Forecasting Points CEI Cash Tax Payments Begin Early - Mid 2020s CQH Tax Sharing Payments Begin Early 2020s 2020 - 2030 Tax Rate Percentage of Pre-Tax Cash Flow CEI 0 - 5% CQH 10 - 15% 2031 - 2040 Tax Rate Percentage of Pre-Tax Cash Flow CEI 15 - 20% CQH 15 - 20% . 2020-2030 CEI tax rate primarily due to “80% NOL limitation” on newly generated NOLs from Tax Cuts and Jobs Act . As of December 31, 2017, CEI’s and CQH’s federal NOL carryforwards are equal to $4.7 billion and $2.8 billion, respectively . CQH tax sharing payments to CEI occur prior to CEI-level taxes • CQH’s NOL will be exhausted before CEI’s NOL which causes incremental free cash flow to CEI General Assumptions EIG Notes Conversion . CCH Holdco II Notes (EIG Notes) convert into ~25mm LNG shares in 2020 at estimated $75 / share (ultimate principal balance of ~$1.7bn) • Conversion at a 10% discount to LNG’s share price • Only 50% of the EIG Notes can be converted at initial conversion and subsequent conversions cannot occur for 90 days after conversion date RRJ Notes Conversion . CEI Convertible Unsecured Notes (RRJ Notes) convert into ~15mm LNG shares in 2021 at estimated $94 / share (ultimate principal balance of ~$1.4bn) 33


 
Target Leverage for Projects and Corporates Cheniere Energy Inc. (“CEI”) (NYSE American: LNG) Debt / EBITDA: “BB” Ratings Profile 4.0x Target Debt / EBITDA Deconsolidated Debt Outstanding Annual Deconsolidated EBITDA Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P. Corporates (NYSE American: CQP) “BB” Ratings Profile ~4.0x Target Debt / EBITDA DSCR = Average Debt Service Coverage Ratio: Cheniere Corpus Sabine Pass Christi Holdings, LLC Liquefaction, LLC EBITDA (“CCH”) (“SPL”) Scheduled Debt Service “BBB” Ratings Profile “BBB” Ratings Profile (Principal Repayments + Projects 1.4x avg. Target DSCR 1.5x avg. Target DSCR Interest Payments) CQP and CEI expected to have debt capacity to migrate up a portion of the project debt at leverage consistent with BB / Ba ratings at the corporate levels and BBB / Baa project ratings at SPL and CCH 34 Note: Chart represents simplified organizational structure. EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure. A definition of this non-GAAP measure is included in the appendix.


 
Long-term Capital Structure Plan . Utilize leverage capacity at CQP and CEI (the corporate levels) to delever SPL and CCH (the project levels) over the next 5-10 years . Debt incurrence test will force the deleveraging of SPL and CCH over time at 1.5x/1.4x DSCR . By migrating project debt up to CQP and CEI (subject to target ~4.0x decon. debt / EBITDA constraint), project level debt amortization requirements can be pushed out to the mid to late 2020s . Plan maximizes value to equity holders while adhering to indenture amortization requirements at the project levels . Investment grade ratings at the project levels and strong high yield (“HY”) ratings (BB / Ba) at the corporate levels can be achieved and maintained . This framework provides CEI significant free cash flow to invest and grow which can further defer substantial debt pay down, while at the same time returning capital to shareholders via share repurchases and/or dividends By taking advantage of leverage capacity at the corporate levels, project level debt amortization not required until the mid to late 2020s, even with no growth beyond 8 trains 35


 
Credit Ratings Policy Reasons to maintain IG ratings Reasons to maintain BB ratings at the project levels at the corporate levels . Project indentures already require amortization over time at IG . Project ratings capped by agencies to be no higher than three credit metrics notches above sponsor/owner ratings . Reduce working capital credit support needs for gas . Demonstrated access to HY market for SPL, CCH and other BB procurement midstream issuers . Depth of IG market will benefit pricing to refinance ~$20bn of . No significant commodity purchasing activities outside of project project debt entities requiring credit support or IG rating . Constraints to be BBB / Baa: . Constraints to be BB / Ba: • Indenture incurrence covenants of 1.5x and 1.4x • Maintain debt to EBITDA ratios of target ~4.0x contracted average DSCRs during operations (deconsolidated) • Target flexible on a temporary basis for acquisition or expansion-related indebtedness DSCR = Average Debt Service Coverage Ratio: Debt / EBITDA: Deconsolidated Debt Outstanding EBITDA Scheduled Debt Service Annual Deconsolidated EBITDA (Principal Repayments + Interest Payments) Note: EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure. A definition of this non-GAAP measure is included in the appendix. 36


