PG&E Corporation Reports Third-Quarter 2020 Financial Results,
and 2020 and 2021 GAAP and Non-GAAP Core Earnings and EPS Guidance

Recorded GAAP earnings were $0.04 per share for the third quarter of 2020, compared to losses of $3.06 per share for the same period in 2019.
Non-GAAP core earnings were $0.22 per share for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $1.11 per share for the same period in 2019.
2020 EPS guidance adjusted for GAAP losses in the range of $1.00 to $1.06 and reaffirmed for non-GAAP core earnings of $1.60 to $1.63 per share.
2021 EPS guidance adjusted for GAAP earnings in the range of $0.14 to $0.26 and reaffirmed non-GAAP core earnings of $0.95 to $1.05 per share.

SAN FRANCISCO — PG&E Corporation (NYSE: PCG) recorded third-quarter 2020 income available for common shareholders of $83 million, or $0.04 per share, as reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). This compares with losses attributable to common shareholders of $1.6 billion, or $3.06 per share, for the third quarter of 2019.

GAAP results include non-core items that management does not consider representative of ongoing earnings, which totaled $378 million after-tax, or $0.18 per share, for the quarter. These results were primarily driven by costs related to PG&E Corporation’s and Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (Utility) reorganization cases under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (Chapter 11). Other non-core items include the amortization of wildfire insurance fund contributions under Assembly Bill (AB) 1054, investigation remedies and delayed cost recovery, Kincade-fire related costs, and prior period net regulatory recoveries.

PG&E Corporation and Pacific Gas and Electric Company emerged from Chapter 11 on July 1, 2020 after successfully completing the restructuring process and achieving approval for its Plan of Reorganization confirmed by the United States Bankruptcy Court.

“We are focused on building a new PG&E that will deliver on our commitments to operate safely, reduce risk, and put our customers at the center of everything we do,” said Bill Smith, Interim Chief Executive Officer, PG&E Corporation. “Given the many challenges facing California, from wildfires to COVID-19, we know that being a trustworthy partner is more important than ever. We will do that by continuing our important wildfire mitigation work, leveraging innovative technologies to help California meet its clean energy goals, and achieving our performance targets in all areas of our business.”

Wildfire Mitigation Update

To further reduce the potential for wildfires associated with its electrical equipment in high fire-threat areas, PG&E is executing its 2020 Wildfire Mitigation Plan as submitted to the CPUC on February 7, 2020. The company is on track to meet its goals for each of the four categories of

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

NOTE 1: ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

Organization and Basis of Presentation

PG&E Corporation is a holding company whose primary operating subsidiary is Pacific Gas and Electric Company, a public utility serving northern and central California.  The Utility generates revenues mainly through the sale and delivery of electricity and natural gas to customers.  The Utility is primarily regulated by the CPUC and the FERC.  In addition, the NRC oversees the licensing, construction, operation, and decommissioning of the Utility’s nuclear generation facilities.

This quarterly report on Form 10-Q is a combined report of PG&E Corporation and the Utility.  PG&E Corporation’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of PG&E Corporation, the Utility, and other wholly owned and controlled subsidiaries.  The Utility’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of the Utility and its wholly owned and controlled subsidiaries.  All intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.  The Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements apply to both PG&E Corporation and the Utility.  PG&E Corporation and the Utility assess financial performance and allocate resources on a consolidated basis (i.e., the companies operate in one segment).

The accompanying Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in conformity with GAAP and in accordance with the interim period reporting requirements of Form 10-Q and reflect all adjustments that management believes are necessary for the fair presentation of PG&E Corporation’s and the Utility’s financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows for the periods presented.  The information at December 31, 2019 in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets included in this quarterly report was derived from the audited Consolidated Balance Sheets in Item 8 of the 2019 Form 10-K.  This quarterly report should be read in conjunction with the 2019 Form 10-K. 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the use of estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Some of the more significant estimates and assumptions relate to the Utility’s regulatory assets and liabilities, wildfire-related liabilities, legal and regulatory contingencies, the Wildfire Fund, environmental remediation liabilities, AROs, insurance receivables, and pension and other post-retirement benefit plan obligations. Management believes that its estimates and assumptions reflected in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements are appropriate and reasonable. A change in management’s estimates or assumptions could result in an adjustment that would have a material impact on PG&E Corporation’s and the Utility’s financial condition, results of operations, liquidity, and cash flows during the period in which such change occurred.

