PG&E Corporation Reports First-Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Recorded GAAP earnings were $0.22 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2022, compared to earnings of $0.06 per diluted share for the same period in 2021.
Non-GAAP core earnings were $0.30 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2022, compared to earnings of $0.23 per diluted share for the same period in 2021.
2022 EPS guidance adjusted for GAAP earnings in the range of $0.85 to $1.16 per diluted share and reaffirmed non-GAAP core earnings in the range of $1.07 to $1.13 per diluted share.

OAKLAND — PG&E Corporation (NYSE: PCG) recorded first-quarter 2022 income available for common shareholders of $475 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, as reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). This compares with income available for common shareholders of $120 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2021.

GAAP results include non-core items that management does not consider representative of ongoing earnings, which totaled $164 million after tax, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the quarter. These results were primarily driven by costs related to the amortization of Wildfire Fund contributions under Assembly Bill (AB) 1054, investigation remedies, wildfire-related costs, prior period net regulatory impact, and PG&E Corporation’s and Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (Utility) reorganization cases under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (Chapter 11), partially offset by the Fire Victim Trust tax benefits.

“PG&E’s unified, mission-driven team is focused every day on our Triple Bottom Line of People, the Planet, and California’s Prosperity,” said Patti Poppe, CEO of PG&E Corporation. “We plan to deliver operational and financial results through a culture of performance – mitigating risks, identifying cost-saving opportunities, and keeping customer bills affordable.”

Non-GAAP Core Earnings

PG&E Corporation’s non-GAAP core earnings, which exclude non-core items, were $639 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2022, compared with $487 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, during the same period in 2021.

The increase in quarter-over-quarter non-GAAP core earnings per diluted share was primarily driven by cost reduction, growth in rate base earnings, and timing of taxes.




PG&E Corporation uses “non-GAAP core earnings,” which is a non-GAAP financial measure, in order to provide a measure that allows investors to compare the underlying financial performance of the business from one period to another, exclusive of non-core items. See the accompanying tables for a reconciliation of non-GAAP core earnings to consolidated earnings available for common shareholders.

2022 Guidance

PG&E Corporation is adjusting 2022 GAAP earnings guidance in the range of $0.85 to $1.16 per diluted share, which includes non-core items. PG&E Corporation is adjusting 2022 non-core items guidance in the range of $(70) million to $450 million after tax, reflecting costs related to the amortization of Wildfire Fund contributions under AB1054, PG&E Corporation’s and Utility’s reorganization cases under Chapter 11, investigation remedies, and wildfire-related costs, partially offset by rate neutral securitization and Fire Victim Trust tax benefits and prior period net regulatory impact.

On a non-GAAP basis, the guidance range for projected 2022 non-GAAP core earnings is reaffirmed at $1.07 to $1.13 per diluted share. Factors driving non-GAAP core earnings include unrecoverable interest expense of $330 million to $370 million after tax and other earnings factors, including allowance for funds used during construction (AFUDC) equity, incentive revenues, tax benefits, and cost savings, net of below-the-line costs.

Guidance is based on various assumptions and forecasts, including those relating to authorized revenues, future expenses, capital expenditures, rate base, equity issuances, rate neutral securitization, and certain other factors.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
PG&E Corporation and Pacific Gas and Electric Company


PG&E Corporation discloses historical financial results and provides guidance based on “non-GAAP core earnings” and “non-GAAP core EPS” in order to provide a measure that allows investors to compare the underlying financial performance of the business from one period to another, exclusive of non-core items.

