Affirms 2014 earnings guidance and provides an update to forecasted 2014 - 2017 capital expenditures

MADISON, Wis., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Alliant Energy Corporation (NYSE: LNT) today announced U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and non-GAAP consolidated earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations for 2013 and 2012 as follows:

"2013 was a good year for Alliant Energy, both financially and operationally," said Patricia Kampling, Alliant Energy Chairman, President and CEO.  "Financially, non-GAAP weather-normalized earnings increased 7 percent over 2012, at the top end of our projected long-term growth rate of 5 to 7 percent.  And operationally, we remain focused on our mission to safely deliver reliable power, and exceptional customer service, even during the extreme weather conditions we have been experiencing."

Utilities and Corporate Services - Alliant Energy's Utilities and Alliant Energy Corporate Services, Inc. (Corporate Services) operations generated $3.24 per share of non-GAAP EPS from continuing operations in 2013, which was $0.37 per share higher than 2012.  The primary drivers of higher EPS in 2013 when compared to 2012 were lower capacity charges, higher revenue requirement adjustment related to tax benefits at IPL, higher weather-normalized retail electric and gas sales, and lower energy conservation expenses.  These positive EPS drivers were partially offset by higher depreciation expense, higher generation and distribution expenses, and higher transmission expense.  The weather impact on electric and gas sales for the year was $0.17 per share and $0.12 per share in 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Non-regulated and Parent - Alliant Energy's non-regulated and parent operations generated $0.07 per share of non-GAAP EPS from continuing operations in 2013, which was $0.11 per share lower than 2012.  The primary drivers of non-regulated and parent year-over-year results were the anticipated losses related to the Franklin County wind project and lower sales at the Transportation business.

Earnings Adjustments - 2013 non-GAAP EPS excludes net losses of $0.02 per share from adjustments consisting of charges associated with preferred stock redemptions at IPL and WPL, and a regulatory-related credit at IPL related to its Whispering Willow - East wind project due to a December 2013 Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) order.  2012 non-GAAP EPS excludes net losses of $0.12 per share from adjustments consisting of increased tax obligations at the utilities due to state tax apportionment changes as a result of Alliant Energy's sale of the remainder of its RMT, Inc. business and regulatory-related credits.  Non-GAAP adjustments, which relate to material charges or income that are not normally associated with ongoing operations, are provided as a supplement to results reported in accordance with GAAP.  Refer to page 6 of this document for additional details of the earnings adjustments for 2013 and 2012.

"Our non-GAAP weather-normalized 2013 results were in-line with the guidance we released in the fourth quarter of 2012," said Patricia Kampling.  "Higher than expected weather-normalized retail sales and IPL tax benefits enabled us to increase generation and distribution operation and maintenance expenses to enhance reliability of our system."

Non-recurring state income tax impacts in 2012 - Alliant Energy utilizes state apportionment projections to record its deferred tax assets and liabilities for each reporting period.  These state apportionment projections are significantly impacted by the estimated amount of revenues expected in the future from each state jurisdiction for Alliant Energy's consolidated tax group, including both its regulated and non-regulated operations.  The forecasted amount of revenues from each state jurisdiction for Alliant Energy's consolidated tax group changed in the first quarter of 2012.  This resulted from the announced sale of the RMT business.  The change in the state apportionment projections resulted in non-recurring state income tax charges of $15 million ($8 million at IPL and $7 million at WPL), or $0.14 per share in the first quarter of 2012.

Revenue requirement adjustment related to tax benefits at IPL - In February 2013, the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) issued an order allowing IPL to recognize a revenue requirement adjustment related to certain tax benefits from tax accounting method changes.  In 2013, the revenue requirement adjustment resulted in increased earnings of $0.13 per share.

Lower income tax expense at IPL due to Iowa rate-making practices - In 2012, the Internal Revenue Service audit to review the change in accounting method for allocation of mixed service costs and repairs expenditures was completed.  Prior to 2012, tax expense and benefits related to mixed service costs and repairs book to tax differences were recorded in the tax benefit rider regulatory liability.  Upon completion of the IRS audit, the tax expenses and benefits related to mixed service costs and repairs began flowing through the income statement in 2012 pursuant to Iowa rate-making practices.  The impact of the changes in income tax impacts at IPL due to Iowa rate-making practices associated with mixed service and repairs projects resulted in a positive year-over-year variance of $0.06 per share.

2014 Earnings Guidance

Alliant Energy is affirming its 2014 earnings per share guidance as follows:

Utilities and Corporate Services

$3.20 - $3.40

Non-regulated and Parent

0.05 - 0.15

Alliant Energy Consolidated

$3.25 - $3.55

Drivers for Alliant Energy's 2014 earnings guidance include, but are not limited to:

  • Appropriate regulatory outcomes to allow IPL the ability to earn its authorized rate of return
  • Ability of WPL to earn its authorized rate of return
  • Stable economy and resulting implications on utility sales
  • Normal weather and operating conditions in its utility service territories
  • Continuing cost controls and operational efficiencies
  • Execution of IPL's and WPL's capital expenditure plans
  • Consolidated effective tax rate of 16%

The 2014 earnings guidance does not include the impacts of any non-cash valuation adjustments, regulatory-related charges or credits, reorganizations or restructurings, discontinued operations, future changes in laws or regulations, adjustments made to deferred tax assets and liabilities from valuation allowances and organizational structure changes, pending lawsuits and disputes, federal and state income tax audits and other Internal Revenue Service proceedings or changes in GAAP and tax methods of accounting that may impact the reported results of Alliant Energy.

"In 2014, we expect to see the earnings benefit of increasing IPL and WPL rate base and AFUDC resulting from utility investments," said Kampling.  "These increased earnings are expected to have little impact on base rates charged to customers since they are offset by lower purchased power capacity expense and lower pension expense."

Projected Capital Expenditures

Alliant Energy has updated its projected capital expenditures for 2014 through 2017 by removing transmission network upgrade capital expenditures since Alliant Energy anticipates ITC will elect the self-funding option for these projects.  Updated projected capital expenditures are as follows (in millions):
