CenterPoint Energy Reports First Quarter 2020 Loss of $2.44 Per Diluted Share; $0.50 Earnings Per Diluted Share From Utility Operations and $0.10 Per Diluted Share From Midstream Investments on a Guidance Basis, Excluding Impairment Charges

  • Utilities delivered solid first quarter performance in spite of less-than-favorable weather
  • Reiterate 2020 Utility EPS guidance range of $1.10 - $1.20 and 5 - 7% Utility EPS CAGR, inclusive of anticipated COVID-19 impacts

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CenterPoint Energy, Inc. (NYSE: CNP) today reported a loss available to common shareholders of $1,228 million, or loss of $2.44 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2020, compared to income available to common shareholders of $140 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019. The company recognized $1,568 million of after-tax non-cash impairment charges and losses on assets held for sale in the first quarter of 2020, which are discussed in detail below.

On a guidance basis, first quarter 2020 earnings were $0.50 per diluted share from utility operations and $0.10 per diluted share from midstream investments, excluding non-cash impairment charges. First quarter 2019 earnings, on a guidance basis, were $0.41 per diluted share from utility operations and $0.05 per diluted share from midstream investments. See “Reconciliation of Consolidated income available to common shareholders and diluted earnings (loss) per share (GAAP) to adjusted income and adjusted diluted earnings per share (Non-GAAP)” below.

“During these unprecedented times, I am proud of the tremendous efforts our employees are making every day to continue providing safe and reliable electricity and natural gas to our customers,” said John W. Somerhalder II, interim president and chief executive officer of CenterPoint Energy. “I would like to extend a special thank you to our operations personnel who are on the front lines keeping the electricity on and the natural gas flowing during a time when our customers need them most. Despite the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic and less-than-favorable weather, I am pleased to report that CenterPoint Energy delivered strong first quarter results driven by customer growth, rate relief, disciplined cost management and favorable tax benefits."

Business Segments

Houston Electric - Transmission & Distribution

The Houston electric - transmission & distribution segment reported net income of $37 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared with $30 million for the first quarter of 2019. Net income for the first quarter of 2020 included $3 million of after-tax severance costs. Net income for the first quarter of 2019 included $8 million of after-tax merger-related expenses. On a guidance basis, first quarter 2020 net income was $40 million, compared with $38 million for the first quarter of 2019. On a guidance basis, net income in the first quarter of 2020 benefited primarily from customer growth and lower operations and maintenance expense. These benefits were partially offset by increased depreciation and amortization and other taxes expense, lower equity return, primarily due to the annual true-up of transition charges, and lower miscellaneous revenues.

Indiana Electric – Integrated

The Indiana electric - integrated segment reported a net loss of $171 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared with a net loss of $9 million for the first quarter of 2019. The net loss for the first quarter of 2020 included $185 million of non-cash impairment charges. The net loss for the first quarter of 2019 included $18 million of after-tax merger-related expenses. On a guidance basis, excluding non-cash impairment charges, first quarter 2020 net income was $14 million, compared with $9 million for the first quarter of 2019. On a guidance basis, net income in the first quarter of 2020 benefited primarily from an additional month of earnings from the electric utility acquired in the merger in February 2019 and rate relief. These benefits were partially offset by lower usage, primarily due to unfavorable weather.

Natural Gas Distribution

The natural gas distribution segment reported net income of $204 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared with $120 million for the first quarter of 2019. Net income for the first quarter of 2020 includes $3 million of after-tax severance costs. Net income for the first quarter of 2019 included $44 million of after-tax merger-related expenses. On a guidance basis, first quarter 2020 net income was $207 million, compared with $164 million for the first quarter of 2019. On a guidance basis, net income in the first quarter of 2020 benefited primarily from an additional month of earnings from the gas jurisdictions acquired in the merger in February 2019, rate relief, customer growth and lower operations and maintenance expense. These increases were partially offset by increased depreciation and amortization and other taxes expense, interest expense and lower usage, primarily due to unfavorable weather.

