Sempra Energy Reports Higher 2014 Earnings

- Company Sets 2015 Adjusted Earnings-per-Share Guidance Range at $4.60 to $5

- Annualized Dividend Increased 6 Percent to $2.80 Per Share

Feb 26, 2015

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE) today reported 2014 earnings of $1.16 billion, or $4.63 per diluted share, compared with 2013 earnings of $1 billion, or $4.01 per diluted share. 

Sempra Energy's 2014 results reflected $21 million in charges related to the early closure of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), including $12 million in the fourth quarter.  Sempra Energy's 2013 results included $77 million for the 2012 retroactive impact of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) General Rate Case decision for San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) and Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas), offset by a $119 million charge related to the SONGS closure.

Excluding the SONGS charges in 2014 and 2013 and the retroactive earnings from the rate case in 2013, Sempra Energy's adjusted earnings in 2014 were $1.18 billion, or $4.71 per diluted share, up from adjusted earnings of $1.04 billion, or $4.18 per diluted share, in 2013. 

Sempra Energy's fourth-quarter earnings increased to $297 million, or $1.18 per diluted share, from $282 million, or $1.13 per diluted share, in 2013.  Excluding the SONGS charge in the fourth quarter 2014, Sempra Energy's adjusted earnings in the fourth quarter 2014 were $309 million, or $1.23 per diluted share.

"We achieved excellent results in 2014," said Debra L. Reed, chairman and CEO of Sempra Energy.  "We delivered strong, year-over-year earnings growth and we advanced the Cameron LNG liquefaction-export facility and our other major infrastructure projects that are central to our five-year growth plan. We have made great progress toward achieving compound annual growth in earnings per share toward the upper end of our stated growth-rate range of 9 percent to 11 percent from 2014 through 2019." 

Last week, Sempra Energy's board of directors approved a 6-percent increase in the company's annualized dividend to $2.80 per share from $2.64 per share.

 

 

 

CALIFORNIA UTILITIES

San Diego Gas & Electric

SDG&E's fourth-quarter earnings increased to $128 million in 2014 from $119 million in 2013, due primarily to higher margin from electric transmission and CPUC base operations, and lower legal costs, offset by the $12 million charge related to the SONGS closure.

Earnings for SDG&E increased to $507 million in 2014 from $404 million in 2013.  SDG&E's 2014 results included a charge of $21 million related to the closure of SONGS.  In 2013, SDG&E took a $119 million charge related to the SONGS closure, offset by $52 million in retroactive earnings for 2012 operations as a result of the CPUC General Rate Case decision. 

 

Southern California Gas Co.

In the fourth quarter 2014, SoCalGas' earnings were $76 million, compared with $98 million in the fourth quarter 2013, due primarily to lower income-tax expense in 2013.

SoCalGas' earnings were $332 million in 2014, compared with $364 million in 2013.  In 2013, SoCalGas recorded $25 million in retroactive earnings for 2012 operations as a result of the CPUC General Rate Case decision.  

 

 

 

SEMPRA INTERNATIONAL

Sempra South American Utilities

In the fourth quarter 2014, Sempra South American Utilities' earnings rose to $63 million from $43 million, due primarily to lower deferred taxes related to Peruvian tax reform.  

In 2014, earnings for Sempra South American Utilities increased to $172 million from $153 million in 2013. 

Sempra Mexico

Sempra Mexico's fourth-quarter earnings were $53 million in 2014, compared with $26 million in 2013, due primarily to the net favorable impact of foreign currency exchange and inflation effects, and higher deferred tax expense in 2013 related to Mexican tax reform. 

Sempra Mexico's earnings in 2014 increased to $192 million from $122 million in 2013, primarily due to higher earnings from operations, including improved margins, new assets placed into service and regulatory earnings from projects in construction. 

 

 

 

SEMPRA U.S. GAS & POWER

Sempra Natural Gas

In the fourth quarter 2014, Sempra Natural Gas earned $11 million, compared with $9 million in the fourth quarter 2013.

