Portland General Electric announces second quarter 2018 results

Settlement of Carty Generating Station litigation allows for full offset of incremental construction costs
Increasing guidance from $2.10-$2.25 to $2.25-$2.40 per diluted share
SP Global upgraded PGE’s issuer credit rating from BBB to BBB+

PORTLAND, Ore. - Portland General Electric Company (NYSE: POR) today reported net income of $46 million, or 51 cents per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2018. This compares with net income of $32 million, or 36 cents per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2017.

“I’m pleased to put the Carty litigation behind us and recognize the increase in our credit ratings,” said Maria Pope, president and CEO. “In addition, we’re making progress in bringing customers new renewable resources and programs, including our renewable RFP and green tariff.”

Q2 2018 earnings compared with Q2 2017 earnings

Lower natural gas prices and reduced plant maintenance expenses drove the increase in second quarter earnings per diluted share for 2018 in comparison with second quarter of 2017. Additionally, a decrease in distribution-related expenses due to the absence of major storms in 2018 and an increase in production tax credits was partially offset by gross margin due to temperatures that were warmer than prior year as well as increased administrative expenses.
