Missed revenue estimates. The company saw revenue figures of $3.33 billion, lagging behind our consensus estimate of $3.368 billion and falling over 10% year-over-year.
Reported net loss available to common stockholders of $227 million. Distributable cash flow came in at $1.081 billion, down from the year ago period. The decrease in distributable cash flow for the quarter was attributable to lower contributions from the CO2 segment primarily due to lower commodity prices.
Investors should note that Kinder Morgan’s Natural Gas Pipelines segment’s performance for Q3 was impacted by the sale of a 50% interest in SNG. Excluding this sale, the Natural Gas Pipeline segment’s performance was in-line with the same period during 2015.
In addition to its Q3 results, KMI also announced a cash dividend of $0.125 per share for the quarter payable on November 12, 2016.
“We are pleased with our operational performance for the quarter despite continued weak market conditions in our industry. Our performance, adjusted for the SNG transaction, remains consistent with our guidance provided since April,” said Richard D. Kinder, executive chairman.
