Cision
  • Second-quarter 2022 GAAP reported net loss of $0.58 per share

  • Second-quarter 2022 operating earnings of $0.77 per share

  • Company initiates third-quarter 2022 operating earnings guidance of $0.98 to $1.13 per share

  • Company affirms full-year 2022 operating earnings guidance as well as other long-term earnings and dividend guidance

RICHMOND, Va., Aug. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Dominion Energy (NYSE: D) today announced an unaudited net loss determined in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (reported earnings) for the three months ended June 30, 2022, of $453 million ($0.58 per share) compared with net income of $285 million ($0.33 per share) for the same period in 2021.

Operating earnings for the three months ended June 30, 2022, were $658 million ($0.77 per share), compared to operating earnings of $628 million ($0.76 per share) for the same period in 2021.

The difference between GAAP and operating earnings for the three months ended June 30, 2022, reflect the mark-to-market impact of economic hedging activities, gains and losses on nuclear decommissioning trust funds, charges associated with the sale of Kewaunee nuclear power station, regulated asset retirements and other adjustments.

Operating earnings are defined as reported earnings adjusted for certain items. Details of operating earnings as compared to prior periods, business segment results and detailed descriptions of items included in reported earnings but excluded from operating earnings can be found on Schedules 1, 2, 3 and 4 of this release.

Important note to investors regarding operating, reported earnings
Dominion Energy uses operating earnings as the primary performance measurement of its earnings guidance and results for public communications with analysts and investors. Dominion Energy also uses operating earnings internally for budgeting, for reporting to the Board of Directors, for the company's incentive compensation plans and for its targeted dividend payouts and other purposes. Dominion Energy management believes operating earnings provide a more meaningful representation of the company's fundamental earnings power.

In providing its operating earnings guidance, the company notes that there could be differences between expected reported earnings and estimated operating earnings for matters such as, but not limited to, acquisitions, divestitures or extreme weather events and other natural disasters. Dominion Energy management is not able to estimate the aggregate impact of these items on future period reported earnings.

Determined in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).








2)

Adjustments to reported earnings are included in Corporate and Other segment reported GAAP earnings. Refer to Schedules 2 and 3 for details, or find









"GAAP Reconciliation" in the Earnings Release Kit on Dominion Energy's website at investors.dominionenergy.com.








3)

The calculation of reported and operating earnings per share on a consolidated basis utilizes shares outstanding on a diluted basis with all dilutive impacts, primarily consisting of potential shares which had not yet been issued, reflected in the Corporate and Other segment. As a result of a reported net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2022, any adjustments to earnings or shares would be considered antidilutive and are excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share. Effective January 2022, the calculation of diluted reported and operating earnings per share assumes conversion, if dilutive, of the Series A preferred stock to common stock as of January 1, 2022. The Series A preferred stock was reclassified to a liability in June 2022. In prior periods, a fair value adjustment of the Series A preferred stock was included in the calculation of diluted reported earnings per share if dilutive. No adjustments were necessary for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021. During each quarter of 2022, the calculation of reported and operating earnings per share includes the impact of preferred dividends associated with preferred stock of $9 million (Series B) and $11 million (Series C, issued in December 2021). Reported earnings per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 also includes the impact of preferred dividends associated with Series A preferred stock of $5 million and $12 million, respectively. During each quarter of 2021, the calculation of reported and operating earnings per share includes the impact of preferred dividends associated with preferred stock of $7 million (Series A) and $9 million (Series B). See Forms 10-Q and 10-K for additional information.

Schedule 2 - Reconciliation of 2022 Reported Earnings to Operating Earnings

2022 Earnings (Six months ended June 30, 2022)

The $1.6 billion pre-tax net loss of the adjustments included in 2022 reported earnings, but excluded from operating earnings, is primarily related to the following items:

  • $382 million net market loss associated with nuclear decommissioning trusts and economic hedging activities.

  • $649 million loss associated with the sale of Kewaunee nuclear power station.

  • $535 million of regulated asset retirements and other charges, including $371 million of charges for certain Virginia Power fuel and Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) compliance costs deemed recovered through base rates and $122 million associated with the settlement of Virginia Power's 2021 triennial review.

  • $94 million of storm damage and restoration costs associated with storms in Virginia Power's service territory.
