Glossary

Conclusion

The current rating on PAGP is positive.  PAPG is a big IPO and we don’t see much downside risk.  Because of expected Quantitative Easing from the Fed interest rates should stay low, which is a positive for PAPG.  As long as the market is stable at least, PAPG should be bought on the IPO, with moderate to low expectations.

Business

PAGP’s parent — Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (PAA) with $17.5 billion market cap — is carving out its Incentive Distribution Rights (IDRs).  

Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (Plains) is engaged in the transportation, storage, terminalling and marketing of crude oil and refined products, as well as in the processing, transportation, fractionation, storage and marketing of natural gas liquids (NGL)

21% of the IDRs are being offered on the IPO, as Class A stock.  The only asset of PAGP is its 128 million shares of class A common stock in the Identive Distribution Rights vehicle, PAGP.

Incentive distribution rights (IDRs)

IDRs are the risky frosting on the distribution cake  and only get paid if minimum distributions are exceeded by the parent: IDR payments are explicitly tied to distribution growth of the parent.

The yield on the parent PAA is currently 4.7%.  The projected yield for PAGP (the public portion of PAA’s Incentive Distribution Rights) is 2.5%, which will increase if PAA’s growth continues.

PAA’s IDRs and its indirect interest in PAA’s 2% general partner interest entitles PAGP’s stockholders to receive (through several corporate vehicles, see organziationchart)  without duplication:

    •15% of all cash distributed in a quarter after $0.2250 has been distributed in respect of each common unit of PAA for that quarter;

    •25% of all cash distributed in a quarter after $0.2475 has been distributed in respect of each common unit of PAA for that quarter; and

    •50% of all cash distributed in a quarter after $0.3375 has been distributed in respect of each common unit of PAA for that quarter.

PAGP owns 21% of the incentive distribution rights from the parent, PAA, through several corporate vehicles.

5% stockholder pre-IPO

(“PAA Management”) and certain entities and individuals affiliated with Occidental Petroleum Corporation (“Oxy”), The Energy & Minerals Group (“EMG”), and Kayne Anderson Investment Management Inc (“Kayne Anderson”).

Use of proceeds
