Duke Energy Announces First Post-merger Quarterly Earnings - Third quarter 2012 adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $1.47, compared with $1.50 for the third quarter 2011

- Reported diluted EPS for third quarter 2012 was $0.85, compared to $1.06 for the third quarter 2011

- Company is on pace to achieve its 2012 adjusted diluted earnings guidance range of $4.20 to $4.35 per share

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK) today announced third quarter earnings that for the first time reflect its merger with Progress Energy.

(Logo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20040414/DUKEENERGYLOGO )

Third quarter 2012 adjusted diluted EPS was $1.47, compared to $1.50 for the third quarter of 2011. Reported diluted EPS for the third quarter 2012 was $0.85, compared to $1.06 for the same period last year. Last year's quarterly results have been adjusted to reflect the one-for-three stock split that occurred just prior to the merger closing on July 2, 2012.

Reported results include special items that are excluded from the company's adjusted diluted EPS results. Special items for the third quarter 2012 primarily include $0.42 per share in charges related to the merger's closing, and $0.17 per share in impairment charges related to the company's Edwardsport, Ind., Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) project. Special items for the third quarter 2011 primarily included $0.30 per share of impairment charges related to Edwardsport as well as $0.12 per share of emission allowance impairment charges.

On an adjusted earnings basis, Duke Energy continued to see strength in its regulated businesses in the third quarter of 2012. Revised customer rates, principally resulting from the company's modernization program, helped offset less favorable weather and the expected reduced earnings from International Energy and Commercial Power.

International Energy was affected by unfavorable average foreign exchange rates, while Commercial Power's reduced earnings were principally due to the new market-based Electric Security Plan (ESP) in Ohio.

The earnings contribution from the inclusion of Progress Energy's regulated utility operations in the Carolinas and Florida was substantially offset by dilution related to the issuance of additional shares in connection with the merger.

"Our strong quarterly performance keeps us on track to achieve our targeted 2012 adjusted diluted EPS guidance range of $4.20 to $4.35," said Jim Rogers, chairman, president and CEO.

"We recently celebrated the first 100 days as the 'new' Duke Energy and are coming together as one stronger, more efficient organization," he added. "Our employees are focused on delivering on our merger commitments to customers, regulators and shareholders. We're off to a great start."

BUSINESS UNIT RESULTS
The discussion below of third-quarter results includes adjusted segment income, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. The tables on pages 23 through 26 present a reconciliation of reported results to adjusted results.

U.S. Franchised Electric and Gas (USFE&G)
USFE&G recognized third-quarter 2012 adjusted segment income of $907 million, compared to $472 million in the third quarter 2011, an increase of $0.62 per share.

USFE&G's increased quarterly results were primarily driven by the addition of Progress Energy's regulated utility operations in the Carolinas and Florida (+$0.55 per share). Additionally, quarterly results were higher due to increased pricing and riders (+$0.12 per share) principally related to the implementation of revised customer rates at Duke Energy Carolinas, energy efficiency programs, and lower governance and operating and maintenance costs (+$0.01 per share).  

These results were partially offset by less favorable weather (-$0.06 per share).

International Energy
International Energy recognized third-quarter 2012 adjusted segment income of $103 million, compared to $115 million in the third quarter 2011, a decrease of $0.02 per share.

International Energy's quarterly results decreased primarily due to unfavorable average foreign currency exchange rates (-$0.01 per share).

Commercial Power
Commercial Power recognized third-quarter 2012 adjusted segment income of $31 million, compared to $74 million in the third quarter 2011, a decrease of $0.06 per share.

Commercial Power's quarterly results decreased primarily due to lower results for the Midwest coal generation fleet (-$0.06 per share) resulting from the new market-based ESP in Ohio, partially offset by the ESP's non-bypassable stability charge. The new market-based ESP became effective Jan. 1, 2012.

Other
On an adjusted basis, Other primarily includes corporate interest expense not allocated to the business units, results from Duke Energy's captive insurance company, other investments, and income tax levelization adjustments.

Other recognized a third-quarter 2012 adjusted net expense of $16 million, compared to income of $5 million in the third quarter 2011, a decrease of $0.03 per share. Other's results decreased primarily due to the addition of interest expense on Progress Energy's corporate debt (-$0.05 per share).

