Pepco Holdings Reports Third-Quarter 2012 Financial Results; Narrows 2012 Earnings Guidance Range

Earnings Guidance

Pepco Holdings today narrowed its earnings guidance range for 2012 to $1.15 to $1.25 per share from $1.15 to $1.30 per share. The guidance range:

  • excludes the results of discontinued operations and the impact of any special, unusual or extraordinary items,
  • assumes normal weather conditions for the remainder of the year,
  • excludes the net mark-to-market effects of economic hedging activities associated with the retail energy supply business of Pepco Energy Services, and
  • excludes the cost of system restoration following Hurricane Sandy.

Recent Events

Operations

  • On October 29, 2012, Pepco Holdings’ service territories were severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The total incremental cost of system restoration is currently estimated to be approximately $45 million to $65 million, with a portion of the costs being charged to capital expenditures and the balance being expensed or deferred as regulatory assets. This estimate is based on assumptions related to the costs of services provided by third parties, and actual costs may vary from this estimate. Recovery of the incremental system restoration costs will be pursued during the next cycle of distribution rate cases.
  • On June 29, 2012, Pepco Holdings’ service territories were severely impacted by a violent and destructive wind storm. Given the timing of the storm, the impact to second quarter results was negligible, as most of the costs incurred for the restoration effort were recorded in the third quarter. The estimated incremental storm restoration costs are $81 million. Of these costs, $41 million were recorded as capital expenditures, $35 million were deferred as regulatory assets, and $5 million were recorded as operation and maintenance expense. Recovery of the incremental system restoration costs will be pursued during the next cycle of distribution base rate cases.
  • On August 24, 2012, PJM Interconnection, LLC notified Pepco Holdings that it has terminated the Mid-Atlantic Power Pathway (MAPP) project and removed it from its regional transmission expansion plan. The MAPP project was a proposed high voltage 152-mile interstate transmission project designed to improve reliability and provide interconnection to diverse generation sources. As of September 30, 2012, the total capital expenditures for the MAPP project were approximately $101 million. Recovery of expenditures deemed to be abandoned will be sought through a filing to be submitted to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in accordance with terms of the FERC order approving an incentive rate for the MAPP project, including the recovery of prudently incurred abandonment costs.
  • In October 2012, Power Delivery established a forecast of capital expenditures for 2013 through 2017. Total Power Delivery capital expenditures forecasted for the five-year period are $5.9 billion, with $4.6 billion planned for distribution capital expenditures and $1.3 billion planned for transmission capital expenditures.
  • Power Delivery electric sales were 14,371 gigawatt hours (GWh) in the third quarter of 2012, compared to 14,329 GWh for the same period in the prior year. In the electric service territory, cooling degree days decreased by 1 percent for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to the same period in 2011. Weather-adjusted electric sales were 13,802 GWh in the third quarter of 2012, compared to 13,836 GWh for the same period in the prior year.
  • As of September 30, 2012, Delmarva Power’s installation and activation of smart meters in its Delaware electric service territory was complete and Pepco had installed approximately 98 percent of its smart meters in its District of Columbia service territory (89 percent activated) and 60 percent of its smart meters in its Maryland service territory (18 percent activated). On May 8, 2012, the Maryland Public Service Commission (MPSC) authorized Delmarva Power to proceed with the implementation of the smart meters in Maryland; installation is expected to begin by year-end 2012. The respective Public Service Commissions have approved the creation of a regulatory asset to defer Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) costs between rate cases, as well as the accrual of a return on the deferred costs.

Regulatory Matters

  • On October 23, 2012, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) approved a settlement agreement signed by the parties to Atlantic City Electric’s electric distribution base rate case. The settlement provides for an annual increase in electric distribution base rates by the net amount of approximately $28 million, based on a return on equity of 9.75 percent. The net increase consists of a rate increase of approximately $44 million, less a deduction from base rates of approximately $16 million through an excess depreciation rider expected to expire in the third quarter of 2013 that is designed to refund customers certain excess depreciation reserve funds as previously directed by the NJBPU. Upon the expiration of the excess depreciation rider, there will be an increase in cash flow, but not operating income since the increase in revenue will be offset by increased depreciation expense. The new rates became effective November 1, 2012.
  • On October 3, 2012, the Maryland governor forwarded to the MPSC a report issued by his Grid Resiliency Task Force urging the MPSC to quickly implement certain Task Force recommendations that would, among other things, strengthen existing reliability and storm restoration regulations, accelerate reliability improvement investments in the electric distribution system, and allow a surcharge recovery for the accelerated investments. Pepco and Delmarva Power are currently evaluating the report and its recommendations to determine what effect they may have on proposals to be made in future electric distribution base rate cases in Maryland. The form and substance of any such proposals will also depend, in part, on how the MPSC responds to the report and the governor’s request.
  • On September 26, 2012, the District of Columbia Public Service Commission (DCPSC) approved a $24 million annual increase in Pepco’s electric distribution base rates based on a 9.5 percent return on equity. The new rates were effective October 18, 2012. A portion of the rate increase provides for recovery of AMI costs that were previously deferred as a regulatory asset, resulting in an annual increase in amortization expense of $3.3 million for 15 years.
  • On August 17, 2012, Delmarva Power entered into a proposed settlement agreement with parties to its electric distribution base rate case in Delaware, including the Delaware Public Service Commission (DPSC) Staff and the Public Advocate. The settlement provides for a $22 million annual increase in Delmarva Power’s electric distribution base rates and a stated return on equity of 9.75 percent. As permitted by Delaware law, Delmarva Power implemented interim rate increases of $2.5 million on January 31, 2012 and $22.3 million on July 3, 2012. The excess amount collected will be returned to customers. The proposed settlement agreement also provides for the phased-in recovery of $40 million of AMI costs that were previously deferred as a regulatory asset. On October 23, 2012, the Hearing Examiner issued a report recommending approval of the settlement agreement. The settlement agreement is subject to final review and approval by the DPSC. A decision is expected by year-end 2012.

Cross-Border Energy Leases

  • On September 25, 2012, at the request of the lessees, Pepco Holdings completed the early termination of one of the seven cross-border lease investments. Pepco Holdings received net proceeds of $202 million and recorded an after-tax gain of $9 million. The current annual tax benefits from the remaining cross-border energy lease investments are approximately $43 million and the annual net earnings are approximately $25 million. As of September 30, 2012, the equity investment in the cross-border energy leases was $1.2 billion.
