Edison International Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

Edison International (NYSE: EIX) today reported third quarter 2012 basic earnings of $0.58 per share, compared to basic earnings of $1.31 per share in the same quarter last year. Third quarter 2012 core earnings were $0.72 per share, compared to core earnings of $1.26 per share in the third quarter of 2011.

The decrease in earnings was primarily related to losses at Edison Mission Group (EMG) and to a delay in the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) final decision on Southern California Edison’s (SCE) 2012 General Rate Case. SCE incurred higher costs in the quarter to support its ongoing infrastructure investment programs, while the increased revenues to support these investment programs are pending the rate case decision from California regulators.

“SCE’s third quarter results reflect the delay in receiving a final rate case decision from California regulators, as well as severance and continued inspection and repair costs related to the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station,” said Ted Craver, chairman and chief executive officer of Edison International. “A final rate case decision is an important part of moving forward with SCE’s capital program to invest in California’s electric infrastructure and provide safe, reliable, and affordable power.”

Third Quarter Earnings Detail

SCE’s third quarter 2012 basic and core earnings were $1.11 per share compared to $1.25 per share in the third quarter of 2011. The core earnings decrease was primarily due to a delay in the 2012 General Rate Case decision as higher depreciation and interest expenses are not being recovered in currently authorized revenue, and to higher costs at San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. These include $(0.09) per share of incremental steam generator inspection and repair costs and $(0.06) per share in severance costs, which are both included in core earnings. These costs were partially offset by other operating and maintenance cost reductions. The General Rate Case revenue requirement ultimately adopted by the CPUC will be retroactive to January 1, 2012.
