures disclosed above.

In August 2017, the Partnership drew $4.0 million on the revolving credit facility. 

On August 14, 2017, the Partnership paid a cash distribution of $0.43 per unit with respect to the second quarter of 2017, equivalent to $1.72 per unit on an annualized basis. The total amount of the distribution was $14.4 million.

The Partnership filed claims for $0.2 million in the third quarter of 2017 for indemnification of the additional warranty cost for the Mooring for the three months ended June 30, 2017. In the third quarter of 2017, the Partnership was paid $1.1 million for warranty costs incurred as of June 30, 2017 based on claims filed for the second quarter of 2017 and earlier periods.

As discussed in the Outlook section below, the Partnership announced on August 24, 2017 its subsidiary had entered into a term-sheet to acquire an additional 23.5% interest in each of the joint ventures owning the Neptune and the GDF Suez Cape Ann and 23.5% of the related outstanding shareholder loans. The Partnership expects that it will finance the acquisition through raising equity, incurring debt or a combination of the two.

Outlook

In the fourth quarter of 2017, the Höegh Gallant has 7 days of scheduled maintenance and will be offhire.

The Partnership’s wholly owned subsidiary, Höegh LNG Partners Operating LLC, has entered into a term-sheet to acquire from Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (“MOL”) 23.5% of the shares of each of SRV Joint Gas Ltd. and SRV Joint Gas Two Ltd. (the “joint ventures”) as well as 23.5% of the outstanding related shareholder loans from MOL aggregating $1.5 million (the “Acquisition”). Closing of the Acquisition is subject to the execution of a definitive purchase agreement as well as certain other documentation and final board approvals. The Partnership expects the Acquisition to close by September 30, 2017. The purchase price of the Acquisition is $27.3 million including the 23.5% of outstanding shareholder loans from MOL. The Partnership currently owns 50% of each joint venture. Following the transaction, MOL will continue to hold 25% of each joint venture. The Partnership has completed a preliminary assessment of the accounting to be applied that following the transaction. Based on this assessment, it expects to continue to account for the joint ventures using the equity method.

Pursuant to the contribution, purchase and sale agreement the Partnership entered into with Höegh LNG with respect to the acquisition of 51% of the ownership interests in the Höegh Grace entities, the Partnership has a right of first offer to purchase the remaining 49% interest.

Pursuant to the omnibus agreement that the Partnership entered into with Höegh LNG at the time of the initial public offering, Höegh LNG is obligated to offer to the Partnership any floating storage and regasification unit (“FSRU”) or LNG carrier operating under a charter of five or more years.

The Partnership has, or may in the future have, the opportunity to acquire the FSRUs listed below: 

  • On May 26, 2015, Höegh LNG signed a contract with Penco LNG to provide an FSRU to service the Penco-Lirquén LNG import terminal to be located in Concepción Bay, Chile. The contract is for a period of 20 years and is subject to Penco LNG’s completing financing and obtaining necessary environmental approvals. In February 2017, Penco LNG informed Höegh LNG that the environmental approval had been temporarily halted by the legal system in Chile which is expected to delay permitting and completion of the infrastructure and the commencement of the FSRU contract.
  • On December 1, 2016, Höegh LNG signed an FSRU contract with Quantum Power Ghana Gas Limited (“Quantum Power”) for the Tema LNG import terminal located close to Accra in Ghana (“Tema LNG Project”). The contract is for a period of 20 years with a five year extension option for the charterer. The contract is subject to Quantum Power obtaining final governmental approval, financing and both parties’ board approval. A positive award of the final government approval will lead to a final investment decision for the infrastructure construction. The infrastructure construction for the project is also required to be completed prior to the delivery of the FSRU. Höegh LNG is expected to service the contract with the Höegh Giant (HHI Hull No. 2552) which was delivered from the shipyard on April 27, 2017.
  • On December 15, 2016, Höegh LNG signed an FSRU contract with Global Energy Infrastructure Limited (“GEI”) for GEI’s LNG import project in Port Qasim near Karachi, Pakistan. Time charter is for a period of 20 years with two five year extension options. GEI has a long-term LNG supply agreement with Qatargas and a consortium agreement that also includes Qatar Petroleum, ExxonMobil, Mitsubishi, Total and Höegh LNG, who will provide the infrastructure for the project subject to the final investment decision. The contract is subject to certain conditions and both parties’ board approval. The anticipated start of the FSRU contract is in the second half of 2018.
  • On July 18, 2017, Höegh LNG signed a memorandum of understanding with Qatar Gas Transport Company Ltd., known as Nakilat, with the aim of jointly developing new FSRU projects, where the LNG is sourced from Qatar. The structure is expected to be joint ventures to own and operate FSRUs for the joint projects.

