Sempra Energy Announces Third-Quarter Financial Results

- Company raises 2015 adjusted earnings-per-share guidance range to $4.95 to $5.15

- California utilities file proposed settlements in General Rate Cases

Nov 3, 2015

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE) today reported third-quarter 2015 earnings of $248 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, compared with $348 million, or $1.39 per diluted share, in last year's third quarter.

For the first nine months of 2015, Sempra Energy's earnings were $980 million, or $3.91 per diluted share, up from $864 million, or $3.45 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2014.

"Through three quarters, we are on track to exceed our 2015 financial and operational objectives, so we have raised our adjusted earnings guidance for the year," said Debra L. Reed, chairman and CEO of Sempra Energy. "During the third quarter, our California utilities made good progress in their General Rate Cases and our other businesses continued with their construction activities on major projects, including the Cameron LNG liquefaction-export facility."  

Sempra Energy's nine-month results in 2015 included a $36 million after-tax gain on the sale of the second block of Sempra U.S. Gas & Power's Mesquite Power facility, $7 million after tax in liquefied natural gas (LNG) liquefaction development expenses and a benefit of $13 million after tax for San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), due to the reduction in the loss related to the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS).  In the first nine months of 2014, SDG&E recorded a $9 million charge related to the closure of SONGS.  Excluding items in both years, Sempra Energy's adjusted earnings in the first nine months of 2015 were $938 million, or $3.75 per diluted share, up from $873 million, or $3.49 per diluted share, in the first nine months of last year.

Beginning in the first quarter 2015, Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) adopted an order by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to recognize revenues from the utility's core activities on a seasonally adjusted basis (seasonality). The application of seasonality in revenues will result in substantially all of SoCalGas' annual earnings being reported in the first and fourth quarters of the year, but will not affect full-year operating earnings or cash flow.

Sempra Energy's third-quarter 2015 earnings reflected $113 million lower earnings at SoCalGas due to seasonality, compared with the third quarter 2014.  For the first nine months of 2015, Sempra Energy's earnings were $48 million lower at SoCalGas due to seasonality, compared with the same period last year.  Sempra Energy will see a $48 million after-tax benefit at SoCalGas in the fourth quarter related to seasonality.

CALIFORNIA UTILITIES

San Diego Gas & Electric

Earnings for SDG&E in the third quarter 2015 were $170 million, up from $157 million in the third quarter 2014, primarily due to higher CPUC base margin and higher earnings from electric transmission operations.   

For the first nine months of 2015, SDG&E's earnings were $443 million, up from $379 million in the first nine months last year.  Excluding the SONGS-related items in the first quarters of 2015 and 2014, SDG&E's adjusted earnings for the first nine months of 2015 were $430 million, compared with $388 million in the first nine months of 2014.   

Southern California Gas Co.

SoCalGas recorded a loss of $8 million in the third quarter 2015, compared with earnings of $98 million in last year's third quarter. The reduction in earnings was due primarily to seasonality of revenues, which had a $113 million negative impact for the most recent quarter.

For the first nine months of 2015, SoCalGas' earnings were $276 million in 2015, up from $256 million in the same period last year.

On Sept. 11, SoCalGas and SDG&E filed multi-party settlement agreements in their General Rate Cases for 2016-18 at the CPUC.  Sempra Energy expects the CPUC to issue a draft decision in the proceeding in the first quarter 2016.   

SEMPRA INTERNATIONAL

Sempra South American Utilities

In the third quarter 2015, earnings for Sempra South American Utilities increased to $43 million from $32 million in the third quarter 2014, due primarily to higher operating earnings and lower income-tax expense.

For the first nine months of 2015, earnings for Sempra South American Utilities were $129 million, up from $109 million in the same period last year.

Sempra Mexico

Third-quarter earnings for Sempra Mexico were $63 million in 2015, unchanged from last year.  In last year's third quarter, Sempra Mexico recorded a $14 million benefit related to the sale of a 50-percent equity interest in the first phase of the Energía Sierra Juárez wind project.

For the nine-month period, Sempra Mexico had earnings of $160 million in 2015, up from $139 million in 2014.

As disclosed previously, Sempra Energy's Mexican subsidiary, IEnova, is planning to raise approximately $1.3 billion in a public offering to finance its acquisition of PEMEX's 50-percent equity interest in IEnova's and PEMEX's shared joint venture.  After taking into account IEnova's equity offering, including Sempra Energy's expected participation in the offering, the acquisition is anticipated to be about $0.05-per-share accretive to Sempra Energy's earnings per share in 2016, growing to about $0.10 per share by 2019.

