UNS Energy Reports 2012 Earnings, Declares Dividend

UNS Energy Corporation (NYSE: UNS) today reported 2012 net income of $90.9 million, or $2.20 per diluted share of common stock, compared with net income of $110.0 million, or $2.75 per diluted share in 2011. TEP reported net income of $65.5 million in 2012, 23 percent below net income of $85.3 million in 2011.

“We achieved all of our key operational and financial objectives in 2012,” said Paul Bonavia, UNS Energy’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We exceeded our safety and service reliability targets and held operating and maintenance costs below our initial 2012 budget, as well as below 2009 levels.”

“And earnings were in the middle of our guidance range, even though we were challenged by slow economic recovery, customer implementation of energy efficiency measures and TEP’s out-dated retail rate structure,” Bonavia said.

In July 2012, TEP submitted an application with the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) seeking the company’s first non-fuel base rate increase since 2008. On February 4, 2013, TEP, ACC Staff and several other parties entered into a rate settlement agreement. Provisions of the settlement include an increase in TEP’s non-fuel revenues of approximately $76 million, as well as rate adjustment mechanisms related to energy efficiency and environmental compliance.

“The proposed settlement agreement is broadly supported by many of our key stakeholder groups. The agreement contains provisions that provide tangible benefits to our customers, while supporting TEP’s long-term financial stability,” Bonavia said.

The ACC must approve the settlement agreement before new rates can become effective. If approved, the average bill for an average residential customer would increase by less than $3 per month.

Retail kWh Sales and Revenues

TEP’s retail kWh sales decreased by 0.7 percent in 2012, due in part to fewer cooling degree days during the summer months compared with 2011. The decrease in retail sales volumes led to a 1.2 percent, or $6.6 million, decrease in TEP’s retail margin revenues compared with 2011.
