ENTERGY CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

MANAGEMENT’S FINANCIAL DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

Entergy operates primarily through two business segments: Utility and Entergy Wholesale Commodities.

The Utility business segment includes the generation, transmission, distribution, and sale of electric power in portions of Arkansas, Mississippi, Texas, and Louisiana, including the City of New Orleans; and operation of a small natural gas distribution business.  
The Entergy Wholesale Commodities business segment includes the ownership, operation, and decommissioning of nuclear power plants located in the northern United States and the sale of the electric power produced by its operating plants to wholesale customers.  Entergy Wholesale Commodities also provides services to other nuclear power plant owners and owns interests in non-nuclear power plants that sell the electric power produced by those plants to wholesale customers. See “Entergy Wholesale Commodities Exit from the Merchant Power Business” below and in the Form 10-K for discussion of the operation and planned shutdown and sale of each of the Entergy Wholesale Commodities nuclear power plants.

See Note 7 to the financial statements herein for financial information regarding Entergy’s business segments.

The COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic and the measures to control it have adversely affected economic activity and conditions worldwide and have affected the demand for the products and services of many businesses in Entergy’s service area. Entergy expects a decline in sales volume during 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in the commercial and industrial sectors, although the effect in the first quarter 2020 was minimal. In addition, although the effect in the first quarter 2020 was also minimal, Entergy expects negative changes during 2020 to its customers’ payment patterns and its operating cash flow activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These negative changes are likely to include an increase in uncollectible accounts expense.

Entergy provides critical services to its customers and has implemented its comprehensive incident response plan, which contemplates major events such as storms or pandemics. Entergy’s focus has been on the safety and wellness of its employees; providing safe, reliable service for its customers; analyzing and addressing the financial effects of the COVID-19 pandemic; and continuing its plans for the future. Entergy implemented precautionary measures for safety on and off the job for employees working at plants and in the field and implemented telecommuting practices for employees who can work from home. Entergy suspended service disconnections for customers and is working with regulators to address routine and non-routine matters and allow continuation of capital spending plans. Most of the Utility operating companies have received accounting orders to defer costs associated with COVID-19. To date, Entergy has not had material effects to its major projects or capital spending plans. Entergy is working with suppliers and contractors for continued availability of resources, equipment, and supplies to keep operations and major projects going forward and on schedule. Entergy plans to implement expense-related spending reductions in 2020, which it does not expect to affect safety or service reliability, in order to offset some of the financial effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the negative effects of the pandemic on financial markets, certain of the Utility operating companies issued a total of $1.065 billion of long-term mortgage bonds in March 2020, and Entergy Arkansas and Entergy Mississippi renewed their short-term credit facilities. In addition to cash on hand, Entergy’s sources of liquidity are outlined in “Capital Structure and Resources” and in Note 4 to the financial statements herein.

Despite Entergy’s actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, uncertainty exists regarding the full depth and length of the effects of COVID-19 on Entergy’s sales volume, revenue, collections and cash flows, expenses, liquidity, and capital needs. Entergy will continue to monitor actively the COVID-19 pandemic and related developments affecting its workforce, customers, suppliers, operations, and financial condition.

Refer to “ENTERGY CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES - SELECTED OPERATING RESULTS” for further information with respect to operating statistics.

First quarter 2020 results of operations include losses of $211 million (pre-tax) on Entergy Wholesale Commodities’ nuclear decommissioning trust fund investments reflecting the equity market decline in March 2020 associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. See Notes 8 and 9 to the financial statements herein for a discussion of decommissioning trust fund investments. First quarter 2020 results of operations also include impairment charges of $5 million ($4 million net-of-tax) as a result of expenditures for capital assets being charged directly to expense as incurred as a result of the impaired value of the Entergy Wholesale Commodities nuclear plants’ long-lived assets due to the significantly reduced remaining estimated operating lives associated with management’s strategy to exit the Entergy Wholesale Commodities merchant power business. See “Entergy Wholesale Commodities Exit from the Merchant Power Business” below and in the Form 10-K for discussion of management’s strategy to shut down and sell all of the remaining plants in the Entergy Wholesale Commodities merchant nuclear fleet.