Höegh LNG has three FSRUs on order. Pursuant to the terms of the omnibus agreement, the Partnership will have the right to purchase HHI Hull No. 2865, and HHI Hull No. 2909 and SHI Hull No.2220 (under a shipbuilding contract with Samsung Heavy Industries (“SHI”)) following acceptance by the respective charterer of the related FSRU, subject to reaching an agreement with Höegh LNG regarding the purchase price.

There can be no assurance that the Partnership will purchase any of these additional FSRUs.

Depending on the ultimate timing of the start of projects, allocations of the hulls to projects is subject to change.

Finally, although the Partnership’s option to purchase Höegh LNG’s interests in the FSRU Independence pursuant to the omnibus agreement has expired, the Partnership expects that Höegh LNG would offer the opportunity to purchase such interests in the event it receives the consent of the charterer of the Independence, AB Klapipedòs Nafta (“ABKN”). On December 5, 2014, the Independence began operating under its time charter with ABKN. The Partnership and Höegh LNG continue to pursue, but have not received ABKN’s consent to the acquisition of the Independence by the Partnership. The Independence is located in the port of Klaipeda and provides Lithuania with the ability to diversify its gas supply by giving it access to the world market for LNG. The Independence is moored adjacent to a purpose-built jetty connected to a pipeline connecting to the existing grid in Lithuania.

There can be no assurance that the Partnership will acquire the 23.5% interest in the joint ventures that own the Neptune and the GDF Suez Cape Ann from MOL. There can be no assurance that the Partnership will acquire the remaining 49% interest in the Höegh Grace entities or any vessels from Höegh LNG or of the terms upon which any such acquisition may be made.

HÖEGH LNG PARTNERS LP
UNAUDITED SEGMENT INFORMATION FOR THE QUARTER ENDED JUNE 30, 2017 AND 2016
(in thousands of U.S. dollars)

Segment information

There are two operating segments. The segment profit measure is Segment EBITDA, which is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and other financial items (gains and losses on derivative instruments and other items, net) less the non-controlling interest in Segment EBITDA. Segment EBITDA is reconciled to operating income and net income in the segment presentation below. The two segments are “Majority held FSRUs” and “Joint venture FSRUs.” In addition, unallocated corporate costs that are considered to benefit the entire organization, interest income from advances to joint ventures and interest expense related to the seller’s credit note and the outstanding balance on the $85 million revolving credit facility are included in “Other.”

For the three months ended June 30, 2017, Majority held FSRUs includes the direct financing lease related to the PGN FSRU Lampung, the operating leases related to the Höegh Gallant and the Höegh Grace. For the three months ended June 30, 2016, Majority held FSRUs includes only the direct financing lease related to the PGN FSRU Lampung and the operating lease related to the Höegh Gallant.

As of June 30, 2017 and 2016, Joint Venture FSRUs include two 50% owned FSRUs, the Neptune and the GDF Suez Cape Ann, that operate under long term time charters with one charterer.

The accounting policies applied to the segments are the same as those applied in the financial statements, except that i) Joint venture FSRUs are presented under the proportional consolidation method for the segment note to the Partnership’s financial statements and in the tables below, and under equity accounting for the consolidated financial statements and ii) non-controlling interest in Segment EBITDA is subtracted in the segment note and the tables below to reflect the Partnership’s interest in Segment EBITDA as the Partnership’s segment profit measure, Segment EBITDA. Under the proportional consolidation method, 50% of the Joint venture FSRUs’ revenues, expenses and assets are reflected in the segment note. Management monitors the results of operations of joint ventures under the proportional consolidation method and not the equity method of accounting. On January 1, 2017, the Partnership began consolidating its acquired 51% interest in the Höegh Grace entities. Since the Partnership obtained control of the Höegh Grace entities, it consolidates 100% of
the revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities of the Höegh Grace entities and the interest not owned by the Partnership is reflected as non-controlling interest in net income and non-controlling interest in total equity under US GAAP. Management monitors the results of operations of the Höegh Grace entities based on the Partnership’s 51% interest in Segment EBITDA of such entities and, therefore, subtracts the non-controlling interest in Segment EBITDA to present Segment EBITDA. The adjustment to non-controlling interest in Segment EBITDA is reversed to reconcile to operating income and net income in the segment presentation below. The following tables include the results for the segments for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016.

