Item 5. Other Events

     On January 24, 2001, Hawaiian Electric Industries, Inc. (HEI) held a
teleconference call and webcast to discuss December 31, 2001 yearend earnings.
Several forward-looking statements were made on that call that were not included
in HEI's earnings press release filed on Form 8-K on January 24, 2002 or other
filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including forward-
looking statements about pension credits, interest rate spread and the operating
loss for the "other" segment. The Company is providing information about these
items in written form, as well as correcting information disclosed about the
operating loss for the "other" segment.

Pension credits
     The market performance of the assets in HEI's master pension trust and a
change in the discount rate in 2001 is currently projected to negatively impact
Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc.'s net income by $2 million in 2002 compared to

Interest rate spread
     In December 2001, the interest rate spread at American Savings Bank, F.S.B.
(ASB) was 3.37% and ASB endeavors to maintain that spread into 2002.

Operating loss for the "other" segment
     The operating loss for the "other" segment is estimated to be between $10-
12 million and not $15.5 million as was disclosed on the call. The $10-12
million contemplates the current level of administrative and general expenses,
does not include interest expense or income taxes and is subject to variability
(e.g. for performance-based incentive compensation). Operating loss for the
"other" segment for the year ended December 31, 2001 includes $8.7 million of
investment losses related to investment securities acquired by the holding
company in connection with the disposition of certain trust securities by ASB.
The remaining book value of these investment securities amounted to $15.5
million as of December 31, 2001.

     Other forward-looking statements were made on the call, including, but not
limited to, forward-looking statements about the outlook for the Hawaii and
national economy.  These statements and the statements detailed above are
subject to risks and uncertainties.  Forward-looking statements are statements
that are predictive in nature, depend upon or refer to future events or
conditions, and usually include words such as expects, anticipates, intends,
plans, believes, predicts, estimates or similar expressions.  Forward-looking
statements in this filing should be read in conjunction with "Forward-looking
statements" set forth on page v of HEI's Form 10-Q for the quarter ended
September 30, 2001 (incorporated by reference herein) and in HEI's future
periodic reports that discuss important factors that could cause HEI's results
to differ materially from those anticipated in such statements.  Forward-looking
statements speak only as of the date of this filing.
