Dominion Energy Announces First-Quarter Earnings

 

First-quarter 2020 GAAP net loss of $0.34 per share; operating earnings of $1.09 per share

 

 

Company initiates second-quarter 2020 operating earnings guidance of $0.75 to $0.85 per share

 

 

Company affirms full-year 2020 operating earnings guidance of $4.25 to $4.60 per share

 

 

RICHMOND, Va. – Dominion Energy (NYSE: D) today announced an unaudited net loss determined in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (reported earnings) for the three months ended March 31, 2020 of $270 million ($0.34 per share) compared with a net loss of $680 million ($0.86 per share) for the same period in 2019.  

 

Operating earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2020, were $931 million ($1.09 per share), compared with operating earnings of $873 million ($1.10 per share) for the same period in 2019.  The company estimates that its first-quarter 2020 operating earnings were negatively impacted by $0.09 per share due to milder than normal weather in its utility service territories.

 

The difference between GAAP and operating earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was primarily attributable to a non-cash charge related to the planned early retirement of certain coal and oil-fired generating units in Virginia, consistent with the requirements of the recently enacted Virginia Clean Economy Act, and unrealized losses on our nuclear decommissioning trust funds.  The difference between GAAP and operating earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was primarily attributable to charges related to SCANA merger commitments and the early retirement of certain cold-reserve Virginia utility generating units.

 

Operating earnings are defined as reported earnings adjusted for certain items.  Details of operating earnings as compared to prior periods, business segment results and detailed descriptions of items included in reported earnings but excluded from operating earnings can be found on Schedules 1, 2, 3 and 4 of this release.  

 

Operating earnings guidance

Dominion Energy expects second-quarter operating earnings in the range of $0.75 to $0.85 per share, compared to second-quarter 2019 operating earnings of $0.77 per share.

 

The company affirms its full-year 2020 operating earnings guidance range of $4.25 to $4.60 per share.

Important note to investors regarding operating, reported earnings

Dominion Energy uses operating earnings as the primary performance measurement of its earnings guidance and results for public communications with analysts and investors.  Dominion Energy also uses operating earnings internally for budgeting, for reporting to the Board of Directors, for the company’s incentive compensation plans and for its targeted dividend payouts and other purposes. Dominion Energy management believes operating earnings provide a more meaningful representation of the company’s fundamental earnings power.

 

In providing its operating earnings guidance, the company notes that there could be differences between expected reported earnings and estimated operating earnings for matters such as, but not limited to, acquisitions, divestitures or extreme weather events and other natural disasters.  At this time, Dominion Energy management is not able to estimate the aggregate impact of these items on future period reported earnings.

The $2.6 billion pre-tax net effect of the adjustments included in 2019 reported earnings, but excluded from operating earnings, is primarily related to the following items:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

$2.4 billion of merger and integration-related costs associated with the SCANA Combination, primarily reflecting $1 billion for refunds of amounts previously collected from retail electric customers of Dominion Energy South Carolina (DESC) for the NND Project, $427 million associated with a voluntary retirement program (which includes $112 million for employee benefit plan curtailment), and $641 million associated with litigation.

 

$783 million of charges at our regulated entities, primarily consisting of the retirement of electric generation facilities in cold reserve and certain automated meters and a purchase power contract termination.

 

$113 million benefit from the revision of certain asset retirement obligations for ash ponds and landfills at certain utility generation facilities, in connection with the enactment of Virginia legislation in March.

 

$553 million net gain related to our investments in nuclear decommissioning trust funds.
