EQT Midstream’s EV-to-adjusted-EBITDA multiple

EQM’s forward EV-to-EBITDA (enterprise value to earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) multiple was 9.13x as of June 19, 2017. That’s below the peer median forward EV-to-EBITDA multiple of 9.56x.

EQM’s current valuation looks attractive, considering its significant expansion opportunities. These opportunities include the drop-down opportunities from the merger of EQT Corporation (EQT) and Rice Energy (RICE), strong fee-based cash flows, industry-leading distribution growth guidance, impressive distribution coverage, low leverage, and a strong presence in the prolific Marcellus and Utica shale plays. The partnership is targeting a 20.0% distribution growth in 2017.
