30 Apr, 2014, 06:30 ET from NiSource Inc.

MERRILLVILLE, Ind., April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NiSource Inc. (NYSE: NI) today announced net operating earnings from continuing operations (non-GAAP) of $258.4 million, or $0.82 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared with $215.3 million, or $0.69 per share, for the same period in 2013. Operating earnings for the first quarter (non-GAAP) were $509.1 million compared to $427.9 million in the year-ago period.

On a GAAP basis, NiSource reported income from continuing operations of $266.4 million, or $0.85 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared with $216.0 million, or $0.69 per share in the same period in 2013. Operating income was $533.7 million for the first quarter of 2014, compared with $428.9 million in the year-ago period. Schedules 1 and 2 of this news release contain a reconciliation of net operating earnings and operating earnings to GAAP.

"Our Team delivered another quarter of solid performance and steady execution on NiSource's expansive, infrastructure-focused investment strategy," President and Chief Executive Officer Robert C. Skaggs, Jr. said. "Our utilities advanced key regulatory, legislative and long-term system enhancement programs, while our pipeline, storage and midstream business originated and executed on a robust inventory of growth and modernization projects. This continued focus on execution places us in a solid position to deliver net operating earnings in line with our guidance range of $1.61 to $1.71 per share for the year (non-GAAP)."

Columbia Pipeline Group continues execution on a growing number of infrastructure investments

NiSource's Columbia Pipeline Group (CPG) continues to make steady progress on its long-term infrastructure modernization programs, as well as its expanding inventory of midstream and core growth initiatives tied to the company's strong asset position in the Utica and Marcellus Shale production regions. CPG is on track to invest more than $800 million in 2014. Key year-to-date execution highlights for CPG include:

  • Columbia Gas Transmission (Columbia Transmission) is on track with the second year of its long-term system modernization program. Under the program, CPG will invest approximately $300 million annually in improvements to system reliability, safety and flexibility. A settlement with the company's customers addresses the initial five years of an expected 10-15 year program that exceeds $4 billion in investment.
  • NiSource Midstream executed a binding agreement for the approximately $120 million Washington County Gathering project. The project, anchored by a long-term agreement with a subsidiary of Range Resources Corporation, will consist of gathering pipelines and compression facilities to transport well-head production into a nearby Columbia Transmission pipeline. Construction is anticipated to begin in late 2014, with an in-service date during the second half of 2015.
  • Millennium Pipeline completed a new $40 million compressor facility in Delaware County, N.Y., which went into service in March. NiSource owns a 47.5 percent interest in Millennium.
  • CPG also remains on track with the execution of significant new supply- and market-driven growth projects, including the previously announced Warren County, West Side Expansion, Giles County and Line 1570 projects. These projects, which will provide total additional pipeline capacity of approximately 900 million cubic feet per day, are scheduled to be in service by the end of 2014. The approximately $275 million East Side project remains on budget and on schedule for completion in the third quarter of 2015.
  • CPG continued advanced discussions with customers following the positive open season results for its Rayne XPress and Leach XPress projects. Together these projects are expected to provide additional transportation capacity of about 1.5 billion cubic feet per day, offering enhanced market access for Marcellus and Utica production via the Columbia Transmission and Columbia Gulf Transmission systems.
  • Most recently, CPG completed a successful non-binding open season for its WB XPress project, which would involve the transportation of more than 1 billion cubic feet of Marcellus Shale production. Additional details on this project will be provided later this year.

"With an expanding mix of new and ongoing projects, as well as the systematic modernization of our core system, the CPG Team is strengthening the services we provide to our customers, assuring the continued reliability of our system and establishing the much-needed infrastructure for the ongoing development of shale energy supplies," Skaggs said.

NIPSCO advances key environmental, system reliability and modernization investments

NiSource's Indiana natural gas and electric business, Northern Indiana Public Service Co. (NIPSCO), remained on track with a broad agenda of system modernization, reliability and environmental improvements. Key NIPSCO execution highlights include:

  • Two remaining flue gas desulfurization (FGD) projects at NIPSCO's coal-fired electric generating facilities remain on schedule and on budget. With projected completion dates of year-end 2014 and year-end 2015, the FGD investments are part of more than $850 million in environmental investments, including water quality and emission-control projects, recently completed and planned at NIPSCO's electric generating facilities.
  • NIPSCO also has initiated the first year of investments under the company's electric system modernization program, approved in February by the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC). The $1.1 billion, seven-year program provides for the replacement and upgrade of underground circuits, transformers and poles, helping increase system reliability and deliver economic development benefits to the region. NIPSCO also has filed a complementary seven-year, $700 million natural gas modernization program, with a decision from the IURC expected as early as today.
  • Progress also continued on two major NIPSCO electric transmission projects designed to enhance system flexibility and reliability. The Reynolds-Topeka project, a 100-mile, 345-kilovolt line, remains on schedule with right-of-way acquisition in process. The Greentown-Reynolds project, a roughly 70-mile, 765-kilovolt line, is a joint project with Pioneer Transmission. Public outreach on the Greentown-Reynolds line continues, with the anticipated route selection, and subsequent right-of-way acquisition, beginning later this year. The projects involve an investment of approximately $500 million for NIPSCO and are anticipated to be in service by the end of 2018.

