Sempra Energy Reports Strong Third-Quarter 2019 Earnings

- Raises 2019 EPS Guidance; Issues 2020 GAAP and Affirms 2020 Adjusted EPS Guidance
- Receives Approval of California Utilities' Safety and Reliability-Based General Rate Case
- Continues to Advance LNG Development Opportunities with Multiple MOU Agreements

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Sempra Energy(NYSE: SRE) today reported third-quarter 2019 earnings of $813 million, or $2.84 per diluted share, up from $274 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, in the third quarter 2018. On an adjusted basis, the company's third-quarter 2019 earnings were $425 million, or $1.50 per diluted share, compared to $339 million, or $1.23 per diluted share, in the third quarter 2018.

"At Sempra Energy, we laid out a plan last year to increasingly focus on core markets where we can produce the best results for our stakeholders," said Jeffrey W. Martin, chairman and CEO of Sempra Energy. "With our recently announced agreements to sell our South American businesses, it reflects our ongoing commitment to simplify our strategy. Our year-to-date financial results are a product of that more focused strategy, and the hard work and dedication of all of our employees."

Sempra Energy's earnings for the first nine months of 2019 were $1.61 billion, or $5.74 per diluted share, compared with earnings of $60 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2018. Adjusted earnings for the first nine months of 2019 were $1.46 billion, or $5.23 per diluted share, compared with $1.07 billion, or $4.00 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2018.

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 third quarter and first nine months of 2019 and 2018.

Amounts have been retrospectively adjusted for discontinued operations.

2)

Includes $89 million income tax benefit due to change in indefinite reinvestment assertion of basis differences and structure of sale of discontinued operations, and $10 million to reduce a tax valuation allowance against certain net operating loss (NOL) carryforwards at Parent and Other.

3)

Sempra Energy adjusted earnings, adjusted EPS and adjusted diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding are non-GAAP financial measures. See Table A for information regarding non-GAAP financial measures and descriptions of the adjustments above.

4)

In the three months ended September 30, 2019, because the assumed conversion of the series A preferred stock is dilutive for GAAP Earnings, the numerator used to calculate GAAP EPS includes an add-back of $26 million of series A preferred stock dividends declared in that quarter. However, because the assumed conversion is antidilutive for the lower adjusted earnings, 13,238 series A preferred stock shares are not included in the denominator used to calculate adjusted EPS.

5)

In the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the total weighted-average potentially dilutive stock options and restricted stock units of 736 and common shares sold forward of 945 were not included in the denominator used to calculate GAAP EPS due to the losses from continuing operations attributable to common shares, but have been added to the denominator used to calculate Adjusted EPS.

OPERATING HIGHLIGHTS

Sempra LNG

Sempra Energy is continuing to advance its liquefied natural gas (LNG) development projects.

Sempra Energy announced in October that it has entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Mitsui & Co., Ltd. (Mitsui) reflecting the parties' preliminary agreement for Mitsui's participation in the Cameron LNG Phase 2 project, and a future expansion of the Energía Costa Azul (ECA) LNG project in Baja California, Mexico. The MOU is non-binding and contemplates the continued mutual support for the development of Cameron LNG Phase 2, including Mitsui's potential purchase of up to one-third of the available capacity of the project, as well as the potential offtake of approximately 1 million tonnes per annum of LNG and equity participation in a future expansion of ECA LNG.

In September, Sempra LNG also entered into a MOU with China Three Gorges Corporation regarding potential cooperation in supplying LNG to support demand growth in China, including the growth of natural gas power generation.

In August, the Cameron LNG liquefaction-export project in Hackberry, La., began commercial operations at Train 1 of the facility. The project, including Trains 2 and 3, is over 96% complete. Commissioning of Train 2 is underway, and the previously disclosed project timeline remains unchanged.  

California Utilities

In September, San Diego Gas & Electric and Southern California Gas Co. received a final decision in the utilities' 2019 General Rate Case. The increased revenue requirements will enable the utilities to invest in critical energy infrastructure with a focus on enhancing safety and reliability for the communities they serve.

Texas Utilities

Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC (Oncor) has increased its five-year capital plan. The increase is related to growth seen in and around Oncor's service territory. The infrastructure investments will help to facilitate renewables integration in Texas, support growth in West Texas and the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and strengthen and expand the grid in Oncor's service territory for the benefit of Oncor's customers and the communities it serves. Oncor now plans to spend approximately $11.9 billion between 2020 and 2024.