SEMPRA U.S. GAS & POWER

Sempra Renewables

Earnings for Sempra Renewables in the third quarter 2015 were $15 million, compared with $17 million in the third quarter 2014. 

During the first nine months of 2015, earnings for Sempra Renewables were $47 million, compared with $63 million in the first nine months of 2014.  Nine-month earnings for Sempra Renewables in 2014 included a $16 million first-quarter benefit from the sale of a 50-percent equity interest in the Copper Mountain Solar 3 facility.

Sempra Natural Gas

Sempra Natural Gas had third-quarter earnings of $1 million in 2015, compared with earnings of $26 million in 2014, due primarily to a Louisiana state income-tax benefit in 2014. 

For the first nine months of 2015, Sempra Natural Gas had earnings of $43 million, up from $39 million in the same period last year. 

EARNINGS GUIDANCE    

Sempra Energy today raised its 2015 adjusted earnings-per-share guidance range to $4.95 to $5.15 from $4.60 to $5.  Both the new and prior adjusted guidance for 2015 exclude the increase in earnings from the reduction in the SONGS-closure-related loss and the earnings impact from expenses related to potential LNG development.  Additionally, the new and prior adjusted guidance for 2015 exclude the $36 million benefit from the sale of the second block of the Mesquite Power natural gas-fired generating facility and any gain from IEnova's acquisition of PEMEX's interest in their joint venture.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Non-GAAP financial measures include adjusted earnings for the nine-month periods in 2015 and 2014 for Sempra Energy and SDG&E, as well as Sempra Energy's 2015 adjusted earnings guidance.  Additional information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures is in the appendix on Table A of the third-quarter financial tables.

the timing and success of business development efforts and construction, maintenance and capital projects, including risks in obtaining, maintaining or extending permits, licenses, certificates and other authorizations on a timely basis and risks in obtaining adequate and competitive financing for such projects; energy markets, including the timing and extent of changes and volatility in commodity prices, and the impact of any protracted reduction in oil and natural gas prices from historical averages; the impact on the value of our natural gas storage assets from low natural gas prices, low volatility of natural gas prices and the inability to procure favorable long-term contracts for natural gas storage services; delays in the timing of costs incurred and the timing of the regulatory agency authorization to recover such costs in rates from customers; deviations from regulatory precedent or practice that result in a reallocation of benefits or burdens among shareholders and ratepayers; capital markets conditions, including the availability of credit and the liquidity of our investments; inflation, interest and currency exchange rates; the impact of benchmark interest rates, generally Moody's A-rated utility bond yields, on our California Utilities' cost of capital; the availability of electric power, natural gas and liquefied natural gas, and natural gas pipeline and storage capacity, including disruptions caused by failures in the North American transmission grid, pipeline explosions and equipment failures and the decommissioning of San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS); cybersecurity threats to the energy grid, natural gas 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, terrorist attacks that threaten system operations and critical infrastructure, and wars;

risks that our partners or counterparties will be unable or unwilling to fulfill their contractual commitments; risks posed by decisions and actions of third parties who control the operations of investments in which we do not have a controlling interest; risks inherent with nuclear power facilities and radioactive materials storage, including the catastrophic release of such materials, the disallowance of the recovery of the investment in, or operating costs of, the nuclear facility due to an extended outage and facility closure, and increased regulatory oversight, including motions to modify settlements; business, regulatory, environmental and legal decisions and requirements; expropriation of assets by foreign governments and title and other property disputes; the impact on reliability of San Diego Gas & Electric Company's (SDG&E) electric transmission and distribution system due to increased amount and variability of power supply from renewable energy sources and increased reliance on natural gas and natural gas transmission systems; the impact on competitive customer rates of the growth in distributed and local power generation and the corresponding decrease in demand for power delivered through SDG&E's electric transmission and distribution system; the inability or determination not to enter into long-term supply and sales agreements or long-term firm capacity agreements due to insufficient market interest, unattractive pricing or other factors; the resolution of litigation; and other uncertainties, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control.  These risks and uncertainties are further discussed in the reports that Sempra Energy has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

