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 PECO service territory were up 13.8 percent from 2011 but were 9.0 percent below normal. Total retail electric deliveries were up 2.3 percent quarter over quarter. On the gas side, deliveries in the fourth quarter of 2012 were up 12.4 percent from the fourth quarter of 2011.

Weather-normalized retail electric deliveries were up 0.6 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 relative to 2011, reflecting increases in deliveries to residential and large consumer & industrial customers and declines in deliveries to small commercial & industrial customers. Weather-normalized gas deliveries were up 0.6 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. For PECO, weather had a favorable after-tax effect of $17 million on fourth quarter 2012 earnings relative to 2011 and unfavorable after-tax effect of $10 million relative to normal weather.

BGE consists of electricity transmission and distribution operations and retail natural gas distribution operations in central Maryland.

BGE’s GAAP net income in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $15 million. The net income included after-tax costs of $3 million associated with the merger and integration initiatives. Excluding the effects of these items, BGE’s adjusted (non-GAAP) Operating Earnings in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $18 million.

Adjusted (non-GAAP) Operating Earnings

Adjusted (non-GAAP) operating earnings, which generally exclude significant one-time charges or credits that are not normally associated with ongoing operations, mark-to-market adjustments from economic hedging activities and unrealized gains and losses from NDT fund investments, are provided as a supplement to results reported in accordance with GAAP. Management uses such adjusted (non-GAAP) operating earnings measures internally to evaluate the company’s performance and manage its operations. Reconciliation of GAAP to adjusted (non-GAAP) operating earnings for historical periods is attached. Additional earnings release attachments, which include the reconciliation on pages 10 and 11 are posted on Exelon’s Web site: www.exeloncorp.com and have been furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 8-K on February 7, 2013.
