Edison International Reports Fourth Quarter And Full-Year 2013 Results

Edison International (NYSE: EIX) today reported full-year 2013 net income attributable to common shareholders of $915 million, or $2.81 per share, compared to losses of $183 million, or $0.56 per share, in the full-year of 2012.

“Edison International's 2013 earnings were driven by Southern California Edison's electric infrastructure investments and operational efficiencies,” said Ted Craver, chairman and chief executive officer of Edison International. “Higher levels of infrastructure investments are needed to support grid reliability, while contributing to our expectation that core earnings in 2014 will be in the range of $3.60 to $3.80 per share.”

Full-year 2013 results included $322 million, or $0.99 per share, of net charges and losses from discontinued operations, which are not considered part of core earnings. Adjusting for these net charges, Edison International earned $1,237 million, or $3.80 per share, of core earnings in 2013. Full-year 2012 results included $1,461 million, or $4.48 per share, of net non-core charges and losses from discontinued operations that, when adjusted, result in core earnings of $1,278 million, or $3.92 per share. Southern California Edison's 2013 core earnings decreased $73 million, or $0.22 per share, primarily due to lower income tax benefits and the impact from ceasing to record a return on rate base for San Onofre after the decision to permanently retire the plant, partially offset by lower incremental inspection and repair costs at San Onofre and lower operating costs. The earnings increase from rate base growth was offset by the lower authorized 2013 return on common equity.

For the fourth quarter of 2013 Edison International reported net income attributable to common shareholders of $301 million, or $0.92 per share, compared to losses of $539 million, or $1.65 per share, in 2012.

Fourth quarter 2013 results included $37 million, or $0.11 per share, of earnings from discontinued operations, which are not considered part of core earnings. Adjusting for earnings from discontinued operations, Edison International earned $264 million, or $0.81 per share, of core earnings in the fourth quarter of 2013. Fourth quarter 2012 results included $1,121 million, or $3.44 per share, of net charges and losses from discontinued operations resulting in core earnings of $582 million, or $1.79 per share. Southern California Edison's core earnings decreased $344 million, or $1.06 per share, due to the delay of the 2012 CPUC general rate case decision, which resulted in recognizing a full year of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2012, higher income taxes and the impact from ceasing to record a return on rate base for San Onofre after the decision to permanently retire the plant. Partially offsetting these decreases were lower operating and maintenance expenses and incremental inspection and repair costs at San Onofre. The earnings increase from the rate base growth for the quarter was offset by the lower authorized 2013 return on common equity.
