GROWTH UPDATE
Permian Logistics Growth
Increased Sand Hills NGL pipeline capacity to 485 MBbls/d in the fourth quarter of 2018.
The approximately 2.0 Bcf/d Gulf Coast Express ("GCX") gas takeaway pipeline is fully subscribed and construction is underway. GCX is expected to be placed in service in the fourth quarter of 2019.
DJ Basin Logistics and G&P Growth
Adding NGL takeaway to the DJ Basin with Southern Hills pipeline extension via the White Cliffs pipeline. The initial capacity out of the DJ Basin is expected to be 90 MBbls/d, expandable to 120 MBbls/d, with an anticipated fourth quarter 2019 in-service date.
Expanding Front Range by 100 MBbls/d and Texas Express by 90 MBbls/d, adding NGL takeaway from the DJ Basin. Both expansions are expected to go into service in the third quarter of 2019.
DCP holds an option to acquire a 33% interest in the Cheyenne Connector, exercisable after FERC approval for the project, with an anticipated fourth quarter 2019 in-service date.
Construction of the 300 MMcf/d O'Connor 2 facility, comprised of processing capacity of 200 MMcf/d and up to 100 MMcf/d of bypass, is progressing well. The O'Connor 2 plant is expected to be in-service in the second quarter of 2019, and associated bypass is expected to be in-service in the third quarter of 2019.
The Bighorn program is under development with focus on adding additional gas processing and bypass infrastructure to the DJ Basin.
Fractionation Growth
DCP holds an option to acquire a 30% ownership interest in two 150 MBbls/d fractionators to be constructed within Phillips 66's Sweeny Hub, exercisable at the in-service date, which is expected to be in late 2020.

COMMON UNIT DISTRIBUTIONS
On January 23, 2019, DCP announced a quarterly common unit distribution of $0.78 per limited partner unit. DCP generated distributable cash flow of $138 million and $684 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, respectively. Distributions declared were $154 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 and $618 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, resulting in a distribution coverage ratio of 0.90 and 1.11 times for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, respectively.

FOURTH QUARTER 2018 OPERATING RESULTS BY BUSINESS SEGMENT
Logistics and Marketing
Logistics and Marketing Segment net income attributable to partners for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 was $152 million and $88 million, respectively.

3


Adjusted segment EBITDA increased to $148 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018, from $114 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017, reflecting higher equity earnings and distributions driven by increasing volumes on Sand Hills and Southern Hills, and higher gas marketing margins associated with Guadalupe, partially offset by losses from realized cash settlements related to DCP's commodity derivative program and impacts of the Sand Hills third party line strike.
Gathering and Processing
Gathering and Processing Segment net income attributable to partners for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 was $89 million and $132 million, respectively.
Adjusted segment EBITDA decreased to $170 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018, from $252 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017, reflecting increased operating costs associated with higher reliability and maintenance spending, lower distributions from Discovery, and lower Permian results including impacts of the Sand Hills third party line strike. These decreases were partially offset by DJ Basin growth and higher margins in the Midcontinent.
CAPITALIZATION, LIQUIDITY AND FINANCING
Debt and Credit Facilities
DCP has two credit facilities with up to $1.6 billion of total capacity. Proceeds from these facilities can be used for working capital requirements and other general partnership purposes including growth and acquisitions.
DCP has a $1.4 billion senior unsecured revolving credit agreement that matures on December 6, 2022, or the Credit Agreement. As of December 31, 2018, total available capacity under the Credit Agreement was $1,036 million net of $351 million of outstanding borrowings and $13 million of letters of credit.
DCP has an accounts receivable securitization facility that provides up to $200 million of borrowing capacity at LIBOR market index rates plus a margin through August 2019. As of December 31, 2018, DCP had $200 million of outstanding borrowings under the accounts receivable securitization facility included in current debt.
On January 18, 2019, DCP issued $325 million of additional aggregate principal amount to our existing $500 million 5.375% Senior Notes due July 2025. The proceeds will be used for general partnership purposes including the funding of capital expenditures and repayment of outstanding indebtedness under the Credit Agreement.
As of December 31, 2018, DCP had $5,326 million of total consolidated principal debt outstanding, including $525 million of current maturities. The total debt outstanding includes $550 million of junior subordinated notes which are excluded from debt pursuant to DCP's Credit Agreement leverage ratio calculation. For the year ended December 31, 2018, DCP's leverage ratio was approximately 3.8 times. The effective interest rate on DCP's overall debt position, as of December 31, 2018, was 5.2%.
Issuance of Preferred Equity
In October, 2018, DCP issued 4,400,000 of 7.950% Series C Preferred Units, at a price of $25 per unit. DCP used the net proceeds of $106 million from this issuance for general partnership purposes, including funding capital expenditures and the repayment of outstanding indebtedness under the Credit Agreement.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION
This press release and the accompanying financial schedules include the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow and adjusted segment EBITDA, forecasted adjusted EBITDA and forecasted distributable cash flow. The accompanying schedules provide reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. DCP's non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to its financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP, including operating revenues, net income or loss attributable to partners, net cash provided by or used in operating activities or any other measure of liquidity or financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP as a measure of operating performance, liquidity or ability to service debt obligations and make cash distributions to unitholders. The non-GAAP financial measures presented by DCP may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because they may not calculate their measures in the same manner.
DCP defines adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss attributable to partners adjusted for (i) distributions from unconsolidated affiliates, net of earnings, (ii) depreciation and amortization expense, (iii) net interest expense, (iv) noncontrolling interest in depreciation and income tax expense, (v) unrealized gains and losses from commodity derivatives, (vi) income tax expense or benefit, (vii) impairment expense and (viii) certain other non-cash items. Adjusted EBITDA further excludes items of income or loss that we characterize as unrepresentative of our ongoing operations.
The commodity derivative non-cash losses and gains result from the marking to market of certain financial derivatives used by us for risk management purposes that we do not account for under the hedge method of accounting. These non-cash losses or gains may or may not be realized in future periods when the derivative contracts are settled, due to fluctuating commodity prices.
Adjusted EBITDA is used as a supplemental liquidity and performance measure and adjusted segment EBITDA is used as a supplemental performance measure by DCP's management and by external users of its financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others to assess:
financial performance of DCP's assets without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis;

