Earnings GuidanceWe expect our full-year 2013 earnings to be within the range of $1.26 to $1.43 per share. Our 2013 guidance range assumes 30-year average weather, modest overall system energy growth, seven months of increased customer electric rates from our pending Missouri rate case, and increased operating costs due to compliance requirements. Other factors that may impact earnings include results of our pending Missouri electric rate case that could differ from our assumptions, the ongoing recovery and redevelopment in the tornado-impacted area of Joplin, Missouri, variations in customer usage projections and unanticipated or unplanned events that may impact operating and maintenance costs. The effects of assumptions and other factors evaluated for the purpose of providing guidance are not necessarily independent of one another, and the combination of effects can cause individual impacts smaller or larger than the indicated guidance range.
