Entergy Reports Second Quarter Earnings
Company affirms guidance and financial outlooks, expects results in top half of ranges

NEW ORLEANS – Entergy Corporation (NYSE: ETR) reported a second quarter 2021 loss per share of (3) cents on an as-reported basis and earnings per share of $1.34 on an adjusted basis (non-GAAP). The as-reported loss included an impairment of $340 million ($268 million net-of-tax) resulting from the sale of Indian Point Energy Center.

“We executed on key deliverables and achieved solid second quarter results,” said Entergy Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Leo Denault. “Our multi-year efforts to de-risk our business, as recently recognized by Moody’s, have unlocked greater financial flexibility, which helps us manage risks and lower our equity needs. As a result, we expect to achieve results in the upper half of guidance and outlook ranges. Our underlying growth outlook is driven by investments that will improve customer outcomes, including those that will provide clean, sustainable energy.”

Business highlights included the following:
The Arkansas Public Service Commission approved Entergy Arkansas’ Walnut Bend Solar project.
Entergy Texas began the process to seek approval to construct hydrogen-capable Orange County Advanced Power Station.
The Mississippi Public Service Commission approved Entergy Mississippi’s annual FRP filing.



Entergy Arkansas, Entergy Louisiana, and Entergy New Orleans each submitted their annual FRP filings.
Entergy New Orleans’ Green Power Option achieved Green-e® Energy Certification by the Center for Resource Solutions.
Entergy completed the sale of Indian Point.
EEI announced Entergy Corporation as a recipient of three EEI emergency response awards.
For the sixth consecutive year, Entergy was named to The Civic 50, a Points of Light initiative honoring the 50 most community-minded companies in the U.S.

Consolidated Results

For second quarter 2021, the company reported a loss of $(6 million), or (3) cents per share, on an as-reported basis, and earnings of $269 million, or $1.34 per share, on an adjusted basis. This compared to second quarter 2020 earnings of $361 million, or $1.79 per share, on an as-reported basis, and earnings of $276 million, or $1.37 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 second quarter 2021, the Utility business reported earnings attributable to Entergy Corporation of $326 million, or $1.62 per share, on both an as-reported and an adjusted basis. This compared to second quarter 2020 earnings of $345 million, or $1.71 per share, on both an as-reported and an adjusted basis. Drivers for the quarter included:
higher other O&M primarily due to higher non-nuclear generation and nuclear expenses, higher distribution spending, as well as higher benefits costs; and
higher depreciation expense.

These drivers were partially offset by:
higher retail sales from volume, including recovery from COVID-19; and
the net effect of regulatory actions across the operating companies.

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

Parent & Other

For second quarter 2021, Parent & Other reported a loss attributable to Entergy Corporation of $(57 million), or (28) cents per share, on both an as-reported and an adjusted basis. This compared to a second quarter 2020 loss of $(69 million), or (34) cents per share, on both an as-reported and an adjusted basis. The primary driver was an income tax item recorded in second quarter 2021 related to the reversal of a valuation allowance for interest deductibility.

Entergy Wholesale Commodities

For second quarter 2021, EWC reported a loss attributable to Entergy Corporation of $(275 million), or $(1.37) per share, on an as-reported basis. This compared to second quarter 2020 earnings attributable to Entergy Corporation of $85 million, or 42 cents per share, on an as-reported basis. Drivers for the quarter included:
a loss of $340 million ($268 million net-of-tax) as a result of the sale of Indian Point;
performance of decommissioning trust funds; and
lower revenue primarily due to the shutdown of Indian Point 2 and Indian Point 3.

These drivers were partially offset by:
lower operating expenses primarily due to the shutdown of Indian Point 2 and Indian Point 3; and
lower decommissioning expense due to the sale of Indian Point.

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 2021 adjusted EPS guidance range of $5.80 to $6.10, and the company expects results to be in the upper half of the range. See webcast presentation for additional details.

The company has provided 2021 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 $(1.10) in 2021. This estimate is subject to substantial uncertainty due to, among other things, the potential effects of exiting the EWC business.

The telephone replay will be available through August 11, 2021, by dialing 855-859-2056, conference ID 9088373.

Entergy Corporation is an integrated energy company engaged in electric power production, transmission and retail distribution operations. Entergy delivers electricity to nearly 3 million utility customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Entergy owns and operates one of the cleanest large-scale U.S. power generating fleets with approximately 30,000 megawatts of electric generating capacity, including 7,000 megawatts of nuclear power. Headquartered in New Orleans, Louisiana, Entergy has annual revenues of $10 billion and approximately 12,500 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 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 ROE, excluding affiliate preferred; 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 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 and FFO 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) exclude 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, statements regarding Entergy’s 2021 earnings guidance; its current financial and operational outlooks; and other statements of Entergy’s plans, beliefs, or expectations included in this news release. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which apply only as of the date of this news release. Except to the extent required by the federal securities laws, Entergy undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.

Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties, and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements, including (a) those factors discussed elsewhere in this news release and in Entergy’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, any subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, and Entergy’s other reports and filings made under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934; (b) uncertainties associated with (1) rate proceedings, formula rate plans, and other cost recovery mechanisms, including the risk that costs may not be recoverable to the extent anticipated by the utilities and (2) implementation of the ratemaking effects of changes in law; (c) uncertainties associated with efforts to remediate the effects of major storms and recover related restoration costs; (d) risks associated with operating nuclear facilities, including plant relicensing, operating, and regulatory costs and risks; (e) changes in decommissioning trust fund values or earnings or in the timing or cost of decommissioning Entergy’s nuclear plant sites; (f) legislative and regulatory actions and risks and uncertainties associated with claims or litigation by or against Entergy and its subsidiaries; (g) risks and uncertainties associated with executing on business strategies, including strategic transactions that Entergy or its subsidiaries may undertake and the risk that any such transaction may not be completed as and when expected and the risk that the anticipated benefits of the transaction may not be realized; (h) effects of changes in federal, state, or local laws and regulations and other governmental actions or policies, including changes in monetary, fiscal, tax, environmental, or energy policies; (i) the effects of changes in commodity markets, capital markets, or economic conditions; (j) impacts from a terrorist attack, cybersecurity threats, data security breaches, or other attempts to disrupt Entergy’s business or operations, and/or other catastrophic events; (k) the direct and indirect impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on Entergy and its customers; and (l) the effects of technological change, including the costs, pace of development and commercialization of new and emerging technologies.

