PG&E Corporation Reports Third-Quarter 2021 Financial Results

11/01/2021
  • Recorded GAAP losses were $0.55 per share for the third quarter of 2021, compared to earnings of $0.04 per share for the same period in 2020.
  • Non-GAAP core earnings were $0.24 per share for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $0.22 per share for the same period in 2020.
  • 2021 EPS guidance adjusted for GAAP earnings to a range of $(0.12) to $0.07 and reaffirmed non-GAAP core earnings of $0.95 to $1.05 per share.

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PG&E Corporation (NYSE: PCG) recorded third-quarter 2021 losses attributable to common shareholders of $1,091 million, or $0.55 per share, as reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). This compares with income available for common shareholders of $83 million, or $0.04 per share, for the third quarter of 2020.

GAAP results include non-core items that management does not consider representative of ongoing earnings, which totaled $1,570 million after tax, or $0.79 per share, for the quarter. These results were primarily driven by costs related to the PG&E Corporation’s and Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (Utility) reorganization cases under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (Chapter 11), amortization of wildfire insurance fund contributions under Assembly Bill (AB) 1054, prior period net regulatory recoveries, investigation remedies, and 2019-2020 wildfire-related costs.

“Our leadership team is implementing the necessary systems and processes to run a high-performing utility – over both the short and long term – that will produce triple bottom-line results for people, the planet, and California’s prosperity,” said Patti Poppe, CEO of PG&E Corporation. “As part of this, we continue to deliver on our wildfire mitigation commitments while initiating bold new actions to reduce risk across our electric system, including: undergrounding power lines, calibrating the sensitivity of our automatic shutoff equipment, and executing more vegetation management.”

Non-GAAP Core Earnings

PG&E Corporation’s non-GAAP core earnings, which exclude non-core items, were $479 million, or $0.24 per share, in the third quarter of 2021, compared with $461 million, or $0.22 per share, during the same period in 2020.

The increase in quarter-over-quarter non-GAAP core earnings per share was primarily driven by the growth in rate base earnings, the change in shares, and wildfire mitigation costs above authorized, partially offset by the timing of taxes.

PG&E Corporation uses “non-GAAP core earnings,” which is a non-GAAP financial measure, in order to provide a measure that allows investors to compare the underlying financial performance of the business from one period to another, exclusive of non-core items. See the accompanying tables for a reconciliation of non-GAAP core earnings to consolidated earnings (loss) attributable to common shareholders.

2021 Guidance

PG&E Corporation is adjusting 2021 GAAP earnings guidance to a range of $(0.12) to $0.07 per share, which includes non-core items. PG&E Corporation is adjusting 2021 non-core items guidance to a range of $2.1 billion to $2.3 billion after tax, reflecting costs related to PG&E Corporation and Utility’s reorganization cases under Chapter 11, the amortization of wildfire insurance fund contributions under AB1054, investigation remedies, 2019-2020 wildfire-related costs, and prior period net regulatory recoveries, partially offset by the rate neutral securitization inception impact.

On a non-GAAP basis, the guidance range for projected 2021 core earnings is reaffirmed at $0.95 to $1.05 per share. Factors driving non-GAAP core earnings include net below the line and spend above authorized of up to $100 million after tax and unrecoverable interest expense of $300 million to $325 million after tax.

Guidance is based on various assumptions and forecasts, including those relating to authorized revenues, future expenses, capital expenditures, rate base, equity issuances, rate neutral securitization, and certain other factors.

“Prior period net regulatory recoveries" represents the recovery of capital expenditures from 2011 through 2014 above amounts adopted in the 2011 GT&S rate case, offset by the impact of adjustments related to wildfire response and mitigation regulatory matters, including the 2020 WMCE application settlement, and the April 15, 2021 FERC order denying the Utility's request for rehearing on the TO18, which rejected the Utility's direct assignment of common plant to FERC, and impacted TO revenues recorded through December 31, 2020. The total offsetting tax impact for the low and high non-core guidance range is $59 million.

“Net securitization inception impact" represents the impact upon inception of rate neutral securitization and reflects the difference between the securitization regulatory asset and the regulatory liability associated with the revenue credits funded by up-front shareholder contributions and the Net Operating Loss monetization. The high case reflects the assumption that the CPUC's final decision, issued on May 11, 2021, authorizing the securitization of $7.5 billion of wildfire-related claims that is designed to be rate neutral on average to customers, will become final and non-appealable in 2021. The low case reflects the assumption that a final legal decision is not received before the year ended December 31, 2021. The total offsetting tax impact for the high non-core guidance range is $59 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

PG&E Corporation and Pacific Gas and Electric Company

PG&E Corporation discloses historical financial results and provides guidance based on “non-GAAP core earnings” and “non-GAAP core EPS” in order to provide a measure that allows investors to compare the underlying financial performance of the business from one period to another, exclusive of non-core items.

“Non-GAAP core earnings” is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated as income available for common shareholders less non-core items. “Non-core items” include items that management does not consider representative of ongoing earnings and affect comparability of financial results between periods, consisting of the items listed in Exhibit A. “Non-GAAP core EPS,” also referred to as “non-GAAP core earnings per share,” is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated as non-GAAP core earnings divided by common shares outstanding (diluted). PG&E Corporation and the Utility use non-GAAP core earnings and non-GAAP core EPS to understand and compare operating results across reporting periods for various purposes including internal budgeting and forecasting, short- and long-term operating planning, and employee incentive compensation. PG&E Corporation and the Utility believe that non-GAAP core earnings and non-GAAP core EPS provide additional insight into the underlying trends of the business, allowing for a better comparison against historical results and expectations for future performance. With respect to our projection of non-GAAP core EPS for the years 2022-2026, we are not providing a reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP measures because we are unable to predict with reasonable certainty the reconciling items that may affect GAAP net income without unreasonable effort. The reconciling items are primarily due to the future impact of wildfire-related costs, timing of regulatory recoveries, special tax items, and investigation remedies. These reconciling items are uncertain, depend on various factors and could significantly impact, either individually or in the aggregate, the GAAP measures.

Non-GAAP core earnings and non-GAAP core EPS are not substitutes or alternatives for GAAP measures such as consolidated income available for common shareholders and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.
