OGE Energy Corp. reports higher earnings for 2012 PR Newswire OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 27, 2013 OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --OGE Energy Corp. (NYSE: OGE), parent company of Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company (OG&E) and OGE Enogex Holdings LLC (Enogex), today reported earnings of $3.58 per average diluted share in 2012, compared with earnings of $3.45 per average diluted share in 2011. In 2012, OG&E, a regulated electric utility, reported net income of $280 million and contributed $2.83 per diluted share, compared with $263 million, or $2.65 per diluted share in 2011. Enogex, a midstream natural gas pipeline business, reported net income of $74 million, or $0.75 per diluted share in 2012, compared to net income of $82 million, or $0.83 per diluted share in 2011. The holding company posted breakeven results in 2012, compared with a loss of $0.03 per diluted share in the prior period. "Execution of key multi-year initiatives was our focus for 2012," said Pete Delaney, OGE Energy chairman, president and CEO. "At the utility, we completed our smart meter deployment on time and under budget, and made appreciable progress in our transmission build out, which contributed to our strong utility earnings. At Enogex, we continue to develop our existing acreage dedications, which should provide gathering and processing volume growth for years to come." Fourth Quarter Results For the three months ended Dec. 31, 2012, OGE Energy reported earnings of $0.39 per diluted share, compared with $0.37 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase was due to higher gross margins at OG&E primarily from increased transmission revenue, recovery of various utility investments and new customer growth in the fourth quarter compared to the same period last year partially offset by higher operating expenses and increased ownership in Enogex by OGE's equity partner. Discussion of 2012 results OGE Energy reported consolidated gross margin of $1.8 billion in 2012, compared with $1.6 billion in 2011. Operating income was $677 million in 2012, compared with $647 million in 2011. Net income was $355 million in 2012, compared with $343 million in 2011. OG&E reported gross margin of $1.3 billion in 2012, compared with $1.2 billion in 2011. OG&E's higher net income, $280 million in 2012 compared with $263 million in 2011, was primarily attributed to recovery of various utility investments, transmission revenues associated with new projects, new customer growth and production tax credits related to wind farms, partially offset by higher operating and interest expenses. Enogex reported gross margin of $489 million in 2012, compared to $441 million in 2011. Enogex's gross margin increased 11 percent from 2011, as a result of higher gathering, processing and condensate volumes. Enogex's higher gross margins were offset by increased operating and interest expenses associated with system expansion and increased ownership percentage in Enogex by OGE's equity partner. Enogex's net income attributable to OGE decreased in 2012 to $74 million compared with $82 million in 2011. OGE Energy's portion of EBITDA increased from $223 million in 2011 to $237 million in 2012. 2013 Outlook OGE Energy consolidated earnings guidance for 2013 is $3.35 to $3.60 per averaged diluted share. The guidance assumes approximately 100 million average diluted shares outstanding and normal weather for the year. More information regarding the Company's 2013 earnings guidance and the Company's 2012 financial results is contained in the Company's Form 10-K filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Conference Call Webcast OGE Energy will host a conference call for discussion of the results and the outlook for 2013 at 8 a.m. CST on Wednesday, Feb. 27. The conference will be available through www.oge.com. OGE Energy is the parent company of Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company (OG&E), which serves approximately 798,000 customers in a service territory spanning 30,000 square miles in Oklahoma and western Arkansas, and of OGE Enogex Holdings LLC, a natural gas pipeline business with principal operations in Oklahoma. Non-GAAP Financial Measures Enogex has included in this release the non-GAAP financial measure EBITDA. Enogex defines EBITDA as net income attributable to Enogex Holdings before interest, income taxes and depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure used by external users of the Company's financial statements such as investors, commercial banks and others, to assess: othe financial performance of Enogex's assets without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis; oEnogex's operating performance and return on capital as compared to other companies in the midstream energy sector, without regard to financing or capital structure; and othe viability of acquisitions and capital expenditure projects and the overall rates of return on alternative investment opportunities. Enogex provides a reconciliation of EBITDA to net income attributable to Enogex Holdings, which Enogex considers to be its most directly comparable financial measure as calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measure of EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income attributable to Enogex Holdings. EBITDA is not a presentation made in accordance with GAAP and has important limitations as an analytical tool. EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of Enogex's results as reported under GAAP. Because EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income and is defined differently by different companies in Enogex's industry, Enogex's definition of EBITDA may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure of other companies. To compensate for the limitations of EBITDA as an analytical tool, Enogex believes it is important to review the comparable GAAP measure and understand the differences between the measures.
