“We once again delivered solid financial and operational results in 2018. Our 2018 temperature normalized Non-GAAP earnings per share were $2.11, 6 percent above 2017 and consistent with our long-term earnings growth goal,” said Patricia Kampling, Alliant Energy Chairman and CEO. “I am proud to report that over the last five years we have delivered a total shareholder return of 93 percent, exceeding the growth of both the S&P 500 and the EEI Utilities Index.”

Utilities and Corporate Services - Alliant Energy’s Utilities and Alliant Energy Corporate Services, Inc. (Corporate Services) operations generated $2.08 per share of GAAP EPS from continuing operations in 2018, which was $0.26 per share higher than 2017. The primary drivers of higher GAAP EPS were higher margins due to Interstate Power and Light Company’s (IPL’s) and Wisconsin Power and Light Company’s (WPL’s) increasing rate base, higher retail electric and gas sales due to temperatures in 2018, and higher allowance for funds used during construction. These items were partially offset by higher depreciation expense.

Non-utility and Parent - Alliant Energy’s Non-utility and Parent operations generated $(0.01) per share of GAAP EPS from continuing operations in 2018, which was $0.07 per share lower than 2017. The primary drivers of lower EPS were higher interest expense and benefits of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (Federal Tax Reform) in 2017. These items were partially offset by higher equity income in 2018 from the wind farm in Oklahoma due to accelerated earnings as a result of Federal Tax Reform, which is expected to reverse over time.

Earnings Adjustments - Non-GAAP EPS for 2018 excludes earnings of $0.02 per share related to Federal Tax Reform adjustments as a result of clarifying rules issued in 2018. Non-GAAP EPS for 2017 excludes the write-down of regulatory assets due to the IPL retail electric rate review settlement and the initial impacts of Federal Tax Reform. Non-GAAP adjustments, which relate to material charges or income that are not normally associated with ongoing operations, are provided as a supplement to results reported in accordance with GAAP.

Temperature Impacts to Non-GAAP EPS from Continuing Operations - The estimated net impact of temperatures on retail electric and gas sales was a $0.06 per share gain in 2018. The temperature normalized non-GAAP EPS from continuing operations for fiscal year 2018 was $2.11. The estimated impact of temperatures on retail electric and gas sales was a $0.06 per share loss in 2017. The temperature normalized non-GAAP EPS from continuing operations for fiscal year 2017 was $1.99.
