Recent Highlights

Strategic

  • As of October 31, 2017, more than 200 cumulative LNG cargoes had been produced, loaded, and exported from the SPL Project (defined below), with deliveries completed to 25 countries worldwide. Sabine Pass Liquefaction, LLC has successfully fulfilled its obligations to the foundation customers of Trains 1-3 and provided LNG that our marketing function has sold to multiple customers with long-term contracting potential.
  • We recently opened offices in Tokyo, Japan and Beijing, China and established an in-country presence in Thailand to build expertise and local relationships.
  • We recently entered into term agreements for a portion of the LNG volumes expected to be available to our marketing function for the period 2018-2020.
  • We are focused on advancing long-term LNG Sale and Purchase Agreement ("SPA") discussions to facilitate Final Investment Decision of Train 3 at the CCL Project (defined below), and have commenced advanced engineering and preliminary procurement work on Train 3 with our EPC partner Bechtel.
  • We completed our FEED study on a midscale liquefaction solution for the Corpus Christi Expansion Project (defined below) and began the process of amending our filing with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to incorporate midscale liquefaction technology.

Operational

  • Substantial completion of Train 4 of the SPL Project was achieved in October 2017, more than five months ahead of the guaranteed completion date.
  • Operations and maintenance personnel staffing and training plans for the CCL Project are on schedule.
  • LNG production operations at the SPL Project continued uninterrupted during Hurricane Harvey.

Financial

  • In August 2017, the Date of First Commercial Delivery ("DFCD") relating to Train 2 of the SPL Project was reached under the respective 20-year SPAs with Gas Natural Fenosa LNG GOM, Limited and BG Gulf Coast LNG, LLC.
  • In September 2017, Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P. ("Cheniere Partners") issued an aggregate principal amount of $1.5 billion of 5.250% Senior Notes due 2025 ("the 2025 CQP Senior Notes"). Net proceeds of the offering, after deducting commissions, fees and expenses, were used to prepay a portion of the outstanding indebtedness under Cheniere Partners' credit facilities.
  • In September 2017, Moody's Investors Service, S&P Global Ratings and Fitch Ratings assigned ratings of Ba2 / BB / BB, respectively to the 2025 CQP Senior Notes.

Cheniere Energy, Inc. ("Cheniere") (NYSE American: LNG) reported a net loss1 of $289 million, or $1.24 per share (basic and diluted), for the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared to a net loss of $101 million, or $0.44 per share (basic and diluted), for the comparable 2016 period.

Cheniere reported a net loss of $520 million, or $2.24 per share (basic and diluted), for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to a net loss of $720 million, or $3.15 per share (basic and diluted), for the comparable 2016 period.

During the three months ended September 30, 2017, the increase in net loss was primarily due to the increased allocation of net income to non-controlling interest due primarily to the non-cash impact of amortization of the beneficial conversion feature on Cheniere Partners' Class B units, increased interest expense, net of amounts capitalized, and increased derivative loss, net associated with interest rate derivative activity, which were partially offset by increased income from operations. During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the decrease in net loss was primarily due to increased income from operations and decreased derivative loss, net associated with interest rate derivative activity, which were partially offset by increased allocation of net income to non-controlling interest and increased interest expense, net of amounts capitalized. The amortization of the beneficial conversion feature on Cheniere Partners' Class B units ceased upon the conversion of these units into common units on August 2, 2017, and there will be no further impact to net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interest due to the amortization of the beneficial conversion feature.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, 44 and 135 LNG cargoes, respectively, were exported from the SPL Project, of which 5 and 12, respectively, were commissioning cargoes.

Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA2 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $442 million and $1.3 billion, respectively, compared to $67 million and $19 million for the comparable 2016 periods. The increases in Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA during the respective periods were primarily due to increased income from operations.

