Dynegy Inc. (NYSE: DYN) reported a net loss of $296 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared to a net loss of $803 million for the second quarter of 2016. Results for the most recent quarter were impacted by positive contributions from assets acquired from ENGIE (ENGIE assets) in February 2017 and a non-cash asset impairment related to certain coal facilities in MISO. Results for the second quarter of 2016 were negatively impacted by a non-cash asset impairment charge related to the retirement of certain generation units last year.

The Company reported consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of $240 million for the 2017 second quarter compared to $187 million for the 2016 second quarter as the positive contribution from the ENGIE assets and higher capacity revenues in the MISO and IPH segments more than offset lower energy margins in PJM.

Net income for the first half of 2017 was $300 million compared to a net loss of $813 million for the first half of 2016. The year-to-date increase was primarily driven by a $329 million deferred tax valuation allowance reversal, a $482 million gain related to the Genco financial restructuring and contributions from the ENGIE assets, while second quarter 2016 results were impacted by the asset impairment noted above.

For the first half of 2017, the Company reported consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of $470 million compared to $438 million for the first half of 2016. The $32 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily driven by the ENGIE assets. Partially offsetting these improvements were compressed energy margins, particularly in our natural gas fleet, as natural gas prices rose faster than power prices which compressed spark spreads during the period.

"Going into the second quarter, our priorities were to prepare the fleet and workforce for the important summer season, hit our financial targets and increase our liquidity in preparation for the pay down of our 2019 debt maturity later this year. By all measures we had a very successful quarter," said Robert Flexon, Dynegy President and Chief Executive Officer. "The balance of the year will bring added emphasis on analyzing our operating practices to drive additional efficiencies in preparation for the next generation of our PRIDE improvement plan and reducing our leverage."

Segment Review of Results Quarter-over-Quarter

PJM - Operating income for the 2017 second quarter totaled $6 million, compared to operating income of $71 million for the same period of 2016. The decline was primarily due to lower spark spreads, non-cash mark-to-market losses on derivatives and a non-cash loss associated with the Conesville/Zimmer ownership interest exchange. Adjusted EBITDA totaled $168 million during the 2017 second quarter compared to $152 million during the same period in 2016 as contributions from the ENGIE assets and higher energy margins from the coal fleet more than offset weaker spark spreads at the gas fleet.

NY/NE - Operating loss for the 2017 second quarter totaled $1 million, compared to operating loss of $5 million for the same period in 2016. Adjusted EBITDA totaled $60 million during the 2017 second quarter, compared to $34 million during the same period in 2016 with the increase primarily due to the contributions from the ENGIE assets.

ERCOT - Operating loss for the 2017 second quarter totaled $30 million as energy margin of $29 million was offset by $29 million of O&M expenses, $21 million of depreciation expense and $8 million of non-cash mark-to-market losses on derivatives. Adjusted EBITDA was $1 million for the same period. During the second quarter, Dynegy completed multiple planned outages at the ERCOT facilities in order to prepare for the summer cooling season.

MISO - Operating loss for the 2017 second quarter totaled $98 million, compared to an operating loss of $729 million for the same period in 2016. Previous year results were impacted by asset impairments, however 2017 results benefited from lower O&M costs and non-cash mark-to-market income on derivatives. Adjusted EBITDA totaled $3 million during the 2017 second quarter compared to $4 million during the same period in 2016.

IPH - Operating income for the 2017 second quarter totaled $11 million, compared to $3 million for the same period of 2016 due to higher capacity revenues. Adjusted EBITDA totaled $47 million during the 2017 second quarter compared to $11 million during the same period in 2016 due to higher capacity revenues and the receipt of contingent proceeds in 2017 related to the 2013 Ameren acquisition.

CAISO - Operating loss for the 2017 second quarter totaled $19 million, compared to operating income of $4 million for the same period in 2016. The decrease is due to lower capacity revenues and higher depreciation. Adjusted EBITDA loss totaled $1 million during the 2017 second quarter compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $21 million during the same period in 2016 due to lower capacity revenues and a one-time supplier settlement in 2016.

Liquidity

As of June 30, 2017, Dynegy's total available liquidity was $1.4 billion as reflected in the table below.
(amounts in millions)      
Revolving facilities and LC capacity (1) $ 1,650
Less:
Outstanding revolvers (300 )
Outstanding LCs (413 )

Cash and cash equivalents 447  
Total available liquidity $ 1,384  

__________________________________________
(1)   Dynegy Inc. includes $1.5 billion in senior secured revolving credit facilities and $105 million related to LCs.
 

During the second quarter, outstanding collateral declined by approximately $85 million primarily due to the AEP transaction closing and the subsequent return of a $58 million letter of credit, as well as other collateral efficiency initiatives. Additionally, upon retirement of the Brayton Point Power Station, the associated inventory financing was fully paid and extinguished.

