TECO Energy Reports Third-Quarter Results

TECO Energy reaffirms its earnings-per-share guidance from continuing operations for 2012 in a range between $1.10 and $1.20, excluding charges or gains

TECO Energy, Inc. (NYSE:TE) today reported third quarter 2012 net income of $44.0 million, which included losses on the Guatemalan assets sold or held for sale (see Discontinued Operations below), or $0.20 per share, compared with $90.2 million, or $0.42 per share in the third quarter of 2011. Net income from continuing operations was $90.2 million, or $0.42 per share, in the 2012 third quarter, compared with net income from continuing operations of $86.1 million, or $0.40 per share, for the same period in 2011. The 2012 third-quarter loss of $46.2 million reported in discontinued operations reflected the operating results from TECO Guatemala, and the book loss, transaction fees and the charge related to foreign tax credits as a result of the sales agreements reported in September 2012.

The 2012 year-to-date net income was $167.6 million, or $0.78 per share, compared with $219.4 million, or $1.02 per share, for the same period in 2011. The 2012 year-to-date net income from continuing operations was $200.4 million, or $0.93 per share, compared with $203.5 million, or $0.95 per share, for the same period in 2011. The 2012 year-to-date loss reported in discontinued operations was $32.8 million.

TECO Energy President and Chief Executive Officer John Ramil said, “Our operating results this quarter reflect an improving Florida economy and outstanding cost control efforts by our team members at our utilities to offset the ongoing unfavorable weather patterns, and TECO Coal’s team members continue to deliver strong financial results in a weak coal market.

“Our agreement to sell the Guatemalan companies reflects our commitment to our utility operations and to obtain good value for our non-utility businesses. Faced with uncertainty in 2015, we took advantage of an attractive opportunity and entered into agreements to sell the operations this year.”

Non-GAAP Results

Tampa Electric

Tampa Electric’s net income for the third quarter was $73.5 million, compared with $75.0 million for the same period in 2011. Results for the quarter reflected a 1.4% higher average number of customers, lower base revenues due to milder weather, higher depreciation and operations and maintenance expenses and lower interest expense.

Total degree days in Tampa Electric's service area in the third quarter of 2012 were normal, but 7% below the same period in 2011. Pretax base revenue was approximately $4.0 million lower than in 2011, primarily reflecting rainy summer weather patterns. Total net energy for load, which is a calendar measurement of retail energy sales rather than a billing-cycle measurement, decreased 1.6% in the third quarter of 2012 compared with the same period in 2011. The quarterly energy sales shown on the statistical summary that accompanies this earnings release reflect the energy sales based on the timing of billing cycles, which can vary period to period. The summer weather pattern in the 2012 period reduced sales to residential and smaller commercial customers. Energy sales to industrial-phosphate customers increased due to the transfer of certain load from self-generation to Tampa Electric’s system. Sales to other industrial customers increased due to improvements in the Florida economy.

Operations and maintenance expense, excluding all Florida Public Service Commission (FPSC)-approved cost-recovery clauses, increased $3.6 million in 2012, reflecting higher generating system maintenance expenses and higher pension and other employee benefit expenses partially offset by lower bad-debt expense. Depreciation and amortization expense increased $2.5 million in 2012 due to additions to facilities to serve customers.

Year-to-date net income was $156.9 million, compared with $165.0 million in the 2011 period, driven primarily by lower energy sales due to milder weather, partially offset by 1.2% higher average number of customers, and higher depreciation and operations and maintenance expenses.

Year-to-date total degree days in Tampa Electric's service area were 3% above normal, primarily in the lower-load spring period, but 4% below the prior year-to-date period, reflecting mild winter weather and the rainy summer weather pattern. Pretax base revenue was almost $11.0 million lower than in 2011, primarily reflecting lower sales to residential customers from the milder weather and voluntary conservation that typically occurs during periods without extreme weather.

In the 2012 year-to-date period, total net energy for load was 0.6% lower than the same period in 2011. Milder weather reduced sales to higher-margin residential and smaller commercial customers, while industrial-other sales were higher,reflecting improvements in the Florida economy. Sales to interruptible industrial-phosphate customers increased due to the factors described above.

Year-to-date 2012 operations and maintenance expenses, excluding all FPSC-approved cost-recovery clauses, increased $5.1 million reflecting higher pension and other employee benefit expenses partially offset by lower bad-debt expense. Compared to the 2011 year-to-date period, depreciation and amortization expense increased $6.7 million, reflecting additions to facilities to serve customers.

Peoples Gas

Peoples Gas System reported net income of $7.0 million for the quarter, compared with $4.8 million recorded in the same period in 2011. Quarterly results reflected customer growth of 1.3% and higher therm sales to residential customers. Therms sold to commercial and interruptible industrial customers increased due to improved economic conditions. Volumes for the low-margin transportation service for electric power generators increased due to low natural gas prices, which made it more economical to use natural gas for power generation. Non-fuel operations and maintenance expense decreased $1.5 million compared to the 2011 period, due in part to an insurance recovery of legal expenses associated with environmental contamination claims, lower pipeline integrity cost, and lower bad-debt expense.

Year-to-date net income was $27.0 million, compared with $25.4 million for the same period in 2011. The 2012 results reflect customer growth of 1.1%, lower sales to residential customers due to mild winter weather more than offset by higher sales to commercial and industrial customers and power generation customers as discussed above. Non-fuel operations and maintenance expense decreased $3.1 million compared to the 2011 period, when operations and maintenance expenses included $2.1 million related to legal expenses associated with environmental contamination claims.

TECO Coal

TECO Coal reported third quarter net income of $17.4 million on sales of 1.9 million tons, compared with $14.1 million on sales of 2.1 million tons in the same period in 2011.

