Progress Energy Announces 2012 First-Quarter Results; Affirms Full-Year 2012 Earnings Guidance
Highlights:

RALEIGH, N.C., May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Progress Energy (NYSE: PGN) announced first-quarter GAAP earnings of $150 million, or $0.51 per share, compared with GAAP earnings of $184 million, or $0.62 per share, for the same period last year. First-quarter ongoing earnings were $143 million, or $0.48 per share, compared to $202 million, or $0.69 per share, for the same period last year. The significant drivers in ongoing earnings per share were unfavorable impact of weather in the Carolinas, higher operation and maintenance (O&M) expense and higher depreciation and amortization expense. The higher O&M expense is primarily due to an additional planned nuclear refueling outage at Progress Energy Carolinas (PEC), partially offset by the reversal of certain regulatory liabilities in accordance with the 2012 settlement agreement at Progress Energy Florida (PEF). (See the discussion later in this release for a reconciliation of ongoing earnings per share to GAAP earnings per share.)

"The extremely mild weather through the first quarter of 2012 – although certainly a welcome respite for our customers – resulted in significantly lower energy sales in the Carolinas," said Chairman, President and CEO Bill Johnson. "We remain focused on meeting our financial goals and shareholder expectations for the year through operational excellence, cost management and consistent execution, as we await the last regulatory approvals of our pending merger with Duke Energy."

Progress Energy affirms 2012 ongoing earnings guidance of $3.10 to $3.25 per share. The ongoing earnings guidance excludes the impact, if any, from discontinued operations, the effects of certain identified gains and charges and any merger and integration costs from our proposed strategic combination with Duke Energy Corporation. Progress Energy is not able to provide a corresponding GAAP equivalent for the 2012 ongoing earnings guidance due to the uncertain nature and amount of these adjustments.

Progress Energy will host a conference call and webcast at 11 a.m. ET today to review first-quarter 2012 financial performance, as well as provide an overall business update. Additional details are provided at the end of this earnings release.

See the first-quarter 2012 business highlights section for detailed first-quarter 2012 earnings variance analyses for the PEC, PEF and Corporate and Other Businesses segments.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Duke Energy – Progress Energy Merger

  • Filed a revised market power mitigation plan with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on March 26, 2012. The revised plan consists of both interim and permanent components. The interim component consists of several power purchase agreements whereby the companies propose to sell capacity and firm energy during the summer and winter to new market participants. The permanent component consists of seven transmission projects to be constructed, estimated to cost approximately $110 million. The transmission projects significantly increase power import capabilities into the PEC and Duke Energy Carolinas service territories and enhance competitive power supply options for the region. The companies requested that the FERC issue orders approving the revised mitigation plan within 60 days, but no later than June 8, 2012. On April 13, 2012, the companies responded to the FERC's subsequent request for additional information on the transmission-related models provided in the revised mitigation plan.
  • Filed two additional filings with the FERC on March 26, 2012. The first filing is a joint dispatch agreement (JDA), pursuant to which PEC and Duke Energy Carolinas will agree to jointly dispatch their generation facilities in order to achieve certain of the operating efficiencies expected to result from the merger. The second filing is a joint open access transmission tariff (OATT) pursuant to which PEC and Duke Energy Carolinas will agree to provide transmission service over their transmission facilities under a single transmission rate.
  • The public comment period for the JDA and OATT closed on April 16, 2012. Additionally, the public comment for the revised market power mitigation plan closed on April 25, 2012. The companies have filed responses to these comments with the FERC, and the FERC now has a complete record to proceed with their evaluations.
  • On March 22, 2012, the companies submitted a second Hart-Scott-Rodino filing with the U.S. Department of Justice and have met their obligations under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act. Because the merger did not close before the April 26, 2012, expiration of the original filing, Progress Energy and Duke Energy made a new filing under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act in order to be able to close the merger and continue to meet their obligations.
  • The merger is targeted to close by July 1, 2012.

Financial and Regulatory

  • On Feb. 22, 2012, the Florida Public Service Commission (FPSC) unanimously approved the comprehensive settlement agreement reached collaboratively among PEF, the Office of Public Counsel and other consumer advocates.
  • Filed 2013 nuclear cost-recovery estimates with the FPSC.

