American States Water Company Announces
Second Quarter 2022 Results
$0.18 per share decrease in recorded second quarter consolidated diluted EPS compared to second quarter of 2021, or $0.02 per share increase as adjusted

Quarter results reflect an unfavorable variance of $0.10 per share from losses on investments held to fund a retirement plan

Quarter results also reflect 2021 water rates. 2022 water rates, if approved as settled, would be retroactive to January 1, 2022 and add $0.10 per share to the quarter.

8.9% increase in quarterly dividend for September 1 dividend payment

San Dimas, California, August 1, 2022…. American States Water Company (NYSE:AWR) today reported basic and fully diluted earnings per share of $0.54 for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, as compared to basic and fully diluted earnings per share of $0.72 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, a decrease of $0.18 per share.

Included in the results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 were losses on investments held to fund one of the company's retirement plans totaling $3.5 million, or $0.07 per share, as compared to gains of $1.6 million, or $0.03 per share, for the same period in 2021, a net decrease in consolidated earnings of $0.10 per share due to financial market conditions. Furthermore, due to the delay in receiving a final decision from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) on the pending water general rate case at AWR’s regulated water utility segment, Golden State Water Company (GSWC), to set new rates beginning in 2022, water revenues billed and recorded for the second quarter of 2022 were based on 2021 adopted rates, pending a final decision. When approved, the new water rates will be retroactive to January 1, 2022 and cumulative adjustments will be recorded in the quarter in which the new rates are approved by the CPUC. Had the new 2022 water rates been approved by the CPUC and implemented on January 1, 2022 consistent with the settlement agreement discussed immediately below, GSWC would have recorded additional revenues of $7.7 million, or $0.15 per share, and additional water supply costs of $2.7 million, or $0.05 per share, which together is $0.10 per share higher than what was recorded for the second quarter of 2022. Excluding the gains and losses on investments from both periods, and including the additional revenues and water supply costs caused from the delay in the water general rate case in the results for the second quarter of 2022, adjusted consolidated diluted earnings for the second quarter of 2022 were $0.71 per share as compared to adjusted diluted earnings of $0.69 per share for the same period in 2021, an adjusted increase of $0.02 per share.

In November 2021, GSWC and the Public Advocates Office at the CPUC (Public Advocates) filed a joint motion with the CPUC to adopt a settlement agreement between GSWC and Public Advocates on the general rate case application that will set new rates for the years 2022 through 2024. The settlement agreement, if approved, resolves all issues related to the 2022 annual revenue requirement and results in an increase in the 2022 adopted revenues of $30.3 million as compared to the 2021 adopted revenues, and an increase in the 2022 adopted supply costs of $9.7 million as compared to the 2021 adopted supply costs.










Second Quarter 2022 Results

The table below sets forth a comparison of the second quarter 2022 diluted earnings per share contribution recorded by business segment with the same period in 2021.
 Diluted Earnings per Share

Water$0.40 $0.57 $(0.17)
Electric0.04 0.04 — 
Contracted services0.10 0.11 (0.01)
Consolidated fully diluted earnings per share, as reported$0.54 $0.72 $(0.18)
Water Segment:
For the three months ended June 30, 2022, recorded diluted earnings from the water utility segment were $0.40 per share, as compared to $0.57 per share for the same period in 2021, a decrease of $0.17 per share. As discussed above, the decrease was due in part to the losses incurred on investments held to fund one of the company’s retirement plans as compared to gains for the same period in 2021 due to financial market conditions. This item alone decreased the water segment’s earnings for the three months ended June 30, 2022 by $0.10 per share as compared to the same period in 2021. In addition and as previously discussed, had the new 2022 water rates been approved by the CPUC and implemented on January 1, 2022, GSWC would have recorded additional revenues of $7.7 million, or $0.15 per share, and additional water supply costs of $2.7 million, or $0.05 per share, which together is $0.10 per share higher than recorded for the second quarter of 2022. Excluding the gains and losses on investments from both periods, and including the additional revenues and water supply costs caused from the delay in the water general rate case, adjusted diluted earnings for the second quarter of 2022 at the water segment were $0.57 per share as compared to adjusted diluted earnings of $0.54 per share for the same period in 2021, an adjusted increase at the water segment of $0.03 per share, or 5.6%.

