What is an mlp
What is an MLP?

  • Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs)

    • The current form of master limited partnerships (MLP) was created by US Congress in 1986.

    • A master limited partnership (MLP) is generally a limited partnership interest that is traded on a public exchange, and whose operations are managed by a general partner, the latter typically only has a 2% economic stake.

    • An interest in an MLP is referred to as a “unit” rather than a “share”.

    • MLPs typically pay out the bulk of their operating cash flow on a quarterly basis in the form of distributions (not dividends) to their limited and general partners.

    • As such, MLPs are relatively high-yielding securities whose primary objective is to grow cash distributions over time.

    • A MLP must derive most (~90%) of its cash flows from real estate, natural resources and commodities.


Comparison to income trusts reits and utilities
Comparison to Income Trusts, REITs and Utilities

  • MLPs vs. Income Trusts

    • Both are not taxed at the entity level and have historically had a high level of retail ownership.

    • The definition of an MLP in the U.S. tax code is very narrow whereas, the types of companies that were eligible for the Income Trust structure was quite broad, which encouraged abuse.

  • MLPs vs. REITS

    • Both yield-oriented equities that experienced rapid and substantial growth as retail investments.

    • The revenue of REITs is generally tied to the health of the overall economy and therein heavily exposed to downturns in the business cycle whereas the revenue of MLPs is generally tied to energy demand and federally mandated tariff increases, which reduces their exposure to downturns in the business cycle.

  • MLPs vs. Utilities

    • Both sectors benefit from inelastic demand and are closely regulated by the government.

    • Utilities are regulated at the local level, which tends to be more political with greater self-interest whereas interstate pipeline MLPs are regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which has historically shown a willingness to reassess the cost structure to support MLPs.


Fundamental risks to mlps
Fundamental Risks to MLPs

  • Regulatory Risk

    • The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (regulates energy infrastructure assets) increasing the cost of capital, for example by lowering pipeline tariffs or create regulations which adversely affect a pipeline owned by an MLP.

  • Demand Destruction

    • Stagnation in energy demand (higher commodity prices, emission concern, alternative energy source, economic downturn, weather)

      • reduce volumes = lower cash generated

  • Supply side disruptions

    • Reduction in Middle Eastern supply, foreign embargos, terrorism

    • Weather, e.g. hurricanes.

    • Capacity issues – in instances where refinery source is less diversified.

  • Financial Risk

    • Interest rate – yield oriented nature of MLPs effectively creates duration risk.

    • Short term volatility as retail investors use only sentiment of equity and commodity markets without considering the impact on future cash flows to make decisions to hold/sell MLPs.

  • Environmental Accidents

    • Impact future cash flows as MLPs have low deductibles to cover any product spills.

  • Terrorism

    • Most MLPs do not carry any form of terrorism insurance (only carry business interruption insurance, typically effective after 30 days).


Energy mlps1
Energy MLPs

  • Based in the U.S., these limited partnerships are engaged in the transportation, storage, processing, exploration, and production of minerals and natural resources.

  • By confining their operations to these specific activities, they are able to trade on public securities exchanges without entity-level taxation.

  • Business models geared towards generating predictable cash flows based on:

    • long-lived, high-value physical assets.

    • Producer Price Index (PPI) revenue indexing, which provide predictable growth and a built-in inflation hedge.

    • substantial barriers to entry, which generate attractive organized investment opportunities.

    • strong operating leverage through hard assets that magnify inelastic demand.

  • 103 energy MLPs currently;

    • 3/4 of them trade on the NYSE.

    • The majority of the residual MLPs trades on the NASDAQ.

    • All listed MLPs are regulated by the Securities Exchange Commission and must comply with Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

Toll road business models
Toll-Road Business Models

  • Typically toll-road business models

    • Receive a specified tariff for hauling a product over a certain distance.

    • Do not take title to the commodity.

    • Do not have balance sheet exposure.

    • Are largely agnostic to the level of commodity prices

      • underlying commodity prices do not enter the tariff calculation.

    • No significant credit risk as commodity prices increase.

Investing in the infrastructure mlp sector
Investing in the Infrastructure MLP Sector

  • Thematically, investment in this sector is an investment in the build out of the U.S. energy infrastructure over the next decade.

  • New infrastructure investment to keep pace with increasing population growth and shifting of North America’s traditional supply sources.

  • The United States requires over U.S.$200 billion of energy infrastructure investments over the next decade to match new supplies with growing demand, providing prolific investment opportunities.

  • Based on market capitalization, this sector represents about ~78% of the total MLP sector.