Chapter 11 Emergence and Going Concern

The accompanying Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the continuity of operations, the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. PG&E Corporation and the Utility suffered material losses as a result of the 2017 Northern California wildfires and the 2018 Camp fire, which contributed to the decision to file for Chapter 11 protection on January 29, 2019. Uncertainty regarding these matters previously raised substantial doubt about PG&E Corporation’s and the Utility’s abilities to continue as going concerns.

As a result of PG&E Corporation’s and the Utility’s emergence from Chapter 11 on the Effective Date of July 1, 2020, substantial doubt has been alleviated regarding the Company’s ability to meet its obligations as they become due within one year after the date the financial statements were issued. (For more information regarding the Chapter 11 Cases, see Note 2 below.)

NOTE 2: BANKRUPTCY FILING

In addition, the Plan also provides for the following in connection with or following the implementation of the Plan:

Holders of claims related to the 2016 Ghost Ship fire are entitled to pursue their claims against PG&E Corporation and the Utility (with any recovery being limited to amounts available under PG&E Corporation’s and the Utility’s insurance policies for the 2016 year);

The holders of such claims will have no recourse to or claims whatsoever against PG&E Corporation and the Utility or their assets and properties.

The Plan as confirmed by the Confirmation Order provides for certain financing transactions as follows:

The foregoing financing transactions occurred on or around the Effective Date.

On July 27, 2020, Elliott Management Corporation, a Consenting Noteholder, filed a motion with the Bankruptcy Court asserting an approximately $250 million administrative claim against PG&E Corporation and the Utility, alleging that PG&E Corporation and the Utility breached the Noteholder RSA by failing to use their best efforts to cause Backstop Parties to transfer up to $2.0 billion of Backstop Commitments to certain of the Consenting Noteholders. On August 26, 2020, PG&E Corporation and the Utility filed an initial legal opposition to the Elliott Management Corporation’s motion. Elliott Management Corporation filed its response on September 14, 2020, and PG&E Corporation and the Utility filed their reply on September 25, 2020. A hearing on the initial legal opposition to the motion was held on October 13, 2020. On October 22, 2020, the Bankruptcy Court issued a decision and separate orders disallowing the administrative expense claims asserted by Elliott Management Corporation and other Consenting Noteholders. PG&E Corporation and the Utility are unable to predict the timing and outcome of any appeals of the Bankruptcy Court’s decision and orders disallowing these claims.

On the Effective Date, pursuant to the Plan, the Utility entered into a tax benefits payment agreement (the “Tax Benefits Payment Agreement”) with the Fire Victim Trust, pursuant to which the Utility agreed to pay to the Fire Victim Trust in cash an aggregate amount of $1.35 billion, comprising (i) at least $650 million of tax benefits arising from certain tax deductions related to pre-petition wildfires (“Tax Benefits”) for fiscal year 2020 to be paid on or before January 15, 2021 (the “First Payment Date”) and (ii) of the remainder of $1.35 billion of Tax Benefits for fiscal year 2021 to be paid on or before January 15, 2022.

27


Also on the Effective Date, pursuant to the Plan, the Utility entered into an assignment agreement with the Fire Victim Trust, pursuant to which the Utility agreed to transfer to the Fire Victim Trust on the Effective Date 477 million shares (such shares, the “Fire Victim Trust Shares”) of common stock of PG&E Corporation, no par value (the “Common Stock”). As a result of the Equity Units Underwriters exercising their option to purchase 1.45 million additional Equity Units, on August 3, 2020, PG&E Corporation made an equity contribution of 748,415 shares to the Utility which delivered such additional shares of common stock to the Fire Victim Trust pursuant to an anti-dilution provision in the assignment agreement with the Fire Victim Trust.

Further, on the Effective Date, PG&E Corporation and the Utility funded a $10 million fund established for the benefit of the Supporting Public Entities under the PSAs in accordance with the terms of the Plan and the PSAs with the Supporting Public Entities, and also made a payment of $1.0 billion in cash to the public entities who are party to the PSAs with the Supporting Public Entities. Also, on the Effective Date, PG&E Corporation and the Utility funded $100 million to the Subrogation Wildfire Trust and placed the balance of the $11.0 billion in a segregated escrow account established and owned by the Subrogation Wildfire Trust for the benefit of holders of Subrogation Claims, which was subsequently paid to the Subrogation Wildfire Trust.