Finally, for the three months ended June 30, 2022, GSWC recorded a reduction to revenues of $1.7 million, or $0.03 per share, to reflect management’s best estimate at this time of revenues subject to refund from the pending cost of capital proceeding filed in May 2021, which includes primarily the impact of GSWC’s lower cost of debt requested in its application. However, at this time, management cannot predict the ultimate outcome of the cost of capital application and the associated impact on 2022 revenues. Changes in estimates will be made, if necessary, as more information in this proceeding becomes available. A proposed decision on this proceeding is expected in the second half of 2022.

Excluding only the gains and losses on investments from both periods discussed above, adjusted diluted earnings at the water segment for the second quarter of 2022 were $0.47 per share, as compared to adjusted earnings of $0.54 per share for the second quarter of 2021, an adjusted decrease of $0.07 per share due primarily to the following items:

A decrease in water operating revenues of $777,000 largely as a result of the lower cost of debt included in the pending May 2021 cost of capital application. This decrease was partially offset by an increase in revenues from advice letter projects that became effective February 15, 2022, as well as mid-year increases implemented in July 2021 to reflect higher water supply costs. Due to regulatory mechanisms in place for water supply costs, the increase in operating revenues includes the full recovery of the increases in supply costs discussed below. As discussed, water revenues billed and recorded during the second quarter of 2022 were based on 2021 adopted rates, pending a final decision by the CPUC on the general rate case application.

An increase in water supply costs of $672,000, which consist of purchased water, purchased power for pumping, groundwater production assessments and changes in the water supply cost balancing accounts. Adopted supply costs for the second quarter of 2022 were based on 2021 authorized amounts, pending a final decision by the CPUC in the water general rate case application. Actual water supply costs are tracked and passed through to customers on a dollar-for-dollar basis by way of the CPUC-approved water supply cost balancing accounts. The increase in water supply costs results in a corresponding increase in water operating revenues and has no net impact on the water segment’s profitability.

An overall increase in operating expenses of $1.6 million (excluding supply costs), which negatively impacted earnings and was mainly due to increases in water treatment costs, conservation spending, insurance, depreciation and maintenance expenses, partially offset by regulatory costs and other outside services.




An overall increase in other income (net of other expenses) of $1.1 million due primarily from a decrease in the non-service cost components related to GSWC's benefit plans resulting from lower actuarial losses recognized during the second quarter of 2022 compared to the same period in 2021. The change in interest expense (net of interest income) at the water segment was not material.

An increase in the effective income tax rate, which negatively impacted net earnings at the water segment. The increase resulted primarily from changes in certain flow-through and permanent items. As a regulated utility, GSWC treats certain temporary differences as flow-through in computing its income tax expense consistent with the income tax method used in its CPUC-jurisdiction ratemaking. Changes in the magnitude of flow-through items either increase or decrease tax expense, thereby affecting diluted earnings per share.

Electric Segment:
Diluted earnings from the electric utility segment were $0.04 per share for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021. An increase in electric operating revenues resulting from CPUC-approved rate increases effective January 1, 2022 and a lower effective income tax rate at the electric segment due to changes in flow-through taxes were mostly offset by higher interest expense. In April 2022, Bear Valley Electric Service, Inc. (BVESI) completed the issuance of $35.0 million in unsecured private placement notes consisting of 10 and 15 year term notes. BVESI used the proceeds to pay down all outstanding borrowings under its credit facility as required by the CPUC. Borrowings under the credit facility bear lower short-term rates.

Contracted Services Segment:
Diluted earnings from the contracted services segment decreased $0.01 per share for the second quarter of 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021, largely due to a decrease in construction activity resulting from timing differences of when such work was performed as compared to the same period of 2021, as well as a slowdown caused by longer materials supply chain lead-times, weather conditions and other delays. This decrease was partially offset by an increase in management fees. The contracted services segment is expected to contribute $0.45 to $0.49 per share for the full 2022 year.

Year-To-Date (YTD) 2022 Results

$0.32 per share decrease in recorded YTD 2022 consolidated diluted EPS compared to YTD 2021, or $0.01 per share increase as adjusted

YTD 2022 results reflect an unfavorable variance of $0.14 per share from losses on investments held to fund a retirement plan

YTD 2022 results also reflect 2021 water rates. 2022 water rates, if approved as settled, would be retroactive to January 1, 2022 and add $0.19 per share to the YTD 2022 results.

