With the confidence and clarity we have for the remainder of the year, we are narrowing our 2020 adjusted earnings per share guidance range, and we are affirming our longer-term outlooks," said Entergy Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Leo Denault.

For the past several years, we've been building the culture, processes, and resources to successfully deliver on our commitments, even in the face of extraordinary times.

Consolidated Results

For third quarter 2020, the company reported earnings of $521 million, or $2.59 per share, on an as-reported basis, and earnings of $491 million, or $2.44 per share, on an adjusted basis.

Summary discussions by business are below. Additional details, including information on OCF by business, are provided in Appendix A. An analysis of quarterly and year-to-date variances by business is provided in Appendix B.

Business Segment Results

Utility

For third quarter 2020, the Utility business reported earnings attributable to Entergy Corporation of $552 million, or $2.74 per share, on both an as-reported and an adjusted basis. This compared to third quarter 2019 earnings of $578 million, or $2.88 per share, on both an
as-reported basis and an adjusted basis. Drivers for the quarter included:

  • lower sales volume, including the effects of COVID-19, Hurricane Laura, and weather; and
  • higher depreciation and interest expenses.

These drivers were partially offset by:

  • regulatory actions at E-AR, E-LA, E-MS, and E-TX; and
  • lower other O&M.

Appendix C contains additional details on Utility financial and operating measures.

Parent & Other

For third quarter 2020, Parent & Other reported a loss attributable to Entergy Corporation of $(61 million), or (30) cents per share, on both an as-reported basis and an adjusted basis. This compared to a loss of $(72 million), or (36) cents per share, on both an as-reported and an adjusted basis in third quarter 2019.

Entergy Wholesale Commodities 

For third quarter 2020, EWC reported earnings attributable to Entergy Corporation of
$30 million, or 15 cents per share, on an as-reported basis. This compared to a third quarter 2019 loss of $(141 million), or (70) cents per share, on an as-reported basis. Drivers for the quarter included:

  • lower asset write-offs and impairments;
  • higher gains on decommissioning trust funds;
  • lower other O&M expense due to the shutdown of Indian Point 2; and
  • lower depreciation expenses.

These drivers were partially offset by lower revenue due to the shutdown of Indian Point 2.

Appendix D contains additional details on EWC financial and operating measures, including a reconciliation for non-GAAP EWC adjusted EBITDA.

Earnings Per Share Guidance

Entergy narrowed its 2020 adjusted EPS guidance to a range of $5.60 to $5.70 from $5.45 to $5.75. See webcast presentation slides for additional details.

The company has provided 2020 earnings guidance with regard to the non-GAAP measure of Entergy adjusted EPS. This measure excludes from the corresponding GAAP financial measure the effect of adjustments as described below under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures." The company has not provided a reconciliation of such non-GAAP guidance to guidance presented on a GAAP basis because it cannot predict and quantify with a reasonable degree of confidence all of the adjustments that may occur during the period. One such adjustment will be the exclusion of EWC earnings from Entergy adjusted EPS. We currently estimate that the contribution of EWC to Entergy's as-reported EPS will be approximately (30) cents in 2020. These estimates are subject to substantial uncertainty due to, among other things, the potential effects of exiting the EWC business.

Entergy Corporation is an integrated energy company engaged primarily in electric power production and retail distribution operations. Entergy owns and operates power plants with approximately 30,000 megawatts of electric generating capacity, including 8,000 megawatts of nuclear power. Entergy delivers electricity to 2.9 million utility customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. Entergy has annual revenues of $11 billion and approximately 13,600 employees.

Entergy Corporation's common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and NYSE Chicago under the symbol "ETR."

Details regarding Entergy's results of operations, regulatory proceedings, and other matters are available in this earnings release, a copy of which will be filed with the SEC, and the webcast slide presentation. Both documents are available on Entergy's Investor Relations website at www.entergy.com/investor_relations.

Entergy maintains a web page as part of its Investor Relations website, entitled Regulatory and Other Information, which provides investors with key updates of certain regulatory proceedings and important milestones on the execution of its strategy. While some of this information may be considered material information, investors should not rely exclusively on this page for all relevant company information.

