Sempra Energy Reports Higher First-Quarter 2019 Earnings

SAN DIEGO, May 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE) today reported first-quarter 2019 earnings of $441 million, or $1.59 per diluted share, up from first-quarter 2018 earnings of $347 million, or $1.33 per diluted share. On an adjusted basis, the company's first-quarter 2019 earnings increased to $534 million, or $1.92 per diluted share, from $372 million, or $1.43 per diluted share, in the first quarter 2018.

"Our earnings performance this quarter reflects our strategic focus, improved capital investments and commitment to a high-performance culture, as we work to achieve our mission to be North America's premier energy infrastructure company," said Jeffrey W. Martin, chairman and CEO of Sempra Energy. "Sempra Energy is well positioned at the intersection of two key trends – the transition toward cleaner energy, and the U.S.' rise as a global energy leader – and this creates a unique opportunity for our company's continued growth."

These financial results reflect certain significant items, as described on an after-tax basis in the following table of GAAP earnings reconciled to adjusted earnings for the first quarter of 2018 and 2019.

1)

$103 million increase to adjusted earnings due to change in indefinite reinvestment assertion of basis differences in discontinued operations, partially offset by $10 million reduction in tax valuation allowance against certain NOL carryforwards at Parent & Other.

2)

Sempra Energy Adjusted Earnings, Adjusted EPS and Adjusted Diluted Weighted-Average Shares Outstanding are non-GAAP financial measures. See Table A for information regarding non-GAAP financial measures and descriptions of adjustments above.

3)

Adjusted diluted weighted-average shares outstanding include 13,951 shares of Series A mandatory convertible preferred stock for the three months ended March 31, 2019 due to their dilutive effect.

4)

Preferred dividends of $26 million have been added back to adjusted earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2019 because of the dilutive effect of Series A mandatory convertible preferred stock.

OPERATING HIGHLIGHTS

In April, Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC (Oncor) and Sempra Energy reached a settlement agreement with several Texas stakeholders for Oncor's proposed acquisition of InfraREIT, Inc. and Sempra Energy's proposed acquisition of 50% of Sharyland Utilities, LP.

The last regulatory step in the transaction is approval of a final order from the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT). If approved by the PUCT, Oncor and Sempra Energy expect to close the transaction in mid-2019.

San Diego Gas & Electric Company and Southern California Gas Co. are awaiting a proposed decision for their 2019 General Rate Case from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), which is expected in mid-2019. Additionally, the California utilities filed their application in the Cost-of-Capital proceeding with the CPUC on April 22.

Sempra Energy also announced in April that Cameron LNG has begun pipeline feed gas flow to the first liquefaction train, which is the final commissioning step for Train 1 of the liquefaction-export facility in Hackberry, La. Production of LNG at the facility is expected to occur this quarter.

In March, Sempra Energy also increased its projected share of full run-rate earnings from the first three trains at Cameron LNG to be between $400 million and $450 million annually, up from the previous projection of $365 million to $425 million. Sempra Energy expects to begin recognizing earnings from Train 1 in mid-2019.

Additionally, IEnova recently announced two new capacity contracts with a global integrated oil company. This included an additional contract for 740,000 barrels of storage at the previously announced Manzanillo marine terminal development project, as well as the storage of up to 290,000 barrels of capacity at a new storage terminal project in Guadalajara. The Guadalajara terminal is IEnova's seventh terminal project and one of 12 projects currently in development or under construction.

The sales process of Sempra Energy's equity interests in its South American businesses, including its 83.6% stake in Luz del Sur S.A.A. in Peru and 100% stake in Chilquinta Energía S.A. in Chile, also remains on track. First-round bids are expected in June.

2019 EARNINGS GUIDANCE

Sempra Energy today affirmed its 2019 adjusted earnings-per-share guidance range of $5.70 to $6.30 and 2020 earnings-per-share guidance range of $6.70 to $7.50. The earnings-per-share guidance range for 2020 does not include impacts from the planned sale of Sempra Energy's South American businesses.  

