  • Second quarter 2018 adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.83 (non-GAAP measure) an increase of 13.7 percent, excluding the benefit from an insurance settlement related to the Freedom Industries chemical spill
  • Achieved strong results in both the Regulated Businesses and the Market-Based Businesses
  • Completed Pivotal Home Solutions acquisition in our Market-Based Businesses
  • Affirmed 2018 earnings guidance range

VOORHEES, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 1, 2018-- American Water Works Company, Inc. (NYSE: AWK) today reported results for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

“American Water employees delivered a strong second quarter with 2018 adjusted earnings per share up 13.7 percent compared to last year. Our second quarter results demonstrate that we continue to grow our business through the consistent execution of our strategies,” said Susan Story, president and chief executive officer of American Water.

“We saw strong growth in both our Regulated and Market-Based Businesses in the second quarter. We invested a total of $1.1 billion, with $713 million invested in our Regulated Businesses to ensure safe and reliable service, and $363 million to close on the Pivotal Home Solutions addition to our legacy Homeowner Services Group in our Market-Based Businesses.

“Our Regulated Businesses added 10,300 customers to date through closed acquisitions and organic growth. We also recently announced an agreement to acquire the Exeter Township Wastewater System in Pennsylvania with 9,000 customer connections, as well as the Roxbury Water System in New Jersey with 3,900 customer connections. We look forward to welcoming and serving these new customers in the coming months. Notably, we received the final approval of our global settlement for Freedom Industries by the U.S. District Court, and settled with our final insurance carrier.

“In addition to the acquisition of Pivotal Home Solutions, we announced on July 5 that we had entered into an agreement for the majority of our Contract Services Group to be sold to Veolia North America. We have already closed on 17 of the 23 contracts, with the remainder to close by the end of the year. These efforts reflect the continued optimization of our Market-Based Businesses segment.

“We remain on track to meet our long term compound annual earnings growth outlook in the top half of the 7-10 percent range and we are affirming our 2018 earnings guidance to a non-GAAP range of $3.22 to $3.32 per diluted share,” added Story.

Consolidated Results

The Company's three and six months ended results are included in the table below.

         
    For the Three Months Ended June 30,   For the Six Months Ended June 30,
    2018   2017   2018   2017
Diluted earnings per share (GAAP):                
Net income attributable to common stockholders   $ 0.91     $ 0.73     $ 1.50     $ 1.26
                 
Non-GAAP adjustment:                
Impact of Freedom Industries settlement activities   (0.11 )       (0.11 )  
Income tax impact   0.03         0.03    
Total net non-GAAP adjustment   (0.08 )       (0.08 )  
                 
Adjusted diluted earnings per share (non-GAAP)   $ 0.83     $ 0.73     $ 1.42     $ 1.26
                               

In the second quarter 2018, the global settlement related to the Freedom Industries chemical spill class action litigation in West Virginia received final court approval and the Company settled with its remaining general liability insurance carrier relating to this matter resulting in a benefit to the Company of $20 million, or $0.08 per diluted share. Consistent with all other elements of the global settlement, this benefit is shown as a non-GAAP adjustment.

Adjusted earnings were $0.83 per diluted share (a non-GAAP measure) for the second quarter 2018, an increase of $0.10 per diluted share, or 13.7 percent, over the same period in 2017. This increase was from growth in our Regulated and Market-Based Businesses. Net income from the Regulated Businesses increased $0.08 per diluted share or 10.3 percent from increases in authorized revenue driven by capital investments, acquisitions and organic growth. Net income from the Market-Based Businesses increased $0.02 per diluted share, primarily from stronger results in the Homeowner Services Group.

For the first six months of 2018, adjusted earnings were $1.42 per diluted share, an increase of $0.16 per diluted share, or 12.7 percent, over the same period in 2017. Net income from the Regulated Businesses increased $0.13 per diluted share or 9.9 percent from increases in authorized revenue driven by capital investments, acquisitions and organic growth. Net income from the Market-Based Businesses increased $0.05 per diluted share, primarily from stronger results in the Homeowner Services Group and lower taxes and the parent company decreased $0.02 primarily from the lower tax shield on interest expense.

