Consolidated Results

For first quarter 2020, the company reported earnings of $119 million, or 59 cents per share, on an as-reported basis, and earnings of $230 million, or $1.14 per share, on an adjusted basis. This compared to first quarter 2019 earnings of $255 million, or $1.32 per share, on an as-reported basis, and earnings of $158 million, or 82 cents 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 variances by business is provided in Appendix B.

Business Segment Results

Utility

For first quarter 2020, the Utility business reported earnings attributable to Entergy Corporation of $320 million, or $1.59 per share, on both an as-reported and an adjusted basis. This compared to first quarter 2019 earnings of $231 million, or $1.20 per share, on both an as-reported basis and an adjusted basis. Drivers for the quarter included:
rate activity at E-AR, E-LA, E-MS, and E-TX;
a first quarter 2019 reserve at E-AR;
higher nuclear insurance refunds, as well as lower fossil and nuclear generation spending;
a favorable book-to-tax permanent difference related to stock-based compensation; and
an IRS settlement related to Hurricane Isaac Act 55 financing, net of customer sharing (largely offset by higher tax expense from this settlement at P&O).







These drivers were partially offset by:
higher pension and benefits expenses;
higher depreciation and interest expenses; and
lower sales volume, including the net effect of billed and unbilled sales, and the effects of weather.

On a per share basis, first quarter 2020 results reflected higher common shares outstanding.

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

Parent & Other

For first quarter 2020, Parent & Other reported a loss attributable to Entergy Corporation of $(90 million), or (45) cents per share, on both an as-reported basis and an adjusted basis. This compared to a loss of $(73 million), or (38) cents per share, on both an as-reported and an adjusted basis in first quarter 2019. The main driver for the quarter was higher income tax expense resulting from the IRS settlement related to Hurricane Isaac Act 55 financing, which largely offsets the benefit from this settlement at the Utility.

On a per share basis, first quarter 2020 results reflected higher common shares outstanding.
 
Entergy Wholesale Commodities

For first quarter 2020, EWC reported a loss attributable to Entergy Corporation of
$(111 million), or (55) cents per share, on an as-reported basis. This compared to first quarter 2019 earnings attributable to Entergy Corporation of $97 million, or 50 cents per share, on an as-reported basis. Drivers for the quarter included:
losses on decommissioning trust funds; and
lower revenue due to the shutdown of Pilgrim, as well as lower nuclear pricing.

These drivers were partially offset by:
lower impairments as compared to a year ago;
lower other O&M expense due to the shutdown of Pilgrim, as well as lower severance and retention expense;
higher nuclear volume; and
an income tax item related to the sale of Vermont Yankee recorded in first quarter 2019.

On a per share basis, first quarter 2020 results reflected higher common shares outstanding.

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

    
Earnings per Share Guidance

Entergy affirmed its 2020 adjusted EPS guidance range of $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 $(1.25)





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 escrow balances; 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; return on average invested capital; and return on average common equity 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.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

In this news release, and from time to time, Entergy Corporation makes certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements include, among other things, Entergy’s 2020 earnings guidance; its current financial and operational outlooks; and other statements of Entergy’s plans, beliefs, or expectations included in this news release.

OCF increased quarter-over-quarter due primarily to higher collections for fuel and purchased power cost recovery, a lower amount of unprotected excess ADIT returned to customers, higher nuclear insurance refunds, and lower nuclear refueling outage spending at EWC. Unfavorable weather and higher pension contributions partially offset the increase. Intercompany income tax payments also contributed to the line of business variances.

Appendix A-3 and Appendix A-4 list adjustments by business. Amounts are shown on both an earnings and an EPS basis. 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.

(e)
The earnings increase was primarily driven by rate activity from E-AR’s FRP; E-LA’s FRP, including recovery of the J. Wayne Leonard Power Station (formerly St Charles Power Station); E-MS’s FRP; recovery of E-MS’s Choctaw Generating Station; and E-TX’s TCRF and AMI rider. The variance also reflected a first quarter 2019 regulatory reserve at E-AR, as well as higher regulatory credits at E-LA for the difference between asset retirement obligation-related expenses and





trust earnings plus asset retirement obligation-related costs collected in revenue. Partially offsetting was the net effect of volume/weather, as well as a regulatory liability for tax sharing with E-LA customers (this partially offsets the Hurricane Isaac Act 55 income tax item discussed in footnote n).
(f)
The earnings decrease was due largely to lower revenues from the shutdown of Pilgrim in May 2019, as well as lower capacity and energy prices. These were partially offset by higher energy volume at Indian Point.
(g)
The earnings increase from lower Utility other O&M was due largely to higher nuclear insurance refunds and lower fossil and nuclear generation spending. These were partially offset by higher pension and benefits expenses, as well as higher E-MS storm damage provisions (offset in operating revenue).
(h)
The earnings increase from lower EWC other O&M was due largely to the shutdown of Pilgrim in May 2019, as well as a decrease in severance and retention expense.
(i)
The earnings increase from lower EWC asset write-offs and impairments was due primarily to higher impairment charges in first quarter 2019, largely refueling outage costs at Indian Point.
(j)
The earnings increase from lower EWC decommissioning expense was due to the sale of Pilgrim in 2019.
(k)
The earnings decrease from higher Utility depreciation expense was due primarily to higher plant in service, including J. Wayne Leonard Power Station and Choctaw County Generating Station, as well as higher depreciation rates at E-MS.
(l)
The earnings decrease from lower EWC other income (deductions)-other was due largely to losses on the decommissioning trust fund investments in first quarter 2020 as compared to gains in first quarter 2019.
(m)
The earnings decrease from higher Utility interest expense was due primarily to higher debt balances at E-LA and E-AR.
(n)
The earnings increase from lower 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 $22million, $20 million greater than first quarter 2019.
(o)
The earnings decrease from higher 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 n).
(p)
The earnings increase from lower 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.
(q)
The earnings per share impacts from share effect were due to settlement of the equity forward (8.4 million shares settled in May 2019).

(r)
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 first quarter 2020, billed retail sales increased 0.3 percent. Residential billed sales increased 1.4 percent primarily due to more days billed compared to a year ago. Commercial billed sales decreased (2.7) percent driven by the continued impact of energy efficiency as well as billing delays. Industrial billed sales volume increased 1.1 percent driven by continued growth from new/expansion customers, partially offset by lower sales to existing large customers.
