Aug 04, 2011, 07:30 ET from Progress Energy

RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Progress Energy (NYSE: PGN) announced second-quarter GAAP earnings of $176 million, or $0.60 per share, compared with GAAP earnings of $180 million, or $0.62 per share, for the same period last year. Second-quarter ongoing earnings were $211 million, or $0.71 per share, compared to $181 million, or $0.63 per share, for the same period last year. The significant drivers in ongoing earnings per share were lower depreciation and amortization expense in Florida and increased clauses and other margin, partially offset by unfavorable retail growth and usage in the Carolinas and decreased wholesale revenues in Florida. (See the discussion later in this release for a reconciliation of ongoing earnings per share to GAAP earnings per share.)

"Favorable weather in the second quarter, coupled with continued financial discipline within the company, helped us successfully deliver on our earnings per share goal for the first half of the year," said Bill Johnson, Progress Energy chairman, president and CEO. "We continue to feel the effects of a challenging economy in our service area, but we remain focused on managing the business effectively and making wise investments to meet our customers' needs today and in the future, as we prepare for our pending merger with Duke Energy."

Progress Energy reaffirms 2011 ongoing earnings guidance of $3.00 to $3.20 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 (the Merger). Progress Energy is not able to provide a corresponding GAAP equivalent for the 2011 ongoing earnings guidance due to the uncertain nature and amount of these adjustments.

Progress Energy will host a conference call and webcast at 10 a.m. ET today to review second-quarter 2011 financial performance, as well as provide an overall business update. Additional details are provided at the end of this earnings release.

See the second-quarter 2011 business highlights for detailed earnings variance analyses for the Progress Energy Carolinas (PEC), Progress Energy Florida (PEF) and Corporate and Other Businesses segments.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Duke Energy – Progress Energy Merger

  • Received conditional approval of the Merger from the Kentucky Public Service Commission, which is subject to acceptance by Duke Energy and Progress Energy.
  • Entered into a memorandum of understanding to settle a lawsuit that is a consolidation of nine class action lawsuits filed on behalf of Progress Energy's shareholders regarding the Merger, subject to court approval.
  • Received approval from the Federal Communications Commission of the Assignment of Authorization filings to transfer control of radio system licenses.

  • The Merger is targeted to close by the end of 2011.

Financial and Regulatory

  • Received approval from the Public Service Commission of South Carolina to recover increased costs in two components of customer rates: fuel used in electricity generation and investments in energy-efficiency (EE) and demand-side management (DSM) programs. New rates were effective July 1, 2011.
  • Filed with the North Carolina Utilities Commission to recover increased costs in three components of customer rates: fuel used in electricity generation, investments in EE programs, and renewable energy. If approved, rates would be effective December 1, 2011.

Power System

  • Filed a status update with the Florida Public Service Commission (FPSC) regarding Crystal River Nuclear Plant (CR3), which outlined the selection of a repair option, the estimated repair costs, the estimated time it will take to bring CR3 back into commercial service, based on the company's initial review, and a discussion of PEF's ability to satisfy its projected loads using existing capacity resources. The procedural schedule for the prudence review is still pending.
  • Received notification from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that our improved performance at the Robinson Nuclear Plant will result in decreased agency oversight. Robinson will continue to work their strategic improvement plan and take definitive steps to return the plant to top industry performance while achieving safe and predictable plant operations.
  • Placed in service newly constructed 600-megawatt (MW) combined-cycle natural gas plant at the Richmond County Energy Complex near Hamlet, North Carolina. The approximately $575 million project was completed on schedule and under budget.

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. 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.

Contingent Value Obligation (CVO) Mark-to-Market

In connection with the acquisition of Florida Progress Corporation, Progress Energy issued 98.6 million CVOs. Each CVO represents 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 unrealized gains and losses from changes in fair value are recognized in earnings each quarter. 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.

Change in the Tax Treatment of the Medicare Part D Subsidy

The federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the related Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, which made various amendments to the PPACA, were enacted in March 2010. Under prior law, employers could claim a deduction for the entire cost of providing retiree prescription drug coverage even though a portion of the cost was offset by the retiree drug subsidy received. As a result of the PPACA, as amended, retiree drug subsidy payments will effectively become taxable in tax years beginning after December 31, 2012, by requiring the amount of the subsidy received to be offset against the employer's deduction. Under GAAP, changes in tax law are accounted for in the period of enactment. Management does not consider this item to be representative of the company's fundamental core earnings.

Impairment

The company has recorded impairments of certain miscellaneous investments. 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 of nonregulated businesses to reduce its business risk and focus on core operations of the Utilities. Management does not consider this item to be representative of the company's fundamental core earnings.

Merger and Integration Costs

The company recorded a charge 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.

CR3 Indemnification Charge

The company recorded a CR3 indemnification charge for estimated future years' joint owner replacement power costs (through the expiration of the indemnification provisions of the joint owner agreement) because GAAP requires that the charge be accounted for in the period in which it becomes probable and estimable rather than the periods to which it relates. Management does not consider this item to be representative of the company's fundamental core earnings.