Appendix A: Segment EBITDA

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Segment EBITDA. EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, depreciation and amortization and taxes. Segment EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, depreciation and amortization, taxes and other financial items less non-controlling interest in Segment EBITDA. Other financial items consist of gains and losses on derivative instruments and other items, net (including foreign exchange gains and losses and withholding tax on interest expenses). Segment EBITDA is used as a supplemental financial measure by management and external users of financial statements, such as the Partnership’s lenders, to assess its financial and operating performance. The Partnership believes that Segment 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 the industry that provide Segment EBITDA information. This increased comparability is achieved by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods or companies of interest, other financial items, depreciation and amortization and taxes, 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 Segment EBITDA as a financial and operating measure benefits investors in (a) selecting between investing in it and other investment alternatives and (b) monitoring its ongoing financial and operational strength in assessing whether to continue to hold common units. Segment EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Segment EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income, and these measures may vary among other companies. Therefore, Segment EBITDA as presented below may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The following tables reconcile Segment EBITDA for each of the segments and the Partnership as a whole to net income (loss), the comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, for the periods presented:

Appendix B: Distributable Cash Flow

Distributable cash flow represents Segment EBITDA adjusted for cash collections on principal payments on the direct financing lease, amortization in revenues for above market contracts less non-controlling interest in amortization in revenues for above market contracts, non-cash revenue: tax paid directly by charterer less non-controlling interest: non-cash revenue, amortization of deferred revenues for the joint ventures, interest income‎, interest expense less amortization of debt issuance cost and fair value of debt assumed, other items (net), unrealized foreign exchange losses (gains), current income tax expense, net of uncertain tax position less non-cash income tax: tax paid directly by charterer, non-controlling interest in finance and tax items and other adjustments including indemnification paid by Höegh LNG for non-budgeted expenses and losses and estimated maintenance and replacement capital expenditures. Cash collections on the direct financing lease investment with respect to the PGN FSRU Lampung consist of the difference between the payments under time charter and the revenues recognized as a financing lease (representing the payment of the principal recorded as a receivable). Amortization in revenues for above market contracts consist of the non-cash amortization of the intangible for the above market time charter contract related to the acquisitions of the Höegh Gallant and Höegh Grace. Amortization of deferred revenues for the joint ventures accounted for under the equity method consist of non-cash amortization to revenues of charterer payments for modifications and drydocking to the vessels. Non-cash revenue: tax paid directly by charterer and non-cash income tax: tax paid directly by charterer consists of certain taxes paid by the charterer directly to the Colombian tax authorities on behalf of the Partnership’s subsidiaries which is recorded as a component of time charter revenues and current income tax expenses. 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, the Partnership’s capital assets.

Distributable cash flow is presented starting with Segment EBITDA taken from the total segment reporting using the proportional consolidation method for the Partnership’s 50% interests in the joint ventures as shown in Appendix A. Therefore, the adjustments to Segment EBITDA include the Partnership’s share of the joint venture’s adjustments. The Partnership believes distributable cash flow is an important liquidity measure used by management and investors in publicly traded partnerships to compare cash generating performance of the Partnership’ cash generating assets from period to period by adjusting for cash and non-cash items that could potentially have a disparate effect between periods, and to compare the cash generating performance for specific periods to the cash distributions (if any) that are expected to be paid to unitholders. The Partnership also believes distributable cash flow benefits investors in comparing its cash generating performance to other companies that account for time charters as operating leases rather than financial leases, or that do not have non-cash amortization of intangibles or deferred revenue. Distributable cash flow is a non-GAAP liquidity measure and should not be considered as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities, or any other measure of the Partnership’s liquidity or cash flows calculated in accordance with GAAP. Distributable cash flow excludes some, but not all, items that affect net cash provided by operating activities and the measures may vary among companies. For example, distributable cash flow does not reflect changes in working capital balances. Distributable cash flow also includes some items that do not affect net cash provided by operating activities. Therefore, distributable cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Distributable cash flow is not the same measure as available cash or operating surplus, both of which are defined by the Partnership’s partnership agreement. The first table below reconciles distributable cash flow to Segment EBITDA, which is reconciled to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure for Segment EBITDA, in Appendix A. Refer to Appendix A for the definition of Segment EBITDA. The second table below reconciles distributable cash flow to net cash provided by operating activities, the most directly comparable GAAP measures for liquidity.