Fully diluted earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2022 were $0.92 per share as compared to $1.24 per share recorded for the same period in 2021, a $0.32 per share decrease. Included in the results for the six months ended June 30, 2022 were losses of $5.2 million, or $0.10 per share, incurred on investments held to fund one of the company’s retirement plans, as compared to gains of $2.2 million, or $0.04 per share, for the same period in 2021, a net decrease in earnings of $0.14 per share due to financial market conditions. Furthermore and as previously discussed, due to the delay in finalizing the water general rate case, water revenues billed and recorded for the first half of 2022 were based on 2021 adopted rates, pending a final decision by the CPUC in this general rate case application. Had the new 2022 water rates been approved by the CPUC and implemented on January 1, 2022, GSWC would have recorded additional revenues of $14.0 million, or $0.27 per share, and additional water supply costs of $4.3 million, or $0.08 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2022, which together is $0.19 per share higher than recorded for the first half of 2022.

Excluding the gains and losses on investments from both periods, and including the additional revenues and water supply costs caused from the delay in the water general rate case in the results for the first half of 2022, adjusted consolidated diluted earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2022 were $1.21 per share as compared to adjusted diluted earnings of $1.20 per share for the same period in 2021, an adjusted increase of $0.01 per share.











The table below sets forth a comparison of diluted earnings per share contribution by business segment and for the parent company as recorded during the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021.

Water Segment:
For the six months ended June 30, 2022, recorded diluted earnings from the water utility segment were $0.63 per share, as compared to $0.90 per share for the same period in 2021, a decrease of $0.27 per share. As discussed above, the decrease was due in part to the losses incurred on investments held to fund one of the company’s retirement plans as compared to gains for the same period in 2021 due to financial market conditions. This item alone decreased the water segment’s earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2022 by $0.14 per share as compared to the same period in 2021. In addition and as previously discussed, had the new 2022 water rates been approved by the CPUC and implemented on January 1, 2022, GSWC would have recorded additional revenues of $14.0 million, or $0.27 per share, and additional water supply costs of $4.3 million, or $0.08 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2022, which together is $0.19 per share higher than recorded during the first half of 2022. Excluding the gains and losses on investments from both periods, and including the additional revenues and water supply costs caused from the delay in the water general rate case in the water segment’s results for the first half of 2022, adjusted diluted earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2022 at the water segment were $0.92 per share as compared to adjusted diluted earnings of $0.86 per share for the same period in 2021, an adjusted increase at the water segment of $0.06 per share, or 7% increase.

Finally, for the six months ended June 30, 2022, GSWC recorded a reduction to revenues of $3.1 million, or $0.06 per share, to reflect management’s best estimate at this time of revenues subject to refund from the pending cost of capital proceeding filed in May 2021, which includes primarily the impact of GSWC’s lower cost of debt requested in its application. However, at this time, management cannot predict the ultimate outcome of the cost of capital application and the associated impact on 2022 revenues. Changes in estimates will be made, if necessary, as more information in this proceeding becomes available. A proposed decision on this proceeding is expected in the second half of 2022.

Excluding only the gains and losses on investments from both periods discussed above, adjusted diluted earnings at the water segment for the first half of 2022 were $0.73 per share, as compared to adjusted earnings of $0.86 per share for the first half of 2021, an adjusted decrease of $0.13 per share due to the following items:

A decrease in water operating revenues of $1.9 million largely as a result of the lower cost of debt included in the pending May 2021 cost of capital application. This decrease was partially offset by an increase in revenues from advice letter projects that became effective February 15, 2022, as well as mid-year increases implemented in July 2021 to reflect higher water supply costs. Due to regulatory mechanisms in place for water supply costs, the increase in operating revenues includes the full recovery of the increases in supply costs discussed below. As discussed, water revenues billed and recorded for the first half of 2022 were based on 2021 adopted rates, pending a final decision by the CPUC on the general rate case application.

Actual water supply costs are tracked and passed through to customers on a dollar-for-dollar basis by way of the CPUC-approved water supply cost balancing accounts. The increase in water supply costs results in a corresponding increase in water operating revenues and has no net impact on the water segment’s profitability.

An overall increase in operating expenses of $4.1 million (excluding supply costs), which negatively impacted earnings and was mainly due to increases in water treatment costs, conservation spending, insurance, depreciation and maintenance expenses, partially offset by regulatory costs and other outside services.