"With more than $6 billion in investments planned over the next decade, NIPSCO's infrastructure investment programs, as well as the company's continued focus on customer service and economic development, are on track to provide significant benefits to customers and communities across our northern Indiana service territory," Skaggs said.

Gas distribution system modernization, regulatory and customer programs on track

The NiSource Gas Distribution (NGD) companies continue to execute against a long-term inventory of more than $10 billion in infrastructure replacement and enhancement opportunities, paired with the development of complementary customer programs and regulatory initiatives. Year-to-date NGD execution highlights include:

  • Following a record year of successfully implementing almost $800 million in gas distribution system replacement and modernization investments, NiSource's gas utilities are on track to invest approximately $815 million in system modernization and other capital investments during 2014.
  • On April 23, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio approved Columbia Gas of Ohio's (COH) annual infrastructure replacement and demand-side management rider. The rider provides for recovery of COH's well-established pipeline replacement program and customer energy efficiency program investments. 
  • On March 21, Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania (CPA) filed a rate case with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission to support continuation of CPA's ongoing infrastructure modernization program. If approved as filed, the case would increase annual revenues by approximately $54 million. A decision is expected later this year.
  • On February 28, the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities issued an order on the Columbia Gas of Massachusetts base rate case. The order provides for an annual revenue increase of approximately $19 million, and supports the company's current infrastructure modernization and replacement plans.

"Our gas distribution companies continue to steadily execute on a well-established agenda of long-term investments in system reliability, while introducing an array of programs designed to help our customers manage energy use," Skaggs said.

Affirming 2014 earnings guidance, capital investments, financial commitments

In addition to affirming NiSource's full-year earnings outlook of $1.61 to $1.71 per share (non-GAAP), Skaggs noted that the company is on track to execute on a record capital investment program of approximately $2.2 billion during 2014.

The company also continues to solidify its commitment to stable, investment grade credit ratings as Moody's upgraded NiSource's rating to Baa2 and Standard & Poor's reaffirmed NiSource's BBB- /stable rating during the first quarter. Fitch Ratings reaffirmed its rating in late 2013.

There will likely be differences between net operating earnings and GAAP earnings, but due to the unpredictability of weather and other factors, NiSource is continuing its practice of not providing GAAP earnings guidance.

First Quarter 2014 Operating Earnings - Segment Results (non-GAAP)

NiSource's consolidated operating earnings (non-GAAP) for the three months ended March 31, 2014, were $509.1 million, compared to $427.9 million for the same period in 2013. Refer to Schedule 2 for the items included in 2014 and 2013 GAAP operating income but excluded from operating earnings.

Operating earnings for NiSource's business segments for the three months ended March 31, 2014, are discussed below.

Columbia Pipeline Group Operations reported operating earnings of $158.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared with operating earnings of $133.3 million for the prior year period. Net revenues, excluding the impact of trackers, increased by $19.7 million primarily due to higher demand and commodity margin revenue as a result of growth projects and increased mineral rights royalty revenue.

Operating expenses, excluding the impact of trackers, decreased by $3.2 million primarily due to gains on conveyance of mineral interests, which was partially offset by an increase in employee and administrative costs, higher depreciation, and increased property taxes.

Equity earnings increased by $2.7 million primarily from increased earnings at Millennium Pipeline.

Electric Operations reported operating earnings of $74.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared with operating earnings of $64.9 million for the prior year period. Net revenues, excluding the impact of trackers, increased by $18.0 million primarily due to an increase in off-system sales, higher environmental investment cost recovery and increased industrial margins. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in transmission upgrade revenue and lower residential and commercial margins.

Operating expenses, excluding the impact of trackers, increased by $8.7 million due primarily to increased employee and administrative costs.

Gas Distribution Operations reported operating earnings of $280.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared with operating earnings of $233.3 million for the prior year period. Net revenues, excluding the impact of trackers, increased by $54.1 million primarily attributable to increases in regulatory and service programs, including the impact of the rate settlement at Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania and the implementation of new rates under Columbia Gas of Ohio's approved infrastructure replacement program, higher residential and commercial usage, and an increase in off-system sales.

Operating expenses, excluding the impact of trackers, increased by $7.3 million due primarily to increased employee and administrative costs, higher depreciation due to an increase in capital expenditures and increased other taxes. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in outside service costs.

Corporate and Other Operations reported an operating earnings loss of $4.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared to an operating earnings loss of $3.6 million for the comparable prior period.

Other Items

Interest expense increased by $10.5 million due to issuances of long-term debt in April and October 2013. These increases were partially offset by the maturity of long-term debt in March 2013.

Other, net reflected income of $4.5 million compared to income of $4.1 million in 2013.

The effective tax rate of net operating earnings was 36.1 percent compared to 35.4 percent for the same period last year.
