DETROIT, Nov. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DTE Energy (NYSE:DTE) today reported third quarter earnings of $332 million, or $1.61 per diluted share, compared with $387 million, or $1.99 per diluted share in 2022.

Operating earnings for the third quarter 2023 were $298 million, or $1.44 per diluted share, compared with 2022 operating earnings of $311 million, or $1.60 per diluted share. Operating earnings exclude non-recurring items, certain mark-to market adjustments and discontinued operations. Reconciliations of reported earnings to operating earnings are included at the end of this news release.

“This year we were faced with unprecedented headwinds which impacted our 2023 operating EPS guidance, but through the incredible work of our highly engaged team, DTE continues to be in a good position to offset the majority of the challenges and continue to deliver for our customers, our community and our investors. We remain heavily focused on continuing to invest the strategic capital that further supports the transition to cleaner generation and improved grid reliability in the face of changing weather patterns and increasing electrification,” Jerry Norcia, DTE Energy Chairman and CEO, said. “We are well-positioned to do this work while continuing to provide positive results for our stakeholders.”

Norcia noted the following DTE accomplishments:

  • Overcame unprecedented headwinds: Implementing significant one-time O&M actions and capturing opportunities throughout the portfolio to offset the majority of storm and weather headwinds, while remaining focused on customer service excellence and reliability.

  • Filed DTE Electric Distribution Grid Plan: The five-year, $9 billion roadmap to build the grid of the future is expected to improve reliability by 60% over the next five years. It includes transitioning to a smart grid with full automation within five years, updating 90% of the circuits in Detroit, trimming 30,000 miles of trees and upgrading 10,000 miles of existing infrastructure.

  • Launched undergrounding pilot project: Work began in the City of Detroit in an area that will span five miles and two neighborhoods as part of a pilot program to bury power lines. The pilot will demonstrate reliability improvements for customers.

  • Awarded Energy Star Partner of the Year: According to Energy Star, “Earning an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award distinguishes corporate energy management programs. It is the highest level of EPA recognition.” DTE’s Energy Efficiency program also was named among the top five in the nation by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. By participating in DTE energy efficiency programs in 2022, DTE customers saved $418 million on energy bills.

  • Earned the C. Everett Koop National Health Award for programs designed to improve employee health: The Health Project, which seeks out, evaluates, promotes and disseminates the lessons learned from exemplary health promotion and disease prevention programs, recognized DTE’s use of evidence-based programs for employee wellness to achieve meaningful results. DTE’s program achieved participation rates exceeding 85%, reducing critical lifestyle-related health conditions, workers' compensation claims and workplace injuries.

  • Enrolled the City of Southfield in DTE’s MIGreenPower program: One of the largest programs of its kind in the country, MIGreenPower provides business and residential customers with renewable energy solutions and the opportunity to commit to a cleaner future by attributing energy use to Michigan-based renewable energy projects.

  • Started the fall planting season with the Detroit Tree Equity Partnership: In partnership with American Forests, the City of Detroit, Greening of Detroit and the Erb Foundation, the effort continues with the fall planting season with the aim of planting 5,500 trees, ultimately building toward the goal of 75,000 trees in targeted areas of Detroit. This spring, 4,329 trees were planted in the city. The partnership will ultimately improve the tree canopy and create jobs, while providing cooling summer shade.

Outlook for 2023

DTE Energy is revising 2023 operating EPS guidance from $6.09 - $6.40 to $5.65 - $5.85.

“2023 operating EPS guidance is updated to reflect additional headwinds from storms and cooler weather experienced in the third quarter. Our team continues to execute the plan to offset the majority of the unprecedented headwinds in 2023. DTE is well-positioned for future growth and to continue to deliver for our customers, communities, employees and shareholders,” David Ruud, DTE executive vice president and CFO, said.

Use of Operating Earnings Information - DTE Energy management believes that operating earnings provide a meaningful representation of the company’s earnings from ongoing operations and uses operating earnings as the primary performance measurement for external communications with analysts and investors. Internally, DTE Energy uses operating earnings to measure performance against budget and to report to the Board of Directors. Operating earnings is a non-GAAP measure and should be viewed as a supplement and not a substitute for reported earnings, which represents the company’s net income and the most comparable GAAP measure.
In this release, DTE Energy discusses 2023 operating earnings guidance. It is likely that certain items that impact the company's 2023 reported results will be excluded from operating results. Reconciliations to the comparable 2023 reported earnings guidance are not provided because it is not possible to provide a reliable forecast of specific line items (i.e. future non-recurring items, certain mark-to-market adjustments and discontinued operations). These items may fluctuate significantly from period to period and may have a significant impact on reported earnings.