"I'm pleased to report our strong third quarter results today, which are a product of continued execution and operational excellence across the company. In addition, we are again increasing our full year 2017 guidance and are introducing our guidance for full year 2018" said Jack Fusco, Cheniere's President and CEO. "The third quarter was highlighted by the commencement of our long-term contract with Gas Natural Fenosa and the successful commissioning of Train 4 at Sabine Pass. Train 4 recently achieved Substantial Completion, and we've now brought the first four Trains online in less than 17 months, all of them ahead of schedule and within budget.

"We are revising our 2017 guidance upward as operating results continue to exceed earlier expectations, and we have greater certainty on results as we approach the end of the year. Our 2018 guidance range is driven primarily by LNG production scenarios at Sabine Pass and expected market pricing for LNG during 2018."

Summary of Financial Performance

Third Quarter 2017 Results

Our financial results are reported on a consolidated basis. Our ownership interest in Cheniere Partners (NYSE American: CQP) as of September 30, 2017 consisted of 100% ownership of the general partner of Cheniere Partners and 82.7% ownership interest in Cheniere Energy Partners LP Holdings, LLC (NYSE American: CQH) which owned a 48.6% limited partner interest in Cheniere Partners on September 30, 2017.

Variances in results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, were primarily driven by the timing of completion of Trains at the SPL Project and the length of each Train's operations within the periods being compared. Total revenues increased $938 million and $3.1 billion during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 as compared to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, primarily due to the increased volume of LNG sold that was recognized as revenues following the achievement of substantial completion of each Train, and to a lesser extent the increased volume of LNG sold that was sourced from third parties.

Total operating costs and expenses increased $656 million and $2.0 billion during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, respectively, compared to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016. The increase in total operating costs and expenses was primarily due to an increase in cost of sales and, to a lesser extent, from increases in operating and maintenance expense and depreciation and amortization expense.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expense increased $5 million during the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2016, but decreased $18 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2016. During the three months ended September 30, 2016, SG&A expense benefited from a cost reversal that was not repeated in the comparable 2017 period. The $18 million decrease in SG&A expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2016 is primarily due to certain organizational changes implemented during 2016.

Included in SG&A expense were share-based compensation expenses of $13 million and $38 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, respectively, compared to $7 million and $31 million for the comparable 2016 periods.

Although we realized net income before non-controlling interest during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, we realized a net loss attributable to common stockholders during the periods as a result of the amortization of the beneficial conversion feature on Cheniere Partners' Class B units impacting net income attributed to non-controlling interest. The impact to net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interest due to the non-cash amortization of the beneficial conversion feature was $370 million and $748 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, respectively, compared to $7 million and $10 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively. The amortization of the beneficial conversion feature on Cheniere Partners' Class B units ceased upon the conversion of these units into common units on August 2, 2017, and there will be no further impact to net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interest due to the amortization of the beneficial conversion feature. The share of Cheniere Partners' net income (loss) that is attributed to non-controlling interest holders has increased from August 2, 2017 as a result of the increased ownership percentage by non-controlling interest holders.

Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2017, we had cash and cash equivalents of $919 million available to Cheniere. In addition, we had current and non-current restricted cash of $1.7 billion (which included current and non-current restricted cash available to us and our subsidiaries) designated for the following purposes: $627 million for the SPL Project, $117 million for the CCL Project (defined below), $816 million for restricted purposes under the terms of Cheniere Partners' credit facilities and $96 million for other restricted purposes.

Liquefaction Projects

SPL Project

Through Cheniere Partners, we are developing up to six Trains at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal adjacent to the existing regasification facilities (the "SPL Project"). Each Train is expected to have a nominal production capacity, which is prior to adjusting for planned maintenance, production reliability, and potential overdesign, of approximately 4.5 mtpa of LNG. Trains 1 through 4 are operational, Train 5 is under construction, and Train 6 is being commercialized and has all necessary regulatory approvals in place.

CCL Project

We are developing up to three Trains near Corpus Christi, Texas (the "CCL Project"). Each Train is expected to have a nominal production capacity, which is prior to adjusting for planned maintenance, production reliability, and potential overdesign, of approximately 4.5 mtpa of LNG. Trains 1 and 2 are under construction, and Train 3 is being commercialized and has all necessary regulatory approvals in place.