A decrease in interest expense (net of interest income) of $712,000 resulting primarily from lower overall borrowing rates due to the early redemption of GSWC's 9.56% private placement notes in the amount of



$28 million in May 2021, partially offset by an overall increase in total borrowing levels to support, among other things, GSWC’s capital expenditures program.

An overall increase in other income (net of other expenses) of $2.1 million due primarily from a decrease in the non-service cost components related to GSWC's benefit plans resulting from lower actuarial losses recognized during the first six months of 2022 compared to the same period in 2021.

An increase in the effective income tax rate, which negatively impacted net earnings at the water segment. The increase resulted primarily from changes in certain flow-through and permanent items. As a regulated utility, GSWC treats certain temporary differences as flow-through in computing its income tax expense consistent with the income tax method used in its CPUC-jurisdiction ratemaking.

Electric Segment:
Diluted earnings from the electric utility segment increased $0.02 per share for the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021, largely due to an increase in electric operating revenues resulting from CPUC-approved rate increases effective January 1, 2022 and a lower effective income tax rate at the electric segment due to changes in flow-through taxes, partially offset by higher interest expense.

Contracted Services Segment:
Diluted earnings from the contracted services segment decreased $0.06 per share for the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021, largely due to a decrease in construction activity resulting from timing differences of when such work was performed as compared to the same period of 2021, as well as a slowdown caused by longer materials supply chain lead-times, weather conditions and other delays. This decrease was partially offset by an increase in management fees. The contracted services segment is expected to contribute $0.45 to $0.49 per share for the full 2022 year.

AWR (Parent):
For the six months ended June 30, 2022, diluted earnings from AWR (parent) decreased $0.01 per share compared to the same period in 2021 due primarily to changes in state unitary taxes.

Dividends
On July 26, 2022, AWR's Board of Directors approved an 8.9% increase in the third quarter dividend, from $0.3650 per share to $0.3975 per share on AWR's Common Shares. With this increase, the quarterly dividend rate has grown at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.3% over the last five years. Dividends on the Common Shares will be paid on September 1, 2022 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 15, 2022. AWR has paid common dividends every year since 1931, and has increased the dividends received by shareholders each calendar year for 68 consecutive years, which places it in an exclusive group of companies on the New York Stock Exchange that have achieved that result. The company has achieved a 9.2% CAGR in its calendar year dividend payments from 2012–2022. AWR's current policy is to achieve a CAGR in the dividend of more than 7% over the long-term.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes a discussion on AWR’s operations in terms of diluted earnings per share by business segment, which is each business segment’s earnings divided by the company’s weighted average number of diluted common shares. Furthermore, the gains and losses generated on the investments held to fund one of the company's retirement plans during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 have been excluded when communicating the results to help facilitate comparisons of the company’s performance from period to period. Also, the retroactive impact of new 2022 water rates not yet recorded due to the delay in receiving a final decision from the CPUC, which will be retroactive to January 1, 2022 when approved, have been included when communicating the company’s consolidated and water segment results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 to help facilitate comparisons of the company’s performance from period to period. All of these measures are derived from consolidated financial information but are not presented in our financial statements that are prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) in the United States. These items constitute "non-GAAP financial measures" under Securities and Exchange Commission rules, which supplement our GAAP disclosures but should not be considered as an alternative to the respective GAAP measures. Furthermore, the non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures of other registrants.

The company uses earnings per share by business segment as an important measure in evaluating its operating results and believes this measure is a useful internal benchmark in evaluating the performance of its operating segments. The company reviews this measurement regularly and compares it to historical periods and to the



operating budget. The company has provided the computations and reconciliations of diluted earnings per share from the measure of operating income by business segment to AWR’s consolidated fully diluted earnings per share in this press release.

Forward-Looking Statements
Certain matters discussed in this press release with regard to the company’s expectations may be forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. The assumptions and risk factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include those described in the company’s most recent Form 10-Q and Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.


Conference Call
Robert Sprowls, president and chief executive officer, and Eva Tang, senior vice president and chief financial officer, will host a conference call to discuss these results at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time (11:00 a.m. Pacific Time) on Tuesday, August 2. There will be a question and answer session as part of the call. Interested parties can listen to the live conference call and view accompanying slides on the internet at www.aswater.com.