RECONCILIATION OF SEMPRA ENERGY GAAP EARNINGS TO SEMPRA ENERGY ADJUSTED EARNINGS EXCLUDING GAIN ON SALE IN 2015, PLANT CLOSURE ADJUSTMENTS IN 2015 AND 2014 AND LNG LIQUEFACTION DEVELOPMENT EXPENSES IN 2015 (Unaudited)

                 

Sempra Energy Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Earnings Per Share exclude 1) in the nine months ended September 30, 2015, a $36 million gain on the sale of the remaining block of the Mesquite Power plant, and a $13 million reduction in the plant closure loss related to the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) due to California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approval of a compliance filing related to San Diego Gas & Electric Company's (SDG&E) authorized recovery of its investment in SONGS, 2) in the nine months ended September 30, 2014, a $9 million increase in the SONGS plant closure loss as a result of reaching a preliminary settlement agreement on the closure, and 3) in the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2015, $2 million and $7 million, respectively, of liquefied natural gas (LNG) liquefaction development expenses. Sempra Energy Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Earnings Per Share are non-GAAP financial measures (GAAP represents accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America). Because of the significance and nature of these items, management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide a more meaningful comparison of the performance of Sempra Energy's business operations from 2015 to 2014 and to future periods, and also as a base for projection of future compounded annual growth rate. Management believes that these financial measures also provide a more meaningful measure of Sempra Energy's financial performance in 2015 in comparison to our previously issued adjusted earnings-per-share 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 for historical periods these non-GAAP financial measures to Sempra Energy Earnings and Diluted Earnings Per Common Share, which we consider to be the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

SEMPRA ENERGY 2015 ADJUSTED EARNINGS-PER-SHARE GUIDANCE RANGE (Unaudited)

   
                 

Sempra Energy 2015 Adjusted Earnings-Per-Share Guidance Range of $4.95 to $5.15 excludes 1) a $0.14 per diluted share after-tax gain from the April 2015 sale of the remaining block of the Mesquite Power plant, 2) $0.05 per diluted share from reduction in the first quarter of 2015 in the plant closure loss related to SONGS due to CPUC approval of a compliance filing related to SDG&E's authorized recovery of its investment in SONGS, 3) $0.05 per diluted share for estimated after-tax development expenses associated with the potential expansion of our LNG business, and 4) an anticipated noncash gain from the remeasurement of our equity method investment in Gasoductos de Chihuahua (GdC), a 50-50 joint venture between our Mexican subsidiary, IEnova, and Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX), in connection with the pending acquisition by IEnova of PEMEX's 50-percent interest in GdC. Sempra Energy 2015 Adjusted Earnings-Per-Share Guidance is a non-GAAP financial measure. Because of the significance and nature of these excluded items, management believes this non-GAAP measure provides better clarity into the ongoing results of the business and the comparability of such results to prior and future periods. Sempra Energy 2015 Adjusted Earnings-Per-Share Guidance should not be considered an alternative to diluted earnings per share determined in accordance with GAAP. As the pending GdC transaction is not expected to close until the fourth quarter of 2015, the gain cannot be reasonably estimated at this time, and accordingly, we are not able to provide a corresponding GAAP equivalent to our 2015 Adjusted Earnings-Per-Share Guidance.

RECONCILIATION OF SDG&E GAAP EARNINGS TO SDG&E ADJUSTED EARNINGS EXCLUDING PLANT CLOSURE ADJUSTMENTS IN 2015 AND 2014 (Unaudited)

                 

SDG&E Adjusted Earnings exclude 1) in the nine months ended September 30, 2015, a $13 million reduction in the plant closure loss related to SONGS due to CPUC approval of a compliance filing related to SDG&E's authorized recovery of its investment in SONGS, and 2) in the nine months ended September 30, 2014, a $9 million increase in the SONGS plant closure loss as a result of reaching a preliminary settlement agreement on the closure. SDG&E Adjusted Earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure. Because of the significance and nature of these items, management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides a more meaningful comparison of the performance of SDG&E's business operations from 2015 to 2014 and to 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.

Results for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2015 for Southern California Gas (SoCalGas) reflect the adoption of a California Public Utilities Commission decision requiring SoCalGas to recognize annual revenue for core natural gas customers using seasonal factors, instead of recognizing such revenue ratably over the year as was previously required. For the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to the same periods in 2014, this "seasonalization" resulted in $113 million lower earnings and $48 million lower earnings, respectively. While this seasonalization will cause variability in results from quarter to quarter within the year, it will not impact full-year 2015 results.
