Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Financial Statements


The following information, including the exhibit attached hereto, shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

On November 28, 2012, Suburban Propane Partners, L.P. issued a press release (the "Press Release") describing its Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter Financial Results. A copy of the Press Release has been furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report.

Within the Press Release, we reference earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") which is considered a non-GAAP financial measure. Additionally, we discuss EBITDA excluding the impact of unrealized (non-cash) gains or losses attributable to mark-to-market activity on derivative instruments and other items ("Adjusted EBITDA"). Our calculations of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by operating activities is presented in the Press Release furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report,

We provide these non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that they assist the investment community in properly assessing our liquidity on a year-over-year basis. In addition, we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and industry analysts that facilitates the comparison of cash flows between periods for purposes of evaluating our ability to meet our debt service obligations and to pay quarterly distributions.

We also reference gross margins, computed as revenues less cost of products sold as those amounts are reported on the consolidated financial statements. Since cost of products sold does not include depreciation and amortization expense, the gross margin we reference is considered a non-GAAP financial measure. Given the nature of our business, the level of profitability in the retail propane, fuel oil, natural gas and electricity businesses is largely dependent on the difference between retail sales price and product cost. Therefore, we discuss gross margins in order to provide investors and industry analysts with useful information to facilitate their understanding of the impact of the commodity prices on profitability.


(d) Exhibits.

99.1 Press Release of Suburban Propane Partners, L.P. dated November 28, 2012, describing the Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter Financial Results.