Share Dilution
On July 2, 2012, Duke Energy issued approximately 258 million shares of common stock in connection with the closing of the merger with Progress Energy, Inc. The issuance of these additional shares had a dilutive impact of $0.54 per share on the quarter-over-quarter adjusted diluted EPS results.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
The primary performance measure used by management to evaluate segment performance is segment income. Segment income is defined as income from continuing operations net of income attributable to non-controlling interests. In addition, direct interest expense and income taxes are included in segment income and certain governance costs are allocated to each of the segments.

Management believes segment income, which is the GAAP measure used to report segment results, is a good indicator of each segment's operating performance as it represents the approximate net income contribution of Duke Energy's business segments by incorporating the direct financing methods or capital structures of the business segments as well as the income tax attributes of the businesses and regions in which they operate.

Duke Energy's management uses adjusted diluted EPS, which is a non-GAAP financial measure as it represents diluted EPS from continuing operations attributable to Duke Energy Corporation common shareholders, adjusted for the per-share impact of special items and the mark-to-market impacts of economic hedges in the Commercial Power segment, as a measure to evaluate operations of the company. In addition, Duke Energy's management calculates the EPS impact of segment income drivers to facilitate an understanding of the impacts of each income driver on consolidated adjusted diluted EPS.

Special items represent certain charges and credits, which management believes will not be recurring on a regular basis, although it is reasonably possible such charges and credits could recur. Mark-to-market adjustments reflect the mark-to-market impact of derivative contracts, which is recognized in GAAP earnings immediately as such derivative contracts do not qualify for hedge accounting or regulatory accounting treatment, used in Duke Energy's hedging of a portion of the economic value of its generation assets in the Commercial Power segment. The economic value of the generation assets is subject to fluctuations in fair value due to market price volatility of the input and output commodities (e.g. coal, power) and, as such, the economic hedging involves both purchases and sales of those input and output commodities related to the generation assets. Because the operations of the generation assets are accounted for under the accrual method, management believes that excluding the impact of mark-to-market changes of the economic hedge contracts from adjusted earnings until settlement better matches the financial impacts of the hedge contract with the portion of the economic value of the underlying hedged asset. Management believes that the presentation of adjusted diluted EPS provides useful information to investors, as it provides them an additional relevant comparison of the company's performance across periods. Adjusted diluted EPS is also used as a basis for employee incentive bonuses. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for adjusted diluted EPS is reported diluted EPS from continuing operations attributable to Duke Energy Corporation common shareholders, which includes the impact of special items and the mark-to-market impacts of economic hedges in the Commercial Power segment. Due to the forward-looking nature of adjusted diluted EPS for future periods, information to reconcile such non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is not available at this time, as the company is unable to forecast special items and the mark-to-market impacts of economic hedges in the Commercial Power segment for future periods.

Duke Energy also uses adjusted segment income and adjusted Other net expenses as a measure of historical and anticipated future segment and Other performance. Adjusted segment income and adjusted Other net expenses are non-GAAP financial measures, as they represent reported segment income and Other net expenses adjusted for special items and the mark-to-market impacts of economic hedges in the Commercial Power segment. Management believes that the presentation of adjusted segment income and adjusted Other net expenses provides useful information to investors, as it provides them an additional relevant comparison of a segment's or Other's performance across periods. When an EPS amount is provided for a segment income driver, the per share impact is derived by taking the before-tax amount of the item less income taxes based on the segment's effective tax rate, divided by the Duke Energy weighted-average shares outstanding for the period. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for adjusted segment income or adjusted Other net expenses is reported segment income or Other net expenses, which represents segment income and Other net expenses from continuing operations, including any special items and the mark-to-market impacts of economic hedges in the Commercial Power segment. Due to the forward-looking nature of any forecasted adjusted segment income or adjusted Other net expenses and any related growth rates for future periods, information to reconcile these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is not available at this time, as the company is unable to forecast special items, the mark-to-market impacts of economic hedges in the Commercial Power segment, or any amounts that may be reported as discontinued operations or extraordinary items for future periods.

Duke Energy is the largest electric power holding company in the United States with more than $100 billion in total assets. Its regulated utility operations serve approximately 7.1 million electric customers located in six states in the Southeast and Midwest. Its commercial power and international business segments own and operate diverse power generation assets in North America and Latin America, including a growing portfolio of renewable energy assets in the United States.
