U.S. Utility Growth

Over the next five years, Sempra continues to see robust opportunities to invest over $33 billion in its California and Texas utilities to improve safety, bolster reliability and support the delivery of cleaner sources of energy. Together with expected capital expenditures at Sempra Infrastructure, the company is forecasting a company-record five-year capital plan of approximately $36 billion.

These utility investments support strong projected rate base growth. Over the past four years, Sempra has grown its U.S. utility rate base from $14 billion to $41 billion and forecasts rate base to further increase to $62 billion by 2026.

Common Stock Dividend Increased for 12th Consecutive Year

Sempra's board of directors declared a $1.145 per share quarterly dividend on the company's common stock, which is payable April 15, 2022, to common stock shareholders of record as of March 25, 2022. The declared quarterly dividend represents an increase of the company's common stock dividend to $4.58 per share, on an annualized basis, from $4.40 per share in 2021. This marks the 12th consecutive year Sempra has raised its dividend and, coupled with $1 billion of share repurchases since July 2020, highlights the company's long track record of returning value to shareholders. The foregoing includes $500 million of share repurchases that have been completed since November 2021. There is remaining board authorization for $1.5 billion to support share repurchases in the future.

Additionally, Sempra's board of directors declared a semi-annual dividend of $24.375 per share on the company's 4.875% Fixed-Rate Reset Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series C. The preferred stock dividends will be payable April 15, 2022, to preferred stock shareholders of record at the close of business on April 1, 2022.

Sempra California Prioritizes Safety and Reliability

Sempra's California utilities, San Diego Gas & Electric Co. (SDG&E) and Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas), are well positioned to support California's ambitious clean energy goals. In 2021, the utilities innovated to better serve customers, improved operational safety and reliability, and supported the modernization of their energy networks with a focus on climate resiliency.

To help strengthen grid reliability during periods of high customer demand and extreme weather conditions, SDG&E has been increasing its diverse portfolio of energy storage solutions, including mobile batteries, flow batteries and microgrids. Recently, SDG&E completed a zero-emissions microgrid pilot project using a vanadium redox flow battery – the first utility-scale battery of its kind to be connected to the California Independent System Operator market. In December 2021, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) authorized SDG&E to add 40 megawatts (MW) of energy storage as part of new microgrid projects. Additionally, SDG&E was authorized earlier this month to build three new energy storage facilities to further enhance the region's energy resilience. These three projects, expected to total 161 MW, would be able to provide enough capacity to meet the energy needs of up to 100,000 homes for up to four hours.

Yesterday, the CPUC took an important step to advance clean fuels in California by establishing a renewable gas procurement standard, reaffirming the role of renewable gas and providing a collective target for California's investor-owned gas utilities of 17.6 billion cubic feet (Bcf) by 2025 and approximately 72.8 Bcf (12.2% of 2020 core customer demand) by 2030. SoCalGas is continuing to progress toward its previously announced goal of 20% renewable natural gas (RNG) deliveries to its core customers by 2030, delivering more than 4% RNG to core customers in 2021.

In support of California's clean energy goals, SoCalGas recently announced a proposal to develop what would be the nation's largest green hydrogen energy infrastructure system, the Angeles Link. As contemplated, the Angeles Link would support the integration of more renewable electricity resources and deliver green hydrogen to the Los Angeles region in an amount equivalent to up to 25% of the natural gas SoCalGas delivers today and has the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from electric generation, industrial processes, heavy-duty trucking and other hard-to-electrify sectors in Southern California.  

Sempra Texas Continues to Experience Strong Growth

In 2021, Oncor Electric Delivery Company (Oncor) announced its five-year capital plan for 2022-2026 of $15 billion. This robust capital plan is designed to support the rapid economic growth in Texas as well as improve safety and reliability across the company's entire electrical network. High demand for electrification in Texas drove a company record of approximately 400 active transmission point of interconnection requests as of December 31, 2021, representing a nearly 40% year-over-year increase.

Oncor maintained strong operational momentum in 2021, constructing new projects to support growth across the state of Texas and reliability for the ERCOT market. In West Texas, Oncor completed Phase 1 and Phase 2 of its 138 kilovolt and 345 kilovolt transmission infrastructure projects, which are designed to strengthen the transmission infrastructure and improve load-serving capabilities in West Texas.

Sempra Infrastructure Advances Strategic Initiatives

Sempra Infrastructure was formed in 2021 through the consolidation of Sempra's North American non-utility assets under a single platform intended to create scale and portfolio synergies through the investment in critical energy infrastructure. The company is organized around three core business groups: LNG and net-zero solutions, energy networks, and clean power. Sempra Infrastructure expects to finance its growth through internally generated cash flows and a strong balance sheet supported by investment grade ratings.

In 2021, Sempra executed a series of transactions, including the completion of its previously announced sale of a 20% non-controlling interest in Sempra Infrastructure Partners to KKR. Following the close of the transaction, Sempra entered into a definitive agreement to sell another 10% non-controlling interest in Sempra Infrastructure Partners to a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA). Total expected proceeds for both transactions are approximately $5 billion. In combination, proceeds from the 30% sale of Sempra Infrastructure Partners highlight the value of this platform and allow Sempra to recycle capital back into its California and Texas utilities.

