  • Non-GAAP core earnings were $0.55 per diluted share for the first half of 2022, compared to earnings of $0.50 per diluted share for the same period in 2021.
  • 2022 EPS guidance for GAAP earnings was adjusted to a range of $0.74 to $1.02 per diluted share and non-GAAP core earnings was reaffirmed in the range of $1.07 to $1.13 per diluted share.

OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PG&E Corporation (NYSE: PCG) recorded second-quarter 2022 income available for common shareholders of $356 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, as reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). This compares with income available for common shareholders of $397 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2021.

GAAP results include non-core items that management does not consider representative of ongoing earnings, which totaled $180 million after tax, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the quarter. These results were primarily driven by costs related to 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), wildfire-related costs, the amortization of Wildfire Fund contributions under Assembly Bill (AB) 1054, strategic repositioning costs, and investigation remedies, partially offset by rate neutral (Senate Bill (SB) 901) securitization and Fire Victim Trust tax benefits.

“We are on track to deliver on our 2022 commitments,” said Patti Poppe, CEO of PG&E Corporation. “We are reducing risk and making the right investments for the future. Our daily focus on delivering predictable results and keeping costs down reflects our Triple Bottom Line of serving people, the planet, and California’s prosperity.”

Non-GAAP Core Earnings

PG&E Corporation’s non-GAAP core earnings, which exclude non-core items, were $536 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2022, compared with $575 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, during the same period in 2021.

The decrease in quarter-over-quarter non-GAAP core earnings per diluted share was primarily driven by regulatory items, taxes and other miscellaneous items, partially offset by the growth in rate base earnings and cost reductions.

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 available for common shareholders.

2022 Guidance

PG&E Corporation is adjusting 2022 GAAP earnings guidance in the range of $0.74 to $1.02 per diluted share, which includes non-core items. PG&E Corporation is adjusting 2022 non-core items guidance in the range of $230 million to $720 million after tax, reflecting costs related to the amortization of Wildfire Fund contributions under AB 1054, PG&E Corporation’s and the Utility’s reorganization cases under Chapter 11, wildfire-related costs, investigation remedies, and strategic repositioning costs, partially offset by rate neutral (SB 901) securitization and Fire Victim Trust tax benefits and prior period net regulatory impact.

On a non-GAAP basis, the guidance range for projected 2022 non-GAAP core earnings is reaffirmed at $1.07 to $1.13 per diluted share. Factors driving non-GAAP core earnings include unrecoverable interest expense of $330 million to $370 million after tax and other earnings factors, including allowance for funds used during construction equity, incentive revenues, tax benefits, and cost savings, net of below-the-line costs.

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

“Fire Victim Trust tax benefit net of securitization" includes the impact of rate neutral (SB 901) securitization and tax benefits related to the Fire Victim Trust. Impacts of the rate neutral (SB 901) securitization include the establishment of the SB 901 securitization regulatory asset and the SB 901 regulatory liability associated with revenue credits funded by Net Operating Loss monetization. Fire Victim Trust tax benefits include tax benefits recognized upon the sale of shares of PG&E Corporation common stock by the Fire Victim Trust, which PG&E Corporation and the Utility have elected to treat as a grantor trust. The low case includes tax benefits for the 100,000,000 shares of PG&E Corporation common stock sold in the aggregate by the Fire Victim Trust as of July 21, 2022, and the high case reflects an assumption that the Fire Victim Trust sells all 477,743,590 shares in 2022. The total offsetting tax benefit for the low and high non-core guidance range is $355 million and $2.1 billion, respectively.

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 the table included in "Reconciliation of PG&E Corporation’s Consolidated Earnings Available for Common Shareholders in Accordance with GAAP to Non-GAAP Core Earnings First Quarter, 2022 vs. 2021". “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 (taken on a basic basis in the event of a GAAP loss and a diluted basis in the event of a GAAP gain). 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 2023-2026, 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.