In 2012, third quarter results reflect an average net per-ton selling price, excluding transportation allowances, of more than $96 per ton, more than 7% higher than in 2011. In the third quarter of 2012, the all-in total per-ton cost of production was 3% higher than 2011 at approximately $84 per ton, which is below the middle of the cost guidance range previously provided. The 2012 per-ton cost of production increase was driven by spreading fixed costs over fewer tons. TECO Coal's effective income tax rate in the third quarter of 2012 was 26%, compared with 22% in the 2011 period.

TECO Coal recorded year-to-date net income of $39.4 million on sales of 4.9 million tons in 2012, compared with $38.1 million on sales of 6.2 million tons in the 2011 period. Lower sales volumes in the 2012 year-to-date period reflect the current coal market conditions. The 2012 year-to-date average net per-ton selling price was more than $95 per ton, compared with almost $87 per ton in 2011, and the all-in total per-ton cost of production was more than $85 per ton compared with $79 per ton in 2011. The 2012 year-to-date cost of production reflects higher surface mining costs due to increased diesel fuel usage as a result of trucking coal and overburden further due to the lack of new surface-mine permits, spreading fixed costs over fewer tons, and costs incurred in the first quarter associated with idling a section of a mine. These factors were partially offset by reduced overtime and lower contract miner costs in 2012. TECO Coal's effective income tax rate was 25%, compared with 22% in the 2011 year-to-date period.

Parent & other

The cost for Parent & other in continuing operations in the third quarter of 2012 was $7.7 million, compared with a cost of $7.8 million in the same period in 2011. The year-to-date Parent & other cost in continuing operations was $22.9 million in 2012, compared with $25.0 million in the 2011 period. Results for the 2012 quarter and year-to-date periods reflect tax items and lower interest expense as a result of mid-year 2011 debt retirement.

The total cost for Parent & other for the third quarter of 2012 was $11.3 million, compared with $8.1 million for the 2011 period. The total cost for Parent & other for the 2012 year-to-date period was $27.1 million, compared with $25.5 million in the same period in 2011. Total cost for the 2012 quarter and year-to-date periods reflect transaction costs and tax items related to the TECO Guatemala transactions.

Discontinued Operations

On Sept. 27, 2012, TECO Energy announced that its international power subsidiary, TECO Guatemala, entered into agreements to sell all of the equity interests in the Alborada and San José power stations, and related solid fuel handling and port facilities in Guatemala, for a total purchase price of $227.5 million in cash. The sale of the Alborada Power Station closed on the same date for a price of $12.5 million. As previously reported, under a separate agreement, C.F. Financeco, Ltd. (“C.F. Financeco”) held certain preferential rights to purchase ownership interests in the San José Power Station and related port facilities. On Oct. 17, 2012, C.F. Financeco exercised its preferential rights, and, as a result, on such date Guatemala Holdings II entered into an equity purchase agreement with C.F. Financeco pursuant to which it agreed to sell all of its ownership interests in the San José Power Station and related facilities for $213.5 million, on the same terms as contained in the original agreement.

The third quarter and year-to-date 2012 losses in discontinued operations of $46.2 million and $32.8 million, respectively, reflect the results from operations for the generating plants in Guatemala, a $31.2 million loss on assets sold and held for sale including transaction costs, and a $22.6 million charge associated with foreign tax credits.

2013 Business Factors

The factors that are expected to drive results in 2013 include continued customer growth at the Florida utilities consistent with the trends experienced through the first nine months of 2012, driven by continued improvements in the state and Tampa-area economies. Tampa Electric has experienced steady growth in the number of new customers since the fourth quarter of 2009, and customer growth in 2012 has increased from 1.0% in the first quarter to 1.4% in the third quarter.

At Tampa Electric, total retail energy sales growth is expected to average about 0.5% lower than customer growth. Sales to the lower margin industrial-phosphate customers are expected to be lower in 2013 due to increased self-generation following outages of customers’ generating equipment that increased sales to these customers in 2012. Peoples Gas expects to benefit from continued interest from customers utilizing petroleum and other fuel sources to convert to natural gas due to the attractive economics.

Tampa Electric has filed for the determination of need with the FPSC for the conversion of the four simple-cycle combustion turbines at the Polk Power Station to combined-cycle service (Docket number 120234-EI). Hearings are scheduled for December 2012 with a final decision scheduled for January 2013.

TECO Coal has 2.5 million tons of thermal coal contracted for 2013 at prices between $75 and $82 per ton. Total expected volume, selling price and cost of production for 2013 will be determined at the conclusion of the metallurgical coal contracting cycle, which is currently under way but proceeding more slowly than in recent years. The general expectation in the current coal market environment is that average prices for metallurgical and PCI coal will be lower in 2013 than in 2012. TECO Coal will mine to profitably meet demand for its products, which may result in fewer total tons being mined in 2013 than in 2012.

Non-GAAP Presentation

Management believes it is helpful to present a non-GAAP measure of performance that reflects the ongoing operations of TECO Energy’s businesses and that allows investors to better understand and evaluate the business as it is expected to operate in future periods.

Management and the board of directors use non-GAAP measures as a yardstick for measuring the company’s performance, for making decisions that are dependent upon the profitability of the company’s various operating units, and for determining levels of incentive compensation.

The non-GAAP measures of financial performance used by the company are not measures of performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and should not be considered an alternative to net income or other GAAP figures as an indicator of the company’s financial performance or liquidity. TECO Energy’s non-GAAP presentation of net income may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The Results Reconciliation table below presents non-GAAP financial results after elimination of the effects of certain identified charges and gains. This provides investors additional information to assess the company’s results and future earnings potential.