Equity Financing

In connection with its emergence from Chapter 11 in July 2020, PG&E raised an aggregate of $9.0 billion of gross proceeds through the issuance of common stock and other equity-linked instruments. For more information, see Note 6 below.

Equity Backstop Commitments and Forward Stock Purchase Agreements

As of March 6, 2020, PG&E Corporation entered into Chapter 11 Plan Backstop Commitment Letters (collectively, as amended by the Consent Agreements (as defined below), the “Backstop Commitment Letters”) with investors (collectively, the “Backstop Parties”), pursuant to which the Backstop Parties severally agreed to fund up to $12.0 billion of proceeds to finance the Plan through the purchase of PG&E Corporation common stock, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in such Backstop Commitment Letters (the “Backstop Commitments”). As a result of PG&E Corporation emerging from Chapter 11 on July 1, 2020, the Backstop Commitments were not utilized and terminated in accordance with their terms.

The commitment premium for the Backstop Commitments was paid in shares of PG&E Corporation’s common stock (with each Backstop Party receiving its pro rata share of 119 million shares of PG&E Corporation’s common stock based on the proportion of the amount of such Backstop Party’s Backstop Commitment to $12.0 billion). PG&E Corporation issued the commitment premium shares to the Backstop Parties on July 1, 2020 in connection with emerging from Chapter 11.

On June 30, 2020, PG&E Corporation recorded approximately $1.1 billion of expense related to the Backstop Commitment premium in Reorganization items, net. This amount was primarily based on PG&E Corporation’s closing stock price on June 30, 2020 of $8.87 per share. On the Effective Date, PG&E Corporation’s closing price was $9.03 per share and as a result, PG&E Corporation recorded an additional $19 million expense as of September 30, 2020.

Under the Backstop Commitment Letters, PG&E Corporation and the Utility have also agreed to reimburse the Backstop Parties for reasonable professional fees and expenses of up to $34 million in the aggregate for the legal advisors and $19 million in the aggregate for the financial advisor, upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Backstop Commitment Letters. As of September 30, 2020, PG&E Corporation recorded $49 million in professional fees and related expenses to the Backstop Parties in Reorganization items, net.

In connection with PG&E Corporation’s underwritten offerings of up to $5.75 billion of equity securities to finance the transactions contemplated by the Plan (the “Offerings”), up to $523 million was issuable pursuant to customary options granted to the underwriters thereof to purchase the Option Securities (as defined below in Note 6).

28


On June 19, 2020, PG&E Corporation entered into prepaid forward contracts (the “Forward Stock Purchase Agreements”) with the Backstop Parties. Each Forward Stock Purchase Agreement provided that, subject to certain conditions, the Backstop Party will purchase on the Effective Date, and receive on the Settlement Date (as defined in each Forward Stock Purchase Agreement) an amount of common stock of PG&E Corporation equal to its pro rata share of the value of the Option Securities not purchased by the underwriters (such amount, each Backstop Party’s “Greenshoe Backstop Purchase Amount” and all Greenshoe Backstop Purchase Amounts in the aggregate, the “Aggregate Greenshoe Backstop Purchase Amount”), at a price per share equal to the lesser of (i) the lowest per share price of common stock sold on an underwritten basis to the public in an offering of common stock of PG&E Corporation, as disclosed on the cover page of the prospectus or prospectus supplement, and (ii) the price per share payable by the investors party to the Investment Agreement dated as of June 7, 2020 (such lesser price, the “Settlement Price”). The Settlement Price was $9.50 per share. Each Forward Stock Purchase Agreement expired on August 3, 2020.

On June 25, 2020, the Backstop Parties funded the Greenshoe Backstop Purchase Amount to PG&E Corporation in the amount of $523 million which was recorded in Other current liabilities on the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. PG&E Corporation applied the proceeds of such funding to distributions under the Plan on the Effective Date. On August 3, 2020, PG&E Corporation redeemed $120.5 million of the Forward Stock Purchase Agreements payable in cash as a result of the exercise by the underwriters of their option to purchase Equity Units pursuant to the Equity Units Underwriting Agreement (as defined below in Note 6). On August 3, 2020, PG&E Corporation delivered 42.3 million shares of PG&E Corporation common stock to the Backstop Parties to settle the portion of the Forward Stock Purchase Agreements that was not redeemed.