Sempra Renewables

Fourth-quarter earnings for Sempra Renewables increased to $18 million in 2014 from $6 million in 2013, due primarily to the gain on sale of 50 percent of the Broken Bow 2 wind-power project and higher deferred income-tax benefits. 

In 2014, earnings for Sempra Renewables were $81 million, up from $62 million in 2013.

 

 

 

2015 EARNINGS GUIDANCE

Sempra Energy announced today that it set its adjusted earnings-per-share guidance range for 2015 at $4.60 to $5, which excludes the estimated earnings impact of the expected sale of the remainder of the Mesquite Power natural gas-fired generating facility ($0.12 per share to $0.15 per share) and the earnings impact of potential LNG-related development activities.

RECONCILIATION OF SEMPRA ENERGY GAAP EARNINGS TO SEMPRA ENERGY ADJUSTED EARNINGS EXCLUDING PLANT CLOSURE LOSS IN 2014 AND 2013 AND RETROACTIVE IMPACTS OF 2012 GENERAL RATE CASE (GRC) IN 2013 (Unaudited)

       

Sempra Energy Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Earnings Per Share exclude 1) in the year ended December 31, 2014, a $21 million charge, including $12 million in the fourth quarter, to adjust the total plant closure loss resulting from the early retirement of San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS); and 2) in the year ended December 31, 2013, a $119 million plant closure loss and $77 million retroactive impact of the 2012 GRC for the full-year 2012. In addition to the $12 million fourth-quarter charge, the $21 million full-year charge to adjust the SONGS plant closure loss also includes a $9 million charge recorded in the first quarter of 2014 based on a proposed settlement agreement that was subsequently amended to become the agreement approved in November 2014. Sempra Energy Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Earnings Per Share, and the Earnings-Per-Share Growth Rate based on 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 2014 to 2013 and to future periods, and also as a base for projection of future compounded annual growth rate. 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, Diluted Earnings Per Common Share and the Earnings-Per-Share Growth Rate, 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

   
               

Sempra Energy 2015 Adjusted Earnings-Per-Share Guidance excludes 1) an estimated $0.12 to $0.15 per diluted share after-tax gain ($0.21 to $0.25 per diluted share, before tax) from the sale of the remaining block of the Mesquite Power plant, which sale is expected to close in the first half of 2015 and 2) after-tax development costs associated with the potential expansion of our liquefied natural gas (LNG) business. Sempra Energy 2015 Adjusted Earnings-Per-Share Guidance is a non-GAAP financial measure. Because of the significance and nature of the 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. Due to the uncertainty regarding the nature, timing and amount of the potential LNG development-related costs we may incur and the extent to which such costs may be capitalized rather than expensed, we are not able to provide a reasonable estimate of such costs at this time. Accordingly, we are not able to provide a corresponding GAAP equivalent to our 2015 Adjusted Earnings-Per-Share Guidance.

SDG&E Adjusted Earnings exclude 1) in the year ended December 31, 2014, a $21 million charge, including $12 million in the fourth quarter, to adjust the total plant closure loss resulting from the early retirement of SONGS; and 2) in the year ended December 31, 2013, a $119 million plant closure loss and $52 million retroactive impact of the 2012 GRC for the full-year 2012. In addition to the $12 million fourth-quarter charge, the $21 million full-year charge to adjust the SONGS plant closure loss also includes a $9 million charge recorded in the first quarter of 2014 based on a proposed settlement agreement that was subsequently amended to become the agreement approved in November 2014. SDG&E Adjusted Earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure. SoCalGas Adjusted Earnings for the year ended December 31, 2013 exclude a $25 million retroactive impact of the 2012 GRC for the full-year 2012, and is a non-GAAP financial measure. 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 SDG&E's and SoCalGas' business operations from 2014 to 2013 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.