5


DCP's operating performance and return on capital as compared to those of other companies in the midstream energy industry, without regard to financing methods or capital structure;
viability and performance of acquisitions and capital expenditure projects and the overall rates of return on investment opportunities;
performance of DCP's business excluding non-cash commodity derivative gains or losses; and
in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, the ability of DCP's assets to generate cash sufficient to pay interest costs, support its indebtedness, make cash distributions to its unitholders and general partner, and pay maintenance capital expenditures.
DCP defines adjusted segment EBITDA for each segment as segment net income or loss attributable to partners adjusted for (i) distributions from unconsolidated affiliates, net of earnings, (ii) depreciation and amortization expense, (iii) net interest expense, (iv) noncontrolling interest in depreciation and income tax expense, (v) unrealized gains and losses from commodity derivatives, (vi) income tax expense or benefit, (vii) impairment expense and (viii) certain other non-cash items. Adjusted segment EBITDA further excludes items of income or loss that we characterize as unrepresentative of our ongoing operations for that segment.
DCP defines distributable cash flow as adjusted EBITDA less maintenance capital expenditures, net of reimbursable projects, interest expense, cumulative cash distributions earned by the Series A, Series B and Series C Preferred Units (collectively the "Preferred Limited Partnership Units") and certain other items.
Maintenance capital expenditures are cash expenditures made to maintain DCP's cash flows, operating capacity or earnings capacity. These expenditures add on to or improve capital assets owned, including certain system integrity, compliance and safety improvements. Maintenance capital expenditures also include certain well connects, and may include the acquisition or construction of new capital assets. Income attributable to preferred units represent cash distributions earned by the Preferred Limited Partnership Units. Cash distributions to be paid to the holders of the Preferred Limited Partnership Units, assuming a distribution is declared by DCP's board of directors, are not available to common unit holders. Non-cash mark-to-market of derivative instruments is considered to be non-cash for the purpose of computing distributable cash flow because settlement will not occur until future periods, and will be impacted by future changes in commodity prices and interest rates. DCP compares the distributable cash flow it generates to the cash distributions it expects to pay to its partners. Using this metric, DCP computes its distribution coverage ratio. Distributable cash flow is used as a supplemental liquidity and performance measure by DCP's management and by external users of its financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others, to assess DCP's ability to make cash distributions to its unitholders and its general partner.