For the first six months of 2018, the company made capital investments of approximately $1.1 billion, including $713 million dedicated primarily to improving infrastructure in the Regulated Businesses, $363 million for the Pivotal acquisition, and $14 million for regulated acquisitions. American Water plans to invest in the range of $2.0 billion to $2.1 billion, including the acquisition of Pivotal Home Solutions (“Pivotal”), across its footprint in 2018.

Regulated Businesses

         
    For the Three Months Ended June 30,   For the Six Months Ended June 30,
    2018   2017   2018   2017
Net income (GAAP)   $ 167     $ 140     $ 271     $ 234
Non-GAAP adjustment:                
Impact of Freedom Industries settlement activities   (20 )       (20 )  
Income tax impact   5         5    
Net non-GAAP adjustment   (15 )       (15 )  
                 
Adjusted net income (non-GAAP)   $ 152     $ 140     $ 256     $ 234
                               

In the second quarter of 2018, GAAP net income in the Regulated Businesses was $167 million, compared to $140 million for the same period in 2017.

The 2018 GAAP net income includes an after-tax benefit of $15 million from the insurance settlement related to the Freedom Industries chemical spill discussed above and is reflected as a non-GAAP adjustment.

In the second quarter of 2018, adjusted net income in the Regulated Businesses was $152 million, compared to $140 million for the same period in 2017. Regulated revenue decreased approximately $2 million driven by a $35 million increase from additional authorized revenue and surcharges to support infrastructure investments, acquisitions, and organic growth that was more than offset by the $38 million impact of the lower federal tax rate under the Tax Cut and Jobs Act (the "TCJA") expected to benefit customers. The company had higher production expense of $3 million due mainly to purchased water price and usage increases in our California subsidiary and higher O&M expense of $8 million to support regulated growth. In addition, depreciation expense increased $4 million from infrastructure investment growth. Income taxes were lower by $31 million from the lower federal tax rate under the TCJA.

For the first six months of 2018, adjusted net income in the Regulated Businesses was $256 million, compared to $234 million for the same period in 2017. Regulated revenue increased $5 million driven by a $75 million increase from additional authorized revenue and surcharges to support infrastructure investments, acquisitions, and organic growth; largely offset by $70 million resulting from the lower federal tax rate under the TCJA that is expected to benefit customers. The Company had higher production expense of $9 million due mainly to purchased water price and usage increases in our California subsidiary and O&M increased $23 million to support regulated acquisition and other growth, as well as higher main breaks from the harsh frigid weather conditions across several regulated states during the first quarter of 2018. In addition, depreciation expense increased $9 million from infrastructure investment growth. Income taxes were lower by $53 million as a result of the lower federal tax rate under the TCJA.

Through June 30, 2018, the company received additional annualized revenues of approximately $95 million from general rate cases and approximately $15 million from infrastructure surcharges. The company is awaiting final orders for general rate cases in four states and filed infrastructure surcharge in one, for a total annualized revenue request of approximately $169 million, adjusted for certain impacts of the TCJA. The extent to which requested rate increases will be granted by the applicable regulatory agencies will vary.

For the 12-month period ended June 30, 2018, the company's adjusted regulated O&M efficiency ratio (a non-GAAP financial measure) improved to 35.3 percent, compared to 36.3 percent for the 12-month period ended June 30, 2017. For period-to-period comparability purposes, both of these ratios present the estimated impact of the TCJA on operating revenues for the Regulated Businesses on a pro forma basis, as if the lower federal corporate income tax rate had been in effect for these periods. By reducing O&M expense as a proportion of revenue, American Water is able to make investments in needed capital improvements without significantly impacting customer bills.

Market-Based Businesses

On June 4, 2018, American Water completed the acquisition of Pivotal, for $363 million, including estimated working capital.

