Norton II, ONEOK president and chief executive officer. "With volume momentum across our operations, a full-year earnings contribution from the refined products and crude segment, and the realization of acquisition-related synergies, we've guided to double-digit adjusted EBITDA growth in 2024.

"Our confidence in ONEOK's underlying business fundamentals and future performance support our commitment to maximize investor value through disciplined capital-growth opportunities, maintaining a strong balance sheet, dividend growth and share repurchases," added Norton. "With our larger scale and more diversified operations, we're even better positioned to support our customers, provide essential energy services and create value for our stakeholders."

also includes a one-time insurance settlement gain of $779 million related to the Medford incident.

(d) Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (adjusted EBITDA) is a non-GAAP measure.
In 2023, ONEOK updated its calculation methodology of adjusted EBITDA to include adjusted EBITDA from unconsolidated
affiliates. Prior periods, which have not been restated, included equity in net earnings from investments.

FULL-YEAR 2023 FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE

ONEOK reported full-year 2023 net income and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (adjusted EBITDA) of $2.7 billion and $5.2 billion, respectively.

Higher 2023 results were driven primarily by higher volumes across ONEOK's systems, higher average fee rates, and higher natural gas storage and transportation services. Results included higher operating costs due primarily to higher employee-related costs and higher outside services due to the growth of ONEOK's operations.

Full-year 2023 results included $633 million related to the Medford incident and $158 million of transaction costs.

Additionally, 2023 results included $465 million of adjusted EBITDA in the refined products and crude segment following the closing of the Magellan acquisition on Sept. 25, 2023.

2024 Financial Guidance:

ONEOK's 2024 net income and adjusted EBITDA guidance includes higher earnings from all business segments (excluding the Medford insurance settlement in 2023), includes a full-year contribution from the refined products and crude segment and approximately $160 million to $190 million (midpoint of $175 million) of total realized annual cost and initial commercial synergy impacts in the first year post the Magellan acquisition.

ONEOK continues to prioritize synergy opportunities primarily based on three factors: time-to-market, economic value and capital expenditure requirements.

Building off of the opportunities captured in 2024, ONEOK expects additional annual synergies approaching $125 million in 2025 as a result of batching, blending, supply chain synergies and system optimization. Additional commercial synergies are expected in 2026 as necessary capital expenditure projects are completed.

Capital Expenditures:

Total capital expenditures are expected to range between $1.75 billion to $1.95 billion.

Capital expenditure guidance includes the MB-6 NGL fractionator, West Texas NGL pipeline expansion project and the expansion of the Elk Creek NGL pipeline, which will bring total capacity out of the Rocky Mountain region to 575,000 barrels per day. Projects that have not reached a final investment decision are not included in 2024 expectations.

Expected 2024 Performance Drivers:

Natural Gas Liquids

  • Higher exchange services margins from an expected increase in NGL raw feed throughput volumes in the Rocky Mountain and Gulf Coast/Permian regions from producer activity, plant connections and plant expansions completed in 2023 and 2024.
  • More than 90% fee-based earnings.

Refined Products and Crude

  • Full-year effect of higher refined products tariff rates driven by a mid-year tariff increase of 11.5% in July 2023 and a mid-single digit tariff increase expected in 2024.
  • Higher volumes and margins related to liquids blending, offset partially by lower contributions from joint ventures.
  • More than 85% fee-based earnings.

Natural Gas Gathering and Processing

  • Approximately 7% increase in natural gas volumes processed driven by increasing producer activity in the Rocky Mountain region.
  • Approximately 530 to 600 Rocky Mountain region well connections in 2024.
  • Approximately 60 to 70 Mid-Continent region well connections in 2024.
  • Approximately 85% fee-based earnings.

Natural Gas Pipelines

  • More than 95% transportation capacity contracted.
  • Increased demand for long-term pipeline and storage capacity.
  • More than 95% fee-based earnings.

Returning Value to Investors

  • Targeting an annual dividend growth rate ranging between 3% to 4%.
  • Combination of common dividends and share repurchases is expected to trend towards a target of approximately 75% to 85% of forecasted cash flow from operations after capital expenditures over the next four years.
  • Target debt-to-EBITDA ratio of approximately 3.5 times.

The increase in fourth quarter 2023 adjusted EBITDA, compared with the fourth quarter 2022, primarily reflects:

  • A $135 million increase in exchange services due primarily to higher volumes across ONEOK's system and lower volumes of unfractionated NGLs in inventory;
  • An $11 million increase in earnings from unconsolidated affiliates due primarily to higher volumes delivered to the Overland Pass Pipeline and the change in calculation methodology in 2023; offset by
  • A $47 million decrease in optimization and marketing due primarily to lower earnings on sales of purity NGLs previously held in inventory, lower optimization volumes and narrower location and commodity price differentials;
  • A $34 million increase in third-party fractionation costs due to the Medford incident; and
  • A $26 million increase in operating costs due primarily to higher employee costs and property insurance premiums.

The increase in adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2023, compared with 2022, primarily reflects:

  • A $663 million increase related to the Medford incident, due to the settlement gain of $779 million, offset partially by $146 million of third-party fractionation costs, compared with an approximately $30 million unfavorable impact of the 45-day waiting period in 2022;
  • A $303 million increase in exchange services due primarily to higher volumes across ONEOK's system, offset partially by narrower commodity price differentials;
  • A $32 million increase in earnings from unconsolidated affiliates due primarily to higher volumes delivered to the Overland Pass Pipeline and the change in calculation methodology in 2023;
  • A $20 million increase due primarily to higher volumes on the ONEOK North System and higher storage revenue; and
  • A $12 million increase in optimization and marketing due primarily to higher earnings on sales of purity NGLs previously held in inventory; offset by
  • An $88 million increase in operating costs due primarily to higher employee-related costs and higher outside services due to the growth of ONEOK's operations, and higher property insurance premiums.

LINK TO EARNINGS TABLES AND PRESENTATION:

https://ir.oneok.com/financial-information/financial-reports

NON-GAAP (GENERALLY ACCEPTED ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES) FINANCIAL MEASURES:

ONEOK has disclosed in this news release adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (adjusted EBITDA), which is a non-GAAP financial metric, used to measure the company's financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income adjusted for interest expense, depreciation and amortization, noncash impairment charges, income taxes, noncash compensation expense, and other noncash items; and includes adjusted EBITDA from the company's unconsolidated affiliates using the same recognition and measurement methods used to record equity in net earnings of unconsolidated affiliates. Adjusted EBITDA from unconsolidated affiliates is calculated consistently with the definition above and excludes items such as interest, taxes, depreciation and other noncash items.

Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it and similar measures are used by many companies in the industry as a measure of financial performance and is commonly employed by financial analysts and others to evaluate ONEOK's financial performance and to compare the company's financial performance with the performance of other companies within the industry. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP.

This non-GAAP financial measure excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income. Additionally, this calculation may not be comparable with similarly titled measures of other companies. A reconciliation of net income to adjusted EBITDA is included in the tables.
