“We are very pleased with our fiscal year 2016 EBITDA performance and recent delevering events given the challenging energy environment. Our fourth quarter results were impacted by the continued decline in commodity prices compounded by a continuing unseasonably warm winter. We were able to offset those impacts by increasing volumes in our Refined Products business, optimizing our operations and taking advantage of a contango commodities market. This is a testament to our strategy of having an integrated and diversified portfolio of midstream businesses which serve as natural hedges against commodity price declines,” said Mike Krimbill, CEO of NGL. “Additionally, we have made tremendous progress over the past six months to improve our balance sheet, enhance our liquidity and continue to focus on the opportunities to grow our five business segments.”