In the second quarter of 2018, net income in the Market-Based Businesses was $13 million, compared to $9 million for the same period in 2017. The increase was primarily driven by growth in the Homeowner Services Group through customer growth and cost management and the impact of the lower federal income tax rate under the TCJA.

For the first six months of 2018, net income in the Market-Based Businesses was $25 million, compared to $15 million for the same period in 2017. The increase was primarily driven by growth in the Homeowner Services Group through customer growth and cost management and the impact of the lower federal income tax rate under the TCJA.

On July 5, 2018, the Company entered into an agreement for the sale of the majority of our Contract Services Group to subsidiaries of Veolia Environment for $27 million. The sale agreement includes the transfer of 23 of our Contract Services Group’s 33 O&M contracts, of which 17 have closed and the remainder are expected to close by year end.

Dividends

On July 27, 2018, American Water’s board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend payment of $0.455 per share of common stock, payable on September 4, 2018, to all stockholders of record as of August 10, 2018.

2018 Earnings Guidance

American Water is providing its 2018 earnings guidance GAAP range of $3.30 - $3.40 per diluted share , which includes an $0.08 per diluted share benefit of the company's settlement with its general liability insurance carrier relating the Freedom Industries chemical spill class action litigation in West Virginia. Excluding this benefit, the company affirms its 2018 earnings guidance to a non-GAAP range of $3.22 - $3.32 per diluted share. The company’s earnings forecasts are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including, without limitation, those described under “Forward-Looking Statements” below and under “Risk Factors” in its annual and quarterly reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes presentations of adjusted net income, as well as adjusted earnings per diluted share both as historical financial information and as earnings guidance (“Adjusted EPS”). These items constitute “non-GAAP financial measures” under SEC rules. These non-GAAP financial measures are derived from American Water’s consolidated financial information but are not presented in its financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Each of adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS is defined as GAAP net income and earnings per diluted common share, respectively, excluding the impact in the second quarter of 2018 of the insurance settlement related to the Freedom Industries chemical spill. These non-GAAP financial measures supplement the company’s GAAP disclosures and should not be considered as an alternative to the GAAP measure.

Management believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to American Water’s investors because they provide an indication of its baseline performance excluding items that are not considered by management to be reflective of ongoing operating results. Although management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate American Water’s results of operations, management does not intend results excluding the adjustment to represent results as defined by GAAP, and the reader should not consider them as indicators of performance. The company’s definition of adjusted net income or Adjusted EPS may not be comparable to the same or similar measures used by other companies, and, accordingly, these non-GAAP financial measures may have significant limitations on their use.

Set forth in this release is a table that reconciles adjusted net income, as well as Adjusted EPS, both for historical and guidance purposes, to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

This press release also includes a presentation of adjusted Regulated O&M efficiency ratio, which, in addition to the pro forma adjustment for the impact of the TCJA, excludes from its calculation estimated purchased water revenues and purchased water expenses, the impact of certain Freedom Industries, Inc. chemical spill settlement activities recognized in 2016, 2017 and 2018, and the allocable portion of non-O&M support services costs, mainly depreciation and general taxes. This item constitutes a “non-GAAP financial measure” under SEC rules. This item is derived from American Water's consolidated financial information but is not presented in its financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure supplements and should be read in conjunction with the company's GAAP disclosures and should not be considered as an alternative to any GAAP measure.

Management believes that the presentation of this measure is useful to investors because it provides a means of evaluating the company's operating performance without giving effect to items that are not reflective of management's ability to increase efficiency of the company's regulated operations. In preparing operating plans, budgets and forecasts, and in assessing historical performance, management relies, in part, on trends in the company's historical results, exclusive of estimated revenues and expenses related to purchased water, the Freedom Industries chemical spill settlement activities and the allocable portion of non-O&M support services costs. The company's definition of this metric may not be comparable to the same or similar measures used by other companies, and, accordingly, this non-GAAP financial measure may have significant limitations on its use.

Set forth in this release is a table that reconciles each of the components used to calculate adjusted O&M efficiency ratio to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