Additionally, each Forward Stock Purchase Agreement provided that, subject to the consummation by PG&E Corporation of the Offerings, PG&E Corporation would issue to each Backstop Party its pro rata share of 50 million shares of common stock (such shares, each Backstop Party’s “Additional Backstop Premium Shares”). The Additional Backstop Premium Shares were issued to Backstop Parties on the Effective Date. On June 30, 2020, PG&E Corporation recorded $444 million of expense related to the Additional Backstop Premium Shares in Reorganization items, net. This amount was based primarily on PG&E Corporation’s closing stock price on June 30, 2020 of $8.87 per share. On the Effective Date, PG&E Corporation’s closing stock price was $9.03 per share and as a result, PG&E Corporation recorded an additional $8 million expense as of September 30, 2020.

Financial Reporting in Reorganization

Effective on the Petition Date and up to June 30, 2020, PG&E Corporation and the Utility applied accounting standards applicable to reorganizations, which are applicable to companies under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. These accounting standards require the financial statements for periods subsequent to the Petition Date to distinguish transactions and events that are directly associated with the reorganization from the ongoing operations of the business. Expenses, realized gains and losses, and provisions for losses that was directly associated with reorganization proceedings must have been reported separately as reorganization items, net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. In addition, the balance sheet must have distinguished pre-petition LSTC of PG&E Corporation and the Utility from pre-petition liabilities that were not subject to compromise, post-petition liabilities, and liabilities of the subsidiaries of PG&E Corporation that were not debtors in the Chapter 11 Cases in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. LSTC are pre-petition obligations that were not fully secured and had at least a possibility of not being repaid at the full claim amount. Where there was uncertainty about whether a secured claim would be paid or impaired pursuant to the Chapter 11 Cases, PG&E Corporation and the Utility classified the entire amount of the claim as LSTC.

Furthermore, the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities are subject to uncertainty. Pursuant to the Plan and Confirmation Order, actions to enforce or otherwise effect the payment of certain claims against PG&E Corporation and the Utility in existence before the Petition Date were subject to an injunction and were subject to treatment under the Plan. These claims were reflected as LSTC in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at December 31, 2019. Additional claims may arise for contingencies and other unliquidated and disputed amounts.

PG&E Corporation’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements are presented on a consolidated basis and include the accounts of PG&E Corporation and the Utility and other subsidiaries of PG&E Corporation and the Utility that individually and in aggregate are immaterial. Such other subsidiaries did not file for bankruptcy.

The Utility’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements are presented on a consolidated basis and include the accounts of the Utility and other subsidiaries of the Utility that individually and in aggregate are immaterial. Such other subsidiaries did not file for bankruptcy.

29


Upon emergence from Chapter 11 on July 1, 2020, PG&E Corporation and the Utility were not required to apply fresh start accounting based on the provisions of ASC 852 since the entity’s reorganization value immediately before the date of confirmation is more than the total of all its post-petition liabilities and allowed claims.

Liabilities Subject to Compromise

As a result of the commencement of the Chapter 11 Cases, the payment of pre-petition liabilities was subject to compromise or other treatment pursuant to the Plan. Generally, actions to enforce or otherwise effect payment of pre-petition liabilities were subject to an injunction and will be satisfied pursuant to the Plan and the Chapter 11 claims reconciliation process.

Prior to June 30, 2020, pre-petition liabilities that were subject to compromise were required to be reported at the amounts expected to be allowed. Therefore, liabilities subject to compromise as of December 31, 2019 in the table below reflected management’s estimates of amounts expected to be allowed in the Chapter 11 Cases, based upon, among other things, the status of negotiations with creditors. As of June 30, 2020, such amounts were reclassified to current or non-current liabilities in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, based upon management’s judgment as to the timing for settlement of such liabilities.

Liabilities subject to compromise as of December 31, 2019 which were settled or reclassified during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 consist of the following:

(4) As of October 23, 2020, $5 million and $801 million has been repaid by PG&E Corporation and the Utility, respectively.

Chapter 11 Claims Process

PG&E Corporation and the Utility have received over 100,000 proofs of claim since the Petition Date, of which approximately 80,000 were channeled to the Subrogation Wildfire Trust and Fire Victim Trust. The claims channeled to the Subrogation Wildfire Trust and Fire Victim Trust will be resolved by such trusts and PG&E Corporation and the Utility have no further liability in connection with such claims. PG&E Corporation and the Utility continue their review and analysis of certain remaining claims including litigation claims, trade creditor claims, non-qualified benefit plan claims, along with other tax and regulatory claims, and therefore the ultimate liability of PG&E Corporation or the Utility for such claims may differ from the amounts asserted in such claims. Allowed claims are paid in accordance with the Plan and the Confirmation Order.