Midstream Investments

The midstream investments segment reported a net loss of $1,127 million for the first quarter of 2020. This loss included after-tax non-cash impairment charges totaling $1,177 million, composed of the company's impairment of its investment in Enable Midstream Partners, LP ("Enable") of $1,166 million and the company's share, $11 million, of impairment charges Enable recorded for goodwill and long-lived assets during the first quarter of 2020. Excluding non-cash impairment charges, first quarter of 2020 net income was $50 million, compared with $24 million for the first quarter of 2019. For further detail, please refer to Enable's investor materials provided during its first quarter 2020 earnings call on May 6, 2020.

Results related to discontinued operations are excluded from the company's guidance basis results.

Earnings Outlook

To provide greater transparency on utility earnings, 2020 guidance will be presented in two components, a guidance basis Utility EPS range and a Midstream Investments EPS expected range.

  • Reiterate 2020 guidance basis Utility EPS range of $1.10 - $1.20
  • 2020 - 2024 target of 5 - 7% compound annual guidance basis Utility EPS growth, using the 2020 range of $1.10 - $1.20 as the starting EPS, assuming the COVID-19 scenario described below
  • 2020 Midstream Investments EPS expected range is $0.15 - $0.18

Utility EPS Guidance Range

  • Utility EPS guidance range includes net income from Houston Electric, Indiana Electric and Natural Gas Distribution segments, as well as after tax operating income from the Corporate and Other segment.
  • The 2020 Utility EPS guidance range considers operations performance to date and assumptions for certain significant variables that may impact earnings, such as customer growth (approximately 2% for electric operations and 1% for natural gas distribution) and usage including normal weather, throughput, recovery of capital invested through rate cases and other rate filings, effective tax rates, financing activities and related interest rates, regulatory and judicial proceedings, anticipated cost savings as a result of the merger and reflects dilution and earnings as if the newly issued preferred stock were issued as common stock. In addition, the Utility EPS guidance range incorporates a COVID-19 scenario range of $0.05 - $0.08 which assumes reduced demand levels with April as the peak and reflects anticipated deferral and recovery of incremental expenses, including bad debt. The COVID-19 scenario also assumes a gradual re-opening of the economy in CenterPoint Energy's service territories, leading to diminishing levels of demand reduction, which would continue through August. To the extent actual recovery deviates from these COVID-19 scenario assumptions, the 2020 Utility EPS guidance range may not be met and our projected full-year guidance range may change. The Utility EPS guidance range also assumes an allocation of corporate overhead based upon its relative earnings contribution. Corporate overhead consists of interest expense, preferred stock dividend requirements, income on Enable preferred units and other items directly attributable to the parent along with the associated income taxes.
  • Utility EPS guidance excludes:
    • Certain integration and transaction-related fees and expenses associated with the merger
    • Severance costs
    • Midstream Investments and allocation of associated corporate overhead
    • Results related to Infrastructure Services and Energy Services, including anticipated costs and impairment resulting from the sale of those businesses
    • Earnings or losses from the change in value of ZENS and related securities
    • Changes in accounting standards

In providing this 2020 guidance, CenterPoint Energy uses a non-GAAP measure of adjusted diluted earnings per share that does not consider the items noted above and other potential impacts, including other unusual items, which could have a material impact on GAAP reported results for the applicable guidance period. CenterPoint Energy is unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of forward looking adjusted diluted earnings per share because changes in the value of ZENS and related securities are not estimable as they are highly variable and difficult to predict due to various factors outside of management’s control.

Midstream Investments EPS Expected Range

The 2020 Midstream Investments EPS expected range is $0.15 - $0.18. In providing this EPS range for Midstream Investments, the company assumes a 53.7 percent limited partner ownership interest in Enable and includes the amortization of its basis differential in Enable and assumes an allocation of CenterPoint Energy corporate overhead based upon Midstream Investments relative earnings contribution. The Midstream Investments EPS expected range reflects dilution and earnings as if CenterPoint Energy's newly issued preferred stock were issued as common stock. The Midstream Investments EPS expected range takes into account such factors as Enable’s most recent public outlook for 2020 dated May 6, 2020, and effective tax rates. The company does not include other potential impacts such as any changes in accounting standards, impairments or Enable’s unusual items.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures by CenterPoint Energy in Providing Guidance

