Duke Energy Corp.'s Regulated Utilities segment recognized adjusted income of $689 million in Q2 2014, compared to $590 million in the same period last year. The adjusted income was boosted by factors including higher revenues from new pricing and riders, favorable weather, lower effective tax rate, lower operating maintenance expenses, and an increased wholesale rate margin. These favorable factors were partially offset by higher depreciation, amortization, interest expenses, and lower allowance for funds used during construction (AFUDC) equity. The company's International Energy segment reported Q2 2014 adjusted income of $146 million, compared to $87 million in the prior year period. The segment's improved quarterly earnings were prompted by primarily the favourable results in Latin America mainly due to a tax benefit resulting from the reorganization in its Chile operations, and the improved results at National Methanol Company. Some of the benefits from this segment were relatively offset by unfavorable foreign currency exchange rates. The company's Commercial Power segment recognized Q2 2014 adjusted income of $16 million, compared to a segment loss of $3 million in the year ago period. The improved earnings were driven by higher results from renewable business, Midwest coal and gas generation fleets. Sign up and read the free analyst's notes on DUK at:
