Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2016 Financial Results

For fourth-quarter 2016, Williams reported an unaudited net loss attributable to Williams of $15 million, a $700 million improvement from fourth-quarter 2015 net loss. The favorable change was due primarily to the absence of a $1.1 billion pre-tax impairment of goodwill and $698 million of lower pre-tax impairments of equity-method investments and other assets. The improvement also reflected lower operating and maintenance (O&M) and selling, general, and administrative (SG&A) expenses and higher commodity margins.

For the year, Williams reported an unaudited net loss attributable to Williams of $424 million, a $147 million improvement when compared to results for full-year 2015. The change was driven primarily by the absence of a $1.1 billion pre-tax impairment of goodwill and $929 million of lower pre-tax impairments of equity-method investments. The favorable change was partially offset by an increase of $664 million in pre-tax impairments of certain assets, primarily associated with our disposed Canadian assets, $119 million of lower insurance recoveries, and an unfavorable change in net income attributable to non-controlling interests driven primarily by higher WPZ income and reduced incentive distributions from WPZ associated with the termination of the WPZ Merger Agreement.

Williams reported fourth-quarter 2016 Adjusted EBITDA of $1.123 billion, a $57 million increase over fourth-quarter 2015. The favorable change was due primarily to a $49 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA from the Williams Partners segment.

For the year, Williams reported Adjusted EBITDA of $4.436 billion, an increase of $332 million compared to full-year 2015 results. The increase was due primarily to a $338 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA from the Williams Partners segment.