In addition to presenting its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), including presentation of income (loss) available to common shareholders and diluted earnings (loss) per share, CenterPoint Energy also provides guidance based on adjusted income and adjusted diluted earnings per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s historical or future financial performance that excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

To provide greater transparency on utility earnings, CenterPoint Energy’s 2020 guidance will be presented in two components, a guidance basis Utility EPS range and a Midstream Investments EPS expected range. The 2020 Utility EPS guidance range includes net income from Houston Electric, Indiana Electric and Natural Gas Distribution business segments, as well as after tax operating income from the Corporate and Other business segment. The 2020 Utility EPS guidance range considers operations performance to date and assumptions for certain significant variables that may impact earnings, such as customer growth (approximately 2% for electric operations and 1% for natural gas distribution) and usage including normal weather, throughput, recovery of capital invested through rate cases and other rate filings, effective tax rates, financing activities and related interest rates, regulatory and judicial proceedings, anticipated cost savings as a result of the merger and reflects dilution and earnings as if the recently issued preferred stock were issued as common stock. In addition, the 2020 Utility EPS guidance range incorporates a COVID-19 scenario range of $0.05 - $0.08 which assumes reduced demand levels with April as the peak and reflects anticipated deferral and recovery of incremental expenses, including bad debt. The COVID-19 scenario also assumes a gradual re-opening of the economy in CenterPoint Energy's service territories, leading to diminishing levels of demand reduction, which would continue through August. To the extent actual recovery deviates from these COVID-19 scenario assumptions, the 2020 Utility EPS guidance range may not be met and our projected full-year guidance range may change. The 2020 Utility EPS guidance range also assumes an allocation of corporate overhead based upon its relative earnings contribution. Corporate overhead consists of interest expense, preferred stock dividend requirements, income on Enable preferred units and other items directly attributable to the parent along with the associated income taxes. Utility EPS guidance excludes (a) certain integration and transaction-related fees and expenses associated with the merger, (b) severance costs, (c) Midstream Investments and associated allocation of corporate overhead, (d) results related to Infrastructure Services and Energy Services, including anticipated costs and impairment resulting from the sale of those businesses, and (e) earnings or losses from the change in value of ZENS and related securities. In providing this guidance, CenterPoint Energy uses a non-GAAP measure of adjusted diluted earnings per share that does not consider other potential impacts, such as changes in accounting standards or unusual items, which could have a material impact on GAAP reported results for the applicable guidance period. CenterPoint Energy is unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of forward looking adjusted diluted earnings per share because changes in the value of ZENS and related securities are not estimable as they are highly variable and difficult to predict due to various factors outside of management’s control.

The 2020 Midstream Investments EPS expected range assumes a 53.7 percent limited partner ownership interest in Enable and includes the amortization of the Company’s basis differential in Enable and assumes an allocation of CenterPoint Energy corporate overhead based upon Midstream Investments relative earnings contribution. The Midstream Investments EPS expected range reflects dilution and earnings as if the CenterPoint Energy recently issued preferred stock were issued as common stock. The Midstream Investments EPS expected range takes into account such factors as Enable’s most recent public outlook for 2020 dated May 6, 2020, and effective tax rates. The company does not include other potential impacts such as any changes in accounting standards, impairments or Enable’s unusual items.

Management evaluates the company’s financial performance in part based on adjusted income and adjusted diluted earnings per share. Management believes that presenting these non-GAAP financial measures enhances an investor’s understanding of CenterPoint Energy’s overall financial performance by providing them with an additional meaningful and relevant comparison of current and anticipated future results across periods. The adjustments made in these non-GAAP financial measures exclude items that Management believes do not most accurately reflect the company’s fundamental business performance. These excluded items are reflected in the reconciliation tables of this news release, where applicable. CenterPoint Energy’s adjusted income and adjusted diluted earnings per share non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, income available to common shareholders and diluted earnings per share, which respectively are the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures also may be different than non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