Corpus Christi Expansion Project

We are developing up to seven midscale liquefaction trains adjacent to the CCL Project, each with an expected nominal production capacity, which is prior to adjusting for planned maintenance, production reliability, and potential overdesign, of approximately 1.4 mtpa of LNG. The total expected nominal production capacity of the seven midscale Trains is approximately 9.5 mtpa. We have initiated the regulatory approval process with respect to the Corpus Christi Expansion Project.

Investor Conference Call and Webcast

We will host a conference call to discuss our financial and operating results for the third quarter on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, at 11 a.m. Eastern time / 10 a.m. Central time. A listen-only webcast of the call and an accompanying slide presentation may be accessed through our website at www.cheniere.com.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

Regulation G Reconciliations

In addition to disclosing financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the accompanying news release contains non-GAAP financial measures. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distributable Cash Flow per Share are non-GAAP financial measures that we use to facilitate comparisons of operating performance across periods. These non-GAAP measures should be viewed as a supplement to and not a substitute for our U.S. GAAP measures of performance and the financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP and reconciliations from these results should be carefully evaluated.

Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA represents net loss attributable to Cheniere before net income (loss) attributable to the non-controlling interest, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for certain non-cash items, other non-operating income or expense items, and other items not otherwise predictive or indicative of ongoing operating performance, as detailed in the following reconciliation. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to represent cash flows from operations or net income (loss) as defined by U.S. GAAP and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

We believe Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA provides relevant and useful information to management, investors and other users of our financial information in evaluating the effectiveness of our operating performance in a manner that is consistent with management's evaluation of business performance. We believe Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA is widely used by investors to measure a company's operating performance without regard to items such as interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization which vary substantially from company to company depending on capital structure, the method by which assets were acquired and depreciation policies. Further, the exclusion of certain non-cash items, other non-operating income or expense items, and items not otherwise predictive or indicative of ongoing operating performance enables comparability to prior period performance and trend analysis.

Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by taking net loss attributable to common stockholders before net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interest, interest expense, net of capitalized interest, changes in the fair value and settlement of our interest rate derivatives, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and adjusting for the effects of certain non-cash items, other non-operating income or expense items, and other items not otherwise predictive or indicative of ongoing operating performance, including the effects of modification or extinguishment of debt, impairment expense and loss on disposal of assets, changes in the fair value of our commodity and foreign currency exchange ("FX") derivatives and non-cash compensation expense. We believe the exclusion of these items enables investors and other users of our financial information to assess our sequential and year-over-year performance and operating trends on a more comparable basis and is consistent with management's own evaluation of performance.

Distributable Cash Flow is defined as cash received, or expected to be received, from Cheniere's ownership and interests in CQP, CQH and Cheniere Corpus Christi Holdings, LLC, cash received (used) by Cheniere's integrated marketing function (other than cash for capital expenditures) less interest, taxes and maintenance capital expenditures associated with Cheniere and not the underlying entities. Management uses this measure and believes it provides users of our financial statements a useful measure reflective of our business's ability to generate cash earnings to supplement the comparable GAAP measure.

Distributable Cash Flow per Share is calculated by dividing Distributable Cash Flow by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding.

We believe Distributable Cash Flow is a useful performance measure for management, investors and other users of our financial information to evaluate our performance and to measure and estimate the ability of our assets to generate cash earnings after servicing our debt, paying cash taxes and expending sustaining capital, that could be used for discretionary purposes such as common stock dividends, stock repurchases, retirement of debt, or expansion capital expenditures. Management uses this measure and believes it provides users of our financial statements a useful measure reflective of our business's ability to generate cash earnings to supplement the comparable GAAP measure. Distributable Cash Flow is not intended to represent cash flows from operations or net income (loss) as defined by U.S. GAAP and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Non-GAAP measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or in lieu of an analysis of our results as reported under GAAP, and should be evaluated only on a supplementary basis.
