FirstEnergy Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year
2021 Financial Results
Updates and Affirms Full-Year 2022 GAAP and Operating Guidance
Provides Guidance for First Quarter

Akron, Ohio – FirstEnergy Corp. (NYSE: FE) today reported full-year 2021 GAAP earnings of $1.3 billion, or $2.35 per basic and diluted share of common stock, on revenue of $11.1 billion. In 2020, the company reported GAAP earnings of $1.1 billion, or $1.99 per basic and diluted share of common stock, on revenue of $10.8 billion. Results include the impact of special items listed below.

Operating (non-GAAP) earnings* were $2.60 per share in 2021, compared to $2.39 per share in 2020. This approximately 9% increase reflects continued earnings growth from FirstEnergy’s customer-focused capital investment strategy in its regulated businesses.

“Throughout 2021, our board, leadership team and employees worked together to dramatically reshape FirstEnergy. We’ve taken important steps to optimize operations, deliver a superior customer experience, strengthen our financial position and – most importantly – instill trust and confidence in our company,” said Steven E. Strah, FirstEnergy’s president and chief executive officer. “As we continue building on this progress, I’m confident we will be a premier company, centered on our core values, that delivers an impeccable customer experience and is a leader in the energy transition.”


FirstEnergy updated its full year 2022 GAAP earnings guidance range to $1,375 million to $1,490 million, or $2.41 to $2.61 per share, and affirmed its full-year 2022 operating (non-GAAP) earnings guidance range of $1,315 million to $1,430 million, or $2.30 to $2.50 per share based on 571 million shares outstanding, which reflects the comprehensive settlement in Ohio to refund over $300 million to customers. For the first quarter of 2022, FirstEnergy expects GAAP earnings in the range of $285 million to $345 million, or $0.50 to $0.60 per share, and operating (non-GAAP) earnings of $0.55 to $0.65 per share.




“I am very excited about our company’s future,” Strah said. “Our strategic plan reflects sustainable investments in our regulated businesses to strengthen the grid and lead the energy transition. This includes a capital investment program of approximately $3.3 billion in 2022 – a 15% increase compared to 2021 – with approximately 70% of those investments recovered through formula rates. At the same time, our employee-led FE Forward program is transforming our company into an innovative and forward-thinking utility by modernizing the way we work and the value we provide to customers.”

Fourth Quarter Results

FirstEnergy reported GAAP earnings of $427 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, or $0.77 per basic and diluted share of common stock, on revenue of $2.7 billion. In the fourth quarter of 2020, FirstEnergy reported GAAP earnings of $242 million, or $0.45 per basic and diluted share of common stock, on revenue of $2.5 billion. Results include the impact of special items shown below.

Operating (non-GAAP) earnings for the fourth quarter of 2021 were $0.51 per share, compared to $0.32 per share in the fourth quarter of 2020.

In FirstEnergy’s Regulated Distribution business, fourth quarter 2021 operating results increased due to higher revenues from the implementation of new base rates, capital investment programs, as well as the absence of the charge recognized in the fourth quarter of 2020 associated with forgoing collection of lost distribution revenues. This was partially offset by lower residential demand and higher operating expenses associated with strategic investments to enhance reliability.

Total distribution deliveries for the fourth quarter of 2021 increased 1.1% compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. Residential sales decreased 1.4%, as customers spent less time at home compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. Commercial deliveries increased 1.2%, while sales to industrial customers increased 3.5%, reflecting a gradual recovery from the pandemic and recessionary conditions.

In the Regulated Transmission business, fourth quarter 2021 operating earnings decreased as earnings from the company’s Energizing the Future initiative were offset by higher net financing costs and other charges.

In the Corporate/Other segment, fourth quarter 2021 operating results improved, reflecting lower corporate support expenses and higher discrete income tax benefits compared to the fourth quarter of 2020.

Full-Year 2021 Segment Results

In the Distribution business, operating earnings increased for the full year of 2021 compared to 2020, primarily due to higher customer demand, revenues from the implementation of new base rates



and capital investments programs, and lower operating expenses. These were offset by the absence of decoupling revenues in 2021 and higher interest expense.

Total distribution deliveries in 2021 increased 2.4% compared to 2020, primarily reflecting higher weather-related usage as well as economic recovery in the commercial and industrial sector. Residential sales increased 1.2%, while commercial and industrial deliveries increased by 2.3% and 3.8% respectively. When adjusted for the impact of weather, total deliveries increased by 1.5% due to higher demand by commercial and industrial customers, partially offset by a slight decrease in usage by residential customers.

In the Regulated Transmission business, full-year 2021 operating earnings benefited from continued rate base growth, but this was offset by higher interest expense, prior-year formula rate true-ups and other charges.

In the Corporate/Other segment, 2021 operating results improved compared to 2020 primarily due to lower corporate support expenses and higher discrete income tax benefits associated with claimed federal tax credits and resolution of certain federal tax matters, partially offset by higher interest expense.

