Updates Fiscal Year 2017 Guidance

Consolidated Results
WGL Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: WGL), the parent company of Washington Gas Light Company (Washington Gas) and other energy-related subsidiaries, today reported net income applicable to common stock determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP) for the three months ended March 31, 2017, of $123.1 million, or $2.39 per share, an improvement of $16.8 million, or $0.28 per share, over net income applicable to common stock of $106.3 million, or $2.11 per share, reported for the three months ended March 31, 2016. For the six months ended March 31, 2017, net income applicable to common stock was $181.0 million, or $3.52 per share, an improvement of $6.5 million, or $0.04 per share, over net income applicable to common stock of $174.5 million, or $3.48 per share for the same period of the prior fiscal year.
On a consolidated basis, WGL also uses non-GAAP operating earnings (loss) to evaluate overall financial performance, and evaluates segment financial performance based on earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) and adjusted EBIT. Operating earnings (loss) and adjusted EBIT are non-GAAP financial measures, which are not recognized in accordance with GAAP and should not be viewed as alternatives to GAAP measures of performance. Both non-GAAP operating earnings (loss) and adjusted EBIT adjust for the accounting recognition of certain transactions that are not representative of the ongoing earnings of the company. Additionally, we believe that adjusted EBIT enhances the ability to evaluate segment performance because it excludes interest and income tax expense, which are affected by corporate-wide strategies such as capital financing and tax sharing allocations. Refer to “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” attached to this news release, for a more detailed discussion of management’s use of these measures and for reconciliations to GAAP financial measures.
For the three months ended March 31, 2017, operating earnings were $96.1 million, or $1.87 per share, an increase of $6.6 million, or $0.09 per share, over operating earnings of $89.5 million, or $1.78 per share, for the same quarter of the prior fiscal year. For the six months ended March 31, 2017, operating earnings were $155.4 million, or $3.02 per share, an improvement of $6.7 million, or $0.06 per share, over operating earnings of $148.7 million, or $2.96 per share, for the same period of the prior fiscal year.