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Non-GAAP financial measures for Sempra Energy include first-quarter 2018 and 2019 adjusted earnings, adjusted diluted weighted-average shares outstanding, adjusted earnings per share and 2019 adjusted earnings-per-share guidance. See Table A for additional information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures.

(iii) obtaining the consent of partners; (iv) counterparties' ability to fulfill contractual commitments; (v) winning competitively bid infrastructure projects; (vi) disruption caused by the announcement of contemplated acquisitions and/or divestitures or internal structural changes; (vii) the ability to complete contemplated acquisitions and/or divestitures; and (viii) the ability to realize anticipated benefits from any of these efforts once completed; the resolution of civil and criminal litigation and regulatory investigations and proceedings; actions by credit rating agencies to downgrade our credit ratings or those of our subsidiaries or to place those ratings on negative outlook and our ability to borrow at favorable interest rates; deviations from regulatory precedent or practice that result in a reallocation of benefits or burdens among shareholders and ratepayers; denial of approvals of proposed settlements; delays in, or denial of, regulatory agency authorizations to recover costs in rates from customers or regulatory agency approval for projects required to enhance safety and reliability;

cybersecurity threats to the energy grid, storage and pipeline infrastructure, the information and systems used to operate our businesses and the confidentiality of our proprietary information and the personal information of our customers and employees; actions of activist shareholders, which could impact the market price of our securities and disrupt our operations as a result of, among other things, requiring significant time by management and our board of directors; changes in capital markets, energy markets and economic conditions, including the availability of credit; and volatility in currency exchange, interest and inflation rates and commodity prices and our ability to effectively hedge the risk of such volatility; the impact of federal or state tax reform and our ability to mitigate adverse impacts; changes in foreign and domestic trade policies and laws, including border tariffs and revisions to or replacement of international trade agreements, such as the North American Free Trade Agreement or the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (subject to congressional approval), that may increase our costs or impair our ability to resolve trade disputes; expropriation of assets by foreign governments and title and other property disputes; the impact at San Diego Gas & Electric Company on competitive customer rates and reliability of electric transmission and distribution systems due to the growth in distributed and local power generation and from possible departing retail load resulting from customers transferring to Direct Access and Community Choice Aggregation or other forms of distributed and local power generation and the potential risk of nonrecovery for stranded assets and contractual obligations; Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC's (Oncor) ability to eliminate or reduce its quarterly dividends due to regulatory capital requirements and other regulatory and governance commitments, including the determination by a majority of Oncor's independent directors or a minority member director to retain such amounts to meet future requirements; and other uncertainties, some of which may be difficult to predict and are beyond our control.

These risks and uncertainties are further discussed in the reports that Sempra Energy has filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

RECONCILIATION OF SEMPRA ENERGY ADJUSTED EARNINGS TO SEMPRA ENERGY GAAP EARNINGS (Unaudited)

Sempra Energy Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Earnings Per Common Share (Adjusted EPS) exclude items in 2019 and 2018 as follows:

Three months ended March 31, 2019:
Associated with holding the South American businesses for sale:

  • $(103) million income tax expense from outside basis differences in our South American businesses primarily related to the change in our indefinite reinvestment assertion from our decision in January 2019 to hold these businesses for sale
  • $10 million income tax benefit from a reduction in a valuation allowance against certain net operating loss (NOL) carryforwards as a result of our decision to sell our South American businesses

Three months ended March 31, 2018:

  • $(25) million income tax expense to adjust the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) provisional amounts recorded in 2017

Sempra Energy Adjusted Earnings, Weighted-Average Shares Outstanding – Adjusted and Adjusted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures (GAAP represents accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America). Because of the significance and/or nature of the excluded items, management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide a meaningful comparison of the performance of Sempra Energy's business operations from 2019 to 2018 and to future periods. Non-GAAP financial measures are supplementary information that should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The table below reconciles for historical periods these non-GAAP financial measures to Sempra Energy GAAP Earnings, Weighted-Average Shares Outstanding – GAAP and GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Common Share (GAAP EPS), which we consider to be the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