For definitions of certain operating measures, as well as GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures and abbreviations and acronyms used in the earnings release materials, see Appendix F.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release contains non-GAAP financial measures, which are generally numerical measures of a company's performance, financial position, or cash flows that either exclude or include amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Entergy has provided quantitative reconciliations within this news release of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Entergy reports earnings using the non-GAAP measure of Entergy adjusted earnings, which excludes the effect of certain "adjustments," including the removal of the Entergy Wholesale Commodities segment in light of the company's decision to exit the merchant power business. Adjustments are unusual or non-recurring items or events or other items or events that management believes do not reflect the ongoing business of Entergy, such as the results of the EWC segment, significant tax items, and other items such as certain costs, expenses, or other specified items. In addition to reporting GAAP consolidated earnings on a per share basis, Entergy reports its adjusted earnings on a per share basis. These per share measures represent the applicable earnings amount divided by the diluted average number of common shares outstanding for the period.

Management uses the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share for, among other things, financial planning and analysis; reporting financial results to the board of directors, employees, stockholders, analysts, and investors; and internal evaluation of financial performance. Entergy believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors in evaluating the ongoing results of Entergy's business, comparing period to period results, and comparing Entergy's financial performance to the financial performance of other companies in the utility sector.

Other non-GAAP measures, including adjusted EBITDA; adjusted ROE; adjusted ROIC; gross liquidity; net liquidity; net liquidity, including storm escrows; debt to capital, excluding securitization debt; net debt to net capital, excluding securitization debt; parent debt to total debt, excluding securitization debt; FFO; FFO to debt, excluding securitization debt; and FFO to debt, excluding securitization debt, return of unprotected excess ADIT, and severance and retention payments associated with exit of EWC, are measures Entergy uses internally for management and board discussions and to gauge the overall strength of its business. Entergy believes the above data provides useful information to investors in evaluating Entergy's ongoing financial results and flexibility, and assists investors in comparing Entergy's credit and liquidity to the credit and liquidity of others in the utility sector. In addition, other financial measures including net income (or earnings), adjusted for preferred dividends and tax-effected interest expense; ROIC; and ROE are included on both an adjusted and an as-reported basis. In each case, the metrics defined as "adjusted" (other than EWC's adjusted EBITDA) excludes the effect of adjustments as defined above. EWC's adjusted EBITDA represents EWC's earnings before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization, and also excludes decommissioning expense.

These non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of Entergy's operations that, when viewed with Entergy's GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting Entergy's business. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be used to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. Investors are strongly encouraged to review Entergy's consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. Although certain of these measures are intended to assist investors in comparing Entergy's performance to other companies in the utility sector, non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized; therefore, it might not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names.

OCF decreased quarter-over-quarter due primarily to lower collections from Utility customers, due in part to COVID-19, and higher pension funding, partially offset by a lower amount of unprotected excess ADIT returned to customers. Intercompany income tax payments contributed to the line of business variances.

Appendix A-3 and Appendix A-4 list adjustments by business. Adjustments are included in as-reported earnings consistent with GAAP but are excluded from adjusted earnings. As a result, adjusted earnings is considered a non-GAAP measure.

(c) 

Utility operating revenue / regulatory charges, Utility other O&M, and Utility income taxes-other exclude $16 million, $- million, and $16 million respectively in third quarter 2020 and $93 million, $3 million, and $96 million respectively in third quarter 2019 for the return of unprotected excess ADIT to customers (net effect is neutral to earnings). On a year-to-date basis, Utility operating revenue / regulatory charges, Utility other O&M, and Utility income taxes-other exclude $61 million, $- million, and $61 million respectively in 2020 and $216 million, $3 million, and $219 million respectively in 2019 (net effect is neutral to earnings).

(d) 

EPS effect is calculated by multiplying the pre-tax amount by the estimated income tax rate that is expected to apply and dividing by diluted average number of common shares outstanding for the prior period; income taxes–other represents income tax differences other than the tax effect of individual line items.

(e) 

The third quarter and year-to-date earnings increases were primarily driven by E-AR's FRP; E-LA's FRP, including recovery of the LCPS; E-MS's FRP, vegetation rider, and recovery of Choctaw; and E-TX's TCRF. Partially offsetting was volume/weather, including the effects of COVID-19 and Hurricane Laura as well as E-NO's rate case. The year-to date variance also reflected recovery of the J. Wayne Leonard Power Station, a first quarter 2019 regulatory reserve at E-AR, and a regulatory liability for tax sharing with E-LA customers (this partially offsets the Hurricane Isaac Act 55 income tax item discussed in footnote r).

(f) 

The third quarter and year-to-date earnings decreases were due largely to lower revenues from the shutdown of Indian Point 2 in April 2020. The year-to-date variance also reflected lower revenues from the shutdown of Pilgrim in May 2019 and lower capacity and energy prices, partially offset by higher energy volume in the remaining EWC nuclear fleet.

