Spire color logo
Spire color logo
  • Second quarter fiscal 2021 net income of $187.4 million ($3.55 per diluted share), compared to $133.6 million ($2.54 per share) in the prior year

  • Net economic earnings* (NEE) of $195.6 million ($3.71 per share), up from $144.0 million ($2.75 per share) a year ago, reflecting strong Spire Marketing performance

  • Results for Spire Marketing include value created during the February cold weather event, and our fiscal 2021 NEE guidance range has been increased to $4.30 - $4.50 per share

"During February's severe winter weather, teams across Spire ensured our communities maintained access to the energy they needed to stay safe and warm, while doing everything we could to minimize impact to cost. At the same time, our Spire Marketing business was well positioned to meet customer needs, while also capturing additional value," said Suzanne Sitherwood, president and chief executive officer. "Our exceptional operating performance reflects thoughtful preparation and the benefits of our investments in natural gas supply, storage resources and the Spire STL Pipeline. We are also delivering on our commitment to be a carbon neutral company by midcentury, and will be issuing an update on our ESG progress next week in our third annual Corporate Social Responsibility report."

*Non-GAAP, see "Net Economic Earnings and Reconciliation to GAAP."

Consolidated net income for the three months ended March 31, 2021, the second quarter of our fiscal year, was $187.4 million ($3.55 per diluted share), up from $133.6 million ($2.54 per share) a year ago.

Net economic earnings (NEE) for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $195.6 million ($3.71 per share) up from $144.0 million ($2.75 per share) last year, reflecting especially strong Gas Marketing performance, improved performance at our gas utilities and lower interest expense.

NEE excludes from net income the impacts of fair value accounting and timing adjustments associated with energy-related transactions, the impacts of acquisition, divestiture and restructuring activities, and the largely non-cash impacts of impairments and other non-recurring or unusual items such as certain regulatory, legislative, or GAAP standard-setting actions.

Gas Utility

The Gas Utility segment includes the regulated distribution operations of our five gas utilities across Alabama, Mississippi and Missouri. Second quarter NEE was $159.7 million, up from $144.3 million in the prior year, reflecting a higher contribution margin and lower expenses after removing the impact of the reclassification of certain pension costs to "Other Income (Expense)" below the operating income line.

Contribution margin increased $22.0 million, reflecting higher usage of $7.3 million. Degree days in the current year quarter were about 2% warmer than normal in Missouri and Alabama, but 11% and 32% colder versus the prior year, respectively, resulting in higher usage compared to the prior year. Margin also benefited from higher Infrastructure System Replacement Surcharge (ISRS) revenues of $6.6 million (including an ISRS rulings provision of $2.2 million last year), and favorable rate adjustments at Spire Alabama of $4.3 million.

Operation and maintenance (O&M) expenses of $104.0 million for the quarter were $8.2 million higher than the same period a year ago. However, after removing a $19.1 million year-over-year impact from the reclassification of certain pension costs to below the operating income line (no bottom line impact), and a court ruling that reversed $9.0 million of pension charge due to disallowed costs in Spire Missouri's last rate case, O&M expenses were down $1.9 million. This decrease reflects lower costs for operational, administrative and employee-related expenses. Depreciation and amortization expenses increased $2.5 million from last year, reflecting incremental capital investment. Taxes other than income taxes increased $4.7 million due to higher gross receipts taxes.

Gas Marketing

The Gas Marketing segment includes the results of Spire Marketing, which provides natural gas marketing services across most of the United States. Second quarter NEE was $39.8 million, up from $5.1 million in the prior year. During the quarter, Spire Marketing saw significantly higher volumes and margins as a result of extreme market conditions due to the February cold weather event, including monetizing incremental storage capacity.

Other

Other gas-related operations and corporate costs on an NEE basis for the second quarter were $3.9 million in fiscal 2021, compared to $5.4 million a year ago reflecting improved performance at Spire Storage and lower interest expense.

*Non-GAAP, see "Net Economic Earnings and Reconciliation to GAAP."

For the first six months of fiscal 2021, we reported consolidated net income of $276.3 million ($5.20 per diluted share) compared to $200.6 million ($3.77 per share) for the prior year.

NEE for the six months ended March 31, 2021 was $272.5 million ($5.12 per share), up from $215.8 million ($4.06 per share) a year ago. The increase in NEE reflects higher Gas Marketing and Gas Utility earnings, and lower other costs.

Gas Utility

For the first six months of fiscal 2021, the Gas Utility segment reported NEE of $236.1 million, up $22.7 million from a year ago, reflecting a higher contribution margin offset by slightly higher operating expenses (excluding the pension reclassification noted earlier).

Year-to-date segment contribution margin increased by $29.6 million. The higher margin reflects a $13.1 million increase in ISRS revenues (including the ISRS ruling provision last year) for our Missouri utilities, and a net year-to-date rate adjustment of $3.0 million for Spire Alabama. Margin also benefitted by $8.4 million from higher usage due to colder weather compared to the prior-year period.

O&M expenses increased by $2.6 million compared to the prior-year period. However, after removing the $18.1 million pension reclassification and adjusting for the $9.0 million reversal of a 2018 pension charge noted earlier, O&M was down $6.5 million, reflecting lower operations and employee-related expenses. Depreciation and amortization rose by $4.7 million reflecting increased capital investment across our utilities.

Gas Marketing

NEE was $43.1 million in the first half of fiscal 2021, up from $11.2 million in the prior-year period, driven by the strong second quarter results this year as a result of extreme market conditions due to the February 2021 cold weather event including optimization of incremental storage positions.

