During 2016 our assets have performed overall in line with expectations, with assets including Mojave, ACT, the solar plants in Spain and all the transmission lines beating targets and Solana and wind farms below expectations.

Mojave has concluded an excellent second year of operation, exceeding our targets. ACT, our cogeneration plant in Mexico, has maintained its outstanding operational performance, after implementing its scheduled periodic major maintenance in February. In Spain, radiation was slightly below usual levels in the first half of the year, but this was offset during the second half and our portfolio of solar assets in the region continued to show excellent operational performance. Solana did not achieve expectations, as we continued to perform the scheduled improvements required at the plant. After an excellent year, Kaxu experienced technical problems in certain equipment during the last part of the fourth quarter. Our wind assets in Uruguay have shown stable performance, while we believe there is room for improvement given that wind levels continue to be lower than expected. Finally water assets have reached once again excellent availability levels.

Liquidity and Debt

As of December 31, 2016, consolidated cash and cash equivalents amounted to $594.8 million, of which $122.2 million was cash available at the Atlantica Yield corporate level. In addition, cash classified as short-term financial investments at the project level amounted to $79.3 million. As a result, total liquidity including short-term financial investments amounted to $674.1 million as of December 31, 2016.

As of December 31, 2016, net project debt amounted to $4,857.9 million, representing a reduction of $143.5 million versus last year. Net corporate debt amounted to $546.0 million, a $73.0 million reduction compared with last year. The net corporate debt / CAFD pre-corporate debt service ratio[9] is 2.7x, below our stated target of 3x.

Net project debt is calculated as long-term project debt plus short-term project debt minus cash and cash equivalents at the project level. Net corporate debt is calculated as long-term corporate debt plus short-term corporate debt minus cash and cash equivalents at Atlantica Yield corporate level.

Corporate Refinancing

In February 2017, we successfully refinanced part of our corporate debt by signing a note facility (the "Note Issuance Facility ") with a group of funds managed by a world-class infrastructure fund for a total amount of €275 million (approximately $290 million), with three series of bullet notes:

  • € 92.0 million maturing in 2022
  • € 91.5 million maturing in 2023
  • € 91.5 million maturing in 2024

We intend to hedge the interest rates at an estimated fixed rate of 5.60 to 5.70%. The proceeds of the Note Issuance Facility will be used to repay and cancel Tranche B of our Credit Facility. 

"This transaction provides us with a stable corporate financial structure with a much longer average life. This transaction is a further reaffirmation of the quality of Atlantica's existing portfolio. Our exposure to Euro-denominated cash flows allows us to issue corporate debt either in US dollars or Euros, benefitting from the market with better conditions. Issuing in Euros provides a natural hedge to our assets in Euros. In 2017 and upcoming years, we will continue to maintain a prudent financial policy and we reaffirm our commitment to always maintain corporate leverage below 3 times CAFD pre corporate debt service", said Francisco Martinez-Davis, CFO of Atlantica Yield.

Guidance

We are initiating guidance for 2017 for the existing portfolio with an expected Further Adjusted EBITDA for 2017 in the range of $760 million to $810 million and CAFD for the year 2017 in the range of $170 million to $190 million, excluding additional proceeds from the potential monetization of the final proceeds to be received as compensation of the preferred equity in ACBH. In addition, our run-rate CAFD guidance is in the range of $200 to $215 million. Regarding our dividend, we target an 80% pay-out ratio[10].

Strategic Update

Santiago Seage, CEO of Atlantica Yield, said "2016 has been a very important year for Atlantica Yield. We have delivered our guidance in terms of EBITDA and CAFD, we have managed to successfully achieve autonomy, mitigate the risks derived from our sponsor situation and we have reinforced our corporate financial structure. With this, we believe we have a much stronger company than a year ago and we have laid the foundation to restart accretive growth".

For the year 2017, management will focus on achieving financial targets while positioning the company to reach run-rate CAFD levels and allocating excess cash to value-creating opportunities. In addition, we expect to restart growth through accretive acquisitions and partnerships. In this context, we have signed a letter of intent for the acquisition of a 12.5% interest in a 114-mile transmission line located in Arizona and California.

Dividend

On February 24, 2017, our Board of Directors approved a dividend of $0.25 per share, an increase of 53% with respect to the previous quarter, reflecting the key waivers and forbearances secured over the last few months. This dividend is expected to be paid on or about March 15, 2017 to shareholders of record as of February 28, 2017.

The Board of Directors continues to maintain a prudent approach until we secure some of the last waivers. Following the same logic as in previous quarters, the dividend was based on the proportion of assets which do not require any waivers or forbearances. The percentage increased from 45% to approximately 70% after securing important waivers and forbearances in the period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We present non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that they and other similar measures are widely used by certain investors, securities analysts and other interested parties as supplemental measures of performance and liquidity. The non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies and have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our operating results as reported under IFRS as issued by the IASB. Non-GAAP financial measures and ratios are not measurements of our performance or liquidity under IFRS as issued by the IASB and should not be considered as alternatives to operating profit or profit for the year or any other performance measures derived in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB or any other generally accepted accounting principles or as alternatives to cash flow from operating, investing or financing activities.

We define Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates as profit/(loss) for the period attributable to the Company, after adding back loss/(profit) attributable to non-controlling interest from continued operations, income tax, share of profit/(loss) of associates carried under the equity method, finance expense net, depreciation, amortization and impairment charges, and dividends received from the preferred equity investment in ACBH.

Our management believes Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates is useful to investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating our operating performance because it provides them with an additional tool to compare business performance across companies and across periods. This measure 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 can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired. Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates is also used by management as a measure of liquidity.

Our management uses Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates as a measure of operating performance to assist in comparing performance from period to period on a consistent basis and to readily view operating trends, as a measure for planning and forecasting overall expectations and for evaluating actual results against such expectations, and in communications with our Board of Directors, shareholders, creditors, analysts and investors concerning our financial performance.

We define Cash Available For Distribution as cash distributions received by the Company from its subsidiaries minus all cash expenses of the Company, including debt service and general and administrative expenses. Management believes cash available for distribution is a relevant supplemental measure of the Company's ability to earn and distribute cash returns to investors.

We believe cash available for distribution is useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance because securities analysts and other interested parties use such calculations as a measure of our ability to make quarterly distributions. In addition, cash available for distribution is used by our management team for determining future acquisitions and managing our growth.