Entergy Corporation and Subsidiaries
Management's Financial Discussion and Analysis

First quarter 2019 results of operations include impairment charges of $74 million ($58 million net-of-tax) due to costs being charged directly to expense as incurred as a result of the impaired value of the Entergy Wholesale Commodities nuclear plants’ long-lived assets due to the significantly reduced remaining estimated operating lives associated with management’s strategy to exit the Entergy Wholesale Commodities merchant power business. See “Entergy Wholesale Commodities Exit from the Merchant Power Business” below and in the Form 10-K for discussion of management’s strategy to shut down and sell all of the remaining plants in the Entergy Wholesale Commodities merchant nuclear fleet.

Operating Revenues

Utility

Following is an analysis of the change in operating revenues comparing the first quarter 2020 to the first quarter 2019:
 
Amount
 
(In Millions)
2019 operating revenues

$2,176

Fuel, rider, and other revenues that do not significantly affect net income
(164
)
Volume/weather
(10
)
Return of unprotected excess accumulated deferred income taxes to customers
34

Retail electric price
59

2020 operating revenues

$2,095


The Utility operating companies’ results include revenues from rate mechanisms designed to recover fuel, purchased power, and other costs such that the revenues and expenses associated with these items generally offset and do not affect net income. “Fuel, rider, and other revenues that do not significantly affect net income” includes the revenue variance associated with these items.

The volume/weather variance is primarily due to the effect of less favorable weather on residential sales and decreased commercial usage, partially offset by an increase in industrial usage and increased usage during the unbilled sales period. The increase in industrial usage is primarily due to growth from new customers, partially offset by decreased demand from existing customers and co-generation and decreased small industrial sales.

The return of unprotected excess accumulated deferred income taxes to customers resulted from activity at the Utility operating companies in response to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The return of unprotected excess accumulated deferred income taxes began in second quarter 2018. In first quarter 2020, $27 million was returned to customers through reductions in operating revenues as compared to $61 million in first quarter 2019. There is no effect on net income as the reductions in operating revenues were offset by reductions in income tax expense. See Note 2 to the financial statements in the Form 10-K for further discussion of regulatory activity regarding the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.     

The retail electric price variance is primarily due to:

an interim increase in formula rate plan revenues effective June 2019 due to the inclusion of the first-year revenue requirement for the J. Wayne Leonard Power Station (formerly St. Charles Power Station) at Entergy Louisiana, as approved by the LPSC;
an interim capacity rate adjustment to the formula rate plan to recover non-fuel related costs of acquiring and operating the Choctaw Generating Station effective January 2020 and an increase in formula rate plan revenues

effective with the first billing cycle of July 2019, each at Entergy Mississippi, as approved by the MPSC;
an increase in the transmission cost recovery factor rider in January 2020 at Entergy Texas, as approved by the PUCT; and
an increase in formula rate plan rates effective with the first billing cycle of January 2020 at Entergy Arkansas, as approved by the APSC.

The increase was partially offset by provisions recorded in the first quarter 2020 at Entergy New Orleans for the revenue collected in 2020 that will be refunded to customers through new rates implemented in April 2020 based on an August 2019 effective date for the rate decrease.

See Note 2 to the financial statements herein and in the Form 10-K for further discussion of the regulatory proceedings discussed above.

Although the effect in the first quarter 2020 was minimal, Entergy expects a decline in sales volume during 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in the commercial and industrial customer classes. See “The COVID-19 Pandemic” section of Entergy Corporation and Subsidiaries Management’s Financial Discussion and Analysis for discussion of the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Entergy Wholesale Commodities

Operating revenues for Entergy Wholesale Commodities decreased from $434 million for the first quarter 2019 to $333 million for the first quarter 2020 primarily due to the shutdown of Pilgrim in May 2019 and lower realized wholesale energy and capacity prices, partially offset by higher volume in the remaining Entergy Wholesale Commodities nuclear fleet resulting from fewer outage days in the first quarter 2020 as compared to the first quarter 2019.