Sempra Mexico

Infraestructura Energética Nova, S.A.B. de C.V. (IEnova), Sempra Energy's Mexican subsidiary, continues to develop infrastructure that provides Mexico access to cleaner, more affordable and more reliable energy.

In August, IEnova reached constructive resolutions with the Federal Electricity Commission and the Mexican government on the Sur de Texas-Tuxpan pipeline and Guaymas-El Oro pipeline. Shortly thereafter, the Sur de Texas-Tuxpan pipeline, a joint venture with TC Energy Corporation, commenced commercial operations in September.

Announced Sale of South American Businesses

Sempra Energy recently announced two agreements that would conclude the company's planned sale of its South American businesses for combined proceeds of approximately $5.82 billion in cash, subject to adjustments and satisfaction of closing conditions. Both transactions, one to sell Sempra Energy's equity interests in its Peruvian businesses and the other to sell its equity interests in its Chilean businesses, are expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2020.

EARNINGS GUIDANCE

On a GAAP basis, the company's earnings-per-common-share (EPS) guidance range for full-year 2019 is $6.50 to $7.00. Sempra Energy today raised its 2019 adjusted EPS guidance from a range of $5.70 to $6.30 to a range of $6.00 to $6.50. The company also issued its full-year 2020 GAAP EPS guidance range of $12.78 to $14.26 and affirmed its full-year 2020 adjusted EPS guidance range of $6.70 to $7.50.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Non-GAAP financial measures include Sempra Energy's adjusted earnings and adjusted EPS for both the third quarter and first nine months of 2019 and 2018, adjusted diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding for the third quarter of 2019 and the first nine months of 2018, and 2020 and 2019 adjusted EPS guidance. See Table A for additional information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures.

risks posed by actions of third parties who control the operations of our investments; 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; expropriation of assets, the failure to honor the terms of contracts by foreign governments and state-owned entities such as the CFE, 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; changes in capital markets, energy markets and economic conditions, including the availability of credit; and volatility in foreign currency exchange, interest and inflation rates and commodity prices and our ability to effectively hedge the risk of such volatility; 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, that may increase our costs or impair our ability to resolve trade disputes; actions of activist shareholders, which could disrupt our operations by, among other things, requiring significant time by management and our board of directors; the impact of federal or state tax reform and our ability to mitigate adverse impacts; 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 Diluted Earnings Per Common Share (Adjusted EPS) exclude items (after the effects of income taxes and, if applicable, noncontrolling interests) in 2019 and 2018 as follows:

Three months ended September 30, 2019:

  • $196 million incremental revenue increases for the first six months of 2019 from the retroactive application of the final decision in the 2019 General Rate Case (GRC FD) at the California Utilities

Associated with holding the South American businesses for sale:

  • $192 million income tax benefit associated with outside basis differences in our South American businesses primarily related to a change in the anticipated structure of the sale of those businesses

Three months ended September 30, 2018:

  • $(65) million impairment of RBS Sempra Commodities LLP (RBS Sempra Commodities) equity method investment at Parent and other

Nine months ended September 30, 2019:

  • $45 million gain on the sale of certain Sempra Renewables assets

Associated with holding the South American businesses for sale:

  • $89 million income tax benefit 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 those businesses for sale and a change in the anticipated structure of the sale
  • $10 million income tax benefit to reduce a valuation allowance against certain net operating loss (NOL) carryforwards as a result of our decision to sell our South American businesses

Nine months ended September 30, 2018:

  • $(22) million impacts associated with Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility litigation at Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas)
  • $(145) million other-than-temporary impairment of certain U.S. wind equity method investments at Sempra Renewables
  • $(755) million impairment of certain non-utility natural gas storage assets at Sempra LNG
  • $(65) million impairment of RBS Sempra Commodities equity method investment
  • $(25) million income tax expense to adjust the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) provisional amounts

Sempra Energy Adjusted Earnings, Weighted-Average Common 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 to prior and 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 Common 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.

Sempra Energy 2020 Adjusted EPS Guidance Range of $6.70 to $7.50 excludes approximately $1.8 billion to $2.0 billion estimated after-tax gain on the sale of our South American businesses, net of approximately $1.2 billion of income tax expense, which was calculated primarily based on applicable statutory tax rates.

Sempra Energy 2020 Adjusted EPS Guidance is a non-GAAP financial measure.

Sempra Energy 2020 Adjusted EPS Guidance should not be considered an alternative to Sempra Energy 2020 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. The table below reconciles Sempra Energy 2020 Adjusted EPS Guidance Range to Sempra Energy 2020 GAAP EPS Guidance Range, which we consider to be the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP.
