Brookfield Infrastructure (NYSE: BIP; TSX: BIP.UN) today announced its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

“The successful acquisition of Inter Pipeline marked a significant milestone for Brookfield Infrastructure and third quarter results were supported by its initial contribution, as well as strong organic growth within our base business,” said Sam Pollock, Chief Executive Officer of Brookfield Infrastructure. “Looking ahead, we are confident in our ability to capitalize on new investment opportunities of scale across our target sectors and geographies.”

Brookfield reported net income of $413 million ($0.72 per unit) for the three-month period ended September 30, 2021 compared to $5 million (a loss of $0.12 per unit) in the prior year. Net income increased compared to the prior year as the current period benefited from organic growth at the high-end of our target range, contributions from recently closed acquisitions, and a gain on the sale of our U.S. district energy operation which closed in July.

Funds from Operations (or FFO) of $422 million for the quarter reflects a 16% increase compared with the same period last year. Results were supported by strong growth from our base business and the initial contribution from Inter Pipeline Ltd. ("IPL"). Excluding the recovery of shutdown-related effects experienced in 2020, organic growth was robust at 9%. This includes inflationary tariff increases and the commissioning of over $800 million in new capital projects in the last twelve months. Current quarter results exclude the impact related to the sale of various assets, which raised almost $2 billion of net proceeds for Brookfield Infrastructure this year.

Segment Performance

The utilities segment generated FFO of $182 million compared with $169 million in the prior year. Organic growth for the segment of 7% reflects inflation indexation and the commissioning of over $400 million of capital into the rate base during the last 12 months. Results also benefited from the acquisition of the remaining interest in our Brazilian regulated gas transmission operation. Last year’s results included our U.K. smart meter portfolio and North American district energy platform, which were divested earlier this year.

FFO for the transport segment was $181 million, an improvement of approximately 18% compared with the prior year. Results benefited from strong organic growth driven by economic recovery-fueled volumes and inflationary tariff increases. Growth is also attributable to a full-quarter contribution from our U.S. liquified natural gas (LNG) export terminal. Prior year results included a full contribution from our Australian export terminal, of which we sold a 22% stake in December 2020.

FFO for the midstream segment totaled $103 million, an annual increase of more than 55%. Results reflect a partial contribution from IPL, in addition to strong gas transportation volumes and the benefit of elevated commodity prices across our existing businesses. Prior year results reflected an additional 12.5% ownership in our U.S. gas pipeline, which was sold in March.

The data segment recorded FFO of $58 million, a 16% increase compared with the prior year. This reflects a full quarter of results from our Indian telecom tower business and organic growth within our existing operations. The contribution from organic growth includes inflationary price increases and the build-to-suit tower and fiber-to-the-home programs at our French telecom operation.

Update on Strategic Initiatives

We completed or advanced several important initiatives in, and subsequent to, the third quarter of 2021:

  1. Inter Pipeline Ltd. – We completed the privatization of IPL on October 28 and have made good initial progress implementing our 100-day plan. Initial activities include driving the construction and commissioning of the Heartland petrochemical complex (HPC) to ensure an on-time start-up in 2022, identifying areas for optimization and efficiency post-closing and further identifying near-term commercial opportunities to improve profitability of the business. As part of the commercial review, we are highly focused on opportunities where we can assist customers in reaching their net-zero goals.
  2. Australian Regulated Utility – Earlier this week, it was announced that Brookfield’s open-ended core infrastructure fund, alongside institutional partners, reached an agreement to acquire 100% of AusNet Services Ltd., a publicly traded regulated utility company in Australia for approximately A$17.8 billion on an enterprise value basis (A$8.3 billion equity value). These are high-quality, critical, regulated utilities that provide essential services within Victoria and are part of Australia’s backbone electricity transmission grid. The transaction is targeted to close in the second quarter of 2022, and BIP is expected to invest approximately $500 million.
  3. Chilean Toll Road Operation – During the quarter, we signed an agreement to divest Brookfield’s remaining 34% stake in our Chilean toll road operation. The transaction is expected to close this month and will generate net proceeds to Brookfield Infrastructure of approximately $160 million. This equates to an enterprise value consistent with the prior sales in 2019 and 2020 and an overall investment internal rate of return of approximately 16%.

Distribution and Dividend Declaration

The Board of Directors has declared a quarterly distribution in the amount of $0.51 per unit, payable on December 31, 2021 to unitholders of record as at the close of business on November 30, 2021.

The regular quarterly dividends on the Cumulative Class A Preferred Limited Partnership Units, Series 1, Series 3, Series 7, Series 9, Series 11, Series 13 and Series 14 have also been declared, as well as the capital gains dividend for BIP Investment Corporation Senior Preferred Shares, Series 1.

Brookfield Infrastructure Corporation ReportsThird Quarter 2021 Results

The Board of Directors of Brookfield Infrastructure Corporation (“BIPC” or our “company”) (NYSE, TSX: BIPC) today has declared a quarterly dividend in the amount of $0.51 per class A exchangeable subordinate voting share of BIPC (a “Share”), payable on December 31, 2021 to shareholders of record as at the close of business on November 30, 2021. This dividend is identical in amount per Share and has identical record and payment dates to the quarterly distribution announced today by BIP on its units.

The Shares of BIPC are structured with the intention of being economically equivalent to the non-voting limited partnership units of Brookfield Infrastructure Partnership L.P. (“BIP” or the “Partnership”) (NYSE: BIP; TSX: BIP.UN). We believe economic equivalence is achieved through identical dividends and distributions on the Shares and BIP’s units and each Share being exchangeable at the option of the holder for one BIP unit at any time. Given the economic equivalence, we expect that the market price of the Shares will be significantly impacted by the market price of BIP’s units and the combined business performance of our company and BIP as a whole. In addition to carefully considering the disclosure made in this news release in its entirety, shareholders are strongly encouraged to carefully review BIP’s letter to unitholders, supplemental information and its other continuous disclosure filings. BIP’s letter to unitholders and supplemental information are available at www.brookfield.com/infrastructure. Copies of the Partnership’s continuous disclosure filings are available electronically on EDGAR on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Results

The net income and Funds from Operations1 (FFO) of BIPC are captured in the Partnership’s financial statements and results.

Net income, after adjusting for revaluation and dividends paid on our Shares that are classified as liabilities under IFRS, was $46 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2021. This represents an increase of approximately $30 million over the prior year as results benefited from capital commissioned into rate base and the recovery of connections activity at our U.K. regulated distribution business, as well as inflationary tariff increases and an increased ownership interest at our Brazilian regulated gas transmission business.

Our business generated FFO of $112 million for the quarter, representing a 13% increase compared to the same period of the prior year. FFO in the current quarter benefited from inflationary-indexation and additions to rate base, as well as the acquisition of an additional interest in our Brazilian regulated gas transmission business. Last year’s results included our U.K. smart meter portfolio which was divested earlier this year.