OCF increased quarter-over-quarter due primarily to higher collections from Utility customers. This was largely offset by the timing of fuel and purchased power cost recovery, primarily related to increased fuel costs; higher severance and retention payouts at EWC; payments related to storm restoration (non-capital portion); and lower DOE proceeds. Intercompany income tax payments contributed to the line of business variances but were immaterial at the consolidated level.

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 and Utility income taxes–other exclude $14 million in second quarter 2021 and $15 million in second quarter 2020 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 and Utility income taxes–other exclude $54 million in 2021 and $45 million in 2020 for the return of unprotected excess ADIT to customers (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 second quarter and year-to-date earnings increases were driven by higher volume/weather, including recovery from COVID-19; E-LA’s FRP; E-TX’s GCRR, TCRF and DCRF; E-NO NOPS recovery; and E-MS’s FRP. The variance also reflected a regulatory credit for E-MS, primarily for its 2020 lookback evaluation, a reserve adjustment for the FERC MSS-4 ROE decision, higher Grand Gulf revenue due primarily to improved capacity factors (earnings neutral), as well as regulatory credits for the difference between decommissioning expenses and decommissioning trust earnings plus decommissioning costs collected in revenue (largely earnings neutral, offset in Utility other income (deductions)–other). The year-to-date variance also reflected recovery of the Lake Charles Power Station, the reversal of a regulatory provision for E-AR’s 2019 netting adjustment (which was subsequently adjusted), and a first quarter 2020 regulatory liability for tax sharing with E-LA customers (partially offsets the Hurricane Isaac Act 55 income tax item discussed in footnote r).
f.The second quarter and year-to-date earnings decreases were due largely to lower revenues from the shutdown of Indian Point 2 in April 2020 and Indian Point 3 in April 2021.
g.The second quarter and year-to-date earnings decreases from higher Utility other O&M were due primarily to higher non-nuclear generation expenses related to timing and scope of outages and new plants placed in service, higher nuclear generation expenses; higher distribution expenses, including higher reliability and vegetation costs; higher benefits costs, primarily health claims activity; and the impact of DOE awards recorded in second quarter 2020. Higher information technology costs as well as higher contract costs related to new customer initiatives also contributed. The year-to-date decrease also reflects lower nuclear insurance refunds.
h.The second 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 and Indian Point 3 in April 2021, as well as lower severance and retention expenses.
i.The second quarter and year-to-date earnings decreases from higher EWC asset write-offs and impairments were due primarily to a $340 million ($268 million net-of-tax) loss which resulted from the sale of Indian Point in May 2021.
j.The second quarter earnings increase from lower EWC decommissioning expense was due to the sale of Indian Point in May 2021.
k.The second quarter and year-to-date earnings decreases from higher Utility depreciation expense were due primarily to higher plant in service, including MCPS. The year-to-date decrease also reflected LCPS.
l.The second quarter and year-to-date earnings decreases from lower Utility other income (deductions)–other were due largely to changes in decommissioning trust fund returns (based on regulatory treatment, decommissioning-related variances are largely earnings neutral), as well as lower AFUDC as a result of higher construction work in progress in 2020.
m.The second quarter earnings decrease from lower EWC other income (deductions)–other and the year-to-date earnings increase from higher EWC other income (deductions)–other were due largely to the performance of nuclear decommissioning trust fund investments. The transfer of investments in May 2021 as part of the sale of Indian Point also contributed to the variances.
n.The second quarter earnings increase from Parent & Other income taxes–other reflected a reversal of a $9 million valuation allowance related to the interest expense limitation. The year-to-date increase also reflected $23 million of income tax expense recorded in first quarter 2020 as a result of the IRS settlement related to the Hurricane Isaac Act 55 financing (discussed in footnote r).
o.The year-to-date earnings increase from lower EWC taxes other than income taxes was due primarily to the shutdown of Indian Point 2 in April 2020 and Indian Point 3 in April 2021.
p.The year-to-date earnings increase from lower EWC depreciation expense was due primarily to the shutdown of Indian Point 2 in April 2020 and Indian Point 3 in April 2021.
q.The year-to-date earnings decrease from higher Utility interest expense was due primarily to higher debt balances at E-LA and E-MS.
r.The year-to-date earnings decrease from Utility income taxes–other primarily relates to two first quarter 2020 items. First, a $55 million tax benefit was recorded in first quarter 2020 as a result of an IRS settlement related to Act 55 financing of Hurricane Isaac costs (partly offset by customer sharing, discussed in footnote e); and second, an annual tax accrual related to stock-based compensation resulted in a $22 million income tax benefit in first quarter 2020.

s.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 billed retail sales increased 4.0 percent driven by reduced impacts from COVID-19. Residential billed sales decreased (2.9) percent and commercial billed sales increased 6.4 percent. Industrial billed sales volume increased 7.1 percent reflecting continued growth from new/expansion customers, higher sales to cogeneration customers, and higher sales to existing large and small customers partially due to reduced COVID-19 impacts and economic recovery.
