- Net income attributable to the partnership of $47.5 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $76.0 million
- Board of Directors declares cash distribution of $0.3690 per unit, representing 5 percent increase above the second-quarter 2018

RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Dominion Energy Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: DM), reported unaudited net income attributable to the partnership of $47.5 million for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2018.  Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) were $76.0 million for the third-quarter, and distributable cash flow was $50.1 million for the quarter. The distribution coverage ratio was 1.07 times at the end of the third-quarter.

Dominion Energy Midstream uses Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow as the primary performance measurements of its earnings and results for public communications with analysts and investors.  Dominion Energy Midstream also uses Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow internally for budgeting, reporting to the Board of Directors and other purposes. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow provide a more meaningful representation of the partnership's financial performance and liquidity. Schedules B and D of this press release include reconciliations to the most directly comparable Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) measures.
