Non-GAAP financial measures Reconciliation tables of adjusted EBITDA, adjusted earnings, adjusted earnings per common share and distributable cash flow are available in the appendix to this press release

GAAP profit attributable to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2020 increased by $ 41 million or $ 0.02 per share compared to same period in 2019 Period-over-period comparability of profit attributable to common shareholders was influenced by certain unusual and infrequent or other non-operating factors, which are set out in the reconciliation schedule included in Appendix A of this press release

Q3 2020 Adjusted EBITDA Decreased by $ 111 Million Compared to Same Period in 2019 Business benefited from additional profits from positive tariff settlement on Texas Eastern, new asset contributions commissioned at the end of 2019 and the first half of 2020 and customer growth and synergies in gas distribution and storage The strong performance of the core business was more than offset by lower contributions from energy services due to a significant squeeze in some regional and lower major flows related to COVID-19, and the lack of contributions from the Canadian federally regulated natural gas gathering and processing company sold on December 31, 2019

Adjusted earnings for the third quarter of 2020 decreased by $ 163 million and per share by $ 0.08 The decrease is mainly due to lower Adjusted EBITDA as well as a reduction in capitalized interest and an increase in l  » depreciation of new assets put into service throughout 2019, mainly under the Canadian Line 3 replacement program

Mainline volumes recover in line with outlook released in May and are expected to be 100-300 kb / d below company expectations ahead of COVID19 for the fourth quarter In addition, declining margins in energy services, lower distributions of DCP shares linked to previously executed distribution reduction and higher integrity costs in gas transmission are expected to have a negative impact on fourth quarter results versus full year forecast

The Company continues to obtain debt financing at attractive rates and the proceeds from these offerings have been used primarily to reduce existing indebtedness and partially finance capital projects During the third quarter, the Company has Completed the previously announced US $ 1 project Offer of 0 billion 60-year hybrid subordinated bonds in the US bond capital markets These hybrid notes are eligible for 50% equity treatment by most rating agencies, which further strengthens the financial strength of the company

In the third quarter, the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) issued its final order to approve the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) and reinstate the certificate of need and road permit, then rejected all related reconsideration requests This action substantially complements the regulatory review process

State and Federal Agencies Continue to Advance Needed Environmental Permits Alongside AMPA’s Contested Case Hearing Process Related to State 401 Water Quality Certificate Completed October 16, 2020 , Enbridge received a favorable recommendation from the ALJ on all five issues reviewed, further confirming the comprehensive regulatory record and critical nature of this integrity project.

The company continues to advance its mainline subcontracting request, which is currently under review by the Canada Energy Regulator (CER) The contract offer reflects two years of negotiations with shippers and benefits from the support of shippers carrying 75% of mainline volumes This support reflects the competitiveness of the supply, which will support the best net revenues for shippers and secure long-term demand for western crude oil Canadian