Other Income Statement Items

Utility

Other operation and maintenance expenses decreased from $585 million for the first quarter 2019 to $566 million for the first quarter 2020 primarily due to:

higher nuclear insurance refunds of $18 million;

Entergy Corporation and Subsidiaries
Management's Financial Discussion and Analysis

a decrease of $15 million in fossil-fueled generation expenses due to a lower scope of work performed during plant outages in 2020 as compared to 2019; and
a decrease of $11 million in nuclear generation expenses primarily due to a lower scope of work performed in 2020 as compared to 2019 and lower nuclear labor costs, including contract labor.

The decrease was partially offset by:

an increase of $11 million in compensation and benefits costs primarily due to an increase in net periodic pension and other postretirement benefits costs as a result of a decrease in the discount rate used to value the benefit liabilities and an increase in employee health benefits costs. See “MANAGEMENT’S FINANCIAL DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS - Critical Accounting Estimates” in the Form 10-K, Note 6 to the financial statements herein, and Note 11 to the financial statements in the Form 10-K for further discussion of pension and other postretirement benefit costs; and
an increase of $5 million in storm damage provisions at Entergy Mississippi. See Note 2 to the financial statements in the Form 10-K for discussion of storm cost recovery.

Depreciation and amortization expenses increased primarily due to additions to plant in service, including the J. Wayne Leonard Power Station (formerly St. Charles Power Station) and the Choctaw Generating Station, and new depreciation rates at Entergy Mississippi, as approved by the MPSC.

Interest expense increased primarily due to the issuance in March 2019 of $525 million of 4.20% Series mortgage bonds by Entergy Louisiana and the issuance in March 2019 of $350 million of 4.20% Series mortgage bonds by Entergy Arkansas.

Entergy Wholesale Commodities

Other operation and maintenance expenses decreased from $189 million for the first quarter 2019 to $131 million for the first quarter 2020 primarily due to:

a decrease of $31 million in nuclear generation expenditures primarily due to the absence of other operation and maintenance expenses from the Pilgrim plant, after it was shut down in May 2019 and subsequently sold. See Note 14 to the financial statements in the Form 10-K for further discussion of the sale of the Pilgrim plant; and
a decrease of $16 million in severance and retention expenses. Severance and retention expenses were incurred in 2020 and 2019 due to management’s strategy to exit the Entergy Wholesale Commodities merchant power business. See “MANAGEMENT’S FINANCIAL DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS - Entergy Wholesale Commodities Exit from the Merchant Power Business” below and in the Form 10-K for a discussion of management’s strategy to shut down and sell all of the remaining plants in the Entergy Wholesale Commodities merchant nuclear fleet. See Note 7 to the financial statements herein for further discussion of severance and retention expenses resulting from management’s strategy to shut down and sell all of the remaining plants in the Entergy Wholesale Commodities merchant nuclear fleet.

Asset write-offs, impairments, and related charges for the first quarter 2020 include impairment charges of $5 million ($4 million net-of-tax) as a result of expenditures for capital assets. Asset write-offs, impairments, and related charges for the first quarter 2019 include impairment charges of $74 million ($58 million net-of-tax) as a result of nuclear refueling outage spending and expenditures for capital assets. These costs were charged to expense as incurred as a result of the impaired fair value of the Entergy Wholesale Commodities nuclear plants’ long-lived assets due to the significantly reduced remaining estimated operating lives associated with management’s strategy to exit the Entergy Wholesale Commodities merchant power business. See “MANAGEMENT’S FINANCIAL DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS - Entergy Wholesale Commodities Exit from the Merchant Power Business” below and in the Form 10-K for a discussion of management’s strategy to shut down and sell all of the remaining plants in the Entergy

Wholesale Commodities merchant nuclear fleet. See Note 14 to the financial statements in the Form 10-K for a discussion of impairment of long-lived assets.

Other income decreased because of losses on decommissioning trust fund investments in the first quarter 2020 compared to the first quarter 2019. These losses reflect the equity market decline in March 2020 associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. See Notes 8 and 9 to the financial statements herein for a discussion of decommissioning trust fund investments.