The current and deferred income tax effect, which ranges from 21% to 29% in all periods, was calculated by applying the subsidiaries' statutory tax rate to the pre-tax amount if deductible/taxable.

Non-GAAP financial measures
* Operating earnings (loss) excludes “special items” as described below, and is a non-GAAP financial measure. Special items represent charges incurred or benefits realized that management believes are not indicative of, or may obscure trends useful in evaluating the Company’s ongoing core activities and results of operations or otherwise warrant separate classification. Special items are not necessarily non-recurring. Management uses Operating earnings (loss) and Operating earnings (loss) per share to evaluate the Company’s performance and manage its operations and frequently references these non-GAAP financial measures in its decision making, using them to facilitate historical and ongoing performance comparisons. Additionally, management uses Operating earnings (loss) per share by segment to further evaluate the Company's performance by segment and references this non-GAAP financial measure in its decision making. Basic (GAAP) EPS and Operating EPS and Basic (GAAP) EPS and Operating EPS for each segment are calculated by dividing Operating earnings (loss), which excludes



special items as discussed above, for the periods presented by 542 million shares for full year 2020, 543 million shares for fourth quarter of 2020, 545 million shares for full year 2021, 550 million shares for the fourth quarter of 2021, and 571 million shares for the first quarter and full year 2022. Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures of Operating earnings (loss) and Operating earnings (loss) per share and Operating earnings (loss) per share by segment provide consistent and comparable measures of performance of its businesses on an ongoing basis. Management also believes that such measures are useful to shareholders and other interested parties to understand performance trends and evaluate the Company against its peer group by presenting period-over-period operating results without the effect of certain charges or benefits that may not be consistent or comparable across periods or across the Company’s peer group. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures are intended to complement, and are not considered as alternatives to, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Also, the non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other entities. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, FirstEnergy has provided, where possible without unreasonable effort, quantitative reconciliations within this presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition

On February 10, 2022, FirstEnergy Corp. (FirstEnergy or Company) issued two public documents which, among other things: provide results for the three months and year-ended December 31, 2021, and provide a GAAP forecast and operating (non-GAAP) earnings guidance for both the full-year and first quarter of 2022. FirstEnergy’s Press Release and 4Q 2021 Strategic and Financial Highlights, which are attached as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, respectively, hereto and incorporated herein by reference, contain non-GAAP financial measures. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G and Item 10(e)(i) of Regulation S-K, FirstEnergy has provided quantitative reconciliations within the Press Release and 4Q 2021 Strategic and Financial Highlights of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). The information set forth in and incorporated into this Item 2.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is being furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 of Form 8-K and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any of the Company’s filings under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, whether made before or after the date hereof and regardless of any general incorporation language in such filings, except to the extent expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

The attached Press Release and 4Q 2021 Strategic and Financial Highlights contain references to non-GAAP financial measures including, among others, Operating earnings (loss), Operating earnings (loss) per share (EPS), and Operating earnings (loss) per share on a segment basis.. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Operating earnings (loss), Operating earnings (loss) per share, and Operating earnings (loss) per share by segment are not calculated in accordance with GAAP to the extent they exclude the impact of “special items.” Special items represent charges incurred or benefits realized that management believes are not indicative of, or may obscure trends useful in evaluating the Company’s ongoing core activities and results of operations or otherwise warrant separate classification. Special items are not necessarily non-recurring. The Company’s management cannot estimate on a forward-looking basis the impact of these items in the context of long-term annual Operating EPS growth rate projections because these items, which could be significant, are difficult to predict and may be highly variable. Consequently, the Company is unable to reconcile long-term annual Operating EPS growth projections to a GAAP measure without unreasonable effort. Basic (GAAP) EPS and Operating EPS and Basic (GAAP) EPS and Operating EPS for each segment are calculated by dividing Operating earnings (loss), which excludes special items as discussed above, for the periods presented by 542 million shares for full year 2020, 543 million shares for fourth quarter of 2020, 545 million shares for full year 2021, 550 million shares for the fourth quarter of 2021, and 571 million shares for the first quarter and full year 2022. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures such as Operating earnings (loss), and Operating earnings (loss) per share, to evaluate the Company’s performance and manage its operations and frequently references these non-GAAP financial measures in its decision-making, using them to facilitate historical and ongoing performance comparisons. Additionally, management uses Operating earnings (loss) per share by segment to further evaluate FirstEnergy’s performance by segment and references this non-GAAP financial measure in its decision-making. Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures of Operating earnings (loss), Operating earnings (loss) per share, and Operating earnings (loss) per share by segmentprovide consistent and comparable measures of performance of its businesses on an ongoing basis. Management also believes that such measures are useful to shareholders and other interested parties to understand performance trends and evaluate the Company against its peer group by presenting period-over-period operating results without the effect of certain charges or benefits that may not be consistent or comparable across periods or across the Company’s peer group. All of these non-GAAP financial measures are intended to complement, and are not considered as alternatives to, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Also, the non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other entities.
