Portland General Electric announces second quarter 2018 results

Settlement of Carty Generating Station litigation allows for full offset of incremental construction costs
Increasing guidance from $2.10-$2.25 to $2.25-$2.40 per diluted share
SP Global upgraded PGE’s issuer credit rating from BBB to BBB+

PORTLAND, Ore. - Portland General Electric Company (NYSE: POR) today reported net income of $46 million, or 51 cents per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2018. This compares with net income of $32 million, or 36 cents per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2017.

“I’m pleased to put the Carty litigation behind us and recognize the increase in our credit ratings,” said Maria Pope, president and CEO. “In addition, we’re making progress in bringing customers new renewable resources and programs, including our renewable RFP and green tariff.”

Q2 2018 earnings compared with Q2 2017 earnings

Lower natural gas prices and reduced plant maintenance expenses drove the increase in second quarter earnings per diluted share for 2018 in comparison with second quarter of 2017. Additionally, a decrease in distribution-related expenses due to the absence of major storms in 2018 and an increase in production tax credits was partially offset by gross margin due to temperatures that were warmer than prior year as well as increased administrative expenses.

Company update

Carty Generating Station

On July 16, 2018, PGE entered into a settlement with the other parties to resolve all claims relating to Carty construction between PGE and each of the Abeinsa EPC LLC; Abener Construction Services, LLC; Teyma Construction USA, LLC; and Abeinsa Abener Teyma General Partnership (collectively, the Contractor); Abengoa S.A., Liberty Mutual Insurance Company and Zurich American Insurance Company (together, the Sureties). Under the terms of the settlement, (i) the Sureties have paid $130 million to PGE, and (ii) the Contractor, Abengoa S.A., and the Sureties have released all claims against PGE arising out of the Carty construction, and in return, PGE has released all such claims against the Contractor, Abengoa S.A., and the Sureties.

2019 General Rate Case

On February 15, 2018 the 2019 General Rate Case was filed, and parties are currently in the testimony phase. Several settlement discussions have been held with parties and have resulted in agreement on all power-cost related matters as well as some non-power-cost items, such as cost of capital. Stipulations regarding these agreements are in progress and will become available in the coming weeks.

PGE filed reply testimony on the remaining items on July 13, 2018, and held additional settlement discussions on July 23, 2018. A final order is expected from the Oregon Public Utility Commission (OPUC) by the end of the year, with a price change effective January 1, 2019.


Renewable Request for Proposal (RFP)

PGE issued an RFP on May 22, 2018 for the 100 average megawatts of renewable resources needed as identified in its 2016 Integrated Resource Plan. All submissions were due on June 15, 2018. As planned, PGE submitted a self-build benchmark proposal for a greenfield wind project. The bids are currently under review with oversight from an independent third-party evaluator appointed by the OPUC to ensure that all bids are evaluated consistently and impartially. A shortlist will be established and submitted to the OPUC in October with final contract execution expected by December 31, 2018.

2018 earnings guidance

$0.12 per diluted share attributed to Carty settlement
Flat retail deliveries, weather-adjusted
Normal hydro conditions for the remainder of the year, based on the current hydro forecast
Wind generation for the remainder of the year, based on five years of historical levels or forecast studies when historical data is not available
Normal thermal plant operations for the remainder of the year
Depreciation and amortization expense between $365 and $385 million
Operating and maintenance costs between $565 and $585 million