Other

On an NEE basis, year-to-date other gas-related operations and corporate costs were $6.7 million, down from $8.8 million in the prior-year period. The improvement was driven by better results from Spire Storage, offset by slightly higher corporate costs.

Balance Sheets and Cash Flow

In the second quarter of fiscal 2021, we maintained a solid capital structure and ample liquidity. Short-term borrowings outstanding at March 31, 2021, were $653.5 million, up from $560.6 million at March 31, 2020, reflecting lower cash flow from operations and seasonal working capital needs that typically peak during the winter. We retain significant capacity in our revolving credit facility, cash position and related commercial paper program to meet our liquidity needs. To maintain financial flexibility in the wake of the February cold weather event, Spire Missouri entered into a 364-day term loan for $250 million on March 23, 2021.

On February 18, 2021, Spire completed an offering of Equity Units for gross proceeds of $175 million, initially recorded as long-term debt. Net proceeds were used, in part, to repay short-term debt under our commercial paper program. This offering satisfies our planned equity needs for fiscal 2021.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $159.2 million for the six months ended March 31, 2021, down from $321.7 million for the first six months of fiscal 2020, largely due to fluctuations in working capital balances.

Capital expenditures for the first half of fiscal 2021 were $303.5 million, down from $346.1 million in the prior year mainly due to decreased investment in the Spire STL Pipeline that was placed into service early in fiscal 2020. Capital expenditures for our gas utilities were up slightly from last year.

For additional details on Spire's results for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, please see the accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income, Balance Sheets, and Statements of Cash Flows.

Guidance and Outlook

As a result of the performance of Spire Marketing in our second quarter, we are increasing our fiscal 2021 NEE expectation range to $4.30 - $4.50 per share. First half results and our strong financial position at March 31 also allowed us to reduce our planned equity needs through 2023.

Our annual long-term NEE per share growth target remains 5-7 percent, driven by continued, consistent growth of our gas utilities. Our long-term targets are based on expected annual rate base growth of 7-8 percent driven by investment in pipeline upgrades as well as technology upgrades and new business. The pipeline upgrades enhance system reliability and safety while supporting further reductions in methane emissions.

We affirm our 5-year capital expenditures outlook through fiscal 2025 of $3.0 billion and our expected fiscal 2021 investment of $590 million.

Regulatory Matters

Missouri rate review progressing

Our Missouri rate review continues to progress according to schedule. The next milestones in the procedural schedule call for other interested parties to the case to submit their testimony on May 12 in regard to revenue requirements. This will include recommendations on return on equity and capital structure. Then on May 26, they will submit testimony on rate design.

Spire Missouri will update information in its initial filing through the test year update period ending May 31, 2021. Local public hearings are scheduled for late June, with hearings before the Missouri Public Service Commission (MoPSC) slated for July and August.

Spire Missouri filed its rate review with the MoPSC in December 2020, seeking recovery of costs and more than $850 million in capital investments since 2018 to make our system safer, more reliable and cleaner for our customers and communities.

Dividends

The Spire board of directors has declared a quarterly common stock dividend of $0.65 per share, payable July 2, 2021, to shareholders of record on June 11, 2021. We have continuously paid a cash common stock dividend since 1946, with 2021 marking the 18th consecutive year of increasing dividends on an annualized basis.

The board also declared the regular quarterly dividend of $0.36875 per depositary share on Spire's 5.90 percent Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock payable August 16, 2021, to holders of record on July 26, 2021.

Cautionary Statements on Forward-Looking Information and Non-GAAP Measures

This news release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Spire's future operating results may be affected by various uncertainties and risk factors, many of which are beyond the Company's control, including weather conditions, economic factors, the competitive environment, governmental and regulatory policy and action, and risks associated with acquisitions. More complete descriptions and listings of these uncertainties and risk factors can be found in the Company's annual (Form 10-K) filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

This news release includes the non-GAAP financial measures of "net economic earnings," "net economic earnings per share," and "contribution margin." Management also uses these non-GAAP measures internally when evaluating the Company's performance and results of operations. Net economic earnings exclude from net income the impacts of fair value accounting and timing adjustments associated with energy-related transactions, the impacts of acquisition, divestiture and restructuring activities and the largely non-cash impacts of impairments and other non-recurring or unusual items such as certain regulatory, legislative, or GAAP standard-setting actions. The fair value and timing adjustments, which primarily impact the Gas Marketing segment, include net unrealized gains and losses on energy-related derivatives resulting from the current changes in the fair value of financial and physical transactions prior to their completion and settlement, lower of cost or market inventory adjustments, and realized gains and losses on economic hedges prior to the sale of the physical commodity. Management believes that excluding these items provides a useful representation of the economic impact of actual settled transactions and overall results of ongoing operations. Contribution margin adjusts revenues to remove the costs that are directly passed on to customers and collected through revenues, which are the wholesale cost of natural gas and gross receipts taxes. These internal non-GAAP operating metrics should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, GAAP measures such as operating income, net income, or earnings per share.

Income tax effect is calculated by applying federal, state, and local income tax rates applicable to ordinary income to the amounts of the pre-tax reconciling items and then adding any estimated effects of enacted state or local income tax laws for periods before the related effective date.

Net economic earnings per share is calculated by replacing consolidated net income with consolidated net economic earnings in the GAAP diluted EPS calculation, which includes reductions for cumulative preferred dividends and participating shares.