 
Non-GAAP Measures In addition to disclosing financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the accompanying news release contains non-GAAP financial measures. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distributable Cash Flow per Share are non-GAAP financial Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA measures that we use to facilitate comparisons of operating performance across periods. These non-GAAP measures should be viewed as a supplement to and not a substitute for our U.S. GAAP measures of performance and the financial results calculated in The following table reconciles our actual Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA to U.S. GAAP results for the twelve accordance with U.S. GAAP and reconciliations from these results should be carefully evaluated. months ended December 31, 2017 and three months ended March 31, 2018 (in millions): Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA represents net loss attributable to Cheniere before net income (loss) attributable to the non-controlling Twelve Months Three Months interest, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for certain non-cash items, other non-operating income or expense Ended Ended items, and other items not otherwise predictive or indicative of ongoing operating performance, as detailed in the following December 31, March 31, reconciliation. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to represent cash flows from operations or net income (loss) as defined 2017 2018 by U.S. GAAP and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders $ (393 ) $ 357 Net income attributable to non-controlling interest 956 243 We believe Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA provides relevant and useful information to management, investors and other users of our Income tax provision 3 15 financial information in evaluating the effectiveness of our operating performance in a manner that is consistent with management’s Interest expense, net of capitalized interest 747 216 evaluation of business performance. We believe Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA is widely used by investors to measure a company’s Loss on early extinguishment of debt 100 - operating performance without regard to items such as interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization which vary substantially Derivative gain, net (7) (77) from company to company depending on capital structure, the method by which assets were acquired and depreciation policies. Other income (18 ) (7) Further, the exclusion of certain non-cash items, other non-operating income or expense items, and items not otherwise predictive or Income from operations $ 1,388 $ 747 indicative of ongoing operating performance enables comparability to prior period performance and trend analysis. Adjustments to reconcile income from operations to Consolidated Adjusted Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by taking net loss attributable to common stockholders before net income (loss) EBITDA: attributable to non-controlling interest, interest expense, net of capitalized interest, changes in the fair value and settlement of our Depreciation and amortization expense 356 109 Loss from changes in fair value of commodity and FX derivatives, net 33 37 interest rate derivatives, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and adjusting for the effects of certain non-cash items, other non- operating income or expense items, and other items not otherwise predictive or indicative of ongoing operating performance, including Total non-cash compensation expense 28 14 the effects of modification or extinguishment of debt, impairment expense, changes in the fair value of our commodity and foreign Impairment expense and loss on disposal of assets 19 - currency exchange (“FX”) derivatives and non-cash compensation expense. We believe the exclusion of these items enables investors Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA $ 1,824 $ 907 and other users of our financial information to assess our sequential and year-over-year performance and operating trends on a more comparable basis and is consistent with management’s own evaluation of performance Contracted EBITDA represents the EBITDA generated from production sold to contracted SPA foundation customers, CMI deals in the book and the related lifting margin and is calculated by net income (loss) before net income (loss) attributable to the non-controlling interest (for CEI), interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We believe Contracted EBITDA provides relevant and useful information to management, investors and others users of our financial information in evaluating how lenders and the rating agencies calculate debt metrics. Contracted EBITDA is not intended to represent cash flows from operations or net income (loss) as defined by U.S. GAAP and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Distributable Cash Flow is defined as cash received, or expected to be received, from its ownership and interests in CQP, CQH and Cheniere Corpus Christi Holdings, LLC, cash received (used) by its integrated marketing function (other than cash for capital expenditures) less interest, taxes and maintenance capital expenditures associated with Cheniere and not the underlying entities. Management uses this measure and believes it provides users of our financial statements a useful measure reflective of our business’s ability to generate cash earnings to supplement the comparable GAAP measure. Distributable Cash Flow per Share and Distributable Cash Flow per Unit are calculated by dividing Distributable Cash Flow by the weighted average number of common shares or units outstanding. We believe Distributable Cash Flow is a useful performance measure for management, investors and other users of our financial information to evaluate our performance and to measure and estimate the ability of our assets to generate cash earnings after servicing our debt, paying cash taxes and expending sustaining capital, that could be used for discretionary purposes such as common stock dividends, stock repurchases, retirement of debt, or expansion capital expenditures. Management uses this measure and believes it provides users of our financial statements a useful measure reflective of our business’s ability to generate cash earnings to supplement the comparable GAAP measure. Distributable Cash Flow is not intended to represent cash flows from operations or net income (loss) as defined by U.S. GAAP and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Non-GAAP measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or in lieu of an analysis of our results as reported under GAAP, and should be evaluated only on a supplementary basis. 37