Other expenses decreased primarily due to the absence of decommissioning expense from the Pilgrim plant, after it was sold in August 2019. See Note 14 to the financial statements in the Form 10-K for further discussion of the sale of the Pilgrim plant.

Income Taxes

The effective income tax rate was (136.6%) for the first quarter 2020. The difference in the effective income tax rate for the first quarter 2020 versus the federal statutory rate of 21% was primarily due to the settlement with the IRS on the treatment of funds received in conjunction with the Act 55 financing of Hurricane Isaac storm costs, permanent differences related to income tax deductions for stock-based compensation, amortization of excess accumulated deferred income taxes, certain book and tax differences related to utility plant items, and tax differences related to the allowance for equity funds used during construction, partially offset by state income taxes. See Note 10 to the financial statements herein for discussion of the IRS settlement and the income tax deductions for stock-based compensation. See Note 10 to the financial statements herein and Notes 2 and 3 to the financial statements in the Form 10-K for a discussion of the effects and regulatory activity regarding the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

The effective income tax rate was 14.2% for the first quarter 2019. The difference in the effective income tax rate for the first quarter 2019 versus the federal statutory rate of 21% was primarily due to amortization of excess accumulated deferred income taxes, partially offset by the tax effects of the disposition of Vermont Yankee. See Note 10 to the financial statements herein and Notes 2 and 3 to the financial statements in the Form 10-K for a discussion of the effects and regulatory activity regarding the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. See Note 3 to the financial statements in the Form 10-K for a discussion of the tax effects of the Vermont Yankee disposition.

Income Tax Legislation

Entergy Wholesale Commodities Exit from the Merchant Power Business

See “MANAGEMENT’S FINANCIAL DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS - Entergy Wholesale Commodities Exit from the Merchant Power Business” in the Form 10-K for a discussion of management’s strategy to shut down and sell all remaining plants in the Entergy Wholesale Commodities merchant nuclear fleet.  Following are updates to that discussion.
 
Shutdown and Sale of Pilgrim
 
As discussed in the Form 10-K, Pilgrim ceased operations in May 2019. In August 2019 the NRC approved the transfer of Pilgrim’s facility licenses to Holtec International. At that time, hearing requests filed by the

Entergy Corporation and Subsidiaries
Management's Financial Discussion and Analysis

Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Pilgrim Watch challenging Holtec’s financial qualifications and the sufficiency of the NRC’s review of the associated environmental impacts of the license transfer were pending with the NRC Commissioners. The NRC approval order included a condition acknowledging the NRC’s longstanding authority to modify, condition, or rescind the license transfer order as a result of any hearing that may be conducted.  On August 26, 2019, as permitted by the August 22 order, Entergy and Holtec closed the transaction. The NRC has not yet ruled on the Pilgrim Watch and Massachusetts hearing requests. In addition, on September 25, 2019, Massachusetts filed a petition with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, asking the court to vacate the NRC’s August 22 license transfer approval order and related approvals. On November 6, 2019, the court granted Entergy and Holtec intervenor status in the U.S. Court of Appeals proceeding. On November 22, 2019, Entergy and Holtec filed a motion to dismiss Massachusetts’s petition; the NRC also filed a motion to dismiss on the same date. On January 17, 2020, the States of New York, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Vermont filed a brief as amici curiae in support of Massachusetts’s petition. The court of appeals has not yet ruled on Massachusetts’s initial petition or on the NRC or Entergy/Holtec motions to dismiss. On January 22, 2020, Massachusetts filed a second petition with the D.C. Circuit asking the court to review the NRC’s December 17 order denying its stay motion. On February 12, 2020, the court granted Entergy and Holtec intervenor status in the proceeding on the second petition and consolidated the proceedings for Massachusetts’ two petitions. On February 26, 2020, Massachusetts filed its preliminary procedural filings. The court has not yet issued a scheduling order for the remainder of the proceeding.