Power System

  • Completed scheduled refueling outages at the Robinson Nuclear Plant (RNP) in March and the Brunswick Nuclear Plant in April. Upgrades made to RNP during the outage are expected to result in an approximate 20-megawatt (MW) capacity increase for the plant.
  • Entered a scheduled refueling outage at the Harris Nuclear Plant in April, completing a 525-day breaker-to-breaker run for the plant. There were no forced outages and the plant had no unplanned power changes during the 18-month period.
  • Announced plans to convert PEF's 1,011-MW Anclote Units 1 and 2 from oil and natural gas- fired to 100 percent natural gas-fired and requested that the FPSC permit recovery of the estimated $79 million conversion cost through the environmental cost recovery clause.
  • Implementing post-Fukushima lessons learned by conducting in-depth inspections and analyses of the nuclear fleet, installing equipment to monitor and respond to potential emergencies, and developing plans for additional safety and security initiatives.

Alternative Energy and Energy Efficiency

  • Signed contracts to purchase power from the following facilities:
    • 1.26-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) array became operational in April 2012, in New Bern, N.C.
    • 1-MW solar PV array became operational in April 2012 in Raleigh, N.C.
  • Completed installation of more than 120 plug-in vehicle charging stations at residential and commercial customer locations in the Carolinas and Florida since Sept. 2011. A total of 250 charging stations are planned as part of this charging station research program.
  • Surpassed 275 residential solar PV systems installed in the Carolinas and Florida through the SunSense Solar PV Program.
  • Filed prepay program in North Carolina and South Carolina that allows customers in certain areas the option of prepaying for electric service, giving them greater control over their energy use. The program was approved in South Carolina on April 11, 2012. It is still under review at the N.C. Utilities Commission.

ONGOING EARNINGS ADJUSTMENTS

Progress Energy's management uses ongoing earnings per share to evaluate the operations of the company and to establish goals for management and employees. Management believes this non-GAAP measure is appropriate for understanding the business and assessing our potential future performance, because excluded items are limited to those that we believe are not representative of our fundamental core earnings. Ongoing earnings as presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Ongoing earnings is computed as GAAP net income attributable to controlling interests (or GAAP earnings) less discontinued operations and the effects of certain identified gains and charges.  The following table provides a reconciliation of ongoing earnings per share to reported GAAP earnings per share.

Reconciling adjustments from ongoing earnings to GAAP earnings are as follows:

Tax Levelization

Generally accepted accounting principles require companies to apply an effective tax rate to interim periods that is consistent with a company's estimated annual tax rate. The company projects the effective tax rate for the year and then, based upon projected operating income for each quarter, increases or decreases the tax expense recorded in that quarter to reflect the projected tax rate. Because this adjustment varies by quarter but has no impact on annual earnings, management does not consider this item to be representative of the company's fundamental core earnings.

Discontinued Operations

The company has completed its business strategy of divesting nonregulated businesses to reduce its business risk and focus on core operations of the Utilities. Resolution of guarantees and indemnifications providing for certain legal, tax and environmental matters could result in additional adjustments. In 2012, the company recorded the reversal of certain environmental indemnification liabilities for which the indemnification period has expired. Management does not consider this item to be representative of the company's fundamental core earnings.

Contingent Value Obligations (CVO) Mark-to-Market

In connection with the acquisition of Florida Progress Corporation, Progress Energy issued CVOs that represent the right of the holder to receive contingent payments based on net after-tax cash flows above certain levels of four synthetic fuels facilities purchased by subsidiaries of Florida Progress Corporation in October 1999. The CVO liability is valued at fair value, and gains and losses from changes in fair value of CVOs not held by Progress Energy are recognized in earnings. Progress Energy is unable to predict the changes in the fair value of the CVOs, and management does not consider this item to be representative of the company's fundamental core earnings.

Merger and Integration Costs

The company recorded charges for merger and integration costs related to the merger. Management does not consider this item to be representative of the company's fundamental core earnings.

(a) The preceding table provides a reconciliation of reported GAAP O&M to O&M Primarily Recoverable through Base Rates.  

      O&M Primarily Recoverable through Base Rates excludes certain expenses that are recovered through cost-recovery clauses 

      which have no material impact on earnings.  Management believes this presentation is appropriate and enables investors to 

      more accurately compare the company's O&M expense over the periods presented.  O&M Primarily Recoverable through 

      Base Rates as presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.


(b) DSM = Demand-side management





      EE = Energy efficiency





      REPS = Renewable energy portfolio standard