“Non-GAAP core earnings” is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated as income available for common shareholders less non-core items. “Non-core items” include items that management does not consider representative of ongoing earnings and affect comparability of financial results between periods, consisting of the items listed in the table included in "Reconciliation of PG&E Corporation’s Consolidated Earnings Available for Common Shareholders in Accordance with GAAP to Non-GAAP Core Earnings First Quarter, 2022 vs. 2021". “Non-GAAP core EPS,” also referred to as “non-GAAP core earnings per share,” is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated as non-GAAP core earnings divided by common shares outstanding (taken on a basic basis in the event of a GAAP loss and a diluted basis in the event of a GAAP gain). PG&E Corporation and the Utility use non-GAAP core earnings and non-GAAP core EPS to understand and compare operating results across reporting periods for various purposes including internal budgeting and forecasting, short- and long-term operating planning, and employee incentive compensation. PG&E Corporation and the Utility believe that non-GAAP core earnings and non-GAAP core EPS provide additional insight into the underlying trends of the business, allowing for a better comparison against historical results and expectations for future performance. With respect to our projection of non-GAAP core EPS for the years 2023-2026, we are not providing a reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP measures because we are unable to predict with reasonable certainty the reconciling items that may affect GAAP net income without unreasonable effort. The reconciling items are primarily due to the future impact of wildfire-related costs, timing of regulatory recoveries, special tax items, and investigation remedies. These reconciling items are uncertain, depend on various factors and could significantly impact, either individually or in the aggregate, the GAAP measures.
Non-GAAP core earnings and non-GAAP core EPS are not substitutes or alternatives for GAAP measures such as consolidated income available for common shareholders and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

2022 FIRST QUARTER EARNINGS April 28, 2022


 
® 2 This presentation contains statements regarding management’s expectations and objectives for future periods (including key factors affecting 2022 non-GAAP core earnings) as well as forecasts and estimates regarding PG&E Corporation’s and Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (the “Utility”) 2022 W ildfire Mitigation Plan, rate base projections, capital expenditure forecasts, expense reduction forecasts and regulatory developments.

PG&E Corporation’s management generally does not use Adjusted EBITDA in managing i ts business. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as PG&E Corporation’s net income plus income tax provision (or less income tax benefit); less o ther income, net; plus interest expense; less interest income; plus depreciation, amortization, and decommissioning; plus Wildfire Fund expense; plus wildfire-related costs, net of insurance; plus prior period net regulatory impact; and plus investigation remedies. Adjusted EBITDA is not a substitute or alternative for GAAP measures, such as net income, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. See above for a reconciliation of GAAP net income to non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA. Exhibit E: GAAP Net Income to Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation PG&E Corporation First Quarter, 2022 vs. 2021


 
® 37 Exhibit F: Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures PG&E Corporation and Pacific Gas and Electric Company: Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures PG&E Corporation discloses historical financial results and provides guidance based on “non-GAAP core earnings” and “non-GAAP core EPS” in order to provide a measure that allows investors to compare the underlying financial performance of the business from one period to another, exclusive of non-core items. “Non-GAAP core earnings” is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated as income available for common shareholders less non-core items. “Non-core items” include items that management does not consider representative of ongoing earnings and affect comparability of financial results between periods, consisting of the items listed in Exhibit A. “Non-GAAP core EPS,” also referred to as “non-GAAP core earnings per share,” is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated as non-GAAP core earnings divided by common shares outstanding (taken on a basic basis in the event of a GAAP loss and a diluted basis in the event of a GAAP gain). PG&E Corporation and the Utility use non-GAAP core earnings and non-GAAP core EPS to understand and compare operating results across reporting periods for various purposes including internal budgeting and forecasting, short- and long-term operating planning, and employee incentive compensation. PG&E Corporation and the Utility believe that non-GAAP core earnings and non-GAAP core EPS provide additional insight into the underlying trends of the business, allowing for a better comparison against historical results and expectations for future performance. With respect to our projection of non-GAAP core EPS for the years 2023-2026, we are not providing a reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP measures because we are unable to predict with reasonable certainty the reconciling items that may affect GAAP net income without unreasonable effort. The reconciling items are primarily due to the future impact of wildfire-related costs, timing of regulatory recoveries, special tax items, and investigation remedies. These reconciling items are uncertain, depend on various factors and could significantly impact, either individually or in the aggregate, the GAAP measures. Non-GAAP core earnings and non-GAAP core EPS are not substitutes or alternatives for GAAP measures such as consolidated income available for common shareholders and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.
