Southcross Energy Partners repeats Q4 adjusted EBITDA view $20M- $24M Southcross Energy Partners expects near term de-leveraging and is targeting 3.0x-4.0x leverage ratio and 1.1x-1.2x distribution coverage with "prudent use of equity" to fund growth. Southcross expects to achieve at least 1.0x coverage of common units in 1Q15 and expects to grow distributions in 2015. The company says its gross operating margin is becoming increasingly fixed fee oriented and it anticipates the ability to grow adjusted EBITDA without significant growth capital.