Consolidated Cash Flow

Cash provided by operations totaled $230 million for the first half of 2017. During the period, our power generation facilities and retail operations provided cash of $523 million. Corporate activities, primarily related to general and administrative, interest and acquisition-related expenses, as well as other working capital changes, used cash of $293 million during the period.

Cash used in investing activities totaled $3.3 billion during the first half of 2017 as Dynegy used $3,263 million at the ENGIE acquisition closing and invested $86 million in capital expenditures.

Cash used in financing activities totaled $275 million for the first half of 2017.

2017 Guidance

Dynegy's full-year 2017 Adjusted EBITDA guidance range remains unchanged at $1,200-1,400 million. The Company's Adjusted free cash flow range is affirmed at $300-$500 million. The Company is maintaining these guidance ranges despite foregoing approximately $55 million in forecasted Adjusted EBITDA from the later than expected closing of the ENGIE acquisition and the mid-year sale of the Troy and Armstrong facilities which were included for the full 12 months guidance target when originally issued.

Retail Growth

Dynegy's business has grown to serve approximately 1.2 million residential and commercial accounts. The retail business expanded to New England this summer with its municipal aggregation contracts in the greater Boston area. The Company now provides electricity to more than 550 communities in Illinois, Massachusetts and Ohio.

Safety

Dynegy's safety performance has reached the top decile for the industry. Both coal and gas facilities are focused on intensive safety initiatives helping to drive safety culture: second quarter 2017 saw safety performance improved with 40% fewer injuries overall compared to 2016. Dynegy expects that all its plants will complete the Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) certification, a rigorous evaluation process conducted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, within the next three years. The Lake Road plant received its VPP certification renewal during the second quarter.

Asset Portfolio Updates

PJM and ISO-NE Asset Sales

On July 10, Dynegy reached agreements to sell three generating assets for approximately $300 million.

Lee Energy Facility, a 625 MW (summer capacity rating) gas-fueled peaking asset in the PJM ComEd region will be sold to an affiliate of Rockland Capital for $180 million in cash, and the sale will enable the company to avoid significant incremental capital investments necessary to convert the plant to dual fuel status in order to meet PJM capacity performance obligations.

Dynegy also signed a purchase and sale agreement with Starwood Energy Group Global to sell two intermediate gas-fueled plants located in Dighton and Milford, Massachusetts for $119 million in cash. The Dighton and Milford sale fulfills the mitigation plan approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) regarding the Company's purchase of ENGIE's US-based asset portfolio.

On July 11, Dynegy completed the sale of two peaking units, Troy and Armstrong Energy Facilities, and received approximately $480 million in cash proceeds.

In total, these asset sales will provide approximately $780 million in proceeds which will be used for debt reduction.

AEP Conesville/Zimmer Transaction Complete

On May 9, Dynegy finalized the sale of its 40% ownership interest (312 MW) in Conesville Power Station to AEP and acquired AEP's 25.4% ownership interest (330 MW) in Zimmer Power Station. No cash was exchanged, no additional debt incurred and AEP returned $58 million in letters of credit previously posted by Dynegy.

As a result, Dynegy owns 71.9% (971 MW) and continues to operate Zimmer. Dynegy no longer has an ownership interest in the AEP-operated Conesville.

AES Miami Fort/Zimmer Ownership Consolidation Update

On April 21, Dynegy reached agreement to purchase AES' 28.1% ownership interest in Zimmer and 36% in Miami Fort stations, totaling approximately 740 MW of generating capacity, for $50 million, subject to certain adjustments. The transaction close is pending FERC approval, anticipated to come by year end.

Uprate Program Developments

We completed 43 MW of low-cost uprates at Liberty and Milford (CT) averaging $175/kW, bringing our uprate total to 702 MW over the past three years.

PRIDE and ENGIE Synergies Update

Dynegy's PRIDE Energized (Producing Results through Innovation by Dynegy Employees) program is on track to meet or exceed its 2017 target of $65 million in EBITDA by the end of the fourth quarter. Through its PRIDE program, Dynegy has already exceeded its three-year goal of $400 million in balance sheet improvements with $422 million in improvements accomplished in 2016. Dynegy has identified more than $100 million of incremental balance sheet opportunities that will result in more than $500 million in PRIDE improvements secured over the course of 2016 and 2017.

Dynegy has completed the ENGIE integration and achieved the expected $120 million in synergies. Any future opportunities related to the ENGIE assets will be incorporated in the PRIDE program for which we expect to provide enhanced targets later this year.

Investor Conference Call/Webcast

Dynegy's earnings presentation and management comments on the earnings presentation will be available on the "Investor Relations" section of www.dynegy.com later today. The Company will answer questions about its 2017 second quarter financial results during an investor conference call and webcast tomorrow, August 4, 2017 at 9 am ET/8 am CT.
