Press Release

Cypress Energy Partners, L.P. Announces Name Change to Cypress Environmental Partners, L.P. and Record Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2019 Results

Company Release - 3/5/2020 6:08 PM ET

TULSA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cypress Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE:CELP) announced today that it is changing its name to Cypress Environmental Partners, L.P., effective March 16, 2020. This change reflects the fact that Cypress has always been an environmental services company, helping its customers protect the environment with its essential services. The name change should eliminate confusion that the “energy” name created with prospective investors.

On March 16, 2020, CELP’s common units will begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the new name, but the ticker symbol will remain the same (CELP). In addition to this name change, the names of CELP’s General Partner and CELP’s primary operating subsidiary will be changed to Cypress Environmental Partners GP, LLC and Cypress Environmental Partners, LLC, respectively. Along with these name changes, CELP is also launching its new website at www.cypressenvironmental.biz.

Fourth quarter 2019 results compared to fourth quarter of 2018 and other highlights:

  • Net income of $4.9 million, an increase of 87%;
  • Revenue of $91.2 million, an increase of 3%;
  • Gross margin of $13.5 million, an increase of 12%;
  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to limited partners of $7.5 million, an increase of 21%;
  • Distributable Cash Flow of $4.8 million, an increase of 56%;
  • Net debt leverage ratio of 1.90x, compared to 2.64x;
  • Cash distribution of $0.21 per unit, consistent with the last eleven quarters;
  • Common unit distribution coverage ratio of 1.89x for the fourth quarter of 2019 and 1.78x for the year; and
  • Cash and cash equivalents of $15.7 million, an increase of $3.0 million or 23% from September 30, 2019.

Peter C. Boylan III, CELP’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are pleased to report an excellent 2019, including a strong fourth quarter driven by the broad and growing suite of environmental services we offer our customers. Our two inspection and integrity segments represented 97% of our revenue and 86% of our gross margin during 2019. During the fourth quarter, we continued to strengthen our balance sheet, reducing our long-term debt. Our company continues to generate a strong free cash flow, offering our investors an attractive yield and investment in a growing industry.

“Last fall, one of our investors suggested that our current name is confusing, because we have never been a fossil fuel or oilfield services company and suggested that we change our name to better reflect the services we have always provided to our customers. This investor further commented that all of our services are focused on protecting the environment, which is important to everyone, and that many investors don’t even consider or evaluate us because of our name. I am pleased that we were able to secure the necessary trademarks to make this change.

“In 2018 our sponsor, Cypress Energy Holdings, LLC (“CEH”), completed two acquisitions to further broaden our collective suite of environmental services. Importantly, these acquisitions also provided entry into the municipal water industry, whereby we can offer our traditional inspection services, including corrosion and nondestructive testing services, as well as in-line inspection (“ILI”). We remain excited about entering the ILI industry with next generation 5G ultra high-resolution magnetic flux leakage (“MFL”) ILI technology called EcoVision UHD, capable of helping pipeline owners and operators better manage the integrity of their assets in both the municipal water and energy industries.

“We believe we are the only technology provider today capable of offering this service to the large and diverse municipal water industry that provides drinking water to our communities. One of the acquisitions also materially expands our environmental service capabilities with water treatment services for both the onshore and offshore industrial and energy markets. Today customers are more focused than ever on protecting the environment and improving their operating procedures. We have spent the past eighteen months investing in both companies to prepare to offer them for drop down to CELP during 2020. Our ownership interests continue to remain fully aligned with our unitholders, as our General Partner and insiders collectively own approximately 76% of our total common and preferred units.”

Mr. Boylan further stated, “The U.S.Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration ("PHMSA") recently finalized a rule that significantly revises certain aspects of the hazardous liquid pipeline safety regulations codified at Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations Parts 190-199. Nearly nine years in the making, the final rule is PHMSA's response to several significant hazardous liquid pipeline accidents that have occurred in recent years; most notably the 2010 crude oil spill near Marshall, Michigan. The final rule also addresses 2011 and 2016 outstanding congressional mandates and U.S. Government Accountability Office recommendations. Effective July 1, 2020, this rule expands requirements to address risks to pipelines outside of environmentally sensitive and populated areas, requiring the performance of periodic integrity assessments and the use of leak detection systems for all regulated hazardous liquids pipelines (except for offshore gathering and regulated rural gathering lines). In addition, the rule makes changes to the integrity management requirements, including revising data integration requirements and emphasizing the use of in-line inspection technology. The long-term increasing demand for environmental services such as pipeline inspection, integrity services, and water treatment solutions remains strong due to our nation’s aging pipeline infrastructure, and we believe we are well-positioned to capitalize on these opportunities.

“In the fourth quarter 2019, we sold approximately 86% of our pre-petition receivables from PG&E in a non-recourse sale to a third party and settled some previously disclosed litigation on attractive terms. We have also executed an agreement with PG&E to collect the remaining $1.7 million of pre-petition receivables under a court-approved 'operational integrity supplier program.' These transactions resulted in a net gain of $0.7 million. Our relationship with PG&E remains strong and we have continued to provide them with essential inspection services.”

Fourth Quarter:

  • Revenue of $91.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared with $88.9 million for the three months ended December 2018, representing a 3% increase.
  • Gross margin of $13.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $12.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018, representing a 12% increase.
  • Net income of $4.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $2.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018, representing an 87% increase.
  • Net income attributable to common unitholders of $3.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $1.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018, representing a 100% increase.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (including noncontrolling interests) of $8.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $6.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018, representing a 31% increase.
  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to limited partners of $7.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $6.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018, representing a 21% increase.
  • Distributable Cash Flow of $4.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $3.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018, representing a 56% increase. Distributable Cash Flow was reduced from distributions on preferred equity. The preferred equity was issued in May 2018, and the first preferred distribution was paid in November 2018.
  • A net debt leverage ratio (calculated as debt, including finance leases, net of cash and cash equivalents divided by trailing-twelve-month EBITDA) of 1.9x, a credit facility covenant leverage ratio of 2.4x, and a credit facility interest coverage ratio of 8.7x at December 31, 2019.

Full Year:

  • Revenue of $401.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared to $315.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, representing a 28% increase.
  • Gross margin of $53.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared to $44.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, representing a 22% increase.
  • Net income of $17.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared with $12.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, representing a 44% increase. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2018 included gains on asset disposals of $4.1 million.
  • Net income attributable to common unitholders of $11.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared with $9.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, representing a 32% increase. Net income attributable to common unitholders for the year ended December 31, 2018 included gains on asset disposals of $4.1 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (including noncontrolling interests) of $31.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared with $23.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, representing a 36% increase.
  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to limited partners of $29.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared with $21.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, representing a 35% increase.
  • Distributable Cash Flow of $18.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared with $12.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, representing a 41% increase. Distributable Cash Flow was reduced by distributions on preferred equity.

Highlights include:

  • An attractive mix of environmental service lines driving solid gross margin, EBITDA, and Distributable Cash Flow growth with details in the tables below.
  • Maintenance capital expenditures for the fourth quarter of 2019 were $0.1 million, reflecting the minimal maintenance capital expenditures necessary for the operations of our businesses.
  • Our expansion capital expenditures for 2019 totaled $1.5 million. The expansion capital expenditures included the purchase of equipment to support our nondestructive examination inspection business and costs associated with a new human capital management system that we implemented in early 2020 that should give us long-term competitive advantage.
  • We enjoy strong long-term customer relationships, many of which date back 17 years in our Pipeline Inspection segment and ten years in our Pipeline and Process Services (“PPS”) segment. In 2019:
    • 28% of the gross margin of our Pipeline Inspection segment was generated from customers that we have served for over 10 years, and another 40% was generated from customers we have served for over five years.
    • The majority of the gross margin of our PPS segment and Environmental Services segment was generated from customers that we have served for over 5 years.
  • We have substantial organic growth opportunities for our various service lines, considering that we serve less than 10% of the addressable market.

Looking forward:

  • We continue to pursue new customers and new projects as they are announced and remain focused on renewing existing contracts and selling to our customers additional service lines.
  • Earlier in 2019, our Pipeline Inspection segment reached the highest inspector headcount in its seventeen-year history.
  • We continue our focus on maintenance, integrity, and nondestructive examination services. These business lines yield higher gross margins than our standard inspection work and are not dependent on new construction projects.
  • During the year ended December 31, 2019, 93% of total saltwater disposal volumes came from produced water, and piped water represented 41% of total water volumes. We have significant operating leverage with our unused capacity, cost structure, and minimal maintenance capital expenditure requirements should drilling activity and water volumes increase.
  • The interest rate on our borrowings ranged between 4.70% and 6.02% for the year ended December 31, 2019. The interest rate on our revolving credit facility borrowings was 4.80% at December 31, 2019.
  • To simplify the financial presentation to investors regarding the complex administrative fee arrangement, we and CEH agreed to terminate the management fee provisions of the omnibus agreement effective December 31, 2019. Beginning January 1, 2020, the executive management services and other general and administrative expenses that CEH previously incurred and charged to us via the annual administrative fee are charged directly to us as they are incurred. Under our current cost structure, we expect these direct expenses to be lower than the annual administrative fee that we previously paid, although we expect to experience more variability in our quarterly general and administrative expense now that we are incurring the expenses directly than when we paid a consistent administrative fee each quarter. CEH will still retain the ability to provide expense support.
  • The coronavirus represents a new risk that is impacting global demand for energy, commodity prices, and may impact our customers and lenders.
  • We continue to incur substantial legal fees defending various Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) employee overtime litigation with plaintiff lawyers pursuing the industry.

CELP will file its annual report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2019 with the Securities and Exchange Commission later in March. CELP will also post a copy of the Form 10-K on its website at www.cypressenvironmental.biz

Non-GAAP Measures:

CELP defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income, plus interest expense, depreciation, amortization and accretion expenses, income tax expenses, impairments, non-cash allocated expenses, and equity-based compensation, less certain other unusual or non-recurring items. CELP defines Adjusted EBITDA attributable to limited partners as net income attributable to limited partners, plus interest expense attributable to limited partners, depreciation, amortization and accretion attributable to limited partners, impairments attributable to limited partners, income tax expense attributable to limited partners, and equity-based compensation attributable to limited partners, less certain other unusual or non-recurring items attributable to limited partners. CELP defines Distributable Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA attributable to limited partners less cash interest paid, cash income taxes paid, maintenance capital expenditures, and cash distributions on preferred equity. These are supplemental, non-GAAP financial measures used by management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors and commercial banks, to assess our operating performance without regard to financing methods, historical cost basis or capital structure; the ability of our assets to generate sufficient cash flow to make distributions to our unitholders; our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects; and the returns on investment of various investment opportunities. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA attributable to limited partners, and Distributable Cash Flow are net income and cash flow from operating activities. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered as alternatives to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Each of these non-GAAP financial measures exclude some, but not all, items that affect the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA attributable to limited partners, and Distributable Cash Flow should not be considered alternatives to net income, income before income taxes, net income attributable to limited partners, cash flows from operating activities, or any other measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP as those items are used to measure operating performance, liquidity, or the ability to service debt obligations. CELP believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA attributable to limited partners, and Distributable Cash Flow provide useful information to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations. CELP uses Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA attributable to limited partners, and Distributable Cash Flow as supplemental financial measures to both manage its business and assess the cash flows generated by its assets (prior to the establishment of any retained cash reserves by the general partner) to fund the cash distributions to unitholders. Because Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA attributable to limited partners, and Distributable Cash Flow may be defined differently by other companies, our definitions of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA attributable to limited partners and Distributable Cash Flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility. Reconciliations of (i) Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow, (ii)Net Income attributable to limited partners to Adjusted EBITDA attributable to limited partners and Distributable Cash Flow and (iii) Net Cash Flows Provided by Operating Activities to Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are provided below.
