Exelon Announces Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Results; Introduces 2013 Guidance; Declares First Quarter Dividend And Sets Revised Dividend Policy

For the fourth quarter of 2012, heating degree-days in the ComEd service territory were up 10.8 percent relative to the same period in 2011 but were 11.5 percent below normal. Total retail electric deliveries increased 0.4 percent quarter over quarter.

Weather-normalized retail electric deliveries decreased 0.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 relative to 2011, reflecting decreases in deliveries to residential and large commercial & industrial customers, partially offset by increases in deliveries to small commercial & industrial customers. For ComEd, weather had a favorable after-tax effect of $1 million on fourth quarter 2012 earnings relative to 2011 and an unfavorable after-tax effect of $4 million relative to normal weather.

PECO consists of electricity transmission and distribution operations and retail natural gas distribution operations in southeastern Pennsylvania.

PECO’s GAAP net income in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $79 million, compared with $73 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Adjusted (non-GAAP) Operating Earnings for the fourth quarter of 2011 and 2012 do not include an item (after tax) that was included in reported GAAP earnings. A reconciliation of Adjusted (non-GAAP) Operating Earnings to GAAP Net Income is in the table below:

($ millions)   4Q12   4Q11
PECO Adjusted (non-GAAP) Operating Earnings   $81   $74
Constellation Merger and Integration Costs   $(2)   $(1)
PECO GAAP Net Income   $79   $73

PECO’s Adjusted (non-GAAP) Operating Earnings in the fourth quarter of 2012 increased $7 million from the same quarter in 2011, reflecting the impact of favorable weather and lower income taxes primarily due to gas tax repairs deduction; these favorable items were partially offset by higher storm costs from Sandy.