(g) 

The third quarter and year-to-date earnings increases from lower Utility other O&M were due primarily to a decrease in loss provisions, lower contract costs related to new customer initiatives, and lower non-nuclear generation expenses related to long-term service agreements and the timing and scope of outages, including a delay in planned outages as a result of COVID-19. These were partially offset by higher compensation and benefits costs, primarily pension. The year-to-date variance also reflected lower nuclear generation expenses, higher nuclear insurance refunds, and higher E-MS storm damage provisions (offset in operating revenue).

(h) 

The third quarter and year-to-date earnings increases from lower EWC other O&M were due largely to the shutdown of Indian Point 2 in April 2020. The year-to-date variance also reflected the shutdown of Pilgrim in May 2019, as well as a decrease in severance and retention expense.

(i)

The third quarter and year-to-date earnings increases from lower EWC asset write-offs and impairments were due primarily to a $191 million loss (pre-tax) on the sale of Pilgrim in third quarter 2019. The year-to-date variance also reflected higher impairment charges in first quarter 2019, largely refueling outage costs at Indian Point.

(j) 

The third quarter and year-to-date earnings decreases from higher Utility depreciation expense were due primarily to higher plant in service, including the LCPS and Choctaw. The year-to-date variance also reflected the J. Wayne Leonard Power Station being placed in service in second quarter 2019, as well as higher depreciation rates at E-MS.

(k) 

The third quarter and year-to-date earnings increases from lower EWC depreciation expense were due primarily to the shutdown of Indian Point 2 in April 2020. The year-to-date variance also reflected the shutdown of Pilgrim in May 2019.

(l) 

The third quarter and year-to-date earnings decreases from lower Utility other income (deductions)–other were due largely to changes in decommissioning trust fund activity (based on regulatory treatment, decommissioning-related variances are largely earnings neutral). Lower AFUDC as a result of higher construction work in progress in 2019 also contributed.

(m) 

The third quarter earnings increase from higher EWC other income (deductions)–other was due largely to higher gains on decommissioning trust fund investments in 2020 as compared to 2019, as well as a $16 million pension settlement charge in third quarter 2019 related to the exit of the EWC business. The year-to-date earnings decrease was due largely to performance of nuclear decommissioning trust fund investments in 2020 as compared to 2019.

(n) 

 The third quarter and year-to-date earnings decreases from higher Utility interest expense were due primarily to higher debt balances at E-LA, E-TX, and E-MS. The year-to-date variance also reflected a higher debt balance at E-AR.

(o) 

The year-to-date earnings increase from lower EWC decommissioning expense was due to the sale of Pilgrim in 2019.

(p) 

The year-to-date earnings decrease from higher Utility taxes other than income taxes was due primarily to an increase in ad valorem taxes at E-LA.

(q) 

The year-to-date earnings increase from Parent & Other other income (deductions)–other was due primarily to intercompany interest.

(r)

The year-to-date earnings increase from Utility effective income tax rate reflected two first quarter 2020 items. A $55 million tax benefit was recorded as a result of an IRS settlement related to Act 55 financing of Hurricane Isaac costs (partly offset by customer sharing, recorded as a regulatory charge discussed in footnote e). In addition, an annual tax deduction related to stock-based compensation resulted in an income tax benefit of $22 million, $20 million greater than first quarter 2019.

(s) 

The year-to-date earnings decrease from Parent & Other effective income tax rate was due to an increase in income tax expense of $23 million as a result of the IRS settlement related to the Hurricane Isaac Act 55 financing (discussed in footnote r).

(t) 

The year-to-date earnings increase from EWC effective income tax rate is primarily due to a first quarter 2019 accrual of $29 million of tax expense, which resulted from the sale of Vermont Yankee in January 2019.

(u) 

The earnings per share impacts from share effect were due to settlement of the equity forward (8.4 million shares settled in May 2019).

The effects of weather were estimated using heating degree days and cooling degree days for the billing cycles from certain locations within each jurisdiction and comparing to "normal" weather based on 20-year historical data. The models used to estimate weather are updated periodically and are subject to change.

 

On a weather-adjusted basis for third quarter 2020, billed retail sales decreased (4.1) percent, including the impacts of Hurricane Laura and COVID-19. Residential billed sales increased 1.6 percent and commercial billed sales decreased (7.5) percent. Industrial billed sales volume decreased (6.7) reflecting lower sales to existing large and small customers, partially offset by continued growth from new/expansion customers.