Planned Shutdown and Sale of Indian Point 2 and Indian Point 3

As discussed in the Form 10-K, in April 2019, Entergy entered into an agreement to sell, directly or indirectly, 100% of the equity interests in the subsidiaries that own Indian Point 1, Indian Point 2, and Indian Point 3, after Indian Point 3 has been shut down and defueled, to a Holtec subsidiary for decommissioning. The sale will include the transfer of the licenses, spent fuel, decommissioning liabilities, and nuclear decommissioning trusts for the three units. Subject to the conditions discussed in the Form 10-K, the transaction is targeted to close in May 2021, following the defueling of Indian Point 3. As consideration for the transfer to Holtec of its interest in Indian Point, Entergy will receive nominal cash consideration. The terms of the transaction do not require a minimum level of funding in the nuclear decommissioning trusts as a condition to closing. The Indian Point transaction is expected to result in a loss based on the difference between Entergy’s adjusted net investment in the subsidiaries at closing and the sale price net of any agreed adjustments. As of March 31, 2020, Entergy’s adjusted net investment in the Indian Point units was $55 million. The primary variables in the ultimate loss that Entergy will incur are the values of the nuclear decommissioning trusts and the asset retirement obligations at closing, the financial results from plant operations until the closing, and the level of any unrealized deferred tax balances at closing. Indian Point 2 ceased operations on April 30, 2020.

Planned Shutdown and Sale of Palisades

As discussed in the Form 10-K, in July 2018, Entergy entered into a purchase and sale agreement to sell 100% of the equity interests in Entergy Nuclear Palisades, LLC, the owner of Palisades and the Big Rock Point Site, for $1,000 (subject to adjustment for net liabilities and other amounts). The sale of Entergy Nuclear Palisades will include the transfer of the nuclear decommissioning trust and obligation for spent fuel management and plant decommissioning. In February 2020 the parties signed an amendment to the purchase and sale agreement to remove the closing condition that the nuclear decommissioning trust fund must have a specified amount and Entergy agreed to contribute $20 million to the nuclear decommissioning trust fund at closing, among other amendments. Subject to the conditions discussed in the Form 10-K, the transaction is expected to close by the end of 2022. As of March 31, 2020, Entergy’s adjusted net investment in Palisades was $15 million. The primary variables in the ultimate loss or gain that Entergy will incur on the transaction are the values of the nuclear decommissioning trust and the asset retirement obligations at closing, the financial results from plant operations until the closing, and the level of any unrealized deferred tax balances at closing.

Costs Associated with Entergy Wholesale Commodities Strategic Transactions

Entergy expects to incur employee retention and severance expenses associated with management’s strategy to exit the Entergy Wholesale Commodities merchant power business of approximately $75 million in 2020, of which $21 million has been incurred as of March 31, 2020, and a total of approximately $55 million from 2021 through 2022. In addition, Entergy Wholesale Commodities incurred impairment charges related to nuclear fuel spending, nuclear refueling outage spending, and expenditures for capital assets of $5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. These costs were charged to expense as incurred as a result of the impaired value of certain of the Entergy Wholesale Commodities nuclear plants’ long-lived assets due to the significantly reduced remaining estimated operating lives associated with management’s strategy to exit the Entergy Wholesale Commodities merchant power business. Entergy expects to continue to incur costs associated with nuclear fuel-related spending and expenditures for capital assets and, except for Palisades, expects to continue to charge these costs to expense as incurred because Entergy expects the value of the plants to continue to be impaired.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

See “MANAGEMENT’S FINANCIAL DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS - Liquidity and Capital Resources” in the Form 10-K for a discussion of Entergy’s capital structure, capital expenditure plans and other uses of capital, and sources of capital.  Following are updates to that discussion.

Although the effect in the first quarter 2020 was minimal, Entergy expects negative changes during 2020 to its customer payment patterns and its cash flow activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. See “The COVID-19 Pandemic” section of Entergy Corporation and Subsidiaries Management’s Financial Discussion and Analysis for discussion of the COVID-19 pandemic. Additional discussion of Entergy’s liquidity and capital resources follows.

Capital Structure and Resources

Entergy’s debt to capital ratio is shown in the following table. The increase in the debt to capital ratio for Entergy as of March 31, 2020 is primarily due to the net issuance of debt in 2020.