In the three months ended March 31, 2019, the assumed conversion of the series A preferred stock and the series B preferred stock are antidilutive for GAAP earnings, however, the series A preferred stock is dilutive for the higher Adjusted Earnings. As such, the series A preferred stock dividends of $26 million have been added back to the numerator and the dilutive effect of the series A preferred stock shares of 13,951 has been added to the denominator when calculating Adjusted EPS.

SEMPRA ENERGY
Table A (Continued)

SEMPRA ENERGY 2019 ADJUSTED EPS GUIDANCE RANGE (Unaudited)

Sempra Energy 2019 Adjusted EPS Guidance Range of $5.70 to $6.30 excludes:

  • $103 million income tax expense recorded in the first quarter of 2019 from outside basis differences in our South American businesses primarily related to the change in our indefinite reinvestment assertion from our decision in January 2019 to hold these businesses for sale
  • $10 million income tax benefit from a reduction in a valuation allowance against certain NOL carryforwards as a result of our decision to sell our South American businesses
  • an approximate $35 million after-tax(1) (approximately $50 million pretax) gain, plus working capital and other customary adjustments, related to our sale of the remaining U.S. renewables assets and investments to American Electric Power, which closed in April 2019
  • any potential gain from the planned sale of our South American businesses

Sempra Energy 2019 Adjusted EPS Guidance is a non-GAAP financial measure. Because of the significance and nature of the excluded items, management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides better clarity into the ongoing results of the business and the comparability of such results to prior and future periods. Sempra Energy 2019 Adjusted EPS Guidance should not be considered an alternative to GAAP EPS Guidance. Non-GAAP financial measures are supplementary information that should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Because the sale process for the planned divestiture of our South American businesses initiated in January 2019 is ongoing, the terms and structure of any potential sale transaction or transactions are unknown, including the terms that would impact the final income tax expense resulting from the expected change in our assertion regarding indefinite reinvestment of foreign undistributed earnings, including timing and amounts of repatriation of such earnings. As a result, 2019 GAAP EPS Guidance, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, is inestimable.

Income taxes on estimated gain were calculated based on applicable statutory tax rates.

Includes intercompany sales.



(2) 

Includes 100 percent of the electric deliveries and customer meters of Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC (Oncor), in which we hold an 80.25-percent interest through our March 2018 acquisition of our equity method investment in Oncor Electric Delivery Holdings Company LLC (Oncor Holdings). Total deliveries for the three months ended March 31, 2018 only include volumes from the March 9, 2018 acquisition date.



(3) 

Includes power generated and sold at the TdM natural gas-fired power plant and the Ventika wind power generation facilities. Also includes 50 percent of total power generated and sold at the Energía Sierra Juárez wind power generation facility, in which Sempra Energy has a 50-percent ownership interest. Energía Sierra Juárez is not consolidated within Sempra Energy, and the related investment is accounted for under the equity method.



(4)  

We include 50 percent of total power generated and sold related to U.S. solar and wind projects in which Sempra Energy has a 50-percent ownership. These subsidiaries are not consolidated within Sempra Energy, and the related investments are accounted for under the equity method. On June 25, 2018, our board of directors approved a plan to sell all U.S. wind and solar assets and investments, resulting in the sale of all Sempra Renewables' solar and wind projects in separate transactions that closed in December 2018 and April 2019, respectively.

(1) 

Management believes Income (Loss) Before Interest and Tax is a useful measurement of our segments' performance because it can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of our operations exclusive of interest and income tax, neither of which is directly relevant to the efficiency of those operations.



(2) 

Amounts have been retrospectively adjusted for discontinued operations.