Concurrently in 2021, Sempra Infrastructure continued to focus on operational excellence throughout its portfolio, including the development of two world-class LNG projects, Cameron LNG Phase 2 and Vista Pacífico LNG, which have over 10 Mtpa of combined projected capacity for customers in both the Atlantic and Pacific Basins. Additionally, in the fourth quarter, Cameron LNG Phase 1 reached facility-record LNG production levels. Sempra Infrastructure also advanced major construction of ECA LNG Phase 1, an export facility in Baja California, Mexico. ECA LNG Phase 1 is on time and on budget with first LNG production expected at the end of 2024. Sempra Infrastructure also announced the commencement of operations at Phase 2 of the Energía Sierra Juárez wind farm in Tecate, Baja California, which now provides a total of 263 MW of zero-carbon electricity through the company's cross-border power transmission line to supply the California electricity market.

Sustainable Value Creation

Sempra is advancing the energy transition through investments in decarbonization, diversification and digitalization – three key capabilities to help support a net-zero future.

"The energy needs of customers are changing," said Martin. "That is why we have been intentional about updating our portfolio over the last several years to focus on the electrification of consumer markets, the needed expansion of energy networks and the global shift to cleaner power, all of which is generating significant growth across our utility and infrastructure businesses."

Sempra aims to have net-zero emissions by 2050. In 2021, Sempra published a Sustainable Financing Framework, outlining its criteria for financing projects aligned with its environment, social and governance strategy and objectives.

In combination, the Sempra family of companies and Sempra Foundation invested nearly $50 million in communities in 2021, supporting diverse and underserved communities and generating economic, environmental and social benefits for over half a million people through nearly 4,000 nonprofit organizations.

Earnings Guidance

Sempra is reaffirming its full-year 2022 earnings per common share (EPS) guidance range of $8.10 to $8.70 and announcing its full-year 2023 EPS guidance range of $8.60 to $9.20. Starting from the midpoint of the 2022 EPS guidance range, Sempra expects to grow long-term EPS at a compound annual growth rate of approximately 6% to 8% through 2026.

"2021 was another exciting year of growth for our company and provides further validation of our focused T&D strategy with an emphasis on our utility platforms," said Trevor Mihalik, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Sempra. "Our track record of exceeding our adjusted EPS guidance four of the past five years, combined with our record $36 billion five-year capital plan, supports our positive view of the earnings power of the business going forward."

Sempra Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures (GAAP represents generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America). These non-GAAP financial measures exclude significant items that are generally not related to our ongoing business activities and/or are infrequent in nature. These non-GAAP financial measures also exclude the impact from foreign currency and inflation effects and associated undesignated derivatives and unrealized gains and losses on commodity derivatives, which we expect to occur in future periods, and which can vary significantly from one period to the next. Exclusion of these items is useful to management and investors because it provides a meaningful comparison of the performance of Sempra'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 GAAP Earnings and GAAP EPS, which we consider to be the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

(1)

Except for adjustments that are solely income tax, income taxes on pretax amounts were primarily calculated based on applicable statutory tax rates. We did not record an income tax expense for the equity earnings or an income tax benefit for the equity losses from our investment in RBS Sempra Commodities LLP because, even though a portion of the liabilities may be deductible under United Kingdom tax law, it is not probable that the deduction will reduce United Kingdom taxes.

(2)

Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted EPS have been updated to reflect the impact from foreign currency and inflation and associated undesignated derivatives and net unrealized losses (gains) on commodity derivatives for the year ended December 31, 2020.

(3)

In the year ended December 31, 2020, because the assumed conversion of the series A preferred stock is dilutive for Adjusted Earnings, 13,417 series A preferred stock shares are added back to the denominator used to calculate Adjusted EPS.

RECONCILIATION OF SEMPRA 2021 ADJUSTED EPS GUIDANCE RANGE TO SEMPRA 2021 GAAP EPS GUIDANCE RANGE (Unaudited)

Sempra 2021 Adjusted EPS Guidance Range of $7.75 to $8.35 excludes items (after the effects of income taxes and, if applicable, NCI) as follows:

  • $(1,148) million from impacts associated with Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility litigation at SoCalGas
  • $(44) million impact from foreign currency and inflation and associated undesignated derivatives
  • $(47) million net unrealized losses on commodity derivatives
  • $(30) million in charges associated with hedge termination costs and a write-off of unamortized debt issuance costs from the early redemptions of debt at Sempra Infrastructure in October 2021
  • $(92) million in charges associated with make-whole premiums and a write-off of unamortized discount and debt issuance costs from the early redemptions of debt at Parent and other in December 2021
  • $(72) million net income tax expense related to the utilization of a deferred income tax asset upon completing the sale of a 20% NCI in SI Partners to KKR in October 2021
  • $50 million equity earnings from investment in RBS Sempra Commodities LLP, which represents a reduction to an estimate of our obligations to settle pending VAT matters and related legal costs at our equity method investment at Parent and other

Sempra 2021 Adjusted EPS Guidance is a non-GAAP financial measure. This non-GAAP financial measure excludes significant items that are generally not related to our ongoing business activities and/or infrequent in nature. This non-GAAP financial measure also excludes the impact from foreign currency and inflation effects and associated undesignated derivatives and unrealized gains and losses on commodity derivatives, which we expect to occur in future periods, and which can vary significantly from one period to the next. Exclusion of these items is useful to management and investors because it provides a meaningful comparison of the performance of Sempra's business operations to prior and future periods. Sempra 2021 Adjusted EPS Guidance Range should not be considered an alternative to Sempra 2021 GAAP EPS Guidance Range. 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 2021 Adjusted EPS Guidance Range to Sempra 2021 GAAP EPS Guidance Range, which we consider to be the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP.
