PNM Resources (PNM) today released the company's 2019 second quarter results. In addition, management affirmed its 2019 consolidated ongoing earnings guidance of $2.05 to $2.11 per diluted share.

"Temperatures, and financial results, during the quarter reflected New Mexico's mildest second quarter in 20 years," said Pat Vincent-Collawn, PNM Resources' chairman, president and CEO. "On July 1, PNM took its next step toward meeting its goal of 100 percent emissions-free energy by 2040 by filing for the abandonment, securitization and replacement of the San Juan Generating Station. We look forward to working with our stakeholders to implement a plan that achieves sizable emission reductions, saves customers money and meets reliability standards."

  • GAAP earnings during the second quarter of 2019 included the $104 million after tax write-off of assets previously under appeal with the New Mexico Supreme Court following the order confirming disallowance of these assets from retail rate base.
  • Significantly milder temperatures in the second quarter of 2019 compared to higher than normal temperatures in the second quarter of 2018 resulted in lower retail load and additional revenue impacts, including lower than expected impacts of the second phase of revised retail rates implemented in January 2019 resulting from the timing of amortized excess deferred income taxes.
  • Earnings were also impacted in the second quarter of 2019 by expected higher plant outage costs, lower transmission margins, and additional depreciation and property tax expenses related to new capital investments. These impacts were offset by the refinancing of debt in 2018 at lower interest rates and higher decommissioning and reclamation trust gains.

  • TNMP's GAAP and ongoing earnings increased in the second quarter of 2019 due to the combined implementation of new base rates approved in December 2018 and a Transmission Cost of Service (TCOS) rate increase in March 2019. 
  • These increases were offset by higher depreciation and property tax expenses resulting from additional capital investments and lower customer usage from milder temperatures.

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995
Statements made in this news release for PNM Resources, Inc. ("PNMR"), Public Service Company of New Mexico ("PNM"), or Texas-New Mexico Power Company ("TNMP") (collectively, the "Company") that relate to future events or expectations, projections, estimates, intentions, goals, targets, and strategies are made pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Readers are cautioned that all forward-looking statements are based upon current expectations and estimates. PNMR, PNM, and TNMP assume no obligation to update this information. Because actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements, PNMR, PNM, and TNMP caution readers not to place undue reliance on these statements. PNMR's, PNM's, and TNMP's business, financial condition, cash flow, and operating results are influenced by many factors, which are often beyond their control, that can cause actual results to differ from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. For a discussion of risk factors and other important factors affecting forward-looking statements, please see the Company's Form 10-K and Form 10-Q filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which factors are specifically incorporated by reference herein.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
GAAP refers to generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. Ongoing earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of net unrealized mark-to-market gains and losses on economic hedges, the net change in unrealized gains and losses on investment securities, pension expense related to previously disposed of gas distribution business, and certain non-recurring, infrequent, and other items that are not indicative of fundamental changes in the earnings capacity of the Company's operations. The Company uses ongoing earnings and ongoing earnings per diluted share (or ongoing diluted earnings per share) to evaluate the operations of the Company and to establish goals, including those used for certain aspects of incentive compensation, for management and employees. While the Company believes these financial measures are appropriate and useful for investors, they are not measures presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company does not intend for these measures, or any piece of these measures, to represent any financial measure as defined by GAAP. Furthermore, the Company's calculations of these measures as presented may or may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company uses ongoing earnings guidance to provide investors with management's expectations of ongoing financial performance over the period presented. While the Company believes ongoing earnings guidance is an appropriate measure, it is not a measure presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company does not intend for ongoing earnings guidance to represent an expectation of net earnings as defined by GAAP. Since the future differences between GAAP and ongoing earnings are frequently outside the control of the Company, management is generally not able to estimate the impact of the reconciling items between forecasted GAAP net earnings and ongoing earnings guidance, nor their probable impact on GAAP net earnings without unreasonable effort, therefore, management is generally not able to provide a corresponding GAAP equivalent for ongoing earnings guidance. Reconciliations between GAAP and ongoing earnings are contained in schedules 1-5.
