Ontario Power Generation Inc. Key Developments

Ontario Power Generation Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings and Production Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014

Ontario Power Generation Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings and production results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported revenue of CAD 1,160 million against CAD 1,244 million a year ago. Income before interest, income taxes, and extraordinary item was CAD 180 million against CAD 57 million a year ago. Net income attributable to the Shareholder was CAD 361 million against CAD 30 million a year ago. Cash flow provided by operating activities was CAD 360 million against CAD 391 million a year ago. Net income attributable to the shareholder before extraordinary gain was CAD 118 million compared to CAD 30 million for the same quarter in 2013. The increased earnings were mainly a result of increased nuclear generation, lower operations, maintenance and administration (OM&A) expenses, and lower salary costs due to headcount reductions. Net income attributable to the shareholder after extraordinary gain was CAD 361 million compared to CAD 30 million for the same quarter in 2013. The increase primarily reflects the recognition of an extraordinary gain of CAD 243 million related to the forty-eight previously unregulated hydroelectric facilities prescribed for rate regulation effective Jul. 1, 2014. The company reported that net income attributable to the shareholder for the quarter was CAD 1.41 per share, compared to CAD 0.12 per share, for the same quarter ended September 30, 2013. For the nine months, the company reported revenue of CAD 3,645 million against CAD 3,689 million a year ago. Income before interest, income taxes, and extraordinary item was CAD 649 million against CAD 229 million a year ago. Net income attributable to the Shareholder was CAD 718 million against CAD 131 million a year ago. Cash flow provided by operating activities was CAD 993 million against CAD 983 million a year ago. Return on common equity for the 12 months ended September 30, 2014 was 7.7%. Net income attributable to the Shareholder before extraordinary gain was CAD 475 million compared to CAD 131 million for the same period in 2013. Net income attributable to the Shareholder after extraordinary gain was CAD 718 million compared to CAD 131 million for the same period in 2013. This increase was primarily due to the extraordinary gain recorded in the third quarter of 2014, and increased revenue from higher electricity spot market prices and trading revenue as a result of unseasonably cold weather during the first quarter in 2014. The improvement was also due to higher earnings from the Used Fuel Fund, an increase in nuclear generation, higher revenue from generating stations included in the Lower Mattagami River project, and lower salary costs due to headcount reductions. Net income attributable to the shareholder for the nine months was CAD 2.80 per share, compared to CAD 0.51 per share, for the same period ended September 30, 2013. For the quarter, the company reported the total electricity generation of 21.0 TWh against 20.1 TWh a year ago. This increase was mainly due to higher nuclear and regulated hydroelectric generation, partially offset by the impact of ending coal-fired generation. For the nine months, the company reported the total electricity generation of 61.3 TWh against 61.4 TWh for the same period in 2013 as the impact of ending coal-fired generation was partially offset by higher nuclear generation and generation from the hydroelectric stations included in the Lower Mattagami River project.

Ontario Power Generation Inc. Reports Financial and Operating Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2014

Ontario Power Generation Inc. reported financial and operating results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014. Net income attributable to the province for the second quarter of 2014 was $115 million compared to $73 million for the same quarter in 2013. Revenue was $1,098 million compared to $1,190 million for the same quarter in 2013. Income before interest and income taxes was $119 million compared to $115 million for the same quarter in 2013. Net income was $116 million compared to $73 million for the same quarter in 2013. Cash flow provided by operating activities was $205 million compared to $347 million for the same quarter in 2013. OPG's income before interest and income taxes from the electricity generation business segments was $100 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared to $118 million in the same quarter of 2013. The decrease was a result of lower earnings from OPG's regulated segments, primarily due to higher Operations, maintenance and administration expenses related to planned outage activities. The decrease from the regulated segments was partially offset by higher earnings from the Contracted Generation Portfolio segment. Net income attributable to the province for the six months ended Jun. 30, 2014 was $357 million compared to $101 million for the same period in 2013. The improvement was also due to higher earnings from the Used Fuel Fund, and higher generation revenue from generating stations included in the Lower Mattagami River project and the Thunder Bay generating station (GS). Revenue was $2,485 million compared to $2,445 million for the same period in 2013. Income before interest and income taxes was $469 million compared to $172 million for the same period in 2013. Net income was $359 million compared to $101 million for the same period in 2013. Cash flow provided by operating activities was $633 million compared to $592 million for the same period in 2013. Return on common equity was 4.3% as on June 30, 2014 compared to 1.5% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013. The increase in income before interest and income taxes of $10 million for the Services, Trading, and other Non-Generation business segment for the first half of 2014 was primarily a result of higher trading margin for electricity sold to neighbouring energy markets. Total electricity generation was 19.8 TWh, compared to 20.0 TWh for the same quarter in 2013. This decrease was mainly due to lower generation from the hydroelectric stations prescribed for rate regulation effective Jul. 1, 2014. Total electricity generation for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was 40.3 TWh, compared to 41.3 TWh for the same period in 2013. This decrease was mainly due to lower generation from the Contracted Generation Portfolio segment and lower production from the hydroelectric stations subject to rate regulation effective July 1, 2014.