The Bankruptcy Code provides that the confirmation of a plan of reorganization discharges a debtor from substantially all debts arising prior to confirmation, other than as provided in the Plan or the Confirmation Order.

30


The Plan, however, provides that the holders of certain claims may pursue their claims against PG&E Corporation and the Utility on or after the Effective Date, including, but not limited to, the following:

claims arising after the January 29, 2019 Petition Date that constitute administrative expense claims, which will not be discharged pursuant to the Plan, other than allowed administrative expense claims that have been paid in cash or otherwise satisfied in the ordinary course in an amount equal to the allowed amount of such claim on or prior to the Effective Date;

claims of the Ghost Ship fire litigation (with any recovery being limited to amounts available under PG&E Corporation’s and the Utility’s insurance policies for the 2016 year);

claims arising out of or based on the 2019 Kincade fire, which the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection has determined was caused by the Utility’s transmission lines; which is currently under investigation by the CPUC and the Sonoma County District Attorney’s Office; and which may also be under investigation by various other entities, including law enforcement agencies; and

certain FERC refund proceedings, workers’ compensation benefits and environmental claims.

Furthermore, holders of certain claims may assert that they are entitled under the Plan or the Bankruptcy Code to pursue, or continue to pursue, their claims against PG&E Corporation and the Utility on or after the Effective Date, including but not limited to, claims arising from or relating to:

the purported de-energization securities class action filed in October 2019 and amended to add PG&E Corporation in April 2020. For more information on the filing, see Note 10 below;

the purported PSPS class action filed in December 2019 and seeking up to $2.5 billion in special and general damages, punitive and exemplary damages and injunctive relief to require the Utility to properly maintain and inspect its power grid, was dismissed on April 3, 2020, and subsequently appealed on April 6, 2020. For more information on the filing, see Note 11 below; and

indemnification or contributing claims, including with respect to the 2018 Camp fire, the 2017 Northern California wildfires, and the 2015 Butte fire.

In addition, claims continue to be pursued against PG&E Corporation and the Utility and certain of their respective current and former directors and officers as well as certain underwriters, in connection with three purported securities class actions, as further described in Note 10 under the heading “Securities Class Action Litigation.”

Various electricity suppliers filed claims in the Utility’s 2001 prior proceeding filed under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code seeking payment for energy supplied to the Utility’s customers between May 2000 and June 2001. While the FERC and judicial proceedings are pending, the Utility pursued settlements with electricity suppliers and entered into a number of settlement agreements with various electricity suppliers to resolve some of these disputed claims and to resolve the Utility’s refund claims against these electricity suppliers. Under these settlement agreements, amounts payable by the parties, in some instances, would be subject to adjustment based on the outcome of the various refund offset and interest issues being considered by the FERC. Generally, any net refunds, claim offsets, or other credits that the Utility receives from electricity suppliers either through settlement or through the conclusion of the various FERC and judicial proceedings are refunded to customers through rates in future periods. Pursuant to the Plan, on and after the Effective Date, the holders of such claims are entitled to pursue their claims against the Reorganized Utility as if the Chapter 11 Cases had not been commenced.

31


Reorganization Items, Net

Reorganization items, net, represent amounts incurred after the Petition Date as a direct result of the Chapter 11 Cases and are comprised of professional fees and financing costs, net of interest income and other. Cash paid for reorganization items, net was $96 million and $300 million for PG&E Corporation and the Utility, respectively, during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 as compared to $13 million and $145 million for PG&E Corporation and the Utility, respectively, during the same period in 2019. Cash paid for reorganization items, net was $6 million and $93 million for PG&E Corporation and the Utility, respectively, during the three months ended September 30, 2020 as compared to cash received in the amount of $2 million and cash paid in the amount of $67 million for PG&E Corporation and the Utility, respectively, during the same period in 2019. Of the $300 million in cash paid for the Utility’s reorganization items, during the nine months ended September 30, 2020, $35 million in facility fees related to the Debt Commitment Letters were recorded to a regulatory asset as they were deemed probable of recovery. Reorganization items, net for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 include the following:
