05/05/2021 | 01:15am EDT

ABERDEEN, United Kingdom, May 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altera Infrastructure GP LLC (Altera GP), the general partner of Altera Infrastructure L.P. (Altera or the Partnership), today reported the Partnership’s results for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.

  • Revenues of $272.8 million and net income of $5.9 million, or $0.00 per common unit, in the first quarter of 2021
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $120.3 million in the first quarter of 2021

The following table presents the Partnership's Consolidated Financial Summary:

(1)Please refer to "Non-IFRS Measures" for the definition of this term and reconciliation of this non-IFRS measure as used in this release to the most directly comparable measure under IFRS.

The Partnership generated net income of $6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to a net loss of $259 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The results for the recent quarter benefited mainly from the absence of a $172 million impairment loss and a decrease of $105 million in loss on derivatives, compared to the same quarter in the prior year. This was partially offset by lower revenues from the Petrojarl FPSO, and the Randgrid FSO and an absence of Voyageur FPSO revenues as a result of the unit being in lay-up.

Adjusted EBITDA was $120 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $164 million in the same quarter of the prior year. The decrease of $44 million mainly reflects lower economic uptime on the Petrojarl l FPSO, an absence of Voyageur FPSO revenues, lower day rates on the Rangrid FSO and an absence of revenues from two vessels in the FSO segment that were sold.

Operating Results
The commentary below compares certain results of the Partnership's operating segments on the basis of the non-IFRS measure of Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to the same period of the prior year.

The following table presents the Partnership's Adjusted EBITDA by segment:

 Three Months Ended

Corporate/Eliminations(3,052) 988  (195)
Partnership Adjusted EBITDA120,270  142,193  163,548 


The Partnership's Shuttle Tanker segment generated Adjusted EBITDA of $67 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $65 million for the three months ended March 31 2020.

The Partnership's FPSO segment generated Adjusted EBITDA of $53 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $80 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The decrease of $27 million is mainly due to lower economic uptime on the Petrojarl I FPSO and the impact of the Voyageur FPSO ceasing operations under its contract in mid-2020.

The Partnership's FSO segment generated Adjusted EBITDA of $7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $24 million in the same period in 2020. The decrease of $17 million is mainly due to a reduction in the Randgrid FSO contract rate and the absence of contribution from the Dampier Spirit FSO and Apollo Spirit FSO, as their contracts ended in the third quarter of 2020.

The Partnership's UMS segment generated Adjusted EBITDA loss of $2 million in the most recent quarter, in line with same period in 2020.

The Partnership's Towage segment generated Adjusted EBITDA loss of $2 million in the most recent quarter, which includes revenues from freeing up a container vessel in the Suez canal. Adjusted EBITDA is in line with same period in 2020.

Liquidity Update
As at March 31, 2021 the Partnership had total liquidity of $222 million, including $25 million of undrawn lines under a revolving credit facility, representing a decrease of $14 million from the prior quarter.

Strategic updates

Delivery of Shuttle Tanker Newbuildings
In January 2021, the Partnership took delivery of the fifth LNG-fueled DP2 shuttle tanker newbuilding, the Altera Wave. The vessel has commenced operations and is trading as part of the Partnership's CoA fleet in the North Sea. The sixth LNG fueled vessel, the Altera Wind, was delivered in March 2021 and has arrived in Norway for testing, while the seventh vessel is expected to be delivered early in 2022 and to operate off the East Coast of Canada.

Financings
During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Partnership entered into two additional unsecured revolving credit facilities with Brookfield Business Partners LP and its affiliates, which provide for total borrowings of up to $100 million and mature in February 2022.

Non-IFRS Measures

To supplement the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements, the Partnership uses Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-IFRS financial measure, as a measure of the Partnership's performance. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as net income (loss) before interest expense, interest income, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization and is adjusted to exclude certain items whose timing or amount cannot be reasonably estimated in advance or that are not considered representative of core operating performance. Such adjustments include impairment expenses, gain (loss) on dispositions, net, unrealized gain (loss) on derivative instruments, foreign currency exchange gain (loss) and certain other income or expenses. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes: realized gain or loss on interest rate swaps, as the Partnership in assessing its performance, views these gains or losses as an element of interest expense; realized gain or loss on derivative instruments resulting from amendments or terminations of the underlying instruments; realized gain or loss on foreign currency forward contracts; and equity-accounted income (loss). Adjusted EBITDA also includes the Partnership's proportionate share of Adjusted EBITDA from its equity-accounted investments and excludes the non-controlling interests' proportionate share of Adjusted EBITDA. The Partnership does not have control over the operations of, nor does it have any legal claim to the revenues and expenses of its equity-accounted investments. Consequently, the cash flow generated by the Partnership's equity-accounted investments may not be available for use by the Partnership in the period that such cash flows are generated.

Adjusted EBITDA is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered as the sole measure of the Partnership's performance or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. In addition, this measure does not have a standardized meaning and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. These non-IFRS measures are used by the Partnership's management, and the Partnership believes that these supplementary metrics assist investors and other users of its financial reports in comparing its financial and operating performance across reporting periods and with other companies.
